Just Another Manic Monday

Every week it's the same thing -- people in the elevator bemoaning the appearance of another Monday. I, for one, am sick of it.

Mondays are, to me, filled with a sense of renewal. They are the clean slate upon which we begin each week. Mondays are fresh and clean, with the light wind of the weekend blowing us on toward bigger and better things. Every Monday is a chance to start anew, and to get a jump on the week ahead.

Fridays, on the other hand, are universally welcomed. We have a cliche named for this feeling. Hell, we even have a restaurant chain named in honor of that cliche! But Fridays are, inevitably, the days in which everything comes to a head. All of the stuff we didn't get to during the week finally piles up too high for us to ignore, and we find ourselves at four in the afternoon on Friday, staring down the nose of the evening, waiting for the sky to turn dark with evening's shadow, and realizing that we still have so much to do.

So that's why I welcome the newness of Mondays, and gleefully skip to work when that day comes around. Join me in a cheerful "hurrah for Mondays" -- just stand up, wherever you are, and shout it out. You could even try "hooray" or "huzzah."

Mondays aren't all bad, but I understand the sentiment.

I believe I once made the case for tuesday being the worst day of the week.

Thanks for finally giving Mondays their due. Mondays are underrated,

For someone who appreciates Shabbat as much as you do, you are a bit down on Fridays.

You know how I feel about Mondays, the clean slate is not enough to make up for all I have to do in a week. Of course the prediction for nice weather all week has made this Monday not so bad.

Until I started my own company 10 years ago, Monday was, without question, the worst day of the week. Actually, Sunday night, thinking about Monday, was really bad.

I like Mondays too, unlike the Psych Furs (I had to replace your song in my head with another one!). Also wanted to say thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog, to support Greyhound Rescue!

A response to my wife: yes, I do love Shabbat (which, for those of you who don't know, is a Jewish thing and starts at sundown on Friday evening), and so I dread the tail end of Fridays at the office, when I begin to wonder if I will, in fact, make it home for Shabbat dinner with my family.

Shabbat. What's that?

I made some challah bread the other day with the kids. It was good.

Oh, and my clone army is growing.I'm proud. I can blow smoke all I want.

Fridays aren't all that bad. Sure, every deadline gets put on a Friday, but half the time the deadline gets bumped to Monday or Tuesday. In my current case, Tuesday, so I'll have to agree with Hector...

I once wrote about how Wednesday felt it got the shaft. Mondays aren't so bad. Everyone should be well rested and ready to go.

It's mid week you gotta watch out for.:(

"Fridays" makes me want to put on a piece of "flair."

Hell, we even have a restaurant chain named in honor of that cliche!While on the subject of cultural archetypes, let's consider the possibility that our attitudes towards Mondays might have something to do with a funny-papers cat whose name starts with "Garfield." :)

(And thanks for stopping by my blog.)
