The Bangles - Manic Monday
it's just another manic monday
i wish it were sunday
cause that's my fun day
my "i don't have to run" day
it's just another manic monday

Since when is Sunday ever anybody's "fun day?" I always thought Friday was "fun day." For school kids, it's the last day of school. For TVphiles, it used to be the case that TGIF was something to look forward to (Boy Meets World, Step by Step, etc.). For college students and young professionals, Friday is the day you usually get wasted partying. For professionals, every other Friday is (usually) payday.

So tell me why would anyone confuse your 'fun' day with Sunday? Sunday is the day that people wake up early to go to church (not really fun in my book), and also the day you spend dreading the upcoming week.

They could have gotten clever and said 'Satr-day' so it wouldn't be three syllables. Or just knock off that 'i' and say "wish it were saturday."

This has boggled my mind for quite some time. Any insights?

P.S. After the caffeine debacle this past weekend (driving back from DC was not fun during the 36th hour of my 'day'), I am giving up soft drinks and coffee for the month of July.

maybe his idea of "fun" directly correlates with his "dont' have to run". Sunday is usually the slow, relaxing day of the week. That could be considered fun for some people.

btw.. what was with the downtime yest?

Love that Bangles song! I heard that Prince wrote it for them when he was trying to get in Susanna Hoff's pants! :P
My take is people always have things to do on Fri/Sat, even if they're fun. For many folks Sunday is the only time they can do what they want to do, or do nothing...
Get a PUR water filter for your faucet and drink ice water... and yes, make the ice cubes from the filter too... :)
So... what happened to Tabulas yesterday??
