Tuesday - The Kick in the Balls of Weekdays

I've always been under the opinion that Tuesdays are the worst day of the week.

Most people make the case that Monday, the beginning of the work week, is the worst day of the week.  This is evidenced as to how most try to cling to the weekend for as long as humanly possible, as if trying to stay up late on Sunday night will prevent the inevitable.  That said, once Monday arrives, it does allow for a bit of naive optimism that the fresh start of a new week brings.  "Yes, this week will surely be better than last week," you tell yourself as you cram a Pop-Tart down your throat and scamper off to work ready to trade stories of weekend fun with some colleagues by the coffee machine.
That tiger blouse would look better on the floor of my bass boat...Rawr!

Tuesday on the other hand brings the realization that this week is most likely going to suck just as bad as the last and well...there's still 4 more days to go until the weekend.  Tuesday doesn't have a fun name like "hump day," no, that's reserved for Wednesday.   There are not widely celebrated happy hours on Tuesday, that's usually set aside for Thirsty Thursday...and you certainly don't wear Hawaiian shirts to the office on Tuesday, as that festive fashion faux pas typically takes place on Fridays.  Thus my friends, Tuesday remains in my mind the worst day of the week.  What does it have going for it...Glee?  Don't even go there, it's mere presence on the Tuesday night TV schedule only further proves my point.

Because of this, I spent quite a bit of time wracking my brain trying to think of something to make today's (Tuesday's) read a bit more enjoyable.  See, general snarkiness aside, I'm not really a "glass half-empty" kind of guy. Unfortunately, my brain doesn't respond well to wracking, so when all else fails, one must revert to a common formula to find happiness.  Have a terrific Tuesday everyone.
