Tuesdays

Quote of the day: “Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.” ~ Gertrude Stein

Song of the day: “Two by Two” by Dave Matthews Band

State of mind: cluttered

Date: First official day of summer! aka June 21, 2005

Today is Tuesday. Which means nothing. It’s just the day after Monday. Poor Tuesday. Doesn’t really have an identity of it’s own. Monday is the day all dread and Wednesday gets the giggle inducing name of “hump day”, Thursday used to be Must See TV day… not so much anymore, although it is also the day that Arthur Dent could never get a hang of. I’m with him BTW. And Friday is the day we all thank the Gods for. But Tuesday is neglected. Occasionally a radio station will have a two-fer on Tuesday. Two songs by the same artists, but is that enough of an identity for a DAY? I think not. It also has the dubious distinction of being the day that is used in the ever popular insult See You Next Tuesday. (And if you don’t know what that means, find a kid in jr. high and they will tell you.) I’m open to suggestions though. Have at it. What should be Tuesday’s identity?
All this really means is, I don’t have anything to blog. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.


Angel quote of the day:

Well, I don't know about where you're from, but here in NE it's Taco Tuesday at Taco John's. Of course, we don't have a Taco John's in my town, but I betI'd be pretty excited on Tuesdays if we did.

Henry said...

Yeah--I agree with Trina--In Pittsburgh Tuesday always seemed to be the cheap wing night.
Ask me next Tuesday, if I see you.

Henry said...

Taco Johns?? Not even Taco Juans?
Ha thats funny!!!

trinamick said...

They don't have them where you are either? They're a mall staple in these parts. Come to think of it, I don't know if I've seen one outside of NE & SD.

We have Taco Bell. That place with that annoying little dog that says: yo quiero Taco Bell?

Henry said...

I think the dog is long gone isnt he?
Now they say, "Think outside the bun"
Nope sorry never heard of Taco Johns--I heard of Taco Casa and Taco Bell

NYPinTA said...

Gone or not, it was still annoying.

trinamick said...

We have Taco Bell in NE too. The guy who was the voice of the chihuahua was on Comedy Central Presents last week. He says the voice never got him laid, but it helped his buddies a lot.

Now we in the UK take at least one Tuesday of the year seriously. We have like a good crépe that Tuesday, for it is Pancake Tuesday.

When I went to school, Tuesday was the day we most looked forward to. You see, it was free beer day at the local bar. They'd tap a keg at 7:00 pm and keep serving it till it was all gone. That usually meant 1 or 2 pitchers per table, but still, it was free...

Now the other $20 we'd each usually spend before and after... that we won't discuss...

NYPinTA said...

We call Pancake Day "Fat Tuesday" because in typical American fashion, we take things too far.
And it's apt.

LL, was this in grade school? Damn!

Umm, you forgot to blog that yesterday was the first day of summer. I know that was always one of your things... first day of summer, winter, etc...

NYPinTA said...

It's in the date line. :)

And I read that when the counter was at 5942. Coincidence?? I think not.
