Soooooooo Overalls Friday

College Football______check! (Cougs still suck)
Maximum Relaxation__check! (TheraFlu Maybe?)

After a long week of battling teenage stupidity, apathy and evil I am so ready for some off time. I love Fridays. I always have. They are like mini vacations every week. For one night you can officially forget about your life and just chill. Unlike a bad case of the Sundays where you have to simmer in your own self pity for having to return for not only a day but a whole week of work...eck! Fridays are so powerful that even Thursdays often ride their coat tails if the aforementioned Friday is a half day or day off.

On Fridays it doesn't matter if you half ass it...everyone else is just as wiped out and sick of all the bullshit so they are too. If you added up all the work that doesn't get done in American businesses, industry and school because of Fridays alone, you could probably end world hunger, disease, and poverty.

I'm guilty of it. "Hey don't worry about that uber important thing that you need to do, its Friday!"

"I was going to remind you what a huge moron you are but today I'll let it slide because its Friday and I won't have to deal with you for 2 point 5 days!"

Oh poor 9 to fivers (or in my case 6:30 to 5:30'ers), why do we do this over and over again? A constant cycle of Monday blues and Friday elation, our weekly bipolar undulation and frequency. Well I'm at the crest of this puppy!

Wish me luck fishing and good weather for Dirk tomorrow!

Why do we do this over and over again? Because, as you so aptly put it, sometimes you have to do things you don't want to, to earn the freedom to do whatever you want. Someday it will all make sense to you. You have a great life ahead of you!

Did you see those Cougs on Saturday?? Sure, Portland State may actually be worse than WSU (something I really didn't think was possible), but I can't help feeling a tiny bit of optimism for the coming weeks. Go Cougs!!
