“I’m not here on a Tuesday. I know, I know what you’re thinking- If I’m not here on a Tuesday, and we’re not open on a Tuesday, and today is Tuesday and I’m standing here, then how can it be. Well, it depends on how you look at it!” ~ Mr. O’Callahan in Laws of Attraction.

Edit: New Flash Posted!:  Perfect; Witch Hunt.


So, as predicted, yesterday didn’t end happy.  In fact, in ended quite awfully.  I cried myself to sleep… for dumb reasons I don’t wish to discuss.  But you know what?  For once, Bryan was there the whole time.  That meant a whole lot to me.  Because traditionally, he’s not.  I was talking to him via text message of all things, and he could tell I was upset.  Granted, I wanted him to tell… but the point is that he did.  He usually doesn’t.  I can say “I’m crying, show me love?” and generally he’ll say “I’m sorry.  I love you.”  but this time he didn’t.  He tried to call, he let me vent, of all things he offered to find me Sean’s number so I could talk to someone else about it besides him.  For Bryan, that’s huge.  But I didn’t want to talk to Sean, and at any rate, I have his number, and his phone is dead until he gets a new charger, or a new phone.  Still.  Wow.  I think I stared at that message for a good five minutes before I responded.  I can’t explain how big of a deal it was that he said that.  But no, it made me feel better to talk to him, and talking to Sean would totally not have helped anyway, in this case.  So he’s getting a big kiss when I see him for being wonderful.  Because he’s earned it.  Erm.  Bryan, not Sean.

I don’t know where today is going to go.  I feel like it’s going to be a so-so kind of day.  Not the kind of day I was hoping for on a Tuesday.

This is the point where I get to choose if I’m going to talk about friends and the abstraction which is friendship for the third day in a row (because it’s utmost on my mind) or if I will talk about something entirely different.  I’m going to go with something entirely different, because I feel like a broken record.  We’re going to talk about Tuesdays.

For some reason, Tuesday just seems to be that-day-of-the-week.  I mean, there’s a whole improvisational theatre game called “It’s Tuesday” where you have to start every scene with “It’s Tuesday” and attempt to create an amazing scene from that.  Then there’s the quotation above.  I watched Laws of Attraction Sunday night and I need to emphasize how amazing it is.  Anyone with any respect for either romance or comedy should see it (SHOOT!  I forgot to bring Two Weeks Notice for Sammy!  … Oh well.  I’ll see her Friday).  But I digress.  Laws of Attraction is, believe it or not, relevant to Tuesday due to that quotation above.  Tuesday is practically a character in that movie.  If it weren’t for the fact that it was Tuesday, Julianne Moore’s character would have gotten a car and she wouldn’t’ve driven with Pierce Brosnan’s character, which eventually led to hours of bonding, which led to them going to a local festival, which led to other things that will spoil the entire plot if I tell.  Point and fact?  If it weren’t for Tuesday, there would be no plot in that movie.  Tuesday is incredibly important.  Why?

Okay.  I understand Monday.  I daresay Garfield made Mondays important, not to mention they’re the head of the work week.  Fridays?  Same deal.  I get it.  Schoolchildren all across the United States worship the concept of Friday, because it leads them into Saturday, which is, of course, no school.  Wednesday is the middle of the week.  Kinda exciting, I s’pose.  And there’s a character in the Addam’s Family named Wednesday.  Saturday and Sunday get props for being the weekend.  But Tuesdays and Thursdays?  They seem entirely unimportant.  Thursday never gets any press… why does Tuesday?

I actually don’t have an answer.  I’m just wondering.

I just learned that WordPress has a word limit.  It’s probably a good thing, because I could go on and on and in fact was trying to.  But it seemed to cut me off at 800 words.  Oh well.  Y’all can read exclusively about Tuesdays, I suppose.  They’re an interesting enough topic.  Especially on a Tuesday!!!

something to think about

"You know, I don't know if you'll understand this or not, but sometimes, even when I'm feeling very low, I'll see some little thing that will somehow renew my faith. Something like that leaf, for instance - clinging to its tree despite wind and storm. You know, that makes me think that courage and tenacity are about the greatest values a man can have. Suddenly my old confidence is back and I know things aren't half as bad as I make them out to be. Suddenly I know that with the strength of his convictions a man can move mountains, and I can proceed with full confidence in the basic goodness of my fellow man. I know that now. I know it." ~ End of Act I in the musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
