I have fallen in love with Fridays. Most days of the week are either astoundingly stressful (Mondays and Wednesdays), too intellectually challenging to allow me to unhook my brain for long enough to contemplate anything other than the three classes I go to on those days (Tuesdays and Thursdays, where Information Systems, Accounting, and Statistics are on the menu in one five-hour marathon of the mind), too anarchic (Saturdays, my one true day off, when I spend the bulk of it gaming and ignoring the rest of the world), or my catch-up day when my time is spoken for in a different way each week (Sunday).
Friday? Let me walk you through it.
I get up at 10:00 in the morning. Of late, my rule of thumb has been "first person to ask nicely gets access to me between 10 and 3." This generally means dating (or a reasonable facsimile) with available women, going to someplace fun and doing something I enjoy, or just enjoying the good weather (and the past three Fridays have featured lovely weather in spades.) Hell, sometimes it just involves flirting with the girl at the convenience store then going to throw bread at ducks.
Four o'clock rolls around and I'm drinking coffee (decaf; I don't want to stay up all night!) and writing fiction with a creative group composed of some people who might just be screwier than I am. Eventually we're going to put something on the radio. By the time the meeting ends at six, my creative batteries are fully charged and I'm probably thoroughly astounded as to the good fortune I've had in finding creative people.
Fast-forward through my walk home and I've probably managed to come into some nachos (mmm, nachos) and a lovely beverage, meaning it must be time for boxing. Watching two guys pummel each other for ten rounds is one of life's unsung pleasures, and if there's a spectacular knockout or two in the process I'm probably bouncier than Tigger on uppers for having watched it.
After that? Video games! And not in the anarchic "not sure what I want to play" Saturday style. I usually have my game picked out during the week and I play it from 9:00 onward.
Yeah. I love Fridays. I think Robert Smith might've been on to something singing about them.
