Where Did Monday Come From?

I don't mean the origin of the word, which I find fascinating, and for a while at least, dominated my twitter stream. What I want to know is: how did it get to be Monday already?

Einstein once famously explained relativity by saying a hand on a hot stove for a moment can seem like an hour, and an hour with a beautiful woman can seem like an moment. In the same way, weekends, although two days long, generally go much faster than I'd like. Relativity again. It's science, and it sucks.

Anyhow, I've been debating (again) why I'm blogging, as I've become crappier and crappier at responding to comments, and of course, have found my writing time slashed to nearly nothing, as well as my time visiting others.

Sigh. Stupid time again. So, sorry everyone. I do read everyone's comments and appreciate them. I respond to some via email, but not everyone has that feature enabled. But I'm inconsistent and often miss things.

Now, where was I? Oh yes, Mondays. They suck. I have anecdotal evidence (i.e., me) that a person is only really good for about 30 hours or so of real, quality work in a given week. At least for the kind of work I do. So, I propose that the powers that be, without changing my salary, allow me to not work Mondays.

And I hope, for all that is good in this world, that they never read my blog.

Oh, I tweaked my logo, anyone notice?

meh,I never worry if someone responds to a comment I leave. So you can cross me off your guilt list, Rusty.

Yes, I noticed you changed the font on the logo. Very nice.

Hey, I can totally relate to the time thing. There aren't enough hours in the day to get through my "to do" list.

After attending the JRW conference, I learned that a lot of my time must be dedicated to marketing and social media. Guess I'm not telling you anything new. You're probably knee deep in this since the launch of "A Dead God's Wrath."

Put me in the same category as Deborah. Although it's always nice to hear from you, there's no need sweat it if you can't respond to my comments.

Take care.

Blog fatigue... no worries, no regrets, do as you need. Writing comes first (after family and self).

I like the new font, but I think I liked the old one better.

Actually, I kind of look forward to Mondays, at this point, but I can't get any writing done on the weekends.

I wonder how dark energy and the neutrino discovery are going to change our concepts of time.

Nice tweak to the Logo. And I agree with what Munk has said in the above comment.

Gah, I have devoted less and less time to writing too. I suspect Mondays have something to do with. Hmmm...

Logo looks cool!
I guess you don't want to hear that I had today off and slept in late...
And don't give up blogging. Find your balance. You know I'll visit every time no matter what you're talking about.

Sometimes life seems to screw up passions. But there's been a ton of focus lately on blog fatigue, so you're not alone. And at least it's not Monday the 13th. That's just a day to avoid.

If it weren't Monday, it would be another day. Perhaps I am a creature of habit but I like the previous font better, easier to read at a glance. Although I guess it is Your blog. :)
