Year End Wrap Around

Yes, we know that the year officially ended after that magical second on Wednesday night. And yet, here we sit, not quite ready to let the end of the year go quite yet. This is due to a number of things, ranging from the fact that yesterday was a vacation day, today's a Friday, and we're just all around lazy when it comes to finding stories for today. But that's just fine by us, which is why we present to you today's list...

The Top 7 Days of the Week

7. Tuesday
There's really nothing glamorous about Tuesdays. Sure, they aren't Mondays, but at least Monday gets people riled up and passionate. Tuesday? People are just hoping that there's something on television.

6. Thursday
Thursday isn't much better than Tuesday in the grand scheme of things. It's not quite Friday, but it's closer than Wednesday is. In fact, the only thing that Thursday really has going for it is that it is sort of the beginning of the weekend, or at least it was in college. And when a day is best looked at as an excuse to get to the bars early, you know it's got problems.

5. Sunday
We feel bad bashing on a weekend day, specifically the day of rest, but there's just one major problem with Sunday. It's hard to really enjoy the day when you know that work is looming a mere 24 hours away.

4. Wednesday
Yes, we rate this higher than Sunday. After all, it has the nickname of "Hump Day". We all know that they aren't talking about camels...

3. Friday
This is the day when the weekend really gets rolling, and, even if you work a 9-5 M-F job, it's usually one of the more palatable. Besides, for night owls like us, Friday provides the first real opportunity to stay awake longer than you should without having anything important to do the next day.

2. Saturday
Saturday's kind of like Friday at the end of it, with things to do, reasons to stay up late, and an overall drive towards enjoying the hours without worrying about work the next day. As an extra bonus, Saturday allows people to sleep in, giving them the energy for that late night. And yet, it still comes in at number 2 on our list.

1. Payday
It doesn't matter what day of the week this falls on. Any day where you can walk away with more money in your pocket (or bank account) than you had at the start of the day is automatically the best day of the week. And just think, some criminals get to experience payday every day!

Cheers, one and all. We'll be back next week, returning to our regularly scheduled programming.
