Awake!


Ok Wednesday! They call it hump day cause it's now the slide down to Friday. I don't particularly feel that it should be called that. To me Wednesdays are the awakening to the week!
Got past Monday...Easy Tuesday....Awake Wednesday!...yeah that's it, AWAKE! I usually can tackle anything on a Wednesday. Maybe that's because I was born on a Wednesday. Altho
"they" say "Wednesday's child is full of woe". Oh woe is me! :-) (not really, or at least not at the present moment). LOAP!

<<<<<<<(The god Woden, after whom 'Wednesday' was named. "Odin, the Wanderer" 1886 by Georg von Rosen (1843-1923)

Here's some facts about Wednesdays:

Wednesday is considered either the third or the fourth day of the week, between Tuesday and Thursday. The name comes from the Middle English Wednes dei, which is from Old English Wodnes dæg, meaning the day of the Germanic god Woden who was a god of the Anglo-Saxons in England until about the 7th century AD. Wodnes dæg is like the Old Norse Othinsdagr ("Odin's day"), which is an early translation of the Latin dies Mercurii ("Mercury's day").

An English language idiom for Wednesday is "hump day", a reference to making it through the middle of the work week as getting "over the hump". It is also unofficially (and with some irony) referred to as "the peak of the week".

On TV's The Addams Family, Wednesday (Lisa Loring) was the pale-skinned, black-haired daughter of Morticia and Gomez Addams

Ya know, I sat here, looking at the LOAP, wondering what the hell that was supposed to be. LOL

P.S.: I was born on the Sabbath Day. ;-)

MONDAY'S CHILD IS FAIR OF FACE
by Mother Goose

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good and gay.

(Geeze D, you never told me!!!!) LMAO
