Rant #491: The Day After Sunday

Yes, it's Monday, the day after Sunday.

I don't bet that was a revelation to you, but it is a fact.

Mondays have been written about from many angles, and there are numerous songs celebrating the day from the opposite sides of the pole.

Remember the Mamas and the Papas' "Monday Monday"? How about the Boomtown Rats' "I Don't Like Mondays"?

You can't go from one polar opposite about the day to another more than these two songs demonstrate.

I know that I couldn't get up from bed this morning. But I pushed myself, and I did what I had to do to prepare for the day.

Let's see what's happening.

Passover is just about over, and it will be completed by sundown tomorrow. I have had my fill of matzoh, so I look ahead to when I can have a piece of bread again.

I hope everyone had a good Easter Sunday.

Me, I didn't venture out of the house yesterday, with the exception of when I had to walk the dog.

I didn't use my car, so I fulfilled a requisite of Earth Day, to watch how I use our natural resources.

I watched televised sports the entire day.

I watched the Yankees blow a lead and finally win an excruciating game that when on forever due to rain delays and the poor pitching of the Yankees' relief staff. They beat the Orioles, but the game went on forever until it reached its conclusion.

On the other hand, I watched the Knicks get bounced out of the NBA playoffs by the Celtics. Also excruciating, at least it was quick.

Then, in the evening, I promised my son we would watch one of his WWE wrestling videos. The WWE does not want the public to know that it is a wrestling organization first and foremost, so it does not go under the World Wrestling Entertainment monicker anymore, just WWE, at least as of a week or two ago. This could have fooled me, because what they do, first and foremost, is put on top-level professional wrestling shows. The other stuff they do is low-grade.

So I was busy basically doing nothing this weekend.

The same won't be the case today, as I have a pile of things to do at work.

And that is what makes Monday the most interesting day of the week.

You often go from the relaxation of a weekend to the hectic pace of the work week, all within a few hours.

That's why I find the perkiness of the early morning TV news anchors incredible.

They all look like they are primed for what they are doing, especially the women, who are pretty as peaches in the morning but must be on tons of caffeine.

But whatever the case, they do what they have to do ...

And I have to do what I have to do, so let me run. I will speak to you tomorrow, same bat time, same bat channel ... .
