A Case of the Sundays

Many of you will know this gem from the seminal film Office Space where the main character, Peter, asks his construction worker neighbor, Lawrence, about The Mondays:

Basically, I get the Mondays on Sundays. I get cranky and irritable as it starts to sink in that Monday is coming. I start to dread getting back into the less flexible routine of our weekly existence of work and school. Of course, this has a tendency to spoil my last day off which in turn pisses me off too. And this Monday is the first one back after three weeks off, so it has a little extra resistance behind it. This doesn’t always happen, and has actually gotten better over the last few years, but I’m hoping that by writing about it now on Saturday, I’m releasing it so I can rise above it and enjoy tomorrow.

Anyone else out there get the Sundays? Remedies?

    No remedies. Crank the tunes on the way in, savor the memories of the last three weeks (!), and make something cool. That’s about all I can advise, my friend.

      Thanks Kevin. Day two done and things are good. Listened to some great jazz today (Dave Douglas, Christian McBride, SF Jazz Collective (2010)) which got things rolling nicely.
