Monday, Monday

I hate the phrase "a case of the Mondays." It irritates me. However, I totally understand how some Mondays just feel like they should be locked in a case. Forever. I know that's not what the phrase means, but that is the only acceptable way of thinking of it, as far as I am concerned. Ok, I don't even know what I'm talking about at this point. The Point is...sometimes Mondays just suck. So do Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and yes, even Saturdays. But sometimes, even if Sunday is lame as well, the sun is shining and you can pretend it's not. For a little bit.

And on Monday, you can decide to put your best foot forward and try to force the next week into something better.

Here are some interesting websites I have found, or that have been shown to me, in the last few days that I feel might just make your Monday start off right.

  1. Knitted Food. Thanks, Josh, for this inspiring (not really) look into the world of knitted food. The Japanese really have thought of everything. Not that I haven't seen this in the USA. These super-advanced-knitters are the same everywhere. A little bit crazy.
  2. High Tea in Vegas. I have recently decided (on more than one occasion) that I need to go to Vegas. I haven't been there since I went with my family when I was, like, 12 (or maybe 14, I don't really remember). I'm almost 23. I missed the obligatory "I turned 21 and I'm in Vegas, baby!' trip. Now, I don't really gamble and I don't really drink. "Why Vegas?" you ask. It just seems like fun. And who doesn't want to get away for a weekend of all-you-can-eat buffets and free drinks in the casino? Also, my cousin lives there, and I never see her. Also, I totally want to go to this high tea. Sounds totally worth the $35. Mostly. So, if anyone wants to take me to Vegas, or wants to wait till I have a job so I can afford to go, please let me know. I certainly won't go alone.
  3. Top Tips for Girls. Now, I haven't thoroughly checked this out yet, but it was recommended by Daily Candy, and seems like a good thing. If I find out it's awful, well, I'll probably write a blog post about it.
Enjoy! Make Monday Happy!

  1. I also looked up Top Tips for Girls, per Daily Candy. Some of the stuff was good, some trite. This was my favorite quote:
    "Never, ever call men if you can help it. If they can’t be bothered to call, they obviously don’t think you’re worth calling."
    The user comments are also funny, but not helpful.

    Hope this comment helps!
