Hurrah and hooray, it's Friday today! All day as well until midnight and then it's into the weekend, woohoo!
Being unemployed these days I'm not sure why I get excited about weekends; after all, they're pretty much the same as any other day except that Casualty is on telly on Saturday and nowadays there's also Total Wipeout to look forward to*, but I still feel that weekends are 'special'.
Saturday is not a proper Saturday for me without an afternoon tea, and Sundays are just plain wrong unless a full roast dinner is involved at some point during the day. Twice if I'm very lucky.
This Saturday is going to be rather more fun than usual as I have a friend visiting me from 'Oop North' and he's asked me to show him around London so I have my comfy boots ready and the camera set to shiny in preparation.
I could have shown him around today, but it somehow feels not quite right and not as much fun as going out on a Saturday. Does that make sense to anyone else, or am I alone in my weirdness yet again? Does anybody else feel that weekends are still 'special' or has the 24/7, 'Open all Hours', 'Get It Now!' lifestyle we have nowadays taken the shine off what used to be 'Time Off' for many people?
Does anyone out there feel the same?

Anyhoos, as it's time for fun and frolics (In my opinion at any rate) I've decided to do a lazy post today and have a 'Tell us your favourite jokes' session, just for shits and giggles like.

*I do try to concentrate on the people falling into the mud and bouncing off the big balls without fantasizing about Richard Hammond, I really do.
But it is very difficult not to, what with the mud, water, big balls and so on.
*sigh* Maybe I need help...
