You are not alone. I can't seem to get the hang of Thursdays either.

"You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxication in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young."

"Why, what did she tell you?"

"I don't know, I didn't listen."

Ha ha. Typos for the win. Seems that the source text file that I cut the above quote out of is full of a large number of errors. I'm not sure why there are so many in that text file. Either it is the result of a poor OCR, someone's terrible transcribing skills, or it's a plot to deter people from spreading digital versions of the book.

I do have a proper text file somewhere, but instead I've been referring to a copy AlericB posted at Pownce.

To quote Marvin: "It's rubbish."

Jace of Fuse! - My favorite section to quote right now is Ford's theory that if humans stop exercising their lips, their brains start working. There are several people at my place of employment who could seriously stand to stop exercising their lips because they're clearly just talking for the sake of talking. "OH. YOU'RE EATING A BAGEL, RACHEL." Yup. Eating a bagel. Thanks for the running commentary. (I've been ranting to my mother about this lately, saying that we should tell these coworkers, "If you don't have anything TO SAY, don't say anything at all.") Oh wow, sore spot. I'm done now. Yay! Thursday's done, too!

Confession time: I've seen the latest movie (and loved it), but I still have not read Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, even though I have the entire 4 or 5 book series on my computer as e-books.

Maybe I'm just waiting for that lovely Sony e-Book reader to drop in price....

Tez - Oh my gosh, you need to read the book(s). I got a pretty nice copy of The Ultimate Guide to the Galaxy (five volumes) at Barnes & Noble for $15 or so. Seriously. DO IT. You won't be disappointed.

Don't get me started or I could be here all day...

Team Christmas - I would love to hear some of your favorite quotes. I haven't finished reading, of course, so I would ask that you don't spoil anything. But please, share!

As a self-proclaimed Thursday's Child, I'll go ahead and spill the beans: Thursdays are just mean. They are out to throw everyone off. It's really not your fault, so don't feel too bad.

Dude, yes.
Case in point:

Thursday, January 24th: My pregnant sister-in-law has massive aches and pains in her stomach, and vomits nonstop all day and night. Friday she finds out she has appendicitis. I drive three hours to where they live to help out.

Thursday, January 31st: Still at my brother and sister-in-law's house (I'm going home the next day), and the house is burglarized. During the night. While we are IN THE HOUSE. Thief steals their laptop which was on the floor less than two feet away from my head.

Yeah. Thursdays suck.
