Wednesday is no longer Hump Day

Hump Day is so yesterday. Puhleeez! With consideration to the fact that so many people are working part-time jobs or, like me, work in retail or some other profession that requires weekend work, Wednesday isn't really the day of getting over the 'hump' of the week. With perversion in their minds, many people think of the hump as getting it on. As queen of the celibates, I can assure that only gives me another reason to oust the mid-week moniker.

No, to me, Wednesday is GLEE-day. Fox broadcasts my new favorite show at 9:00 eastern/8:00 PM central time. As a former show choir member, it's everything I love and more! Teacher Will Schuester has the daunting task of bringing a lowly glee club back to the days of glory he once experienced when he was a member 'back in the day.' He declares that when he attended the school, "Glee ruled!" With the real threat of fine arts being back seated in our schools, it's scary that kids like I was will be stripped of the one thing that amps them up and gives them a positive view about going to school.

You wouldn't believe the number of people who tell me now that they wished they'd had the courage to audition for our show choir, The Celebration Singers. I wish I'd been more charismatic back in high school. Perhaps then I would have managed to charm the jocks into trying out. They would have been an asset when it came to lifts and stunts in our dance routines. Perhaps the wallflowers would have fully blossomed and found confidence they didn't know they had.

I wish you all a very happy GLEEful Day!! Go forth! Sing and dance like no one is watching. And who cares if they do see you? We all need to bust a move now and again.


  1. At work, I always sing like no-one's watching, usually something obscure (such as "They're Removing Grandpa's Grave To Build A Sewer" which is the sort of thing I usually start to sing when I've been there a long time and I'm getting tired)or just plain cool (like The Walker Brothers' "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" which not only shows my great age but my hipness).

  2. For you Rissy, Happy Glee Day :)
