I am currently piecing together an argument for why, contrary to a calendar-maker's opinion, the week actually starts on Monday. My husband is a heathen and apparently skipped the whole chapter where it said "And God rested on the 7th day." Sunday. There are 7 days to a week and God rested on the last one, the Sabbath, which...according to everyone except the Jehovah's Witnesses (and I think the Jewish folk) is SUNDAY. I'm not even sure how the discussion started this morning since he is usually walking out the door just as my feet hit the floor. But somehow, there was extra time this morning to debate lunar years and Biblical facts. Anyway, he has decided to go all Beaker on me and argue the tilt of the sun, the rotation of earth, and why Sunday is the new Monday. So, I need a little more time to build my argument because this is one I'd hate to lose. (After all, every photo calendar I've ever given starts on a Monday. I will give you gifts, but they will abide by my personal lunar laws). I will bring it to the jury (yes, you) to decide when I'm ready.
Until then, please enjoy this uber-short sketch from Mad TV. This came out a couple of years ago...well before Apple's newest attempt to become masters of the universe. That Girl Blogs mentioned the ridiculousness of the iPad name last month, but Neal actually brought this particular skit to my attention over the weekend (ahem...weekEND, encompassing Saturday and Sunday...huh..). Apparently, Steve Jobs' hormonal imbalance has caused him to think so much about hormones that now he's naming products after other products, which are made necessary by hormones. Ahh...how I do love a nice slice of irony pie with my daily cup of joe*.
*I know I said I would be better about calling Neal out on here but I just have to mention...he asked me who Joe Biden was the other day. I mean, CNN plays in the background of his office for 7.5 straight hours, 5 days a week. His wife, the CNN junkie, covers the other 16.5. REALLY?? When I clued him in, he said "Oh, Joe's his first name?" I guess he missed the VP debates when Mrs. Palin leaned over and whispershouted "Can I just call you Joe?"
