and he can see no reasons cos there are no reasons....

Mondays are rubbish. I shouldn't imagine that I need to elaborate too much on this, as my reasoning here is fairly obvious, but suffice it to say that next weekend is but a remote prospect on some far-distant horizon, and last weekend is already like a half-forgotten dream.

As we've already established that Sunday is not my funday, my I don't have to run day, I'm hoping that things look up on Tuesday, or else things are starting to look bleak indeed.

For the record, I don't much care for October either.

Proper winter: fine.
This sort of drizzly, blowy, gloomy half-season? You can keep it.

No I'm not feeling grouchy.

Why do you ask?

    I like October. It's not too cold and there's an English crispness to the air. You can wear several layers without ever being freezing. Plus you can swish through russet leaves and watch squirrels burying conkers.

    We had quite a bit of sunshine today though, and no drizzle, which makes a difference.

    Cheer up babe, it's only 3 whole days to Friday. You can make it.

    Mondays are okay, as they tend to be a day that I can actually think at work. But as being the day I actually have to be back at work, they suck.

    October is when both my parents' and my close friend's birthdays are, so it tends to be a bit of a good thing...and there is Halloween at the end. Ye gods! I have 4 birthdays this month - ACK!

    I think my favourite days are wednesday and thursday because they are when the weekend are in sight and I've got past the horridness of Monday and it's compadre Tuesday.

    Never been keen on Thursdays me, probably due to the fact I've always been a weekly wage slave & on Thursdays I'm usually flat broke.

    any days you do like? or is this week going to be a misanthropic journey through your seven day hell?

    All this reminds me of the chorus of a song:

    "...except for Monday which was never good anyway.
    Tuesdays I get a little sideways.
    Wednesdays I feel better, just for spite.
    Thursday and Friday take too long.
    Before I know it, Saturday's gone.
    But it's Sunday now and you can bet that I'm alright."

    Except, of course, that Sunday doesn't work for our Swiss one either. *G*

    I like October too, although I have reasons to be biased about the month as I wouldn't be here without it. Or something like that. I'm sure my mum explained all this to me once.

    Anyway October's nice - you can watch the leaves turn and the colours go all pretty. And still get blues skies sometimes.

    Say something nice about October or I'll restage the October Revolution on your doorstep to show you the error of your ways, Swiss.

    Sounds like a cue for the Easybeats.

    "Monday morning feels so bad,
    Ev'rybody seems to nag me
    Coming tuesday I feel better,
    Even my old man looks good,
    Wednesday just don't go,
    Thursday goes too slow,
    I've got Friday on my mind"

    Too true.

    I love this time of year. Walking along seafronts with hardly anyone about, bright/clear/no sunburn days outside. It's all good. Nature rocks.

    I have to agree with you, Octobers are crap. Living in the desert, we've endured seemingly endless days of summer heat. When you see October looming on the calendar you look forward to cool nights and changing leaves and a crispness in the air. Instead, the days are still over 100 degrees F. Ugh. You may ask, then, why I'm still living in the desert. I'm working on that...

    I lived in Arizona once and it was a bit like that. In 18 months of being there it rained... 4 times. I counted.
