Guest post #4 by Kurt of Other People Exist

I never understood why blog readership drops on Fridays. If, as is generally supposed, visiting blogs = a slow day at work, then there should be an uptick in site traffic on Fridays, when employees are traditionally screwing around, often with the boss's blessing, if he/she is there at all. If I remember correctly, on Fridays there is sometimes even some tomfoolery and light drinking. At least there was at my elementary school.

For those who, like me, don't work, Fridays should be no different than any other day, blog-wise. After morning coffee, we wash our cup and saucer, stare emptily into space for a while, then lose ourselves in the meaninglessness of the Internet, filling the empty hours until our eventual death. Am I right, people? Without the Internet, I'd have to increase my staring-emptily-into-space time dramatically.

So where is everyone on Friday? If you are not reading this, then you know the answer.

I'm here! Maybe everyone is just too tired on Fridays. I know that's the day of the week that I am the most tired.

I'm here too Kurt...saying my usual...where the heck is everybody? Then I remember...oh, yeh... it's Friday..Friday is always kinda slow...I still haven't figured it out either...but, I think they are getting ready for the weekend.
Maybe some of them/us who don't work still have to change our non-schedules to accommodate the working class on a Friday... or kids come home early and Moms get dragged from computers..etc... sigh... yep... a slow Friday.

Guess you'll have to take up knitting for Fridays....

there's hockey on today at the Olympics.... if you're a fan.....

I get a shitload of work done on Fridays because all the salespersons are already in weekend mode. They come in for the morning meeting and then they're gone. It's my catch-up day.

On Friday I took a 5 1/2 mile walk, cleaned my home office, waited for my grandson to show up and my other grandson was dropped off earlier in the day. Then for dinner we brought in fast food cause I didn't cook. My granddaughter came over from 3 until about 7 in the evening. I was busy with kids, exercising, cleaning and that's how my day was.

But some days, I wash my coffee cup, stair at the walls and then surf the internet almost all day, save for a long walk or hike.

and I love retirement, yup I do!!
