The best thing about weekends is not needing them. Because of Marie and the impending Rice spring break several of us went to some gallery openings Friday, and then a bar for some karaoke covers of songs no one knew. A good way to end the week, after a lot of thinking and some writing and some planning and well yeah everyone having plane tickets the next morning.
Except me, which is good for the novel and the pocketbook and bad for the whole “talk to people not using the computer” portion of my life. Which is fine, that’s what cell phones are for.
The realizations though that drive this are: going out with friends is fun, but better when not dependent on the day of week, because things are crowded on weekends. The grocery store on Saturday is a nightmare, just like the laundry machines on a Sunday, both of which I avoid whenever possible. I got a table at the Agora today by virtue of being early, but it was packed by four pm in a way Monday-Friday never is.
What I’m saying is that, should you not work 9-5 Mon-Fri you have a gift that few people ever have, revel in your time.
