Every Day I Have To Cry

The hypothesis: crying daily will release the junk that's tearing at my soul. Reasoning: Why not?

Thoreau's Weekend

Who invented this 'work five days, get 2 off' thing? It's really not conducive to life enjoyment.
I suppose that when it started to be 'work' instead of 'life', existence became less pleasant.

I really hate Sundays, because I keep thinking of Monday. All day. And it ruins the fun. Sunday is also a loaded day because it's church day...or it used to be for a lot of us. And the big one supposedly rested on Sunday in the myth.

I guess the idea of unions is to band together and not take anyone's bullshit anymore. What a powerful force all the workers would be...if solidarity could really be achieved. We could all just do whatever we felt like, and I do believe things would run fairly smoothly. Of course, there would be no CEO-to-lowly worker ratio scandal...

Socialist? Sure, I am.
H.D. Thoreau didn't have a weekend. He pretty much did what he pleased and worked when necessary.
He did die relatively young, though.

well first, there can never be consensus when people band together for natural reasons; and second - you can in fact determine what you want to do and when but only a few people have the character/opportunity to reach the positions that would give them this kind of power.....
