make-it-better monday – with cows

August 2, 2010

Some folks just don’t like Mondays.  I don’t entirely understand it – I can’t imagine taking one whole day of the week and hating it, anymore than I can imagine hating mornings.  But there are people who don’t like mornings, either, so I might be an anomaly.

I’ve always wanted to be an anomaly.

For some time, I’ve wanted to do something to improve the situation, and I conceived of “make-it-better Monday” posts.  I have lots of different ideas, mostly still in my head or in draft-post form.  Today, the new MIBM post I had in mind took longer to write than I had for it.



One of my favourite The Far Side cartoons by Gary Larson:

Depending on the kind of Monday you’ve had, you might need more than this.

For your entertainment, amusement, and/or mood-enhancement, I offer cows & cows & cows.

    Awesome!! Although something about those cow-spiders really creeps me out, seriously, the hair on my arms sticks up during those parts.

    The spiders freaked me out, too – and I don’t mind real spiders, much.

    Oh and of course I to do my civic duty and share this amazingly educational video with my students during lab today.

    And another Monday—had to watch cows again—Hopefully no one saw me bobbing my head along with the cows.

    I’m glad to hear that I am contributing to learning opportunities. Makes me feel good about myself.

    I’ve been lax on the blogging front – glad this continues to amuse. ;-)

    Oh how I’ve missed Gary Larson! What a genius.

    True that, Martha. He is one of my all-time favourites, along with the creator of Calvin & Hobbes.

    Thank goodness for xkcd and Savage Chickens.
