    November 22, 2008

  • good question. maybe because he's basically malevolent?

    November 22, 2008

  • I think it's because Wednesday is the most interesting day, as a word. Tuesday is the second most interesting one, and so forth.

  • What's "so forth" in a sequence starting with Wednesday and continuing with Tuesday?

    April 25, 2009

  • I take fake umbrage at your hard line of questioning about my perfectly appropriate and self-explanatory usage of "so forth" in the Interesting Week Words Hierarchy, English version (IWWH Ev). Sheesh!

    April 25, 2009

  • Most, second, forth. What comes thirred?

    April 25, 2009

  • Ok, the count in terms of listings is:

    Monday 9

    Tuesday 8

    Wednesday 23

    Thursday 8

    Friday 9

    Saturday 7

    Sunday 7

  • That can't be right, 'by - today is 11, yesterday is 7, and tomorrow is 16. And so forth.

    April 25, 2009

  • No, no, no, no, no. That's wrong. Tuesday should have waaay more listings than Monday. Why, Sunday and Monday are totally at the bottom of the IWWH,Ev. It's a toss-up as to which one is less interesting.

    However, the today, yesterday and tomorrow IWWH,Ev is correct. Tomorrow is slightly more interesting than today and both are way more interesting than yesterday. The only question that remains is where do, the day before yesterday and the day after tomorrow fit in. Hmmm???

  • Don't forget whateverday.

    April 25, 2009

  • Mr dontcry wanted me not to forget Beerday -- with an honorable mention to "o'beer-thirty."

    I took a little fake umbrage to that. Then I forgave him and we took a spin with Toonces.
