    Everybody knows what to do with weekends.

    The trouble is that they leave you exhausted, sunburned, sleep-deprived, malnourished, sexually drained, broke, hung-over, strained, sprained, abraded, degraded, bruised, embarrassed, and out of gas.

    It's inhuman to thrust such a wasted hulk directly into the madhouse of monday.

    Resolved: The week should begin with a day of quiet contemplation and healing. Rest. Stretching. Massage. Nourishment. Recovery. Maybe some rules are in order for Mondays.

    1. No alarm clocks. Wake when your body is ready to do so.
    2. Eat real food. No leftovers from any crap you may have indulged in over the weekend. And plenty of fluids.
    3. The phone shall not ring.
    4. There shall be no demanding emails from customers or management or regulators
    5. If you have one, you will not even see your supervisor.
    6. Thou shalt clear off thy desk. Quietly, and calmly.
    7. No bills will be due.
    8. There will be no deadlines.
    9. At some point, there will be massage.

    What do you mean? Obviously, what I described was a quiet weekend at home. I didn't mention anything about having piles of gear to clean, repair, and stow, as would be the case for an outing.

    Anyway, no rest so far this munday. When are east coast people going to learn how time zones work?

    this is exactly what some people would do with that. Also, this is what most people do with their sundays.
