Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.
At least they’ve finished resurfacing the 580 on/off ramp. Maybe I’ll fall asleep.
Okay, what’s with this “Happy Monday!” shit? Who started it and why? As Garfield has told us for the last 36 years, Mondays are the worst day of the week (with the exception of Tuesdays after Monday holidays if you have a job where you have to complete all of the work you would have done on Monday by noon).
Worse, in recent years we’ve also become subjected to “Happy Tuesday!” “Happy Wednesday!” and “Happy Thursday!” We already had “Happy Friday!” which at least made some sort of sense in that it was the END of the work week (for most). Was someone afraid the other days of the week were jealous of Friday’s status? Friday even has its own chain of restaurants and a whole bunch of movies. Tuesday has a song, restaurants and one movie. Monday has the catchiest earwig ever.
The best days of the week? No one ever says “Happy Saturday!” or “Happy Sunday!” They sit there taken for granted.
Fuck “Happy Monday!”
