No Sweat, It's Hump Day

We've made it to Wednesday, and so far-so good on my daily posting for November for NaBloPoMo.

I was reading about Wednesday on Wikipedia, and found the following:
An English language idiom for Wednesday is "hump day" a reference to making it through to the middle of the work week as getting "over the hump" (as most everyone knows already). It is also informally referred to as "the peak of the week". Another popular tradition in the United States is to wear a sweater vest on this mid-week business day. This has led Wednesday to be referred to as Vestday.

Woah.. wait a second: A "sweater vest"?!? Did I miss the memo on this one? I haven't seen anyone in a sweater vest since maybe Dr. Cliff Huxtable in the Cosby Show? Even then I never liked sweater vests... Just something about them. Still, I have never heard this thing about "Vestday"... I've only heard of "Hump Day". So in honor of hump day, I'll give you a couple fun things to enjoy.

This one's for the Blondes:

"The Wal-Mart Cat~

A blonde was weed-eating her yard and
accidentally cut off the tail of her cat
which was hiding in the grass.
She rushed her cat, along with the tail over


WALMART is the largest retailer in the world!!!
DUH! "

Next up, I give you a supposed "Brain Test" that I was sent this morning...

Man In The Beans
Find The Man In The Coffee Beans (brain test)

The original e-mail I was sent states:

"Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the coffee beans in 3 seconds, your right half of your brain is better developed than most people. If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1 minute, your right half of the brain is developed normally. If you find the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein. If you have not found the man after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more of this type of exercise to make that part of the brain stronger!!!

But This Website states that there is no real proof of this being any reliable test for brain development. Still, it was kind of fun... and yes, there really is a man in there. I don't think it took me but about a minute... but it did make me want coffee.

So there you go... Have a great Hump Day everybody!

I've always thought it was odd that they called Wednesday "hump day" since most people get laid on the weekends.

I don't do sweater vests. LOL

And I can't find anything in those coffee beans. Maybe the right side of my brain shut down?

Happy hump day to you too!

Suzanne said...

Can't it be a cool looking, retro paris pattern silk vest? No? Well, I suppose that's good, because that thing is too big.

Now I'm thinking that making a pot of coffee is good. Especially, since we've got my favorite on hand!

Ahahah!!! Jay! Good logic there... although, when I was 'footloose and fancy free' (a.k.a. Unmarried, I never found it very difficult to hook up on a Wednesday, but then I'm the devil. Who's going to refuse the devil?) hehe.

Zig! Yay!! You got it.

Joel! Thanks! Yes I looked for an outline at first, but after some seconds, It appeared to me out of nowhere.

Indoors! Yay!! I could've told you that you were normal. :)

Suzanne! I love coffee, more and more. I guess you could make a sweater vest sexy, especially a woman probably could, we have the equipment to do so. ;)

Cynnie! I knew those menz could not hide from the likes of you!!! :) And you're the coolest nerd I know then!
