On Genesis and an online petition

The Book of Genesis says –

On the First Day, God said ‘Let there be light!’. And light was divided from darkness and ‘day’ and ‘night’ were born.

On the Second Day, God divided the waters above from the waters below and created Heaven.

The Third Day, God created the Earth and seperated the waters into the Sea. The Earth was filled with grass, plants and fruit-bearing trees.

On the Fourth Day, God created the Sun, the Moon and the stars to adorn the sky.

On the Fifth Day, He created the birds and sea creatures and commanded them to be fruitful and multiply.

On the Sixth Day, wild beasts, livestock and reptiles were created. God then created Man and Woman in his image and likeness, and they are told to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it.

The Seventh Day, having completed the heavens and the earth, God rested from his work and made the day holy.

The Eighth Day was a Monday. We do not know what God did to get rid of His blues. We do not know if God even got out of bed on Monday morning. Since everything is magnified a million times over when it comes to God, we think His blues were a million times more terrible. Probably explains why He did not create anything beyond Man and Woman.

Do the souls in Heaven or Hell have Monday blues? I would think the ones in Hell areΒ blue all days of the weekΒ and the ones in Heaven are too wasted to notice what day of the week it is, so the only unfortunate ones are us, the ones on Earth.

I’m thinking of starting an online petition to officially rename Monday as No-fun-day (yes, with the hiffins, thank you very much). How many of you will sign it? Tell.

On second thoughts, if I’m anyway thinking of doing the impossible, why not a petition for abolishing Monday? Now, how many will sign this one? Tell.

How many don’t know how to sign?

P.S: WordPress knows. ‘monday_blues’, apparently, is one of my most-used tags. It pops right up at the end of the post. Little mercies, eh?

  1. I get Wednesday blues, when you have used up all of the energy reserved from snoozing on the weekend and Saturday just seems so far away!

    Good post!


  2. I always thought the Flood was more of a Monday thing. You know, what with so many years of man equals a second for God and so on…

    Also, the fact that it has been raining since last 4-5 days here might have something to do with this.


  3. Believe it or not, the first thing on my mind when I woke up today was “Damn Monday”…the second thing was “Will she write a Monday blues post”

    …You are the bestest … πŸ™‚


  4. Manoj – Dude, focus! no one’s talking about our purpose on this earth as God intended! :-\

  7. Signed,


    Many IT companies have switched to working on Saturday and giving Monday off along the OMR, due to the power shutdown by TNEB. Wonder if they are suffering from Tuesday tensions?


  8. In Maryland… Luckily today is sunny. Hope the weekend is not rained out again.

    Err… if we abolish Monday, won’t we start having Tuesday blues?


  9. i have wednesday blues too, rather than monday blues… πŸ™‚ LOL at amey’s comment. thats right. we would start having tuesday blues if we abolish monday. πŸ˜€


  10. Sathej – 😦 This is probably the only part of school and college that I miss – the scheduled holidays!

    TopCat – I think the problem is because we have a 2 day weekend – it just makes Monday more horrible! Do the people in ME get a 2 day weekend?

    Clement – yeah, I heard about that too.. ofcourse it would – it’s not about the day Monday, it’s all about the fact that the day comes after 2 holidays!


  11. Amey – Yes, we will have Tuesday blues. And that’s when we’ll start a new petition to abolish Tuesdays! And it follows so on for Wed, Thurs, Fri… muahahahahaa! πŸ˜€

    PI – looks like we don’t need reasons to feel blue, PI! πŸ™‚ I feel blue right now ‘coz its 3:59 PM πŸ˜‰

    Anil – No, they won’t! We won’t let them. We’ll start petitions of all possible kinds..

    Btw when I read about the 3 year old’s t-shirt thing my first reaction was “World Telugu Federation”. Makes more sense than yours I hope πŸ˜›


  13. Im all for abolishing Monday , taking it a step further visionary that I’m , Tuesday will only become all the more difficult to bear what it being the first working after long weekend. So here is my suggestion , lets just have a one day week let that day be a Sunday. Alternatively I’m even agreeable to a week of 7 Sundays ,lolz.


  14. Amey – Ok, how about a 4 day weekend and a 3 day week? πŸ™‚

    PrashanthHelloo!! πŸ™‚ World Telugu Federation? seriously?! iyo!

  15. Vijay Ganesh – Oh but Friday blues are good, aren’t they? I can never sit in front of my laptop after lunch on a friday πŸ˜‰
