I hate Mondays  

Posted by CK in

Sigh. I have nothing against Mondays per se. (When I lived in Saudi, the first day of the week was Saturday and at that point, I hated Saturdays.) So, let me rephrase. I hate WORKING Mondays. Especially after you barely get a weekend.

In fact, I hate the first day of every week. That's it. That's my post.

Oh and one interesting thing I found while getting these pictures:


Day

Sunday
First day of the week.
