Why are Mondays so tiring?

Well, here it is, yet another Monday morning. As I was taking my eldest to pre-K this morning, he looked up at me, and asked a question, "What are Mondays?"

I had no clue exactly what he was asking for, so I prodded for more information. "What do you mean?"

He glanced out the window, and continued talking. "Well, Fridays are toy day, and Saturday is the day that we stay home and watch cartoons, and Sunday is church day. So, what are Mondays?"

How exactly does one answer a question like that? Deciding that there really is only 1 way, I then answered, "Well, Mondays are the day that I go back to work, and you go back to school."

He frowned for a moment. "Oh. I don't like Mondays that much then."

His pre-K brain then went about finding something else to talk about. Yet, my brain was stuck on that exchange. Part of it amused by it, while the other part was doing hosannas that he didn't reply, "Well, I think I've got a bad case of the Mondays."

Or maybe I've just watched Office Space one time too many.

Oh well, I'm sure these are happy things. But, regardless, there is good news and bad news on the SF on TV front. The good news is that there is a new SF television show which began last night. The Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles' premier episode aired last evening. Tonight, part 2 of it airs. I've watched neither as I'm DVR'ing them as I don't want that whole 24 hour separation between parts 1 and 2. Now for the bad news: it's on Fox.

Yes, the same Fox which happily destroyed 3 previous SF shows on its channels (i.e. Space: Above and Beyond, Dark Angel, and Firefly). Fox has an odd relationship with SF. The channel was built in SF's back, yet ever since then, nearly every SF show they have tried to air they've tortured until not even the most dedicated fans would know when it was coming on, or even if.

I just hope that Fox leaves it in one time slot long enough that people can actually remember when the show is coming on. I also hope that they remember that you actually have to air the episodes in order to get people to watch.

Of course, this is Fox, so I don't expect that much to be done.

Anyways, reviews are coming. I promise. Sadly, the list still contains:

  • Darth Bane: Rule of Two - novel
  • Hal Spacejock: Second Course - novel
  • Skygirls - anime
Oh well. If anyone did watch The Conner Chronicles last night, I wouldn't mind hearing some non-spoilery thoughts on it.
