This post is going to be quite lame, I’m afraid, but yet will probably not attain the carefree silliness of a true Friday Lame Post. I have gone all day not feeling as if it is Friday. I still feel that way.
Normally I have this feeling when I have to work on Saturday. This week I do not. I only get to sleep in till four tomorrow morning, but that is at least later than three (I can do that much math, at least).
Oh, but that brings up a pet peeve of mine. You do not have to say “4 a.m. in the morning” nor yet “tomorrow morning at 4 a.m.” It is either “Four in the morning” or “4 a.m.” You can say, “tomorrow morning at four” or “tomorrow at 4 a.m.” “a.m.” and “in the morning” mean THE EXACT SAME THING! The weather people on YNN (now known as Time Warner Cable News, but I find that awkward and not a little self-serving) say it all the time (I could say “every morning in the a.m.” but I’m not sure everyone would get the sarcasm).
This being Lame Post Friday, I ought to be able to come up with some half-baked philosophy either explaining why some people feel obligated to repeat themselves, why it bothers me so much, or perhaps some new and improved outlook I could adopt so it would bother me less. Hmmmm….. nothing is coming. I did say I was not feeling Friday, didn’t I?
No matter. I am over 200 words, and by my own self-imposed rules, that is enough for a post. I hope you will all tune in tomorrow when I hope to be feeling Saturday.
