Splash du Jour: Thursday

Avoid stock expressions (like the plague, as William Safire used to say) and repetitions. Don't say that as a boy your grandmother used to read to you, unless at that stage of her life she really was a boy, in which case you have probably thrown away a better intro. If something is worth hearing or listening to, it's very probably worth reading. So, this above all: Find your own voice.
-- Christopher Hitchens, Mortality --

Have a great Thursday!

I am really wishing for Friday too but today is actually Thursday :)

Holy cow!
Thank you Stefanie, seriously -- what was I thinking? That's too funny... I changed it to the right day now. I guess I was just projecting subconscious desires.
