Bloviating Zeppelin: The Week or the Weekend?

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The Week or the Weekend?


What is more important to you: the week or the weekend?

I can remember from years ago, someone telling me this:

"When I'd finally reached St. Peters' gate, I wouldn't say:

Gosh, I wish I'd worked harder at my job.


_____________


Do you live for the Week?

Or do you live for the Weekend?

Quite frankly, I live for my weekend now, and I'll explain why.

I live in Fornicalia, the most oppressive of states on many levels. It is a beautiful state which became despoiled by immigrants naturalized and otherwise. It is a state rampant with insufficient roads, insufficient funds, insufficient power production, insufficient water production, insufficient sewer projects, insufficient fire and police protection, and an overabundance of suckers from the Public Nipple -- legal and illegal.

And into its coffers my bi-weekly paycheck gets circumscised.

And what about you?

Do you live for the Week?

Do you live for the Weekend?

I live for the weekend.

My job rounds me but it does not "complete me." I am not it and it is not me. My job requires my living down in the valley. On Thursday night I escape the flatlanders and rush into the hinterlands beyond. Sometimes I feel completely oppressed and compressed and nothing but leaving the valley will satisfy my shiverings.

What do you live for?

And why?
