wednesday~~ its hump day!!

A little history about Wednesday:

The mid-day of the week is named for the Norse God, Odin. He was also known as Woden or Wotan. Unlike many of the other days of the week, this day did not correspond roughly with the Roman designation for the day. (The Roman's named Wednesday for the messenger God - Mercury - In Romanian, the day is still known as miercuri). The early Scandanavians and Germans believed that Odin was the chief God of Asgard and as such deserved to have a day of the week named for him. The Anglo-Saxons used the word, Wodnesdaeg.

Wednesday is often reffered to as "hump day" because of its position as the middle day of the work week. If the work week were a hill. Then Wednesday would be the crest. It is all down hill from there. (Whether the down hill ride is a coast or a descent into a swamp is left to the individual.)

Only one holiday typically recurs yearly upon Wednesday. Ash Wednesday is the official begining of lent. It is called "Ash" Wednesday because since the 400's it has been the day upon which religious penitent's foreheads are marked with ash. It is a reminder of the mortal condition of the flesh - that we are all dust. This day is a variable date dependent on the date which easter falls.

I thought Wednesday was named after a group of people named nee! Hence "We da nees" - day. Oh, well, thanx for setting me str8.

Where was the first place you spent away from home? (meaning your home or hometown)

To be sure it was a NC ski resort. My dad loved to ski, and he had me skiing when I was just three years old!

Who did you go with?

My dad and mom.

How long were you away?

Probably three days.

Where have you wanted to go? Why?

Europe. Just to see something different.

WHATS STOPPING YOU??

A traffic court date. I'm planning on joining the Navy.

When you were a kid did you take any family trips? Where? (give details)

My grandmother and me would go to Disneyworld (the one in Florida) like, twice a year! She was an avid coupon clipper and every dime she saved with a coupon she'd put in a special savings bank, and we'd use that savings to go on our trips. I've been there more than 20 times!

Have you ever parted ways with someone that was traveling for a long period of time? (like summer or a year abroad) {give details}

Can't really say I have... I'm always the gypsy.

Where would you take your lover for a weekend getaway?? What would you do?

Def. a secluded beach. We'd camp out, have a nice bonfire, I'd cook, and we'd just spend a time away, just the two of us.

Thanx for the probe!
