Friday

Postby nacho » Mon Jan 29, 2007 8:24 pm

Fridays of course are holidays, but I was wondering if it had a name. No one will take it seriously without one. Is it simply the Sabbath, or is there a specific name? This might be in the gospel (I haven't bought a copy yet).

The Gospel, p. 72

'And He said, "Wow. Even I might have overreached my Noodley Appendage on this one," and not even sure what day it was anymore, He decided to take an extended break from the whole creation gig, and He gave a quick blessing and declared, "From here on out, every Friday is a holiday."

So, to address your question, no, it's not a sabbath, unless you consider 'sabbath' in its secular equivalence to a holiday. It's pretty much just a holiday.

it's as much a holiday as Saturday is. more of a minimal vacation from work/school/whatever it is you do in your regular time.

Any statistical increase in the usage of the :idiot: emoticon since becoming Admin should not be considered significant, meaningful, or otherwise cause for worry.

On Fridays you take the day off and should eat something Noodly in tribute. So I guess it could be construed as some sort of Sabbath. But as you probably already know--flimsy moral standards--so you probably won't get stale beer in the afterlife if you don't remember to partake in the Noodly Communion.

I just noticed that the abbreviation for 'Flimsy Moral Standards' is an anagram for FSM.

A sign! Our Noodly Lord provides us with another sign!

Grog all around.

And if your boss hesitates, tell him/her you'll swap friday with saturday. Which, of course, leaves you with a split weekend... :(

I have converted the head of technology at the high school I work at. The admins are going to take a little more work though I think. :fsm_rock:

Legend. It's Friday, my gospel is at home and I'm sick of replying to an email from over a month ago suggesting a pub lunch. I came here looking for that very text as a different way to suggest it.

RAmen to you, brother.
