It’s Wednesday, how to get ‘over the hump’!

20 01 2010

hump day (noun) a reference to making it though to the middle of the world week as getting “over the hump”;  or Wednesday. If the work week were a hill, then Wednesday would be the crest.

Wednesday (noun) is a day of the week in the Gregorian calendar. According to international standards, it is the third day of the week, the day between Tuesday and Thursday.  The name comes from the Middle English Wednes dei, which is from Old English Wōdnesdæg, meaning the day of the English god Woden.

This is all information that you are unlikely to be asked, ever,  but trivial information that is fun to know. And something to help you get to the weekend (or through the day at least).

Other things to do tonight at home, or plan them for a night with friends and family (and don’t have alcohol around so you’re not tempted):

  • Game Night – board games have come back with a vengeance. Pull out (and dust off) some old classics, like Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, or Pictionary. Or get a new twist on an old classic, have you seen the new Monopoly games with debit cards? It’s not child’s play anymore!
  • Video Games – if board games aren’t really your thing, have a ‘video game night.’ There are so many fun and interactive games out now, wiiFit, Singstar, Guitar Hero, RockBand. You could host your own X-Factor competition.
  • A SWAP party – (for the ladies!) invite your friends over and tell them to bring clothes, shoes and accessories they don’t want anymore to SWAP. The more you bring, the more you get. Fashion swap parties can be great fun and a brilliant way to refresh your closet.

Need a night out of the house? Make sure you catch Avatar at the theatres (I know we’ve mentioned this one already), but it swept at the Golden Globes award show on Sunday. If you’ve already seen it, check out another movie from the award show nominee list.

Let us know how you get over ‘Hump Day,’ or new found activities that you’ve been enjoying since you’ve Dropped The Drink …

Happy Hump Day!
