Jedi Thoughts

Every day this week I have found myself thinking it's a day further on that it really is.

Yesterday I thought it was Thursday all day and when I woke up this morning I thought it was Friday.

It's not as if I haven't had anything to do on certain days either. Tuesday I had a medical appointment and yesterday I had to go and see a lady regarding my work. Today I have some training this afternoon and tomorrow I'm having my hair done. So why is it that all my days are mixed up but I still know what I am doing?

One reason I thought could account for this is, Monday night I met up with an old friend, well he's not old but I've known him for a few years. We went out for a drink and being the gentleman he is, he drove and I was able to drink. We had a really good time catching up on what had be going on in the last couple of years, since we had seen each other last and even made up a new religion, Jedi, but more about that later.

After the pub closed we called into a friend of mine whose birthday it was. A few more drinks with him and then home. I think I had about 6 or 7 vodka's, an amount which wouldn't usually effect me but there must be something strange about drinking on a Monday night as I felt very drunk.

Tuesday morning was a bit of a blur and although I had promised my friend we would go to the gym, I just couldn't face it so I sat in her house drinking coffee, trying to clear my head.

You would have thought I would have relived Tuesday again since I wasn't really with it all day, but no I think I must have taken it completely out of my week which is why I've been one day ahead.

Wouldn't it be good if all Tuesdays were gone and only had a 4 day working week, well we could leave in the ones that landed on the last day of the month cause thats when I get paid.

Monday's you would get out of bed feeling alot better knowing you only had 3 more day till the weekend and Wednesdays would be great because they would come a day earlier.

So, from now on, don't make any arrangements for Tuesdays, they will soon be a thing of the past.


I just did a search for Jedi and found there is already a religion called 'Jedi' and it's quite popular. here is what it says regarding the religion on Wikipedia:

England and Wales
In England and Wales 390,127 people (0.7 percent) stated their religion as Jedi on their 2001 Census forms, surpassing Sikhism, Judaism, and Buddhism, and making it the fourth largest reported religion in the country. The highest percentages of such responses were typically in cities with high student populations.[10] In the 2001 Census 2.6 percent of the population of Brighton claimed to be Jedi.

The percentages of religious affiliations were:
Christian: 72.0%
No religion: 14.8%
Chose not to respond: 7.7%
Muslim: 3.1%
Hindu: 1.1%
Jedi: 0.7%

You may be unaware that just before the 2001 census, there was an email campaign to get as many people as possible to put "Jedi" as their religion on the census.

They were under the impression that if it got such-and-such a %, it's in the law that it would become an official religion. This is not the case, according to the Office of National Statistics.

The whole thing was nearly derailed by a few people saying "Well, I don't think it should be Jedi, I think it should the Sacred Chao" or whatever, splitting the vote. I think they kind of missed the point...

I think there were some Jedi answers in the 91 census too. I was collecting the forms.
As for Tuesdays, good idea. Could you work on the rest of the working week?
