It's Thursday.  That's all I’ve got.  I don't have anything else floating around in my head.  Nothing at all.  Just the day.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do.  It's pretty pathetic to not have anything in your head other than the day of the week.  But at least I know what day it is.  That’s something.  Of course, I can just look at the calendar.  But I didn't.  I knew it.  I knew that today is Thursday.  How did I know?  Because yesterday was Wednesday.  Thursday always comes after Wednesday.  It has for my whole lifetime, anyway.  I have no reason to expect that Thursday won't come after Wednesday.  So I assume that today is Thursday.  Calendars and things seem to confirm that it is Thursday, so I'm pretty certain that today is Thursday.  If it's not I certainly do hope that someone will let me know.  I'm not sure how it will change things if today isn't Thursday but it seems like it will be a big deal.  I mean, this is a pattern that we've been following for a very long time so to break that pattern would be weird and significant.  There'd probably have to have been some kind of major world-wide coup or takeover.  Our new world ruler would have had to made his first action to change the naming of the days.  That's the only real reason I can think of why today wouldn't be Thursday.  The only other explanation I can think of is that we're all dead and there are no longer any real days anymore.  We're all just in some kind of Lost-esque limbo where we all need to do whatever we can to move on to the next stage of death.  Of course this limbo is way more boring and way less poignant than Lost's limbo.  No matter, it wouldn't really be Thursday.  It would seem like Thursday but it would actually not be Thursday.  Though, there's not really a difference between it actually being Thursday and it seeming like Thursday in a limbo world.  Thursday is a human construct.  It doesn’t exist outside our heads.  It's just what the day is called.  Someone could have called it Clumperman and I would be writing about Clumperman instead of Thursday.  Anyway, it's Thursday and that's all I've got.
