For some reason this has felt like the longest work week, and it's a short work week to boot since I had Monday off. Derek is still sick so our usual weeknight date night did not happen this week. Luckily Fiona asked me to have dinner with her at Harry's last night. I get a little stir crazy if I don't have somewhere to go during the week. I put some money in the jukebox and someone kept paying to bump my songs. They did play eventually but I was a bit annoyed. I guess someone really wanted to hear their songs if they paid extra to bump mine. Overall it was a fun night and I was glad to get out of the house.
Just for fun I looked up the term stir crazy. Here's where it came from according to wikipedia.
"Used among inmates in prison, it referred to a prisoner who became mentally unbalanced because of prolonged incarceration. The term "stir crazy" is based upon the slang stir (1851) to mean prison. It is now used to refer to anyone who becomes restless or anxious from feeling trapped and even somewhat claustrophobic in an environment, perceived to be more static and unengaging than can any longer continue to hold interest, meaning, and value to and for them."
Clearly going to Harry's was good for my mental health.
Happy Friday everyone. I'm excited to sleep in tomorrow.
