Tuesday Upper

Tuesdays are the worst.

You prep all Sunday for your Monday morning blues. You mentally visualise how miserable you’ll be at precisely 6.a.m. and pretty much for every hour after that till the level of caffeine in your blood has exceeded the level of misery in your being. You are so prepared for the shithole every Monday is. (The sole exception to this is the Monday Armaan arrived. Inspite of the fact that barbarous things were done to my person that day, that was a fantastic Monday. It was rock n’ roll, but that could be the morphine speaking.)

You lull yourself into believing that Tuesday will somehow be better. That you will feel better about the world, your workplace and life choices. You might have even seen a great show the night before that seduces you some.

Congratulations. The free T-shirt is yours.


With this inevitable truth in mind, I plan my playlist the night before, to ensure a decent chance of getting out of bed, into the car ( for some regular environmental damage) and to the office in the manner of all wannabe-productive, wage-earning (harhar! if you are a government employee) individuals.

So, today I present the Song That Gets Me Out Of Bed. And honestly? It works better than a double espresso.

Thanks to YouTube being whipped by the record labels, there is no real video anymore. YouTube can host my neighbour’s porn, just not cool music. I’ll learn to live.

Enjoy the song! Shine like Ruby Tuesday today.

    Dude, I’m obsessed with the 80’s. Love the song! And stop whining about Tuesday when you just had Monday off! I have zero sympathy for you, missy.

    @Era: And I love that:-)

    @Richa: Thanks 🙂 Good to not be alone in disliking a day of the week.

    @Meluhhan: Stick with me baby! This blog will feature loads more 80’s music. Maybe I should have a segment thingy.. Tuesday Pick Me Up 80’s song?? Yes?

    ROTFL. Ok. I am going to try this song next Tuesday 🙂

    The only bonafide way to get out the miery that is Tuesday is to dig into a really large pizza 🙂

      Dottie! Don’t kill my low-carb resolve now:-) *sigh* Who am I kidding? What resolve? bring on the pizza!

    Okay can I be the only one to say that I am not too crazy about the 80s? Heck, I know nuts about the 80s actually.

    But what gets me out of bed is a nice, hot cup of tea. Music will probably make me cranky.

    *sneaks up behind MGM and steals that double espresso while she is busy dancing to her 80s music*

      @Medha: Come to Mumma, poor, misguided child. We will cure you yet. Seek help at the church of MGM and disco heaven will be yours. This I swear.

    Omigod, omigod, that is totally my all-time favorite pick-me-up! Never fails to get the endorphins surging.
