Isn’t it always the case that the one day you really, *really* want to sleep in, you get awoken at some obscene hour of the morning? You know, when the strange and rarely seen Day Star is rising rather than setting? Such happened to me today. Mind you, in addition to it being Good Friday by the Christian calendar, its also Black Friday ie, Friday the 13th, the superstition of which I actually believe is derived from said holy day – there were, after all, 13 people at the last supper.
At any rate, since, with luck, you won’t be hearing from me again until Monday, have a good Easter everyone, stay safe on the roads and try not to eat too much chocolate!
