Yes, it's Thursday. It's hard to say exactly why I like Thursday best. It's like answering the question, "Why do you like chocolate?" "Because it tastes so good." And Thursdays feel so good.
It's not quite the weekend but it's the day before. The day of anticipation of free time. My days at school on Friday are easy days with service projects and study island computer program instead of regular classes. Thursdays require no planning so Thursday nights are relaxing.
And Thursday has always been a great night for TV. It's hard to top a night with the boys---that would be Magnum PI and Simon & Simon back in the 1980's. The 90's brought in Murder She Wrote, Diagnosis Murder, and Murder one. (Do you see a theme emerging?) And the the advent of CSI in 2000.
Tonight I'll enjoy some comfort TV: Bones, CSI & The Mentalist with some comfort food: Butternut squash soup and and sourdough bread. I wish every night were as satisfying as Thursday night.
