famous fridays

"It's Friday!" The cry of joy all across the world. Some look back, sighing in relief after a long, hard week. Others look forward, smiling in anticipation of a good weekend. Friday. It's either the end of the week or the beginning of the weekend, but rarely do we take Friday as a day in and of itself. I'd like to pause for a moment and enjoy Friday for what it is. It's not Monday. It's not hump day. It's not those long work-days in between. It's 24 hours that I won't get to appreciate again until 7 more days have passed.

Thus, the creation of "famous Fridays" - a quick look at someone famous on a day that is famed for ending the week or beginning the weekend, but rarely for just being itself.  They only come once a week. Don't miss them.
