Tralalalala! (Trololololo!)

I almost feel sorry for Monday, the way everyone dreads it so. A case of the... it sucks, an awful way to spend 1/7th of your life. I figure if I live to be 87 (which is my goal), then I will have spent 63 years resenting one day of the week (philosophically I reason that I never truly hated Monday until I was 24, mathematically 87 minus 24 = 63). Stick with me here: 63 years of one day a week makes 3,276 days I will have spent bitter. Added up, that's 468 weeks total, 117 comprehensive months, 9.75 years. If I accept the fact that Mondays suck, I will have spent over 9 years waiting for the day to be over.

If that is the case I might as well throw away another 9 years and die at 78, which is not going to happen because Zoey will only be 45 then and will clearly still need me, right?

Yeah. Verging on Carl Sagan/Lao Tzu here, I know.

So Monday, here we are. Upon discovering the following video I immediately felt that I had found my spirit animal in this sexy beast Russian yodel-model man. Something about his hair, the swagger of his head, his nostrils... the way he smiles through both the high notes and the low. I am so totally channeling this guy today and every Monday from here on out.
9.75 years going hahahahaha! and pointing my finger; I vow to walk through the hallways of wherever I work singing this song without waiting for anything to be over.

Happy Monday, people. Watch the video and just you try and tell me differently.
xo,
S

You're right! I'm going to try really hard to like today. Eff 9 years of wishing Monday was over!

where did you stumble upon this man?! that is awesome. and not just b/c of his hair and overbite. or the fact that i could jump into one of his nostrils at will. my husband maintains that tuesday is the worst day of the week. perhaps i'll cheer him up with this song tomorrow.

holy crap! a brand new day is dawning!

my favorite and my best said...

i love how he can't even lip synch well to his own song. if it IS his own song. for all we know some really fat, warty man was singing and they got this guy with awesome hair, smooth skin, good teeth and a crazy looking nose to be the milli vanilli front man.

The chortles at 1:56 are magic. But his hairpiece is kind of freaking me out.

OH MY GOD!!!! he looks like a serial killer, and yet I am laughing. Thanks for giving me a mental image to keep filed away for when my boss is yelling at me...

I'm disturbed on so many levels. I'm scared of people that smile while singing. However I will be sure to pass this video around at work tomorrow. I *think* I've just found the music for this year's Christmas program!

It looks like a bad clone / animatron / ventriloquist's dummy of Billy Crystal circa 1987. And the camera work is stellar!

I still get the Sunday night blues, but Now that you have done the math I vow not to wast 9 years wishing Monday away...

It looks like they borrowed his makeup from a geisha, and perhaps that is why his eyebrows are missing. Oh lo lo lo lo lo lo lo lo. Kinda catchy, though. Like the Czech version of Donny Osmond.
