Why You Shouldn't Have The Mondays

Monday, August 19, 2013


1. Because 10 years ago you most likely weren't settling into your Monday morning by reading a few blogs.

2. You also weren't checking Twitter, Instagram or Facebook...

So how on earth did people waste time on Monday mornings is what I'd like to know?

3. You could have been texting, but there's a good chance you didn't have texting on your plan yet so you were probably just playing Snake, instead.


4. At least you had Get Low to jam out to on the radio. Or Ignition. Or Crazy In Love.

5. And you could change into a comfy velour tracksuit when you got home...


6. With Uggs of course. 

7. Reality TV? You got it! How about that cute family show The Osbournes?
I remember when this first premiered I was so confused. I just couldn't grasp the concept of cameras simply following a family around acting as "themselves." 


And Kelly, AKA queen of fashion police, you may forget the early 2000's but we haven't. 

8. But because reality TV was just too weird for me I was more into The O.C. 


Mischa, where are ya girl?

9.  And the Bachelor was only in it's 3rd season (Andrew Firestone)... But it was probably the most dramatic season ever, never the less.

10. But most importantly, the biggest indicator that today is better than 2003 was the fact "My Space" was our main social media platform of that time.



Anyone else remember Tom?

That's all I've got, go take on your Monday.

  6. Snake was the bomb back in the day. But you're right, Mondays are so much better now! Life in general is just better.

  7. Myspace where you could customize your profile with cute images from around the web, I'm kind of glad I don't myspace anymore.

  9. I remember Tom and The OC. I watched that show religiously. Where is Mischa??? I think the Firestone Bachelor was one of the last times I watched that show! No, I take that back. I watched the Melissa Rycroft debacle one and I think that was the last one.

  14. I heard someone saying that they had to check their myspace the other day.. I stopped dead in my tracks and had a look of confusion on my face like I wasn't sure if I had pooted or sharted-- it was super weird and I would prefer it never happen again.

  20. Haha, Tom - remember him!!!! Such a good old blast from the past and such perfect timing as I just had my 10 year high school reunion from 2003! x

  21. I was so obsessed with The OC! I miss that show.. I still can't believe they killed Marissa off. It definitely went all downhill from there.

    Now you have me wondering where my Blue velour track "outfit" went.

  23. Ah, how I miss the early 2000's. Mostly because Nsync was a huge part of my existence. I miss the good ole' Tom Days...

  27. Hahahaah! Oh girl, you made my Monday! This is all so true! I don't know what people are complaining about! Maybe in 10 years we will look back and reminisce ridiculous things that now we think are the bomb.

  31. I'll definitely take a 2013 Monday over a 2003 Monday... except hmm, without the "case of Monday's" being such a big deal on blogs, FB, and Twitter, I wonder if Monday's seemed so bad back then... oh well, better to be enlightened ;)

  32. Fun story: My husband actually asked me out via myspace. Well, it was more like "so... should I change your relationship status on myspace?"

    Good Lord.

    But yes, everything you said, yes.
