Well, here we are again and its Friday. A lot of people refer it to Freaky Friday. Myself, like to think of it as TGIF, thank God its Friday! The reason being is that I try to get things done over the week and Friday I try to clear my plate so I have the weekend to unwind. Most of the time though, things seem to spill into Monday's to do list!
I found this little clip on Wikipedia that was interesting.
Starting in the United States, it has become a common expression of relief at the end of the work week and anticipation of relaxing or partying over the weekend. The term was originated by the Akron, Ohio disk jockey Jerry Healy on radio station WAKR in the early 1970s. The phrase was further popularised by the 1978 movie starring Donna Summer, Thank God It’s Friday. The phrase has also become common for advertising and promotional materials. On college campuses beginning in the 1970s, the phrase (sometimes shortened to "TG") became associated with Friday afternoon beer parties, usually held outdoors.
Well, at any rate, I'm glad its Friday!
