I’m trying to come up with a feature for each day, to help me get back on track with daily posting, but I can’t come up with a damn thing to go with, say, Wednesday Words of Wisdom or Tunesday or Memeday. I keep getting stuck on the Norse thing…you know, Wednesday derived from Odin’s Day and so forth. Thursday reminds me it was originally Thor’s Day, and Thor gave me my favorite moment in the hundreds of Marvel films we’ve seen over the past few years:
He is in a hurry and runs into a pet store to demand a horse. The clerk says something like, “We don’t have horses. We only sell dogs and cats and birds.” To which the God of Thunder responds, “Then give me one of those big enough to ride.” It’s even better than the Hulk’s “Puny God” crack at Loki.
So, let’s hear it for Thor. On his day.
And that gives me another week to think of something for Thursdays….
