Themed days of the week (Caturday, Wordless Wednesday, etc.) seem to work well for other blogs, so I’ve decided to adopt that strategy to add some much-needed structure to this blog. From now on, I’ll be posting according to this schedule:
Maggot Mondays: Some of my most popular posts have been about insects, so as a special treat, Monday posts will be chock-full of high-resolution photos of everyone’s favorite fly larvae. Read Maggot Monday posts over breakfast for the perfect start to your week.
Terrible Tuesdays: Tuesday posts will be just awful — meandering, pointless diatribes full of spelling and grammar errors. Just thinking about them makes me cringe. But if you can force yourself to read through them, they’ll make the rest of the week — and, really, the rest of your life — seem so much better in comparison.
Washing-Machine Wednesdays: Each Wednesday, I’ll post a detailed account of every load of laundry I’ve done in the past week and an inventory of the dirty clothes I still need to wash. Wednesdays will also feature lint trap art and, of course, the weekly mismatched sock round-up.
Thunder Thursdays: Okay, I admit it — I stole the name Thunder Thursday from Kitten Thunder, which features a different guest cat every week. My Thunder Thursday posts will be similar, but with a twist — instead of just focusing on a guest cat by itself, I’ll explain in detail why my own cats are better. For the ultimate personalized blog-reading experience, send me a picture of your cat, and I’ll devote a Thursday post to pointing out its flaws.
Forgetful Fridays: Each Friday, I’ll post a few questions about some minor detail about your life; for example, I might ask who your first-grade teacher was, what street you lived on as a child, your first pet’s name, your social security number, the name of your bank, or your credit card number. Join in and show off your awesome memory skills!
Sugar Plum Saturdays: Remember Sugar Plum Awareness Month? Every Saturday, I’ll tell you how many days are left until December 1.
Self-Referential Sundays: Sundays on this blog are all about writing about this blog; for example, I might describe my blogging schedule or announce the grand opening of the Unlikely Explanations Store.

I’m the kind of person who likes a schedule and routine. However, I’m not so sure I’ll be tuning in for Maggot Mondays. Maggots are more of a once in a lifetime, never to be repeated thing.
I can understand that, but really, it’s just once a week — don’t be afraid to splurge.
Just the perfect schedule!
I’m sure it will be a big improvement.
But … but … I want to know how many days are left until Sugar Plum Awareness month NOW.
Only six more days until I tell you how many days until Sugar Plum Awareness Month!
I think I will just visit your blog on Friday… if I remember.
Just leave your phone number and we’ll send you a series of automated reminder calls.
I’m so excited about your store! I will spend so much money there – as soon as I remember where I put my credit card. So maybe by Friday?
I decided not to bother with a fancy ordering system, so when you find your credit card, just leave all your info as a comment.
Excellent, will you really do this? As I will send you a picture of my cat
Sure! Send me a picture and any background information you think I should have.
Let me know if you’re ever looking for a ghostwriter for Tuesday posts.
Although I’m keeping my eyes closed until the maggots have all cleared out!
If you keep your eyes closed, you’ll never be sure where they are…
I hope Maggot Mondays will include some squished bugs.
Maggot Mondays have turned out to be somewhat less popular than I expected.
I wish I had a cat now so I could send you a picture of it and get your feedback on all of its flaws… What good will Thunder Thursdays be if I can’t even be the subject of ridicule?
Do you have a dog? Or a goldfish? I’m an equal opportunity ridiculer.
Neither. I draw the line at sending you a photo of my husband. It’s not gonna happen. :)
Hey, I’m already celebrating Terrible Tuesdays – what a coincidence!
I thought for SURE Thunder Thursdays would be something about my thighs. It’s probably for the best your way.
You’re so vain — you probably think this post is about you, don’t you? Don’t you?
No, I think it’s about Warren Beatty or Mick Jagger.
Wow, it seems so organized, I wish I would be able to develop a sceme for my life, which is just half as brilliant as your posting sceme. :)
Start small. Terrible Tuesdays work just as well in real life.
Well, this is a lot of organization, perhaps you could have a day of chaos for us lost schlobs who barely remember how to turn on the computer. (I loved your comment about what a relief it was to not have to drive to the airport to be strip searched anymore at 54.5)
Thanks! You don’t need to remember how to turn on the computer if you simply never turn it off…
Do you really want a photo of my cat? He has an enormous rogue fang that projects out of his lower jaw and his anus appears to be slightly prolapsed. He simply refuses to clean it so I can see all the different places where he’s been sitting while I’m at work, he also has extremely long nipples for a male cat. I don’t think I could bear it if you discovered even more flaws…..
Ummm… actually, I think you’ve got him covered.
I often do Terrible Tuesdays on all days of the week!
Even the plush maggot freaks me out.
I found it by doing a Google image search for “maggot”. You probably don’t want to do that.
I like the idea of themed days a lot, but I’ve already got Forgetful Friday down!
Lol I started reading this thinking wow this girl is really going to post everyday? Talk about dedication! And then I realized the humor and proceeded to smack myself squarely in the forehead!
I was going to try to keep it going for a few days, but then I realized the first one I’d have to do would be Maggot Monday.
Maybe I’ll just visit for the Sugar Plum Saturdays. They’re not as good as wine gums of course, but it seems like the best of your offerings.
