Yes – some of us enjoy a Friday night in – it’s not boredom, it’s bliss to some.
If you prefer Friday nights far from the madding crowd – you are not alone – in fact there’s a song about spending Friday nights on social media rather than socialising in the pubs or clubs or at parties.
I love quiet Friday nights – especially after a big week:
– Time to think random thoughts we are too busy to think during the work to think
– Time to search for answers to random questions we think up. Time to find all sorts of interesting stuff on youtube!
For example, I searched “Friday night” and “Facebooking” and found lyrics – a parody to TGIF – Last Friday Night. Then I found the song on Youtube.
Here are two snippets.
Laptop chargers in my bed
Notifications in my head
Sunlight all up in my room
Better tweet before I’m doomed
I smell like cats and clothes
I can’t wait to check my notes
Nothing better one can do
Reblog me, I’ll reblog you
2. Skyping everyone I know
Facebooking stalking friends of friends who I think are hot
Tweeting things that no one cares
Tumblr cat gifs everywhere
Here’s a link to the full lyrics:
When I was younger I’d love to be out on the town. Now – I look forward to the freedom of a quiet Friday night and crashing out early.
People are different – it’s OK if you’d rather be reading a book or on Facebook rather than getting off your face!
My daughter likes to check out the stats – the numbers, maps and flags of different countries of “our” blogs. She keeps pestering me for updates. (Warning; future nerd alert!)
Hey look dad – we’re big in Bulgaria!
If you’re a Friday night Facebooker – you’ll probably get a chuckle out of the parody – here’s the link:
