A Consumer Complaint

Dear Universe,

I wish to report that the Monday I received from you today is defective. Could I please return it for a replacement (preferably a functional Tuesday)?

Thank you,


  1. Perhaps this will help:
    Acting solely on your recommendation, I rented the first disc of Blake's 7 from the video store last night.

    The way I see it, this officially means that your influence stretches to the other side of the world.
    That'd certainly improve my day, even if it is a bit late for Monday.

  2. Whoo! Awesome! It's been a while since I last converted anybody to the Way of Blake's 7. :) I'd been interested to hear what you think of it.

    One word of advice... If the first episode doesn't do it for ya, don't give up on it there, because, while it's important setup and gives you a really good feel for what the show's universe is like, it's very atypical in tone and is lacking most of the main characters. The second ep. ("Spacefall") gives a much better feel for what the show is like.

  3. I think that the universe may have started recycling days, as the day that I had yesterday (Tuesday) sounds suspiciously like your Monday.

  4. Damned corner-cutting universe.
