Welcome to the Rhino House: new readers start here

Why ThursdayAgain?

Ford Prefect: How would you react if I told you that I’m not from Guildford after all, but from a small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse?
Arthur Dent: I don’t know. Why? Do you think it’s the sort of thing you’re likely to say?
Ford Prefect: Drink up. The world’s about to end.
Arthur Dent: This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Why Rhino House?

“The boys were all feeling rough
Dear God we’d all had enough……
And the dressing room was filthy & cold
With orange wallpaper, 40 years old.
It stank like a Rhino House.”

Who is the jester figure?

His name is Hugo, & no, I don’t know why he looks miserable.

What is a charivari & why is ThursdayAgain almost one?

charivari n.
1. a discordant mock serenade (often to newlyweds), made with instruments & mock-instruments such as pans, kettles, etc. Usually delivered in the form of a parade.
2. a confused noise; din
[from French, from Late Latin caribaria headache, from Greek karēbaria, from karē head + barus heavy].

As a blog, ThursdayAgain has the advantage of only being a very small din, is only mildly confused (or concussed, if you prefer) & can be enjoyed indoors – hence “almost”.

Should I take advice from the Agony Aunts or plan based on the ThursdayAgain horoscopes?

NO!

24 July – 23 August

MEN

May will see you lose someone very close to you, say the fates, following the successful operation which will leave you with an arm & a leg but your conjoined twin with the heart & both kidneys.

WOMEN

May’s difficulties will soon be replaced by June’s problems which in turn will give way to July’s disasters, say the fates.

WIT & WISDOM

Try to keep your mouth shut when you are out of your depth.

As recommended by God.

After a successful career as a master in the martial arts, Kenji thought he would find it hard to settle back into the dull routine of the family's fruit-&-veg business, but after a few false starts he soon managed to introduce his own particular style into his daily interaction with the customers.
