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!

Do try & keep up......

      • Came by to complain bitterly that you have not been posting.
        I obviously figure you post singularly for my amusement.
        Then I noticed you Have been posting. I just haven’t got my usual anticipated e-mail notices.
        Is it my email or did you turn the service off?
        If it’s you. I am officially an angry customer. Please turn my electric service back on. It’s dark in here.
        Other than that hi.

      • The service is (I hope) “on” as always; if I am not going to post anything I usually make a post to say there will be no posts (go figure) except at weekends which are officially “down time”,

        I am glad to see you have resumed posting & it is nice to hear from you.

        Best.
