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.

  1. The only drawback of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is that people look funny at you if you read it on the train. Perhaps it also had a little bit to do with the fact that I was laughing out loud…
