What Is The Cure For Mondayitus?

WHAT IS THE CURE FOR MONDAYITUS?

Is it possible that there is such a condition as Mondayitus, which relates to symptons of extreme tiredness, cold like sniffles, headaches and a general feeling of slowness?

If indeed Mondayitus does exist, than this is the first Monday for a long time that I have felt this way.

I am literally having to drag myself to doing anything.

I am moments away from activating my business website, that I have been designing over the last few months and later on today I have to confirm some performance bookings for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week. You've guessed it, I'm off travelling again. This time a wee bit closer to home.
Leeds, Beverley and Hull.

Before I try the cold teabags trick for tired eyes, have you any suggestions as to the cure for Mondayitus?

Sorry to be a pedant but shouldn't it be "Mondayitis"? :ninja:

Hello Pj,

Good to hear from you. Have you recovered from your holidays?

Not to worry about any pedantic meanderings PJ.

You may be right, you may be wrong. I'm not worried about it.

I'm now cured of 'Mondayitus', and will no doubt have in a few hours time, 'Tuesdayitus'.

Go on then, I'll engage in this little bit of small talk.

The main function of quotation marks or inverted commas, is to set off spoken words from the rest of the text. Furthermore, they can also be used to enclose a direct quotation or direct speech.

Here comes the crunch, modern practice from educationalists prefers single quotes (' ') to double (" "), but there are no absolute rules.

For example, you would not see or should not see speech marks within the spoken dialogue of a play between players parts. It is editorial practice to miss them out.

However, if sense implys that it would be advantageous to use quotation marks within text, within the chapters of a novel, than its very virtue should add to meaning emphasis and style.

A few examples;-

He said abruptly, 'I want that report to be ready by ten o'clock tomorrow morning.'

He asked , 'What are you doing here?'

What do you mean by 'I don't like it'?

He read keats' poem 'Ode to a Nightingale'.

'A bunch of misfits' was his description of his colleagues.

Qu'ils mangent de la brioche ('let them eat cake') is a saying attributed to Queen Marie Antoinette.

She asked, 'Have you any idea what the expression "begging the question" really means?'

Did the above strike a chord for grammar or a question of taste?
Are we bothered?

Roll on 'Tuesdayitus'.

Hello Isis,

If 'lash' here means excessive alcohol drinking, I reckon, I've become temporary teetotal. If 'lash' means being overactive sexually, which is what it means here in the North East, Mr M reckons, I've become a 'born again virgin'.
:wink2:

The 'Mondayitus' I have been referring to seems to be an allergic reaction to pollen. I am not normally prone to hayfever but with all the travelling, singing, and work I have done this summer, coupled with the sneezers. I do feel somewhat under the weather and tired.

Hope everything went well with your recent op. I am sure that whatever ails me fades into insignificance against your medical and surgical experiences.
