Thursday Evening

What is it about Thursday evenings? For years, TV networks have put their most popular shows on Thursday evenings. (Not that it matters to me, as I have become that guy who no longer watches TV... but I digress...) I'm starting to realize that if there is an activity I want to do, it is going to be scheduled for Thursday evening. Witness:
  • My Masters swim group swims Tuesday/Thursday.
  • The local Java Users Group, hosted by my employer, meets the 3rd Thursday of every month.
  • A local cycling group runs a cycling race the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month.
  • I got wind of a poker game, run by a fella at work. Apparently these games are held on... Thursday evenings.
  • I've been thinking about joining a bowling league. Guess which day is the most popular day for bowling leagues?
It's not like I want to have every single minute of every single day filled with social activities, but what's wrong with Monday evenings? Or Wednesdays? I guess what I'm saying is: Don't bother calling on the 3rd Thursday of a month. I'll be busy.
