Things I'm Gonna Do This Week- May 2012

So, just between you and me, last month's "Things I'm Gonna Do This Week" was not a big hit.  According to my statistics, about 67% fewer people cared about April's Early Morning Week than March's Creative Workout Week.  Now that I look back on it, however, I can't blame them.  While I still believe my idea to wake up early seven days in a row was both valiant and personally insightful, it was also in its very definition, sleepy.

Which is why I have spent all of May wondering what on earth I'm gonna do this week! I've spent many a twilight mulling over what idea might thrill my readers, but all I was able to come up with was "Read a Book in a Week Week," basically the blogging equivalent of watching paint dry.

So as today is the very last day I can start "Things I'm Gonna Do This Week," I've decided to combat my empty tank of creativity with a page from one of the most important chapters of my childhood, The New Mickey Mouse Club.

MMC, as it was called by those brave enough to think that Mickey Mouse wearing sunglasses could be "edgy," was a children's variety show on the Disney Channel that brought me a lot of joy on weekday afternoons.  Those kids sang; they danced; they told stupid jokes.  I loved it.

And one of the reasons I think I loved it so much was because of the show's impeccable organization.  For a control freak like me, I loved that I could tune in and already know what sort of show I was in for.  Monday was Music Day, Tuesday- Guest Day, Thursday- Party Day, Friday- Hall of Fame Day, and Wednesday was Anything Can Happen Day.  (Do you see where this is going?)

In honor of the Wednesday theme of my favorite childhood TV show, I am officially declaring this week, "Anything Can Happen Week."  Interested to know what that means?  Me too.  Tune in next week to find out!

"Y?  Because we like you.  M-O-U-S-E."
