Tomorrow, you get to be as rude as you like to your shrill alarm clock, because Saturday mornings are for lie-ins. Tomorrow, you get to forgo sensible clothes, and schlep around in those ratty trackpants you should really throw away, alternatively, finally have a reason to wear that dress that makes no real sense but was too pretty not to buy. Tomorrow, you get to forget the name of your boss, the password for your work computer, the 384 niggly little things on your To-Do List that never seem to get done. Tomorrow, you get to do whatever the hell you want to do, and then you get to do it all again, if you like, the day after. Because, dream weavers, tomorrow is Saturday, which comes after this beloved Friday. The weekend, therefore, has come so here are a few things to help you get into it.
1. This darkly thrilling music video- Rihanna’s Bitch Better Have My Money- to remind you that sometimes, you need to not give a f***. (Seriously, that’s it. That’s all you need to take away from this video- talking to you, annoying op-ed writers- except, oh, you can also take away this eternal fact: Rihanna is insanely good and worth every second of your time.)
2. This suggestion for your next bottle of wine- Marqués de Murrieta Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial.My friend brought some to Nigeria, kindly split his last bottle with me and it was outstanding. He says it should retail for about GBP40 (so not your every night sort of wine, unless you’re verra fancy) and I’ve got to tell you guys, it tastes like a black-tie party in your mouth.
3. This clip of David Beckham catching a stray ball, and all our yearning hearts, at Wimbledon.
4. Finally, this photo (also our featured photo) of Serena ‘The Goddess’ Williams giving Sharapova a kind pat on the arm “You’ll never beat me, dear one, but it’s ever so nice of you to keep trying.” to remind you all that victory is only made sweeter by encouraging your conquests in their adorably futile little efforts.
GO FORTH AND FROLIC.
