Saturdays are the best.Worth getting up for.
Those cartoons aren’t going to watch themselves.
When I retired, I enjoyed waking up early just for the fun of not going to work. That only lasted for 3 days, now I sleep until 10:00.
So many things to do on Saturdays!
It’s not getting up early that I hate, it’s getting ready to leave the house early that’s a pain.
Moe or Omnius??
I love the fact that now I don’t have to get up. So all appointments are at 2PM
That’s not surprising.
You’d think he’d want to sleep in, since he gets up early during the week. Huh.
That is exactly how it works. My brother had to be dragged from bed on weekdays. On Saturday he was up at 6, watching the old Pink Panther toons (first run, in those days).
I had to be dragged from bed every day. Still do.
Oh dear, it’s Saturday, it’s 11:20 AM and I’ve just woken up.
Didn’t Calvin say,“Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.”?Argh! I can’t find the strip.
At first Hobbes couldn’t see (panel 2) why Calvin wanted to get up so early.
I don’t think he cares for soup.

In the first panel, Calvin looks alarmed.Here is a typical school day, which Calvin also finds to be alarming:Click here: Calvin and Hobbes (May 31, 1992)Here is a typical Saturday:Click here: Calvin and Hobbes (May 10, 1986)

I may not get up as early when I don’t have to go to work, but I won’t waste my daylight hours sleeping either. I’d be inclined to get up just around sunrise.
I remember when I used to think this.
Today’s STONE SOUP mentions Saturdays too.
I wouldn’t want to wake up and regret that I lost half day of my weekend!!
I am retired and still get up before dawn to get my day started. But I go to bed early, so it all evens out.
Reruns of Tarzan!
@Omnius: Thanks for the positive comment. We really appreciate it. Don’t work too hard, and always take time to enjoy life.
I’ve often done that… Woke up early thinking it was a school day. Imagine my happiness when I suddenly realised it was a weekend!
I like the way Calvin ‘flies’ out of bed in the last panel.
Once my mother let me sleep til 1PM, I still remember that ONE time! If she was up at 6:30AM, so was the rest of the house. I remember being amazed when I got married (before kids) that I could go to bed and get up when I wanted!
Me to, Working nights your entire adult life will do that to you. I think that going to bed at 7:00 am is better then getting up at 7:00 am
Hi hear ya’, Calvin.
See… i just don’t get that getting up on a SATURDAY!!!?
Only days I get to sleep in are Saturday and Sunday. The rest of the week, I help getting our son, and my wife off to work by 8. THEN I can try and go back to sleep..generally doesn’t work, so I’m up regardless.
