Where does Mondaze come from?

The Quote Geeks

Mondaze combines Monday and daze, characterizing that feeling of being tired and unmotivated on Monday as one faces a new work or school week after the weekend.

The blend is found as early as 1993, when one, Michael B Blatz, perfectly summed up Mondaze in his little ditty on a Usenet forum:

Mondays suck…
Mondays suck…
Mondays suck…
Mondays suck so much 
that they really
really
really
really
really
really
really
bite the big one…

Yeah!

Mondays suck, indeed.

On the contemporary internet, Mondaze is sometimes intentionally misspelled à la the cute and ironic errors of LOLcat memes.

Even in memes, Mondaze is the perfect descriptor for that tired, out-of-it feeling you might have at the start of the work week, especially before your first cup of coffee.

Who uses Mondaze?

Sometimes, Mondaze is used as a deliberate, offbeat misspelling of Mondays for ironic or humorous effect. Other times, Mondaze is used to describe just how rough someone is feeling on Monday at work.

Ball Memes

That post-weekend haze, for some folks, is induced by smoking marijuana on, you guessed it, Monday. And so, Mondaze can also refer to getting high (and feeling dazed) on a Mondays.

When we’re really out of it, we might say we have come down with a case of the Mondaze.
