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
bite the big one…


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.
