It's been Monday all week.

1. 請問"It's been Monday all week."這句話的含意是什麼?

是"每天都像星期一一樣忙"嗎?

2.跟"星期"有關的表達用法除了"Blue Monday","T.G.I.F.", "Black Friday"

之外,還有哪些呢? 請儘量列舉出來,謝謝!

Update:

好奇怪喲,各位大大,

竟然沒有人要作答,大家只在意見欄上發表,

首先,我要感謝DaSaGwa對"It's been Monday all week."做了很好的詮釋,

所以我現在了解了這句的意思,

而Fantastic大師寫了一句:

"After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says W T F"

那我就繼續發問了:

這句話的意思是不是"雖然過了禮拜一和禮拜二,但是還有週三,週四,週五..."

言下之意是不是"本週的日子很難熬呢?"

Update 2:

也感謝"no nickname"大大提供"Ruby Tuesday"這首老歌讓我知道,

我可真是沒聽過,所以有時間我會去抓下來聽一聽,

如果各位要把這題當成聊天室,那就Let's chat!

    Good point, DaSaGwa.

    Monday usually is hard to get back to work after 2 days of weekend. Therefore, "it's has been Monday all week" means "for the whole week, it is difficult to get back to work". It is kind of "losing the drive to work", "feeling lazy to work".
