Pat Cadigan

To Pat Cadigan is to treat a specific working day of the week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc) as an opponent that needs to be engaged in a physical show of strength in order to wrestle it to the ground and proclaim one's victory over it.

The phrase alludes to the (excellent) writer Pat Cadigan who often treats specific working days of the week as opponents that need to be engaged in a physical show of strength in order to wrestle them to the ground...

Example usage: "I have a lot of work to do and my publishers are on my back, so today I'm going to Pat Cadigan until the work is finished..."
