German Idiom for Friday

die Zeit totschlagen: to kill time

zB: Mein Zug faehrt erst in zwei Stunden ab. Um die Zeit totzuschlagen, lese ich mein Buch.

auf Englisch: My train doesn't leave for another two hours. In order to kill time, I'll read my book.

(from the Guide to German Idioms, by JP Lupson)
