    Forget Friday the 13th - today is the day for real bad luck

    [size=14pt]Forget Friday the 13th - today is the day for real bad luck[/size]
    This could be your unlucky day. Monday the 27th has, it seems, overtaken Friday the 13th as the date on which the more suspicious among us should avoid the likes of job interviews, weddings and driving tests. The date has been identified as the most ill-starred on the calendar, with more mishaps recorded than at any other. The trend emerged from a study of more than one million insurance claims.

    Wow. Interesting. I guess then, to be safe, it's the couch for me today. Darn, and here I was all set to do some major housework. Hehehehe.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Blame it on the Turkey, maybe Triptophan (sp) has more going on than just making you sleepy.

    I'm having a great day, maybe I'll fall down the elevator shaft and break my legs just so I can keep the folklore alive.

    I read this post this morning and thought, "hmm...interesting, but really just a bunch of hooey."

    Right now, I'm a believer.

    My laptop (and I hadn't realized how dependent I was on it) took a giant dump today, and my bum was puckered so tight I could've poohed a diamond.
    On top of that, I was so stressed about the laptop, that I ran out of my last class without a textbook that I need to write a paper for Wednesday. After returning to the class it was long gone.
    On the plus side, the bad luck apparently only lasted half the day, because I was able to get my laptop back by 6:00 this evening in perfect working order.

    On the other hand, it could just be instant Karma for me telling Singer that he should get a Mac to avoid computer problems, cos I had never had any with my Mac. I'll never gloat again!
    ;D
