Friday, January 13, 2006


Today, here in New Jersey, it is Friday, the thirteenth (I bet it is where you are, too.) It is the first Friday, the thirteenth of 2006. There is only one other this year and it is October.

Today is extra special because there is also a full moon, the only such combination this year. It has been pea soup foggy all day and a big storm is coming for the night. Driving to work at 5:30 this morning was very surreal. The roads were empty. My headlights were bouncing in all kinds of weird directions and sounds were muffled and squelched.

I have no fear of Friday the 13th (the day, not the movie - I don't watch scary movies, I have very vivid, action packed, full color dreams, I don't need to add fuel to the fire.) I pride myself on being different than the rest of the mundane world. I always do the opposite of what everyone else is doing. Phtst! (I just raspberried myself.)

This day has always been good to me. Once when I was a teenager, I filled out 13 forms for a contest on Friday the 13th and won $50 in toys.

Today, my husband got a suprise bonus from work and since he gives me all of his money, that means I got a bonus. So, I'd like to thank the universe for giving us a little something special today. Thank you Universe.


  1. The mother of one of my exes used to see everything as a good omen. When she heard a raven call, she would smile and say, ahh, good news is coming.

    Nothing was ominous in her world. You seem a little like her in how you view Friday 13th. My mother hardly leaves the house.

  2. I like playing with superstitions. They remind me of traditions. They make boring everyday days, fun.
