Off Topic

Friday the 13th is a great day to just stay home and hide in a corner until the clock strikes midnight.

Superstitious nonsense.
Mr V has gone to London for the weekend (prob to meet up with Lilo). I have a bed all to myself. The absolute highlight of 2014 to date.

Mr Gator snored too much last night so he got placed in the guest room. So I got good sleep and my day is pretty good so far!

Ray Nicolet said...

The last season made me sad.

OneEyeCharlie said...

I got an extra shotgun you can borrow if necessary, Kristin. Ain't no Enty zombies gonna get us.

Uhhhh... said...

but it's so nice outside

Mark B said...

I remember reading about a guy who was superstitious about Friday the 13th, so stayed in bed, but then his bedroom floor collapsed and he died or something.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

I t'aint scared of Enty zombies! What are they gonna do, kill me with poor grammar?

I still have the crossbow you got me for Arbor Day, Charlie. If anyone needs me I'll be hiding in my tub I Am Legend-styles.

StewMcG said...

Sorry but it's an awesome day. It's my oldest daughter's 19th birthday! Now I need to rush through the rest of my work day, so I can go home and bake her a red velvet cake. :)

Sugar said...

It's really Saturday the 14th we all should be afraid of! Anyone else remember that movie?

FS said...

No, it's just a day. Full moon tonight may or may not genuinely affect people's behavior, but not the calendar. Like astrology, it's all just superstition and "parlor games" as a friend likes to say.

StewMcG said...

Sugar, I *love* that movie! I need to see if it's on Netflix or Amazon. Thanks for the reminder.

Sugar - I do, and I was gonna say the same thing! Richard Benjamin means srs bzns!

TalksTooMuch said...

Orrrrr it is a great time to talk about Book Club! Last day for suggestions for the June 29th meet, book and movie.

www.webebookclubbin.blogspot.com

I will put up a post tomorrow for voting on, that will close Sunday and I will post the choice in Monday. Not too many suggestions yet, jump on in there with an idea! I'm planning to put in some previous suggestions as well. Everyone / all welcome! Last time was a BLAST!

Sugar said...

Jeffery Tambor! I haven't seen it since I was a kid but I always remember that movie for some reason.
Even the sequel Saturday the 14th Strikes Back is a piece of art that cannot be denied.

Perhaps the fake Enty's will disappear and the real Enty will return.

auntliddy said...

I dont like to think about Fri 13. So i wont. I am up in New England and we are getting some Noah's Ark kinda rain! Luckily i accidentally bought a bag of Doves milk chocolates, and got 2 good books out of library. And got 2 mags in mail. Plus i have u guys. My cup runneth over.

auntliddy said...

And sure, yes, i should be cleaning, but who's gonna row over and yell at me? Lol

AJ said...

It's Friday and I'm playing instead of working. Just took the puppy for a walk & swim at the park. Beautiful day here since the rains cleared away in NJ.

Wee S said...

Parents 44th wedding anniversary today...coincidentally my granny died about 16 years ago today. I always joke to my dad that was my granny's final show of disapproval of him.

Sugar said...

I just read Orange is the New Black. Great book!
Just started the new season and it's crazy! Only seen the 1st two episodes though so no spoilers!

AJ said...

@Derek
Love me some Gilmore Girls marathons.

auntliddy said...

Aj, hope some of yhat coming my way! Instead we have thunderbumpers coming! Not that mind but everything is Just. So. Wet. Ugh!

Shocky said...

Going to a black belt Krav Maga ceremony, hosting a podcast and celebrating our 13 month anniversary :)

AJ said...

@AuntLiddy
Ug. No fun. Twas wet like that this morning. Puppy was not happy to miss her morning walk. Luckily I work from home and called it a day the minute the weather cleared up.
Sending lots of Sunshine vibes your way.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Sooooooo, no picking a fight with your fiancee for me. I totally did not call him a big wuss.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Maybe Shocky is the one graduating, hmmm Charlie?

Bikey said...

In my country it´s not Friday the 13th, it´s actually Tuesday the 13th. So I´m completely saf... hang on a minute, someone´s at the door...

OneEyeCharlie said...

She very well could be, my little Wiglet. However, her left hand visible in the pic looks to be in too nice of shape to have been bitch slapping little punks like me around. Whereas her fiancee looks like he could break me with mere intention. That being said, I could be wrong.

WareCat said...

I walked under a latter @ Party City.
I'll let u kno how that goes.

Snapdragon said...

It's fun to comment and joke about it, but it's just a day, a superstition, as @FS mentioned. Calendars are a man-made construct. And I'm skeptical about the lunar effect, too.

That said, I think it's pretty cool to be able to say I was born on a Friday the 13th with a full moon. :)

@Sugar, ahahaha, I had forgotten about that movie. Thanks!

Sillygurl said...

We sleep separately and its been heaven since.

Shocky said...

@charlie and @wiglet haha! It's my friend:) I am training for my green belt though. I like elbows and groin kicks. They keep the hands pretty

Tina Mallette said...

Nah Friday the 13th means getting out the hog and driving down to Port Dover on Lake Erie for a wild day and/or weekend.

Born to be Wild. Lots of people with assless chaps apparently.

Better than when Friday the 13th falls in the winter time.

My son's name was Jason and today is his birthday.

I love '80s slashers!

Ah, no wonder everything is going to hell. Meh. Tomorrow will be better.

Looziana Magnolia said...

Me too Renoblondee! Hubby and I got married on Friday the 13th, with a full moon and rain. And today is our 11 year anniversary with the exact same forecast :)

Renoblondee said...

Happy Anniversary @Looziana!

Cee Kay said...

I've always found Friday the 13th to be a really great day for me. This one seems to be no exception so far, but we'll see how it goes with that full moon!

Looziana Magnolia said...

Thanks!! Hope you're having a great day and weekend ahead!

LowKey said...

Friday the 13th... Full moon...
Gonna drink some beer and shoot off some fireworks with the neighbors.

What could possibly go wrong?

Alita said...

@Bikey - I had to look that up to check it out. Discovered that Spain and the 'Spanish speaking world' have the superstition as being about Tuesday 13.

Interesting, thanks!

Also Olé olé olé ... anyone from the 'Spanish speaking world' is going to be World Cupping right now! Go Australia, don't comply with the odds (the game is on now and I have stuff on so I'm avoiding the results until I get home and YouTube it).

RowdyRodimus said...

@StewMcG Hey, can you do me a favor and tell her she's beautiful* for me? Don't worry, not trying to make a move or anything. It just never hurts to know people think you're beautiful

*just like her Mom

FS said...

I'm in LA and I have serious rain envy. This drought is so horrible I eould happily switch weather with some of you for a day or two.

KSierra said...

I have absolutely no good luck whatsoever, so Friday the 13ths are usually oddly great for me! My teenager son feels the same way, "hey Mom, there's a Friday the 13th coming, great day for US". I guess it must be genetic ;( .

Marti said...

Hats off to you, Shocky! My 15-year old son does Krav and it's awesome and wicked hard. I'm happy just to watch.
