Friday the 13th 2012

What year starts off with a Friday the 13th and is fine with it? 2012, apparently. It's only just begun and already, it's being boinked from behind. Personally, this day has put me through the wringer - like dealing with the IRS while PMS'ing. About the only thing that made me feel grateful for my current situation was stumbling on a Cosmo article on how to survive a breakup. It's been a while since I've experienced one. I read it and wondered if I was ever that stupid. No doubt I was, I just have really good friends who forgive the douche-y-ness abound. Besides, reading the sidebar articles on Low Down & Dirty Breakups, I actually patted myself on the back for not going that far into loserville.

Since it's Friday the 13th, I'm going to make like a horror flick and not get too deep into a character before killing him or her off.

I actually like the number thirteen. It's PBS "Mister Rogers", "Sesame Street" and my long, lost niece's birthday in October. It's ominous, humbly threatening like Lego's.



Today started off warm and humid - ended up windy and frigid. A lot of relationships are like that. As a matter of fact, most relationships - after time - fall into that category. It's always the ones who say they'll "never" become one of those pet peeves that become that exact pet peeve.

That's what Friday, the 13th of January 2012 has taught me. See, I told you - plenty of bouncing around all over the place.

There's a certain satisfaction in knowing that you're right and things actually fall into place, without your bitchy-prodding, proving that fact. When it happens for me, I'll be the first to tell you. In the meantime, I'll work on my post for M.L.K Day, which is a very big day for me personally, and leave you with this very funny clip of Zuki talking without his teeth.

Before you watch it, he's saying:

"Mickey Mouse's car had a hole in the tire,
Mickey Mouse's car had a hole in the tire,
and he fixed it with chewing gum, hchack-pucht!"

  1. Sorry about your crappy Friday the 13th. I made peace with the day long ago b/c my birthday happens to fall on the 13th of November (with several Fridays along the way), and Jason hasn't come for me yet or anything. But I've seen enough of his movies to know that he only goes after people who have The Sex on the 13th. And I'm much too tired for that.
    Thanks for the Zuki smile. :)

    1. You're lucky to be born on the 13th - makes it easy to remember, if you ask me. And here's a little trivia - that was Kevin Bacon who was killed by Jason for having sex on the 13th! Kind of makes you want to see it again, huh?

  4. the origins of Friday the 13th are quite innocent enough, it seems that this was the date that the leader
    of the Knights Templers was arrested, and burnt to death by the pope, and the King of France, and as you know, every one owed money to the Templers, so they killed them to get out of paying back the money that they owed!

  5. Man, talk about gumming your words to death! My little one has a tooth up front that's about to fall out soon.

    O, and thanks for the reminder about taxes. I need to get busy myself.

    1. Sure, he thinks it's funny because he hasn't realized it's a preview to his future. Get the sausages, toast and corn ready. Oh, and don't forget words that start with "d"!
