Who Is Affected By Friday The 13th?

Fri Jan 13, 2006 5:31 pm

So today we have both a Friday 13 and the fool moon (let's sacrifice a chicken  Silly ).

It has already affected Runway23 who currently has an indigestion.

How about you ?

Well, don't get me started!

Not only have my tasty new 19" racks not arrived from the supplier, but a certain other supplier has informed me they have dispatched my tasty new HP servers - and I have nowhere to put them! Sad

They are going to arrive and have to occupy the space which is supposed to be taken up by 19" racks! But instead the 19" racks are going to arrive, after the servers, and find that the space they should be occupying is already occupied by hundreds of boxes with HP across the side of them!

How the hell am I going to sort this mess out?

A near full moon and a Friday the 13th...I would stay off the streets and out of the bars/pubs tonight, it could be crazy out there!  crazy  To me if you are predisposed to think of bad things happening on Friday the 13th's, then you hype up the link when little things go wrong. Just go about your business as usual and not get caught up in it and you'll survive.

I can still feel it if i turn my head the wrong way, but as long as it gradually gets better, i wont see a doctor (ive got insurance, dont worry Big grin ).

I'm not really a supersitious person or believe in freaky stuff but tonight made a believer out of me. I was at work(am a police officer) and had just over an hour to go before I got off work at midnight. So here my partner and I, patrolling around the downtown waterfront and are stopped near this club/restaurant that is amongst these high rise apartment buildings. So, we are there for maybe a minute and then all of a sudden we hear a loud bang followed by the scream of a woman. We look and woman is pointing to the roof of the club. Well, turns out a guy had just jumped out of his 26th Fl apartment window, and landed on the roof of the club which is adjacent to a high rise apartment. So, needless to say, the guy is out of the picture. I'll refrain from going into detail. No need for that. I've seen plenty of dead bodies in my day. Just found it a bit odd that first, a guy jumps out of his window nearly in front of me, and second, its on Friday the 13th.
So, anyhow, just thought I'd share this with the forum. Bit freaky, I'd say...

Normally Friday the 13th doesn't affect me but last night sure made a believe out of me on why that day can be unlucky.

First off..... had several near misses while driving down to Charlotte. Second, my best friend called on the verge of tears and started telling me about all these bad things that happened to her that day. Third, the guy whom I was supposed to be going on a date with today never called me back to re-confirm the details  Sad .

Although one good thing did come out of yesterday.....i'm an R.A. and I checked in this hot new resident on my floor, he's a Marine to top it off  Smile
