Pamela Voorhees: You see, Jason was my son and today is his birthday...

Happy Friday the 13th!! (Exactly 3 month's 'til Kendall's b-day!)

Watch out for black cats, avoid mirrors and ladders and, by all means, don't spill the salt!
A Friday occurring on the 13th day of any month is considered to be a day of bad luck in English, German, Polish and Portuguese-speaking cultures around the globe. Similar superstitions exist in some other traditions. In Greece or Spain, for example, Tuesday the 13th takes the same role. The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia (a word that is derived from the concatenation of the Greek words Παρασκευή, δεκατρείς, and φοβία, meaning Friday, thirteen, and phobia respectively; alternative spellings include paraskevodekatriaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia) or friggatriskaidekaphobia, and is a specialized form of triskaidekaphobia, a phobia (fear) of the number thirteen.

I think I'll just stay under the covers until Saturday, the 14th!

Hi Valerie!

Friday the 13th doesn't usually bother me but seriously, yesterday we had major bad luck. Some guy hit Rick in the Patton Creek parking lot. He had to take his car downtown to the body shop and then get a rental, a Toyota Yarus (sp?) which is like a clown car for that matter, then my sewing machine kept breaking needles and the Wii remote wouldn't work! haha, I wasn't superstitious but I think I am now.
