I used to not think that Friday the 13th was unlucky, but it's now Saturday the 14th, and the previous day has been hell for me. Though it might just be a "coincidence". -_-

Wow, my Friday the 13th is just beginning and yours is over already. Isn't time travel wonderful?

I was born on Friday the 13th, yet have the devil's luck, so I'm not superstitious about that particular thing.

what is the devil's luck?

I may not be superstitious about it, but I spend the day making odd comments about it being Friday the 13th to random strangers and coworkers. It beats talking about the weather, right?

Normally I'd put "no" or "I'm not sure" on the first question, but I have had a horrible day today... anything that could go wrong has gone wrong. :\

I own a black cat who crosses my path regularly. So I don't care about no triskaidephobia.

You mean there are people who actually believe in that stuff?

No, I don't consider it unlucky. They're about the same as any other day, sometimes they're fine, sometimes they're great, sometimes they're really freaking crappy. *shrug* I guess you're more likely to remember the bad Friday the 13s because you're thinking about it.

I do think of my self as a somewhat superstitious person, but I guess this isn't one of them.. :p

My something else also relates to numerology. I thought of that last night.. 2-4-2=8 ok number.. maybe! It's ALWAYS a maybe.. usually. Sometimes. lol

I didn't even realize it was F13 until someone mentioned it half way through the day. We did have a decent shake of an earthquake here, but that happens on any ol' day (here=Costa Rica)

Friday the 13th is usually lucky for me, but this one has just been a giant fuckarow. It started yesterday, and it's just kept going. It won't quit! Stop the world, I WANT TO GET OFF.

I never used to think it was unlucky, but one of my cats got hurt today (we're not sure how exactly) and she can barely walk from all the pain. :( So...now I'm not so sure.
