my friend and I drove through a blizzard to get home today. Normally it takes 2 hours. It took us 4.5 to get back. We made it all the way back safely, after braving the icy roads. Once he dropped me off at my house, and started backing out of our driveway, he rammed his car into the fire hydrant near the bottom of our lot.
That's Friday the 13th for you
There ya go. the luck of the day stopped you from dying in the blizzard!

I had 3 quizzes yesterday. I should have complained to my teachers. (unless just having to take quizzes counts as bad luck)
I had a woman nearly back into my parked car at the grocery store after I posted this topic yesterday. If I hadn't have honked I would have had a bad 13th.
Today was fantastic, got to work and there's no work until Monday at 1:30 AM. So I read two short William Burroughs books in 4 hours (Ghost of a Chance and Port of Saints). I had hoped they'd last all night. Then came home & I'll get paid for the next 8 that I'm not even there. I get to read almost all day tomorrow (4pm - 1:30 am) and get paid for that too! Groovy!
It was a bad day. Our receptionist was laid off...everybody is devasted over it. She was my "buddy", next to my office. I'm still stunned.
It's one of those bittersweet things...it's good that it wasn't me (which I was sort of expecting).

That's a crummy day for sure!
That happened to me at my old job at Gopher State Litho. They laid off my buddy old "Bill the Cutter" (a 65 year old paper trimmer). I cried when he left cos he was my only real pal there. Nobody else there liked him too much cos he was so old and crotchey. I always just laughed in his face at all of his old man mumblings and treated him like a grandpa or something, so we got along real good.
The next day they laid me and the rest of the night crew off as well, so I didn't have much chance to miss him. Guess they had to pay for the new six color press they had ordered somehow!
