    What?

    It's what?

    I thought you said somewhere that you were going to start going to sleep earlier.

    I took a nap too late in the day, so I didn't think there was much of a point in going to sleep on time.

    I think everyone should tell your worst Friday the 13th story.

    I was in Okinawa with the military and got in a helicopter crash. One crushed vertebrae, one cracked, stabbed in the leg, stitches all in my upper lip area, broken nose and cheek bone. And I wasn't even originally scheduled to fly that day. August 13th, 2004.

    13 used to be my lucky number. It's just a feeling, you know how it is.

    I know what you mean. My permanent number at a bunch of local auction houses is built around the number 13.

    My son, and myself are both born on the 13th. We have birthdays on Friday the 13th every few years.

    No problems here ...

    In fact, I think 13 is a lucky number ... at least in our family.

    I like the number 13. One of my sons and I were born on the 13th. It is a lucky number for me. Friday the 13th should be known as Jsharr Day!

    I picked up some doughnuts and chocolate milk on the way to work, thus hopefully warding off any and all evil.

    Actually, today is the 27th of Tamuz in the Jewish calendar. Use that date for the day if anyone is stuperstitious.

    I'll just start using that date and when my dad asks why I didn't call him for his bday I'll tell him I didn't realize it was ALSO July 13th. Silly mistake on my part.

    Not many triskadekaphobes here

    I lost a nice cushy job on Friday 13th as it moved out of state, and I didn't, due to a merger.
    And it was Good Friday to boot!
