UNLUCKY? NO, SHIT JUST HAPPENS! we are, the first Friday the 13th of 2009.

If you're superstitious, you may not have gotten out of bed today. Or you may be treading very carefully so as not to disturb any of the 'spirits' that may be around. Maybe you're so afraid of bad luck and black cats today that you're scared to do anything at all. Well let me tell you, from someone who lives with a black cat, there's absolutely nothing to be afraid of. Of course if you let your fears and superstitions control you I'm sure bad things will happen....because you let them happen.

I don't believe in god or gods, the devil or demons so there is no reason for me to believe there is any such thing as bad luck or good luck. SHIT JUST HAPPENS! Sometimes it's our own doing and sometimes it's someone else.

Take as an example, me being laid off. It wasn't my 'bad luck' that caused me to become a member of the growing ranks of the unemployed, it was the crappy economy. Granted the 'crappy' economy was caused by a bunch of stupid politicians and greedy bankers/brokers, but that in itself did not cause me to 'acquire' bad luck. Once again, SHIT JUST HAPPENS.

Then there's times when GOOD SHIT HAPPENS.
Like today. Yeah, on Friday the 13th. I've been waiting what seems like forever for my first check from Unemployment, the one I should have had the second week of January. When I picked up the mail today viola, there's three checks. I don't think today was an 'unlucky' day....well at least not for me. Who knows what it was like for all you superstitious types.

Get over it people, grow up and realize that we can't control everything. Ya just gotta learn how to 'roll with the punches' folks 'cause sometimes SHIT JUST HAPPENS!!

I know I did!

Someone finally did their job and now you can breathe easier for a bit.
Today is my Grandmothers 95 Birthday, and 13 is my lucky number.
I am putting you on my Blogroll right now.

Haaaa!!! From one unbeliever to another, I agree: SHIT JUST HAPPENS!

A superstitious someone once told me she was robbed on Friday the 13th & that's what made her think maybe there was something to it. So I asked her if she was robbed EVERY Friday the 13th. She didn't know what to say to that.
