    I always always always have to knock on wood, and I have to knock exactly 3 times (because that's a good number.) This probably comes from the time I was driving home and thought to myself, "Gee, I've never gotten a speeding ticket!" And then, 5 minutes later, guess what happens! So now I have to knock on wood every time I think something like that or I freak out :)

    Thunder and rain here in New England as I'm preparing to hop the Amtrak for NYC for the week. It's supposed to be rainy there as well.

    TOTD: No, not at all. I don't walk under ladders, but that's because there's generally stuff on top that is likely to be unstable. I don't think I have any superstitions, although my girlfriend, for all her youth and education, certainly maintains a number from Eastern Europe. After all, she is from Transylvania.
    Like keeping a wreath a garlic over her bedroom window...and a sharpened stake under her pillow, a crucifix? Well, it didn't work...you still got to her! :D

    "If you sew anything on Sunday, you will have to pick out the stitches with your nose on Judgement Day."

    So, I got up at 4 to sew the silly uniform. I actually thought it was a Biblical thing but apparently it's just a superstition. She drilled it in me very well!!

    TOTD: are you superstitious? If so, what are some of your beliefs?


    Here are some Old Wives's Tales and Superstitions to jog your memory.
    So cool that you are sewing patches on Boy Scout uniforms!! Good for you!

    As far as the superstitious thing.. I do not have a superstitious bone in my body. The closest I might get is to have a pork and saurkraut meal on New Years Day, but I only do that every otherNew Years Day or so, and am really only doing it for tradition.. like turkey on Thanksgiving day.

    oh man..that was GOOOD..now I can see how you can keep up with the queen of snark...you do have some defense mechanisms after all...


    My maternal Grandmother was a midwife in the early 1900's, when I graduated Nursing School my mother passed down her medical journals on midwifery, I loved reading the medical advice which was nothing more than superstition, but at that time was on the edge knowledge.
    I smile because I don't know what the heck is going on.
