I guess we could go random

I have some weird superstitions:

1. I hate it when I am driving and I go on a bridge either over or under a moving train. This happened to me twice this week.

2. I will not sign a check in red ink.

3. I only pick up pennies that are heads up.

4. I think the number 23 is the luckiest number.

How about you?

In Korea, they believe that if you write someone's name in red, they will die.

Do you watch "Lost"? They have made a recurring theme of the number 23. It is quite an auspicious number.

I swear to you that I read "pennies" and "penises" like THREE TIMES IN A ROW. And I was like, "Hah. Heads up. That's funny. Wait. What?"

@shoesonwrong: HaHaHaHa

My only random stuff is.. well not really random at all.

'cept I will only write in black ink... never use any other colors and hate pencils but must use them for work.

I become unreasonable irritated when I hear my parents shorten names of people or items. Dorothy is "Dot". The restaurant La Madelein is "La Mad". Their old car (The Cavalier) was "The Cav". It makes me want to scream.

OMG where can I begin with all my superstitious crazy stuff? I always pick up pennies. But I also have to say out loud while I'm picking them up,"Find a penny, pick it up. It will bring you lots of luck." I also don't store knives in such a way that they will point at anyone who happens to be in the house. This is hard since I move a lot but luckily I've always been able to find a drawer that will point them outwards. Those are the only too I'll admit to today. All my superstitions would make a good blog post!

I always liked 24. I'm not sure why, I just have. But I always pick up pennies. It's money! I'm too cheap to not pick them up.

I liked your random blog :)

I won't pick up a penny when things are going well because I think it's bad luck not to leave the good luck for someone who needs it more. This is not a weird superstition, however. It is perfectly reasonable.

If I am in the car and a song comes on that I love, I will listen to the end of it, even if I have stopped the car at my destination.

I have always been a fan of 4 and 7, but not 47. Can't explain why.

I make wishes when I see white horses, I don't open umbrellas indoors, and I love the number 3. And full moons. :)

Oh, and I don't walk under ladders.

Silly stuff, really.

My number is 19. my bday is 2/19, my scout troop was 219, my homeroom in 3 different schools was 119.
If I'm driving and a black cat runs across the road I make an x on the corner of the windshield.(I don't know WHERE that came from)

I won't walk under a ladder. I don't know why.
I cringe when people drop silverware in my house. When I was growing up, I was told that, it meant that company was coming.
Weird, huh?

Hugs!!

Traceytreasure said...

Oh, I thought of another one. When I see 11:11 on the clock. I make a wish.

Hugs!!

Do you think number one is due to the fact Dad used to park under the train trestle when the train was going over because "that was the safest place to be."? It used to scare me to death!

Music Lover said...

I always wish upon a star - always. And occasionally it comes true!

You've a new fan, SueBob - me! So good to see you at Curt's memorial. Lousy reason, but heart-warming get-together.

Deodand said...

I'm not superstitious. A train bridge actually came down on some people in my city a few years ago - while a train was going over it. Not that that's likely to happen to you!

the new girl said...

I'm not superstitious at all, really.

But I get literal shivers every time I cross over a rail-road track.

Schmutzie said...

I have this weird idea that anything signed in red ink nullifies itself.

jennster said...
