Kim the black cat to be avoided today, but Pookie is not paraskavede....thing

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Today is Friday the thirteenth, known as for bringing bad luck ! Many people avoid travel and other dangerous activities on this day. The clinical name for fear of Friday the Thirteenth is "paraskavedekatriaphobia." (don't break your tongue !) Many cultures view the number thirteen itself as an "unlucky" number, which accounts for the lack of a "thirteenth" floor in tall buildings, thirteenth apartment in apartment complexes, and other missing 13's.

So please avoid to take a plane today or even your car or bicycle, the best is you stay in bed the whole day and tell your boss that you suffer from above "paraskavede....." He will be very worried about your illness and ask if it is not contagious because it sounds so sophisticated and he probably doesn't know what it is.

Please be careful not to do the following !

- Don't Spill salt it may cause a fight or argument ! Attention during your breakfast !

- Avoid a single magpie it is considered a sign of bad luck. (And it can steel your jewlery)

- Avoid that a black cat crosses your path, because something very bad will happen (I personally have to avoid my cat Kim the whole day)

- Don't Break a mirror it may bring you bad luck for 7 years. For once do your make up without mirror, a all over smeared lipstick is better than seven years of misfortune.

- Don't walk underneath an open ladder it brings bad luck. Walk on the street there are no ladders, you only risk to be overrun by a car.

- If today you receive your lover and he is wearing a hat (or a cap), pay attention that he doesn't place it on the bed it also brings bad luck.

and don't put your horse in a stable n°13, if you will keep your neck !

If tomorrow you are still reading my post and comment, then I will know that you followed my warnings !


What is your favorite fruit?

Coreless grapes, I can eat them the whole day

Who is someone you consider as a great role model?

Nobody. Never met one !

If you were to spend one night anywhere within an hour of your home, where would you choose?

My best friends place and chat with her during the whole night !

Main Course
Name something you do too often.

Chatting, everywhere, home, street, phone etc. I don't have any button to switch me off !

Fill in the blank: I really like blogging because I can even chat by writing and with the whole world !

Your answers were great! You sound like a talkative and friendly gal.
Especially enjoyed your main course and dessert.
So nice to blog with you from so far away!

Melody said...

Great feast.

Dorothy said...

I went and tagged you for a music meme but I cannot remember if you did one or not. It's up to you. But come see.

By the way...my apartment number is 13.

Je ne connaissais pas la superstition du chapeau sur le lit!
Ma classe porte le numéro 13.Le nom qui nomme cette phobie est vraiment très compliqué! Aujourd'hui j'ai un visiteur: le plombier! Il va déboucher le conduit de la salle de bain! pouaf!
Je suis contente d'apprendre que tu vas avoir un temps meilleur aujourd'hui! Rosie va pouvoir continuer a découvrir le jardin! Tu me tiens au courant pour ses nouveaux exploits à l'extérieur!

Puss-in-Boots said...

I forgot it was the 13th today. Oh well, I've survived doing my shopping and work. Haven't even seen my magpies today. No black cats around. Don't use salt.

Ho hum, just another day...lol!

Alice said...

Hi Gattina! I've enjoyed your feast very much. We share the same Dessert... Grapes especially seedless type sound delicious!

Now, you have a wonderful weekend!

Great feast. I too am a chatter. With anyone, anytime, anyplace. Hubby laughs at me because he also is a chatter!

Hootin' Anni said...

You never fail to make me smile! Everything you've served up for us today is a charming, loving menu.

Now...go have Mr. Gattino look for your 'off button'!! No ---wait...your 'on button'....oh heck, you figure it out.

Jodi said...

Great feast. Colorless grapes, eh? Have a great Friday!

The Bass Player's Wife said...

Great feast. I am sorry that you have never met a good role model. I so very often look to mine for answers. I'd be lost-- super good for you that you don't need that "crutch," as it were!

Lori said...

Great feast. Happy Friday the 13th:)

Linda said...

Thanks for reminding me tht today is Friday the 13th. I too can talk with anyone anywhere. I'm always stricking up a conversation with the person behind me in the check out line at the grocery store.

BeccA's Buzz said...

I love your enthusiasm for the spoken word!

The Gal Herself said...

Sounds like your salad would be a good old-fashioned "slumber party." What a great idea!

I've also heard about the 'walk underneath an open ladder' think, but I don't believe in such.

What a wonderful Friday 13 post and a great treat!

Renee said...

Wonderful answers and feast! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great weekend.

I'm not at all superstitious or a believer in "luck," so none of the Friday the 13th stuff bothers me. :-)

No role models at all? No one with any admirable qualities? That's sad.

Love your dessert!

Hi Gattina

I've tagged you for a music meme. Have a look at today's post on my blog.

I forgot grapes were a fruit. Weird.


Mother of Invention said...

When I had 2 black cats, I said they were good luck since one cancelled out the other! It was my sister's birthday today and nothing bad happened. I'm not all that superstitious. I just broke a mirror last week!

Pamela said...

How about a roll model?
Thats what I would be called if posing for a nude painting.

You're chatting makes me smile!

Jackie said...

Yummy feast!

Mine's up

Liz Hinds said...

Grapes! I eat them by the bagful and can't stop!
