Friday 13th

Friday 13th so far has passed without any sort of accident, spillage or general misdemeanour. I can only recall two Friday 13th 'incidents' in my lifetime. First was breaking my wrist age 13. I turned up at casualty to find I was at least the eighth person waiting to be seen...with a broken wrist. Secondly, I remember calling home to say what I thought could be my 'final goodbye' before I boarded a bucket flight from Gate no 13 on Friday 13th. When I checked my ticket I was sitting in Seat 13 - aaggghhhh! In fact - it turned out to be rather good - I got upgraded to business and was offered champagne continuously all the way to Athens which was where I was bound. So it wasn't that unlucky at all...

It all depends on which calendar you adopt. Just keep swapping Julian for the other ones and you need never live through Fri 13th again.

I meant the Julian calendar, obviously, not some bloke called Julian.

Champagne flowing freely on Friday 13th?
Proof positive that it's all a load of old mumbo-jumbo.

Not that it explains all those broken wrists though...

I bet Swipe will have something to say about that.

Larousse Gastronomique - is huge and the litte guy on the cover looks a bit like a character from 'It Aint Half Hot Mum'. That must have hurt Arabella.

Friday 13th - the only thing to fear is fear itself..
