    Today is Friday the 13th, and a black cat crossed our path while I was out walking the dog this morning.

    I'm thinking I should spill some salt, walk under a ladder, and break a mirror just to see what happens next. :D

    LOL :D

    On another note, when I saw the thread title I was like "what"??? :confused:
    I read those words in Greek (my language). I had to shake my head and I smelled my coffee mug which was next to me just to make sure it didn't had scotch in it :p

    Do you speak Greek David?

    No, my Greek vocabulary is pretty much limited to παρακαλώ, Ευχαριστούμε, and Πόσο? But those words got me through weeks and weeks of travel there. :p

    Nice. I hadn't even thought about it being F-t-13th until I saw your post. I almost forgot tomorrow is V-Day, as well. :)

    I fully forgot it was V-Day until about an hour ago. Luckily we'd already decided to combine a night out we booked at the local pub for Shrove Tuesday as our V-Day thing.

    F-13th next month too.

    Good thing the Greeks didn't help you out with words like Vlaka and Malaka :). I had to read the title a few times, it sounded greekish

    Hmmmm... Those words sound strangely familiar. No doubt I have heard them (and some others like them) before. :p

    AKA Friggatriskaidekaphobia - But I don't like that term as much as it mixes Greek and Germanic
