The Vainglorious Friday Five

1. Are you superstitious?

No - I prefer the term "spiritual" :-P

2. What extremes have you heard of someone going to in the name of superstition?

Somebody in grade school wouldn't talk to me on Friday the 13th's, because of my birthday.

There was also that guy what killed people who were unlucky. Or something.

3. Believer or not, what's your favorite superstition?

That Friday the 13th is unlucky, because I am its living paradox. I was born on a Tuesday, though - which might explain why I could never get the hang of Tuesdays . . .

4. Do you believe in luck? If yes, do you have a lucky number/article of clothing/ritual?

I'm going to have to be split Han Solo/Obi Wan on this one - Han Solo (who stands in as a metaphor for both Coyote and Kierkegaard) insists that luck is the driving force for the universe (rather than the Force), and Obi Wan (standing in for Rinpoche and Mishra) who insists that there is no such thing as luck. You make your own luck - luck is just a success that you have prepared for sub-consciously over time, a combination of natural talent, neural firing, and latent qi energy. And Pop-Tarts.

And yes, I'm just bull-shitting names and concepts at this point. It's more . . . fantastical that way . . .

5. Do you believe in astrology? Why or why not?

No, but I believe in neuro-linguistic programming, which is almost the same, except when it's better.

  • Good sing-along songs?

    O Gentle Readers! I am trying to come up with good songs to practice on my acoustic guitar. Ideally, they are the type of songs that are fun to sing…

  • It can always look up

    Remember: the man who played Richard M. Nixon in Frost/Nixon is the same man who played Skeletor in The Masters of the Universe.
