Phil just reminded me what day it is. Normally I’m not superstitious, but the thought that we’re going to sign the contracts on the new house this afternoon, ON FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH, is just a leetle bit scary. :(
Is it a sign? Probably not. But then…maybe so.

Well…ever wondered why Friday the 13th is such a bad day?
Apparently – it stems from the day that Pope Pius the somethingth jailed (and summarily executed) the entire Knights Templar, leaving them to ‘curse the very day’…
There’s a few theories, some of them here:
But the Knights Templar one seems to hold the most basis for fact, and is the one that crops up the most.
Speaking of Templar Knights – from the 12th – 14th Century – we have, I believe, 4 buried in one of the churchyards in Biddulph…
You know… The number 13 has been a highly significant number in my life. Decide for yourself if it is good or bad:
I lost my virginity on November 13th (we won’t mention a year). Come to think of it, why does one say “lost it”? I didn’t lose it. I know exactly where it went.
The father of my child’s was born on July 13th. We got together on August 13th. I think the events surrounding the eventual birth of my only biological child are fairly important, no?
On the day I interviewed for this job, my boss revealed that his employee number is 13. He took it because he knew others might be superstitious and he’s not. I was hired on the spot and have been here for 8 years. I’m pretty sure I’ll be here for 13 :P.
I know there are many, many other instances of 13 being significant – it’s only my horrid memory that prevents me from relaying them.
Buying a first home is a pretty significant thing. In my book, this is the perfect day. Best of luck to you :).
