Who had good luck yesterday? I want to hear about good things that happened to people!

(Yesterday was pretty much an ordinary day for me, except of course for the whole Earth's-crust-cooling thing.)

Well...yesterday, I had the good fortune to experience for the first time an actual spectacularly unlucky Friday the 13th! I've never had that happen before!

Well, it was the last day of work before a month-long vacation. So I was hoping to get out early to get a head start on some of the preparation.

'Long about 4:00, Microsoft Word decided that it didn't like that plan, and went kablooie, taking with it the document I had worked on for two weeks. No autobackup, nothin'. I still don't understand what happened--there are supposed to be built-in safeguards to keep this from happening.

This was the one thing that I absolutely had to finish before I could go on my vacation. I finally left the building at 9:30.

I made ice cream for the first time... but it was TOO CREAMY.

I dread what's to come. These things always happen in threes.

I got a rectangular basket, about 3' long by 1' wide, with about 100 individually wrapped 3" vanilla frosted shortbread cookies, courtesy of a financial advisor group in Michigan that was pleased with some work I did for them.

I didn't have a cartoon uploaded to my comic site yesterday due to a lack of inspiration, but I'm not sure if that counts as Friday's bad luck or Thursday's.

On the plus side, I had a nice meal at Georgia Brown's. Watermelon salad is great.

From the Georgia Brown's Low Country Cuisine site:

"Sweet Summer Watermelon Salad

Romaines and Watercress topped with Seasonal Watermelon, Bermuda Onions, Mint, Cilantro, and Goat Cheese with a Mulled Balsamic Vinegar and Truffle Vinaigrette"

I hade Coyote luck yesterday -- by sheer happenstance, I stumbled into a job.

Why's it Coyote Luck? It's a minimum-wage job at a comic and game shop, that will pretty much require my presence every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

quelonzia has four of the next five Fridays off, giving her rare and precious three-day weekends.

Not much to tell here, except that the folks in the Lapinian Embassy here (yeah, the four residents of this flat) went out for dinner and a movie. For dinner , we managed to get in right before the place got absolutely packed with the dinner crowd, meaning that the movie we thought we were gonna miss, we just barely made it to in time.

Kung Fu Panda. Awesome film, and I'm so gay for Tigress and that snow-leopard guy, Tai Lung.

i've NEVER had a bad F13. yesterday was no different. fairly pleasant weather. even if it was just a little warmer than i would have liked. work load was light.

i always remember POGO. oh NO, Friday the 13th fall on FRIDAY!!!

in order to remember what the date is, i remember what day F13 falls on. since it falls on Friday this month, i know the other Fridays will be the 6th, 20th and 27th. then i can recall the date for any given day within the month.

Nice foods last night with OyVey, and (ahem - good times).

I also had two bankruptcy cases confirmed, but it was just a formality - the work was done beforehand, and the hearing on Thursday - the judge just signed the orders on Friday the 13th. That means money at the end of the month, since they were Chapter 13 (payment plan) cases, and I get paid out of what the debtor pays the bankruptcy trustee.

I went to the local CVS and noticed they had a new thing in which if one scanned their "club card", some coupons would come out. I noticed one was kinda interesting: Save $1.00 on 2 bags of candy. The 2 bags of candy happened to be on sale as well ($0.88 and $0.25). With the $1.00 off coupon, the total came out to be... yep, you got it. $0.13!

I also went with a local friend to an arcade in Long Beach, as their Orange location shut down. I had one of their "cards" with money on it. For some stupid reason, the Long Beach location had a different card system and couldn't accept my old card. I demanded the corporate office number, which one of the employees gave me. I left a message, telling about my disgust with their card system. (I also posted a message on their website.)

Then went to Gameworks to redeem my $10 birthday prize, only to find out that it was for video games only and not redemption games, which miffed me as well.

I guess 1 out of 3 isn't bad.
