    Default Friday the 13th...

    For fun: Are you superstitious?

    The most extreme I'll go is sometimes saying the phrase "touch wood" after a sentence so as not to jinx myself. Other than that, I think it's a load... or is it
    Do you believe in bad luck?

    No, I'm not superstitious. I would have been happy to have my bub today too but no sign yet...

    I think luck has a lot to do with your attitude. I have a friend who is very negative and pessimistic, and tends to have a lot of "bad luck". While other people I know who are optimistic and positive seem much happier and have much more "good luck" in their lives

    I say touch wood and then I actually have to touch it, if there is none around paper will do. Not really superstitious but I do have weird things like counting certain things...

    "Touch wood" is the only thing I do.

    Yeah, I am a little. Not sure about the Friday the 13th part though. I think it can go either way - be really lucky or unlucky. I usually try and buy a scratchie or something.

    Not particularly supersticious... I will say touch wood. However, when I was 17 I had a terrible car accident and was injured pretty badly on Friday the 13th during a blackout that effected a whole power grid including the traffic lights. Today, I fell over in our backyard and hurt my arm, plus my sound system blew up... Not feeling very lucky today LOL

    I do the same, except I'll just knock on my head if there's no wood available.. lol.. I figure that there's enough saw dust in there to be a sufficient wood subsidy

    As for the counting, I don't really count but the TV volume has to be on an even number...

    Hmm, I don't blame you! That does sound pretty unlucky!
