Getting to Know You -- Sept 2019

Recommended Posts

I thought all sailors were supposed to be supposed to be superstitious! You mean you aren't making sacrifices to the sea gods? You're totally ruining all my my preconceptions about sea life. Next you're going to tell me you aren't all drunk on rum 90% of the time. ::P:

 

 

 As I said earlier, I'm not superstitious, but I'd never tempt fate and would avoid sailing on re-named ships.

 

 I did once sail wit a sweet old Scots Captain who was dreadfully superstitious about causing bad weather. In fact even saying the word "Weather" would cause him to almost accuse people of calling up typhoons.

Question for Sept. 13:  Friday the 13th, lucky, unlucky, or superstitious nonsense? 

I think Friday the 13th is superstition, but I DO believe in how a full moon causes people to do stupid things.

It’s only unlucky if you happen to be a black cat... and that’s just because people are elfholes.

Superstitious nonsense!

Well how else can you identify a mimic and blind the rogue behind you?

 

That's the sort of environment our ancestors lived in. :;):

I think it's an awesome day! 

 

...Pay no heed to the fact it's payday.... Even if payday technically was yesterday...

Nothing bad has ever happened to me on the day, so I'd like to go with superstitious nonsense. However, that may be because I took extra care on that day because certain individuals in my family do believe it's unlucky. So, basically, I have no clue. Guess I'll see if anything happens today/tonight.

Luck is what we make of it. For me, just another day.

Challenge for Sept 7-8:  Take a picture of something you did, or something that interested you this weekend and share it. Tell us about what you were doing or what you saw.  It can be ordinary, or extraordinary.  

I had a birthday. We went to the Wine Festival. (Image goes here)

Question for Sept. 6: What song lyrics describe your week?

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world

Yes.

 

It honestly depends on what's going on. Today, for instance, has been pretty good so far.

I always did.

And it's actually closer to 95% of the time.::P:

So the extra 5% is the difference between navy and civilian sailors?

Didn't even realize what day today is. Guess I'm on the side of nonsense.

Eh.  It’s a day.  I attach no specific meaning to it.

 

I’ll offer a superstition though: I once went to a school where the students would pour pixy sticks in the crack between the elevator and the building periodically to appease the great elevator gods.  I had a friend who consistently got stuck in the building’s elevators who did not offer tribute.  None of my friends who offered tribute got stuck.

 

Me?  I took the stairs.  They were faster.  (I was much more fit back then.)

Question for Sept 14-15:  How do you base your figures? Do you have different styles? Photos of examples are welcome.
