Tradition has it that bad things might happen on Friday the 13th. So here’s the Friday (the 13th) Post #27 for Feb 13 2009:
- Find a variety of unusual Old English insults on the website Shakespearean Insulter, where all quotes are taken from the collected works of William Shakespeare, such as: ” Thou warped rude-growing jolt-head!” or “Were I like thee I’d throw away myself.” Thanks for the link, Kham!
- Friday the 13th decisions result in cautionary tales. A list about bad behavior online fr0m Switched relates this example from “Most Embarassing Online Mishaps“. A bank intern called to say he wouldn’t be in to work that day due to a “family emergency”. As it happened, he went to a party that day… and (dumbly) posted the photos of his party-attire on Facebook, where his boss saw them. Yeah, so which one of us have never clicked the “Send” key by mistake?
- Did you know that there are over a dozen movies in the Friday the 13th series… and another one was released this week? Are you embarrassed to admit you’ve seen most of them? Eeek! If you’re a cheesy horror movie fan, it is always difficult choosing between Jason and Freddy. Anyway, here’s a feature article about a group of movie stars who acted in previous “Friday the 13th” films – from the New York Daily Post (Feb 13 2009).
And that’s the Friday the 13th Post! Take care and stay safe over a long weekend.
