Rotten Luck Dice

Rotten Luck DiceAnd now for the person who has everything…Rotten Luck Dice. This is a set of five extremely cool dice designed by Douglas Little that are made out of a zinc alloy and Swarovski crystals. Each one is engraved with a skull, a peace sign, the devil, the number 13, a shamrock and a horseshoe and comes in a cool black box. Now for the price that’s not so cool…$195! They are beyond neat, but I’m not sure they are worth quite that much. Of course, Barneys is selling them so that might explain the price. If you go over to Unica Home though they are selling them at 20% off. They would be neat to have sitting around to play with. The kind of people that can afford to spend $195 on a trinket seem like they might have quite a bit of luck already and wouldn’t want to risk the luck of the roll. I also tend to picture rich executive types as not having a wicked sense of humor which I think is required for an item like this.

Friday the 13th

Friday the 13thCan you believe that I never noticed it was Friday the 13th yesterday? I usually look so forward to those days. They always talk about it on the news like it’s some huge event and people are convinced some horrible thing will happen. I enjoy that part of it, not really the day itself. I just think it’s a crack up that people put so much onto a number and a particular day. They made crap loads of those Friday the 13th movies just based on our irrational fear of that day! According to the Wikipedia entry there is no definitive answer as to where this came from. It seems to be mostly a 20th century superstition, but you can read more about it yourself here. If you do have a fear of that day maybe reading the entry will help you not be scared of it. I’m all for scary days, but in my life it’s just for fun. I don’t take it seriously as a couple of my readers seems to think. Lighten up people and enjoy life a little. Next time Friday the 13th comes around enjoy it for the silliness that it is. Now, I know if I don’t answer this I will be bombarded with emails, so yes I do like the movies and the second one is my favorite.
