FUN FRIDAY: Superstitions (and upcoming GIVEAWAY news)
Happy Friday!! :) I'm starting a new thing here on my blog entitled FUN FRIDAY where I will reveal something about me, some personal tidbit that will allow my followers to get to know me better. I follow several blogs and I sometimes wonder who the bloggers REALLY are behind the words, so I thought it would be a cool thing to open up a bit and to reveal more about who Karen really is.
Today's tidbit: I am highly superstitious. HIGHLY. One season, the Colts (I'm also a humongous football fan, but that's no secret!) started out undefeated for many, many weeks. That first week, I had used a specific spoon at work and since they won, I decided I couldn't wash that spoon and had to keep using it. I'm talking almost daily yogurts here, people. And it couldn't be rinsed off or it would lose the magic! Who could have predicted they would have won 13 games that year before losing. 13 games. 13 weeks!! Of using the SAME SPOON. It started to have visible nastiness on it and coworkers and friends threatened to steal it to wash it, it was that gross.
I attribute that amazing season to my dirty spoon. I can't help it. And I have weird rituals about almost everything. I have to use the same bookmark right now. It's a paper bookmark of Melissa Marr's Radiant Shadows. There's nothing special about it. It's not signed, it's not laminated, nothing. My cats have chewed on the corners and it's gotten wet and a little wrinkly in places. But I feel like I MUST use it with each new book or the book will suck. It's completely illogical, but it's just something I have to do.
I also wear the same necklace every day. My fiance bought it for me on our 5 month anniversary. The design on the charm matches the tattoo he has on his chest so I wear it daily to keep him close to my heart. That's not the strange part. The strange part is that the clasp LOVES to turn around and end up in front and every time this happens, I have to kiss the clasp and make a wish before turning it around to the back again.
What can I say? I'm an odd one. I could list more examples, but I think the above ones prove I have some weird superstitions. I think it's just something about me that adds to my charm. That's what I tell myself anyway! Do any of you have weird superstitions? If so, please leave a comment about them, I would love to hear them!
One last thing before I jettison off to what will hopefully be a fantastic weekend... GIVEAWAY NEWS!! I have reached 250 followers!! *tosses confetti* How very exciting. I'll be coming up with a giveaway to mark that accomplishment and hope to have it up next week so be on the lookout! Hope everyone has a smashingly fantabulous weekend!
