Paraskevidekatriaphobia info and poem via The Telegraph.

Hello, my dark lovelies!  Today is Paraskevidekatriaphobia!  Don’t worry, I’m not cursing you out – it just means a fear of Friday the 13th.  This word is a combination of the Greek words paraskeví (“Friday”) and dekatreís (“thirteen”).  Triskaidekaphobia  is the fear of the number 13.  To help honor this “frightful” day, Edgar, my handsome “fur baby”, allowed me to take a couple of photos of him.

What better day to wear my new, black cat earrings than Friday the 13th?  Here’s what I’m wearing today:

That’s it for now, lovelies.  This is the only time Friday the 13th will happen this year, so I’ll leave you with a poem titled, “Friday the Thirteenth” by poet, Brian Bilston.  Happy Friday the 13th!

Love & Shimmies,

Dasia Denise

FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH

For Keith,

Friday the Thirteenth

held no fear.

He wasn’t superstitious

(or even a little bit stitious)

and didn’t view the day

as particularly suspicious

or with the promise

of the unpropitious.

 

It was then a black cat

crossed his path,

causing him to stop on a crack

which made him stagger

under a ladder,

and shatter a mirror

being carried

by a passing albatross,

who suffered fatal blood loss

from a shard

which flew hard

into its heart.

 

Keith didn’t think anything of it

until later that day,

at a wine reception,

he found himself trapped

in a conversation

about Jeremy Clarkson.
