Death today – Love tomorrow

Friday, February 13th, 2009

Hello again and welcome to another wonderful Friday the 13th!  It’s lunchtime and so far, no one I know has had bad luck or died or anything.  Imagine that.

I’ve always thought it was funny that such an arbitrary day could be seen to be so bad by the superstitious people who live around us.  I grew up thinking the exact opposite as my Mom always said that Friday the 13th was a lucky day.  And I suppose there’s less harm in thinking that than there is about being paranoid all day.  We always joked that this was the day to buy lottery tickets.  I may yet today.

And I was thinking about this thought process and the flow of positive and negative energy.  It stands to reason – to me at least – that if the majority of the people are sure that the day will be bad and create all the negative energy that goes with that then there should be a void, if you will, of positive energy.  So if 10,000 people in the city around me are worried about the day and being negative and creating their own ‘bad luck’ then if I am positive about the day then all that positive energy that’s been abandoned by everyone else may be attracted to me.  That makes perfect sense to me.  What do you think?

To get back to the title of this post though… people consider Friday the 13th to be an unlucky day.  Hollywood has tied this together with a zombie and a hockey mask and racked up one hell of a virtual body count.  So today is seen as pretty darn grim by many.  But tomorrow!  Oh no, the world completely shifts on that crazy socioeconomic axis and we have Valentine’s Day.  The day of ‘Love’ or as much of it as you can afford in these trying times.  Today you fear a superstitious death and tomorrow you can (enjoy/hate/fear/bask in/ignore/spend more on) a superstitious love.

And you have to ask yourself: What would Lincoln do?

Valentine in White

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

Looking for something new to spice up your Valentine’s Day date?  Perhaps an unexpectedly romantic dinner out with malodorous side-effects?  Well then, you are in luck.

On Feburary 14th (Valentine’s Day), select White Castle locations will be providing a candlelit dining experience from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.  You have to buy the food of course, but they will provide the ‘ambiance’.  How romantical is that?

Sadly, it seems that none of the St. Louis, MO White Castle locations are offering this unforgettable experience.  But if you are in a different city, check out the locations at the official site.
