    I am not superstitious but in past years I have been a little wary.

    This morning though I didn't even remember that it was Friday the 13th and, quite interestingly, had my first ever 'F13' experience when I've been out and about...

    Some bloke threatened to kill my dog merely because he barked! FFS!

    Anyone else had anything negative happen so far?

    Yes I guess that is a bit frustrating but I am not sure it is spooky.

    Not wishing to be unkind but is it possible that you could not find the contact lens because you could not see properly?

    OIC (pun intended)...

    That's interesting - what colour are your eyes naturally and what colour do the contacts transform them to?

    I'm quite interested as I know someone who is thinking of getting them and also I knew at school a guy who had (naturally) two different coloured eyes - a bit like David Bowie.

    my natural colour is dark brown and the contacts were light grey, exactly this type
    i didnt mind have two different colours but the contrast was huge cos of the dark brown, i had reordered them mhmm

    Oh crap! I've had a similar situation.

    Today has been pretty weird as I've never really experienced anything bad on Friday 13th. So I never really believed in superstitions like this. But today, my power went out in my room since midnight and I struggled to do school work because my laptop was dead and I couldn't charge it. I woke up pretty late today and when I went to have a shower, I realised I've forgotten my towel to dry myself and this was when I was half way of having a shower.

    After that, I had to check my timetable online to see what time was my lecture, but the wifi kept disconnecting and I was nearly late. Spooky stuff tbh...

    If my brother revolting against my parents counts then yeah it hasn't been a good day. Btw is it bad to watch a video of animal's being killed near a vegan?

    Actually, my day has started to get better. Had a pizza night with my housemates where we all just played games and stuff and my electricity is back. So all is good, so far...

    Unfortunately, I get paranoid pretty easily, so now I'm just trying to be careful

    Sorry you have not had a good day - can you elaborate about your brother and your parents?

    Not sure what to say about the video watching tbh - animals have feelings and I am sure many people would not enjoy on any level seeing them killed, with or without the vegan aspect.

    I've had a terrible day, My tube kept getting delayed which meant I was late for our group project meeting, then i went to go see my boyfriend in Liverpool... the trains from London to Liverpool were completely messed up today so instead of having one change like normal I had about 4 and it took me double the time, then I had over an hours wait at my final train station, then nearly dropped my laptop onto the tracks
    Get to my boyfriends and drive to the supermarket, it was like i'd forgotten how to drive (haven't driven in like a month =P), came back from the supermarket and someones taken our parking space

    It can't get much worse right =L

    Games and pizza sounds great - I have had a Pizza Hut gift card burning a (hot chilli pepper) hole in my wallet for 5+ months...

    Only about 45 mins to go - chill, we are all nearly okay...

    Sorry for your awful day so far.

    It could get worse but I truly hope it doesn't for you - just 45 or so mins to go but the great thing is that you are finally with your boyfriend - enjoy that (long awaited) time.

    I got to my lectures on time, found out I have an essay outline due soon, slept, and did a bit of reading for university. Boring, but not bad.

    That's big bad - sorry for your loss - hopefully it will not take too long to get a replacement - good luck with that.
