Well, the First of May is coming around again and I thought I should bump my own thread.
HAPPY SPRING EVERYONE!

Many years ago, I heard that on May 1st, if you say the phrase out loud, "white rabbit, white rabbit, bring me good luck", you will have one full year of good luck. This needs to be the first words you speak when you wake up on May 1st. I have been doing this consistently for many years and I seem to be a pretty lucky person.

So, on May 1st, when you wake up, say out loud, "WHITE RABBIT, WHITE RABBIT, BRING ME GOOD LUCK".

If anyone else has any info on this, could they post it here? I'm not sure where this started, but it seems to work.

I like the original, but also this cover of "White Rabbit" by Collide.

Just a reminder, if the first thing you say out loud on May 1st is, "WHITE RABBIT, WHITE RABBIT, BRING ME GOOD LUCK", you will have 12 months of good things happen to you.

This really works and you have nothing to lose. You can do it privately and no one has to hear you. Just do it!

Did just that this morning.

And then, as everyone woke up and started emerging from their rooms I yelled at them to say it too.... which they did.


My daughter and I were sitting on the couch when my son came out of his room, and she yelled in glee to him "Oh look! A DOLLAR!!" -- leaning over to pluck up what wasn't there (as incentive to my son to SAY IT, DAMMIT!!!).

Funny thing is, not a minute later, I realized there was not one dollar but two sitting mere inches from where she'd feigned the find.



and so it starts.....

:D

And the gods have blessed us with a second sunny, dry day in a row.... which means we get to at least take the covers off the temp garages and let the grounds underneath dry out abit.

Got the monster doublewide done.... heading off now for the easy-peasy one!

Yes, it's a beautiful day. So, at lunch today, I stopped into Staples to pick up my new Burning Man rubber stamp that I use for tattooing people. It turns out they made it in the wrong size. They are going to do it over, but told me I could keep the wrong one if I wanted it.
This kind of stuff happens nearly every day! Thanks rabbit! :D

WHITE RABBIT ROCKS AGAIN!

Here’s my story for today :

My daughter decided that this summer she wanted a less sedentary job, and ended up getting chosen to do surveillance on the local bicycle path (which traverses the entire province). Her corridor is about a +30km stretch.

This meant she needed a new bike. Her current bike being stupid-heavy with huge knobbly tires, stupidly handpainted and peeling and an allaround rustbucket. (we could fix the last two points… but not much we could do about the first)

So we started looking for a decent 2nd hand bike..

Not much out there that fit in our budget (couldn’t Believe the number of bikes in the $1000`s range!!! USED!!! Apparently Quebeckers like nice bikes)

Well yesterday, the Magic Ad appeared on the local internet sales site: 1 hybrid bike (perfect for cycle path) in good condition. Including a lock, waterbottle and holder, a Louis Garneau helmet, a pair of padded bike shorts and padded cyclist gloves: $150.

So I called immediately and arranged for my husband and daughter to go take a look at it last night.


I was really pleased when they got home to see that they bought it. (one less thing to worry about). Was ASTOUNDED, taking it out of the car at how extremely light it was. I’ve never felt a bike that light before. It was in absolute pristine condition.

I’d never heard of the brand name before --- which hardly mattered. We weren’t interested in the brand. But the weight (as well as the multiple “pedigree statementsâ€

I wanted to try this; I really did. I even put a bit of white fun-fur on top of my alarm clock to help me remember.
But the first words out of my mouth this morning were, "8:27! Holy crap!"

Sigh...

I woke up with bunny ears on. Then talked to my dog. Then I answered my own question for him.
I have never said white rabbit, and consider myself unlucky from birth. I do however enjoy coversations with my dog and look hawt in bunny ears.
