Paraskevidekatriaphobics: 2012 is Not Your Year

Paraskevidekatriaphobics, or people with the irrational, morbid fear of Friday the 13th are probably not very happy this year. Me, I'm not freaked out at all. I think Friday the 13th is kind of cool.

We've got three Friday the 13th's this year, each 13 weeks apart. Cool, huh? It was 1984 when this last happened. I was 13 that year. This year, like that year, is a leap year and that won't happen again until 2040.

My friends Tony and Michael are celebrating each of the Friday the 13th's with a Horror Movie Camp-a-Thon starting at 7:13 p.m. Tonight's selection is Bride of Chucky. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend because I'm having my own Friday the 13th Horror Fest in the form of some awful bug that has caused me to lose 7 pounds since Wednesday. Don't feel bad for me. Popsicles are my new best friend.

In other news, some pretty cool people have birthdays today on Friday the 13th: Orlando Bloom, Patrick Dempsey (aka Dr. McDreamy), Ginger Zee, Horatio Alger, Julia Louis-Dryfus, and Charles Nelson Reilly. Oh, and someone who's very special to me. For those of you celebrating today, here's your birthday horoscope.
