Folks out there who know me well know that I tend to follow some old Irish superstitions that were taught to me at a very young age. Despite what I like to think is my somewhat above-average intelligence, I still tend to follow quite a few of them. For example...

Today is the Ides of March, and I was told that using knives or blades of any kind on this day would bring about very bad luck. Therefore, I don't shave on March 15, I try not to use scissors or the paper cutter at work, and I have to plan my meals accordingly, making sure I won't need even a butter knife.

Someone out there humor me; has anyone else heard of this superstition before? It is super-easy to figure out its origins, of course; Julius Caesar became well-acquainted with several blades on this day. I did a quick search on teh intarwebs and couldn't find a single reference to the blades superstition; I just found that the day is considered generally unlucky.

Oh, well. I was gonna cook up a frozen pizza for dinner tonight. Now I gotta figure out how to slice it with a fork.

I remember cutting my lips on those plastic spoons. You are right, they are honed down to razor sharpness. And cuts on your lips seem to last forever--not to mention you can't eat anything acidic, hot, or with salt in it. Which leaves just about nothing.

Be like a wolf! Rip and chew and then wash up the mess afterwards!

Gotta get me a dragon to cook it first!

I can honestly say I've never heard such a thing before, but as superstitions go, it's one of the more interesting ones.

Heh, as it turns out, I've been avoiding blades m'self today, quite by accident--even when I had to cut some yarn to bind off a project, I just bit it off because I was too lazy to bend down to my bag to get my scissors. Now I'm going to be thinking about this all day, and it may change what I have for dinner. :)

I suggest burgers & fries. Nice, knife-free foodage. o(:o)

Ended up being pot pies. A fork can handle those. Unless you way over- or undercook 'em.

Here's how I prepare pot pies:

1. Open pot pie box.
2. Remove pot pie from box.
3. Throw away pot pie box.
4. Throw away pot pie.
5. Order Chinese.

o(:o)

Interesting. Considering that I'm applying for several positions right now, I'll avoid knives and other cutting implements. I'm not superstitious, but right now I could use all the luck! :)

I'll keep my pawfingers crossed for ya.

I love the icon, BTW. Erin go brokken! o(:o)

Huh. If thats the case, i'm screwed. I had to redo the knife display at work, and ontop of that, I was using my own knife most of the day to open boxes.

Well, after all, it is just a superstition. o(:o)
