Do you feel lucky, punk? DO you?

Oh, my golly! After the hell that was the Year of Death and Destruction (kicked off with Cancerpalooza 2004 and going straight through early 2006), I had hoped that the coming year would bring better luck. But being a slightly superstitious sort, I didn't want to jinx myself.

Now I see that the Chinese New Year this Sunday marks the beginning of Lunar Year 4704, which will be Year of the Dog. This bodes well:
1. I was born in the Year of the Dog, 1970
2. on the 4th
3. 4, 7, and 47 are my lucky numbers! (also 14, but I won't quibble, though I was in seat 14 last night at the ballet! Which was nice)

Still trying not to jinx myself, but I have to say, the day's looking a little brighter!

Yet another reason why I love you, baby!

You should watch Alias then. Every time there's a number in the plot, it's 47. They jumed out the window of the 47th floor, the secret server they had to steal was server 47, the missing page of the Rambaldi document was page 47, the elevator shorted and crashed to a fiery doom after they pressed the button for the 47th floor.... It was cute at first, but now it's like in every episode, so it's no longer exciting.
