one of those .... lives

have you ever had one of those weeks where you have to work, like, 300 hours? including the weekend? and your laptop stops working and appears on the verge of crossing over? and someone sideswipes your beloved car and knocks off the other sideview mirror? then your beloved car has a terrible time starting, leading you to believe that either the battery is dying or it, too, is crossing over?

i'm telling you, people, i have seriously bad luck every few months. and there ain't nothing i can do about it.

(so please send me, and my laptop and my car, good vibes. maybe then i'll get to show you the progress on the emma jacket!!)

Sorry to hear about your bad luck, I'm sorry I couldn't help out with a computer doctor. I'm sending positive vibes for your car and computer, and (most importantly) to you, for your luck to change.

Dude, maybe it's a Carrie curse, because I have the same cycle - every few months, the shit hits the fan and bad things happen.

I'm sending you all my good luck vibes and happy thoughts -- I hope your black cloud goes away soon.

OH MAN! The other mirror too? And the laptop! (shakes fist at the gods!)

Be careful crossing streets, you know what they say about 3s. (I don't know why I just wrote that because I hate when people say that to me.)

hugs!

Maybe go hugs some nice yarn to make yourself feel better?

Oh no!!! If anyone is deserving of some good vibes, it's you (and the car and the laptop). I'm sending a bunch over to you all. Hang in there!

Good vibes are being emanated in your direction!

BTW, car batteries are cheap, and they're not hard to install. You might as well replace it before it conks out. It's one less thing to worry about.

bleh! let me at that person who hurt your lil car, lemme at 'em! computer stuff is so frustrating, too. chris has been preparing to teach this morning's class on kant for like a week and a half, and was really nervous about it, and he went to print his lecture notes last night and his computer would simply not turn on. nope, just wouldn't.

you have a pc, right?

Oh, yes. The bad luck. It strikes me often. Just yesterday, in fact. A frogged sweater and a failure to turn in the proper paperwork on deadline to take some HUGE exams I needed to take this spring (to qualify for my PhD). Oh, yes. I definitely understand what you're talking about. I'd send you some MAJOR luck, but, well... I'm running a wee bit low on that myself these days.

I happily commiserate with you.

good vibes! good vibes! good vibes! do you feel me sending these good vibes your way? :) cheer up, it happens sometimes. i think bad luck comes in threes, so perhaps yours is over now for a while...

I'm definitely trying to send those vibes your way - hopefully this chain of bad luck is a precursor to a string of good luck?

I am sending happy karma your way, hoping it might do some good.

Does the GOOD luck comes in waves like this too? I sure hope so!

Yep, that describes my last two years. I'm almost afraid to send you vibes, because I think I'm cursed...but I do hope things turn around soon.

And yarn buying definitely helps.

Oh no! What a bad week you are having. Here's hoping you get a follow up of Good Luck!
But hey, at least you aren't one of those little ones left to navigate the city on a bus! What are people thinking about??

I think you need to move back to Pennsylvania - there is no bad JUJU here. Only snow. And your mom would be happy.

Step one: Put way too much ice cream in a bowl.
Step two: Pour massive amounts of Baileys over said ice cream.
Step three: Repeat if necessary.

Sending good vibes your way, hon.
