Life Under Ladders

Sep 14

I’ve got four new backgrounds up, all in autumn colors.
Also one new wallpaper, this time illustrating some famous superstitions.

I was not a superstitious child. At age seven I intentionally walked under a ladder two times (14 years of bad luck) just to prove to myself that luck was not controlled by forces as arbitrary as construction equipment. Many years later I thought about that day, and figured that if I really did receive 14 years of bad luck then very soon the spell would expire. Somehow, magically, my life would improve in every way without this ‘ladder curse’ weighing me down.
The next day when I came home from school there was an abandoned ladder positioned directly over the only door to my apartment. Seems I’ve got seven more years of bad luck ahead, and I’m destined to live my life under ladders.

    Sarah, you are the cats maaaow. Not the maaaow that occurs when a feline is taken to the vet, but more so a maaaow that is induced post-cat nip and full of glee. I should also mention that it’s not the maaaow that occurs when a feline is in heat, because that would just be creepy. Just a kindred, subtle, excited, and happy maaow.
