January 13 challenge: Create Your Own Superstitions (and PRIZES!)

the scary fine print
this could be yours!

It's Friday the 13th, a perfect day to make up new superstitions.  Bonus points for convincing someone else they are old ones.  Fake proverbs also encouraged.

"A potato a day keeps the bedbugs away".
"See Prada by noon, it's a bad hair day soon".
"Friend in a Jetta?  You better forget her."

does it go with the sofa?
The weekend's a great time to catch up on the first two weeks of challenges.  Check the sidebar for your prize possibilities.  From a piece of bad art to a random selection from my eclectic book collection-- the possibilities are as varied and frightening as one of my desk drawers.

If one ever experiences the cry of a baby while attending to cutting tile for a floor, something wicked this way comes.
