Freaky Friday

Angie Luck, Superstitions 0 Comments

Dear Universe, A couple of weeks ago I was talking to someone about making plans to celebrate a new opportunity when he said, “Well, we can’t do it then because it’s Friday the 13th.  That’s bad luck.”  I immediately agreed!  Of course we wouldn’t go out to toast on Friday the 13th.  That’s just asking for trouble. But that got …

Blast From the Past

Dear Universe, Apparently I am not the only one who thinks of the future and one’s future self. When I heard about the latest youtube sensation, I was intrigued.  Apparently in 1992, twelve-year-old Jeremiah McDonald made a video of himself talking to his future self.  Now, twenty years later, McDonald decides to have a little conversation with his past self …

Spontaneous Spurt

“No matter how many plans you make or how much in control you are, life is always winging it.” ~Carroll Bryant Dear Universe, I’m not exactly the most spontaneous person.  I’m not exactly the most rigid, stick-to-my-schedule-need-a-plan-at-all-times person either.  I’m a tweeny; I land somewhere between those two. Through the years, I’ve realized the desire to jump up and do …

“A kiss can be a comma, a question mark, or an exclamation point…” ~Mistinguett Dear Universe, I’ve heard of Arbor Day, Flag Day, National Twinkie Day and even Penguin Awareness Day. But every now and then I hear of a random holiday I never knew existed.  That’s what happened yesterday. I was on Twitter when I noticed “National Kissing Day” …

Keep Your Love Locked Down

Dear Universe, Once again, I just love when one of my guilty pleasure shows inspires me. http://universeletters.com/2012/01/20/leap-list/ This time it wasn’t The Bachelor, but its equally tantalizing counterpart, The Bachelorette. I am particularly engrossed in this season of The Bachelorette and it isn’t Emily’s southern sweetness and honey drawl that’s luring me in.  It’s that underneath that Barbie-like exterior, Emily …

Happy Fourth!

Dear Universe, Since I enjoy the summer and get togethers with loved ones, it’s no surprise that I look forward to July 4th.  It’s the perfect day for carnivals, cookouts, pool parties, beach gatherings, boat excursions and firework displays.  Yes, I’ve done all those things on the fourth, but not on the same day, of course! Some of my favorite …

“There’s nothing like looking at your own history in the faces of your friends.” ~Ani Difranco  Dear Universe, I’ve been thinking a lot about history.  Not world history.  But the history between people. It’s been on my mind for various reasons, but it came up in conversation the other night.  I was having dinner with one of my closest and …
