June 13, 2008

Today is Friday the 13th. Luckily, we also had our CPR training at work today, so if any bad luck should cause one of us to stop breathing and suffer cardiac arrest, we're covered. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to stop a machete wielding hockey masked killer.

When I was little, I used to be scared of the Friday the 13th movies. Then the series started getting stupider and stupider, from Jason going to New York, then to outer space, then finally facing off against another horror movie favorite, Freddy Kreuger. (The nightmare on Elm Street movies were way scarier to me. I would be afraid to sleep after seeing one of those.)

What I learned from scary movies:
- When the phone rings, don't answer it.
- Never split up to look for someone who is lost. Why do folks never learn from this?
- People who live in haunted houses are poor. They can never afford to pay their PG&E bills, so their power is always cut off.
- A machete is not as good as an axe, but still better than a knife. Guns are virtually useless when trying to kill any creature.
- Always stay with the good looking girl. She always lives in the end. It doesn't guarantee you will live, but at least you have a better chance than if you stuck with the tough grumpy gun-toting guy. The monsters always likes to kill them first.
