    So, today's the day when everything happens. Where and how did luck fail you today?

    As for myself, I dropped a TV 7 feet onto a concrete floor. No, it didn't survive. Good thing it's government property - I'm sure they can afford spending $400 on a new one.

    I also sliced up my index finger between a big-ass heavy-as-hell crate I carried in my arms and the edges of a radiator. Not badly hurt, but it bled quite a lot.

    Only five more hours till midnight - I keep my fingers crossed that nothing else happens...

    Nothing has happened to me, of course, I have yet to go to work today. I doubt much will happen though, Friday nights are notoriously slow. (All the good thieves are out partying.)

    Today is my mom's birthday, though. Hopefully nothing but good things happen to her.
  3. Ouch! Sorry to hear that Oysterman.

    So far my luck hasn't been bad. I was walking over to one of our three buildings and as I was walking up to the door, someone else was coming out and the door hinge simply came off. These are 8 foot glass doors too. Glass shrapnel would have gone everywhere, but luckily the guy caught it before it fell.

    Maybe that's a sign. :(

    today has been pretty good for me. i just got a call from a pretty big local band saying that i got the job. WOO-HOO!!! i've had 4 auditions with them in the last month and got a call today with the good news. so no complaints so far today.
  5. I don't know what you're talking about. It's a beautiful day, I got a new bass (Shameless plug :D) and I'm going to a party later. Bad luck, smad luck. :)

    hey phreaky.. yeah good idea..
    the only thing ill use on my bass is modulation.. there is a 7 string wah so maybe i can get a little bit of the right frequency out of it..
    maybe the wahs will work..
    i have an acoustic-electric washburn... that im in the process of putting a new pickup in.. *grin*
    so i have a guitar and i play regular guitar just fine.. so i think im gonna keep it..
    friday the 13th aint bad though.. i had my 6 weeks test in biology.. and i made a 95! ...last year i failed biology with 40s and 30s the whole year.. =X

    LOL my 13th birthday was on a Friday 13th LOL
  10. That means it wasn't only your Golden Birthdat but also your Unlucky birthday, too.

    School was fine for me. Except for projects and papers, but that doesn't count. Well I did just get a weird rash on my leg. I have to get driven 120 miles to a Boy Scout ranch and work all day tomorrow. I should get there late tonight, so who knows. I also have to mow the lawn before I leave.:rolleyes:

    Nothing bad has ever happaned to me on a Friday 13th. I consider it my lucky day in fact. I just found an unopened bottle of Ruddles County in my fridge - how lucky can you get? I rest my case! :)

    The only thing that has ever happened to me on a Friday the 13th was a Quantum Mechanics exam.

    Needless to say, I am now a believer. :eek:

    'Cause it's when Jason decides to kill a bunch of horny campers :D I love Friday the 13ths. 13 is my favorite number (bday is the 13th), and when I was a kid, the USA network always had a Friday the 13th marathon on Friday the 13ths, which is one of my favorite bad horror movie series. I haven't watched tv in years though, so I don't know if they still play them or not.

    Maybe you can quietly exchange it... Do you know where it was purchased?

    Nothing happened to me, and I was even carting a bass amp on top a a piano down a hill. :D
  18. No prblems for me today. Better-than-average sales, had lunch with my fiancee, had no rude customers, and the night was very peaceful and beautiful.

    And now, after I'm finished with this, I'm going to bed. Lots of rest, I have to be at work at 6.:eek::mad:

    Rock on

    Well.. update on our situation
    I found the recipt..
    The thing is.. Im really happy with my bass tone..
    Yamaha Rbx..alder body... and ive updated the pickups to seymore duncans..
    =D and im updating the bridge sometime in the next year..
    well ...he payed 320.99 for the gt-6..
    This is the third year my dads messed up my birthday and i feel real bad cause i love my dad and hes the coolest dude ya know.. its just people like to take advantage of his lack of guitar and bass knowledge.. i can tell because he gets soooo frustrated when i talk to him about bass'.. because he doesn't speak my language.. he plays his hammond.. he knows theory out the ass.. but..
    He doesn't know about.. woods and pickups and all that mess.

    So instead of taking it back.. and getting the gt-6b for a hundred more..
    Im gonna sell my acoustic/electric and then put that with my money i have saved up .. (60).. and then get him to help me buy(like pitch in 50 bucks or so)... and help me get the telecaster i really have gas for down at mars.. it plays like a dream...
    yes it is a squier fat tele.. and it plays better than any MIA telecaster in that store!
