UPDATE: What’s written “In honor of Chinese New Year” was written at approximately 11:49.
11:50- Clamored to the bathroom to wash my face seeing as it was supposed bad luck to clean/wash anything after midnight. Gotcha.
11:55, back in bed…time to finish up the post.
11:58, remembered that I had read that you are supposed to open all windows and doors to let the evil spirits of the past year out at midnight.
12:00 strikes, I try to open my window, somehow my money tree which is on the table below my windowsill decides to fall off and the pot breaks. Good going, Candace (that’s what I’m called when I’m in trouble, as you’ve noticed I never reference myself by the full first name.) Oh did I forget to mention that the window didn’t open? Nope, and I was forced to clean up the mess. Blah, blah, blah. I had to laugh though, of all things to happen and right at midnight…I mean within seconds. I think I’m going to take back the money in the envelopes…I have to buy a new pot!
In honor of Chinese New Year, I have posted some unique items in the color promised to bring good luck this year of the Ox, red.
PS….Don’t clean, wash your hair, or use a knife or scissors today. Either I’ve lost it, or I’m going to have a plethora of luck this year. Oh yeah, don’t do any lending today or you will be lending the entire year….which doesn’t make sense seeing as they state you should put a crisp one dollar bill in a red envelope for your loved ones? I think Stevie Wonder wrote Superstition for me. When you believe in things that you don’t understand…………..
In honor of my new homegirl, Whitney:
