From my writings at Fetlife:
You’re probably wondering what that means…”Triskaidekaphobia”? Big word to be sure…hey, they don’t call me “Tolstoy” for nothing; even my fears have big, long definitions…lol.
Here’s what Wikipedia says: Triskaidekaphobia (from Greek tris meaning “3,” kai meaning “and,” and deka meaning “10”) is fear of the number 13; it is a superstition and related to a specific fear of Friday the 13th, called paraskevidekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia.
Yup…I don’t like 13’s too much. If I even have something close to a 13, like 87 cents (13 away from a dollar), I’ll discard a penny just to stay away from it. It’s a funny and odd fear and has caused me many a laugh…but I still have it to some degree.
So…the other day when Stacie Snow was shooting with another producer and I was there acting as an assistant, she and I set up her and my next one. Once we were finished setting the time and date, she made me aware of two very frightning facts:
We’re set to work again April THIRTEENTH…for our THIRTEENTH shoot together. That’s TWO thirteens at the same time here, people!!! Yeesh.
I didn’t tell her at the time, but I felt a chill go down my back when she said that. It rapidly passed, due to the fact that Stacie and I are set to go on what will be yet another successful shoot. Still…I have to wonder…what the heck’s gonna happen?!
Will it be like the first custom video I shot…the camera kept malfunctioning to the point I wasn’t even sure I could complete the thing? Will all the planets align and cause cosmic chaos throught the world…no, wait, that’s 2012, right? 😉 Will my camera explode while I’m holding it? Come to think of it, that happens regularly; every time I shoot with Stacie, the camera explodes from the great imagery that we create together. Will I read too much into this and create a subconcious situation?
The last one sounds plausable. 😉
Reading too much into this yet again, I know…but I still have to wonder. Wish me luck and great pics….oh, and it’s gonna be the “all fetish” shoot with Stacie in leather and such. Should be fun!!!
