Friday the Thirteenth

Yet another Friday the Thirteenth is here, the first once since May 13, 2005. I’ve always wondered why Friday the 13th is considered a day of misfortune, just as I’ve wondered why builders label the 13 floor of a building as the “14th” floor (as if anyone is really fooled by this). Wikipedia has a pretty good article on the origins of Friday the 13th.

I’m waiting for the taxi to pick me up and take me to Union Station so I can catch my 11:30 AM train up to Albany. With an hour layover in NYC, I’m scheduled to arrive in Albany at about 6:30 this evening.
