Friday 5 - Lucky

Thanks go out to Friday 5 for this fun end of the week meme :-)

1. Among people you know, who seems to be lucky in love? My circle is distressingly short of people whom I'd consider truly lucky in love. I'm going to say, though, that so far my oldest son and his girl are doing pretty darn well. They're a pleasure to be around and that says a lot about their relationship I think.

2. Among people you know, who seems to be lucky with money? Again, a bit of a shortage in this field. Maybe since we're talking about luck and not hard work, I would go with my friend The Activist and his inheritance that allows him to do his thing.

3. Among people you know, who’s lucky to be alive? Definitely WTG. Two years ago, when he was so ill, there was every chance that he wouldn't make it...but he did. And really, it was luck.

4. Among people you know, who seems to have the worst luck? Hm. Bad luck plagues everyone from time to time...who is consistantly unlucky? The person who comes to mind is my co-worker, The Drifter. She is a good person, but yeah, does seem unlucky in many ways.

5. What kinds of good-luck charms do you own or carry?
I don't have a genuine good luck charm. Probably because I lose things like that. I do like tucking happy fortune cookie fortunes into my wallet. That kind of makes me feel lucky, silly as it is.

I'd love to hear about your lucky stuff too!

I'm unlucky in love and my job. I am, however pretty lucky in money (not to brag or anything).

Ella: Thanks for stopping in. Come back anytime :-)

AlienCG: There is lots to be said for being lucky in money! And it isn't bragging if it is luck, right?

Okay now I have two memes I need to do, because I like the one you did and there is another one too. I'd better get crackin!

Is that a photo of the activist you speak of?

laura b. said...

Tara: More, more, more memes! Yes, that is The (actual) Activist :-)

Interesting meme. I know a lot of people who are lucky in love...I'm just not one of them. My brother has a ton of money. I wouldn't say he's lucky so much, as frugal and sort of obsessed. He's a financial analyst.

Churlita: I was really trying hard to suss out luck from hard work...they aren't the same, but sometimes you get the same results :-)
