Welcome to Thursday 13!

Thursday Thirteen's been around for many years, so long that its history is buried in the nebulae of the Internet. Is it the oldest meme? We don't know, but we like it!

The idea is simple: write about 13 things, join us, and if you want, visit other blogs and see what their Thursday 13s are about. No rules, no regulations, just fun. Maybe you'll learn something, maybe you won't, but you definitely should join us!


Link up after Today's Fact so we can find you and see your Thursday 13!
