Thursday 13: You Will Be Jealous Of These

Welcome to my inaugural Thursday Thirteen post.

Here's the scoop.  December is mildly special this year.  It features two Thursdays that both happen to coincide with my regularly scheduled posts each month. (That actually happens in March and next November, but whatever.)

Anyway, things aren't going to change drastically.  I will still post about writing and the Rubik's Cube as usual on the 1st and the 15th.  But also look for new Thursday Thirteen posts during any week without a 1st or a 15th in it.

It will officially work this way January 2012, for December, I'm giving you a sneak preview.

What is Thursday Thirteen anyway?

Thursday Thirteen is simple.  Every Thursday bloggers post a list of thirteen things tied to a theme or subject of their liking.  It can be anything.  Really, anything.  It's fun, you should try it.

I can't simply kick things off with a boring bulleted list, so I compiled some pretty pictures for you to enjoy.

Thank you to jeh182 on Flickr for the photo of the unlucky elevator.


  1. Oooh, I love this post. And I'm pretty sure I do NOT own thirteen stranger items than these.

    I do, however, own a fertility statue from Ghana. I'd be happy to pass it along to you for you budding collection of fertility statues from all over the world. :) My statue wouldn't even require a censorship bar.

  2. Ha! I'd hate to sound creepy asking to see your fertility statue. But I can't believe you have one too! Funny.

  3. Cool post idea! You actually own all 13 of these items? Some strange stuff, my friend. :) I don't think I can top your collection.

  4. Guilty as charged. :-) Thanks for humoring me. Everyone loves lists, don't they?

  5. Catching up on my reading. Love these. You're so eclectic.

  6. Mary, 'random' could be another word to describe me ;-) Thanks for the comments.
