Earlier today, I found a penny, picked it up, and for the rest of the day I had good luck.

You guys in the states must be real unlucky, because you have cents, but do you have magpies there? Seeing a single magpie is bad luck, and I see them too much. I guess having no magpies in the states would even things out.

For what it's worth, the one cent coin is commonly referred to as a penny here in the States, but stopping to pick it up is more likely to throw your back out than yield good fortune.

True, because all of us Americans have to lug around that extra 200 pounds that strangely appears on your gut when you enter the country.

You notice how fat people always buy a diet coke with their two cheeseburgers and large fries?

Actually, yes I have noticed that. It's an endless source of amusement.

I like laughing at other people's expense. It gives me a warm feeling inside.

My cat is dreaming and it is like peddling its paws in its sleep

It is dreaming of cycling.

I hear the airlines are planning on taxing you for that service when you enter the country.

Magpies:
One for sorrow
Two for joy
Three for a girl
Four for a boy
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret never to be told

They arn't the scary ones, they mainly stay down in the laundry. Its the hunstmen that are scary, bigger than my outstreched palm and they sneak up on you when your sleeping.
