Remember way back when
I was so thrilled that the Magic Hands! Juju Fairy had visited me?
That was a long time ago. My luck had been good, not outstanding, since coming to my new job: totally fine with me. It's best that the Powers Controlling Luck are largely unaware of your presence, and do not generally interfere one way or another.
This week, and today in particular, has been the reverse
of a visit from the Magic Hands! Juju Fairy - sort of like if someone ate all the luck, digested all the lucky bits, and then crapped out the undigestable garbage all over my experiments. Things failed for mysterious reasons; equipment malfunctioned and ate my samples; positive controls changed their positive disposition.
I am quite happy it's Friday, and will be sacrificing some liver cells to the Powers Controlling Luck tonight to see if that helps.
