day 8: the thirteenth

The number 13 has always, perversely, been lucky for me. I was born on the 13th and I always seem to well in anything which seems to have that number in it. Perhaps it’s because, like the 13th man at the Last Supper, I’ve betrayed Jesus by not really taking him very seriously any more; and the number 13 is temporarily on my side, but only while I go en route to eternal damnation in the fires of hell.

Anyway, Friday the 13th was a pretty great day. My friends Ross and Anneliese are staying with me in the Maison Flashback and I woke up to find that Anneliese had made a pretty hefty dent in the pile of washing up that was starting to build.

After that we spent a very pleasant afternoon just wandering around the city; it was the first day when we haven’t done flashback work in the afternoon and I appreciated the first chance to actually have a rest in the day before I had to start flyering. I stopped into a cafe to use their internet (and found myself sitting at Table 13); they accidentally brought me a large cappuccino instead of the small one I ordered and didn’t charge me the extra. There are few surer signs of a lucky day than this.

And then the gigs were fantastic. The showcase was great, I was really pleased with my compering, Rik had a cracker and Nick Sun headlined beautifully – there was even a reviewer in who said he enjoyed the show – and then the Flashback show was the best yet.


Actually, with the exception of the phone thing, this whole week has been ridiculously lucky…

Showcase – Audience: nearly full; Performance 8/10

Flashback – Even better again…

Overall – LUCKY WIN
