Keep Your Fingers Crossed...

Post by Tachyon » Tue Aug 24, 2004 2:40 pm

By 5pm today my wife and I will know if ours was the winning bid for a home near my office.

I mention this because if I have a house to live in (rather than a little apartment) there will be room for my books and computer right where I live. That should translate to more frequent updates.

Yow!

yeah, but we should cross out fingers for things other than updates. I mean, your life is more important than updates. I wish you and your family the best of luck on that bid.

You'll get it!

I knew you'd get the house! I should open up a fortune telling shop. I seem to always predict the future accurately, including political elections.

Trust me, I'd cry too. It's going to be Kerry. That just the way it'll be. The universe's cosmic power will be unbalanced and doomed to end if Bush wins.

(Sorry about bringing up politics on a neutral board)

Mmh, so in english you knock on wood ? Hehe, it's always interesting to see some equivalents for the expressions, cuz' it's usually hard to find while it's quite useful to give tone to a message without using dozens of smileys.
FYI, in french we just "touch the wood" :wink:

Ah well congrats for your house Tachyon^^

Whoa... that's just... whoa.

You touch the wood? I tried doing that just now, and I feel so incomplete. Maybe you feel the same way when you knock on the wood.

Interesting. What other expressions do you have? (maybe this should be a new topic)
