Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Yup, that’s the term devised by my female coworkers for Hayden Christensen, as he seductively peers out from the cover of this month’s GQ.

It’s cute.

Normally, “Friday” and “the 13th” are a dangerous combination.

Or at least purportedly so. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever had anything unfortunate happen to me on this day/date combo. Still, that’s no reason to let your guard down.

But already, I’ve had two rather good things happen to kick off what’s supposed to be a dreaded day:

- I logged in to my work email to find only two — two! — spams awaiting me from overnight. That’s insane. Even with all the filtering our IT department puts in, I usually am greeted each morning with no less than 10 junk messages (and, typically, more than that).

Maybe the big one-three on the calendar has something to do with it. We already knew criminals were a superstitious, cowardly lot; I guess the former attribute can be applied to spammers, too (maybe the “criminal” part as well).

- To my pleasant surprise, this site is today’s Feedster’s Feed of the Day! I was informed of this by an email from Beverly Parenti, Director of Marketing for Feedster; ironically, I thought it was a scam-spam email before I confirmed the news. Bring on the visitors!

And yes, I am most amused to be getting this honor on the unluckiest of days.

So based on the early going, it’s shaping up to be a pretty good Friday, that “13th” part be damned. I sure could use it.
