    OK, now I'd go see them drop a giant fish before I'd go see them drop a giant ball.

    Veejer usually posts about this on New Years.

    Hope you are feeling better, Bunny!

    Here is something I found on Snopes about New Year's superstitions:

    snopes.com: New Year's Superstitions

    For some reason, I can't copy and paste from the snopes site!

    Snopes doesn't allow it that's why. You have to link back to their site.

    Thanks MamaC. Today was a little better than yesterday as I can actually eat a little something. I am trying to think positively so as not to take this as a sign of the year to come....knock on wood.

    I wish I had seen that list of superstions sooner because as it stands now we violated just about every one of them; I was even too sick to make the pork and lentil soup I had planned.
