erm, what day is it today. . .

da da daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah* (*musicy type noise made with a kind of sinister undertone)
on the other hand, we could just have a laugh. . .and smile at the expense of those who suffer at least once if not thrice a year from paraskevidekatriaphobia; the word is derived from the concatenation** of the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή) (meaning Friday), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς) (thirteen), attached to phobía (φοβία) (fear); the term triskaidekaphobia derives from the Greek words tris (three), kai (and), and deka (ten) (the whole word means three and ten). . .
so there you have it!
(**don't ask me what this means, I haven't a clue)

Oh I thought that was going to be Beethoven's - er - 5th? But there weren't enough da's.

That's the most stunning word I've seen for a long time.
