2.22




People always ask why I have 222 tattooed in between my fingers, well today is 2.22, so I figured it was a good day to share.
Shaun and I used to see "222" everywhere, and something strange would usually always happen shortly after. Once we were at Hellfest on the east coast, my ex broke his hand and had to be rushed to the hospital, the whole day I had been seeing 222 everywhere. The first thing I saw when we entered the emergency room were these huge posters with random 222's all over. He finally get's a room, and his room number, 6222. Coincidence? Maybe.

Are you superstitious?

xo.

I think there might be something about those "twos" because I often check the clock when it's 22:22 :)

my friend goes through this all the time but it is with the number 13. Her parking number at school is 13, when she looks at the clock it is always something 13, etc. we always get a good laugh in about it.

kirkland said...

I have the same weirdness but with the number 8 and 18. Totally weirds me out.

Lisa said...

Interesting, I think everybody has a number(s) that mean something to them. I like 9 and multiples of 9. I always set my alarm so I wake up when all the numbers add up to 9 (ex: 6:03). I also realized (after I picked it) that my wedding day adds up to 9. Crazy.

I know it's off topic but I just wanted to say I find you and your work to be very inspiring. Once you get your license maybe I'll make my way out to Oregon for a tattoo!

dk said...

Interesting... so are you warding off future bad luck?

And mine is 13. It's lucky- its my and my mom's birthday. And mine was Friday the 13th when I was born!

I am totally superstitious-ish with numbers.
19 is my lucky number, I was born on January 19, 1989, turned 10 in 1999, something good ALWAYS ends up happening to me on the 19th of every month. And on Deal or No Deal, there is always a ton of money in case 19 :]

I turned 21 in 2010, remove the zeros and what do you get? 21. How cool is that? haha.

Laura said...

I see 1228 everywhere. so I take it as they are my special numbers!...as silly as that sounds. Almost everyday when I look at the clock it says 12:28. there has to be some weird cosmic connection somewhere right? :)

Jenn said...

i see 1111 everywhere...we had several apt#'s that were 1111..everytime i look at the clock at night it is 11:11...maybe something extra special will happen to me on that date, time, whatever:)

PetaLa said...

I'm from Sydney and we're heading to the states in October, and i was just trying to convince my other half to change plans and make a detour to Oregon to get tattooed by you....But i dont think we have enough time :(

Iz said...

Svarer på norsk jeg ;)
Fant bloggen din gjennom Christine (gun hip, swollen lip) for en stund siden og digger den! Du har så mye kult å vise frem! Portrettet av cowboyen under her f eks? Fantastisk! Hva skulle du hatt for å lage noe tilsvarende og sende det til Norge tro? ;)

Og jeg er nok littegrann overtroisk, men kommer ikke på noe spesielt akkurat nå... Du har sett den filmen med Jim Carrey der han ser tall overalt? (var det 333 eller noe?) Den levde jeg meg skikkelig inn i! Super creapy om man tenker over det i hverdagen ja ;)

Ønsker deg en fantastisk dag! Skulle ønske jeg kunne gå i parken og se GRESS!! Her er det snø så langt øyet kan se :S *klem idun*

oh I totally understand! My numbers are 5 1 7 . I see them all the time. This is the story behind it though -- my Dad was sick for quite a long time and knew that he was dying. He promised me several times that he would let me know that he was there for me. You know, in heaven, the great beyond, whatever, after he passed. He knew it wouldn't be easy and that he probably wouldn't be able to just pick up the phone or turn my lights off and on to let me know that his spirit was with me.....Since he died I see those numbers everywhere (they are my birthday, 5/17, May 17th). On license plates, on forms, on billboards, phone numbers, when I glance at the clock when I wake in the morning... I just know it's him. I like to think it's him.
I dig the two's on your fingers, now you've got me thinking about a 517 tattoo....

222 follows me also! people never believe me but then I start pointing it out... it doesn't freak me out or anything, I don't know what it means, if it means anything. My mom thought I was making it up until I was pumping gas Christmas eve with her and it stopped at 22.22, and when we got in the car it was 12:22, and she was writing my boyfriends address down for me and his house number is 222... then when we got home and opened gifts she bought me huge mixing bowls... and on the bottom was 222 on all three of them.
she believes me now, haha.
anyway... crazy schtuff maaan

Ponychick said...

Crazy! I see 2:22 3:33 4:44 all different numbers but always in sequence of 3... Been doing it for years!! 333 stands out the most but haven't noticed anything related to it... I see it daily very seldom does it not happen in a day! :):):)

Becky said...

So crazy! Yes I am a bit superstitious, I wouldn't walk under a ladder - nope! I used to have a weird number thing with 5's and nickels!

floene said...

I also see 22:22 everywhere, that's very often the case when I check the clock in the evening. 22:22 has followed me for about five years now :D Or maybe I'm following it. Nothing strange usually happens, though.
