Is 13 an unlucky number?
Some say yes, but having been born on 13th February in the fast fading past, I’d have to disagree.
But that’s not why I ask. No, it’s the significance of the date.
I opened this blog 13 years ago today.
There may be some confusion about this, but it’s probably something to do with the International dateline.
Whatever, since then, I’ve posted something here, albeit originally on Blogger, nigh on 2,500 times, adapted a book about Jakarta – twice, edited four others, proofread theses, magazine articles, company docs et al, been interviewed by local and international media, and been criticised by silly asses who don’t know that ‘ass’ in British English does not mean rump, buttocks, bum or bottom.
