Have you all seen the trailers for Jim Carreys' new movie, The Number 23? I think it looks great and if my mother in law would ever get her ass home I'd make plans to go see it...

Anyway I was laying in bed lastnight and a commercial for the movie came on and I started thinking about numbers and coincidences and blah blah blah. Here is what I came up with, using 27, my age.

  • I am 27
  • My birthday is 2/07
  • It is year 2007
  • my house number is 207
  • I have a 2 year old and a 7 year old.
  • My four year old's birthday is 4/23, added, thats 27
  • 27 shows up on my Shoppers Optimum card, 2 times
  • The sets of numbers on my health card can be added up to 7, 2, 7,
  • There are 7 letters in my first name
  • If you subtract the number of letters in my middle name from my last name, it becomes a 7 letter word.. that makes my full name, 2 7 letter words.
  • I have been married 7 years, August(8) Sixth. 8+6 = 14. devide by 7= 2
  • I have owned 7 pets, 2 were reptiles
  • Since highschool, I have moved 7 times, but only 2 were houses.
  • I have 2 tattoos that took a total of 7 hours to do
  • It is 2:47, wich is also the age of my kids.
  • I have 2 gnomes that came in the mail 7 days apart
And then I fell asleep.

So the question begs, can I pick any number and do the same thing with it? If so, then it is all coincidence, right? What if it isnt? What if it IS a conspiracy? What if I'm insane? When does 23 come out?

And it's a bad sign that I really want to go put this in drafts untill the 27th, right?

Hmm. I don't know. That is pretty crazy. I'm not sure I could do that with my age. Very impressive that you thought all that up!

Impressive. I bet that took a bunch of time. And I wonder what I can come up with my age. (which happens to be 27 as well...) I used to do number things like that when I was younger. I would pick a number and try to get a license plate to equal it. I got really good. But now... not so much.

How in the world did you come up with all that?? Crazy! And I am older than you??? I totally didn't picture that!! I'm 28.

I'm 28
2 + 8= 10 that's how old my kid is

yeah, that's all I got. LOL. I'm obviously not as brilliant as you!!

I just saw it last night at an early press screening. It was okay. A little too obvious. But still enjoyable.

Impressive, but all that gave me a headache just thinking about it. With the letters in my name (first or last) I'll have to wait until I'm in my 60's...which I could be since I never remember how old I am. (JOKING about the 60's though)

Very cool. I may do the same thing tonight, if I can't sleep. I like playing with numbers in that way. I memorize phone numbers by playing with the numbers like that.

I'm pretty sure numbers will do anything you want them to do if you pet them and say nice things to them.

That's freaky. Can you do something with my birthday? Wait, I just thought of another freaky thing to add to your list...I was born on 7/24/1967!

I want to see 23 also! I will go with you. My husband already said he doesn't want to see Jim Carrey's new movie. (He's skeered.)

There was something about 9/11 that was the same thing. I bet you could do that with LOTS of numbers. But still, too much thinking for me. :)
