[info]mip -- blow jobs

[info]mip -- yes
[info]marciamarcia -- No
[info]burn_in_heaven_ -- no.

6) James thinks yogurt is guaranteed to make your nails and hair nice. I think that glue and spit have very similar properties. Both of these are true, to an extent. What are your folk beliefs? Do you knock on wood, do you prefer to pet animals with your left hand, do you sniff a certain scent while studying? I want to know something you hold dear, even though you know it's not all that true, real, or useful.
[info]eutheria -- ...
[info]banshee -- I knock wood, say 'rabbit rabbit rabbit' on the 1st of the month...
[info]doraphilia -- blessing the car when I run a yellow light (kissing my hand and tapping the ceiling)
[info]mip -- if you relish in anything, it will be taken away.
[info]marciamarcia -- I touch the roof of my car when going through yellow lights. Sometimes, I also say "zoom".
[info]burn_in_heaven_ -- wishing at 11:11?
[info]thespunmonkey -- spit is very useful. yogurt IS a superfood. my son and i must start our day with a 'good morning sun dance' (sun salutation) or all hell breaks loose.
[info]sandwhichestime -- I take a deep breath and blow it out my mouth veeeeeery slowly when I'm stressed. that's about it.
[info]jeney -- n/a
[info]onlyifyousnoop -- Hmmmm... I put saliva (my own) on cuts (my own). I think it has antibacterial qualities.
[info]msanborn -- I still believen in love; does that count?
[info]dryad271 -- I knock on wood sometimes. And I hex cars for safety on long or grueling commutes.
[info]introducingyael -- I have a ton of Jewish ones, like I say "kinehura" whenever I talk about Moo and Chas V'Shalom whenever I hear anything remotely bad, even if it's dumb. Like Hubby - "What if professor chaos really did flood the world?" Me "Chas VShalom!"
[info]girlreinvented -- I believe only in raw milk, fish oil and unflavored gelatin. Knocking on wood has gotten me nowhere. Petting animals has gotten me nowhere. I do like to burn essential oils, but they've gotten me nowhere, either.
[info]tikifreak -- I wash my hair with warm water and rinse it with cold water.
[info]literfairy -- I like to count out my steps in sets of 4 or 8 (thanks to 10 years of dance)
[info]joannarain -- if i have to go back inside after leaving a place (like if i forget something and have to go back in for it), i usually pay a visit, which means sitting down in a chair, and if i am at my parents' house, saying something resembling a conversation.
[info]beagle1 -- who ever opens the pocket knife has to be the one to close it or it is bad luck
[info]oreofuchi -- astrology
[info]golfshirt6 -- I always leave a bite of food on my plate for the holy ghost. It's not religious, its just superstisous.
[info]_recoil -- i fart in your cereal when you're not looking.
[info]alwaysregal -- I had yogurt :-P left shoe on first, left foot steps in first. and I wish on 11:11s and railroad tracks and kiss my hand/hold it to the ceiling when I haul ass through a yellow light

Let me add to this very important survey that I didn't know a glove box (in the car) was considered that until very late in life. Growing up, we always called it a "jockey box." I have no idea why.
