Synchronicity

I've just finished reading one of Ian Rankin's 'Rebus' crime novels. In the book there's mention of a newspaper headline pinned to the wall of a journalist's office. It said 'Super Caley Go Ballistic, Celtic Were Atrocious', and referred to the result of a football match. It didn't occur to me that it might have been a genuine headline.
Last night, an upcoming match between Caledonian Thistle and Celtic was mentioned, and I told Chris about the bit in the book. Today, we turned on the news to see a report of the match in which that headline was quoted. Now, I'm not that surprised to find out that it's a real headline, more that I had never heard of it before, then came across it twice in a couple of days.
Ok, it might not be interesting for most of you reading this, but I love it when things like this happen.

Oh, and here's another quote from the same book which made me fall about laughing...

'...in a voice which, had it been any more of an undertone, would have leapt up and broken into the chorus of 'Teenage Kicks'.

Ooh, isn't that odd? Especially considering the chances of those two teams playing each other within days of you reading that book...

I must really give those Rebus books a shot.

oh, I don't think it's strange at all, I'm a big fan of synchronicity. Just don't try too hard to find meaning in it, or you'll break your brain like I have.
