Well, I’ve certainly been slacking off lately. I think last night’s post was the third missed post in two weeks. In some ways I’ve just not had much to say and in others I’ve just been lazy. I’m sorry. I’m working on getting back on track.
In the search for inspiration I’ve been reading a lot of blogs lately. One of the newest I’ve come across is Barking Mad. In one of her recent posts she mentions things that freak her out. One of her items is Jell-O. I too am freaked out by Jell-O. I’m sorry but I don’t like my food to move across my plate. It just freaks me out.
So, inspired by Barking Mad’s Blog I offer you a few things that freak me out.
1. Sports Mascots — When I still worked at the magazine we put on a Toy Test at Deptford Mall. SocceRoo from the Kixx and Phlex from the Phantoms joined us. Phlex swore he needed a dressing room and the guy who played SocceRoo walked by (before he was in costume) and said to me, “Nobody knows this but I’m SocceRoo.” *shudder* He was holding my hand at the time. I maintain that the Phillie Phanatic is only cool on TV. Let’s not even get into the Burger King King or Ronald McDonald. *shudder* (I absolutely refuse to even let my mind wander to thoughts about Furries)
2. Spiders — Creepy, crawly, icky spiders. Once when Chuck and I were first married he had to work in the Princeton office all day on a Saturday. A spider appeared on our vertical blinds. I locked myself in our bedroom until he got home. I’ve since grown up and can kill spiders all on my own but I’m still creeped out by them.
3. Jell-O — I don’t like my food to move and I especially don’t like for it to jiggle. And there’s this little piece of trivia, lime green Jell-O produces the same frequencies as the human brain on an EEG. That’s just wrong on so many levels.
So to wrap up, if you really wanted to freak me out you should probably bring me to a reenactment of the Last Supper with a table full of sports mascots, The Burger King, clowns and the Kia hamsters eating bowls of lime green Jell-O. *laughs* Oh my God I may never sleep again.
So what freaks you out? Clowns? Bugs? Close talkers?
