Hehe, I was walking down the sidewalk past a local mime when some crazy guy goes singing and skipping by, the mime says to me,

"And I thought "I" was weird!"

I'm 35 and have no clue what the hell I'm gonna do with my life.

But someone once said, "some of the most interesting 40 year olds you'll ever meet are the ones still trying to figure out what the hell they are gonna do with their life."

So I got That goin for me......which is kinda nice.

Oh yeah, and snakes.

I've never really cared for spiders with teeth, and "Return of the King" only hightened my fear. That old Shelob gave me the heebie geebies.

Getting bitten by a shark. After seeing those photos from the "Creatures of the deep" thread, well, I got lots more to worry about.

I have a substantiated fear of people who think that Thomas Kincaide is "a great artist."

My UNsubstantiated (irrational) fear is of uncurtained windows at night - something being able to see or "get" me. I have frequent nightmares about this; where I"m only safe if I can find a hidden corner where I can't be seen from outside through the windows.

Oddly, I've never been stalked nor have ever illegally grown any illegal substances at home - so I have no idea where this fear comes from.

Is anyone watching "Penn and Teller's Bullshit!" on Showtime?

In the show they debunk popular beliefs and myths using science and expert testimony. In a recent show they covered irrational fears. I think the most outlandish fear they covered was "mad cow" disease. In a nutshell, there have only been a handful of cases worldwide in the last 30 years of the strain that affects humans, and not a shred of evidence that any of the victims got it from eating beef from cattle that had "mad cow". Even if you were to obtain beef from a diseased animal (which is extremely unlikely) you can't get the disease from eating it.

Other shows covered new-age cults (a hilarious episode), beauty treatments, recycling, love, animal rights, and the drug war.

This sounds a lot like "Mythbusters" on the Discovery Channel. Bring it on!

Ordering at drive-thru windows. I'm not kidding, I'm on my VERY BEST behavior when talking to those things because of what they can do to your food if they sense the SLIGHTEST LITTLE SLIVER of sarcasm - I mean, even if you don't mean it...it...it's just that, I never mean to stutter or cough or clear my throat... it just happens....or....or..."what did they think when I said that?"... "should I repeat the order?"..."if I do, will they think that I think that they are stupid?"... I just don't know quite, how...what the....FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!....but....


Okay, just settle down.

Take a deep breath.

Don't worry, Sam.

See, it's alright, isn't it?

I also have the fear that one day, due to all our excessive habits, the great well of Rum will finally run dry. We'll only be let with empty bottles and empty dreams.

Don't ever read Tony Bourdaine's "Kitchen Confidential" or the book "Fast Food Nation" - those will only increase your fear.

Following cement trucks ... eventhough my husband has explained to me very reasonably why it is a ridiculous fear.
