Things that freak me out



The possibility of dropping my keys down a storm drain.

Anything being pointed at my eyeball.

The plastic-faced giant Burger King man on the commercials.

(And no, I'm not kidding about that last one. I had to shield my eyes from the TV a minute ago because the creepy Burger King was on.)

What's the weirdest thing that gives you the willies?

empty eye sockets

Ocean waves. Even whitecaps. Even in movies. Can. Not. Watch. Surf. Movies.

The weird part? I swim in San Francisco Bay all year round. In a protected cove, to be sure, but it does get rough occasionally.

Eyeballs. I cannot look at Flea's site at the moment.

Chuckie movies.

People who drone on and on about their medical problems and procedures. (Gah! The procedures!)

OH! Definitely Eye Fu. I also cannot stand it when anything gets too close to my eyeball. Although it doesn't bother me to have an eye exam or put on eye makeup--just unexpected or unreliable stuff, I guess.

Having people pull on my clothes, even my kids. Hate it.

Black widow spiders. Ick.

Scary plastic Burger King, no. Mac Tonight, yes.

The weirdest thing that gives me the willies is: not that weird, actually, but it TOTALLY gives me the willies. We have a cat we have nicknamed "Slayer" because she loves to bring home gifts--chipmunks, birds, moles...and my Love picks them up by the tail or foot or something and hucks them across the road into the woods...and I shudder at the thought!

p.s. I tell everyone that my uber
cool, educated, smartsy friend loved Barack before he was running for President.

One of my dearest friends ever has two border terriers who will lick my feet if I let them get near me(my friend's house is shoes-off, as is mine). I don't know if I can describe how wierd and creepy it feels, but it just about sends me through the ceiling every time it happens. My friend and her husband, on the other hand, kind of like it when the dogs do it to them, so even though they're quite good about trying to keep the dogs away from me, they don't really understand my freakiness about it.
