What are you afraid of? I'm not afraid to admit I'm afraid of the dentist and everything to do with that place, I'm afraid of bananas, of being tied up, crowded malls, the edges of tall buildings or balconies, getting food on my hands (I hate that, when you're doing the dishes and there are all those crumbs and things *shudder* hmmm but maybe I hate it more than I'm afraid of it)... I'm not sure what else.

We were looking at a phobia site tonight... http://phobialist.com/
These would be some of my favourites, for the absurdity, to me. Of course, to others, they might be really serious so no offence intended, team... it's just, when you have fears, it's fun to laugh at other people's fears, to minimise the seriousness of your own. So... I did.

Geniophobia- Fear of chins
Deipnophobia- Fear of dinner conversations (that's how I met Steve really - long story!)
Kyphophobia- Fear of stooping
Proctophobia- Fear of rectums
Telephonophobia- Fear of telephones (I just like saying the word really)
Theophobia- Fear of gods or religion (plenty of those on the Net)
Xanthophobia- Fear of the color yellow

Phobophobia- Fear of phobias

and the best of all...

Zemmiphobia- Fear of the great mole rat!! You look, it's really there!

There's nobody about. Think I'll go write now. Working on Breathing Space. And I'm finally falling in love with Nick all over again, and he's flying now. OMG I love him... and he's not gay *g* - but *sigh* he's not real either...
Anyway, I haven't slept more than six hours a night for ages. It's wearing thin. I'm going to go see how I get on at least going to bed before eleven. Just have to hang out the white shirts... see you round.

It's a pretty comprehensive list of fears really, but I'm struggling to describe what I'm afraid of. Like you I hate dealing slimy leftover food, and grids and toilets too... but I'm not afraid, I just really dislike it...
I don't like phoning strangers either but I do it and I don't think it's really a fear...
I don't like people being ill, but I'm not afraid of illness as such, and I'm not afraid of death, nor even disability, I'm sometimes frightened when people throw up, I certainly don't much like being there, I used to be much worse about that but a combination of pregnancy and small children cured me of the worst of it...

I'm glad that Nick has woken up and come to life for you, I'm looking forward to meeting him!

Our white shirts are hanging on the line too!

Hee, maybe you're just really, really well balanced. I've always thought that you have a measured and level headed approach to most things I deal with anyway!!! Which I really appreciate!

Luckily it was warm enough for them to dry overnight on the fold out line inside!

Oh, I'd love to rave about him, he's so cute! I just had something missing before and then I had a brainwave and now, I can't wait to get back to him! It's very odd but very exciting!
