Phobias...

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.

Fly spray does kill cockroaches, but it does it very slowly... and their dying involves extremely frenetic flying around the room (yes the cockroaches in Vanuatu fly). This particular cockroach decided that his 'dying swan" routine would involve landing on my head and crawling through my hair...
I don't much like cockroaches, but it is completely rational!!!

My other cockroach story nearly put me off coffee!!!!

One morning Ian made me a cup of coffee while I was still in bed. When I started to drink it there seemed to be a piece of thread in it...I couldn't fish it out so I kept drinking, only to realise that the piece of thread was really one of those very long antennae... I think the poor thing drowned!!

As I said, I don't much like cockroaches!!!

Well you did ask to hear my cockroach stories!...Perhaps I should change the subject... I've got a good story about what I found in my hallway...

I know, I asked. I shouldn't have. But what is in your hallway? Dare I ask?

Okay, if you're sure!
At one time we had a load of packing boxes in our hallway, and one day we heard a noise coming from the middle of them...
It was quite a loud noise, not the sort of thing you can ignore! At first we thought it was rat, but it sounded harder than a rat, a giant cockroach maybe??( No we couldn't even entertain the idea of a giant cockroach) So we removed the boxes one by one until I came face to face with this enormous crab! It started scuttling towards me, nippers clicking... so I picked up the box it was in and carried it outside. While I did that the crab kept coming towards me and I kept turning the box to make it go further away!!

Though now I think about it the biscuits were probably more creepy than the crab!!

Yeah, a crab was rather a surprise, but as I said, not as much as the biscuits!!
