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.

Maybe having a face to attach to the voice makes the telephone easier. I quite like talking to friends but they don't always phone at convenient moments. My cousin almost always rings just as a pan is about to boil. I absolutely hate phoning strangers, even banks etc. and will put it off for ever or get Colin to do it for me - he thinks I'm mad!

Do I want to know about the Vanuatu incident? :)

I find cordless telephones minimise inconvenience from calls, I talk to people in the bath, hanging out washing, cooking tea... they don't need to know...now the only problem is when people call and I'm about to go!!

But I still don't like making business calls much!

As for the Vanuatu incident, Jenny was unwise enough to pursue this story and ended up screaming a bit!! - I suggest you look there if you would like to hear about cockroaches and other strange inhabitants in Vanuatu!
