Green Room - Week 21 - Day 4

What scares you?

No. Not "scare" - what terrifies you? The bumps in the night and the cold shiver running down your neck?

I know one of the things that does - it's a poll!

The poll http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/778354.html is on a pressure plate. It could end today. But if you are very good, eat all of your vegetables, and make sure this Green Room gets over 100 comments before 5pm EDT, then no one has to leave until Tuesday evening, and isn't that a great birthday present to give Cynthia - not having me leave her to close the poll/announce eliminations?

and the other is the new topic that is due! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/779089.html

But what else?

Fristness?

Mwah-ha-ha-ha-haaaaa!

As for things that are actually scary, other than my villain laugh, that would be having someone I love die. I fear that so much more than dying myself.

Oh, yeah, I forgot about bugs and spiders. That's more of a phobia than an actual fear for me, though... I still don't want spiders anywhere near me, or either of them ON me. Yick!

Woke up this morning because I dreamed I had to go somewhere and couldn't take the cat and woke up gagging all over my pillow and sheets. Thankfully I didn't eat anything right before bed, so it wasn't as messy as it could have been? But apparently going new places without the cat in tow scares my subconscious. Of all the odd things!

My cats usually try to pack themselves into my luggage, but they've never packed themselves into my dreams like that! Silly kitties!

I hate heights.

*Nods* I love being up high, like in a tall building or in an airplane - the view is awesome. What I dislike are unprotected/open heights, like ladders.

I guess it's more a fear of falling than a fear of heights.

Court terrifies me.

/does not want to go to court, this morning.

I've managed to avoid court thus far. From what I understand, there's typically lots of waiting around and doing nothing time. Bring a good book!

Oh, and good luck!

Happy Birthday Cynthia!!!!

In other news, I'm up too early on my day off because I had to drive E (aka the housemate) to the train station She got in from MD last night around 10:30 after leaving MD around 11AM...most of thst time she spent sitting on the NJ turnpike. That doesn't surprise me in the least. OTOH had the taken the long way around through PA she wouldn't have gotten here until after midnight.

As for me? I worked all weekend. Um, yeah, the less I say about that the more zen and philosophical I'll remain.

Not much scares me. My hub is taking up the slack there. I don't know how he does it, but he does, and it's amazing how he can pull off seeming to not be a chemo patient when he is.
Time to head off to work! Have a good one! It's the 15th which = Pay Day! Woot!

One of my former colleagues once described me as being "scared of everything."

As well as me or a loved one dying, I'm also scared of my cat dying (which I know is inevitable as he's quite old now) as he really is like a child to me. He's also my first pet, so I've not had the "pet dying" experience before.

I'm also rather shy, so any kind of public speaking or doing anything while people look at me scares me.

And then there are the ice skating moves - jumping, turning on one foot, etc...

I'm the same. I am afraid of spiders, needles (more specifically injections), telephones, dying or having loved ones die, something happening to one of my pets, being centre of attention for any reason...

I said that I would post these
I won't tag her, because this is apparently a secret, but if you know "7 of 9" (AKA the winner of Idol Season 7) aka amenquohi then you know that her life hasn't always been easy.

Her friends want to have a special get-together for her... but need help funding it.

So they asked me to post a link: http://www.gofundme.com/ef4be4

Also, given that it's Cynthia's birthday, this is as good of a time as any to post that her daughter Celena is having a fundraiser of her own! She is selling magazines and assorted stuff (I say assorted because I thought the packet she brought home was full of different items, but the website is really all over the place! I'm sure there's something you want/need! :D)

So go http://gaschoolstore.com/ Hit "Shop" and use the code 22ZACGD (that will take you to her page!)

My biggest fear is having something happen to my kids. Losing a young woman who was another daughter(just not by blood) to a drunk driver, last Jan. really brought it home that each day is precious. (She was 24)...

That's very sad. But you're right, things like that are a good reminder that we should live every single day as it comes.

My biggest fear has always been something happening to the dogs. The first time Ember got out on my watch I panicked so badly that I was nearly inconsolable. At the time SO and I were dating, and he was living in a duplex at the edge of, shall we say, a rather notorious city neighborhood. So Ember got out, I panic, so I go out looking for her.

I had no idea until after the fact that Ember saw me walking around calling her name and decided to follow me. I had no idea she was following me...there I was in tears calling her and thinking the worst possible scenarios...

And then I get back to the duplex (SO was already home from work) and I'm an utter basket case. I turn, and there's Ember.

I FREAKING NEARLY DROPPED DEAD.

And then I yelled at her because she didn't let me know she'd been following me all along. She forgave me. She always did.

And...oh, I forgot this one: The first time Max got out (this was maybe a month or so after we'd adopted him) he was gone in a flash, and of course there was no way SO could catch up with him. He went down to the park because it's the first place around here where the dogs go...he goes down there, no Max. So after a flurry of phone calls, I get in the Jeep and decide to circle around what I call "Casa Coyote", which are the wetlands behind the park.

And I'm trying not to panic because even though coyotes don't like wolves, Max is just goofy enough to try to make friends with them :headdesk:

I don't find him, so of course I'm thinking worst case scenario. I don't want to call SO in a panic however, so I slowly circle back toward home going down all the side streets. No Max. By the time I get home I'm shaking.

Meanwhile unbeknownst to me Max is leading SO on an adventure quest which started at the far end of the park (he found Max there after we'd talked) and ended at a dumpster in back of an apartment building near Casa Coyote. He only captured Max because Max was goofy enough to enter the dumpster's enclosure...and he had no idea how to get out of it!
