am i the only one who refuses to do that vampire thing? everyone has that link posted, but not me? why? i'll tell you. i'm absolutely terrified of vampires. go ahead and laugh, but it's true. now i'll explain. you see, for some reason my neck is a very sensitive area, and if anything touches it, i freak out and have a mad tourette syndrome attack and jerk my head around until i feel better. people who know this like to try and touch my neck to get a reaction, and it really irritates me. so the thought of fangs getting anywhere near my neck is just unbearable. then there's the whole sucking blood and draining feeling. yuck. i don't even want to go there. i've had several panic attacks before, and the feeling of blood draining out of your face is very unpleasant. so that's why i'm scared of vampires. not their appearance, just their feeding methods.
megan likes to make me watch buffy. she's told me when to cover my eyes during bite scenes, but she missed one once and it almost made me sick. she's been trying to cure me of this phobia, and while i appreciate her efforts, they're not working, and i don't want to see or hear about vampires ever again. yikes
so this halloween better be vampire-free. just the thought of vampires makes me nauseous.
and now i have class. bye!
today i got "scarlet's walk" in the mail! tori's NEW album! that comes out tomorrow, but i ordered the limited ed. album with a special dvd and other goodies inside! anyway, i LOVE this album! it's great and pretty and wonderful and you should all buy it! i'm incredibly happy right now... *dances* i feel like strapping on my fairy wings and putting on something flowy and pretty and skipping around outside... tori just has that effect. hmmm, do i *have* anything flowy and pretty? most of my clothing is saggy and flumpy. well, i have that neat shirt kathleen got me to go swimming in, it's pretty... and i have 2 skirts i never wear that are kinda dullish but maybe the gray one would be nice... hmmmm... coordinating my wardrobe for prancing to tori's new album? *shakes head*
once again we barely got anything accomplished in sex and gender. we watched a video presentation of "silence of the lambs" and talked about ed gein and then discussed other stuff semi-relevant to the class. we're supposed to be on chapter 9 or 10 now, and we've barely discussed chapter 7... wow. and we have an exam next week, not to mention a quiz and paper in brit. lit. but i'm getting caught up on schoolwork, that's good. yay me!
today: argo meeting, then decorating the hall at 8. not terribly busy, but stuff to keep me occupied. let's see if i can get any homework done, shall we?
hehehe i just took a "realage" test (www.realage.com), and apparently my "realage" is 14.5 - so i'm really 5 years younger. apparently my lifestyle makes me younger, even if i'm overweight, don't eat quite as healthy as i could, and don't exercise very much besides fencing and scaling the stairs here. the test is designed for adults ages 20 and up, but i'll be 20 in less than 6 months, so i figured what the heck.
we were decorating the hall for halloween, stringing spiderwebs all over. we're going to lay my mannequin on the floor with red fabric under her to look like a pool of blood. and kids will come trick-or-treat!
WHY is it so friggin' cold in here?!?!?! i set the heater to 5 and left it there, and it's not working! damn you! i'm dipping into the halloween candy.
