07:40 pm: Copied from mama_bec, two days late.

1. If you have a phobia (or something close to one), what is it?
Balloons and explody things. I've never liked balloon parties, freak out if there's a chance of one exploding, and generally have a hair-trigger anxiety disorder for loud, sudden noises (I can watch a horror movie and laugh my way through it, but will always jump at the sudden noises.) Also bees, but I'm allergic to those, so that's a rational fear.

2. How long have you had the phobia (or something close to it)?
As long as I can remember, for both of them.

3. If you know anyone with a phobia (or something close to it), how does s/he act when s/he is experiencing it?

Speaking of myself, I freak out. My senior year, Daisy Gonzalez taped a balloon to my door along with a birthday card. I kept the card and returned the balloon to her, because I just knew, sooner or later, that it would explode.

4. What is one phobia you would wish not to have?
Neophobia, fear of anything new. That would be one hell of a boring life. Also, speaking as a bibliophile, bibliophobia would suck. I love my books.

5. What is one phobia you wouldn't mind having, if you were to face one?
I'm sure this would suck anyway, but according to Phobialist, counterphobia is defined as "fearful situations being preferred by a phobic" - that strikes me as good in a way, because then you'd be able to deal with your phobia. (Yeah, I know that's not how it would really work out - but it's an interesting notion.)

01:08 am: A conversation with ALICE.
So ptexpress and I were IMing tonight and I pointed out ALICE to her. She hadn't seen it before.

Beneath the cut-ID lies my conversation. WARNING: Fourth-grade insults and cursing abound, so if you're upset by mean and insensitive personal insults a la Portal of Evil (at a chat robot, for heaven's sake) and epithets, below is not the place for you.

ALICE, Weight Watchers, and Vietnamese.Collapse )
