    I am terrified of fish. Fish in a tank, fish in open water, fish anywhere! I cannot swim in any place that has fish, I have massive panic attacks, even when it is really only seaweed touching my leg, I don't care, I totally freak out, fish are evil (I think they are plotting something).
    Although I will eat fish, I figure once they are dead AND cooked (anywhere in between those two stages is completely REVOLTING) I will eat the little buggers http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I also HATE clowns, I still run (yes, RUN) the other way when they come anywhere near me.

    One of my worst days was during a summer heat wave I went to the beach (only for the tanning and volleyball oppertunities, can't swim, damn fish!), and there was a bunch of clowns around trying to make business for new store. Picture me, running from the clowns, but could not escape them in the water, so I ended up sitting in the car, and I had to move the car to the FARTHEST parking spot in the lot becasue the damn clowns still harassed me when it was parked closer. Yes it was like a sauna, but I was safe from all the little fishes and their evil clown counterparts!

    This thread is awesome. Some of mine:

    I add everything. As in, if today is a 1 because 2+2+9+2+4=19. 1+9=10., 1+0=1.

    I didn't talk until I was 3, and then in complete sentences. No baby talk.

    I taught myself to read when I was 3 1/2--my grandmother was reading me a book, and I was reading along..she asked my mom, "did you know sarah could read?" I read War and Peace in fifth grade.

    I tend to be a hermit. I dread going outside and having people look at me.

    I hate talking in small groups, and have a slight lisp. I don't mind giving speeches in front of crowds, though.

    I mix cake mix with water and eat it for dessert ALL THE TIME. French Vanilla is my favorite!

    When I was a baby, I ate handfuls of dirt. My mom would punish me for grabbing potting soil of of pots in the mall, etc. My diapers were always full of sand.

    I used to sleep with the covers over my head. I still can't sleep without a heavy blanket, no matter how hot it is. I call it "reverse claustrophobia".

    I tend to be an insomniac, getting 3-4 hours of sleep for weeks on end, then 14 in a row.

    I'm terrified of spiders. I'm obsessive-compulsive about neatness, but not necessarily cleaniless--everything must be in its place, but I'm a lax duster and vaccumer.

    I want to be a historian, but I'm too afraid I won't be able to afford my horse, so I'm stuck in law school and hate it.

    I cant swim!!! My parents even sent me for lessons when I was younger. I think its a farmer thing-lovers of the land.

    nor can i whistle, do a cartwheel or even snap my fingers.... I am virtually talentless.

    However, my claim to fame in my family is that I started walking at 9 months, on my own- not holding on to something.
    My mothers saying is "she walked at 9 months, talked the next day, and she hasnt shutup since!"

    I am afraid of clowns, dolls ( I used to lock brenda bryer and any doll friends of hers up at night when I went to sleep - for fear they would come alive and hurt me) and ocean waves. Any time I am given the opportunity to choose an animal I always go for the underdog ( the one that is usually picked last ) for example: I was given the pick of the litter and I picked the runt because she was the littlest.

    OMG I love this thread. I am cracking up!!

    I thought of some others...

    I, too, am very afraid of the Ocean (I, seriously, just got the chills)

    I have never broken a bone, had a cavity, or gotten stitches. Knock on wood!!!!

    I can not be at home in regular clothes... as soon as I get home from anywhere, no matter what time it is, I have to put on pajamas.

    I hate feet, no one can touch or look at my feet. I don't own any sandals or toeless shoes because no one is allowed to see my feet.

    I'm sure I'll think of more, I'm a pretty weird kid!

    hmm i can't really think of any weird facts. well i have one kind of weird one. i can NOT get to sleep unless my blanket is completely covering me. when i was little, i always thought that someone would break into my house, go into my room, and cut off any body parts that weren't covered up with a chainsaw. and now i just can't sleep without being completely covered up http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    I have a tattoo of Nuno Oliveira on my back. From Annotated Sketches, Oliveira/Sauvaut, p.78, the same size as the sketch. Its him doing piaffe on a young horse.

    And a Daisy tattoo. My mare is named Daisy.

    My gelding is half Andy (Andalusian)

    ANd my boyfriend is named Andy. I tease him, about which "andy" I like better. Then he makes some joke about which andy I like to ride more... Hello!! No comment... http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I am 19. I didn't have my first kiss until 18. I joined the Air Force at 17.

    I consider myself average, and my boyfriend is hotter than Tom Cruise/Brad Pitt/Johnny Depp. take your pick.

    I always wanted to train horses(which I now do!! I train mine and 2 others) but I work in a dark building as a morse op.... hmm.

    I'm terrified of complete darkness.

    I am addicted to ice cream the way some people need cigarettes. I can eat a pint of Ben and Jerry's in about 3 minutes flat. I have eaten 2 gallons of ice cream in one day, only once tho! good thing I'm a runner... http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Nothing makes me happier than listening to good music while driving my car. well almost nothing.

    I spent the better part of my 17th summer in London.

    While there, out walking the streets after a long night of drinking, I was picked up by police, questioned, and driven "home".

    After a different long night, still in London, riding the bus this time, I missed my stop. It was the bus' last route of the night. The bus driver took me home.

    OH! I thought of another one... I don't think I've ever told anyone this though...
    Any store that I'm in, I try so hard, probably way too hard, not to look suspicious because I am afraid I'll be accused of stealing. I have no idea why I do this.

    My body chemistry kills batteries. Apparently I'm too acidic or too alkalinic or something. If a battery comes in contact with my skin for any time period (more than like, 2 minutes) the battery DIES.

    It sucks, because I can't wear watches unless the metal part on the back has a layer of plastic/metal/leather under it, otherwise, its dead SOON!

    When I was little my aunt's boyfriend tried to make my brother and I go to sleep on Christmas eve by telling us that the toe bats would come in through the window and eat our toes if we weren't asleep. I had to sleep on a cot under the window (at my grandfather's house) while my brother slept next to the door on a twin bed. I knew my toes would be eaten first. I laid awake, petrified of the toebats for 4 years.

    I never believed in Santa Claus, but I did think Rudolph was real (and, of course, the toe bats). http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/uhoh.gif

    Oh, and the only thing I've ever stolen was a book from my third grade teacher. I felt so bad that I regifted it to my fourth grade teacher (we had moved that summer). He probably still has that hot book in his possession. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif

    This isn't about me, but referring to the first kiss confessions from before...My friend had her first kiss last night and consequently did EVERYTHING else other than sex with the visiting sailor as well. I was freaked out by this. Am I wrong???
