national face your fears day!

Did you know October 13th is a holiday?? That's right - it's National Face Your Fears Day! I can think of two fears right off the top of my head... both of which I will NOT be facing today. Too traumatizing to even think about facing them. Actually looking up the following images on Google images has me in a tizzy.

Fist fear is clowns. I'm sure you know someone (or you yourself) have this fear. I'm terrified of them. I *believe* it stems from the movie 'IT' which I watched way too young at a friends house but nevertheless - they creep me out.
The only clown that doesn't creep me out is Bozo the Clown for some reason. I think because I wanted to be on his show so badly when I was a kid.


Now that I'm looking at him again... he is quite frightening. I don't know what I was thinking. He's on my 'to fear' list. That hair, those eyebrows - I'm in the throws of a panic attack as I write this. Breathe.....

My next fear is a bit more abnormal. I have a complete and utter fear of things touching my neck. I. Can't. Handle. It. Remember when choker necklaces were all the rage? Yeah, homegirl couldn't rock one because I would have gone into convulsions.


I can't wear turtlenecks, necklaces that graze my clavicles, etc. I immediately feel like I'm being choked. It's even bad enough where when I go to the dentist or hair salon - I have to ask them to keep the gown loose. You know how they like to jack that thing into your neck. Yeesh. Scares me just thinking about it.

Your turn! What fears do you have??

My dad let me watch IT when I was also too young and I HATE clowns!!! There terrify me, especially the creepy ones they put in haunted houses. I will run and scream like a 5 year old girl.

I'm afraid of the shadows in the corners of rooms at night. I'm always afraid they'll materialize into something that will "get" me. If I'm home alone at night, I'll have all the lights on.

I am so with you on clowns. The movie It scared the crap out of me. There was also one about clowns from outer space that drank peoples blood. I am also terrified of porcelain dolls, also because of a scary movie I saw as a child.

Clowns don't bother me, but I'm with you on things coming up my neck. Necklaces don't bother me but I could never, ever, EVER wear a turtleneck. Ever. I'd feel like a couldn't breathe... glad I'm not the only one with a nutty phobia, haha!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Your blog is cute! :)

I don't have any normal fears..I'm the over paranoid type..I think someone is following me if they take a couple turns with me or something..I watched too many horror movies growing up. So my biggest fear is getting attacked..Although I am also terrified of insects crawling on me too!
