Just a few quick notes!!!

Well as most of you know yesterday I posted that I recieved my invatation to go audtion for the show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" I am happy to report after much ass kissing and convincing and budget planning that YAY!!!! I can go!!! Well it didn't take much ass kissing... lol I caught the wife while she was still in her waking up groggy stages and heck what can I say..... She just can't tell me no..... :) So very EARLY Tuesday morning we will be headed out to NYC baby!!! I am so excited!!!

Ok on another note....
I have been doing some thinking this morning about my weird self and wanted to share some tidbits with you...
What is it in life that you are scared of? I have lots of fears. I'm not sure if you would call them phobias or not... but I got to thinking and this just kinda hit me...

I will not walk into a dark bathroom. Yup how weird is that? I don't even look in our bathroom if the lights are out.. I will fumble around til I find the light switch and then will I enter a nicely lit bathroom. Not sure why... I've been doing this for years! (I know I'm strange)

I don't like water! Yes I take daily showers. I'm talking about the kind of water like lakes, oceans, rivers, pools...etc.... It's not that I'm scared of water, I just like to know what the hell is swiming around my feet. And if I can't see the bottom, I'M NOT GOING IN! Now I know what you are thinking... what does a pool have to do with not seeing the bottom? Well actually I don't like swiming in pools becuz the chemicals in pools give me massive headaches... Maybe I'm allergic to something... Who knows... But I guess I have seen to many Animal Planet shows and to many Jaws films to even attempt to get in the water anymore? I've seen the size of fish that they catch on Animal Planet... And you think I'm just going to go swiming with those massive beasts? HA! Not on your life!! Some of those fish (while they are not man eaters) are friggin as big as a truck!!! Nope not me, I'm good! I feel I wasn't brought into this world a fish so I'm staying on land! Bright side is, I never have to worry about bathing suit shopping :)

I hate heights. And I never realized how much I actually hated heights til I was a sophmore in high school. I got the lucky chance to go to NYC while I was a sophmore in high school. And on this trip we got the wonderful chance to go to the top of the Empire State Building. Talk about cool!!! So up we go.... And if you have never been to the top of the Empire State Building, well talk about a breath taking view!!! Anywho... we get to the top of the building and first thing I saw when we got off the elevator was a huge fence type thing around the top of the building. First thing my little brain thinks is ...... "What moron tried jumping?" LOL!!! Never having been that high off the ground before. I march straight up to the fence and look straight down! BAD IDEA!!! I passed out! Yup happened that quick! :) But after I came to and started looking around I noticed something odd.... the friggin building was swaying! So I kinda freaked... but I tried to remain calm... Tried goign to the fence yet again!!! Looking down all I remember was how my knees felt weak, my heart started pounding and the only thing I could think was how much I wanted to be safely at the bottom of the HUGE building!!! While it was a wonderful experience, I don't think I'd do it again :)

Let's see what else freaks me out.... Oh I know .... Haunted houses! LOL I mean the type that they set up for kicks around Halloween time to get money and scare the shit out of you types of haunted houses!!! I can not stand being scared shitless! I had a bad experience a few years back. Never before had I been to a haunted house or anything of the sort. So a few years back I decide to go. HA HA HA HA HA NEVER AGAIN! And that is all the wife can talk about doing before Halloween!!! Forget it!!! The story of my first and last time in a haunted house will remain buried deep within me for years to come!!! You will not get it out of me... but it wasn't fun for me!!! I cried, I ran, I bumped into a huge man with a chainsaw when I wasn't looking... Yea bad experiences.... :)

Well these are just a few of the things that make me who I am. What about you? Tell me!!!

Signing off,
Sabrae Carter

I am scared to death of heights too! Not just being high up but falling!! I live on the 3rd floor and cannot even go out on my balcony without feeling dizzy and I freak out when my son or someone else gets close to the edge..Ay Carumba! haha

Good luck on Tuesday, just be careful if you get up there to not miss the first few questions. You know the ones where they ask thinks like, "A cat goes? A Oink B Bark C Meow D Waffle" Cause you would never live it down if you freaked and answered D Waffle :)

Good luck with Millionaire. If you win can I borrow $500? :)

Maybe you're afraid to go into a dark bathroom because you think a crazed homicidal maniac with a hatchet it hiding behind your shower curtain. Just a theory.

I agree on the haunted house thing. Sometimes I worry that their chain saws or knives are real, so I run away and scream like a total freak!!!
