well, can the people on tv see me or am i just paranoid

Included on the list of things that creep me out just a little bit are the following:
  • My lingering fascination with Dave Navarro. I own nothing the man has ever really played on, except this, but since "Rockstar INXS" I've had a little desire to have him flash me the rock and roll salute and tell me that, while he doesn't understand me or get where I'm going with it, he loves my heart and passion. Then I'd probably lick his skinny little body and we'd both be a little creeped out.
  • That after this week, there is only one week of school left and soon there will be two little boys around me constantly, wanting to be entertained and fed. I'm not exactly ready for summer vacation. This could be in part because I feel like I'm living "Groundhog Day" when they're around. Every day it's reminding them of the same rules they had to follow the previous day. They should know them, of course, because I had to tell them about them the day before that. It's because of this that I, too, would like to end my day with a drink to world peace.
  • Finding my youngest son, three years into knowing how to use the toilet, recently sitting on the toilet with the lid closed, fully dressed and reading Once Upon A Potty. Apparently some refresher courses are never a bad idea.
  • Looking up my address on Google Earth and finding my house so clearly defined that you can see the crack on the lid of our Little Tykes frog sandbox in the backyard. Every day, I think I may just step out onto my deck and wave to the sky, hoping one day I might actually show up on the satellite image. Or Dave Navarro will spot me and swoop in to do nasty things to me.

Now it's your turn. What creeps you out?

Things like "lame blog posts like this one, Ms. Navarro," don't count, btw.

those satellite pictures are freaky, huh?! what creeps me out? hmm...when my dog licks his paws. it's ok for cats to do that, but it's not okay for a 6 inch tongue to gracefully be tonguing an equally long foot. oh my god, it's so gross.

Um, since we're on the topic of creepy things and Mom brought dogs into the discussion, can I mention our little Boston terrier (actually our oldest daughter's dog, but, uh, she can't keep him where she's living, so we're sort of his 'foster-masters' until such time as she can reclaim him; 'yeah, right' i can hear you saying. To which I can only sigh in response)?

The silly critter is a 'fixed' male, and apparently the 'surgery' left him with some 'itchy' scar tissue, so that he's constantly dragging himself across the carpet by his front paws, with his rear legs splayed apart behind him. And, whenever Molly takes him to the park, he winds up trying to hump every female he sees, which I thought wasn't supposed to occur to him anymore. (sigh)

But creepy? Most definitely. . .

Yeah, I can see the crack on the lid of your frog sandbox too. And I've been meaning to tell you that you really need to mow your lawn.

The cool thing about satellite imagery, of course, is that when you DO step outside to wave, I can see right down The Cleavage.

Not that I was looking.

I have a creepy fascination with Dave Navarro myself...this is the first time I'm actually admitting it. But if anyone asks I will vehemently deny it. I started to think *things* bout him after his reality show...then Rockstar INXS came along...and I was sunk. I thought I was alone in my freaky fascination. :-X

Ground Hog Day, good analogy. I have been telling my son some things hundreds of times a day for years now, and I still have to do it every day. He has a talent for often doing exactly the most wrong thing at the most inopportune moment. The time he tried to climb on top of the US Constitution at the National Archives comes to mind. I walk through every store we go to repeating "Don't touch anything" out loud. I get some weird looks until they see my son in spasms trying to touch and "reconfigure" nearly everything in sight. There is usually a clean up call just after we leave each aisle in the grocery store....

Men with beards creep me out to no end. I can't begin to make you understand.

Dave Navarro however....Holy shitfire and damnation...I could spend a couple of hours in a locked room with him and come out a better woman for it. That boy has the most amazing eyes and it's no secret that I like a boy who wears eyeliner, now if I could just get DH to put some one once in a while I'd......well..nevermind.

Summer Vac started yesterday here. While I hate divorce, it's the .01% saving grace since it means kids won't be in the apt all day for a couple of months. (Mommy also teaches and has summer vac too!)

Creeps? elevator shafts, long dark hallways, and (biggest) swimming in deep murkey water. ehhhh!!

Okay. I can hardly think about this without getting the chills, but I first learned about these frog freaks from the discovery channel. Totally grossed me out. These frogs lay their eggs, and then roll over them on their backs, pushing the eggs into their pores. Then, when the baby frogs are being born, they crawl out of the pores on the mommy's back! AAAAHHHH!!!!! Could that BE more disgusting???? I thought I had thoroughly suppressed my knowledge of these creatures, but then I saw a commercial for some new warming cleanser that showed a woman wrapped in a towel inside each pore on a much larger woman's face and it brought the whole nightmarish recollection back. Why would I want to imagine ANYTHING is living in my face???

Okay, I need to stop now because I'm sounding like a total nut job here.

Its just too disgusting...

What creeps me out, is snakes lizards. Sorry to hear summer vacation already started for some of you. We still have three more weeks of school left, then they go back on Aug 21st.

There really isn't much that freaks me out. Well except for heights. Just thinking about them makes my body tense up.

Then there are big boobies. I have a fear of big breasts. I wasn't always like that but being suffocated kinda ruins them for you.

You da mom - Actually, the idea of a six inch tongue doing just about anything to any parts is a little creepy to me. Just a little!

Desmond - That's creepy and a little sad, to be honest. My best friend growing up had a dog who did nasty, nasty, creepy things to itself across the living room rug while we'd be laying there watching TV. To be honest, when I got "hit" with some of that nasty stuff, I had to stay home for awhile. Because I was creeped out!

FTN - That's not my long grass you're seeing, mister. That's the hair winding down Beastly Neighbor's torso and back. I suggest you turn your eye back to The Cleavage. 'Cause sure. You're not really looking.

Unspoke Drama - We can tag team Dave N. How's that for a plan? I'm totally on him.

Nanette - Remind me not to post the picture I have of my bloody hand, holding a knife over a pan of delicious frosted brownies. That damn frosting container lid sliced my thumb like a Quentin Tarantino movie!

It's better now, though, so I'll wave at you!

CC Dad - Oh, I'd have freaked at the museum if that had happened with my kids! Every place we go, before we ever leave the mini, I turn to the back and ask "What are the rules?" and then repeat them again. And again three minutes later, when they're all being broken!

Stacie - Honestly, I'm more a goatee kinda girl. I'm definitely a girl who appreciates the well placed bit of eye liner on a guy, too. Seriously. Dead sexy! I don't even care if it's the cheap Wet & Wild stuff, but I bet Dave N. does the expensive M.A.C. stuff. I'll ask him when I come up for air!

Finding Heart - As a child, I had no problems swimming in ponds and lakes, with fish and swamp life around me, picking algae off my body when done. Now? Oh, there is no freakin' way I'm even dipping a toe in a pond. Not after a fish bit me somewhere inappropriate for a fish to bite. Disgusting! If I can't see the bottom, I don't get in!

Savage - My love of bad 80s pop doesn't creep you out? Even just a little bit? Come on!

Desmond - Way to rock the emoticon beard there, mister...

Nocturnal - Cocky, smart, skilled and in eye liner. Who am I to argue with that kick ass equation?

Therese - Your link wouldn't take me to the frogs, but honestly, after reading the description you gave, I'm glad! I cringed! I also cringe at that gross toe fungus medicine commerical, when that little cartoon fungus lifts the toenail up. I'm shuddering right now just thinking of it...

Summer - I'm not a big snake or lizard fan, either. I would, however, probably be a fan of a two month summer school vacation!

Stacie - I think if Dave N. grew a full beard, I'd have little problem with that. At all.

CH - So basically what you're saying to me here is that *I* would creep you out. Minus the suffocation part, mind you, but in essense...

Would it make it worse for you if I climbed atop a ladder and displayed it all?

Too bad! I get creeped out by heights, too!

Kinda hard to creep me out anymore .... but I'd probably be on several folks list of creepy things.

Good point on GE, I'm always astonished by that too.

As for creeping me out, I would have to say Nascar driver commentary resembling our worthless leader, make that fearless so-called leader.

Yeah, I'll stick to Formula 1 and the Queen's English.

Nocturnal - I'll wave at you, too, next time I'm out in the backyard. I'm sure I'll be easy to spot.

What creeps me out is watching Indy and listenting to the commentators spend more time pimping the television shows on the network than talking race (despite rain delays).

What doesn't creep me out, for sure, is accents. A sucker every time.

XI - Oh, I'm sure you're not on people's "creepy" lists!

Therese - That video, seriously, made my stomach turn. First, that frog is hideous. I am not a frog fan. But then the "birthing process"? Honestly, sitting here now, typing this, my stomach is churning. That is simply hideous!

So thanks for sharing!

XI - The good part? The part that keeps us all a little bit sane?

The fact that we're all a little bit creepy on the inside.

At least, that's what I tell myself. I'm sure I have to be a little bit creepy to think the way I do sometimes!

I still think that frog is n-a-s-t-y, though!
