Irrational Fears

hello lovelies,
I'm afraid I've been terribly busy- in the past three days I've cooked around 40 recipes (many of which are self-created), calculated the calorie count for each recipe, and the written each recipe down. Right now I'm in the process of typing all the recipes up and simultaneously converting them to serve 30 people. This whole catering for a small camp thing is a lot more work than I expected! Especially with my greece trip fast approaching. I have a whole slew of things I have to do for that as well, but I've had to put it on the back burner for now.

Anyways, this has kept me from blogging regularly. Also, I have been doing the wardrobe challenge but have been way too busy (and bug bitten the first few days) to snap/upload photos. I will probably do a collective post at the end of this week to show you all seven of my hipster-ed out outfits.
 I did want to stop by for just a few minutes today and talk about irrational fears, though. Do you have any? I have a few that I can think of and probably several more that I can't. They're so silly, and I usually don't let them bother me but they are often in the back of my head. I suppose as long as they aren't interfering with my life it's ok. Here are a few of my more ridiculous ones:

1. I have an irrational fear of walking in front of a grocery cart. If I go shopping with Stewart and he's pushing the cart, I can't walk in front of it without being terrified that he's accidentally going to push quicker than I'm walking and run over my ankles. Death by run over ankles. It's terrifying!
2. Whenever I am carrying a tea pot with one hand by the handle, I get worried that the handle will break off and the entire pot of tea will come crashing to the floor and ceramic and boiling water will go everywhere. I'm sure the manufacturers of tea pots are smart enough to make handles that are strong enough to avoid this issue, but it still scares me.
3. If I go to the bathroom- at my house or anyone else's house- and the shower curtain is closed, I have to check behind it before doing anything else. There could be a murderer or a drunk kid or a giant spider behind there! It's so much easier for people to just leave their shower curtains open. Less aesthetic, yes... but also way less stressful for me and all the other crazies out there.

Do you guys have any irrational fears? I'd love to hear about them. Cause, you know, there's nothing more amusing than finding out about someone's bizarre/OCD side :)

Love you all! Hopfully back to regular posting soon :)



  1. I have the irrational fear. When I'm driving my car and someone is walking on the side of the road, I always have this fear that they will jump in front of my car in attempted suicide and i will be helpless to react quick enough. So dumb. i know. How often does that happen? haha.

  2. Sam's done that cart thing to me before! It hurts so so bad!
    My irrational fear is that if I am carrying scissors or a knife, i'm afraid I'll drop it on my foot (ala Monica and Chandler) or drop it on one of my pets.

  3. I was working on a post about fears this morning! So weird. I'm going to be posting it tonight or tomorrow, so feel free to check that out haha.

    oh, and I'm so with you on the shopping cart thing. That's happened to me before and it's really painful.

  4. ...I was just writing a post about how I'm afraid of my own reflection.

    We're a bunch of scaredy cats. I also passed on a Stylish Blogger Award to you. Check it out.

  5. I have an awful habit of pulling my shopping cart behind me from the front.. and I've jammed shopping carts into my ankles tons of times. Not a fear I guess if I keep doing it.. but definitely painful.

    Not sure if its much of a fear but I hate oranges so much (weird, I know) and the smell of them is like nails on a chalkboard for me.
