Haha!

She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

Boat Hulls, mainly large ones. Especially when the water is murky. It makes me very nautious and I come out in cold sweats, a shame because I love boats.

The thought of being in the water next to a boat hull ARGHHHHHHH. I'm going funny typing it.

Canal banks with man made concrete or iron walls do the same to me.

I'm not too great on standing very close to massive structures myself - there's something near me called The Dream, which looks like this:

My family wants to walk up to it one day, but the prospect fills me with dread. I have the same concerns about The Angel of the North and Christ the Redeemer.

I'm not that good with insects, but it doesn't reach phobia levels. Funnily enough, the worst ones are those that can't actually do anything. Crane flies used to be on my "strongly dislike" (fear is too strong a word) list, but I think Fallible cured me just now.

Argh,theres a wall! Argh, theres a wall! Ah, that's better......ARGH THERE'S A WALL! SHITSHITSHITSHITSHIT!!!!!'


Since the last thread on the subject, I've thought of something else. I think I'm afraid of becoming scared of heights/getting vertigo. :lol: I sometimes dream of having vertigo, and when it happens, it always continues to bug me until I get up somewhere high and look down (or jump down, if it's summer and I have access to a diving platform or convenient cliff) just to see whether I'm still OK with it.

I can't watch people being chatted up, even on TV. That's just me being odd rather than a phobia.

I saw an Eddie Izzard show only a couple of weeks ago...

...just thought I'd throw that in. :whistle:
