I'm to the point that I can be completely relaxed and positive that I can actually go through with it - I feel like the most reasonable person in the world. But the second the needle comes out of the package, I'm in the corner of the room in a fetal position in tears. Even though I warn the phlebotomist, he or she is *never* prepared for it. *sigh* I take solace in the fact that I'm not the only one XD

Steel yourself and look in the other direction dear, there is no alternative.

I have to get 40 shots in one arm soon.

40 ! holy lord !! wut is it leprosy or rabies ?

Allergies. I get to inject myself with 40 different things to see which ones cause an allergic reaction.

I think I can live with the snivels but naturally I'd have no choice in the matter.
i will also like to know you the more

I got 80 last time. And tomorrow I get to go do it all over again.
I win. ;)

yeah it sucks though, last time they told me it would feel like a slight “pinch”. It doesn't. It feels like you're getting a ton of flu shots, one right after the other. And then you have to sit there and watch them, praying the chocolate section doesn't react.

Ah what the hell? I'm sooo glad i don't have allergies right now, that's just crazy @_@

I'm still afraid of shots though, once when i was younger i even kicked the lady giving them trying to get away (it was the bus for mandatory school shots, mom had to hold me down)

I'd assume you lose the fear after doing it 40 or so times.

Phobias - I read current practice to cure a phobia is to expose a person to the phobia trigger numerous times until they are “deconditioned”.

Like if you are afraid of snakes then they would take you to a room full of snakes, get you to touch a snake, handle a snake, etc, etc..

But Holy Moly, if you are afraid of NEEDLES, then what?!

“Skull: novellas”
Heh, I finished my first novella (in my sig). It was more just to try a new medium, and it was neat to try.

seventy2
i can't see bocaj's picture he posted for me….
It was a youtube video, you can try again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Z2vU8M6CYI

WOAH. I know that cat…Chii…my girlfriend showed me the episode when Chii goes to the doctor and then begins to hate her father ;).

I Am The 1337 Master
Caberet
Wicked
Caberet is amazzzzzzing. Probably one of the most interesting and not merely entertaining musicals, like Three Penny Opera and Candid. Wicked is pretty good, I saw it on Broadway, and enjoyed it.

Needles…
I am so afraid of needles, but at least I'm not as bad as my father :p
I don't even like to look at them in a movie. I have gotten better over time, though. At the doctors, I just look away and tell them not to tell me anything until it is out of me.

Don't read Rape.

wow, dealing with ka-blam outside of convention season? speedy like hell. I'm not ordering paper proofs this time (not yet anyway, will order copies for myself once I got enough sales to pay for them) but I sent off my files yesterday. Today they asked for reupload of one of them (stupid megaupload!). Well, I did so, sent it to them and guess what? The books are already assembled (in only an hour or two). Went to add them to indyplanet/comicsmonkey, and unless they get flooded with stuff, they should be up on both pretty soon. Yay!

Future tasks (for tonight and tomorrow): finish the damned website (95% done!), set up the new webcomic so I can post my short comics/oneshots in there…

One of these days someone's going to post a picture of a “fashionable” caveman/cavewoman outfit.

Not great, but it's a start:

O_O

and I thought Ringo Star and his “Caveman” movie was bad. Granted that was way back when…

Funny how the only guy to speak “English” was the asian, and he mostly said four letter words…

Wow, I'm at over 20K posts and I didn't even realise it o_O
That means I'll need a wheelbarrow to carry around my E-peen.
Conversely, it now means my real-peen is microscopic. …time to get a sexchange :(

It's not Caberet the musical. It's a collection of numbers from different shows.

I really should be working on my Geometry project right now…

So, my sleeping pattern… what sleeping pattern? Oh, I do sleep. It's just that… there's NO pattern, haha.

In other news… waiting on Indyplanet to put my links up, waiting on a friend to move on with the proofreading of my novel, waiting on myself to move my ass and finish off the preparations for the oneshot comic. Lots of waiting today. Maybe I should stop waiting and do some Doing instead. Like, create something or whatever.

Well who says they always have to be a different pair? That's Michael Bay through and through.

Wicked was WICKED, I made caberet (no solo though…), and at the moment I am “origamily” (for lack of real word) clawed.

I feel good. :D

I just can't seem to get over my needle phobia… and it's frustrating to make such a spectacle of myself at the doctor's office. *sigh*

The needle is merely a figment of your imagination. Don't think about the needle since it can't possibly be real. Instead, think of something else and… AAAUUGGHH!!!

Jeez, doc! You missed that vein again!!! x_X

hmmm…crazy
————-


so apparently germans are very big assholes when it comes to making copies of their keys. BMW has to get permission from HQ in germany to have a key sent from some factory. because it reduces the likelihood of a someone stealing the car…

because the payoff of stealing a beamer isn't worth the 50 dollar deposit saying i'll bring in the title once the car's unlocked.
