things that scare me

a new low--I scared myself reading a *review* of The Grudge.

Let me put this in some kind of context.

Like this isn't one of my defining characteristics, The Ring scared the bejeezus out of me and still does. All I really need is someone to mention it on my friendslist, adn boom, I'm there. In the terror zone. The movie, It? Made for TV? Scared me. Not the ending. All that stalking adn freaky things slowly happening that no one else could see. I think there's some kind of metaphor of my fear of future insanity in this, but I'm not sure.

The Grudge, unviewed, is having a similar effect on me. Actuals don't scare me nearly as badly as implications. Halloween? Scared me for a few days, and all the horror comes from that damn *walk* ,that endless, slow, plodding, relentless stalking walk. That *scared* me. but not all the time. Reading the reviews of The Grudge, where the main complaint/compliment was the atmosphere and implications adn things seen from teh corner of your eye--I'm terrified of this thing unviewed. I already know I will be under a desk thinking about it.

That is just so sad.

I also read a review of Saw. I know I won't ever go see that, because, um, *no*. Just--no.

Yes, I am a pathetic whiney little coward. I am so unbelievably comfortable with this.

I saw this on my friendslist, from viridian5:

This is the problem with LJ, we all think we are so close, and we know nothing about each other. I'm going to rectify it. I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.


So. Is there something I *haven't* told? Cause man, i think everything but my bra size has come up in one form or another. And that's 36B, btw.

I feel your pain. Have to close my eyes when the promo of The Grudge airs - or cover my head with my bankie - whichever.

Charmin or generic?

Charmin! My backside wants comfort, darn it.

*pets* I've seen The Ring four times. It will freak me out for at least a week after. But I so want to see The Grudge. I'm just not so sure I should watch it in the theaters.

Boys or girls or both? *grins* We may have talked about that but for the life of me, I can't remember. *palms face*

*laughs* Boys. Though if Milla Jovovich turned up, it's not like I'd be kicking and screaming to be let out of the room, you know?

Well, kicking and screaming, maybe. But definitely not to leave.

What's your favorite memory from childhood?

There are a *lot*. But I can pull a happy one and use it.

My family was very extended. My grandmother was the youngest of nine children on dad's side, and she and family were relatively close, so I grew up surrounded by cousins. I mean, a lot fo them, everywhere. My best memory's kind of a conglomerate of that. It's at the lake, where my parents, my grandparents, my cousins, and my parent's close friends would have barbecues and we'd all play until we were exhausted, for hours and hours and hours. My memories of growing up for years was that--these huge groups of people and lots of playing. When we lived in Austin when I was very young, we'd go to the lake and the property the family owned every weekend with my grandparents and they'd have big parties for everyone who came down and those that lived here--everyone would fall asleep in the extra bedrooms or in sleeping bags for two nights straight and have these huge breakfasts on Sunday morning. It was wonderful, and it was close, and it was never being lonely. I miss that.

*shudders* reading the review was enough. *God*.

I'm not sure what about them gets me most, but I completely avoid that sort of movie - haven't seen a one, and have no intention of ever changing that. I can read suspenseful/scary stories and not be affected the same way as seeing it on the screen.

so, what is your favourite pair of shoes?

*g* Yeah, ther'es something about hte visual medium that's just too powerful.

Um, my new brown ones. I love heels. *hugs shoes* They are three inch and brown and close toed and pretty.

It is *so* scary! Brrrr.

So wow, this meme is like the Truth Or Dare game without the alcohol *g*.

If anyone asks me a question I woulnd't answer sober, I'm sure I can find whiskey here *somewhere*.

*grins*

If I can be truthful, Saw made me laugh so hard I though I would die of the laughter alone. No seriously, sure it's a little bloody, towards the end, but its just really funny.

And at one point I was scared of The Ring the first time i saw, but when I watched it after it came out on DVD with my mom, it wasn't that scary. Even she was disappointed, seeing as how the first time I saw it I was so scared to be left alone.

The Grudge -eh, not so scary. Ok a lot scary. But I was over it the next day. I think the reason why it was so hard to scare me was that Max from Roswell (Jason Behr) was her boyfriend and his longish hair was just too cute^_^

Keep in mind that I can get scared during Cartoon Networks' Saturday Night Sleepover, 'kay?

OMG! HE WAS?

DAMMIT! I like him! He's so *cute*. *bites nails*

I am *so* with you on The Ring. I watched it with a friend who was staying with me for a few weeks, and on the morning of the seventh day, he unplugged the TV, turned it to face the wall, draped a towel over the screen, and took the batteries out of the remote.

Just to be sure. :-)

The first time I saw it, I couldn't sleep for *four days*. I was absolutely convinced every time I closed my eyes that I'd see Samara (live Samara, not Gooey Dead Samara) standing at the foot of my bed staring down at me. Not *doing* anything, just staring through her hair.

Um, yeah. *shivers* Think I'll go cuddle my BF now. Heh.

The part of the movie that got to me the most, though, was how *sorry* I felt for her. It was just ambiguous enough when it came to her motivations that I couldn't avoid feeling for her. Even if she was evil after she died, I don't think she was beforehand. I think she was just a little girl with a gift she couldn't control.

You realize that sounds *perfectly reasonable* to me, right? Because it does.

You are making me whimper in sympathy for the girl who crawls out of TVs and scares people to death.

*admiring* You are *good*.

*still contemplating towel over TV*

i have The Ring in my vcr right at this moment...it's been there for a week, i'm trying to talk myself into watching it...i've heard from some people it was the scariest thing they've seen and i've heard from others hey, not so much......i can't even think of moving on to The Grudge until i tackle The Ring...and it may sit in that vcr for another week!!!!

I did like it, once the soul-scarring terror had, you know, faded a tiny bit.

*is encouraging*

Don't go see the Grudge if you're sensitive to scary movies. Seriously. :)

I slept with the light on for months after seeing the Ring. I wouldn't have watched it if I had known what it was, because I know I'm easily freaked out by supernatural-scary movies (gore has never done it for me). I went to see the Grudge because really, how scary could a movie with SMG in it be? But it was scary.

Really. Really. Scary. There's a noise in the movie, this creepy ass noise that I can't describe. But best you don't hear it. :)

I KNEW IT! THAT MOVIE WILL TRAUMATIZE ME FOR LIFE!

Really. Really. Scary. There's a noise in the movie, this creepy ass noise that I can't describe. But best you don't hear it. :)

Yep. That's me. Scared of sounds.

I'll just read about everyone else seeing it. And have derivative nightmares.

38D here, though I've been thinking I may have to suck up and go DD now that I'm eating like a pig. :) Represent, boobie size!

*whimpers* *SOME* of us are somewhat--not there.

*stares at bra in dissatisfaction*

Heh. We have the same bra size.
It's a good size. *g*
-Silverkyst

It is!

*feels vindicated*

NO scary movies for Me. thank you.
I got ubercreeped watching The Shining. Like I couldn't even watch the end of it ubercreeped.

Ummm, a question..... hmmm... Ok, favorite song, ever. Is hard, I know. Why I chose it. *is slightly evil*

As for those 36Bs of yours, well, that's a cup below where I would be comfortable being. Hopefully one day will have reduction to get rid of these 48DDs on my chest....

God, favorite song? Right now? Um. Probably Drops of Jupiter by Train. I write a *lot* to that song.

Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about.

Well, feel free to tell me to mind my own business, but how did you end up with Child? *shrugs* It's just one of those real-life things that I'd know more about if I knew you in a face-to-face way, so I'm curious.
