Things That Scare Me Today

Happy Halloween, y'all.

Unlike last year's big to-do, this year I'm maintaining a low profile (see above illustration). But I would be remiss if I didn't do something to celebrate one of my favorite holidays, so I bring you the 6 Things That Scare Me:

  1. People I don’t even know trying to become my friend on Facebook.
  2. People still wearing those “Live Strong” bracelets.
  3. Killers who lure victims to their home via fake Craigslist ads. Guess I’ll be buying a TV via the old fashioned way, then.
  4. Celine Dion appearing on my Pandora Radio. (If you’re not familiar with Pandora, it is an online radio station where you tell it what bands and songs you like, and it populates your playlist with songs based on your recommendations and a complex algorithm.)
  5. Senator Larry Craig, specifically that he is still a Senator.
  6. Backfat (specifically mine).

Ha ha! Those things are much scarier than the shit that goes around at Halloween, especially no.1.

Love the card ;)

That's why I always have my heat on me when doing anything from CL.

No Solid Gold Dancers?!? Then again, this year I was a total suck ass too.

Not being able to get the fake blood I used for my costume off is what scares me because the package said it was NOT safe for children and should NOT be ingested...

People who wear a visor underneath of their hair-do like it's a headband scare me. Wait, no. It's just people who wear visors that scare me.

I'm afraid of the over-abundance of fleece at Old Navy.

You're number 6 made me laugh!

Hey thanks for sharing the Pandora link. I'll be checking it out as soon as I finish this comment. The radio stations here suck ass.

Something that scares me is when women wear headbands that cover their ears in Singapore. WTF? It's 95 degrees!

Well sonofa...! Pandora cannot allow access to people outside the U.S. I'm disappointed.

"Killers who lure victims to their home via fake Craigslist ads."

Am I screwed up because this one made me laugh out loud?

if Celine Dion ever showed up on my Pandora, i'd have to throw my PC out the window. i work too hard to keep my stations pure.

I know you and you keep rejecting me on facebook. Why you gotta be like that [C]R?

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

I don't know about you nerds, but I had Halloween was a hootenanny for The Good Doctor.

In fact, I'm posting about it right now. I'm inspired . . .

Okay, not right now, because I have a volleyball game in a bit, but soon.

Mr. Shain said...

you were trying to maintain a low profile huh? did that involve binding the man-boobs?

ReckenRoll said...

Wait - did Gancer just use Cherryride to blatantly advertise his own blog posting? Are we allowed to do that?

READ ME! READ ME!

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Oh, we're allowed . . .

In all fairness, Reck, I was inspired right then and there.

I swear!
