  1. I need to go to that country. People think I’m nuts for being afraid of dogs. They also equate with me hating dogs. I don’t hate them, I’m just afraid of them.

    • You aren’t nuts for being afraid of dogs. I’ve been bitten twice by dogs. But I have two and love dogs very much anyway. They were imprinted on me when I was an infant, and they make me very happy.

      • I don’t know about that. A dog is a huge commitment. If your goal is just to get over a fear, you don’t need to go so far as getting a puppy. Go to a park and watch some dogs. Then maybe visit with a friend who has a dog–not some yappy annoying dog but a calm friendly dog. Maybe watch a show about how to handle dogs so you know what to do if you do have a problem with a dog. Fear is usually because you don’t know what to do. You might find it worthwhile to get over the fear. You don’t necessarily need a dog. :-)

      • I know. My friends seem to think that’s the cure. I want a dog as much as I want a hole in my head.

  2. I learned that paying to have motor mounts replaced on a 2006 Altima is hella expensive.

    I like your surprising news more. Somebody should do a fictional work of “non-fiction” detailing some bizarre culture-specific beliefs (which, to repeat, would be entirely made up). A guy back in high school, I think it was, used to tell this joke which involved two or more people going back and forth along these lines: “Down on my uncle’s farm, [some outrageous fact was the case].” “Is that so? Well, down on MY uncle’s farm, [some even wackier thing used to happen].” Etc.

    (I thought sure he must have been ripping off some comedian, but a quick Google search just now has so far come up empty-handed.)

  3. Okay. I’ve got a question. Lately I’ve seen this “hella” a lot lately. Like it’s a thing. How did this get started as a thing? I don’t mind it, but I feel like I’ve missed something.

    Sorry about the Altima.

    That joke reminds me of something…but I can’t place it. Really.

  4. Rats. That “10 to the 27th power” thing didn’t work in a WordPress comment. Thanks for unknowingly letting me try it here rather than at my own place, ha.
