What condition my condition was in...

Okay, so I don't know if any of you remember my thanking some random unknown person for sending me a Troi action figure that I received around my birthday. I had assumed that it was a birthday gift, but had ZERO idea as to who I got it from or why they picked a Star Trek doll, as I never once mentioned being a Trekky in any of my posts (because, well.. I'm not. I mean, I like the show and wouldn't mind watching all of them some day, but I'm not a die hard fan at all.)

Anywell, I discovered via reading my friends list that I received it because I had signed up for some contest on the free stuff community, and apparently, I won. Nifty. It's a neat looking doll (sorry, ACTION FIGURE) and I like owning really random things.

I come home this evening to find a package from the same company, Diamond Toys. (Truth be told, when I received the first one, because it was in a non descript padded envelope, said DIAMOND TOYS on it, and due to the shape and weight, I was quite convinced that someone had sent me a vibrator for my birthday. Oh, darn.) I open it up and YAY! I am now the proud owner of a Jack O'Neill action figure! Stargate is SO much more up my alley. Sort of sad that it wasn't a Daniel Jackson doll, but I'll take what I can get. Actually, a Daniel doll might creep me out.

SPEAKING OF.

We had a CLOWN come shopping today. Full clown rainbow regalia. I couldn't even look at her and instead of ringing her up like I should have, I had to ... well, I ran away, avoiding all eye contact. My coulrophobia hath grown intensely since I saw a clown in person last. SRSLY. I, naturally, thought of talkingpotato the whole time she was there. She ended up throwing a fit about something or some rather and was at the register for a VERY long time. I thanked mah lucky stars that I hadn't offered to ring her up, because I would have been forced to stand arms length from one of my biggest fears for over ten minutes. At this point, I realized that yes, I WOULD much rather be covered in spiders than to hug a clown.

Also discovered today that one of my ex coworkers is in jail for sleeping with a 13 year old.

Clowns are way freaky. I don't blame you for running away from her.

My dearest talkingpotato has clown Tuesdays on her journal, and I can't even look at them, they freak me out so much.

I keep meaning to read Mr. King's It, but fear that it may keep me up at night ;)

Ugh SO much like a clown. I'm sorry you had to endure even being near to that kind of energy. You should really consider some clown detox program now. Being around clowns is like getting radiation poisoning! Definitely unhealthy levels of clown exposure.

Hrm, maybe that's why I no longer wear makeup? I have hit a point where my clown fear is so bad that I can't make myself over like one, no matter how subtle the hues? ;)

That seems like a completely stupid thing to do.

Yup. Apparently, everyone knew that he and his wife were having marital problems and someone said that they were fighting because her 13 year old sister was raped.. we just found out recently that it was HIM that did it.

I shudder to think of all the mental implications this will have on the poor 13 year old. I was molested once at the age of 10 by some 8th graders and one other time by a grown man at 11 and even those brief encounters caused me to have a VERY scewed sense of sex.

Her sister?

He deserves to be in jail. I also don't want to think of the years of theapy she will probably have after having your older sister's husband rape you.

No freaking doubt. Or even to be the wife and to know why your marriage ended. They had had a baby together a bit before it happened, too, I want to say a baby girl. I'll have to verify that, though.

That makes it even more tragic. a baby girl without a father..

I don't have any sympathy.

Not to mention a baby girl that may not have been safe with her father if he HAD still been around.

*nod*..

Dad's are supposed to protect.. and he wouldn't have protected her.

Absolutely. It's best that he got busted for it now, instead of when he was able to ruin more lives.

Though it would have been best if he had never done anything worth getting busted on, period.

My coworker was a 30 year old man or so. Maybe a bit younger.

No clue, I hadn't even known there WAS a quote feature!

oh and how DO you quote??

Oh, I see... hit "more options" next to the post thingie as you're typing your text, then highlight what you want quoted and hit "quote".

Troi was all cute and betazoid and stuff, but give me O'Niell anyday woohooo

Jim has a clown thing, like hatred. When my sons were little - no clowns, no clown toys or wallpaper or dolls or anything.

The previous roommates left their poetry magnetic word kit thingies on the fridge, and I arranged one to read "I have angry clown hate".

I keep meaning to take a picture of our fridge. Maybe I will one day.

Meaning to because someone on my friends list awhile back had posted for everyone to do so, and it seemed like fun.
