It Could Just Be Because Dolls Are Pretty Ugly

Often, girly girls like me are stereotyped as weaklings (if not brat, princessy, damsel in distress, or a bitch). Well, NEWSFLASH!!! I am none of the above mentioned. Well, the bitch part, I can sort of admit. But brat? Princessy? Damsel in distress? AND WEAKLING??? No effing way.

I'm just saying.

But let me explain.

Note: I'm not posting this to pretend or to brag about how brave I am for a small girly girl. You need to finish reading this because I will share something about me that you probably would not have expected. But just probably. You could have guessed it already because of the title but... Oh, just keep on reading and stop giving me that look!

So can I explain now?

I'm not scared of the usual things normal people are commonly scared of. For example, spiders, heights, dogs, (well my former best friend pretends to be scared of dogs, she probably thinks it makes her cute), being alone in the dark, and many other odd things. (I may need some more suggestions here. What are people usually scared of).

So anyway, first the spiders. Yes, in a way, they're irritating but most insects are. But they don't scare me. Unless of course, if it's super big and poisonous. I should be scared.

Heights - I love heights. I love high places. I'm even obsessed with roller coasters, super high Ferris wheels, and other tormenting, crazy amusement rides.

Dogs - I don't care much about dogs unless they think I'm dinner.

Being alone in the dark - I understand why most people are scared to be alone in a dark room. It's because of those ghost stories and stuff. But I'm not. Because if ever ghosts are real and they decided to show themselves to me because it's dark, I would just run. No problem. But sorry to those who feel more secure when there's light. Because if ghosts are real, they will appear no matter what. They could be looking at you right now. Look! Someone's behind you! *enter villain laughter here*

Anyway, here's a big revelation: You wanna know the only thing that scares the hell out of me? Dolls! You heard me. Those ugly, porcelain, weird looking, blinking, annoyingly smiling dolls. I hate those! (Barbie dolls and stuffed animals not included). According to my mom, I used to cry when someone shows me a doll as an infant. And when I was like 5, I was given a HUGE dancing doll as a gift and when I opened the box, my reaction was like I just saw a monster. Swear.

Well now I don't cry anymore but dolls still give me goosebumps. Even if they are just innocently displayed in one corner. Their eyes are funny. And I don't like their hair touching my skin. But I'm a lot calmer now. Unless you're really fucking evil that you would throw one to me when I'm not ready. Really, you'll regret it.

To prove a point, here's a link to the ugliest dolls I've ever seen on the Internet. Well, actually these are the only ones I've come up with because I'm lazy to look for something more terrifying. Enjoy. HERE.

I just gave you the link because I don't want those pictures on my blog, thank you.

Fear of dolls is called Pediophobia. Just in case you want to know.

In other news, I got another blog award from Ashley a.k.a. Cupcake a.k.a One Crazy Brunette Chick. But wait. There's no tagging here because according to her, "I made my own awards to distribute to only the ELITE and worthy bloggers of my choice. I MADE and personalized these awards to fit each of the awarded specifically. That means you should feel super fucking special dick-wads."


Check out her blog. Real bad ass!

  1. HOW can you not be scared of spiders? The ones in Asia are the size of dinner plates! (At least the ones in Hong Kong can be.) Even smaller ones scare the crap out of me.

    I totally get you on those dolls. I used to have this crazy baby girl doll that would close its eyes if you laid it down and open them again when it was upright. WTF!!! What kind of parents must mine be to give their little girl something so effing freaky!?!? And that link you posted - I clicked on it and read about the haunted doll painting. Thanks a lot. Now I don't know if I can go to sleep tonight.

  5. I hate dolls. I never kept the things around, because their beady little eyes stared me down.

    Now I don't think I'll be able to sleep.

  6. The link to the dolls was blocked by the Fed's firewall as "violence." I seriously almost fell out of my chair laughing!

  7. Congrats on the award!

    I myself is terrified of the dark, is not as much about ghosts as it's about the unknown. I have a crazy imagination, when it's dark and I'm alone there is no horror story as scary as the one being told in my mind..

  9. CARINA: LOL! I'm actually starting to think that I'm the weird one. You know? I have those imaginations but I ignore them. I might not be normal. ;D

    KATHERINE: Are you talking about the video? *whispers* I didn't have the guts to watch it... ;)

  10. I'm a great believer in the saying "There is nothing to fear but fear itself...."
    That said I wouldn’t want to share close proximity with a shark or anything with a larger teeth count than IQ – that includes most children and many adults

    P.S. There is no need to worry about the ghosts that you are running away from in the dark, it's the furniture that will do the damage...

  11. Dolls are pretty spooky. I remember an episode of 'Are you afraid of the dark' with some scary dolls.

    Also.. I'd have though pediophobia might be something to do with a fear of people that look like Gary Glitter :o
