My Phobia and "Line of Fire" :)  
I have a rather silly confession. :P I have a phobia of un-naturally large human object forms (i.e. statutes, etc. - which is why no matter how many times I go to NYC, I will never go to see the Statue of Liberty :P) Every year the huge mall across the street from my branch puts up a HUGE Santa that faces the street that I drive down to get to work every morning. Each year it seems that they put it up earlier and earlier. Well, I was driving to work this morning and... I happened to look up and see it! I can't believe that it's up already! It's not even Thanksgiving and that darn HUGE Santa was standing there looking at me. :P My palms started to get sweaty, I started to feel dizzy, and I thought I was going to pass out driving to work. :P Luckily I didn't though because I'd hate to have to tell the police that the reason I rear ended the car in front of me was because I was afraid of a HUGE Santa. ;) Pathetic but true... :P

And woo hoo! Julie Ann's new TV series is going to be premiering one week from tonight on ABC! Found a cast bio of her from the Official "Line of Fire" site here. Finally a photo with her new highlighted hair and haircut that I like so much! :) She looks absolutely wonderful and I'm so excited about her new show! :) I'm so happy that things are going so well in BOTH Kevin and Julie's careers - they've both worked so hard that they really deserve this. :)

I could totally see why that Santa would freak you out. It would freak me out too. So do clowns...

Thanks Carrie. :) It feels like a rather silly phobia for me to have and I'm reminded of it every Christmas. :P It's a shame I have to pass there on my way to work each day - maybe I should look at taking a different street? ;) It's just silly. :D Please take care and I hope your Mom is feeling better soon.

Woah...really? That was something. I never knew that? I never even bother looking at that Santa at Ala Moana. *L*

He's creepy! You should look at him at night when he's bottom-lit. :P Just thinking about it gives me the creeps! ;)

::blink blink::

When his bottom is lit????? *LOL* Okay, I gotta see that.

LMAO! Okay, I wouldn't mind seeing that myself! ;)

Crazy but one of my fondest childhood memories is of the Ala Moana Santa. I want a pic of him.

I'd look for one online and email it to you, but I might start to feel faint again. ;) And sorry, I can't bring myself to take a photo of him - I'd surely pass out then! ;)

Manchester has a giant inflatable Santa climbing the roof of the Town Hall. Very silly!
I know I shouldn't laugh, but I just had to laugh at your post, especially the bit about explaining to the police if you had rear ended the car in front:)

Oh! Now I know that I can't visit Manchester during the holidays! :D And it was a silly post and I'm glad that you found it as silly as I did. :) When I went back to re-read it, I thought it sounded a little more serious than I had expected it to be. Hope that you're having a nice week. Please take care and give Tess a *HUG* for me.

Stacey, you're so sweet! :) You've made me feel much better about my phobia! :) Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving as well. :)
