Phunny Phobias

Courage is not the lack of fear but the ability to face it."
---- Lt. John B. Putnam Jr. (1921-1944)

While trying to find out what it is called to have a fear of crowds (Demophobia or Agoraphobia), which I think my grandma has, I found all these silly phobias.

Ablutophobia- Fear of washing or bathing.
Anuptaphobia- Fear of staying single (i only put this here b/c I think some people on my flist have this)
Cyberphobia- Fear of computers or working on a computer
Didaskaleinophobia- Fear of going to school.
Ecclesiophobia- Fear of church
Ephebiphobia- Fear of teenagers
Ithyphallophobia- Fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis
Japanophobia- Fear of Japanese
Meteorophobia- Fear of meteors
Nomatophobia- Fear of names.
Paraskavedekatriaphobia- Fear of Friday the 13th
Pentheraphobia- Fear of mother-in-law. (Novercaphobia)
Phobophobia- Fear of phobias
Wiccaphobia: Fear of witches and witchcraft
Xanthophobia- Fear of the color yellow or the word yellow

I am not making fun of anyone who have these, I just think they are kinda funny.

Witching Wands

I was telling my mom all about a wand I found on the internet. I told her it was a pretty good wand and the creator had a small business and that some of her wands were only $13. Well my mom started yelling at me about how expensive that was and how stupid it was to buy that for that price. Then I told her about my friends who have paid $35 to $80+ on wands and my mom still went on and on. Any way she was unimpressed. This is the same reason why I am not going to "Witching Hour". My mom practically had a fit when I tried to tell her about it. I guess she has no problem if the activity I'm doing is in the state or somewhat inexpensive. Which I understand, and makes sense. But c'mon. I don't see the problem with the $13 dollar wand. I almost bought a plastic one at Target for $6. So now I'm going to try and make one out of a woden dowel. It won't be as cool as everyone else's, but I'll finally have a wooden wand.
