Id like to tell you about my phobias, they are a bit weird but I think that reflects the concept of "phobia" especially specific phobias. Specific phobias are defined as a persistant or unreasonable fear of an object, situation or the anticipation of these things. I suffer from aerophobia (fear of flying) which I think is quite normal but then things get weird. I also suffer from bananaphobia (fear of bananas) I cannot watch anyone eat a banana or eat anything banana related myself, and the last one I suffer from Kinemortophobia (fear of the undead/zombies) sometimes in the dead of night I wake up and have the unrational idea that there may be zombies on the landing, lets take a minute because I know this is going to sound bad.. but the only way I can get back to sleep is to wake up my wife and ask her to check but my reasoning is : If she can help me get over my gamophobia then she can help me with this!

Things to do when your unemployed #1

I've found an interesting thing to do when your unemployed and sitting at home. Take the batteries out all your cell powered appliances in your house/flat (remote controls, game console controllers, radon detectors etc) and check the little power bar. I don't know why I didn't do this sooner after all someone took the time to design a battery that you check the remaining power of so why not use it, unless there is an easier way of finding out when your batteries are empty...

Well things are certainly starting to look up! After showering the local towns with my C.V. only this week I was suprised when I sudddenly received a phone call from a prospective employer to set up an interview whilst riding as a passenger in a car that I never remember being that loud before. After putting the phone down and massaging my ear a little it brought a smile to my face and bad interview jokes to mind, I'm sure it's going to be fun.....

I'm unemployed so not suprisingly I find myself with alot of time on my hands and while I'm trying to fill it constructively its not easy. Back when I still had a job I weaned my self off my caffine dependancy so now there is nothing to blame my irritability on, I've started to think maybe I should spend this time of inertness to restart the dependance by starting a line of caffine based treats, E.G : Sweet Coffee Bread (you've got to start with the basics), Latte Jelly (I've already tried this and it works), Coffee Popcorn (thank you F) and if I remain unemployed for long enough Coffee Dress Shirts (it's a dress shirt with a plastic lining that you can fill with coffee). I don't have a brand name yet but like I said "I have plenty of time on my hands"

*blog update* Tried the coffee dress shirt.... maybe i shouldn't have used boiling coffee... time to break out the sudacream
