So, I've started going cross-eyed and having double vision. Been like that for some time now, when I'm tired. Lately, it's been like it ALL THE TIME.

Went to the doctor's on Thursday to check it out. Was sent promptly to the neurologic department at the hospital. Was there until last night. Had all sorts of tests performed on my head. And a spinal tap. They had to try it three times. It was the absolutely worst thing I've ever experienced in my life, physically.

Nothing wrong with my head/brain tough. Waiting for an appointment at the eye specialist.

Gahhh!

That's the worst.  Ever.

Just got a call from my Irish cousin who lives in Connecticut. Turns out my father (who still lives in the UK) used a rather inefficient method of sending 400 Pound Sterling to me and my sister through multiple relatives who were travelling in the general direction of New England. I'm meeting my cousin in town (she's going to be in Boston anyway) on Wednesday. I think it pretty much clinches me going to Ireland this summer. I can't take the money and not put it towards airfare.

Holy shit, Waffles. D:


Eveery time I've heard someone mention Are You Afraid of the Dark?, the episode with the pool is always, always, ALWAYS mentioned as the one that fucked them up the most, because that was a hellaciously fucked up episode.  That show was supposed to be for kids?
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

Damn, Waffle. I hope whatever is wrong gets fixed quickly and painlessly.

I absolutely love Are You Afraid Of The Dark?. The episode that messed me up the most as a kid was the Tale of the Shiny Red Bicycle, the one about the kid's friend who got trapped in a river, drowned, and then haunted him. That episode is why I'm apprehensive around dams.

Funny enough though, a while back I watched the episode again to see if it was as scary as I remembered it, and it's actually a nice story about friendship.

Have you watched R.L. Stine's A Haunting Hour?  A lot of the episodes come close to being on the same level as AYAOTD. Some of the episodes are generic kid/teen horror, but a lot of them have fantastic/scary fridge logic that left me with the same impresion as AYAOTD, as far as not believing they'd do that in a kid's/teen's show.

I, uh, tend to avoid scary shit.  It wasn't until a few years ago that I could watch a scary movie without throwing up, but I still get the paranoia of "WHAT IF THAT SHIT IS REAL IM NEVER SLEEPING AGAIN EVER" even though I know better.  At least for the genuinely scary stuff.  I can get through the hokey things.

I've only ever seen 3 movies that I actually considered scary, and Poltergeist doesn't really hold up when you watch it again now.

Play Misty For Me is my sleeper pick for HOLY FUCK TERRIFYING, possibly (probably) because of a lifetime of ignoring Rule #3.

But the scariest movie of all time? Fuck you if you don't think Aliens is some paralyzingly frightening shit. I saw that movie in the theater when it came out (I was 9 and my mom thought I was seeing some dumb kid movie) and I swear I didn't sleep with the lights off for a week. And it's the only movie that's possibly gotten even scarier as I get older because there are so many LAYERS of horror there and the best ones aren't even comprehensible to a little kid.

At least I get to wear an eye patch until it is fixed.

I've never heard of Play Misty For Me, but I'm definitely going to check it out. I'm always up for anything that might scare me. Thank you for bringing the film to my attention!

I was disabling my webcam just now in the device manager, and found an entry called "Unknown Device."  I disabled it, and nothing happened.  Then I uninstalled it and nothing continued to happen.  WTF?
