Things That Makes Me Sweat and Shake

There are 3 things that make me unnecessarily nervous:

1.  The “icy” warning in my car’s dashboard whenever the temperature dips below freezing. Do car manufacturers think we’re idiots? Isn’t it obvious that the roads may be icy when it’s this cold?

I know that the warning is meant to be just that: a warning. But it still makes me extremely anxious whenever I glance down at the dashboard to see this little word whilst driving in freezing conditions.

2.  A “price upon request” label on products in magazines. Especially when it pertains to items I like.

I currently don’t have a magazine on hand so I’ll make do with this painting by Jan Christensen.

It can be mildly annoying and a bit depressing. And a big SCREW YOU to us normal folks who can’t afford $5,000 bags.

I’m not sure why seeing the indeterminate price label makes me so nervous…perhaps I get apprehensive merely imagining the ridiculously high number?

3. This one is a recent anomaly.

So I got a new phone this week. Since my old cell could not handle many of the popular games, I was delighted to be able to play games on my phone again, and to discover that there’s a whole slew of mobile phone games on which I have been missing out. (Hence the lack of posts this week. Sorry about that.)

Take Candy Crush, for example. What a well-designed little game (for the players, as well as the developer by way of cash from those who NEED the extra advantage RIGHT NOW)! And as many of you probably know already, HOLY CRAP IT’S ADDICTING!

But yeah. Whenever I reach a new level and see that it is a “Get ______ points in __ seconds!” kind, my hands immediately start shaking. I know that these types of levels are usually pretty easy. But seeing that little timer counting down to zero at the bottom left of the screen makes my heart beat faster and faster with each second.

What about you guys? Is there currently anything in your lives that makes you unnecessarily nervous?

    LOL, number 3 made me smile and nod in agreement. I play Jewel Mania on my phone, and I’ve been stuck for weeks on a level requiring me to get 90,000 points in 40 moves.

  2. I just got the Plants vs Zombies game on iphone. I love this game on desktop so when I saw it was free for a short while I DLed it. It makes me anxious. It’s silly. It’s just a game but I LOVE IT! :D

    I have been stuck on level 65 for almost a month now. I’m ready to toss in the towel.
    Plants vs Zombies is great but I beat that game in a day.
    Could you do a small review on your Note2? I’m thinking of getting it but I’m not sure if I’d prefer that over the iPhone5.
