Anatidaephobia.Birds.and.the.Placebo.Effect.

Anatidaephobia.Birds.and.the.Placebo.Effect.

Okay, I admit it. I am an anatidaephobic. An anatidaephobic has an irrational fear that somehow and somewhere in the world there is a duck watching them. o.O Yeah, your right, I’m not really that bad. Yet. I just think its a really cool word. I can’t imagine the person who decided to throw those letters together, they were probably paid by the letter. I’m not sure what brought up this topic, I think its because when I walked out this morning to begin the drive to work, the birds were going crazy. It was actually a little chillier than usual today, about 55F degrees. I suppose the birds were determined to force Spring to occur by singing catchy little tunes. I don’t know, it worked on me, I was mighty tempted to call into work with the “intentional” Spring flu. But then I was always easy to sway, as you can imagine when I was in highschool I got a lot of the “if your friends jumped off a bridge would you?” lecture from my mum. Which brings me to the take from. I know! I got here fast today! Having the fear you are being watched isn’t really irrational, at most points when you are in public you don’t suffer from invisibility and its not just the birds watching you, it’s people like me, watchers and thinkers. But if you move about the world with a positive demeanor, your head high, your shoulders back, a smile on your face, you know what? Something happens and you begin to actually feel more positive and happier, it’s called the placebo effect. Your brain is one of the most powerful things in the universe, it’s powers are still somewhat of a mystery. However, it is known that sometimes just believing in it’s ability to change your perception makes it possible to do so. You just have to believe it possible.

I’m at kind of an impasse this week, like I said, I don’t want to be at work, I don’t want to be in Second Life, I want to be outdoors watching as Spring sneaks it’s way in. But I am also in a temporary holding pattern waiting for the Fashion For Life’s “Tribute to Galliano Couture” Inspired show that will be held Saturday at 10:AM SLT. It is the last runway show for the Relay for Life-American Cancer Society event and I’ve seen the outfit I will wear and it is divine! If you want to be one of the first to purchase the incredible “Lolly” gown from *SoliDea FoliEs* there will be vendors available at the show. If you want to come and heckle a Lil Cao on the runway, I’d like that too. A lot. So if you get a chance, come on over. And don’t forget to bring that “we’re number one foam finger” you have tucked away. I want you there so bad, I’ve even included the taxi for you: Taxi:
