Weird Fact Wednesday

The storm has passed, my town has escaped relatively unscathed and it's time for another weird fact. :)

Fact 2: Did you know that there are people in the world who suffer from Arachibutyrophobia, a "persistent and abnormal fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth"? Imagine life without peanut-butter sandwiches?!

For some reason, I already knew the above fact but while trying to find out the correct spelling, I also came across Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, which is "a persistent and abnormal fear of long words".

Any takers?

what about clinophobia (fear of going to bed) or even more interestingly gametophobia (fear of marriage). Who ever suggested it was a game?

Birthday? Birthday? You mean Nalini's getting older? No, never, I say! Never!

Belated birthday greetings chickie! Doesn't that make it the anniversary of your first sale too?

P.S. for some reason I can't log in as a blogger, won't recognise my password, so I'll just be anonymous for now ::sigh::

Bron - I'll forgive you this one time ;)

Miss Anonymous - me, get older? Not likely. I'm still getting mistaken for a Varsity student so all is well. And yup you're right, the anniversary of my first sale is the day before my birthday. :)
