So, one of my best friends, I love her, but sometimes I don't like her. Sit down kids, it's story time.
So I have about 3* best friends, two from high school, one from church. This is about the one from church. After church is over we usually take her home with us. yesterday we went to the recycling center first, which is starting to become a semi weekly ritual now, but anyway. There's this one guy that we both like looking at because he has this cool hat and boots, though it doesn't hurt that he's kinda cute. Looks kind of like a dieselpunk sometimes, which works for me, but I'm not likely to tell him this to his face. When we finished sorting out the recycling, we saw that either a regular or an employee had brought his dog, and I like dogs. And we were standing in front of the cute hat guy, And I said "The dog is cute, I mean, he's cute too, but the dog is cute." And of course, in true best friend fashion, she looks over at him and says, "Hey, My friend thinks you're cu-," at which point I start screaming no and yank her away in pure embarrassment, and of course calling attention to myself. dammit. Now she's plotting to set me up with him, but that's only story part one.
For this next bit you need to know a little about me and her. First off, I don't like the dark very much. During the daytime, I prefer the shadows, but when night comes, I would rather that the lights are on wherever I go. Most of the time the dark is actually ok, and doesn't bother me as long as I don't think of the things that could go bump in the night, unless of course I watch or read horror. Ironically, I like spooky things, but I prefer ruby gloom to the haunting.
Pretty much if I want to watch something scary I have to do it early in the day so I forget about it by the time night rolls around, Otherwise I'm skittish for weeks until I get control again. My friend is the opposite, her favorite dream is a nightmare
So anyway, we were in my room on my laptop, and she decides to show me Game Theories, for Five Nights At Freddy's, 1 and 2. Along with some songs based on both games. Because I don't like horror, and have already seen the gameplay, I will not touch Freddy's, I knew it was going to bug me. And it got dark while we were watching the videos. She thought it was funny when I got up to turn the lights on.
On top of this, I live in a creaky 90 something year old home, with three cats that have a tendency to stay outside my door at night, making noise periodically. And while normally I would sleep in my loft bed, which helps lesson my panic, (monsters can't get you from 6 feet up, according to childish brain logic) I sprained my knee at the end of last year, so my mom put my mattress on the floor, which means I am in the danger zone. So I pretty much stayed up until almost three last night before remembering that I had christmas lights under my bed (thank you mom.)
I feel better now, rant over.
