interview with lisa noble
i wanted to interview my friend lisa noble because she is a fascinating member of blogciety and i think one of the great minds of this or any decade. she makes coffee for a living but is a skilled writer by night. also she's really weird. we sat down for a chat recently on aim, and i decided to talk about being scared, as this is a situation i often find myself in:
(IHTFB) so what would u say is the scariest thing that ever happened to u?
(lisa) im done. cant think og anythign
u suck. wors interview ever.
yoir the worst inttertvie ev
why dont you actually try to think of something instead of being a rag doll clump
nuthin that scarys happened to me
nothing ever happened that freaked you out and you thought there was gona be a ghost or monsters or something?
once i fell into a wall really hard when my brother was trying to hypnotize me, but that wasnt really scary...it just hurt a lot
or like scary men with feely hands on the subway?
oh shit yeah! ihad some childhood fears...i just thought you meant like getting run over by cars
well anything super scary stories
i used to sleep on top of the covers because i thought scorpians were going to be hiding in my sheets
cause i lived in georgia where there were lots of bugs and my house was kind of embedded in the woods
were you scared a lot growing up?
yeah but i think most of my fears were/are irrational...or at least implausible for the most part
how do you reconcile the implausibility with the ongoing fear if you know its baloney?
whats your biggest fear right now?
what sort of apocalypse?
usually earth being demolished by an asteroid or comet
why do you think that is?
i feel like we're due for another one
are you crippled by your fears?
no. except i dont light candles because im afraid my apartment will burn down. but other than that... i dont think so. i mean im definitely scared of a lot of things
what advice would you give to people who are scared all the time?
well most fears i usually only think about when applicable. for instance im scared of buses tipping over when they turn the corner. and i definitely think about it every time i see it happen...but i feel like thats some form of prevention in itself
i guess because alot of fears are random and mostly have to do with the unexpected freak-accidents in life...at least for me. so if you expect the unexpected... it probably wont happen.
i think that about wraps it up. thanks lisa!
i suck. actually ive written an essay about this exact topic before
