30 for 30: Day 7

Wearing # 25, 28, 29
See all my 30 for 30 posts.

Random confession:

I am terrified of killer whales.

At the end of 2009 we went to SeaWorld San Diego and we saw the killer whale show and I thought, "A. This show is lame and B. Those things are HUGE with big pointy teeth. There is not enough money in the world to get me in that water."

After the show we were going down the enclosed walkway over the tanks and one of the whales was right below us resting its head on the side of the tank. There was a seagull trying to get a fish out of the whale's mouth and this kid was like, "Look mommy! The whale and the bird are playing!"

But I KNEW. They were not playing. That whale was trying to LURE the seagull with fish. The bird knew it and never got quite close enough, but if it did? Bye bye birdie.

After that I started occasionally having nightmares about creepy killer whales and their sneaky ways.

AND THEN that whale killed its trainer. And my weird killer whale paranoia turned into full on terror.

So today I was reading a travel article about vacationing in Alaska and how you can kayak with sea lions! and otters! and you might even see some killer whales!

And that is why I will never kayak in Alaska. EVER.

I'm so hot. I was showing Aaron Stinky's new thing. He stretches his legs as far apart as they'll go and says, "Look, Ma! I big!" It's hilarious. And yes, he calls me "Ma." I kind of hope that one passes.


  1. Did you get your hair cut? It looks shorter to me?

  2. i was there for that sea world trip! hooray for tagging along on family vacation :)

  3. That's so funny! Glad to know the show was lame ... recently moved to San Diego and have been thinking about going to Sea World but perhaps not now. Cute outfit!

  4. SO creepy you posted about killer whales because I had a dream last night Tim and I were trapped somewhere and we had to dive in and swim somewhere and there were dolphins and killer whales and I just COULD NOT JUMP IN for fear. And then they pushed me in and I held my knees to my chest so I would touch any whales at the bottom of the ocean and then I touched one and it was all slimy. Yikes.

  5. i am seriously terrified of the ocean. the whole thing. who KNOWS what's hiding down there... and whales are SO scary.
