Why does it move by itself?

Doing my fears this month in case you missed day one.

Day 10: Jell-O (yes, I'm serious)


Rate on the scary scale from 1-10: 2

Before you guys start thinking I'm crazy... no wait, you probably already think that. Hmm... nevermind.

Jell-O more or less fascinates me and freaks me out all at the same time. Any of you seen Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs? HILARIOUS movie, but that one scene when they play in the big Jell-O mold kinda scares me.

You're all laughing aren't you? I'm laughing at myself! But like, the girl does a cannonball into the Jell-O and totally gets stuck there. How does she get out???? It never shows it! She does... I mean, this is a kid's show, but how??? Seems to me more like something off of Final Destination.

Death by Jell-O.


That and I don't know how it works. Like how is a solid and a liquid? And why the heck does it move without you even touching it? Yipes!

Now, it's low on the scary scale because I can eat it and bam, problem solved. Best way to eat Jell-O? Sucking it through a straw. Yes, I still do that as an adult. I also blow bubbles in my chocolate milk. Don't judge.

Okay, so I'm posting in two places again today. If you'd like to see my post on jealousy (I totally sang that as I typed it.) travel to THIS HERE LINK. (I said that with an accent. I write all my posts out loud. Again, no judging!)

Before I only feared Jell-O when I knew it would be one of the only things I could eat before or after a procedure. However, now that you've mentioned the possibility of "death by Jell-O," I will also sleep with the light on tonight! Julie

Laurita said...

I laughed out loud at the title of your post. :)

Don't ever watch the movie The Blob then--and I mean the cool original from 1958 with Steve McQueen. That was one of my favorites in my younger years.

Beware of The Blob, it creeps
And leaps and glides and slides
Across the floor
Right through the door
And all around the wall
A splotch, a blotch
Be careful of The Blob
(This song is gonna play in my head all day now)

Did I give you the heebie jeebies?

Kyra Lennon said...

Calling it Jell-O weirds me out! It's called jelly over here! :D

It is kind of an interesting thing though, but I never thought about it before. I'm too busy eating it! :D

Mara Rae said...

LOL, Cassie you crack me up. I don't eat Jell-O (or anything with gelatin in it) because I'm a vegetarian. And if you don't already know what gelatin is, look it up. Then you'll really have a reason to be afraid.

Cristina said...

no way, best way to eat it is as a Jell-O shot! yum!!!!

Jack said...

Jell-O? LOL You're too much, Cassie! ;)

elizabeth seckman said...

What creeps me out about jello is the rumor that it's made from bones. But I ignore that and eat it anyway. Also not turned away by red slime. I have the fortitude to survive a nuclear holocaust.

Joshua said...

Jell-O? Really now? Oh, honey...

JoLynne Lyon said...

Your Jell-O phobia is completely justified. Not only is it weird, it's made of animal protein and then it's sugared- and colored-up! I decided a long time ago I wasn't having it in my pantry, but every time I see it at somebody else's house I load up on the Jell-O and whipped cream.

Tasha Seegmiller said...

I'm not frightened of Jello, but I find it absolutely repulsive. It doesn't help that my husband likes to smoosh it all up and suck it through a straw. Just disgusting.

Young@Heart said...

Now I know what to get you for your birthday!!!

Juliana L. Brandt said...

You know, the whole it's-made-out-of-hooves is what freaks me out the most. Ick ick ick.

Morgan said...

Ha! Cass, do I need to shake my head again????

Girl, it's now my life goal to hang out with you. Truth. Can't wait! :D

Emily R. King said...

LOL! Oh, Cassie Mae. You kill me. :)

Jenny S. Morris said...

HAHAHAHAHAH. That's all.

Lurv you!

Robin said...

I've been cracking up at your posts all month. Great idea for your A to Z challenge. And yes, watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs I didn't have the awe factor my kids did. I kept thinking-how do they breathe? It's too much jello to eat to get out. And are they getting shaken to death?

S. L. Hennessy said...

I've always refused to eat jello. It seems...ominous somehow. No idea why.

Ruth Josse said...

Yeah, jello is weird. I totally agree about the whole Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs thing. Not only was she stuck, but how did she BREATHE! Suffocating.

Leigh Covington said...

I'm glad it's low on the scale. What you need to do is make some jigglers and just have fun with it! Jello is Oh-So-Yummy!

TS Hendrik said...

Jell-o is scary. Don't tell me it's not ominous when the commercial menacingly declares "there's always room for jell-o." Because that seems like an impossibility. Unless there's some evil at play.

Johanna Garth said...

So funny! The wiggles of jello don't bother me but the horse hooves do. I think it has horse hooves in it...isn't that right? Hope I'm not spreading horrible misinformation!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Jello is my friend. And a great partner with vanilla ice-cream. This post was funny and a jello fear is insane.

Cortney Pearson said...

I can only eat jello if its with whip cream. And that part freaked me out in that movie too. Weirdness!

Laura Marcella said...

Hello, Cassie! This is the second post I've read about scary Jell-O, LoL! I've never liked it much anyway!

Yogurt is the food that grosses me out. It's like milk gone totally wrong- thick and smelly and gross. But then again I'm not a big fan of milk either. I like milk for cereal, and sometimes with chocolatey desserts, but that's it! But I can't stand yogurt, which is too bad since it's healthy for you. Oh well!

Hope you're having a great week and happy A to Z!!

Emily Moir said...

It is odd how jell-o moves by itself, but I always found that to be one of the fun things about jell-o.

Cassie Mae said...

Suzi: Oh I've seen The Blob! It made me laugh and scared the pee out of me all at the same time!

Kyra: haha, jelly is something else over here :)

Mara Rae: Um... not sure if I want to! Yikes!

Jack: Yes, look at that girl! She's totally stuck in it!

Juliana: ACK!! What???

Sheena: Oh I've never tried it with ice cream. i think I may have to.

Laura: See! I'm totally not the only one!

I always freeze my yogurt before I eat it. Then it's more like a popsicle.

Emily: I can totally picture you enthralled by the way it moves, lol.

Donna K. Weaver said...

And people can get drug now using jello shots. How . . . creative.

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

LOL, I thought of The Blob, too.

I always did wonder how she got out of the giant Jell-o mold, too.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

What about Jello-like substances? Have you ever seen Better Off Dead? The scene where Lane's dinner creeps off his plate like Jello gone rogue?

David P. King said...

I can't say I'd want death by Jell-O, but I might make an exception for Berry flavored. :)

DL Hammons said...

I see we've returned to the irrational! :)

Daisy Carter said...

Oh, Cassie, I just adore you!

FYI, I HATE jell-o. The texture, the fact that it moves, the suspended fruit....ew! I'm not afraid of it, though - that's a new one for me!

Kelley Lynn said...

I don't like jello...its the jiggling thing.

And the fact that it tastes like nothing...haha

Cassie Mae said...

David: Which kind of berry? Raspberry? Strawberry? Blueberry? Boysenberry? I'm thinking if I were to be able to choose the flavor I was gonna die in I'd go for the least weird color. Like there's no way would I want to die in green jell-o.

Emily White said...

Death by Jello--deleted scenes from Saw.

LOL!

vic caswell (aspiring-x) said...
