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!)


  1. 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

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

  3. 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?

  4. 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

  5. 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.

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

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

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

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

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

  14. 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

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

  16. 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?

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

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. 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.

  21. 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!

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

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

  24. 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!!

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

  26. 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.

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

  28. LOL, I thought of The Blob, too.

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

  29. 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?

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

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

  32. 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!

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

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

  34. 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.

  35. Death by Jello--deleted scenes from Saw.


  36. heeheehee!!! love it!
    i make a LOT of jello at work...
    thank goodness i don't share your fear!
