I had crab-salad sandwich and some of my spicy grilled jumbo tiger shrimp for supper. Mmm! Gotta say, I love that shrimp, though it's pretty high on some peoples' "fear list" due to the habanero content of the basting sauce.

Am I weird if I think those giant coconut crabs are cute?

I don't think your views on coconut crabs are necessarily related to whether we think you're weird. :biggrin:

I wouldn't fear those crabs, but oddly, their bodies look like a primitive brain shape to me!

I can actually understand the textures thing. It's not a fear for me, but every once in a while, I encounter something with a texture that just makes me shudder a bit. I'm not going to run away and not work with it, but I also can't always control that shiver that runs down my spine when I look at it.

A guy I work with has a similar reaction to tape. You know the sound and feel it has when you pull tape off a roll? He can't stand that, and will do his best to avoid using tape if he can.
