So, I've decided to become the next Tony Stewart. I'm entering the rubber-burning, bumper-banging world of racecar driving! If Frankie Muniz can race cars, why can't I? I don't have a sweet ride like Frankie does yet, since I'm not a rich celebrity and I don't have a driver's license, so I'm starting out by racing in a soapbox derby.

I ordered a soapbox car kit last week and I'm going to start putting together my new wheels this weekend. This means my racecar driving career should be hitting high gear sometime in the next month or so. Soapbox racing may seem slightly lame compared to the high-octane machines the NASCAR crews are driving - but I've got to start somewhere. Soapbox derby this year, go-karts next year, the checkered flag at the Daytona 500 in 2014!

Speaking of fast cars, there's a couple of cool racing flicks I'm looking forward to seeing this summer. Cars is an animated movie about stock cars and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby has Will Ferrell starring as a rebel NASCAR driver. I saw previews for both of them at the theater last week and they look pretty funny. So, between building cars, racing cars, and watching cars, my summer will be filled with plenty of driving action. Maybe, I'll change by name to Slick Lightning. Anyway, gotta fly... your summer plans.

Later,
Simon

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried

    She isn't jealous she is just dissappointed that you chose to get lessons when she did to get better . She had to get better to catch up to you so you can enjoyher as your best friend. Then you went ahead and got lessons as if you needed them. She is just upset that you showed off a talent that she didn't have. And she tried to get better to impress you but you got better as well. Which kept her at the stage she will always be at my best friend sings way betyer than me but I try.

    It may be hard but break it down to them we aren't friends but we can be associates. It may leave them a bit dissappointed but tell them we aren't in the same category to be as close as friends.
