Ghost stories…

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

… Blame it in the solar eclipse… blame it on the super moon… blame it on something, but my house has been the scariest place to live for the last several days.  I know I told ya'll on Sunday that I'd fill you in on the spooky stuff that's been going around over here, but I got home late last night from helping a friend move to Korea (!!!) and it was dark and I was alone and I really wanted to get a solid night's sleep without a ton of intervention from the paranormal, soooooo… I had to wait until the sun came out! 

 Here we go: 

It all started on Friday, aka the Spring Equinox, aka Freaky Friday due to the crazy celestial goings on. I wanted to watch the solar eclipse, so I made myself a pinhole projector from the potato pancake box my breakfast came in, poured myself a Jameson and ginger and holed up in my bedroom with the window open.  Now, I was home alone at this time, as it was my day off and to loophole my whole drinking alone thing, I justified it because there are ghosts in my house.  I can't find the last post in which I wrote about said ghosts, but they're there.  I'm pretty sure. 

Anyway, the day went on as per usual until I decided to switch the laundry before taking a nap and discovered that the washing machine (containing 3 bath towels, 1 hand towel, 1 washcloth and a rather small quantity of soap) had overflowed.  There were bubbles everywhere. And no reason for it to have happened.  No matter… cleaned it up and got down with my nap.  All was normal until the sun set and in closing my bedroom window, I happened to see some flashing orange lights coming from behind my bed.  I tried to explain it as a reflection, light coming in from outside, some electronic, but based on where my bed is, the reflection and outside light thing isn't logical and there was nothing plugged in back there.  As I got ready to go out to dinner, I thought I felt something run through my hair.  There is a hook in the slanted ceiling that I sometimes brush up against, but I wasn't anywhere close to that.  Needless to say, I took an extra short time getting ready, and extra long time out at dinner… and gelato… and drinks… and slept with the lights on.   

Ok… Saturday morning was bright, if not sunny, and I really appreciated the daylight… until the power went out.  My landlord was over and came right in the fix it, but couldn't explain why the power had gone out.  He proceeded to mess with the heating system, which was great, until the sun set and all the radiators started clanging and banging so hard that the upper level of my house was shaking.  

I had to sleep over at a friend's house… where we proceeded to watch Ghost Hunters International until 2 AM, which is totally counter-intuitive, since I left my scary house to go watch people investigate scary houses, but whatever.

Now, my heat is out again.  Poltergeist action, what?

    1. Must be the ghosts! It's crazy… now that I'm not alone, I've had zero issues. Lightbulbs that had gone out while I was alone are suddenly working again and no one has touched them!

  6. Yay, ghost stories! Although, I'm sorry you've had to deal with it home alone! I've just finished catching up with the latest Ghost Adventures episodes; I can't get enough of the paranormal. I'd love to go ghost-hunting! Very cool outfit, by the way. :) xxx
