Not BOO. More like boo hiss.

In my previous apartment there was a week where I was wondering if Casper was messing with me. Pictures in different rooms just started dropping off the walls, not all at once, but always when I was there alone. Then the glass globe over the ceiling light fixture detached and literally floated to the floor in a graceful arc. That was the end of it, although a couple friends offered to provide an exorcism.


I've been in this newer place for three years. Two days ago, while I was doing some bookkeeping, there was a loud popping noise as a large decorative wicker tray dropped off the wall. Ten minutes ago there was a loud bang as a wooden fish-shapped serving tray flew three feet straight out from the wall before dropping to the floor. The nails that held it to the wall are still there, and the piece is still intact.

Given the heavy rightwing presence in this community, I'm thinking I've managed to piss off some republican ghosties. Spooky, but kinda satisfyingly cool. Heh.

2. Wow!

I've heard Republican Ghosts love the smell of freedom -- I say it's time for some pachouli mixed with other mind freeing smoke.

4. Strange stuff in Utah for me

Then when my old TV screen magnetized, I realized I was dealing with advanced technology, not that I ever believed it was supernatural.

5. Forgot to mention --

About a week ago I got home from a meeting and there was a photograph of some children displayed on the television screen. No text, just the photo. I thought I'd forgotten to turn the TV off, but when I clicked the remote the thing turned on and the photo went away. Beats me.

6. It sounds quite reasonable to describe your situation as spooky.

7. I guess you should stick to wicker and cloth wall hangings

and other nonbreakable stuff. Plastic dishes and glassware, metal bakeware, and other things an angry two year old of a poltergeist can't destroy.

Or the rats in the walls can't push nails out and destroy....

Or you're in Oregon and just felt that big quake just off the coast...

9. Believe me, rats can cause a lot of strange happenings.

Check with an exterminator to see if that is the problem. Rats caused me a lot of headaches. Once I hired an exterminator, he killed 19 rats that had eaten through my walls, eaten wiring (which cost me over $1000 to repair) and drove me crazy with the scratchings in my walls. I do not think you have any supernatural beings in your house.

11. I lived in Boston, I know rats

and the damage they can do. That's why I mentioned it.

12. Was there?

I'm in CA near Pismo Beach, but I felt something, ever so slight but yet like a slip, while I was on the computer.

17. 5.1, off the Oregon coast and pretty shallow, 9.9Km

I only know about it because I have eQuake installed on Firefox and my screen gave a pretty good shimmy.

18. I should install that considering I live in quake country.

I doubt if I could have felt it all the way down here, but sometimes quakes can be felt for hundreds of miles. It depends on which faults are slipping.

8. are you worried

concerned, frightened or what? These events are somewhat unusual and occurring to you too frequently.

10. Find a Native American medicine man or woman and get them to smudge the place

with sage. If it's Caspar, most likely he'll be gone. If it continues then more earthly problems are in play. You may need to test the ground underneath you for the possibility of sink holes developing.

19. Hmmmmmm...

One of my family members would suggest you unknowingly "picked up" a spirit, and it's sticking with you, even when you move. It might be best to ignore it.

But I like the sage-smudging idea too, as well as a blessing in the place. Then wait and see if it gets better or worse.
