I was writing out response to another thread, when the computer monitor that has been sitting on my couch for over a week without a problem, fell over onto the coffee table. It scared me, since he usually makes noise on a different floor than I'm on at the time.

So, everyone wave and let him know he wasn't being ignored. :wave:

Hey Ghostie!

Are you related to the Ghosties in the SO's parents' swimming pool? That dog is always barking at them.

Maybe he's related to my ghostie who likes to move dishes around?

**waves to the ghostie** I miss having one around. My last house didn't have one nor does the place I am now. But the house I grew up in did have at least one. And I do get a few things at work in the Haunted Hotel.

Hey! Is your ghostie related to mine? Mine likes to play with my blinds. The other night, I was into a computer game, Mr. Rum was really into the show he was watching and BOOM! The blind suddenly flipped up and then fell down! :jawdrop: Yeah, we both jumped.

*waves* Hi Mis' ghostie! If you see a lady ghost in a black Victorian gown, could you tell her we miss her?

I miss having domiciles with ghosts in.

My ghostie use to play with the blinds when I was getting ready to go to sleep or woke me up with it, till I yelled at him that I was trying to sleep, so knock that shit off! He doesn't play with them anymore.

He will pace the upstairs hallway after everyone else is asleep and I'm still awake downstairs. He likes to play on the stairs sometimes too.

I have heard him playing in the hall bathroom when I was trying to sleep one night. I know it wasn't the children because none of the lights were on, which my children always turn on when they use the restroom in the middle of the night. Plus, no one was in there when I went in to check.

Dreamstalker, I'm not sure if he hangs around other ghosts or not. He will go weeks sometimes without doing anything. I often wonder what he is doing during that time.

Shpepper, we always end up with one, even if there wasn't one in the house before, because my children and I are ghost magnets, so it seems.

RedHeadPhoneGirl, I haven't known him to move dishes around. He does like to hide things for awhile and then put it back in plain sight. I think he thinks it's funny to watch us looking everywhere for something and then find it where we have already looked four to five times before.

Evil Queen, I have never heard of a swimming pool ghost, that is funny!

Hello Ghostie! If you see my white kitty (Snow) running around, could you please pet her for me?

sexiphatchick, I have always had some sort of paranormal phenomena going on around me, so I can't imagine not having a ghost or two around.

If I was suddenly without it around me I would not be happy, because it has always been around me since I was a little girl and has because as much of me as breathing.

My children are use to it for the most part, since they have always had it around them and unlike me, they never had anyone tell them that what is around them is the devil's work and evil. That they must be evil for not praying it away.

The first person who ever says something like that to my children will find out that my childrens' mother can go from sweet to I'LL DRAG YOUR SOUL TO HELL MYSELF! in less than a second.

I mean....uuhh...help me pick a name for my ghostie. The little guy use to call him the "Invisible Man" my big guy called hm "Shadow Man" My daughter calls him "Annoying" since he likes to read over her shoulder.

I actually have them at work. The place I work has several different spirits that reside there. I mostly miss having them at home.

Our "lady in black" doesn't like/is afraid of men (we have theories involving a fairly unfriendly male entity that was also seen in the house), so we think that when my grandmother's caretaker took up residence in the house she left..come to think of it, she vanished around the time we got a live-in nurse who lived upstairs. Previously the upstairs and attic was "her domain"; it's possible she didn't like all the chaos and people around all the time.

-snorts- I've had ghosts do this... It's really annoying when the pages start turning. When I figured out what was going on I'd have to say really firmly "I was not done with that page! I'll turn them when I'm ready, damnit!" They'd stop then lol.

RedHeadPhoneGirl, he reads over her shoulder when she is on the computer, not just reading a book. She would freak if she was reading a book and the pages started turning without her doing it herself.

The children have all seen him as an outline or a gray shadow. My husband and I have never seen him. Trust me, if my husband saw him, my husband would FREAK! I would probably be startled, but not completely freaked out, unless our ghostie was hideous. :lol:

We have a couple of ghosts where I work, but I don't really notice them that much till after most of the day shift has left for the day. There is one female spirit that I hear sobbing in the ladies room sometimes late at night, but I have only seen her as a quick glance, just enough to know she has dark hair.

I have seen out of the corner of my eye people walking down the row, but when I look over there is no one there. I have stopped looking over, since most of the time there is no one there when I look.

We have one we have named Bob. He keeps nicking our things but is mostly harmless.

One thing I have noticed with him is than when I'm alone (I get nervous still after being burgled 7 years ago or so) that he'll walk about or push doors to let me know that I'm not alone. Sometimes he'll move things to see if I notice :lol:

The fun thing is that when my hubby moved in he kept a reasonably low profile until the day he nabbed my sisters phone. We figured she had just put it somewhere and hubby rang it to find out where it was. It fell out of thin air in front of him! Now even hubby blames Bob for nicking our stuff. :roll:

Still hasn't given us back our flash drives though :rolleyes:

We have a lady who walks up and down the front stairs of our building. We believe she's going to and from what once was the parlour of the house, before it was turned into an apartment building. There is also an angry ghost in the back stairwell (servants stairs), and I won't go in the basement thanks to the ghosts down there (used to be slave quarters). I can't quite tell about the ghost in our apartment, as mostly i just hear knocking on the walls, and dishes moving around. Oh, and our cat will lay in the hall between the living room and bedroom, and jump up like someone's pulled his tail, or stepped on it...

My mom and grandmother had both seen the ghost before I was born. Mom thought it was nothing, until I reported seeing her. All three of our descriptions matched (I had not been told of the ghost before I first saw her).

What was interesting were the respective reactions to the lady in black:

Grandma: scared, probably thought she was an evil spirit
Mom: initially scared, then realized she didn't mean anyone any harm
Me: waved and said hi :angel:

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to try any EVP work in the attic before the live-in nurses started (they lived upstairs, so I was never allowed up there). Mom thinks she does know the lady's name though.

I had a ghostie that I named Bob too! He wasn't nice though... that house was horrible to live in. It wasnt anything he did outright, the house just had a very nasty feeling to it. My cats would bolt out the back door as soon as I opened it.

Bob liked to pace back and forth in the area between the living room and kitchen. It was a wide area, about 4 doorways width. I remember one day I vacuumed the carpet in the living room... I was the only one home at the time, and I always vacuum backwards so there are no footprints in the carpet when I'm done. I finished up and went to put the vacuum away, and when I went back to where I was, there were foot prints all over the room. wtf? :lol:

Being said sister ;) the other main story about Bob.

He also nicked my house keys for two weeks and put them inside my pillowcase, one - I don't take my keys into the bedroom and two - they were where I put my head every night...

I'm thinking we have a ghostie that has a penchant for our dishwasher.

Ours is a standalone that you roll into position next to the sink and hook it up to the faucet and plug it in. On the floor near our sink we have a bath mat for comfort while washing. This means we have to move it out of the way when we move the washer into position and move it back when done.

Now here's the weird part. On occasion, when the machine is done the bath mat is soaked! But the odd thing is that it is the only thing that is and it's a fair distance away. It's not near any water sources and there are no other signs of water anywhere else. We still can't figure it out.

Ghosts don't much care for me. They tend to disappear when I'm around.

I cant say I miss having a ghost, but when I lived in the old family house growing up, it did make for some interesting times. They liked to knock on the door when I was trying to read, not to mention up and down the stairs in the middle of the night and moving stuff around. Also, just walking into the attic.....fuhgeddaboutit. They were there and they made sure you knew. I yelled at them a couple times and they slowed down a little. No one else in my house was ever bothered by them. Just me. Lucky me.

ETA: Hi Mis' Ghostie! Stay over there...thanks.

Dreamstalker

It's OK, I'll move over here...ghosts seem to like me so maybe he'll stay where I am.

I did find a 1908-vintage ouija board in the attic when we cleaned it out...tempting, but I could attract some of the weird stuff in this neck of the woods. We actually found two boards, we suspect that the newer 1950's one was the source of the male entity. That board sold to some vaguely creepy guy.

*waves to Mis' ghost and glares at the two spirits reading over her shoulder* Sometimes I HATE being able to talk to spirits but I hate those who don't listen to me when I tell them to fuck off even more. I know this may sound like boasting/being stupid, but I have that ability to speak to them and it's not nice because sometimes they flock to me and it drains me out to the bone if I speak to them for too long. But I've only just discovered that it's actually a rare gift and not normal like I thought it was. I've had bad encounters with spirits/energy vampires before and I don't care to repeat the experience. I've been touched on my breast, my butt, pinned down on my bed, woken out of a deep sleep and scared senseless. You don't want this gift sometimes, trust me.

But as for ghosts? I've not seen any myself. My parents used to live in a house that was haunted by an angry man who died of a brain tumor a week before the house was sold to them and DID. NOT. WANT. my parents to be in his house. He banged, threw things and scared my parents out of their wits. There have been reports of a ghost living on the third floor who liked to pull the tails of cat living in that apartment and who liked to freak out my dogs. Dunno if he's there or not still, I haven't felt him. We have also had animal ghosts in the house, notably the ghosts of the beagle we had to put to sleep but who didn't realize he were dead until we told him to go on home. Same with the female who died two years later.

Oh! I've had things disappear and be rearranged about, most notably the ring my boyfriend gave me that turned up in the closet, or the pen my father gave me that turned up nearly a year later.

I know that if there is a fight going on in the house (verbal never physical) light bulbs will start going out with a very loud *POP*, which usually quiets the yelling down right away. Since they never ever pop that loud when they go out on their own, I think it's our ghostie's way of telling us he doesn't like it when we fight and to knock it off.

You will hear things being thrown around upstairs if the light bulb doesn't stop the fight. He has only done that once and that was because the fight continued.

I believe he likes us because there is a lot of love, laughter and silliness that goes on and he doesn't like to see that change when there is yelling going on.

Hi ghostie!


I think my ghost is my old dog. She passed away about 6 years ago, and even to this day I still find shredded kleenex in my shoes like she used to do. And I would swear coming home at night, that she's waiting for me in the kitchen.

No ghosts at my place now. Since getting the new kitties last year...Snow hasn't been around as much. Still finding plenty of white fur though :p

Oh, and I haven't seen my grandfather's ghost either. Up until Grandma's farm was sold (complete with an 1860s-era farmhouse), I'd see some strange things...usually at night. After Grandma would go to sleep, I'd usually stay up late and watch movies on weekends.

Several times during the night, I'd get the feeling that I was being watched :eek: Keep in mind that it was usually pitch black and *very* quiet at night. Extra spooky points if fog was coming in off the hills.

Usually, the "feeling watched" thing would make me look towards a certain room. A room, that had once been my grandfather's office. Since he spent quite a bit of time in there over the years, that didn't surprise me. I'm sure he was sitting in there "paying the bills" or attempting to figure out my computer :lol:

But still, it was pretty damn spooky. Even worse, would be...when he'd put his hand on my shoulder! Scared the crap out of me! Then I thought that it was probably his way of telling me that he was still watching over his family. I was always close to my grandparents, and was always at their house.

Now the place has been sold, and I'm not sure what happened to him :cry:

I've noticed an unusual amount of odd noises at night lately. Maybe the house finally has a ghost. And the picture of Albert Einstein we have in the downstairs TV room (next to my bedroom) always creeps me the Foxtrot out because its eyes follow me.
