I've been thinking about doing this for awhile now, and have held off for various reasons.
But I've decided: 'Tis the season! And what's the season without a little old ghost story?
In this case, a ghost story that's roughly 40 years old and still going strong.
Now, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Liz! What's with the woo? You're all about the science!"
To which I must answer, "Indeed. I'm a hard-core skeptic, especially
when it comes to claims that some place is haunted."
The irony is this: If I didn't grow up in a house that was haunted, I'm pretty sure I'd be much less of a skeptic about these things. And honestly? That's not at all unusual for people who've grown up in for-reals haunted spaces. They tend to be the biggest skeptics of all when it comes to claims about hauntings (and by extension, all things woo — like UFOs and pyramid power).
It's because we know
, man. We know
So, I offer myself up for questions about growing up in a haunted house.
But first, I'll try to get some of your questions out of the way with a FAQ of the ghosts that still (un)live in the house in which I grew up.( We've never been scared. Startled at times, but not scared.Collapse )
Wow. That went on longer than I thought. And I'm sure there are lots of questions out there.
So have at it. I will answer questions as they come in between now and November 1, 2011.
I will answer all of them (it just may take me awhile).
I'll tackle them in the evening, when I actually have time to respond.
And no, this isn't a joke. I'm not making anything up. I'm being deadly serious.
But it's okay if you laugh.
I'd laugh, too.
If, y'know, I didn't grow up in the house that I did.This entry was originally posted at http://liz-marcs.dreamwidth.org/428281.html and has comments. Please comment there using OpenID.
