Ghost Stories

Posted on September 10th, 2010 by Jean

After tucking the children into bed at night, I sneak to my room and watch an hour of Celebrity Ghost Stories, Ghost Hunters International, or Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal.
 
If you get a chance to hear celebrity Sammy Hagar‘s tales, tune in. He’s so mellow as his stories unfold. Or listen to Ghost Hunter Barry Fitzgerald‘s thick Irish accent as he respectfully requests the presence of ghosts. Tis lovely. Paranormal kids are in good hands with no-nonsense psychic, Chip Coffey.
 

 
I wish shows like these had been around when I was younger! Growing up, I experienced so much paranormal activity I thought I was haunted.
 
Here is my homage to Celebrity Ghost Stories. I call it Blogger Ghost Stories.
 

 
• Do you watch televised ghost shows?
• Do you have a haunting to share?
• Would you ever investigate a haunted domicile?
• Have you ever looked in a mirror and seen something unexpected?

Kittens In Da House!

Posted on May 4th, 2010 by Jean


 
We have kittens in da house! Ya, boy! Nine weeks ago a beautiful, black kitty adopted us. The girls named her Alexis after one of the new Liv Dolls. Alexis is the sweetest cat, far sweeter than the two we already have. (Shhhh… don’t tell Wiggles and Getta.)
 
We took Alexis in for her shots, and scheduled to have her spayed. As her surgery loomed, we noticed her getting quite plump. Sure enough, she was pregnant.
 
March 4th ~ Alexis arrived. May 3rd ~ Her five kittens arrived. Yes, just that fast.
 

 
• Does one of these kitties have your name on it?
• Do strays follow you home?
• How has May greeted you?
