Weekenders: Americus, GA 13

It was one of the strangest sensations I can recall–it was like I was having to struggle just to keep up with the planchette it seemed to be running away from my fingertips to get to the next letter or word.

This, of course, is a slightly condensed version of this session, though it wasn’t very much longer that what I’ve shown here. (I have a video of it but since I didn’t take it I don’t want to put it up without the owner’s permission.)

I’d never used a Ouija board before in my life and, frankly, had never planned to. Even after we moved to Florida from Louisiana, we’d hear stories of kids getting into all sorts of mischief back home with these sorts of things and you just didn’t even consider it! Can I say for certain that whatever was moving that planchette around the board was the spirit of a 10-year-old girl named Nicole? No. But I can tell you this: I wasn’t pushing the pointer.

More tomorrow…

Wrath of Con 4

This was probably one of my favorite parts of the BBGT Ghost Hunting 101 talk. Just the way he said “not faeries” as he rolled his eyes made me giggle. Quietly. Too myself.

Despite the late start and then the rushing to get everything in, they covered a lot of ground in their talk. I’m sure one of these days I’ll share what happened when we met with them again for an actual Ghost Hunt.

Wrath of Con 2

I’ve never really been the fangirl type, mostly because the objects of people’s squee-fection are human beings, first and foremost, and mostly just like everyone else. That being said, those I truly admire I tend to get rather shy around (you’ll see what I mean when I get to Dragon*Con). But I’m totally not above pointing out someone who I recognize from my weekly tv habits as he walks within a couple arm lengths of me. For serious.
