I’m in love with show Ghost Adventures — please do NOT ask me to expound on that love because I can’t explain it. The “crew”: Zak, Nick, and Aaron remind me a little of guys I used to hang out with in high school, and how we used to go “ghost hunting” after football games on Friday nights. Our favorite place to go was a church close to my house that EVERYBODY in the community KNEW was haunted. We proved it one particular Friday night when one of the guys, Randy, creeped around the back of the church, jumped out at me and made me pee my pants, and we heard this horrible organ music screeching in the darkened church! All five of us scrambled back to the car — my pants totally soaked — so we could GET OUT!! Because, listen, if there’s one thing you should learn from The Amityville Horror, when the house tells you to get out…well…you should definitely listen…haha…

But back to Ghost Adventures…the last few times I’ve watched it, I keep imagining a female ghost messing with the ghost hunters. I mean, there was a marathon this past Friday, and one episode was at Loretta Lynn’s house mansion ranch. They had all this new equipment, but one particular thing that intrigued me was some sort of machine that “interpreted” the ghosts’ energy into words — reminded me of the movie War Games when Matthew Broderick plugged up the speakers to the computer “Joshua” (“Shall…we…play..a…game?”). So in my imagination, this ghost follows a group of ghost hunters around, screwing with them, setting them up to look like idiots by making them believe they are really hearing/seeing/feeling ghosts. I figure she has to go over the top somehow and one of the ghost hunters gets hurt or some other mean ghost goes body-snatching or something else creepy.

I’ll have to keep thinking about my story, but I can say from my high school experience, looking for ghosts usually opens up “something” creepy — even if it’s just a week of nightmares and looking over your shoulders. Probably why I quit with my obsession so long ago — although I still wish I could do the whole graveyard historian thing…

Does anyone else have a creepy past time or secret obsession??? I can’t be the only one! haha…
