I'm using up the last of my paid time off and have the next week off from work. I plan on staying home mostly; I want to get the hoard cleaned out of my room so that way I can do some sort of banishment and cleansing because I really do not like the things I've been seeing at this end of the house and slinking around outside my room from under my door. I'm also going to try to get at least one fic written, edited and posted by the end of the week; I've been really invested in skyrim and elder scrolls lore over the last few weeks and I really want to write out some of my dragonborn's backstory.

My mom is insisting that we go walk around the local cemetery after dark at some point this week, and I'm against this idea because a.) I have been followed by something from that cemetery before for almost three-quarters of a mile down the street before it vanished. b.) My mom is a spirit magnet and we're having enough issues with ghosts at the house; we don't need another one. And c.) I really don't want to be arrested and fined for tresspassing. I bought a full spectrum camera last week and my mom wants to play with it at the cemetery, but I would much rather, you know, do that at home.

As we were walking out the door last night so I could go to work, my mom was hollering at me to clean up my room because she watched something walk through my door into my room. I probably would have died happy never knowing this, because I'm still lowkey freaked out about the twitchy shadow figure I saw in my brother's room, and I don't know if this is the same entity or not.

I found a stick insect outside at the corner, hanging off of the sign for the restaurant behind the house.

"Emoji spells aren't real magic. The witches of old used candles and nature to do their magic,"

Yeah, well the witches of old only had candles and nature at their disposal, and if they didn't have those, I'm sure they'd have found something else to use. Magic is adaptive, and these days we have technology and cell phones and if someone's magic uses emojis, then let them use fucking emojis. An emoji spell is just another type of sigil, which, I may add, is a relatively new form of magic that you traditionalists seem to love so much.

Hi there!

Name: [personal profile] scarlettina
Age: 55 (Good G-d, how did that happen?)
Location: Seattle, WA

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I’m a New York transplant living in Seattle with two cats and way too many books. I am creative and opinionated and still express myself like a native New Yorker, which makes some Seattleites uncomfortable despite my best efforts. I am a theater geek, a movie buff, a lover of tabletop and board games, a reader, a writer and a jeweler.

Top 5 fandoms: I’m a second-wave slash writer (second-wave as in: the first wave was in the early 1970s, the second in the mid-’80s to early ’90’s; everyone else came after) who hasn’t written fanfic in a while, but when I was doing that it was Star Trek, Starsky & Hutch and, more recently, Doctor Who (see my fanfic journal at [personal profile] scarlett_key). I have loved watching and discussing Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, so many more. How do you pick just five?

I mostly post about: My personal life, which also tends to be sprinkled with bits about politics, the science fiction community, movies, theater, books, travel, cats, my family, writing and observations about life in general.

I rarely post about: sports, math, the giant hornbeam tree in front of my condo, jackalopes, and my collection of porcelain hands (yes, really).

My three last posts were about: I occasionally do the Friday Five so this morning’s post was answering last week’s questions, two particularly striking dreams, and discovering the pile of get-well cards I received when I was in the hospital last year.

How often do you post? I currently post about once a week, though I’m aiming for better.

How about commenting? I try to comment on at least half to two-thirds of the posts that I read.

First off, since I am trying to separate out the evidence from the paranormal investigation on my computer; I am stuck trying to use windows movie maker to try and cut out these clips, and windows movie maker appears to be quite unstable and it keeps freezing and crashing on me.

On other words, I just spent thirty minutes trying to separate out a twenty-two second clip, upon which a small, intelligently moving orb appears to zip around and land on the MEL meter, sit there for a second and then fly off again.

So I get this clip separated out, and now I can play back the clip and blow it up to get a closer look.

And it was a fly.

The other night, my mom was asleep and three times, she heard someone walk down the hallway. She thought it was my brother, but upon investigation, it turns out he was sound asleep in his room.

I don't know what it is about that hallway, but daaaaammmmmn.

i'm scary

My store had our remodel in 2015, and the entire construction crew was terrified of me for no reason. Now, 2003-era Spoony (you know, the Mall Goth™ era) would have been proud, but seeing as how I am no longer a Mall Goth™, I was a little confused, albeit a little amused.

Apparently, the other day, I scared the shit out of the guys hanging up lights for the restaurant behind the house. I'm lowkey embarrassed that they both heard and witnessed this, but at the same time, I'm laughing.

I've mentioned the smoke alarm in the kitchen before. The other morning, I was cooking pasta and it just went insane. Would not shut up. I would stand there and wave a box of crackers at it, it would go quiet. I would stop fanning it for two seconds, and it's wailing again. I think I waved this box of crackers at it for thirty minutes; my shoulders are still sore, and my arms still feel like they're going to fall off. Just detach like a old barbie doll.

So naturally, being frustrated and unstable, I was screaming at it like a banshee.

The box of crackers eventually failed, and I grabbed a paint tray and started waving that at the smoke alarm; it did work a little bit better and stopped it from screaming a little quicker, but the moment I stopped fanning it, it would still start back up again. Now the difference between the box of crackers and the paint tray I was using was about ten inches, and I swung a little too high, and knocked the cover right off of the smoke detector.

Seeing my opportunity, I decided I was going to knock the battery out to silence it until I could do a thorough deep clean of the stove and the oven, so I was looking for something to knock the battery out. I have a tree pruner outside, so I stomped out of the house, completely unaware that there were people out there, and went to grab it, realized it was wet, and then threw it back onto the porch. I eventually knocked the battery out with a spatula.

So yeah, now they won't even look at me without running off.

On a more paranormal note:

I don't know if this was the same day or not, but the boys said they heard distinct voices coming from my back yard. I've mentioned before in a video that there is an entity of some sort in the backyard (maybe more in the general area because I do not think it's out there all the time and I have felt it in the house before), but it's been quiet and inactive as of late because I think, when we moved in, it was just curious as to who we were and has been since leaving us alone. But the boys even did a full circle of the house, and nobody was out there.

I've been going through the video evidence from the investigations and the background noise from the camera makes it sound like creepy music has already been layered over the video and it's eerie.

So I've been getting a very good workout on my arms and shoulders as of late because the smoke alarm in the kitchen is super sensitive and the burners only have to be on for five minutes for it to start wailing so yeah, I've spent the last thirty minutes fanning the smoke detector with a box of crackers to get it to shut the fuck up.
