You all know that I'm into creepy things. I love skulls and horror and 90% of my podcast playlists are either true crime or paranormal. I like being scared. It's just my thing. My other thing is writing, and as much as I told myself that this is my blog and I can put whatever... Continue Reading →
Earlier this week I was listening to a new favorite creepy podcast, Ghosting Around with Kathleen Derose and John Casen. Yeah, the name is really dumb and they tell way too many stupid/dad jokes, but it's otherwise enjoyable and easy to listen to while I'm doing more important things, like working. Also, John writes for... Continue Reading →
I talked a while ago about a podcast I love, Ghosts in the Burbs. This week’s installment is about a place I’ve been.
The introduction may be a little confusing if you’re not a regular listener; there are names in there that you likely haven’t heard before. But the couple in this story supposedly spend the night in a haunted location near my hometown. A location I’ve visited with some of my favorite ladies. It’s worth a read, and if you like it, maybe go back and read from the beginning. You won’t be disappointed.
“Are you hearing anything now?” Adam asked excitedly.
I told him I hadn’t and that I usually didn’t, that it was a rare occurrence as of late. It was a lie. As I’d watched the man and his fiancé walk through Quebrada’s front door Claire had cautioned, “Be careful with those two.”
The truth was that Claire had stuck around after that night in Smith and Wollensky’s when I’d broken the news of her freedom to the three witches who’d bound her in between. After that night she’d told me that there had been a chance to move on and her boyfriend had taken it but she had chosen to stay behind. She said Wellesley was just getting good and that I was just getting started.
The dead were speaking, but not very often and when they did it wasn’t all that informative or helpful. Claire’s voice rose above…

I've talked about fear already during this creepy high holy season, but the fears I mentioned weren't paranormal in nature. Those fears were relatively minor compared to the things I want to talk about today. So, at this point you all know that I'm a creepy bitch; I don't shy away from the paranormal and...

We've been living in this apartment for a few months now, and not to be alarmist, but I think it might be a tiny bit haunted. Not in a scary way, just in a "Huh, that's odd" way. We live north of Albany proper in a town called Cohoes, in the "downtown" area. It only... Continue Reading →
Embarrassing confession time: while I love creepy things, I can't watch, listen to or read them alone at night or I scare the hell out of myself. Sometimes I even get creeped out during the day, depending on the story. This is especially inconvenient because Dan works nights, and he's been spending most of the... Continue Reading →
If you weren't alive in the 90s or were too young to stay up to watch Friends you won't get this reference. The rest of you can skip this next paragraph. Friends was an NBC show that aired on Thursday nights from the mid-90s to the early 00s. It's a situational comedy about six young adults living in... Continue Reading →
I love podcasts. I'm now subscribed to more than 60 of them, and I listen basically all day, every day. While I'm working, while I'm driving, sometimes even when I'm in the shower. I know this is when normal people listen to music, but music doesn't keep my brain engaged. I zone out, and I... Continue Reading →
Get excited you creepy bitches, IT'S OCTOBER!! I'm pumped, can you tell? October means Halloween decorations, candy, ghosts stories, scary movies; basically the things I live for. I also have to make it home at least once this month, not only to see my family and friends but also to gorge myself on my mom's... Continue Reading →
As Halloween approaches, it's time to put my creepiness on display. I know that I complained about fall yesterday, but I'm really not that mad about it. This is the time of year when my love of scary things goes from off-puttingly odd to charmingly enthusiastic. From now until Halloween I'm on trend, yo. Anyway.... Continue Reading →
This isn't the post I planned for today. I had intended to write about exploring my new city (which I suppose could include this) or maybe showing y'all the Allure beauty box that showed up in my mail unexpectedly. But no... it's paranormal storytime again. To be clear, nothing outwardly or obviously paranormal happened to... Continue Reading →
A few months ago I posted about one of my new favorite podcasts, Para(normal). I had sent her some personal experiences and she read them on a recent episode, also giving me (and this blog) a shoutout. Yes, I fangirled. Yes, I'm sad that they're over the border and we can't be best friends. Anyway,... Continue Reading →
Most of the time when I go on long-distance road trips I listen to podcasts and audiobooks instead of music. Because I'm a weirdo. I know. On my last trip to Michigan I was bored with the dating podcast I'd been listening to (I might talk about it in a different post because it was... Continue Reading →
I picked this book up at Haslam's in St. Petersburg, Florida, one of the biggest and coolest bookstores I've ever seen in my life. I was so overwhelmed by the sheer size of this place that I didn't take any photos, but trust me, it's amazing. Supposedly it's also haunted, but that's another story. Unfortunately...

I know I've mentioned it in passing, but recently I've been super into podcasts. I used to find them incredibly boring, but I was also listening primarily to This American Life and Savage Lovecast, which are good, but after a while get a little redundant. I mean, how many times can you listen to Dan... Continue Reading →
