Friday Fives

1. If you think your house is haunted, what should you do?

Well, let’s see. For Christmas ghosts, you leave out the milk and cookies for the haunted present bringer ghost. The Easter ghost (who, oddly isn’t Jesus) is commemorated with eggs (?) Obviously Halloween has the Great Pumpkin but I am unsure what one is to leave for the Great Pumpkin Halloween ghost – maybe a blanket. For a general just around the house ghost, I think it would depend on who the ghost is, but a nice cocktail would surely be welcome.

2. When should you investigate a strange noise in your basement?

As I am in an apartment and the complex is next to a school and an industrial park there are always odd little noises. Not loud, not annoying – doors closing or some foot steps.

3. How do you know if an abandoned building is safe to visit?

The doors and windows are boarded up – meaning no one has crept in to squat.

4. How do you decide whether to solve a problem as a team, or split up and go it alone?

I am not the big problem solver – at least in personal life. I leave that to others. At work, I often have to take the reins and solve it.

5. Where do you store your knives and where would you look if one was missing?

On the kitchen counter in the knife block – if one is missing it is almost always in the sink or the dish drying rack.

  1. 1) Make peace that you will die horribly from some disjointed ether-world being that moves like a record skipping and is not in your mirror until they are.

    2) Loudly proclaim that I am leaving and the house it yours.

    3) As long as it used to be some ancient and mysterious medical, mental facility or building that has a troubled past, I am all about exploring these type of abandoned, yet deadly building

    4) If no one or the group is stepping up with a decision, I pretty much always go it alone. And the expected “He always needs to be in charge.” accusations and whispers start coming my way.

    5) In a knife block and a drawer. And if one is missing I always ponder why I had kids and hope that I am asleep when the knife finds me.

  2. 1) Become friends with the ethereal entity and then once it trusts you convince it to kill your enemies.

    2) Meh turn up the music or turn on the fan and ignore it.

    3) Was the abandoned building built in an ancient burial ground? Then you know there will be lots of ghosts to keep you company.

    4) If were there in a group we do it together. Why else would I be around people?

    5) Knife block or drying rack. Never in the dishwasher, that’s how you ruin a good knife.
