Hey Mr Postman

Monday’s here and I miss Sunday already.

I wanted to go to Mr Bent’s yesterday, but he wasn’t home. Or he was, but just didn’t feel like opening the door. He’s that kind of guy, he is. Sometimes we know he’s at home and then people (most often the postman) ring our doorbell to come and deliver packages or mail for him. It’s not like that he will open the door for us, or anything. Then he comes to collect the stuff whenever he feels like it and expects us to open the door for him at any time. One time we didn’t and he even got a little mad and shouted,’ Open up, I know you are in there!’ Why we never do the same when he doesn’t answer the door, I don’t know.

We haven’t the foggiest idea what happened or might have happened to him that made him into this incredibly introverted and socially handicapped person. Sometimes Mum says it might have been the war, but when I ask her which one, she looks at me and says,’ How should I know? There’s been so many.’ So that might just rule out that hypothesis. Other times she blames it on upbringing and his parents. I wish she could have a talk with his parents, because Mum’s upbringing is not really helping me becoming a more sociable person.

Enough about that, Mr Bent was not at home, so, I surfed the Net a little bit to see what I could find on ghost-hunting equipment. Below are some of the sites I found last night. I am not really sure whether they are really helpful and whether these sites are serious about this. For some reason I feel like I am being mocked, but this time not by peers. Ghoststudy.com feels like a scam. Are they serious $25.00 for a motion detector!? How does that help me find ghosts in a crowded city; there’s motion everywhere! It’s probably just a cheap ‘burglar’ alarm.

These are the sites:

This site: http://www.ghoststudy.com/new/huntips.html was kind of helpful. It had some nice helpful tips (although some things were really too obvious) and had some links to other helpful tips pages. I might want to try to record ghosts. Maybe that’s the first thing I have to look into, because I could do that at home or somewhere along the route to school, or something. It’s more or less what they did in the film Whitenoise. I’m not sure whether it will work, but it’s worth the shot.

There’s only one problem, I need to get myself one of those old recording devices. They say digital ones work just as fine, but I don’t know. For some reason it feels more real to record something on one of those tape things. Are they still for sale somewhere, anywhere? Note to self: look it up!

But not now, because it’s time for breakfastdinnerfood! I love food. Maybe that’s why I am a bit chubby (I’m not fat nor big boned … just easy to see). Mum’s not the best of cooks, but not the worst either. She is currently experimenting with ‘exotic dishes’, as she calls it. To me it’s just pasta. Well, see me tomorrow.  Image

White Noise and Ouija Boards

This weekend I am going to try and see if I can find an excuse to leave the house and go to Bank station. All I need is a good excuse and shopping isn’t one of them. Neither is ‘I’m going to see a friend’ as Mum knows I don’t really have any and have never had any since I left primary school. She said I never recovered from the shock of leaving all my friends and going to the one school none of my classmates were going. I think she sent me to this school on purpose.

Anyways, things will have to change some day. One day I will have loads of friends and know how to act around people. Maybe one of those friends – I don’t want to push my luck, but more than one would be even better – would like to go ghost hunting with me. We could be some sort of modern type of ghostbusters – still low budget unless one of them turns out to be rich.

I have to look into ghost business a little bit. What are ghosts made of? Can you actually catch them? I don’t really believe in exorcism, and basically that is not what I would want to be doing, hell no! First of all I would want to see one for real. Let’s start with that. For some reason there are loads of people full of stories of seeing ghosts and taking pictures of people and all of suddenly ghosts appear in those pictures. None of these things ever happen to me. Hopefully, with Mr Bent’s help, I am upping my chances of seeing one in real life (or should I say death?). If there is anybody out there who has got a good excuse for me to be leaving the house on Saturday; that would be grand.

Maybe I should watch a couple of ghost films, too. I heard White Noise is a good one. If it really works, communicating with ghosts through white noise, I might just give that a try. I don’t really believe in Ouija Boards. My guess people just move that glass with their own hands. Maybe they do it without really knowing themselves that they are moving it. I’ll have to look into these things.

First things first, though, I should tend to my homework. Lots of tests are coming my way (am I a lab rat?) and there are exercises that need to be done. I don’t really see how these exercises help me learn things. You do them at school and if you don’t understand the issue, you’ll will have to do some more of the same shit at home. As if that is going to be of any use. In any case, I’m leaving you. See me tomorrow.
