Things that go bump in the night!

So following a conversation i had with a friend of mine recently about spooky goings on, I had been telling her my own experiences and decided i should blog about it :) Basically all my life i have always felt or saw unexplainable things guess it was just normal for me but as i got older i realised not everyone could see or hear what i did. It was simple stuff like seeing shadows, hearing someone call my name, seeing a white 'vapour' in my room, smelling strange smells, just  'feeling' someone was watching me. When i was 15 i remember i had redecorated my room, the walls were blue and the wood was all lemon, i put all glow in the dark stars and planets around my room, had a new dark blue blind so the room would be pitch black as i slept. The first night my room was ready i settled down in my new bed and started to drift off all warm and cosy, when suddenly an icy cold breeze went by my face. I immediately sat bolt up in the bed and saw by the door, just a huge white light. I could get the smell of Guinness too really strong. It started to fade away and i was a bit spooked but nonetheless fell asleep.

This kind of thing happened all the time, Nothing ever freaked me out too much. After all only the living will harm you LOL... I used to think that, until i moved out for the first time.. I had moved in with my ex boyfriend into our first apartment. We had spent a couple of days unpacking and were just chilling out one night on the sofa. We had been away on holiday and had more or less just got back. We were just chatting when suddenly my CD player, which has 3 Cd's in it started to flip through the Cd's. Nothing unusual there..except it wasn't plugged in. It did this for about 2 minutes really violently. I felt a horrible chill go through me but my ex was warm.I was getting a bit freaked out and we moved into the bedroom. I lay down on my bed and almost straight away felt a pressure on top of me. We decided to go out for a bit of air as we were both pretty shaken by this. The apartment we had was in the basement of an old Georgian house.So as i climbed the stairs to go to the front door, my ex locked up .I looked to my right where the other stairs were and a chillingly feeling went down my spine.I saw a girl sitting there with her knees hunched up and her head resting on them. She had what looked like a nightdress on her, a long white one with a ruffle at the top. She turned to look at me but i as i looked away momentarily to see if he could see this, she disappeared. I just ran to the door and ran outside. We walked town for 2-3 hours terrified to go back but eventually we did and it was all calm and welcoming again. I still don't know what the hell all that was but we moved out a year later.

Another experience i had was in my sisters house, my Grandmothers old house. It was a few years after my grandparents had died. My sister was pregnant with her 2nd child, nearly due and i stayed over as her husband had to go away on a course. We were just chatting away then went to bed. I was sleeping in the small room.I got into bed and was facing out the window.I suddenly felt something sit on my bed. Expecting it to be my niece, after coming into my room, i looked at the reflection in the window and saw my dead grandmother sitting on the bed stroking my head smiling. It was nice to see but still freaky. I could see the blue dress we buried her in , her hair her smile. She stayed there for ages and i figure i must have fallen asleep. But my sisters 3 kids keep talking about a boy in the house and have seen my grandparents and Jamie often talks to himself as if having a conversation.

The 3rd experience i had was far creepier. I was living in a place in Ireland called Drogheda,. Its outside Dublin, a nice town to live in steeped in history, We had moved into our 2nd home there. It didn't take long for weird stuff to start happening. For the record i wasn't over enthused about moving into this place at the time but we had to.At the time the Celtic Tiger was roaring, money was been made and places were getting snapped up. It was a very dark house, wood panelling, dark stained. Just had a creepy feel to it. Weird things were happening like keys going missing, turning up in odd places, a phone that was on the kitchen table ended up on the couch, a cabinet door that WOULD be closed but you would walk in 5 minutes later and it was open again.. It was creepy. Then the bedroom i had was so dark and horrible. But one night i woke up.I suddenly woke up and i don't know why. I lay there and realised my heart was pounding and i was freezing despite it been so warm outside. I had hairs standing up at the back of my neck.. I don't know how but i sat up and looked at the end of my bed . There looming over us was an old man.Rage is the only way i can describe his look. He was not happy we were in his house. He glared and then faded away. I realised then we had a problem. This continued over months. We had a cranky old bastard who still thought he was alive and what were we doing in his house??? Through trying to communicate with him i discovered his name was Tom.This was actually verified by another neighbour a few days later when i casually asked about the history of the house. He refused to cooperate with me because i 'was a girl'. He had no time for 'foolish women' and only would talk to my ex. Who was then thrown into the whole thing without really wanting it. Everyone would remark on the awful atmosphere in the house and no one liked staying. It as so hard to live there and after a year we had enough.Enough of the tension, enough of the unexplained marks and scratches on our bodies, enough of 'losing' things and we moved somewhere new then for 3 almost peaceful years.LOL


Not all experinces aree horrible obviously. Ive seen my old dog running about, ive seen old cats i had, ive seen loved one happy and pain free.. Ive seen enough not to be afraid of dying.Its just the next step to a different phase of life. But i have been phychically attacked, and that is horrible. When someone is thinking so badly of you they send out a vibe, pretty much like a nasty little demon.Some people do this willingly and others dont know they are doing it.  But its like something draining your life away.Its like always feeling depressed, always tired waking up with scratches or unexplained bruises.This sort of thing happens when someone is insanely jealous of you or your relationship, your job or your sucess. Someone who obsesses over everything you do with sheer jealousy, ill will and badness.It attacks you and until you learn a few tricks to reflect it back and realise whos doing it, it will drain you. This has happened to me twice this year and a few times before. I am kind ofused to it and can deal with it fairly effectivly but some people cant. People need to be so careful about the thoughts they put out into the universe. They can be so damaging.

I do have more stories to tell but i think thats enough to be going on with for now. If there is any aspect to the paranormal you are interested in i can do a blog about it, no matter what it is. Comment below or PM me at themadgiraffe@gmail.com and i will see what i can come up with :)

On a lighter note, i have a new facebook page here http://www.facebook.com/alphathegiraffe  Go give him a bit of love by liking the page :)
 Also while your there give this guy some love too http://www.facebook.com/CidCyanogeMond9 ;)

So yeah, any aspect of the paranormal, comment below or messsage me and i will do a blog on it  :) Cheers

Its 6am and im wide awake!

Oh hai, Good morning to you all. I trust you slept well. I haven't..slept at all. I'm wide awake and currently listening to Manu Chao on headphones cos everyone is asleep and to listen to Mr Chao on quiet is just unacceptable.

I'm also very high..so very very high. Ive been smoking since 3pm yesterday.I'm smoking as i type I'm pretty sure ill crash later in EPIC fashion. I don't understand though, as usually smoking makes me sleepy after a time.But i .am.WIRED. Like giving a kid a 3 shots of espresso. .In my highest part of the night i freaked myself out thinking maybe i was a vampire but i realised that was ridiculous because i had a craving for garlic bread just at that very minute.


For some mad reason id love to take a walk in the mountains right now. I also need to learn the banjo.I want to duel with a Spanish man for the hand of Maria on top of a Spanish mountain , each banjo twang more furious than the last. Also the ukulele . That would be awesome to play,.Id go to Mexico and play my Ukulele to a sleepy but hot Mexican man as he trys to win the heart of Maria. As she coldly turns away from him because her stubbornness tells her she wants Juan but as i emerge from some Spanish arches slowly playing my Ukulele shell turn to Spanish man, lets say Carlos, and falls into his arms. But then a terrible misfortune happens and Carlos finds out Maria's wild heart cant be tamed and her legs wont close especially when he finds out..Maria has been sleeping with his half brother Manuel and is now pregnant but doesn't know who the father is. At this point i abandon the Ukulele in favour of the furious banjo twangs as the tension rises when Carlos' Uncle Francoise turns up with a dark secret.

Id love a croissant round about now. I'm so going to the supermarket when it opens. And getting like,  10 croissants and nutella.ooh or bacon. mm a croissant with cream cheese and bacon. I have the munchies bad.

So earlier today i go a ps2 game called Socom U.S Navy Seals. Fully intact. The box, the Manuel, the headset the game, obviously for a whopping 50cent. Ill have to go without food for a week to pay for that :D But as happy as i am to have gotten a bargain like that i cant help to wonder.Who owned it before me and what was there basic ear hygiene like? Now Michael told me 'im sure it'll be fine babe, just use it' and the logical side tells me hes right. But the neurotic side of me screams ear infections, crusty ears, waxy build up..it could have been the case.Do i use the headset? DO I? Its a minefield out there in retro gaming collecting.A germ filled crusty eared minefield.

Hmmm, i know i was planning to write something specific on this blog but my mad rants have prevented that now.. That's rather annoying.Maddening in fact.

Ah well. I think ill stop here and let Monsters Of Folk spirit me away with their delightful tunes :)
