Ghosts

So, you guys, since my remodel is done, and my job is over, and I'm winding down my PTA duties, I don't have a lot to do.  I have to come up with stuff to do during the day to pass the time, and I try to make those things meaningful instead of frivolous, but sometimes I fail at that.  I could pass my time doing chores and cleaning the bathroom and stuff, but mostly I just read books and hang out.

One of the things that has been happening is that, during lunch time, which is usually around 1:30 (I'm a late breakfast eater) I turn on the TV to see what's cookin'.  Literally.  I often watch the food network.  But at 2:00 on the Bio channel, Celebrity Ghost Stories comes on.

People of the internet, I know how ridiculous this sounds.  I was flipping channels one day, and Joan Rivers was talking about a ghost, and then some guy from Sopranos, and then C. Thomas Howel, and before I knew it, I was watching and looking forward to Celebrity Ghost Stories every single dingle day.

At first I was all, I like it, but its not like I'm gonna DVR it or anything.  But that turns out not to have been true because I have an episode waiting on my DVR for me RIGHT NOW  Its haunting me.  Ha ha ha.

I freakin' love this show.  Its supremely stupid, but it has all the elements I like in a show: it is produced in small little bites, like three or four celebrities per show, so you don't really miss anything if you start in the middle.  It has C and D list celebrities, some I haven't even heard of.  There seem to be different categories of stories, some are simple post-death visitations that never happen again, some are spirits that live in the house all the time and are like family.  The show has weird sounds and screams and camera tricks that make it freaky enough that I probably wouldn't watch it if I was home alone at night.  Like, in the Loretta Lynn episode, they show a pond, but they color it all yellowish and wiggle the camera around, and then show a riderless white horse, and add some interference in there, and its awesome.

This is a video I took from my TV.  Its not from Celebrity Ghost Stories, but its about ghosts.  Sorry for the poor sound quality, I'm low tech.  To see the real version, click here.
