The Man In The Basement

I truly believe that the house we lived in before we moved to West VA. is haunted. A few months before we moved into it, the son in law of the couple that owned the house hung himself in the basement. The whole 12 years we lived there, all sorts of weird stuff happened. Things coming up missing , things being moved, and as noted in my previous post, there was the tape incident. There were also weird noises during the night, and one night while she was alone there, my Mom saw someone walking down the steps goin to the upstairs. I don't really beleive in Ghosts, but ya never know....

A Strange Experience Or The Case Of The Transformed Music Tape

During the Summer between 7th and 8th Grade, I was going on a trip somewhere, and the day before we left, I recorded a tape to listen to during the ride. Before I went to bed, I listened to it to check and see if it was ok, no prob. The next morning, however was a totally different story. I put the tape in my walkman, expecting to hear my favorite tunes, but..........THERE WAS TOTALLY DIFFERENT STUFF ON IT!!!!! Talk about your mysteries. To this day, I still have no damn idea what happened. I think it was the guy in the basement (subject of a future post) But my Dad thinks I hit the wrong button on the radio. Hummm....

Chat Ettiquette

Over my years of being an online chatter, I've had a lotta things done to me that were quite annoying. Therefore, here are some suggestions that will get you into my good graces should you want to chat with me. They are good for everyone.

1: When someone comes online, please wait a few mins before PMing them. Give them time to get settled it.
2: ASl? FORGET IT!!! That's what profiles are for!!
3: Don't ask if someone has a pic or cam. If they want you to know what they look like, they'll let ya know.
4: Please don't ask for money of give a sob story of how you're a poor African or Indian/Pakistani minister.
5: If you're gonna say something, please don't wait 10 minutes after saying hi!

Thank you for your attention!

School Daze or "Don't cramp my style"

As you all may know, I love to read. I have a specific addiction to history, and military history in particular. I had this one teacher an 8th Grade English Teacher named Mrs. Lesser. Excuse me for the language, but she was a BITCH. We nearly came to blows many times because everytime I'd write a book report, it was about some war or something. Finally she said, "Listen, another war story, and I'm gonna flunk you". So me, being the resourceful type, found the most stupidest book I could find, and wrote a book report that was almost a novel in itself.'s always nice to get the last Laugh. :P

Note to a Special Lady


Thank you for everything you've done for me. You have been the one constant in the storms I've had to go through the past months. Knowing that you're there for me has been the only thing keeping me from going insane. You've won my heart over, I can only hope to do the same to you!


No, I'm not conceited :P I really am a miracle. When my Mom was pregnant with me, her Thyroid went bad, and it caused me to be a really sick little baby. I was born with a lotta birth defects. One of my kidneys had to be removed because it didn't work, and the other one was virtually rebuilt. The rest of my urinary tract was also in a shambles. I can't have kids, because all the equipment associated with procreation is also defective. Sure, I could have an operation to get it fixed, but having to piss through a catheter into a bag for a couple of months while everything heals is not my idea of fun. The dr's said I wouldnt make it past a year, but here I am, a week from turning 33. Hummm....maybe I was wrong thinking God hadn't done anything good for me!

Another Funny Story

This nest story has nothing to do with me, it involves my parents. In 1985, my Mom won a cruise to the Bahamas. To get there, She and my Dad had to fly from Dulles Airport to Miami to catch the cruise ship. Welllll, Dad found out that he was scared to fly, and on the plane, it took every bit of his energy to keep from flipping out. They had a really good time on their cruise, but when it was time to go home, Dad wanted no parts of flying. Since it was Chrismas/New Year's holiday, the only vehicle they could find to rent was a U-Haul truck. So they drove all the way from Fla. back to VA in that. Quite a vacation!

My Biggest Fear

The biggest fear I have in my entire life is that I'm going to die alone, and that there won't be anyone to bury me, and they'll have to throw me in the trash or something. I'm the baby of my family, and since I'm not too sure if I can ever get married, and since I can't have kids, This fear might be justified...I dunn.

My Mom

My Mom has got to be one of the most strongest people I've ever seen. She doesn't complain at all about her injury, and that really amazes me!

My Friend Mel

My closest friend in the world is Melissia Frierson. I met her online a couple years ago, and we have been friends ever since. She's helped me out so many times when I've been down, I've lost count. She's helped me keep my faith when I was about ready to lose it, and just generally been there to listen. Thanks Mel, you're the best!

The Funniest Thing That Ever Happened To Me

I think the funniest thing that ever happened to me happened on my 2nd day of High School. It was the end of the school day, and on my way out, I stopped at the bathroom. When I got done with that, I got totally lost, and by the time I got my bearings, all the buses were gone. Since I didnt know anyone there, and I didn't have any money with me, the only thing I could go was walk. So here I am, walking down a huge highway, and climing over the concrete barriers to get on the right side of the road. It took me a couple hours, but just when I made it into town, My sister finally showed up in her car, and took me to the place where my Mom worked. Needless to say, Mom was not impressed with what I did. I still think about that and laught!

A New Attitude

After going through a rough time the past few days because of my getting upset at my women problems, my Mom's injury, and flashbacks of my getting picked on in school, I have decided to take a new, more productive attitude. I'm not gonna let things get me down, because they are only words, actions, and events, and they can't hurt you. Worrying, grief, and anger are nothing but unproductive emotions that do nothing but hurt the person experiencing them. I have 25 years to make up. This new attitude may make me act like a total ass once in a while, but I think I can control it.

Now...onto the rest of my life....whatever it may bring, I'm ready!

A look back at 1984

Dang, Can't beleive that it's been 20 years since what I consider the best year of my life to be! I consider 1984 to be the best year of my life because I started to grow up, and finally had some semblance of a childhood, because of all the stuff I'd had been through. I started to listen to rock music, much to the chagrin of my parents. I remember staying up all hours of the morning, trying to find songs I liked and taping them on my old boom box. Also, (unfortunately?) I became aware of the existence of girls. There was the 1 girl, by the name of Carolyn Riceman, that particularly caught my eye. I was head over heels in love with her, but alas, the feeling wasn't mutual. I tried every thing to get her to go out with me, but no dice. I think if I'd tried that today, I'd be in jail for stalking:P Sometimes, when I'm laying in bed at night, and I'm feeling down, I close my eyes and take a trip back to those days.

My Friend Jewels

A couple of days ago, I recieved what I think was the best email I've ever recieved. It came from my friend Jewels. She has got to be one of the sweetest people I have ever met! I had emailed her asking advice on how to forgive the lady that caused my Mom's accident. Although she did quote some scripture, she didn't preach to me. He advice was from the heart. She said that I had to forgive, or else it would eat me alive. I have known Jewels now for over 2 years I think. I admire her for her courage in overcoming all the problems she's had in her life. She truly has a strong relationship with God. Jewels, I tip my hat to ya, and thanks for being such a good friend!:)
