On Wednesday nights, don’t bother calling me. Don’t bother e-mailing me because I won’t respond. At least, not between the hours of 7pm and 10pm (CST).
Because I’m watching “Ghost Hunters” on the Sci Fi Network”.
I know what you’re thinking; how can I, a brilliant woman with such viral writing skills be fascinated by such utter bullshit????
Because I can.
And I am.
This bit of freshly revealed personal info might come as a surprise to some of you (even to those of you who “know” me) but I am fascinated by unexplained phenomenon. Always have been.
I love magic and not the kind exhibited by Samantha’s twitching nose or Endora’s arm waving histrionics on “Bewitched”. By the way, what was William Asher and ABC thinking with those lame ass effects???
No, I’m talking the magic of power. Of intellect. Of confidence. Of wit.
And the crap that scares the shit out of us.
Some people drink; others shop, I research unexplained phenomenon; those things that go bump in the night…and that’s NOT a reference to my friends on a Friday night coke bender, either.
It’s ghosts and eerie stuff and all kinds of things that science can’t explain and even if it could, we wouldn’t want to believe it.
So, I’ve decided that NEXT WEEK will by Mystery Week. I wanted to do it this week, but I’ve got a million things to do at work and simply won’t have time to the research, but next week? For sure. Beginning Monday, May 26t and continuing on through Friday May 31, I’m going to post articles featuring subjects that fascinate me.
Included will be (and in no particular order):
- The Bell Witch
- The Moving Rocks of Death Valley
- Magic as it relates to religious mysticism (Voodoo and golums)
- Ghosts (personal experience)
Of course, every story will come with it’s own patented Kendrick flourishes, so while informative and intriguing, I’ll HAVE to make fun of it, too.
I mean I am, after all….ME.
So, gather the kids, lock the doors, don some garlic, polish your silver bullets, then pop some butter-flavored Orville R. and join me NEXT Monday and every day next week for tales of intrigue, suspense mixed with a little vile, ribald comedy.
