Hi, My Name is Heather...

... and I'm a ghost hunter.


And tonight? I'll be hunting down the paranormal.

I haven't blogged about this because it's something very personal to me and I would be hurt to have anyone snicker or roll their eyes at it. But, I thought I would finally let you peeps in on this part of my life because you've been accepting of everything else about me: geek, band geek, lover of Sean Connery, Kevin Smith, and Jensen Ackles, hater of covenants, Fab/Avitable/Britt groupie. See, every now and then I will have to pull an all-nighter at a purportedly haunted location and when I come home, I will be tired, reflective, and wondering.

Was that a voice I heard near my ear?

Was that someone brushing against my shoulder?

Was that a ghost or a play of shadows in the next room?

I'm doing this because of a life-long interest in the paranormal. I'm doing this to help answer my lingering questions about what happens to us when we die. I'm doing this to do this.

I won't tell you where I'm investigating. I can't. I won't tell you who I'm investigating with. I can't. You'll never see pictures or videos or hear audio clips of disembodied voices. Those, I can't post.

What I can share are my personal experiences, and share these moments with the dead, with you.

And if you don't hear from me for a couple days after an investigation, you'll know why.

It's 'cause I'm sleeping off the ghosts.

Though I don't believe in UFOs, little green men, or anal probes on spaceships, I do believe in ghosts. I've had experiences with them, and my grandmother saw them from time to time.

I hope your ghost-hunting was successful and interesting. For me, I would like to avoid them for the rest of my life. They scare the bejeezus out of me!

Peace - D

Well, you know how awesome I think it is.

Does your group ever post any evidence they find on their website?

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Momma - I believe in UFOs because of my Dad. He had such a fervent belief in them that I can't help but believe, too.

Avitable - Thanks, hon! No, we haven't posted anything because, right now, everything is confidential and being a relatively new group, we don't have much of an evidence database. As soon as we have something spectacular and the home/business owner gives us permission, we'll probably post something. And, I'll let you know! :-)

HEATHER said...

I am a believer too.
Please let us know if you see anything!

You're not going with THE Ghost Hunters, are you? ;) I would be soooo jealous! That show is totally my guilty pleasure...while I don't necessarily believe, I don't really disbelieve either. Does that make sense? Actually, I don't want to be one of those that can see them--I'd probably poop myself!

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Other Heather - Oh, I'll so let you know!

Molly's Mom - Nope. I'm not a ghost hunter with TAPS. But, we are affiliated with them. And poop myself? That would be something I wouldn't be able to live down because my fellow ghost hunters like a good joke and that would NEVER go away! :-)

One more topic we need to cover next time we hit CCF!

As I've said over 1,000 times before, both to you and about you -


While I'm slightly disappointed that you won't be sharing the EVPs or pictures or videos with us, I'm really, really looking forward to hearing about your experiences! There's a paranormal investigation group here in Memphis, but apparently they're not comfortable with my or my husbands religious beliefs (they actually said this).

Miss Britt said...

Oh man! I wish we could hear more about this!

That is the coolest thing EVER. I grew up in a for real haunted house. Had nightmares about the house until the day it burned down about 5 years ago.

I believe.

Gypsy said...

I'm fascinated.

Unknown said...

Biatch, if you EVER see/hear/feel anything you better call me ASAP!!!

Jenn said...

Happy hunting! What a WICKED experience it would be, I can't wait to hear more about it!

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

NATUI - Done!

Andrea - Yeah, we've signed non-disclosure agreements as part of our membership. If the group as a whole posts evidence on the group site, I'll let you know! And? Your Memphis ghost hunting group? What a bunch of small-minded idiots.

Britt - I know. I wish I could tell you all, too.

MommyCosm - Wow. I'm sorry that house gave you nightmares. I wish a group like ours could have helped you and your family.

Gypsy - Me too. That's why I do it.

Teri - Hell, yeah! You know I will!

Jenn - I will certainly tell you guys all about it! As much as I can...
