A Heart Attack

I just finished reading a book a couple of weeks ago called Mind Hunters. Morrigan loaned it to me, knowing the Law & Order, behavioral psychology fan I am. Great book on the beginning of the FBI's behavioral psychology department and the cases they worked.

Three of the cases were here in Columbia. They named roads and areas I am familiar with. Kinda creepy.

Tonight, I was bumming around, covered up on the couch, watching E! True Hollywood Stories on Serial Killers with an emphasis on BTK.

Now, a little background here. I am single! I live on my own and I don't know anyone! I pay attention to sounds, people and my surroundings. I also get easily freaked out by sounds outside or things I think I see. I hate walking to my truck at night (although I don't let that stop me), as their are many possible hiding places around my apartment. I miss having Kiki here to alert me when she heard something or to scare intruders. Yes, she is small and couldn't hurt anyone, but she made me feel better.

I've also been getting 1 hang up call a day from a guy in Florida for the past 3 days. They call my phone and when I answer Hello, this is..", before I get to my name they hang up. I looked the phone number up on Google and it is a residence. A guy's residence. I don't know him nor do I know anyone in his area.

So yes, I am paranoid and a little on edge!

To add one more thing to it, a month ago, my 17 year old sister was purposely searching to find my blog, AND FOUND IT! After talking to her and my mother about how that was wrong and I didn't want her reading it...she took it as a challenge. She left comments at two of the blogs of my blog family with personal information (real names).

I ended up blocking her IP!

So now that you have a little history...on to why I'm cleaning my desk chair right now!

I was on the phone with Napster, laughing up a storm about Mr. Balls and all of a sudden saw a comment email pop up for a post of "If You See Her..." That post didn't ring a bell to me and I was curious as to what it was about and when I wrote it.

I didn't know it was from just a few moments ago! I interrupt Napster to tell her what has happened, and she is trying to help me find out who could do it or how.

My first thought was my stepmom. It's something she would do. I'm sure I will get an email or a letter (or something crafty) from Kiki soon that she did. BUT, I never accessed my blog while I was in Phoenix, nor would she know where to go to post or even how to. That option was out.

A couple of people have admin rights to my blog. People I trust and want around. But it wasn't their username. The name was under Kiki. So, someone had to create a profile. I looked up the info and it said the profile was created by me. Huh?

I'm looking at my sitemeter to determine who was on my site and what time, looking at IP addresses and such....meanwhile, Napster is ready to drive to SC to protect me! LOL (Yes, two paranoid friends should not be on the phone at the same time in situations like this! hehe)

So, I send an email out to the people I have given rights. I believe the exact words of the email were, "Please tell me one of you did this or I’m freaking fuck out….. spooky shit!"

If I would have just calmed down a moment, I could have figured it out. But no! After reading/watching stuff on serial killers, getting hang up calls and my sister trying to show of her hacking skills...I was a paranoid chic!

Someone fessed up! I'm not saying who. But after I knew that someone wasn't trying to scare the shit out of me, I was smiling big and laughing up a storm! They conferred with other people that know me to be sure it would be okay. They all just wanted to make me smile!

Which they did! I miss Kiki a bunch and I know if she could type, she'd be on here as much as me! I look forward to more messages from her!

Now....I'm off to make me a drink and check under the bed, in all the closets and behind the shower curtain. Just to make me feel better! :-)

Oh holy cow, that would trip me out! Glad it has a happy ending... ;)

That would piss me off.... but at least it was done with love....

Well, this person is someone I gave access to my blog and we have discussed them helping me out before since I'm so busy!

No being pissed off! Just scared shitless :-)

When your note popped up in my e-mail, I'm sorry, but I started to laugh. It was just the way you phrased it.

Wish I could say I had that good of a sense of humor to have thought of it... But I don't.

That's just kind of funny/amusing... once you get past the scared shitless part.

I am the guilty one! I knew there was a potential for it to go bad, but had no idea this bad!!! I should have left more clues in the post.

It didn't go bad Amy! It just gave my heart a little work out :-) Like I said, I loved it (after I figured no one hacked in) :-)

You always are welcome on my blog! As you or as Kiki!

Well it's funny now but not when we were on the phone together last night when it happened. Not only were you freaked out but I was freaking out too! It is very cute and I'm glad I didn't have to drive 12 hours to come rescue you :)

Posted by: Napster at August 19, 2005 11:29 AM

I would have freaked, too. Glad you figured out who did it...
