Weird things have been happening with the electricity in my apartment this week. (thread)
First, 2 bulbs have burned out in the hallway in less than a week. At this point I've just left it alone, rather than get a ladder again.
But the strangest thing has to do with the backlight on my TV. It's an LED strip that plugs into the TV itself via USB.
The TV has to be on in order for the backlight to be on. But last night the backlight was flickering on and off by itself.
I noticed it just sometime before dawn, when I woke up and went into the kitchen to get some water.
I'd barely gotten back into bed again when I saw a faint light come on in the living room. After a few seconds, it went dark again.
I went back into the living room and stood there watching the backlight go on & off, on & off, for at least a few minutes. It was bizarre.
Eventually it stopped, and now the backlight doesn't work at all. It's only a couple months old, so it shouldn't be dead already.
Anyway, I couldn't get back to sleep, so I went to the diner near my apartment. It was the only thing open at 4 AM.
(I had eggs over easy with ham. It was too much ham, but the eggs were pretty good.)
When I got back home, the sun was starting to come up so I figured I might as well shower and go into work early.
I showered and brushed my teeth, then headed into the bedroom to get dressed.
As I passed the front door, I thought I heard a faint scratching sound from the other side.
It was so soft I wasn't sure it had really happened. I went over the the door but I was too scared to look through the peephole.
I couldn't bring myself to actually put my face that close to the sound, so I opted to take a photo through the peephole instead.
Since there's a skylight just outside my door, the hall was awash in faint yellow-green light. I snapped a couple photos.
At first the pictures didn't seem like anything. Just blurry nothingness.
But as I analyzed it, and started noticing things. Part of a face. An ear, and an eye staring right back at me.
I think maybe it's time to get someone else involved. It's obvious this isn't going to stop until I do something.
I'm just not sure what that is yet. I'll let you all know when I figure it out.
