Something weird happened to me a few days ago. My aunt and I went to a local Lee's (a fried chicken restaurant similar to Kentucky Fried Chicken) and a guy behind the counter saw me and asked, "Hey, is that a blast from the past?" I didn't know what he was talking about, so after a confused pause I replied, "Maybe." I thought that maybe he was making a comment about my clothing, so I made a lighthearted joke. I turned my attention to the menu, but then he came into the main area and stood close to me. I looked at him and he finally asked, "April, right?" I told him, "No, my name's Kara," and he told me, "Oh, you look like a girl I used to work with!" He told me that I had a look-alike in a nearby town and added, "When you said, 'Maybe,' I …Read more >

First there's a quick note- This will be my first blog simulcast on the Creepypasta Wiki and Jay's Horror Network wiki. Excitement! :-D
Last night I was watching some videos on my iPad. I decided to search "Raidra creepypasta" in the off-hand chance someone had narrated another one of my stories, and someone had! Creeparoni had just done a narration of "The Melon Head Illustration". :-D I always feel excited and honored when someone narrates one of my stories.

Most of them were on international versions of The Voice, and I realized that's what it feels like when someone narrates one of your pastas- it feels like when one of the judg…Read more >
I’ve been meaning to do this blog for a while. In my reading I’ve come across a number of strange and unsettling ailments. I had planned to incorporate them into a pasta, but instead I decided to list them in case anyone was interested. Some are scary and others are just bizarre, and some of you may have heard of at least some of these before. Set down your cup of soup for the moment, get a sick bag ready just in case, and let’s get started.

Some time ago , I brought up an unusual Christmas episode from a short-lived show called Woops! (No, I didn’t misspell it; that’s the actual title). I read about it in a book called What Were They Thinking? The 100 Dumbest Events in Television History by David Hofstede (2004). This unconventional episode was ranked number 81 and the article is on pages 37-39. The following is a word-for-word copy of the article about it (including a couple typos as well as awkward passages I would have preferred to leave out). All rights belong to the author, David Hofstede, and the publisher, Back Stage Books.
