I don’t even mind that I’ve had to work today (normal 8.5 hour shift, with no extra pay) because I’ve had a really easy shift and I downed a litre of red bull and the day went really fast.
Judging by the amount of ambulances outside different pubs on my walk home, it seems like people have been out all day acting like idiots, so I’ve hardly missed out on anything (other than more sleep) Plus, I’ve not spent a penny, and earned another £50 to go towards the holiday fund.
Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia PA
Had 2 cups of tea made for me at work today:
1st cup, they’d ran out of sugar.
Sugar pot refilled, Carol started making my second cuppa, then had some customers so I finished it off…added my usual 2 sugars, and realised she’d already put 2 in. I was too polite to chuck it down the sink. SO MUCH SUGAR, VERY BLEURGH
Looking at holidays, and I’m trying to stick to a sensible budget….but then i remember my last holiday was 4 years ago, with my sister and young niece and nephew….I work hard, so maybe I should treat myself?
WAVERLY HILL SANATORIUM
I have received so many messages requesting me to make this post. After looking into it, I realized why.
The hospital was always dedicated to the treatment of tuberculosis patients, a disease that was fairly common in the early 20th Century.
It is estimated that as many as 63,000 people died as the sanatorium. Those deaths coupled with the reports of severe mistreatment of patients and highly questionable experiments and procedures are ingredients for a haunted location.
One of the most famous things about is the death tunnel. So many people were dying because of tuberculosis, that this tunnel was used to carry the bodies out without other patients having to see them.
In room 502 (episode feature in ghost hunters), it was said that there was a murder/suicide of a nurse.
Legend says the nurse found out she was pregnant by the owner of the sanatorium without being married and had contracted tuberculosis, so she hanged herself with a light bulb wire outside the room she was in at the time.
Ghost investigators who have ventured into Waverly have reported a host of strange paranormal phenomena, including voices of unknown origin, isolated cold spots and unexplained shadows. Screams have been heard echoing in its now abandoned hallways, and fleeting apparitions have been encountered.
