    In 1993 I was visiting my boyfriend at the manson; at this time it was a fraternity house. We played with a wiji board at night during a thunderstorm. The chandelier over the table were playing on began swinging, this went on for several minutes. During my visits Ithere i often felt like someone was watching me, I really never felt comfortable there.
