Princess Di commemorative plate, gone for good

Handwritten page of a diary dated October 21, 2007

uncle snuck me in to see ‘Paranormal Activity’ last night even though it’s rated R and even though I told him the commercial on TV looked pretty creepy. But that wasn’t the bad part. I could take it. I admit it was kinda hard to go to bed because these people in the movie had demons in their bed, but I got to sleep. Almost no problem.

Then at 3 a.m. I hear this really loud music and see lights dancing around my head and I start screaming like a little girl and my uncle says ‘Dude shut up or you’ll wake up your grandma and she’ll kill me’ and he was right. Pretty soon my grandma is running down the hall swinging a golf club and she ends up cracking one of her commemorative plates she has hanging up in the hall.

Then this morning Uncle Dave is saying to my grandma, ‘I don’t know why you blame me. I didn’t think he’d scream like that — I wasn’t playing a scary song, I was playing ‘I’m a Barbie Girl in a Barbie World.’

Then he showed us the coat he was wearing which he plugged in and she said she probably woulda liked the coat if it hadn’t led to her breaking her one-of-a-kind Princess Di plate which probably couldn’t be replaced any more after all these years Diana’s been dead and buried.
