Weird Weird Goings On

Okay. Weird weird weird things in the house.
Phoneline- dead and cannot be resurrected. Toaster - shortcircuited. Every computer I've touched when I've felt stressed has crashed and frozen in a big way even though it normally works fine when I'm not stressed. Similarly THREE lightbulbs have blown within moments of each other (in three separate rooms, and the fuses are all fine).

The television and the kettle appear to have been switching themselves on/off quite spontaneously, without such paltry aid of mere mortals pushing their buttons.

And now... a glass shelf in the bathroom has exploded I didn't come anywhere near it. Nothing came anywhere near it. There was nothing heavy on it. I was sitting in the living room chatting with Natasha and suddenly we heard this termendous bang and saw that the glass shelf had snapped in the middle and the sink was full of shards.

Frankly, I am at a loss about how to explain these incidents.
Maybe my hidden telekinetic powers are flaring up again.

Well, call me a loon, but...poltergeist, maybe? They aren't
like the movie. They're usually benign and just sort of

You can laugh now :)

The situation is very intriguing, though!

While I wouldn't dismiss the telekinetic theory out of hand, I'd consider calling the phone company and an electrician.

Was the glass shelf made of toughened glass (it probably was for safety reasons)?
This has been known to explode spontaneously because of the tensions built up within the glass in the manufacturing process.

The lightbulbs probably aren't suitable for the voltage/current.

Computers crashing is just because of windows - i don't even have to touch them to freeze them - just chant 'MacOSX' at them and windows seems to recognise it's own inherent instability, and does the decent thing.

Glass tends to go pop because it's badly made, and the atmospheric conditions in your building do tend to encourage the expansion of any air trapped by the manufacturing procss - expansive air being good for blasting glass to smithereens when there seems like nothing could have caused it.

I liked everyone's explanations for the glass shelf it all sounds very logical and feasible.

I think the electricity out of whack is down to me though. Because I've noticed that everysingle time I begin to truly stress then electrical appliances in my vicinity (regardless of whether I am at home or not) will begin to break down in a rather dramatic way. Case in point- computer - as soon as I calmed down it began to work beautifully.

I hadn't heard of EMF beforehand (really I am totally clueless about how many things in the mundane world work) but I would not be the least surprised if London has screwed up wiring considering the medieval nightmare that it's plumbing is....
