None for months.. then five come all at once. Well, let's not get too excited. 5 women were texting me on Wechat today. An ex that dates back to 2006 and got in touch recently, a Mongolian girl who turned down a place at Oxford (silly billy), a Polish girl I've not been in touch with for over a month, a recent fling and a Couch Surfing girl from Xi'an who is doing a 'project' at the university here until December. It does sometimes seem that girls mysteriously get wind of your popularity- albeit ever so flimsy and transient- and jump on the bandwagon.
I met two of them and showed them both my Ovilus III, an obscure ghost detector that set me back over two hundred dollars and may or may not contact the dead. It is a mail order device hand built by an American engineer and you can look it up on Youtube. I had never used it until today. It apparently will do nothing until a ghost manipulates the hardware/or it just randomly selects a word from the very limited dictionary. Still, the results were interesting.
I was with the Mongolian girl in the afternoon and just before she had to leave I brought out the device and switched it on. We waited for a few moments and then it selected the words 'time'- 'country' and 'descent' in that order. It was indeed time for the girl from the other country to descend the stairs.
Later, when I was with the Han girl I did the same thing. brought it out just before she had to go. (The curfew). I recall it came up with maybe 3 words again but I only remember two. I asked if there was a ghost there. It returned the word 'placebo'. Then I think the word lay. And maybe I had just been considering as a potential 'lay' and the person in the room was not a ghost, but a spirit. (Ghosts are trapped, spirits are not).
Anyway, authentic or not the Ovilus is a bewitching device I might use to persuade students to study harder.
NEWS FLASH: Just been speaking to Urhan on WeChat and she asked me to remind her what the words the Ovilus said were. I told her and she replied 'it was very strange, it indeed read my mind'.
