Forgot to post about the odd thing that happened Monday night. There I was, fast asleep, when I'm awoken by this loud crash followed by the dulcite tones of a furby singing happily. Scared witless as to what on Earth was happening, I quickly switched on the light and scanned the room. Nothing was amiss, so I got up and went to investigate the sounds of singing.

My furby normally sits on top of my Sun monitor, but I found it lying on the floor below. For reasons I have yet to determine, it had launched itself off the monitor in its sleep, crashing into a pile of DVDs that happened to be in the same half of the room and land on the floor. I can't see how it could have even gone near the DVDs as they were in front of the monitor and the furby landed to the side and wasn't near the front to start with.

My first and so far only guess is that the flat is haunted. The disgruntled spirit is obviously so miffed that I'm moving out that it picked up the furby and dropped it onto the DVDs. Given it's previous lack of interest in my affairs I can't see why it's bothering.

Maybe your ghost just hates Furby's?!

Could do. I have had the furby for a couple of years now, so it's hard to say. I shall have to wait and see what happens in my new flat.

Or maybe your Furby is possessed? They do have slightly scary eyes.
One of the rooms I used to live in was haunted. I woke up once and there was a ghost in my bed.

A simple explanation

Your Furby is a type of robot. If the movies have taught us anything it is that all robots inevitably take one of the following career paths:



  1. go crazy and try to kill all the humans (HAL, Skynet, Frankenstein�s Monster)

  2. go crazy and try to become human (Lt. Comdr. Data, Pinocchio, Number Five)


You must determine whether your Furby is a type-1 or a type-2. It is likely that it has observed you watching DVDs and was trying to imitate you when you found it � suggesting it is a type-2. If it were a type-1, you would have found your Furby singing nonchalantly next to a half-completed death ray. You still need to be vigilant. Check it every day for telltale glowing red eyes. If it does turn out to be a type-1 then please remember that trying to kill all the humans is a perfectly natural and healthy stage in its development and you should give it lots of love and support but be firm if it starts to rampage. Alternatively, you could just post it to someone you don't like.
