It’s been two + weeks since our last performance of Former Business Partners: Everything Must Go! And this is the exact time that my roommates’ cats start pawing at the giant tote bag I keep my props in, wherein I realize I never put the baloney in the fridge. The baloney has now gotten so gaseous…

Yesterday you guys said that centipedes were indigenous to the wetlands and rainforest, not found in North America. I believed you, because I wanted to believe you. YOU LIED.
You said that centipede bites are dangerous, because centipedes are like scorpions, and a single bite from a predatory…

Guys, I don’t know how to use tumblr so I think I rebloged this twice. Sorry, but also, hey, I’m only human.
Person stalking me, responds to Wilfredo (I think). If you see him call the police. #serious
Hi guys, sorry I wasn’t more specific before, I’ve been running around. Here come the full story (quickly):
In 2004 or so I met this person briefly after an improv show I had in Caracas, he immediately started emailing me and going to shows I had all around town. As a performer I, of course, promote my shows so anyone can find me anytime. At first it seemed normal, I even replied some emails he had sent me, no different than other people who had sent me emails, the improv show I was in was pretty big in my city (400 people venue sold out three times a week six to nine months every year for several years) and I was receiving a lot of fan mails and friend requests online I had decided that it would be good karma to respond to everyone and at least say thank you and remember their names. This was no different than many other emails… for a while.
Later, near the time in which I decided to come to NY, this person contacting me and showing up in places had become a problem. He seemed to need more time and attention, to come to every show and to ask me things like “Do you have a car here?” and “can I get a ride?” and then “Why are you mad at me?” “Can we talk?” (this man is a stranger) he would also consistently ask me out on drinks or ask me to talk aside after my shows, he’d wait alone outside for a long time as I was picking up my wardrobe or getting out of make up, etc. Then my theater friends consistently had to scort me out. I was directing a weekend play, acting in a matinee musical and doing my improv shows late at night at the time and he would show up in a lot/most of these events. He came to shows and expect me to address him afterwards every time. He would mumble nonsense and ask me out over and over despite my repetitive rejections and literally telling him he needed to stop coming to so many shows because, frankly, he was starting to freak me out. He would also send me an overwhelming amount of emails on a daily bases, so many I had to close my old email account.
The first time I told him to stop I felt like a dick, you know “Oh there’s a fan, I’m no one really but here I am telling him to go away instead of being thankful, I’m a pretentious crap” so I was nice for a long time, more than I was comfortable for, but I finally got the point I had to say something, over and over again… At first it felt like he thought ALSO “she’s a dick, I can’t believe it” and I felt guilty but he wasn’t stopping, in fact he did MORE and it was too much and very scary.
I finally moved to NYC and he kept contacting me, at first very angry that I had moved and calling me a traitor. Thankfully it slowed down a LOT and I lost contact with him for almost two years but two years ago I started receiving emails from him again. All is if it had never stopped and his anger got worse. I think he might have thought we had a back and forth relationship and me not answering was the same as answering. He found me on Facebook. He would open profiles, email me something really hateful and scary, threats (as if we’ve had a love relationship for years and now i was in bad terms) and then close the profiles, I blocked I don’t know how many of his profiles and changed my name and security options on my Facebook account. Based on some of his emails I have reasons to believe he came to NY in 2010 or 2011 and I was terrified. I got a pepper spray and warned the Theatre and the police. I never saw him but he made it sound as if he was here.
As I was looking for ways to let him know he needed to stop I remembered that MAYBE we had a friend in common… It wasn’t much but it was enough of a link, I have a friend who’s brother might have gone to college with this stalker. So I emailed him and said “I don’t know you well or if you keep in touch with this person but tell him I am contacting the authorities and he must stop.” The friend denied any contact with him but the stalking stopped either way. Until last week.
He emailed me at my YouTube account. There are some comments on my videos that are from him. He emailed me about 10 times now and said, amongst other things, that he is good now and that he is not “like John Lennon’s crazy killer” or like Selena’s killer, or like that crazy guy in The Bodyguard. In a second email he said he wasn’t going to kill me. Then… he referenced not killing me again.
I am not sure where this person is right now, I don’t know if he’s in Finland, Venezuela, NY or China. I only know that every time it seems he goes away he comes back saying scarier and scarier things. Mentioning he’s not gonna kill me has put me on the edge and that’s why I need your guys’ eyes.
I’m gathering all the emails from him and filing with the police again, probably a restraining order to serve him though restraining orders are served only if the person approaches me and, in this case, that I know of, most of the contact is online through different profiles he opens and closes right away. Sneaky/tricky.
This person is psychotic and this has not stopped and seem to only have gotten worse. He lives in an alternate reality and he is obsessed with me and thinks we are “The same.” The contact is fewer but really intense and the things he says are very scary.
If you see him report him please. I believe this person to be very dangerous. Thank you guys
