My junk drawer

All of these things are going to the thrift store if you people don't want them. Tell me what you want and email me (ljname at gmail) your address--if I can't drop it off, I will mail it. I am a real good mailer.

  • 22 gauge crafting wire, 12 spools in different colors for a total of 48 yards
  • 4 foam paint "brushes"
  • a clock that chimes bird sounds
  • type B surgical tubing, a couple of yards or so
  • gift wrap: "Ideal Girl" and "Military"
  • 2 packages of disco ball bead curtains
  • a beat-up escape route map of the DC area, c.1960
  • Magic Garden, one of those grow-a-crystal-landscape toys
  • 1 black hat, think "1980s real estate agent"
  • 1 unused yo yo
  • "Beat-Nik", a wind-up toy (with key!) from 1964 with its battered box
  • Y2K Bug, another wind-up toy from another era
  • 4 heavy brass wall hooks descending from brass quail
  • 4 1/8" round wicks for oil lamps or the like
  • a little box of antique brass upholstery nails, 7/16" x 1-1/2"
  • a little box of 60 red thumb tacks
  • 1 bad habits poster printed on plastic (Indian Educational vignettes)
  • 1 DelMarVa keep-out/avian health poster printed on something like thick Tyvek

There is so much more; why?! I am cottoning to Brian's idea of leaving everything behind. I'll try not to start a new collection of stuff at the new place but I am clearly an acquirer by nature.

I have all my clothes except a laundry basket's worth packed. Theoretically, all I have to do is take that and my essential papers and my computer. Today Brian asked if I was taking my computer! I'm glad I didn't panic. He was simply inquiring as to whether I'd prefer to take my laptop instead. It's the first time he's acknowledged that I gave it to his parents to use--of course I'm not going to yank it away from them. Moreover, I never became much of a Mac user. For a second I thought he thought I would be computerless and that was quite a shock.

I'll take the beaded curtains, the wicks, and the hat. Will you be at ednoria's yoga party?

Bless you.

Now I will! I might not make the yoga portion, but I will get there as soon as I can.

Awesome. I'm kid-wrangling, so if you get there in time for yoga and want to toss V into the menagerie, do feel free.

I have every intention of starting a new collection of stuff at this house!

I don't want anything, but I believe I have V's striped sweater (white with pink & other colors). So if you're dropping off stuff to muzikmaker21, you can pick up too.

Since I'm trying to get divest myself of stuff, I don't want anything, but a number of people have asked me if you will be at werewulf's new year's party. I have said that I didn't think so but if you are, would you let me know so I can provide the correct response?

I am sorry to report that your initial response was the correct one; I can't attend the party but I feel like a celebrity with all these people asking after me! I shall instruct my people to prepare a stack of 8x10 glossies so that I can autograph them immediately.

I would like the clock that does the bird calls. chickenhat's mother has one that I have always admired, and I could use a clock in the basement, and it would be a nice thing to see on my wall & remind me of you.

We won't be at the yoga party, but we see [Bad username: ednoria> & <lj user = ] often enough so I think you could bring it there & leave it for us.

Thanks so very much, and I hope Columbus is good to you!

That "bad username" was meant to be ednoria and kugelblitz.

And I just called ednoria and confirmed that this plan is OK by her. (Did that in the wrong order, I know!)

Great, then that's what I will do. Chirp!

That would work, but the bad usernames are skipping town shortly! I don't mind bringing it by your place; I am running around this weekend anyway. Can I leave it on the porch? Well-disguised as, say, a sack? A sack accompanied by a stack of pyrateware (they are still trying to find their way to [Unknown LJ tag]'s)?

Gah! You know who I mean! Stupid tags!

I look forward to seeing it all land in my possession & the suspense of the method by which it happens is a lot of fun!

Although, back porch would be better.

Shouldn't you USE the escape map as you escape out of here?

D'oh! Although I hardly qualify as critical personnel...
