    OOH, I’ve got a crappy cell phone, a home sound system covered in a protective layer of dust, and a Need for Speed!

    I’m willing to trade my pet rock, my mood ring, AND a handful of Mexican Jumping Beans. What do you mean, they’re useless? Hours of entertainment, I tell you. Hours! And if you start getting annoyed by the jumping beans, the ring will tell you so.

    Darn, now I’m having posting regret. I should have used that in the actual post.

    The one thing I can say about this ad is that everything actually appears to be spelled correctly, so that’s good news. And rare.

    *digs through pocket*

    A cellphone that keeps calling my old karate instructor, resetting the background pictures, and turning off without prompt… a hair-net… a blue pen… *checks other pocket* … chaptstick from 2006, two more blue pens, two black pens, three purple sharpies, a green sharpie, and a red sharpie. *considers pile of random work-crap now on desk and offers hair-net*

      Candy residue is so much more tempting than my hair-net. Damn, I think I’ve lost this one.

    I have a half-eaten tuna fish sammich, and a stale peanut butter cookie. Not enough? Okay, then how about this game of Hi-Ho Cherrio that is missing the spinner part and some of the plastic counters?

    Three empty vitamin bottles, great for storing screws and whatnots, chocolate beer cake crumbs, a plastic dinosaur which curses my sudden but inevitable betrayal, and the handle bits from a super large binder clip. Uh, but I don’t want the memory card. I thought this was the line for the stuffed raccoon. Oh, Rocky!

    :checks photon futon:

    Let’s see … An almost empty Pringles tube, a paperback, one sock, some paper scraps, what is either a furry hat or a comatose cat … :checks for snoring: it’s a cat, and several partially used balls of yarn. One of the balls has cat spit on it, but they all come with cat hair at no extra charge!

    I have a memory card that holds more than 4 pictures, maybe more like 10, and also the receipt (a bit crumpled and dirty) for said card. I also have this broken hairless Barbie and a three and a half inch floppy disk if you would prefer.

      While packing my life up the other day, I discovered unused, single-sided, 5 ¼” floppy disks. These are 360kb, but I’m pretty sure they are 80-track, and could be made into Flippies.

      Debating keeping them to eBay away.

        That’s amazing. My dad still has a computer with a 5 1/4″ drive, and he still uses it. I’m not sure that drive still works, though.

          Well, for me, not so much amazing, as debris of a life lived during the ascendancy of the personal computer, 80286 came on the market the year I graduated college.

          You build your first three computers from scratch (first one I bought was a 386), and you wind up with “stray bits.”

          I found two “2x” CD-ROM (no, not read-write; just read) too. Also found a couple of Iomega zip drives (would probably have to scour eBay to find hardware for those). I also have a collection of parallel and serial cables, too <sigh>

          Even a BluTooth-to-Serial adapter; go figure.

    OK Sparkles, before I reveal what I’ve got (watch the veils, watch the veils) can you be more precise on the word “like” as in “Like new.” ?

    I do like new. I like new food, new toilet paper, new bathwater, new toothpaste. In fact all those things I insist on being new – second-hand / pre-used is not not good for the above.

    I’ve got some really amazing and rare UNUSED lion prints that can be hung on the wall, and some French Prudential furniture. What I really need is a like-new memory card Do we have a deal?

      TinyBall, I hate to nitpick, but that’s not French Prudential furniture. That armwar and that otterman are clearly French Prevential.
