Want Playboy?

I'm clearing out space. I have a bunch of issues of Playboy magazine. Not sure why I kept them in the first place, cause Playboy has always been one of those magazines that is better in theory than in practice. Perhaps it's just that such things were verboten in my younger days so I accepted people's stashes when they got rid of them. I don't think I've even opened the covers on half of them.

Anyway, I'm getting rid of them. If anyone wants them speak up, or they go in recycling. Some from the early and mid 80s. Some from 96 to 02. Free if you come get them.

I'm keeping the Debbie Gibson issue.

A Friending I Will Go

Just re-added a bunch of people I used to have on my friends list but dropped for what were probably good reasons at the time but I can't remember why anymore. I'm a flake. Feel free to ignore or block me if you are pissed about it.

That being said, I'm making a huge effort to make this journal completely public. Which means there probably won't be anything in here about who I'm sleeping with or trying to sleep with, or who I'm ticked at. Unless I don't care if there's drama over it. I'll be going back and opening up a fair number of older entries (particularly family stuff) and making completely private other stuff.

I didn't really have any secrets, but some things I kept under friends wrap so as to not upset mom.

There's one category of stuff that will stay friends only, but it's pretty limited in scope. You'll figure it out eventually if I post anything about it.

Making space

This weekend has been all about making space. In addition to the Playboys, i got rid of about six feet worth of other magazines. All sorts of miscellaneous stuff has been tossed, including old manuals, electronic equipment (bye bye Qwest Actiontec modem), etc. I've also put a bunch of stuff on the free shelf in the basement. My discarded items are in demand. Other people put stuff there and it stays there for weeks before the manager tosses it. My stuff gets grabbed within a day usually. Course, it's stuff like a stoneware plate set missing a few pieces, an Office 2000 installation CD, a can of gunpowder (don't ask), etc. Stuff people can use!

Also, I'm finding many long lost things, and sometimes things I didn't know I had. Some saving bonds purchased in the 1970s for instance. The item I never expected to find though was my Mercury membership card!

I am going to attempt to unload my car tonight. It's been full of stuff since Thursday.
