Barb left a little while ago. As much as I'd like it to be okay, it's difficult when she's here. She is going on with things, and is doing well in school, and I'm so glad for that.

But it is a reminder of a whole lot of things that won't happen, a whole lot of plans that will never come to fruition. Yeah, I make new plans and have new dreams, but I can't help feeling... I don't know, sad doesn't really cover it.

There is going to be a bunch of stuff that needs to find a new home. Everything from little knicknacks to weird kitchen appliances to clothes to books. And I don't think it's really good garage sale material, it's a lot of assorted stuff. I think it might be much better to do a massive donation to someplace that can use it, unless there's going to be another MISFITS garage sale?

I think more than anything I just want to be rid of it, not have to deal with it. And no, it's not ready to go yet, it's spread all over. I'm talking as-I-get-to-it.

Maybe I should just put it on the front lawn with a sign that says "take what you want".

And I have a bunch of paint and stain that mom brought down that I'll never use. Maybe some theatrical department could use it? I'd hate to destroy it if it's useful...

Ah, such is life.

I'd love to come in and walk around and help you get rid of some of that stuff. There were some LJ folks that did a garage sale dressed in bikinis. I could do that. Stand in your yard and hold stuff...maybe I could flash for the really cool stuff. Or not. Hee.

When Sasha had her garage sale, she was surprised at the number of men that came to shop, even though they didn't buy anything. I had to laugh.

I like the idea of a bikini garage sale, though honestly I am pretty daunted by the idea of a garage sale at all. I really don't want to deal with all the stuff, and I don't think the return would really be worth the time that I'd have to put into it. I'd actually rather donate the stuff and just have a bunch of bikini girls over to the house for a party.

It's not bad stuff, but there's not a lot in the way of furniture or anything really unique (other than a few ebay-bound items). It's all relatively small stuff. Books, some games, kitchen appliances, knicknacks, paddywax, give a dog a bone.

I do have some specialty items that need to go away. I have a nifty D-size plotter. I have a bunch of used EPROM burners. A nifty stereo compressor. A laserdisc player with a bunch of great laserdiscs. A big box full of Cat5 ethernet cables, 40 feet long.

Ah hell, I should just make a list.

Only my experience, might be different now. Write to officers at misfit dot org.

The biggest impediment to a MISFITS garage sale was always finding someone to host it, that same person must also be willing to fiddlefuck around with other donations.

Freecycle. Put up a list and people come to your house and make it go away.
