Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I helped put together a pile of stuff to give away, and a corresponding list, yesterday.

  • 1 brown leather wallet
  • 1 costume 14th Century merchant's pantaloons + codpiece
  • 1 empty tea tin, suitable for storing small objects
  • 1 foot-and-a-half steel pipe, threaded ends
  • 1 mouse pad
  • 1 plastic (costume) fencing foil
  • 3 metal candlesticks
  • 4 plastic squirt guns
