Stuff we don't want, but have

Postby SlyReaper » Mon Dec 07, 2009 12:58 pm UTC

To mirror the "Stuff we want but can't have" thread.

I'll start off with: cardboard boxes. I have too many of them. I keep them around because I know I'm going to move to a new flat eventually and will need them, but they take up loads of room.

Build a fort?

I'll say 6 AS exams in January when most people I know only have about 2-3, even the ones who took 5 subjects when I took 4. I have to sit an entire AS in maths after only studying for 4 months because I did double maths. Fuck. That. Shit.

My flat contains a volume slightly greater than 2 rabbit hutches. I can't build a fort. :cry:

Yep, about 5 to 10 extra kilograms here too. Also, something with getting infatuated too easily. And a stressy mom. Maybe a lot of material crap I have but don't need. Lack of self-confidence, I guess. Man, this list could be awesomely long! =)

Simply Orange is excellent. Doesn't exist here, though, so I go for Tropicana. Innocent would be nicer if it wasn't for the fact that their supposedly no bits orange juice definitely has bits, and it doesn't taste quite nice enough to make up for that...

- A tendency to fall too far, too fast in new relationships.
- An assortment of text books I've been too lazy to sell since I graduated (I've lugged them to two new apartments so far and have yet to seriously glance at one of them).
- An impending commute home through the pouring rain, surrounded by Californian drivers who think that rain is a valid doomsday scenario.
- A poster in my cube that everyone on the floor is going to sign to wish our recently laid off coworker well. This seriously interferes with my ability to browse fora and recreational websites while at work.
- Several minor scrapes and bruises I got this past Saturday from throwing myself at concrete.

-Tomb Raider for the Wii. Seriously, I've never played any of the tomb raider games, why would you buy me this?

-My room mate.

-This one sweater that wasn't built for any real human being. Seriously, the upper arms near the biceps are ridiculously tight, the collar is loose and floppy, the wrists are humongous, and the front half is much longer than the back half. That and it seems to be made of steel wool. It's the worst piece of clothing I've ever owned, yet I still bring it with my to college.

-Car troubles. Really annoying car troubles.

-My neighbor in this dorm, who is the most bitchy girl I have ever met. Seriously, when my RA showed up to ask for some change for a charity donating to the children's cancer fund, she said "do you want me to be honest, or do you want me to lie? Cause I could really care less about this."


There's probably more but I tend to block it out.

A crack in the lid of my laptop about 5 cm long, just at the hinge.
Ridiculous amounts of pens/textas that don't work.

A bag full of books which I have read and am not going to ever read again, currently occupying one corner of my room.

That reminds me: Chapped Lips. This proves that god doesn't exist, as he wouldn't design us to have dead lip skin that looks like the cleavage of a seventy year old woman who just bingo'd.

Also, why do I have all of these paint swatches? I don't think I need to have twenty different colors of tan at my house.

Aquaphor is a sign of God's love. It works so very, very well and you won't go through it fast if you're just using it on your lips (I did a five-month run of Accutane and went through about one and a half 1.75 oz tubes, and if you aren't on Accutane you shouldn't need it nearly as often).

I keep all my cardboard boxes and old paper during summer to light my stove during winter. At the end of october I've got a garden shed and an attic full of old paper / cardboard, and a couple of months later it's all gone :-)

Cat litter; my garbage cans are always filled for 80% with that stuff.
A DVD of Pirates of the Caribbean 2.

A DS Lite with an L button that doesn't work, and an R button that only sometimes does. I had this same problem with my last ds (and an eventual broken hinge) and also my GBA SP. I could use a system that doesn't lose functionality in the first few months of usage :(

That reminds me. I have a Zune whose lock button broke off after only two months. Do you know how embarrassing it is to suddenly start hearing 'I Make the Good Girls Go Bad' while on a bus at full volume?

Also ,I wouldn't mind getting rid of my skin tone, since it looks like I spent my infancy in a talcum powder factory.
