My wierdest thing hmmm, could it me the painted doll head in my darkroom? Yep, I think that may be it.
Seriously, I will send it to you if you cover shipping. I dont think it could cost much to ship either since its very light.

Old turtle shells w/stuffed men's dress socks as the legs & head. They were my great-aunts and are depression era toys that she made when she was a kid. They are very sentimental to me but most people are disgusted by them.

That sounds kind of interesting. I've never heard of that.
That reminds me...........you all will think I'm gross. I have a real turtle that I found in the mud that had died and still had all the bones still inside the shell. Uh, it's been setting on my porch for.....maybe 2 months now??? I planned to bring it in and reassemble all the bones. Yep, shoulda gone to vet school

ooh! I have been meaning to ask for one of those on freecycle! I HATE wet lettuce and nothing I do gets it sufficiently dry and clean.

I have a fiberglass hood for a 1969 camaro.

I have never owned a camaro. 5 months ago we moved 1500 miles. spent 2 months getting rid of 95% of our stuff. It came down to the last day and I still couldn't get rid of it. So I threw it into the truck.

Thats right I STILL have the stupid hood.

I'm not into car culture at all, but a '69 Camaro just conjures up such cool images.

Do you feel like Steve McQueen, or Billy Jack or like you're gonna go to Woodstock? I would...:

I don't think these odd, unusual, eccentric things are stupid stuff AT ALL. I think everyone needs more of that kind of stuff and less mass produced advertised to within an inch of it's life poor quality breaks in a week stuff that everyone seems to need to have.

Bones are cool. They're Nature. It's reality.

On a related note, I own an inflatable plastic leg with a cartoon image of a woman's face decorating the calve. It serves absolutely zero purpose, and I have no idea what it was originally supposed to be, as I picked it up at a thrift store. I used to have it hanging in my room as a teen. And it's just one of those things I can't get rid of, because I have my doubts that I'll ever find something that bizarre again in my lifetime.

I was helping MIL clean out the basement last year. When her parents died, she boxed everything up (no labels on anything) and shoved it in the basement for 20+ years. She was not at all discerning at the time, so we came upon Jello boxes from the 70s, newspapers, free tchotchis from seminars/workshops/etc., and tons of religious tracts. The wierdest, I thought, was the medicine cabinet. Half used bottles of Tylenol and Pepto Bismol, in glass bottles. She wouldn't get rid of them, thinking a "collector" might want them. Jello boxes and Pepto Bismol are carefully repacked in the basement, now in labelled boxes.

okay I think I may have the turtle beat. Promise not to think less of me but we have a silver and jewelled goat head.

There is a story behind it but if I tell you, you won't think I'm nearly as weird.

Umm... for me, probably the little piece of styrofoam my 7th grade crush once had his mouth on.

Old low-carb milk chocolate cereal. I just hate to get rid of food that's still good, even though the stuff tastes awful.

You could trade it to me for something you could use.
