girlyswot: (curiouser and)
I'm moving (again) at the end of the month, which means I have a flat full of furniture to dispose of. None of it's worth much. Quite a lot was given to me, or bought from the charity shop or similar. It's serviceable but not pretty. So I've joined freecycle, to give away whatever I can.

It is mindboggling to see the kind of stuff people are offering/requesting. Here's a selection of just some of the weirdest:

2 pairs of tinted prescription contact lenses
2 sticks of lard
Wee foot rest
40 pillows
Green Shields Stamps (remember those?)

Mystical ornaments
RAF badges (no timewasters, please)
Used tennis balls
Oil tank
Broken Sony PSP

Scottish specials:
Shinty stick
Highland dancing kilt

Not to mention the livestock: kittens, puppies, gerbils, ducks...

Nor the woman looking for a boat in any condition (wreck preferred) to get her husband out of the house when he's home from the Navy.
