Public Service Announcement: Free stuff, food, refreshments, this Saturday

My computer just crashed (don't worry, it will recover), leaving me without easy access to everyone's email addresses, so I'm posting this here:

I just bought a house "as is", with a basement crammed to the brim with junk^H^H^H^H treasures. If you help me clean it out, you can grab the best of it! I get first dibs, but don't need any more junk in my life, so will only use it in the case of fist-sized diamonds and the like. Otherwise, you touch it first, it's yours. I have no idea what's in there, but there are rumors of "geology equipment" (the previous previous owner was a surveyor) and "paddling stuff". There are also major appliances (oven, fridge, etc) but I can't attest to their condition. You need to be able to haul away anything you want. I'll provide food and refreshments.

Hope to see you there!

We definitely need a top 10 list of the weirdest things found in Kim's new basement. And I won't be there for the big Saturday cleanup, so you can't put me on the list, Jenny.

In cleaning out my mother's attic I found a time capsule of a wardrobe, circa 1969, the last time my mother's body was pre-pregnancy. It was awesome. Hope you get as lucky, so to speak, with Leeta's basement.

It is great to find such treasure troves, I moved into a house a few months back and in the cellar was a couple of brand new still covered barbecues it was a great little find but I still can not figure out why there was two brand news in the cellar when the prvious owner also left a very good one in the back yard.

I was in my uncles last week, he asked me to clear out his attic, mostly junk but we sent some things to the local auction room but the biggest suprise was a halfords sat nav system, brand new, my uncle does not drive, he said it came in the post he did not know what it was so put it away.
