Nobody Move or the Clutter Gets It!

OK, this is the fourth clutter list. As usual, it's free to good homes, especially if we can work out how to unite you with it. Update: all gone now.

A Simpsons' "It's Duff time at Moe's Tavern" illuminated wall clock. Boxed, unused.

Cookbooks:
Sainsbury's Balti Cookbook (Pat Chapman)
Sainbury's Microwave Cooking (Carol Bowen)


Indoor fountain in a sort of Japanese style (a bit like the one depicted here though perhaps not quite as nice). Comes with pebbles. This was quite useful, because I'd vaguely hankered after an indoor fountain for years, until we got one as a present. This one is perfectly nice, and turns out to be a complete mathom. So now we know that we definitely don't want one.

2001 Weight Watchers materials -- membership book, 9 weekly books, shopping guide, eating out guide, cardboard points calculator, blank trackers, wallet.

3 ears of decorative sweetcorn, designed for display. I thought it would look nice on the kitchen wall. I must have been mad.

A Fuji NP-100 lithium ion battery for a digital camera (eg the Fuji MX-700).

The new issue (8) of gorgeous Mac magazine iCreate. Plus CD-Rom

PC game: Lego Creator (CD only I fear)

A hang-round your neck rubber mobile phone holder

A piece of cardboard advertising the Fellowship of the Ring, with a lovely picture of Aragorn on it.

An Elvi aubergine suede jacket, size 24; little worn but I really don't think I'm going to, the colour doesn't suit me at all.

Last chance saloon: the following previously mentioned things will be going to the tip/charity shop tomorrow morning if nobody has shouted:

TV stand, travel cot, Divine Endurance, Psiwin, the Easyball mouse, World almanac, System Shock II, Quake III, Fallout II, Civilisation: Call to Power, hi-fi speakers, 35mm enlarger, skis, Mirrycles.

I'll take the Simpsons clock off your hands. And now I think about it, the trackball, too. Not sure when I'll see you next, though...

trackball Mouse. I meant mouse.

It *is* a trackball really. It's huge; designed for small children but actually also very useful for people with RSI and other disabilities. It's also much beloved of the MAME community for, you know, getting that proper Missile Command feeling. Anyway, tis set aside for you.

I'm bemused... are you trying to make people take this stuff off your hands, or not...?

[g]

Actually, there I was trying to be entertaining. I probably should have just thrown the decorative sweetcorn away.

Am interested in Weight Watchers delightful bits of paper to fill in and track stuff EDIT - no, no I'm not. I have plenty of bits of paper that do the job quite well enough.

Mmmm, aubergine, fancy. Would go nicely with Ang's liver... I'd love the jacket depending on how it looks when I try it on. Does one need to fill it, or would it look okay on someone who was only (say) a size 20?

I'd like the Lego Creator game please. Can send SAE.

But do you want the WW instruction books, or just the trackers? If just the trackers I'd personally just use a notebook...

I'll put the jacket aside for when we see you. I have three of these (!) in dark green, dark blue and the aubergine, which I bought because they were incredibly cheap in a sale.

Will you be at Tim & Marcia's barbie? It strikes me that that might in any case be a good event to bring clothes to for bring-and-give-away. Cos if you don't want it I bet I can find it a home there... Actually, what we probably ought to do is have a girls' bring-and-give-away clothes event...

There is a risk that Lego Creator won't work as it's been knocking around for a while. At any rate, I will post it.

Actually, what we probably ought to do is have a girls' bring-and-give-away clothes event...

Oh, yes. I still have a load of clothes to give away, and I keep seeing Mike looking at them with a "going in the bin..." expression!

I'd be up for that - I have ludicrous amounts of clothes and should really get rid of a lot of them.

Actually, if you had this sometime in the next month, I could join in...

What size (etc.) are the hi-fi speakers? (I should have asked you this -- and asked to see them -- last Friday, shouldn't I?)

They're a jolly good sort of size; 14"x8"x8" (so not too big but reasonably powerful). Finished in a good 80s black wood finish. They're pretty good speakers -- Steven complained when I described them as 'from his first separates system' -- they're just from the first one that he bought carefully by himself. They're B&W DM550s.

I think they're a bit big to get on a bike, and the current plan is to cycle to you tomorrow. Straightforward to bring by train or bus though.

I'd be grateful if you could put them aside for me, please. We can discuss collection tomorrow.

As to tomorrow, though: are you intending to swing by the house first (in which case it would have to be before noon), or go direct to the allotment?

We were planning just to come over to the allotment. We'll get the speakers to you some other time.

*wipes tear from eye*

And now you finally realise that it was, in fact, just another piece of tat :)

I have rocket plants for you. And they're still alive. If I can think of anything/anywhere we might possibly both be at, at around the same time, I'll e-mail you. Oops, you were meant to be getting rid of things, not acquiring more!

Yes, yes, it was, though I enjoyed it hugely for a little while. Would you like it?

Ooh, rocket plants. Things that actually go in holes in the garden don't count as tat! And if I have to dig up some of the borage that is currently taking over the world, then so be it.

No, I don't want it back! I donated it to the auction you bought it from :)
