This was part of the loot I obtained during my three day stint interning at Sub Pop records. I love the cover design but I have never had the means to to play the record inside.

Imbibe! tells the story of Jerry Thomas, famous American bartender and author of the first cocktail book. It includes a large selection of classic cocktail recipes and just about every bartender who takes the cocktail craft seriously owns this book. I keep trying to read it but it just isn't holding my attention.

This movie was lent to me by a guy in one of my business school classes, in 2002. I know this because the only thing I remember about him was he kept insisting that there was proof that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction because his dad was a high ranking military official and the information had been confirmed by reliable sources. I was firmly against invading Iraq and did not believe the weapons existed so we argued a lot when we should have been working on our group project. I never got around to watching the movie.

The classic food delivery game where you work for a burger delivery service! No destination is too remote, too secure, or too rugged for this elite team of ninja to penetrate.
It's hard to let go of a game where you get to be a ninja but I think it has been at least four years since my copy was last played.
"Guaranteed delivery in 30 minutes or less, or we commit Seppuku!"
Status: Dibbed, pretty twenty sided dice included

I have a serious lack of hair styling ability so if a hair stylist recommends a product to me I'll usually buy it. Just in case it turns out to be the miracle product that will make everything easy.
This spray wax is great for giving your hair texture and can help you achieve punk rock messy hair. Unfortunately, I always seem to underspray or overspray so I have not had much luck with it but my hair looked fantastic when my stylist used it on me!

I feel posting a CD is kind of cheating since I have the option to back it up, but mp3s don't have a physical manifestation in my apartment. At least I only have a handful left at this point! Most of them were sold to the record store for pennies on the dollar.

These pushpins were a gift from one of the families that hosted me on my first trip to Japan. I think they are adorable, but alas I do not own a bulletin board so they just live in the bottom of a drawer. I hope someone will give them a good home!

Buying newspapers from historical dates always seems like a good idea to me but I have yet to experience a desire to look through them at a later date. Maybe I'll regret this someday but probably not enough to make this a bad choice.
Assortment includes: The Seattle Times, Seattle PI, Seattle Weekly, The Stranger

There was a time when I thought my graphic novel collection was the one thing I would pass down to my children. Then the library finally started stocking them and I grew out of many of my titles.
Yesterday when I was looking through my bookshelf I thought about what it would really mean to hold on to something for possible offspring. I would be keeping books I'm probably never going to read again in my possession for fifteen plus years just in case my teenage love for comics was genetic. These ones are not even sentimental. It's time to let them go.

The pretty fabric has saved this dress in the past but not today!
This cheongsam was bought at an anime convention 6 years ago and I have not worn it since. Back then I would occasionally succumb to buying something I thought was pretty even if it did not fit me and that was the case here. I have since learned that wearing clothes that fit is the most important element of dressing well and I am a much more cautious shopper.

I loved this device until I finally obtained a smartphone. It doesn't do the internet but it is a pretty good organizer with a decent selection of time-killing games. I spent hours weeding out the crappier recipes that came with PDACookbook and adding my own, which is probably why I've held on to it for so long.
Software includes Hearts, PDACookbook, TopSudoku, and Vexed.

When I moved to the Pike/Pine corridor it took me months to learn how to sleep to the constant sounds of drunken revelers outside my apartment. Earplugs seemed like a plausible solution but I've never found a pair I've liked so this assorted pack seemed like a great idea. Unfortunately I dislike earplugs much more than I realized and I gave up after four pairs.
This trial pack of earplugs included two individually packaged pairs each of twenty eight different foam earplugs. Varieties include "Camo," "Nitro," "Nascar," and "Tattoo."
