Been there!!

But there seems to be an over flow of books in my apartment. There is about four bookshelves, and four shelves high of them. Mostly paperbacks, stacked three deep and about 14 high. So I got a NOOKcolor and there is now over a hundred of them on that little gadget at this time and climbing.

Yes I enjoy reading and am a very voracious reader. And outside of a dog a book is a man's best friend, and inside the dog, it is to dark to read.

Computer parts!

Every time one of my PC's kicks the bucket, I strip it of the good parts and use them to save some money building the next one. Over the years, I've accumulated a half-dozen to a dozen each of CD drives, hard drives, and floppy drives. Floppy drives, for god's sake! And RAM. I swear I have a bucket of obsolete ram. And a couple spare video cards...
Anyone need a 2800+ Athlon XP chip? Or a 1.2ghz Pentium III?

Every once in a while I entertain the thought of throwing it all away, but... but... I might need it someday!

Rubber bands. Must be a fetish of some sort, but whenever I see one laying around I pick it up thinking "I might need that for something..." and the accumulate in large quantities.

I have near sixty numbers on my cell phone for pizza delivery from Maine to Florida and the Bahamas. I'm pleased with this collection. They take up less space than my banana stickers. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

I've got several to submit:

1. Coat Hangers! I can never find paper clips but coat hangers abound. I'm wondering if both are really the same alien life form. As paper clips mature, they go hide somewhere and undergo metamorphosis, emerging as coat hangers.

2. Odd nuts, bolts, and screws. And nothing ever matches, of course.

3. I used to have a pile of old computers and computer parts, but in a fit of passion I recycled all that when they local government had an electronics recycling day. It was two car loads - trunk, back seat, and passenger seat.

At first I thought I was above all this hoarding, but then I realized I've got nearly a 55 gallon drum of PVC pipe fittings. And you can't really even use them on a boat, can you?
