This weekend Sarah and I were cleaning out the attic. It's the first time I've truly parted with anything major since moving out of home ten years ago - nothing like going through ten years worth of accumulated junk. I kid you not, we took two pickup truck loads worth of junk out - one went to Technology Recycling, and the other is going to Goodwill.

We also built shelves to hold what was still there - sentimental stuff (a few boxes of college and fraternity stuff, and a box of high school stuff), Christmas decorations and stuff we can't store elsewhere in the house due to lack of space. All in all, a productive weekend.

In one of the bins I came across a stack of CDs. I set them aside and started going through them once the work was done. Unsurprisingly, most of them were audio mix CDs. I never burned a lot of data CDs, but in a time before I had an iPod (or an iPhone now), I used to burn CDs to listen to in the car or in a mobile CD player. And there were four or five mix CDs of various stuff I burned while in college.

Full circle from burning them years ago: I went through each one and created a playlist in iTunes to match the CD.

What about your "private" box?

The one Crazywolf was supposed to destroy in the event of your unexpected demise?

If Sarah is looking over your shoulder, it's a box full of...children's toys. Robert used to collect stuff like Care Bears and Thundercats and all that, and didn't have the heart to part with them after all these years. Isn't that sweet?

It's certainly not a box full of...

Yeah, I'll shut up now.

The box full of furry porn? It's in the office. :P

Oh. You feel it's safe there?


Do you actually have co-workers who share that interest? If you do, you're one incredibly lucky bastard.

Oh, no not at work. My coworkers are anti-furry, so I don't bring it up. :P

It's on a shelf in my home-office upstairs. Actually, my next project is pulling all that stuff out, pulling the old shelving out and building new shelving that doesn't totally suck. :P

Aha. Labeled something like "Misc.", no doubt.

On a related note, I love it when both parties are at their computers and comments are almost instantaneous.
