Free Stuff  
So about a week from now i'm planning on moving most of the big stuff in my apartment. Actually, i'm planning on getting rid of most of the big stuff in my apartment. I still need to check with Goodwill to see what they'll accept, but the rest of it is, uh going to a dump or something? Unless anyone wants any of the following: (And note that none of the stuff is in any kind of condition that could be called new) The one condition on claiming most of these things is that you have to come pick it up and transport it yourself, so i don't really expect any takers :)

2 refrigerators
1 hide-a-bed couch
1 twin matress, er 2 twin mattresses, um, one of those twin beds that has an upper and lower mattress thing, but just the mattresses, nothing else.
1 pappasan chair (whose cushion is covered in cat hair, and there's a break in one of the piece of wicker that's been somewhat taped up)
1 papasan cushion sans chair (also covered in cat hair, even more of it probably)

There're two more items i haven't decided about yet, my microwave, and my old futon. (Yes, i do own three beds.) I'd certainly be happy to own the microwave out again (When morna was moving out of her place she told me she still had my microwave, to which i responded, "i own a microwave?" :)

I've also got a stack of books i need to give away or sell to a used bookstore or something. These are actually all new hardbacks, they're SFBC books that i didn't actually mean to get but ended up with anyways cause i wasn't paying attention =P

Anne Rice - Blood and Gold
Anne Rice - Blackwood Farm
Alan Dean Foster - Star Wars: The Approaching Storm
Stephen King - From a Buick 8
Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson - Dune: House Corrino
Brian Hervert & Kevin J. Anderson - Dune: the Butlerian Jihad
Walter Jon William - Star Wars: the New Jedi Order: Destiny's Way
Stephen King & Peter Straub - Black House
R.A. Salvatore - Star Wars: Episode 2: Attack of the Clones
James Luceno - Star Wars: Cloak of Deception
Troy Denning - Star Wars: the New Jedi Order: Star by Star

One might think from this that SFBC does a lot of Star Wars books. Well, they do, but not nearly as many as it seems. A lot of times when i forget to tell them not to send my the monthly stuff it actually turns out to be something interesting, so these are just the dregs of the dregs from my personal tastes.

Sure, they're yours :)

Says who I'm going to read them? Sometimes I have a need for Stephen King bonfires. ;)

Well fine then, you can't have them =P

I might've been intrigued by the papasan if only there were any practical way of moving it across the country. But there's now, so oh well.

Realistically, they're really not that expensive, i've considered getting a new one for the new apartment rather than go to the trouble of moving the one and a half i've got 35 miles and cleaning off all the cat fur. Given that i wouldn't think that _anyone_ would want to bother with them except that i know that some people are more cheapskatey than me :)

Hey, everything in my house is covered in cat fur anyway. But yes, I was sure it would be about an order of magnitude more expensive to move it that it's worth.

i might be interested in the hide-a-bed couch, and the refrigerators depending on the size...

how big are they???
DonAithnendonaithnen on December 5th, 2005 09:01 pm (UTC)
The fridges are both, uh, fridge sized? Standard kitchen fridges with the freezer on top arrangement. If you actually wanted both of them, or even just one, i would be eternally gratefull.

They both work reasonably, (well, the one in storage worked fine the last time i plugged it in a couple years ago) but one has a slightly defective seal so you need to shove a little to get it to close, and the other may or may not have similar small issues that i've forgotten about. But they're free as long as you can move them :)
