Getting Rid of Clothes
I have a real hard time getting rid of clothes. One I have gained enough weight in the last few years that some are probably never going to fit again so it is time to say goodbye. But also, some things I just never wear and should get rid of. ALl my drawers in both dressers, and a big plastic tote and my closet and the shelves in my closet (and a few things in the back closet) are all full. And I like to buy stuff so I need to get rid of some to make room.

Anywho, I have such emotional attachment to clothing (and knick knacks.....and shoes....and cards....and candy....and dust........ok maybe not dust but just about everything else). I remember when I wore a shirt or pair of pants and what I did in them and I just cannot part with them. It is weird, I am not sure why but with t shirts in particular the feelings are very strong. Really what happens is they only things I can end up getting rid of are things I barely ever wore because I didn't really love them inthe first place. Some tshirts did finally get downgraded from the wear them drawer to the cram them in because I can't part with them drawer.

ANywho times two, I got rid of the most clothes I have ever probably gotten rid of at one time. well technically I did not get rid of them yet, they are in a "i'm going to get rid of them pile".

I'll share the safe for work photo of the clothes. I accidentally sent Dave a NSFW photo of the clothes I was getting rid of that he ironically opened at work... darn mirrors.

I can relate to this. I'm all about recycling, reusing, etc. so when I need to get rid of clothes, it's a little tough for me. Not so much that I think I'll miss something that much; it's more that I don't like the idea of someone else, some stranger, wearing something I used to love. Clothes are very personal for some people, I suppose.

haha not as suggestive as the log but more revealing

Post the mirror pic, get a scandal going.

It can't be worse than the pic of me on the log.

I'm going to try and get back into 90's movies, I mean (e:strip). I am going to try and get back into (e:strip).

Thanks to youtube I can watch all of them from all the movies in a row:

Estrip Radio? and my old macbook
I started up my Macbook laptop from 2001 and first of all I was surprised it even started but then I found a bunch of gems. I guess I used to save AIM convos in word documents. Just a few but they were great.

One was (e:maureen)'s response after I must have sent her a message after my first gay experience and was questioning if I was gay or not.

Another was a convo between two of my friends, one chastising the other for their promiscuity.

The best one though was a convo between Chris Garcia and I about this kid I liked at COffee & who I knew I could never have. As most of you know, that kid ended up being (e:libertad) who I will be marrying this July. In the convo I was very mad becasue (e:terry) had just broadcast my secret crush on the coffee & boy on estrip radio.

Estrip radio? I don't really remember it. It sounds vaguely familiar. (E:chris) was listening to it whiel I was talking to him and Terry was broadcasting. I am not clear why I was so upset about (e:terry)'s broadcast as I am sure noone really listened to estrip radio. (e:paul) , (e:terry) do you remember estrip radio and whatever happened to it?

THere also were some fun videos I used to make such as a fake cooking show (e:jil) land I did, a bday video we made for Teres interviewing strangers and poeple we knew such as (e:flacidness), heidi, kevin, (e:libertad), comb over and random starngers around town, oh and a very young basra. Or at least I thiink it was Basra? IT could have been the other one. I really want to get back into making videos. I really enjoyed it.

All in all it was great going through tthe stuff on the computer and I couldn't get it to hook up to the internet so I am going to have to try and save things to an external drive as I am sure one day that ocmputer will stop working. It got so hot even for the little while I had it on. It also is so heavy. It looks small but is super heavy.

I want estrip radio. I think we need an estrip makeover.
joe - 01/15/16 02:28
I used to be a chronic AIM convo saver. I always thought I would have to use them against people at some point. I also hid them in zip folders with renamed extensions so I have no idea where they are in all my old files at this point.
