These are the freak tweets that we didn’t post the previous Friday because we were preparing our spaceship for the Rapture.
  • Seen on local freecycle “Black metal TV stand”. For a second there I thought it was something awesome- by philipnorton

  • “Herbal remedies” offered on Freecycle … says a lot for their effectiveness- by Ffion 1108
  • I’m kinda waiting to see if I’ve secured some Freecycle wardrobes. Then I’m kinda wondering if the men in my life will collect it for me.-kate_librarian
  • Freecycle is insane! So many people after our things, giving me sob stories as to why I should pick them?! This isn’t XFactor people!!- by mostlycaroline
  • When I see women’s clothes being given away by a guy on Freecycle I wonder if he’s disposing of evidence, or has just stopped X-dressing.- by CymruBoyo

Or if you’d rather not clap, do the finger-snapping poetry thing because you know we’re cool cats.  We wrestled with posting this in our Gallery of Gives and Gets because while we did not get these beauties on Freecycle, we certainly got these for free.  Yup, at a yard sale.  I was at this particular sale for about 20 minutes or so and noticed shoppers walked by this box of hands with a look of horror on their face.

These are high-quality, highly detailed rubber hands that were salvaged from the dump.  They came from a doctor’s office, not a CostumeCity store or ExtremeHalloween. No one wanted them except lil’ ol’ me and since it was my friend Sue’s yard sale, she sent me home with this box.  I love her.

We can justify posting this if we cut you off a piece of the action, though.  On the comments section, leave the most imaginative use for these hands in the form of a Freecycle request  (no Halloween decoration suggestions…too obvious) and we’ll send you one via snail mail.  Contest ends on June 3rd so hurry and get your handy posts in!

How is it that a parrot can get an Artist-in-Residence and I can’t?  

WANTED: Paper doilies, coloured card, etc. for artistic parrot-
Bizarre one this, but our parrot Doris has been invited to attend as Artist-in-Residence at the Flatlake arts festival in Ireland in two weeks’ time. I’m looking for plain-coloured craft-type card or paper – and especially white or coloured paper doilies – anything without printing ink that she can use to create pecktures or other mixed-media artworks. Doilies are proving hardest to track down. (Seehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8Xtjj09HM0for short film,’Doris the Painting Parrot’, featuring her with actor-director Ken Campbell, her previous owner.)
