items #53-#83 it's CATCH UP time...

oh-so-behind in my thing-a-day resolution...

i have been out and about, two trips across country to help my Boss move house. (& what a fine home he has moved into, see his fireplace photo here ...)

Came home to this in the mailbox, a gift of gratitude that touched my heart: a signed 1975 Barry Smith print, The Enchantment. Thank you, dear author boss, so much~

Also was at SXSW with the almighty Soundgarden, doing a few shows. Incredible shows, I should say. They did the entire Superunknown album front to back on a rooftop overlooking Austin!

Back home now and looking at the various items ready to leave the treehouse. So many things!


7 x American Gods stickers, art by Jouni Koponen:

4 x sushi coasters (1 set to good home)

2 x Hello Kitty/KISS mash-up kleenex packs!

1 x meow button, just exactly what you think it is:

1 Kitty-made glass candy bar "how long have I been in this darkness?" magnet. I believe it was from a Batman comic, but it could be anyone who is just about over the looooong green glitter!

1 x directors slate:

to claim, follow these simple steps:

post in the comments, what you want, and what nice thing you will do for someone else in your turn.

don't overthink, just be the first to comment. Share and play nice.

The American Gods stickers, Neil-five-dollar bills and KiSS/helloKitty tissue can go to overseas buddies, but everything else IN CONTINENTAL USA...shipping is too much $$$ for moi. (ok, if you really want something, we can work something out)

Super SIMPLE!!

  1. Hi Cat, welcome back. You were greatly missed! I would take any piece you felt like giving, just because it came from you. :) As for my nice for someone else, I have used your swallowing diamonds inspiration and have been going thru old things/pieces/knick knacks and paying them forward to other like minded individuals. So far I have given the extra postcards you sent me, stacks of comics (and a few books too), some toys, and I'm still going. I even came across a piece or 2 that I want to use towards swallowing diamonds (if that's possible). Thanks for all that you do and for being so awesome!

  2. I love the Kitty magnet (among other offerings). Some days, it feels like I've been in this darkness all my life.

    When I find someone else in the darkness, I know I can't lead them out of it. But I can sit with them for a while, so they know they aren't completely alone.

    A certain "Dream Dangerously" brass medallion is currently protecting my keys, so I'm disqualified from any further diamonds. Maybe the mirror can reflect a little light into someone else's darkness.

  3. terrific!
    no limit on how many diamonds you can claim--
    it's either you or the thrift shop---
    sending MattnColey & MKH some love.

  4. I would love to have the meow button to give to my boyfriend so he doesn't get lonely in our no-pets-allowed apartment while I'm gone for the summer.

  5. I'm so glad you're back!!!!!! I've missed you!

    I would LOVE a Cthulhu mint tin! I'm dancing in my chair over them.

    As for what I will do in my turn... I love giving out bookmarks. I carry around my bookmarks and give them to people in libraries and bookshops and thrift store book sections. I carry around the business cards of my local indie bookstore and give them out as well. Yay reading!

    Also, I had a recent diamonds moment of my own while at a concert. I'd had a VIP ticket and was able to get a bag and poster signed by the group, but in the crowd I had the luck of ending up to this family with two young boys who hadn't been able to get anything signed, so I gave them my poster. I loved seeing their faces and being able to pass that item on. =)

  6. oh man....a sticker (for my car)...hello kitty (for my wife, the kitten)...sushi coasters (all me. or maybe i keep one, and give one to the wife, and one to the daughter, and one to....somebody lucky. i dont know). or you know, $5 off, because who doesnt like coupons for awesome stuff?

    what i get, i will share, be it just turning someone onto neil because they were curious about my sticker, or i will pass things on because no matter how much i might want something, im bad about keeping them for myself....

    id answer this better, but im a sleepy, sleepy mink....

  7. I would love the neil coupons very much and I would turn them into bookmarks to give to special friends

  8. I would love the neil coupons very much and I would turn them into bookmarks to give to special friends

  10. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him here as (518) 303-6207 or He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something

  11. I am so glad to be on this site today in other to express myself to the world because i made a promise to Dr.abuya that if he grants me my heart desire that i am going to make sure that the world knows about his powers..
