Do you have any possession that some would identify as either useless, pointless, or just plain weird, but it holds a special place in your mind? It doesn't necessarily have to be strange, but for sake of interest, please tell us unusual things first.

I have this bust of E.T. that I got from my grandma when I was little, about 5. I didn't understand death too well at that age, so I never actually got upset over her death. It was kind of like, "she's gone now . . where's my apple juice?" I don't know why I can't get rid of the foot tall statue, it seems to hold some sentimentality. It may be because I can't recall too much of my grandmother and that the bust is all I have that reminds me.

I also have a Sonic the Hedgehog stuffed doll sitting on my shelf. It's there because Sonic kicks ass and I loved him when I was young.

Your turn.

I've got a few random doo-dads... a pig shaped candle, a bottle from this awful drink a friend and I bought in the city, random tiny vials with different types of ash in them, mineature bottles of maple syrup.

"The Barking Puppy"- This was a mechanical puppy that my eye doctor put on the other side of the room. When a button was pressed, it would come out of its little doghouse and bark. Since it was interesting, it helped young patients focus their vision for testing purposes. When I was around 6 it broke, but every time I went back I asked if it was working. A few years later my eye doctor moved, but gave me the puppy.

I also have several dozen San Jose Sharks programs, dating back maybe more than 10 years.

Umm lets see....I got a five colored bunny rabbit I got from my whole kindergarden class while I was in the hospital diagnosed with something the doctors didn't know of for about 2 weeks, it's kinda useless but it has grown on me since then so I keep it in the closet with all of the other stuff animals I got^^;

I've also got some OLD movies that my godfather gave me that were quite useless in my eyes when I was younger becaused the movies kinda sucked >>; But now I keep them because I think their the reason why I draw so good and how I am into art now. Plus,it had a story where it really got to me about christmas with a big family of mice, forgot how it kinda went, but it was good! Was the best one on them too....

I've got this old beat up Snoopy doll that sits in my room. It's been in the family since the 1950s. Its arm has been sewn on about three times, but it's all cool.

I have signed playbills from some of my favorite musicals (Light in the Piazza, Wicked, Rent, Avenue Q, and of course The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee)

I also have two Lord of the Rings replica swords (Glamdring and Anduril)

And, being a magician I have way too many decks of cards for my own good.

That's pretty sweet, being a magician. I'm sure many of us wanted to be one at one point or another in our lives.
