    I'm Glad to Know I'm Not the Only One

    I Cant Help But Feel Sorry For Everything

    I am the type of person that cant shake the feeling that inanimate objects have feelings. Its everything in my life all the time. I wish it could go away, I cry because I don't want something to feel like I don't like it anymore because I'm giving it away. Its consumed me.

    Well...

    I try to treat them like they do, and on several occasions I've seen them act like they do... In any event, if anyone reading this is sexually or romantically attracted to manmade things of any kind, just send me a private message and we can have our own party :-)

    My Beloved Catherine

    Some years ago I bought this beautiful little alarm clock I named "Catherine". I talk about objects meeting the same needs as people, but let me tell you about Catherine.  Asside from her many other desirable qualities, Catherine is _LOYAL_.   If you look up...

    When I was 13 my parents got me a phone

    and I have had it ever since ( I am 16 years old now) and the first case I put on it was a cat case. And over the years I have collected about 20 phone cases that I have never used, because whenever I change the case on my phone I feel like it feels betrayed and abandoned. I can...

    Not Really, But

    Sometimes I act like it. I always did as a child, and it never fully wore off.When I was a child, I would try to feed whatever toy I happened to be playing with around mealtimes. I would also make sure my toys looked comfortable and happy in their places in my room. I would talk...

    Night Of The Living Computer.

    Having a lot of time on my hands I went into paint on my computer a couple weeks ago and began the prosess that would somehow embue my machine with a malevolent life all it's own. I gave it a face. I started with a black background, and in bright green I etched a pair of square...

    It has gotten better over the years

    but when I was little I was miserable. I remember my mom picking up a ketchup bottle at Walmart once and then putting in down. I cried because I thoughr it might feel rejected. I thought it got excited when she picked it up that we were going to buy it and then for her to put...

    I don't even know why I think they do.

    .. I have ended up with so many stuffed toys and other things (like figurines) and can't throw them away because that would hurt them and that they depend on me. I ended up with a cold in winter because I believed all my stuffed toys were cold so I gave up my blankets for them...

    Our Elevator's Name Is Otis

    I find that when I greet Otis on a regular basis and ask how he's doing that he doesn't break down for me as he does with other people in our building. I tend to thank inanimate objects also, which I think is appropriate and I am sure is appreciated by them.  (insider eye...

    Hoarding Stops My Guilty Feelings.

    I have a strange thing about... every inanimate object. I they all just have feelings, and I hate that I have that mindset. I feel terrible when I throw things away and if I think an object is "important," I sometimes whisper sorry to them as I have to throw them away. Writing...
