    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...

    Hershey

    My lovable chocolate colored teddy bear. I love my Hershey sooo much. Sleep with him every single night since I got him many years ago. When I wake up, I always try to set him close to his other stuffed animal friends so they can all hang out comfortably. They all have names and...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
