Take a Penny, Leave a Penny!

Close to three years ago, karnythia hosted an LJ post where she asked people to leave a comment if they had something they wanted or needed, or if they had something they were willing to give or offer.

I got two things: yarn and friends.

This is how I met rosefox, who has since become one of the people in my life whom I value most.

So I've been thinking a lot lately about that and what a big impact it had on my life over the past three years. And it made me want to do it for other people.

Quoting karnythia's post from all those years ago:

What do you want?
What do you need?
What do you have?

Feel free to answer any or all of them. They do not need to be realistic things (I put world peace on mine last time) If you don't have a LiveJournal, or would prefer to answer anonymously, give us a way to contact you.

Feel free to share this on LJ, DW, and other social media if you like.

--> more friends!! Friends hold me together and I've had far too many of them drift away with time. I am one of those television show friends who can chat a little bit every day. Just how I'm wired. I resent that modern society and urban living has made most of us unneighborly. Imagine if you had a friend who you met for breakfast every morning before work. I COULD BE THAT FRIEND!! Anyway, that's what I want :)


--> my health is returning slowly but surely. But I do need to clean out my apartment for my mental health and create the time to work more consistently on my art.


--> anybody in or around or willing to come to North Brooklyn, I have a bunch of comic books and graphic novels which are literally yours for the taking.

Where in brooklyn? (Okay, this is sad, I've lived in brooklyn for 15 years and have no concept of the geography unless you tell me neighborhood/train line.)

Greenpoint! At the G train Greenpoint Avenue stop :)

I could be tempted. I'm a geek from way back, but never could bring myself to buy comics because it takes me literally 6 minutes to read one start to finish. (I read fast!) What kind do you have?

The periodical kind are mostly superheroes but I definitely have dozens (hundreds?) of minicomics. Lots and lots of collections and graphic novels. I'm working on a list.

Sounds pretty great. I can only carry so much and I don't know much of the comics world - so I'd love to see the list and ask a friend for their opinion, but that sounds like a great afternoon or three to me!

Darn, if I lived in NYC...

If you can afford it, I've found hiring a housekeeper to be a fantastic thing. It's nice to not to have to worry about cleaning when staying awake is a chore and it means you can put your energy towards everything else that needs done.

You seem neat! I'd be your friend if you'd have me.
