I was cleaning our bombsite of a room this morning, cause we had lost our elephant and Im sure its in there somewhere, and I came across some things that I have and had totally forgotton that I owned.
It reminded me of a few of my favourite things

My most favourite thing that I own is a drumstick that the drummer from the tea party threw into the crowd and I got!! biggrin I then got it signed and its supposed to be on the wall. In my eyes that damn thing is GOLD I tells ya. (it had fallen off the wall and was on the dresser!)

A huge box of letters and cards form people when I went into the hospital to have brain surgery, I read a whole heap of them and they made me cry... Letters from arsn, and cards from my mum... *sigh*

the rooms still messy but I feel a million times more loved than I did when I started to clean...

what are your favourite possessions and why lil chickens? smile

My most prized possession would be a stuffed panda toy that I was given when I was first born.

It is a one of a kinda stuffed toy that is worth well over $500 now.

But that isn't the reason it is my most prized possession. I have slept with this bear by my side every night for almost 25 years. It is old and very loved.

Also it was given to me by my grandfather who died just a year and a half ago.

It has a special place in my heart and I think I would be totally devostated if I ever lost it or it got destroyed.

Medusa - one of my most prized pocessions is also a stuffed Panda Toy. Although i don't think it's as valuable as yours. My brother won it at a fair for me when i was 4 and i always went to sleep with it as a child. Now, he really only comes out when i'm alone and majorly upset. He gives more comfort than any person i think.

Gayle, I totally know what you panda gives me the best hugs when I am feeling down and depressed.

And the best part about sleeping with him at night is that he doesn't hog the sheets and blankets.

hehehe... a stuffed penguin for me. He's over 10 years old and he's accompanied me on many travels, mostly due to bets with my dad ("they'll never gonna let you take that on the plane as extra hand luggage!!" - "let's call them and try!!"). There have also been several attempts of friends to steal him.
Number 2 would be my guitar, it took me ages to find one like it and it's just lovely.
Number 3... hmmmm... when I went home to visit the family last year my mum gave me a necklace that belonged to me but that I had forgotten about, a necklace that belonged to her, one from my grandmother and a ring from my great-grandmother. It was one of those serious parent-child-moments and I treasure that jewellery a lot though I don't usually wear any.

My most prized possesions are my memory box and book.

It has simple things like tickets, photos, letters, ribbon, badges etc..
But each and every one has a strong memory attached to it.
for instance - the ribbon was from my sisters wedding, letters from past boyfriends, newspaper clipping of when i recieved an award, programme leaflet thing from my nannies funeral etc...

My whole life is in there.

Mine is... a stuffed dog, that was given to me by my granddad when i was 2. His name is Bob, and he looks like hell now. But i love him, and even my boyfriend doesnt argue about Bobs right to sleep near me. And theres a very small knitted mouse, that is always following me, wherever i go. Also there is a box full of old photos and letters from my friends. Some of those letters were written by the people who are gone now... So its a very important box.

My most cherished posessions are my memories. Everything else (non-sentient posessions that is) is immaterial to my journey (although I'd be pissed if our Van 'Marvin' got stolen and wrecked...but he's insured).

oh and my freedom. and my health and...I'm avoiding work again smile

Help! My personality got stuck in this signature machine and I cant get it out!

hmmm...tough one...i love my photos...and my stuffed moose...craetively called 'moose'! ubblol dad bought him for me the day i was born. he's a bit funny looking...and when you move his head up he bleeds lil foam balls...but he's done that for years now...i keep forgetting to fix him! mainly cos he's in a cupboard (too important to be stuffed in the big cardboard box with all the other toys!) at my parents house. tongue

also very very important to me is my jewellery...i have a necklace i made with a big blue crystal on it that i wear most days. i've lost it twice & it's been found! i once lost it & wasn't sure where...could have been anywhere from nanango to kingaroy to murgon (long way!) & it was found at the iga! biggrin then the other week i lost it somewhere in kingaroy & i'd just been out to do an assessment on a notification - so if it was there i was never getting it back! eek lucky it was found back at the office!
plus i have a heap of old jewellery from both of my grandmothers - in particular a ring on a chain & a bracelet i wear every day!! smile

geez i can rabbit on sometimes!! ubblol

do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good to eat!

I don't know if this sounds silly but instead of a toy I have a pink sheet with deer on it. 'Bambi's' as I used to call them apparently that I had in my cot as a baby. For some reason I can't let go of this sheet, and yeah it's in my bed. It doesn't cover me but most nights I find myself holding it as I sleep. It's all I have left of my's all I can remember.

.All things are beautiful if we take the time to look.

I guess my number one favorite thing in the world is a tiny gold ring. It has been passed down through four generations in my family, and as the first born, I got it from my dad at birth. It's just a tiny little thing, engraved with the initials "bc" (originally it meant bob collins, but now it just means boy collins). My mother keeps it at her place because until a year ago, I didn't own a fire-safe box.

I guess my second one would be my family tree file in my computer (along with the printed materials) Yeah, so my family is important to me. I have at least two branches traced back to immigration from Ireland during the civil war, and Russia during the 1920's.

What exactly do I have to light on fire to get you to notice me?

Well the most cherished thing in my life would be my friends...but I don't exactly own them...or at least, they won't admit I do ^.^'

As for something I own, probably 'the pillow'. I stole it from my favorite couch to lay down on a while ago, it was one of the pillows for the back part of it, it's like 4 feet long, 1 foot wide and 6 inches wide, and it's very comfy. I sleep on/over/contoured around it every night and it is the best for hugs when there is no peoples around smile

Some photos of my cat who died recently, a polished stone that my granddad painted an owl and a flower... thing, on. Erm, some random woodwind instrument things that I've collected from all the countries I've been to.

Can't think of anything else really.

My brain is about as useful as a chocolate teapot, but unfortunately not as tasty.

My stuffed rabbit Mr. Bunny that I've had since I was born. The basics: My health, freedom, friends, and family. My artistic talent is also one of my most cherished possesions, that, and my physical ableness. And, to get a little more manly, I cherish all the weapons I've collected/made over the years, especially my handmade scythe and katanas. Well, I'm done rambling.

If you strap a piece of buttered toast, butter side up, to a cats back, would the cat get stuck in mid air if thrown due to quantum indecision?
