Dumpster Diving


Denver found some speakers beside the dumpsters at school yesterday and brought them home. They actually worked! We have wanted to buy some speakers to hook up to the notebook (which is our sound system, TV and everything) for a long time, but didn't want to spend the money.
Anyways we won't have to watch movies with the computer on our lap anymore, we can rock out to some Bob Dylan and feel sexy looking at our new free speakers. As you can see below these nifty noodle speakers are super cool and look like they might of been even cooler in the late 90s.
My husband is a good one for doing a little dumpster diving. The lamp in the background came from one of his other jaunts into garbage land. He has also recently brought home other special finds such as a: broken tripod, a broken Niterider headlamp, two chairs that work, another functioning lamp, numerous pens and pencils and a Christmas tree stand and Christmas lights that didn't work (Jocelyn helped him with the last two fabulous finds). My contribution in the dumpster diving was a futon-like-couch-thing that we quickly decided was too wet and stinky to ever recover, so the cough thing was returned to its home in the trash. We still don't have a couch but we do have two very nice camp chairs.


  1. Yeah free stuff!
    The other night there was a great bookshelf on the street with a "Free" sign on it... Adam went jogging up the street to get it and came running back, down the dark street, 11pm or so, with a bookshelf over his head, looking for all the world like a really dumb thief who left the plasma screen and made off with the shelf.
