Season’s Greetings

Some friends bought a house here in California last summer. We found this in the garage taped to a toilet seat!– among things left behind by the previous tenants. Enjoy

Drugstore Zombie

I work in a used bookstore. I found this in a copy of “The Birth of Tragedy and The Genealogy of Morals” by Friedrich Nietzsche.

Least Appropriate Use of Comic Sans

I found this in a IU student lounge and I couldn’t believe they would use Comic Sans for something so serious. I also wondered what the “specific tasks” are that you can do to earn extra cash. And yes, people had taken a few of the tags at the bottom.

Find Another House

Found in the gutter on Ramsay Street. I am most struck by the comment about the stove. It seems to say, “Look, I’m not really thrilled about the dope-shooting in my house, but I could live with it if you were just a little more conscientious about turning off the stove when you were done.” … Continued

Spotted two summers ago on the curb outside my apartment near campus. I first thought that it described the symptoms of someone suffering from a strange neurological disease but, then again, it might have been inspired by a drug-induced trip.

New Plan

I found this on the ground in Park City. I think it’s left over from the Sundance Film Festival. I hope Reid felt better and did the green ones. Party like it’s 1974!

Canned Clams + Meth

I used to work at a coffee shop frequented by an inordinate amount of methamphetamine-addicts.

These guys even made a little sign reading “Free Try Me Fresh” … Continued

Drug Attic

Found on the window of the CTA El train.

Crystal Clear

I found this note on the ground while walking my friend’s dog. No good story from me on this, but I’m sure the person who wrote the note has plenty. (info/resources:
