Nude Girl Painting $450

Found the list in my apartment’s parking lot. I’m not sure exactly what this is. An inventory of stolen/missing items, I guess? I really like the mix of personal, artwork, and random items included. And that while the sewing machine is underlined twice, the methadone is not.

$120,000 Crush

I found this on the floor of a building at Stanford University while I was there for a debate tournament in February. I have no idea of any possible back-story, but it was addressed to ‘Michelle’. I’m actually a little worried that Michelle never got the note and someone just spent $120,000 in vain. Best … Continued

No Matter What You Say

Money Where Your Mouth Is

I received this dollar bill a while ago as change. I didn’t want to spend it, even when I needed an extra dollar–I’d always borrow instead. Something tells me that this was a bet. “I’ve got a dollar that says I can make this putt.” I wonder if those golfers have upped their antes since … Continued

Brainstorm

I found this on the floor at a party.
