|Things we have bought that we just had to have . . .|
but never put to good use, or, well, not the intended use
I bought a nice cell phone PDA 2 years ago.
It sits in its charger on top of the rolltop desk in my home office. It sits there all the time and never leaves. Never.
That way, in case my rolltop desk ever has an emergency, it can call me at my other office.
|I only have the stock lens. What else do you have? |
20MM, wideangle, 800-200, 18-70 & 17-35
I use all of them all for different applications. Just got the 17-35 and love it! The 80-200 is great, but you have to have a tripod. That sucker is heavy!
Oh God! Just how many of us have bought pasta machines and never used them? I'm relieved by association with famous people who've done the same. (Next, we'll here that Brett and Hawkgirl own one.)
I bought my pasta maker because a Polish friend said they were great for making pierogi dough. I couldn't find any decent cheese or sourkraut pierogi in my locale so one day I made some myself, with my daughter. It was a lot of fun and the pierogi were good but the dough was a little too thick. I was having trouble rolling it to the right thickness to hold up to stuffing and boiling.
At least with blenders you pull them out every year or two, and go on a week or month long binge of making smoothies.

Damn ... I should have thought of that as a wedding present. Mine is still in the box! ;)
Hockey Cards, a laptop that I seldom use, a portable Sony CD-Player, a Treo 180 which I bought when it was new and touched it about two times among others :)
We should ask Brett to do a "classified ads" section for all that stuff.
60ppm high end copier. Fax machine that I keep around that gets used twice a year. color laser printer, sits under a table here not even plugged in. CD stomper. PDA. IDE drive swap trays. radio tuner card for computer (EISA).
I'm having a garage sale in May, and all of my computer junk is going to the curb.

Yep. That's exactly what mine's doing right now.
But then I've never owned a blender until now, and so far I've found something to do with it at least once a week besides smoothies. Homemade hummus, garlic dip, homemade pet food, creamy soups... I draw the line at using it to mix frozen juice. ;)
