Stuff I Have That My Friends Do Not...

I've seen this meme before, but hadn't applied it to my journal because I thought I'd struggle to find items that qualified. When HolyHippie posted his list, I considered it, and said to myself "What was I thinking? I live with a wooden cat named Weatherby! Of course I have things none of my Friends have!" So here's my list:

Name a CD you own that no-one else on your friends list does:
I could probably use my 4-CD set of John Denver songs (hey, I imprinted during my formative years, I can't help it), but I'm highly confident none of my Friends own Hu Song, the Eckankar love song to God.

Name a book you own that no-one else on your friends list does:
Having a couple shelves of specialized books on writing, the hard part here is picking one. I thought about using Self-Publishing, Self-Taught, as it's a $95 book and I don't think any of my Friends are that serious about self-publishing, but it's technically a long-term loan, not one I "own." I also like Mrs. Byrne's Dictionary of Unusual, Obscure, and Preposterous Words, a collection of 6,000 great words. But I think I'll go with my autographed copy of Jessica Morrell's Writing Out The Storm.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no-one else on your friends list does:

At first I thought this would be particularly difficult, as I rarely buy movies. However, I do have a copy of Killer Klowns From Outer Space, a campy Comedy/SF/Horror flick from 1988 that is both terrible and hilarious. I feel pretty safe nobody else would sink so low.

Name a place that you have visited that no-one else on your friends list has:

Lawton Altus, Oklahoma (Town Motto: Nobody Lives Here Of Their Own Free Will)

I've also made a business trip to Monroe, Louisiana, which is like Lawton Altus, without military bases but with swamps. I hope none of my Friends have ever suffered either place.
