I'm strangely fascinated by the tv show, "Hoarders". If you've never heard of compulsive hoarding, go to this link. It's pretty typical of what most episodes looks like. I'm horrified by most of the episodes because of how dirty everything is. The ones with the animal hoarders are the worst. The cleanup crew will go through and occasionally find dead cat corpses among the piles of dust and dirt and various things with some value. But, on other episodes, things really aren't that dirty and I kinda empathize with the hoarder because they actually have cool stuff. It's only a problem because it's too much cool stuff.
Lately, thrift shops, dollar stores, and garage sales have made my "Wall O' Crap" explode into a mini-tribute to the show.
Pretty sure this is how it begins. *shudder*
