Reliquary categories. A few of them are sort of about one thing, but there aren't quite enough to start another full menu. Most are just don't really belong anywhere else, but we just can't bear to throw them out.
It's a little messy in here. I tried to stack the articles neatly along the walls at first, but then people just threw a bunch of crap in. (I mean why do we even have a giant can of hamdingers with a "Don't tell Joel" note on them. That's weird, right?) I keep meaning to get in here and organize, but something always comes up.
Please watch your step. It's starting to get a little crowded down here.
