Luthien swerves (safely) into a sliproad when she spots some men trimming down some overgrown trees by the road. her heart is racing ... faster than her truck.
Luthien : hey sir :) ... you know those logs that you have in the back of your truck ... do you have them in smaller pieces?
Man : nope ... they are what you see ... why?
Luthien : (disappointed) oh ...
Man : but i can cut these up into smaller pieces for you.
Luthien : (ecstatic) REALLY??!!
sound of chainsaw fills the air ...
Man : how thick you want them?
Luthien : erm ... YA YA ... there will do
sound of chainsaw on wood ...
Man : (shouts) how many pieces do you need?
Luthien : (shouts back) erm ... 3?
Man : (continues to chainsaw logs) why do you want them for? as chopping boards?
Luthien : (still shouting) no no ... i dunno yet, maybe for display (jewelry display :)
Man : where's your car?
Luthien : over there ... OMG ... thank you so much!!
Man : no problem :)

Husband and wife taking a stroll. wife stops dead and stares at something on the ground.
Marcus : what are you staring at?

Mellie : (says nothing)

Mellie : yup
Marcus : oh ... alright then ...
JUNK TALK 3 : rust or shine
Luthien walks into her favourite hardware shop to snoop around ... again. from the corner of her eye, she spies some rusty chains holding together some battery packs.
Luthien : my fren!! that rusty chain you have there, can i buy it off you?
Owner : huh? that's old and rusty, i can cut you some new ones
Luthien : no no ... i want that rusty one
Owner : (stares at me in disbelief) how am i going to charge you for rusty chain?
Luthien : not too much i hope
Owner shakes his head and proceeds to remove the rusty chain holding the battery packs
Owner : (handing chain to his assistant) let me just get my boy to measure this and cut some new chains for my battery packs
Luthien: ok (grins) ... thanks!!
rusty chain comes back
Owner : (puts them in a bag) there ... take it
Luthien : so how much?
Owner : free ...
Luthien : oh WOW!! thank you!!!
Owner VO : (take it and go ...)
JUNK TALK 4 : coveted hardware
Luthien was walking to the washroom in someone's office when she spotted some discarded keyboards piled at a corner. she looks around (for anyone) ...
Luthien : excuse me ... are these keyboards going to be thrown away
Guy : yup ...
Luthien : (eyes light up) ... oooo ... than can i have a couple of these?
Guy : (not sure how to respond) erm ... ok ...
Guy : (guy picks up the newest of the lot) well ... you can have this one and there is a usbdrive too but it's got virus in it
Luthien : doesn't matter ... thank you!!
Luthien still eyeing at the old one at the bottom of the pile, slightly embarassed to ask for more ... but heck! then her scavanger alter ego takes over
Luthien : oh! if you don't mind, can i have another ... that old white one at the bottom of the pile?
Guy : that's really old ...
Luthien : ya ya ya ... that's what i want ... old :)
Guy proceeds to dig up the old white one
Guy : erm ... i'll have to ask my boss about this one ... well ... i guess it's ok ... there ...
Luthien : you sure? cos if you ask me back for them later, they'll be in pieces ... (grabbing the keyboard) thank you very much!!!
Jason (the hubby) walks in ...
Jason : gosh ... even in here you can find junk to take home!?
Luthien : (:D)
