Odd things I have found in the attic so far

I've been exploring the attic in our new house in order to run a phone line across to the logical place -- a somewhat centrally-located closet -- to put the networking stuff, and also to put in a power outlet there. (The house has no crawlspace, so everything goes in the attic instead.)

So far, I have found the following things in the attic that I did not expect to find in the attic:
  • A plastic figure of a character from Spongebob Squarepants.
  • The rear window to an unknown (but relatively recent) car.
  • An empty package for a lubricated condom.
Also, the electrical panel for the house is very incompletely and inaccurately documented with a handful of Dymo labels in what we think might be Slovenian. The one that happens to go to the one light in the attic, along with a random assortment of other things throughout the house, is labeled "ZAHODM", which two people have independently suggested may be a typo for "Z'ha'dum".

I am beginning to be slightly concerned about this....

When we moved into our new house, we received a large ring of keys. All helpfully labelled in Korean.

Then there were the random things around the house held down by scotch tape. There's a light switch at the front of the house that's scotch taped down. We just don't touch it... :)

And also, apparently our house has no way to get into the attic space. Looked everywhere. Apparently this is not legal. When I have the powder room installed upstairs thinking I might have an access door installed, but kinda worried about what we'll find up there. House was built in the 30s so it's totally possible that there's asbestos-based insulation up there. Or even insulation.

Can't be Z'ha'dum; you went there and didn't die.

Spongebob is great, specially when he`s plastic. ☺
