A SATA cable in my old computer seems to have failed, but I haven't yet checked the cable properly. I just replaced it quickly and forgot about it.

Yes, if the one in my computer counts.

Yep. Several books owned by my dad on the nearby bookcase.

I guess I could paint one of my fingernails if I found nail polish in time.

A container containing something other than what it says on the label?

A cardboard box whose label indicates that it carried tomatoes. It now contains a model wooden ship that my sister is building. (Very slowly. She was 12 when she started building it; she's 26 now and it is still unfinished...)
The box also contains: a case of old computer DVDs that probably haven't been used for at least fifteen years, a postcard from Provincetown, Massachusetts, a plaster cast of a hand wiht half a finger missing, a really old broken toy eagle, a hammer, a very pretty little tablemat from Madrid, a blank notebook, and loads of other stuff. But no tomatoes.

Thank heavens no.
That box looks interesting though. I imagine future archaeologists digging this up and getting into arguments about the possible purpose of the items.

Actually, yes! In the voter registration tabling kit I used last week, there is a rock hand-painted with the League of Women Voters logo. (It's intended to keep LWV pamphlets and flyers from blowing away, when tabling outdoors.)

A stack of both on the shelf next to me, from dinner. (And dessert -- a possibly ill-advised attempt at making chocolate scones.)

Scones, or (American or British) biscuits?

Do you want ketchup, relish, mayonnaise, yellow mustard, spicy brown mustard, or honey mustard? I had more than enough time to grab all of them.

Depends what you mean by "not touching". The light bulb above my head is not touching the ground, but it's touching something that's touching something.... that's touching the ground.

And air is a thing. So... uh... yeah?

The (actual, not recorded) sound of squealing tires?
