what do you obsess/get-ridiculously-excited over?
what do you collect? or what would you collect if you could?
My collections: My Little Pony petites (the inch-tall ones), tiny porcelain vases and bells, Fairy Winkles & Wee Winkles (obviously I love tiny things), anything that is close to vivid violet, and anything with dragonflies (as long as the dragonflies are fairly realistic, I don't like googly-eyed ones. Dragonfly eyes are NOT lumps on top of their head).
My obsessions: glass (seriously, I find it incredibly fascinating), vivid violet, dragonflies, Angelina Jolie, coffee, beading, reading sci-fi/fantasy (except human-centric sci-fi, I usually find it boring if they don't interact with another species), The Benjamin Gate, Massivivid (sadly little-known but WAY FUCKING AWESOME bands), acid jazz, and, well, LJ. heh. ;-)
