I temporarily collect, don't keep: arthropods and small reptiles or amphibians. I always have jars or pill bottles in my car and purse. But I haven't done it as much this past year. But that will change, as we are in a new state with new habitats with new and interesting creatures. If I can't identify something I have to find out what it is.

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

I buy a postcard whenever I'm in a new city. My family & friends started bringing me back one whenever they traveled somewhere too, so I have a pretty good collection now. I'll probably put them in an album or something someday but for now they're just in a stack in my dresser.

I also collect sea glass, I have a small vase full of it.  I love sitting at the beach and finding a piece hiding there. :)


Edit: I tried to post the sea glass pic but it won't show. It's hiding in my Flickr album (in my sig) if anyone really wants to hunt for it. ;)

LOL, so you let them go again? You don't have a collection of dead creatures in pill bottles? ;)

lol I wish. They're rare around here. I think I read once the blue glass came from medicine/poison bottles back in the day among a few other things. I do have about 10 now, but they are teeny tiny peices. :)

I collect music CDs, and travel souvenier glasses, coffee cups, magnets, postcards and seashells.    Not really a big collection though.

I collect vintage Star Wars. If you recognised my avatar you might have guessed that, if you didn't recognise my avatar it probably wouldn't interest you...   :)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

I used to collect vinyl. But only Trance and other electronic music. I have some nice limited coloured vinyl. Some of them limited to 250 copies.

Stopped collecting though when Vinyl died in the clubbing scene. (well there is a few purists out there still)

I can't bring myself to sell them. lol

Wow some nice stuff there.

I have the worlds largest sea shell collection. I keep it scattered around all the beaches all over the world. Maybe you've seen it.

...never let a little thing like a fact get in the way of a good theory!

...arguably the worlds smartest mule!

Only because it pails in comparison to my sand collection ;)
