Maybe I'm an exception... I obsessively collect waaaay too many things. Monster toys from the 60s & 70s, Simpsons stuff, comics (since I was 4 or so) & comic action figures, rock posters, vintage zodiac barware, pez dispensers (gettin close to 200), vintage halloween masks & toys, vintage black light posters & schwag. And that's not even all my collections. I have an entire room in my apartment that is nothing but Wonder Woman stuff- curtains, bedding, shelves of toys, statues- you name it, I prolly got it. I'm pretty much trying to obtain any & every cool thing I remember from the time I was born to about 1984. My place is crammed floor to ceiling with books, toys, comics, magazines, dvds, videos, records & cds. Most folks think I'm totally insane- but huntin for & scorin shit I like is just my hobby. Has been for atleast 15 years. Moving sucks.
I have too many shoes- but I wouldn't call myself a collector of shoes since I don't really buy more than 1 or 2 pairs a year. I enjoy cooking, gardening & crafting- but none of it compares to the thrill of finding a plastic glow-in-the-dark Creature From the Black Lagoon toy from the 60s for less than $20. There are some of us out here that can give you men a run for your money! Maybe I got time & money for all this fun stuff cause I'm not a breeder?
BTW- never watch HGTV or reality shows (Flavor of Love being the exception). Too busy hittin rock shows & raising hell.
