What do you collect?

I used to collect rocks. Not plain old rocks... rocks with crystals, rocks with fossils, rocks with many different layers. I still have them in a cookie tin somewhere.

Then I collected keychains. I only had maybe 50, but it seemed like a lot at the time. Then I realized they get expensive after a while

I have sort of inherited a doll collection. Two of my aunts give me dolls for my birthdays or Christmas sometimes. But I wouldn't say I actively collect them.

Same with foreign trinkets - several family members of mine have been overseas numerous times and have given me items from India, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Germany, Russia... My favorites are the nesting dolls. One of them is about 8 inches tall and has about 20 dolls inside; the smallest is 3mm tall. And it's all made from one piece of wood; may be an antique by now.

keyrings, badges, pens, garfield stuff, money from other countries/olden days, and pretty much anything that won't go moldy and/or stink out my room. I have a small bag of lead somewhere too I was collecting lead for awhile.

Mainly all I collect these days is hours sitting in the dark dank damp corner of my room.

I used to collect viruses (had over 100 megs of em) but then my neice started using my computer and I got afraid that she would stumble across my virus folder and accidentally run one... (I didn't have a virus scanner at the time)

Right now I collect stuffed animals from the claw machine at safeway. I know that its kinda weird for a 20 year old guy to collect stuffed animals but I don't care.

I also still collect pokemon cards (/me ignores the snickers from the back row.) I have over 1000 cards with 100+ holos.

Football cards which I threw out after my cat opened the shoe box and pissed all over them

I came for the hatred.
I stayed for the ballbag.

I am so important I feel the need to let it be known like a liberal discovering the internets for the first time. Uh hur hur hur. I also wash myself with a rag on a stick.
