    I enjoy artifacts which have a history.

    I have a wide collection of older books of all different genres. When I reach for one, I wonder how many hands have touched their precious pages and what feelings the words evoked within.

    I collect vintage soft core **** photos -

    so beautiful, so classy, so weird to think that most of the beautiful women are now grannies or deceased - What a strange and beautiful place we live in! If I EVER get glamour photos done I'm getting them done like that, like they used to with so much class!

    but I like old things too; old LP Records, old cameras, antiques. People say I'm a hoarder, are The National Trust hoarders? i don't think so. I say I'm a collector.

    and manga!! I know that people find dolls creepy and manga childish. I couldn't care!!!! They make me happy and I really like looking at them! They help me forget about the real world for a little bit.
