Welcome to Monday. I am writing this before the Seattle Seahawks vs. Atlanta Falcons game because I will either be very sad, or absolutely freakin' amazed that my Hawks pulled one out against the team that I picked at the beginning of the year to win it all.
So, lately, I have returned to a little hobby of mine that I used to have long ago. Collecting. I still have an epic sports card collection, though some of it has been lost over time. (And don't even get me started on the horror story of what my mother threw out from my youth.) I have lava lamps and all sorts of things.
Lately, I have been on a crusade to replace my KISS collection. I am pretty simple in the world of gifts. Denise knows that if it has to do with zombies or KISS...it is a slam dunk. Why complicate things? However...lately I have begun my search for something else to line my shelves with...
Yep...my love for all thing British has spilled over to my "Action Figures". DR. WHO!!!
I am pretty sure there is an ocean of figures when it comes to the good Doctor. I have some Dr. Who stuff...my TARDIS coffee mug and bathrobe for example. But until Jenifer's boyfriend got me the groovy little bobble TARDIS for Christmas, I didn't really have anything in the "figures" department.
Don't get me wrong...I am still filling far too much space with my KISS stuff...shot glasses, pint glasses, Pez dispensers, Mr. Potato Heads and bobbles...but I am led to believe that their is a galaxy of Dr. Who stuff floating around in the universe. I need to sell more books...and get a bigger house.
What does all of this have to do with anything? Nada. But it's Monday. Why start the week off so serious? I bet some of you out there have some fairly groovy hobbies. I would even be willing to wager that some of you collect stuff. Isn't it funny how something catches our eye and we become fixated? So, what is your guilty pleasure? Or what do you collect that makes your spouse just shake their head and look at you with that expression that says, "I don't get it...but if it makes you happy then whatever."?
