I have a few. I guess I'm somwhat broad in my narrow interests. ;)

- Word etymology/usage
- music, particularly pre-50s. Music lyrics and trivia, not limited to any one time period.
- New York City between 1890-1960
- Cat breeds
- Post-mortem photography
- Family history, even though I've no feeling of connection to most of my family whatsoever
- Scott Joplin

Oh yeah, forgot one....veganism (not politically), nutrition, and exercise/strength training. However, this was officially deemed 'orthorexia'.... :oops:

Do you own all of the Disney films? I have quite a few of them on VHS that I found in charity shops for about 50p a throw. My favourites are Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Pinocchio and Dumbo.

not sure if this would qualify.
I seem to be able to stare at road maps of the balt/dc area for minutes on end.

Royal Histories. Tudors, Plantagenets, right now I'm reading about Queen Victoria. I love biographies and rarely, if ever, read fiction.

Right now, it's the United Nations. Catch me again in a week or two and it will be something else.

I don't own all of them. I only started collecting them recently.

I own:

Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs
Pinocchio
Fantasia
Dumbo
Cinderella
Alice In Wonderland
Peter Pan
Sleeping Beauty
One Hundred And One Dalmatians
The Jungle Book
The Fox And The Hound
The Little Mermaid
Tarzan


My family has The Lion King in their collection. I list it separately to my own collection because it is shelved in another room to the ones I've listed, and it was bought before my Disney obsession began, by my cat-lover sister. (I'm a cat-lover too, though. :))

I'm not quite happy with my Fantasia DVD, however. I bought it second-hand on Amazon, and it has a scratch and it skips while playing. It annoys me that it's taken so long for a re-release, especially as it is my favourite Disney film, and my second favourite film ever.

My favourite Disney films are:

1. Fantasia
2. Tarzan
3. The Little Mermaid
4. Dumbo
5. Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs

The only Disney I have on DVD is Bambi and this is well worth seeing on DVD. The animation combines with classical music in much the same way as Fantasia does.
