Cats-always has been my number one interest

I have always been interested in learning about other cultures as well. At 12 years of age, Greece and Japan fascinated me.

Mainly electronics and aviation. I didn't move to computers until I was about 17. Then again, they were VERY expensive prior to that. By todays standards the average personal computer was VERY primitive!

Mineral collecting and astronomy - they were mutually exclusive, I would spend a few months on minerals and a few months on astronomy. I'm still into minerals, thus my nick name that was given to me by my classmates in Uni. Here is one of my minerals on Flickr - is is Dioptase from Kazakhstan.

I love Dioptase. They have some locally, but too expensive. I do want some though as I think it is beautiful.

Reading "Readers Digest", baseball, basketball, native american artifacts, coin collecting, rock collecting, Time Magazine, The Adams Family, Doctor Dolittle books, BB guns. I'm sure that there were a lot more, but that's all I recall.

If you look around online you're bound to find some quite cheap Dioptase, especially mineral dealers in Europe. I got my Dioptase for only $25 here in Ireland and it would sell for $100 to $200 in the US.

Cats, until I was ridiculed for it enough by my family (why eludes me) that I did everything possible to avoid anything cat-related.

Then medical books, from about the time I was 8. I read them for fun. I still do. We all have a body, might as well know how it all works.

i've collected many Atomic particles :D

if i had any collecting obsessions, i went thro' them fairly quickly too.

my mum said i collected carrier bags, but i'm sure i didn't, it's just easier to squeaze them all into one box than rather than taking a stupid cheap piece of plastic half way across the house to throw it away! i could squeaze a hundred carrier bags into any box, i'm sure! i've seen many more OCD people collecting many more carrier bags than i ever did, or do they call that recycling these days!

everyone has collections of some sort, and could easily be said to be obsessive...

Compact Discs/Records, clothing, shoes, handbags, makeup, ex-boyfriends, STIs(STDs/VD)

:)

Oh, yes, had almost forgotten I did that for 1-2 years, as a side activity.
