FQ TOPIC: Collectable

| | Comments (1)

FQ1: Are you a collector? If so, what are some of the things you collect?
Collector isn't really the word. I'm a hoarder. The bad thing is, if I start collecting stuff, there's no stopping me. I've been collecting coins for years (mostly aus stuff tho). I started collecting the original space lego, and kept going until I got the lot. I collect dvds, lego bricks, and *crap*. I rarely throw anything out. And I seem to be collecting fish tanks. Four at last count, and I just inherited another one from a neighbour.

FQ2: If you could collect anything... no matter how rare or expensive, what would it be?
um. space? room to accommodate my silly whims and hobbies.. :) that, and a place that I could watch sunsets.

FQ3: Looking around you, what is some ordinary, everyday object you possess that would make an interesting collectable 100 years from now?
Well Lego has been around for 50 years already and is showing no signs of slowing down. My Lego collection, if I still had it, would probably be collectable.

FQ RECOMMENDED: Are there any public collections you enjoy (museums, galleries, etc.) that we should know about?
My favourite museums in Australia are the Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo, and Questacon in Canberra. The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum and Natural History Museum on DC were also pretty cool. Haven't been to too many museums.

Lego is the ultimate collectable. When I was younger, that's all I ever wanted for birthdays, holidays, and such. Of course, I wish I still had it NOW. I'd be rich! :-)
