Tea cups - I collect tea cups and saucers, but I rarely drink out of any of them.  They just don't hold enough tea, or keep it hot long enough!  They do look very pretty in the china cabinet.

Handkerchiefs - I also collect antique handkerchiefs, but I do use them.  I buy pretty embroidered ones at antique stores to use and to give as gifts.  I bought five this past Saturday.  It's rather a sickness.

Fabric - I LOVE fabric.  I sew, am a costumer, and have quilted, but that isn't the reason.  I just love the way the patterns look and how it feels and the dream that one day maybe I'll do something with it all.  I have vague ideas.  One was to make pretty patchwork book bags or satchels.  Anyone want one of those?  My fabric lust comes directly from my mother.  I totally blame her.  :)

Icon 1:  The Richard Dreyfuss one?  It's a line from a Tom Stoppard play called Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.  It chronicles the misadventures of the characters with the least number of lines in Shakespeare's Hamlet.  And it's pretty stinking funny.

Icon 2:  'Valley Girl Voldemort' one?  One of my students left it as a comment on my myspace and it made me laugh, so I snagged it to use over here.

Icon 3:  "Should I call a cab?"  Combines two of my loves; The Wizard of OZ and Scrubs.  Dr. Cox (All kinds of love) says it one of the first times we meet Jordan.

Ooh satchels. My mom does stuff like that. She also has a fabric-related lusting disease. It goes like this:

So, one time I was in Puebla, Mexico with her, and we had just got back from Cholula (site of the largest pyramid in the western hemisphere), where I climbed to the top the hill, because that's where a cool church is. Then we climbed the fake Teotihuacan-style pyramid they stuck on the side (don't get me started about Classic period architecture in a clearly post-Classic site *shakes fist at Mexican government*). So anyway, I was really exhausted from the climbing up things in a high-altitude environment because of my asthma. Then we had to walk like a mile or so from the bus depot to our hotel. We picked a random street to walk down since they were all parallel, and I realized we'd made the wrong choice when I saw a big sign on a huge store that said, "La tienda de tela más grande de todo México". There was another only slightly smaller store across the street.

Translation: The largest fabric store in all of Mexico. ¡Hombre!

I bet you were in there for hours! I remember the feeling of dread as a child when we pulled up in front of Hancock Fabrick...knowing that there was no escape!

Did you want to play?

Okay...

Explain: stargate, smf and movies

And I'll have to use keywords, cause I'm hopeless like that; please explain Redwings, Sylar and Wake up.
