Back over Christmas when I was on vacation in Hawaii, my dad and I discovered this strange Japanese documentary show called Soko Ga Shiritai. One night, they had an episode on hoarders! These people rationalized every purchase they made, usually something along the lines of “but I NEED these 50 rolls of toilet paper!” I thought it would be fun to work this into a Chapel strip, because everyone has one thing that they almost hoard, right? For me it’s art supplies! I have way too many of them!

What about you guys? What things do you collect above anything else, to the point of almost hoarding? Let’s chat below!

Books. How does anyone NOT hoard books?
Purple Library Guy 7/30/14
 
I hoard old schoolwork. I'm not kidding.
Peanutsfreak 6/1/14
Haha!
 Emma  6/3/14
 
I am SO GLAD I'm not the only obsessive hoarder around! ^^
DarkwingLady 11/3/13
Ha ha! Chapel is in good company.
 Emma  11/7/13
 
BOOKS. BOOKS. BOOKS. We are one bibliophilic family.
Sahir. 9/29/13
Same here for books, but just me. :D

Me, mum and bro are just plain clotheshorses. Seriously! Shirts, skirts, suits, gowns, sandals and shoes and slippers! >///<
DarkwingLady 11/3/13
Oh, that's fantastic! Chapel would love it.
 Emma  11/7/13
I was raised in a book-loving family, and I'm very grateful for it.
 Emma  11/7/13
 
Well, I don't have as many hats as Bartholomew Cubbins, but I'm long past 100 and they are EVERYWHERE. I have costumes from all different periods, plus the accessories (including the HATS), a big batch of sewing equipment, and even with all the treasures lost to flood, mice, and moths, hundreds of yards of fabric, feathers, leather, lace, and trims.
IvyKllr 8/6/13
Wow, it sounds like you and Chapel would be BFFs!
 Emma  9/20/13
 
I'm pretty sure I have over 1,000 books. And when I'm going through them to give some away I'm like, "But someday my children will read this!" So yeah, I am definitely a hoarder.
RowAn 6/16/13
I give away old books so that they'll find a better home, but I can understand.
 Emma  7/27/13
That sounds SOO TEMPTING.... I would SO love to hang out at your place and read read read all your books! >///<
DarkwingLady 11/3/13
 
Webcomics you should see my tablet on update days my entire tablet adressbar is absolutely over flowing with webcomics but I really more of a packrat in which i horde everything so I'm worse than one of thosehoders one tv I'm only 14 !
rowanrhed 3/24/13
Ha ha! I'm sure Chapel can commiserate!
 Emma  4/3/13
 
That is EXACTLY how I am with my stuffed animals!!!!
Izzy 2/20/13
I know, right?
 Emma  3/8/13
 
I have an unhealthy font obsession. And I have two full sized bookshelves in my room, plus there are 8 that aren't in my room...
Silver 12/15/12
You are so like me!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
books!!!!I LOVE BOOKS!!!!
ashlee 11/12/12
That's a good thing to be obsessed about!
 Emma  11/12/12
 
Role playing games and props to use during tabletop gaming sessions. But it's under control. Really.
Max_Writer 10/21/12
Ha ha! Control the obsession...
 Emma  11/12/12
 
Dr. Who stuff and books... i must have as much Dr. Who stuff as i can find in the States and as many books as i can fit on my shelves (and anywhere i can stuff them tee hee) of course my kindle is overflowing too!!!
Melissa 9/15/12
Ha ha! Of course! Books and Dr Who things are the best!
 Emma  11/12/12
 
Games. I. Must. Own. ALL OF THEM!!! (here come's all the Own ALL the games jokes...)
Haisen 8/9/12
Ha ha! Games are the best, for sure!
 Emma  11/12/12
 
What do you think, flapper or slapper?
Flapper, you look lovely.

You've got a hat box?
Planet of the Hats, I'm ready!
CJ 7/13/12
Ha! Yes.
Clockwork Wombat 10/15/12
Oooh! Donna's first episode way back when! Makes me too nostalgic...
 Emma  11/12/12
 
Star Trek poster with Spock, yes! :)
nerdyguy 5/16/12
Thank you, I'm glad to see a fellow Trekkie here!
 Emma  11/12/12
 
i totally hoard stone soup mags and notebooks.
Blue 4/21/12
I LOVE Stone Soup. Maybe instead of commenting on here I should be editing that story I want to submit to it... hmmmmmm.

I hoard rocks.

Me: Rock! PREETTYYY.

Also, Chapel, I just wanted to invite you to a 1920's period party... hope you can make it!
Jam 7/6/12
Ha ha, I'm sure she'll be delighted! You should definitely submit there, too!
 Emma  11/12/12
Ooh, I love Stone Soup! I have a big stack of them in my room...
 Emma  11/12/12
 
Apparantly, my family has the first book of Cardcaptor Sakura! I was pretty surprised.. I read some of it and I have to say that those cards actually look really nice.
Miss L.S.P 4/19/12
Oh wow, really? That's so cool! You should definitely keep up with the series!
 Emma  4/19/12
yeah, maybe I will
Miss L.S.P 4/19/12
 
So any reason there is a Star Trek poster above Chapel's bed?
coco 4/19/12
Well...because she likes Star Trek!
 Emma  4/19/12
Star trek is ok, but i prefure star wars myself.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/19/12
I like star wars... but i actually have never seen star trek.
coco 5/3/12
I like Twilight Zone, the series. Haven't seen the movie yet, but I have a book that explains all the episodes.

P.S. If you want to see the show, it is on at 10 on Me-TV [channel]
Jam 7/6/12
10 at night. Sorry for being so general. :)
Jam 7/6/12
I assumed that. but do you?
coco 4/20/12
 
How many hats does she have, anyways? I wonder if I can compete with her, I have 40 or so.

By the way, I love your comics. I don't even remember how I stumbled upon Chapel, but I adore her quirky personality. You are very good at keeping her personality the same, is she based off anyone?

Please never stop :)
Layna 4/17/12
Wow. what a number of hats.
Miss L.S.P 4/18/12
I know, right? What a cool collection it must be!
 Emma  4/18/12
I get most of them from the Farmer's Market in my town, and from vintage and second-hand stores. It's more fun that way, then they are unique!
I have a sailor hat, mushroom hats, hats from the 30's, big floppy hats, one knitted hat, a duct tape hat,one with a feather sticking out, a top hat-ish thing (I call it my Mad Hatter Hat!) and quite a few more. I also have some from the Farmer's Market that are made from old clothes, so they're quite funky :)
Layna 4/18/12
Wow, 40 is quite a lot! The number of hats Chapel has isn't strictly defined, I imagine she's always buying new ones. She has however many hats you imagine her to have!

Awww, I'm so glad you like Chapel's character so much! She's not based on anybody, no. Sometimes things she does will be slightly based on things I've seen people do in real life, but her character is entirely invented.
 Emma  4/18/12
That must be hard to maintain, then. I applaud you entirely, I know that I personally struggle with maintaining a character of complete invention!

Yes, I have quite a bit. I love love love hats! It's one of my addictions, but then we have five or six wardrobes filled with costumes at my house, too. :)
Layna 4/18/12
Wow, five or six wardrobes? Are you in the theater at all? That's so fascinating! I'd love to hear more about your collection!
 Emma  4/19/12
I do theater, yes, but that's not what the costumes are for. My mom owns a party business and she throws themed parties- birthday, retirement, anything! I work for her as a Character Worker, so I dress up and interact with the guests in character.

Basically it's like one giant interactive play and we have seven foot canvas backdrops to complete the scene!

My favorite costume is my fairy costume, but mad science is a close second! We also have Elizabethan (that was made for and English project in school), Renaissance, Knight, Pirate, Mermaid, Spa Assistant, Nurse, Scientist, Bunny, Fairy, Doll, Cinderella (raggy dress with ball gown under)and all the princesses, Bollywood, Elf, Witch/Wizard, and more. We offer most of these as themes, plus ones where costumes aren't needed :)
Layna 4/21/12
Wow, how amazing!
 Emma  11/12/12
 
Emma, I read a lot of webcomics every week and I am happy to find what that is well written, amazingly drawn, really funny and safe to show my younger cousins and parents. I hope you keep this going for a good long while!
Xander 4/15/12
Thank you so much, what a sweet comment! I'm really glad to hear that you enjoy Chapel that much, and I'm flattered you showed it to your cousins. I'll definitely keep it going for a long time, and I hope you keep reading!
 Emma  4/16/12
 
I collect Maneki Neko (those waving Japanese cats) and really anything cute and/or tiny and/or Japanese. ^^
Ava 4/14/12
Oh, I love those waving Japanese cats, they're adorable! What other cute Japanese things do you collect? For a while, a lot of people at my school collected those Japanese erasers that are in the shape of different things...
 Emma  4/16/12
Oh! I totally know those! They are SO adorable!
Miss L.S.P 4/17/12
Japanese erasers are fun. :)
recently my grandpa brought back this big box of weird treats from an airport in Japan. I obsess over the packaging of EVERYTHING and refuse to throw out the wrappers because they're so pretty.
Ava 4/17/12
oh, just remembered something else!
I just started a collection of other people's things I find in library books. Anyone else do that?
I'm always super excited when i find something...so far what I have is this really cool b&w photo and a bookmark someone made by laminating some really cool old stamps (from Russia, I think.)
Ava 4/17/12
I don't collect things I find in library books, really -- mostly because I have a weird compulsion to always own my books instead of getting them from the library -- but I do collect random papers I find on the street! Anything that people have written and left behind, I'll take. Those sound like amazing finds though! I also collect antique welder's glasses, bottlecaps, bad amateur art, records, and One Piece collectibles.
 Emma  4/18/12
Oh my gryffindor ME TOO! Well, the owning books part - i HATE library books for some reason. I always likew to leave my own marks on books - to see how worn the've become through reading them so often, to remember fond times reading them...my Order of the Phoewnix is SO messed up, because in seventh grade last year I shoved that huge paperback into my backpack every day for, like, a week lol ;)
But i used to collect quarters! Now, I guess you could say I collect posters of my interests...my hangout room has, like twenty billion Harry Potter and Hunger Games posters in it ;)
And my room's got One Direction. lol i've caught the Direction Infection <33333
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 4/18/12
lol Order of the Phoewnix wthufflepuff, self???
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 4/18/12
Oh, I LOVE Japanese packaging! Whenever I order my manga or Japanese collectibles, everything's so beautifully wrapped, I just have to save the packaging too.
 Emma  4/18/12
I know, aren't they? My favorites are the ones shaped like miniature food!
 Emma  4/17/12
I love the panda and frog ones!
Miss L.S.P 4/18/12
Those are really cute, too. They used to be really popular among my friends, but none of my friends really use them too much anymore (I don't either, to be honest, but I still love them).
 Emma  4/18/12
I don't actually use them as erasers... :P
Miss L.S.P 4/18/12
I think they're too cute!
Miss L.S.P 4/20/12
I use those Japanese erasers to get in tiny spots when I draw my comic, Modge Podge. Isn't the paintbrush you used for those illustrations in stone soup created by Japanese and/or made in Japan? I have that brush to. I love it!
coco 4/18/12
I don't really use those erasers in my drawings, but it's SO cool that you do! Yes, my favorite type of watercolor paintbrush (for others who may not know what we're talking about) is a Japanese type that has a plastic well for holding water incorporated into the very barrel of the brush. Isn't it so great?
 Emma  4/18/12
Yes yes yes! It is sooo nice not to have to bring a cup of water to where you are painting!
coco 4/19/12
 
It's ok Chapel, we love you still :)
and oh my gosh! The new Chapel intro is so awesome. "Vacuums have bags of dirt inside them! I found an awesome hat and changed the sign to dogs ON biciycles! Bye!"
Ahahahahhaha.
Ava 4/14/12
Oh man, I'm REALLY glad you like the new intro! I worked really hard on it and I'm really pleased that people have enjoyed it so far. I thought it was a pretty funny way of getting to know Chapel!
 Emma  4/16/12
 
I don't really hoard anything, but I collect paint chips (paint samples), and business cards!
Blarber123 4/14/12
Paint chips? What an interesting thing to collect! Do you pick up free paint chips from Home Depot or something like that? And I know some people who collect business cards, so that's really cool that you do, too!
 Emma  4/16/12
I don't understand the paint chips unless you want them as a color sample. But i do understand the business cards. the cards are slowly becoming a lost art. it's a shame.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/17/12
Have you ever been to the Maker Faire? It's really awesome and people make THE coolest things... you can also find a lot of different business cards....
Miss L.S.P 4/18/12
I love the Maker Faire so much! Wait, Miss LSP, does that mean you live in the Bay Area?
 Emma  4/18/12
Yes :)
Miss L.S.P 4/18/12
you two should meet up some time. although a part of shudders at the possiable zany chaos the two of you could make. :-P
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/18/12
haha! I have to admit, that might be true! I CAN be VERY CRAZY! :P
Miss L.S.P 4/19/12
I love business cards! I always have tons of fun designing Chapel business cards to take with me when I exhibit at conventions.
 Emma  4/18/12
 
I collect cook books, well books in general. But by far the majority are cook books. I did gradate culinary school. It doesn't make up for it but it's a good excuse.
Baby Chef 4/14/12
Oh wow, you graduated culinary school? That's definitely a reason to collect cookbooks! I collect normal books, too, but I'm not much of a chef -- unlike you it would seem!
 Emma  4/16/12
I learned to do what i can cook from my grandma, but at least my farther taught me to make corn bread.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/17/12
That's the best way to cook. Learning from family. Or from the sweet little old lady across the way. My Grandma was the one to encourage me to go to school for cooking.
Baby Chef 4/20/12
I learned by making a lot of mistakes. And burning a lot of food. I love reading any how. What is your favorite book?
Baby Chef 4/20/12
 
Haha! This is great. So... You know those half bookshelves with about three shelves in them, that fit under windows? I have three of them, and a window sill, FILLED with rocks, minerals and fossils. I'm pretty sure that qualifies as hoarding :P

By the way, I aspire to be a geologist writer... so... I like rocks :)

This also reminds me- I think everyone is a little OCD about something. For me, it's marker caps. If the wrong colour marker caps are on the wrong marker, it REALLY bothers me. Do you have one of those too?
Allie 4/14/12
That's so cool that you want to be a geologist! I used to collect rocks to a lesser extent in that I just picked up any ones I found interesting, but I never got such a cool collection as you have!

I'm not OCD about marker caps, but I am about other things. For example the dust jackets on books! If the top of the dust jacket isn't flat in line with the top of the book cover, say if it's ticking up a bit, I get really annoyed and have to fix it right away. What about anyone else? What are your OCD tendencies?
 Emma  4/16/12
oh gosh....i am SO OCD about toast. i have to butter it RIGHT when it pops out of the toaster and i freak out if i forget about it and it gets cold...yeah. :D
Ava 4/17/12
Huh, that's cool! I'm not OCD about toast at all, mostly because I don't eat it too much. I've been eating it more lately though since we started backing our own bread each week...
 Emma  4/18/12
 
This is by FAR the funniest yet.. Great work Emma!
I have been paid back ON THE WHOLE for writing somewhat spoiled diary entries. Once when I was about 4 I wrote about me being upset because I couldn't find the TV show I wanted... SO SPOILED.
(Now stuff like that doesn't happen anymore because I REALLY rarely watch TV.)

I almost hoard a pretty long list of things:
-books
-things with cats
-paints (this is BY FAR the worst)
-pretty paper
-lots of little trinkets + such.
Oh, and I'm a pack rat, but I'm not sure that counts....
Ginny Weasley fan 4/13/12
Oh dear. I just came across a particularly horrid diary entry. Here it is.
'Me and my dad are going to Fairway. (I prefer Whole Foods.) He just called the car.'

Forgive me! I was only 6!
Ginny Weasley fan 4/13/12
I don't think that's too bad if you were 6! A lot of 6-year-olds write that way, I'm sure if I'd kept a diary at 6 most of the entires would've been exactly like that one.
 Emma  4/16/12
My diary entries at 6 were AWFUL. "Mom's cooking supper. I'm just standing here. BYE!" But good for a laugh, LOL!
Emily14 4/16/12
I never really wrote a consistent diary...certainly not every day! I have maybe one diary entry from every few years, but that's it. I love your diary entries though, that's hilarious!
 Emma  4/16/12
Oh gosh, I'm so glad you think this one is the funniest yet! And I think it's really funny you had similar diary entries as Chapel. What a cool list of things to hoard, as well! Since you said that paints are the worst, how many of those do you have?
 Emma  4/16/12
 
oh, btw, that is a neat new intro to chapel page you made Miss Emma.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/13/12
yes, it's very new...
Miss L.S.P 4/14/12
Yeah, I like it!!!!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 4/14/12
Oh, I'm glad you like it too!
 Emma  4/16/12
New in a good way or in a bad way?
 Emma  4/16/12
I mean, it's very interesting for an intro! I'm a little confused by the whole change, I don't know how to explain it... great job though!
Miss L.S.P 4/17/12
Oh, okay...
 Emma  4/18/12
Oh I'm glad you like it! That's really good feedback, thank you!
 Emma  4/16/12
 
Oh my GAWD! Hilarity, once again ;)
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 4/13/12
Do you get tired of typing Harry Potter PWNS ALL as your nickname every time? I would probably get frustrated doing it like, twice, and change my name to an abbrievation....HPPWNSALL?
Sorry, I'm soo bored and just commenting randomly.... :)
Ava 4/14/12
yeah, I thought about that too.. you know, I just am giving a suggestion but you know you could always change Harry Potter into HP... whatever you choose, we'll still be happy :)
Miss L.S.P 4/15/12
She uses HP sometimes...even if she does switch, we'll still know it's her of course!
 Emma  4/16/12
Oh my god I love that we're discussing my name X3
but actually, it's not TOOOOOOO hard to type Harry Potter....I make an effort to give Mr. Potter the most honor as possible XD
But yes, on Emma's tumblr, I use HPPWNSALL as my ask sign off so she knows it's me, as I don't have a tumblr.
SO YEAH
Harry Freakin' Potter PWNS ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL 4/16/12
Omg I put an A Very Potter Musical homemade Dark Mark on my arm today X3
Comment if you actually know what the Hufflepuff i'm talking about :D
Oh, and this nickname is an A Very Potter Sequel reference lol XDDDD
Harry Freakin' Potter PWNS ALLLLLL 4/16/12
Oh my gosh, of course I know A Very Potter Musical! It's very popular in my homeschooling group, so they showed it to me once. HARRY FREAKIN' POTTER....Anyways, yes, AVPM and AVPS are great!
 Emma  4/16/12
Yup, that's why I mentioned you use it sometimes! ALSO I think you'll be very interested to know -- now that Pottermore is open to the general public, I finally went and got an account. I'm a Ravenclaw, as I expected (quirky and intellectual is a perfect description of me, so it fits)! What house are you?
 Emma  4/16/12
Ooh, yay! I got an account during the Beta early access, so I've had one for a while. Actually, the first time I had an account, I was in Hufflepuff because I just, like, chose a cure for disease overa book. I mean, REALLY
So I stole my friend-who's-not-really-interested-in-HP-but-I-made-her-get-an-early-access-account-anyway's account, and then I GOT RAVENCLAW YAY
You should be my frienddddd!!!!
Harry Freakin' Potter PWNS ALLLLLL 4/17/12
wait, just wondering, how do you know which house you're in?
Miss L.S.P 4/17/12
There's a test (made by JK Rowling herself I think) which uses various questions to figure out your character and then places you in a house according to your answers! I knew I would be Ravenclaw, so it totally fits.
 Emma  4/17/12
cool! speaking of her... I heard on the news that she was making a new HP encyclopedia!
Miss L.S.P 4/17/12
Yeah, I heard that too! Did you see er new website???? They updated it for her upcoming book, The Casual Vacancy. It's for adults though... >:(
Harry Freakin' Potter PWNS ALLLLLL 4/17/12
Oh, I haven't heard about that one! Too bad it's for adults.. |:P
Miss L.S.P 4/17/12
I know, right????
Harry Freakin' Potter PWNS ALLLLLL 4/17/12
You guys should probably still be able to read it. I'm going to read it even though it's for adults...heck, I've been reading "adult" books since fourth grade. If there are any inappropriate scenes or something, it's super easy to skip those!
 Emma  4/18/12
Yeah, you're right, I wonder if she does get bored! Actually, I think the site is meant to have a cookie in it where it remembers your nickname so you don't have to keep typing it each time...doesn't it do that for you?
 Emma  4/16/12
Oh gosh, I'm so glad you like it! I'm really flattered that that's the response you have to my comics.
 Emma  4/16/12
 
The show Hoarders always makes me think of the creatures from Labyrinth that wear all of their possessions on their backs
Chad L 4/13/12
i remember them when i went to see that movie in the theator.....

dang it, i guess that carbon dates the both of us. ><
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/13/12
Oh, is it an old movie? And it doesn't "carbon date" you, Taxil!
 Emma  4/16/12
yes it was. and i don't want to reveal any hints to my real age just yet. ^^;;;;
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/17/12
I've never seen the show Hoarders, actually, or Labyrinth! I can kind of guess what Hoarders is about, but what's Labyrinth?
 Emma  4/16/12
Only the best musical muppet movie with David Bowie and goblins of all time. From the same era as The Dark Crystal.
Chad L 4/16/12
"Musical muppet movie with David Bowie and goblins" okay, just going by that description alone, I'm DEFINITELY going to have to watch it!
 Emma  4/16/12
That is a close discription of it. but i should also add that it is a bit of a mind bender of a movie and it has it's dark points. just beware of the oubliette.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/18/12
 
I don't think Chapel SHOULD give away ANY of her hats...
Miss L.S.P 4/13/12
Yes I totally agree with you!! They give her character..
Ginny Weasley fan 4/13/12
I know!
Miss L.S.P 4/14/12
although I kind of have to admit that that square-shaped hat is a little odd...
Miss L.S.P 4/16/12
that and it's HUGE.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/16/12
Yep, I wonder if it actually fits...
Miss L.S.P 4/16/12
Hmm, you're right, I wonder!
 Emma  4/16/12
only one way to find out.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/17/12
Yeah! wait what? :P
Miss L.S.P 4/18/12
People do wear hats that large though! Looking at that next to Chapel's head, it's not even that big.
 Emma  4/16/12
It's a derby hat, based off actual hats that people wear! Crazy, right?
 Emma  4/16/12
Yeah, actually, Chapel's hats are one of my favorite attributes of hers. They make her so stylish!
 Emma  4/16/12
Oh you don't think so? I guess it'll be you and Chapel vs. Chapel's dad then!
 Emma  4/16/12
Yeah! Anyone want to side with me? >:)
Miss L.S.P 4/18/12
 
(holds up sign) are you sure you want to know what i collect?

/人◕‿‿◕人\
kyubey 4/13/12
Oh no, let's not start this again...
 Emma  4/16/12
it's back! O_o

persistent little bugger isn't it?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/17/12
 
I hoard books
Yarin 4/13/12
Me too, actually! What kinds of books do you hoard?
 Emma  4/16/12
 
At least Chapel's hoarding something she loves! LOL!

I collect a lot of things, but luckily I've never gotten to the point of hoarding...

On a side note, I love Chapel's quilt, I'd love to have one like that for my own bed! :P
Emily14 4/13/12
Oh, I collect a lot of things too! What are your favorite things to collect? Mine are mostly books and art supplies, along with antique trinkets. And yeah, isn't Chapel's quilt great? I'd love to have one like that too, especially since pink and green is my favorite color combination!
 Emma  4/16/12
By the way, do you still subscribe to Stone Soup? I know the age limit for submissions is up to 13, but I wasn't sure if you could subscribe after that.
Emily14 4/16/12
Yeah, I still subscribe. Of course you can subscribe after age 13! They wouldn't want to limit their paying subscribers to only preteens, I don't think! I haven't been reading it much lately, but I still do get it every month! How about you?
 Emma  4/16/12
I've never subscribed, but I might be able to pretty soon. I've just enjoyed the online stories for several years, haha.

Oh, I see! Is that how you found out that my work was in Stone Soup? They posted that video I did with a link to Chapel, so that must be how, right?
 Emma  4/17/12
My story Ghost Horse was in the same issue as Seventeen Across, and then I recognized your name in that video. That's how I was led here!
Emily14 4/17/12
OH, right! I totally forgot you mentioned that to me months ago. I always remember Ghost Horse, what a good story!
 Emma  4/18/12
Thanks! What was your first story in StoneSoup?
Emily14 4/18/12
I collect stickers and bookmarks, just for the fun of it. Horse models/figurines are my personal favorite (and most abundant) collectibles... and I have a lot of books too!
Emily14 4/16/12
Oh, what cool things to collect! I used to have friends who collected horse figures, but I was never really interested in it...I was much more interested in dinosaurs! Stickers are really fun too, I still have a couple sheets saved that my friend bought me back from Japan YEARS ago...

I sort of collect socks.I have two large baskets reserved for clean ones and even then I have a storage problem. I'm so weird.
Twinkletoes 4/13/12
I don't think that's too weird! My best friend used to collect socks. Plus, I find that interesting more than weird! What's your favorite sock out of your collection? Can you even pick one?
 Emma  4/16/12
My favourite sock is one of a kind (I lost it's pair)and it has bright pink and lime green checks and goes up to my knee.

The truth is painful isn't dear chapel? (evil grin)

i do collect some things from time to time, but i have not reached that level of otaku-ness that chapel seems to have about hats.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/13/12
What do you collect, Taxil? And yeah, if Chapel ever got a business card for herself, it would probably say "Chapel Smith: Hat Otaku!"
 Emma  4/16/12
i collected comic books, books of all kinds, toys, games of all types, friends, enemies, and memories of my my adventures.

well the last three i still collect, the others, not so much these days.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/17/12
I can't imagine you'd have any enemies, Taxil, you're such a sweet person!
 Emma  4/18/12
In the days of my youth, i wasn't such... a nice man. but years have passed and i would like to think i have become a better man sense then. I had came to God and Jesus. I now have a spot where i finial have peace inside me. In doing so, i have aligned myself against some very bad people. But do not worry Miss Emma, i can defend myself if it comes down to that. I just hope it will not come to that point.

I also should add, I am NOT with out a temper of my own. If someone goes after someone or something that i love and/or care for, i will defend my friends and loved one to the last bit of strength i have!
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/18/12
wow! that last part is really sweet! :')
Miss L.S.P 4/18/12
it is also very true Miss L.S.P. ....and i have had to use force before. I am willing to do so again if that is what it takes. I might be old and not in prime, but i can still fight.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 4/18/12
 
I forgot to say goodnight to you.
