I am going to do my part to get things going again, because even if I'm travelling I still need things to read on here. A couple days ago, I bought two Latin American magazines even though I barely know Spanish. Since magazines are my Thing, I always get a local magazine whenever I travel out of the country to see how they do things, and it has grown into a collection of souvenirs rather than just a research tool. If I know someone who's travelling somewhere I haven't been and I think a present could be in the cards, I always request a magazine from them. My three favorites are the one I got in Israel and the one my aunt got me from Japan because of the different alphabets. I also really like the cool kid alternative magazine I got in Paris that I wish I could find here. Focus: What do you collect? What out of your collection(s) is your prized possession? Pictures would help keep it snazzy. Besides the international magazines, I also collect owl statues and toy robots (not Toy Robots, but robot toys) and I have an impressive author autograph collection that has been growing since I was little. My favorite autographs are Jonathon Safron Foer,the staff of The Daily Show for Earth, and Sloane Crossley.
