There are a few things that I can think of at the top of my head that I have a particular liking to and I'm not sure why.

Here's a few:

1) Ships (Mainly old fashioned ones but I'll accept modern as well)
2) Street urchins (As in Oliver Twist, I'm a child at heart)
3) All Things French (When I don't even have any French in me :( )
4) Bridges... (I love being in high places)

I like to say that I was a sailor and such in another life, even if I don't particularly believe in that sort of thing, but it's fun to speculate.

I'd like to know if anybody else has something they're drawn to?

How did you know about my super secret collection of rare and vintage 9-volts?

Mostly electrochemical cells; the conversion of chemical into electrical energy; portable power-sources; lead-acid and lithium-ion technology; stand-by power-supplies; the history and work of Alessandro Volta; the life and times of John Frederic Daniell; reduction potential in voltaic cells, and so on.

You don't know batteries till you've stuck a wire into the spring clips of a 6-volt and watched it melt.

I.T. tech manuals. I got more of those than fiction books on my ereader.

Then celebrate vingt quatorze!

Paper!

Especially if it's measuring 2.61 inches wide by 6.14 inches long, and adorned with with odd green numbers and symbols with centered portraits of past presidents or famous Americans on one side, and a salute to architecture on the other! If you happen upon any of these, PM me and I'll tell you where you can send them.

Dipping Wendy's french fries in a chocolate frosty.

I'm not a fan of the items on their own, but together - yum.

*ahem* ETA per "mod note": and various and sundry items which require BATTERIES. Better, sweetness?

Pens and notebooks. I rarely even write in the notebooks anymore, but when I see a pretty one all clean and college ruled, I can't resist.

Starting to have one for Dante Alighieri, I think, mainly, because my experience(s) & mindset are similar to his. Although, I have to admit, my life is a bit more self-inflicted than his was.

I read Dan Brown's 'Inferno' (great ending, by the way) & learned a lot more about Dante than I might have liked, to the point where I started neglecting to read the book because I didn't want to know any more. Eventually, I just ended up looking him up on Wikipedia, was very bizarrely emotional about the whole thing (even up to how he died & where he was buried) &, now, I just feel almost kind of jovial any time someone brings up his work.

Maybe I was him in a past life? If I was, I really doubt I enjoyed it very much...
