    I collect shot glasses. It's a bit odd considering I'm straight edge I guess.. I've been doing it since I was a little kid, but have since stopped in the past 5 years or so.

    I also used to collect comic books when I was little, as well as ALF cards.

    I guess I don't really collect anything these days.
