And A Hamster New Year

In case you haven't been paying attention, I like hamsters. My obsession began some time ago, but really blew up when I got Ami almost two years ago. I chose this strange passion and am quite happy when others indulge me. Check out some of the goodies I got for Christmas:

Hamsters! Hamsters! Hamsters!

There are notes on the specific items at flickr, but as you can see there are books, toys, art, and a couple of games for my new Nintendo DS Lite (another gift). Oh, and yeah, my little artificial tree is decorated with my craft hamsters. Hey, I set it up for photos, so why not?

I once had a collection sort of thrust upon me. It all started about 15 years ago when I wore a cow costume to work on Halloween. From that time on, people started giving me cow stuff. I went along with it for a while, but grew really tired of it. I'd never really asked to collect cows and while they are okay, and certainly yummy, I have no strong affinity for cattle. But this time it's different, I revel in my love of the furry little critters with cute nubby tails.

I sort of like collecting lingerie ... not much else. Do you have any hampster patterned bra and knicker sets? There's an idea for your workmates. Get them to moo-ve away from cows!
Nice haul for Chrissy.
Happy Hampster New Year to you all. Have a great 2008.

I've always been fascinated by hamsters and want one as a pet. But I'm afraid I'm might be allergic to their fur.
