Ok, let's see if this usless hobby of mine is about to pay off. Vances threw down the gauntlet, and was promptly spanked by Amanda. Let's see if 2 cross country trips can give me an edge! I have 3 things I look for when I go to a new place.

1) magnet

2) shot glass

3) spoon (these I give to my Mom.)

For the same reasons Amanda gave. They are cheap and easily portable!

There, is that enough for now? (It's a wonder my freezer door doesn't fall off!)


Well, it's been almost two weeks now...no challengers to my 82 magnets?

I only listed the ones on my freezer top, so as not to discourage any potential challengers...but there don't seem to be any more, so I guess it is safe to publish the rest. (The fridge door and side wall were not included in the count...yet!) I guess I am the master of overkill, but watch for "TACKY MAGNETS, PART II"

Amazing! I used to turn my nose up at tacky magnets, but seeing your collection has inspired me to be kind to them. I love how it turns your fridge into a passport!

I can send you some from Utah, and from Michigan when I go to visit my parents in July :)
