------ Welcome to RTMemo ------

Ever catch yourself being inconsistent in your collection? We're all human, so it happens... I groan about repaints as much as the next collector, yet I have an army of Angelas on top of my desk. I adore them for their sameness as much as for their differences, and although I try to understand why, I can't. Bah. Collect what you like, even if you're not quite sure why you like it. :-)
