Beanie Babies and Other Collectibles

So I was reading through the forums on FatWallet earlier today when I noticed a company was giving away Beanie Babies.

I instantly ran over to my wife and asked her, impatiently, “Quick – what year is this?” She looked at me funny – which is the usual response around our household. “2005,” she said. I breathed a sigh of relief. It’s just that… well, with someone not just mentioning Beanie Babies but actually giving them away, I thought we somehow got trapped inside a quantum singularity that twisted the space-time continuum a bit and sent us back to a time when people actually cared about Beanie Babies.

I wonder, does anyone care about Beanie Babies anymore?

And on the collectible item note, I once knew someone who was really, really into Disney stuff. She had her room filled with Disney stuffed animals, posters, and the like – and she was not a child. Stuff like that freaks me out a bit. Please tell me I’m not alone.
