Is it new? Or just buried in a dusty memory?

Digging through my celbooks recently, what with the renewing of the chomping obsession we call 'collecting', I've been quite stunned on more than one occasion.
Namely, the moment of '....I don't remember buying this cel.' But there it is, staring back up in its glorious state of plastic happy. Mocking me. Gloating at me. "Ha ha ha, I'm here, and now you're going to have to display me!"
...snarky little bastards, aren't they? XD
It's actually been a wonderful experience, revisiting my books. There were a few moments of 'I know I have that cel, where IS it?', but by far those were outweighed by 'when did I buy you? I'm so glad I did!'
It's also been very sobering to see just how little of my collection is actually scanned and up for view. Even on the old site, that was true. The cels I bought in my voyage to Japan three years ago have never seen a scanner, that I can tell.
...I have my work cut out for me. >D
The moments of realization have been good, though, seeing that my Tennimon and CCS collections especially were more extensive than I realized. And Yume's Reideen collection, wow. She has a lot more cels of that than I remembered.
(This blog entry is full of ramble, for I am writing it at work the day before I get a small vacation. Distractedness for the win!
Hitting post now. XD )
