Are there any sentimental objects that you've kept for many years? Are there any that you bring with you wherever you go?

Can tickets be sentimental objects?

I have a scrapbook of tickets, mainly from gigs but also from comedy shows, exhibitions and a couple of sporting events I've been to, dating back to 2003. I write a little bit about each gig or event to remind myself of who I went with and why it was special. I realised whilst I was at the OK Go gig the other week that live music is one of the only things that makes me truly happy, so my scrapbook brings back a lot of good memories.

In a similar vein, I've just found out that Russell Howard is doing some 'work in progress' shows at the Komedia in Brighton in January, so promptly booked tickets! The Komedia is a tiny comedy club where he did several shows at the beginning of his career, and at £15 a ticket it's gotta be better than paying through the nose for the O2 and not being able to see squat. Result.

I think tickets can be sentimental. I have movie tickets from years past and who I went with on the back - happy memories :)
