I am a Piece Collector

"I am a Piece Collector" - the words that escaped my lips in a whisper at the end of the game I am posting.  

By piece, I mean piece, pawn...whatever.  I'm beginning to worry there is a psychosis behind it.  It's not the first, second, or tenth time this has happened. And these are the games that hurt.  Not enough perhaps.  Material and positional advantage and in one fell swoop...bankrupt.  I'd rather pay attention to the next thing I can take rather than focus on the game.  I somehow squeak out the letters "ty gg".  Below are two disturbing incidents from this week. They are not alone.
