The Week contest: Object attraction

This week's question: An American competitive archer says she is "objectum sexual," or sexually attracted to inanimate objects. She claimed to marry the Eiffel Tower in 2007; now she says she deeply desires a geometrically "perfect'' wooden fence. If she were to write a memoir, what should she call it?
