Digging is the fun, part though. |D There was this one time we were looking for shark teeth and it had rained a lot the days before. Everyone was using their hammer and bare hands to find teeth in the mud. |D Fun times, fun times. (It's not exactly digging, but yeh... Fossil hunting was always the high light of university trips.)
So now I have half a shark tooth (I wasn't that lucky, some found more than 5 very nice specimen) from the Miocene. For my birthday last year, a friend brought another one for me. :3 You can buy almost anything on fairs or expos or in shops, but nothing quite beats finding a fossil yourself.
Don't know how popular of a building stone it is in the Netherlands, but if you look at freestone (Arduin/Blauwe Hardsteen for you Dutch-speaking people) there should be plenty of fossils stuck. They're all calcified, so they're pretty obvious.
Shells and corrals a plenty. A friend of mine once found a very nice snail in a freestone quarry (on the waste heap). So nice, that my professor asked if he could keep it at the university, she kindly refused.
I've been too busy with hanging out with my sister, Tales of the Abyss (PS2 Version so with my sister), and reading Percy Jackson (which is my sister's fault). Today when she gets home we'll be heading out to get her Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, and then heading to the library so I can see if they have the third Percy Jackson book. Then ... going wherever else we're gonna go. Maybe buy a movie at Wal-Mart to watch.
... Geez. What would be my life if I didn't have a sister right now.
