Journal, Lauren

Lloyd and I went with Tim and Annette to a flea market in Lincoln on Saturday.  It was pretty cool – some people were selling cool sutff, some people were selling embarrassingly sad items like old Gladware or the contents of their sock drawer.  Lloyd saw a table where three old board games that we gave to Goodwill were on sale.  (He’s pretty sure they were the EXACT same games.)  I got the coolest rock/fossil thing in the whole wide world.  I wish I could show the blue spot up close with light shining on it, but I can’t.   Without lighting, it is a very striking blue.  Here it just looks grey.

Is it really blue, mister quarter?

However, shine a light THROUGH it and you have:
It's so much cooler in person.

What could it be in there?  I know it’s got to be some sort of fossil, but what?

    I think you know what planet it comes from …..

    Get rid of it immediately! It is a cyst larvae of the khanis montalbonia from the paleolithic period. Under the right conditions, it will hatch and crawl in your ear at night. Then it will lay eggs in your brain!

    Lauren is just fine. Please do not contact Lauren anymore regarding the eggs in her brain. There are no eggs. Repeat: there are no eggs. That lump is normal.

    I think it’s a gem! Like maybe a color-changing garnet! Could be worth money….
