    I do that too! The looks I get when people find out about my rock collection(s)... :o:
    Ignore them, they don't know what they're missing!

    I bought a huge piece of Labradorite (Spectrolite) today, amazing stuff! Have placed it next to the window so the iridescence catches the light, shines green, blue, purple, and red as you move it around.

    Got a lump of polished fire agate too :yep:

    My hobby is to try and squeeze words and phrases coined for Firefly into day-to-day conversation without anyone noticing.

    That and my car. But that probably isn't as unusual.

    Ooh nice! Very pretty. Most of mine were taken on fieldtrips so they're a bit bashed but I have some weird ones!

    I am interested in paper and the different types of paper. I spend most of my spare time in the stationary store; paper section to be precise.

    I also protest against tree protesters, so that we can have even more paper.

    Anyone else with this hobby?

    I like picking a direction, seeing how far I can go and then seeing what I find when I get lost.

    However, I can only do this when the weather is warm out and at the weekends.

    And boy, have I found a lot of cool stuff. I stumbled across a piece of Banksy's work, a now derlict ship-building dock, an abandoned girls school and a way to cross under the motorway.

    I could, except that the wider public couldn't care less about vlogs so not much money in it.

    I think I will keep it as a hobby. Making it a job will detract from the magic of it for me :love:

    =p
