I also love the beach, especially when I get paid to be there.... ;D Unfortunately not many of my friends want to take walks with me any longer because I always trail behind, collecting rare stuff. At least that's what they say until we get there. Then you can see all of them sitting between shells and stuffing as many of them into their bags as they can... ;D. Probably all those long unused hunter/gatherer genes kicking in
It was about 3 pm (yes, I'm from Europe) and I was sitting in my lab counting diatom samples when someone on the corridor mentioned that a plane hit the WTC. At first everybody thought it was an accident, probably involving a small plane like a cessna whose pilot had lost orientation. But when I got home two hours later, my boyfriend just dragged me into our appartment and in front of the tv. It was so unbelievable! I have lots of friends and relatives in the US and it took me a week to confirm that no one was involved.
