This work stuff really gets in the way of nap time, chu-no-wat-I-mean? I’m super tired from these nightly progesterone shots in my flanks. It’s getting up to the BIG NEWS DAY for me so I’m working hard at distracting myself. I read every single post in my Reader today!! DAM. So many to recommend, but Rae of Sparkles specifically posted about two of my favorite things: Valentine’s Day and sandwiches. Nothing’s quite as comforting as favorite things, right? So this, my post, is about another of my favorite things.

Dinosaurs. I don’t know if you all are up to date on dinosaurs but shit is different from when we were kids. One of my favorite recent reads is My Beloved Brontosaurus by Brian Switek, a paleontologist who writes humorously and intelligently about dinos.

Dinosaurs are magnificent! I always feel so sad for Creationists. How empty the world must be for them to close their ideological doors to dinosaurs. But then I don’t feel too bad for them because that means more dinosaurs for me MWAHAHAHA.

Now excuse me as I read up on some back articles by Brian Switek on various megafauna. Oh, and did I mention he’s the dinosaur expert on the new Jurassic Park movie? How cool is that!

Turns out not much goes with amber except, well, amber. Today I’m wearing a pair of silver and amber twig shaped earrings from my brother’s girlfriend, an amber and silver cuff a former roommate brought back from Thailand for me, and another charm bracelet from my dad.

This one is beach themed: sea shells, starfish and such. I wish I remembered where it was from or when he gave it to me. But I don’t. It could have been 20 years ago or 5, I’m such a magpie with my bracelets. Today is maybe the first time ever that I’m wearing it. I doubt my dad would remember, either, if I could ask him. He’d probably laugh in his way and say “oh I don’t know, Pumps”… That’s what he called me. But maybe I’m wrong, maybe he would remember and now it’s all gone.

This amber and sterling cuff by theTreasuredHippie is significantly fancier then mine (I’m not even certain my cuff is *real* amber but the silver has the 925 imprint)
