Long time, eh? My job has be on a bit of a weird schedule which doesn’t leave me with much down time. That means I have to prioritize what I’m going to do with it, and unfortunately this blog sits low on the list. Field work takes up a good amount of my time (I’d share it with you, but the Denver Museum doesn’t allow it). I have also been busy working on my book proposal, which has been slow going. I have a few posts I have been meaning to do for a long time, and after that I don’t know what I’ll do with it.
It’s been far too long, hasn’t it? Well, between fieldwork, job hunting, and a trip to Canada, I just haven’t had time for the ol’ cyber rag. And I actually did get a job and have been working full time for the last couple months. Plus, I applied for a collections internship at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. So much on my plate! But people keep following my blog so I have returned to ramble some more.
Jesus H. Christ on a pogo stick! It has truly been forever. Well it’s that I have been so busy with WAVP, a trip to Florida, field work in New Mexico, Live Oak, and the one or two gigs I have managed to land. Plus my proof reader is busy overseeing an overhaul to his collections space. But I have some things I want to write about. And what shall it be?
Its been a long time since I last posted here. That’s because I was out living the dream. I spent over a month and a half out in Utah with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. That could be a lengthy post in and of itself. But I can’t really share pictures or too many details about what we found. Suffice to say it was a very productive experience where I got to live my passion, learn a lot, and work with some great people.
Here we are. About to dig into the hideous, cancerous world of dinosaur fanboys (and fangirls. They certainly exist, but I’m using fanboy as a shorthand. Plus most of the hate i have encountered has come from the male variety). There are no winners here. We all lose. Oh deep unabiding joy. Let’s get this over with.
I keep going on and on about this museum project of mine, but what exactly is the purpose of it all? Well the reason i use the most is to create a home for Central Coast fossils. But the Central Coast is really a spearhead for an even greater mission: to give a platform to the fossils who don’t seem to get much exposure
