I got to the McWane Science Center at 1 p.m., and I spent the day looking at specimens and talking about research projects with Jun Ebersole, McWane's Director of Collections. It would be a profound understatement to say the day was overwhelming. But it was overwhelming in the best way possible. We talked for hours on subjects ranging from Pleistocene ground sloths to Eocene lizards, mosasaurs to sharks, and I left with a much better idea of the current state of Alabama vertebrate paleontology. If I weren't so tired, I'd say more.
I made it home a little before 5 p.m.
I sat down thinking I'd write a much more substantial entry than this. I'm going to blame the newest episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, which I just watched, for robbing me of the requisite energy. And the fact that all I've had to eat today was a bowl of ramen and some peanut butter.
Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Thanks.
