I went to the Woodland Park Zoo yesterday with some friends. I must say while I enjoyed the living animals (especially the cheetah, snow leopards, otters, and wolves) I am a sucker for an animatronic dinosaur. I was en route to become a paleontologist before I was waylaid by what I thought was a career in fine arts. Well, it might still be a career in fine arts once I find another job! We'll see where I end up. I am not sure what is less practical in a recession - working in arts or working in dinosaurs. Oh, well, I rather like them both.
