Origami Dinosaurs

This past weekend during some post-thesis retail therapy, I made a wonderful discovery in the local $1 store: origami dinosaurs!

Accretionary Wedge #39: Geologist Barbie

Back at the beginning of October, I issued this call for an Accretionary Wedge: Dress Barbie as a geologist for Halloween!

Paleontologist Barbie

Paleontologist Barbie arrived today in the mail. After reading this blog post I just couldn’t resist ordering my very own Paleontologist Barbie from ebay. Best $30 I’ve spent in a long time. I think I’ll take her on some adventures with me over the next year. Barbie is a silly name, though. I think I’ll re-name her. How about Galena? Any other suggestions?
