Yes that is a photo of a fifteen-year-old me (and my cousin) in the year 1993 at Universal Studios Orlando being happily terrorized by Jurassic Park's Tyrannosaur Rex -- I hadn't even seen the movie yet at that point but it was all I cared about, and once it came out a few weeks later I went and saw it ten times in the theater that summer (which remained my personal record until Call Me By Your Name came out). Anyway I post it because that hibernating dino-nerd woke up in my belly something hard this morning when I realized I am seeing the new Jurassic movie tonight -- Jurassic World: Dominion hits theaters this weekend and you can watch the trailer here and you can expect my review in a couple of days. Until this morning I had low expectations, but that dino-nerd in my belly is making me super excited anyway! If nothing else...
that Janis Ian song now! Weird to think I have been blogging here longer than I had been alive in that top photo? Ergh best not fall down that wormhole. Anyway thanks to everybody for reading! And as I do every blog birthday I'll now put on my lil' beggar's cap and say -- hey, if you enjoy what I do here, why not toss us a penny or two?
