I occasionally make statements that I later kind of marvel at. I once said that I keep frosting in my fridge for “cupcake related emergencies” and that one time that I said “I don’t feel so good, I think I need a cocktail…I mean cough syrup.” But the other day, upon viewing the commercial for the new animated film “Meet the Robinsons” I laughed and said “Well, you know me, I’m a sucker for a T. Rex joke.”

Really. How often does anyone say that? And I do mean the dinosaur, not the band, although if you made a good Marc Bolan joke, I’d probably like that too. Actually, someone did and I laughed. So there.

I do have a bit of a dinosaur thing. But only because I really like the way they look. I don’t care much about the science of them, I never wanted to dig them up, I just think they are cool looking. But I don’t like lizards. Go figure.

My favorite dino is actually the stegosaurus. I even sing a song about him from time to time. I thought I was the only person who knew that song until Emily mentioned singing a stego song on her blog. I asked her if this was it:

Stegosaurus, stegosaurus
Funny looking dinosaur
For on your back are many bony plates
And on your tail there’s more!

It was. And I was glad to know that I wasn’t the only one who wanders around singing it.

Anyway…dinosaurs are good. Monkeys are too. Monkeys punching dinosaurs? Brilliant.

My step-daughter has the same fascination with dinosaurs. Not monkeys, though :)

I'm so glad I'm not the only adult that laughs when that movie preview plays..."I have a big head, and little arms!" hahaha...I'm so lame...

The best thing about a stegosaurus is the Thagomizer.

I'm a dinosaur geek, too, but then again I'm a guy, so that's sort of expected.

Well, I do hope that you meet my brother Scott some day and he is really into dinosaurs too. He will also try to talk to you about Bon Jovi though. Just warning you.
