Paul Sereno, one of my FAVOURITE palaeontologists, is coming to @ROMToronto this Sunday and I could not be be MORE excited. Except for maybe those times when I was a kid…

(cue time travel sound effect- swosh swish swash)

When I was a kid I had a pretty strict bed time. For grades 3 through 5, bed time was somewhere around 8-9PM. Very rarely were exceptions made. About the only time I ever remember my mom letting me stay up was for one of my favourite tv shows, Paleoworld.

We’re back.  We all had a great trip out west. It’s hard to pick out highlights, as it all seems like highlights to me.

When ROM Ichthyologist Dr. Hernan Lopez-Fernandez was unable to attend a 2011 expedition to the Cuyuni River in Guyana, he found other creative ways to collaborate with fellow scientists. Dr. Lopez-Fernandez enabled Devin Bloom, a U of T graduate student with extensive experience in Guyana through previous joint expeditions, to attend in his place and share the specimen collections and tissue samples with the ROM.

I’ve just come back from Grasslands National Park with the Grand Prize Winner of the Find the Baby Bison contest, Alexander Muth. I’m the lucky ROM employee chosen to accompany him and his family on the trip (actually no luck involved at all, it was an arm wrestling competition and I’m stronger than I look).

The stars of the Canadian entertainment news show eTalk recently shot a promo segment onsite at the ROM.

Ben Mulroney, Tanya Kim, Traci Melchor, Danielle McGimsie, Lainey Lui, and Jessi Cruickshank spent a day in the ROM’s Thorsell Spirit House to film promos for TIFF. ROM visitors were delighted to catch glimpses of the stars as they toured throughout the Museum.
