When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth

I love dinosaurs. Jurassic Park has been a part of my life pretty much since it came out, so there's no wonder why it's one of my favorite movies of all time (after LOTR and Harry Potter, of course) and why dinosaurs have a dear place in my heart. I remember watching it and stomping around with my mom pretending we were "Big Mama Rex", as we called her. Good times. It's hard to believe that Jurassic Park is 20 years old, but it will definitely never get old.

Last month I went to a museum with Chris and if it weren't for the dinosaur stuff, I would've probably been reluctant to go. Museums can be a little disappointing unless you're really into the stuff that's there, but dinosaurs are never boring so I was content.

They had skulls of different dinosaurs like the triceratops and skeletons of raptors, but my favorite thing was the giant T-rex head. It's just so massive. I would probably cry on the spot if I was ever faced with a T-rex. They would be so terrifying to be in the presence of. Raptors are scary, too. My favorite scene from Jurassic Park is the kitchen scene with the kids. When I was little it made me so nervous! I still like to watch it with all the lights off sometimes.

There were some human skeleton stuff and then there was Native American exhibits and exhibits about the animals in the Ice Age. There were also exhibits on minerals, crystals, metals, etc. and on space. I liked looking at the pretty crystals they had on display. There was also a room with snakes in it, which I was not having any part of. Nope.

One of my favorite parts of museums, aquariums, etc. is the gift shop. I don't care if that makes me touristy or lame. It's also the best at theme parks when every ride has a gift shop at the end. It's because they always have things for sale that you can't really find anywhere else. Where else are you going to go to find a bunch of dinosaur stuff, other than the Internet? And when you go to Universal Studios, they have a gift shop for just Jurassic Park stuff. It's pretty much a store full of awesome. You can never go wrong with that and you're not going to find a store dedicated to awesome movies anywhere else. I can't wait to go back!

  6. Velociraptors are definitely the worst! I mean, were. Dinosaurs have been one of the most fascinating subjects ever since. I was a kid when I watched JP but it's still an all-time favourite. I wish I could actually SEE a T-Rex and that's impossible but well, we never know... That sea beast squid creeped the fuck out of me though. Kraken, much?

  10. This dress! I love it on you - always. It goes well with the dinos - the right color palette :D I haven't been to a museum with dinos in ages. I always liked gift shops too - but thinking of it, I haven't gone in them because it seems everyone else does too - they are SO crowded. Kind of why I love that they are just everywhere at Disney - it's less crowded that way.
