lucky

What are you up to this week? I’m hoping to spend as much time outside as possible (and maybe find time for some margaritas and a trip to the dollar theater to see…the Lego movie : ). Summer break have you twiddling your thumbs already? How about some stay-cation inspiration or a vicarious adventure through this great book! Have a wonderful week. Here are some links for you to check out…

  1. Obviously, I love the humans meet animal mating rituals link. We learned about a few of those examples in detail in my evolution class, which makes me wonder if the proff has seen this link. Also, I’ll be super interested to follow this Sea World story as it develops. I wonder if they can prove that whales are only getting these drugs infrequently. Great round-up!
