I like shiny things. And when I find them, I put them here.

Eventually I became a librarian instead
I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark when I was 10. By the time we got home from the theatre I had decided I wanted to be an archaeologist when I grew up. I held on to that dream right up until college, and Archaeology 101. Do you know how much math is involved in the field? Probability, statistics ... I never saw the first bull whip.
I switched to the museum track instead.
Now, don't get me wrong. I have nothing but respect for those who do pursue the discipline, and for the work they do. I offer this simply as a friendly FYI.
