I'm a Raptor, Doin' what I can, gonna eat everything 'til the appearance of man. Yo baby I'm livin' below the soil I'll be back but i'm comin' as oil*

I was driving the other day and my triceps hurt from helping to move all the furniture (I don't even want to talk about how this means I may have carried the furniture wrong because my biceps should hurt instead. In order for them to hurt they would have to exist). Anyway, not the point, the point was that as I was driving along I thought, "My triceps hurt...huh...tricepatops" Then I thought how funny it would be to name your muscles and other parts of your body like Dinosaurs. No one messes with dinosaurs (except other dinosaurs and paleontologists). With that in mind - here is my list.


1. Tricepatops OR Triceposaurus Rex (sounds more fierce)

2. Pectorsaurus

3. Biceptosaurus (or Biceptatops)

4. Gluteus Maxososphondylus

5. Clavadactyl

6. Sternumsaurus

7. Torsoraptor

I really have no purpose in that, but it was fun.

We finally got Internet at the house yesterday. While the Comcast guy was there I tried to keep myself busy because that's an awkward situation. This guy is in your house for about an hour and you barely speak to him. So I took the time to read for class and open my mail. Only problem, my mail decided to slice my finger open. At first I thought I just had a little cut so I washed my hands and thought that would be the end of it, when I saw more blood I washed it again and noticed a cut right by my nail bed. This was like the old faithful of papercuts. I went through three paper towels until I finally found a band-aid in Amber's room. Before that I wondered if I should tell the Comcast guy, I mean, he was the closest person and who knows, maybe he would have a band aid...or at least I could explain the situation right before passing out from a loss of blood. But all's well that ends well, got a band-aid, stopped the bleeding and went on with my life.


I went running this morning at 6:30 with my roommates....running. I think I am a natural born 'short distance at a long distance pace' runner. I haven't run in a long time, but we got outside and I was ready to go, I was way too energized this morning, especially considering that I am not a morning person. I am happy to report that after my shower I returned to my regular "cranky because I'm awake" attitude. We'll see how long this last, but I am hoping it will last at least through the 10k, need to practice some because I can't stand to walk it with all those people watching. I'll keep you informed.

Robin Williams in Mrs Doubtfire. I actually thought it was Ferngully as Robin Williams does the voice for Batty.

"Does my gluteus maxososphondylus look humongous in this?"

Dang it...not the first to guess...but Mrs. Doubtfire is one of the greatest movies of all time.

Ha! Gingerella is awarded 20 points, 10 for the guess and 10 for using gluteus maxososphondylus in a sentence :)
Though I have to say I think Clavadactyl is my favorite, just rolls right off the tongue.

I'm afraid this comment may make you flex your biceptatops, and while I am glad you didn't bleed to death, can you please put my stuff back when you go through it!
:P It was so hard for me to use my clavadactyls to move back that container.

I'm just sayin roomie....

Um..did they change the name of dinosaurs after I left school. I thought it was a TriceRatops.

something about the torsoraptor makes me want to burst out in uncontrollable laughter.
