Dinosaurs Are NOT Extinct

It's Wacky Wednesday time again folks, and I'm here to tell ya that dinosaurs are alive and well on this planet of ours. You may have thought they all died out due to some asteroid, volcanic activity, or even the ice age some 65 million years ago, but that just ain't true. Nope, dinosaurs are right here in your friends' and neighbors' homes and they are quite friendly creatures. They are compatible with all sorts of modern day conveniences and even make cute little humming noises when they get charged up. Granted these dinosaurs are quite heavy to lug around, so you definitely need an extra large space to house them, but they really don't eat as much as you might imagine.

Here is a picture of my personal dinosaur. Yeppers, that was our family computer monitor, circa 1995'ish, that we used daily right up until Sunday. That dinosaur worked just fine and dandy. We are the type of folks who live by the motto, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Check out the size of that sucker!!!! It takes 2 grown men to lift that bad boy. Funny thing is I never knew there was an issue with it until some of my friends would come into my cave and make comments like, "how OLD is your computer" or "if you had a smaller monitor you would have more work space". Guess that was their way of sayin', "Girl, you need a serious update"!!!!

So, I ended up buying a quirky desk at a second hand store because the old particle board desk was literally falling apart. The poor old dinosaur barely fit on my new desk. As luck would have it, Mother's Day was on Sunday and lookey what I got for being such a good Mommy:

WHOO HOO, a sleek, skinny new monitor so I can feel like I'm actually part of the 21st century. Although it was sad to say good-bye to my pet dinosaur, I know that he was well taken care of for many years and he has well outlived his life expectancy. Plus, he's certainly not dead yet. I plan on donating him to science, or some other worthy cause so others may study him and continue to use him for many more years to come.


And to celebrate the end of the dinosaur era, I hung up a really cool cork board in my cave to make it a little more personal for all of the creativity that goes on in this little space of mine. I'm feelin' all charged up now with my new sleek monitor, my quirky second hand desk, and my cork board that embodies the spirit of my blog. Who knows where my warped and wacky mind will take me next.

  6. What a nice mother's day gift. I still have the gouges in my wall from one of those old dinosaurs - I could never get the damn thing tight enough in the corner to have room for the keyboard.

  11. I like it! Honestly it hasn't been that long ago when we still had one of those monsters. And to think at one time it was the latest and greatest!
