I almost forgot to talk about Las Vegas...

How could I forget? I'm so timely. Please accept this bedazzled dinosaur and my apologies.

What can I say about the SVP meeting? Las Vegas is a strange place. The technical sessions were, as usual, full of interesting talks and posters, and it was great to talk to people that I don't see very often. Because most of the talks are yet unpublished, I won't recap them here. Instead, here's a small sampling of the silliness that goes on after the posters come down each day.

Palaeontologists bravely set forth on grand adventures in the Paris Las Vegas.

All the latest fashions can be found at the auction, like this fetching hat modeled by Sara!

And don't forget to snap up one-of-a-kind designer pieces like these hats knitted by my friend and former Currie Lab member, Robin!

Viva Rock Vegas, y'all.

And to round off the post, all of the colourful characters of Las Vegas as interpreted by SVP - Elvisaurus, Cheratopsian, Siegfried and Rawr, Kosmo Knievel, and our Viva Rock Vegas buddies.

See you next year in Raleigh!

  1. The purple dinosaur is very "60ish". A very interesting species!
