It seems I've fooled at least one person into thinking I have some sort of intellect - Kevin Z at The Other 95% has passed on the "Thinking Blogger" award to me. Apparently I'm supposed to pass it on to five more people, but this being something that has been going around for a little while, there's a shortage of people to pass it on to. There's no mention of dire things happening to my relatives if I don't pass it on like there normally is with chain letters, but I will highlight five other writers out there that have caught my attention lately (in no particular order). I'd also recommend heading to Kevin's site - it's well worth the trip, even if he is currently sobbing over his lophophorates.
Brian Switek of Laelaps has doubtless already received one of these, but he has a fantastic site for anyone with an interest in study of vertebrate palaeontology, and the study of the study of vertebrate palaeontology.
Also in the palaeontology field is Julia of The Ethical Palaeontologist. I'm not sure why she has tagged herself "ethical" (though as far as I can tell her ethics are impeccable), but she certainly writes some excellent posts.
Rick MacPherson of Malaria, Bedbugs, Sea Lice, and Sunsets writes his posts on the world of tropical marine biodiversity and conservation. Plenty of sea lice and sunsets - not so much malaria and bedbugs. Which is all good, because I know which two I would choose.
Cameron McCormick of The Lord Geekington is yet another fan of vertebrates, particularly cryptozoological specimens, who writes some very worthwhile, detailed posts.
Finally, Susannah of Wanderin' Weeta (with Waterfowl and Weeds) has a delightful site built mostly around her nature photography. Her recent sequence of spider baby posts have been wonderful.
Other things have happened here, too. I now have a face - I've finally gotten up to putting up a picture of myself. Pay no attention to it.
And my department has finally seen fit to change from Macs to PCs. At last, no more phaffing about with a *^&^%$# Mac! I'm free! Free! (I'm so happy.)
