Famous Friends

Tuesday, November 21, 2006
Ok, well not so famous and not really friends but I'm still excited! This morning I was reading the Department of Anthropology's newsletter at my alma mater, the University of Alberta, and got some surprising news! It seems that Grant Zazula, with whom I graduated (funnies, goofiest guy around), is taking up the position of Government of Yukon Palaeontologist. WOO HOO! Congrats to Dr. Z! Grant was a favourite of Geo-Archaeologist Dr. Charlie Schweger, a prof at the UofA. I was not. In fact, I think he may have disliked me immensely. Could it be that I got the lowest mark in the class and almost failed the final? He was however midly impressed by the paper I wrote for his class.
PLUS! Grant is married? How the heck did that happen?

OOOOh! I also noticed that my favourite prof, Ray LeBlanc, is currently the acting chair of the department. Congrats Ray! Funny, I can't find a picture of him - he reminds me of Santa Claus.
