These Ancient Eyes: I Seem To Have Made My Peace…

Monday, April 25, 2011

I seem to have made my peace with the primate bones in the Anthropology classroom. I was approached by some sort of small prosimian today that I believe was probably a lemur. I didn’t get a good look at the spirit – it kept moving out of the corner of my eye, but I got enough of a look at it to know it was a prosimian.based on it’s size and the way i twas moving around. It has approached me about five times in the last hour or so…. there it went again. Ok. It’s sitting on the counter behind me. I’m going to try to get a better look at it if I can move slow enough not to startle it.

It’s the tarsier! Oh, how cute! The spirit sitting behind me looks like this:

It’s messing with my purse and my laptop case. I’m taking this as a good sign that the primates are starting to accept me a bit more. That’s a huge relief to me, actually, based on my previous experiences with these creatures. I get the feeling the baboon still doesn’t like me (I keep feeling it glaring at me from across the room), but this is still nice. And at the very least, the tarsier is very cute.

I might post again later today, but right now I’m kind of just having fun in Anthropology, and I need to get back to listening to the teacher now.
