Losers

Yes, we're losers. We're not going to Hawaii. Not yet. I guess we'll just have to settle for New York and Scotland. Ugh. This recession!

I hope to finally go the Museum of Natural History in New York. I'm excited to go with Duncan's 4 year old nephew, Auden, who is pretty much a dinosaur scientist. He also knows that platelets help blood to clot.

I love museums (ignore the fact that it's been about 10 years since I've been inside a museum). LOVE them. Truly.

And then to Paris one day to see these beasts...

There's something creepy about taxidermy but when there's a bunch of dead animals all together in a pretty building, I sort of want to see that. Very Indiana Jones or Ernest Hemingway or something.

  1. the natural history museum in new york has an amazing wall of owls. it's creepy and fascinating all at the same time.
    i hope you get to go - it's a pretty awesome place. plus, on sundays, just a few blocks away is an amazing flea market...(i think it's still there...)

    sorry 'bout hawaii, though.

  7. If you go to scotland, stay in a smaller town and take the train into the bigger towns... its more charming that way.
