Neatarific

Had lunch at Charlie's Kitchen with a friend and then went to see the glass flowers at Hahhhhvahhhhhhhd's Natural History museum. They are super-duper neat-o amazing. Sorry for the dorky dorktacular description, but the flowers really defy description -- they are perfect, gorgeous, intricate renderings of flowers, from bud to root, done entirely in glass. It's really unbelievable -- the goldenrod specimen perfectly captured its wee yellow flowers and its veined, serrated leaves.

Next I visited the minerals section -- loads of cool lumps of all sorts of funky crystals.

The rest of the Natural History museum smells appropriately of mothballs and there are hundreds of stuffed critters and birds, along with dinosaur fossils. There's an ENORMOUS stuffed giraffe whose legs alone are about a foot and a half taller than me, and a giant sperm whale skeleton. There's also a capybara, world's largest guinea pig, and some pissy-looking woodchucks.

Afterwards I strolled through the yard of Harvard Law School, hoping to catch the eye of some smart rich hottie but alas it was not to be, at least not today.

Still, though, the critters and flowers and rocks and things were grrrrr-eat! I think it would be a good place for a date. Followed by making out, it would make for the perfect afternoon.

I've read about the flowers and seen photos. Martha had a fantastic photo essay a few years ago. Sadly, I have yet to make it there and see the flowers. Maybe I'll get to see them before I become a canuck ;)
