After an amazing and utterly improbable last minute leap onto a moving train yesterday morning, I did manage to get myself to Boston to spend the day with Adam, during which we got lost only, what- Two times? Maybe three? It was wonderful!

We spent the majority of our time at the Harvard Museum of Natural History, primarily in the (gasp!) glass flowers exhibit which was frighteningly humbling and gives me that much more hope for the human race and it's potential... I had no idea what to expect (other than, well, glass flowers), but I suppose my reaction can be summed up my coining of the term "glass flowergasm." Detail... Prettiness... Paint...! 1890's. Gah. Go see it if you have the chance, it's marvelous. The museum also had quite extensive collections of artifacts of Oceania and the Azteca cultures, which we geeked over quite extensively, and I managed to look at a display I wasn't supposed to be looking at as a proper lady. Giggle!

Adam & I also ate, which is always a good thing in my book, and watched just the right amount of Atlantis and Battlestar Galactica back in his room. Teh AWESOMEST day EVAR.

I will drag you down to Providence yet, Adam of Polgar, especially seeing how I'll be needing you and your multi-faceted geekery (once you're done with your finals) as an escape (when I'm still working on finals!). I have few people with whom I can cover the topics of feminism, myst, victorian novels, animation, stargate, grammar, and 'my god why do people get drunk at 3 in the morning' in one smooth conversation, so, well... You rock. And are also magical!

Though I apparently missed this entirely, Neopets' April Fools joke was to post images of old concept designs as if they were real pets... This plan then backfired, seeing how many users are now pissed and wondering why many of the "joke pets" are drawn better than the real pets. Ha HA! Awesome. Here are the three designs I did last summer that were included in the joke:

Fun :)
