Trinh and I spent our first Saturday together exploring this museum. No sign of Ben Stiller and absolutely no exhibits came to life. Bit of a bummer. It’s almost as if that movie was all make-believe. Still, it’s a pretty cool place to visit. The museum itself is housed in a massive space in Central Park. There are four huge floors of exhibits. We were exhausted by the second floor. By the time we got to the fourth floor where all the cool dinosaurs were, we were pretty over the whole thing. Even the massive T-Rex couldn’t muster up much enthusiasm out of us. Sure, he was the most fearsome carnivore to ever walk the earth and a truly fascinating killing machine, but unless he could point us to the nearest comfy chair and Starbucks coffee shop, he could “talk to the hand” as far as we were concerned. Sorry T-Rex, I’m sure you were pretty awesome back then, but what have you done for me lately kiddo?
I think the Natural History Museum is a two-day trip.
We also went to see the new Harry Potter film at night. The things I do for Trinh. Sorry to all you Potter fans but I just can’t keep my eyes open during these movies. I’ve been dragged to five of them now and all five times I have tried my best to extract something, ANYTHING enjoyable out of them but I always end up asleep and dribbling on Trinh’s shoulder. What am I missing? And this is from a guy who finds it almost impossible to sleep upright. I am wide awake during long plane flights because I can’t sleep without laying down…..but the minute I see a Harry Potter film in a cinema I’m snoring away like a newborn (I guess I know what film to watch on the flight back home). Hey, I’m sure the books are good and all, but surely I can’t be alone in thinking the movies are downright tedious? I feel like I’m alone here. Someone must agree? Who’s with me? Can I get an “Amen”?
