It’s not just a city, it’s an attitude

Natural History Museum 30 July 2007

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.

Here’s a shot of Trinh and I walking through the museum. People seemed more fascinated with us than the exhibits. I guess New Yorkers just love Aussies.Here’s a shot of Trinh and I walking through the museum. For some reason, people seemed more fascinated with us than the exhibits.

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”?

    Now listen all you silly people – Adam can’t help that he has a hair growth problem, nor that his genitalia began to shrivel at an early age, so leave the man alone.

    On a lighter note – I tried watching a Harry Potter film on “cable” (as the Yanks would say), and I’m with ya buddy….woke up drooling on my own shoulder – so here’s a raucous “Amen” for ya, Faystar….boring, boring, boring.

  11. faystar Says:

    In reality, I WISH I had a hair growth problem. Seems the reverse is true unfortunately. You know what I mean Wadrick.
    Yay! We have our first anti-Harry Potter comment! We gotta stick together mate, Harry Potter fans are everywhere. Stay strong. Be positive. Keep fighting the good fight!

  12. Mason Hell-Cat Says:

    us hair growth problem brothers should stick together! All for one and one for all!

  13. faystar Says:

    Amen brother.

  14. livie Says:

  15. faystar Says:
