||I Don't Paint Myself Into Corners -- Trisha Yearwood
I'm such a mixed ball of emotions right now. And since Emily (my therapist) is out of town for awhile, there are two whole weeks between my last and next appointments. (I typically go every Monday.) To make sure I didn't have any time to fall backward, she gave me a crapload of "homework" to do. Yeah, definitely keeping me busy, Emily, thanks. Buuut it's a good thing.
Today I went to Body World 3. If you ever have the opportunity to go to this thing, GO! I'm serious. It's mind-blowing. It was sooo fantastic. Wow. I mean... wow.
This is the Body World homepage...
...but this is the site of the AZ Science Center, where the exhibit is housed. I think it does a better job at showing you a little of what I saw, although it doesn't NEARLY do it justice!!!
This also came up in my Google results, and it's a really interesting (and somewhat scary) site about plastic surgery. :S
Anyway, Body World 3 is FREAKING INCREDIBLE, and if you ever have the chance, you MUST go see it!!! ( Now with cut-tag for your convenience! )
Aaaanyway, for the most part, it was just an incredibly educational, awe-inspiring experience. I'd love to write more about it, because I did have plenty I wanted to say about the quotes they had up on the walls, the art history tidbits, etc., not to mention the cancer-riddled organs and stuff... but, well, right now I don't know that I want to write about the cancer part of things. No, not right now. Suffice it to say, it was a completely phenomenal experience, and I'd really like to go again someday. They'll have added new people by the time it comes here again, and plus, I wanna see it when I don't have to be constantly checking the clock to make sure I get home in time.
I should've allotted more time for BW3, but I didn't realize I was going to want to linger at every single display and memorize all the factoids and stuff. lol As it was, I baaaarely made it out of there in time. I had to get home for Symeon to pick me up in time to get to the movie. We (finally) saw Night at the Museum, and frankly, I was kind of disappointed with it. It was cute, and had some really funny parts, but I don't know... I guess I just had higher expectations for it since it was Ben Stiller. My mistake. But we had fun, and I learned more French, and Symeon pointed out that he's leaving in nineteen days! to go back to France. So he wants to pack in a whole bunch of stuff over the next couple of weeks. We'll see how much we can stand of each other, though. : P
That is all. You are dismissed. = ]
