The Museum of Natural History in Los Angeles. I took the time to drive over and get a couple of photos of this for my wife and mother-in-law who are both big fans of the TV show Bones.
That said, I did get to see a bunch of REALLY cool dinosaur bones while I was there. You can see photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tomcroom/sets/72157628095216035/
Good morning! I am enjoying Internet while I still have it before getting on a boat and praying Shannon doesn’t try to throw me overboard. For those of you playing catch up, today is our four (4) year anniversary. Since getting married, we promised ourselves that each anniversary would be spent in “a city we had never been to together.” Here’s the score thus far:
- YEAR 1: Key West, Florida
- YEAR 2: Baltimore, Maryland (by way of Washington, DC.)
- YEAR 3: The Grand Canyon, Arizona
(This last one really kind of says it all, doesn’t it?)
More to come… just not so sure about when.
That’s me in my hotel room the night before. Geeky wedding goodness would start the next morning. Even Joey Snackpants was on hand (and staying in a room one floor above me in the hotel.)
Back in August, Wasabi Anime appeared at Gen Con 2011. I took the opportunity to extend my stay there so that Shannon and I could go a couple of hours north and check out Chicago, Illinois – one of the remaining cities in the U.S. that I had never visited. With only a few days in town, we did out best to see things that we felt were the “must see” elements of the city. Here’s the highlights:
The top of the Willis (Sears) Tower. Worth it. GREAT views of the city and the lake. (Click here for all the photos.) There’s even sections near the top where you can look down along the edge of the building. A little unnerving, but epic.
The most striking thing about Chicago (aside from the legend of the awesome pizza being totally true) is how clean the city was. They do a great job keeping the streets free of trash and it all had a very “theme park” feel to it. Do I need to go back to Chicago? Probably not, but I wouldn’t shirk the opportunity if it came up again.
