Wax


Yesterday I went with my friend from work to the Bus Terminal here in NYC to pick up her daughter who was coming into the City from college. So we hopped on the Subway and got off at 42nd St. We had to pass by Madam Tussaud's Wax Museum on 42nd St. Morgan Freeman was outside and Samual L. Jackson was in the lobby! (Wax ones that is). I had to do a double take because they do look soooo real. It was wild! So I started snapping pictures like a tourist! (with my lil phone camera). For some reason they don't look as real in the pictures as they did in person (in wax?). Actually there is no point in this story except that I would love to meander through that museum some day soon. I mean it's not like I have to go far. That's what happens I suppose when one lives and works in NYC. We just take everything for granted and forget to realize what great things are right under our noses.
So don't forget to stop and smell the roses in your neck of the woods. You may be pleasantly surprised, or not!
Peace

It's funny you say that the picture didn't do the wax figure justice. We were at Disneyland earlier in the week and they've added Johhny Depp's character to the Pirates of the Carribean ride. They nailed it and you would almost swear he's real. When we looked at the photos we took, it didn't look that much like him. I wonder if that's we we look in photos to other people?

HMMMMMMMMMMM
Have a great weekend!

I saw that last time I was in NYC. I was totally fooled until I saw that it was the wax museum.

I LOVE wax museums. There's just something about all the creepy statues, slowly collecting dust.

You went sightseeing in the same city where you work. I don't think that's allowed in Washington, DC. The parking you know.

I've seen way too many scary movies to want to wander through a museum like that! But you are very right when you say we should all take time to notice what's around us.

Playing tourist is fun. Just plain fun.

I went to Madame Tussaud's in London as a student traveling one summer.

I guess that's how you know you're famous (or dead,) when they do a wax statue of you. Marie Tussaud had to sift through decapitated victims of the French Revolution, match heads to bodies and make masks of them.

And then have dinner? What a waste of French food.
