My Trip to NYC: The Metropolitan Museum

Schwoo…I made it to my most favorite museum in the world. The Metropolitan. Two hours later.


Last year when we came, I didn’t get the pleasure of coming by myself. Sweetman rushes me through things he doesn’t like to do, but takes forever to shop, inspecting seams, button holes, zippers, pockets and God knows what else. Oooo, I think I married my mother. Now that’s scary. My mother in my husband’s body. Creepy-deepy. Ooky-spooky.

Okay. Enough blabber…

When I walked into the crowded mouth of the museum, I had to let security go through my purse. Question. How come it is security checks are done inside buildings, not six feet away? Outside? Really? Welcome to America. Right? The land of no common sense.

Okay. I know. I’m yakking again.

After, security checked my bag, I went to the get-your-ticket-area. A nice red-curly-headed girl asked, “Is it okay to pay twenty-dollars?”

I loved this question. OMG. The spirit of Robb Logger moved on me, again(anyone know what happened to him…is he at unreachable celebrity status now…did Gertrude murder him?). Special thoughts were forming in my mind. The temptation to take her picture gnawed at me.

Is it okay to pay twenty-dollars, I thought. Hmm. What would Robb Logger do? He’d take her picture to post on his web before giving her an answer. After, he’d probably ask why or tell her it wasn’t okay because he’s homeless or he didn’t speak-a-da Eng-a-lish. Take another picture and off he’d go..

But, I ignored his spirit, paid the twenty-dollars, and in I went.

OMG. “I’m in heaven. I’m in heaven,” I sang to myself once I stepped foot into the first exhibition.

Next stop: The Byzantine Era.









Religious nuts, you know. They existed back then, too.



These are a few of my favorite exhibits. There’s so much more, but I’m running out of time this morning. Besides, I’ve got a show to catch at two-thirty. Wicked. Well, not in real time. Instead, I’ve got an appointment with my massage therapist.

That’s all for now folks!!!

Have a great day blogging, reading, and writing!!!


PS Save a local library!


  1. Hey, Watch it.
    I love you.
    I love that museum!
    I loved Robblogger
    I always will love Jesus.
    Seems kind of nutty I guess to love....

  2. @Eve: Didn't mean to upset you, but have you ever read any books on the Byzantine Era. They did a lot of killing in the name of God. They also fought over who'd own Jeruselem.

    It's fine to love Jesus. Just hate it when people use his name to create wars. That's just nutty.

  3. Hello my dearest. People are still doing it and always will. I guess it's place of passion.
    Still fighting over land in Israel...
    Still and always will fight and still and always will blame God. Yes. Very nutty, and I don't think I'm a zealot, but I do go to church every week and I pray every night so that all my friends and family can not get tangled up in other people's horse-feathers. Love,
    P.S. Satan was around in the Byzantine era too.

  4. Eve: Yup. Satan's been around a little too long. In fact, he's muddled everything up. He's been a great propagandist, in deed.

    No. You're not nutty for going to church or praying. Praying is a good thing.

  5. Wow. I've never been asked if an amount they are charging is okay before. How sweet is that? Glad you had such a great day!

  6. Sounds like it was the right thing to do to pay those $20!

  7. I'd love to see the Met someday. I try to go to the Field Museum here in Chicago alone as well, so I can move at my own pace.

  8. @ Ellie and Annette: It did strike me strange they asked if $20.00 was okay to pay. Since I know museums are funded by grants and donations, I paid. Not to mention, this is a museum you could spend all day in. I know I didn't get to all the exhibits, but there is next year.

    @Doc: The only way to travel through a museum is on slow.

  9. @Siv: Yes. I am. And, so are you.

  10. It looks like a gorgeous museum. I must go there post haste.

    Rumor has it Robb's being held hostage a la Misery scenario.

  11. @Wills: The museum is beautiful indeed. And as for Robb, maybe he needs rescued. Has Gertrude taken him hostage?


Let me know what you think.
