A Fair Faire

Commuting sucks! This is the second day that my commute time in the morning has been over 2 hours. If it rains, it is pretty much a guarantee that my commute will reach at least 120 minutes. Yuck!
On Saturday Gabe rode up to my externship site with me (he went to Barnes & Noble and did some work while I saw patients). Afterward we went to the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Wisconsin. I will say that I am glad that I went once, but it probably isn't something that I will rush out to do again. After the faire, we went to the outlet malls...that I will do again.
Sunday we headed off to the Museum of Science and Industry. We went to the Frog exhibit...I highly suggest it. It is such a bargain at only $5.00. I guess that we felt like big spenders, because we also watched the Omnimax movie on Greece. I really want to go to Greece, so I thought that it would be a lot of fun. My suggestion is skip the movie and see the frogs. We also went to the Coal Mine exhibit. I must say that I was extremely doesn't help that I know some of the "facts" that they told us were not true. I feel like writing a letter to the museum pointing out their false information...maybe another day when I have more time.

Ever wanted to try silkworm pupae hummus, Sichuan scorpion stir-fry, or ant-chiladas with fire-roasted ants? How about cheering on your favorite cockroach in a race? Well, lucky you. You can do all of this and more at the 10th Annual Bugfest in Raleigh, North Carolina. The event takes place at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences on September 16 and best off all, it is free.

Movies Galore

Saturday we had some friends (Andrew, Nicole, Tony, and Maren) over to watch a movie. We watched When a Stranger Calls. We spent most of the movie making fun of the characteristic "scary movie" problems. For example, why does she call the parents of the children when she should be calling the police? My favorite is why do the characters in the "scary movies" always run up the stairs when they should be running out the door? At least she wasn't big chested running in high heels through the woods. Sunday Gabe and I went to the King Tut exhibit at the Field Museum. I am glad that I went to see it, but I do not think that I would go again. I was disappointed in the amount of items on display, but don't get me wrong, what they do have is nice. Maybe Gabe and I will go to Egypt someday...then I can get my fill of Egyptian artifacts. Afterwards we watched Polar Express. I was previously under the impression that it was a childrens movie. After watching it I am not quite so sure. It seemed geared more towards adults to me. My overall impression is that it was alright, but I probably will not watch it again. After that we watched Just Friends. It was pretty funny. Gabe said that he liked the Break up better. Yesterday wasn't too exciting...I got up, I went to clinic, I had dinner, I went to bed. Today I got up, I went to clinic, I am going to have dinner, and I am going to go to bed. Tomorrow I will get up, I will go to clinic, I will have dinner, and I will go to bed. You get the picture.
