i will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper

Yesterday my friends and I went into the city to go to the Metropolitan Museaum of Art. They have an exhibit right now of all of Alexander Mcqueen's greatest pieces. So we took the bus to port authority and walked the 40 blocks to the Met to find out that the museums closed on mondays -_-
And of course we still had the walk back to port authority. I know what your thinking, why didnt we take the subway or a taxi, well after walking so much you just dont think as clearly :P
Although we didnt get to see the exhibit and got very little shopping done, it was still an experience and a lesson learned. Haha I guess the moral of the story is, always check before hand if a museum is open.

  7. Oh god, I almost made that mistake and just before I was leaving I checked the website! Not only was the exhibit closed (they really do operate on the strangest schedule) but I realized that if I took the train that I was thinking, I'd have to walk across the park in 100 degree heat. Soooo not fashionable. The McQueen exhibit will unfort. go unseen by me!

  16. Oh my gosh you are just like my friend and I! We walked 50 blocks (idiots) to this concert that we were photographing the other night, and in painful shoes. It was a NIGHTMARE. Ugh!

  24. ah Kat, you are gradually becoming like my favourite blogger :) Thanks once again for your comment!
    Sucks that you didn't get to see the exhibit, I bet it would've been a real knockout. Are you going to try again? You're so lucky to even have the chance, though :) I live way up here in the north with NOTHING like that. Haha.
    Your shorts are pretty much the shorts of my dreams. You carry them well :)
