On Saturday, plumtreeblossom and I went to the American Museum of Natural History, one of my favourite places. sexykneesocks, who happened to be in town as well, met us there, and it was great catching up with her. I took lots of photos, which I will try to get posted at some point.

plumtreeblossom and I tried to go next door to the Rose Space Center, but we got there close enough to closing that we couldn't see a show, so we went back to the AMNH for another half hour or so.

After that, we met nex0s and midnightstation for dinner nearby, and had a fabulous time. I'd seen nex0s in Boston a few months ago, but I hadn't seen midnightstation in far too long.

On Sunday, we got together at Fred's, a dog-themed restaurant I've posted about before, for brunch with beetiger, eisa, and fairyleathrdady, who surprised us by paying for brunch. Lovely seeing all of them, and I'm so glad beetiger drove in to meet us.

Then we made our way back to Chinatown to take the Fung Wah back to Boston and had a lovely snuggly trip back with lots of nice conversation.

Y'all should also go read plumtreeblossom's post about the weekend here, since I'm posting this in a hurry and I'm certainly missing stuff.

The American Museum of Natural History is one of my favorite places on earth, bar none. I used to spend hours there rambling around all by myself while I was at Columbia. Of course, back then it was pay-what-you-wanted (as the Met still is), which was a godsend for poor undergraduates. The only thing I dislike about the AMNH now is that they've abolished that policy, and admission is damn pricey.

Mind, I can pay the full price now -- and would, even given a choice. But I resent that the scholargipsies of tomorrow have no such option. (Of course, in my mind, every museum everywhere should be government subsidized and free to the people, but that's a different gripe altogether.)
