OH HEY, 2018!

IMG_5864-COLLAGE

I’ve been super lazy about updating my blog for a couple of months. At first I blamed the holiday season, but now that it’s well past the holidays, we can just blame laziness. I might do a few recaps of what I did over the holidays, but I probably won’t get around to it. Haha! So let’s just start with the weekend. It was a long weekend, which was nice! I went to a car show on Saturday, it was pretty cool to check out all the cars.  There was also an RV part, but we didn’t have tickets for it. Maybe next year we will check it out.

IMG_5885-COLLAGEThat night, we went out for food and drinks to watch the Patriots game. I was supposed to meet up with friends after, but I was too cold and tired to leave my spot at the bar. 

On Sunday, Andy and I went to the Mapparium. I finally got to use my new DSLR camera I got fromAndy Claus. Which reminds me, I need to sell my old one on eBay. I was in need of an upgrade. Anyway, while I was allowed to take pictures inside the Mary Baker Eddy library, they do not permit pictures inside the Mapparium. I didn’t realize this! I also didn’t realize it is a library dedicated to the founder of Christian Science movement. While it’s not my religion, it was interesting to find out how it came to be. I just wasn’t expecting this, haha! I guess I should have researched this more. But I was dazzled by the giant glass globe.

The Mapparium is a giant glass globe with a glass bridge across the center you can walk thru. It was built in the 1930’s. Each glass panel was hand-painted and cured in an oven. The acoustics inside are crazy! My voice sounded super loud in the center. Anyone standing on the outside could hear people whispering clearly. Since they don’t allow pictures, I used their selfie wall to get pictures. I was tempted to sneak some inside with my phone, but the guide seemed to be pretty watchful, and I didn’t want to get called out. 

After we got back from the Mapparium and lunch in the area, I went to see I, Tonya. I really liked it! I do feel really bad for Nancy Kerrigan. I’m sure she didn’t anticipate for the world to re-live her pain 24 years later. Also, I recall back in 2010  tragedy struck her family. Her brother assaulted her father to the point where he passed away. So sad!

  1. Sounds like a really nice weekend.

  2. I’m really fascinated by the whole Tonya Harding, Nancy Kerrigan thing and really want to see the movie. It’s all just so crazy!

    • It’s a really good movie! I don’t agree that Tonya is entirely innocent though, they try to cast her as a victim. Not sure I agree with it, but only she knows the truth, so who knows! Despite that, I still enjoyed it. OMG the mother was also just a real “delight”, haha.
