Today I went to Moma... during the first few floors I was contemplating what the nice weather in central park would be like, but I turned the corner and ran into the Persistance of Memory by Dali... a personal favorite. I was captivated and it was really powerful in person. It was smaller than I thought it would be (8.5x11ish) and I got in trouble for looking too long and too close... so I stopped by it again on my way out.... just as long and just as close. Similarly Starry Night by Van Gogh was AMAZING. I generally don't like it because you see it everywhere from coffee mugs to fuzzy toilet covers... but it's really powerful in person. Kudos to those artists and Moma, a top drawer museum.
This evening I went to Dylan's Candy Bar, a 2 story candy store and bought every flavor of gummy bear I have never tried. I also bought one of every chocolate covered ______ I hadn't tried. None of them made the subway trip home.
Finally, a Peanut Butter Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity. I love the movie and couldn't resist going despite warnings of commercialism and success run amock. AMOCK I SAY! The drink was like a peanut butter cup with straw. Heavenly and sugary. I sipped the drink staring at all the beautiful couples who were obviously there because they girl loved the movie and what it stood for (more than the guy she was with). As for me, I was also there reminscing my first love... each and every sip of her....Posted by hans1995 at May 23, 2005 11:20 PM | TrackBack
