I saw dead people

This didn't post the first 13 times I tried, let me try again...


Friday Night: Watched King Kong. Proved to myself that I could never get through the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy. I can’t handle 3+ hours of action movies. And as much as I love Jack Black, he was horrible for this movie.

Saturday afternoon: Play poker. Get knocked out in the first hand.

Saturday late afternoon: Play poker again. Get 4th out of 100 people.

Saturday Night: The Body Worlds exhibit has been in Philadelphia since November. Titso has been dying to see it, yet we were too lazy to go down to check it out. This is the last weekend it’s in Philly, so the exhibit is open for 66 straight hours or something. The best tickets we could get were for midnight Saturday. So we went down. She loved it. I would have loved my bed more. If you’re not familiar with Body Worlds it’s an exhibit of dead people who donated their bodies to this exhibit. They “Plastinatize” the bodies, which basically halts decomposition. Then they strip away whatever muscles, bones, organs, arteries, or whatever they want to show specific parts of the human body. Basically you’re looking at dozens of actual dead people. It was cool at first, but I got bored at around 1:30am. If it comes to your town, I’d recommend it, but sometime before midnight.

Sunday: had the last of our real baby showers. Less than four weeks until I’m due to be a daddy. Say a pray for the future of our children who have to be raised by idiots like me.

I wanted to see Body Worlds when it was in Ohio. Did not...bummer. Now I'm jealous of you and Titso.

Good luck on that Daddy thing. Hope it doesn't cut into your blog time (I mean bleg time, or bluke...whatever).

You are ultra-cool. Either that or there is a huge run on science reports about Chloraphyl.

Tim said...

good call. could also be huge run on Starburst porn too.

I love me some Starburst porn. Will you do a re-enactment of the delivery in Starburst? It's not exactly porn, but I'm sure it will be graphic and messy—like all good porn.

Body Worlds sounds cool! Was there any hot naked dead chicks?

I'm constantly keeping your fatherness in my prayers. I light candles for you all the time...

That exhibition sounds disgusting! I can't wait to see it!

That sounds nasty. Glad you enjoyed it, but I'm thinking I would pass if it came here. I can't believe it's less than 4 weeks, seems like just yesterday y'all got married!

And thanks for taking Chuck's quiz and not mine. And no, I didn't cheat.

I've heard of that exhibit! I don't know if I could drag anyone in my family to it though. I think my daughter would be heebed out.

There's a similar exhibit just like your Body Worlds here in NY: 'Bodies: The Exhibition'. And I've been wanting to see it for a while now! Now that you've inspired me... But I think this one is here permanently. I dunno.

I'll pray for you (went to church this weekend. It rained cats and dogs here too. See the connection?) but I don't think you need prayer. You're both going to be awesome parents! :)

Chuck, there were some definite hot dead chicks plastinicized. Some still a bit fuzzy in the netherregions. Others obviously frozen in time at full, er, engorgement (sorta like a skeleton of Lisa Rinna's face, except lower). The Philly show was pretty cool, but I agree with Tim that you could only take so much. Lotsa black lungs. And one giant guy on a bike.

Please warn me before you put up skinned humans next time.

Naked starburst=hot. (For clarification.)

And I was in your neck of the woods recently... I love me some people from Philly.

We're planning on going to see Body Worlds before we leave Houston. I'm really looking forward to it. Yay for plasticated cadavers!
