Several rather nifty things going on at the museum, ranging from an uber-geeky fangirl moment at a talk given by one of the world's experts on therapsids today to the filming of "Night at the Museum II: Escape from the Smithsonian" scheduled for later this week. Maybe I'll get to add another cameo to my list (I was sitting in the quad when they filmed some of the final scenes of "Old School" at UCLA).

In other news, last week was rather rough. Feeling both better and worse this week. I really want to go out and get drunk to oblivion (or to sleepiness, as is generally the rule for me), but [ profile] nalroth won't let me. Poo.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with weary feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

I still miss you, Dad.

So, I'm taking a belly dancing class through Reston Community Center, and I've recently discovered a few Pros and Cons...

Pros: Learning belly dancing, dancing said belly off (or at least in the process of), having a legitimate reason to splurge on an 'outfit'.

Cons: Getting belly dancing music stuck in your head, and having to constantly catch yourself to keep from doing dance moves to said music in your head.

My coworkers already think I'm strange enough-- it also doesn't help that my office-mate had no idea what WoW was, has no exposure to Harry Potter, and is otherwise generally UnGeeky.

Edit: I've also just discovered there are pros and cons to where my office is in the NMNH. We're on the same floor as a couple of other initiatives, but most of the wing is taken up by the Repatriation Office.

Pro: Being three doors down from a Repatriation Ceremony in progress.
Con: Not being able to work for an hour because you're so fascinated by the sounds of singing and bell-ringing floating up the hallway.
