Sacrificing table

What better way to celebrate Christmas than to look at a picture of the TARDIS on an ancient Egyptian sacrificing table! I got yelled at for taking this picture. Apparently we were supposed to know that this wasn’t a replica. Honestly, who doesn’t have 4000 year old art behind some sort of case or barrier? Got the picture, though!

Merry Christmas everyone!

 

Christmas Cookies

I have been tagged by my husband for Linda Poitevin’s virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange. Looks like the Doctor is trying to steal a cookie!

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

We had a little over an hour to check out the Metropolitan Museum of Art. (Twitter) I recommend much longer than that! A half day at the very least. Also, when paying the entrance fee, it says in large letters “$25”, and then in smaller letters “Recommended”. We paid about a dollar or fifty cents (I can’t remember) each to get in. And no-one looked at us as though we were horrible people.

Statue of Liberty

Due to the fact that we weren’t allowed to go into the Statue of Liberty, the closest we got to it was the Staten Island Ferry. This is an excellent (free!) vantage point from which to get pictures, although perspective shots don’t really work!

Brandon Routh

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Brandon Routh! (Twitter) Honestly, we weren’t going to get an autograph from him because of time (we were selling at Pop Expo for the second year in a row) and money (I’m in school). But it turned out that we had the time (very small turnout – it was disappointing) and the money. We happened to walk past Brandon Routh’s table when there was no line, and he was still there, so we walked right up to him. We said that we loved him in Partners (comedy show of a half season in length that is brilliant and should never have been cancelled!) and he replied that he loved that show, too. He was so incredibly sweet! (Morgan of Geek Charming has an awesome story about her meeting with him here). AND the best part? He loved my TARDIS. He liked it so much that he wrote down the number of our booth, and then searched it out! Totally made my weekend.
