Love is a Giant Eyeball

Yesterday Batman and I went to the MOSH (Museum of Science & History) which is very similar to MOSI (Museum of Science & Industry) except that MOSH is better because it’s in the city where Batman grew up (the city I now live) and therefore—logic. You’re right, there’s no logic there, but sometimes we have to let Batman win. Just like the Wookie.


Anyway, it was a lot of fun and I found this really cute plush eyeball in the gift shop while we were waiting around to see the $5 laser show we sprung for. We went for the traveling Anne Frank exhibit which was okay but small and according to the Caped Crusader, “filled with pictures we’ve already seen in person.” (Batman and I traveled to Amsterdam and saw the Anne Frank house in 2010. You should go. Amazing in person.) But while we were waiting for the show, I spot this plush eyeball and he offers to buy it for me. I never know if he’s being serious because Batman offers to buy everything that makes me laugh. But I think—how cool would it be to have a giant eyeball, right?



Turns out, the laser show was twenty minutes of pop songs with weird light projections and at one point, a flying green fetus. Strange. And with the Anne Frank exhibit being a bit of a dud, I can honestly say that getting Seymour was my favorite part of my MOSH experience, so much in fact, that he holds a place of honor in the office.



How was your Saturday? Ever buy random plush body parts? What’s something you and yours enjoy doing together?

    I have eyeball jewelry, if that counts. Don’t think I have any plushie body parts, though I have lots of stuffed animals all over the house :p I usually buy rocks at museums.

    If I ever see a stuffed eyeball like that, I’m totally going to buy it, because that’s awesome and I already decorate with stuffed animals so it would fit right in. ^_^ Something like that might be the highlight of a weekend no matter what else happened.

    And my Saturday was pretty good largely because I went to get my hair trimmed and the hairdresser spent the entire time fawning over my mane. 😛

    No body parts here, though we did pick up a giant teddy bear once.

    My husband and I don’t get to go out by ourselves very often, so most of my weekends are spent taking the kids somewhere to entertain them and grocery shopping. Lately, we’ve been going to the Discovery Center, which is pretty much a bunch of kid-friendly science experiments. Last Saturday, I followed it up with a free day at the zoo.

    My husband and I are taking next Tuesday for ourselves though. We’ll probably crash at home for uninterrupted movie time or maybe go catch a flick on the big screen (a rarity for us). Come to think of it, I don’t know where we would go if we didn’t have the kids.
