~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last Thursday (May 19th – ok so I’m a bit behind, it’s hard to type with hooves and Donna took forever to give me da pikchurs), Donna took the day off so we could go to the de Young Museum to see the exhibit about Balenciaga and his designs.

We woke up early to catch the 8am bus to BART and made our way all the way to Golden Gate Park. It took us over an hour to get there so we had to stop and visit a resting room, get a snack and then get on MUNI for the last part of the trip. I have decided I don’t likes the MUNI.

We got there soon after the Museum opened and saw some cool things on the way round to the front entrance.

We got searched at the door. Actually, Donna got searched. I burrowed deeper into her backpack because I don’t like being searched. MOOOOOOO no likey.

At this time, Donna started cussing under her breath.

MC: whats is wrong?

D: I can’t carry my backpack on my back? That’s where I’m supposed to carry my backpack. And it’s heavy!

MC: Is u twying to say I’m fats?

D: No, I’ve got a water bottle, snacks, a book, a sketchpad, pencil case, the secret knitting project, a pashmina, and a petite flower of a delicate Cow in my backpack. It’s. Just. Heavy.

MC: Wy kants yuu ware da bakpak?

D: Something about not wanting me to back into priceless art. Some idiot must have done that at some point so now the rest of us have to follow more rules. My back already aches, this isn’t going to help.

MC: lets just go gets da tikets.

D: Good idea. Oh look how my backpack swings back and forth while I carry it in my hand. It would be much safer on my back where it belongs.

MC: Oh stops whyning alredde. U gonna gets us in twubbls. Get the tikets!!! Get the tikets!!!

The nice lady at the desk gave us tickets right away. We were early and there was no line. Donna seemed to cheer up when she saw the headyphone thingies. We added on the audio tour and off we went up the steps to the exhibit.

Things to Do…

Posted on by

…as always in the Chaos, there are MANY. THINGS. TO. DO.

As is normal here, I’ve not done very much. Although I did get a lot done this weekend. Oddly enough, it doesn’t look like I did anything.

All the small steps will add up to things looking better soon. I just know it.

I am currently working on a secret knitting project with a tight deadline.

It’s going quite well considering all the stitches involved and that I haven’t ever made one of these before and I haven’t knit on anything in months and sometimes I can’t concentrate and I loose my place on the pattern quite often.

…and…and…and…

In other words, a Typical Chaos Knitting Experience.

One main thing crossed off the TO-DO list this weekend was rescuing a blue dryer ball from behind the dryers. Poor thing has been trapped back there for a week.

A full set again.

Coming Soon: Ms Cow dishes on our Day Out at the Museum.

Is the sky falling?

It just might be.

Why?

Because I’m taking a day off from work – during the week – when I’m supposed to be working.

ummm…isn’t that what a day off usually means?!?

Anyway…

I need a break. I need some culture. I need some inspiration. I need some peace. I need to do something cool. I need to get out.

Ms Cow has finally convinced me to take her here – we’re going on Thursday.

And if she behaves herself, maybe I’ll buy her this.

We are both very excited! If we’re lucky, we’ll hit a docent guided tour. If not, well, I’m sure we’ll manage. We have ALL day.

Oh yeah, and I’ve posted TWICE in one day. Yeah, the sky just might be falling. Just hope it waits until Friday. We’ve got plans.
