When it’s particularly chilly outside but you don’t want to be holed up inside the house all day marathoning American Horror Story (I’m on season 2, FYI!), one must decide on an indoor activity. In my case, that usually means the museum. Rainy days, snowy days, too-cold days and too-hot days are perfect for spending the day at the museum.

The Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria is the coolest. I’m not a serious movie buff, but I am fascinated by what goes on behind the camera, so all the props, diagrams, vintage equipment and costumes are all sorts of fun to peruse. And the interactive exhibits! We had a blast. It also kind of blows my mind when I see something like Marlon Brando’s mouthpiece from The Godfather and think, Marlon Brando wore this…in his mouth!

I got way too excited when I saw the Lamb Chop toy puppets. Ugh, I loved Lampchop’s Play-Along and loved it hard. Like watching repeats until a very embarassing age hard. Hush Puppy was always my favorite because he was so doofy and loveable. Kind of like the Odie of the bunch.

Oh yeah. Happy 2014! Now that the holidays are over, I won’t have as many days off from work (boooo), but on the plus side, I’m hoping to stick to a regular posting schedule. Emphasis on the word hoping.
