when i go on holiday i dream of spending days in museums. that sounds like the perfect day of relaxation and fun wrapped into one. kind of nerdy. but even worse is that i'm cheap and museums cost money. something i've discoverd as a compromise is to just browse the gift shop. much of what is on display in there is a copy or reproduction in a new clever way of the art that's in the museum. i know i know, some would say i could do that online or something and the point of a museum is seeing the real thing in person. i agree. but i'm cheap. what made me happy this morning was to discover i'm not the only nerdy cheap wad in the world. here is a headline from this morning's ny times: A Trip to the Gift Shop Is Like a Day at the Museum.
