  1. What a fun meme! I think the Louvre sets you up to be underwhelmed by the Mona Lisa by putting it all by itself in that enormous room…

    You've really never been stung by a bee?

  2. Well, that was until last night……. And I got stung by one at the park. I was totally sitting still and didn't even know it was there. They sure do sting.

  3. So did I catch it right – it's your birthday? If it is, happy birthday 🙂

    I remembered beind underwhelmed by Mt. Rushmore – if you've seen pictures – you've pretty well seen all there is to see.

    Too bad about the bee sting 😦

  4. Happy Birthday! I love these things! And by the way, you CAN take a picture of the Sistine Chapel (it helps if you have a screaming 9 month old, and are clearly trying to get the baby out of there. They'll let you do anything if you will just get OUT please!).

  5. you have never been stung by a bee?????

    I may have to do this one.. in a couple days. I just posted a blog entry yesterday. not sure I am ready for a new one.
