The Mini-Time Machine of Miniatures

My sister had the day off from work today and I am off from school, so I surprised her with a trip to The Mini-Time Machine of Miniatures Museum which opened up here in town on October 3, 2009. As I am sure you can gather the museum contains hundreds of miniature dollhouses, furniture, and figurines. It was incredible and the only one in the United States to exist. I hope to someday have enough time to build something so amazing! Unfortunately indoor photography was not allowed, so if you want to see it, you'll have to come visit!

I had my last final today and although the semester was rough, it was much better than last. I feel confident in three of my four classes, the last one being Ochem, is a lost cause. I worked my tail off and studied very hard, but I am not optimistic.

The Lord Giveth and the Lord Taketh Away

A couple weeks back I was listening to a science fiction podcast. The guest and his hosts were discussing the new J.J. Abrams version of Star Trek and the subsequent release on Blu Ray. They were raving about how fantastic it looked and all the special features that were included with this version.

That same day I told hubby that I thought it was time to invest in a Blu Ray player and that if we happened to buy Star Trek, that would be cool.

Approximately a week later, hubby surprised me with both the Blu Ray player and Star Trek movie. I was so happy that I put my homework to the side and spent a nice, quiet evening snuggled next to hubby on the couch watching the new movie.

The very next day my iPod either got stolen or dropped out of my backpack at school.

This just goes to show that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction!

I checked the lost and found, put my name on every list, even filed a police report with UAPD, but so far, nothing. I had initially held out ho…
