It's Been a Long Time...

Since I've rock and rolled. Or written on this blog. So what have I been up to?  Well, I am back in school, which is my favorite place to be. If I could be a professional student when I grow up, that would be my profession. Go Mean Green!

August is my birthday month, so in addition to attending Rare Book School at UCLA for a week, I got to take a little side trip to the Museum of Death located on Hollywood Blvd.

There it is.  It looked different at night.  Ooooh spooky skeleton!




What can I say about this odd little place?  After taking a class about displaying rare books and ephemera, I would have to say that the Museum of Death needs to work on their exhibition skills. Their display is a hot (not to mention disgusting) mess. Yes, this museum is all about death, but only sensationalized, serial-killer type death.  I felt guilty bringing my friend along for the trip. I also felt dirty just being there--physically and mentally. Yuck is all I have to say.

But, on my way back to the parking lot, I spied Vincent Price's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Yeah, I know.  It's a bad photo and you can't read his name.  But there I am with my old lady glasses.
I have a sneaking suspicion that people no longer read this blog, but if you do, let's talk.  I would like to restart my Monday Mourning posts.  Everyone has a story.  What's yours?

I will leave you with a song that was much better than the Museum of Death.

Enjoy.

  1. Welcome back! I hope you fire off a note encouraging that museum to put some 'life' back into their exhibits! LOL

    I look forward to reading your Monday Mournings… you have always been a favourite stop along my reading highway.
