Hello again! Yes, I’ve been gone a long time. This is due to some combination of the following reasons:
a. Crazy wedding season that included lots of flying around the country and/or choreographing dance routines for people
b. Going to Africa (!!!)
c. Being a no good very bad blogger.
I will be posting soon about some of the above reasons (can you guess which?). But first, it’s Halloween and I love my costume.
And it has to do with movies. So here we go.
Saturday night I attended a party with the theme of Classic Movies (“classic” to be interpreted as you saw fit), which was particularly perfect for someone who, y’know, likes movies or something.
The boyfriend and I were pretty darn excited when we came up with our idea, and so I thought I would share.
It’s all in the props. And I must say, I really enjoyed carrying around Sammy J.’s arm all night.*
Pretty close, right?**
But my reenactments of Jurassic Park scenes don’t end there…
Last year, we went on a trip to Kauai and I was very excited to see some of the sites used in the filming of this “Classic” film. I meant to post about it all last year, and that clearly didn’t happen, but it’s applicable once again so just go with it.
We were lucky enough to take a helicopter ride around the island and got to see the waterfall where they landed…in a helicopter! (this is my own video)
And we went on a tour of the Allerton Garden, which, #1, is beautiful and if you are ever in Kauai you should visit it, and #2, includes the giant Moreton Bay Fig Trees featured in the film. These are the trees up which Dr. Grant and the two kids spend the night (where the brachiosaurus…es…- um, brachiosauri? – say hi in the morning and one sneezes on Lex) and between whose GIANT roots Alan finds the eggs proving that the dinosaurs are breeding.
The moral of this story? I dunno. I like Jurassic Park? I AM Laura Dern? Um…
*In case you’re curious – yes, we found that severed arm AS IS at the Halloween Store.
** Yes, I know she was wearing shorts and that was the plan… until it started SNOWING.
