Hooray! I just bought my tickets for BodyWorlds! I told Nate I would take him out for a steak dinner afterward, but he was not interested.

My mother once served beef heart for dinner the day we dissected some animal's heart in high school biology class. Always thought she and Mr. Perry were plotting together. I think the same thing may have happened with liver, too...

Eggshellent!! I've been trying and trying to play social director with my posse and round 'em up to go see the exhibit. So far, our plans keep forming and fizzling.

I think I may just go and do the little tour you can take with the earphones. I'm a total anatomy/biomechanics geek, so maybe it's just as well. (sigh)

We went to see this here in L.A. last year and it was very interesting. Somewhat gruesome, but that's also part of the appeal.

Well, better to eat dinner after seeing the exhibit than to eat before seeing it.

We dissected cats my senior year of high school. Know what looks exactly like deli-sliced provolone? Cat skin. Know what looks exactly like deli turkey? Cat muscle (Ham, happily, has a different texture and color). Know what looks exactly like some concoction Mom made for dinner at some point whose contents and nature I don't recall but looks exactly like something else? Cat shit mixed with formalin. (No offense, Mom, it was delicious, but the visuals...It would have looked fine if not for the stupid pickled cat.) Happily, the cafeteria at Read Quad doesn't serve anything that looks like dogfish/lamprey/bullfrog/mudpuppy/rat/pigeon, but eating dinner every Tuesday with hands that smell like latex and formalin is just as much fun as it sounds.
