Baseball, Bodies & Slackers

I'm several days late for my "Week 24" post update... I had every intention on doing this Monday afternoon but I got sidetracked by my new Us Weekly magazine and an episode of Say Yes to the Dress. So now its Wednesday afternoon and I still haven't posted it :-) I do have a good excuse though! Our friends Miranda and Brent drove up from Vegas Tuesday afternoon to spend a few days with us. Of course the military had to screw with our plans and Anthony ended up having to work everyday, but we are managing to have a good time without him.

Last night we went to the Padres/Dodgers baseball game. It was a lot of fun besides sitting in the incredibly uncomfortable seats for 3 1/2 hours. The stadium was like 80% dodgers fans and everyone seemed really hyped up about the game.....well, the Dodgers let me down big time! They pretty much sucked all night.

Today me and Miranda went to the Bodies World exhibit. It was awesome! I had been to the smaller version in Vegas a few years back so I was excited to see this one. Its incredible what they are able to do and preserve. I read that it takes 1000 to 1500 man hours to make ONE of the posed pieces. The only part of the exhibit that I wasn't able to walk through was the part with baby bodies. I looked at the fetus up to week 8 but stopped looking after that. I will say though, with all the attention to detail that these bodies get, why is it that the toenails are disgusting! They had a couple of animals in the display, this is the capillaries/blood vessels of a chicken! I guess they pump them with silicone and then dip them in something that eats away everything but the silicone.
