This week has been so busy! I seriously feel like I haven't even had time to breathe, it's ridiculous! So after getting my 10 page proposal done for my research paper (that's just the proposal--what the heck??!), I'm taking a break and going back to London Town--well, actually Yorkshire Town, but you get the idea. :)
So, how many museums can you take on one trip?! I mean, seriously--a museum every day it seems... and somehow I love it! :) This was by far my favorite one though, hands down; after Fountains Abbey, Tony dropped us off in downtown York to explore. Only three of us went to the York Castle Museum--the rest went shopping (of course, haha!). But let me tell you, we three had such a blast!
Can't you tell? Sitting on the pot--literally... wahaha! What an awesome museum!
Yes, it did have authentic smells...
And the history of feminine hygiene... what a fun exhibit. :P
and some more toilets...
Cathedral hygiene--how fitting!
Enough bathroom talk--time to head off to old time Yorkshire!
and... school? I thought we were taking a vacation!
Figures--forever workin' day and night.
It's like being put in prison--literally! Wait, how did I get back here?!?
Village Idiot. Figures.
But I got out--found the weapons exhibit. ;)
Heck yes--I could handle a sword--think I could fit that in my suitcase? Oh yeah, I look good with that. ;)
Of course, how fitting--on to the wedding exhibit? I'm sure there's some metaphorical irony in this... but then again, I could definitely pull off the white dress too... ;)
Yeah, I'm old enough to admit that I would look dang good in a wedding dress--any takers? :P
Hey, and I'm always down with a man in uniform! Is that Wickham?
Suddenly we're back in Jane Austen--now how did that happen? Think I felt more comfortable in that prison cell... haha
But then again, I do love the costume timeline exhibits--so much fun! and York Castle has one of the largest costume collections in Britain--awesome! Check out the antique sewing machines--yeah, my Mom totally has one of those, only even more awesome, but these aren't too bad.
Oooooh, and vintage! LOVE IT!
I NEED this dress. Yes, it's a need.
Really our favorite part of the timeline were these swimsuits--why can't they make cute ones like these? Modest, flattering, and just adorable. Much better than some skimpy bikini. Changed my mind--THIS I NEED.
Such a cool place--best museum EVER. :D
