10:02 pm - Oh no! It's UNCLE BUCK.
Last night (or shall I say, this morning) I had a dream that I was a little kid and in the movie "Uncle Buck." Does anyone remember "Uncle Buck" with John Candy?



This dream was SO vivid that I actually woke up and in a sleeping pill-induced daze and IMDB'd myself. Yes, I searched for my name in IMDB for God's sake. I guess it made some sort of sense at the time, because I was in a couple of commercials when I was that age and am convinced there is something my mother isn't telling me, as evidenced by the fact that certain things make me laugh uncontrollably, like "bearskin" or "douche." Maybe I was in one of those commercials. I don't know. But I'm rather sad that I wasn't a part of the making of Uncle Buck. No wonder Macaulay Culkin hasn't been returning my calls.

On Thursday I went to the Metropolitan Museum to look for depictions of Medea in Greek vases & statues and European art. Sadly, I forgot that the Met is a BIG place and after the fifth room of reading all the little plaques, I got pretty winded and realized that maybe this was more like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Oh well. I did get a few images, and now I can say that I went and didn't miss a huge Medea painting or anything, but it was frustrating that there's a Greek and Roman exhibition opening on April 20, a mere 2 days after I go back to Scotland.

One of the things that surprized me about driving into the city was how many PEOPLE there were. Cars honking, traffic jams, and huge crowds at the Met - it reminded me that Glasgow is not that big of a city after all, compared to New York. And I'm kind of happy about that, because as much as I like visiting NYC I don't really think huge cities are for me. I am even nervous about London, and it's on the same land mass, haha.

Dad took me and was SO embarrassing. You were allowed to take pictures as long as you didn't use a flash (hence why the pics of the Met in my flickr came out really crappy) and we were walking by a Van Gogh and he said, "Hey Marnie, look at this! This is cute! I'm gonna take a picture of this for Mom. Wow, this is just so cute."

Ohmygod.

Also, I nearly broke some statue cause these idiots in front of me were holding hands and I tried to pass them on the right, without realizing that to the right of them was the platform. I came about 3 cm from the statue and screamed, "Oh my God!" and everyone turned and stared. But I didn't bump into it, no jailtime for me yet, yay!

The highlight of the day, however, was when my dad and I stepped into the Metropolitan gift shop on the way out as an afterthought, and I heard something like, "You're gonna walk over there and not even say hi?" and I looked up and it was Craig Dolezel from Yerma and Machinal, a friend of mine from SUNY Purchase that I haven't seen in almost two years. I lost contact with him when my parents cancelled my cell phone and I lost all the numbers of people I didn't have e-mail addresses for. But we exchanged info, Craig's looking great and is much taller than I remember him! I think this is the first picture of me in a long time where I'm genuinely happy.



He's just auditioned for a bunch of graduate schools for acting, like Yale, and a place in San Francisco, so we'll see how that goes. It's so weird that one of "my actors" from Machinal is going to graduate school next year like I did this year. I told him, "Look at you, you're all grown up!" Hahaha.

I've got to cut this short cause I'm hanging out with Mallory and Jenn tonight. If anyone's bored, there are more of my pics up of the Met and nyc here.
