let them eat cake

by on Jan.31, 2012, under Uncategorized

I traveled to Washington DC a while back for some super serious business. I’ve been before and while there I felt the need to take in some sights and put some knowledge into by brain, if for nothing else than to pull out some interesting factoid if I’m ever in a desperately boring conversation at a cocktail party.
Anywhoo, one place I visited was THE National Natural History Museum. It’s the museum that has really neat stuff like a giant squid, a couple of real mummies, and an extensive taxidermy collection, just to name a few things.
It also has these suckers…diamond earrings once owned my the former French Queen Marie Antoinette, who was famously guillotined.

Pretty amazing right?!

Let them eat cake, 20.34 carats of cake.
