This easter Sunday, I spent my time with a friend at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in DC.

Not only are all the Smithsonian museums FREE, they also house some of the most extensive artifacts/specimens on earth. Their wikipedia and webpage provides more information.

One word to describe this museum: AWESOME!! It's a definite must see for ANYONE who is in the area and doesn't have any money but still wants to have a good time, I believe the kids these days call it balling on a budget, no? oh ok. We walked for about 2.5 hours and I'm pretty sure we didn't cover 100% the whole museum.

Ghana was heavily represented in the African Voices exhibition which was pretty neat, pics below.

I have plans of visiting the rest of the museums this summer and I am pretty darn excited!

How the Grinch Ruined Christmas- in April

I just has a major MAJOR BUZZ KILL!!

The mail guy just waked into the office and delivered a fairly large box to my coworker....

Said coworker runs to me with one of the smaller packages inside the large box and says with genuine excitement and that excitement could only mean one thing, iPads!

"Hey Miss Raine, they arrived, the iPad's .......[5 second pause]............ CASES, that is!!!!!!!!"

The big smile immediately disappeared from my face :(

I want my iPad NOW!!!!!!!!!

Back Story:

We are revamping our technology here at work and we've put in an order for a few Mac products including (30!) iPads, (3)macbooks, (3)pc laptops, etc etc. Because of the devastating earthquake and resulting tsunami that hit Japan last month (my prayers to go those brave people of Japan- did anyone see how organized they were hours/days following the disaster? And what about the destroyed impassable road they fixed in like 3 days? Amazing! but anyway, I digress) there has been a serious backlog for iPads. So imagine my surprise when my coworker came to me and said the iPads he ordered 2 weeks ago had arrived, but of course, they hadn't arrived. The CASES had arrived.

I just want my work issued iPad, thats all. review/&usg=__8kDLkvoelfIOIeu0jYkwN8nRmsc=&h=413&w=620&sz=71&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=Bqg-jfzv4OYlLM:&tbnh=143&tbnw=206&ei=8tK1TebuOYjKgQfBxdjGCw&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dipad%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DX%26rlz%3D1C1WCCA_enUS395US395%26biw%3D1152%26bih%3D773%26tbm%3Disch%26prmd%3Divnsur&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=505&vpy=286&dur=1170&hovh=183&hovw=275&tx=160&ty=128&page=1&ndsp=20&ved=1t:429,r:7,s:0
