The Crystal Age Has Arrived

Know how sometimes when you give a kid a gift the kid is more excited with the box than the actual present itself? Well, that’s what last night was all about. The Michael Lee-Chin Crystal opened at (in? on?) the Royal Ontario Museum.

It was a free ticketed events with tickets to be given out after 12 PM. By 11 AM there were more than 300 people in line. When I went to check it out, at one, the line was about 4 hours long. I didn’t have the time to wait and accepted my defeat.

But last night at around 1:30 we ventured over to the museum if only to “feel the vibe”. Who knew there would be a crystal miracle that night! As we stood next to the line of patrons, a woman approached me and handed me two tickets. I nearly cried with joy (especially for not having waited for 4 hours in the swealtering heat).

We frolicked through the museum from about 2:15 until 4:30 when my friends said it was time to go home. I was still going strong.

We explored the foxholes. We lay around, gazing at the stars and making new friends. And we played in the bat cave. Can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday night (Sunday morning).

I love toronto*. And last night it was a mad passionate love that boardered on lust. What an amazing night.

nooks and crannies lying around star gazing and then there were three.

    Here’s a fun fact: Michael Lee-Chin is a McMaster engineering management success story. Look it up! 🙂

    You actually went to “The Ugliest Building in Toronto”? OK, that’s my personal title based solely on external views and TV “news” walkthroughs. I still think that there’s an architect out there who’s giggling about ripping off a successful businessman, Mr. Lee-Chin. I hope it’s better inside than out!

    On the other hand, those are some great pictures – esp the “gazing at stars” image.

    it’s still one heck of a fun place to play (when it’s empty and 4 in the morning)
