Flora: Lois the Corpse Flower

I have been to see her twice and then I had to leave town to attend my high school reunion.  I was just certain that, on account of I have the worst luck in the universe, she would bloom and be done while I was away.  Shocking, but, she waited and I now have an opportunity to see her!  I had a friend at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, waiting in line to buy tickets.  So, I get this text - "I am hearing I am in line for tickets at TWO FREAKING A.M.".  My response, let's go at, like, 7:00 a.m. and just go grubs, her stench will surpass our stench and then we can go have some breakfast.  I am a genius sometimes.

Almost a hundred bucks later, I have a shiny new Dual Membership to said museum and four tickets to see Lois.  Tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m.  We'll be queueing up early.  I'll take pictures with my trusty crackberry.

Memberships are rather affordable, if you use them.  Museums are cool places to see even cooler stuff.  Get yours today!  Stargazing nights?  Members-only jackets, er, I mean, previews?  What's not to love?
