Definition: (adj) having or showing strong feelings of desire
Location Placed: Signature Theater, New York City, New York
Date Placed: 3/23/14 at 1:45pm





Had I been a bit better in planning, I would've made sure the word I left here was appropriate. It would've made for a bit of fun as the show I was going to see was titled Appropriate. Definitely a very engaging show and I enjoyed how it played out. It's about a dysfunctional family that comes together at the old southern homestead when the patriarch passes away. If you happen to be in the City and in the mood for a solid show, I would definitely recommend checking it out!

I had seen the "You Were Here" mugs when I was in San Fransisco over the summer and really liked them. Ever since, if I am somewhere new, I try to see what design they have for that location. I wasn't overjoyed with any of the ones in Florida but knew New York City would definitely have a good one. And it did not disappoint! The skyline on the mug is really awesome, and I look forward to putting it on a shelf once I have a shelf to put it on. Here's to hoping they keep them around for a while so I can collect some neat other ones!

As it sometimes happens, I went into the FedEx place wondering if I would be "made." It all stems back from the time I placed a crane in a UPS Store and the emailed me a picture of myself placing the crane. I know these postage stores happen to have a good amount of cameras, so I always feel far more conspicuous than normal. Thankfully I was in and out quite quickly and don't think I was spotted. But even if I was, it wouldn't stop me from placing my paper cranes!

Location Placed: Maison Kayser, New York City, New York

I'm a sucker for a good pastry. So when I passed by Maison Kayser, I decided it would be a good idea to pick up a chocolate croissant to tide me over until it was dinner time. Although not the best chocolate croissant I've ever had, it did the trick and tasted quite yummy. It's hard to get a good croissant around where I live so I definitely make it my treat for when I visit the City.

Location Placed: Manhattan Branch, New York Library, New York City, New York

I attempted to visit the main New York Public Library branch to see the Children's Literature exhibit, which I heard was awesome. However I must've checked the times for the wrong library as this branch didn't open until 1 in the afternoon on Sundays. It was too cold to wait outside for 45 minutes, so I decided to do some additional crane placing before heading back to see the show.

574. Plush

574. Plush
Definition: (adj) richly luxurious and expensive
Location Placed: Kinokuniya Bookstore, New York City, New York
Date Placed: 3/23/14 at 12:10pm





I was looking for a few little things to do and see that I hadn't done before in the City. I found the Kinokuniya Bookstore, which conveniently enough has a wonderful stationary section! I was very excited to go as I always am looking for some new paper to make my paper cranes with. And boy did I ever! I ended up picking up a couple packs of paper. I definitely won't need any more paper for the rest of my project. I just can't resist! I would definitely recommend checking them out if you're in the market for origami paper or a solid Asian book selection.

573. Jest

573. Jest
Definition: (v) speak or act in a joking manner
Location Placed: New York Port Authority, New York City, New York
Date Placed: 3/23/14 at 11:53am





I was headed up to the city to see a friends off-Broadway show and for a little catch up time. I wanted to make sure I was a bit early as I had never been to the location before and hadn't taken the bus up from where I live. It was definitely quite easy and not all that long a trip. Definitely cheaper than parking for the day since I went on my own. Probably would be cheaper to drive up and park if it was a few people. But the bus was definitely a convenient way to get up there and I would definitely do it again next time I am taking a solo trip to the City.

572. Gallivant

572. Gallivant
Definition: (v) going from one place to another in search of entertainment or pleasure
Location Placed: World of Wings, Teaneck, New Jersey
Date Placed: 3/9/13 at 1:01pm





As one of my gift for Christmas, I was given several day trips to use as someone know how much I like seeing and doing new things. So they came up with the World of Wings, which is a museum a bit north from where we lived, where they have exhibits on different types of bugs, lots of live reptiles, and a butterfly atrium. The butterfly atrium was obviously the drawing point for us. I love butterflies, and love to take pictures of them. They float around gently and land wherever they want. World of Wings had a wide variety of butterflies fluttering about, which made it a great place for pictures. And since it is indoors, you can go and enjoy this place during the colder months!

Location Placed: Yellow Banks Grove, Largo, Florida

I had seen signs for this place several times a visit every time I was down, but had never managed to get in there. My Dad assumed it was a tourist trap but my cousin insisted we try the juice. We didn't end up getting juice but we did manage to get real Orange and Vanilla swirls. It was definitely an awesome way to wrap up a trip to Florida. They also had lots of little snacks and jams and goodies. I ended up bringing back a guava jelly and a cherry pineapple orange jam. I'm definitely looking forward to trying them out!

The Indian Rocks Beach History Museum is somewhere I wanted to visit the last time I was down visiting, but it was being renovated. So I made sure to put it on my list of things to do this visit! It is a lovely little museum staffed by wonderfully informative ladies. It had lots of awesome old maps and articles from newspapers. They had a number of different exhibits about the area, the settlers, the artifacts. It was just a very nice local history museum.
