I had HUGE glasses in elementary school (we’ll pretend they were in style) and the glasses took up more than half of my third grade face. Combine that with a bowl haircut….I was a sight for sore eyes.
I have had some experience with huge eyeglasses. SO HARD to pull off that look.

If you didn’t win, you can order your own prints from the shop and you can also enter this giveaway for tickets to the Heinz History Center!
(Rare fifth edition sheet music of Francis Scott Key’s “The Star-Spangled Banner.”)
What: Four passes to the John Heinz History Center and the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum.
A perfect way to spend a Saturday on the Strip is to visit the History Center and then hit the shops for food, gear, and Burgh tchotchkes.
This giveaway is timely because the History Center is about to unfurl, if you will, their new exhibit, Stars and Stripes: An American Story.
Next weekend, the Senator John Heinz History Center will open a major exhibition, Stars & Stripes: An American Story, sponsored by BNY Mellon, which details the stories of the people behind the more than 200 year history of our nation’s most enduring symbol.
The 7,000 square foot exhibit, which was developed by History Center museum staff in conjunction with Dr. Peter Keim and historians including Marc Leepson, will open with a special ceremony on Sat., Sept. 10, at 9:00 a.m. which will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the U.S.
Stars & Stripes: An American Story will include objects, images, and archival materials from the History Center’s collections, as well as items on loan from the Smithsonian Institution, The Warhol Museum, The National Gallery of Art, and private collectors.
I gotta tell you, I love history. I love old stuff. I love putting my hands on old stuff. Two things: 1. Don’t make that dirty. 2. It’s a good thing museums put old stuff behind glass because I would put my hands on the old stuff.
One thing I remember about my last visit to the History Center was that they had on exhibit some handwritten notes from soldiers from some bygone time. Probably the Revolution or Civil War, and the handwriting of these soldiers?! LIKE ANGELS WROTE IT! The most beautiful script you have ever seen outside of a True Type font. It was art. I wanted to hold it. Caress the paper. Smell it. Admire it.
Now our handwriting looks something like an EKG test readout. Hawt.
Okay, where did I digress to?! Look, a wallaby!
When: You chose the date you wish to go! This particular exhibit runs until June 17, 2012. Check out the site for more info!
To Enter: Leave a comment! You have until next Wednesday, September 7 at noon to enter. Any comment will do, but so you have something to say, tell me, if you could time travel to any point in the past to experience first-hand a particularly iconic moment in time, which moment would you choose?
Me? Man, I would love to have been there to see Maz’s World Series game 7 walk-off homer. Then I would have charged the field celebration and jumped on Roberto’s back and never let go until they arrested me. Hey, one of you time travel back to that moment and bail me out.
P.S. As with all of my giveaways, these are not paid ads.
