Girl to Spend a Month at the Musuem

It’s like a real-life From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (which is basically the best kids book of all-time. ALL-TIME, right Kanye?):

The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago has picked one curious, adventuresome individual-Kate McGroarty of Chicago-to live at the largest science center in the Western Hemisphere 24/7 for 30 days this fall, from Oct. 20 – Nov. 18, 2010. During the stay, she will eat and sleep science-taking in all the exciting activities and exhibits that the Museum has to offer, mingling with guests, and sharing all the adventures with the public online! And the end of it all, Kate takes home $10,000 and the experience of a lifetime!

Not sure, I’d actually want to live in a museum anymore, but christ, if I were seven this would be about the best thing ever.  More about the month here and here.

    I love the Mixed Up Files reference – that brings me back – and I completely share your sentiments.
