|02:18 pm - New York spies. . .|
Who in New York is going to the Metropolitan Museum in the near future? I need someone to scope this out. . .
Yes, that is Eris in the center with the long, unkempt hair.
I need a better, colour picture, and I want to know if it's on display.
Any spies willing to do so?

If no one does it by August let me know (in July let me know, 'cause I'll be gone from the net after that).
I will be in NYC in August.
Yeah, I should let you know :) I might have to bug Monika about it, too.
I like the Met, but I'm not going to NYC anytime in the near future. Plus, you'd need to be specific as to where it is. That place is huge, and I spent more time ogling the replica of a Byzantine bath than anything else. My feet hurt by then (I'd walked to the Met from the MoMA), and a bath in that setting was just the absolutely best thing I could think of.
The info on the bottom is all the info I have. Wish I had more.
I can arange travel & logging. You cover cost of gas & nibbles on the way there and back. I secure logging and pay for own food in the city. I know some people.
I'd go to NYC just to see this piece. But I expect there are some people who would be pissed if I didn't see them, too. :)
But if I get the chance, maybe we can :) Unfortunately, my damn schedule is way too full.
hmm, i guess that was a rather pointed remark at me. LOL Now that I have a digital camera, I would be glad to find it for you. The Greco-Roman section isn't as big as the Egyptian section, so I will try to find it for you. How old is the photo? Hopefully the vase is still there... I'm assuming Eris is the woman behind the upside-down U shaped thing? I saw a little bit of hair... :)
Sadly, soon to me isn't until after May 26th, my last final. I will gladly go and take mucho photos if you can wait ~ three weeks. :)
And yah, if you make the pilgrimage, you would definitely have to stop and see me. dork. LOL
I can wait. I have patience. btw, for another view, where you can actually see which one Eris is, you can find her circled here
Honestly, were I to go to NYC, I would rather expect a full tour. And to meet this mysterious boyfriend of yours.
He's probably not more mysterious than I am, though, really.
I will be in NYC this weekend :-)
I may end up at the MET what do you need me to look up :-)
Unfortunately, that's all the info I have on it, whatever's at the bottom of the picture. I can't get any more.
