That Mona Lisa Smile

Having a deep and abiding appreciation for all things big and beautiful,
I was very excited to be in the city of Paris - surrounded by some of the biggest and most beautiful pieces of art in the world! Olga the Traveling Bra visits The LouvreWoo-hoo! Here I am being hoisted up by one of my Pair O' Chaperons, Heather, in front of The Louvre! Unfortunately, I was unable to get any pictures inside the Museum...apparently the security guards lacked a sense of humor did not appreciate a big ol' bodacious wise-crackin' bra such as moi hanging around and oogling the Mona Lisa. (But just before Heather shoved me back into her purse, I swear I saw that Mona Lisa smile....)
Fortunately, the atmosphere over at The Museum of Depressionist Art
was much more relaxed and I was able to get a nice shot of this priceless masterpiece...

The Museum of Depressionist Art to see more wondrous works of art!)

A little wine and cheese and Olga the Traveling Bra
Later that evening, we visited the Paris apartment of our dear blogging buddy, Lisa of OMyWord ~ who, being the oh-so-gracious hostess that she is, promptly opened up a bottle of Champagne and a nice white Bordeaux, set out some luscious cremeaux cheese and pate, pickles and toasted bread.
Voila!...another masterpiece! Bon appetit!!!
A Still Life Portrait with Olga the Traveling Bra
And then, much to everyones surprise, Mona stopped by bearing more wine and...a disco ball! I asked her, "Why the disco ball?" Mona just smiled knowingly as she filled my cups with more Champagne and said,
"All things begin and end with disco balls, n'est-ce pas?"
The next thing I remember is waking up to the peculiar feeling of déjà vu creeping over me as I (once again) found myself in a rather awkward position...

Sacré bleu!
But at least now I know the answer to Nat King Cole's immortal question,
"Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa? Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art?" Real. Definitely real.
