Geek-Out Attack!

Oh, good people, here is your blogger, happy–oh so happy– (is she perhaps delirious?) at the Air & Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center, home of The Very Isolation Chamber Where the Apollo 11 Astronauts Were Quarantined Upon Their Return to Earth!!!

It’s one of those god-awful self-portrait numbers, certain to make one appear ready for, say, an isolation chamber.
But dang. What a happy girl!
For a similar portrait, featuring Richard Nixon himself in roughly my location here, Check This Out! (You’ll see Armstrong on the left, Collins in the center, and Aldrin on the right.)
Book-related note:
In my bag at the time this delightful image was captured: the remarkable Carrying the Fire: An Astronaut’s Journeys by Michael Collins. (I had a bus ride, followed by a shuttle bus ride, to get there, and then a shuttle bus, bus, and subway ride to get back. Can you imagine such a haul without a book? [breaks out in hives at mere thought])
