Neil deGrasse Tyson Rocks My Socks!

I am a science geek. I admit it. That's partially how I got my job, because if you spend enough time at a museum, sometimes they ask you to work there. (Luck, good timing and skill factored in, too.)

Anyway, my husband and I went to see Neil deGrasse Tyson tonight with a few friends and a theater full of people. It was a lovely evening, and as the event was organized by a local library, there was a book signing afterward.

After he signed my books, Dr. Tyson was kind enough to pose for a picture with my socks! He also shared that not only is he an astrophysicist, author and educator, he is a fiber artist: he crochets!

Not the world's best picture, but hey, it's better than my old cell phone would have done... (Socks are Nicola's Strawberry Mojito socks, and they haven't progressed much since NYC. Nearly ready for the heel, but I've been concentrating on sweaters lately. 2011 is for socks.)

Random note: Zuzu is licking my arm.

Anyway, I ought to go to bed, as I have a meeting in the morning... Just needed to share. SQUEE!!!!
