Last night, Dmbosstone & I took advantage of Community Nights at the International Spy Museum. I’ve been wanting to go to the ISM since it opened but never had the opportunity so when I saw the free admission, I jumped at the opportunity. I was glad to have an awesome companion, even if he didn’t memorize his secret identity and ruined the mission. RUINED!
I’m a total nerd and I love places like the ISM…I’ll sit there and read everything about everything and be impressed and crave to learn MORE. I could’ve probably spent a longer time in the museum if I wasn’t so tired from rock climbing the night before. We did watch one of the special movies so I could rest my feet…and it was about intelligence in the 21st Century. There were a lot of mentions of ninjas which immediately made me think of f.B..
There was a lot of cool stuff and I might go back again when I can more time and maybe…maybe I’ll keep my secret identity this time. I think I’d like to be interrogated by the men in the black suits and let them try to penetrate my iron curtain.
At the end of the the exhibit is the ISM bookstore. OHHHHHHHHH. BOOKS!! ABOUT SPIES!! AND HISTORY!! AND WWII!!! (If you don’t know, I’m sort of, kind of obsessed about WWII and the Holocaust…I was kind of giddy about the fact that in the “Spies getting caught” section, they referenced the cyanide that Hermann Göring swallowed in his cell during the Nuremberg Trials)…I had to keep myself from buying a bunch of books. *drool* BOOOOOOOOOOKS! *ahem*
After we were done with the museum, we were both hungry so Dmbosstone and I walked around Chinatown (My first time there ever) and figured out what we wanted to eat. There was a Beyonce concert last night at the Verizon Center so there were a lot of white girls who think they’re Beyonce running around…We ended up grabbing dinner at Fado…and just hanging out and talking for a while. Quirky as he is, Dmbosstone is a pretty good date 😉
So I loved hanging out at the Museum and since I’m new to the city…I need suggestions on what I should be doing, where I should visit and why…So come on DC lovers…Guide me!
