It’s Saturday morning in Las Vegas…do you know where your host is?
I’m sitting in the ballroom, listening to Michael Shermer make a case for Libertarianism. He’s not done and I’m certainly not going to get into it now, but it’ll likely be part of the on-air review.
I developed a bit of a sore throat last night, so I took some meds and went back to the hotel room. We had an early morning and I didn’t want to be sick. As it turns out, I’m definitely a little bit sick but I’m not going to let it stop me from any of my planned fun.
This morning, during the live ‘Skeptics Guide to the Universe’ – Rebecca Watson married Sid Rodrigues in a planned, spontaneous wedding that was a secret to all but a handful of people. During the SGU Q&A session, Sid got the microphone and offered a quick proposal, Rebecca said she’d need a wedding party (and a group of appropriately dressed people walked up on stage), her family (who also came up on stage), music (George Hrab came out and sang for the cake cutting and first dance), etc. Adam Savage presented the rings and much fun was had by all.
I have a nice “Wedding Invitation” which reads; “The honor of your presence has been forced against your will at the marriage of Rebecca Watson to Sid Rodrigues… Saturday, the eleventh of July, two thousand and nine at half past eightish in the morning.”
More later, but we’re trying to plan a group picture of AE/NPR fans Sunday afternoon at 3:30 (after the Million Dollar Challenge).
