In Denali

In Denali, have one minute of internet left on my timer! At the conference a friend and I dubbed this skinky latino guy with long hair as the official hottest guy at the conference. Ended up running into him and having dinner with him. Ultimate win. He’s from Costa Rica, and turns out one of …

Alaska photos!!!

Yay, I finally found a way to transfer photos! I’ll just share some of my favorites here with you: Eating at Pike’s Place on the Chena River. Good food, but even better view. This was so hilarious that I almost bought it. It was in the gift shop for the Alaskan Salmon Bake, which is …

Never mind

Yeah, so that previous email was just spam. Got a couple other really similar emails later that were equally confusing. Man, I was hoping this would be some cryptic religious puzzle that would send me on a Da Vinci Code-like journey. Sadness. In other news, I found a charger for my camera, woo! …But the …

Conference update, photo woes

Another Alaska update before I head out for our banquet! Yesterday I went to lunch with my academic grandfather (my advisor’s PhD advisor), who I’ll call AG. I had never met him before, but he was really nice, funny, and intelligent. AG: So you’re my academic granddaughter? I lose track, I’ve trained over 40 PhD …

Where are our future atheist politicians?

It’s pretty well known (at least among heathen circles) that atheist are fairly underrepresented minority in the US Congress. Pete Stark is the only out non-theist, and there are five people who chose not to answer the religious affiliation question – which of course doesn’t mean they’re necessarily unbelievers.

Alaska!

I still can’t believe that I’m actually in Fairbanks right now. I guess I’ve been really busy all day with the meeting that it hasn’t quite sunk in yet – I’m sure once I see a moose wandering around it’ll hit me. It’s absolutely gorgeous here though. I’m used to pancake-flat Indiana, with Purdue being …

Leavin :D

Woo! Leaving for the airport in about 45 minutes! You know, I’m really not sure how big name bloggers post so often. Do they just never go on vacation? I’ve been trying to make some posts for while I’m gone, but I still feel like I’m going to be neglecting you guys. Well, it doesn’t …

Alaska Itinerary!

I leave for Alaska tomorrow, woo! I’m so excited that I feel like I’m going to explode, so I’m going to let out a bit of that energy by bragging about all the neat things I’m going to see. That way, if I’m not posting on a certain day you can at least imagine me …
