No Skepchicamp for me

I unfortunately must announce that I will no longer be able to speak at Skepchicamp, the awesome Chicago skeptical feministy conference on March 6th. I’ve already contacted them about it, but I figured I should also mention it on my blog in case any Chicago people were looking forward to seeing me there. I promise I’ll be missing for a good reason – I’ll be at Stanford for a grad school interview!

If you were planning on going, please don’t cancel on my part – there will be a lot of awesome speakers there, including some of my close Purdue friends. And if you’re in the Chicagoland area and you weren’t planning on going…well you totally should.

I’m disappointed that I’ll miss out on the awesomeness, and that I won’t be speaking at my first skeptical conference after all. Hopefully I’ll get invited somewhere else eventually. I promise I’m not a flake – grad school is a bit more important right now ;)

    Good luck at Stanford! Better familiarize yourself with grad student life, via a Stanford grad: http://www.phdcomics.com/comics.php

    Ah, so you'll be in Palo Alto, instead! If you're staying through Sunday, March 7, you should visit us at the Humanist Community of Palo Alto for a Sunday forum and free lunch. More info is available at http://humanists.org.

    Oh dear. I don't even want to know what the slapping will evolve into if I don't get in. Of course, I'll be so upset I'll want to beat *myself* up…

    Sure, Stanford and California sound good now. But you'll miss those lake-effect blizzards every winter!

    Skepchicamp? On first glance all I my poor brain managed was 'skeptical chimp camp :) – Chicago skeptical feministy conference sounds slightly better . . .

    Well, if you do knock 'em dead, we now have Randy Demain (http://www.xpmedia.com/XSc2ha4vcMQc) to raise them back to life…But seriously, all the very best.

    Not sure if you've heard of this Jen, but I thought you might find it as incredible as I did.

    Uh oh. Seems you need to clean up after a Drooling Maniac here. ^

    Good luck with Stanford! Seems like a nice place, and one with a pretty good name, as I understand it.

    Eww: to Amazon's offer of Communion Wafers, Used … (from previous post)

    If you can, you should still try to make it to our FUNdraiser party next weekend. It may be 30 bucks, but it goes toward a good cause and it sounds like it's gonna be a good time. And you can bid on that night with Hemant that he's auctioning off.
