Ok, some things don’t change

From my Xanga in 2001, whining about no boys liking me (yes, I was a typical 13 year old): Maybe I should just become a nun or something. … Wait, I don’t even go to church or believe that hoo-ha. Hehe.

Oh, how things change

I rediscovered my old Xanga blog the other day. Most of my entries are from age 13 to 15*, so it’s both painful and hilarious to read. For example, I found a post where I was whining about fashion – nothing new there, I suppose, but I loved this line from 2003 (bolded): None of …

Getting off my ASS for the SSA

I have a little bet going with JT Eberhard, who you may remember as the brains behind Skepticon and the new high school organizer for the Secular Student Alliance. JT and I were discussing our dismay at the extra pudge we’ve put on, the holiday season definitely not helping despite our godlessness. Finding motivation to …

The Most Influential Female Atheist of 2010

It’s that time of year again! Yep, time for arbitrarily quantifiable Top 10 lists. Last year’s poll on influential atheist women was so successful, I felt like it would be a great idea to do one again. Yes, we all know polls aren’t scientifically meaningful – technically PZ Myers was one of the most influential …

Nifty new video about the Secular Student Alliance

I command you to watch it. And if my decree is not enough motivation, you should totally watch it because it has cameos by Richard Dawkins, Brian Dalton (Mr. Deity), and Hemant Mehta: While watching this video, I realized yet another thing that makes the Secular Student Alliance so awesome. Out of all the people …

‘Tis the season for giving

Boobquake is still making an impact months later*. You may remember that I sold some boobquake t-shirts in my store promising the royalties would go to charity. The total royalities earned from boobquake shirts was $621.87, and my April volume bonus thanks to the shirts was $369.53. That’s a total of $991.40 raised from Boobquake! …

For my ginger friends

Even though the science is wrong*, I still laughed:*Zach presents sexual antagonism as having a lower chance of reproducing, but if you do reproduce, your daughters will be high quality so it makes up for your lower quality. But that’s not right. It’s that his sisters are so high quality, it doesn’t matter that he’ll …

Merry Christmas!

I’m having lunch with my grandparents and uncle, then I’m off to the airport. Yep, spending my Christmas flying back to Seattle. Oh well, I don’t really mind. I got to see my family and friends, and that matters more than the date I see them on. Plus it was hundreds of dollars cheaper to …

I’m a singer now too!

Well, sort of. I’m autotuned saying three words, but it’s still for awesome. You can listen to and download Skeptical by Three Ninjas here. Here’s a snippet of the lyrics: My skeptical muscle is strong like Bertrand Russell I like to avoid fights but still find the occasional tussle I try to act famous but …
