I’m alive and well

GravesCreek2012 060

I’ve had people asking if I’m okay since I haven’t been blogging at all lately. So I wanted to make a quick update to let you know that no, I haven’t been hit by a beer truck or muted by my university or enslaved by aliens. I just decided that I needed a mental break …

You want to know how quickly the Secular Student Alliance is growing? Here’s the group photo from the first annual conference I attended back in 2009: That was the year PZ and 300 atheists (including myself) zerg rushed the Creation Museum.

Open thread!

hug

I’m sitting in the Columbus, OH airport, still recovering from yet another awesome Secular Student Alliance conference. A quote from Jesse Galef best summarized how I feel about the annual con: “This feels more like a family reunion than my family reunions do.” And it’s so true. I love being able to see all of …

Marty Golden’s office was planning career-development classes for his “female constitutients,” where participants will “‘refresh’ their knowledge of what’s new in 21st century business etiquette and social protocol.” “POSTURE, DEPORTMENT, AND THE FEMININE PRESENCE: walking …

Paris Food Porn – Sweet

IMG_0736

And now, the sweets! Okay, a regular ol’ croissant isn’t exactly a sweet, but I had to include it somewhere. I consumed so many of these for breakfast throughout the street. They were just from random bakeries within a block of our apartment, but they were the best croissants I’ve ever had. Mmmm, chocolate croissant. …

Paris Food Porn – Savory

IMG_0994

Because really, the food was my favorite part of Paris. Our last meal was at Robert et Louise in Marias, and it perfectly sums up how amazing the food was. We came back to this place twice because this was probably the best meal I’ve ever had in my life.

I’m back!

After over 24 hour of traveling, I arrived back in Seattle last night. But I’m not posting until now because I promptly passed out at 9pm. Missed all of the 4th of July fireworks and was too tired to care. Maybe spending two weeks in Europe is what made me so unpatriotic. As fun Paris …
