Ok now I’m really going to Women in Secularism 2

Because woohoo it’s starting an hour earlier because a speaker has been added and that speaker is Rebecca Goldstein!

Anybody read The Mind-body Problem? Great novel. I will now re-read it for approximately the tenth time.

    Like I was going to give you a choice not to come? I would have dragged you from Seattle.

    Hahaha well the title was a joke. I’m giddy about the news so I make silly jokes.

    Tell her to bring Steve!

    I don’t think anyone tells Rebecca what to do. :P

    Well you know, the hospitable version of “tell” – “tell her to come right over for dinner.”

    You can never be clumsy or awkward, Ophelia: you have even danced with elephants, as I recall. That must imply a great deal of grace ;-)
    In several senses of the word.

    Awww, danced with elephants; that would be so sweet. I don’t think I’ve quite done that. I’ve run with them though, and run around them (that is, run around one elephant in a silly little game we had), and played hide and seek with them. Close enough.

    Hi Ophelia, NiftyAtheist here – frequent lurker, infrequent poster. I am planning to go to Women in Secularism 2 (and my sister is going to come down from eastern Canada to attend too!). We are trying to figure out if she should take another vacation day and leave on Thursday or if she can fly in on Friday – we cannot find a schedule anywhere (I guess it has not been finalized yet). Do you have any idea when the Conference events will begin on May 17? THanks!

    Hi Nifty – I think the schedule is posted somewhere. Maybe Lanyrd? Anyway the first talk is at 1:30 on Friday – and you don’t want to miss it: it’s Rebecca Goldstein. I think there will be opening remarks before that. Your sister probably needs to take the other vacation day!

    Thanks for the prompt reply! I’ll pass it on. :-D I’m really looking forward to the conference! It will be great to hear so many great women speakers/bloggers/activists and to discuss ideas.
