Announcing the Atheist Baseball Team, the Mr. Paul Aints!

Greta in Mr Paul Aints tshirt

No, really. Okay, it’s just for one day. But it’s still pretty cool. Here’s the deal. There’s an atheist conference coming up soon in Minneapolis, on Saturday August 10: the Minnesota Atheists/American Atheists Regional Conference. It’s going to be a mega-spiffy event: I’m speaking there, along with PZ Myers, Hector Avalos, Annie Laurie Gaylor, Amanda …

A Parade of Weird Little Worlds: Why I Like The Olympics

Olympic rings

I wrote this piece four years ago, and thought it would be appropriate to repost it now. I’d probably write it somewhat differently now than I did then (less star-struck about meeting PZ Myers, for one thing); but in the interest of not being a revisionist swine, I’m leaving it as is. Enjoy! Ingrid and …

I have my archives!

I have my archives from my old blog! They’re here! With comments and everything! They’re even in the right categories! Images and videos didn’t make it over, and there are a handful of posts that didn’t make it and that I’ll have to put in by hand. (For some reason, it didn’t like my posts …

But the Blowfish Blog archives are apparently no longer on the Internets, and the …

This piece was originally published on the Blowfish Blog. I really wish I’d known about this years ago. If I had, …

The Eroticism of the Olympics, and the Inherent Hotness of Variety: The Blowfish Blog

Please note: This post, and the post it links to, discusses my personal sexuality and sexual practices — not at great length, but in a certain amount of detail. Family members and others who don’t want to read about that stuff will probably want to skip this post. I have a new piece up on …

A Parade of Weird Little Worlds: Why I Like The Olympics

Ingrid and I are not, generally speaking, sports fans. To put it mildly. (I had a brief stretch of fairly serious baseball fandom in the late '80s and early '90s, but I fell out of the habit in the strike of '94, and never got back into it.) And yet, we are getting completely sucked …
