You talkin’ to me?

No. No you are not, and I’m not talkin’ to you, either, ’cause we aim to push the magic button on the electronic submission form and get this grant out of my life and the lives of my long-suffering collaborators in the grants office this afternoon, and everything else is hanging in the ether until that is done.

If you really want to bother me, go here:

Look at that lineup: you might not want to talk to me because you’re too busy talkin’ to everyone else. That’s OK, though, because this time I’m bringing my wife with me to keep me out of trouble.

But until then, I’ll just go quietly insane all by myself over here.

    I dunno, having company shouldn’t crimp your trouble too much.

    I feel this urge to doubt skeptics.

    Does this mean that rationalism won’t work for me? Or is it like horseshoes, which are supposed to work whether you believe in them or not?

    That reminds me, I don’t think I ever got the t-shirt I ordered from the last Skepticon.

    Ask them what’s up with their website. I haven’t seen any updates since May 31st. Also, I subscribed to get weekly email updates and haven’t seen a single one of those.

    Ask them what’s going on with their website. There hasn’t been an update since May 31st. Also, I signed up for weekly email updates a while back and haven’t seen even 1 of those?

    sorry about the double post there. WordPress not updating comments fast enough I guess.

    I want to put that poster up at work, where can I get one?

    Well, I won’t be able to go. But I have a request for you, PZ.

    When you see Eliezer Yudkowsky, would you please give him a swift kick in the ass and tell him to get back to work on Methods of Rationality?

    It’s far and away the most important thing he’s working on. To me.

    The Spawn and I will be there. And will be pleased to tell the Trophy Wife about how PZ autographs teenagers.

    Really nice design there. I’m impressed.

    Commend the graphic artist, PZ!

    I think that’s Katie Hartman’s work. I want to collar her at the conference and compel her to do a site redesign for Pharyngula.

    Maybe I should offer to pay her or something.

    Yes, the poster is really good.

    Damn you financial uncertainty! I just cancelled my hotel reservations for Skepticon. I really wanted to go and hear my favorite bloggers and especially to go on the creation museum tour, but I don’t know if I will be employed next year (50/50 chance) so I decided I had to be frugal. Frugality sucks.

    Fine lineup, that !

    The usual suspects. Still, I guess it’s a different audience and it’s new to them.

    Already registered. :)

    The sexism continues….

    Only 4 out of 15 in that lineup are women.

    Does it now? Are you psychic? Do you know how this event was set up? If anyone turned it down or had scheduling issues? Also, are you only a one issue fucktard? Are there enough Blacks and Latinos? Asians? What about gay folk? Are they represented to your liking as well?

    Please don’t give such a knee-jerk fucking stupid reaction next time, eh? Because that helps no one. Do you actually care? Or do you just want to whine? Actually caring means you’d get off your fat ass and act instead.

    get off your fat ass

    You certainly do stay true to your nym. Lose the ‘fat’ too, as you are so hot on the ‘how do you know’ questions, how do you purport to know Joshua Fisher’s ass is fat? Idiot.
