Happy Free Day!

It’s February 29, an odd little bonus day to brighten your winter. It reminds me of an episode of Pete & Pete, in which Little Pete spends Daylight Savings Day attempting a great time-traveling experiment. Daylight Savings Day is only a free hour, and then even that is taken away from us later on in the year. Today, you get an entire day — free of temporal charge — to travel through time, contemplate the nature of the universe, or just go have a drink. I’ll be doing all those things tonight at the Pharyngula party in Cambridge, MA. What are you doing? See the Skepchick calendar for inspiration, after the jump.

    Good thing I ate plenty of riboflavin yesterday. :)

  2. My dumb, indecisive self is still uncertain about tonight’s Pharygulafest. I get the impression it’s going to be quite a crowd, with which I’m not sure I feel like dealing. Also, as I discussed with Joshua in New York, I’m not exactly an orthadox Pharyguloid and I’ve lately tended to avoid reading/posting comments there (even though I read the blog at least a couple times a day) because I feel they’ve developed an annoying sort of “in-group” tendency there. Maybe I’m over-sensitive, or maybe I’m just not “in” :-P

    At any rate, anyone have an estimate as to how many are expected tonight?
