Skepticism

Good Times Chicago -UPDATED!

Last night’s meet up was a whole lotta hilarious! Thanks everyone who came out, especially those of you who came out for the first time!

While I appreciate all the talk of my boobs, next time feel free to talk about other skeptical topics as well.

Alex suggested someone take minutes at the next meet up to make my post-meet-up write-up job easier, which may have been helpful this time but I think the night went: beers, food, beers, jokes, Elyse sucks at math, beers, laughter, boobs, beers, pictures, beers, America the Beautiful references every 15 minutes, beers.

There was a rumor of a suggestion to steal my camera to take obscene pictures that was voted down for fear of offending me. The only thing I’m upset about is that now I have no obscene pics to post (except Gerg’s finger which you can see after the fold.):

I must apologize again to anyone whose reality was completely shattered upon the realization that I am, in fact, not a cartoon in real life. The cartoon is only my online persona.

It was a great time! I’m going to have to write more later because I’m working on VERY little sleep… I didn’t get to bed until 7:30am and right now the whole night is sort of a blur. The good news is that, although I suck at math, I apparently ROCK at field sobriety because I TOTALLY nailed that test at 3am.

    People were skeptical about your boobs? They must be particularly unbelievable!

    PICS!

    of my BOOBS???

    actually, it was discussed and they are too big to fit into one photo.

    The ones not of my boobs are one their way.

  3. What do you mean no ghost activity in that photo? I see some obvious ectoplasmic mist there at the bottom.

    Wait a minute! Are those noodly appendages…?

    Hold me. I’m scared. (shivers)

  4. Elyse: I seem to remember YOU’RE the one who brought up the topic of your boobs (or single boob) first. And give us some credit for coming back to your boobs for different reasons each time: breast feeding, weirdos dry-humping strangers on the subway, solar powered bras, etc. To make you feel better next month we can talk about my man-boobs all you want.

    FYI: No one’s going to have to buy the Skepchick calendar if you keep showing off your one-boob picture to everyone who shows up for meet-ups!

  5. Gerg:

    I was NOT the one who brought my boobs up! I was talking about Jodie’s boobs! Louise was the one talking about my boobs.

    And oh yes, I forgot about the leg humping… man, that was hot!

    Cygore:

    Wait! When did you take a video?! How incriminating is it? Do you have proof that Louise started the boob talk?

  6. OK. My Bad. The long and short of it all is that boobs were the theme of the evening…mostly yours. Next time we’ll have an Elyse’s boobs/America The Beautiful “swear jar” to discourage such topics.

    On another note I am curious to see what reactions we’ll get from others if we finally get around to making some sort of “Skepchick/Friendly Atheist” sign to guide newcomers. We can keep a tally of Catcalls vs evil looks. Whomever comes closest to the real count gets the booby “swear jar” money!
