Donna Druchunas is a freelance technical writer and editor and a knitwear designer. When she's not working, she blogs, studies Lithuanian, reads science and sci-fi books, mouths off on atheist forums, and checks her email every three minutes. (She does that when she's working, too.) Although she loves to chat, she can't keep an IM program open or she'd never get anything else done.

  1. ah nuts. i already ditched work once already this year to see James Randi at the CWA in Boudler(actually ditched three times that week). Its gonna take some fancy foot-work to ditch work AGAIN to go see PZ. would not want to miss this for anything! In case I do, I sure hope you’ll have an follow-up post next week and let us know all about how cool it was!

  2. Somebody needs to smack the author of that email. PZ’s last name is spelled wrong in the second line, then right at the bottom.

    We’re not related, but PZ and I share a last name. People are always sticking a gratuitous “e” into it, and it irks me.

    But good for them for getting him to come speak.

  3. Gotta say that while I find PZ an interesting character and his blogging efforts have been informative and wonderfully pot stirring; he was sadly the most boring speaker at TAM this past June. I know some will cast aspersions in my direction for saying this but his lecture about bat wings had me nodding off. Not sure I’d take time off work to hear him again, especially when reading his blog is so much more entertaining and informative.
