Skepchick Sundaylies! Dolce and Gabbana vs Elton John, DNA Painting, Teaching, Quack of the Month, Meghan Trainer, ChiFi Photos AND Bonus Surly Amy Talk Show Video

Mindy can’t come to the Sundaylies today because she is in the middle of a bare knuckle boxing fight with a chap who dared to say that the X-Files shouldn’t come back to FOX. The truth is out there.

What this means is… Mwah hahahaha! THIS HERE BLOG, er, I mean this here blog POST IS ALLLLLLLLLL MINE NOW! MWAH HAHAHA!

Since I somehow got to sneak into the back channel and do Mindy’s post I’m gonna add in a bonus video of me on a live talk show yesterday.

It’s called, LA Talk Live and the segment was produced by the Blk Grrrl Show. I am the second guest. I talk about this blog, my art, why Patreon is great for less privileged people who want to produce creative content AND why I still love to learn about science!

My segment starts at around the 30 minute mark.
