Well, we have now hit Week 1 since the Lunchtime Science Experiment/Betting Opportunity was first proposed. If we can’t get a second remote in the next two days, it’ll have to be pushed back two weeks due to my vacation. I cry conspiracy!
As for the vacation itself, it begins as soon as I leave work on Friday. For those of you who have expressed curiosity about the schedule, it is as follows:
I arrive in London on Saturday, and am proceeding directly to the bar (of course!). European skeptics (or very, very determined skeptics from other continents) can meet me at 2pm at the King & Queen Pub (info here). At this point, we will have at least a dozen or so people, possibly many more. And, of course, many many more once the soccer game starts. Er, “football.” Don’t yell at me.
Not only will I be there, but you can also meet Skepchick Teek, aka Ms. January from the 2006 calendar.
Speaking of Teek, she will be helping out with the blog while I’m gone. Joining her will be Bug_Girl, AKA Ms. June! These two spectacularly intelligent skepchicks will write daily entries for the two weeks that I’ll be tooling around the UK and France. I look forward to reading their stuff, and only hope that they aren’t so fabulous that you all boo me when I return.
I’m also going to have a third skepchick take over for the Sunday Night Sermon: Skepchic. I haven’t actually told her privately yet, but I figure this will have to do until I can get home to my e-mail. She has her own blog, and it’s faboo.
Just to satisfy your craving for skepticism fun, check out this video from our friends the Scientologists! Please post your snarky comments here. I’ll pick my favorite and the winner will receive a personal hug from me (note: winner must show up to the London pub to receive present).
