God, I love this blog

Thanks to all of the Skepchick bloggers, readers, and especially all of you who take the time to comment. You are all the greatest! I know we sometimes get a little riled up in the discussions, but then we kiss and make up. That’s what makes this blog so terrific. I hope that some of you who read and lurk will work up the nerve to say “hi” and join in the conversations. I promise none of us bite (unless you ask us to).

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. Just promise to be careful when we hug. With those huge balls of hers, Teek might snap me like a twig!

    P.S. And now if I say “bite me!” dd, you’ll never know what I mean! ;)

  2. Oh my, SteveT, I hadn’t thought of that. Blush.

    Thx, joemg7777. I hate when people say I’m one of their favorite blogger though. You know, performance anxiety and all. :-)

  3. Hey, if we’re going to do this group hug thing, I want you all to bring it. I hate a half-assed, bend at the waiste, pat the back lightly, half hug. Let’s go in with full-frontal clampage.

  4. And thanks to all of you for making it such an awesome blog. I would have commented on this earlier but then Sam made me think about full-frontal clampage with the skepchicks and it took me a moment to regain composure.

  5. Well, what do you know, this blog finally made me want to throw up!

    I mean really, cutsie kittens and group hugs? I can only pray to the FSM that the profanity and sexual references return post haste, thus restoring the balance of the universe.

  6. I looked up Hilter and I can totally see how evolution could lead to it, but it doesn’t seem particularly threatening to me :) . But really, I’m just here because I want in on this sweet group hug action!

  7. I mean really, cutsie kittens and group hugs? I can only pray to the FSM that the profanity and sexual references return post haste

    See, now, and I don’t see any of those thing as being mutually exclusive.

    Now gimme a fuckin’ hug, you kitten-lover.

  8. TheCzech: ” I mean really, cutsie kittens and group hugs? I can only pray to the FSM that the profanity and sexual references return post haste.”

    OK I wanted to mention balls, boobs, coping feels and which skepchick bites… but I knew, being a man, that I’d just be MISUNDERSTOOD!!!

  9. Man o man…”nom” and “Hilter” and side hugs and “full-frontal clampage” – I’m so out of the loop I’m in a pool.

    See what I did there? Took “loop” and reversed the direction and made “pool”, thus drawing the image of me, far from the included group, in a pool. Drowning, you might say.

    *sigh* Ah well, thanks for keeping a great blog.

  10. How wonderful is this? I think some other blogs should consider a group hug thread just to see what happens. (Can you imagine this happening ANYWHERE on SciBlogs?)

    Anyway, hugs for all!

  11. go go gadget hugging arms! *vrrrrrrrrt* *clump*


    *vrching* *vrrrrt*

    ok…i’m done inventing onomatopoeic words for robotic arm hugging sound effects.

    you’re all fabulous.

  12. I am not really much of a hugger in my non-cyber life, but I do so enjoy this blog, so just call me a tree hugger!

    (I also wanted to try to be number 42. :))

  13. So let’s review… We’ve got group hugs, much love, a few well-placed noms and other biting references, “full-frontal clampage” and a naked Teek.

    I’d like to second the title of this entry.

  14. Perhaps there needs to be a “group hug” shot in the next Skepchick calendar?

    And, believe it or not, I keep coming back here for more than just the gratuitous talk of nudity. Thanks for being insightful and entertaining.

  15. I hereby undertake to never try to lift the tone of a thread on Skepchick again. Consider me chastised.

    OK, just a little more chastising, please? *wink*
