First of all, I’m going to be traveling to see my family this weekend in beautiful South Jersey! I’ll be picnicking on Friday (Independence Day for you non-Americans), but Saturday I’m free. I thought that afternoon might be a fun time to meet up with area skeptics at a restaurant in Philly. I was going to suggest a restaurant I went to last time I was there, but I can’t even think of the name of it (near Macy’s, lots of signs on the wall from defunct local department stores). Anyway, if any locals are interested, please post to the comments and maybe suggest a place that would be quiet-ish on a Saturday afternoon. If there’s enough interest, we’ll set a time and place.
UPDATE: Saturday July 5, 11am-ish, Eulogy, RSVP in thread for head count!
Second of all, thanks to all the teens who wrote in about Teen Skepchick! I didn’t have time to respond to any of you yet, because I spent the weekend trying and failing to get the new blog up and running. (I’ll be trying and hopefully not failing again tonight!) I’ll be getting in touch with you all soon.
Third of all, many people approached me and my fellow Skepchicks at The Amaz!ng Meeting asking about our necklaces. Those were custom made for us by Amy of Surlyramics! As you may have noticed in person, her jewelry is eye-catching, clever, and pro-science. Visit her Etsy site to order one (or more) of your own! Holy crap I just noticed this rocket ship necklace, which someone needs to buy right now. Seriously, right now.
