Skepchick Readers Rock!

I wanted to give major unofficial Monkeys to all the entrants to this month’s contest!  I think this has been our best contest yet! Behind the scenes we are all giddy in anticipation of our Judging Ceremony.

Sunday will be a day of all out irresponsiblity thanks to you, the Skepchick readers.  You are all made of awesome!

And just remember, this month there are no losers.  Each and every entry has contributed new opportunities for the drunken shenanigans essential to Skepchickism.  You are all winners*.

*winners of our appreciation.  There will still only be one official winner receiving a Surly Ramics necklace.

  1. I took one for the team last night during our test-run Skype session. Made 6 drinks on the list, I did. (I’m not telling which ones…)

    Then I taste-tested 5 of them. Then I forgot to test the last one, since the first five worked so well.

    Then I was late to work this morning.

    The things I do for you people, I’ll tell ya.

  2. Oh man, I missed it. Drinks are my specialty…well, at least drinking is.

    By the way, any idea why my avatar isn’t showing? It’s working on the gravatar.com test-check.

  3. If these drinks make me lose my clothing for no apparent reason…well, I’d better not have the camera on, that’s for sure.

    Sunday will be a greeeeat day.

  4. I disagree completely. You should very much have the camera on. I need to test my hypothesis that since all skepchicks are super-sexy while dressed, and all observed partially-nude and nude skepchicks are super-sexy, that all skepchicks are super-sexy in all states of dress and undress…


  5. It’s FOR SCIENCE!

    It can’t be science without a hypothesis, an experiment and an observation. We’ve got two of the three now. Let the cameras roll!

  6. @Rystefn:

    We totally test that hypothesis every time we have a Skepchick planning/pillow fight on a trampoline meeting. And yes, we are the sexiest girls on the web.

  7. Whoa! Sausage pizza! Say no more! Nudge, nudge, grin, grin, wink, wink, know what I mean? A nod’s as good as a wink to a blind bat!

  8. Do you need a control group for the drink recipe testing? Just in case you’re biased or something? I don’t know why you would be, but it seems like a good excuse to say, “I have to spend the weekend drinking, it’s for science!
