Hey, who’s going to be in New York this weekend? ME, that’s who!
I’m very excited to attend NECSS, and I hope to see a lot of you there. The fun starts tonight at Drinking Skeptically, which I’m hoping to join as soon as my bus gets in around 10pm. The conference will go on all day tomorrow, and then you’ll all be able to go and get a bite to eat, and then start the partying.
Because I’m having dinner in Hell’s Kitchen, I’d like to continue to drink around there. So, how about The Pony Bar? I’m amenable to moving around, and so if you want to hang out with me at any point but can’t find me, check my Twitter feed. I’ll try to keep it up to date.
Sunday afternoon, there’s a brunch hosted by the Jolly Thirteen Club! I’m going to try to make it there, and so you should, too.
Other things going on this weekend? Post in the comments!
Okay, onto Comment o’ the Week!
Due to certain Dragon*Connery happening last week, I was sadly unable to post a Comment o’ the Week. The tragedy! I apologize profusely (but I’d do it again in a heartbeat).
This week, then, I’m faced with an overwhelming amount of quality nominations.* Plus, there was an entire thread that really deserves it. That thread is under Sam’s post about the Chupacabras: So Sad When Superstars Get Old.
Since there were so many worthy posts, including (as Briarking noted), the first four, I’m going to reach into my hat and choose one at random. The winner is…

So waitâ€¦ is Larry Bird the Chupacapra?
On a side note, TeamBanzai won before, the day I first saw Carl Zimmer speak. Carl is speaking TOMORROW at NECSS! Coincidence??? Of course not.
