Yesterday, I was minding my own beeswax and suddenly Gmail was all, “Skepchicks! You got mail, yo!”
And what sweet mail it was! Here were the contents, in their entirety:

Wow! Those are some big name skeptics! Probably two of the biggest names in Chicago (besides like Julia Sweeney and Roger Ebert)! Speaking at Skepchicamp!
Know who else is coming? Jen, Surly Amy, Carr2D2 and even Bug Girl!
You know how hardcore Skepchick this Skepchicamp is? Our corporate sponsor is SurlyRamics! That’s kickin’ it real as it gets, yo! If you’re not involved in this shizzle, you need to be!
If you want to get involved, contact me at [email protected]!
More information coming soon!
Crap! I’m running out of exclamation points!
Mehta’s blog is a must for the American Atheist community.
I really need to decide on my topic. I have too many ideas! Ahh!
Oh, Elyse, we may have to return to the North a little early next year – this seems like a must attend event!
You have a corporate sponsor? What a bunch of sellouts!!
You guys are SO in the pocket of BigJewelry!
Next year we anticipate being sponsored by DeBeers.
No way! Sounds great, I might just have to go!
I am SO looking forward to this event and proud to be an official sponsor! My plan to take over the world by infiltrating skeptic events is totally in full swing now. Mwa ha ha ha!
Holy crap, Elyse, how many more people can we fit in that little room? And what else will we find for them to do?
Don’t get me wrong; I’m super excited about it and everything, but jeez.
Feel free to suggest topics for me to discuss! (cause, I have no clue right now….)
@bug_girl: Elyse seems to think you’re discussing bird penises. I’ve even pondered adding it to the speakers list as your topic.
So, bird penises, then?
Yeah! A talk called Cock cock who’s there?!!
