My time has come!

Now is the moment we’ve been waiting for, my lovelies!  Castle Pharyngula has been unwittingly left empty and without guard!

I’m about to fly off to the Imagine No Religion 2 conference (hashtag: #INR2), and my daughter Skatje is on her way to the Women in Secularism (hashtag: #WISCFI) conference — there’s lots happening this weekend. It seems like the FtB contribution is split: Maryam, Ian, Natalie, Matt and I will be in Kamloops, while Ophelia, Jen, Stephanie, Sikivu, and Brianne will be in DC.

Now is the time for our assault!  By tomorrow PZ’s throne will be mine!

And what’s this?  The rest of FtB is off conferencing about?  Splendid!  I get free reign over the FtB mansion for a whole weekend!  After the takeover of Pharyngula will be my time to have the FtB hot tub all to myself and to root through all of Jen’s cupboards and drawers looking for things to blog about!  Muahahahahahaha!

I’ll probably look through Ian’s underwear drawer too.  This is what they get for jetting off to have fun and leaving me to hold down the fort.

    How are you going to get the kraken out of the hot tub? Men have died trying. Lesser men, to be sure, but still…

      A more compelling question is how is the kraken going to get JT out of the hot tub?

      Four words: those aren’t spa bubbles.

  • Tony

    You keep the delicious vanilla/caramel flavored Rum in the hot tub? It tastes great on the rocks, but I’m not certain it would be good heated…

  • Brianne Bilyeu

    Wait a minute. We have a HOT TUB and y’all didn’t tell me???

  • Reginald Selkirk

    Bad news: PZ’s karaoke machine is loaded only with cephalopod-related songs.

  • Crommunist

    Aww, that’s adorable. JT thinks I wear underwear…

    • Stephanie Zvan

      Well, no. That’s why he wants to know what you keep in your “underwear drawer”.

  • Cunning Pam

    Just watch out for the attack otters at Ian’s place. You might want to bring a few herring to distract them.

    • skepticallydenpa

      I think you are referring to his kung-fu dugongs…

      No worries. If you can overtake them they will become your loyal servants. I suggest starting there to increase our numbers.

    Seriously into the TMI phase of the party.

    Imagine opening the larder at Castle Pharyngula and seeing all the smoked babies hanging there like plump little hams.

    Mind the Trophy Wife, though. She’ll beat you about the head and ears with her selection of Monday Metazoans.

    The FtB’s should have a minecraft server so you can actually assault Castle Pharyngula. That would rock.

        Server I’m on now has a ton of mods installed, redpower industrialcraft mystcraft. We almost went with Mo Creatures since they went multiplayer, so we could have an inter-dimensional pirate with a chainsaw and laser riding a Pegasus through portals to other worlds….why ISN’T there a FtB minecraft server?
        This seems like a problem needing correcting.

    Remember to take a bunch of felines with you … all ages and breeds. PZ needs to learn about truly cuddly pets.
