Get down with the sickness

Sarah introduced me to a new app called Patient Zero (once more, iPeople need to get their own link). How it works: you create a virus with a customized name and set of attributes.  You then infect anybody else playing the game who comes within range.  The exception is if the person in range is [Read More...]

This shall be the best of all days!

This morning’s bowl of Raisin Bran has SO MANY RAISINS! This is going to be the best day ever.  [Read more...]

Ok, ok, I'm not *really* becoming a musician

Ok, I’m not leaving atheism in order to become a Christian rock singer.  Yesterday was April Fools Day.  I had spent the previous three days doing set up for Greta’s April 1 post on twitter.  I was talking about how much I miss singing, about how hard it is to make money as a singer, [Read More...]

Thank you to the American Atheists crowd

At the American Atheists conference I was scheduled to speak at the costume dinner (which had a price tag of $200 $50 to get in, I believe).  All day on twitter people were wondering if people who didn’t pay for the dinner could get in to see my talk.  Dave Silverman, who freaking rules, saw [Read More...]

What a day! Start of day 2 of the greatest adventure!

Yesterday was wonderful.  Pennsylvania is gorgeous (possibly more so because we were using Ohio as a basis for comparison). Late last night we finally arrived Hagerstown, MA where we’re denning up for the night.  Immediately Conan the Bar-Bear-ian started jumping up and down on the bed like a child. I swear we can’t take that [Read More...]

On tattoos.

Christina here. I have tattoos. I enjoy them – to me, my skin is a canvas. Sure, I have to live my skin my entire life – but that does not prevent me from scarring it accidentally, and does not prevent the changes to it that come with age. To that end, I may as [Read More...]

How to be wrong.

Christina here… Back in January, I listened to a This American Life podcast called “Mr. Daisy and the Apple Factory” which was based on the monologue The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs by Mr. Mike Daisy, who traveled to China to observe working conditions at the factories which produce Apple products.
