Rambly post about gratitude and praise

My life is weird. During college, I made a name for myself with a style of activism that mixed fucking with people with serious rebuttals.  It worked for me and I had fun (I give a talk about it here). Now I’m kinda grown up, no matter how much I fight it (and boy, do [Read More...]

I'm on a bumper

And didn’t even have to get hit. Although, if you spread this around, the word is “contend” not “contest.” Thanks to Karen for sending this in.  [Read more...]

God wanted you in the middle seat

I have a curse: I cannot be scheduled for a flight and then have that flight run on time (the lone exception is Southwest, those guys rule).  Ask anybody who has ever expected a flight of mine to arrive on time. Last night my flight back from Lake Hypatia (which freaking rocked) was supposed to [Read More...]

Campers read my blog

Several of the campers at Camp Quest Ohio told me that they read my blog.  I guess I should tone it down on my use of the f word. Perhaps I could replace it with ass, god damn, motherfucker, shit, or something equally colorful. Seriously, the kids at that camp are bright enough to make [Read More...]

Happy Father's day to the best dad ever

I have the best ever.  He is wise, and he busted his ass to give my mother, my brother, and myself a good life.  He has supported me in everything I’ve ever wanted to do and been patient when I fucked up (which was often). I recall one of the many times I and our [Read More...]

Talk atheisty to me…

A friend of mine has been visiting her deeply conservative family in Florida for the last week.  She texted me the other night to make sure I was still picking her up from the airport. My responses come from the fact that I spent all of yesterday answering texts with my magic 8-ball. Friend:  You’re [Read More...]

Death threat #10

Back when Skepticon was getting on its feet, I received nine death threats over the space of two years.  One of them actually made the threat by showing up on my front porch.  Anyway, I decided then that when I hit my tenth death threat I would throw a huge party.  I was certain that [Read More...]

I get mail

I get things in the mail.  Usually it’s a Christian pamphlet of some kind or a copy of The Case for Whatthefuckever by Lee Strobel.  One time received a book on how to tie people up.  This was convenient in that it was less boring and more informative than Fifty Shades of Grey and also [Read More...]

The best place (Blogathon 49/49)

We did good today everybody.  We raised a lot of money for a great cause. I’ll finish with a bit I love about working at the SSA: they treat you like a human being.  “Oh, you’re sick?  Why are you coming to work?  Stay home and take care of yourself!”  In every other job I’ve [Read More...]

Proving Love (Blogathon 36/49)

Michaelyn here! Want to ask me a question? Go here. Bill Krueger asks: Do you find answering the question “Prove that you love [insert name here]” difficult? Please note, I’m an atheist so I hope you don’t consider this a baited question. When people find out I’m an atheist, they often ask, “Do you believe [Read More...]
