Hey all,

Saw J-dog's mention of the trip over at Aetiology.  I live not too far from Chicago, and I'll be there Aug 2-5 to talk science blogging at YearlyKos...can someone keep me updated about what you decide?  I've been wanting to go see the exhibit anyway...

I was going to buy PZ dinner untill you stole his gig!

GrrRrrr.

If you meet PZ you'll have to tell me if he really has horns and carries a ptchfork like all the IDers say.

Of course. We'll both be eating babies.

I hear he prefers to greeted with "We salute you, oh Dark Lord".

Heh! I just say, "Wassup?" :)

Hell, maybe PZ will come! Did anyone mention it at Pharyng?

Tara - That would be unbelievably cool, just two small town ex-Toledoans visiting in the Big City.   This is beginning to sound like a Disney plot...City Mouse and Country Mouse.  Looking at the bright side though, no Lindsey Lohan, and I am willing to bet that the Field Museum, and the Darwin Exhibit will be a lot more fun for you than your recent trip to Flintstone Land.

ex-Toledoans?!?!?!?! =B^O

I grew up on the South side, near Heatherdowns and Byrne - went to St. Francis de Sales.  

I can't do first weekend in August, though, we'll be in Boston visiting Daughter #1.

I cannot do the second weekend (August 11) - I just remembered that I've agreed to perform (I heard that ;) ) for the Farmer's Market. But that's the only bad time.

fusilier - I grew up in the Old West End, and my parent's moved to Byrne & Heatherdowns area when I was in college - where I helped out on an "emergency dig" at Fort Meigs ... nothing like digging up old (1812) burials in a cold rain.  Ah yes, the good old days.  We had a house on Glenwood, and Tara had or has a house on Scotwood.

I had an uncle and cousins that lived on the South Side.

Years ago dude.  Since then, I have lived in Fort Wayne, Milwaukee, Boston and Chicago.

If the 4th/5th is the date, I'm out - we'll be in Boston, as I mentioned above.

J-Dog and Tara will have to hoist a virtual bottle of Buckeye for me.

"Virtual' since I think they stopped making that stuff during Nixon's second election campaign, when Ohio dropped  the 3.2% rule for 18-20 year-olds.

Fusilier -  Thanks for the Buckeye memory - I went through college with that 3.2% crap...

re:  Date Of Meet - IMO, it is RICHARD HUGHEScall, as he is the one that suggested it originally.  I was only giving mypreferred dates, so I'm thinking we need to wait for the Prime Mover to give the Prime Directive, right?

No, no, no!  It was YOUR idea, please consider me just a follower in this situation.  Don't make me declare an "Un-Revolution" and make you Brits take back the country....

For those interested:

There is a group in northern Illinois called Darwin’s Bulldogs.  You may learn a little about them at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/darwins_bulldogs/

They are organizing a trip to the Field museum on the morning of 7/28.  Anyone interested may contact Matt at lowryclan@yahoo.com

Anyone interested in joining this pro-science group may also contact Matt for information.

Looks like I'm flying down, but the only flights back are on Sunday morning - maybe I can take Monday off if necessary, or maybe you want me out of your hair that quick. Just wondering. (Welcome to my car-free life.)

Kristine - I tried to send you a long IM, but got an error msg that your mailbox was full - whats up with that?

I also sent you an email, but it wasn't as detailed, so let me know if/ when you get your IM box cleaned out, or if you just want me/us to send more emails.

We're not actuially talking about clubbing in London, New York or Paris, we're talking about going to a frigging Museum after all!

Excpt for richard... who is teh sexy hot, at least for FTK

You won't be the only lady there - my wife and college-age daughter will be there, AFAIK - And don't forget Tara Smith!

Hughes I thought you were English and in England.

Am I wrong?

Louis

I am English but I live in Chicago, which is a great place to live because it's not in Texas. I can walk to the field museum - I live in a loft downtown.

My in-laws (or they would be if J&I were married) live very close to the Museum of Science and Industry, in Hyde Park. (Unfortunately, they are busy on Saturdays.) Close to the bus on Stony Island Ave and very close to the train. :)
