Great fun over the weekend - I am sure great stories will follow.  As a brief teaser though, led my the intrepid richardhughes, Professor Darwin was rescued from the clutches of the evil Dr. Demski's vise, Professor Steve-Steve got to share a pint with Professor Darwin, and visit with some relatives at the Field Museum, although they didn't have a lot to say.   Professor Steve-Steve also met a couple of crazy cats that wanted to get to know him a lot better.

ATBC regulars RichardHuges, Kristine and J-Dog welcomed Nomad, Mrs. J-Dog and Erin too.

The Darwin Exhibit tour took just a little bit less than the Beagle voyage, so the ATBCers rewarded Professors Darwin and Steve-Steve with dinner and drinks, where a smashing-good time was had by all.

Kristine - Watch out Kristine - I see a trend developing here!  Since they were both Englishmen, who's next?  Austin Powers?  

I think ID predicts that the English are cleverly trying to take back their colonies by converting all Rebels to Crown Loyalists, so be careful you don't get swept up in their strategy!

Remember:  Just cuz they ar more intelligent, better looking and talk prettier than us Americans, don't make them better than us!

If people are wondering where I am and why I'm not reply to e-mails/looking at photos, I just got home about a half hour ago - I took Monday off to have more time.

Rich&Rich kissed the same cheek, mind you. :)

My right cheek is available - the next bloke will be an American, I hope...

Professor Steve Steve is quite the gentleman himself. ;)

I just IM'd you, but the problem seems to be that Kristine is now all loopy, instead of all sciency.  You shouldn't have talked to her with your damned English accent.  

She's going to have to hear the usual MN "you betchya" @ 100 more times, before she's back to normal I think.

Of course!

But you're not against Ecuadorans, are you? (They're Americans too, you know.)

My right cheek is the one Luis kissed on the Santa Cruz in the Galapagos. :) Sorry, it isn't virginal...

What do you mean by loopy, J-Dog?

He captured great detail on Professor Steve-Steve and his new best friend.

Where you been, Number 2 Pleasurian Husband? If I knew where you went at night, I would have left a light on in the (plane) winder.

Well, we would have invited you, BUT we already had a token Brit...  just kidding - you could have flown over.  

Well, at least you get to visit the Real Darwin's Estate, not a mock-up of it.  

And anytime you want to fly over, I'll buy you a beer.

Hell of a deal for you !  

HOWEVER - WRITE THIS DOWN:  LUCY WILL BE VISITING CHICAGO IN FEB 2009.  

If you book now on BOAC, they'll give you a pound off the regular fare.  I'll take the beer out of the fridge now, so it will be nice and warm by 2009, just the way you English like them.  

See you then.

Not sure, J Dog. It's up to Reed, I guess. Did you send Steve + Guest back?

I'd like to do a Prof. Steve Steve post based on the chicago trip, but I'm going to need y'all to write one up.  Just send it to me as a text file with HTML formatting and I'll edit it from there.  When you want images placed in the text just make a not of which ones to use from the gallery and I'll handle resizing them and uploading them to PT's server.

Also I haven't decided what we're going to to with PSS after the Chicago trip.  One possibility is that he could go visit several of the more active members on this forum.

What do people think?

We could send him on to Wes... he's not too far away?

I think Kristine squirrel brain should start the write up. I take it the prose should be in first person panda?

It would be nice for Prof. Steve Steve to visit the Devolab here at MSU. Rob Pennock won't be back until after about the 20th, so there's no rush.

If Prof Steve Came to England (great title for a book!) I'm sure we could take him to Down and/or the Natural History Museum. I'm equally sure a journal of the wonders of natural history he observed could be recorded. Possibly even in the style of Darwin's Beagle diaries.

Just a thought.

Darwin's Home or MSU?  I dare to dream big, and I say why not both?

I have been maintaining Prof Steve and his new bestest friend Prof Darwin, rescued my the Interpid ATBC crew fromn a the Crule, hearless and mnindless Evil Dr. Dr.'s Vise Strategy, but I must admit, I'm ready to pass them on.  

Prof Steve insists on only eating bamboo -  soaked and served in 40 year-old single-malt Scotch.

Prof Darwin, his new best friend and drinking-buddy, sings out loud all night long, well, attempts to sing anyway, crude English drinking songs, which he says he picked up a tatste for on his epic voyage.  He also insists on spending every waking moment looking for "Ltlle Lost Island Girls" wearing grass skirts, and then making sounds like lawn mower.

They are waaay too much the party animals for me - Time to send them on a 5 year voyage of discovery.  And, no, that does NOT mean Seattle.

We just found another picture of the recent ATBC Chicago Meet-up - including a "richardhughes" photo.  I was going to send a link to FTK on her blog, but oh.  wait - she'll just have to be satisfied with this sexy-hawt shot.

And for all of you other ATBC guys out there.   Yeah.  Angie IS that hot in person.   And she LOVES Darwin.



edited:  Sorry about the picture being so damn small.  I couldn't figure out how to make it bigger.

Okay-doke, with my help Prof. Steve Steve just sent his write-up to Reed.

He can't type. So he didn't. I can. It's nice to reward people. And I like Guinness, properly poured.

I'm just saying. :)
