Thanks! I hung out with Darwin while on a school trip throughout Europe. I was lucky enough to take a stop at the British Natural History Museum.

Yeah, she was certainly raised Catholic.

Have seen Kathy two or three times. It's been over a year since she's come here to Columbus, though, and I'm getting withdrawal pains. Envious of your seats!

Man! Serious Kathy Griffin fan!

I was playing some silly TV trivia game on Facebook and someone had written a question about Kathy which suggested she was a Catholic (rather than an atheist) and I was really miffed. (I reported it as an erroneous question, though it remains.)

But then again, I'm the sort who strikes out in the goofy places I inhabit. Like giving back the Gideon bible at every hotel I visit.

Yes -- it was thought (by a very small number of contributors) to be an attempt either to evoke religion or even to mislead. I too cited the subtitle as plenty clarifying. But again, most (including Dawkins and Dan Barker) liked it as much as I did.

Thanks Ken! I'm always tickled to hear that the PBB cover hit someone right. It was the publisher's design, not mine, but I instantly loved it for the complex overlap of meanings. Most of the contributors to the book also liked it, but a few HATED it INTENSELY. Fortunately it was too late.

I have two cats, Lidja (7) and Tycho (4), which is about all our tiny flat can take, I think. I like a lot of the lolcats I've seen, but I haven't scouted any out or anything. :) I get plenty of lols watching Tycho at times, though!

Nope-- my friends might, though. I'm pretty new at Olaf, fresh out of my old college. Kinda cool, though, that. I love having all these little connections there (I actually couldn't help but run into someone from my hometown every corner I turned; I guess we have a disproportionate amount of students there, compared to the rest of the state).

Oh ya...Sedona and the New Agers. Good band name if nothing else. Love the magic rocks and dream catchers, there's just nothing like having your Chaukras aligned...err..whatever they do with it.

I'm relieved to hear of your Cholla relocation experience, I know all about being impaled after my scuffle. You'd think the birds would know better by now however. If she comes back you might want to call baby-birdy services and have them look into her parenting skills.

Stupid Monkey!

I'm sorry you must have me confused with another wholesome Hoosier girl, I graduated from wholesome in 83. I lived in Sedona for a year and made a few canyon runs to CC for the jalapeño beer back before it went national.

But after I lost a scuffle with a jumping Cholla, I had to remove myself from anymore potential damage and move away from harmful plants.

Hey is that my Pigeon?

They are and they aren't, if you know what I mean. I am the only atheist in my entire family, which is kind of a pain, but at least no one makes me wear a scarlet letter, or anything. I have found that religion definitely has a strong hold here.

Hey Ken, thanks for your comment. Maybe not as interesting as it could be. I lived in Idaho Falls as a kid, where there's also an enormous Mormon influence. After living in California for 30+ years, I needed a place where the cost of living was less but where I would be able to find a job in my industry (medical device/biotech). Salt Lake City is one of those places. I do find that I'm something of a stranger in a strange land. It's kind of an interesting cultural experiment for me. I look like everyone else here, but I certainly do not have the same experiences and background, and they have all this jargon and terminology that I don't understand. It really is interesting.

The good thing is, the people are generally very friendly, and also very civic-minded. I like those things very much

(Oops, 2 comments for the price of 1...) Not a movie buff per se, just looking for a clever webonym - may or may not have succeeded. ;) Great to find another Bizarro fan, too!!

Beautiful bird...is that a kestrel or a hawk?

Oh hai thar. Thanks for the welcome! Yes, Ceiling Cat is an acceptable deity to us, as is FSM. Thanks for sponsoring the GSA. LGBT youth need all of the support they can get.

I was at SF Pride on the 29th. You can find pics and videos on my blog. Who knows, maybe I saw your daughter at one point.

I love the photo of the monkey with the dove, and your cat is adorable.

Thank god for the internet, then :P

Seriously, this place is addictive, though. It's simply lovely.

Your name caught me off-guard for a minute. Have you ever lived in Tennessee?

Chicago's okay. I've lived here my whole life so it's home for the most part. I miss being able to take the L downtown and just wander around all day like I did in high school. Kind of hard to do with 4 kids.
My husband is a non-believer, too, so it hasn't been an issue. We live with my dad (in the house I grew up in) and he's agnostic. Religion is rarely discussed in our house other then questions the kids bring home from their Catholic school (long story). We're trying to raise the kids to be freethinkers and so far have 1 believer, 1 non-believer and 2 that have no clue. They still have time to sort it all out, though.
