What do you get when you mix….

… (L-R) Scienceblogs’ own rabblerouser, PZ Myers; Phil Plait of Bad Astronomy; myself; and birthday boy Evil Monkey, along with a host of other science bloggers and readers (including some self-identified in the comments in PZ’s and Phil’s posts)? A nerdalicious Saturday evening in DC, that’s what. We arrived a bit late and so missed some of the festivities, but I did get to chat with both PZ and Phil a bit, and hear some stories about Phil’s upcoming book. I did not, however, get the memo on the dress code, and sadly left my blue button-up-over-a-T-shirt-sporting-a-button combo back here in Iowa. D’oh!

So, I’m once again playing catch-up, and my “real” work and family come first, but there will be new material tomorrow. Any comments that were sent to the spam folder have also been published.

    Thanks for updatating us – it looks like a lot of work, mixed with a little fun. I have to ask though – why the baseballs in the background?

    We met up at a sports bar ‘n’ grill in the Holiday Inn, I think it was.

    Yeah, because although we locals suggested lots of places with good atmosphere and locally-brewed beer, PZ and Phil decided to be lazy and have the meetup in the hotel where they were staying.
