IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER

In no particular order.....

Big Brother 10 has a double elimination tonight! (Yes, I hate to admit it, I am hooked on this show. It's often vulgar, seems to bring out the worst in some people and taps into the kind of social networking skills guys like me struggle to acquire....but it's also completely compelling, a convoluted, ever-changing version of the Prisoner's Dilemma. How can I not watch?)

As previously mentioned, the Heretic's Barbecue on Sunday, September 7th. The event itself will begin at 10:00 in the morning and run through the late afternoon. Ironically, I'll be coming from church services, so I probably won't join my fellow skeptics until around noon, but I would encourage anyone interested in supporting CVASS to attend.

Cafe Scientifique is starting up again, and this time it's my colleague Madhusudan Khatti with a presentation on the evolutionary ecology of city life. You can catch this event beginning at 6:30 Monday evening, September 8th at:

North India Bar and Grill
80 W Shaw
Clovis, CA 93612
1-559-325-7788

And, finally, last but not least: only 322 days (July 17, 2009) until HP6.

Color me a BB fanatic! It feels rather shameful when I watch but I find it a unqiue sociological experiment gone amuck. I think that Dan is playing it as well as any I've seen. He really knows how to work his boyish charm while seeming so benign. Yup, can't wait for tonight's double elim. Lucky me, I'll know 3 hours before you!!!! (insert evil laugh here...)

I tried to watch Big Brother once, but didn't last for fifteen minutes. Short attention span.

I've also never managed to sit through more than ten minutes of American Idol. All they did was sing. And they sang songs I didn't like. Blah.
