Anyone up for it. We can see the exhibit and then grab some bevvies and a ruby*


It'll be better that the AtBC Seattle / AMWAY get together.

I am up for it, but this is the middle of baseball season, and my son's travel team takes a lot of time.  When we're not playing, we're practicing, so Aug or so would be better for me, but I have to up for meeting a guy with a Tard on his cap.  

Good idea.

Come on people!  What an opportunity- Me & Richard and Chuckie too!  I am sure FTK will stop off on her way to the Flintstone Museum, so things could be real interesting.

Hell, MN is only a 6 hour drive, so anyone that would go all the way to the Galapagos could just shimmy their way here in a matter of minutes.  

And we don't even shoot strangers, like they do in TX.  Of course, you don't want to be caught wearing the "wrong colors" here.  Sign up now, while there is still time, and room on the bus.

All right, all right already! :D I'm going to see if I can go in August. I really, really want to see this exhibition and to meet up with you all!

But neither John nor I drive, so it would probably be the train - because I'm saving up for another trip in September (hmm-mm! not telling). :)

I'm in.  After August 15th would be best for me, but I can swing (SHUT IT!!!) it other times as well.  Middle of July is good now that I think about it.

WRT "colors,"  I suppose I could buy a Peyton Manning jersey for the festivites.

fusilier - Only if that Payton Manning Jersey is in Bear Colors...  

OBTW:  In Chicago, the only correct spelling of Payton is as above, and the number on the jersey has to be 34.

September is full of Weddings, I have a stag weekend in August and I'm speaking for PwC and plan on mooching a weekend off them at the resort, so I'm 50/50 for most weekends.

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.

You can walk to the Field Museum?  Why didn't I know this?  When I missed the METRA last time at 2 am, I should have at least hassled you.  Way better than waiting for the 4:50 to the south side.

Given that it's held on a weekend, and with enough notice, and failure of all the gods [read: managers at work; atheist or not, I have to believe in those guys] to conspire against me, I could likely make it as well.
Would very much enjoy another trip to the Field, and the Darwin exhibit is a great motivator.
Not that an ATBC gathering wouldn't have its own compelling aspects ;-)

Mercy...I’m in.  

[thinking...]

On second thought, I should probably stay as far away from Richardhughes as humanly possible...though maybe he’s as “ugly as a mud fence”.  In that case, maybe I can make it.  God knows I need a vacation...

Richard? Are you there?

The gauntlet has been thrown down. All you need to do is to prove you're better looking than Dave Scot.

Can we send you in, big guy?  :p

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...

Well, I'd like to come, but I'm sort of stuck.

Y'see, JanieBelle, Kate and I are stuck at the mailbox.  We've been waiting for a special package, an autographed picture of someone...

To tell the truth, we can't even remember who, because we've been waiting so long in the wind and rain...

Seems like it was someone important...  definitely female.  I think she mentioned having the picture ready to go, in her glove box, and ...


Is it Christmas yet?  I'm sure it was supposed to be here by Christmas... or JanieBelle's birthday...  hm... is it Valentine's Day yet?  JanieBelle's birthday is Valentine's Day.

Anyways, we can't come.  We're still huddled around the mailbox.

:)

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.

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.

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

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. :)

Since this was your idea, what is the best date and time for you?

Hey all,

I'm not going to be able to make it.  :(  They changed the date of the science caucus from Thursday to Friday, so I'm already going to be spending 2 days in Chicago.  A friend of mine from high school is also finally graduating from college and is throwing a shindig in Ohio on the 4th, and I promised him almost 13 years ago that I'd be there to party at his graduation, so I need to get back for that.  I'm bummed...

Boo - Sorry to see you miss it Tara.  

So to everyone else:  Saturday Afternoon it is?  I think we need to even pin it down more, because, you have to buy time-stamped tickets - at least that's what happened when I saw the Pompeii exhibit last year...

I will try and do some more digging tomrrow morning and post to confirm this.  If anybody has any preferences or comments about times on Sat afternoon, please post ASAP!

This could be a lot of fun, I am looking forward to it, and especially Richard's English Pub.  Actually, I've already seen an old guy in a beard, so maybe just go to the Pub?

Nah.  Kidding.

Ok - I will send mine via PM also to you and Richard.  It looks like Saturday afternoon is best, so now we have to agree on a time.

This link is to Tickets for Museum and Darwin admission:

http://purchase.tickets.com/buy/TicketPurchase

The fine print says there is a $1.50 surcharge for ordering online and picking up at the Will-Call booth.

Entry times are on the Hour and 1/2 hour, so if we can pin this down, we can all see the exhibit at the same time, more or less.  The Pompeii experience was not good - it was too crowded, so I hope the Flintstone Museum siphons off most of the crowd on Saturday, and we can dance and play in a cavernous hall.

Kristine has spoken and the word is 2:00.

Be there, or be square.

Please send all complaints to DaveScot Springer c/o UD.

Your complaint will be given the full attention it deserves.

I just purchased my tix (tick?). But I'm thinking that we should meet at 1:30 or so, since 2:00 means actually walking into the exhibition at 2:00, and not yakking? (We did that to our patrons with the Egyptian exhibit. Hup-two-three-four, get 'em in and out the door...) :)

Or we could meet for lunch and tie one on before we even go in (I'm kidding).

Yes, 1:30 meet time is good - By Main entrance?  I'll be wearing a flower in my hair.  No.  That's not right, I'll be wearing a Yankees baseball cap instead.  And we have the cell phone numbers so that will help.

We might even be earlier, and see some of the other stuff - I could walk around there all day and night, if they'd let me.

Would a humble lurker who just happens to be Chicago adjacent be allowed to join in on this event?
I swear I'm not an undercover fundie.. and if I was I sure as hell wouldn't ask to go to the Darwin exhibit with you lot.. that'd be like going into the lion's den accompanied by the lions..

Anyway I've been looking for an excuse to hit one of the Chicago museums, and this would make a pretty decent excuse.  I can offer to contribute photography of the event, recording the moment forever so it can be savored by posterity.  Or just splashed casually about the forums, as you wish.

Nomad - Absolutely come - The more the merrier.  

BTW - I don't worry about undercover fundies - my wife is one -and she'll be there.  However, unlike FTK and others, she doesn't bother me, and I don't bother her about it, so everything works out just fine.  

If you are a photog - double-good - I understand Professor Steve-Steve The Panda might be in attendance, and he is quite the attention whore.  Just make sure you get his good side, or his publicist will go all Mike Vick on you.

Send me a PM here if you want my cell phone to make it easier to hook up.

Hey guys. I'm going to be in Chicago for YearlyKos this weekend. I doubt I'll join you at the museum, but if anyone wanted to meet for lunch before that, I'd be up for it. Email me (stcynic@gmail.com) if anyone is interested - and do it tonight, since I'm leaving in the morning.

Thanks for the interest Ed, we'd love to see you at the Museum.  Might take you up on the lunch meet, (or lunch meat :)) and have emailed another party regarding their interest.  Per your instructions, I'll send you an email, if we can swing it.

ps: Welcome aboard ATBC - Come for the knowledge, stay for the fun!

John's brother-in-law told me tonight that Lallapalooza will be going around in the grounds surrounding the museum, and it's going to be crowded and nuts, even around the entrance.

Just a heads-up.

Maybe I'll hold up an "I'm with the banned" sign! :)

I sent my cell number to Kristine and Rich so they can get ahold of me. I'm leaving for Chicago shortly. The only email I'll be checking while I'm there is stcynic@gmail.com, so reach me there or on my cell. Whoever wants to meet up for lunch, go ahead and make the plans and let me me know when and where to meet you all.

Art - I received Professor Steve-Steve and his new friend today, and he is very happy to be going to the Museum this Saturday and diner later.  He is hoping to eat Chinese - I told him that the Irish Pub we were planning on going to would be glad to cook him up a Shephards Pie with bamboo.  Personally, I think if he has enough Jameson's he won't care about the bamboo.

If we have any other Panda Experts out there, please feel free to make recommendations.

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.

Pah! Beers were had. Where was my invite? Hmmm. Where was my all expenses paid first class trip to Chicago to have a beer with you? Hmmm.

Frankly I don't think you are trying hard enough and as such when and if any of you come to the UK I shall only buy you one pint of cheap beer and no peanuts. So there.

Thinks it can fobs us off with mouldy photoses does it? No Precious it cannot. Wants beer with Yanks I does, yes Precious.

:angry:

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.

Excellent!  Good job all around.  So, is Richard, or Kristine going to do a "Guest Post" at Pandas?

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.

J-Dog,

Go ahead and send him to Wesley.  We can get him to England again in a few months.

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. :)

Someday when he's bored and looking to get smashed, I'll take him to Hell. I can't promise the photos will be in focus, or that the text will make any sense.

Reed, you can use any of the photos I uploaded to Stever's site. :)

Yeah, I just caught this too...too bad - It was my turn to buy the beers!

Maybe I'll get a chance to get even with you when FTK stops off on her way to the Creation Museum in KY.
