Thursday I'll be traveling to Evolution 2009 in Idaho, but I'll be stranded in Seattle for about 9 hours waiting for my flight. These seem like the things I definitely must do while there:
- See the Space Needle, go up for look
- Pike Place Fish Market (weee flying fish!)
- Pacific Science Center
- Original Starbucks
- Freemont Troll
- Go frown by the Discovery Institute's door
I know you guys probably all think I should try to get in the Discovery Institute...but I know I'd fail. Apparently two other female atheist bloggers got a tour through lies and subterfuge and were shown around by Casey Luskin (posts here, here, and here). Other than white lies with friends, I'm uncontrollably honest...so I don't think I could go in acting like a big supporter of intelligent design. Even if I tried I probably wouldn't be able to keep a straight face. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure the second I tell them I'm on my way to an Evolution conference they'd slam the door in my face (er, well, keep it locked).
Oh well. Maybe if I'm feeling especially brave that day I'll at least try - just need to remember not to wear one of my atheist/sciencey shirts. I drew this to sum up how I'm feeling (click for larger):
Of course the little devil has to be a blogger.
