Skeptically Speaking is not optional! ;-) Seriously, Desiree is made of win.

Also, Sunday 4pm may have Adam Savage, but the whole rest of that panel is made of win as well!

Enjoy! So jealous...

As it turned out, I did get to see Desiree's panel. I had put "Optional" by it because it might have been better for me to man the AstroSphere New Media table at that time.

I had to leave to get home, even though Adam was on the panel. I did, however, snag Dan Loxton's signature on his "Evolution" book for Miranda -AND- Jennifer Ouilette's signature on her "Calculus Diaries" for Victoria!
