Well it is 6:30pm. It was my plan to take a nap this late afternoon (maybe early evening) but I’m not going to do that anymore. Why? Well turns out I’m appearing in a show this evening. It starts at midnight so I’m a little afraid that I might just sleep all the way through, wake up tomorrow morning and so miss my spot. So while the sleep would do me some good in order to be up so late, and functioning, I think I’ll skip it.
What’s the show? Well it’s a show on stage put on by some of the Upright Citizens Brigade. They asked me to appear as a guest – not as a character, but actually as myself, a scientist. It’ll be in front of a live audience, although they will be taping it later possible broadcast. You know how it goes with me – I especially like an opportunity to put some science out there here it is not expected so this is right up my alley. My understanding is that it’s a comedy variety improv show, and I will be interviewed chat-show style* about some ideas in science by a passionate Christian pastor, so we will no doubt have a little bit of a discussion about science and religion. My understanding is that it’s going to be provocative, and as I’m a real scientist and he’s a comedy pastor I suspect I will come off the more bruised… but I hope to give everyone some food for thought!
Come along if you’re around! Upright Citizens Brigade “Heaven Help Los Angeles” – midnight!
* Not by a cat, owl, and robot this time, I think. See here if you don’t know what I’m talking about.
