I'm a talker. I dominate conversations. I'm not happy at a job unless I get to chat with new people. I do things like guest star on local podcasts, just so I can talk some more. I enjoy intellectual conversations about literature, spirituality, what I heard on NPR, which Doctor is my favorite, which pony on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is best, and if The Doctor met the Ponies, what would happen.
If you're a talker, you'll love these upcoming events. You get to share your insights AND drink beer or coffee. I predict only positive results.
TUESDAY - Homewood-Flossmoor Science Pub - I've been meaning to give a shout-out to the Homewood-Flossmoor Science Pub for months. Despite being in a small town, these events are held more consistently than any Science Cafe in Chicago. Their topics differ greatly from Pub to Pub, making each a unique, educational experience. This month, urban-geo-archaeo-anthropology buffs rejoice! The subject is city planning... 3,000 years ago. WAY cool! I only have one question: if University of Chicago professors are so ready to drive that far for a Science Pub, why aren't we having more in our fair city? (Tuesday, June 26th, 8PM. 1035 Sterling, Flossmoor. FREE.)
WEDNESDAY - AnimeChicago's First Round Table - AnimeChicago has been around for a while as an otaku events resource. Now, they're branching out with their own social gatherings. Site users voted FLCL as the very first Round Table topic- the perfect choice. FLCL is short enough to watch (or read) in a day, and bizarre enough to raise a bazillion questions. Also, I may or may not idolize the lefty-bass-playing of Haruko. I'M GONNA BE JUST LIKE HER... whenever I start practicing again. >_ > ...Aaanyway, these meetings are a new thing, and new things tend to stick around if people participate. (Wednesday, June 27th, 6:30 PM. Next Door, 659 W. Diversey. FREE.)
Great, right? I know. Now, onto the important stuff: Doctor Whooves origin story, anyone?? ;)
