science shmience

Only nerds and geeks would go to the Academy of Science museum on a Thursday night for a fundraising event involving margaritas, electronica and Humuhumunukunukukuapua'a. So, ofcourse Vinja, Rattie and I went. (Naturally, to make fun of all the aforementioned nerds and geeks.) (Which we did.) (But considering that between the three of us, there are two engineers and a doctor, we weren't exactly ruining our street cred by being there.) Oh, and by the way, Humuhumunukunukukuapua'a is a fish that sounds like a pig. Useless piece of trivia. But if Jeopardy calls, we'll be ready.

I must say, with a margarita on an empty stomach and electronica thumping just loud enough to vibrate the dinosaur eggs on makes for a fun (nerdy) evening. I would argue that one hasn't lived until they've spent a slightly intoxicated evening in a dimly lit museum/aquarium/petting zoo turned club. Seahorses are cute in any circumstance, but a margarita and some base certainly help oinking fish make a LOT more sense!

I wasn't kidding. (Damned oinkers wouldn't pose for a pic.)
