The night before Ig Night!

The 19th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony is Thursday evening, October 1st, at Harvard's Sanders Theatre.

If you're in the Boston area, oh, do come. It's going to be amazing. Ten (count 'em 10) Nobel Laureates on stage to give this year's Ig Nobel winners their awards. Keynote address by Benoit Mandelbrot (who likes debgeisler's cookies). Paper airplanes and other amusements.

Although tickets for the Ig Nobel ceremony are almost sold out, there are a few “imperfect view” seats left. They’re not available through the Harvard Box Office web site, though — only in person or by phone 617-496-2222.

If you're not in the Boston area and won't be flying here Thursday, watch the live webcast starting at 7:15 pm Tuesday. Or maybe even 7:14 pm.

I've been eyes-deep in rehearsals since last Saturday. I'm not in the Risk Cabaret Concert or The Big Bank Opera, but I will be running the slides showing the lyrics as they are being sung. Knowing the material and how it's being performed comes in really handy. Hence, the rehearsals.

There's quite a bit of other Ig-related excitement in my life right now. All will be revealed about it after tomorrow night's show.

Edited to reflect a better coherence with the days of the week on this planet...and again.

Um, that would be Thursday, October 1st.

Relax, have a Harpoon, Zen-like state of inner peace and tranquility.

Oh, and Mandelbrot – damn!

Thank you! Date fixed.

Ah, yup. Fab, eh?

elaine_brennan was the connecting glue between me and the whole Improbable gig. Words don't begin to describe how good it is to have friends, your own fine self included.

Thanks you, I greatly appreciate that.

And yes, Elaine is indeed a wonderful person, and a great friend.

Now, if you could get Dr. Mandelbrot to doodle a paisley on something for the ConQuesT charity auction, well . . .

Have a great time there.

Does it involve Milo the Moon Dog? Give him a scratch behind the ears from me...

The IgNobels made the front page of BBC Ceefax news, and the front page of the BBC news website too!
