    After being in Antarctica for over a month now and getting bored looking at the damn seals ( they just lay there, not that I expected them to juggle or anything ) there are finally penguins near the station.

    I couldn't figure out how to post the pics on here so I threw on a link to my blog, feel free to check em out.

    Antarctica is on a (long) list of places I want to go. Looks fantastic.

    I'll never understand what people find some great about Starbucks.

    well seeing that everyone has different tastes, to some ppl starbucks is good, some ppl it;s the very essence of their being. and some ppl hate it.

    so you have no reason to understand it, it's something you just accept

    O.K. xrichx.. how the hell did you do that LOL, I've been trying to figure out how to post pics on the forums forever.

    It's daylight 24/7 and the sun is always high in the sky, it was darker the day I took those pics due to the cloud cover

    It's imortant to have good sunglasses here beacuse the bright sun on the snow and ice is indeed blinding.

    It's funny about Starbucks because at home I can't stand their coffee like many people have noted, but after drinking the crap here that passes for coffee I'd give my arm for a Venti right now LOL
