i've always found penguins fascinating, but after seeing March of the Penguins, they're even cooler. the crap they put up with reminds me of living in Minnesota...only it's worse in Antarctica (whodathunkit?). anyway, i really appreciate the fact that they can plop on their bellies " push themselves along instead of walking on their short little legs. that rules. then again, i've recently acquired this thing for bellies. i have no explanation.
