got laid

…the first penguin eggs of the season, that is.  Look at these proud parents:

I am very excited.  That’s easy for me to say, because unlike these penguins I don’t have to spend the next month fasting while I diligently keep my gestating baby warm,  simultaneously fending off predators.  Seriously, everywhere you look here it’s like a quintessential nature documentary.  You can practically hear David Attenborough’s voice with every breeze.

In other news:  a giant HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my big bro, Drew.  I wish I could be in North Carolina to celebrate with you.
