Keep Christmas Weird

Penguins in a canoe

I enjoy how Christmas inspires people to new weird heights.  Move over Austin, TX. You do not have a monopoly on weird.

This picture of penguins in a canoe also fit in with the theme of my Christmas cards this year--penguins. I am writing a penguin viewing guide for New Zealand and it seems like suddenly I see penguins everywhere.  Some are completely silly and some are charming. The last box of cards I bought brings together Santa and penguins, thus subtly encouraging the misperception that penguins live in the northern hemisphere.

Meanwhile this huddle of penguins in the canoe show a highly adaptable spirit that I hope permeates your New Year in 2014.

Merry Christmas!
