Amused Muse in the Galapagos

On Sunday I will be giving my mini travelogue of my trip to the Galapagos Islands.

I'm still throwing my PowerPoint together in between school/work assignments (arrrg!), but I'll post it after my presentation.
Below is how I look without my makeup on. No, just kidding! ;-)

That's really cool Kristine. As an ex Biology teacher I am very interested in your trip. I seem to remember that the fauna are very interesting and unusual because of the isolation of the islands. I look forward to hearing more.

You didn't see any rufous-throated North Alabama creationists in the Islands, did you?
I reckon not; they would have evolved elsewhere. They are the missing links in the story of the evolution of mankind.

Many of the species are endemic—found nowhere else. Plus, many of the animals show little fear, if any, of humans. The boobies just sat in the path and looked at us. The sea lions plopped themselves wherever they wanted. Even the sharks that inhabit these waters don’t tend to attack people (shark attacks are overblow in the media anyway) because they have no concept of us as predators/prey.

No sign! I don’t think it was their mating season. ;-)

For rufous-throated north Alabaman creationists, it's mating season all year 'round. They are not native to the Galapagos, however.

Rufous-throated north Alabaman creationists don't believe in the Galapagos.

Well, the boobies believe in them. ;-)

There are no blue-footed rufous-throated North Alabama creationists .

Boobies are brighter than rufous-throated North Alabama creationists.

I posted your event on the RDFRS site. Maybe it will bring one or two more. I also saw that you'll be at the conference in DC at the end of September. Looking forward to meeting you.

Thanks, Mike! Looking forward to meeting you, too. I hope I don't make a blue-footed booby of myself tomorrow.

I'm envious of those who attended, and looking forward to the Power Point.

"Boobies" has a whole different meaning to me than the one I think you mean. I won't go into details because there might be young eyes reading this! They are birds, aren't they? I seem to remember seeing a documentary on Discovery, or the like, about albatross's which were called boobies.

Albatrosses are separate from boobies. When I add text to my powerpoint, you'll see the difference.

Anything else is brighter than a rufous-throated north Alabama creationist.

You did as great job speaking - maybe we can do a whistle-stop tour together.

So those damn Discovery people lied to me. I thought they looked shifty. I look forward to your Powerpoint.
