Perverse Longing

J & I watched Shackleton last night (my second time seeing it), and as much as I'm not keen on cold weather, the idea of someday going down to Antarctica is strangely compelling. Big Dead Place, a website some of the people stationed down at McMurdo keep up, only eggs me on--partly because it's so hilariously written (there's even a section called "Ask the Fucked-Up Summer Antarctican"/"Ask the Fucked-Up Winterover"). TCMTC.

And no, I don't want to do it for the penguins.
