My real Darwin Day celebration

My previous Darwin post felt a bit forced. I do think there are small and easy ways for all scientists to reach out  for the understand of evolution but the problem isn't nearly as bad as it was 6 hours ago. CNN updated it's story with a NEW poll stating that... 
"39 percent of Americans say they "believe in the theory of evolution," 
while a quarter say they do not believe in the theory, 
and another 36 percent don't have an opinion either way." 
Alright, sure. Way to go polled people!  I'm way more down with apathy than anti-evolution sentiment! So here is how I really celebrated today*:

If you can't wear fancy boots for a 200th birthday, when can you? 




*The camera angle makes me look like I have really short legs. I don't.

Hot boots. But, um, you don't have a problem with short legs, do you?

Thanks!

EGF- I have no problems whatsoever with short legs but I did get my Albatross nickname due to my size =)
I was standing on the side of my tub to take the picture in the bathroom mirror and it just struck me as really odd. My skirt falls above the knee but at that angle it appears as if I am kneeless...

Well, I guess we can remain bloggy friends then. ;)

I was wondering why on earth there was a bath tub in the picture ;) Nice boots - and keep those Darwin posts coming!

Thanks for all the comments on the boots! They were my present to myself for graduating and I love, love, love them!
