Dear Cynical World,
I guess I am a nerd. First, I thank you for drawing my attention to that fact earlier this week as my co-worker made fun of me for knowing the call sign, listening to, and enjoying NPR. Now, to add to my nerdiness, as of this week, I am a subscriber to NG. For all my co-workers, that is National Geographic magazine...you know, the one with the pretty pictures?
I got my first (second and third) National Geographic this week. Woot! And I am addicted. AND newly educated! How is this, you ask? I am reading things in NG that are very interesting and the pictures are real pretty too. The photographer in me wanted the magazine, and when I got an offer for a $10 subscription, I JUMPED at the chance.
Did you know that three people went to Africa and took DNA of village dogs and started analyzing the data? I know it sounds weird, but I like learning about stuff people around the world are doing, learning, dreaming up.
I can't wait to read more.
