Herbie Hancock wins album of the year? What kind of mess is that?

We're quick like bunnies today, Windsor. In an effort to make the gym at all this week [down 20-25, depending who you ask], I have to go before work. Meaning I have to shower there before catching the subway. Which strikes me as kind of icky, but I guess I'll have to deal.

Oh, and apologies about skipping Friday. I don't remember why, but I'm pretty sure it was a good reason.

Interesting: what's bad for Windsor is good for the navy, apparently, as hundreds turn out for a job fair at the HMCS Hunter over the weekend. Good for them if it gets some people some jobs, but man, I've known some people in the reserves in my time, and it was nothing but drugs and easy sex for them. Though perhaps that was just the sort of people I hung out with.

Rejected: Struggling search engine Yahoo! turns down a $44-million takeover bid from Microsoft, claiming the [unsolicited] offer undervalues Yahoo's worth. Looks like the software giant will have to find another means to combat Google.

Disappointed?: Kanye scored three wins himself, but not the elusive album of the year he wanted so badly. As for the show, Mr. West almost got a tear out of me during his performance, and who else could have told the producers to cut the music during his acceptance speech and got it done? As well, as much as I think Winehouse is overrated, her surprise at winning record of the year was so genuine, I was actually touched. I know, I'm going soft in my old age, Windsor.

Disgusting: we've officially effed up the oceans so bad that noxious materials have started to emerge.

Updated: Obama takes Maine, Clinton replaces campaign leader.

Confirmed: Press egalitarianism and stories about cows - two more reasons to go to Iceland.

Not Surprising: Japanese man charged under waste disposal laws for dumping 1000 porno DVDs in a vacant lot after his wife demands he move them out of the house.

Off! Lest you think I'm slacking Windsor, picture my fat ass on a treadmill. It's pretty amusing, actually.
