I know people don't consider curling a hard or tiring game, but if you play 8 ends after not playing for the better part of a month and only three players show up on your team, you really are doing a lot of running around. Plus, I feel a possible bug coming down. So I'm wiped. Rants on the start of the provincial Liberal leadership race, the need for a bus station in St. John's and the general uselessness of the ECMAs will have to wait for another day (like how the fuck is Colleen Power nominated in the Best Folk Recording cateogy? Has anyone on the nominating committee actually listened to Face and Eyes?)
1. My gratutious federal election link comes from England. Or specifially from my favourite writer, Warren Ells, who takes a delightfully obscene shot at Prime Minister Paul Martin. Skip most of the article and just read the last paragraph.
2. I gave up on the Darwin Awards once they became this super trendy thing and when some idiot posted the four boys who died in Pouch Cove ice panning for an award. That struck a little too close to home and the awards were no longer funny to me. Yet, out of curiosity I went to check out the 2005 Award Winners. Of the four, two didn't do anything for me, one was midly groan worthy, but the guy cleaning a chimney with a hand grenade really was the hands down winner.
3. Cows with guns. Do I really need to say more?
