CBC lockout. FINITO

the lockout finished a week or two ago - but i was on vacation and i missed the glorious broadcasting return of my 'favourite cbc programs'. i sent Mr. Rabinovitch an email back in august telling him to hurry the heck up. i did get a standard form email responding to my 'concerns' - but then today i received another note. i opened it thinking that maybe the cbc would be so grateful for my personal involvement in ending the lockout that they would reward me with a coffee mug, sticker, bookmark - 14 foot gold trophy. but no. i got politely informed that i was going to be added to their email list. woo hoo. spam. thanks cbc you're the best.

my office is ground level. i have a beautiful view of the parking lot and a shipping dock. truly magestic. today was window-washing day. out of the blue there are two guys washing the window right outside my office. and they are having a very colourful conversation. i won't go into details because it's truly gross - but let's just say that there was talk of a lady's behind and what one window washers would like to - urm - do to it... the other one was very impressed by his colleagues vivid description and just kept responding "holy f*cking sh*$t dude thats awesome!" i just kept working away and trying not to look over - i did kamakaze this photo though

plastination is kinda creepy

so, you might have already heard about this but.. the ontario science centre has just opened up a show called "BODY WORLDS 2" it's an educational show about anatomy. but the crazy thing is that these are not models. they are REAL people - check this out->i saw the inventor of plastination, Gunther von Hagens being interviewed on tv the other night - and he was explaning how he places the cadavers in action poses. they are still gooey and soft when he "moulds" them. urgh... did i mention that he has an indiana jones like style?
