Strange Things are Afoot at the Circle K.

Well, my parents are going to be mourning this for a while, especially my dad.

"MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 12) - Maurice Gibb, a member of the famed disco band the Bee Gees, died Sunday at a Miami Beach hospital, his family said. He was 53.

"Gibb, who joined with his older brother and his twin to harmonize their way to becoming one of the best selling musical groups ever, suffered cardiac arrest before undergoing emergency surgery for a blocked intestine. He was admitted to Mount Sinai Medical Center Wednesday and underwent surgery Thursday.

"''To our extended family friends and fans, with great sadness and sorrow we regretfully announce the passing of Maurice Gibb this morning,'' Gibb's family said in a statement. ''His love, enthusiasm and energy for life remain an inspiration to all of us. We will all deeply miss him.''"

My parents loved the BeeGees. A couple of Christmases ago my mom bought my dad every BeeGees album there is on CD. I like them too, but not that much.

Goddammit, time for work.
