relatively good. Everyone in court were getting their finesreduced to the absolute minimum. It’s finally summer inNanaimo. The cops are happy the judge is happy the trafficviolators are happy. Just a good place to be. Anyways theywaived my fine because the cop who ticketed me didn’tferry over from Gabriola. Someone’s getting a christmaspresent later this year. On the way out me and this cop madeeye contact and he goes, cheers. Ya man, cheers! I started learning an ancient eastern form of sword fightingthe other day on the beach. I don’t even remember what’sit’s called. Our sensei, I don’t know if that’s what he wantsto be called, verbally spits out different forms of martial artsthat he’s studied so rapidly it’s impossible to keep track of what we’re doing. So I have a bamboo sword in my hand forall of 60 seconds before he starts rapidly attacking meforcing me to block his blows impossibly fast scared he’sgoing to wack my head right off, then he comes in close anddoes some weird tripping leg sweep I’m totally not expectingsending me flying into the ocean. Awesome. 24 more reads. I’m sitting in some ultra fancy coffee shop inPort Moody down the street from the wild west real estatedevelopment that my Mom and Tony live in. They live in ahuge tower, one of two, and there’s also a sprawl of assortedcondo units here. There’s a public area with a gym, a pool,an indoor basketball court, a huge outdoor bbq, and anindoor conference area that people can rent out for events.There’s probably more people living here then on the wholeisland where I live but it’s different because most peopledon’t know each other. Just a ragtag crowd of people. Kindof cool. I’d buy a place here if I won the lottery. Why not.
