Seriously, I want my book prices to drop now, please. I've got a ten dollar Chapters gift card that I would like to be able to use to buy a whole book. I don't even care about most of the rest of it, about our retailers still charging prices on goods imported from the States as if our dollar was still fifteen cents below USD, but books have been an extravagant ripoff for about six years, now. Give me my seven-dollar books, and I will stop complaining. Really I will. For a while. Probably.
Also, notice to Vancouverites: The RCMP is launching a jaywalking blitz for the month of November, so stop doing it. If you get spotted by a cop crossing outside of a crosswalk, they WILL ticket your ass. And jaywalking citations are about the same price as speeding tickets. Something to keep in mind.
I do not have a poppy yet. Oops.
THIS JUST IN: World-famous Maple Ridge pedophile Orville Mader was arrested today as he touched down at YVR. Who wants to put money down that he gets tried in New Westminster, just like Picton? Must get full use out of that 3.5 million dollar courthouse renovation. *wry*
P.S. Holy shit. Halloween night, a gang of teenage girls beat up a Translink driver and torched her bus. WTF. Little fuckers. Torching a BUS. I say we hunt the little fuckers down and set THEM on fire. But they're in the wind. Gods, Coquitlam is charming.
The union wants to impose the same consequences for assaulting bus drivers as those for assaulting firefighters or police officers. Know what? I'm all for it. But if you want to do that, they have to be GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AGAIN.
