~ Nicole is here. So far she’s met my folks, Stephen, Carissa, Matt, Jamie, Ken, Rose, Bob and some lady I used to work with ten years ago. People seem to like her fine. We’ve packed up some stuff and we’ve done the town in Nanaimo and Coombs. Coombs has gotten right fucked-up in the last few years it seems. At least the towering Buddhas make for a really odd experience. Right now she’s practicing her songs in the kitchen while I make Sister Ray CDs.
