In my Jan 25th blog entry I mentioned I received an email from my friend Trevor who was shipping off with the Canadian army to Afghanistan. He must’ve only been there a matter of a few days when his patrol was attacked and his vehicle blown up.
Luckily he only suffered whiplash in the attack and he has emailed me to let me know he is okay. He is the one in the story identified as the “fourth soldier”.
As for myself, I have been in Hong Kong lately on my own version of a tour… my main potential hazards are STD’s however, otherwise known as “being too friendly fire”.
I went out with a friend, John, in HK last night. He was telling me about this book he was reading on personalities and told me if I read it, it would help me to understand and have better luck with girls… he barely finished the sentence when I cut him off, “uh i totally don’t need that dude”. It has really gotten to the point now where I don’t even really try… I am even kinda mean to some girls sometimes just because I can… and as you probably guessed, they just seem to like that even more.
He kinda looked at me like “cmon you can’t be that good with girls”… i was like, just watch tonight. We were at a jazz piano bar in HK at the time after eating dinner and it was no less than a minute after I told him he would see that we were trying to leave when I was cornered by a girl who I think worked there… she wouldn’t let me leave… telling me to go back to the bar… i didn’t really like her even though she was quite cute so we dodged her and got out… we walked into the next place, a loungey place in Lang Kwai Fong, ordered a drink, and within seconds these two girls come up, they say “we lost a bet and we have to kiss you”.. i immediately notified them that it was more like they “won the bet and get to kiss me”. One of them just jumped on me right after that.
I just looked at my friend with the “i’m telling you” look as this girl was trying to lick my esophagus… i was then approached within seconds by some other girl… this went on all night as I continued to be grabbed, groped, kissed and propositioned for the remainder of the evening…
I still don’t know what it is… pheromones? whatever it is, it is crazy…
Anyway, I am going to go back to China tomorrow… still working on this movie deal but the guy I am dealing with may be insane… so not sure how much longer I will continue to try to make this work… to be honest, I’d really rather just be in Thailand with my BKK bisexual gf right now… I have some friends going there in about a month and may try to go there then to hook up with them, but I don’t know if I can wait a month… this Bangkok girl is the craziest girl I have ever known… I like it!
As for other things, I have been writing and working more with SH lately… wrote a pretty funny piece on the Wayne Gretzky gambling thing today (up on StockHouse.ca front page on Wednesday.
Also as usual trading stocks… resource market in general corrected a bit last week, but that is to be expected… makes a better entry point for those who still haven’t bought some gold, silver, oil, natgas and uranium stocks.
And, to end today’s blog entry with some political commentary, how lame is Dick Cheney? He steals and cheats his whole life to get tons of money and “power”… and for what? So he can drive around in his pickup truck, get out with some of his old, also-evil friends, have someone release cage-bred wingless, disoriented birds, so he can shoot them with a shotgun (the firearm you don’t even need to aim because it just sends a plethora of shrapnel in the general direction of your shot)… and he is so useless and uncoordinated that he somehow manages to shoot his 78 year old buddy in the face while doing it. Haha… Man, I hope in the afterlife Dick Cheney is cage-bred and mutilated so that he can be sent out as easy-prey for Quail’s with shotguns. What a loser.
