I got an email from Mike about adding him to my LinkedIn network - NO FUCKING WAY! Then I showered tonight after talking to Vanessa about her pregnancy, Langley dim sum, ha-gow, and such via Facebook messages.


Carry A. Nation?!




Shadow never appears on the Blackjack in FINAL FANTASY 6, yet he has a line in the game's content, anyway. Here he is with Setzer, Sabin, Edgar, and Gau. "... Why am I here...? For the money, I guess."




From Janina: Who needs gender roles when we can have sushi rolls?

I showered and did laundry today, a day earlier than I might have! However, I had to wipe a very watery bathroom floor with a mop and multiple (paper) towels, then had to do TWO loads of laundry on the THIRD floor, where one of the dryers was out of order! What stressful stramash! AIYA! I finally finished all the laundry just now at 7:30!


The FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party (Gau, Sabin, Celes, and Strago) goes to visit the crazy old man. Aged Man: "Oh, hello again! Yep, you were tops!" Sabin: "That's why we..."




Jidoor fashion at its best! )
glowing_dragon: (No Netspeak!)
After COFFEE AND ASPIRIN TIME, I went out at 3:30 for my dentist appointment at 4 with Sean, which went fine even if a few teeth seemed a bit sensitive. They even gave me free fluoride that my insurance didn't cover, plus an Oral-B toothbrush and Crest Pro-Health Advanced toothpaste! Then I got NEW Uncle Ben's Smokey Red Beans and Rice, on-sale Tostitos chips (low-sodium Rounds / regular Rounds / Gold), on-sale Mrs. Renfro's salsa x2 (Ghost Pepper x2), Crest Complete and Colgate toothpaste in tubes x3 (including Max Fresh x2 in Minty Sparkle with Bright Strips / Electric Mint Shockwave with Micro-Cooling Beads, plus Crest Whitening Outlast with Scope!), a Colgate toothbrush, and Tostitos Salsa Con Queso dip at the Oakridge Safeway. After a brief stop at the Oakridge Apple Store, I went home and got there at 6:10 on a 407. YAY FOR CAVITY DEFENSE TECHNOLOGY! Then I talked briefly to Vanessa via Facebook messages about Jason, lying, and smoking.


Rice, chips, salsa, and toothpaste! )

Eric M. called me at 11:30 from church to say that he wouldn't be going back to Richmond, but could give me a ride back from Jeremy's. Sure, I can bus there, and I didn't have to leave the house really early at 2 PM! That gave me more time to do stuff! After COFFEE TIME (during which I almost left with my pants on backwards), I left the house at 4, and killed a slight bit of time at Kingsgate Mall. The Books, Etc. store is now 90% DVDs and puzzles! I bought NEW Moscow Mule Kettle chips, OXO beef bouillon sachets, and a Hot Beef Pho Mr. Noodles bowl from Buy-Low Foods before walking over to Jeremy's at 5:15 or so. Unfortunately, I had to see my ex-friend Randal, who mentioned to Jon's friend Mallory that he has "a passion for God and wants it to show at work" - THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU DO! I can't believe I ever liked him!

I said hi to Julie S., Ivan, Emily, Sam, Quan, Gino, Kevin, and Caleb after meeting Jon's other friend Eric (from Jacob's Well) / Angel / Mallory. Then I talked to Stanley about my 90% whiskey, his band, Peter Gabriel, the CODEX, weird acoustic dubstep, and the whiskey. I updated both Jesse and Jon's friend Rebecca about my life recently, and talked about the summer / no editing for Holly / not doing well with change / all this unknown stuff possibly impacting people's recovery (Rebecca said that my point was a very good one which she hadn't thought about before), Jacob's Well needing $50,000 and already raising $42,000 in two weeks / all my nephews loving me ("You have to stay longer! Stay all night!") / Ontario hydro bills. One guy in a Youtube / NPR video even had a traffic cone inside his saxophone, haha! Eric and I left early (after I paid $10 and he made a comment about my chips), and I got home at 9:05.

Then I noticed that Chinese Eric had called me at 5:45, so I called him back at 10. He had called me by accident, but he wanted to see if I was up for seeing a Blue Jays-Mariners game this weekend. I thought he meant a literal road trip, but thank goodness he didn't. He says it's been eight months (really six or so) since we hung out here; he's been busy and apparently had a problem with his Hotmail account, but didn't really specify what. (but did say that he had 3500 emails to sort through... JUST DELETE THEM!) We also talked about heat, a sauna, the 162-game MLB schedule, and catching up later. Hopefully, I don't have to do anything else after next Sunday for quite a while! DRAINING!


NEW Moscow Mule Kettle chips!




OXO Beef Bouillon sachets!




Sauteed soy-sesame spinach! (gotta love the alliteration!)




Bo Ssam [Korean pork] served with two sauces, a Ssam Sauce and a Garlic-Scallion Sauce!

From Vanessa and When summer starts, my life is instantly better: A baby onesie that says, "Ah, good sir. I do believe I've shat in my pantaloons." The onesie also features a mustache!




From Laid-Back Corner: 1975 Led Zeppelin vs. 2012 Nicki Minaj?! Led Zeppelin's THANK YOU wins over Nicki Minaj's song about a stupid hoe EVERY TIME!




From Julie: There's an Indycar driver named Will Power?!

I went out to vote today, at least.


From Krista: A red dragon guarding a spire from heroes!




From The Bleacher Report: Wolfgang Wolf?!




From Julie: Ted Yoho?! Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!




Anelisa Durham?! I see her parents tried to avoid "anal" in her name by not spelling it as Analisa, but you can still hear it when you say the name. Yuck!

glowing_dragon: (Default)
From Julie: Meocean is a girl's name?! If you identify as the ocean and you're not a little kid, I've got news for you...




From Buzzfeed: BUTTER SAFE THAN SORRY?!




From Vanessa: "Ling-Ling, why you get B+ at school? You not Bsian, you Asian!"

From Whisper: 4-20 is National Weed Day, 4-21 is National Drug Test Day, and 4-22 is National Unemployment Day!




From Julie: Savvy Shields?! No, this is not an ad for a medieval armor shop... that's her name, short for Savannah. I don't think Savannah needs a nickname...




From Vanessa: Butter soda?! EW!

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
Jason's birthday is April 1. After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 5 to meet Vanessa and Jason at Joyce Station by 6:30, I brought the peanut butter / peppermint Whittakers chocolate bars, the carrot cake Hershey's Kisses, and the birthday cards! I just managed to get the 407, just missed a Canada Line train, and just missed a 41 Joyce bus! Oh, the humanity! Vanessa and her work friend Elizabeth were still waiting for me, while Jason was parked down the road a bit. When Vanessa gave me the Bath and Body Works White Citrus foaming hand soap, Bath and Body Works Peach Bellini foaming hand soap, and Bath and Body Works Fresh Market Apple foaming hand soap, I gave her all the chocolate and stuff before I forgot. She said that she might be able to get me a ride to Richmond with her friends Wayne and Shelina, which was fine by me. I also met her friends Elizabeth, Chad (who's a smoker), and Jen. We talked about work, the hour-long lineup to get into Anton's, Wayne and Shelina (who are FWB) being extremely late (WE DON'T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT A VIAGRA / CIALIS MOMENT, JASON!), beer, picture frames, newspaper routes, Shelina's clingy ten-year-old son, my aspirin, Jason's back pain, Elizabeth being a registered Shiatsu massage therapist, gay Patrick, going downtown, my spicy Fusilli New Orleans pasta with shrimp / scallops / chicken / Italian sausage, Jen living near Boundary, Shelina somehow spelling "Hastings" with an M, Shelina being Native and being from Victoria (but her parents now live on a reserve near Agassiz), emulators, MAME and arcade games, directions, tiramisu cake, and Easter weekend plans. It was a good time out, but now I'm ready to relax!


Fusilli New Orleans!




Bath and Body Works White Citrus foaming hand soap!




Bath and Body Works Peach Bellini foaming hand soap!

Vanessa told me earlier on Facebook chat that she's bringing me some Bath and Body Works hand soap tomorrow night. I joked that I had showered earlier (true), so I shouldn't smell THAT bad. Hahaha!


From UNSOLVED MYSTERIES: Trinity Cawood is a GUY?! Not that I like Trinity for a girl, either... and the surname is pronounced "Kay-wood," not "Caw-wood."




After finishing up the Vector banquet sequence in FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS, Locke and Terra go to the pub. Tarza, on the pub: "Smells like parents' house here... why so familiar?" Wait... how does he remember that if he was thrown out of the house immediately after his birth?!

Sherry Norris wanted to add me to Facebook from the Puckheads - okay, then! Experienced the "whoosh-whoosh" in my ears again, too! Talked to Vanessa briefly on MSN when she asked about something... yeah, that's still going on. I was going to go out for a short while to visit Grandma and feed her some dinner... I unexpectedly saw my parents there, so they wanted to take me out for dinner AFTER we helped Harmony with the baby. At least I did feed Grandma some congee and her actual dinner of meat / veggies / mashed potatoes, and she thanked me for it mid-feed! She wanted to feed herself some dessert, so I let her do that while keeping an eye on her.

Of course, she asked me whether I wanted some food! As usual, I said no. Mom gave me some shoes and a bunch of mostly-old snacks from Grandma's room (Bugles / Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa medicine with an expiry date of 2002?! / shredded pork / cream wafers / shrimp crackers / Chinese egg rolls / strawberry jam) before we left to see the baby. She also let me invite Chinese Eric to Thanksgiving Dinner - I didn't tell her that I already had invited him during Monday's marathon phone call - and wondered if he'd like to help with Grandma, hahaha! I threw most of the stuff out except the Bugles, which were still good / non-aired out. Later, I got to hold the baby (who smiled and grabbed my finger) for a while before he got fussy - he wanted to look out the window, of course. He also apparently enjoyed bathtime, and HATED being taken out of the water since he cried A LOT! It was cold even inside, for sure.

Harmony says they got back from Portland today, and got really good at eating really fast since the baby had meltdowns every time they wanted to have dinner! The parents and I went to a Vietnamese place to have dinner - it used to be Sun Wong Kee, and I remember it well. After pork / chicken / lamb / shrimp / noodles, we went to see if Mom could find Neo-Citran at London Drugs since she was sick; luckily, she could! (Nicole couldn't last night!) I finally got home at 8:35 or so, to a rather perfidious email from Randal about how my tagging him resulted in "trivial" emails, and how it wouldn't matter if I unfriended him. FINE THEN, I'LL GRANT YOUR WISH! NO MORE HEALING FOR YOU! If you want to be unfriended that badly because you can't stand the emails you get when I tag you in pictures and other people comment on them, FINE! I will grant you your wish, you perfidious fucking asshole. At least others were nicer about it!


A funny MY BIBLE sign that Julie S. spotted: YOU CAN'T ENTER HEAVEN UNLESS JESUS ENTERS YOU! (so wrong...)
