I woke up at 8 AM today, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! Later on, I learned that I'm an aunt again to Nephew #4, Henry, who was born at about 6 AM! I approve of the first and middle names.


In FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS, Strago and the party defeat Astos the Dark Elf and his Dark Goblins on Ebot's Rock north of Mysidia. The player discovers that Gungho was faking his injuries, then the party leaves town. On the way out, they come across Gungho, who asks: "Everything okay?"

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..."

I discovered that Michael Paul Marcus McKinney unfriended me, but that's okay!


In SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE, Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad check out the Charm Song that they got from Lufenia. "Stamped on the bottom... MADE IN LEFEIN."




My ex-friend Michael Paul Marcus McKinney, whom I remember meeting via Scrabulous in 2008!

I discovered redrum today... ugh! Then Hester, her husband Ni, and two strong delivery guys dropped by at 1:45 with my BRAND NEW FRIDGE AND FREEZER from Moffat Applicances! That replaced my very old White-Westinghouse fridge and freezer from the 80s, which finally conked out in mid-May or mid-June. I wasn't impressed when Hester called me "N-G," and when the guys left my blue towel (which they used to wipe the back of the old fridge) on the bush outside the front door. I was going to throw it out anyway, but REALLY? At least I was able to save most of my fridge magnets AND the "peeing in toilet" decal from Granville Island!


From Janina and Team Crazy: I'm not a tomboy, but I'm not a girly girl, either. Like, I wanna get my nails done, but then again, I wanna set shit on fire.

I went out to the Bay at 3:15 on a 407 for a new 3-pack of Jockey underwear in size 9 (last bought on November 15, 2016) since I needed some partly because of the other day. Thank goodness for extra money in my bank account! Then I went to London Drugs to get Tasty Bite basmati rice and some Arroy-D green curry to go with it, bulk Always pads, 400 index cards, on-sale Guacachips, on-sale Salsitas chips, NEW on-sale Paqui tortilla chips in Grilled Habanero / Cool Salsa Verde flavors, and an on-sale replacement $2 dark blue washcloth. I was surprised when I got home at only 4:25 on another 407!


NEW Paqui tortilla chips: Grilled Habanero!




NEW Paqui tortilla chips: Cool Salsa Verde!




Bartz, Lenna, Faris, and Galuf finally get to Bal Castle from the Forest of Moore thanks to Krile's wind drake. The first three are very surprised to learn that Galuf is actually a king! Bartz: "Eh? I thought you were just some crazy old man - you never said anything about being a king!"




Bartz: "Just kidding! I'd just better mind my P's and Q's around you... King Galuf."




Galuf: "Listen up - before you knew me as a king, you knew me as a friend. Just "Galuf" is fine."




Bartz: "Understood, Just Galuf!"




Galuf: "... Don't push it, kid. Here in Bal, bad jokes like that will get you PUNished..."

I decided to call my worker Barry at 10:50 to finally let him know about last week's events: Hester actually believing me with proof about the freezer not working. I swear, the ice cream was pretty bleh! Then the apartment building manager Hester, her husband Ni, and the maintenance repair guy came around at 1:30 to check out my fridge and freezer. The official diagnosis is that I need a new fridge and freezer combo because my current one is from the 1980s, and the maintenance guy isn't going to repair THAT! Thank goodness that Hester heard that straight from the repair guy's mouth, as she will now let her office know about things, so I'll see what happens with this. She also told me not to buy anything that needed to be frozen until after I heard what her office had to say and got a new fridge and freezer: DUH?!


In SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE, Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad go into the Earth Cavern to defeat Wario and get the Ruby. "There is a stone plate on the floor... You sense something... Evil? ..."




Ruby: A large red stone.




Later, the SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party goes into the Giant's Cave to give the Ruby to this stone monster. "If you want pass, give me the RUBY... Crunch, crunch, crunch... Mmm, it tastes so sweet. Rubies are my favorite."




Rod: The ROD to remove the plate from the earth. (the SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party got this from the Sage's Cave)




The SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party gets the Oxyale from the formerly-Bottled Faerie once they let her go when they reach the town of Gaia. "The OXYALE furnishes fresh air." This lets the party breathe underwater in the Sunken Shrine dungeon in Onrac.

I found out that the freezer might not have been working properly, so I called Hester at 11:25 for some help in that regard. After asking me what the freezer was (???), she said to adjust the number levels on temperature sensor, and to drop her a note later. Since I had to do my laundry after I showered anyway, I decided to combine two second-floor trips into one, and finished the laundry at 2. Hester came by at 3:45 to check stuff, and she said it was okay after adjusting some more things. At least she wasn't rude like she can be!

I think it's amusing that I'm mentioning Teunis and Krista in the same post since they used to go out with each other and are now exes, haha. :D

After MORE COFFEE TIME, I went out at 6:15 to mail Lisa's Twisted Whiskers goldfish in martini birthday card to her at the London Drugs post office. Then I went to the Richmond Centre Dining Terrace food court (eating some food first - vegetable chow mein, mixed vegetables, pepper steak, and slightly spicy Kung Pao chicken from Kung Pao Wok) to meet up briefly with Teunis so to return a Christmas-themed envelope with Teunis's name on it, plus a Percy Jackson and Olympians: The Lightning Thief DVD box. At least, I intended it to be briefer than it was. He brought his wife and child (Rochelle and Heidi) from Burnaby, and we both got closure on what happened in 2011, which is nice. Discussed his not talking to Jasmine anymore (good!), understanding, being stressed out, no online following (which is totally fine), vegetables, his treating me to a mango oolong bubble tea with small pearls from Fair Bee Bubble Tea (I was too fast for him when it came to dinner food!), and my nephews.

We also talked about their Vietnamese food with sauces and shrimp salad rolls, Heidi wanting to give me her used plastic cutlery, his meeting Mike once briefly, our lives now, shaking hands, web design, Heidi's impatience / thinking it was Metrotown with the train for kids / liking all the lights, the Canucks, Vikings, my learning the importance of non-rushed alone time / non-emergencies, and a floor plan of the mall. I got home with leftovers at 8:20 on a 407, which is good because it was still light out. At least he says that it's good to see I'm doing much better, and I can say the same for him as well.

Since I got up at 7:25 AM, it was COFFEE TIME! Later, I called Seafair Safeway customer service to see if I could return Oakridge Safeway items there instead. Since I could, I made plans to go there to return the Tostitos / Mrs. Renfro's salsa since I can't open it even with the jar opener! Before going out at 12:30, I called Chrystal at work to confirm things for tomorrow since I didn't want to waste a shower later, and we are on! At Seafair, they gave me grief about not specifying the brand and type of salsa since they didn't sell the Ghost Pepper there, so they'd have to throw it out. That's not my problem if I just want to return it - and no, I was not going back to the Oakridge Safeway!

When I got on the 402 back to Brighouse, I was surprised when someone called my name. It turned out that Uncle Peter and Auntie Ying were on that bus, having come from a massage and then doing some shopping later! So of course I talked to them all the way to Brighouse! I browsed Shoppers briefly, then bought Heluva Good dip (French Onion / Dill Pickle) which has a limited shelf life but is WAY EASIER to open, Welch's prune juice (which I could open WITHOUT the jar opener for now), NEW Tasty Bite Thai Lime rice, NEW Tasty Bite Thai Penang Ginger Curry sauce, and a dark blue GOODY toothbrush holder at London Drugs before getting home at 2:40 on a 407 in the rainy weather.


GOODY toothbrush holders!

I went out at 2:40 to get more on-sale President's Choice Blue Menu Six Bean Medley cans at Shoppers Drug Mart as long as they're still 99 cents! The pharmacist next door recognized me and waved at me, so we chatted briefly while waiting for the light to change. Yeah, Richmond smells like shit again today! I got six cans of beans, two on-sale Brookside dark chocolate bags (mango-mangosteen / pomegranate), eight 99-cent White Cheddar and Broccoli Sidekicks (all the available stock on the shelf like last time!), and an on-sale Speed Stick Irish Spring original deodorant before getting home at 3:25 on a 407.

Since I was up at 5:45 AM (ugh), it was COFFEE TIME! After a nap and such later, I went out at 4:30 (just missing the 401 and just managing to get the C94 instead) to go to the Apple Store at Richmond Centre to hopefully finish my WORMS tagging on Facebook since it just gave me a spinny loading icon no matter what I tried at home. The same thing happened over there! At least I stumbled upon a 99-cent sale for both White Cheddar and Broccoli Sidekicks (I bought four) and President's Choice Blue Menu Six Bean Medley cans (I bought five) ... so since the beans sale ends on June 2, I'll get some more on Thursday! It saves me 70 cents a can from the London Drugs price for a can of beans right now! Then I waited FOREVER for a 407 at Brighouse, getting home at 5:55!


Spinny loading icon on the WORMS page:




President's Choice Blue Menu Six Bean Medley: chickpeas, dark red kidney beans, black-eyed peas, white kidney beans, Romano beans, and baby lima beans!

Steph and Fraser called me at about 1:10 PM today, which was at least a fine surprise. Fraser said that he was eating apples and crackers, and could answer "yeah" when prompted to answer my various simple questions about whether he liked the zoo. I said that I would hopefully be having dinner with Chrystal at some point, would go to Jeremy's for that Jacob's Well fundraiser, mentioned that I'd seen a PEPPA THE PIG book at London Drugs (they have a whole set), said that Hiero needs to eat more protein (1.5 tiny mandarin oranges is not really a proper dinner...), said that Ayler now understands the concept of a square root! Steph said that Sandy still had her food truck breakfast business, mentioned that Fraser could definitely go in the pool with help and supervision later in the year (I can see the older kids not paying attention to him!), says that Fraser likes watching the older kids to observe what they do, and had to go when Fraser wondered why Lisa was in the washroom after getting home. At least Fraser seems to be settled in now at his new (smaller) daycare!


From Krista: A dragon in space with a sun flare!

After I had COFFEE TIME and called London Drugs customer service to find out when their current sale ends on Rubbermaid dish drainers (May 28), Barry picked me up at 12:45 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I bought on-sale Classico pasta sauce x2 (Four Cheese and Tomato / Pesto), noodles, a shower pouf, Teriyaki Rice / Noodles Sidekicks, preserved vegetables, on-sale Cheemo perogies x2 (Country Mushroom and Potato / Bacon / Romano Cheese), pork and tri-treasure / lamb and onion / pork and vegetable / pork and chives JOY dumplings at the Big Crazy price (which saves me a trip out there if it's the same price), on-sale store brand paper towels, and JML chicken and mushroom noodles. I also got on-sale Western Family French Vanilla ice cream, NEW Pillsbury poutine Pizza Pops in a special edition (I love the alliteration!), NEW Pillsbury cheese pizza bites, NEW Pillsbury pepperoni pizza bites, Juzz Mee curry noodles, a BC roll for $3.99 (better than the 22-piece $10.99 assorted rolls if the expiry date is still tomorrow, May 25), Vedan noodles x2 (Spicy Mushroom / Cuttlefish and Mushroom), and on-sale Ruffles chips x3. (Loaded Potato Skins / Sour Cream and Bacon / All-Dressed) I also saw preserved Cordia seeds while I was in the Chinese jars aisle, so made a note of that to tell Citrus so he can tell his sister.

While I was at the store, I helped a random white guy with some Nissin black garlic oil noodles, and told an old grandma that her shawl looked pretty. (it had Japanese women with fans on it!) She at least thanked me! When I got home at 2:10, Barry did agree to help me with changing the batteries on the phone in my bedroom, which is good. Afterwards, I paid my Shaw bill online today, then somehow unplugged my computer speakers while trying to figure some stuff out! My cashier recognized me, and so we chatted a bit - his name is Ray, and he has a white half-beard thing. I left again at 6:30 to London Drugs, where I got a new on-sale dish drainer (April 11, 2015) on Aisle 1 / on-sale purple GUM Comfort Slide flossers since today was the last day of their being on sale currently / an on-sale Slinky toy plus an on-sale Redbox pre-historic dinosaur toy set with trees (#24359) for Ayler's birthday.

I got a much more helpful computer associate this time (yesterday's associate had told me to go to the front for checkout and didn't seem interested in customer service), who sold me a black Microsoft Wired 600 keyboard for $20. Thank goodness it worked when I got home at 8:30 (just missing a 407 and having to wait for the next one), after a mini heart attack when it initially wouldn't work to put in my password at startup! This one is quieter and much lighter, too! Time to email Harmony to see when a good time would be to drop off the gifts, or see Ayler too, I guess. NOW MY MOUSE AND KEYBOARD ARE FREE OF MIKE AND HIS TAINT!

I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online today. Barry picked me up at 1 after I had COFFEE TIME, and we went to both banks before heading to Price Smart. I bought Gatorade Cool Blue Raspberry x6, Excel White gum x3, $1 Sidekicks (Teriyaki Noodles / Tomato Alfredo x2 / Three Cheese x3 / Creamy Chicken Fusilli x3 / White Cheddar Queso / Teriyaki Rice / Singapore Curry Noodles x2 / Garlic Butter with Lemon x2 / Creamy Parmesan), NEW on-sale Western Family Loaded Chocolate Sundae ice cream in a limited edition ($2 off!), NEW Häagen-Dazs Spirits Vodka Key Lime Pie ice cream, Western Family fusilli (900 grams) / Western Family rotini (900 grams) / Western Family penne rigate (900 grams) / NEW Western Family macaroni (900 grams) / NEW Western Family Cavatappi pasta / NEW Western Family Casarecce pasta, on-sale bottled water x2 (two for $7 when the regular price was $6.75 for ONE!), and Silk almond milk x2.

I also got NEW Ruffles Mozzarella and Marinara chips (and told Sam on Discord later), on-sale All-Bran Buds ($2 off!), on-sale Honey and Lemon Strepsils (50 cents off!), Indomie Mi Goreng BBQ Chicken noodles, Silk almond vanilla milk x2, Mama shrimp tom yum noodles, on-sale Mamee Monster BBQ noodle snacks (almost $2 off!), on-sale Mamee Monster chicken noodle snacks (almost $2 off!), Vedan Bah Kut tea noodles x2, Vedan Mushroom / Cuttlefish noodles, and bananas. Turns out I saved $33.92 today, which is good! When I got home, I put $20 aside in an envelope for whenever Chrystal and I go out to dinner, then promptly spilled half the All-Bran Buds on my dining room table! Good thing that nothing got on the carpet, which is practically the same color as the cereal! For cleanup purposes, I wiped all the cereal detritus with a damp cloth after scooping most of it into the Ziploc bag!


From Buzzfeed: OH, RICK! What the heck?!

Since I was up at 6:45 AM today, it was COFFEE TIME! Then I made a post in r/vancouver asking if anyone wanted my Vancouver Art Gallery pass which expires on the 30th. I don't think Eric Ho is actually available even though I sent him two emails about it. Someone from Reddit named Jamie said that they could take it from me after the Sun Run, which was right then at 9 AM. Luckily, I had more than enough time to properly draft entries / eat some Butter and Herb Sidekicks / dress in normal clothes / put everything in my pockets before heading to the Vancouver City Centre London Drugs downtown at 11:35 or so on a 407. I was there at 12:20 and stood around for a while until Jamie figured out that I was there. We chatted briefly about playoff hockey and the Art Gallery pass; he invited me to coffee, but there's no need for him to pay me back for that, haha. I got home at 1:25 on a 407 after buying some 180-tablet melatonin at the London Drugs since it was right there. Nope, I definitely did not need a bag for that!
