After I had COFFEE TIME / BLACK TEA TIME, Barry picked me up at 1 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I bought store brand potato and cheese perogies, on-sale Excel White gum x3, perogies, bananas, NEW on-sale Samjin pretzels x5 (Tomato Ketchup / Spicy Beef / Stir-Fried Seafood / Cheddar Cheese / Wasabi), NEW Oreo Birthday Cake ice cream, NEW Breyer's Mrs. Fields Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream, blood orange Western Family store brand Greek yogurt, NEW on-sale frozen Northern King Tom Yum seafood soup, Campbell's light cream of mushroom soup, an on-sale Dawn dish detergent (New Zealand Springs), Money's sliced mushrooms x2, NEW Old Dutch Mozzarella chips, and NEW Old Dutch Jalapeno Cheddar chips. Also purchased Halls cough drops in a pack of 36 (cherry / cool mint / honey lemon / regular), Arm and Hammer Pro Sensitive toothpaste x2, Arm and Hammer Extra Advance Whitening toothpaste, an on-sale Colgate toothbrush, on-sale apple / pineapple / mango / orange juices, on-sale Fisherman's Wharf Taiwan-style dumplings (Pork and Cabbage / Chicken and Mushroom), NEW Hint of Jalapeno Tostitos chips, a big tub of Heluva Good!

When I got home, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online. Then I discovered that Chrissy, Marissa, and Subena had all unfriended me. What the heck?!


From Janina: Necrophilia... sit back and crack open a cold one!




NEW frozen Northern King Tom Yum seafood soup: squid, shrimp, octopus, lime, galangal, lemon leaf, chili, lemongrass, MSG, garlic, and baby corn!




Money's sliced mushrooms: sliced, whole, pieces and stems x2!




Toothpaste, pretzels, and weird chip and cereal flavors! )

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 6 to meet Chrystal at the Broadway Station London Drugs. She definitely appreciated her 35 index cards for her 35th birthday, the Rose and Robin solid chocolate 200g Easter bunny, the giant Dreamworks Trolls milk chocolate heart, the two Christmas Mix packs of Coconut / Red Apple / Very Cherry / Green Apple Jelly Belly jellybeans, the carrot cake Hershey's Kisses, the Ziploc bag full of Hershey's Eggies / Lindt milk chocolate Easter eggs / Lindt white chocolate Easter eggs / Lindt dark chocolate Easter eggs / Brookside Merlot Blackcurrant and Brookside Chardonnay Grape Peach chocolates, and her very belated birthday card! We eventually headed over a block to Menya Japanese Noodle House after I'd glanced at the MAD magazine for sale. (I can't believe I didn't LIKE the Facebook page until I got home tonight!) The place had wood stumps for chairs, which is interesting! I got their Shoyu ramen while we caught up on life - her uncle moving to a Richmond townhouse somewhere, Emily and Mike not having chairs or a table yet, my seeing Uncle Peter and Auntie Ying on the 402 bus yesterday, her nephew Ethan loving numbers, and walking around London Drugs later.

I was going to get WASABI Pringles with my Heluva Good Jalapeno Cheddar chip dip, but ended up getting the sour cream and onion Pringles instead since the green colors were very similar AND they were right next to each other on the fucking shelf! I only found that out after opening them up when I got home at 8:55 on a 407 to try one, and the online shopping options on the London Drugs website only take credit cards and selected Interac cards; the shipping options are equally ridiculous, since $7.95 or $35.95 for ground shipping or UPS Western Canada delivery is exorbitant!


Menya Shoyu Ramen!

Since Steph was in town for some weird RCMP reason and we obviously had a family dinner at Wo's for this, it was COFFEE TIME for me at 3:45 before I left at 4:30! I STILL GOT THERE EARLIER THAN EVERYONE ELSE! (despite trying to book it up the stairs at Brighouse Station AND accidentally getting off two stops before I should have on the 3 bus - VERY LONG BLOCKS OF WALKING!) Luckily, Steph / Lisa / Fraser came in five minutes later. Of course I got a hug and kiss from him! We had green beans with pork, beef and broccoli, Chinese fried chicken, Shanghai noodles, sweet and sour pork (Nephew #3 LOVED the pineapples!), rice, corn soup, and yee mein with mushrooms for dinner. Ayler asked about the numbers on the Washington-Pittsburgh game, so I at least told him WHY they were counting down, although Steph added that they count UP in international hockey.

He also made an L and E with various chopsticks, while Hiero wanted to say things reversed or backwards. Fraser just hadn't had enough sleep because he hadn't slept on the plane this afternoon, but that was fine. Ayler asked me how old I was, said I should take off my hat and glasses (not now!), and wanted to come over. Haha, maybe. "Guung Guung" vs. "Yeh-Yeh" blew his mind, haha. "Why do you say Guung-Guung? You should say Yeh-Yeh!" Later, he asked why I said 'excuse me" when I left the bathroom as they were coming in. He was definitely ready to go before others were done! Mom and Dad gave me a ride home, so I got home at 6:55 at least.

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: A Rose and Robin solid chocolate 200g Easter bunny, a pair of pink and dark grey socks, eight double rolls of Royale toilet paper, two ceramic microwaveable plates, a box of Annie's organic macaroni and cheese, a travel mug, two copies of OUR DAILY BREAD covering March to August 2017 (which is honestly NOT going to make me a churchgoing person again), and a one-day pillbox which covers morning / noon / night pills.

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!

Ruffles chips: Mozzarella and Marinara!

NEW Western Family Loaded Chocolate Sundae ice cream in a limited edition!

I went out at 2:15 and wasted time at Richmond Centre trying to find a NEW Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino. Then I just missed a 410 bus to Big Crazy; when I got there, I bought Knorr hot and sour soup mix x5 / JOY dumplings x 4 (lamb and onion, pork and vegetable, pork and tri-treasure, pork and chive) / NEW Burning Dry Noodles in chili oil flavor / a family-size 400g bag of Nongshim shrimp crackers / NEW Chongqing Hot and Sour noodles in a cup. After that, I just missed a 410 bus for London Drugs, where I eventually bought NEW Häagen-Dazs Spirits ice cream x4 (Rum Ginger Cookie / Irish Cream Coffee Biscotti / Whiskey Chocolate Truffle / Rum Vanilla Caramel Blondie) and a new red Gibson owl coffee mug without a sticker on the bottom or inner bumps. I got home at 3:55, no thanks to having to wait for a 407.

I went to Richmond Public Market at 2:15 to see if they had stove pans at that "second-floor haircut shop" which Hester had mentioned. They did, but they also had a no-return policy, which I was not comfortable with. THAT WAS A WASTE OF TIME AND ENERGY! Then I went to the liquor store, where I selected some NEW on-sale 40% Crown Royal Deluxe whiskey ($2 off for 1.14 litres!) which included a tiny 50mL sample of NEW 90% Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye whiskey. I then decided to go to Specialty Chicken and Wonton House so I could try a NEW Buddha's Feast (a New Year's goal) as takeout. My last stop was London Drugs for a spare red face cloth, new Scotch scissors for my table since the old ones were rusty, NEW peanut butter Whittaker chocolate / NEW peppermint Whittaker chocolate for myself, on-sale assorted Lindt Easter eggs x2 (one for Ayler and Hiero / one for me), on-sale $2 Dawn dish detergent (Mediterranean Lavender), on-sale Hershey's Eggies, NEW Carmex lip balm x2, a replacement Gibson owl coffee mug (with a sticker which was easily peeled!) since my sunflower and rooster one kinda cracked, and on-sale store brand 40 garbage bags x2. I got home at 3:45 when it was just starting to rain with random raindrops. By the time I went out two hours later to throw my garbage out, it was really raining - good timing on my part!

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!

After I finally blocked Randal (who tried CALLING me?!), Janina let me know that she got the skull bandages / skull notebooks / Ghostly Kit-Kats / Scaries / ScAero / Coffin Crisp / letter stickers / Halloween cards / a birthday card which I'd mailed her and Marilynn last week. She appreciates my prayers and good thoughts, as well she should! Emailed Chinese Eric about things, not least the Thanksgiving Dinner! That made me feel a lot better, too. :D

Strawberry cheesecake (Christon / Jeremy), banana cream pie, chocolate cream pie, more on-sale Kraft Dinner, on-sale Paul brandy beans x2 (me / Chantelle), quinoa California roll sushi, brown rice California roll sushi, and three Sidekicks... oh my! Also got VANITY FAIR underwear at Sears, heh. I looked at the expiry dates on the cakes after deciding that the Asian bakeries wouldn't work for that kind of thing. Mexican Rice [so I can tell Pete], Garlic Butter with Lemon, Thai Sweet Chili, Spirals x2 / Sharp Cheddar x2 / Extra Creamy x2 / Three-Cheese Vegetables / Three-Cheese x2 / Vegetables / White Cheddar x2 / Whole-Wheat x2 / High-Fibre / Flax Omega-3 are quite the haul! Steph wants Thanksgiving dinner to be on the 14th, and not too late. We'll see what Mom says about that!

Discovered the start of redrum earlier, so I wasn't impressed. Ugh. I'll get underwear (from Sears) and desserts (for Christon and Jeremy's thing) sometime this week, then...

Barry called a bit ahead of schedule (as usual!), but I was ready to leave. Couldn't find brown rice sushi at the store, but perhaps it was too early in the day at 10 AM. I did get on-sale Kraft Dinner which can be microwaved ($1 each!), IOGO yogurt (key lime pie / caffelatte / strawberry parfait / raspberry-chocolate / creme caramel), on-sale Hon's beef / chicken / pork / vegetarian potstickers, on-sale almond milk x3, and on-sale toilet paper. Also bought on-sale Green Giant mixed frozen vegetables, abalone / ham noodles, barbecue chicken satay noodles, perogies, spicy beef noodles, Ivory body wash x2 (waterlily / aloe), bananas, and a cute stuffed animal for Ayler. Should be good enough for me, even if YM doesn't work for now!

Went out to buy another bubble-wrap envelope for Corey, a 69-cent CANADA one-litre bottled water / some Jensen's Chips for me, Ghostly Kit-Kats x8 (me / Eric Ho / Corey / Janina / Marilynn / Chrystal / Harmony / Lisa), Scaries x3, ScAero x3, and Coffin Crisp x3 at London Drugs before I mailed skull bandages / skull notebooks / scary candy / letter stickers / Halloween cards / a birthday card to Janina and Marilynn. It was $21.82, but I'll eat the extra cost. When I got home, I emailed Corey to make sure he's coming home for Xmas from Taiwan, and organized everything into Ziploc bags. I didn't forget the extra skull notebook, Christmas card, birthday card, or glittery Vegas postcard for Corey!

Humans over the age of 35 lose about 7000 brain cells each day. (that explains my ditziness!)

Dammit, I should have used a billion Strength Seeds before fighting Dogma and Zozogel in DRAGON QUEST VI - too late now unless I restart (so close to the end!) OR somehow figure out how to use ZST files! (I swear I knew this before when I was playing CHRONO TRIGGER last year...) Never mind, then. Doesn't really matter!

Mom and Dad were LATE picking me up this morning, and I was surprised that Mom was driving. Apparently, Dad was sick and under the influence of Neo-Citran which he didn't want to take. HA HA! We discussed Havarti's growth, dropping Jon off at Tom Lee, clothing, Nerds, chocolate, and other things which I didn't really pay attention to. Went to see Grandma briefly, and I gave her half a mini-banana... the other half looked brown, so I threw that out. I ate another mini-banana, and in the time it took for me to throw the peel in the trash, she'd finished her apple juice! Grandma also recognized me, and had a rounder face than usual... apparently, this is a medical side effect. She said that Alan had visited her earlier, which is good. Maybe she has a lot of repetition! At least she fed herself some soup.

We were off to Trinity church on 49th a bit early, but at least it was close by! Congratulated Myles in person, saw Peter and Holly, noticed Harmony with a crying Ayler (she had to bounce him all the time - maybe she missed the ceremony!), and saw Steph talking to her! Also said hi to Dorcas, who keeps forgetting our family connection to Myles, hahaha. We wondered which wedding photo category we'd fit into: probably #8, which was the groom's extended family. The ceremony was pretty traditional, right down to the vows. Brittney and her sister look REALLY alike!

Saw a bunch of people whom I haven't seen since Harmony's bridal shower and wedding back in 2009, like Peter's parents! Dropped the ugfart off at Tom Lee while discussing Thanksgiving, teaching, making money, FAT DRAGON, Portland, Pho Thai Son and the supermarket next to it BURNING DOWN (Jeremy probably saw the remains this morning!), and more. At least I got to go home after Mom unsuccessfully looked for parking at the insanely busy Yaohan Centre! I didn't want to go for smoked chicken at their house, since I'm having noodles and downtime here!
