I went out at 2:45 and got two cans of NEW Comfort Creek Foods chicken and dumplings from the Dollar Tree. Then I got another pack of Samyang 2x Spicy Hot Chicken Ramen Flavor noodles from Big Crazy. Since they had a 10-cent surcharge on debit purchases, I got some Want Want snowy crackers. (which are plain and bland, so I'll give them to Chrystal) Apparently, I forgot my purple wallet there! Good thing that a lady came up behind me in the parking lot and let me know... that saved me some time and energy! Then I went to London Drugs to get a NEW Vileda cotton and microfibre mop and a NEW Vileda Quick Wring bucket - the wringer is connected to the bucket!

That's much easier than trying to get the wringer to stay on the grey bucket from people, so I threw out the old mop and bucket (along with the slightly wet toilet paper packs from yesterday) when I got home at 4. Later, I went to London Drugs again at 5:55 to get the rest of my bulky purchases: Cottonelle toilet paper x2 and on-sale SpongeTowels Ultra-Strong paper towels! I added two on-sale MAMA spicy shrimp noodles and on-sale NEW Bar Harbor fish chowder cans x2 to that as long as I was using my Royal Bank debit card. I got home at 6:35 on a 407, and I'd better not have any more emergencies in the next ten days!

Since I was up at 8 AM today, it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! I went out at 10:25 on a 407 and was finally able to make it to the Dollar Tree and Big Crazy today on a 403 from Brighouse before it got TOO hot outside! I got a can of Success mushroom pieces, Knorr mashed potatoes in chicken gravy, and Knorr mashed potatoes in beef gravy. (I had to check if I could microwave them first, of course!) I'm thankful to have the option again to purchase frozen food again: pork and tri-treasure x2 / lamb and onion / pork and chives JOY DUMPLINGS from Big Crazy! Inspired by CuyaDK, I also got some Samyang 2x Spicy Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen x4 at Big Crazy, plus Knorr hot and sour soup mix x3 since I was there anyway. I got home at 11:35 on a 407 from London Drugs, which is good. I think I'll wait on ice cream, since I don't care much for the prices or sizes for Häagen-Dazs at London Drugs right now. Of course, I might also change my mind on that, haha.

From Not Always Right: Rebecca Barker Sprang?! Like the past tense of "to spring up"?




From Not Always Right: Krystina Casimir?! I like the last name, although the first name would be better spelled as CHRISTINA.

Hester came by at 4:20 to check the freezer. As I thought, the dumplings did not freeze overnight! Thank goodness I kept that old bag for proof, as she'll NOW call maintenance after the long weekend. I guess I can call Barry on Tuesday, then.

After seeing KFC referenced on Not Always Right, I decided that I had to go out and get some for lunch at 2:10, just managing to get the C94. I got a six-piece combo for $10.50, and the price and quantity was better than what I was expecting! Before that, I went to Indigo Spirit / Chapters to browse, and got Strange History (Bathroom Readers' Institute). I even asked about getting a replacement Plum Rewards card (like I did last time I was there), and actually got one! HA! to the clerk last time who said they didn't have any more physical cards! No, I didn't get a bookmark, but I have plenty of spares here at home. I got home at 3:10 on a 407, and now I want to make a Facebook album devoted to the books I've read or owned. Getting all the book covers will take a while, but Goodreads will make the whole process slightly easier!

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!

Apparently, there was a lunch at the lards' place today, so it was COFFEE TIME before I left at 10 to do some quick shopping at London Drugs: a new coffee mug, new Glacier Speed Stick deodorant to replace my Speed Stick with Irish Spring deodorant from 7 July 2015, new store brand lemon dish detergent, and a new $5 book about 100 animals for Fraser. Luckily, Steph could pick me up from King Edward station! Lisa was at least a little bit late, but that was okay: she said that Steph's ceremony yesterday was moderately boring, but that was okay. We had congee, macaroni and ham, plus Chinese doughnuts for lunch while talking about Auntie Eva / Auntie Paula / Harmony / Ayler / Hiero / Jon and transit / Stanley / Ben and Erin / Daniel and Michelle / their seeing Melia on Wednesday ("we should have invited your sister!"), Darren C. getting married, childhood photos, the old childhood stove and tiny chairs, booking Mom and Dad's flights online, a small dinosaur, Anita T. getting married, Fraser's naptime, nursing, Uncle Percy almost being 100, Auntie Eileen / Auntie Evie, Uncle Eric, and Fraser crying a lot. He seemed to like the book and held my hand when we were going to the elevator (where I lifted him up to reach the CALL CAR button so he could make it light up), at least! (and said "A-ma" a few times) I got home at 4:25 on a 407, which is good. It seems like Mom and Dad are going to Hong Kong and Japan soon, so GOOD FOR MORE ME TIME. Maybe I'll even make it to church, hahaha.

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: a Dignity funeral home mint, a small knitted black-and-white scarf, a small knitted black-and-white toque, a five-pack of Indomie Mi Goreng stir-fried instant noodles which expires on June 5, two Christmas Mix packs of Coconut / Red Apple / Very Cherry / Green Apple Jelly Belly jellybeans, and a five-pack of Wujiang brand preserved vegetables.

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 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.
