Paulo and I were trying to figure out where everyone else wanted to meet, so eventually I said "fuck it - let's meet somewhere nearby." The hospital Starbucks it was! We just managed to get the 407 at Alderbridge after ascertaining that everyone now wanted to meet at House of Dosas on Kingsway; like we were saying, we don't care if people want to do something later, JUST PICK A LOCATION TO MEET! After Paulo went on ahead at Brighouse (the elevator took a while), I got on the next train and checked my text messages. We figured out what had happened and set up King Edward as a meeting place. He did apologize ("my bad") and explained, so of course I accepted that.

We finally made it to the House of Dosas at about 6:20 and met Holly, Brian, and Darryl. I had a lamb vindaloo dosa while Paulo added a buttermilk lassi to his dinner; when we heard that he hadn't eaten all day, I said that he should have walked over to my place for some instant noodles! No, that wasn't a joke! I did PM him my address when I got home just in case. We talked about cricket, virginity, porn stars, Halloween, Good Friday / Easter, Direct Tap, a new job, a casual stress-free work culture, and maybe doing something later. It was a good time, and I did like my spicy lamb vindaloo dosa!

Later, Brian drove us to the Dark Manor on Fraser Street. It was so fucking dark in there that I couldn't see a damn thing. Luckily, I waited near the washrooms and Holly actually came out. Brian tapped a bar stool, so at least I knew where that was. There was a Zombie drink where you could only order two of them (Brian thought that was a gimmick), there was a communal huge bowl of alcohol with LONG drinking straws (SHARE OUR BACKWASH!), we needed candlelight to read the menu, and we watched Paulo and Darryl get progressively more wasted on the one Zombie drink. I did have some of Brian's beer when he offered. After that, I wasn't in the mood to drink more, so when Brian asked if I wanted to, I said no. He ended us dropping us all off at home, by the car, or near Marine Drive Station. Talked about zero-waste, weekend plans, seeing family, Jeremy being so wasted that he couldn't get home himself (and then having to pay a fine and get his car back from a towing place the next day), Garden and Nanaimo (near the old VCEFC!), and hanging out again tomorrow at the music bingo. (I declined) I got in at 8:40.

The Canucks played the Ducks at 7:30 tonight, and lost 1-0... Anaheim ended up winning their first home game in TWO MONTHS, with a rookie goalie and a new coach!


From the r/Canucks Discord server: Kaapo Kakko?! FUN! It is his birthday today, too - what a coincidence!

I went out at 2 on a 414 to see Rachel at the Caring Place, and got home at about 3:50. Now there's going to be no water on Thursday?! Damn construction and sewer upgrades, haha!


From Julie: When you discover what your cat is really doing up all night making noises... here's a witchy cat inside a pentacle, probably doing incantations! WITCHY BLACK CAT!

It's Talk Like A Pirate Day today! The Canucks played the Flames at 7 in their second game of the 2018-2019 training camp tonight, and lost 4-1... the empty-netter didn't help!


From Youtube: Speaking of place names as human names… FLORIDA EDWARDS?!

I was NOT impressed with the JOY dumplings freezing into huge unmanageable blocky clumps, so I had to throw those clumps out. Unfortunately, Hester was there and told me that it wasn't allowed to throw it out in the dumpster. Whatever, I can do what I want. I had to walk it to the bus stop and throw it out there before walking back.


Dr. Pitt Derryberry?!




From Julie: Myron?! That's a boy, not a girl.




From Julie: Charity?!




From Julie: Latreice?!




From Julie: Dewaysha?!

It's 8:01 PM (20:01 in 24-hour time) on September 11! YAY FOR TIME QUIRKINESS AND COINCIDENCES! :D


From Reddit on June 3, 2016: No, Faith, we do not give our official abusive exes "one last great kiss with tongue" when we're splitting our items post-breakup. You also have a gambling problem ($10,000 in debt to eBay?!) and addiction issues! While those can be fixed / resolved, I hope you never contact your ex again.




From Reddit on July 6, 2017: No, Worried19, cuckolding is not sexist or racist. I'm not a fan of fetishes, but you have some really weird opinions about gender and other things as well, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

"You Are the Judicial Branch"




You have a well-developed sense of right and wrong, but you are always open to changing your mind about the details.
You have a very rational mind. You never judge until you learn all of the facts and context for something.

You are good at seeing issues in full. You can hold a lot of details in your head at once, and you're able to organize chaos.
You aren't an overly emotional person, and you can see when people are arguing from emotion. You can step back and assess without passion.







From Ben and Tumblr: Mail and email ten years ago in 2001 vs. mail and email now in 2011, when this was created.




From Reddit: Grim Vermeiren is from Flanders or Belgium?!

Marvin Gay plays basketball?!

[livejournal.com profile] lilaznffairy421 and I have decided to see if we can reach the maximum number of comments on a post, which is currently set at 5000. (I guess the previous limit of 60,000-something was way too much.. probably caused the servers to crash, burn, and explode!)

We're not members of [livejournal.com profile] _commentwhores, so no worries there. If you want to help us reach that comment limit on this post, go ahead! (I thought of not allowing anyone else to comment, but that didn't promote a spirit of togetherness)

It will be interesting to see how long this takes, so the post will be dated. Whoever first leaves a comment, please date it. If we ever get to 5000 on the post, date the last one if you remember!

Leave any comments you like on any topic, but remember: I have full veto power, and I can delete anything I choose to. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *evil grin*

By the way: please include a subject line when starting a new thread in the comments section. It makes my job of sifting through emails so much easier. :D


Edit on Wednesday, 2 February 2005 @ 10:50 PM We're done! Yay! :D For Farrah's friends who want to see this for themselves, it's now public. ;)

Edit on Tuesday, 31 May 2011 @ 8:05 PM [livejournal.com profile] matt1993 wants to get this up to the newer limit of 10,000 comments.
