Robert Berridge added me to Facebook, but that is fine. Hopefully, he is a sane Canucks fan unlike John D., Brandi, and Siobhan! Chrissy also said she was banned by Facebook - YIKES! At least she is back now! Aaron L. and Chris W. also unfriended me from Facebook after more than TEN YEARS - okay, then! Now I can also unfriend Fosa, Chris's wife.

I called Chrystal at work at 1:30, but she wanted to reschedule for next Friday (March 22), which was fine by me. Work is kicking her ass, and Monday to Thursdays aren't that great for her in terms of dinners these days. She thanked me for being flexible and was apologetic, so that was totally fine. I need a day of downtime after the weekend and mental stress!


From Z 95.3: Here's a Minion! Dear Music, I will never be able to thank you enough for always being there for me.

I discovered that Connie Su had unfriended me on Facebook - okay, then! Those VCEFC and Daniel Fellowship days were a long time ago, but still?! Chrissy just got banned for a month, not unfriended me. Phew! I called Chrystal at work at 11:05 to set up a get-together at the usual place, and March 11 (a Monday) seems to be a good date from a hockey schedule perspective and her own schedule - yay!

From Kenny and Busted Locals: A young woman was pulled over for speeding. A Louisiana State Trooper walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book. She said, "I bet you are going to try to sell me a ticket to the Louisiana Trooper's Ball." He replied, "Louisiana State Troopers don't have balls." There was a moment of silence. He then closed his book, tipped his hat, got back in his patrol car, and left.

Julie got my musical Christmas card and skull stickers today! I called Barry to complain about Hester's harassment, then he called me back at 3:55 to say that the insurance clause was buried in the lease, so I'd have to get it. UGH! I also showered and did laundry tonight.


Julie got my musical hockey Christmas card today! HOCKEY HOLIDAYS! The music is Stompin' Tom Connors' IT'S HOCKEY NIGHT TONIGHT!

There was a fire alarm at about 1 PM, so I threw away fuzzy socks with holes in them, and got proper woolly socks / a thin toque / a winter coat because I thought it was going to be a false fire alarm as usual. Nope, it was actually the first REAL fire scare since I've lived here in 2000! Some idiot neighbor left a plastic baby bottle on the stove, went out at 11, and stuff started burning at 11:30 or so. WHY WOULD YOU NOT CHECK TO SEE THAT THE STOVE IS OFF BEFORE GOING OUT FOR THE DAY?!

Firemen and police and standing around outside in the cold for three hours before we were allowed back in at 3:55 after the fan and air quality... thank goodness that I am okay, as well as my stuff. I guess I should get that Square One insurance! At least it wasn't six hours, but still... the neighbor got back and saw the aftermath including a busted-out balcony, so I hope she learns!

I got a baby girl card for Jason and Vanessa ("KEEP CALM AND CARRY BABY WIPES"), NEW Shasha organic ginger snaps for Vanessa (no sugar?!), 200g of on-sale Ferrero Rocher, 100 store brand bandages, a NEW Carnation variety pack of hot chocolate (TURTLES Canada / Coffee Crisp / After Eight), and NEW Lipton Chicken Noodle Supreme soup from London Drugs, which has just started charging for plastic bags. SO MUCH ON-SALE BLACK PEPPER SALMON JERKY FOR ME AND JIMMY AND JULIE, OH MY! I called Barry at 8:35 AM to tell him about the mouse on the glue trap which I discovered last night. The computer restarted at 6 AM! I called Barry at 9:40 this morning to remind him about going to Rona for a Victor Pest Chaser Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller, which cost $33. I went to the pharmacy next door at 1:50 to refill my prescription early; yes, even Adam commented on it!

I left at 5:55 to get two 3-subject Hilroy notebooks in green and light blue (for home use and road use) from London Drugs, returning home at 6:40 on a late 407. CHOCOLATE AND BATHROOM REPLACEMENTS GALORE AGAIN, and today's date is a palindrome: 8/1/18! Yesterday, Frances C. emailed me to say that she couldn't make it to Felico's because of work, which is fine. I went out at 12 on a 401 so I could buy Campbell's Chunky Soup (Jerk Chicken with Vegetables / Butter Chicken with Vegetables), NESCAFÉ instant coffee (December 16, 2017), a NEW on-sale limited edition Oh Henry! Canada / Oh Henry 4:25 Pop-Up candy bar, barkTHINS snacking dark chocolate with pumpkin seeds for Thanksgiving dinner, NEW limited edition Doritos Late Night Fully-Loaded Nacho chips, and HALLS assorted mint cough drops. I went out at 12:20 on a 414 to do some shopping for on-sale Halloween candy and Advent calendars. COFFEE TIME while I'm still figuring out why Jimmy blocked me instead of just talking to me about what I did...... I should have posed it as a hypothetical a while ago!
glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)
After COFFEE TIME, Mom and Dad picked me up at 12 so we could go to lunch at #9, go to JYSK in Lansdowne, and then go see Uncle Stanley's female associate Sandy on Kingsway and Slocan about my Disability Savings Plan. I heard way more about growth and investments and stock portfolios than I ever thought possible. After they dropped me off at Oakridge Station, I went to the bathroom (where someone said "hey!" when I used the accessible washroom - TOO BAD BECAUSE I NEEDED TO PEE AND CAN USE THAT ONE!) and then bought on-sale Polar Ice Excel gum x3 from Safeway since I forgot about it yesterday. I got home at 4 on a 401, where I saw John Jugovic, who hasn't seemed to change his opinions since 2002 or so. Ah well...


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: a six-pack of 710mL Coca-Cola which expired on July 1, 2017 (no, thanks!) / a 297g package of Fun Size 3 Musketeers which expires in June 2019 / "large" black, blue, and white pants (maybe if you're a literal child...) / a #9 Restaurant lunch of organ noodles and congee (plus some beef chow mein leftovers) / a thin green T and T Supermarket 大統華超級市場 reusable bag / a skeleton and candy corn Ugly Halloween Sweater ("Get Freaky!") and Nordik boots from JYSK Bed Bath Home in Lansdowne Centre, a random wooden pencil, and a random IKEA Richmond map with random notes on the back.


Hey, the MOTHER 3 Mischievous Mole enemy can feel homesick in battle - JUST LIKE NESS IN EARTHBOUND!

"Bob Bobberchuk" added me to Facebook - okay, then! I went to London Drugs again at 4 on a 407 (managing to just get the bus) to mail a note to Jimmy... only $1.26! Also bought on-sale Pacari organic chocolate bars x6: Raw 100% Cacao (orange), Passion Fruit (yellow), 60% Cacao Esmeraldas (pink), Andean Rose (red), Lemongrass (green), Raw 70% Cacao (yellow-green) - $3 each for a 50g bar! Oh well...

I also got NEW on-sale Dare Cookie Dough Whippets which expire on October 30, NEW Oreo Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pie cookies which expire on February 27, 2019 / NEW Oreo Cookies Pistachio Creme Thins cookies which expire on December 2 for National Cookie Month in October, an orange replacement $2 MARTEX washcloth, Palmolive Oxy Power Degreaser dish detergent, Hilroy Press-It-Seal-It envelopes (both white and security envelopes), NEW on-sale Tic Tac Gum x3 (Fresh Mint / Spearmint / Watermelon), and NEW London Naturals Wild Orange plant-based all-purpose cleaner. Got home at 5:05 on a 407, and had lots of peace and quiet. I needed it to edit past entries, grab food photos from Google, and upload them! The Canucks played the Bruins at 7 tonight; the game went to overtime, and the Canucks won 2-1 against the nasty Bruins! BO HORVAT!

I got 400 Mead index cards / on-sale All-Bran cereal which expires on March 22, 2019 / on-sale Hungry Buddha cocoa coconut jerky / GIBSON owl mugs x2 with easy peelable stickers! When I got home at 2:35 on a 407, I found some water-based Wet Light lube from Mike on July 20, 2014 in a drawer! I threw that away after ascertaining that a possible expiry date on the bottom of the blue bottle was MAY 2017! EW!

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME (and confirming that Steph got Lisa's and Henry's birthday cards which I'd mailed them), Mom and Dad picked me up for lunch at 11:30 at Dinesty Dumpling House to have hot and sour soup, white surfboard noodles with choy, and siu long bao. They gave me a lot of unsolicited advice about my life (apparently I don't need a ride to the eye consultation since it's not actual surgery AND just need not to look at screens in order to get rid of my cataract - yeah right!), are still under the impression that Steph is going to Beckett's baby banquet, eye doctors, surgery, technology, and said I could get green grapes on sale at Price Smart. I declined the temptation to go there, especially with my mom, so I got a ride home with Dad at 12:40.


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: A white floor lamp (which Dad at least helped me plug in), a forest green and white bedside lamp with pink roses / flowers, an old toaster, candy canes, a half-bag full of candy conversation hearts, a package of Nutella and Go! pretzels, a Mr. Munchy milk chocolate Easter bunny with rice crisps, a box of 12 Quaker Quick Oats instant oatmeal packets which expire in January 2019, a box of 12 Quaker Regular instant oatmeal packets which ALREADY expired in November 2017, eight double rolls of Purex Ultra 3-Ply toilet paper, a black Stormtech fall / winter jacket which will replace my white zip-up Stormtech fall jacket (it's MORE THAN FINE to throw things out which don't work for me...), a purple Tabi International coat, a handmade (?) purple yarn vest, a light brown Paraphrase petite flowery wool vest, a random white comb (I almost typed BOMB), and $10 cash.

The Canucks played the Oilers at 7 in their very last game of the 2017-2018 NHL season; also the Sedin twins' last NHL game, and Vancouver lost 3-2 in overtime. There was a very emotional sendoff, and the Sedins were named second and third stars. Then there was the Humboldt bus crash yesterday, which is very sad as well. Sigh...

PRODUCT WARNING: I am banning Winter Creek oysters from my place. I can't open them even WITH the jar opener!


Since I now can't open the pesky Winter Creek raw oyster jars even WITH the jar opener, I decided to go return them at Price Smart when I went out at 5:30 on a 407. No, I didn't care if they were marked as waste, customer service person! I'M STILL GOING TO RETURN THEM! While I was there anyway, I got easier-to-open Mac's raw oysters / on-sale Ivory body wash x2 (original and lavender!) / Welch's prune juice (I made sure it could be opened while at the store) / on-sale Five Alive juice. I also went to the bank - and waited for a bit in line - to finally cash Lena's $25 US cheque, which came out to $32.20 in Canadian money, AND it was free for me! Then I went to London Drugs to buy Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa cough syrup x2 (I got the cashier to open them!) and extra-large Ziploc bags x2, getting home at 7 on a 407. Phew!

Last time I bought raw oysters: Fanny Bay raw oysters for $20 (July 26, 2017)

Ivory body washes: Original, Aloe (banned from my apartment because it's slightly irritating for five minutes), Lavender, and Water Lily!

I went to London Drugs on a 401 (just managing to get the bus in the intermittent snowflakes) at 11:55 so I could get one more two-pack of Designer Workshop pillowcases since the half-price sale ends today. I got THE WRONG SIZE - I DON'T NEED KING SIZE! Also got a NEW steak and mushroom melt from Subway, and on-sale Reese's peanut butter and chocolate hearts x3 / a Cambridge cutlery set / rubbing alcohol. After I got home at 12:30 on a 401, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online. I'll shower later at some point.


Edit: I went back out at 3:20 to see if I could return / exchange the king-size pillowcase pack. Thank goodness I could! I bought Alter Eco Pacific organic chocolate x3 (Brown Butter / Salt and Malt / Blackout) for Harmony's birthday, Palmolive Oxy dish detergent, and two properly-sized pillowcases! I got home at 3:50, and it was time for some white tea!

GREEN TEA TIME! I noted that Chinese Eric had called me last night while I was trying to decide about Jimmy (not worth it - I also talked to Helen Y. about things), so I called him back this morning. Auntie answered the phone and we exchanged Chinese New Year greetings once I told her who I was. Then he called me on his lunch break in the afternoon at 1:10; thank goodness I caught it at 1:45! All the snow from last night has melted (yay!), and he asked whether I'd like him to use a Domino's Pizza coupon - of course! We're Asian, after all!

He ended up not coming over (which I figured by 7:35), so I stashed some stuff away for later since I don't want it in my face: I have SOME dignity, after all! It also surprised me that Teunis added me to Facebook again, since I was totally fine with his not following me online last June, and understood why without his having to explicitly say so. We'll probably just be Facebook acquaintances, which I am totally okay with. The Canucks played the Panthers at 7 tonight, and lost 4-3. YOU CAN'T GIVE UP FOUR GOALS IN THE FIRST PERIOD!

I managed to reconstruct the newest Imgur Bad Baby Names album because I'd accidentally deleted it the other day, and also managed to upload all 132 Simpsons mood theme pics and all 132 Homestar Runner mood theme pics to Imgur before redoing the mood themes on both my LJ and Eric Ho's LJ! Thank goodness I'd already saved the pics to my D drive when I first got this computer, because I don't know how long it would have taken if I'd had to save them from Photobucket itself! Then I changed Eric's LJ theme to the Default AIR one because the old one had too-small font for me now, even if I like the concept of white text on a dark background. ACCOMPLISHMENT AHOY!
