The Canucks played Columbus at 7 tonight, and lost 5-0 for a dubious record of ten shutouts this season so far, which is the most in the NHL.

Brian picked me up at about 9 last night from the hospital's main entrance, but I had to take a gigantic huge detour because the construction had blocked off the sidewalks right by my place AGAIN! (going through the parking lot and then find the sidewalk by the pharmacy and then cross THREE crosswalks to get to the hospital) He had joked that it would be like Little Iraq trying to get to my place, and this was about right. The chill get-together was for Paulo's 27th birthday, so of course I was going to come out and meet him. Things were fine until we tried finding Fremlin, but I eventually called Holly (who doesn't have a buzzer system or an elevator in her apartment building?!) when Brian eventually found it. She said that she was going to throw her keys down to us, probably because she was tired of going up and down the stairs for everyone else!

When Brian finally figured out the front door lock (the one in my building is recalcitrant as well), we went upstairs to Holly's suite. We met Paulo, and said hi to Holly and Darryl. Talked about bartending, gin and tonic, red wine, beers, smoking (always someone's choice), travel (Jordan and Egypt and Australia), the leftover pizza with pepperoni and sausage, online people in the other Discord server, Gastown, awful dates, hyphenated names, feminism, the 407, friends being in abusive relationships, weird names like Jesus Condom, the closed sidewalks around my place, (looking for) work, Long Island Iced Teas, (video) interviews, San Francisco, Montreal, fudge Oreos, and my Korean BBQ Kettle chips. Of course I let Holly keep them! Turns out that Paulo lives two minutes from me, which is always good just in case. I let Brian drop me off at Birchwood instead of Dogwood, but I was still with it enough to figure out where I was since things looked different. Got in at midnight, which is fine. Good times with FREEDOM!

Chinese Eric and white Eric had both emailed me this morning. Eric H. is still up for his birthday hangout at Boston Pizza this Saturday the 18th around 1 PM for the BC Lions game, and Eric M. said that Boston Pizza was better than Italian Tomato for hanging around for three hours to watch the game.


A Muppets / Kermit the Frog reference in the FINAL FANTASY V ADVANCE town of Walse. "It's easy being green, dig?" That reminded me of Jimmy when I used to talk to him. He was always saying, "you dig?"

I woke up to NO WATER PRESSURE AT ALL at 7:30 AM, with NO NOTICES about it! NOT ACCEPTABLE! I very politely called Hester at 8:45 AM, who said that it was an emergency for the whole building, and that it should be fixed then. I tested it out using both sinks and the toilet, and it seemed that way... PHEW! After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I bought NEW Bassili's Best shepherd's pie which expires in 2020, NEW Mott's Clamato Caesar Pickled Bean Caesar tomato juice, on-sale V8 tomato juice (CHILDHOOD MEMORIES!), an on-sale beef teriyaki bowl which expires tomorrow (hey, at least they had the good sense to discount it, unlike with the spicy pig ears last week...), Shin Ramyun BLACK noodles, Vedan spicy mushroom noodles, on-sale Ben & Jerry's ice cream x6 (Cherry Garcia / Chocolate Fudge Brownie / Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough / Chocolate Therapy / If I Had 1,000,000 Flavors / Half-Baked), CLR for the kitchen (beats going to the bathroom for it every single time...), and JOY dumplings x4.

Also bought Nongshim Korean claypot miso ramyun noodles, on-sale NEW Lemon-Lime Gatorade x6, on-sale Western Family perogies x2 (potatoes and cottage cheese / potatoes and cheddar cheese), NEW on-sale Western Family vanilla Greek yogurt, on-sale Kozy Shack tapioca pudding, NEW Late July mild Green Mojo tortilla chips, on-sale Silk almond milk, NEW Hua Diao Chinese cooking wine noodle soup, replacement Club House coarse grind black pepper (I'm not sure how old the current one is...), NEW Sichuan Bahia broad vermicelli chili oil noodles, NEW Shirakiku Goku-Uma ramen noodles, and more! I got that guy Ray as my cashier - nice! After that, I paid my Shaw bill online at home.

After I went to Brighouse library this morning (where Facebook thought I was in Whistler, and more annoyingly, a random Asian auntie thought I could use up my precious computer time to look around for HER random papers - and also thought that my index cards from home were her papers!), I walked from there to London Drugs. I bought 200 Mead index cards, two pairs of Secret slightly thick black bamboo socks, and two pairs of Secret black bamboo thin socks to replace the one with holes in it before getting home at 1:15 on a 401, where I assumed Hester and her suite inspection had already come by.

At 6, I called Eric to remind him about possibly coming over tonight to fix the computer monitor situation. He said he could swing by after work, which is lucky for me. I then crammed in dinner and a shower before he called again at 7 to say that he'd be here in half an hour. At 7:35, he called again to say that he was here. He did some unplugging and plugging, and asked about the laptop as well. Eventually, he said that he thought both of my computer monitors were dead, and that if I reminded him in a couple of weeks, he could look around for a new(er) PC for me since this one from Dylan's brother-in-law is getting pretty old (I didn't even ask!), AND he could take the monitor to electronic recycling for me! After he tinkered around a little more (and expressed astonishment that someone would actually trust Jim Benning), he somehow got one of the monitors to work by doing some more unplugging and plugging it back in again. He definitely deserved a Green and Black's Dark Chocolate Peppermint Oil bar in addition to my verbal thanks! I caught up with messages, and noticed that Terry Cheng had unfriended / blocked me on Facebook. Whatever! I don't care!


When Lucas and Boney talk to this stray dog in MOTHER 3 after Ionia explains the Needles to them, he says: "When you hang around sheep as a stray dog, you start to feel more like a pet dog."




After Lucas and Boney put on their pig masks inside the MOTHER 3 Chimera Lab, they check out this basket. "A bunch of yucky laundry is inside here."




When Lucas and Boney refuse to save their MOTHER 3 game with this save frog inside the Chimera Lab bathroom, he says: "For frogs inside bathrooms, the sky is rectangular and small. But no saving for you, huh?"

After COFFEE TIME and the fire inspection / "Terminix pest control" with Hester, I left at 2:45 for Jon's with the Crunchy Raspberry / Crunchy Mint / Crunchy Raspberry M and Ms for Harmony, plus the dessert chocolate. I bought a BBQ pork bun from Kam Do Bakery, of course. I got to the house at about 3:25, and they were definitely home because I heard fussing from inside. The kids were eating the last of a snack, and Jon's student Kayla came in just a minute after me. The boys were okay for the most part, but still had volume issues. Hiero told me that the tiny playing cards were from the doctor, and Ayler said "that is that" when I asked him what my San Francisco shirt said. Jon called him out on that, and also on his telling me to guess whether he went to school today. Ayler climbed on me and wanted to get my hat - NO! Hiero wanted to drive his truck on me - okay, I guess so.

One huge burrito plus 1/4 of Hiero's AND half of his black bean burger was more than enough for dinner! (plus Ayler's leftover peppers and tomatoes from snacktime) We talked about reading and writing, Hiero knowing the concept and word of "exhaustion," Hiero drawing "a delicate maze," the new baby, Harmony going to Dragon Ball for some well-deserved bubble tea, Ayler changing teachers, Ayler drawing a monster, Ayler knowing how to read the word "flowers," and Harmony thanking me for all the chocolate. No, I didn't want any as I had quite a lot at home! (I ate one piece for dessert when I got home at 7:40 on a 407, before brushing my teeth)


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: assorted washed cutlery, 3/4 of a bag of Old Dutch ripple chips that expired three days ago (with a rubber band around it, but still... I have enough junk food as it is!), two Good In Every Grain zipper pulls in the tiniest Ziploc bags ever (a sandwich bag would be just fine next time), and $5 cash.

Vanessa told me that my birthday card arrived at her place - nice!


Should've = should have! NOT "should of." Make the pain from grammatically incorrect posts stop!!!
