THERE WAS ANOTHER WATER SHUTOFF TODAY - NOT IMPRESSED! After I had COFFEE TIME and fielded an early-morning phone call from Megan at the Burrard eye clinic (Dr. Wise wants to see me this week to check her lens choice?! Friday it is...), Barry picked me up at 11 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got bananas, on-sale Silk vanilla almond milk, on-sale Nissin noodles x4 (XO Sauce / seafood / black garlic oil / sesame oil), Koka Noodles x2 (Spicy Black Pepper / Tomato), on-sale Uncle Ben's rice x3 (Smokey Flavor / Tomato and Herb / Mushroom Wild rice), MAGGI LETUP / Maggi Kari Letup noodles, and one litre of NEW on-sale Yamasa soy sauce which expires in late October 2020 (I was able to pull off the annoying tab in the store!) / NEW Allen's Vinegar 500 mL of malt vinegar (crammed with the white vinegar and red vinegar on the Western side of Price Smart) / 700 grams of on-sale Laoganma spicy chili crisp oil for DUMPLING SAUCE! (my jar opener thankfully worked on that when I got home!)

Also bought on-sale Brookside Chocolate x2 (Blackberry and Honey / Pomegranate), NEW on-sale Peace Tea cans x2 (Sno-Berry / Mango Green Tea), Lucky Me! Mami Beef Noodles, one Stouffer's Sauté Sensations microwaveable meal (Grilled Chicken Teriyaki), Western Family frozen veggies in the BIG bag, NEW Olympic Dairy small yogurt tubs x3 (Fig Honey / Citrus Cardamom / Smoked Applewood Vanilla - each 325 grams), Puritan canned Irish stew, on-sale JOY dumplings x5 for the Big Crazy price of $4.99 per bag (the last five available - Pork and Vegetable x2 / Lamb and Onion x2 / Pork and Chive), NEW on-sale Tropical Salsa Kettle Chips, and on-sale mint Oreo cookies. I think I'm looking forward to all the snack food! Haha!

Additional purchases: On-sale Old Dutch Humpty Dumpty cheese sticks (Habanero and Blue Cheese!), on-sale Excel spearmint Soft Chew gum x3, on-sale Western Family bottled water x12 (gotta keep ahead of all these sudden and unexpected water shutoffs around here lately...), Ben and Jerry's Moophoria ice cream x2 (Peanut Butter Cookie Dough to replace the one that Paulo ate last week on Thursday even though he says he owes me / NEW Caramel Cookie Fix), NEW on-sale Hardbite chips x3 (Sweet Ghost Pepper / Avocado and Lime / Black Sea Salt), NEW on-sale Ruffles Flaming Hot BBQ chips, and NEW Campbell's Everyday Gourmet Asparagus and Sweet Basil soup. I got Ray as my cashier, and Barry made a comment about how it took me two hours at the store. I wasn't expecting to take 20 minutes to find the malt vinegar, no thanks to some employees there! After I got home at 12:55, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online. Then I waited out the water shutoff - it was back on by 5:30, THANK GOODNESS!

After COFFEE TIME, I had to get ready to leave by 11 for Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot at Lansdowne for a lunch with Mom and Dad. Fatty beef, lamb shoulder, Napa cabbage, white noodles, tofu, yams, vegetable and pork dumplings, deep-fried chicken wings, cod fillets, shrimp balls, beef balls, fish balls, tiger prawns, broth, an iced sour plum drink, and tea! Mom complained that they had seen bus stops around my place - yeah, but that doesn't mean they are in service right now! Dad "helped" with my phone's data and wifi settings. Yes, I know Harmony's family birthday is the 10th somewhere. I'll confirm things with Jon in a few days; no need to rush and be impatient about things! They dropped me off at London Drugs, so I walked home and got in at 12:45.

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: $10 cash, Maggi Masala Indian instant noodles x2 which have already expired as of February 3, Nosh and Co. Munch Madness cheddar and sour cream chips, GIM roasted seasoned seaweed x10, a Want Want gift pack (a box of strawberry Lovely Puffs / five small bags of orange QQ Gummies / a box of round chocolate sticks / a bag of milk candy), No Name chicken instant noodle packages x6, No Name chicken cup noodles, Paldo (팔도 (Paldo)) hot and spicy cup noodles, a package of Nissin chicken instant noodles x5, a packet of Wing's Foods hot chili sauce, President's Choice ginger-peach teabags x18, and organic Nighty Night Traditional Relaxation Teas teabags x4.

I had COFFEE TIME after a useless morning trip to London Drugs for a specific set of Sharpies, but I did see Roberta while wasting my time. Barry picked me up at 1 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got "free" store brand bottled water x12 thanks to it being on the bottom of the shopping cart, bananas, two $2-off Carlton Cards birthday cards with a coupon, NEW on-sale Earth's Own oat milk, on-sale Earth's Own almond milk, red / blue / black Sharpies x6, on-sale Campbell's soup x5 (New England Clam Chowder x4 and Baked Potato with Bacon), on-sale Olympic Dairy yogurt x2 (Strawberry and French Vanilla), on-sale Knorr Sidekicks x8 (Garlic Butter with Lemon / Creamy Chicken Fusilli x2 / Honey Garlic Noodles / Teriyaki Noodles / White Cheddar with Broccoli / Homestyle Cheddar / Three-Cheese), Stouffer’s Sauté Sensation microwaveable meals x2 (Grilled Chicken Teriyaki / Country Beef Pot Roast), on-sale Uncle Ben's rice x3 (Smokey Beans / Cilantro and Lime / Tomato and Herb), and Kung Tak Lam vegetarian mushroom noodles.

I discovered redrum last night - UGH! After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got on-sale Uncle Ben's rice x3 (Mushroom / Tomato and Herb / Jambalaya), Nissin black garlic oil noodles / BulJjamppong Korean beef seafood noodles / Paldo Volcano Chicken noodles / Nongshim Kamja Tang Myun rich potato noodles, NEW on-sale Charlotte's holiday butter cookies ($2 more for 430 grams vs. 340 grams for Royal Dansk), on-sale toys for Hiero's birthday presents where the original price even beats the Amazon price (EMOJI MOVIE Memory matching card game / Mega Bloks Smash Stunt Zeg truck), on-sale Cottonelle toilet paper x2, on-sale spearmint Dentyne gum, and Hainanese chicken which expires on the 23rd.

I also got NEW Oikos pineapple Greek yogurt, NEW Danone Oikos Lemon Meringue Creations Greek yogurt, JOY dumplings x6 (Lamb and Onion / Tri-Treasure / Pork and Chive / Pork and Vegetable), on-sale Liberté Skyr Icelandic-style yogurt x3 (plain / raspberry / vanilla bean - so I don't have to go all the way to Superstore for it right now!), soft Chips Ahoy cookies (original and peanut butter), on-sale Campbell's Chunky Soup (Chicken Sausage Gumbo and Creamy Chicken Noodle), and on-sale unsweetened Silk almond milk. We had to go back to Coast Capital (discussing Joy Division and the Clash and hockey fights) because my debit card came up with a "CAN'T PROCESS" error at the store! Ugh! At least I LUCKILY had the $180 cash to pay for my purchases, but STILL! This is a new card from late JULY, too! Bonus: The bank teller's name was HARSHDEEP!

After that, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online at home. Then I got a Christmas photo card from Janet S. (ghost_light) and Christmas presents and stuff from Julie in a bubble-wrap envelope! A Christmas card with stickers, red and pink CHRISTMAS HOUSE penguin socks, a fun and fuzzy JOT ballpoint pen, Women Daredevils: Thrills, Chills, and Frills (Julie Cummins / Cheryl Harness), eight sticker sheets (Christmas glitter / wild animals / truck stickers which Ayler and Hiero would probably stick all over the floor if I gave it to them / five more assorted sheets), two fun and encouraging little notebooks ("You can do this!" / "Best day ever!"), and a penguin pouch of Cappuccino For You! Eric Ho also finally emailed me back, saying that with his current work schedule, the 27th is the only date that could work for a hockey hangout before the new year. Well, at least he'll keep me posted!

After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got on-sale Western Family hot chili con carne, on-sale Silk (dark chocolate) almond milk x2, NEW on-sale Gold Peak Tea x5 (Lemon / Peach / Unsweetened Iced Tea / Green Tea / Raspberry), NEW on-sale 壽桃 Sau Tao Abalone rice vermicelli (which thankfully works in the microwave!), and on-sale Sau Tao Mustard Green Duck rice vermicelli.

After that, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online at home. The Canucks played Arizona at 7 tonight, and lost 4-1. TOO MANY TURNOVERS AND SHORT-HANDED OR EMPTY-NET GOALS!

After COFFEE TIME, Eric M. picked me up at 5 so we could go to Golden Spring Restaurant (near the old VCEFC church site) for Beckett's baby banquet. Unfortunately, I forgot his birthday Lindt Excellence dark chocolate bars (Madagascar / Pink Peppercorn) and birthday card on the way out the door, despite leaving a note for myself. I guess I'll have to give it to him at the Felico's dinner like he wanted. UGH! At least he can give me a ride to that one! We talked about his first hockey practice today, his first game on Wednesday, there being a good reason why Steph / Lisa / Fraser / Henry weren't here this weekend, Highway 99, Steveston, and more.

We had seafood soup, sweet and sour pork, chicken, fish, yee mein, red bean soup, jellyfish, Chinese cold cuts, seafood soup, tea, and more for dinner - I got to take leftovers home, too! Dad thought he had to remind me to say hi to Mom, Uncle Richard, Auntie Gloria, Pastor Fulton, Auntie Teresa, Auntie May, Uncle Anthony, Uncle Andre and his wife Anna, Uncle Joe, Auntie Wing Yee, Auntie Vivian (who said that she missed me and wondered where I'd been "hiding"), Uncle Eric, Auntie Brenda, and their other friends. No, I just wanted to get settled first! I did say hi to Holly, Peter, Evander, and Everett when they got there, of course.

When Auntie Catherine got there, we caught up a little later - she remembered my birthday in September as "a special time," and wanted us to get together. She said that Frances is getting baptized next week - ha ha ha, good luck with that! (from what Ellen tells me...) I'm probably not going to go for THAT service, but did personally tell Jon that I would be willing to go to Beckett's baby baptism service if VCEFC ever got around to organizing one. Auntie Catherine also would be willing to meet me in RICHMOND (!) on Saturday the 15th, and maybe invite a friend my age. Okay, then! As long as it's not about religion AGAIN...

I taught Ayler about Talk Like A Pirate Day since he was wearing a pirate T-shirt. He asked what people did for that, and how he could celebrate; he eventually figured that he could wear his shirt and say "Arr, matey!" like I suggested. Good ideas! He did ask about my skin scars, but I told him that it was my choice to make boundaries about my body, just like him. Later, he refused to ask my reasonable question about how Grade 1 was so far; then he didn't want me to see the time on Eric's watch, so he covered it up. Okay, then. I did say hi to Hiero, but Harmony was wearing Beckett all evening, probably to prevent people from taking photos.

Nathan, Jeremy, Randal, Caleb, Rebecca, Jon, Harmony, Eric, and I talked about Batman / Quentin Tarantino / Twitch streams / my new glasses and upcoming eye surgery / my Felico's celebration (Jeremy and Nathan say they'll confirm later) / Danielle travelling these days / FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL / learning to ride bikes from Ron and Veronica / CRAZY RICH ASIANS / JOY LUCK CLUB / Kendrick Lamar / some guy named Danny Miller / addiction issues / rappers / the weird Asian shows on the TV, which Harmony did NOT feel the need to ask the staff to turn off / counting the courses. We saw Alan and Tracy with their kid Noah, so waved at them on their way out of the restaurant. I wished Myles a happy early birthday while saying hi to him, Brittney, and Naomi. Then Eric had to wait a few more minutes while I said bye to everyone that I knew... oh well.

Eric dropped me off at 8:40, which is still pretty good. Time to relax now! Oh wait, Mom wants Jon to choose the location of my birthday dinner AGAIN - yeah, I'm not putting up with that this year. Let ME pick the damn restaurant, although at least the Oakridge area on a Monday afternoon is better than Commercial Drive with Sunday bus schedules! Not saying I'll never go to Commercial Drive, but NOT at the behest of another person ON MY ACTUAL BIRTHDAY! No, I'm not feeling guilty about that. She tried calling me twice, but I was NOT in the mood for yet more social interaction. That's the true introvert nature!


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: $20 cash (making up for yesterday's pizza plus a little more), an old one-litre Proctor-Silex water boiler (half the size of my current one), a pair of white socks, a pair of pink-and-white candy toe socks, and 200 sheets of Hilroy lined paper.

glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)
After COFFEE TIME, I left at 2 on a 401 to make it to Jon's by 2:30 or so. Ayler asked me whether I brought chocolate this time - nope, because I chose not to, despite what he said about how that wasn't true. He also told me that Jon said I had to fill up their bath water later - I DON'T THINK SO! We made it to Sunrise for skating lessons, with slightly more time to get the kids ice-ready. Harmony and I talked about the baby, Portland, Squamish, Nathan, family, the cute kids on the ice, my toilet book, and how it takes an equal amount of time to leave the house and get ready as it does to have the half-hour lesson. Got home to have fish cakes, lime, laksa noodles, leftover pizza, cherries, and a green melon smoothie with some seeds for dinner. Hiero said that the toy trains were diaper trains, said that Bambi started "fire-burning" by kicking people, and wanted me to read LILY AND TROOPER to him. Ayler just wanted to "show Hiero a trick," which I was 99% sure involved taking my hat off, so I said that I wouldn't read to him if that was the case.

I talked to baby Beckett in his crib when he was being fussy, and later held him for about ten minutes in the rocking chair after doing the dinner dishes. No, Ayler was not allowed to wake him up when he'd just fallen asleep. Harmony had gone to the lards' place briefly to measure stuff after a few people all came at once to view their place - one party was rather late! Jon asked about next week, but I wasn't quite sure with my eventual vision issues. Maybe I can get Barry to drop me off at Oakridge that day... I got home at 8:25 on a 407 because I read bedtime stories to the kids before leaving. Harmony got home again just a bit before I did, actually.

After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got NEW spicy shrimp (EAT THE TAILS!), hot and spicy pork stomach (they should discount it if it expires tomorrow!), Wu-Ham duck necks, on-sale Clorox wipes x2, on-sale Oasis juice x4, $1 Sidekicks x14 (Garlic Butter with Lemon / Tomato Alfredo / Honey Garlic Noodles / Creamy Chicken Fusilli / Teriyaki Noodles / White Cheddar and Broccoli / Chicken pasta / Country Mushroom rice / Mexican Rice / White Cheddar with Queso rice / Homestyle Cheddar / Three Cheese pasta / Chicken Fried Rice), on-sale Healthy Choice microwaveable Power Bowls (Korean-Inspired Beef / Chicken Sausage and Barley / Adobo Chicken / Cuban-Inspired Pork), on-sale JOY dumplings x4 (Lamb and Onion / Pork and Chive / Pork and Tri-Treasure / Pork and Vegetable... saves me a trip to Big Crazy for the same price!), on-sale $1 store brand canned mixed beans x10, on-sale Olympic yogurt x2 (strawberry Krema / black cherry Krema), and on-sale Western Family blueberry-pomegranate Greek yogurt.

Also got on-sale Imperial margarine, on-sale Premium Gomtang beef noodles x2, on-sale Bul Jjampong Korean noodles x2, an on-sale KitKat Espresso Biscuit and Ganache bar, on-sale store brand Parmesan cheese, on-sale Authentica World Cuisine pasta sauce x2 (Arrabiata / Puttanesca), on-sale Catelli seashell pasta, on-sale store brand CLR, on-sale Del Monte lychee juice, Crave microwaveable meals x2 (Pulled Pork and Spicy Sweet Potatoes / Lasagna Alfredo with Bacon and Sausage), store brand mango lemonade, store brand raspberry lemonade, and a free apple from Barry! After that, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online at home. Wow, I spent about $405 today!

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!

The computer restarted at 6 AM! I went out to Shoppers Drug Mart at 1:20 on a 407, and bought on-sale Marketplace Cuisine meals (Butternut Squash Ravioli / Tortilla Crusted Fish / Vermont white macaroni and cheese / Sesame Chicken), on-sale canola oil, on-sale President's Choice milk chocolate eggs for Chrystal. Then I went to London Drugs for Easter chocolate which was more to my taste: on-sale Russell Stover chocolate bunnies (marshmallow / peanut butter / crispy), an on-sale Ferrero Rocher chocolate squirrel, an on-sale Aero chocolate lamb, an on-sale Smarties chocolate egg, on-sale M&M peanut butter chocolate eggs, on-sale Reese's mini peanut butter cups, and Lindt chocolate carrots! Got home at 2:20 on another 407 in the windy weather, so had some hot chocolate while throwing things away and cutting the tops off the PEPPA PIG sticker sheets for Fraser so they could actually fit in a fucking envelope.

At 11:10, I called Chrystal at work to see if we could set up a hangout time. Next Friday (the 6th) at 7:30 works for me! Then I went to Richmond Centre at 1 on a 407 to Kam Do Bakery for a slice of black forest cake, since it's National Black Forest Cake Day today. My next stop was Big Orange so I could get some mango bubble tea. Then I went to Payless Shoes so I could get NEW SNEAKERS because my current ones ALWAYS come untied, and it's very annoying! I also went to the dollar store, where I found FINDING NEMO and PEPPA PIG stickers: perfect for Fraser! Also bought a Canada shotglass, a Canucks decal, and a Canadian beaver magnet for souvenir purposes when Jimmy comes to Vancouver sometime. After getting off a 407 at 2:05, I went to the pharmacy next door to get my prescription. I was the youngest customer in there by at least 30 to 35 years!

I called Barry at 8:35 AM to tell him about the mouse on the glue trap which I discovered last night. When he came by at 11:15, he said that it was STILL MOVING! We both heard it squeak, so I wanted him to just take it out of here as fast as possible. I left for Jon's at 2:40 today after DOUBLE COFFEE TIME (stopping by Kam Do Bakery for a BBQ pork bun) with the Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper chips, Ragusa Noir chocolate bar, heart-shaped Ferrero Rocher chocolates, Harmony's early birthday card, and the Alter Eco Burnt Caramel / Salt and Malt / Blackout / Brown Butter chocolate bars. (she thanked me for it later - Jon said his face would melt off with all those chips!) I had to wait a few minutes for them to get home from school, and Ayler immediately wanted to show me his "100 Days of School" pasta craft and something else. He's definitely learning to write and to draw flowers!

They played with toy trains, read Robert Munsch and other books, ate hummus / banana bread / seashell pasta (they could NOT have my white wine or spicy green sauce with white beans), discussed his field trip to the Orpheum to see a symphony and STAR WARS, and Ayler showed me his school break schedule to ask about the dates and what they meant. I think Ayler can read simple words on his own now, which is great! I also did some dishes while giving the kids some (diluted) orange juice and more banana bread. Later, Ayler tried to walk acrobat-style on top of the couch, and Hiero wanted to go jump on the mattress that they were giving away - NO! Ayler made a "Snot Construction Zone" out of his red Chinese gelatinous dessert of leen-goh, and Hiero said, "If you eat a people, you will go to jail for a long time [reasonable] and [my parents] will go too! [HUH?]" HAHAHAHA! Jon did put Hiero in a box, though! I got home at 8 on a 407, which is pretty par for the course!

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!

While I was at London Drugs, I mailed that KEEP CALM AND BUY BABY WIPES card to Jason and Vanessa, a birthday card with stickers for Fraser to Steph, and Jimmy's pretty early birthday card while he's still in my good books. Then I got home at 3:25 to an AWESOME email from Chinese Eric, who hopes to hang out before Chinese New Year, and says it's been a bit busy at work. Ha, definitely understandable! I told Jon that I could be there tomorrow at 4:45-5, which definitely works with his teaching schedule!

From the Shoppers Drug Facebook wall on Nov. 6, 2017: Hanukkah and Chanukah are both valid spellings of that holiday, and I learned that in elementary school at least 30 years ago!

After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got Bah Kut tea noodles, Fat Choy broken straw mushrooms x2, on-sale store brand perogies x2 (potato with cheddar cheese / potato with cottage cheese), 32 Christmas cards spread out over two boxes (one set had a cat on the front with a Santa hat / the other one had a snowman with a scarf and robins!), NEW limited-edition Nutmeg and Cinnamon Triscuits, on-sale store brand mango juice x2, on-sale store brand orange juice x2, and on-sale Original Sapporo Ichiban noodles. Also purchased on-sale Chunky Soup x10 (NEW Texas-Style BBQ Beef / NEW Baked Potato with Bacon / NEW Creamy Chicken Noodle / Seafood Chowder / Chicken Noodle Soup x2 / Chicken à La King / Beef / Chicken Vegetable Pot Pie / New England Clam Chowder), GOOD TASTE dumplings (Beef and Vegetable / Cabbage and Pork / Cabbage and Chicken), on-sale Sidekicks (Garlic Butter with Lemon / Mexican Rice / Tomato Alfredo / Singapore Curry Noodles / Honey Garlic Noodles / White Cheddar Queso), and on-sale Silk almond milk.

Then I convinced Barry to go to the London Drugs so I could try returning the useless American Greetings Christmas cards - they're STOCKING STUFFER SIZE, not mailing size! SUCCESSFUL RETURN! I got home at 1:10, which is surprising. Noticed that the Rosemary and Olive Oil Smartfood Delight popcorn was already expired as of the 21st, so I had to throw it away with the rest of the trash and detritus after trying a bit. Then I noticed that one of the chicken noodle soup cans was dented, so I had to consume that right away as well. UGH!

The Canucks played Pittsburgh at 7 last night, and I later found out that they won 4-2. I left at 8:25 in order to get the bus on time to make the trek to the Shark Club, which Sabrina said was right across the street from Stadium-Chinatown Skytrain station. Her idea of "right across the street" must be different than mine because I had to walk a couple of blocks from the station. I couldn't even get into the Shark Club when I finally got there since they were at capacity because of a UFC fight. I saw plenty of people from a BC Lions game and the Canucks game, but not the people I was looking for. I went back in again a while later, and heard my name being called. It was Brad, whom I at least know if not like a lot, so that was a relief anyway. He hadn't seen Kathy or Aaron, but soon got a message saying they'd just got to Stadium. I was fine with following everyone inside when they got there, and of course Eve and John were there already! I could have gone in there beforehand, but didn't want to go against the bouncer's wishes.

Plenty of hugging, some photos, "I love you," and yelling to be heard over everything else! I got a Long Island Iced Tea on Eve's account (ASIAN RED-FACE GENE!), but it later turned out that Brad paid for the entire table anyway. Kathy and Aaron left for some reason, maybe having to do with this (homeless?) guy named Sebastian that was with them. John SPILLED Brad's red wine all over me by accident, so Eve took me to the washroom area and blotched it with cold water. She said to soak it in lukewarm water to get the tannin out when I got home, but I didn't trust that, so did it with cold water instead. Talked about Burnaby, having a phone, addresses, Tammy Milosh the bitch, "you and Brad should date!" (no!), his usage of "cunt," my not leaving CRIMINALS, and a plastic bag for my soaked item. I finally left after midnight, got confused as to where I was going (left and right and up and down were not right in my head), actually went on the Georgia Viaduct, and finally got weird directions from a Hagelin fan, and real directions from the bouncer at the door. Luckily, I got what was probably the last train to Waterfront from Stadium, the last Brighouse train from Waterfront, and the last 401 bus from Brighouse after a cold wait. Thank goodness for winter clothing!

I got home just before the time change at 1:55 AM, soaked my sweater / jersey / pants in the tub, then went to bed soon afterwards. Today, I definitely did my laundry (one load on the second floor - one load on the third floor), and the jersey was fine after washing! Not sure whether it was the water treatment, the white vinegar, or the stain-lifting technology of my laundry detergent - I'm glad, anyway! I can live with 10-ish blotches around the logo, I guess. Talked to CANUCK NATION about this stuff, of course. The lid of the Touch Top garbage can in the bathroom broke off, and I was going to get a new one anyway since it won't fit... so off I go again!


These cheddar jalapeno Cheetos aren't Doritos! YOU HAD ONE JOB!

After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 12:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart, where 80% of the store smelled like durian! I bought on-sale Western Family store brand Ultra paper towels in a six-pack, on-sale Cottonelle toilet paper, Fanny Bay raw oysters for $20 (June 2, 2017), noodles, SOMETHING NEW, ice cream, dumplings, Western Family store brand chili con carne (hot AND original styles!) plus Uncle Ben's Bistro Express basmati rice x2 to go with it, on-sale Finesse extra body shampoo / conditioner, Koka curry noodles x2, store brand large rubber gloves, on-sale Finesse moisturizing shampoo / conditioner, on-sale Juzz Mee noodles x2 (original AND curry), Paldo spicy cheese ramen, regular and curry Laksa wholegrain La Mian noodles, and on-sale Silk almond milk x2. Then we went to London Drugs: a Jersey Milk chocolate bar for the Randal memory dragon, on-sale SunRype apple juice, on-sale SunRype orange juice, and on-sale Colgate 360° toothbrushes x2.


Barry and I saw a GOLDEN TRUCK in the back parking lot of London Drugs! When I got home, I paid my Shaw bill online. Then I went back to London Drugs (twice in one day!) at 6:30 on a 401 so I could get some on-sale LATE JULY organic multigrain tortilla chips for the time coincidence and quirkiness! I love quirky coincidences! While I was there, I couldn't resist getting one last large SunRype apple juice for a total savings of $12 on four jugs because the sale ends tonight! I got home at 6:55 on a 407, so YAY FOR BUS EFFICIENCY! I also saw an old guy with an artificial leg!

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!

In BOZOBOUND, the Robot Pilot is finally free in Greenland upon seeing Blue Antoid after going through the Rainy Circle Caves with Robot! "I'm free! Thanks, Robot."




In BOZOBOUND, Robot goes to Stonehenge Base in Greenland. For some weird reason, something that looks like a very large gold brick is in the way.




Here is the Cloaked Flying Device from Dr. Andonuts in Greenland, which Robot will use to get to Bozo and Paige in Cirque de Town! It looks like a white cloud with a smiley face.

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!
