After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 10:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got NEW on-sale Samyang curry terrorist noodles, Cottonelle toilet paper x2, on-sale Sidekicks x6 (Creamy Bacon Carbonara / Garlic Butter with Lemon / Creamy Chicken Fusilli / Three-Cheese / Homestyle Cheddar / Tomato Alfredo), Ferrero Rocher hazelnut Easter eggs and NEW Easter Egg Oreos for Eric Ho and me, NEW Dark Chocolate Oreo cookies, Crayola Original washable markers x2 (yay for felts!), on-sale Good Taste dumplings x5 (Cabbage and Pork / Pork and Celery / Cabbage and Chicken / Beef and Vegetable / Pork and Chive), and NEW Dawn Lavender Wisp dish detergent.

From Julie: Tenecia and JASEN?! That doesn't even make it more unique since it's still pronounced the same way as JASON!




From Julie: DeAsia?! Julie says it's not even pronounced "Day-sha." It's literally pronounced "Dee-Asia"! What?!




From Youtube: Kermit BUTTS was arrested for the murder of Sam BOOB! HAHAHAHA! Also, MIRINDA Boob has a bad spelling of her name. It should be MIRANDA!

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!


Wonton noodles from Wikipedia!




Lots of yogurt, chicken, and more! )

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.

From Reddit and the 2000 movie MISS CONGENIALITY: "Describe your perfect date." "That's a tough one. I'd have to say April 25th. Because it's not too hot and not too cold. All you need is a light jacket."




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!


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?"

HAPPY EASTER! It's also April Fools Day today - BOO!


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.

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!

Jessica Lai knows a woman named ZOWIE TAN?! I know David Bowie named his son Zowie, but that isn't an Asian name...




Good grammar is like personal hygiene - you can ignore it if you want, but don't be surprised when people draw their own conclusions.




From Janina: Lesbian... please, no dudes. "One day, I was sitting on my floor watching SESAME STREET. My fairy godfaggot flew into my room and said: "Listen here, you son of a bitch, you are going to be gay. Got it?" I nodded, and then she hit me on the head with her anti-dick stick. Poof... now I'm a lesbian!" This is what I say when people ask me why I'm gay.

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 went out in the rainy weather at 2:10 on a 407 to buy Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa cough medicine (THE BEST!) / more stickers (PJ Masks / rewards!) / ten $2 MARTEX washcloths / on-sale NEW Merci chocolate ($8.88!) / a replacement GIBSON owl coffee mug / on-sale Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup x6 / a bunch of family birthday cards (next year, I'm going to downgrade to regular!) / on-sale GUM toothbrushes x3 / on-sale blue Dawn dish detergent. 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!

I decided to go out on the 407 to Yaohan, but that actually took fucking forever compared to going to the Canada Line and taking it to Aberdeen Station. Ugh, never again! I had some noodles with beef internal organs after buying Soo Spicy Szechuan beef jerky, Soo Keta wild Pacific salmon black pepper jerky, Szechaun Numbing Spicy noodles, and Spicy Squid noodles from Osaka Supermarket. Finally got home at 2:05, which is okay.
