After taking a nap today, I noticed that Tryanna from Pathways had called me again a couple of times, and I was able to get through to her after a couple of attempts on my end. She wanted to change tomorrow's appointment to Monday because of possible staffing issues: sure, why not? I can be flexible when ASKED about it and given a chance to decide what I want for myself! Then I realized that this would NOT give Vanessa a chance to take photos of any GOOD TASTE dumplings or JOY dumplings in a bag, so I had to go out at 4:20 on a 401 to Price Smart with my wheeled luggage bag after doing my banking anyway!

I bought Philly-Style Steak and Cheese Bistro Crustini (thanks to Jimmy C. bringing up Philly Cheesesteak foods in Facebook chat), GOOD TASTE dumplings x5 (Beef and Vegetable / Cabbage and Chicken / Cabbage and Pork / Pork and Chive / Pork and Celery), JOY dumplings x4 (Pork and Tri-Treasure / Lamb and Onion / Pork and Vegetable / Pork and Chive), on-sale Western Family Peanut Butter Cups and Chocolate ice cream, Country Beef Pot Roast Stouffers Sauté Sensations, Homestyle Roast Chicken Stouffers Sauté Sensations, and some Chicken Alfredo Stouffers Sauté Sensations because of some Facebook comment mentioning Alfredo earlier. All of that weighed about 11.3 kg, and cost about $93.35! When I got home at 5:20 on a 407 (just managing to get the bus), I changed my RSVP to say that I'd be bringing that peanut butter chocolate ice cream instead for a dessert item! Erik's also just reminded me that Thanksgiving is coming up, so I put a turkey item on my grocery list for Monday.


SECRET LOVE TRICKS?!

I called Mega Sushi for a reservation for Sunday at 7 (but they won't guarantee the table if I'm ten minutes late - which is why I'm not bothering to change the time of the FB event since people will be late anyway!), then called Chrystal at work to confirm Sunday's dinner. I paid my Shaw bill online.


I'm a lady, but "fuck that shit" is still a perfectly acceptable substitute for the word NO.

It's WORLD MUSHROOM DAY today! :D

I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online after I showered and made some mushroom soup. No time for my pasta specialty if I had to make it to Jon and Harmony's at 12:30 or so on two cups of coffee! I got there at about 12:45 or so, declined lunch, and ate a piece of interesting mango chocolate for dessert instead. I played with the boys and their toy trains and arches, while answering "no" to the question of whether I lived on the Golden Gate Bridge! Eventually, we got going to the Family Centre drop-in with Harmony soon after she got home. I'm sure she would love some quiet time to herself, but that wasn't really an option. We talked about the summer and fall, my eventual birthday dinner, the hot weather, my shorts, chalk drawings, whether I'd stay for dinner, putting stickers on kites, chalk drawings at home being better than a hot playground, physio, and ratatouille / tabouli / spaghetti / THE ANTS GO MARCHING. Youtube videos, Ayler being able to serve himself after I finally got him some dinner because Hiero was having a meltdown, cantaloupe, bathroom time, beans, and emotions being okay.

Once I left at 6, I went to Oakridge Station before figuring out that I didn't have my bus pass, so went straight back to the house. It wasn't there, but it could be at the Physio Centre bathroom. Jon gave me some change for a one-time Compass Card, and Harmony called around for me. I finally got home at 7:40 on a 401, slow jabronies on the train notwithstanding. Get your kids and crap together BEFORE the train pulls into the station, people!

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!


From BackgroundGuy's Discord server: It's Wed Ness Day! Okay.

I went out at 2:45 and got two cans of NEW Comfort Creek Foods chicken and dumplings from the Dollar Tree. Then I got another pack of Samyang 2x Spicy Hot Chicken Ramen Flavor noodles from Big Crazy. Since they had a 10-cent surcharge on debit purchases, I got some Want Want snowy crackers. (which are plain and bland, so I'll give them to Chrystal) Apparently, I forgot my purple wallet there! Good thing that a lady came up behind me in the parking lot and let me know... that saved me some time and energy! Then I went to London Drugs to get a NEW Vileda cotton and microfibre mop and a NEW Vileda Quick Wring bucket - the wringer is connected to the bucket!

That's much easier than trying to get the wringer to stay on the grey bucket from people, so I threw out the old mop and bucket (along with the slightly wet toilet paper packs from yesterday) when I got home at 4. Later, I went to London Drugs again at 5:55 to get the rest of my bulky purchases: Cottonelle toilet paper x2 and on-sale SpongeTowels Ultra-Strong paper towels! I added two on-sale MAMA spicy shrimp noodles and on-sale NEW Bar Harbor fish chowder cans x2 to that as long as I was using my Royal Bank debit card. I got home at 6:35 on a 407, and I'd better not have any more emergencies in the next ten days!

After I had COFFEE TIME / BLACK TEA TIME, Barry picked me up at 1 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I bought store brand potato and cheese perogies, on-sale Excel White gum x3, perogies, bananas, NEW on-sale Samjin pretzels x5 (Tomato Ketchup / Spicy Beef / Stir-Fried Seafood / Cheddar Cheese / Wasabi), NEW Oreo Birthday Cake ice cream, NEW Breyer's Mrs. Fields Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream, blood orange Western Family store brand Greek yogurt, NEW on-sale frozen Northern King Tom Yum seafood soup, Campbell's light cream of mushroom soup, an on-sale Dawn dish detergent (New Zealand Springs), Money's sliced mushrooms x2, NEW Old Dutch Mozzarella chips, and NEW Old Dutch Jalapeno Cheddar chips. Also purchased Halls cough drops in a pack of 36 (cherry / cool mint / honey lemon / regular), Arm and Hammer Pro Sensitive toothpaste x2, Arm and Hammer Extra Advance Whitening toothpaste, an on-sale Colgate toothbrush, on-sale apple / pineapple / mango / orange juices, on-sale Fisherman's Wharf Taiwan-style dumplings (Pork and Cabbage / Chicken and Mushroom), NEW Hint of Jalapeno Tostitos chips, a big tub of Heluva Good!

When I got home, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online. Then I discovered that Chrissy, Marissa, and Subena had all unfriended me. What the heck?!


From Janina: Necrophilia... sit back and crack open a cold one!




NEW frozen Northern King Tom Yum seafood soup: squid, shrimp, octopus, lime, galangal, lemon leaf, chili, lemongrass, MSG, garlic, and baby corn!

After I had COFFEE TIME and called London Drugs customer service to find out when their current sale ends on Rubbermaid dish drainers (May 28), Barry picked me up at 12:45 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I bought on-sale Classico pasta sauce x2 (Four Cheese and Tomato / Pesto), noodles, a shower pouf, Teriyaki Rice / Noodles Sidekicks, preserved vegetables, on-sale Cheemo perogies x2 (Country Mushroom and Potato / Bacon / Romano Cheese), pork and tri-treasure / lamb and onion / pork and vegetable / pork and chives JOY dumplings at the Big Crazy price (which saves me a trip out there if it's the same price), on-sale store brand paper towels, and JML chicken and mushroom noodles. I also got on-sale Western Family French Vanilla ice cream, NEW Pillsbury poutine Pizza Pops in a special edition (I love the alliteration!), NEW Pillsbury cheese pizza bites, NEW Pillsbury pepperoni pizza bites, Juzz Mee curry noodles, a BC roll for $3.99 (better than the 22-piece $10.99 assorted rolls if the expiry date is still tomorrow, May 25), Vedan noodles x2 (Spicy Mushroom / Cuttlefish and Mushroom), and on-sale Ruffles chips x3. (Loaded Potato Skins / Sour Cream and Bacon / All-Dressed) I also saw preserved Cordia seeds while I was in the Chinese jars aisle, so made a note of that to tell Citrus so he can tell his sister.

While I was at the store, I helped a random white guy with some Nissin black garlic oil noodles, and told an old grandma that her shawl looked pretty. (it had Japanese women with fans on it!) She at least thanked me! When I got home at 2:10, Barry did agree to help me with changing the batteries on the phone in my bedroom, which is good. Afterwards, I paid my Shaw bill online today, then somehow unplugged my computer speakers while trying to figure some stuff out! My cashier recognized me, and so we chatted a bit - his name is Ray, and he has a white half-beard thing. I left again at 6:30 to London Drugs, where I got a new on-sale dish drainer (April 11, 2015) on Aisle 1 / on-sale purple GUM Comfort Slide flossers since today was the last day of their being on sale currently / an on-sale Slinky toy plus an on-sale Redbox pre-historic dinosaur toy set with trees (#24359) for Ayler's birthday.

I got a much more helpful computer associate this time (yesterday's associate had told me to go to the front for checkout and didn't seem interested in customer service), who sold me a black Microsoft Wired 600 keyboard for $20. Thank goodness it worked when I got home at 8:30 (just missing a 407 and having to wait for the next one), after a mini heart attack when it initially wouldn't work to put in my password at startup! This one is quieter and much lighter, too! Time to email Harmony to see when a good time would be to drop off the gifts, or see Ayler too, I guess. NOW MY MOUSE AND KEYBOARD ARE FREE OF MIKE AND HIS TAINT!


From the Staples Canada Facebook wall: a six-pack of Cross fountain pen ink cartridge refills and a five-pack of Parker Quink ink cartridge refills with fountain permanent ink are $999,999.99 each?!

I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online today. Barry picked me up at 1 after I had COFFEE TIME, and we went to both banks before heading to Price Smart. I bought Gatorade Cool Blue Raspberry x6, Excel White gum x3, $1 Sidekicks (Teriyaki Noodles / Tomato Alfredo x2 / Three Cheese x3 / Creamy Chicken Fusilli x3 / White Cheddar Queso / Teriyaki Rice / Singapore Curry Noodles x2 / Garlic Butter with Lemon x2 / Creamy Parmesan), NEW on-sale Western Family Loaded Chocolate Sundae ice cream in a limited edition ($2 off!), NEW Häagen-Dazs Spirits Vodka Key Lime Pie ice cream, Western Family fusilli (900 grams) / Western Family rotini (900 grams) / Western Family penne rigate (900 grams) / NEW Western Family macaroni (900 grams) / NEW Western Family Cavatappi pasta / NEW Western Family Casarecce pasta, on-sale bottled water x2 (two for $7 when the regular price was $6.75 for ONE!), and Silk almond milk x2.

I also got NEW Ruffles Mozzarella and Marinara chips (and told Sam on Discord later), on-sale All-Bran Buds ($2 off!), on-sale Honey and Lemon Strepsils (50 cents off!), Indomie Mi Goreng BBQ Chicken noodles, Silk almond vanilla milk x2, Mama shrimp tom yum noodles, on-sale Mamee Monster BBQ noodle snacks (almost $2 off!), on-sale Mamee Monster chicken noodle snacks (almost $2 off!), Vedan Bah Kut tea noodles x2, Vedan Mushroom / Cuttlefish noodles, and bananas. Turns out I saved $33.92 today, which is good! When I got home, I put $20 aside in an envelope for whenever Chrystal and I go out to dinner, then promptly spilled half the All-Bran Buds on my dining room table! Good thing that nothing got on the carpet, which is practically the same color as the cereal! For cleanup purposes, I wiped all the cereal detritus with a damp cloth after scooping most of it into the Ziploc bag!


From Buzzfeed: OH, RICK! What the heck?!




Ruffles chips: Mozzarella and Marinara!

Went out today after I called Barry to set up a food shopping appointment: my poor sleep schedule is going to suffer if it's on Friday at 10 AM, but I guess I'll deal. Eric also sent me an email about Friday's program and small groups on Wednesdays; I'll think about it. I did the usual banking after mailing my bus pass application, then I spent some time trying to redeem some Shoppers Optimum points only because I'd discovered that the zipper on my newest London Drugs bag BROKE! (I'd only had that thing since July 17, man!) I managed to find the ones at Shoppers all right, and selected a purple-and-green one with a gold SOLID zipper. Hopefully, that won't break on me anytime soon! That was $25, but I got it for free with the points redemption. I also got some Fire-Roasted Chipotle artisan Tostitos chips, and a more manageable size of on-sale Lindt dark chocolate bar. I'll give the original 300g one to Chrystal, haha.

Decided to go to London Drugs since their large Ziploc bags were cheaper than Shoppers; the extra-large ones were also on sale, so I got two units! While there, I saw the morbid Halloween candy which Janina wanted me to buy: Scaries, Scaero, and Coffin Crisp! I saw ghostly Kit-Kats as well, but I decided not to get them for now. Purchased those for me / Janina / Marilynn / Lisa / Harmony (should get some for Eric H. and Chrystal later), on-sale Pepperidge Farm Chessmen (shortbread?), Halloween cards and stickers, a bubble-wrap envelope for mailing purposes, and two maple syrup nougat chocolate bars. Got home and organized everything first before delving into my latest project again, of course. The skull stuff fits into the envelope, so that'll be going to California!
