Eric Ho emailed me this morning to say that he wishes he could make it to the MEGA SUSHI dinner, but they've scheduled him to work a Monet art exhibit at the VAG (art gallery), so he proposed that we hang out here instead for the Canucks regular season opener on Saturday, October 7. Sounds fine to me! I also blocked a stupid idiot who thought that disrespecting my "DO NOT COMMENT" boundaries was FUNNY. Time for some Chicken Alfredo as revenge since that's his name!


The SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party (Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad) finally makes it to Onrac. This woman tells them. "You have legs!"




In SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE, Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad go to the Flying Fortress. They obtain the Adamantite: "The legendary metal."




In SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE, Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad finally make it to the final dungeon, the Chaos Temple 2000 years in the past. They use the Whistle from Princess Toadette. "The tune plays, revealing a stairway."

Mom and Dad picked me up at 5:50 with a bunch of stuff, detailed below. We went to White Spot because I vetoed Dinesty. It's my birthday, so I get to choose, dammit! We talked about Steph, this upcoming winter, Jon needing to be a parent (I don't care!), Netflix, Auntie Grace, Dave He, Auntie May and Auntie Vivian and AWANA at church (like I'm going back?!), Phil / Uncle Peter / Auntie Ying, my curried red quinoa, Mom "ordering" coffee (she did NOT!), attempts to get me to ask Eric for a ride on Sundays (NO - I LIKE MY FREEDOM!), and pickles. I got home at 7:25, which was fine.

Barry called me at 12:30 to say that he'd found someone named Tryanna who could take me food shopping on the 20th. He says he'll be back in early October, unless war breaks out in Japan. I thought Trump was after North Korea, but WHO KNOWS. Then I called Chrystal at 1:15 to let her know what was up, of course. She appreciated it - of course I'll call her later to confirm!


Crazy Kefka at the final battle of FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS! "Soon I will break free of this wretched HUMAN body, and drain the life of every living creature!"




The FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party responds, "The Dark Crystals have been destroyed! You can't expect to win against us!"




Kefka as the Dark Cloud says, "All but one... The Shadow Crystal!! It shall protect me and destroy YOU!"




Kefka is the Dark Cloud! )

Matt H. unfriended me or deleted his Facebook account, whichever. I discovered that my new CHAMPION shoes were pretty small when it came to taking them off, so after looking up the return policy up online AND calling the store just in case, it was off to the mall on the C94 at 3:30. Luckily, they let me exchange the shoes (paying a $2.80 "cash difference" fee on shoes that are the SAME PRICE) even though there were light dirt marks on them, so I got men's CHAMPION shoes size 7. Not sure why I didn't realize I was buying kids' shoes yesterday... I got home at 4:10 and made dumplings while reconnecting with Jimmy and Lena via Facebook messenger.


From LADbible: Beard facts! Stroking of beard increases concentration, cognitive ability. Science has shown that beards rarely sleep. Beards are almost completely immune to sarcasm. Quadruples handsomeness. Lets you instinctually know where the nearest mountain is. Fits on your face. Dramatically increases your wood-chopping capabilities. Acts as a homing beacon attracting the jealous and admiration of the beardless. Natural bear-repellant when camping or wandering in the woods. Filters the air of toxins, pollution, and stray food.

Since I got up at 8 AM, it was COFFEE TIME! I later showered and did laundry.





"You Should Wear Brown Sunglasses"




You are very down to earth, and your fashion choices are very classic. You don't mind paying more for quality pieces.
You are smart and savvy. You wear sunglasses not only to complete your look, but also to protect your eyes.

You always know how to dress for the occasion. Fashion for you is more like camouflage - you want people to focus on your other qualities.
You pick clothes that are comfortable and a perfect fit. You may look dressed up, but you're as comfy as can be!

Today is Left-Handers Day! I had to deal with a lot of online drama this morning, which involved some rude and condescending Penguins fan named Jennifer who thought that she had an IQ of 169, and that my "attitude problem" could be solved by talking to her. I don't THINK so! Thank goodness Helen Y. understood, while Jimmy could definitely relate, and Tommy was okay with people leaving that Metropolis Division group chat on Facebook. Hopefully, Jimmy and I can forge more of a friendship! I think it's a good sign that he says he trusts me (gotta make sure that stays) and wants me to speak my mind / anything to him. I'll just take this friendship slowly, as per usual.


From Julie: Talton English?!




From Not Always Working: Khristy Monigold?! The only acceptable spellings for that name are Christy and Kristy. MAYBE Kristi or Cristy.




In FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS, the party finally makes it to the Ancient Castle dungeon. They find Queen Yunalesca's Diary in a room to the right of the throne! "A book, with a gem-encrusted cover... Queen Yunalesca's Diary."




In the GBA version of FINAL FANTASY VI, the diary is simply "The Queen's Diary." In the SNES version (not pictured), the diary is even more simple: "Queen's Diary." It says, "The Queen's Diary... I have fallen in love with Odin. It is a forbidden love, I know... But the flames of passion obey not rule or reason..."




This is from the SNES version: If Terra is in the FINAL FANTASY VI party at this point, she will have something to say after everyone reads the Queen's Diary. "Love between a human and an Esper..." Yes, that is her defining character trait!

glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)



"You Should Sit in a Blue Chair"




You are the most reliable and trustworthy person in the room. You bring stability to every situation.
You are genuine, sincere, and honest. You tactfully tell it like it is, and people trust you to bring on the truth.

You are at peace with who you are, and because of this, you are quite confident. You love yourself - pure and simple.
You are even-tempered, cool, and collected. It takes a lot for something or someone to get under your skin.

It was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT at 7:30 AM this morning. After finding mouse droppings in the kitchen and looking things up online, I went to London Drugs at 10:20 on a 407. Unfortunately, there was an older lady at the bus stop who thought that I wanted to be the recipient of endless talking about when the next bus would get there. I gave her the eminently unhelpful answer of "no" when asked for the time, and an equally unhelpful answer of "five minutes ago" when asked if and when I left my house, hahaha. I also don't flip off drivers THAT often, but WHY WOULD YOU DRIVE INTO A PEDESTRIAN'S PATH WHEN THEY'RE TRYING TO CROSS AT AN UNMARKED CROSSWALK?! Once I finally got to the store, I got index cards / two on-sale jugs of bleach / some zebra duct tape. Then I got home at 10:55 on a 401 and started cleaning / disinfecting / putting duct tape and steel wool in the kitchen.


Clorox Bleach!




Zebra duct tape!

I had to take out ANOTHER dead mouse on a glue trap last night at 10 PM - UGH! Yes, I definitely had to have some whiskey after that!

It's Air Conditioning Day and WORLD OYSTER DAY today, so of course I definitely had to have my two pounds of Fanny Bay raw oysters! :D


The FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party comes to the last room of Umaro's Cave with the Magitek Armor and this soldier. He turns out to be Biggs from the beginning of the game, and tells them: "I've failed as a soldier..." Time to teleport out of the dungeon, and bring Emperor Zemus with us instead!




Emperor Zemus comes with the FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party inside Umaro's Cave, and orders Biggs to join them because he was the emperor. This time, Soldier Biggs says: "Lieutenant Biggs... Reporting, sir! Yes, sir... I'll join you!"




From the Save-On Foods Facebook wall: A Save-On Foods store in Winnipeg built this cart corral which only holds two shopping carts! Good job! NOT.

Since I woke up at 7:30 AM, it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! Hester's husband Ni and a suite inspector guy came by later at 10:35 for the annual suite inspection. I got the suite inspector guy (who said that the sink was losing its shine - DUH?!) to help me remove that dead mouse on the glue trap behind the couch. No, he was not allowed to put it in the kitchen garbage can! I had readied a London Drugs plastic bag (and rubber gloves if needed) for that purpose earlier! Ni said again that the pest control would come by next month, so I called him on that. Apparently, he'd forgotten that it was now August. Still, I shouldn't have to live with that for weeks! I went out to throw the London Drugs plastic bag in the dumpster outside, then liberally applied white vinegar to that area of the carpet. I don't care what the management thinks about a temporary wet floor!


From Mental Floss: THE BOOK OF MARMALADE?!




The FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party finally survives the nerve-wracking cave inside the Zone Eater's belly on Triangle Island! It had all the jumping puzzles with annoying green guys pushing them off and blocking their way. Instead of Gogo, they find Emperor Zemus in the last room of the cave! Can they trust him to be an additional party member? He says that he didn't know that Kefka was the Dark Cloud...




From The Onett Times: Walking across a bed of hot coals is impressive. Ninten walking across a bed of Lego pieces is impossible!

My Internet connection seemed really spotty today, so I had to call up Shaw at 4:10 when my phone lines actually worked and investigate. I got an older lady named Joan in Nanaimo who ran me through a speed test, and said that my upload / download speeds were actually pretty good. Luckily, it seemed to work okay after the phone call - PHEW!


In SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE, Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad are exploring Musha. This guy says, "Hey, Mario people, how did you COME THERE? Where WERE YOU?" What the heck?! Is this Engrish?!

I woke up at 8 AM today, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! Later on, I learned that I'm an aunt again to Nephew #4, Henry, who was born at about 6 AM! I approve of the first and middle names.


In FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS, Strago and the party defeat Astos the Dark Elf and his Dark Goblins on Ebot's Rock north of Mysidia. The player discovers that Gungho was faking his injuries, then the party leaves town. On the way out, they come across Gungho, who asks: "Everything okay?"

I showered and did laundry today, a day earlier than I might have! However, I had to wipe a very watery bathroom floor with a mop and multiple (paper) towels, then had to do TWO loads of laundry on the THIRD floor, where one of the dryers was out of order! What stressful stramash! AIYA! I finally finished all the laundry just now at 7:30!


The FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party (Gau, Sabin, Celes, and Strago) goes to visit the crazy old man. Aged Man: "Oh, hello again! Yep, you were tops!" Sabin: "That's why we..."

I discovered that Michael Paul Marcus McKinney unfriended me, but that's okay!


In SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE, Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad check out the Charm Song that they got from Lufenia. "Stamped on the bottom... MADE IN LEFEIN."




My ex-friend Michael Paul Marcus McKinney, whom I remember meeting via Scrabulous in 2008!




From my ex-friend Michael Paul Marcus McKinney: Here's an alien (possibly a Reticulian) saying, "Psst... don't tell anyone that we are coming to earth in 2017."

I discovered redrum today... ugh! Then Hester, her husband Ni, and two strong delivery guys dropped by at 1:45 with my BRAND NEW FRIDGE AND FREEZER from Moffat Applicances! That replaced my very old White-Westinghouse fridge and freezer from the 80s, which finally conked out in mid-May or mid-June. I wasn't impressed when Hester called me "N-G," and when the guys left my blue towel (which they used to wipe the back of the old fridge) on the bush outside the front door. I was going to throw it out anyway, but REALLY? At least I was able to save most of my fridge magnets AND the "peeing in toilet" decal from Granville Island!


From Janina and Team Crazy: I'm not a tomboy, but I'm not a girly girl, either. Like, I wanna get my nails done, but then again, I wanna set shit on fire.

I went out to the Bay at 3:15 on a 407 for a new 3-pack of Jockey underwear in size 9 (last bought on November 15, 2016) since I needed some partly because of the other day. Thank goodness for extra money in my bank account! Then I went to London Drugs to get Tasty Bite basmati rice and some Arroy-D green curry to go with it, bulk Always pads, 400 index cards, on-sale Guacachips, on-sale Salsitas chips, NEW on-sale Paqui tortilla chips in Grilled Habanero / Cool Salsa Verde flavors, and an on-sale replacement $2 dark blue washcloth. I was surprised when I got home at only 4:25 on another 407!


NEW Paqui tortilla chips: Grilled Habanero!




NEW Paqui tortilla chips: Cool Salsa Verde!




Bartz, Lenna, Faris, and Galuf finally get to Bal Castle from the Forest of Moore thanks to Krile's wind drake. The first three are very surprised to learn that Galuf is actually a king! Bartz: "Eh? I thought you were just some crazy old man - you never said anything about being a king!"




Bartz: "Just kidding! I'd just better mind my P's and Q's around you... King Galuf."




Galuf: "Listen up - before you knew me as a king, you knew me as a friend. Just "Galuf" is fine."




Bartz: "Understood, Just Galuf!"




Galuf: "... Don't push it, kid. Here in Bal, bad jokes like that will get you PUNished..."

glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)
I decided to call my worker Barry at 10:50 to finally let him know about last week's events: Hester actually believing me with proof about the freezer not working. I swear, the ice cream was pretty bleh! Then the apartment building manager Hester, her husband Ni, and the maintenance repair guy came around at 1:30 to check out my fridge and freezer. The official diagnosis is that I need a new fridge and freezer combo because my current one is from the 1980s, and the maintenance guy isn't going to repair THAT! Thank goodness that Hester heard that straight from the repair guy's mouth, as she will now let her office know about things, so I'll see what happens with this. She also told me not to buy anything that needed to be frozen until after I heard what her office had to say and got a new fridge and freezer: DUH?!


In SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE, Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad go into the Earth Cavern to defeat Wario and get the Ruby. "There is a stone plate on the floor... You sense something... Evil? ..."




Ruby: A large red stone.




Later, the SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party goes into the Giant's Cave to give the Ruby to this stone monster. "If you want pass, give me the RUBY... Crunch, crunch, crunch... Mmm, it tastes so sweet. Rubies are my favorite."




Rod: The ROD to remove the plate from the earth. (the SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party got this from the Sage's Cave)




The SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party gets the Oxyale from the formerly-Bottled Faerie once they let her go when they reach the town of Gaia. "The OXYALE furnishes fresh air." This lets the party breathe underwater in the Sunken Shrine dungeon in Onrac.

In FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS, the party makes it to the Narshe schoolroom in the World of Ruin. "Welcome to the classroom. We'll be here for you even if the world should crumble." IT DID, AND THEY ARE! How reassuring! :D

Rare item in FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS: Fish: A rotten fish.

glowing_dragon: (DarkEyedWolf... sex!)
I found out that the freezer might not have been working properly, so I called Hester at 11:25 for some help in that regard. After asking me what the freezer was (???), she said to adjust the number levels on temperature sensor, and to drop her a note later. Since I had to do my laundry after I showered anyway, I decided to combine two second-floor trips into one, and finished the laundry at 2. Hester came by at 3:45 to check stuff, and she said it was okay after adjusting some more things. At least she wasn't rude like she can be!

THE 2017-2018 CANUCKS SCHEDULE IS OUT! TIME FOR PLANNING AHEAD ON INDEX CARDS AND NOTEPAD DOCUMENT!


From Janina: Sexual Harassment Panda! "So you're not into casual sex? Fine, I'll put on a tux and we'll call it formal sex." "You have a boyfriend? You want a MAN friend?" "Roses are red, violets are blue. I suck at poetry. Show me your tits."

"I WOULD call Heaven and tell them an angel was missing. But I'm kinda hoping you're a slut." "Are you retarded? You look special to me." "I am wasted, but the condom in my wallet doesn't have to be."




From Engrish.com and Library of Most Controversial Files: Whatever tea?!




Locke and Terra meet up with General Leo, Celes, and Shadow the assassin in Albrook after the events at the Imperial Palace banquet in FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS. Shadow reassures them: "I'm working for the Empire. But don't worry... I'm not going to garrote you!" HAHAHAHA!

glowing_dragon: (Bubble Tea)
I think it's amusing that I'm mentioning Teunis and Krista in the same post since they used to go out with each other and are now exes, haha. :D

After MORE COFFEE TIME, I went out at 6:15 to mail Lisa's Twisted Whiskers goldfish in martini birthday card to her at the London Drugs post office. Then I went to the Richmond Centre Dining Terrace food court (eating some food first - vegetable chow mein, mixed vegetables, pepper steak, and slightly spicy Kung Pao chicken from Kung Pao Wok) to meet up briefly with Teunis so to return a Christmas-themed envelope with Teunis's name on it, plus a Percy Jackson and Olympians: The Lightning Thief DVD box. At least, I intended it to be briefer than it was. He brought his wife and child (Rochelle and Heidi) from Burnaby, and we both got closure on what happened in 2011, which is nice. Discussed his not talking to Jasmine anymore (good!), understanding, being stressed out, no online following (which is totally fine), vegetables, his treating me to a mango oolong bubble tea with small pearls from Fair Bee Bubble Tea (I was too fast for him when it came to dinner food!), and my nephews.

We also talked about their Vietnamese food with sauces and shrimp salad rolls, Heidi wanting to give me her used plastic cutlery, his meeting Mike once briefly, our lives now, shaking hands, web design, Heidi's impatience / thinking it was Metrotown with the train for kids / liking all the lights, the Canucks, Vikings, my learning the importance of non-rushed alone time / non-emergencies, and a floor plan of the mall. I got home with leftovers at 8:20 on a 407, which is good because it was still light out. At least he says that it's good to see I'm doing much better, and I can say the same for him as well.


From Julie: A dragon refining a castle with his breath!




From Krista: Cloud water dragon with a green imp and trees!

When equipping Espers on the FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS characters, Ifrit gives Setzer "STRENGH +1" at level-up. What the heck is that, game?!

The SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party (Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad) is finally able to fly into Gaia, where they come across this backwards-talking broom! "Do you have great Power?" it asks them in backwards speak.




The SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party (Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad) is finally able to fly into Gaia, where they come across this backwards-talking broom! This lady nearby says, "What's that broom up to? It's talking backwards!"




The SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party (Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad) finally gets to the Caravan and gets the Bottled Fairy, as seen in their Items.




The SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party (Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad) uses the Bottled Fairy in the Caravan before they get to Gaia, where she is supposed to fly away. Thank goodness that save states are a thing in JNES 1.1! "Pop! A fairy appears, then is gone."
