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.

When I went out this morning to test the snow at 10 AM (and discover that Internet data was frozen on my phone), Megan from the eye clinic called me to say that I had a date for my other eye surgery: Wednesday, May 8! I called Barry AGAIN for the third time this week, and he said he couldn't drive me tomorrow since he was at the hospital with somebody. Very valid! I did tell him about the new surgery date and the February 27 eye clinic appointment, so we'll see on that one! Then again, IT'S SNOWING AGAIN IN RICHMOND! I might have to call and cancel the appointment tomorrow morning...

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 2 on a 414 to see Rachel at the Caring Place, then rushed home later, getting home at 4 on the third Brighouse 401, NO THANKS to a non-existent 407! The Canucks played the Blue Jackets at 4 today, and came from behind to win 3-2 on a fluky goal in the third - WOO!

2018 Year In Review!


THIS ENTRY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NON-ALIGNED TAGS.

[Meme fun: Take the first line from the first post of every month of the year. Repost it here as your year in review. (I'm discounting greetings and things like that :P) Yeah, it's been an interesting year!]

Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of the year. Post the first line of it in your journal as a paragraph, and that's your "Year In Review."

I got a baby girl card for Jason and Vanessa ("KEEP CALM AND CARRY BABY WIPES"), NEW Shasha organic ginger snaps for Vanessa (no sugar?!), 200g of on-sale Ferrero Rocher, 100 store brand bandages, a NEW Carnation variety pack of hot chocolate (TURTLES Canada / Coffee Crisp / After Eight), and NEW Lipton Chicken Noodle Supreme soup from London Drugs, which has just started charging for plastic bags. SO MUCH ON-SALE BLACK PEPPER SALMON JERKY FOR ME AND JIMMY AND JULIE, OH MY! I called Barry at 8:35 AM to tell him about the mouse on the glue trap which I discovered last night. The computer restarted at 6 AM! I called Barry at 9:40 this morning to remind him about going to Rona for a Victor Pest Chaser Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller, which cost $33. I went to the pharmacy next door at 1:50 to refill my prescription early; yes, even Adam commented on it!

I left at 5:55 to get two 3-subject Hilroy notebooks in green and light blue (for home use and road use) from London Drugs, returning home at 6:40 on a late 407. CHOCOLATE AND BATHROOM REPLACEMENTS GALORE AGAIN, and today's date is a palindrome: 8/1/18! Yesterday, Frances C. emailed me to say that she couldn't make it to Felico's because of work, which is fine. I went out at 12 on a 401 so I could buy Campbell's Chunky Soup (Jerk Chicken with Vegetables / Butter Chicken with Vegetables), NESCAFÉ instant coffee (December 16, 2017), a NEW on-sale limited edition Oh Henry! Canada / Oh Henry 4:25 Pop-Up candy bar, barkTHINS snacking dark chocolate with pumpkin seeds for Thanksgiving dinner, NEW limited edition Doritos Late Night Fully-Loaded Nacho chips, and HALLS assorted mint cough drops. I went out at 12:20 on a 414 to do some shopping for on-sale Halloween candy and Advent calendars. COFFEE TIME while I'm still figuring out why Jimmy blocked me instead of just talking to me about what I did...... I should have posed it as a hypothetical a while ago!

Rachel emailed to cancel on me today as she's sick - totally understandable!


Windoge 8! Much improve. So amaze. Wow.




From Reddit: I thought the purpose of a shower was to get yourself clean, ThatCatVal... how did you not know this?! Also, how do you not know the difference between LED and LEAD?! This sounds very supercilious and holier-than-thou.




From NHL News Updates: Happy Hockey Christmas Eve! It's the night before the NHL season begins!

glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
Barry A. Cook and Kyriakos Gouridaris tried adding me to Facebook - DENIED! Steph called me unexpectedly the other day (the 13th) to vent about Mom and her overly-complicated planning, especially trying to let JON pick the location for MY birthday AGAIN. His kids are not an excuse for everything! Planning with Lisa's side of the family is "we're inviting ourselves over for dinner... boom, done!" She definitely doesn't miss that OR Mom, but does miss me and seeing the boys. Apparently, Mom was trying to get her to come over for my birthday, but if she wouldn't fly over for Beckett's baby banquet last week... at least Lisa, Fraser, and Henry are doing well. I don't care if she can't make it for my birthday, especially if it's just her solo and everyone else isn't part of Mom's "whole family" image! That's offensive!

Then I called Auntie Catherine last night (the 14th), trying to change our Monday plans to Saturday plans like it originally was. Nope, she has car issues and the doctor's appointment is better for her. Well, I felt bad trying to do that, which is something rare for me. Oh well, at least I briefly talked to Chung on the phone, and Auntie Catherine can just meet me in front of Pepper Lunch!


From Hockey Memes: Brace yourselves... the NHL preseason is coming!

I updated my Google Chrome to Version 69 - now it has square tabs?! I also zoomed the default Google Chrome font up from Medium to Large, and zoomed the page zoom on LiveJournal and Wordpress from 110% to 125% since the previous zoom seemed to do nothing on those sites - SO MUCH EASIER TO SEE! NO STRAIN!

I also wasted way too much paper trying to print out the 2018-2019 Canucks schedule in an acceptable format and size (and also folded in half properly), especially with the Chrome update. Note to self: NOTEPAD SETTINGS should be Tahoma, at least size 18, LANDSCAPE printing orientation. DOUBLESPACE everything, too! Also, write R for Road Trips and COFFEE after that for games before 6 in brown Sharpie or brown marker!

I reminded everyone via email about the Felico's Greek food birthday dinner plans. Eric said he would be there. Good thing I asked him about a ride yesterday! Deb replied to say that her niece is also having a birthday celebration on the 23rd, said she was also doing the kidney walk that day, and invited me to Alpha at church. Ha! Maybe, maybe not! I also called Chrystal at work at 11:15 to remind her about the Greek food dinner (she can make it!), then Kevin replied to thank me for the reminder. He has a conflict that night, but may drop by briefly to offer his congratulations in person. Sounds fine either way!


From Ultimoice's Moonside Discord server: Billy Idol is saying, "It's a nice day for a light sweater. It's a nice day for a cardigaaaan!!" So true right now... brr!

glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
COFFEE TIME! Dawn's friend Terry Cheng added me to Facebook, saying that we'd attended Palmer and McNair together - okay, I can definitely go with that! The Canucks played the Blue Jackets at 1 today, and won 5-4 in overtime despite Columbus scoring three times in the last four minutes of regulation. Thatcher Demko got his first NHL win!


From Someecards: Creepy Easter Bunny 43!




From Julie M. and JUDGE JUDY: Jereme Walker?! Makes me want to pronounce it "Je-REM." That's a bad spelling of JEREMY!

COFFEE TIME! I finally got a Christmas card from Kitty (bornwitch) in the mail today, so that was good! The Canucks played Columbus at 4 today, and finally won a game in 2018.... JAKE INTO THE EMPTY NET FOR A 5-2 WIN! I plan to shower later, too.


Julie wanted to share an 8Memes video with me in Facebook chat last night. (When you want to sleep, and your brain just goes SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THIS...) When I saw it, the same video was at the top of my Facebook feed! QUIRKY COINCIDENCE! :D




From Julie: Chewin' McGregor!




With Mr. Z's help, the FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF party finally makes it to the Barrier Tower and defeats Yog-Sothoth. In the aftermath, Mr. Z says, "Mr. Z can't die here! Fools will go unpitied and jibba-jabba will go unchallenged!" Definitely a Mr. T persona there!

From Reddit: Around here, Sportsnet 650 has an announcer named JAWN JANG?!




The Vegas Golden Knights have a goalie named Oscar Dansk, JUST LIKE THE ROYAL DANSK COOKIES! I also like the writer's name: Paul ZWAMBAG! That sounds somehow badass!




From THE ROANOKE TIMES in September 2004: Mellisa Williamson, 35, a Bulitt Avenue resident, worries about the effect on her unborn child from the sound of jackhammers. Lady, YOU'RE ALSO PREGNANT AND SMOKING! Also, what kind of spelling is MELLISA?!

2017 Year In Review!

Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of the year. Post the first line of it in your journal as a paragraph, and that's your "Year In Review."

I was going to go out today, but there's still too much snow around Richmond! I went out at 4:25 to do some shopping at London Drugs: lots of chips! I dreamed that a bunch of us were going around in mine carts to see Vernon and Joe Yu. Steph sent me an email saying that Fraser was playing with his toy phone at 7:30 their time; she asked who he wanted to call, and he said "A-ma"... CUTE! At 12:35, I called Chrystal to see when a good time would be for us to get together this month. I went out at 2:40 to get more on-sale President's Choice Blue Menu Six Bean Medley cans at Shoppers Drug Mart as long as they're still 99 cents!

I went out at 2:30 to catch the next 401 and hopefully check out the Steveston Salmon Festival / Richmond all-day street party at Steveston Village. I went out at 1:10 to London Drugs so I could mail a card and stickers to Fraser EARLY for his second birthday, and bought a small Jersey Milk chocolate bar / Ragusa Noir dark chocolate bars x2 for me and Eric Ho / on-sale Lindt Fudge Swirl chocolate truffles. I went out to Richmond Centre at 11:30 to see if I could get relatively inexpensive new shoes from Payless. I tried opening an Arm and Hammer toothpaste tube today, and it COULD NOT BE OPENED, so I threw it out! I went shopping at 3:55 today after COFFEE TIME: I was planning to get a sandwich, discount Halloween chocolate, and some sensitive toothpaste. I went shopping at 4:15 in the rainy weather on a 401 today at London Drugs for a 4th birthday card for Hiero (cupcakes!), on-sale Arm and Hammer laundry detergent (a 50-load bottle!), 200 index cards, and some big Ziploc bags x2 for a total of 40.

Greyden White?! / My brilliant stardust and fucking shine! / NHL playoff time!


Since I woke up at 6:45 AM, it was COFFEE TIME!


From DYING TO SLEEP, which is about Fatal Familial Insomnia: An OLD guy named Greyden White?!




From Eve: Not everyone is going to understand you. Some souls just don't align. Some have never seen such brilliant stardust. Some can't handle your fucking shine.




From Total Hockey: Tell your boss or teacher not to expect too much from you starting tomorrow... It's NHL playoff time!
