COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played the Stars at 4 today... the game went into overtime and a shootout after Vancouver gave up ANOTHER 2-0 lead. At least the Canucks WON 3-2 this time!


A leprechaun with green beer and four-leaf clovers: Happy St. Patrick's Day!




From FML: Today, I fell asleep in class. As a joke, my professor used an airhorn to wake me up. I got so freaked out that I punched the girl next to me in the face. She got knocked out. FML. (THIS is why Andrew M. should NOT use airhorns!)




From Julie: Kiss me, I'm Highrish! Nice green T-shirt for St. Patrick's Day or 420!

From Julie: Toilet Rules: If you lift it up, put it down. If it runs out, replace it. If you miss it, wipe it. If you're finished, flush it. If it smells, spray it. GENTLEMEN: Stand closer! It may be shorter than you think. LADIES: Please remain seated for the whole performance.




From Andrew: An airhorn attached to the toilet with duct tape?! This is literally how you scare the shit out of somebody!

After COFFEE TIME, Barry called me at 11:50 to see if I could change our food shopping appointment next week from Wednesday to Thursday, which I had no problem with. I left at 12:25 to get to the Burrard eye clinic for my appointment with Dr. Wise for a one-week followup, even if the construction zone around here is annoying. Still got off at Yaletown-Roundhouse and was in time to catch the 6 Davie in the land of the pink bus stops, which is what I know now. I got there at 1:05, but that was fine. The doctor says my eyes still look healthy and are improving, that I can't dislodge the cataract lens even if I tried, and that I could throw out the antibiotic with zero refills, which was fine by me. She says there is no need to rush to get newer glasses because my prescription is not fully formed yet - apparently, a bunch of people DO waste their money and do just that. My next appointment is the six-week followup on Feb. 27 (a Wednesday) at 2:15, which works for me.

Later, I took the opportunity to play with the Shaw wi-fi while I was still at the clinic office, then decided to do my shopping in Vancouver. I should have done it in Richmond or on Broadway to save some time, since some asshole decided to hit me up for some Canadian coins outside Vancouver City Centre under the guise of "a dumb American question" while I was looking at a map. I went to the London Drugs right there to get Scotch Expressions orange masking tape x2 and red $2 MARTEX washcloths x2. They didn't have any duct tape, so I asked an employee where the nearest Staples was - near Burrard Station, which wasn't too far away.

Thanks to the aforementioned asshole, I got three blocks to Burrard Station which was very near the Staples at 1055 West Georgia. I eventually managed to find the entrance, and had to walk a bit to get into the actual store. I bought Z-Grip Pens x60 (June 24, 2018) and black duct tape, temporarily walked in the wrong direction, and eventually got home at 4 on a 407. No more two-hour service gap at Brighouse!

Deb emailed me again at 6:15 to ask how the appointment had gone, and to wonder if I'd seen Declan's orange Beyblade Pokemon stadium and toys. Nope, but it could be anywhere in that alcove or townhouse by now! Someone named Emily Harris added me to Facebook - possibly Kurt's girlfriend, but she never responded to my message asking who she was. What the heck?! Then I noticed that Emilie Mak unfriended me, but that's fine - I only knew her as an Awana kid from 2007!


From Sara, Reddit, and r/funny: The Grammar Police are here to serve and correct... just look at their uniforms!




From Julie M. and DR. PHIL: Zona?! Reminds me of Zoma in DRAGON WARRIOR 3! She also claims that she's been pregnant for three years and seven months...




1500 HEARTS AND LOVE on my Facebook posts!

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
When Andrew M. came over at 11 AM to do the computer case swap, I definitely gave him the parking pass. We talked about the microwaves, wiping the dirty counter (I did 90% of it myself with a sponge), Ziploc bags, bowls, screws, Teresa, wires, cables, personal drama, my router not working for an Internet connection after the computer case swap was done, troubleshooting via phone (which did not work), my coffee, Windows making a device driver update sound every time I moved my mouse (which didn't happen before the swap, either), and my calling Eric later. Chinese Eric called me at 2:35 while I was reading ROCK AND ROLL'S MOST WANTED, and said that he might not make it because of some extra work stuff - ugh! Kevin called me at 3 to personally wish me a happy birthday since he would actually be in Surrey, for which I thanked him. Yep, lamb would definitely be on the menu for tonight! As he said, you can get chicken anywhere!

Eric called me back at 4:30 to get more details, and since he was coming here anyway, I said he could come here at 6:30 or so... he was only seven minutes late, and noted that the router seemed overheated. I left at 6:55 for Felico's after MORE COFFEE TIME, and packed the parking pass so it would be slightly LESS hassle upon coming back here to figure things out. I had his birthday Lindt Excellence dark chocolate bars (Madagascar / Pink Peppercorn) and birthday card, for sure this time! Talked to white Eric, Chinese Eric, and Jeremy about Chrystal's unknown whereabouts, the NCIX breach, Memory Express, Jeremy's birthday card for me which fit me (nice!), Reddit, Mark's wedding, Rochester in New York, Jeremy's cousin in Edmonton, Victoria, Redmond, the RCMP, Skype, Discord, emojis ("that eggplant was 100!" "let's talk about something else, Mom..."), my parents using WhatsApp and NOT WeChat (probably), and Nathan.

We also discussed Christon being engaged (and Steph's "WHAT?!" reaction), Eric Ho mixing up MSN Messenger and Facebook Messenger, Mom thinking I was a "Hotmail expert" back in Vegas in 2012, my router problems, MAC addresses, Linux, ICQ still being around these days in Russia, my traditional lamb dinner, lamb stew, moussaka, and giving Jeremy a ride to Aberdeen Station. Eric and I got back here at 8:40, and for some reason, the router worked after a bit of fiddling. Okay, then! (afterwards, it blipped out AGAIN for a thankfully brief time)

He also fixed my mouse sound issue and the speaker wire problem - PHEW! Then I called Chrystal AGAIN after he'd left at 9-ish (I'd tried when we got in), finally getting her on the phone. She apologized profusely and said that she was half an hour late and really lost - she still could have come in and said "hey guys!" since we didn't start ordering till 7:30 or so anyway. After all that, she said that she had to make it up to me, so Friday evening at the usual place and time it is, especially if it's easier for her! PHEW! Eric M. thanked me for the birthday card and chocolate, and noted that he was glad Chrystal was okay.

Today is Left-Handers Day! Andrew M. came by after work (not tied up in Coquitlam) to pick up his final $50 payment of $300 for the computer payment schedule started in May, and the computer work done in late June. What a time these past three months have been, especially with Jimmy and everything! Andrew also had that computer chair which he mentioned on July 11, so that's good. He came by at 10:25 to pick up the $50 and drop off the muted pink computer chair with wheels and tilting action - yup, the grease spot was prominent, but it wasn't terrible. All I gotta do is clean it: rub Palmolive on the washcloth and make sure just to blot it and not spread it all over.

Edit at 11:30 -- I rubbed it out before bed (hehehe), and it seemed to clean out okay with the Palmolive Original.

After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart, where I bought Palmolive Ultra Strength dish detergent for that computer chair which now has grease on it, as per Andrew's and my phone call on Friday about Teunis moving to Saskatchewan because they can buy a house there with saved money / swapping out the computer case for a smaller one in September since it's still part of our deal. I got NEW Nissin prawn noodles x2 / NEW Nissin soya sauce and pork noodles x2 / on-sale Western Family beef noodles x2 / on-sale Western Family vegetable noodles x2, JOY dumplings x4 (Pork and Tri-Treasure, Lamb and Onion, Pork and Vegetable, Pork and Chive), Winter Creek raw oysters x2 for Raw Oyster Day (expires on Aug. 6), NEW on-sale Peace Tea iced tea x4 (Razzleberry raspberry / Lemon Love lemon tea / Caddy Shack tea and lemonade / Greenest of all Teas green tea) and on-sale Earth's Own unsweetened almond milk.

Also purchased on-sale Clorox wipes x2, on-sale Kraft Parmesan cheese, a Hungry Man turkey dinner, Arm and Hammer baking soda, Arm and Hammer toothpaste, on-sale Prego Fresh Mushrooms pasta sauce, World Authentica Cuisine pasta sauce, on-sale Western Family blueberry-pomegranate yogurt, on-sale Western Family frozen vegetables, Vedan mushroom and artificial cuttlefish instant noodles, Wei Lih spicy beef noodles, and Six Fortune broad noodles. Then my debit card got declined a couple of times because I couldn't swipe my chip card, and the magnetic stripe couldn't be read! I think I'll take Barry's advice and go to Coast Capital sometime so I can figure out this shit. After that, I paid my Shaw bill online at home. That also gave me some stress because the bill was twice as high as it should have been, and I had to make a new Shaw ID and secure password at their website! Damn technology!

When I got up today at 7:15 AM, I found that my computer wouldn't go off Hibernate Mode for some reason - I even did a hard reboot of the thing! Then I thought it was possibly the monitor going screwy AGAIN like it did in late April. I went back to bed to rest some more while thinking of the worst-case possibilities in my head (NEW MONITOR EXPENSE?!) and waiting for a decent time to leave a voicemail with White Eric. I did that at 8:30 AM (saying that I needed him to work his magic with my computer monitor again) after I noticed that the light on the monitor was still blue and blinking. He called me back at 9:05 and said that he could come over tonight after work, but I knew he wouldn't be able to make it before 6:45 (which is when I'd have had to leave to meet Chrystal), so tomorrow night is THE TIME OF HOPE! I also found my red chili pants from Sears!

I drafted my August fact statuses on index cards, had COFFEE TIME, and called FYI Doctors to get a final price on the new glasses, even if they had to call the Ministry to find out if I was covered or not. THE PRICE IS $150! Less than the $175 I thought, but still... I left in the hot weather at 2:30 for Richmond Centre, just barely managing to get the 401, and going to KFC in the food court since it's National Fried Chicken Day today. I let the cashier upsell me to two pieces of fried chicken (a thigh and drumstick) instead of one: $2.95 vs. $5.64? Then I went to the library on a crowded 410; I updated CANUCK NATION, Steph, Julie M., Jimmy, Andrew M., and HS's Discord / wondered why Debbie S. would add me on another Facebook account / tagged some statuses that needed it. I swear the Facebook status jail thing is based on IP address! Now I'm leaving to pee and then meet Chrystal for dinner. I hope I don't miss the C94! I also did NOT delete Mom and Dad's old library card number and PIN from my Important Stuff Entry, which is good - I wrote it down in my notebook, and will duplicate it later at home! Good thing they didn't change the PIN! I should have remembered it earlier!
glowing_dragon: (Consumer Whore)
After COFFEE TIME, I left extra early (ugh) at 12:20 for my 1 PM rescheduled appointment with Rachel. I guess I have to take being half an hour early rather than ten minutes late, due to weird C94 scheduling. After that, I went to London Drugs and got Excel peppermint gum, and was very careful with my selection for a new wallet, eventually deciding on a $30 (and expensive!) "big" black Swiss Gear toiletry bag. At least it can fit 100 index cards, three maxipads, and a bunch of other stuff while still being wide enough for a bank envelope should I need one to compartmentalize some cash money! Speaking of cash money, I got two $5 bills in my change, which should be enough for the "extra" $10 for Andrew's final computer payment for next payday! I got home at 3:05 on a 407, and was mildly annoyed when I saw that Mom had tried calling me. I SAID I COULDN'T MAKE IT TO LUNCH! Jesus Christ!

I did call Chrystal at work yesterday when I got home. We made plans for Friday the 13th, which doesn't bother me. Broadway London Drugs, it is!

Andrew called me at 9, so I was ready for him to bring over my NEWER COMPUTER WITH WINDOWS 7! :D

He came by at 9:45 and spent 20 minutes going over the specifics of the Nvidia computer case / power supply / various components, saying that Teunis is moving to Saskatchewan at the end of the month, telling me about his mom's huge quantities of chili in a Dutch oven, and saying that he was looking forward to a shower after a 14-hour workday. I bet! Thank goodness Chrome synced! Yes, I paid him his $40, and can probably make a $50 payment next time to pay everything off.


Yam Yaryan?!




From Julie M. and JUDGE JUDY: Deneika Reynolds?! I can see Danica or Danika, but WHAT is with that bad spelling?!

glowing_dragon: (Crazy-Eyed Bear)
I had to get up at 8 AM and have COFFEE TIME in preparation for my eye exam at 10 AM, but the directions given to me by FYI Doctors were pretty vague. As long as I was up that early, I called Andrew to get a status update, the summary of which was that he could get my machine back to me by either late tonight or early tomorrow, depending on how Microsoft treated him on the phone. At least the machine accepted my Windows 7 key!

Then I found Dr. Kirker's office IN the Vancity bank building: the directions given by FYI Doctors were very vague. After another eye exam, I was referred to Dr. Weiss for cataract surgery - YIKES! Since I needed a treat, I paid $20.65 cash for 1000 Mead index cards and Big Turk mini Turkish Delights in a bag at London Drugs. While I was there, I mailed off birthday cards and more stickers for Fraser to Lisa and Henry. After I get home from Brighouse Library, I will definitely have enough time to call Chrystal to make dinner plans for next week or so. My eyes are finally getting back to normal now, too! I gotta get out of here before school kids start playing ROBLOX like they did yesterday: real-life Luna! NO!


Big Turk Turkish Delights bites!

glowing_dragon: (Poop)
After leaving the library yesterday (Sunday), I took the 410 to Staples to buy three boxes of Z-Grip pens, which now look different and have "Advanced Ink Technology." I think the comfy rubber grip is worth it for writing for nine hours in a row, and outweighs the risk of cutting myself on the packaging, which I just discovered that I can cut open! DUH. It's also cheaper by $3 a box!

At home, I gave my neighbor a show yesterday when she and I went to the front door at the same time! My pants were falling down, and I couldn't get them up in time! Then I couldn't salvage them later, anyway! I called Andrew back at 5:10 because he'd called me earlier. Andrew said that download speeds and the power supply had been giving him trouble, so he had to go out and buy a new $50 power supply, but that had been included in our deal, as well as the $35 each he'd have charged me for removing two viruses from my hard drive. I almost laughed at that, but he was being totally serious, with good reason! As agreed, I called him back at 8:15 after I'd finished the pizza leftovers, and he said that he didn't think he could finish it tonight if he had to be in bed by midnight for work today. He also doesn't want to bother people past 10 most of the time, but I remember the one time he'd come by at midnight or so. That had been in the summer, however. He'll work on it when he gets home today from work and then call me in the evening. That sounds reasonable to me! I might buy some index cards today since the price per 100 is slightly more reasonable at London Drugs than Staples, and might call Chrystal tomorrow.
glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)
I went out to get my fix of computer time at Brighouse Library on Saturday yesterday, and left the building at 4, but saw the C94 going right past me, so I had to walk from there to Brighouse Station because I forgot about the 410. At least I resigned myself to being late! Ayler and Hiero seemed affectionate with the baby from what I could see. We had pizza for dinner, and I got to take some home!

Discussed Ayler having only four days left of school, my "wrinkly skin," why I was born prematurely, whether I'd held Ayler and Hiero when they were babies (of course!), my holding baby Beckett (who was asleep most of the time), Ayler lying about what I said (chocolate!) when I was RIGHT THERE, Ayler asking Jon's student Pius how much he weighed, Ayler asking Jon about stickers while he was sneezing, my doing some dishes, and Steph not coming to the baby banquet in September. I left at 7:20 and was home at 8:30. Then Andrew called me at 10 to ask for my password because he'd just gotten home from Cultus Lake and assorted things just then, but had started work at 1 AM on Friday. The updates are good!
glowing_dragon: (Consumer Whore)
I had COFFEE TIME, showered, and did laundry before leaving at 2:30 to see Rachel at The Caring Place. Also had to field a reminder phone call from Uncle Andrew's office (which I guess is now Sean's) about tomorrow's dentist appointment. They wanted me to come in at 3:30 instead of 4 - I guess so...

Went to London Drugs for more on-sale Scotties Kleenex (6x140 EnviroCare this time), chocolate Oreo Thins cookies / vanilla Oreo Thins cookies for Eat An Oreo Day today, and a small (more portable) Rubbermaid 37L storage box for my room. Thanks to a 407 which waited for me, I was home at 4 instead of a later time. After sending me a message earlier, Andrew M. called at 5:50 to wonder whether this weekend would be a good time for the new computer, and warned me that I'd be without the machine from sometime on Friday to sometime on Sunday. Discussed Cultus Lake, $40 cash money, going to the States for cheaper gas every couple of weeks, birthdays, having a life, seeing his girls, and more. This weekend should definitely be fine, I told him.


Scotties EnviroCare Kleenex, 6x140!

Via Facebook messages, Andrew M. apologized for not calling me last night, and we worked out payment for the Windows 7 computer / hard drive / Windows 7 key in writing, which is definitely a good thing. At least I have $200 instead of $150 in that cash envelope, so things can get paid off a little bit faster! Then he called at 7:20 to discuss his not being a robo-call, computer cases on wheels, sound cards, diabetes, coming to Richmond / Memory Express from Coquitlam, having the kids on the weekend and every other one, and cash vs. e-transfers.

I didn't mind if he wanted to drop by, so that's what he did at 8:20. His reaction upon finding out that this computer has 2 GB of RAM via System Tools: "HOLY CRAAAAAAAAAAAP!" We discussed possibly doing that stuff with the computer next weekend, my being welcome to drop by his place while he fiddles with things, a written receipt on the bank envelope, my computer cases, Google Chrome, my Shaw cable modem, my hard drive being compatible with his setup, and more. He laughed when I dropped all the $20 bills out of the cash money envelope, but that was fine!

While looking around for some stuff earlier today, I found a Christmas-themed envelope with Teunis's name on it, plus a Percy Jackson and Olympians: The Lightning Thief DVD box. I was going to throw those out, but decided to ask Andrew M. if Teunis might actually like it returned to him. I know how I'd feel if someone threw away my stuff, so I had to do that. Apparently, he does want them back, so we'll see how that goes.


Percy Jackson and Olympians: The Lightning Thief DVD box cover!




From my now ex-friend Daniel M.: LMNT-ology.com! Make any words out of elements in the periodic table!

Leslie!

Latinum: A rare silver liquid, often plated with gold, used as currency by the Ferengi Alliance. (STAR TREK)

Einsteinium: Identified in 1952 from the debris in the first large thermonuclear explosion. (Albert Einstein)

Lithium: The lightest of all metals - half the density of water. Discovered in 1817, and now used in batteries. (Greek LITHOS - stone)

Etherium: An extremely rare metal created by the sphinx Crucius the Mad. Vedalken wizards strive to infuse everything with etherium. (MAGIC: THE GATHERING)


In BOZOBOUND, Bozo / Paige / Robot stay overnight at the Monotoli Grand Hotel upon getting to New Pork. The next day's news headline in the FOURSIDE POST: "Over 70% of Fourside citizens support Monotoli."




In the BOZOBOUND version of Magicant, Bozo is an outline only. His mom, his sister Sharon, and his cat Smokey are in the background.

[livejournal.com profile] lilaznffairy421 and I have decided to see if we can reach the maximum number of comments on a post, which is currently set at 5000. (I guess the previous limit of 60,000-something was way too much.. probably caused the servers to crash, burn, and explode!)

We're not members of [livejournal.com profile] _commentwhores, so no worries there. If you want to help us reach that comment limit on this post, go ahead! (I thought of not allowing anyone else to comment, but that didn't promote a spirit of togetherness)

It will be interesting to see how long this takes, so the post will be dated. Whoever first leaves a comment, please date it. If we ever get to 5000 on the post, date the last one if you remember!

Leave any comments you like on any topic, but remember: I have full veto power, and I can delete anything I choose to. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *evil grin*

By the way: please include a subject line when starting a new thread in the comments section. It makes my job of sifting through emails so much easier. :D


Edit on Wednesday, 2 February 2005 @ 10:50 PM We're done! Yay! :D For Farrah's friends who want to see this for themselves, it's now public. ;)

Edit on Tuesday, 31 May 2011 @ 8:05 PM [livejournal.com profile] matt1993 wants to get this up to the newer limit of 10,000 comments.
