I went out at 12:30 for shopping purposes at London Drugs, so I walked there. Purchased Tazo ginger tea, a Scrub Daddy sponge, and a Scrub Daddy scrubber. I also mailed some birthday stuff to Julie, but couldn't mail actual cash. Failing that, I had to get NEW Häagen-Dazs Extras ice cream x5! (Rocky Road / Cookies and Cream / Banana Peanut Butter Chip / Brownies and Cookie Dough / Strawberry Cheesecake) Got home at 1:55 on a 401, which is okay.


Cambridge Corelle Splendor 12-piece set of cutlery!




More tea and ice cream! )


From my Endlessly Engrossing Bathroom Reader #22: HOW TO WRITE A HOW-TO-WRITE BOOK?!




Canada Post bubble-wrap envelope! Perfect for salmon jerky (Paul / Jimmy / Julie / Kramer and crew / Cuya) and other such fragile things!




Scotch bubble-wrap envelope!




From Pete and Hockey Memes: "What do the Flyers have in common with the Titanic? They're both at the bottom of the Atlantic." I could have sent this to my ex-friend Jimmy, but he’d get too hurt by it, which was something I did not want to do at the time.

SHOPPING RUNDOWN!

H and M: DRAGON HOODIE on clearance ($15 off) from $39.99 to $24.99! :D

London Drugs near my house: Red MARTEX bath towel, medium blue MARTEX bath towel, NEW on-sale Strawberries and Cream Lindt chocolate truffles, NEW limited-edition on-sale Blueberries and Cream Lindt truffles, NEW on-sale Milk and White Spring Edition Lindt truffles, on-sale Colgate Optic White toothpaste, and Colgate KnockOut MaxFresh toothpaste in Mint Fusion.

Broadway London Drugs: Fart-O-Matic birthday card for Jon for 2020, brown MARTEX bath towel, on-sale Godiva dark chocolate Easter bunny, and an on-sale Kit Kats Senses Easter bunny.

Shoppers Drug Mart: On-sale Philadelphia chip dip (dill pickle!), and on-sale President's Choice bite-size round tortilla chips! Gotta have it for Chips and Dip Day today and tomorrow!


Before COFFEE TIME, I called Chrystal to see what time we should meet tonight; 7:30 sounds good to me! I went out early at 5:30 to see if I could get that dragon hoodie at H and M after figuring out all the sidewalk and bus stop closures. They were all in a Medium size, but I figured that I'd make it work somehow. I didn't even care that I couldn't exchange it or get a refund since it was on clearance! $15 off - from $39.99 to $24.99! Then I went to the nearby London Drugs, then to the Broadway / Cambie London Drugs. Figured I'd spend my $75 tax refund while I was out and could do stuff, and I did! Now I have to wait for the April credit to go through, ha ha ha...

As I was reading an ARCHIE book, Chrystal came up to me - she was on time today! I told her that I had a birthday card for her, and not to worry about the rest of the stuff in my bulky reusable bag - that was all for me! We went to Pho Extreme Xe Lua to catch up: her parents going to Dubai pretty soon, Ethan and Mike being sick with the flu, my new Reddit friends, the whole Woob and Twitter screenshots saga, Benjamin being about the same age as Beckett, Beckett screaming as loud as the 80s music inside Como Taperia, and her knowing that I liked spicy stuff. After dinner, I went home instead of joining Brian, Paulo, and others at the American. I did stop by Shoppers Drug Mart when I got to Brighouse so I could get the aforementioned chips and dip. Got home at 9:10 on a 401, no thanks to MORE complicated sidewalk closures! They did make a temporary crosswalk near the intersection at my place, though.


From Sara and BrazilFlair on Tumblr: Here’s my first attempt at synonym rolls. Just like Grammar used to make!




Lots of dips! Lots of chocolates! FOOD TIME! )

Might go to Holly's tonight. We'll see!


From Julie: Bron Holland?!




On September 19, 2015, I went to the Pint to meet Aaron / Kathy / Sabrina / Julian for a belated / early birthday celebration. I passed by the Prado Café on my way there, and thought of Janina for obvious reasons. Eventually, she messaged them on Facebook, and they sent her a mug for free!

The Canucks played the Flames in their first game of the 2018-2019 regular NHL season tonight at 7, and won 5-2! Pettersen got his first NHL goal on his first shot in his first game - his family was there, too!

I got a phone call and email from FYI Doctors, saying that my NEW GLASSES are ready! At least my spare glasses don't have to be from the late 90s or early 2000s now! So I went out there at 4:35 before they closed at 5:30, to get my NEW GLASSES! Then I went to London Drugs to get NEW Hungry Buddha Jalapeno-Lime coconut jerky, NEW Late July Organic Snacks Jalapeno-Lime tortilla chips for the timing coincidence since it is also late July time-wise, an Alter Eco Pacific Salt and Malt chocolate bar to replace the one that I gave to white Eric on Monday night, and NEW mini AERO Canada peppermint balls. I also mailed a birthday card and some stickers to Fraser, and put the chocolate items in my handy freezer bag. Almost as soon as I got home at 5:20 on a 407, I had to poop.... but I ended up throwing away my panties AND shorts anyhow! UGH!


Via Janet on LJ: This wife is offering a coffeepot to her grumpy husband in the morning. "Ready for your performance-enhancing drug?"

GOOD TASTE dumplings! JOY dumplings! )


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!

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!

I did some minor Boxing Day shopping today, going out to London Drugs on a 401 at 4:30. Bought 300 index cards / on-sale Dark Chocolate Peppermint Almond Roca / on-sale Lipton chicken noodle soup / an on-sale Bendick's Mint Collection box / on-sale Ganong Chicken Bones (I remembered discussing that with Sheryll recently!) / on-sale Dark Chocolate Peppermint Almond Roca / replacement Scotch scissors / on-sale Silverado Stagg Chili / heart stickers / star stickers. Then I had to wait an HOUR in the freezing cold for the 407, so I had some hot chocolate when I finally got home at 5:55.

I got a surprise Christmas card in the mail from Karla yesterday, so I had to return the favor while I was out today anyhow! Also got a Snoopy and Woodstock Christmas card with ice cream / Christmas cat / Christmas dog / taco / emoji / hamburger / butterfly / cactus stickers from Mandy (dazzamre), a Two of Swords tarot Christmas card / Twinings Söderte tea x3 (Fruity and Floral) from Katherine (cactus_rs) in Stockholm in Sweden, and a Christmas Hello card / Christmas note / various Australian postcards x 24 [Love The Mornington Peninsula x8 / Australian War Memorial / PAINTERS / National Archives of Australia / Tarkine / DIARY OF A WIMPY KID / Bangarra Dance Theatre / Melbourne Zoo / Best of British / bugs of Melbourne Museum / Hokusai / Mental Health Australia / Princess Highway / Linden Postcard Show / Show Us Your Tattoos / REMOTE ALIGNMENTS at the Mars Gallery / THE FATHER at the Melbourne Theatre Company] from Deanna (endlessblush) in today's mail. Corey said that his parents had moved, so I got the new address from him while we were both online anyway. I totally thought they'd moved to Ontario for a second until I re-read the address! Then I talked to Helen briefly about things, which definitely made me feel better - CLOSURE!

After COFFEE AND ASPIRIN TIME at 2:30, I went out at 3:20 to my dentist appointment with Sean. It went pretty well (he seemed surprised that I was flossing), but I did hear they were moving next year sometime to Fraser and 19th. Not so convenient anymore, but maybe I'll find new haunts over there. Of course we caught up briefly and wished each other a great Christmas / New Year! I went to the post office at Oakridge afterwards - right upstairs by the Photo Express near the elevators - to mail Karla's card, then went to Shoppers since I had time before the next 407. I got some Sour Cream and Bacon Ruffles chips with one of my coupons, plus some brand-new on-sale De Cecco and Catelli pasta: fusilli, rotini, and penne rigate x2 in much more reasonably-sized boxes. I got home at 5:20 and threw away the old pasta to make room for the new.

PRODUCT WARNING: Since I'd found a bone in my Western Family pasta the other evening, I am BANNING IT FROM MY APARTMENT!

I went out to the pharmacy next door at 1:30 to get my prescription refilled. It's slightly better than telling them every time on the phone that I don't have or remember a prescription number! I was home at 1:45, only to discover that I couldn't tag non-friends on Facebook anymore! UGH!

I went to Richmond Public Market at 2:15 to see if they had stove pans at that "second-floor haircut shop" which Hester had mentioned. They did, but they also had a no-return policy, which I was not comfortable with. THAT WAS A WASTE OF TIME AND ENERGY! Then I went to the liquor store, where I selected some NEW on-sale 40% Crown Royal Deluxe whiskey ($2 off for 1.14 litres!) which included a tiny 50mL sample of NEW 90% Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye whiskey. I then decided to go to Specialty Chicken and Wonton House so I could try a NEW Buddha's Feast (a New Year's goal) as takeout. My last stop was London Drugs for a spare red face cloth, new Scotch scissors for my table since the old ones were rusty, NEW peanut butter Whittaker chocolate / NEW peppermint Whittaker chocolate for myself, on-sale assorted Lindt Easter eggs x2 (one for Ayler and Hiero / one for me), on-sale $2 Dawn dish detergent (Mediterranean Lavender), on-sale Hershey's Eggies, NEW Carmex lip balm x2, a replacement Gibson owl coffee mug (with a sticker which was easily peeled!) since my sunflower and rooster one kinda cracked, and on-sale store brand 40 garbage bags x2. I got home at 3:45 when it was just starting to rain with random raindrops. By the time I went out two hours later to throw my garbage out, it was really raining - good timing on my part!
