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.

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.

SONG AND ERRANDS COINCIDENCE, OH MY!

I went to H and M at 12 on a 401, but they HADN'T put my sweatpants on hold last night... ugh! They had to get a runner employee to find the sweatpants. Thank goodness that one of the three sweatpants had the right style number (06365 868), so I was able to get that blue one, paying by cash. The clerks were very apologetic that it wasn't really put on hold and that I had to wait more for the frozen computer.

Then I went to Shoppers Drug Mart to get a Hungry Man turkey microwaveable meal, getting home at 12:50 on a 401. IF I DIDN'T HAVE TO WAIT AT THE STORE, I COULD HAVE TAKEN THE 407 AT 12:30, GETTING HOME EARLIER! Merlin also just messaged me on Discord - he, Kramer, Poohbear, and Kitsune have just received their Christmas card and Soo salmon jerky! Excellent, even with the Canada Post strike backlog!

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!

Then again, he probably doesn't trust me anymore after what I did, which I can now regret and understand! The Canucks played the Stars at 1 today, and tried holding a 1-0 lead... NOPE, they lost 2-1! UGH! Afterwards, I went to London Drugs at 4:10 on a 401. I got new Cra-z-Art felts, on-sale Lever 2000 Original soap in a pack of four, and some replacement items: Garnier Fructis Pure Clean green shampoo and conditioner, NEW NIVEA Care and Diamond body wash (Diamond Shimmer Calla Lily scent), a yellow LifeCandy shower pouf, two GUM toothbrushes, Softsoap pomegranate and mango liquid hand soap, on-sale Arm and Hammer baking soda toothpaste, two dark blue GOODY toothbrush covers, and a GIBSON owl coffee mug.

While I was there, I mailed the Soo black pepper salmon jerky and a Christmas card to Kramer / Merlin / Poohbear / Kitsune in a bubble-wrap envelope... plus Christmas cards to Julie (moonshar), Sheryll (sheryll), Kitty (bornwitch / dutch_kitty), Deanna (endlessblush) [and a bonus birthday card], Corey (dwcorey) [and a bonus birthday card], Kelli (neonrose5), and Steph / Lisa / Fraser / Henry / Havarti. LONDON DRUGS NOW HAS A PUBLIC CUSTOMER RESTROOM AGAIN - YAY! Bonus: The woman cashier's name was LUCKY, and SHE didn't comment on all the "heavy" items! I got home at 5:25 on an early 407, which is fine, too.

"Bob Bobberchuk" added me to Facebook - okay, then! I went to London Drugs again at 4 on a 407 (managing to just get the bus) to mail a note to Jimmy... only $1.26! Also bought on-sale Pacari organic chocolate bars x6: Raw 100% Cacao (orange), Passion Fruit (yellow), 60% Cacao Esmeraldas (pink), Andean Rose (red), Lemongrass (green), Raw 70% Cacao (yellow-green) - $3 each for a 50g bar! Oh well...

I also got NEW on-sale Dare Cookie Dough Whippets which expire on October 30, NEW Oreo Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pie cookies which expire on February 27, 2019 / NEW Oreo Cookies Pistachio Creme Thins cookies which expire on December 2 for National Cookie Month in October, an orange replacement $2 MARTEX washcloth, Palmolive Oxy Power Degreaser dish detergent, Hilroy Press-It-Seal-It envelopes (both white and security envelopes), NEW on-sale Tic Tac Gum x3 (Fresh Mint / Spearmint / Watermelon), and NEW London Naturals Wild Orange plant-based all-purpose cleaner. Got home at 5:05 on a 407, and had lots of peace and quiet. I needed it to edit past entries, grab food photos from Google, and upload them! The Canucks played the Bruins at 7 tonight; the game went to overtime, and the Canucks won 2-1 against the nasty Bruins! BO HORVAT!

I went out to the nearby medical clinic to get removal for hearing at 1:30 today, and still had to wait almost an hour, getting home at 2:25! At least now I can hear better!


Edit at 6:30 - I used up the last of my milk unwittingly, so I had to go out again at 5:35 on a 407 to London Drugs. I got Silk almond milk and on-sale Pepperidge Farms cookies x2. Strawberry thumbprint cookies and chessmen butter cookies! I got home again at 6 on another 407.

After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 12:05 and we went banking and to Price Smart. He actually got Hester's husband Ni on the phone, too! I got on-sale Silk almond milk, duck gizzard livers so I can horrify Mike later, $1 on-sale Mott's Clamato Verde x3, limited-edition Olympic grilled pineapple Greek yogurt, on-sale GOOD TASTE dumplings x5 (Beef and Vegetable, Cabbage and Chicken, Cabbage and Pork, Pork and Chive, Pork and Celery), the ONLY non-sticky jar of preserved vegetables on the shelf, Philadelphia Cream Cheese jalapeno dip, and on-sale Tostitos Scoops chips.

Also purchased on-sale steel wool, Vileda sponges, NEW on-sale Smartfood sour cream and onion popcorn, on-sale Uncle Ben's Bistro rice x3, Olympic honey yogurt, two Marie Callender microwave meals (Three-Meat Marinara / Creamy Chicken Alfredo), on-sale Cottonelle toilet paper, Natural Clean bleach, on-sale Oasis juice x4, straw mushrooms x5, mushroom soup x2, (Koka chicken / Paldo Gomtang beef) noodles, and on-sale Kozy Shack tapioca pudding. After I got home at 1:40, I paid my Shaw bill online at home. Then I went to London Drugs at 5:55 on a 407 to mail Julie's stuff to her as long as it's still payday. I also bought store brand multivitamins, 24 mousetraps (clearing out the store's inventory), on-sale Old Dutch Gourmet Pulled Pork Wrap / Sour Cream and Green Onion and Bacon chips, and two clear Sterilite storage boxes! Got home at 6:35 to eat some dinner.

I went out at 3:15 on a 401 to London Drugs since I got my tax refund in my bank account. Mailed an Easter card and assorted stickers to Fraser and Henry, and mailed a birthday card to Vanessa in Langley. I got two small reusable bags and one large reusable bag for Jimmy (all with the 100th Anniversary design and logo), sponges, NEW PopCorners Smokin' Jalapeno with White Cheddar crisps, Dawn dish detergent x2 (lemon and original), L'Oréal Men Expert hair products x3 (glycerin 3 in 1 / taurine and arginine shampoo / ceramide shampoo and conditioner), and NEW Scrub Daddy sponges and scrubbers.

I went out in the rainy weather at 2:10 on a 407 to buy Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa cough medicine (THE BEST!) / more stickers (PJ Masks / rewards!) / ten $2 MARTEX washcloths / on-sale NEW Merci chocolate ($8.88!) / a replacement GIBSON owl coffee mug / on-sale Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup x6 / a bunch of family birthday cards (next year, I'm going to downgrade to regular!) / on-sale GUM toothbrushes x3 / on-sale blue Dawn dish detergent. While I was at London Drugs, I mailed that KEEP CALM AND BUY BABY WIPES card to Jason and Vanessa, a birthday card with stickers for Fraser to Steph, and Jimmy's pretty early birthday card while he's still in my good books. Then I got home at 3:25 to an AWESOME email from Chinese Eric, who hopes to hang out before Chinese New Year, and says it's been a bit busy at work. Ha, definitely understandable! I told Jon that I could be there tomorrow at 4:45-5, which definitely works with his teaching schedule!

IT'S APPRECIATE A DRAGON DAY! :D


I left at 2:30 on a 407 for my 3:10 appointment with Dr. Ruby. Since I was early, I went to Big Crazy to see if they had beef jerky. They did, so I bought another salmon jerky (for Paul) and extra-spicy beef jerky for myself, plus hot and sour soup mix x5 since I was there anyway. Then I went to the Dollar Tree to see if they had sizable bubble-wrap envelopes (they did not), and bought extra forks (which I've somehow lost) and a blank card for Cuya. Got my appointment done in an efficient manner, but waiting for the 410 was not ideal. Whatever - I went to customer service at London Drugs with my impossible hand sanitizer and its receipt, and the lady said I could just grab a new bottle and show that to her on my way out. PHEW! I got another bubble-wrap envelope from the post office, then showed the lady a new hand sanitizer before leaving to go to Boston Pizza.

I wandered in and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it was Pasta Tuesday, so OF COURSE I ordered a jambalaya fettuccine for old times' sake! I really just wanted the table so I could write out Paul's info on the bubble-wrap envelope, but the food was a great incentive also! After eating and paying, I went back to the London Drugs to mail those black pepper salmon jerky boxes ($23?!) and get some on-sale Pecan Praline Turtles chocolate / a Ragusa Noir chocolate bar / Mega Blocks for Hiero's birthday present. Got home at 5:25 on a 407 - it was definitely a spendy day today, but I think it was worth it. Now Paul is saying that I'm so kind when he hasn't streamed in a month (like I know about that?), and Cuya is thanking me a lot while we discuss disability and personal things, both on Discord. OH YEAH! FRIENDS! :D

Hester and the management came by for a suite inspection at 9:55 this morning, saying I needed to wash my kitchen sink and my bathroom sink, wash the bathtub, and move my mop and bucket from the balcony. Yeah, I don't think any of those are going to be done with a lot of competency or urgency! :P

After (MORE) COFFEE TIME at 1:10, I left at 2:40 to make it to Jon's by 3:30. I just missed the 49, so had to wait for the next one. Ayler and Hiero were supposed to be sleeping before snacktime and the SERVANTS dinner, but they had their eyes open the entire time I was in the room. Then they started fighting over the stuffed monkeys before I saw Hiero fall - but something cushioned it, thank goodness. They tried jumping on the bed, taking my necklace, putting the monkey "far away so no one could get it," and then I watched them as they ate pomelo / apple / pomegranate while Jon was teaching Pius. Hiero did not complain about the violin noise this week, at least!

I had an orange while smelling the caramelizing onions and discussing French onion soup / leap years / time / whether it was completely dark outside yet / not believing me when I said I was going to the bathroom / the weather next week / Jon giving me back my U2 JOSHUA TREE CD / school days and holidays / dropping me off at Langara Skytrain Station on the way to pick up Harmony before dinner. At least Jon gave me his arm to hold while going down that treacherous hard-to-see step! (I did try to go through the alleyway earlier, but their landlord had closed the back gate) After they dropped me off at 5:30 (and discussed Nathan), I mailed Corey's extra birthday card and Christmas card at London Drugs before going home at 6:20 on a 407. I had to wait for a while in line, otherwise I'd have been home at 6! Jon thanked me for coming by, which is good. I sent Nathan a FB message when I got home, as well as emailing Eric.


From Julie: Sarah Palin! Parah Salin!

glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)
I showered today. Corey said that the lady who lives at the old address probably isn't going to forward stuff anymore, so I'll just send new cards tomorrow while I'm out anyway. Jon wants me to go over an hour earlier tomorrow, but they're probably going to SERVANTS for dinner, too.


From Julie: Mynae?! I bet she's black!




From Sarah G., Postize, and Tumblr: "Fun Fact! The reason that the plural of "goose" is "geese" but the plural of "moose" is not "meese" is because 'goose" derives from an ancient Germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of "foot / feet" and "tooth / teeth," wherein "oo" is mutated to "ee." However, "moose" is a Native American word added to the English lexicon only about 400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way." "Oh, baby. Keep talking dirty to me."




Flint and Thomas come across Paul near the entrance to Tazmily Village in MOTHER 3. " *cough* *cough* Just hearing there was a *cough* fire has me *cough* *hack* coughing uncontrollably."

I went out early (for me) at 11 on a 407 to London Drugs so I could get an on-sale tall Nescafé coffee canister (December 23, 2016), on-sale De Cecco pasta (farfalle and rigatoni), on-sale Munchies Snack Mix with my last 50¢ (50 cents) off coupon, a Terry's Chocolate Orange / an on-sale Cadbury dark milk chocolate bar / on-sale Ragusa Noir chocolate bar / an on-sale big Jersey Milk chocolate bar for Eric Ho, another on-sale Ragusa Noir bar for myself, on-sale Vancouver Canucks Upper Deck candy fan bags with lollipops / mints / hockey cards x3 (one for me and one for Eric Ho - the other one to be determined - possibly Jimmy's when he gets here in May 2018), on-sale Paterson's Scottish shortbread fingers, Dawn Ultra orange dish detergent, NEW Nongshim SOON Veggie noodles, and NEW on-sale Hershey's COOKIE + Vanilla Creme / COOKIE + Caramel milk chocolate bars. Then it was COFFEE TIME when I got home at 11:45 on another 407.

I found a huge (and somewhat damp) box right by my door. Whatever - at least I don't have to go to the "nearest" Canada Post outlet to pick it up... Oh hey, it's Christmas stuff from Julie! A Peanuts Christmas card, CHRISTMAS HOUSE erasers, Snugadoo Too Super Soft purple striped socks and a red toque, two CHRISTMAS HOUSE jingly necklaces, Hot Tamales Fierce cinnamon jellybeans (better not let the kids have any...), bite-size Tootsie Rolls in a bank, 12 CHRISTMAS HOUSE pencils, CHRISTMAS stickers, and a Christmas memo book with pen!

From Reddit on October 31, 2017: NESTING PARTNER?! I know that LDRs are a thing, but just say that it's the person whom you live with! Also, SearedScallops seems to be involved in more than one relationship at a time. What?!




From Reddit on November 1, 2017: While I can say that ableism does exist because I am a disabled person myself, "creepy" is NOT an ableist term!

And another one because they can fit into the same screenshot when I collapse a bunch of comments...

From Reddit on November 1, 2017: Also, "heavy breathing" is NOT fatphobia! It's the implication that the person is sexually aroused, not that they can't go anywhere without having to catch their breath because they're morbidly obese! Wait - these comments both come from Listen_Up_Slapnuts! That explains something...

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 at 2:30 on a 401 in the fog to London Drugs, and misread "Ovation chocolate" as "ovarian cancer," which is really NOT sold in stores! Finally mailed Sheryll's card, and got Sunkist Vitamin C which expires in March 2020 / on-sale All-Bran Buds which expire in September 2018 / VSC Belgian chocolate seashells for the family Xmas dinner / MORE Connoisseur chocolate brandy beans! Got home at 3:15 on a 407, which isn't too bad even for waiting a bit in the cold. The Canucks played Philadelphia at 7 tonight, and lost 4-1. YUCKY EFFORT!

COFFEE TIME! Jon messaged me yesterday (while I was talking to Helen Y. and Tommy about forgiveness and Jimmy being a turd because of his new Pittsburgh girlfriend Jessica) to say that he'd given me the wrong time for today, so wanted me to come over an hour earlier. Sure, I guess so. Eric M. also emailed me this morning to say that he has to be at Jeremy's at 3 for Saturday food prep, so he'll be here at 2:30 or so. Sounds okay to me - thank goodness I have a book to pass the time, or I can help too! I had Jon's Elmer Chocolates assortment of caramels / fudges / cremes / truffles when I left at 2:10 to attempt to cash Lena's US cheque (SO MUCH LINEUP and can't access it for a while because of my brand-new US money account!) / buy a BBQ pork bun at Kam Do Bakery (no lineup!) / mail Corey's birthday card and Deanna's Christmas card and birthday card at the Shoppers Drug Mart post office (no lineup!) / get to Jon's new place by 3:30-ish. Turns out I managed to find the house (without numbers on the front!) two minutes before his guitar students did, so that was fine - I just had to navigate the logjam of stuff by the door! Ayler was eating cheese and an orange while Jon requested me to help with dishes; sure, why not? Hiero just "played monkey bars" and hid under the table... not very effective, buddy! No, Ayler could not eat all the chocolates for dinner like he'd been hoping! However, he did sit in my lap unbidden to play with the toys. Of course I let him do that without comment!

Later, we played with some science toy discovery kit and 200-piece solar system puzzle, and the kids seemed to be cooperating reasonably well, even if Ayler had been upset earlier because of something else. We had vegetarian shepherd's pie, pomegranate, tea, orange juice, and some salad rolls with peanut sauce for an "early" dinner. Jon was surprised that I hadn't eaten a proper lunch, but when I'd had dumplings already in the morning, a bakery item was fine for me to eat on the train. We talked about Chinese Eric / white Eric / Jeremy, "body acids" (enzymes), it being okay to say no if you don't like something (MY WISDOM!), no school tomorrow (Pro-D days!), words that start with K, a birthday party on Saturday for Ayler's friend, a "mermaid" move at gymnastics (which somehow evolved from church and holding onto bars - very interesting and confusing!), drawing kangaroos / (crappy) stars / "sad people in jail" (what?!) / very simple line snowflakes / letters on a memo pad, a bag of clothes which Mom and Dad gave me, and watching out for a step outside. (Jon later said I could avoid it by taking the laneway out and turning right) The Canucks played the Predators at 5 today, I saw a stream on Jon's laptop when it was 3-2, and I got home at 7:45 (just managing to catch all three buses since I took the 401 and train!) to discover that we'd won 5-3, and Daniel Sedin had finally scored his 1000th point in the NHL! Too bad that Derek Dorsett's career is over now, though.


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: a green Italy Fiorucci shirt, a red / white / black striped Ingmee1 shirt, an aqua Reitman's sleep shirt, a multicolored Alia shirt, a beige and white thin Alia sweater, a flowery "size XXXL" shirt (yeah right...), a lavender Jockey shirt, a dark magenta thin jacket, and a flowery Angel de Kanga T-shirt.


1000 Points for Daniel Sedin! Second player in franchise history to score that milestone number!




In Quelb Village, the FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF party encounters Bashful Wolf. "Gosh. Some old guy keeps diving into the well. Someday, I will too."




In Quelb Village, the FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF party encounters Bashful Wolf. "I don't know if I'll be able to get out, though."




In Quelb Village, the FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF party encounters this wizard after he gets out of the well. "Thanks, guys. This wolf over here keeps sneezing at me and sending me flying into the well!"




In Quelb Village, the FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF party encounters Sneezy Wolf. "People should learn not to stand in front of me if they don't wanna go flying!"

I showered and did laundry today, despite redrum not being over yet. Gotta be decent for tomorrow... *sigh* I also finally got Lena's cheque for the Lindt gingerbread truffles, which reminds me that I should get Corey's birthday card in the mail. Maybe tomorrow, too! It'll be the shit cake card from London Drugs, haha.


No, you idiot! I said they wanted a SHEET cake! Happy birthday and all that crap.

From my UNSINKABLE Bathroom Reader #21: Tyson Gay?! The really weird part is what this Christian website did to his name in June 2008! Tyson Homosexual?! HAHAHA!

I went out at 10:30 this morning on a 401 and mailed Christmas cards / Vancouver postcards / various stickers to Steph / Lisa / Fraser / Henry / Havarti, Paul Classy, Shiv in Germany, Mandy B. (dazzamre), Julie (julie709), Kitty ([profile] bornwitch / dutch_kitty), Kelli (neonrose5), Mandy B. (dazzamre), Corey (dwcorey), and Jimmy... that cost $16.91! Vancouver trams, Canadian grey wolves, BC Place, Gastown steam clock, RCMP officer on a horse, moose / squirrels / grizzly bears / Bighorn sheep, Science World, aerial map with orca whale / Canadian provinces and territories, Stanley Park totem poles, Harbour Centre and Canada Place, Coal Harbour and Stanley Park, Canadian Rockies grizzly bear, False Creek and Granville Street Bridge, and a downtown Vancouver panorama! I also bought new size 10 Jockey underwear at the Bay... luckily for me, it was on sale! Barry saw me on my way to the bus stop, and honked - I had to go around to the car's window in order to recognize him! I got home at 11:35 on a 407, which is fine. More time to do stuff for me!

I paid my Shaw bill online today. Then I called Chrystal at work at 1:10 to try arranging a time to get together during her time off. We finally decided on December 14 at 7 at the Broadway London Drugs. After that, I got Jimmy's address for Christmas card purposes, muhahaha! I think I'll repurpose Chrystal's Advent calendar for Jeremy instead, too. Not much point in giving her one midway through the month!


The FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF party finally makes it to an empty Quelb Village, where they need Ninja Wolf's permission to cross to the Hiryuu Valley beyond. The sheep here say, "You-Ram-Bah!" to them.




The FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF party enters Ninja Wolf's unlocked dojo in Quelb Village. Ninja Wolf says, "Have a taste of my Super Spinning Moon Dragon Strike of Teleporting Circles of Doom!!"




After Bartz has successfully cleaved him in half, Ninja Wolf tells the FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF party about Dorgann Klauser (Bartz's father) as well as Lonely Wolf's conception. "It was an eight-man, two-woman orgy on top of a grenade... a SEXPLOSION, if you will."

Since redrum seems to be taking forever to get out of here, I called Dr. Ruby at 10:30 to schedule an appointment. I didn't mind if it was tomorrow, so I picked tomorrow afternoon at 3! Then Lena told me later over Facebook messages that her Lindt gingerbread chocolates and bonus Hanukkah card had made it to Colorado, so YAY for that!


The FINAL FANTASY V ADVANCE party (Bartz / Lenna / Galuf / Faris), Cid Previa, and his grandson Mid Previa have found the airship! Bartz says, "Creeping Crawdads! Some monster's got a death grip on the ship's hull!" That's the Cray Claw, a boss!




After the FINAL FANTASY V ADVANCE party defeats the Cray Claw in the game's tenth boss battle, Cid says, "Ha! Looks like that overgrown monster just got served!"




Bartz responds, "With cheese biscuits and mashed potatoes!"

I went shopping at 3:55 today after COFFEE TIME: I was planning to get a sandwich, discount Halloween chocolate, and some sensitive toothpaste. Instead, I got this stuff at Shoppers Drug Mart: nut-free Cadbury Festive Friends cookies for Fraser, a discounted Halloween 24-pack of Wunderbar / Caramilk / Mr. Big / Crispy Crunch mini chocolate bars from Cadbury, an egg salad sandwich from Gourmet and Go, on-sale Lay's chips x2 (BLT and ketchup), a Gourmet and Go falafel wrap, on-sale Lipton Cup-A-Soup x4 (tomato soup with croutons), and on-sale Arm and Hammer sensitive toothpaste. While I was there, I went to the post office to buy a bubble-wrap envelope (NO TRACKING NUMBER OR BOX!) and then mail Lena's Lindt gingerbread chocolate truffles and bonus Hanukkah card to Colorado. Then I finally got home at 5 on a 407 - not bad!


From Julie M. and Pinterest: I hate when the credit card reader at the checkout asks if the amount is okay. No... it's not. I want all this crap for a dollar!




Soup, falafel, cookies, chocolates, and chips! )

After COFFEE TIME and being on the phone to Canada Post's customer service this morning for a while - where they couldn't even guarantee that my post office address pickup location could be changed - I went to Blundell Centre at 12:30 on a 407 and a 402, which of course I had to wait 15 minutes for. I finally got to the Shoppers Drug Mart post office after 1 PM and FINALLY got my 30th Anniversary OLD FAITHFUL Bathroom Reader! While I was at the store, I saw Lindt Advent calendars for sale already! UGH! I also saw on-sale Korean BBQ chips, so got a couple of bags for Jon / Harmony and Chrystal. I also got on-sale Always pads, since it's always good to stock up on those if I can - less than $15 for everything! I got to the 402 bus stop for Brighouse just in time, but somehow lost my BOLEYN INHERITANCE book at Brighouse in the excitement of seeing the 407. At least I finally got home at 2:15, but that takes way too fucking long just to pick something up at the post office!


KNIT YOUR OWN KAMA SUTRA?!

Today is Dictionary Day! :D

Canada Post didn't even make an effort to deliver my newest Bathroom Reader in my mailbox, instead sticking a "failure to deliver" notice inside without a phone call. Guess I'll have to make the trek over to Blundell Centre tomorrow before the hockey game... sigh. Of course I had to shower today, though.
