After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 2 to see Rachel at the Caring Place. Last session for April, oh boy! A bunch of us are going to wander around Main as well. Gotta get ready to meet Paulo at Starbucks!

After COFFEE TIME, I discovered a TOILET TANK EMERGENCY! It wouldn't flush, which was NOT ideal because Chinese Eric is coming over tomorrow! Besides, I really didn't want to go across the street every time I needed to pee! So I bit the bullet and called Hester a few minutes later since I needed to leave at 2, who scolded me for not being perfectly polite and composed on the phone AND for not writing a note. Fuck off - I have to deal with YOUR limited English, and I don't have TIME to write a note to have you deal with the problem after the weekend! Eventually, I managed to communicate that the toilet flush wasn't working, and Ni came by within ten minutes and actually fixed the issues. In that time, Brian had already offered to come over - THIS is what my new friends do for me?! WOW! :D

I left at 2 on a 414 to see Rachel at the Caring Place. Then I went to Shoppers to buy a Stouffer's Saute Sensations Country Beef Pot Roast microwaveable meal, a President's Choice meat lasagna for a future hangout which is not tomorrow afternoon (expires on December 12), Ben and Jerry's Peanut Butter Cookie Dough / Chocolate Milk and Cookies ice cream, Breyers Delights ice cream in Vanilla Cupcake plus Creamy Chocolate, and President's Choice mango ice cream! Should be yummy!

After I FINALLY got a 401 after FOUR 408 Ironwood buses in a row and a 407 at Brighouse after waiting since 4:10, I went to the pharmacy next door to see if I could get my eyedrops prescription filled before they closed. Adam could do it right then, but I didn't have time to chat or to wait for the previous chatty customer to finish because I had frozen things in my bag, so I was in a rush by default! The instructions are the same, anyway. I got home at 4:45 and FINALLY shoved everything into the freezer, almost before the items started really melting! Good thing I can probably get Chinese Eric to help with opening the eyedrops tomorrow if I remember... so I put them on the table with the low-tech blue guestbook and everything else!

I also learned that this construction will be 24/7 till the end of May... they're an exemption to the noise bylaw?! WHAT THE FUCK!

It's International Women's Day today! After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME, I left the apartment at 1:55 because I had to walk to Brighouse station and be on time to see Rachel at The Caring Place - thanks, endless construction and sewer upgrades! I even got a snack of a mixed fruit bar, grape juice, and a Smarties chocolate egg for International Women's Day at the end of the session. PHEW! Yes, I got angry and frustrated at Rachel, but she was fine with it. LET ME VENT FIRST!

Last night, I discovered a cut in my BRAND-NEW bag of Jalapeno Cheddar Cheetos! The Cheetos had slightly spilled in the plastic tub, so I had to throw them out - UGH! I was too tired or lazy to go out in the cold AGAIN to check my reusable bag, so I did that this morning - yup, there were more Cheetos in there, along with a grease stain on my notebook! Had to throw out the bag and the notebook, and put the scarf and Canucks gloves in the laundry hamper.

I left at 2 to go to The Caring Place to see Rachel on a 414. Then I went to London Drugs for a new replacement red Hilroy notebook / a big new reusable bag / variety hot chocolate pack (Turtles / Coffee Crisp / After Eight) / on-sale Lindt chocolate bars x2 for Harmony's birthday (Caramel and Sea Salt / Lime Zest) / an on-sale white chocolate Aero bar / an on-sale mint chocolate Aero bar for National Chocolate Mint Day today before going home at 4:05 on a 401, which I managed to get just in time before the SNOW started to stick!

I went out at 2:05 on a 414 to meet Rachel at the Caring Place, getting home at 3:50 on a 407. Dr. Wise's office (Megan) called me at 4:15 to try scheduling a last-minute appointment for tomorrow at noon to REPEAT an eye test that I thought the Willow UBC Eye Care Clinic already did back on November 15! Dr. Wise then said that she wanted to make sure I got the best lens possible, and she needed the info before going into the OR, so couldn't do it while I was asleep during the operation. Okay, I guess... Megan did say it was a hassle, which is right, because I said it was an inconvenience, then felt bad about it. I'd been planning to relax, but whatever! I have to be positive and believe that people will help me if I'm lost - which is bound to happen downtown!

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!

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!

Dr. Wise's eye clinic called me at 11:40 AM to say that they had a prospective date for my cataract surgery, which they recommended I take: January 10, 2019! (a Thursday) After leaving Barry a message about it AND being interrupted by Hester about insurance, I called Chrystal at noon at work to see if we could have an annual Christmas dinner (Friday, Dec. 21 after my dentist appointment with Sean), while having COFFEE TIME! Now I can plan stuff - SO GOOD!

I went out at 2 on a 414 to see Rachel at The Caring Place, then tested my Big Crazy colander against enoki mushrooms and macaroni simultaneously - EVERYTHING WORKS WITHOUT LOSING FOOD TO THE HOLES! YAY! The Canucks played Los Angeles at 7 tonight; the game went to overtime, and the Kings won 2-1.

Once Lucas and Boney have seen Jackie and Bronson at the train station in Chapter 4, they go back to the Tazmily square and see Fassad talking to Wess. "Please be careful not to trip, get hurt, or go bald on your way home."

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME, I went out at 1:50 on a 401 to get two more on-sale 6x126 Scotties Kleenex boxes at London Drugs, since the sale expires tomorrow and I was going to be out anyway. While I was there and waiting in the wrong line because this dude decided to delay everyone by not having a coupon or card available OR payment at the ready, I decided to ask the cashier to open the recalcitrant multivitamin bottle from yesterday, just in case. (I'd brought it along to see if Rachel could open it) The clerk could not, but thankfully believed me that I'd bought it yesterday, so I WAS ABLE TO DO AN EXCHANGE WITHOUT THE RECEIPT! PHEW!

Afterwards, I thankfully managed to catch the 414 on Minoru to see Rachel at The Caring Place (talking a LOT about Sandy / banking / disability plans / boundaries), then I rushed home afterwards! I thought I discovered a REDRUM smell after eating a bowl of pasta with straw mushrooms, Prego pasta sauce, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. IT WAS LAUNDRY TIME AFTER THE FIRST PERIOD, JUST IN CASE! (pun intended, hahaha) I also sent Frances a quick "happy birthday" email for tomorrow while I remembered. The Canucks played the Wings at 4:30 today; the game went to overtime, and lost 3-2 in a SHOOTOUT! Now I feel the Monthly Drain Sleep Experience (MDSE) coming on... ZZZZZ...

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 1:40 on a 401 (just missing a 407!) to do some shopping before seeing Rachel at The Caring Place. I got some takeout Boston Pizza Pasta Tuesday for National Pasta Month in October (Jambalaya Fettuccini!), then went to Price Smart while waiting on that. Bought some NEW on-sale limited edition Doritos Dinamita Chile Limón snacks, NEW on-sale limited edition Doritos Dinamita Nacho Picoso snacks, beef tripe with ginger and green onion for World Tripe Day tomorrow, NEW on-sale Cinnamon Bun Oreos, and NEW on-sale Birthday Cake Oreo Cookies!

When I finally got home at 3:55 on a 407, I discovered that the spicy sauce from the tripe container somehow got on my Oreo cookie packages... YUCK AND EW! I had to open the cookies and put them all in a huge Ziploc bag! Luckily, it didn't seem to get on the Doritos chips packages. (why didn't the cashier put the tripe in a separate bag...)

After COFFEE TIME, I left for Jon's at 1:40 on a 401. I had their reusable tote bag from Thanksgiving, and their Bobo's Oat Bars x4 (Chocolate Chip / Maple Pecan / Coconut / Lemon Poppyseed) from yesterday. I got there on time (after sitting on some guy's bank statements because he left them on the seat beside him - I WISH I'D BLED ON THEM!), and was able to hang out with Ayler for about half an hour at home by ourselves since Jon had to go somewhere and Harmony had to pick up Hiero at St. Giles preschool. I passed the time by looking at Ayler's school agenda, learning, asking Ayler about the pumpkin patch today, and eating some chocolate while Ayler put together his Canada puzzle quietly.

After we had a very early dinner of Thanksgiving leftovers at 4, Penny the therapist came over at 5. She told both me and Harmony not to react to whatever Ayler was doing "wrong," but REALLY? I got to hang out with Beckett (who was in his bouncer sometimes), and Hiero "told on me" for bouncing the baby in said bouncer - whatever! I was gentler than either of them were when they were trying to "make him feel better"! Beckett held his favorite colorful toy for quite a while, is starting to vocalize, and "screamed" at me excitedly. So cute! I was fine with him on his colorful mat as well when Ayler and Hiero had bathtime. Yes, I laughed when I heard bubbles coming from both ends! Jon says the cleaners are coming over Monday at 10 AM, and Harmony says it'll only be two hours, but that's fine. I thanked her again on my way out!

When I finally left after bathtime and bedtime, I exchanged the Febreze air fresheners (Harvest Pumpkin / Hawaiian Aloha) from yesterday for Febreze fabric deodorizers at the nearby Save-On Foods. Next time, I should just get them from London Drugs since they're cheaper over there by $2! I got the 3 Marine Drive station bus (which only comes once every half hour) with a minute to spare, and finally got home at 9:05 on a 407, which wasn't helped by the fact that the 401 was already at the bus stop! At least I finally had peace and quiet when I got home, but I wondered what was going on with a certain someone. WE WERE HAVING A GOOD FEW DAYS AND CONVERSATION, JIMMY! WHY BLOCK ME FOR NO REASON THIS MORNING?! Lena says that he sounds insane...

Earlier, I did use my second pink $10 Mid-Autumn Festival gift certificate at PriceSmart for on-sale assorted Quaker oatmeal x2, on-sale Febreze air fresheners x2 (Hawaiian Aloha and limited-edition Pumpkin Harvest), Bobo's Oat Bars x4 for Jon and Harmony (Chocolate Chip / Maple Pecan / Coconut / Lemon Poppyseed), and on-sale Vileda sponges x9. I also bought Crown Royal Black whiskey (on the recommendation of my Discord friend Dan) and Steamworks Beer pumpkin ale at the liquor store. The Canucks played Carolina today at 4, and lost 5-3. Then I showered... and THEN realized that I bought air freshener instead of fabric refresher dedorizer! Ugh, I wonder if I can exchange it...
