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.

Eric gave me a ride to Jeremy's, so I left at 6:30 with the Western Family Peanut Butter Cups and Chocolate ice cream for Christon and Jeremy's Sunday dinner / birthday dinner, plus the guys' birthday cards. We talked about our weeks, hockey games / practice, my evident cold, my stuck bedroom window, and Let's Play videos on Youtube. When we got there, we surprisingly saw ERIC HO! He tentatively verbally said yes to the 7th, then we all went to Jeremy's apartment together. When we got in, some girl was expounding on her food ingredients.

I saw Christon, Jeremy, Fred (!), Jesse, Patricia, Jon, Sheena, Geoffrey, and Randal, along with two girls I didn't know. I talked to a bunch of people: this year's church hockey pool, Acer / Raymond / Jeremy Y. / Sam / Mark in the hockey pool, auto-drafting, NaNoWriMo, writing, character perspective, Bible Study Fellowship / BSF, casserole, eating insects and tarantulas and woodworms for protein, really spicy food, quinoa / fried chicken (both not for me), kale chips, and more. No, Chinese Eric, I did not want the gravy or pop! Haha! Then I asked Jeremy whether he'd gotten my email about the MEGA SUSHI get-together: he had, when it was over! His email has been screwed up lately, which can be a problem!

I also told Christon in typical (loud) NG fashion what a douche really was - Jeremy remembered that conversation! Hey, I serve to educate where I can! No, you should not use actual douches because the vagina is self-cleaning! I do remember thinking, "What the hell are you guys discussing while I'm in the bathroom?!" hahaha. Later, Eric M. was absorbed in the church hockey pool draft while talking to Eric H. about stuff, so I had success with something else, but that quiet toilet was low-flow! At least people had the ice cream, but I'm not sure about the carrot cake someone brought. Whatever, at least people had MY item!

I also asked Jeremy (for Jimmy) what good record stores there were in Vancouver: Neptune on Main, Zulu Records on 4th (that's still around?!), and Red Cat Records which is also on Main. We finally got out of there at 10:05, and Eric unstuck my bedroom window and figured out my WD-40 at 10:30 or so. Phew! Then Shiv dragged me into Discord chat about a bunch of stuff, which was fine too.

I had a dream where Jimmy was driving me and Tommy in a van somewhere, and Jimmy kept saying that he would choose Tommy over me, even as he dropped him off at a house somewhere before going into Richmond (where we both lived for whatever reason) and hanging out with me at a crowded conference. Okay then, subconscious! I'm probably going to make a new Facebook music group called COME AS YOU ARE, too. Tommy would automatically be blacklisted because of my rule of not typing like a moron. Punctuation is important! Jimmy says he wouldn't choose him over me, so we'll see.





"Your Intellect Eclipses Your Isolation"




You are constantly seeking to know more about the world. Understanding is always your key to happiness.
You may not be a naturally social person, but you connect with others freely when shared interest, knowledge, and passions are involved.

You are curious about the world and new ideas. You are open to changing your mind, and are constantly collecting information.
You are not quick to judge someone, even if you think you disagree. You seek to learn more instead.






Not sure about the last two sentences, especially right now at my stage of life! I can be quite comfortable judging people, especially if they act defensive / manipulative / supercilious / toxic! Trust me, I had to deal with at least one of those people last week! No, thanks! I have no time for that!

Last night, Tommy was being pretty annoying with his continuous Facebook messages, so I gave him one-word answers till he apparently got the hint. Then he dragged me into a Facebook group chat with Helen and Jimmy at 10:15 PM to talk about Jen and defend her behavior. We weren't too impressed with his excuses and "staying neutral" for a manipulative and defensive and condescending "friend," to say the least! Then I was not happy when Tommy messaged me earlier today by saying that he'd allow me my space, but I could talk anytime I was willing to. What?! I later sent that screenshot to Helen and Jimmy in our own group chat. No, I am not rude for setting boundaries and telling him like it is. Jimmy apparently read everything at work today, at least.


Tommy is stupid!

I was up at 6:30 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! My glasses arm broke at approximately 7 AM this morning, so since I was going to go out to the nearby medical clinic anyway (removal for hearing!), I went to Factory Direct / Factory Optical. At least this time, I don't have Korey trying to manipulate me into seeing him instead (and into being "best friends" with Randal) like I did in early January 2008, although white Eric's concern about transit was good! The Canada Line took me to Factory Direct / Factory Optical way sooner than transit did back then, too!

My only problem was being unable to find my spare glasses in any drawer! Before I left, I called the medical clinic to see about their walk-in schedule. I got an appointment at 4:30, so I went out to the glasses place first. It was definitely more convenient to use the Canada Line to bus to Broadway and Ash: just get off at Olympic Village and walk not even half a block! The repair cost $25! I got home at 12:45 on a 407, at least. Then the clinic called me at 4:15 to check whether I was still coming in - of course! Dr. Schmaltz (?) was filling in and did my removal for hearing in an efficient manner, so I got home at 4:50. Not bad!

After COFFEE TIME, I had to go out to celebrate Dad's birthday - UGH! At least I got the Samyang 2X spicy Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen (chicken with a bomb!) noodles for Jon from Big Crazy, haha! To kill some time after leaving way early at 10:05 on a 407, I went to Shoppers and bought the cheapest baby boy card that they had ($3 is much better than $7!), plus some cream of mushroom soup since I was at the store anyway. I used the brand new self-checkout machines, and the scanning area seems to be much easier than others which I've used! Then I killed time at Book Warehouse and Trendybucks, where I had a conversation with a woman who noticed my large London Drugs reusable bag. I didn't mind that at all, actually! Jon and Harmony picked me up at the Royal Bank parking lot at 11:25-ish as advertised in Jon's 7:45 AM Facebook message. We had a dim sum lunch at Haiyi Seafood Restaurant on Main and 31st: shrimp dumplings, purple sweet potato dumplings, beef tendons, noodles, rice, egg tarts, shrimp rolls, and more! Ayler asked me if I liked "poke," which is apparently his word for blood draws. Then he said the word "vagina" because Harmony was reading a kids' book about girls' bodies to him - well, kindergarten is going to be interesting, haha.

Mom said that Steph and Lisa aren't going to be here in October because Ryan's wedding has been called off. WHAT?! Good thing that I hadn't mailed the card for baby Henry yet, so I could obscure that reference to October with a black Sharpie later on! Then we talked about getting the kids to eat something, Hiero coming over to me so he could say hi, a video of Havarti swimming, future plans, Ayler loving the lazy Susan, and other things. When Mom and Dad dropped me off at King Edward Station, I decided to go to London Drugs so I could get some more gold / silver / bronze Sharpies [Dec. 30, 2016] for my wallet (so people can feel SPECIAL!) before mailing the baby card at their post office. I got home at 2:10 on a 407, and put some tape in my wallet as well, just in case. Then I put my other gold / silver / bronze Sharpies in my new Modella cosmetics bag near the computer, along with some index cards and pens even though I have plenty in the other two nearby Sterilite boxes. Later, I read that disability payment is actually going up by $100 a month in September, so that's awesome news!

I discovered redrum today... ugh! Then Hester, her husband Ni, and two strong delivery guys dropped by at 1:45 with my BRAND NEW FRIDGE AND FREEZER from Moffat Applicances! That replaced my very old White-Westinghouse fridge and freezer from the 80s, which finally conked out in mid-May or mid-June. I wasn't impressed when Hester called me "N-G," and when the guys left my blue towel (which they used to wipe the back of the old fridge) on the bush outside the front door. I was going to throw it out anyway, but REALLY? At least I was able to save most of my fridge magnets AND the "peeing in toilet" decal from Granville Island!

Getting there was fine, as I did that in 20 minutes thanks to just managing to get the 401, but the way back was cluttered with wheelchairs and strollers and scooters! That girl in a wheelchair could have gone to London Drugs in the time it took for her to wait for the 407 at Brighouse! I finally got home at 2:15!


Wasabi Pringles! EXCLUSIVE FLAVOR!

From Not Always Working: Laren Dowling?! This seems incomplete, and like it should be LAUREN instead.




From Not Always Friendly: Ledge Ratcliffe?! A ledge is a noun, not a name!

After MORE COFFEE TIME, I went out at 5 (just getting the 401) to see Ayler and Hiero for a while for Ayler's fifth birthday as I'd planned with Harmony yesterday, who said it was sweet of me. I had Hiero's peace sign / ice cream / cupcake / doughnut / SESAME STREET / cats with sunglasses stickers and Ayler's emoji / stars / glow-in-the-dark MARVEL Heroes stickers, dinosaur birthday card, Slinky toy, and pre-historic dinosaur toys. Uncle Joe and Auntie Wing Yee were at the house as advertised, and asked if I was staying for an early and simple dinner of rice / broccoli / meat / water. Sure, why not? Ayler asked "why" questions a lot (like "why did Auntie make that face?" Because I had to sneeze!), and he apparently understands the concept of a square root already if you phrase it correctly! Both Harmony and I do not do math, so he'll have to figure it out some other way! Then he asked, "Why did Grandpa say DIE?" and some other things!

At least both boys seemed to love the Slinky (which is higher than them when stretched out), and took a couple of dinosaur toys to the Jacob's Well concert later on. (which I declined to attend) Hiero wanted me to lift him up from his eating chair after he was done eating a tiny mandarin orange for dinner, so I did that. He gave me a few stickers on my jeans, and Ayler talked a lot about the tunnels and ramps at Marine Drive. Hey, I know those because I went past there on the Skytrain to see everyone! At least I managed to get home at 7:20 on a 407, then talked to Lena on FB chat about special snowflakes and pronouns and edgy disrespect from a "friend"!


From Discord: This made me laugh yesterday. No, "Nephew #2" is NOT what I call my crappy nephew! Hahaha!

I discovered that my new chocolate ice cream has coconut flakes in it, so I had to throw it out (along with the weirdly-melted Häagen-Dazs Spirits ice cream) since I don't like coconut!


From Janina: This cat says, "Ma! They're posting weird shit again!"




Sabin, Cyan, and Shadow try to get a Fairy Ring right next to the Tent in this small room on the Phantom Train in FINAL FANTASY VI. However, it's inaccessible and therefore unobtainable unless you can find a Walk-Through-Walls code for this game.

Since I was up at 7 AM, it was COFFEE TIME!

Whenever a publisher's style guidelines eschew use of the Oxford comma, I can only assume that this results from a managerial decision to save money by cutting back on ink, because no reasonable editor would make this decision.




From Discord: Mary had a little lamb. HAD. Let's barbecue the lamb on a spit instead!

RPG Limit Break finally started today, so YAY! :D

However, I just got a blue screen of death, so BOO! At least it was courteous enough to wait until after I'd done some Notepad document editing for my Wordpress drafts...

These are all the enemies I could find in FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS!

I know that this bestiary GameFAQs document helped me a lot; thank you! Also, this walkthrough by Djibriel helped a lot when I was stuck in the game. Here's an amazing codes document. This is an enemy formation document / walkthrough. Here's a game script! Found a good Dragon's Den walkthrough which didn't have atrocious English!

This is a good code document. YAY FOR MAGICITE!

F124-EDD8 gives you 99 of every item.

I used this Youtube playlist by LowBiasGaming as a walkthrough.
