After COFFEE TIME at 4:45, I left at 6:30 to meet Chrystal at the Broadway London Drugs at 7-ish for a belated birthday dinner treat! I had her Want Want Snowy Crackers from Big Crazy, of course. I was standing around reading MAD MAGAZINE when Chrystal came up behind me. We summarily went to Original Joe's after she said that I could pick anywhere I wanted because it was her treat, and we waited about 20 minutes, "sharing" a table with two other guys. She had a burger with dill sauce and fries (which I ate - plus the pickle from the burger), and I had steak and salmon bites with vegetables instead of rice because that would take too long. We talked about her nephew Ethan liking water / numbers / Science World, and definitely knowing what he (doesn't) want, and calling Chrystal "Yee Ma" / not hugging Auntie Kathy after he says he will. I told her about Ayler and Hiero both wanting to hug me - and going through with it - and the Thanksgiving dinner recently. Yup, Jon and Harmony really need a place to live, and my parents are travelling AGAIN. The waitress apparently loved my "warm" red sweater from Sears, so I definitely let her touch it, haha! COMPLIMENTS!

Chrystal's going to take two weeks off at the beginning of December, and it sounds like she really needs it! I said I'd call her at the end of November to set something up since that made sense to me! I wondered whether she'd thought about living on her own, and people have definitely asked her that before! Not that there's anything wrong with living with her parents, of course! We talked about Christmas cards being on sale at London Drugs already, THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, just watching TV when she should go to bed way before 2 when she has to work at 9, the MEGA SUSHI dinner, a new Chipotle opening up around that area soon, her sleeping in and "wasting" her weekend mornings, Emily / Mike, Phil and Grace's baby girl, and not going to church as much. When we had to leave (after I exchanged a bent fork for a new one, and after thanking Chrystal for the dinner), I wanted the guys beside us at another table to make way, but got into a conversation with one of the (brown-haired / scruffy-ish) guys about Bo Horvat / Reddit / my looking 21 / Donald Trump / his jokingly blaming me for his not getting a burger anytime soon. I even touched him on his shoulder and arm, which is pretty good for me, all things considered! I got home at 10, and then proceeded to blow people's minds in the r/hockey Discord when I revealed that I'd been alive in 1991! (context: going to the West Edmonton Mall)


From Julie S. and Snapchat: I think my Icy Original Lemonade may be expired... Sell by November 13, 1657?!




Steak and salmon bites from Original Joe's! SterlingĀ® Silver sirloin and Pacific salmon in a sweet soy glaze over brown rice; with shredded carrot, red pepper, and green onion. Creamy sesame steak sauce on the side.

After I had COFFEE TIME, I called Kids Physio after Googling the phone number. They actually DID have my red Compass Card because someone found it (presumably in the bathroom), which is a relief! I opted to have them hold it until Ayler's next appointment on Wednesday. Barry picked me up at 12:30 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got on-sale Olympic organic yogurt x2 (peach / raspberry), JOY dumplings (pork and vegetable / lamb and onion / pork and chives), on-sale store brand bottled water x2 for $5, Nature Clean Oxygen Bleach (for $12?!) Body Zone purple / black fingernail clippers, $1 Coffin Crisp / $1 Ghostly Kit-Kats, a Cookies and Cream Kit-Kat, Sour Cream and Bacon Ruffles chips, a peanut butter Oh Henry chocolate bar, $1 store brand Western Family mixed beans x12 (last day of the sale!), on-sale store brand perogies x2 (potato and cheddar cheese / potato and cottage cheese), Koka spicy black pepper noodles, and a can of store brand mushroom pieces. Also purchased some Juzz Mee curry noodles (partly because I told Shiv on Discord this morning I would), Curry Mee white curry noodles, Penang white curry noodles, Silk almond milk x2, on-sale Six Fortune beef noodles, on-sale Sau Tao black pepper noodles, Vedan Bah Kut tea noodles, and pink Excel White gum x3.


From a friend of Ryan's: Just eat it! The Nike swoosh is a pizza slice, hahaha!




Olympic organic raspberry yogurt!




Bottled water and more! )

THIS ENTRY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NON-ALIGNED TAGS.


Today is Left-Handers Day! I had to deal with a lot of online drama this morning, which involved some rude and condescending Penguins fan named Jennifer who thought that she had an IQ of 169, and that my "attitude problem" could be solved by talking to her. I don't THINK so! Thank goodness Helen Y. understood, while Jimmy could definitely relate, and Tommy was okay with people leaving that Metropolis Division group chat on Facebook. Hopefully, Jimmy and I can forge more of a friendship! I think it's a good sign that he says he trusts me (gotta make sure that stays) and wants me to speak my mind / anything to him. I'll just take this friendship slowly, as per usual.


From Julie: Talton English?!




From Not Always Working: Khristy Monigold?! The only acceptable spellings for that name are Christy and Kristy. MAYBE Kristi or Cristy.




In FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS, the party finally makes it to the Ancient Castle dungeon. They find Queen Yunalesca's Diary in a room to the right of the throne! "A book, with a gem-encrusted cover... Queen Yunalesca's Diary."




In the GBA version of FINAL FANTASY VI, the diary is simply "The Queen's Diary." In the SNES version (not pictured), the diary is even more simple: "Queen's Diary." It says, "The Queen's Diary... I have fallen in love with Odin. It is a forbidden love, I know... But the flames of passion obey not rule or reason..."




This is from the SNES version: If Terra is in the FINAL FANTASY VI party at this point, she will have something to say after everyone reads the Queen's Diary. "Love between a human and an Esper..." Yes, that is her defining character trait!

Steph called me at noon to catch up. She'd tried calling me last week to say that she'd received the card I'd mailed for baby Henry, but I'd been sleeping! She said that Cecilia and Angela Mok had visited her and baby Henry, and so did Sandy's family. Thank goodness they didn't go with Michael for the baby's middle name (after Lisa's dad Mike), but went with Mike's middle name instead. Fraser apparently loves the animal book I got him, wanting Lisa to read it to him multiple times a day EVERY DAY (much to her chagrin), and is now recognizing and naming a lot of those animals by himself. He also likes baby Henry, wanting to kiss him a lot, which is good! Steph says that Hiero is "very naughty" when it comes to Mom, and apparently, he hit her the other day. Go, Hiero!

Apparently, Mom wants Steph to intervene in Ryan and Morgan's cancelled wedding - that's not her business, and she probably wouldn't want to, anyway! Fraser was at daycare right then (which is more interesting than being at home with just Steph and the baby), and Henry was making funny noises when he was waking up from a nap. I said hi to him and told him that I was his aunt, which apparently got no reaction, but that's okay since he's a baby. I also told Steph that Ayler now knows the word "vagina," and that our parents were indeed horrified when he said that at lunch! I can imagine him asking me whether I have one - oh dear. Imagine if he busts that word out at kindergarten when he starts school! Steph says that she and Lisa are thinking of coming here in November around Remembrance Day weekend, and that Lisa just transplanted her job over when they moved - good stuff!


From Janina: I found the G-spot in a parking garage, guys!




From Julie S. and Snapchat: A chili and rice BOWEL?! Fresh LAME juice?! Fresh LAME soda?!

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
I got up at 8 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT!


HAPPY CANADA DAY! 150 YEARS OLD! YAY FOR THE SESQUICENTENNIAL!




From Aaron: Canada 150!




From Janina and Rebel Circus: The fact that there's a highway to hell and only a stairway to heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers.




From Julie S. and Snapchat: Homemade crap dip?!

Hester came by at 4:20 to check the freezer. As I thought, the dumplings did not freeze overnight! Thank goodness I kept that old bag for proof, as she'll NOW call maintenance after the long weekend. I guess I can call Barry on Tuesday, then.


From Janina: Christian Grey from FIFTY SHADES OF GREY says, "I'm Mr. Grey, and I can bring all your sexual fantasies to life." Dr. Frank N Furter from the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW says, "Bitch, please."




From Julie S. and Snapchat: The Good Guys classic burger contains ANUS beef?! Then there's a CHICKEN POX pie?!

From Janina: The Banana Splits are still a better band than One Direction!




From Julie S. and Snapchat: Spic-fried meats?! Also, chips (fries) are not sheeps!




Relm in Mysidia, on Sabin: "What? Who is this puffed-up aerobics instructor, anyway?"

After seeing KFC referenced on Not Always Right, I decided that I had to go out and get some for lunch at 2:10, just managing to get the C94. I got a six-piece combo for $10.50, and the price and quantity was better than what I was expecting! Before that, I went to Indigo Spirit / Chapters to browse, and got Strange History (Bathroom Readers' Institute). I even asked about getting a replacement Plum Rewards card (like I did last time I was there), and actually got one! HA! to the clerk last time who said they didn't have any more physical cards! No, I didn't get a bookmark, but I have plenty of spares here at home. I got home at 3:10 on a 407, and now I want to make a Facebook album devoted to the books I've read or owned. Getting all the book covers will take a while, but Goodreads will make the whole process slightly easier!


From Krista: Sea serpent dragon capsizing a ship!




From Janina: Hey, Laser Lips! Your mother was a snowblower!




From Julie S. and Snapchat: A foul festival with food?! Also, a steamed vegetable item on a menu includes SWEET PORN?!

Ness, Paula, Jeff, Poo, and the Super Plush Teddy Bear finally make it to the Scarabi desert in MOTHER 2 DELUXE. By this grove of palm trees, Porky's stink still hangs in the air... you can see his poop pellets! EW!

From Not Always Right: Diamando May?!




From Not Always Right: Peter Pop Bumper?!

I called Hester at 10:20 AM to see whether I could get laundry tokens (September 23, 2016) at that early hour, and I could. At least this time, she didn't bitch about how "not polite" I was on the phone (I'm not a morning person or very "fake polite" after getting up!), how I was taking "too long" to go up one floor or suggest that I take a set of stairs I never use because they're too far away on my floor yet convenient for her! Her husband Ni gave me the laundry tokens after taking care of an old man, and I counted them out first before going back to my own apartment.


From Sarah G. and Keri Beevis: Moist people aren't offended by the occasional typo.




From Reddit: Here's Jesus speaking to a crowd! So I was like, "I'm the son of God," and they were like, "No way." And I was like, "Yahweh."




I'm in a Med Reminders private chat on BGG's Discord channel server, and someone changed the icon to this on April 21. Alarm clock, pills, aspirins, capsules, and a check mark!

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!




Mom in a kimono!




This menu in Toledo, Spain, is from Reddit: Beans, peas, artichokes, and spinach attacked with ham! ENGRISH!

Since I was up early at 4:50 AM (ugh), I had some COFFEE TIME. I finally unsubscribed from Trivia Today and Bizarre News because of all the ads that Gopher Central and PulseTV were letting through - atrocious! There was a Shaw and phone outage at 11:30, so I decided to go to bed. Woke up at 1:30, and the phone was working, so I tried to call Chrystal at work to see when a good time would be to get together. Apparently, she was off today through Thursday. Okay, then!


From Janina: NASCAR presents the Walmart 500.




From Julie S. and Snapchat: Ginger dumping and deep-fried baby are on menus?!

glowing_dragon: (No Netspeak!)
From Janina: Fifty shades of grey!




From Julie S. and Snapchat: Whole-meat toast?! BEAF meatballs and a Vagitarian Deluxe pasta item on a menu?!
