THERE WAS ANOTHER WATER SHUTOFF TODAY - NOT IMPRESSED! After I had COFFEE TIME and fielded an early-morning phone call from Megan at the Burrard eye clinic (Dr. Wise wants to see me this week to check her lens choice?! Friday it is...), Barry picked me up at 11 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got bananas, on-sale Silk vanilla almond milk, on-sale Nissin noodles x4 (XO Sauce / seafood / black garlic oil / sesame oil), Koka Noodles x2 (Spicy Black Pepper / Tomato), on-sale Uncle Ben's rice x3 (Smokey Flavor / Tomato and Herb / Mushroom Wild rice), MAGGI LETUP / Maggi Kari Letup noodles, and one litre of NEW on-sale Yamasa soy sauce which expires in late October 2020 (I was able to pull off the annoying tab in the store!) / NEW Allen's Vinegar 500 mL of malt vinegar (crammed with the white vinegar and red vinegar on the Western side of Price Smart) / 700 grams of on-sale Laoganma spicy chili crisp oil for DUMPLING SAUCE! (my jar opener thankfully worked on that when I got home!)

Also bought on-sale Brookside Chocolate x2 (Blackberry and Honey / Pomegranate), NEW on-sale Peace Tea cans x2 (Sno-Berry / Mango Green Tea), Lucky Me! Mami Beef Noodles, one Stouffer's Sauté Sensations microwaveable meal (Grilled Chicken Teriyaki), Western Family frozen veggies in the BIG bag, NEW Olympic Dairy small yogurt tubs x3 (Fig Honey / Citrus Cardamom / Smoked Applewood Vanilla - each 325 grams), Puritan canned Irish stew, on-sale JOY dumplings x5 for the Big Crazy price of $4.99 per bag (the last five available - Pork and Vegetable x2 / Lamb and Onion x2 / Pork and Chive), NEW on-sale Tropical Salsa Kettle Chips, and on-sale mint Oreo cookies. I think I'm looking forward to all the snack food! Haha!

Additional purchases: On-sale Old Dutch Humpty Dumpty cheese sticks (Habanero and Blue Cheese!), on-sale Excel spearmint Soft Chew gum x3, on-sale Western Family bottled water x12 (gotta keep ahead of all these sudden and unexpected water shutoffs around here lately...), Ben and Jerry's Moophoria ice cream x2 (Peanut Butter Cookie Dough to replace the one that Paulo ate last week on Thursday even though he says he owes me / NEW Caramel Cookie Fix), NEW on-sale Hardbite chips x3 (Sweet Ghost Pepper / Avocado and Lime / Black Sea Salt), NEW on-sale Ruffles Flaming Hot BBQ chips, and NEW Campbell's Everyday Gourmet Asparagus and Sweet Basil soup. I got Ray as my cashier, and Barry made a comment about how it took me two hours at the store. I wasn't expecting to take 20 minutes to find the malt vinegar, no thanks to some employees there! After I got home at 12:55, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online. Then I waited out the water shutoff - it was back on by 5:30, THANK GOODNESS!


My WHATEVER T-shirt... YAY!




Hand sanitizer, lots of chips, noodles, canned stew, iced tea, and more! )

Paulo let me know yesterday that he could come over tonight for noodles and ginger ale, which totally worked for me! Definitely no alcohol after last Friday for him, especially not with the stated effects on his body and liver! Today, he said he could come over around 8 unless that was too late - nope! He ended up taking a long nap and came over around 8:30 instead, but that was fine. Before I forgot, I asked him to take care of the wonky stove element wire. Thank goodness that he was able and willing to help! (and also to do his own dishes) I had cued up some relaxing FINAL FANTASY video game music, and we talked about that franchise / EARTHBOUND / MOTHER 3, MEGA MAN, DRAGON QUEST / DRAGON WARRIOR / instrumental music while cooking and eating noodles.

We talked about that smoke-filled ride from Chilliwack to Richmond in 2008 (starting off the summer of hell), Tinder bios, NO revenge porn, private things, Nissin black garlic oil noodles, the Samyang curry chicken terrorist noodles which ALMOST defeated him ("I'M DYING!" - I didn't care if he posted a photo of the bowl to Discord!), cigar / cigarette smoking, vaping, not judging Brian for his addiction or choice, Discord, Holly, Darryl being at a Metric concert, a Portland trip for Darryl and some others tomorrow, not interrupting stuff, Guu, Jeremy, and weird posts on my Facebook newsfeed. He definitely thanked me for having me over, the noodles, Ben and Jerry's peanut butter cookie dough ice cream as a chaser, Canada Dry ginger ale, two Pepto Bismol pills just in case he had an upset stomach later, and Gatorade bottle to take home at 11:30. We should do this again = all he has to do is let me know! At least he's more appreciative than SOME people...

I was woken up at 5 AM by a loud piercing noise from across the street. Ugh, construction... no wonder "a loud piercing howl" is a Runaway Dog enemy attack in Earthbound... COFFEE TIME x2! 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!

FINALLY HOME ON APPRECIATE A DRAGON DAY! I got an egg with salt, milk, and a half-sandwich for breakfast today, and said my goodbyes to Dylan / Deb / Declan / Elysse! Deb even packed me a lunch of last night's pasta and stuff even though Dylan drove me home this morning on the way to school and work?! SO NICE! She even included what looks to be an entire Walmart Great Value store brand frozen lasagna for later consumption whenever! WOW! Steph called later so we could discuss my recovery, NO NEED FOR RUSHING THE OTHER EYE SURGERY while driving me home from the hospital, Mom using my sink as a garbage can for her plastic wrap (which isn't even something that can be washed down the drain!), Henry starting to talk now, and Fraser's daycare.


From Julie: A yellow and red dragon with flowers!

I was out of my place at 5:20 when Deb called to see if it was a good time to pick me up on the way to grab the kids from wherever they were after school. Sure, why not? We went to Hugh Boyd where Declan was; Dylan had picked Elysse up earlier since he'd felt sick at work at 2 or so. Declan demonstrated some good reading skills when we waited for Deb at Seafair Complex before getting some gas for the car. Yeah, the sushi and tempura is a good place to start. He told me that he would let his wife choose the names for their future kids - solid choice, my friend! I'm sure he'd like to try Subway sometime, too. As soon as we got home, the kids started talking about negotiating iPad time and toy time - nice!

We had very slightly spicy chicken wings, rice, bass fish, and bok choy for dinner after watching SAMURAI RANGERS and MINECRAFT. Declan wanted to show me his musical SAMURAI RANGERS sword, which is fine. Elysse insisted on watching GLITTER FORCE with GLITTER FORCE MAKEOVER on the iPad during dinner. When she asked me about my cellphone, I said that I'd received it from my dad. Her answer: "DID HE DIE?!" HAHAHAHA, how amusingly morbid!

If I can type with 98% spelling and grammar accuracy on my phone like I am doing "right now," so can everyone else who doesn't have legitimate difficulties with the English language. There, I said it... BOOM!


From my ex-friend Jimmy: Laundry today or NAKED tomorrow!




From Julie: Friendship is like pissing your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you can feel its warmth. Thank you for being the piss in my pants!

I realized that I was definitely running low on juice: wait, the last time I bought them was in late April?! Luckily, I stumbled onto a fortuitous sale on one-litre SunRype juices at London Drugs, so I went there at 7:55 on a 401 in the slightly rainy weather with my WHEELED BAG. I got back at 8:35 on a 407 with on-sale SunRype juice x13: peach-mango, apple, raspberry-mango, blackberry-pomegranate, apple-orange-peach x2, strawberry-kiwi x2, Concord Grape x2, and wildberry x2... more than half-off if buying 10 or more! What a consumer whore I am! I also somehow got away with paying only $13.58 for all that juice, despite it being $1.19 for each box (of 13) AND a 5-cent levy on each! Whatever - I'll take it. :D

Also, Massimo Raffanini tried adding me on Facebook - DENIED! Now I'm just talking to Jimmy as usual - woo!


SunRype Ambrosia apple juice!

After COFFEE TIME, Vanessa and baby Cassidy (with her cool pink sunglasses) picked me up for my BIRTHDAY LUNCH at Pho 37 in Ironwood and Steveston. She apologized for yesterday, but it was still fine by me. We talked about her friends, Tamara, chocolate, sugar, weird people, our parents and siblings(-in-law), "adventurous" pork blood / pork hock / Vietnamese ham / beef / basil / bean sprouts in spicy soup, spring rolls, shrimp salad rolls, padding, buying various things at London Drugs (I opted for on-sale Cool Blue Gatorade x6 - but couldn't find the expiry date of March 16, 2019 on the bottle till just now), blenders, She dropped me off early for my appointment with Rachel at The Caring Place. Rachel actually saw me early, which was surprising, but I also got to be home at 3:25 on a 407, so things worked out that way. I think other things (with Jimmy) are pretty final, but I could be wrong. Still, I want the control...


From Julie: Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered... "Who ties your shoelaces for you?"




Pho 37 is an adventure with this menu!




Happy Pho 37 birthday to me!

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME, I left at 2:55 for my dentist appointment with Sean at 3:30. Turns out the extra half hour was to update my X-rays and digital paperless records! I overheard an older guy actually argue with Sean in the waiting room about how he didn't have time to floss or brush his teeth: he wanted to weasel his way out of more frequent appointments, and didn't want to listen to BC dental rules and guidelines. I got on the Canada Line after checking my Royal Bank card balance at Oakridge Mall, but the guy in a wheelchair posed a problem for me when he wouldn't get out at Lansdowne Station, so I walked from there to London Drugs. (the guy with the bike was bad enough at Brighouse AND Oakridge Station on my way to the appointment...)

I checked out London Drugs again since both Sean and the hygienist mentioned Vaseline for my dry lips. Luckily, it was on sale, as were the replacement thin Secret bamboo socks which I was going to buy after payday. (I noticed a hole in a pair yesterday) The sales would not extend until payday, so I bought a 50g tube of Vaseline original petroleum jelly / 600mL of Vaseline intensive care lotion in a yellow bottle (which contains micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly) / a pair of replacement thin Secret bamboo socks. When I got home at 5:45 on a 407, I prepared blog entries and novel reading for COMPUTERLESS DOOM this weekend. INTO THE WILDERNESS (Sara Donati), FALL OF GIANTS (Ken Follett), HAWAII (James Michener), and LONDON (Edward Rutherfurd) are my choices!


Vaseline original petroleum jelly!




Vaseline intensive care lotion - Yellow!

After COFFEE TIME, I left for FYI Doctors at 2:10 in the rain. The 407 bus had to load a wheelchair, which didn't help! As for my appointments and tests, it took TWO HOURS for the testing and looking at the glasses! Summary of eye exam: "Try to look elsewhere while we put this bright light RIGHT in front of your face!" Later, I went to London Drugs to buy letter and number stickers for me and Fraser / on-sale Jack Link's Peppered Beef Jerky for Jerky Day / on-sale Bucha kombucha tea (Blood Orange and Guava Mango) before going home at 5:05 on another 407. Also, Josephine Uy - who looks worse and more bent over than the last time I saw her - recognized me at London Drugs.


Bucha kombucha tea: Blood Orange, Grapefruit Sage, Guava Mango, and Raspberry Pomegranate!

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME, I went out to Mt. Pleasant Park at 3 (just missing a Canada Line train AND a 3 bus at Marine Drive!) with my own mat and silverware (UGH!) for Ayler's sixth birthday party. My knife did end up saving the day when it came to the homemade chocolate ganache mousse birthday cake, though! I was the only one who brought a knife, apparently. Ayler and Hiero were at the playground when I finally got to the park, so I left Harmony to watch my things along with hers so I could see what was up with them. They were flinging sand with shovels and "digging a hole to China." Later, Ayler and I were discussing our clothing choices, and he said he lived in Vancouver instead of Richmond, so he could know to wear a T-shirt instead of a long-sleeved shirt. Okay, then!

They had fun with the see-saw until it was food time. Ayler had a very specific order when it came to who should get birthday cake, but it definitely made sense that he should get the first slice! Everett and Evander were running around with them, while baby Naomi (whom I met for the first time) was just shy to me most of the time. Of course I said hi to Uncle Joe, Auntie Wing Yee, Brittney, Myles, Holly, and Peter. We had strawberries, lemonade, Clamato, huge DON'T ARGUE pizza slices, homemade chocolate cookies, and homemade chocolate ganache mousse cake. Salsa was also on offer, but what would I have had it with? Dad told me to say thanks to Harmony's parents for giving me a ride to Oakridge Station - DUH! I got home at 8:05 on a 401, and had to wash the dishes right away before I got distracted.

After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got NEW spicy shrimp (EAT THE TAILS!), hot and spicy pork stomach (they should discount it if it expires tomorrow!), Wu-Ham duck necks, on-sale Clorox wipes x2, on-sale Oasis juice x4, $1 Sidekicks x14 (Garlic Butter with Lemon / Tomato Alfredo / Honey Garlic Noodles / Creamy Chicken Fusilli / Teriyaki Noodles / White Cheddar and Broccoli / Chicken pasta / Country Mushroom rice / Mexican Rice / White Cheddar with Queso rice / Homestyle Cheddar / Three Cheese pasta / Chicken Fried Rice), on-sale Healthy Choice microwaveable Power Bowls (Korean-Inspired Beef / Chicken Sausage and Barley / Adobo Chicken / Cuban-Inspired Pork), on-sale JOY dumplings x4 (Lamb and Onion / Pork and Chive / Pork and Tri-Treasure / Pork and Vegetable... saves me a trip to Big Crazy for the same price!), on-sale $1 store brand canned mixed beans x10, on-sale Olympic yogurt x2 (strawberry Krema / black cherry Krema), and on-sale Western Family blueberry-pomegranate Greek yogurt.

Also got on-sale Imperial margarine, on-sale Premium Gomtang beef noodles x2, on-sale Bul Jjampong Korean noodles x2, an on-sale KitKat Espresso Biscuit and Ganache bar, on-sale store brand Parmesan cheese, on-sale Authentica World Cuisine pasta sauce x2 (Arrabiata / Puttanesca), on-sale Catelli seashell pasta, on-sale store brand CLR, on-sale Del Monte lychee juice, Crave microwaveable meals x2 (Pulled Pork and Spicy Sweet Potatoes / Lasagna Alfredo with Bacon and Sausage), store brand mango lemonade, store brand raspberry lemonade, and a free apple from Barry!

After (MORE) COFFEE TIME, I left at 3:40 to make it to Jon's by 4:30. Thanks to a lucky red traffic light at Richmond Centre (and a lot of running across the street and into the station - untied shoelaces be dammed) and bus bunching at Langara, I was able to make it to the house on time! I decided to go from the back alley this time, and am JUST tall enough to be able to see into the back window (for the engagement photos) to check whether I am tapping on the right window (easier to hear than the doorbell - as was proved later by Jeff trying to get in) before I look like a crazy lady. Struggles of being short! Ayler opened the door for me again, and Hiero said that maybe I had been a bad person. Jon was curious whether Mom and Dad had told him about bad people, to put that into his brain and mouth! Wasn't me, that's for sure - I was just joking about it AFTER he said that! Then I asked him whether Steph had mailed him the baby card for Henry (nope), and whether Harmony had decided on a date for the family Xmas dinner - New Year's is fine by me. The kids just played at "making igloos" with the science kit while I put some spare copy paper from my place on the table. You can't say no to that, although I wouldn't be surprised if they did. Not like I'm going to do it every week or even every month! I also got A LOT of enjoyment out of reading EVERYONE POOPS by Taro Gomi, which Jon deliberately borrowed from the library. Hiero enjoyed pointing out the animal poo, hahahaha. (then I read THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE and PINOCCHIO to him when he was upset later)

We had a dinner of chili, miso soup, and rice before I did some of the dishes to help out. Hiero complained that Jeff's violin was too loud, and covered his ears to protect himself. Jon had to talk to him about that. I can understand that the frequency in such close quarters would be too much, but compared to the Shark Club and other loud bars, it was actually not bad for me! Later, Ayler and Hiero fought over a piece of paper when there were plenty around on the table. Hiero went for his brother's eyes while Ayler wanted to hit him with his foot before going for a pincer attack with his legs. At least there's some sort of strategy, although I told Ayler that hitting his brother was NOT a choice out of either drawing or reading stories with me. Then he asked why baby Henry was the only person allowed to touch my hat - because Henry cannot pull off my hat from my head yet! He then counted the numbers on the calendar squares. I left before 7 (almost following Jeff out the door), and it was nice when Hiero told me to be careful. Thank goodness Langara College has plenty of lights! I got home at 7:40 on a 407, deciding that it wasn't worth it to go to the post office if the bus was going to come in two minutes. The Canucks played Winnipeg at 5 today, and lost 5-1... OUCH!

THIS ENTRY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NON-ALIGNED TAGS.





"You Are a Serial Killer"




Of course, you don't have a true killer instinct. But you are fascinated by the dark side of life.
You disturb people with your knowledge of abnormal psychology. And you love freaking yourself out, too!

You are a pretty normal person, but you let another side of your personality out for Halloween.
If there's only one night that you can be creepy, then you're going to go all out.










"You Are Connie"




You are an incredibly sweet and compassionate person. You give everyone the benefit of the doubt.
At times, you can fall prey to unscrupulous folks, but that's okay. You're pretty good at getting out of a jam.

You are optimistic and enthusiastic. People love to invite you along to everything and anything.
You have a good heart, and that's evident to everyone around you. There's a reason why you are so beloved!













"Your Taste for Novelty is Low"




When it comes to life, you're happiest when things are low stress and low risk. You enjoy a good deal of predictability.
You may not enjoy novelty, but that doesn't mean your days are boring. Instead, you prefer to dig deep into what you love.

You aren't one to change a good thing, and compared to most people, you live a very stable and relaxing life.
While too much novelty doesn't serve anyone, a little novelty may do you good. It keeps you young and fresh!

I noticed that Eric Ho had tried calling me yesterday when I was out, so I called him back at 11:50 AM. He answered the phone, and said that he just wanted to let me know - AFTER THE FACT! - that he'd tried sending me an email on Saturday to say that he couldn't make it, and had noticed that I'd called him at 6:40 that evening. Ah yes, his email problems had cropped up again! He wanted to get together this Saturday for the Calgary game at 7 instead, so he'll call me after he gets off work that day. Sure, why not? That sounds good!


From Not Always Romantic on September 2, 2016: Why would you ever text your EX in a GUSHY manner?!

"You Are a Maximizer"




When it comes to everything in life, you're always looking for the best. And you don't mind if it takes a while to find it.
You look at every option before making a decision. You don't like to be rushed, and you often regret your choices if you are.

You're the type of person who checks out every item on the menu. You don't want to miss out on any gems!
People may be annoyed with how long you take to make a decision, but they will agree that your taste is extraordinary.






Good, because the other result (Satisficer) is definitely not a real word!





From Julie: Kanye West! Kanye East!

glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)



"Your Wine is Cabernet"




You are a resilient and successful person. You have a lot of willpower, and you are more resistant to stress than most people.
You truly appreciate the finer things in life. You are always on a hunt for the best; second place is a disappointment.

You have a strong sense of self, but it's not off-putting. You are well-mannered and can engage anyone.
You could have been very successful taking the traditional route in life, but instead, you've chosen to forge your own path.

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!
glowing_dragon: (OMFG Yay!)
Since I got up at 8 AM, it was COFFEE TIME! I later showered and did laundry.





"You Should Wear Brown Sunglasses"




You are very down to earth, and your fashion choices are very classic. You don't mind paying more for quality pieces.
You are smart and savvy. You wear sunglasses not only to complete your look, but also to protect your eyes.

You always know how to dress for the occasion. Fashion for you is more like camouflage - you want people to focus on your other qualities.
You pick clothes that are comfortable and a perfect fit. You may look dressed up, but you're as comfy as can be!

"You Are the Judicial Branch"




You have a well-developed sense of right and wrong, but you are always open to changing your mind about the details.
You have a very rational mind. You never judge until you learn all of the facts and context for something.

You are good at seeing issues in full. You can hold a lot of details in your head at once, and you're able to organize chaos.
You aren't an overly emotional person, and you can see when people are arguing from emotion. You can step back and assess without passion.







From Ben and Tumblr: Mail and email ten years ago in 2001 vs. mail and email now in 2011, when this was created.




From Reddit: Grim Vermeiren is from Flanders or Belgium?!

glowing_dragon: (French Toast)
Now that the HTML posting option on Blogthings finally works again (for now?), I can post all the drafts I've saved!





"You Are Shakshuka"




You love comfort and feeling cozy, but you are also open to new experiences. You crave warmth of all sorts.
You are a bit of an oddball, and you wouldn't have it any other way. You are a person of substance - not just of quirks.

You are a skilled nurturer, both of others and of yourself. You believe that taking care of people is the ultimate goal.
You are a passionate person, and you try to shy away from anything that's a little too average. You make the bold choice when you can.










"You Are Pretty Adaptable"




You know when it's time to be flexible, but you also know when to stand your ground. You assess every situation as it comes.
You've got a lot that's working for you in your life. You're willing to improve, but you're not going to throw it away for the latest thing.

People may say that you should be more adaptable, but it's likely that they just want you to adapt to their ways!
Above all, you tend to be a realist who is living in the present. You know a good opportunity when you see one, but you also can sense when something is a waste of time.







From Julie: I don't really have a plan, most days. Just caffeine and weirdness, my friend. Caffeine and weirdness. THIS IS TOTALLY ME!
