Before COFFEE TIME, I called Chrystal to see what time we should meet tonight; 7:30 sounds good to me! I went out early at 5:30 to see if I could get that dragon hoodie at H and M after figuring out all the sidewalk and bus stop closures. They were all in a Medium size, but I figured that I'd make it work somehow. I didn't even care that I couldn't exchange it or get a refund since it was on clearance! $15 off - from $39.99 to $24.99! Then I went to the nearby London Drugs, then to the Broadway / Cambie London Drugs. Figured I'd spend my $75 tax refund while I was out and could do stuff, and I did! Now I have to wait for the April credit to go through, ha ha ha...

As I was reading an ARCHIE book, Chrystal came up to me - she was on time today! I told her that I had a birthday card for her, and not to worry about the rest of the stuff in my bulky reusable bag - that was all for me! We went to Pho Extreme Xe Lua to catch up: her parents going to Dubai pretty soon, Ethan and Mike being sick with the flu, my new Reddit friends, the whole Woob and Twitter screenshots saga, Benjamin being about the same age as Beckett, Beckett screaming as loud as the 80s music inside Como Taperia, and her knowing that I liked spicy stuff. After dinner, I went home instead of joining Brian, Paulo, and others at the American. I did stop by Shoppers Drug Mart when I got to Brighouse so I could get the aforementioned chips and dip. Got home at 9:10 on a 401, no thanks to MORE complicated sidewalk closures! They did make a temporary crosswalk near the intersection at my place, though.


From Sara and BrazilFlair on Tumblr: Here’s my first attempt at synonym rolls. Just like Grammar used to make!




Lots of dips! Lots of chocolates! FOOD TIME! )

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!


Moxie Crimefighter Teller?!




Jermajesty Jackson?!




Apple Martin?!




Pilot Inspektor Lee?!




From Julie: Billion Leonard Roberts?!

COFFEE TIME! Christon emailed us to propose a hockey hangout next Saturday (the 9th) at Jeremy's because Chinese Eric wants to have one. I SEE HOW IT IS! He can sacrifice a night from wedding planning for HIM, but not for my birthday?! HA! I'll have to walk to Brighouse station AGAIN for the second time in four days in a row! UGH! White Eric can't make it because of his own hockey stuff. The Canucks played Vegas at 1 today, and lost 3-0.


From Quotes, Fun, and Sarcasm: Tashneal Blake?! Why didn't her parents just go with Tasha to be more normal?!




From Quotes, Fun, and Sarcasm: Rickeena Holloway?!

I showered today. Got Christon and Alice's wedding invitation today - at least both the wedding and reception are in Richmond, so I can probably get white Eric to give me a ride on August 31! KIRIN AND BLUNDELL CHURCH, AHOY!


From Reddit and r/UnresolvedMysteries: Shy'Kemmia Shy'Rezz Pate, AKA Shy-Shy?! This message board posting was made on February 18, 2007! WHAT AN ANNIVERSARY!




From the r/hockey Discord server: Here's a Doge as a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Jesus Christ... I'm fucking melting!

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
After COFFEE TIME, Eric picked me up for church in the morning. We talked about DARK SOULS, my eye surgery and insurance, how it was somewhat his fault for the sewer updates and construction zone around my place because his company was involved, drivers and turn signals, Elysse thinking my dad was dead because I now have his old phone, and sleeping in last week. We sat together in church service, I returned Deb's Ziploc tub to her / returned Mom's jars to her, and said hi to Frances M. / Sophie / Auntie Cathy / Ayler / Hiero / Andrew L.

I got a lunch and ride offer from Deb if I was fine with going to Canadian Tire beforehand (sure, why not?), and had to chat briefly with Uncle Reuben as he saw me. He asked about Dad and - speak of the devil (which I DID say out loud in church, hahaha) - Dad did pass by in purple choir robes a minute later! Ivan did joke that I should make it three weeks in a row for church attendance next week, but I think I'm good to go for now. Dylan, Deb, Declan, Elysse, and I bumped into Mom in the church elevator, where she thanked them for "looking after" me. *rolleyes* Like I can't do that myself?! Sheesh!

After looking at ALL the games / windshield wiper fluid / shovels / lawn mowers at Canadian Tire (and saying hi to Joe T. who was also there), it was time for a Pho lunch at Basil Garden (where I attempted to pay for my own meal - we talked about Farrah Fawcett / SMALL SACRIFICES and Diane Downs / SALVATION / Extreme's MORE THAN WORDS / whining / iPad time / tendon / brisket / steak / tripe / Pho noodles / rice) and Hiero's glow-in-the-dark bowling party at Grandview Lanes! While I was at the bowling alley, I successfully signed up for Shaw Open wi-fi because I'd written down my stuff at home when I could more easily access it via desktop. I also met a kid named Louie's mom (Hiero's classmate), saw kids named SPARKLE and KALAN in another group, and tried to stay out of the way, but it was pretty cramped.

Ayler asked me whether my body was cold because of the Dairy Queen ice cream cake (not yet), and added that the cake was the yummiest cake that he's ever had - NICE! Said hi to baby Beckett when he was awake, admired the glow-in-the-dark effect, watched Elysse when she looked at the frosted window, and told Hiero that I could read to him the next time I came over because my eye surgery was done for now. He seemed to like that idea, as well as the hot dogs and Lays chips and veggie platter. I got a sane ride home with Deb and Dylan, thank goodness. We talked about tonight's lunar eclipse, Jawbreaker candy, and I SPY before they dropped me off at 4:50. The Canucks played Detroit at 1 today, and won 3-2.


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: Liberté Canada strawberry Greek yogurt x4 which expires on January 22 (so I'll eat it all tomorrow night after it's chilled in the fridge), Excel Hotel Tokyu coffee powder x1, random Chinese green tea x8, Daiwa Royal Hotels green tea x1, Nikko Hotels International Roasted Japanese Tea x2, Nikko Hotels International green tea x2, random Chinese tea x4, Kantafe Creamy Powder x1, Kantafe sugar packet x2, Kantafe Instant Coffee x1, random Chinese roasted tea x1, Ronnefeldt 隆納菲 Lemon Sky flavored fruit infusion tea, Sencha green tea x1, and random Chinese coffee powder x1.

It's Good Friday today! That always makes me think of the time when my siblings and I were joking around about it being Good Friday the 13th, and Dad didn't like it much - OH WELL. :D


My ex-friend Daniel M. sent this to me last year: Good Friday the 13th with Jesus AND Jason Voorhees! GENIUS!

From Julie: Daxten?! I think Hattie is fine, though.

I went to the pharmacy next door to see if I could get my prescription filled, but Adam says I'll have to wait until tomorrow. Not a big deal, really. The Canucks played the Ducks at 7 tonight, and won 4-1.

While the Happy Box delivery is on in MOTHER 3, Salsa talks to Jill, Brenda, and Lisa at the Tazmily Village square. Brenda says, "You stink like a monkey..." WELL, HE IS A MONKEY! :P

From Julie: Jesus says, "Tell them about that one time I fought the dragon!" The pastor says, "That never happened, Jesus." Jesus replies, "Haha, tell them anyway!"




From Krista and Dragons: Dragon teapot!

Eric Ho FINALLY sent me a fucking email ("sorry!") saying that there was some Valentine's Day thing at the art gallery. Not interested - he'll have to make it up to me WELL. The Canucks played Boston at 7 tonight, and won 6-1! Loui Eriksson scored two goals!


From Someecards: Creepy Easter Bunny 5!

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!


Merci chocolates, on sale for the very Asian price of $8.88!

From Rebel Circus and the r/hockey Discord server: I shall take you to bed and have my way with you. I will make you ache, shake, and sweat until you moan and groan. I will make you beg me to stop! When I am finished, you will be weak for days. Sincerely, the flu.

From Gotta Lil Captain In Ya? and Pete: A Whoopee cushion filled with gravy adds a hilarious new dimension to a rather tiresome practical joke.




From Reddit and r/namenerds on December 14, 2017: The Waldrop sextuplets and twins from Alabama, plus an older brother! Saylor Briggs, Bridge Ryder, and Wales Tucker are the older siblings. The sextuplets (3 boys and 3 girls) are Layke Bryars, Blu Wellington, Tag Bricker, Rivers McCall, Rayne McCoy, and Rawlings McClaine. MULTIPLE MULTIPLES!




My newest highest-voted Not Always Right comment on a story entitled FEELING USED: "Jesus Christ. Your manager is a whole bunch of banned words." If you have a problem with my taking the Lord's name in vain, SHUT IT. I'm not dealing with the ridiculous Disqus swear filter that Not Always Right admins keep changing so that even circumventing workarounds might not go through. All those comments are permanently in moderation. "Jesus Christ" gets through, is convenient to use when I'm in a (relative) hurry, and hasn't been banned.... yet.

From Julie: Nobody liked caroling with Yoda! "A merry Christmas we wish you... a merry Christmas we wish you..."




From Eve and Buzzfeed Canada: If the same person holds two consecutive doors for you, is it common courtesy to say "thank you" both times? This is the most Canadian discussion I've ever seen on the Internet.

When I went outside at 3 to throw away the unfinished half-bag of Doritos jalapeno and cheddar chips which expire today anyhow, I recognized Hester's voice, so greeted her and said that I was going to call her about laundry tokens. (tomorrow...) She said that she could drop by and give me some in exchange for the $35 payment. That worked for me! Rob the handyman, Hester, and I then chatted about my nephews, my supposedly losing weight because my face is thinner (Hester always says that for whatever reason), dinners, and her not seeing me for a while. Maybe, but I'm usually around and want to limit my interactions with certain people if at all possible. Paul also let me know on Discord that he got my Christmas card (which he called a letter - with three hearts emoticons), which is very nice to hear! Hester's husband Ni came by at 3:55 with the laundry tokens, so at least that is done before any Christmas break they might take!

WHAT THE FUCK?! I DISCOVERED REDRUM AGAIN! Jesus Christ...

I discovered surprise redrum before going to bed last night - UGH! After COFFEE TIME at 10, I went out at 11 to the Broadway Canada Line Station to meet Auntie Catherine at 11:30-ish. It was definitely time to switch over to Grandma's warm purple Alia winter coat! Auntie Catherine saw me at the station and we hugged hello. I had tea and hand-dragged lamb noodles with four pan-fried dumplings. We talked about my nephews, Youtube, the Bible / her belief in Jesus Christ / original sin / human intelligence vs. God intelligence (like God is automatically more intelligent?) / the Bible / some Christian preacher named David Jeremiah / whether I believed in Jesus Christ (I didn't sign up for that during lunch!), my own personal beliefs, Chung Yan, Chung Ming, Mattias and Marcus being 9 and 7 now (what?!), VCEFC, Pastor Dan still being there, the aging population at church, a speaker on Martin Luther King and the Reformation tonight at the church, Winter Conference as something I could do to remind me of what I grew up with (what?!), Kids Night on Halloween (what would I do there?!), and the Book Warehouse. Despite all that religious stuff, I did thank her for the lunch and said no when she asked whether I wanted anything else.

When I left the Book Warehouse after laughing at a book called YOUR SHITTY FAMILY, I bumped into Auntie Cathy! We talked about her Sunday School kids getting older, her and Uncle Hansel downsizing to live in a condo around 12th and Heather, Frances Chan staying in town now to take care of her mom, Darren Chew's wedding, her trip to Hong Kong next week to spend time with her mom, her getting back in December, my nephews, and her being glad that I was staying warm before she went on with her day because it was getting cold. I finally got home at 1:20 on a 407, and checked my mail: I got another Royal Bank debit card, which replaces the temporary debit card (which I've cut up already) and the card where the chip could not be read! Yay! Then I decided to send Ellen a Facebook message about her mom. I was totally fine with her emailing Frances to ask whether she could give me her email address or contact info, which Frances did allow. I understand and respect that, definitely! Also, I ate my egg salad sandwich for National Sandwich Day today.

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!

Since I was up at 5:30 AM after going to bed at 1:15 AM, I had COFFEE TIME! What the fuck, body? I'm definitely taking melatonin tonight before bed!


WTF church sign from the Kingsley Lake Baptist Church: Easter comes once a year. How often do you?




A Twitch streamer I follow (Highspirits) is doing a United States road trip from Florida to Seattle, and one of his friends lives near a Death Valley Road in what he describes as "the middle of nowhere in West Virginia." I requested a photo, and got one! Using Google after I finally read his Pastebin account of the trip so far, I have figured out that this particular road sign is located in Ridgeley, West Virginia.




From Reddit: It's Easter, and Jesus is getting his nails painted.
