"You Are Cherry"




You are a tough cookie, and you don't let anyone cross you. You are very determined and talented.
Sometimes it takes a while for your hard work to pay off, and that can be frustrating. Eventually, you get the success you deserve.

You are an obvious leader. People tend to immediately put you in charge, and sometimes you are too obliging when it comes to helping out.
You are a stickler for the rules and doing things the right way. You run a tight ship, and people respect you for it.

From Pete: "Your retardation is disadvantageous. I propound you all vamoose with great importunity." "Oh, crap! It's a Thesaurus!"

These were cobbled together from two separate Youtube videos, as my MOTHER 3 game is saved already in Chapter 8 at the point of no return in New Pork City, so I can't go back to Argilla Pass in Chapter 7 to fight Negative Man again.


You encountered Negative Man!

I showered and did laundry today, a day earlier than I might have! However, I had to wipe a very watery bathroom floor with a mop and multiple (paper) towels, then had to do TWO loads of laundry on the THIRD floor, where one of the dryers was out of order! What stressful stramash! AIYA! I finally finished all the laundry just now at 7:30!

From Reddit and Robin Grille's HEART TO HEART PARENTING: Time and time again, children are heavily reprimanded for committing the offense of crying or being angry. Let's get this straight: emotions are not bad behavior. Emotions don't hurt anyone. Suppressing children's emotions on the other hand, DOES cause them harm. Over time, if done repeatedly, it unbalances their brain chemistry. It stresses their immune and digestive systems, and it undermines their ability to relate to others.

The headline is: "A little something that reminds me of how narcissists begin fucking their kids up early on."




From Lucas and Discord: The path to success is never take alone.

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 had to go out in the torrential rain (just managing to get a 401 AND a Waterfront train) for my THIRD family function (Mother's Day / Mom's birthday) in a calendar week: WAY TOO MUCH FRIGGIN' FAMILY TIME! So of course I had to have coffee at 3:15 before going out at 4:30 to London Drugs to buy bulk pads, on-sale iron pills (which are BEHIND the pharmacy counter - of course I told the pharmacist that my doctor told me to take them...), on-sale Salsitas chips x2 (I left a bag for Jon and the family to try), zinc / Vitamin C / echinacea tablets, and 200 index cards. We had good meatloaf from Park Royal (no filler ingredients!), potato salad with smoked salmon, strawberries, orange peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, actual mango pudding, homemade pizza, and corn soup for yet another family dinner. At least I got home at 7:50 on a 401!

Ayler wanted to boss me around: "You have to stay longer!" Hiero wanted me to read to him, of course. Ayler kept asking if he could have the chips, Hiero cried because he fell down (it's FINE for him to cry, Dad...), Ayler said that I took my hat off to go to bed (yup), and Hiero wanted me to play with the toy trains. It was okay, but I'm glad that the lards are going to Japan and Hong Kong on the 22nd to stay with Great-Aunt! No, I'm not going to church this Sunday AT ALL! Apparently, Ayler had called me at 4:30 to make sure I was going to his place - I was out already! Jon says that the Jacob's Well fundraiser event is the 26th, but I already have plans with Chrystal. Hopefully, they aren't without a place to do their thing!


Floppy disks are like Jesus. They died to become the icon of saving.

Apparently, there was a lunch at the lards' place today, so it was COFFEE TIME before I left at 10 to do some quick shopping at London Drugs: a new coffee mug, new Glacier Speed Stick deodorant to replace my Speed Stick with Irish Spring deodorant from 7 July 2015, new store brand lemon dish detergent, and a new $5 book about 100 animals for Fraser. Luckily, Steph could pick me up from King Edward station! Lisa was at least a little bit late, but that was okay: she said that Steph's ceremony yesterday was moderately boring, but that was okay. We had congee, macaroni and ham, plus Chinese doughnuts for lunch while talking about Auntie Eva / Auntie Paula / Harmony / Ayler / Hiero / Jon and transit / Stanley / Ben and Erin / Daniel and Michelle / their seeing Melia on Wednesday ("we should have invited your sister!"), Darren C. getting married, childhood photos, the old childhood stove and tiny chairs, booking Mom and Dad's flights online, a small dinosaur, Anita T. getting married, Fraser's naptime, nursing, Uncle Percy almost being 100, Auntie Eileen / Auntie Evie, Uncle Eric, and Fraser crying a lot. He seemed to like the book and held my hand when we were going to the elevator (where I lifted him up to reach the CALL CAR button so he could make it light up), at least! (and said "A-ma" a few times) I got home at 4:25 on a 407, which is good. It seems like Mom and Dad are going to Hong Kong and Japan soon, so GOOD FOR MORE ME TIME. Maybe I'll even make it to church, hahaha.

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: a Dignity funeral home mint, a small knitted black-and-white scarf, a small knitted black-and-white toque, a five-pack of Indomie Mi Goreng stir-fried instant noodles which expires on June 5, two Christmas Mix packs of Coconut / Red Apple / Very Cherry / Green Apple Jelly Belly jellybeans, and a five-pack of Wujiang brand preserved vegetables.

The Cold Never Bothered Them, Anyway


I knew she blocked me and others when I couldn't see these comments anymore, so I simply logged into my XENIA account to grab these screenshots. This is what also finally inspired me to make a Facebook album for Internet idiots. :D


Dani, just put on a fucking jacket. If you predict that your reaction is over the top, guess what? It most likely IS!




Who the hell has an anxiety attack over people making them wear a jacket?!




I agree 100% with Jamie here. Don't make it about YOU!

Sherry Norris wanted to add me to Facebook from the Puckheads - okay, then! Experienced the "whoosh-whoosh" in my ears again, too! Talked to Vanessa briefly on MSN when she asked about something... yeah, that's still going on. I was going to go out for a short while to visit Grandma and feed her some dinner... I unexpectedly saw my parents there, so they wanted to take me out for dinner AFTER we helped Harmony with the baby. At least I did feed Grandma some congee and her actual dinner of meat / veggies / mashed potatoes, and she thanked me for it mid-feed! She wanted to feed herself some dessert, so I let her do that while keeping an eye on her.

Of course, she asked me whether I wanted some food! As usual, I said no. Mom gave me some shoes and a bunch of mostly-old snacks from Grandma's room (Bugles / Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa medicine with an expiry date of 2002?! / shredded pork / cream wafers / shrimp crackers / Chinese egg rolls / strawberry jam) before we left to see the baby. She also let me invite Chinese Eric to Thanksgiving Dinner - I didn't tell her that I already had invited him during Monday's marathon phone call - and wondered if he'd like to help with Grandma, hahaha! I threw most of the stuff out except the Bugles, which were still good / non-aired out. Later, I got to hold the baby (who smiled and grabbed my finger) for a while before he got fussy - he wanted to look out the window, of course. He also apparently enjoyed bathtime, and HATED being taken out of the water since he cried A LOT! It was cold even inside, for sure.

Harmony says they got back from Portland today, and got really good at eating really fast since the baby had meltdowns every time they wanted to have dinner! The parents and I went to a Vietnamese place to have dinner - it used to be Sun Wong Kee, and I remember it well. After pork / chicken / lamb / shrimp / noodles, we went to see if Mom could find Neo-Citran at London Drugs since she was sick; luckily, she could! (Nicole couldn't last night!) I finally got home at 8:35 or so, to a rather perfidious email from Randal about how my tagging him resulted in "trivial" emails, and how it wouldn't matter if I unfriended him. FINE THEN, I'LL GRANT YOUR WISH! NO MORE HEALING FOR YOU! If you want to be unfriended that badly because you can't stand the emails you get when I tag you in pictures and other people comment on them, FINE! I will grant you your wish, you perfidious fucking asshole. At least others were nicer about it!

Humans over the age of 35 lose about 7000 brain cells each day. (that explains my ditziness!)

Dammit, I should have used a billion Strength Seeds before fighting Dogma and Zozogel in DRAGON QUEST VI - too late now unless I restart (so close to the end!) OR somehow figure out how to use ZST files! (I swear I knew this before when I was playing CHRONO TRIGGER last year...) Never mind, then. Doesn't really matter!

Mom and Dad were LATE picking me up this morning, and I was surprised that Mom was driving. Apparently, Dad was sick and under the influence of Neo-Citran which he didn't want to take. HA HA! We discussed Havarti's growth, dropping Jon off at Tom Lee, clothing, Nerds, chocolate, and other things which I didn't really pay attention to. Went to see Grandma briefly, and I gave her half a mini-banana... the other half looked brown, so I threw that out. I ate another mini-banana, and in the time it took for me to throw the peel in the trash, she'd finished her apple juice! Grandma also recognized me, and had a rounder face than usual... apparently, this is a medical side effect. She said that Alan had visited her earlier, which is good. Maybe she has a lot of repetition! At least she fed herself some soup.

We were off to Trinity church on 49th a bit early, but at least it was close by! Congratulated Myles in person, saw Peter and Holly, noticed Harmony with a crying Ayler (she had to bounce him all the time - maybe she missed the ceremony!), and saw Steph talking to her! Also said hi to Dorcas, who keeps forgetting our family connection to Myles, hahaha. We wondered which wedding photo category we'd fit into: probably #8, which was the groom's extended family. The ceremony was pretty traditional, right down to the vows. Brittney and her sister look REALLY alike!

Saw a bunch of people whom I haven't seen since Harmony's bridal shower and wedding back in 2009, like Peter's parents! Dropped the ugfart off at Tom Lee while discussing Thanksgiving, teaching, making money, FAT DRAGON, Portland, Pho Thai Son and the supermarket next to it BURNING DOWN (Jeremy probably saw the remains this morning!), and more. At least I got to go home after Mom unsuccessfully looked for parking at the insanely busy Yaohan Centre! I didn't want to go for smoked chicken at their house, since I'm having noodles and downtime here!
