Yesterday, Holly invited me to Steveston Pizza at her place tonight. Nobody was going to have the $850 pizza! ("SEENAY: Medley of tiger prawns, lobster ratatouille, smoked steelhead, Russian Osetra caviar, snowed with Italian white truffles $850") After I showered and had COFFEE TIME, Brian kindly picked me up at the hospital at 7:10 even though the pizza place was way closer to his apartment. We chatted about the expensive pizza (a MOUND of seafood on the order before his?!) and the NHL Draft Pick Lottery Day before getting to Holly's, where I unsuccessfully completed a call to her. She wanted to throw her keys down to us again, but actually answered the door instead once she realized Brian had five pizza boxes.

I said hey to Darryl and Paulo, informing Paulo that the temporary crosswalk was now closed off. He put his head in his hands and said, "I hate it..." Trust me, I understand ANY ranting he has to do on the issue! We all talked about life, Vegas, walking a lot on the LONG Strip blocks, online people, chatrooms, drunkenness, dodgy stuff, seeing family members, work schedules, Holly's new job starting tomorrow, dead people, being a travel agent, working with the general public, and upcoming plans. As usual, I have none. I did almost forget my jacket, oops. Darryl called me by name when we said bye to him outside, which shouldn't really be a surprise. Brian dropped me and Paulo off at about 9:40, which is pretty good. I actually have time to blog without being rushed off to do other things!


Alpha Omega Nickelberry III?!




FIRE PIZZA at Steveston Pizza: Pepperoni, capicolli, roasted pimento peppers, and fresh jalapeños!

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
Brian picked me up at about 9 last night from the hospital's main entrance, but I had to take a gigantic huge detour because the construction had blocked off the sidewalks right by my place AGAIN! (going through the parking lot and then find the sidewalk by the pharmacy and then cross THREE crosswalks to get to the hospital) He had joked that it would be like Little Iraq trying to get to my place, and this was about right. The chill get-together was for Paulo's 27th birthday, so of course I was going to come out and meet him. Things were fine until we tried finding Fremlin, but I eventually called Holly (who doesn't have a buzzer system or an elevator in her apartment building?!) when Brian eventually found it. She said that she was going to throw her keys down to us, probably because she was tired of going up and down the stairs for everyone else!

When Brian finally figured out the front door lock (the one in my building is recalcitrant as well), we went upstairs to Holly's suite. We met Paulo, and said hi to Holly and Darryl. Talked about bartending, gin and tonic, red wine, beers, smoking (always someone's choice), travel (Jordan and Egypt and Australia), the leftover pizza with pepperoni and sausage, online people in the other Discord server, Gastown, awful dates, hyphenated names, feminism, the 407, friends being in abusive relationships, weird names like Jesus Condom, the closed sidewalks around my place, (looking for) work, Long Island Iced Teas, (video) interviews, San Francisco, Montreal, fudge Oreos, and my Korean BBQ Kettle chips. Of course I let Holly keep them! Turns out that Paulo lives two minutes from me, which is always good just in case. I let Brian drop me off at Birchwood instead of Dogwood, but I was still with it enough to figure out where I was since things looked different. Got in at midnight, which is fine. Good times with FREEDOM!


From Dragons: Luck of the Irish dragon!




From Brad Jansen: A flying red dragon!




From Julie M. and Realm of the Witch: If you're going to make me out to be something I'm not, it'd be cool if you'd make me a dragon. Thanks.




From Instagram and Kramer's Discord server: Smartmouth Beer released a Lucky Charms-flavored beer on March 2 for St. Patrick's Day 2019?!

From Julie: Brayla?!




From Julie: A'Voyn?! Reminds me of AVOINE, the French word for OATMEAL!




From Julie: Mike is obviously fine, but CALEA?! Bad spelling of Kaili or Kaylee! How about Armani?!




THREE DRAGO FANGS! By inputting the MOTHER 3 Code cheat 0200429F:AF, you can modify Duster's 16th item to be Flint's Drago Fang. I hacked it into his inventory, and tried "using" it. The game says, "This isn't the time to use that." Hahaha! I wondered if I could just give these three Drago Fangs to the Item Guy in Chapter 4 later on… so I hacked two Drago Fangs into Lucas’s inventory (Code cheat 02004233:AF), AND I COULD! NO MORE ENCUMBRANCES!

I managed to reconstruct the newest Imgur Bad Baby Names album because I'd accidentally deleted it the other day, and also managed to upload all 132 Simpsons mood theme pics and all 132 Homestar Runner mood theme pics to Imgur before redoing the mood themes on both my LJ and Eric Ho's LJ! Thank goodness I'd already saved the pics to my D drive when I first got this computer, because I don't know how long it would have taken if I'd had to save them from Photobucket itself! Then I changed Eric's LJ theme to the Default AIR one because the old one had too-small font for me now, even if I like the concept of white text on a dark background. ACCOMPLISHMENT AHOY!


From Shiv on Discord: Why would you need to COME OUT AS FAT?!

glowing_dragon: (LJ Drama)
Mom called me at 8 to see if I was feeling better and if I was going tomorrow to Pizzeria Barbarella. Not really, and NO! She mentioned her email that she'd sent earlier in the week. Yeah, but that doesn't mean I have to REPLY... sheesh! Also cancelled on Jon, who says Harma is also coughing a lot. Monday - maybe 5 to 6. Should work!


From Reddit: There's a country musician who is actually named Stonewall Jackson?! SWEET!




From Reddit: Engelbert Humperdinck?! This is badass!




From Reddit on May 25, 2017: "I recently learned that using GIRLFRIENDS to refer to platonic friends is offensive." What?! Are people just LOOKING for things to be offended by these days? It may be confusing, but certainly not OFFENSIVE... *rolleyes*

From Reddit: Scott Darling?!




From The Mirror: Stylez G. White plays football?!

From Julie M. and Reddit: Vlad the Impala license plate from California!

glowing_dragon: (LJ Drama)
Chrystal emailed me this morning to say that she'll actually be out of town for the next two weeks and would love to meet up with me after getting back on the 20th, so that still totally works for me even if she understandably can't do the 14th! Vanessa came by from Langley before her Richmond appointments so we could exchange stuff. I gave her a Christmas card / Eric Ho's Jersey Milk chocolate bar / Advent calendar so I could get some of her homemade chocolate peanut Eat More bars since she can't have too much sugar these days. She got here at 12:20, and we spent half an hour chatting because I got back in at 12:50. Talked about Jason, his mom, his cousin, amniotic fluid, karma, Jon and Harmony's current living situation, Ayler, the stigma around girls, Krista thinking that everyone is out to get her / ignoring the signs of abuse from her exes Andrew and Ryan (DON'T WAIT AROUND FOR THEM TO CHANGE EVEN IF THEY WANT TO!), autism, a Steveston mail truck not looking out for her, that Eastern Conference hockey chat, Jimmy and his "must not be fatter than me" dealbreaker, (water) weight, January plans, maternity leave, Richmond drivers, my periods, her NOT making any more Thanksgiving dinners for SOME PEOPLE, and it being cold today. Good to catch up at least!


From Reddit on June 25, 2016: "We've been dating for a long time - FOUR MONTHS!" Oh, 19-year-olds... Sarcasam_Is_King can't even spell "sarcasm" correctly!




From Reddit on March 18, 2016: When people use expressions like "you go, girl" to her, WandMirk probably shouldn't take it so personally. She says she's not a girl even if her body doesn't produce most hormones. It says something that I misread her username as WANDA MIRK. Special snowflake right there! Not because of her body, but because of how she reacts to a normal expression.

glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)
IT'S WORLD TOILET DAY TODAY!


Vanessa wanted to know if she could hang out here in between doctor's appointments on Wednesday, which is fine by me. With the appointments between 1:15 and 2:40, it's definitely pre-hockey, and is more convenient for her than trying to find something else to do at that time!


Shourvoisier Gamble and Jaykia Pitts?!




Sarah G. alerted me to this one from Little Things: JESSAKA Clark is GROWING her family?! That's supposed to be spelled JESSICA! Just say she's EXPANDING her family!

glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
The Canucks played Pittsburgh at 7 last night, and I later found out that they won 4-2. I left at 8:25 in order to get the bus on time to make the trek to the Shark Club, which Sabrina said was right across the street from Stadium-Chinatown Skytrain station. Her idea of "right across the street" must be different than mine because I had to walk a couple of blocks from the station. I couldn't even get into the Shark Club when I finally got there since they were at capacity because of a UFC fight. I saw plenty of people from a BC Lions game and the Canucks game, but not the people I was looking for. I went back in again a while later, and heard my name being called. It was Brad, whom I at least know if not like a lot, so that was a relief anyway. He hadn't seen Kathy or Aaron, but soon got a message saying they'd just got to Stadium. I was fine with following everyone inside when they got there, and of course Eve and John were there already! I could have gone in there beforehand, but didn't want to go against the bouncer's wishes.

Plenty of hugging, some photos, "I love you," and yelling to be heard over everything else! I got a Long Island Iced Tea on Eve's account (ASIAN RED-FACE GENE!), but it later turned out that Brad paid for the entire table anyway. Kathy and Aaron left for some reason, maybe having to do with this (homeless?) guy named Sebastian that was with them. John SPILLED Brad's red wine all over me by accident, so Eve took me to the washroom area and blotched it with cold water. She said to soak it in lukewarm water to get the tannin out when I got home, but I didn't trust that, so did it with cold water instead. Talked about Burnaby, having a phone, addresses, Tammy Milosh the bitch, "you and Brad should date!" (no!), his usage of "cunt," my not leaving CRIMINALS, and a plastic bag for my soaked item. I finally left after midnight, got confused as to where I was going (left and right and up and down were not right in my head), actually went on the Georgia Viaduct, and finally got weird directions from a Hagelin fan, and real directions from the bouncer at the door. Luckily, I got what was probably the last train to Waterfront from Stadium, the last Brighouse train from Waterfront, and the last 401 bus from Brighouse after a cold wait. Thank goodness for winter clothing!

I got home just before the time change at 1:55 AM, soaked my sweater / jersey / pants in the tub, then went to bed soon afterwards. Today, I definitely did my laundry (one load on the second floor - one load on the third floor), and the jersey was fine after washing! Not sure whether it was the water treatment, the white vinegar, or the stain-lifting technology of my laundry detergent - I'm glad, anyway! I can live with 10-ish blotches around the logo, I guess. Talked to CANUCK NATION about this stuff, of course. The lid of the Touch Top garbage can in the bathroom broke off, and I was going to get a new one anyway since it won't fit... so off I go again!


These cheddar jalapeno Cheetos aren't Doritos! YOU HAD ONE JOB!

THIS ENTRY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NON-ALIGNED TAGS.





"He's Keeping You a Secret For Now"




Your guy doesn't seem super psyched to go public with your relationship - at least not totally public.
Maybe he's a private person, or maybe you are just starting to date. It's nothing to worry about yet.

Keep an eye on this guy. Is he as serious about you as you are about him? He may be hiding something... you!
You want to be with someone who's as excited to be with you as you are with him. Even if it means getting a new man.










"You Are a Brown Leaf"




You are a well-grounded and down-to-earth person. You are dependable, in part because you like knowing that you can depend on yourself.
You are quietly confident and know who you are. You don't have to be the most colorful person in the room to be comfortable.

You are approachable and friendly. People naturally trust you. You are as stable and honest as you seem.
You are warm and reassuring. You believe that there is a season for everything, and you accept each day as it comes.











"You Are Quite Wise"




You don't feel different than anyone else, but that's part of your wisdom. You are humble and thoughtful.
You always try to reflect more than react, but sometimes your very human nature gets the better of you.

You try to go with the flow and live in the moment. There is a lot of wisdom to be found in the present.
If there's anything you're trying to improve on, it's getting to know yourself a little better.










"You Are Gillian"




You are a rebel to the core, and if someone calls you on it, it only makes you act out.
You are fun-loving and impulsive. You seek a life of adventure and enjoy being with whoever is Mr. Right Now.

You don't care what others think. You are good to those who matter to you, and your attitude helps liberate them.
You take life as it comes, and you are happy to squeeze the most out of every day. Party at your place!







glowing_dragon: (Default)
I called Chrystal at work at 10:35 AM to remind her about our get-together tonight. After a nap, I called Barry to see if we could set up a food shopping appointment. He said he'd "left a message on the machine," but I haven't used it in years! The appointment is for payday, Oct. 25 - and it's at noon instead of 1 PM, but I can deal with that.





"You Should Date a Guy in His 40s"




You're not just ready for a serious thing... you've been ready for a while now!
You want a relationship that's steady and stable. You'll trade romantic energy for long-term potential.

That's not to say you'll settle for someone boring. You're hoping for a guy who is deep, smart, and accomplished.
You want to be with someone who's all grown up. Even better if he's learned from a few missteps along the way.










"You Are a Gemini"




Communicative
Intellectual
Enthusiastic
Inconsistent
Superficial
Indecisive
Versatile
Anxious
Cunning
Witty




glowing_dragon: (Default)



"You Make Friends Wisely"




Your friendships are gold to you, and something you take seriously. You prefer quality over quantity when it comes to friends.
When you make friends with someone, you hope to be friends for life. You are loyal to your friends, no matter what goes down.

You expect a lot from friendship, and you're not up for being friends with just anyone. You need to build a relationship first.
Your friends are like family to you... sometimes even closer than family. You can't imagine life without them!










"You Should Be Single"




Just to be clear, this doesn't mean you are bad at relationships. Just the opposite!
You are good at it all - friendship, dating, networking... And you have a blast mixing and mingling.

Maybe you're the married type, but these days, being single is seeming a lot more fun to you.
Whether you're technically married or not, your friends, hobbies, and freedoms mean the world to you.










"You Are Insecure About Your Looks"




You don't necessarily think that you're ugly, but you do consider yourself to be average.
And in this looks-driven world, you just don't think average cuts it anymore. You want to stand out.

You may not feel secure about how you look, but you probably look better than you think.
Ask someone you trust what your best feature is. You may be surprised to find out!




glowing_dragon: (LJ Drama)
I showered and did some laundry today, so at least I can feel more human and less like a desiccated corpse!


I got a free sample of Excel Soft Chew peppermint gum in the mail yesterday!




From Reddit on August 16, 2017: "All these RED FLAG questions are so negative!" DUH! I'm very surprised that Sikamixoticelixer thinks that RED FLAGS would be positive...




From Reddit on August 24, 2017: No, Bmoreisapunkrocktown, tampons are NOT heteronormative! They're simply one option to use while you're on your period. That's ALL there is to it!

Proudly Canadian mosaic dragon!




From my ex-friend Lucas's Discord: My sister accidentally killed herself... oops! What juxtaposition!




From Reddit on June 3, 2017: "I said that I was smiling because I was uncomfortable." No, Katydid90, we do not do that. It's not even a fake smile, which I do indeed understand!

glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)
From Reddit on March 7, 2017: No, you should not encourage your BOYFRIEND in HIS using "they / them" pronouns! It's HE and HIM and HIS! I agree with Undoomed on this one. You are NOT that much of a special snowflake! Also, WTF is "eye gaze"? Just say "he looks at me for a long time"! This is definitely an example of semantic satiation!




From Reddit on April 3, 2017: No, you cannot be technically 12 when it's a month until your birthday! That would still make you your then-current age of ELEVEN.

MONTHLY BUBBLE TEA TALLY, SEPTEMBER 2012 (1)

mango @ Copa Café (Saturday, Sept. 8) [free, thanks to Uncle Michael and Aunt Leslie!]


Before I called Chinese Eric tonight, I decided to see if I could get my YM working for Trillian. Apparently, my password was wrong, which is bullshit. I perforce reset it after Googling instructions, and it seems to be working. At least, I'm not disconnected after only half a second. This works, even though I never really use the service for anything these days. You never know what randomness may come forth, though! :P

When I called at 9:15, I got the fax machine screech right after Eric answered. He decided to call me back, which works for both our poor sets of ears! We discussed Grandma, Chinese New Year, the Mid-Autumn Festival tomorrow, the "older brother / sister ... UNCLE / AUNTIE" stages of life, mooncake, engrossing reading on the INTERESTING psychology differences between an only child and one with siblings (Nate would know more!), siblings' / classmates' personalities being different, our weeks, Portland, and the beer allowance. Conversed about YOU CAN'T DO THAT ON TELEVISION (Bart the cook was weirdly creepy, he says!) / green slime ingredients, YTV, SAVED BY THE BELL, SQUARE ONE, Halloween / Trick-or-Treating / things like Kids Night being safer (the Awana crew makes it fun for the kids!), the Copa Café, Scientology, Tom Cruise and finding a new wife, Thanksgiving dinner, weird news, the BC Lions not quite coming back from a 19-1 deficit against the Saskatchewan Roughriders (final score - while talking to me to kill time - was 27-20), dating not being easy, Dylan, BS being a "small group," the evolution of cellphones, and more.

He told me to tell white Eric "thank you for making me look up the word which I was supposed to use last time!" Apparently - and I never noticed this - he was going to say "bashful," but added "-ful" to the end of "brash," thinking it would be okay. I'm sure he's learned his lesson, but I know that adjectives and similar words can confuse him, so it's all good! Of course, I will pass on the message! I complained about everything changing their online interface lately (blogging sites like Blogger!), and he says that he has to guide his mom through Hotmail changes every six months or so! I'm not surprised that it happens, especially since MY mom complains that the Facebook "share" button is gone from her iPhone... I'm more inclined to believe Steph, who says it isn't. We know Mom might be losing it, after all. Eric and I ended this conversation at about 10:40, saying that it was nice to talk to the other - SEE? This is what I needed!
