Of all the people, Uncle Joe added me to Facebook - HAHAHA! The Canucks played the Flames at 7 tonight, and lost 3-1.


From Julie: Maddelyne?! If I have to write it down to make sure that I spelled it correctly, it’s definitely BAD SPELLING!




Bad and confusing names! )

SHOPPING RUNDOWN!

H and M: DRAGON HOODIE on clearance ($15 off) from $39.99 to $24.99! :D

London Drugs near my house: Red MARTEX bath towel, medium blue MARTEX bath towel, NEW on-sale Strawberries and Cream Lindt chocolate truffles, NEW limited-edition on-sale Blueberries and Cream Lindt truffles, NEW on-sale Milk and White Spring Edition Lindt truffles, on-sale Colgate Optic White toothpaste, and Colgate KnockOut MaxFresh toothpaste in Mint Fusion.

Broadway London Drugs: Fart-O-Matic birthday card for Jon for 2020, brown MARTEX bath towel, on-sale Godiva dark chocolate Easter bunny, and an on-sale Kit Kats Senses Easter bunny.

Shoppers Drug Mart: On-sale Philadelphia chip dip (dill pickle!), and on-sale President's Choice bite-size round tortilla chips! Gotta have it for Chips and Dip Day today and tomorrow!


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!

I called Dr. Wise's office at 11:15 because I'd run out of the Prolensa and Simbrinza eyedrops, and I'm starting to really feel a difference. I had to rest today because my eyes felt really weird like they did right after surgery. Luckily, I could pick them up this afternoon (being a Friday) before they closed at 4. I got there at 2:10 or so, and even got them to open ALL the ridiculously tiny eyedrops bottles x4 for me! PHEW!

On my way home, I just missed a Brighouse train from Yaletown-Roundhouse (where I FINALLY found the elevator to bypass the stairs), so I took a Waterfront train to stay on there so I could go to Broadway Station. I went to No Frills where I was confused by the self-checkout machine, which is nothing new. At least I got help! Bought three pounds of Parkay margarine (which I haven't bought since April 25, 2018?!) and President's Choice Kettle-Cooked Jalapeno chips. I stopped by the pharmacy next door after getting off a 401 at 3:40, and also refilled my birth control pills prescription. Everything is done - YAY!

Then Eric Ho FINALLY emailed me back to say that he's glad my eye surgery and recovery are going well, and we can get together around February 26 or a little later. Does he not know what an expiry date or deadline for the Boston Pizza Online offer is?! I want my free Bandera Pizza Bread, dammit! I'll just splurge and order delivery tonight since I somehow have more extra money in my bank account... I don't trust him to not come over before the offer expires. I eventually settled on a medium BBQ chicken pizza (which I haven't had since September 2016), a medium Meateor pizza for 50% off (which I haven't had since the last time I had pizza in August 2018 for Chinese Eric's birthday), and my free Bandera Pizza Bread with dips and cheese. There goes $57!

Here's a News 1130 poll from Ed Woo as of November 22, 2011. (old since it is 2019 now, I know) Should Canadians have the right to be married to more than one person at a time? 58% say YES, while 42% say NO. WHAT IN THE EVERLOVING HELL?!




From Julie M. and JUDGE JUDY: Buffie Deibler?!

COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played the Rangers at 4 today, and lost 2-1. UGH!


Salsa stops by Thomas' Bazaar while the Happy Box delivery is on in MOTHER 3. "This bread is for the people working here. They eat it whenever they're feeling hungry." On the table: Antidote, Ancient Banana, Edible Mushroom.




Salsa stops by Mayor Pusher's house while the Happy Box delivery is on in MOTHER 3, and goes upstairs. Sebastian the butler says (as usual), "Whew. So busy, so busy."

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
Today is Bad Poetry Day! Eric M. called me at 12:40 to see if I wanted a ride to Boston Pizza for Chinese Eric's birthday hangout: a 1 PM BC Lions game against the Toronto Argonauts! Sure, sounded good to me, especially since I'd been going to leave in five minutes anyway! Of course I brought Chinese Eric's birthday card and on-sale Ritter Sport Dark Chocolate with Peppermint and on-sale Ritter Sport Fine Extra Dark Chocolate, which I gave to him right away! I also figured out that my own birthday dinner would probably be at Kisamos Greek Taverna in Steveston on Sunday, September 23rd. When white Eric and I got there, he checked his texts to see that Chinese Eric was already there. The difference between us and my parents: We don't say anything about Chinese Eric waiting for us at a table already, with his back turned to the door!

We discussed CASTLEVANIA, BATMAN, MARIO movies, Wally Buono / Alzheimers vs. Parkinson's, Travis Lulay, some player named Jonathan, my new glasses, catching up on Facebook, the Canucks, pre-season news, new third jerseys for the Canes / Islanders / Flyers, my new computer, Chinese Eric's helping Jon to move a bit of stuff the other day since he actually took work off for his birthday for the first time in four years. Also discussed "interesting" stories of white Eric's work (that wouldn't be a good thing when it comes to fire alarms and stuff!), the Art Gallery, eating calamari / salt and pepper chicken wings / a large Meateor pizza for the price of a Medium (Chinese Eric took the leftover pizza slices home by default), white Eric paying for everything with his credit card (but I gave him $20 for my portion, which he was fine with), replays, touchdowns, and field goals. When Eric drove me home at 4:15 after the Lions lost, I asked if he could figure out the printer while he was here. Yes, the parking pass / parking permit system is annoying! He got things working, tested things out, and left at 4:50 after I thanked him. No chocolate needed this time! Maybe I'll see him again before my birthday dinner, but who knows? The hot water still isn't back on - THE COLD WATER IS SO FREEZING!

COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played St. Louis at 5 today, and lost 4-1.


From Someecards: Creepy Easter Bunny 35!




From Julie: Rysheka?!

glowing_dragon: (French Toast)
SHOWER TIME! I heard a trap snap shut last night, so called Barry at 8:35 AM this morning to let him know. I saw that it was a big mouse and had flipped the trap upside down, killing itself in the process. He came by at 9:10 AM to remove the dead mouse and set up a new trap with peanut butter, finding a defective one in the process.


From Someecards: Creepy Easter Bunny 34!




From Julie M. and Wish: Deer Attendant toilet brush and holder!

glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
COFFEE TIME! Barry came by at 11:30 to help me set up some mousetraps with peanut butter, stuff steel wool in that bathroom hole, and said to remind him to bring a flashlight sometime next week. The Canucks played the Blackhawks at 5:30 today, and FINALLY won a game! 5-2!


From Someecards: Creepy Easter Bunny 33!




From Julie: A black girl named Qua?! It apparently rhymes with SWAY, and is not said KWA.




From Julie: Armonie?! What was wrong with even Harmonie?!

glowing_dragon: (Consumer Whore)
After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 12:05 and we went banking and to Price Smart. He actually got Hester's husband Ni on the phone, too! I got on-sale Silk almond milk, duck gizzard livers so I can horrify Mike later, $1 on-sale Mott's Clamato Verde x3, limited-edition Olympic grilled pineapple Greek yogurt, on-sale GOOD TASTE dumplings x5 (Beef and Vegetable, Cabbage and Chicken, Cabbage and Pork, Pork and Chive, Pork and Celery), the ONLY non-sticky jar of preserved vegetables on the shelf, Philadelphia Cream Cheese jalapeno dip, and on-sale Tostitos Scoops chips.

Also purchased on-sale steel wool, Vileda sponges, NEW on-sale Smartfood sour cream and onion popcorn, on-sale Uncle Ben's Bistro rice x3, Olympic honey yogurt, two Marie Callender microwave meals (Three-Meat Marinara / Creamy Chicken Alfredo), on-sale Cottonelle toilet paper, Natural Clean bleach, on-sale Oasis juice x4, straw mushrooms x5, mushroom soup x2, (Koka chicken / Paldo Gomtang beef) noodles, and on-sale Kozy Shack tapioca pudding. After I got home at 1:40, I paid my Shaw bill online at home. Then I went to London Drugs at 5:55 on a 407 to mail Julie's stuff to her as long as it's still payday. I also bought store brand multivitamins, 24 mousetraps (clearing out the store's inventory), on-sale Old Dutch Gourmet Pulled Pork Wrap / Sour Cream and Green Onion and Bacon chips, and two clear Sterilite storage boxes! Got home at 6:35 to eat some dinner.


From Someecards: Creepy Easter Bunny 32!

glowing_dragon: (OMFG Yay!)
At 6:50, I took a 407 to get to the liquor store so I could pick out a Halloween-themed beer. I got Weeping Reaper blood orange strong ale from the Dead Frog Brewery, which later turned out to be TOO TALL FOR MY FRIDGE! Then I hit up Price Smart for some Western Family store brand LIMITED EDITION pumpkin pie ice cream before going to London Drugs for a humorous Hanukkah card for Lena since they had one, Frosty the Snowman Advent calendars x9 since those were also at the store (me / Eric H. / Chrystal / Jon / Harmony / Ayler / Hiero / Steph / Lisa), and on-sale Cottonelle toilet paper since today was the last day of the sale. I got home at 8:15 on a 407, which isn't bad at all.

The card: "This Year's Least Popular Hanukkah Toys! Mr. Potato Latke Head, Meshugeneh Patty, Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Rabbis, My Little Bubbie!"


Cemen dip?!




Western Family limited-edition pumpkin pie ice cream: Made with real pumpkin puree, praline pecans, and a hint of spice. A new seasonal favorite!

"You Are a Heath Blizzard"




You are a unique person who does your own thing in life. You are always inspired and thinking up new plans.
You can be a bit of a geek, and you wouldn't have it any other way. You like delving deep into a subject.

You tend to have some unusual preferences, but it's only because you take in so much of the world. You sample as much as you can.
You crave the comfort of the things and people you like best. However, you are always open to trying something new for a change.




glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)
Jon sent me a Facebook message at 9:40 about possibly helping with the kids on Monday afternoon, and mentioned that he'd let Harmony arrange Wednesday with me. Sure, why not? That reminded me to call Barry AGAIN at 11:45 to see if I could change our appointment time since that's also on Wednesday. This time, I left a message! He called me back shortly after, saying that he'd been going to call me because he also wanted to change the appointment time since he'll be in Vancouver for longer than he thought. YAY FOR GOOD TIMING! Thursday afternoon at 12:30 works for me!

She also claims to be an introvert (but uses it in the "social anxiety" way), claims to be part of the LGBT spectrum (yet is married to a man), and always repeats people's jokes back to them when she isn't commenting 20 times on one story alone...




From Not Always Working: Kristen Parlee? Parlee as in "parley" spelled correctly, as in TALKING?!

I started out my morning by trying - and failing - to kill a silverfish that was CRAWLING ON MY COMPUTER DESK AND ON ME! Luckily, I wasn't wearing shorts! I bleached the desk later on, then promptly got a headache. Jon sent me an FB message to see if I could come tomorrow instead; I said no because I needed to shower and do laundry. At least he thanked me for letting him know! Then I talked to Vanessa about Krista, and to Tommy about music.


From Not Always Hopeless: Reyos Blackwood?! He seems to be a furry, too! ACK!




From Not Always Right: Ryley Paulson?! RILEY is not supposed to be spelled with a Y in place of the I in the name!

From Not Always Learning: Michael Kennedy Vroom?! I remember seeing a little girl named Emily Vroom on a list at the Richmond Presbyterian Church when I was there for PJs, and I thought it was the coolest name ever! Bonus: Cool ice dragon and fire dragon in the cover photo!




From Not Always Learning: Kiryn Silverwing?! She's also an otherkin... ew!

From the Guinness Book of World Records in April 2012: The most expensive hot dog is the Dragon Dog which sells for CAD $100 (US $100.70, GBP £63.56) at DougieDog in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada! The sausage is infused with Louis XIII cognac and topped with Kobe beef, lobster, and a sauce of tomatoes, truffles, and spices. So, who would like to try one of these?

I got up at 8 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT!

After I had COFFEE TIME / BLACK TEA TIME, Barry picked me up at 1 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I bought store brand potato and cheese perogies, on-sale Excel White gum x3, perogies, bananas, NEW on-sale Samjin pretzels x5 (Tomato Ketchup / Spicy Beef / Stir-Fried Seafood / Cheddar Cheese / Wasabi), NEW Oreo Birthday Cake ice cream, NEW Breyer's Mrs. Fields Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream, blood orange Western Family store brand Greek yogurt, NEW on-sale frozen Northern King Tom Yum seafood soup, Campbell's light cream of mushroom soup, an on-sale Dawn dish detergent (New Zealand Springs), Money's sliced mushrooms x2, NEW Old Dutch Mozzarella chips, and NEW Old Dutch Jalapeno Cheddar chips.

NEW frozen Northern King Tom Yum seafood soup: squid, shrimp, octopus, lime, galangal, lemon leaf, chili, lemongrass, MSG, garlic, and baby corn!




Money's sliced mushrooms: sliced, whole, pieces and stems x2!

Since I got up at 7:25 AM, it was COFFEE TIME! Later, I called Seafair Safeway customer service to see if I could return Oakridge Safeway items there instead. Since I could, I made plans to go there to return the Tostitos / Mrs. Renfro's salsa since I can't open it even with the jar opener! Before going out at 12:30, I called Chrystal at work to confirm things for tomorrow since I didn't want to waste a shower later, and we are on! At Seafair, they gave me grief about not specifying the brand and type of salsa since they didn't sell the Ghost Pepper there, so they'd have to throw it out. That's not my problem if I just want to return it - and no, I was not going back to the Oakridge Safeway!

When I got on the 402 back to Brighouse, I was surprised when someone called my name. It turned out that Uncle Peter and Auntie Ying were on that bus, having come from a massage and then doing some shopping later! So of course I talked to them all the way to Brighouse! I browsed Shoppers briefly, then bought Heluva Good dip (French Onion / Dill Pickle) which has a limited shelf life but is WAY EASIER to open, Welch's prune juice (which I could open WITHOUT the jar opener for now), NEW Tasty Bite Thai Lime rice, NEW Tasty Bite Thai Penang Ginger Curry sauce, and a dark blue GOODY toothbrush holder at London Drugs before getting home at 2:40 on a 407 in the rainy weather.


GOODY toothbrush holders!

After COFFEE AND ASPIRIN TIME, I went out at 3:30 for my dentist appointment at 4 with Sean, which went fine even if a few teeth seemed a bit sensitive. They even gave me free fluoride that my insurance didn't cover, plus an Oral-B toothbrush and Crest Pro-Health Advanced toothpaste! Then I got NEW Uncle Ben's Smokey Red Beans and Rice, on-sale Tostitos chips (low-sodium Rounds / regular Rounds / Gold), on-sale Mrs. Renfro's salsa x2 (Ghost Pepper x2), Crest Complete and Colgate toothpaste in tubes x3 (including Max Fresh x2 in Minty Sparkle with Bright Strips / Electric Mint Shockwave with Micro-Cooling Beads, plus Crest Whitening Outlast with Scope!), a Colgate toothbrush, and Tostitos Salsa Con Queso dip at the Oakridge Safeway. After a brief stop at the Oakridge Apple Store, I went home and got there at 6:10 on a 407. YAY FOR CAVITY DEFENSE TECHNOLOGY! Then I talked briefly to Vanessa via Facebook messages about Jason, lying, and smoking.
