My morning before 8 AM: Shaw going out for 10 minutes because of the 24/7 construction across the street (noise exemption bylaw) and then Windows decided to update 10 minutes after that....

Boo! I discovered redrum in the shower! Blood on the yellow shower pouf means that this (and the square-shaped soap) must be thrown away! At least it wasn't overnight in bed... but it wasn't supposed to happen yet. UGH!


From Chinkerbelle on Tumblr: Reasons I grab my boobs! Running upstairs, running downstairs, running, stoked on life, scared, walking through my house in the dark, bored, boobs...




From Susan and Heart Touching Fun: Garfield and Pooky! You've been hugged! Pass it on.




From Julie: Alpaca vs. Llama! An alpaca weighs 150 pounds, has soft fleece, listens to human commands, eats grass, is even-tempered, and travels in herds. A llama weighs 400 pounds, has a knife in its fur, listens to Norwegian death metal, eats old corn dogs, is constantly drunk, and will kill you the first chance it gets.

I had COFFEE TIME after a useless morning trip to London Drugs for a specific set of Sharpies, but I did see Roberta while wasting my time. Barry picked me up at 1 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got "free" store brand bottled water x12 thanks to it being on the bottom of the shopping cart, bananas, two $2-off Carlton Cards birthday cards with a coupon, NEW on-sale Earth's Own oat milk, on-sale Earth's Own almond milk, red / blue / black Sharpies x6, on-sale Campbell's soup x5 (New England Clam Chowder x4 and Baked Potato with Bacon), on-sale Olympic Dairy yogurt x2 (Strawberry and French Vanilla), on-sale Knorr Sidekicks x8 (Garlic Butter with Lemon / Creamy Chicken Fusilli x2 / Honey Garlic Noodles / Teriyaki Noodles / White Cheddar with Broccoli / Homestyle Cheddar / Three-Cheese), Stouffer’s Sauté Sensation microwaveable meals x2 (Grilled Chicken Teriyaki / Country Beef Pot Roast), on-sale Uncle Ben's rice x3 (Smokey Beans / Cilantro and Lime / Tomato and Herb), and Kung Tak Lam vegetarian mushroom noodles.

Eric H. (lddude): "Here now for the POST-Christmas hangout with Leslie... it has been a while since I was here. (one year and eleven days) Haha. Hope I can come over more often and enjoy Leslie's company... Happy Holidays! :)"


After COFFEE TIME and SHOWER TIME, Chinese Eric called me at 4 to say he was on his way, so I of course had the keys and the parking pass / parking permit ready! He came over at 5:30 with Stanley Park Noble Pilsner beer from a work party (which he can't have because of his lupus, so he gave the bottle to me) and Safeway store brand Compliments barbecue / Extra Barbecue chips. We talked about the Bassili's Best shepherd's pie, which I actually convinced him to make earlier than 8 PM since it would take 50-60 minutes to cook in the oven! He also had FOUR bottles of water - WOW, SO THIRSTY! I also convinced him to leave the tray for the shepherd's pie while cooking it, even though he was worried about eating the plastic material afterwards. Needless to say, that did NOT happen! At least we found my Alcan tinfoil behind my toaster oven!

Discussed hockey news, Connor McDavid's jersey number corresponding to his birth year of 1997, Dragon Ball bubble tea, Loui Eriksson's six-year contract from Canada Day 2016 to Canada Day 2022, all his Halloween and Christmas candy in a big Ziploc bag, taking the chips (meh at best) home for Auntie and Erica to try, Steph / Lisa / Fraser / Henry, Jon / Harmony / Ayler / Hiero / Beckett, and Christmas stuff. Also talked about Gritty the Flyers mascot, my low-tech blue guestbook, MONSTERS INSIDE ME, the Clintons and Michelle Obama hitting town, water bottles vs. bottled water at work (bottled water is more inconspicuous when slipped into a suit pocket), and Desmond being in Australia according to Nathan. The Canucks played the Oilers at 6 tonight, and won 4-2. Eric left at 8:50 after doing the dishes and watching some GOOD highlights. At least I convinced him to do the dishes, but I should have soaked the dumpling pot before he came over!


5.1% Stanley Park Noble Pilsner beer, thanks to Chinese Eric! We brew our Noble Pilsner with two row Pilsen malt and a distinctive blend of noble hops. This European-style lager has a delicate Pilsner aroma and delivers a soft, crisp taste and refreshing finish. Enjoy!!

Andre Stelter added me to Facebook - hey, he is a Canucks fan, so why not? I finally got back home at 3:35 on a 407 (going out at 2:10 on a 401) after buying two blue replacement $20 Snapware 35.2L storage containers for my "useless" Sterilite Corp / Sterilite Corporation latched 26L containers x2 / a "useless" Rubbermaid latched 28.4 L container from the nearby London Drugs. One of the lids is dirty, so I disinfected it when I got home. Yay for stepladders and helpful employees when I could find them at the store!

Then I decided to go out AGAIN at 4:45 on a 401 to the Ironwood London Drugs, even with reduced Sunday bus schedules. I went to Shoppers at Richmond Centre first to buy Uncle Ben's Rice x2 (Long Grain and Wild Fine Herbs / Wholegrain and Wild Garden Herb) for November appointment planning. However, I also had to go back across the street to Shoppers Drug Mart from Brighouse Station because the employee there had failed to give my Shoppers Optimum card back to me after I paid for my rice, which did NOT help!

When I finally got the next 408 Ironwood at 5:30, I discovered that a Z-Grip pen had somehow FALLEN APART in my small reusable bag - WTF? Another one was unretracted, so I had to get rid of all that detritus on the bus. At least I finally got my third and final two blue replacement $20 Snapware 35.2L storage container at London Drugs, plus a Purell hand sanitizer because I didn't have one in my small reusable bag for some reason. The expiry date is in March 2021, so it's fine to just chill in there for two and a half years! I FINALLY got home at 6:50 on a 401 when it was getting dark, since I had no patience to wait for the 407.

After COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 10:15 so we could finally go to Dr. Wise's office downtown for my eyeball ultrasound follow-up: MORE PAPERWORK AND APPOINTMENTS! We discussed my nephews, therapy, serial killers using white vans, Ted Bundy, the Green River Killer, Paul Bernardo, BTK, and more. When I got home at 12:25 (after Barry went into "robot mode" and blamed jet lag from Japan), I chilled for a bit. I'll have to go to Dr. Wise's office again for another follow-up appointment on November 29 because of my dense cataract needing to be measured by the UBC Eye Care Clinic on Willow Street. AIYA!

Then I called Barry about my successful Nov. 15 appointment rescheduling with the UBC Eye Care Centre when I called them about it at 1:40. It'll be at 9:15 AM on November 15 [which means he has to pick me up at 8:30 AM because of rush hour] instead of 3:30 PM on the same day. That works better with his scheduling because the Pathways office closes at 4. At least I had a lot of time to write out my plans on index cards and my Wordpress Drafts, plus message CANUCKS NATION about it without other people wanting my attention RIGHT NOW! If it weren't for that, things might be better in that way, but Jimmy IS a narcissist...

Later, I went to London Drugs on a 401 at 5:55 for replacement Garnier Fructis orange Marula Oil shampoo and conditioner / Ivory original body wash, and a purple replacement LifeCandy shower pouf. I also bought two red $2 Cannon / Grand Patrician MARTEX washcloths, on-sale Brookside Chocolate bars x2 for Jon's birthday in November (Roasted Almond and Sea Salt / Cranberry Almond with Blood Orange Flavor), Waterbridge Connoisseur Premium Liqueur chocolate brandy beans (Christmas stuff on sale at the stores already before Halloween...), bulk Always pads, original Dawn dish detergent, and Purell hand sanitizer x3 before getting home at 6:45 on a 407. My first actual shopping trip to London Drugs / this particular London Drugs store after certain things have happened! Woo!

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 2 on a 414 for my appointment with Rachel at The Caring Place. Then I went to get 48 on-sale chewable Pepto-Bismol tablets at London Drugs. The pharmacy next door has a bottle of 24 for $6.99, but the sale price of $8.49 at London Drugs is better, especially since the pharmacy doesn't have the bigger size. I also got on-sale store brand plastic wrap, 400 Mead index cards, and on-sale Dawn dish detergent before getting home at 3:55 on a 407.

After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart, where I bought Palmolive Ultra Strength dish detergent for that computer chair which now has grease on it, as per Andrew's and my phone call on Friday about Teunis moving to Saskatchewan because they can buy a house there with saved money / swapping out the computer case for a smaller one in September since it's still part of our deal. I got NEW Nissin prawn noodles x2 / NEW Nissin soya sauce and pork noodles x2 / on-sale Western Family beef noodles x2 / on-sale Western Family vegetable noodles x2, JOY dumplings x4 (Pork and Tri-Treasure, Lamb and Onion, Pork and Vegetable, Pork and Chive), Winter Creek raw oysters x2 for Raw Oyster Day (expires on Aug. 6), NEW on-sale Peace Tea iced tea x4 (Razzleberry raspberry / Lemon Love lemon tea / Caddy Shack tea and lemonade / Greenest of all Teas green tea) and on-sale Earth's Own unsweetened almond milk.

Also purchased on-sale Clorox wipes x2, on-sale Kraft Parmesan cheese, a Hungry Man turkey dinner, Arm and Hammer baking soda, Arm and Hammer toothpaste, on-sale Prego Fresh Mushrooms pasta sauce, World Authentica Cuisine pasta sauce, on-sale Western Family blueberry-pomegranate yogurt, on-sale Western Family frozen vegetables, Vedan mushroom and artificial cuttlefish instant noodles, Wei Lih spicy beef noodles, and Six Fortune broad noodles. Then my debit card got declined a couple of times because I couldn't swipe my chip card, and the magnetic stripe couldn't be read! I think I'll take Barry's advice and go to Coast Capital sometime so I can figure out this shit. After that, I paid my Shaw bill online at home. That also gave me some stress because the bill was twice as high as it should have been, and I had to make a new Shaw ID and secure password at their website! Damn technology!

Mailed an Easter card and assorted stickers to Fraser and Henry, and mailed a birthday card to Vanessa in Langley.

I called Barry at 8:35 AM to tell him about the mouse on the glue trap which I discovered last night. When he came by at 11:15, he said that it was STILL MOVING! We both heard it squeak, so I wanted him to just take it out of here as fast as possible. I left for Jon's at 2:40 today after DOUBLE COFFEE TIME (stopping by Kam Do Bakery for a BBQ pork bun) with the Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper chips, Ragusa Noir chocolate bar, heart-shaped Ferrero Rocher chocolates, Harmony's early birthday card, and the Alter Eco Burnt Caramel / Salt and Malt / Blackout / Brown Butter chocolate bars. (she thanked me for it later - Jon said his face would melt off with all those chips!) I had to wait a few minutes for them to get home from school, and Ayler immediately wanted to show me his "100 Days of School" pasta craft and something else. He's definitely learning to write and to draw flowers!

They played with toy trains, read Robert Munsch and other books, ate hummus / banana bread / seashell pasta (they could NOT have my white wine or spicy green sauce with white beans), discussed his field trip to the Orpheum to see a symphony and STAR WARS, and Ayler showed me his school break schedule to ask about the dates and what they meant. I think Ayler can read simple words on his own now, which is great! I also did some dishes while giving the kids some (diluted) orange juice and more banana bread. Later, Ayler tried to walk acrobat-style on top of the couch, and Hiero wanted to go jump on the mattress that they were giving away - NO! Ayler made a "Snot Construction Zone" out of his red Chinese gelatinous dessert of leen-goh, and Hiero said, "If you eat a people, you will go to jail for a long time [reasonable] and [my parents] will go too! [HUH?]" HAHAHAHA! Jon did put Hiero in a box, though! I got home at 8 on a 407, which is pretty par for the course!

I got THE WRONG SIZE - I DON'T NEED KING SIZE! Also got a NEW steak and mushroom melt from Subway, and on-sale Reese's peanut butter and chocolate hearts x3 / a Cambridge cutlery set / rubbing alcohol. After I got home at 12:30 on a 401, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online. I'll shower later at some point.


Edit: I went back out at 3:20 to see if I could return / exchange the king-size pillowcase pack. Thank goodness I could! I bought Alter Eco Pacific organic chocolate x3 (Brown Butter / Salt and Malt / Blackout) for Harmony's birthday, Palmolive Oxy dish detergent, and two properly-sized pillowcases! I got home at 3:50, and it was time for some white tea!

When I got home at 3:05, I had to throw away the old dish drainer plus some knives / teaspoons / tablespoons that had gunk and crud on them from said old dish drainer!

I went to the pharmacy next door at 11:30 for MORE DRUGS to be picked up tomorrow! After (MORE) COFFEE TIME, I left at 2:55 to make it to Jon's at 3:30. I saw Grace Tang before I stopped by Kam Do Bakery to buy a shredded pork bun. When I got to the house, Hiero just stared out the window at me until Jon opened the door, and I saw that his student was already there. Ayler and Harmony were sleeping in the back room because they were sick, and I soon found out why Hiero had just stared at me - he was coughing and sniffly, too! Both kids had stayed home from school today, and maybe tomorrow too. I'd read some email about cardigans from Mom an hour before I got to the house, and Jon managed to find the bag before he got back to teaching. I didn't expect Hiero to show a lot of excitement over his new Mega Blocks and cupcake birthday card with a ton of stickers, but he managed to muster up some level of acknowledgement, which is fine by me. "When can I open it?" "I guess when your mom and dad say you can." "STICKERS!" "Yeah, just don't put them all over the floor in five minutes like you did the other day." (that was still on the floor...)

I just did a lot of reading out loud to Hiero from a bunch of different books, and didn't mind doing two rounds of dishes. Ayler smiled at me when he emerged from the back room, which I returned. He said he was feeling dopey, which is understandable. I said that sweet things weren't the best for you when you were sick, but he had a bit of vegan ice cream with his bread pudding (as I'd had - plus, I had borscht with sausage) and pozole. When Jon and Harmony were out of the room, I said that I'd wanted chocolate from my fridge the last time I was sick, but didn't feel like eating it at all. I left the house after 7:40, noting that Ayler was actually staying up a little, but he would probably go back to bed soon afterward. Got home at 8:55 on a 407, which is fine by me.

Today's agenda: THE NHL 100TH ANNIVERSARY WINTER CLASSIC! Eric Ho came over early at 1:30 so I could give him the parking pass / parking permit. While he was busy with that, I hid most of my bottled water in my room - didn't stop him from drinking three of them! I was going to buy more bottled water on Wednesday anyhow, but WOW. Then I could FINALLY give Eric his 37 index cards in a Ziploc bag, Cadbury's dark milk chocolate bar, Terry's Chocolate Orange, Ragusa Noir chocolate bar, big Jersey Milk chocolate bar, birthday card, and Christmas card... he definitely thanked me for all of that. He offered to get me food since he was going back home for dinner, but we ended up "sharing" a can of Vegetable Beef Chunky Soup instead at 4:50, meaning I had to wash two bowls and spoons instead of one when he decided that he'd be too full for dinner at home. *rolleyes*

We talked about Nathan and Ciel, trying the Italian Tomato again, serial killers, his children's cough medicine (the pharmacy ran out of other cough medicine since everyone's sick now), remote-controlled stuff, electric cars, gasoline, Steph, Lisa, Carey Price, TMZ, annoying Christmas commercials, Google Home, SURVIVOR, the Hollywood sex scandals, the 1917 Montreal Canadiens / Ottawa Senators, and the negative temperatures at the outdoor game. Also discussed goalies not being allowed to crouch to make saves back in 1917, people swearing, the parking pass patrol, my hockey fan friends, Jon, Harmony, all my nephews, Robert Pickton, Discord, Jimmy, Daniel Alfredsson and the Hall of Fame, venting, SkipTheDishes, Brent Burns, the Vegas Golden Knights winning 2-1 over the Penguins (Fleury's revenge!), THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES movie, and Roberto Luongo / Cory Schneider / Eddie Lack. Eric left during the second intermission at 5:55 to rest before dinner, but I managed to offload all the leftover snacks on him. No, I don't feel like eating crumbs from a bag! Eat them yourself, dude! I also found out that he neglected to retract a pen - UGH!

Then it was COFFEE TIME when I got home at 11:45 on another 407.

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!


From Julie M. and Dr. Phil: KELTSEY?! So close, yet so far...




From Janina: Lasagna is just really spaghetti-flavored cake!

After COFFEE TIME, I left at 4:40 to get to Jeremy's for white Eric's birthday dinner in the HOT weather! I managed to get a 99 bus that dropped me right in front of Kingsgate Mall, but the transit security officer said that I should wait two seconds for the bus to stop. Yeah, I know that, but you're directly in my way! I bought a Western Family Swiss 72% dark chocolate bar for Eric (because anything from home would probably have MELTED on the way to Jeremy's), some on-sale Vancouver Only lemon dish detergent, a Lever 2000 Pure Rain body wash (which seems more easily openable right now, so I'm using it immediately), and some Old Spice Denali body wash at Buy-Low for the Gwei Lo before cutting through Dude Chilling Park to get to Jeremy's. To my mild surprise, dinner was already in progress after Eric joked about whether I really wanted to come in. No, I want to sweat my ass off all evening instead! I gave Eric his birthday card and chocolate bar, and told him that Steph said hi and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, too!

Ayler and Hiero were there, and acknowledged my presence by saying that I was sitting diagonally from them. We had fish tacos, fish sauce, coleslaw, a simple tomato salad, and hibiscus juice. It was fine, and it was only $8 for me. Randal was there, but I barely acknowledged him. I saw white Eric #2, which was a surprise. I played for a bit with Hiero, who wanted to steer the blue car through "traffic" and went over the barrier of Christon's foot. We watched Japanese babymetal music videos by きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ (thanks to Stanley - who's getting married on November 18), some Albert Ayler, and even a bit of a TedTalk thanks to Hiero pressing a bunch of computer keys. Ayler said that he can walk to kindergarten some of the days, which makes sense!

The kids went home early after excitedly watering the plants. Jeremy asked me if I knew what a literal douche (the stuff which is sold in stores) was when I got back from the bathroom - I said that Christon would have to look it up himself! Then we watched Kendrick Lamar (thanks to Stanley) and Tyler the Creator before Jon thought we could all go to Twelve Kings for a pint. Eric and I just opted to go home afterwards, which was great for me and my alone time! I got home at 8:15 after discussing Whitney Houston / Erykah Badu / my tentative sushi plans with Eric.


From Julie: I know you're upset. Why don't you post something passive-aggressive on Facebook and not explain the situation. That usually helps.

After I had COFFEE TIME and called London Drugs customer service to find out when their current sale ends on Rubbermaid dish drainers (May 28), Barry picked me up at 12:45 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I bought on-sale Classico pasta sauce x2 (Four Cheese and Tomato / Pesto), noodles, a shower pouf, Teriyaki Rice / Noodles Sidekicks, preserved vegetables, on-sale Cheemo perogies x2 (Country Mushroom and Potato / Bacon / Romano Cheese), pork and tri-treasure / lamb and onion / pork and vegetable / pork and chives JOY dumplings at the Big Crazy price (which saves me a trip out there if it's the same price), on-sale store brand paper towels, and JML chicken and mushroom noodles. I also got on-sale Western Family French Vanilla ice cream, NEW Pillsbury poutine Pizza Pops in a special edition (I love the alliteration!), NEW Pillsbury cheese pizza bites, NEW Pillsbury pepperoni pizza bites, Juzz Mee curry noodles, a BC roll for $3.99 (better than the 22-piece $10.99 assorted rolls if the expiry date is still tomorrow, May 25), Vedan noodles x2 (Spicy Mushroom / Cuttlefish and Mushroom), and on-sale Ruffles chips x3. (Loaded Potato Skins / Sour Cream and Bacon / All-Dressed) I also saw preserved Cordia seeds while I was in the Chinese jars aisle, so made a note of that to tell Citrus so he can tell his sister.

While I was at the store, I helped a random white guy with some Nissin black garlic oil noodles, and told an old grandma that her shawl looked pretty. (it had Japanese women with fans on it!) She at least thanked me! When I got home at 2:10, Barry did agree to help me with changing the batteries on the phone in my bedroom, which is good. Afterwards, I paid my Shaw bill online today, then somehow unplugged my computer speakers while trying to figure some stuff out! My cashier recognized me, and so we chatted a bit - his name is Ray, and he has a white half-beard thing. I left again at 6:30 to London Drugs, where I got a new on-sale dish drainer (April 11, 2015) on Aisle 1 / on-sale purple GUM Comfort Slide flossers since today was the last day of their being on sale currently / an on-sale Slinky toy plus an on-sale Redbox pre-historic dinosaur toy set with trees (#24359) for Ayler's birthday.

I got a much more helpful computer associate this time (yesterday's associate had told me to go to the front for checkout and didn't seem interested in customer service), who sold me a black Microsoft Wired 600 keyboard for $20. Thank goodness it worked when I got home at 8:30 (just missing a 407 and having to wait for the next one), after a mini heart attack when it initially wouldn't work to put in my password at startup! This one is quieter and much lighter, too! Time to email Harmony to see when a good time would be to drop off the gifts, or see Ayler too, I guess. NOW MY MOUSE AND KEYBOARD ARE FREE OF MIKE AND HIS TAINT!


From the Staples Canada Facebook wall: a six-pack of Cross fountain pen ink cartridge refills and a five-pack of Parker Quink ink cartridge refills with fountain permanent ink are $999,999.99 each?!




Pasta sauce and toys and chips, oh my! )
