After COFFEE TIME at 4:45, I left at 6:30 to meet Chrystal at the Broadway London Drugs at 7-ish for a belated birthday dinner treat! I had her Want Want Snowy Crackers from Big Crazy, of course. I was standing around reading MAD MAGAZINE when Chrystal came up behind me. We summarily went to Original Joe's after she said that I could pick anywhere I wanted because it was her treat, and we waited about 20 minutes, "sharing" a table with two other guys. She had a burger with dill sauce and fries (which I ate - plus the pickle from the burger), and I had steak and salmon bites with vegetables instead of rice because that would take too long. We talked about her nephew Ethan liking water / numbers / Science World, and definitely knowing what he (doesn't) want, and calling Chrystal "Yee Ma" / not hugging Auntie Kathy after he says he will. I told her about Ayler and Hiero both wanting to hug me - and going through with it - and the Thanksgiving dinner recently. Yup, Jon and Harmony really need a place to live, and my parents are travelling AGAIN. The waitress apparently loved my "warm" red sweater from Sears, so I definitely let her touch it, haha! COMPLIMENTS!

Chrystal's going to take two weeks off at the beginning of December, and it sounds like she really needs it! I said I'd call her at the end of November to set something up since that made sense to me! I wondered whether she'd thought about living on her own, and people have definitely asked her that before! Not that there's anything wrong with living with her parents, of course! We talked about Christmas cards being on sale at London Drugs already, THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, just watching TV when she should go to bed way before 2 when she has to work at 9, the MEGA SUSHI dinner, a new Chipotle opening up around that area soon, her sleeping in and "wasting" her weekend mornings, Emily / Mike, Phil and Grace's baby girl, and not going to church as much. When we had to leave (after I exchanged a bent fork for a new one, and after thanking Chrystal for the dinner), I wanted the guys beside us at another table to make way, but got into a conversation with one of the (brown-haired / scruffy-ish) guys about Bo Horvat / Reddit / my looking 21 / Donald Trump / his jokingly blaming me for his not getting a burger anytime soon. I even touched him on his shoulder and arm, which is pretty good for me, all things considered! I got home at 10, and then proceeded to blow people's minds in the r/hockey Discord when I revealed that I'd been alive in 1991! (context: going to the West Edmonton Mall)


From Julie S. and Snapchat: I think my Icy Original Lemonade may be expired... Sell by November 13, 1657?!

Today is Friday the 13th and No Bra Day!


From Pete and The Spellery: HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13TH! On Friday, Oct. 13, 1307, King Philip IV of France, with the consent of Pope Clement V, falsely accused The Order of the Knights Templar of heresy to relieve his debts to them. They were tortured into confession and burned at the stake. But you probably thought the date was about cute spooky shit!




From Laid-Back Corner: Culleen Williams?! That should be spelled as COLLEEN. It also reminds me of the Scottish dish known as cullen skink.




From Laid-Back Corner: Dirdra O'Flaherty?!




From Not Always Right: Jon Dangerously?! So are you dangerous?

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

I felt weird before I went to bed last night, so I went to the bathroom and discovered redrum: WHAT THE FUCK, BODY?! Good thing I discovered it BEFORE going to bed, otherwise I'd have had to break out the hydrogen peroxide! I told Classy, the r/hockey Discord server, and Jimmy about it too, poor people! Haha! I also was invited to baby Henry's 100-Day(ish) celebration next month when they'll be in town, so that's a good thing. I can also laugh normally now without it being drowned out by sudden coughing; also a good thing!


On the FINAL FANTASY VI boat ride to Thamasa overnight, Terra has a conversation with General Leo Christophe about love and emotions. Shadow appears, saying that he thought he'd sleep out under the stars. Terra asks him whether he heard the preceding conversation, but Shadow can't help her with those answers. "In this world are many like me who've killed their emotions. Don't forget that."




From The Richest and Pinterest: Smirnoff Ice labelled as Kids Drinks?!




From Julie: This is my job. It's soda pressing.

From Mikki and Janina: A waffle is just a more considerate pancake. It's like, here, let me hold that syrup for you in these convenient boxes.




Chiquita Tate?! Like the Chiquita Banana?




From The Richest: Football doughnuts labelled as baseballs?! FAIL!

Today is Retirement Day!


From Not Always Right: Karen Jessie?!




From Baby's Named A Bad Bad Thing: Norbertine Bresslem-Roth?! Does Norbert REALLY need a feminine form?!




From Not Always Right: Talisha Cooper?! At least this is better than Devontae...




From Not Always Working: Tanqueray Strange?! She isn't even black, so she can't have this name! However, she IS local, being from White Rock!

Today is also Nephew #3 Fraser's SECOND BIRTHDAY! Jon sent me a Facebook message about coming over tomorrow at about 12:15 since they could use my help in feeding and entertaining the kids before / during Jon's teaching at 12:30. Ha! Good luck with feeding them lunch (or any meal, really) in 15 minutes! But I totally understand the need for someone else to keep them generally out of trouble when Daddy is teaching! I also left a message on Chinese Eric's voicemail for his own 37th birthday, too! Then I called Barry about that silverfish issue: somehow, I don't think OFF would solve that problem, but whatever.


HOW TO LOVE YANKEES WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE?!

I had to take out ANOTHER dead mouse on a glue trap last night at 10 PM - UGH! Yes, I definitely had to have some whiskey after that!

It's Air Conditioning Day and WORLD OYSTER DAY today, so of course I definitely had to have my two pounds of Fanny Bay raw oysters! :D


The FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party comes to the last room of Umaro's Cave with the Magitek Armor and this soldier. He turns out to be Biggs from the beginning of the game, and tells them: "I've failed as a soldier..." Time to teleport out of the dungeon, and bring Emperor Zemus with us instead!




Emperor Zemus comes with the FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party inside Umaro's Cave, and orders Biggs to join them because he was the emperor. This time, Soldier Biggs says: "Lieutenant Biggs... Reporting, sir! Yes, sir... I'll join you!"




From the Save-On Foods Facebook wall: A Save-On Foods store in Winnipeg built this cart corral which only holds two shopping carts! Good job! NOT.

Managed to import my entire journal to Dreamwidth, so that's where I'll be posting from. I CANNOT DEAL WITH THE NEW LJ UPDATE PAGE! I'll mirror posts, of course.



At 5:30, we were off for the long journey to Westwood Plateau in Coquitlam through Port Moody! It ended up being near to Billie's! We had to pick Jon up at Tom Lee first. Mom missed the sign, so we had to take a scenic detour around Yaohan before meeting Jon. Then we went to Jon and Harmony's, where Steph was holding baby Ayler while Harmony got ready. He grabbed my finger, which I still think is cute! I kinda failed at holding him, but managed to sit him up in my lap so he could see what was going on since he loves that. When it was time to go, I elected to ride in Jon and Harmony's car. The baby was fussy for all but fifteen minutes of the LONG ride to Coquitlam, but they figured that it would be okay as long as he got SOME sleep. Of course, it was pretty loud at the banquet, too. Sat with Peter's family and some other people, which was fine. Saw Aaron at the DJ booth, which was cool. They had a lot of food (CHEESECAKE!), white wine, entertaining games, and COFFEE!

Got home at 11 after an eventful car ride that involved taking 25 minutes to get to Lougheed Highway from Westwood Plateau, filling up the car since the "FILL UP" light came on, and being stopped by the police since Mom was driving with her lights off after the trip to the gas station. In fact, Mom was so stressed when the police car wanted to stop her... she drove right into the sidewalk when stopping in the lane across the street from the apartment complex where I live. Shortly after I got home, Eric M. got on MSN to ask whether I was going to church tomorrow... I was half NOT going to go anyway because I'd had too much religion (I know - religious ceremony) AND because Mom hoped to see me. Then he said that he had meetings afterwards (I could deal with his being there early) if that impacted my decision, which needed to be made SOON as he was going to bed. Okay, then I'm definitely NOT going!
