Jimmy blocked me again, but he's an idiot who can't take being told that he is wrong about everything. Despite what he thinks, I did make an effort on his birthday. I just was not available all day, and I definitely did wish him a happy birthday. Of COURSE I went to bed after doing stuff online when I got home after dinner that evening - DUH!

As for Friday, I was going to try drawing him into a conversation after going out with everyone, but I knew I was slightly out of it. (not as much as poor Term, though!) One-word answers definitely made me think that he was upset. For once, I believe it didn't matter. I told him everything that was on my mind, then was called "the most vain person" before he blocked me. He also deflected my question about blocking people on to ME! Nope, you're the one who's an ass at the very least. He's also a sub, and he doesn't GET to have boundaries! HA! Mike thinks we take the meaning out of blocking if we do it to each other all the time, as it's going to be an empty gesture eventually. At least OUR communication seems to be pretty good! I also talked to Helen Y. about it, which helped!

After COFFEE TIME, I attempted to get to the eye clinic at 1 using the bus stop across the street, but NO! THAT ONE WAS ALSO NON-OPERATIONAL, which I only found out after waiting 20 minutes! So while I was out, I went to the pharmacy next door and asked about the measles shot after using the building's wifi to send some photos to myself. According to Adam, I don't strictly need it - phew! Then I went home and officially cancelled my appointment.

Later, in view of all this shit, I called Mom to see if they could pick me up tomorrow instead - they can do that at 11, so that's better for me. The Canucks played Colorado at 6:30 tonight... the game went to overtime and a shootout, but they lost 3-2! UGH!

I was up far too early (6 AM?!) for a smoke detector inspection at 12:45. At least yesterday's snow has melted! Chinese Eric emailed me to wonder where I was because he tried calling me on the 17th (oops), but says that our next hangout could be in late March or early April because there are some INTERESTING games coming up if the Canucks are in playoff contention. Well, I guess we shall see about this!

I showered today (an index card fell into the toilet from the bathroom counter?!), then called Eric about a ride tomorrow to church because of Hiero's glow-in-the-dark bowling birthday party. (Deb had emailed to say that I know mornings are a challenge for them and she's teaching Sunday School tomorrow in any event) When he called me back, he said he had good news and bad news. Korey wasn't in town as I thought ("that would be horrible news for you"), but he had hockey afterwards. That's fine, as I'm only using church as a vehicle to more easily get to the birthday party somehow, which I told him. He'll show up tomorrow at about 9:10 AM. Phew!

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 1:40 on a 401 (just missing a 407!) to do some shopping before seeing Rachel at The Caring Place. I got some takeout Boston Pizza Pasta Tuesday for National Pasta Month in October (Jambalaya Fettuccini!), then went to Price Smart while waiting on that. Bought some NEW on-sale limited edition Doritos Dinamita Chile Limón snacks, NEW on-sale limited edition Doritos Dinamita Nacho Picoso snacks, beef tripe with ginger and green onion for World Tripe Day tomorrow, NEW on-sale Cinnamon Bun Oreos, and NEW on-sale Birthday Cake Oreo Cookies!

When I finally got home at 3:55 on a 407, I discovered that the spicy sauce from the tripe container somehow got on my Oreo cookie packages... YUCK AND EW! I had to open the cookies and put them all in a huge Ziploc bag! Luckily, it didn't seem to get on the Doritos chips packages. (why didn't the cashier put the tripe in a separate bag...)

I managed to take out the old "computer" chair (lots of exposed foam inside) and throw it in the dumpster. Not sorry, Hester! I have a kitchen chair as backup! It's my minor act of rebellion, muhahahaha!

After COFFEE TIME, I left at 2 to catch the C94 for my appointment with Rachel at The Caring Place. Afterwards, I took the 410 to Big Crazy so I could spend $35 on Knorr (extra) hot and sour soup x5 which expires in late January 2019, a slightly smaller 30-centimeter silver metal colander to replace the too-big metallic one from March 2018, a matching metallic silver mixing bowl to replace the pink plastic bowl with pink colander from Mom in April 2014, a premium Shin Ramyun Black spicy Pot-Au-Feu noodle pack, and Sapporo Ichiban chicken noodles. Nothing that would melt in the hot weather - I also just managed to get the 410 after leaving the store - NICE! Then when I got home at 4:15 on a 401 (just managing to get the bus), I washed the bowls and put rubbing alcohol in them to take the stickers off after throwing away the old bowl and colander in the dumpster.

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME, I left at 11:15 to meet Mom and Dad for lunch at 11:30 at Dinesty Dumpling House on a 401. They were so damn late that I had to call them from the fucking restaurant to confirm that lunch was on! Then they tried subtly blaming it on me - no, I did not ask for the stuff they passed on to me! No, I did not need to be told what the vinegar and ginger was for - I know SLB routine! Plus, I definitely did not have control over where the waitress seated me! Talked about Uncle William, Hiero "punching" the baby because he was jealous, Ayler being protective of the baby and wanting to sandwich him with cushions (cute but dangerous!), hot and sour soup, my leftovers of rice / egg / bok choy / Chinese sausage, Mom buying herbs, and Dad helping to bring the heavy / bulky microwave and toaster oven inside with the newspaper route cart from the old days. I finally got home at 12:45, and was able to relax thereafter!

I scanned the email (which had possible scheduling), but didn't see where the hangout was going to be, so of course I emailed everyone to ask where it was. Chinese Eric actually was on the ball with his email and replied to say that it was going to be at Jeremy's place.

Via Facebook messages, Andrew M. apologized for not calling me last night, and we worked out payment for the Windows 7 computer / hard drive / Windows 7 key in writing, which is definitely a good thing. At least I have $200 instead of $150 in that cash envelope, so things can get paid off a little bit faster! Then he called at 7:20 to discuss his not being a robo-call, computer cases on wheels, sound cards, diabetes, coming to Richmond / Memory Express from Coquitlam, having the kids on the weekend and every other one, and cash vs. e-transfers.

I didn't mind if he wanted to drop by, so that's what he did at 8:20. His reaction upon finding out that this computer has 2 GB of RAM via System Tools: "HOLY CRAAAAAAAAAAAP!" We discussed possibly doing that stuff with the computer next weekend, my being welcome to drop by his place while he fiddles with things, a written receipt on the bank envelope, my computer cases, Google Chrome, my Shaw cable modem, my hard drive being compatible with his setup, and more. He laughed when I dropped all the $20 bills out of the cash money envelope, but that was fine!

While I was at London Drugs, I mailed that KEEP CALM AND BUY BABY WIPES card to Jason and Vanessa, a birthday card with stickers for Fraser to Steph, and Jimmy's pretty early birthday card while he's still in my good books. Then I got home at 3:25 to an AWESOME email from Chinese Eric, who hopes to hang out before Chinese New Year, and says it's been a bit busy at work. Ha, definitely understandable!

"You Should Drive a Black Sports Car"




You are a strong and determined person. You are interested in power, and you're not afraid to grab some for yourself.
You may be driven, but you aren't cold about it. You are deeply emotional and in tune with the people around you.

You are both loyal and stubborn. If you're true to someone, you'll be true to the end... no matter what.
You are protective, both of yourself and the people you love. You love danger, but only when you've mitigated the risks.










"You Are Harry"




You can be a dark and pessimistic person a lot of the time, but you aren't as nihilistic as you seem.
Deep down, you are a hopeful romantic. It is easy for you to get your heart broken, and you are quite guarded as a result.

You are a genuine person to your core, and you insist that others accept you as you are. You are never one to fake it.
You have a great sense of humor and don't care about looking silly. You are always the first person to laugh at life.
