THERE WAS ANOTHER WATER SHUTOFF TODAY - NOT IMPRESSED! After I had COFFEE TIME and fielded an early-morning phone call from Megan at the Burrard eye clinic (Dr. Wise wants to see me this week to check her lens choice?! Friday it is...), Barry picked me up at 11 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got bananas, on-sale Silk vanilla almond milk, on-sale Nissin noodles x4 (XO Sauce / seafood / black garlic oil / sesame oil), Koka Noodles x2 (Spicy Black Pepper / Tomato), on-sale Uncle Ben's rice x3 (Smokey Flavor / Tomato and Herb / Mushroom Wild rice), MAGGI LETUP / Maggi Kari Letup noodles, and one litre of NEW on-sale Yamasa soy sauce which expires in late October 2020 (I was able to pull off the annoying tab in the store!) / NEW Allen's Vinegar 500 mL of malt vinegar (crammed with the white vinegar and red vinegar on the Western side of Price Smart) / 700 grams of on-sale Laoganma spicy chili crisp oil for DUMPLING SAUCE! (my jar opener thankfully worked on that when I got home!)

Also bought on-sale Brookside Chocolate x2 (Blackberry and Honey / Pomegranate), NEW on-sale Peace Tea cans x2 (Sno-Berry / Mango Green Tea), Lucky Me! Mami Beef Noodles, one Stouffer's Sauté Sensations microwaveable meal (Grilled Chicken Teriyaki), Western Family frozen veggies in the BIG bag, NEW Olympic Dairy small yogurt tubs x3 (Fig Honey / Citrus Cardamom / Smoked Applewood Vanilla - each 325 grams), Puritan canned Irish stew, on-sale JOY dumplings x5 for the Big Crazy price of $4.99 per bag (the last five available - Pork and Vegetable x2 / Lamb and Onion x2 / Pork and Chive), NEW on-sale Tropical Salsa Kettle Chips, and on-sale mint Oreo cookies. I think I'm looking forward to all the snack food! Haha!

Additional purchases: On-sale Old Dutch Humpty Dumpty cheese sticks (Habanero and Blue Cheese!), on-sale Excel spearmint Soft Chew gum x3, on-sale Western Family bottled water x12 (gotta keep ahead of all these sudden and unexpected water shutoffs around here lately...), Ben and Jerry's Moophoria ice cream x2 (Peanut Butter Cookie Dough to replace the one that Paulo ate last week on Thursday even though he says he owes me / NEW Caramel Cookie Fix), NEW on-sale Hardbite chips x3 (Sweet Ghost Pepper / Avocado and Lime / Black Sea Salt), NEW on-sale Ruffles Flaming Hot BBQ chips, and NEW Campbell's Everyday Gourmet Asparagus and Sweet Basil soup. I got Ray as my cashier, and Barry made a comment about how it took me two hours at the store. I wasn't expecting to take 20 minutes to find the malt vinegar, no thanks to some employees there! After I got home at 12:55, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online. Then I waited out the water shutoff - it was back on by 5:30, THANK GOODNESS!


My WHATEVER T-shirt... YAY!




Hand sanitizer, lots of chips, noodles, canned stew, iced tea, and more! )

After COFFEE TIME, I called the eye clinic to say that I'd run out of eyedrops, so asked what to do. End result: I have an appointment next Friday with Dr. Wise (the only day she's in) to check the eye pressure. The Canucks played Chicago at 5:30 today, and lost 4-3 in overtime. I also saw a dead mouse two inches away from a mousetrap! Guess I'm calling Barry tomorrow...

2018 Year In Review!


THIS ENTRY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NON-ALIGNED TAGS.

[Meme fun: Take the first line from the first post of every month of the year. Repost it here as your year in review. (I'm discounting greetings and things like that :P) Yeah, it's been an interesting year!]

Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of the year. Post the first line of it in your journal as a paragraph, and that's your "Year In Review."

I got a baby girl card for Jason and Vanessa ("KEEP CALM AND CARRY BABY WIPES"), NEW Shasha organic ginger snaps for Vanessa (no sugar?!), 200g of on-sale Ferrero Rocher, 100 store brand bandages, a NEW Carnation variety pack of hot chocolate (TURTLES Canada / Coffee Crisp / After Eight), and NEW Lipton Chicken Noodle Supreme soup from London Drugs, which has just started charging for plastic bags. SO MUCH ON-SALE BLACK PEPPER SALMON JERKY FOR ME AND JIMMY AND JULIE, OH MY! I called Barry at 8:35 AM to tell him about the mouse on the glue trap which I discovered last night. The computer restarted at 6 AM! I called Barry at 9:40 this morning to remind him about going to Rona for a Victor Pest Chaser Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller, which cost $33. I went to the pharmacy next door at 1:50 to refill my prescription early; yes, even Adam commented on it!

I left at 5:55 to get two 3-subject Hilroy notebooks in green and light blue (for home use and road use) from London Drugs, returning home at 6:40 on a late 407. CHOCOLATE AND BATHROOM REPLACEMENTS GALORE AGAIN, and today's date is a palindrome: 8/1/18! Yesterday, Frances C. emailed me to say that she couldn't make it to Felico's because of work, which is fine. I went out at 12 on a 401 so I could buy Campbell's Chunky Soup (Jerk Chicken with Vegetables / Butter Chicken with Vegetables), NESCAFÉ instant coffee (December 16, 2017), a NEW on-sale limited edition Oh Henry! Canada / Oh Henry 4:25 Pop-Up candy bar, barkTHINS snacking dark chocolate with pumpkin seeds for Thanksgiving dinner, NEW limited edition Doritos Late Night Fully-Loaded Nacho chips, and HALLS assorted mint cough drops. I went out at 12:20 on a 414 to do some shopping for on-sale Halloween candy and Advent calendars. COFFEE TIME while I'm still figuring out why Jimmy blocked me instead of just talking to me about what I did...... I should have posed it as a hypothetical a while ago!

Dr. Wise's eye clinic called me at 11:40 AM to say that they had a prospective date for my cataract surgery, which they recommended I take: January 10, 2019! (a Thursday) After leaving Barry a message about it AND being interrupted by Hester about insurance, I called Chrystal at noon at work to see if we could have an annual Christmas dinner (Friday, Dec. 21 after my dentist appointment with Sean), while having COFFEE TIME! Now I can plan stuff - SO GOOD!

I went out at 2 on a 414 to see Rachel at The Caring Place, then tested my Big Crazy colander against enoki mushrooms and macaroni simultaneously - EVERYTHING WORKS WITHOUT LOSING FOOD TO THE HOLES! YAY! The Canucks played Los Angeles at 7 tonight; the game went to overtime, and the Kings won 2-1.


Lucas and Boney have made it to Alec's former cabin on Mount Oriander in Chapter 4 of MOTHER 3. The cabin appears to have been destroyed by a direct lightning strike...

The Canucks played the Sharks at 6 tonight, and lost 4-0. I wondered about Melker Eriksson's name, but Behind the Name says it's the Swedish form of Melchior. Neat factoid there!


From Julie: London is a girl's name?! It should be a PLACE NAME ONLY!




From Julie: LaPiffany?! Why not just Tiffany?!

After COFFEE TIME, Mom and Dad picked me up at 12 so we could go to lunch at #9, go to JYSK in Lansdowne, and then go see Uncle Stanley's female associate Sandy on Kingsway and Slocan about my Disability Savings Plan. I heard way more about growth and investments and stock portfolios than I ever thought possible. After they dropped me off at Oakridge Station, I went to the bathroom (where someone said "hey!" when I used the accessible washroom - TOO BAD BECAUSE I NEEDED TO PEE AND CAN USE THAT ONE!) and then bought on-sale Polar Ice Excel gum x3 from Safeway since I forgot about it yesterday. I got home at 4 on a 401, where I saw John Jugovic, who hasn't seemed to change his opinions since 2002 or so. Ah well...


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: a six-pack of 710mL Coca-Cola which expired on July 1, 2017 (no, thanks!) / a 297g package of Fun Size 3 Musketeers which expires in June 2019 / "large" black, blue, and white pants (maybe if you're a literal child...) / a #9 Restaurant lunch of organ noodles and congee (plus some beef chow mein leftovers) / a thin green T and T Supermarket 大統華超級市場 reusable bag / a skeleton and candy corn Ugly Halloween Sweater ("Get Freaky!") and Nordik boots from JYSK Bed Bath Home in Lansdowne Centre, a random wooden pencil, and a random IKEA Richmond map with random notes on the back.

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!

glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)
The retina specialist's office called me at 3:30 to say that they'd scheduled a cataract surgery consultation appointment for me, on July 12 at 9:30 AM, which is a Thursday. Since I realized that would be the day before my planned dinner with Chrystal, I attempted to call her at work to reschedule, but I got voicemail. I just tried ten minutes later, and got her on the phone. Without any preamble, I told her why I was calling. We eventually rescheduled for July 6, which is good.


From Julie: Dea-Dra?! Is that a really dumbed-down version of Deirdre?!

I did call Chrystal at work yesterday when I got home. We made plans for Friday the 13th, which doesn't bother me. Broadway London Drugs, it is!

Andrew called me at 9, so I was ready for him to bring over my NEWER COMPUTER WITH WINDOWS 7! :D

He came by at 9:45 and spent 20 minutes going over the specifics of the Nvidia computer case / power supply / various components, saying that Teunis is moving to Saskatchewan at the end of the month, telling me about his mom's huge quantities of chili in a Dutch oven, and saying that he was looking forward to a shower after a 14-hour workday. I bet! Thank goodness Chrome synced! Yes, I paid him his $40, and can probably make a $50 payment next time to pay everything off.

I went to the pharmacy next door at 1:50 to refill my prescription early; yes, even Adam commented on it! I'll have to go back next week to get another box that's not dangerously close to expiry at the end of June! Then I got the C94 shuttle bus for my first counselling appointment with Rachel at The Caring Place near Brighouse Park: containers and tools, oh my. I walked to the Dining Terrace food court in Richmond Centre, opting for beef brisket / mixed vegetables / chow mein / Kung Pao chicken from Kung Pao Wok, then got Salsitas chips for the prospective hockey playoffs hangout / dark red handtowels x4 / Speed Stick Ocean Surf deodorant at London Drugs before getting home at 4:20 on a 407. Now, back to mindless tagging work!


Dr. Megha Panda?!




From Julie: Cerinity? BAD SPELLING! It should be Serenity, if anything! Plus DEPAUL?!

From Julie: Lameshia?! I see "Lame" in there! Even if it's not going to be pronounced that way, shouldn't that automatically disqualify the name from your baby name list?!

I'm an aunt again, to Nephew #5, Beckett! I also FINALLY got a call from Rachel at The Caring Place (at 5:15) to say that I could have a spot for counselling (from my intake interview with Jocelyn in January 2017), so we set up ongoing appointments for Fridays at 2:30. WOO!

Lenna says, "But zombies can't talk!" Zombie King Tycoon says, "Actually, I'm just moaning right now. I'm amazed you can understand me!"




From Julie: Fawcet Bess is the store owner of Bess Chicken and Pizza in Cleveland?! Is that like a water faucet or Farrah Fawcett? Like I was telling TinyTalkingNinja in June in Classy's Discord server, most last names do not make good first names!




In the same Discord server, Lurus reminded me that Jessa Duggar Seewald named her first kid SPURGEON. While Charles Spurgeon may have been a good man, that doesn't mean his last name should be used for a first name!

glowing_dragon: (OMFG Yay!)
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?!

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!

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.

I called Chrystal at work at 12:30 - to my surprise, she was on reception duty! We made plans for her to treat me to a belated birthday dinner on Friday the 13th; we'll meet at 7-ish at the London Drugs near Broadway Station. Sounds good to me!





"You Are Not Charismatic"




You are not a born performer, and there's a good chance that you are more reserved than most people.
What you lack in charisma, you more than make up for in humility and honesty. You are content with who you are.

You are not big on seeking the spotlight. You usually prefer spending time alone to shining in a crowd.
The kind of socialization you crave tends to be one on one, deep, and authentic. You see beneath the surface.

Turns out that Tryanna from Pathways was calling me from a private number a lot yesterday, but I finally picked up this morning to see what the heck was up with all those repeated calls. Turns out that she had a cold and couldn't do food shopping today, so we settled on Friday at 1 instead. Auntie Catherine also emailed to wish me a happy belated birthday, and says that we should catch up in the second half of October after her Hong Kong trip with Uncle Y.C. Sure, why not?
