"You Are Psychopathy"




At your darkest times, your heart turns cold. You can operate without concern for anybody but yourself.
You may not have a psychopath, but you have the charm and calculation of one. It just depends on whether you want to turn it on.

While psychopaths are dangerous, your cool demeanor can serve you and the world well... if you let it.
Your lack of anxiety means you can navigate emergencies and stressful situations better than most people. Not much gets under your skin.










"You Practice Self-Care Regularly"




You are a pro at self-care, and you make sure to take time for yourself every day. You run on full... not empty!
While some people may worry about putting themselves first too much, you don't give it a second thought. You know what you need.

By taking good care of yourself, you can take better care of others. You have plenty of resources to go around.
If only everyone practiced as much self-care as you do, the world would be a much happier place!










"You Are Tough"




You are deep and resilient. You can get through anything, and you always have the ability to dig deep.
Your good deeds go unnoticed, and you don't mind being part of a group effort. You're happy to work behind the scenes.

When it comes to fashion, you have your own unique style. You update it over time, but you rarely change your overall look.
You dress to work hard and be comfortable - nothing too fancy. However, you also add some fun subtle flair.










"You Are Roasted Vegetables"




You are a bit of a homebody, and there's no better time to be at home than the holidays. You love this part of the year.
You feel the most productive and centered when you're at home. No matter how small, your home is truly your castle.

You live a simple and uncomplicated life. You think the most important thing is to make yourself happy.
You see less as more because you make sure to make it more. Nothing is too small or inconsequential for you to enjoy.










"You Are House of Yes"




Your family tends to prefer a picture-perfect holiday, but you can only fake it for so long.
You've got serious history with these people, and you're not one to brush over the past. Even for Thanksgiving!

You are a bit of an oddball yourself, and you tend to have strong passions. Some would call them obsessions.
Once you get your mind set on something, you're not going to change it. You tend to be single focused.






SO FUCKING TRUE!
glowing_dragon: (Consumer Whore)
I left at 1:55 on a 407 to make it to Jon and Harmony's and the store prior to playing with Ayler and Hiero before Thanksgiving Dinner. Since I left so early, I went to Shoppers Drug Mart to see if they had sriracha sauce. They did, as well as on-sale Scaeros / Coffin Crisp / Ghostly Kit-Kats / Scaries, plus NEW Korean BBQ Kettle chips! After that, I walked over to IndigoSpirit to see if they had the newest Bathroom Reader: Uncle John's OLD FAITHFUL 30th Anniversary Bathroom Reader (Bathroom Readers' Institute). They didn't since they were only limited distribution in BC, but I did manage to have someone help me at a kiosk so I could just have the book shipped to me at home this week. It saves me another trip out to the mall even if it is nearby! That took a while, but I still managed to be at Jon's place by maybe about 3:15 or so! Ayler asked me what I'd do if they moved downtown - well, I would probably take the train and the bus out to wherever they would be living!

The boys fought with each other as usual (and Hiero fell off the couch's armrest!), but I might have distracted them with the promise of reading to them. Ayler asked if he could sit on my lap, which was fine until my legs started falling asleep. There was a kiddy book with Legos to describe Bible stories, Chinese characters books, a Taan Moon book, a body book, and other things. Randal came over for a piano lesson and stayed for dinner afterwards. Dinner was beef stew with tendons, carrots, and typical Pho garnishes like bean sprouts (and Vietnamese subs!), plus an apricot / grain salad with feta and ricotta cheeses... so non-traditional, but still good! Probably a good thing that I have a turkey backup here at home! Jeremy came over later, which livened the evening up and made it more silly. We talked about Jeremy's cold, baby Henry's banquet (Jon can't attend because of Stanley's wedding on November 19 - but he doesn't even know what he's doing for it?!), Fred becoming a cop in Toronto (and seeing "shades of grey" in morality), the Whip, 12 Kings, Jen being way more conservative / less liberal than she was when we met her, documentaries, Tom Petty, Youtube jams, C+C Music Factory, LL Cool J, Ace of Base, pissing off Auntie Wylene with Salt-N-Pepa and Green Day back in 1994, Bob Dylan / Keith Richards, Silverchair, Bush, and seeing how much the kids knew about fall. We told them that Canadian Thanksgiving was in October and the United States had theirs in November, wanted to know if the leaves would turn blue, and generally had fun with them.

Ayler wanted to tie knots with his Vietnamese noodles, while Hiero wanted to bite the very hard pomelo rind to see if he could eat it that way. That's not how those things work! I saw a kindergarten worksheet with a colorful turkey on it - Ayler had managed to write his own name on it in a reasonably legible fashion! Jeremy brought up the possibility of becoming pregnant when you're already pregnant, so I said that of course there was a name for that: SUPERFETATION! Then he said that it sounded like I got that from a Bathroom Reader: he's SO RIGHT! Of course I had to tell them that I ordered the newest one to ship to my place! At about 7, I left after watching Hiero play train tracks by himself, bidding Jeremy a good night and thanking Jon and Harmony for the dinner. Jon actually thanked me for hanging out early with the kids, surprisingly. Harmony said that it was still pretty stressful since they haven't found a new location to move to yet, and they only have three weeks left in this place!

Ayler and Hiero also surprised me by wanting hugs before I left, so of course I obliged. I would NOT do "falling hugs" as Ayler wanted, though. Why? BECAUSE THEY WOULD HURT! On my way home, I decided to stop by the Oakridge Safeway to see if they had a "fabled" chicken-bacon-ranch sandwich as Milan Penner (Jen now has the same last name as she does!) had told me about YEARS ago in CANUCKS NATION or whatever the group chat was called then. I'd forgotten about that till Jimmy said something about it in Facebook messenger recently since she wants to meet him at some point. The Safeway did have made-to-order sandwiches at the deli, which was good enough for me. The sandwich even had guacamole, and I was also able to pay for a second bottle of sriracha sauce right there at the deli counter instead of having to go to the cash register just for that. I got home at 8:20 on a 407, and talked to the Canucks fan chat and Discord for a bit. Now, bedtime!

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
Mom and Dad picked me up at 5:50 with a bunch of stuff, detailed below. We went to White Spot because I vetoed Dinesty. It's my birthday, so I get to choose, dammit! We talked about Steph, this upcoming winter, Jon needing to be a parent (I don't care!), Netflix, Auntie Grace, Dave He, Auntie May and Auntie Vivian and AWANA at church (like I'm going back?!), Phil / Uncle Peter / Auntie Ying, my curried red quinoa, Mom "ordering" coffee (she did NOT!), attempts to get me to ask Eric for a ride on Sundays (NO - I LIKE MY FREEDOM!), and pickles. I got home at 7:25, which was fine.


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: one funeral home mint from Dignity Funeral Home, a birthday card, $10 in cash, a 15-pack of Royale double roll toilet paper, Strawberry Shine NIVEA lip balm, 20 GUM flossers, 7 Simple Cleansing facial wipes for mascara removal, a Life jasmine and cactus flower extract purifying face mask, Dove cucumber and green tea body wash, a mini-pack of President's Choice Kleenex, Burt's Bees nourishing lip balm with mango butter, and Schwarzkopf Professional GLISS Hair Repair shampoo.

Also: a Savvy Home facial tissue box (90!), a 132-count Royale tissue box, Got2b Rockin' It dry shampoo, two Playtex Sport Combo ultra-thin pads and two unscented tampons, one small Purell hand sanitizer bottle, a small Dove Cool Essentials antiperspirant, a GUM Ora-Clean toothbrush, Essence volumizing lash powder, a Schick Quattro for Women raspberry razor blade, and Yes To coconut cleansing wipes.

Plus: a Hotel Wing International Chinese toothbrush and toothpaste, a light blue bra with yellow dots (which is not even my size), two thin Rabbit and Bears Happy Day "The Moment" notebooks, an 8-pack of April Cornell note cards, a blue-grey vest from The Tog Shop, light purple socks, a pink pajama set with hearts on them, a yellow pajama set with hearts on them, and one very light blue child-sized Jockey pair of underwear. {31}

"Your Imperfect Heart is Honest"




Your heart is imperfect because it is so intuitive and perceptive. You tend to know the deal without people needing to say it.
You may read between the lines, but you don't expect others to. You are very truthful - and even brutally frank - when it comes to love.

You are faithful and devoted to the person that you choose to love. Your heart doesn't waver or stray.
You can be a bit obsessive when your heart is set on someone. You'll face it - you're addicted to love.




glowing_dragon: (Crazy-Eyed Bear)
After MORE COFFEE TIME, I left for Jon and Harmony's at 2. I stopped by the Kam Do Bakery to get a BBQ pork bun to eat on the train, then got to the house at 2:45 or so, right on time. I was delayed a couple of minutes by some neighbor lady with a dog who recognized me from Mom's Facebook photos. I didn't really mind talking to her, though. At least the door was open, probably because it was pretty hot outside! When Jon asked, I requested some water. The kids were eating some snacks when I got there: Hiero offered me his peach pit (no thanks!) and Ayler told me that they didn't have any more BBQ pork buns. That's fine, as I'd just eaten one! Then came the usual questions about how long ago and what time I'd eaten it, along with Ayler reciting all the Canada Line stations up to Olympic Village. He's getting smart!

While Jon's music student Justin was over, the kids were pretty loud, but made "gas stations" out of bristle blocks ("Gas gas gas!"), offered me grapes from their plate (sure!), made long trains, and put some tiny playing cards in numerical order. Apparently, they got them from the hospital ("not blood draws - a vaccine!") a couple weeks ago. At least they're not being taught how to gamble yet! Ayler also wanted me to stay for dinner, so I said I'd think about it. Hiero pointed out some holes in my socks - I swear I just bought them, but who knows? I'll just have to get some more later! Ayler asked me whether Jon would have two more music students; I had no idea! Hiero wanted me to read a book about 100 vehicles to him - sure, why not? It's better than fighting with your brother over toy trains and train tracks!

When Justin left, they "gave" him some train tracks, which he of course put back when they weren't looking. Easy to do! When the kids weren't there, I put back the noisy xylophone and the hammer to go with it, but Ayler was okay with catching the balls with his hand. Jon noticed and thanked me, then a woman came over for a piano lesson. Harmony got home and also invited me to stay for dinner, which was ratatouille / zucchini / corn on the cob. Harmony got home and also invited me to stay for dinner, which was ratatouille / zucchini / corn on the cob. She said that she was thinking about taking the kids to the Family Centre, the park, and then to physio on Wednesday, so my coming over around 12:30 would be good. No time for anything but mushroom soup, then!

Ayler said that we could eat the zucchini seeds, and I offered an apologetic "sorry" to Jon and that other student when Hiero squealed at seeing the corn on the cob. "Corn excitement over here!" Then Ayler said that I could stay for "the ice cream" - cute! Ayler thought that Randal would come over - who knows? He did, though. Hiero told me that Uncle Randal was there, so I asked how he knew. Apparently, he heard Randal's voice. Randal was indeed over for music lessons, and he said hi to me. To be polite, I offered him a frosty Hello back. Whatever, I don't care what the kids think. Then Ayler wondered if he'd eaten yet and whether he'd eat later. I said he might eat later if he hadn't already. Ayler asked why he was reading, so I said that he was probably doing it because he liked reading just like me. That's fine for me, but that's all I'm willing to concede.

Harmony brought out one Easter egg each for the kids (which she'd apparently forgotten about for some time), and Ayler asked why I wasn't having any. I had some chocolate at home already, I told him. Harmony said that I could go after dinner, which was fine by me. I actually had to put down my dinner bowl because Ayler requested a hug before I left, which is totally fine. Ayler also wanted me to stay overnight, so I asked him where I'd sleep. "Share Daddy's pillow!" was the answer I got. I told Harmony that she might want to explain why I could NOT sleep in the same bed as Jon, then left after saying bye to everyone except Randal. If the kids notice and say something, whatever. At 7:15, I was home on a 407, and fielded an email from ERIC HO saying that he'd even had to work on his birthday last week! Poor guy! He wants to catch a Lions game, but I looked at the schedule and the only near ones are in September! Not doable if he wants to hang out as August winds down!

After (MORE) COFFEE TIME, I left at 11:40 AM on a 407 to make it to Jon and Harmony's at 12:15 or so. Apparently, nobody was home, but I heard Ayler's voice a couple of minutes later from the car. Jon made a comment about my San Francisco shirt - yeah, it's pretty noticeable, but I don't care. I entertained the kids while Jon went to Anna's Cake House to get various bakery items for lunch before his violin student Justin came over. They wanted me to read a Chinese vocabulary book and a RUN SALMON RUN book. I helped the kids eat lunch, and made Hiero eat some pork bun to get some protein. No, you're not eating a "meal" that is 98% cantaloupe and cherries! Ayler kept asking me what time Harmony would be home if she was in Kerrisdale or UBC since she got off work early; no idea! Harmony did get home later, when Jon was teaching and telling the boys to listen to me. At least I told them that fact about the 35.4-mile tunnel in Sweden, to which Ayler's only question was "how many hours does it take to get there?" Probably a long time! Harmony mentioned that Ayler had physio, so I could keep Hiero occupied with the toys there. Sure, why not? I sat on a chair there and it BROKE! The owner (Laura) came out to see whether I'd fallen, and the receptionist and other people there seemed concerned too. Apparently, it was a hardware fault which should never have been there. Maybe, maybe not!

We talked about roller coasters and "BUS!" (lots of 8 Fraser buses!) on the short walk to Robson Park from the physio clinic. While there, Ayler wanted to take some other little girls' grapes AND toy buckets! We got a bunch of Vietnamese sandwiches for dinner so we could have something besides blackberries. If Hiero had his way, he'd eat 90% blackberries for dinner - NO! Ayler asked how many hours it would be until I left, then wanted me to stay seven more hours at 7 PM. No, because you'd go to bed soon, and I want to definitely be home way before 1:30-2 AM when the trains and buses stop regular service! When Jon was teaching a piano student named Curtis, I helped to keep Hiero occupied with the "tunnels and arches." I actually got home at 8:05 on a 407, which is relatively efficient at least!

"You Are the Judicial Branch"




You have a well-developed sense of right and wrong, but you are always open to changing your mind about the details.
You have a very rational mind. You never judge until you learn all of the facts and context for something.

You are good at seeing issues in full. You can hold a lot of details in your head at once, and you're able to organize chaos.
You aren't an overly emotional person, and you can see when people are arguing from emotion. You can step back and assess without passion.

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 6 to meet Chrystal at the Broadway Station London Drugs. She definitely appreciated her 35 index cards for her 35th birthday, the Rose and Robin solid chocolate 200g Easter bunny, the giant Dreamworks Trolls milk chocolate heart, the two Christmas Mix packs of Coconut / Red Apple / Very Cherry / Green Apple Jelly Belly jellybeans, the carrot cake Hershey's Kisses, the Ziploc bag full of Hershey's Eggies / Lindt milk chocolate Easter eggs / Lindt white chocolate Easter eggs / Lindt dark chocolate Easter eggs / Brookside Merlot Blackcurrant and Brookside Chardonnay Grape Peach chocolates, and her very belated birthday card! We eventually headed over a block to Menya Japanese Noodle House after I'd glanced at the MAD magazine for sale. (I can't believe I didn't LIKE the Facebook page until I got home tonight!) The place had wood stumps for chairs, which is interesting! I got their Shoyu ramen while we caught up on life - her uncle moving to a Richmond townhouse somewhere, Emily and Mike not having chairs or a table yet, my seeing Uncle Peter and Auntie Ying on the 402 bus yesterday, her nephew Ethan loving numbers, and walking around London Drugs later.

I was going to get WASABI Pringles with my Heluva Good Jalapeno Cheddar chip dip, but ended up getting the sour cream and onion Pringles instead since the green colors were very similar AND they were right next to each other on the fucking shelf! I only found that out after opening them up when I got home at 8:55 on a 407 to try one, and the online shopping options on the London Drugs website only take credit cards and selected Interac cards; the shipping options are equally ridiculous, since $7.95 or $35.95 for ground shipping or UPS Western Canada delivery is exorbitant!

Eric M. called me at 11:30 from church to say that he wouldn't be going back to Richmond, but could give me a ride back from Jeremy's. Sure, I can bus there, and I didn't have to leave the house really early at 2 PM! That gave me more time to do stuff! After COFFEE TIME (during which I almost left with my pants on backwards), I left the house at 4, and killed a slight bit of time at Kingsgate Mall. The Books, Etc. store is now 90% DVDs and puzzles! I bought NEW Moscow Mule Kettle chips, OXO beef bouillon sachets, and a Hot Beef Pho Mr. Noodles bowl from Buy-Low Foods before walking over to Jeremy's at 5:15 or so. Unfortunately, I had to see my ex-friend Randal, who mentioned to Jon's friend Mallory that he has "a passion for God and wants it to show at work" - THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU DO! I can't believe I ever liked him!

I said hi to Julie S., Ivan, Emily, Sam, Quan, Gino, Kevin, and Caleb after meeting Jon's other friend Eric (from Jacob's Well) / Angel / Mallory. Then I talked to Stanley about my 90% whiskey, his band, Peter Gabriel, the CODEX, weird acoustic dubstep, and the whiskey. I updated both Jesse and Jon's friend Rebecca about my life recently, and talked about the summer / no editing for Holly / not doing well with change / all this unknown stuff possibly impacting people's recovery (Rebecca said that my point was a very good one which she hadn't thought about before), Jacob's Well needing $50,000 and already raising $42,000 in two weeks / all my nephews loving me ("You have to stay longer! Stay all night!") / Ontario hydro bills. One guy in a Youtube / NPR video even had a traffic cone inside his saxophone, haha! Eric and I left early (after I paid $10 and he made a comment about my chips), and I got home at 9:05.

Then I noticed that Chinese Eric had called me at 5:45, so I called him back at 10. He had called me by accident, but he wanted to see if I was up for seeing a Blue Jays-Mariners game this weekend. I thought he meant a literal road trip, but thank goodness he didn't. He says it's been eight months (really six or so) since we hung out here; he's been busy and apparently had a problem with his Hotmail account, but didn't really specify what. (but did say that he had 3500 emails to sort through... JUST DELETE THEM!) We also talked about heat, a sauna, the 162-game MLB schedule, and catching up later. Hopefully, I don't have to do anything else after next Sunday for quite a while! DRAINING!

Since Steph was in town for some weird RCMP reason and we obviously had a family dinner at Wo's for this, it was COFFEE TIME for me at 3:45 before I left at 4:30! I STILL GOT THERE EARLIER THAN EVERYONE ELSE! (despite trying to book it up the stairs at Brighouse Station AND accidentally getting off two stops before I should have on the 3 bus - VERY LONG BLOCKS OF WALKING!) Luckily, Steph / Lisa / Fraser came in five minutes later. Of course I got a hug and kiss from him! We had green beans with pork, beef and broccoli, Chinese fried chicken, Shanghai noodles, sweet and sour pork (Nephew #3 LOVED the pineapples!), rice, corn soup, and yee mein with mushrooms for dinner. Ayler asked about the numbers on the Washington-Pittsburgh game, so I at least told him WHY they were counting down, although Steph added that they count UP in international hockey.

He also made an L and E with various chopsticks, while Hiero wanted to say things reversed or backwards. Fraser just hadn't had enough sleep because he hadn't slept on the plane this afternoon, but that was fine. Ayler asked me how old I was, said I should take off my hat and glasses (not now!), and wanted to come over. Haha, maybe. "Guung Guung" vs. "Yeh-Yeh" blew his mind, haha. "Why do you say Guung-Guung? You should say Yeh-Yeh!" Later, he asked why I said 'excuse me" when I left the bathroom as they were coming in. He was definitely ready to go before others were done! Mom and Dad gave me a ride home, so I got home at 6:55 at least.

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: A Rose and Robin solid chocolate 200g Easter bunny, a pair of pink and dark grey socks, eight double rolls of Royale toilet paper, two ceramic microwaveable plates, a box of Annie's organic macaroni and cheese, a travel mug, two copies of OUR DAILY BREAD covering March to August 2017 (which is honestly NOT going to make me a churchgoing person again), and a one-day pillbox which covers morning / noon / night pills.

MONTHLY BUBBLE TEA TALLY, SEPTEMBER 2012 (1)

mango @ Copa Café (Saturday, Sept. 8) [free, thanks to Uncle Michael and Aunt Leslie!]


Before I called Chinese Eric tonight, I decided to see if I could get my YM working for Trillian. Apparently, my password was wrong, which is bullshit. I perforce reset it after Googling instructions, and it seems to be working. At least, I'm not disconnected after only half a second. This works, even though I never really use the service for anything these days. You never know what randomness may come forth, though! :P

When I called at 9:15, I got the fax machine screech right after Eric answered. He decided to call me back, which works for both our poor sets of ears! We discussed Grandma, Chinese New Year, the Mid-Autumn Festival tomorrow, the "older brother / sister ... UNCLE / AUNTIE" stages of life, mooncake, engrossing reading on the INTERESTING psychology differences between an only child and one with siblings (Nate would know more!), siblings' / classmates' personalities being different, our weeks, Portland, and the beer allowance. Conversed about YOU CAN'T DO THAT ON TELEVISION (Bart the cook was weirdly creepy, he says!) / green slime ingredients, YTV, SAVED BY THE BELL, SQUARE ONE, Halloween / Trick-or-Treating / things like Kids Night being safer (the Awana crew makes it fun for the kids!), the Copa Café, Scientology, Tom Cruise and finding a new wife, Thanksgiving dinner, weird news, the BC Lions not quite coming back from a 19-1 deficit against the Saskatchewan Roughriders (final score - while talking to me to kill time - was 27-20), dating not being easy, Dylan, BS being a "small group," the evolution of cellphones, and more.

He told me to tell white Eric "thank you for making me look up the word which I was supposed to use last time!" Apparently - and I never noticed this - he was going to say "bashful," but added "-ful" to the end of "brash," thinking it would be okay. I'm sure he's learned his lesson, but I know that adjectives and similar words can confuse him, so it's all good! Of course, I will pass on the message! I complained about everything changing their online interface lately (blogging sites like Blogger!), and he says that he has to guide his mom through Hotmail changes every six months or so! I'm not surprised that it happens, especially since MY mom complains that the Facebook "share" button is gone from her iPhone... I'm more inclined to believe Steph, who says it isn't. We know Mom might be losing it, after all. Eric and I ended this conversation at about 10:40, saying that it was nice to talk to the other - SEE? This is what I needed!
