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!

Eric gave me a ride to Jeremy's, so I left at 6:30 with the Western Family Peanut Butter Cups and Chocolate ice cream for Christon and Jeremy's Sunday dinner / birthday dinner, plus the guys' birthday cards. We talked about our weeks, hockey games / practice, my evident cold, my stuck bedroom window, and Let's Play videos on Youtube. When we got there, we surprisingly saw ERIC HO! He tentatively verbally said yes to the 7th, then we all went to Jeremy's apartment together. When we got in, some girl was expounding on her food ingredients.

I saw Christon, Jeremy, Fred (!), Jesse, Patricia, Jon, Sheena, Geoffrey, and Randal, along with two girls I didn't know. I talked to a bunch of people: this year's church hockey pool, Acer / Raymond / Jeremy Y. / Sam / Mark in the hockey pool, auto-drafting, NaNoWriMo, writing, character perspective, Bible Study Fellowship / BSF, casserole, eating insects and tarantulas and woodworms for protein, really spicy food, quinoa / fried chicken (both not for me), kale chips, and more. No, Chinese Eric, I did not want the gravy or pop! Haha! Then I asked Jeremy whether he'd gotten my email about the MEGA SUSHI get-together: he had, when it was over! His email has been screwed up lately, which can be a problem!

I also told Christon in typical (loud) NG fashion what a douche really was - Jeremy remembered that conversation! Hey, I serve to educate where I can! No, you should not use actual douches because the vagina is self-cleaning! I do remember thinking, "What the hell are you guys discussing while I'm in the bathroom?!" hahaha. Later, Eric M. was absorbed in the church hockey pool draft while talking to Eric H. about stuff, so I had success with something else, but that quiet toilet was low-flow! At least people had the ice cream, but I'm not sure about the carrot cake someone brought. Whatever, at least people had MY item!

I also asked Jeremy (for Jimmy) what good record stores there were in Vancouver: Neptune on Main, Zulu Records on 4th (that's still around?!), and Red Cat Records which is also on Main. We finally got out of there at 10:05, and Eric unstuck my bedroom window and figured out my WD-40 at 10:30 or so. Phew! Then Shiv dragged me into Discord chat about a bunch of stuff, which was fine too.

After COFFEE TIME, Tryanna from Pathways picked me up at 12:30 today so we could do some food shopping, but I'm fairly sure I lost my voice at some point overnight. We talked about Croatia, her smoking, Pho, tripe, bubble tea, and more. I got bananas, two birthday cards for Jeremy (beer!) and Christon, on-sale Paldo spicy cheese noodles, Dove lemon shampoo, Dove lemon conditioner, Dove hydration conditioner to go with the GLISS shampoo, on-sale store brand Western Family echinacea, Vedan spicy mushroom and cuttlefish noodles, Nissin sesame oil noodles, on-sale Paldo garlic Namja Ramen, on-sale October Fifth Bakery lotus red bean mooncake.

Also got on-sale Chunky Soup (Beef / Vegetable Beef / Chicken Noodle Soup x2 / Clam Chowder), on-sale original Laksa La Mian noodles, NEW limited-edition Doritos Sonic Sour Cream chips, on-sale store brand Western Family white vinegar, Olivina margarine with olive oil, three cans of Fat Choy straw mushrooms, an on-sale Hungry Man microwaveable turkey dinner / a Swanson's turkey pot pie for Thanksgiving weekend, an on-sale Pepsi bottle for attempted toilet cleaning purposes, on-sale Earth's Own almond milk, and on-sale Lipton tomato garden vegetable soup. Tryanna wanted to know if we could have coffee afterwards since they apparently have a budget for that, but I wanted to get my frozen stuff home and focus on resting my voice instead. Maybe if my voice was 100% today! At least she said that she wanted to help me more often if Barry couldn't!

COFFEE TIME! Christon sent me an Evite to a potluck-style Sunday birthday dinner for him and Jeremy, which I automatically RSVPed to without checking the date. Now I have, and it's October 1 - no hockey conflicts! Maybe I'll just pick up a cake from Buy-Low for the Gwei-Loh right before dinner. The Canucks had Pre-Season Game #4 against the Kings today in SHANGHAI at 4:30 AM, and lost 5-2.

I called Mega Sushi for a reservation for Sunday at 7 (but they won't guarantee the table if I'm ten minutes late - which is why I'm not bothering to change the time of the FB event since people will be late anyway!), then called Chrystal at work to confirm Sunday's dinner. I paid my Shaw bill online.

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.

Last night, Jon said that I was welcome to come over for lunch, and that physio was at 2:15. Sounded good to me, as I could get my Compass Card back that way, as well as spend more time with the kids! Time to put the thing in my wallet instead of my pocket while I'm out of the house! I got to the house early, but at least I could spend some quiet time to chill. When Jon and the boys got back from an appointment, we had chicken and tofu tacos for lunch before going to physio. The boys had fun making up bus stops (Steveston and Portland / Seattle / Surrey?!), and imitating the "BEEP BEEP BEEP" of the wheelchair ramps around here! Jon asked me how white Eric was; you see him more often than I do! Apparently, someone has set up a birthday dinner for him at Jeremy's on Sunday, but I haven't gotten any emails about it. I guess he's pretty busy! Later, Jon asked if Chinese Eric had any friends; I have no idea since even HE had to work on his own birthday!

We talked about Jeremy and his going down to Corvallis (Oregon) to see the solar eclipse with Christon and white Eric last week, my emailing Kevin some birthday wishes, whether they'd sent Fraser anything for his birthday ("oops"), my doing some dishes after a dinner of corn chowder and bread, Penny the speech therapist, Beck / Weird Al making me think of Jeremy, the Dead Kennedys, zone strategies, and September scheduling. When I got home at 7:45 on a 407, I finally registered the Compass Card online! Jimmy had messaged me this morning, but I'd ignored it in favor of doing my own thing, especially because of last night's lyrics debacle which HE could have easily prevented. Tommy's just messaged me as well, but I'll ignore that for certain.

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!

Eric M. called at 10:50 to say he'd be here ten minutes later to help me with my inadvertently unplugged speakers. He found some black wire with a green plug somewhere in back of my computer tower, which had been the problem. Then he plugged some things into the back of the computer tower, fixed the volume and microphone, and commented on my index cards and the dust. While he was there, I asked (knowing the answer) whether he was going to that Jacob's Well dinner at Jeremy's, then asked for a ride back. He wondered if I didn't also want a ride there: sure, as long as he wasn't doing anything beforehand! Then he cued up a numbers Youtube video, which Ayler would probably like if only he were allowed to watch Youtube. He left at 11:10 after I thanked him, which is fine. I'm glad to have sound / audio back!

Steph and Fraser called me at about 1:10 PM today, which was at least a fine surprise. Fraser said that he was eating apples and crackers, and could answer "yeah" when prompted to answer my various simple questions about whether he liked the zoo. I said that I would hopefully be having dinner with Chrystal at some point, would go to Jeremy's for that Jacob's Well fundraiser, mentioned that I'd seen a PEPPA THE PIG book at London Drugs (they have a whole set), said that Hiero needs to eat more protein (1.5 tiny mandarin oranges is not really a proper dinner...), said that Ayler now understands the concept of a square root! Steph said that Sandy still had her food truck breakfast business, mentioned that Fraser could definitely go in the pool with help and supervision later in the year (I can see the older kids not paying attention to him!), says that Fraser likes watching the older kids to observe what they do, and had to go when Fraser wondered why Lisa was in the washroom after getting home. At least Fraser seems to be settled in now at his new (smaller) daycare!

I tried calling Chinese Eric because I thought he'd called me in the morning, but I guess not! Also heard COPYRIGHT on the radio for the first time in a LONG time, then learned that GOB is from Langley - I didn't know that for some reason! Then he called me while I was in the middle of making spicy beef noodles, which is always okay. *grin* I updated him on most of the stuff which I'd already said in the email, and got away with using the words "dumb fuck" to describe someone, haha. He agreed that I should block Randal after hearing what had happened. Like he and others have said: if the dumb fuck had been nicer, I'd have respected his wishes! I assumed Eric doesn't really care about the notifications; I asked, and he didn't say anything, so this is good. Talked about the advances in technology these days - texting at the dinner table for teens ("gotta update my Facebook status!") is normal, we guess. If you text and drive at the same time, you could cause an accident and kill yourself and others! He also gave me the new cellphone number: only eight digits off!

I figured the cooler weather would be better for his health - not as much heat! - but he still has to bring a jacket to guard against sudden chills. Makes sense to me! Of course, we still think and wish it to be summer, but it is getting colder! I told him that it was cold when we went to see the baby the other day, too. He asked about my weekend plans (his consist of going to visit his grandma), so I told him about the Christon / Jeremy birthday dinner. Yes, he remembered that I'd told him about it already (which is fine), and wanted me to wish them a happy birthday for him. OF COURSE! Seemed he and his mom had just gotten in from grocery shopping, and she noticed my call - Auntie is nice, for sure. Eric asked if I'd had lunch yet: almost! His dad needs to do some work, so has to do a different kind of shopping with him later in the afternoon; that's how it should be, as long as he's not too exhausted later. Told him about how most of the cold medicine stuff was on sale at the store, so of course he reminded me to stock up: already done yesterday, and not in the EXTREME COUPONING sort of way, either! (hahaha) Since his mom was calling him to lunch, I said I'd talk to him next week for sure! Yes, it was nice talking to each other, as usual. :D

Mom and Dad FINALLY picked me up nearer to noon, and gave me some cooked chicken / cooked turkey / peanut Glossettes / Chinese egg cake snacks / a mooncake / organic carrots / Skyflakes crackers. Luckily, I could put everything in the freezer or fridge or on the table before I left yet again. Met up with Steph and Lisa at Dogwood, where we have to think of Grandma as a baby now. We helped her drink juice / milk / soup, wipe her mouth, and engage her in this world before she fell asleep in the middle of eating! (just like a real baby would) At least she recognized us even if she won't talk much (side effect of the tumor?), and remembers Uncle Michael. Grandma asked us several times whether we wanted to eat or were hungry - nope! I was evil, and enabled Lisa's love of chocolate by giving her the Halloween-themed Ziploc bag of Coffin Crisp / Ghostly Kit Kat / ScAeros / Scaries; Steph said I was bad, hahaha.

We went to the Copa Café for lunch, where Mom found out that the "free milk tea" coupons she got last time were only for dinner; I'll throw mine out, although I really wasn't planning on using them anyhow. Not sure whether Chinese Eric has used his; tried calling him the other day with no answer other than the fax machine screech, but that's perfectly fine! We'll get together one of these days. (and I need that...) Talked about Havarti's size / puppy school, Thanksgiving dinner of duck and turkey being delayed one week because of Alberta, Portland / Seattle, Mom's gay friends Tom and Tom (Steph also thought they were from San Francisco - they're apparently from Minnesota!), the George Massey tunnel / Port Mann bridge, care aspects like tearaway clothing, Christon and Jeremy's birthday dinner next weekend (THANKSGIVING is why they're not having it on Sunday?!), Jon's annual birthday dinner extravaganza, how Lisa isn't supposed to have gum (but took a piece anyway), dinner invites, and more. Bugged Steph with sitting in the middle, leg slaps, "lawyer" talk, and general NG stuff. Got home at 2:15 to hopefully relax a bit before tonight. Also formulated a reply to Deb's email which wouldn't be full of inappropriate words for that religious woman, hahahaha.

Humans over the age of 35 lose about 7000 brain cells each day. (that explains my ditziness!)

Dammit, I should have used a billion Strength Seeds before fighting Dogma and Zozogel in DRAGON QUEST VI - too late now unless I restart (so close to the end!) OR somehow figure out how to use ZST files! (I swear I knew this before when I was playing CHRONO TRIGGER last year...) Never mind, then. Doesn't really matter!

Mom and Dad were LATE picking me up this morning, and I was surprised that Mom was driving. Apparently, Dad was sick and under the influence of Neo-Citran which he didn't want to take. HA HA! We discussed Havarti's growth, dropping Jon off at Tom Lee, clothing, Nerds, chocolate, and other things which I didn't really pay attention to. Went to see Grandma briefly, and I gave her half a mini-banana... the other half looked brown, so I threw that out. I ate another mini-banana, and in the time it took for me to throw the peel in the trash, she'd finished her apple juice! Grandma also recognized me, and had a rounder face than usual... apparently, this is a medical side effect. She said that Alan had visited her earlier, which is good. Maybe she has a lot of repetition! At least she fed herself some soup.

We were off to Trinity church on 49th a bit early, but at least it was close by! Congratulated Myles in person, saw Peter and Holly, noticed Harmony with a crying Ayler (she had to bounce him all the time - maybe she missed the ceremony!), and saw Steph talking to her! Also said hi to Dorcas, who keeps forgetting our family connection to Myles, hahaha. We wondered which wedding photo category we'd fit into: probably #8, which was the groom's extended family. The ceremony was pretty traditional, right down to the vows. Brittney and her sister look REALLY alike!

Saw a bunch of people whom I haven't seen since Harmony's bridal shower and wedding back in 2009, like Peter's parents! Dropped the ugfart off at Tom Lee while discussing Thanksgiving, teaching, making money, FAT DRAGON, Portland, Pho Thai Son and the supermarket next to it BURNING DOWN (Jeremy probably saw the remains this morning!), and more. At least I got to go home after Mom unsuccessfully looked for parking at the insanely busy Yaohan Centre! I didn't want to go for smoked chicken at their house, since I'm having noodles and downtime here!
