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!


Korean BBQ Kettle chips!

I was up at 7:15 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! Then I discovered that my bags of NEW Dutch Gourmet chips (Mozzarella and Jalapeno Cheddar) were expired when I bought them last week (June 12 and June 20), so I at least tried some of both flavors before throwing them out. Then I noticed that my dumplings and other things had melted ice all over them, and decided to write Hester a note before the long weekend (and left a message on Barry's voicemail) - when I got up to her suite, she was actually there, but figuring out laundry tokens for some dude. GOOD TIMING! She read the note, asked what "adjusting" meant (?!), and decided to go with me to my suite right then. While there, she saw the dumplings bag which I'd kept for proof, adjusted the numbers again on BOTH the fridge and freezer, told me not to touch them, said she'd probably be back tomorrow, and was surprised that there was a long weekend coming up at all. Right after she left, Barry called me back to see what was going on. He said to let him know what was up tomorrow, then.


In DRAGON WARRIOR II, the party goes to Midenhall Castle. The vizier tells them, "Thou art now as strong as an ox and twice as good-looking. That is very good." What the heck kind of "compliment" is this?!

While looking around for some stuff earlier today, I found a Christmas-themed envelope with Teunis's name on it, plus a Percy Jackson and Olympians: The Lightning Thief DVD box. I was going to throw those out, but decided to ask Andrew M. if Teunis might actually like it returned to him. I know how I'd feel if someone threw away my stuff, so I had to do that. Apparently, he does want them back, so we'll see how that goes.


Percy Jackson and Olympians: The Lightning Thief DVD box cover!

[livejournal.com profile] lilaznffairy421 and I have decided to see if we can reach the maximum number of comments on a post, which is currently set at 5000. (I guess the previous limit of 60,000-something was way too much.. probably caused the servers to crash, burn, and explode!)

We're not members of [livejournal.com profile] _commentwhores, so no worries there. If you want to help us reach that comment limit on this post, go ahead! (I thought of not allowing anyone else to comment, but that didn't promote a spirit of togetherness)

It will be interesting to see how long this takes, so the post will be dated. Whoever first leaves a comment, please date it. If we ever get to 5000 on the post, date the last one if you remember!

Leave any comments you like on any topic, but remember: I have full veto power, and I can delete anything I choose to. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *evil grin*

By the way: please include a subject line when starting a new thread in the comments section. It makes my job of sifting through emails so much easier. :D


Edit on Wednesday, 2 February 2005 @ 10:50 PM We're done! Yay! :D For Farrah's friends who want to see this for themselves, it's now public. ;)

Edit on Tuesday, 31 May 2011 @ 8:05 PM [livejournal.com profile] matt1993 wants to get this up to the newer limit of 10,000 comments.

This is for [livejournal.com profile] rogermellie, who wanted to know what my loves and passions in life were.

This is also for [livejournal.com profile] p1r4t3_k1ng, who wanted to know what was cool about me. (or not, depending on my outlook) They also have a last name in common: ANDERSON. :D


Here's a short list:

I'm a bit interested in twins (and other multiples; triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets, sextuplets, etc.), babies and kids (I like them to a certain extent, but am a long way from having them right at the moment), reading, humor, true crime, comics.. the list could go on and on.

What I do for fun: reading, going to bookstores and the library, hanging out with friends, eating out with them, keeping in touch with people, listening to music, going to my friends' houses, looking after little kids, sometimes going places by myself, parties at friends' houses, etc.

Foods I like: some Chinese food (hot and sour soup, noodles, curry, wonton soup, etc.), pizza, pasta, chicken, sushi, turkey, Pho noodles, steak, etc.

Music I like: classic rock, some current rock, some pop (no BSB-type stuff for me)... that's about it, though I can stand most other types... even my brother's weird mix tapes of Monster Magnet, Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, and Mercury Rev. Some other groups I like include (but are not limited to): Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Everclear, Matthew Good Band, Our Lady Peace, Led Zeppelin, New Order, the Doors, Big Sugar, Creed, Nickelback, Collective Soul, the Police, etc.

Stuff I like to read: humorous stuff, some (auto-)biographies, Guinness World Records stuff (that Primetime TV show is cool), the Outlander series, Bathroom Readers, true crime, trivia, some fiction (and some non-fiction as well), comic strips, stuff about music... guess it all depends on what I feel like reading!

Any more questions? You can ask me in here if you want.. or email me. (that is, if you even know my current email address.. MWAHAHAHAHA)

Oh, and YES.. if you've heard all those rumors, they're true. I am indeed the birthday queen, and I have amazing birthday prowess. (according to my friends Jason and Keith)


I'm an introvert, so I need my time alone to recharge. I also have a mild form of cerebral palsy, which causes me to limp. I am also on disability because of mild depression.

I like reading, listening to music, watching Youtube videos, and video games. I like humorous stuff, Diana Gabaldon books, Bathroom Readers, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, and am getting into random fantasy novels. (I enjoyed Jack Whyte's UTHER) I also like true crime, trivia, some fiction (and some non-fiction as well), comic strips, stuff about music... guess it all depends on what I feel like reading!

Music: I enjoy video game soundtracks, Children of Bodom, Cradle of Filth, Ministry, GWAR, Our Lady Peace, Matthew Good, classic rock, some current rock, some pop (no BSB-type stuff for me)... no rap or country, though. I also like Monster Magnet, Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, and Mercury Rev. Some other groups I like include (but are not limited to): Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Everclear, Led Zeppelin, New Order, the Doors, Big Sugar, Collective Soul, the Police, etc.

TV shows: I admit to only being a random TV watcher, as the Internet is a vast time-suck. I did enjoy random episodes of SOUTH PARK and KING OF THE HILL. It doesn't matter to me whether you watch TV when I'm around. However, I do like Canucks hockey, and can usually be found listening to the radio or watching TV when a game is on!

Video games: I have played a few of the classic ones only. For some reason, I can't get into contemporary video games. I've played DRAGON WARRIOR 1-4, DRAGON QUEST 5 and 6, EARTHBOUND, the MOTHER series, LUFIA AND THE FORTRESS OF DOOM, and FINAL FANTASY 1 / 2 / 4-6.

Foods I like: some Chinese food (hot and sour soup, noodles, curry, wonton soup, etc.), pizza, pasta, chicken, sushi, turkey, Pho noodles, steak, etc.


I'm looking for a chill, empathetic, understanding, and calm person who is low-maintenance, yet is willing to work on a relationship seriously. I enjoy just hanging around the house once we get to know each other well enough. You should also use correct spelling and grammar in your messages. I prefer text over phone calls, at least initially. If you get to know me, I am a quirky person with her own eccentricities!
