Facebook was down ALL DAY - I thought it was just me, but NOPE! Luckily, it came back for me just in time for the hockey game! The Canucks played the Rangers at 7 tonight, and won 4-1! Tyler Mott scored two goals 11 seconds apart, the game had back-to-back five-minute major penalties, and we had MORE injuries!


From the Daily Mail: Ugley is in Essex, England?! It's commonly pronounced as USLEY.

Yesterday, I called Chinese Eric to see if he could give me a ride to Jeremy's or back home. He called me back on his lunch break (at 1:20 BEFORE I left to see Rachel), and he was planning to take transit to work at the Art Gallery and then go straight to Jeremy's. I hoped Kevin could drive me to Broadway Station again since white Eric can't make it because of his hockey commitments! I had to leave really early for Jeremy's place because I had to walk to Brighouse station - thanks, endless sewer upgrades and construction! Luckily, I found an in-service bus stop at Alderbridge, so I killed time at Shoppers, buying Korean BBQ Kettle Chips x3 and some Nair. FUCKING JIMMY! Got to Dude Chilling Park at 6:10, which was slightly early. Kingsgate Mall was closing, too.

I met up with Jeremy (so we could all see his new flooring / baseboards and test some marbles on it), Christon, Kevin, Chinese Eric, and Randal. Christon made some pulled pork, chicken and coleslaw. We had my Indomie Mi Goreng chips / various beers (like the cocoa / vanilla Winter Ale) / salsa / Que Pasa chips, called Eric Ho to see where he was, figured out the long wifi password (which Jeremy didn't think much of at first - but then realized he'd never seen me with a smartphone before), discussed my eye surgeries and Jeremy's nose surgery / Huawei / the Rugby Sevens / Uniqlo / Muji / Daiso / real estate / wedding planning / people with 4400 to 5000 Facebook friends, the Lucky Charms Saturday Morning beer for St. Patrick's Day, and waited for Jon to get there even later. I wanted to go home at 10, but nope - I had to wait for 45 more minutes, despite Chinese Eric wanting to head home right after the game ended at 9:30!

Jeremy loved the blurb for the Lucky Charms beer and laughed at it, at least! Kevin did indeed drive me to Broadway Station, while Jon and Chinese Eric got rides back home from Randal. Yeah, that wasn't too bad. I ended up getting home at around midnight on a 401 (passing up a 407 at Brighouse), and was surprised that I was still somewhat awake, since I'd gone to bed at 9:45 yesterday. I did make myself some hot chocolate to warm up from the cold weather. The Canucks played the Knights at 7 tonight, and lost 6-2. Not good if it was 5-1 at the end of the first... 3-0 after the first twelve minutes!


DUDE CHILLING PARK! No longer Guelph Park!

The Canucks played Arizona at 7 tonight, and lost 3-2 in overtime.

Heard from Jana in CANUCK NATION that RACIST Stuart has three kinds of cancer (liver / colon / something else) and is currently in Langley hospice - karma works in good ways! I went out at 2:30 on a 401 for shopping purposes. Went to London Drugs for a replacement toothbrush since I had to throw one in the garbage yesterday morning because I couldn't rinse it (NO WATER!), a yellow LifeCandy shower pouf, a big plain yellow envelope, and NEW Vaseline For Men lotion. Also mailed birthday / Valentine's cards and stickers to Fraser and Steph before getting home at 3:10 on a 407.

The day started early because we all went to church - a poppyseed bagel for breakfast suited me fine. No more MINECRAFT or HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON from last night, that's for sure! It was cold and foggy this morning, but least it wasn't snowy or rainy! I snuck into the church sanctuary and sat in the very last row when we got to VCEFC via the underground parking lot. Auntie Catherine saw me on my way in because she was one of the ushers, so had to hug me hello. I talked to Pastor Dan, Sharon, Emily L., Ivan W., Billy, Stella, Elenor's sister Janet, Helen C., Benedict, and others about my eye cataract surgery recovery progress while I grabbed a spare mug from the kitchen for some coffee.

Later, we went to Swiss Chalet for Elysse's fifth birthday: reading, making mistakes, being angry, chocolate milk, quarter of a rotisserie chicken and garlic shrimp / popcorn shrimp, water, embarrassing (blowjob) positions, Dylan's church meetings, Swiss Chalet coupons, chicken tenders, fries, yummy dipping sauce, what nephews were, Costco / IKEA / Toys R Us at Lansdowne, and dropping Dylan off at church. After about half an hour at home, everyone went to a crowded Costco / IKEA / Toys R Us. No, the shopping carts weren't jungle gyms, Declan! Dylan's parents returned some stuff and we talked about safety, surgery, Deb's patients, astigmatism, DanActive yogurt, fruit, budgeting, calling people by their real names, whining, and Elysse's new HATCHIMAL for $70 at Lansdowne.

The Canucks played the Panthers at 4 today, and won 5-1. Dylan's dad made lamb steak, gai lan, and ribs for Elysse's birthday dinner, and we had chocolate cupcakes with raspberry frosting and HELLO KITTY decorations as dessert. When I thanked him for it, Declan asked why I called his grandpa "Uncle." Well, he looks like he's the same age as my dad's friends and definitely NOT my peer, so there you go! Apparently, Dylan's mom found the icing too sweet, so she gave hers to me instead. Elysse wanted to lie down on her stool to eat the long spaghetti noodles, but that's NOT A GOOD IDEA! Dylan got home in time for his parents to make the drive back to Langley, but I was upstairs on mobile trying to be as unobtrusive as possible.


Lucas, Kumatora, Duster, and Boney make it to the Highway rest area in Chapter 5 of MOTHER 3. They stop by the restrooms. This guy tells them, "I heard there's a ramen shop in this area that's so good it always has a huge line in front of it."

After COFFEE TIME, Vanessa and baby Cassidy (with her cool pink sunglasses) picked me up for my BIRTHDAY LUNCH at Pho 37 in Ironwood and Steveston. She apologized for yesterday, but it was still fine by me. We talked about her friends, Tamara, chocolate, sugar, weird people, our parents and siblings(-in-law), "adventurous" pork blood / pork hock / Vietnamese ham / beef / basil / bean sprouts in spicy soup, spring rolls, shrimp salad rolls, padding, buying various things at London Drugs (I opted for on-sale Cool Blue Gatorade x6 - but couldn't find the expiry date of March 16, 2019 on the bottle till just now), blenders, She dropped me off early for my appointment with Rachel at The Caring Place. Rachel actually saw me early, which was surprising, but I also got to be home at 3:25 on a 407, so things worked out that way. I think other things (with Jimmy) are pretty final, but I could be wrong. Still, I want the control...


From Julie: Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered... "Who ties your shoelaces for you?"




Pho 37 is an adventure with this menu!




Happy Pho 37 birthday to me!




Bo Bun Hue at Pho 37: Beef, pork blood, Vietnamese ham, and pork hock in spicy soup with vermicelli noodles!

Vanessa wanted to know if tomorrow works for me since she has to go to Vancouver from Langley anyway - sure, why not? I can take advantage of things like my free My BP offer of Pizza Bread OR Cactus Cuts OR Yam Fries... AND Boston Pizza Pasta Tuesday! Time for a shower before eating dinner!


Edit at 11: She wanted to change the restaurant because there is soy in a lot of things at Boston Pizza. I was okay with that, so Pho 37 at Ironwood in Steveston it is! (the reviews are good)

From Lesley and Meanwhile in Canada: "No! I don't wanna go back to school!" "I know, honey, I know... but you HAVE to..." "WHY?" "Because you're a teacher!"

Vanessa did the considerate thing yesterday and said that she and baby Cassidy couldn't make it to my Felico's birthday plans because of her ferry times from vacation. Of course I understood, and she can take me out for lunch sometime when she figures out some other stuff. Elizabeth can't make it, either, which is fine too.

I left at 5:15 on a 401 to get Arm and Hammer baking soda and peroxide toothpaste, on-sale store brand Ziploc bags x3, NEW on-sale barkTHINS dark chocolate x3 (Pretzel / Pumpkin Seed / Almond all with sea salt), an on-sale Ragusa Noir dark chocolate and hazelnut bar for Eric M. for his birthday, on-sale Reese mini peanut butter cups, purple MARTEX washcloths x2, and a replacement GIBSON owl coffee mug at London Drugs. Then I was home at 6 on a 407, which is just fine by me! Imgur isn't working, so I guess I have to use Photobucket... blah!


Julie M. saw this on CNN once in 2013: "The evidence will CLERALY show I am the shooter"?!

I went out at 3:15 on a 401 to London Drugs since I got my tax refund in my bank account. Mailed an Easter card and assorted stickers to Fraser and Henry, and mailed a birthday card to Vanessa in Langley. I got two small reusable bags and one large reusable bag for Jimmy (all with the 100th Anniversary design and logo), sponges, NEW PopCorners Smokin' Jalapeno with White Cheddar crisps, Dawn dish detergent x2 (lemon and original), L'Oréal Men Expert hair products x3 (glycerin 3 in 1 / taurine and arginine shampoo / ceramide shampoo and conditioner), and NEW Scrub Daddy sponges and scrubbers. Just managed to get the 407 back home at 3:45, too!

Vanessa got her card already, which shouldn't surprise me even if I did mail it on Sunday. The Canucks played Colorado at 7 tonight; the game had to go to overtime, and Vancouver won 4-3! Yuri is also back on Discord, so YAY FOR THAT!

I went out in the rainy weather at 2:10 on a 407 to buy Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa cough medicine (THE BEST!) / more stickers (PJ Masks / rewards!) / ten $2 MARTEX washcloths / on-sale NEW Merci chocolate ($8.88!) / a replacement GIBSON owl coffee mug / on-sale Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup x6 / a bunch of family birthday cards (next year, I'm going to downgrade to regular!) / on-sale GUM toothbrushes x3 / on-sale blue Dawn dish detergent. 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! I told Jon that I could be there tomorrow at 4:45-5, which definitely works with his teaching schedule!

Chrystal emailed me this morning to say that she'll actually be out of town for the next two weeks and would love to meet up with me after getting back on the 20th, so that still totally works for me even if she understandably can't do the 14th! Vanessa came by from Langley before her Richmond appointments so we could exchange stuff. I gave her a Christmas card / Eric Ho's Jersey Milk chocolate bar / Advent calendar so I could get some of her homemade chocolate peanut Eat More bars since she can't have too much sugar these days. She got here at 12:20, and we spent half an hour chatting because I got back in at 12:50. Talked about Jason, his mom, his cousin, amniotic fluid, karma, Jon and Harmony's current living situation, Ayler, the stigma around girls, Krista thinking that everyone is out to get her / ignoring the signs of abuse from her exes Andrew and Ryan (DON'T WAIT AROUND FOR THEM TO CHANGE EVEN IF THEY WANT TO!), autism, a Steveston mail truck not looking out for her, that Eastern Conference hockey chat, Jimmy and his "must not be fatter than me" dealbreaker, (water) weight, January plans, maternity leave, Richmond drivers, my periods, her NOT making any more Thanksgiving dinners for SOME PEOPLE, and it being cold today. Good to catch up at least!


From Reddit on June 25, 2016: "We've been dating for a long time - FOUR MONTHS!" Oh, 19-year-olds... Sarcasam_Is_King can't even spell "sarcasm" correctly!




From Reddit on March 18, 2016: When people use expressions like "you go, girl" to her, WandMirk probably shouldn't take it so personally. She says she's not a girl even if her body doesn't produce most hormones. It says something that I misread her username as WANDA MIRK. Special snowflake right there! Not because of her body, but because of how she reacts to a normal expression.

I got an email from Mike about adding him to my LinkedIn network - NO FUCKING WAY! Then I showered tonight after talking to Vanessa about her pregnancy, Langley dim sum, ha-gow, and such via Facebook messages.

I had a headache today and had to abandon my Tomato Alfredo lunch in favor of a nap at 12. At least I felt better at 3! Then I got email: Jon thinks that there's a family dinner on Monday at their place. Apparently, there's going to be a lunch tomorrow at the lards' place with Steph, Lisa, and Fraser. I can't take that much family time! Gotta figure out when the FOOD STREAM is on Cuya's Twitch first!

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
