Troy unfriended me from Facebook again - okay, then!


From Julie: Jaszmyne?! BAD SPELLING! Just pick S or Z, not both at once! Makes it harder to spell, really.




From Julie: D'Quion?! It is pronounced DAY-QUAN for some reason. I would have gone with DE-KEON or something.




From Julie: Desirae?! What was wrong with Desiree?! BAD SPELLING!




From Julie: Tee is Brandi's best friend?!




From Vanessa: Dave Assman wants a personalized license plate?!

Brian picked me up at about 9 last night from the hospital's main entrance, but I had to take a gigantic huge detour because the construction had blocked off the sidewalks right by my place AGAIN! (going through the parking lot and then find the sidewalk by the pharmacy and then cross THREE crosswalks to get to the hospital) He had joked that it would be like Little Iraq trying to get to my place, and this was about right. The chill get-together was for Paulo's 27th birthday, so of course I was going to come out and meet him. Things were fine until we tried finding Fremlin, but I eventually called Holly (who doesn't have a buzzer system or an elevator in her apartment building?!) when Brian eventually found it. She said that she was going to throw her keys down to us, probably because she was tired of going up and down the stairs for everyone else!

When Brian finally figured out the front door lock (the one in my building is recalcitrant as well), we went upstairs to Holly's suite. We met Paulo, and said hi to Holly and Darryl. Talked about bartending, gin and tonic, red wine, beers, smoking (always someone's choice), travel (Jordan and Egypt and Australia), the leftover pizza with pepperoni and sausage, online people in the other Discord server, Gastown, awful dates, hyphenated names, feminism, the 407, friends being in abusive relationships, weird names like Jesus Condom, the closed sidewalks around my place, (looking for) work, Long Island Iced Teas, (video) interviews, San Francisco, Montreal, fudge Oreos, and my Korean BBQ Kettle chips. Of course I let Holly keep them! Turns out that Paulo lives two minutes from me, which is always good just in case. I let Brian drop me off at Birchwood instead of Dogwood, but I was still with it enough to figure out where I was since things looked different. Got in at midnight, which is fine. Good times with FREEDOM!


From Dragons: Luck of the Irish dragon!




From Brad Jansen: A flying red dragon!




From Julie M. and Realm of the Witch: If you're going to make me out to be something I'm not, it'd be cool if you'd make me a dragon. Thanks.




From Instagram and Kramer's Discord server: Smartmouth Beer released a Lucky Charms-flavored beer on March 2 for St. Patrick's Day 2019?!

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
Might go to Holly's tonight. We'll see!


From Julie: Bron Holland?!




On September 19, 2015, I went to the Pint to meet Aaron / Kathy / Sabrina / Julian for a belated / early birthday celebration. I passed by the Prado Café on my way there, and thought of Janina for obvious reasons. Eventually, she messaged them on Facebook, and they sent her a mug for free!

From Julie M. and Snapchat: Now that's a crock of... Dehydrated Cow Manure!




From Candy: A poop emoji Beanie Baby toy with an Elvis pompadour?!




My most-liked Youtube comment has 195 thumbs-up? It was about my then-upcoming eye cataract surgery on January 10. Awesome! Matthew Santoro's The Most CHILLING Confessions on Record, uploaded on January 9, 2019.

The Canucks played the Ducks at 7:30 tonight, and lost 1-0... Anaheim ended up winning their first home game in TWO MONTHS, with a rookie goalie and a new coach!


From the r/Canucks Discord server: Kaapo Kakko?! FUN! It is his birthday today, too - what a coincidence!

glowing_dragon: (LJ Drama)
I called Barry at 8:50 to let him know about the dead mouse. When he called me back at 11 to say that he would be here in a couple of minutes, I checked the corner with the TV since I'd heard noise there as well last night. Yup, there was another dead mouse, this one in a glue trap. Good thing I checked, since Barry was here at 11:10 to remove them!

Steph said that Fraser loves the assorted emoji stickers. "Look, Mama, a poo!"


He loves all the assorted options!




"Look, a poo!"




Fraser and his mail bonanza of stickers! :D




From Reddit on Nov. 26, 2018: No, RupertOffy, liking someone's profile photo on Facebook is NOT even vaguely political, and there's no such thing as being used as a social weapon at school... if you mean "bullying," say so like normal people do!

glowing_dragon: (Crazy-Eyed Bear)
After COFFEE TIME, Vanessa and baby Cassidy picked me up at 11:30 so we could hang out before my eye cataract surgery on Thursday. We went to the Lansdowne Mall food court to try the good dumplings / SLB / wonton at R&H House, and bubble tea at Fresh Elements. Then we walked around T&T to get Paterson's Shortbread (400 grams at $6 for Deb and Dylan), GOLDEN DRAGON SUSHI (for me), pomelos, hot and sour soup, more food, and some veggies. I didn't mind the walking around!

We talked about Jason saying some questionable things, Bev, Hester, Teunis, Krista, showing bamboo shoots to the baby (who didn't like touching it), baby sign language, the baby pointing at things and liking my red bling sweater, shower caps, and more. I did manage to get a blue $4 GOODY shower cap at the pharmacy next door when she drove me home at 2:25, so all is well on that front. It was good to see her for sure!


EDIT AT 10 PM: I went out again in the freezing weather at 8:50 on a 401 to get my Wednesday evening pre-surgery nourishment since I somehow have to not eat anything after midnight on Thursday. Thank goodness that the Stouffer's Sauté Sensations microwaveable meals were on sale for $5 each! I got Chicken Alfredo and Homestyle Beef Pot Roast, plus a NEW Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo chocolate bar! Damn self-checkout not working well... at least I got home at 9:35 on a 407 so I could finally finish the last two eyedrops doses of four!


Paterson's Scottish Shortbread Shapes: 400 grams in a box!




Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo chocolate bar!




Golden Dragon sushi roll - yummy!




From Mario Day: Mario is being interrogated at the police station. A cop says, "... said he was trying to save a princess... and that he was being chased by turtles. That's when we checked the glove box and found the mushrooms. Then it all made sense." OH MAN! It was dated January 7, 2014... WHAT A DATE COINCIDENCE AND ANNIVERSARY!

glowing_dragon: (French Toast)
There was a fire alarm at about 1 PM, so I threw away fuzzy socks with holes in them, and got proper woolly socks / a thin toque / a winter coat because I thought it was going to be a false fire alarm as usual. Nope, it was actually the first REAL fire scare since I've lived here in 2000! Some idiot neighbor left a plastic baby bottle on the stove, went out at 11, and stuff started burning at 11:30 or so. WHY WOULD YOU NOT CHECK TO SEE THAT THE STOVE IS OFF BEFORE GOING OUT FOR THE DAY?!

Firemen and police and standing around outside in the cold for three hours before we were allowed back in at 3:55 after the fan and air quality... thank goodness that I am okay, as well as my stuff. I guess I should get that Square One insurance! At least it wasn't six hours, but still... the neighbor got back and saw the aftermath including a busted-out balcony, so I hope she learns!


From This is True, on September 24, 2018: Hitler Alba Sanchez, Lennin Vladimir Rodriguez Valverde, and Osama Vinladen?!

Yesterday, I got banned from a names Facebook group because I "misgendeered" the newest admin. Not my fault that her name is ASH and she has a female in her display picture; if she wants random people to think that she's a male, that is very misleading! Then I got into it with Natalie (chibi_blackie / missblack / andinclosing), who thinks she "won" by "dragging" / roasting me. Nope! I deleted her comments because she was being condescending and talking down to me. It's almost like she doesn't realize that we're from different generations! I had to block her once she made a proud status about how I was deleting her comments because they made me look bad. Very funny, ha ha ha. At least I don't use slang that's not from my generation, and Lena / Mike T. / Vanessa / Julie supported me!

glowing_dragon: (Default)



"You Enhance Lives"




You're the type of person who likes to work quietly behind the scenes. Very few people notice all that you do.
You love to help, but you aren't looking for credit. You know that you do a lot simply being there for others.

You are steady, dependable, and loyal. You aren't just a rock, though - you also have a good spark that lights up the world.
You bring lightness and depth, optimism, and realism to others' lives. You are often what is missing.










"You Are Birdie"




You are as wise as they come. You have a good deal of life experience, and you've definitely learned from it.
You may be down to earth, but you have a wild past that few know about. And you're happy to keep it that way.

You have a lot of foresight, but you don't go around making predictions. You just let things unfold.
You are steady and encouraging. You are always rooting your friends on from the sidelines.







I got this error message last night: "You have specified a date in the future." No, I haven't. FACEBOOK, GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER!

glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)



"You Are William"




You are a smart and contemplative person. You have always been ahead of your time.
You are very curious about the world and enjoy the role of observer. When it comes to many subjects, you definitely know your stuff.

You are dedicated and persistent. You may not be the most aggressive person, but you are assertive in your own way.
You find most other people fascinating. You are not one to intervene much in others' lives, but you will stand up for what is right.










"You Are Waffle Fries"




You are a bit of a rebel and even a lone wolf. You are extremely resistant to peer pressure.
You aren't one to follow the crowd, and you may even run in the opposite direction. You like the solitude of the road less traveled.

You can be a bit of a cynic at times, but you are never too pessimistic. You have a hearty appetite for all of life's experiences, including food.
You like your waffles a little different, and won't just stop at waffle fries. Falafel waffle, anyone?

"You Are a Heath Blizzard"




You are a unique person who does your own thing in life. You are always inspired and thinking up new plans.
You can be a bit of a geek, and you wouldn't have it any other way. You like delving deep into a subject.

You tend to have some unusual preferences, but it's only because you take in so much of the world. You sample as much as you can.
You crave the comfort of the things and people you like best. However, you are always open to trying something new for a change.

"You Are Balanced"




You're the type who likes everything in moderation, and you're especially good at balancing out life's extremes.
You are a bit of a novelty seeker, and you like to have a really good mix of things in your life. There is always room for something or someone new.

You meld well with many different types of people, and you can bridge the gap in groups where members have little in common.
You don't take anything in life too personally and seriously. If you have a bad day or week, you know things will eventually even out.







From Reddit on July 27, 2017: Stop whining, StripedPinkBoxers. "The phrase "girl crush" upholds heteronormativity in such an unnecessary way!" I personally don't think so. I'm cool if you're LGBT, but you have to realize that heterosexuality (and monogamy) is the assumed default for society! In the past, she's even tried challenging me on what I'd think if Nephew #4 was in fact a girl. Nice try, but I'd treat a nephew and a niece the same basic way! I'm also definitely not a fan of people abbreviating "THOUGH" as "tho." Also, LegsForAboutAnHour is a prostitute who got raped.

"You Are a Go-Getter"




You are a very ambitious person, and you're constantly adding to your list of goals and dreams.
While you dream big, you never let that satisfy you. You like to get out there and make sure your dreams come true.

You don't lose sight of your larger purpose in life, and you keep working even when things get tough.
Your attitude is almost like magic. When every door closes, you keep knocking until a new one opens.







From Reddit on June 18, 2017: I automatically lose respect for people who use the word "normative" when "normal" would do, but this special snowflake seems to think that "monogonormative" is a real word AND thinks that everyone should be cool with a non-monogamous lifestyle. You can DEFINITELY be cheated on if you're poly!

From Candy: The (Hard Knock) Life of a Facebook Photo! Brought to you by Pixable!


How did you take the picture? With a film camera: What a hipster. Ha! Now you have to get it developed! Don't get it digital: You can't tag people on prints! Get it digital: It's a 21st century thing. Ask somebody about it! LAPTOP!

How did you take the photo: With a digital camera: Do you even know where your cable is? Didn't find it yet. #FAIL

Do you even know where your cable is? FOUND IT! LAPTOP! Does the picture need to be edited? YES! Use (and abuse) the iPhoto enhance feature. Vignette Effect it too, if you're fancy like that.

Does the picture need to be edited? NO. Sure?

Does the picture need to be edited? Don't know how. (?) :/ Haha, guess you're stuck with red-eye!

How did you take the picture? With a phone! Did you hipstamatic / Instagram it? YES! Revel in how original and artistic you are. NO.

How did you take the picture: With an iPad. Do you realize how RIDICULOUS you look? YES! NO. Either way, you don't care, because you know everyone is jealous you have an iPad 2.

Upload Photos to Facebook! Insert a funny / witty caption and tag everybody: yourself and friends! The self-tagging analysis process: You look AWESOME. PROFILE PIC! You look okay. Tag yourself. You look TERRIBLE. DELETE!

Upload Photos to Facebook! The friend-tagging analysis process: They look better than you! Don't tag anyone. You all look okay, or they look TERRIBLE: Tag everyone!

Get likes!

Get a notification saying someone profiled your picture, Realize he or she cropped you out. Tag your hand as evidence of your presence. Consider defriending him or her... leave a snarky comment instead.

Get a notification saying someone profiled your picture. You're in it! LIKE it!

Immediately, half the people untag themselves. (seriously, are they ever not on Facebook?)

Get comments: "Ew! Gross! Take this down. NOW!" Take it down. :( End up with an album half the size you started with. Leave it anyway. Lose a friend, but enjoy everyone else's appreciation!

Get comments: "Awesome pic!" Pat yourself on the back...

And have the picture never be seen again... until one day, someone finds it on a Facebook stalking spree.
