glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
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 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.

The Canucks played the Kings at 7 tonight, and won 4-2! FINALLY, NO EIGHT-GAME LOSING STREAK!


Lucas and Boney are talking to Mapson in Chapter 4 of MOTHER 3. "I can talk about non-map stuff too, you know. Old man Wess is definitely going to go bald."




Lucas and Boney are talking to Mapson in Chapter 4 of MOTHER 3. "Yes, there's no doubt about it. Bald. Definitely."




Once Lucas and Boney have seen Jackie and Bronson at the train station in Chapter 4, they go back to the Tazmily square and see Fassad talking to Wess. "Please be careful not to trip, get hurt, or go bald on your way home."




Then the Pigmask puts a net over Wess, with Jill / Alle / Lisa / Brenda looking on! Wess: "Cease this violence! I'm no bug! I'm an old man!"




Alle, right after this: "They're not above using violence against senior citizens, I see."




Lucas and Boney visit Wess at the nursing home Old Man's Paradise afterwards. His dove says, "Coo, coooo. (That's a fancy shirt you have.)"

The Canucks played the Capitals at 7 tonight, and lost 5-2. I showered today. Jimmy came back last night and said his grandma had fallen two weeks ago and he had to be one of the only people to take care of her after work. Okay then, BUT SAY SOMETHING BEFORE YOU FUCKING DEACTIVATE OR WHATEVER!


From my ex-friend Jimmy: I think... I think I'll just pass on ice cream today. Bubble Gum and Butt Finger Blast?!

glowing_dragon: (Poop)
The EcoClean cleaners came today at 10 AM, as advertised, and I had to give them the parking pass and pick it up later when they left at 11:35. They spoke in Spanish most of the time (but did know English) and cleaned a whole lot of things and vacuumed, including my microwave AND sink! The three ladies even dusted my book and CD displays! Of course I gave them a $10 cash tip - NOT $5 as Mom was saying, since that seemed slightly low... even $10 seemed low for three people, but I'll know for next time if there is one! Yes, Hester's husband Ni saw them on the way in as he was trying to fix the recalcitrant front door lock, but I didn't care about that.


From Julie: They say POOPING is a call of nature. Does that mean FARTING is a missed call?

glowing_dragon: (DarkEyedWolf... sex!)
I discovered that Johnny Canuck and Danika H. had both unfriended me on Facebook - okay then, what the heck?! Someone named Edward Kelvin also tried adding me in the afternoon - DENIED! I also showered today.


From Sara H.: Sexual Assault Prevention Tips! Don't assault people! Ugh, the BAD SPELLING of “accidentally” in this one...

glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)
The retina specialist's office called me at 3:30 to say that they'd scheduled a cataract surgery consultation appointment for me, on July 12 at 9:30 AM, which is a Thursday. Since I realized that would be the day before my planned dinner with Chrystal, I attempted to call her at work to reschedule, but I got voicemail. I just tried ten minutes later, and got her on the phone. Without any preamble, I told her why I was calling. We eventually rescheduled for July 6, which is good.


From Julie: Dea-Dra?! Is that a really dumbed-down version of Deirdre?!




Cortez, Cherise, Daja, Lyna, Malacai, Javarious, Rylie, and Tamika?! )

White Eric gave me and the Salsitas chips a ride to Jeremy's at 4:45 so we could hang out and watch the Washington Capitals play the Vegas Golden Knights in Playoffs Hockey Game #3, Final Round. (the Knights lost 3-1) Christon couldn't make it, but we chilled with Chinese Eric, Jeremy, and Randal instead. We discussed Old Dutch Ripple chips, my Salsitas, Mexican Chili Old Dutch chips, payment for the Pesto Chicken / Meat Lovers pizzas from Ignite Pizza, OCEAN'S ELEVEN, Reddit, ads / commercials, the next hangout (for the sake of my sanity and having to hear Chinese Eric say "you know?" every few words, I hope it's way later!), the baby's name, selling air in OLAY, contactless payment, and Amazon locks. Got home at 10 and just chilled.


Chosen Roach?!

HAPPY EASTER! It's also April Fools Day today - BOO!


The computer restarted at 6 AM! I went out to Shoppers Drug Mart at 1:20 on a 407, and bought on-sale Marketplace Cuisine meals (Butternut Squash Ravioli / Tortilla Crusted Fish / Vermont white macaroni and cheese / Sesame Chicken), on-sale canola oil, on-sale President's Choice milk chocolate eggs for Chrystal. Then I went to London Drugs for Easter chocolate which was more to my taste: on-sale Russell Stover chocolate bunnies (marshmallow / peanut butter / crispy), an on-sale Ferrero Rocher chocolate squirrel, an on-sale Aero chocolate lamb, an on-sale Smarties chocolate egg, on-sale M&M peanut butter chocolate eggs, on-sale Reese's mini peanut butter cups, and Lindt chocolate carrots! Got home at 2:20 on another 407 in the windy weather, so had some hot chocolate while throwing things away and cutting the tops off the PEPPA PIG sticker sheets for Fraser so they could actually fit in a fucking envelope.


CHOCOLATE AND MICROWAVE MEALS! )


From Someecards: Creepy Easter Bunny 44!




I sent a birthday card and some salmon jerky to Julie for her birthday, and she got it on Wednesday! Cat: "Is there an F in PRESENT?" Inside: "No, there is no F in PRESENT!" That's a lie, but whatever! :D




From Julie M. and JUDGE JUDY: Lluvia Waggoner?! Isn't that like an actual Spanish word?!




From Julie: Kevin Duck?! Reminds me of Rick Duck from that EEA program back in 1997.

The Canucks played San Jose at 7:30 tonight. Gaunce scored his first goal in 94 games! The game went to overtime, and we lost 5-4.

COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played New Jersey at 4 today, but lost 3-2. Then I went out at 6:50 after the game ended. I got two 18-packs of assorted Christmas cards / 12 Vancouver postcards (Gastown, BC Place, and the RCMP!) / three assorted packs of Christmas stickers / a pack of 40 golden Christmas decorative stickers (Poinsettias! Holly! Wreaths! Snowmen! Santa! Winter! Bells!) / a pack of Mickey Mouse stickers / a pack of Emoji stickers from the dollar store (I'm going to make it worth my while if I have to go to a store tucked away in a corner at the other end of the mall...), and on-sale orange juice / Crème de Pirouline dark chocolate artisan rolled wafers for myself from London Drugs. Thank goodness that the 407 bus driver saw me running for the bus and waited a few extra seconds, and waited a bit for me to retrieve my bus pass from my pocket! I definitely thanked him for that, besides my customary "Thank you" when I get off the bus! I got home at 8:10, which is MUCH better than a while later!

From Not Always Right: Kersten Toebben?! That's not how you spell KIRSTEN!




From Not Always Right: Austin Blessing?!




From Not Always Right: Heather Bowler?! It would be ironic if she did go bowling or did it professionally!




From Julie: Michelle A. Dick?! Her parents could have picked a different middle name which didn't start with A, because now they're saying that Michelle IS a dick! HAHAHA!

FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF Bestiary!


THIS ENTRY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NON-ALIGNED TAGS.


This is the complete bestiary for FINAL FANTASY 5 SPOOF, and all screenshots are from my own playthrough. I'd like to say that this GameFAQs bestiary document helped me a lot; thank you! (as did this one, for more precise directions in certain places) Also, this walkthrough helped me a lot, too! Actually, I was tired of suffering through emulator slowness and game glitches x8, so input a code for a 100% complete Bestiary. These maps will help, since the world map DOESN'T FUCKING WORK IN THIS GAME!

This is a good RPG Classics page for Pro Action Replay codes!

CHECK THE MAP WITH THE Y BUTTON, NOT THE R BUTTON!

Fire-Powered Ship puzzle directions.


Notes to self: Activate the All Characters Have All Abilities code, and then TAKE IT OFF, or else the game will get incredibly frustratingly SLOW. Also, take all codes off before going to the Big Bridge, or attempting to find the Phantom Village! VISHNU VEST EQUIPMENT! Speaking of equipment, EQUIP KRILE WHEN SHE JOINS THE PARTY AFTER GALUF'S DEATH! As far as codes go, the "have 99 of all items" code makes the game freeze and have sound issues!

After much frustration over three hours, I managed to defeat Omega by using the power of Mirage Vests (IMAGE STATUS) / Coral Rings (fire protection), and a pre-emptive strike! I used it to power up my blades with Thundaga Spellblade, then used Rapid-Fire on Faris... I think it was a fluke!

Also, to reset the breath timer in the sunken tower of Walse, climb up the fourth floor vine to get to that chest! I finally actually defeated Famed Mimic Gogo at the bottom of the sunken Tower of Walse by using the Dragoon / Dual-Wield x4 strategy! It was pretty tricky since I wasn't sure that all my characters would survive at least five Meteor attacks, but two of them did! Got garbled text as part of the bugged fight, too... "Dragged into another dimension! Odin: All right, that's far enough! Turning to stone... Can't escape! Countdown to Pestilence... 4 KO'd! Countdown to Eruption... 5 KO'd! Level halved! KO'd!":D

To get the Drakenvale Golem in the Bestiary, defeat the dragons first and THEN defend until he thanks you!

Stick "READ AHEAD" on a character other than Lenna! To prevent having to input all the codes over and over again, SAVE / remove all codes / then close and reopen the emulator! They should all still be there!

For the Moogle in the Forest of Moore to move after the trees have been set on fire by Tzepish, save the game in the cave and then reset. The creature should NOT be blocking the entrance.

Airship in World 3: It's just above Surgate Castle, east of the Pyramid.

DO NOT SET ANY "No Random Encounters" CODE! IT WILL GLITCH OUT THE GAME! (submarine / world map won't work, and there WILL be no random encounters)

TRY DEFEATING NEO SHINRYU FIRST BEFORE OMEGA MK. II - or else you can't get out of the room for some reason! (the exit door SHOULD be open, but is shut tight instead!)

These are all the enemies I could find in FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS!

I know that this bestiary GameFAQs document helped me a lot; thank you! Also, this walkthrough by Djibriel helped a lot when I was stuck in the game. Here's an amazing codes document. This is an enemy formation document / walkthrough. Here's a game script! Found a good Dragon's Den walkthrough which didn't have atrocious English!

This is a good code document. YAY FOR MAGICITE!

F124-EDD8 gives you 99 of every item.

I used this Youtube playlist by LowBiasGaming as a walkthrough.
