I'm sorry your celebration of 420 has gotten in the way of remembering where you hid the Easter eggs.

From Grammarly: How To Write Good, by Frank L. Visco!

Caveat emptor. Carpe diem. O si villi, si ergo, fortibus is in ero. Et tu, brute.

My several years in the word game have learnt me several rules:

1. Avoid alliteration. Always.
2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
3. Avoid clichés like the plague. (They're old hat.)
4. Employ the vernacular.
5. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
6. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
7. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
8. Contractions aren't necessary.
9. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
10. One should never generalize.
11. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."
12. Comparisons are as bad as clichés.
13. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.
14. Profanity sucks.
15. Be more or less specific.
16. Understatement is always best.
17. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
18. One-word sentences? Eliminate.
19. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
20. The passive voice is to be avoided.
21. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
22. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
23. Who needs rhetorical questions?

Yesterday, Holly invited me to Steveston Pizza at her place tonight. Nobody was going to have the $850 pizza! ("SEENAY: Medley of tiger prawns, lobster ratatouille, smoked steelhead, Russian Osetra caviar, snowed with Italian white truffles $850") After I showered and had COFFEE TIME, Brian kindly picked me up at the hospital at 7:10 even though the pizza place was way closer to his apartment. We chatted about the expensive pizza (a MOUND of seafood on the order before his?!) and the NHL Draft Pick Lottery Day before getting to Holly's, where I unsuccessfully completed a call to her. She wanted to throw her keys down to us again, but actually answered the door instead once she realized Brian had five pizza boxes.

I said hey to Darryl and Paulo, informing Paulo that the temporary crosswalk was now closed off. He put his head in his hands and said, "I hate it..." Trust me, I understand ANY ranting he has to do on the issue! We all talked about life, Vegas, walking a lot on the LONG Strip blocks, online people, chatrooms, drunkenness, dodgy stuff, seeing family members, work schedules, Holly's new job starting tomorrow, dead people, being a travel agent, working with the general public, and upcoming plans. As usual, I have none. I did almost forget my jacket, oops. Darryl called me by name when we said bye to him outside, which shouldn't really be a surprise. Brian dropped me and Paulo off at about 9:40, which is pretty good. I actually have time to blog without being rushed off to do other things!

When I got to Deb and Dylan's last night, I got settled in as Declan told me a lot of stuff about MOTHER GOOSE PRESCHOOL MINECRAFT / Eep the Mouse / spawns and mobs and Creepers. Elysse was watching FROZEN downstairs, so she told me about Anna and Elsa and Olaf. Typical kid talk, but I don't mind knowing about their stuff and interests! They were able to stay up till 10 PM just entertaining themselves for the most part, so that was good for them. Elysse described Hiero as her best friend, which is cute. Declan also knows Ayler, of course. At least the kids seemed to like me, so YAY!

Today started out with HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, iPads, a poppyseed bagel for breakfast, then after a while, Dylan kindly agreed to take me by my place while he and Elysse were out anyway so I could get some more pants. We also went to a random house to get an AirSoft table for Hiero's birthday party next week. Elysse was pretty patient, all things considered. I opted for the Walmart elevators every time, even if I had to meet Dylan and Elysse upstairs since the kid wanted the escalators. She and I looked at a lot of toys, even if she wanted to pull me to the escalators after she was done people-watching. Too bad that I'm still stronger than a little girl on the eve of her fifth birthday! I didn't pull her arm, though. We discussed how it was fine and okay to make mistakes, a bunch of toys, HATCHIMAL toys, and dolls.

We got home in time for more MINECRAFT, but it was naptime for me! I got up in time for Dylan's parents to show up and then leave a little later for the family dinner they had tonight. Deb kindly made me soup with veggies and noodles, plus some other noodle leftovers and gyoza... Dylan cut up some meat for me as well before they left. I had peace and quiet to do some naughty things before they got back at 9:30. (I also watched some YOU and EAT A CUP OF TEA on Netflix) Dylan's parents are staying overnight from Langley, which is good. Lots of styrofoam from Elysse's new ballerina doll, that's for sure!

Barry picked me up at 11:30 for my follow-up appointment at the eye clinic today. Everything looks good according to Dr. Wise, who gave me two more bottles of eyedrops, which I got the pharmacy next door to open! I also have a one-week followup appointment on the 17th at 1:30 PM, which is definitely a convenient time for me to bus. No more eye shield except for at night or when I sleep! Then Rachel called me at 5 today for about ten minutes; she says I sound good and I managed very well. I HOPE SO, hahaha! I will get to Dylan and Deb's place safely tonight after the kids' Mandarin class and dinner - phew!

I discovered redrum last night - UGH! After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got on-sale Uncle Ben's rice x3 (Mushroom / Tomato and Herb / Jambalaya), Nissin black garlic oil noodles / BulJjamppong Korean beef seafood noodles / Paldo Volcano Chicken noodles / Nongshim Kamja Tang Myun rich potato noodles, NEW on-sale Charlotte's holiday butter cookies ($2 more for 430 grams vs. 340 grams for Royal Dansk), on-sale toys for Hiero's birthday presents where the original price even beats the Amazon price (EMOJI MOVIE Memory matching card game / Mega Bloks Smash Stunt Zeg truck), on-sale Cottonelle toilet paper x2, on-sale spearmint Dentyne gum, and Hainanese chicken which expires on the 23rd.

I also got NEW Oikos pineapple Greek yogurt, NEW Danone Oikos Lemon Meringue Creations Greek yogurt, JOY dumplings x6 (Lamb and Onion / Tri-Treasure / Pork and Chive / Pork and Vegetable), on-sale Liberté Skyr Icelandic-style yogurt x3 (plain / raspberry / vanilla bean - so I don't have to go all the way to Superstore for it right now!), soft Chips Ahoy cookies (original and peanut butter), on-sale Campbell's Chunky Soup (Chicken Sausage Gumbo and Creamy Chicken Noodle), and on-sale unsweetened Silk almond milk. We had to go back to Coast Capital (discussing Joy Division and the Clash and hockey fights) because my debit card came up with a "CAN'T PROCESS" error at the store! Ugh! At least I LUCKILY had the $180 cash to pay for my purchases, but STILL! This is a new card from late JULY, too! Bonus: The bank teller's name was HARSHDEEP!

After that, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online at home. Then I got a Christmas photo card from Janet S. (ghost_light) and Christmas presents and stuff from Julie in a bubble-wrap envelope! A Christmas card with stickers, red and pink CHRISTMAS HOUSE penguin socks, a fun and fuzzy JOT ballpoint pen, Women Daredevils: Thrills, Chills, and Frills (Julie Cummins / Cheryl Harness), eight sticker sheets (Christmas glitter / wild animals / truck stickers which Ayler and Hiero would probably stick all over the floor if I gave it to them / five more assorted sheets), two fun and encouraging little notebooks ("You can do this!" / "Best day ever!"), and a penguin pouch of Cappuccino For You! Eric Ho also finally emailed me back, saying that with his current work schedule, the 27th is the only date that could work for a hockey hangout before the new year. Well, at least he'll keep me posted!

I went to H and M at 12 on a 401, but they HADN'T put my sweatpants on hold last night... ugh! They had to get a runner employee to find the sweatpants. Thank goodness that one of the three sweatpants had the right style number (06365 868), so I was able to get that blue one, paying by cash. The clerks were very apologetic that it wasn't really put on hold and that I had to wait more for the frozen computer.

Then I went to Shoppers Drug Mart to get a Hungry Man turkey microwaveable meal, getting home at 12:50 on a 401. IF I DIDN'T HAVE TO WAIT AT THE STORE, I COULD HAVE TAKEN THE 407 AT 12:30, GETTING HOME EARLIER! Merlin also just messaged me on Discord - he, Kramer, Poohbear, and Kitsune have just received their Christmas card and Soo salmon jerky! Excellent, even with the Canada Post strike backlog!

Trivia Card 1, which is yellow! "A card with an obscure trivia question on it. Try using it on human enemies." The question was "What was the slogan for EARTHBOUND?" The correct answer to Trivia Card 1 is "This game stinks!"




Trivia Card 2, which is blue! "A card with an obscure trivia question on it. Try using it on human enemies." The question is something about food. The correct answer to Trivia Card 2 is "Croquette roll."




Trivia Card 3, which is green! "A card with an obscure trivia question on it. Try using it on human enemies." It's likely that the question was "Who were the developers of the MOTHER series?" The correct answer to Trivia Card 3 is "Ape."




Trivia Card 4, which is purple! "A card with an obscure trivia question on it. Try using it on human enemies." There is a likelihood that the question was "What great event took place in the 1800s?" since half of the answers took place in the 1800s. The Civil War took place from 1861 to 1865, the Industrial Revolution took place from 1750 to 1850, and the Battle of the Alamo took place from February 23 to March 6, 1836. The correct answer to Trivia Card 4 is "the Civil War."

SO MUCH ON-SALE BLACK PEPPER SALMON JERKY FOR ME AND JIMMY AND JULIE, OH MY! I called Barry at 8:35 AM to tell him about the mouse on the glue trap which I discovered last night. The computer restarted at 6 AM! I called Barry at 9:40 this morning to remind him about going to Rona for a Victor Pest Chaser Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller, which cost $33. I went to the pharmacy next door at 1:50 to refill my prescription early; yes, even Adam commented on it!

I left at 5:55 to get two 3-subject Hilroy notebooks in green and light blue (for home use and road use) from London Drugs, returning home at 6:40 on a late 407. CHOCOLATE AND BATHROOM REPLACEMENTS GALORE AGAIN, and today's date is a palindrome: 8/1/18! Yesterday, Frances C. emailed me to say that she couldn't make it to Felico's because of work, which is fine. I went out at 12 on a 401 so I could buy Campbell's Chunky Soup (Jerk Chicken with Vegetables / Butter Chicken with Vegetables), NESCAFÉ instant coffee (December 16, 2017), a NEW on-sale limited edition Oh Henry!

No luck at all, even when I dragged an associate across the store! At least now I have the phone number and (mow that I'm home) the proper tag numbers for my preferred style of sweatpants! 604-279-1811 AND 063 658 68! When I got home and organized stuff, I called the store - they don't have that one because it's popular / best-selling, but will have a shipment in very soon, and said I should call in the late afternoon or early evening. Okay, then!

I got on-sale Arm and Hammer 50-load laundry detergent and store brand garbage bags at Shoppers, and on-sale bulk pads x2 (saving $1 per package) at London Drugs (just missing the 407) before hauling the heavy stuff home at 2:50 on a 401, having to get off one stop earlier because of the road closures and construction! Gotta remind white Eric about that soon... I also found a random Bench / Body men's underwear in her dried laundry. o_O

Before COFFEE TIME at noon, I called Chrystal at 11:55 at work to confirm that we were still on for tonight at 7:30. After MORE COFFEE TIME at 5:30, I left at 6:55 in order to meet Chrystal at the Broadway London Drugs at 7:30 in the rain. I had the Ziploc bag full of Canadian maple syrup candies / Gusto Caffé candies / Mastic mints, the scary Halloween candy (ScAero / Scaries / Coffin Crisp / Ghostly Kit-Kat), her Christmas card, a LOT of extra candy, hot chocolate, and her Crème de Pirouline dark chocolate artisan rolled wafers. That grew so out of control that I had to get a spare tote bag for everything instead of a mere light plastic bag! It was pretty heavy, but I managed! Chrystal got there at 7:45 and tried telling me that she really couldn't take all of that, but I managed to convince her with the power of an NG LOOK before we went to Pho Extreme!

She thanked me profusely (saying I was very generous) and was amazed at how I'd managed to take all that from home. Eh, it was only a half hour's trip at most, and I made liberal use of the ground / floor to rest it on, haha! (and the wheeled basket once I got into the store) We talked about the holidays, hot pot, Emily / Mike / Ethan / Melia / Angus / Owen / Mackenzie / Ayler (who wants to spend more time with me!) / Hiero / Fraser / Henry, toddler quirkiness, saying "fuck" for "fork," the siblings fighting, the photos of the kids which I'd brought along, Yaohan / Big Crazy, paying cash, steak / tripe / spicy things, sharing all her goodies with people, plans for the year, floods, her admin work being less busy these days, rides being a good thing, and spam emails. I got home at 9:25 on a 407, which is about the time I was expecting. Good to catch up and unload a bunch of stuff, for sure! Now someone is asking me what tripe tastes like - I DON'T KNOW! It's just tripe to me - very chewy, of course.
