After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 10:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got NEW on-sale Samyang curry terrorist noodles, Cottonelle toilet paper x2, on-sale Sidekicks x6 (Creamy Bacon Carbonara / Garlic Butter with Lemon / Creamy Chicken Fusilli / Three-Cheese / Homestyle Cheddar / Tomato Alfredo), Ferrero Rocher hazelnut Easter eggs and NEW Easter Egg Oreos for Eric Ho and me, NEW Dark Chocolate Oreo cookies, Crayola Original washable markers x2 (yay for felts!), on-sale Good Taste dumplings x5 (Cabbage and Pork / Pork and Celery / Cabbage and Chicken / Beef and Vegetable / Pork and Chive), and NEW Dawn Lavender Wisp dish detergent.

Also got bananas, Finesse Daily Renewal shampoo and conditioner, on-sale Western Family garbage bags (60 to a box!), Western Family Skyr yogurt x2 (plain and vanilla!), Nongshim Kamja Tang Myun rich potato noodles, NEW Palmolive Soft Touch dish detergent x2 (Almond Milk and Blueberry / Coconut Butter and Orchid), on-sale Uncle Ben's rice x3 (Tomato and Herb / Cilantro and Lime / Southwest Style) and NEW St. Ives Oatmeal and Shea Butter soothing body wash. Later, I paid my Shaw bill online at home. The Canucks played the Senators at 7 tonight, and won 7-4 after practically blowing a 5-0 lead in the third.


Mr. Saturn is a blobfish in real life!

After COFFEE TIME, I went to the eye clinic by 11:45 (busing at 11 on a 401, which I got to JUST IN TIME) for an eye pressure test, but I was 25 minutes late because of snow and transit delays, NOT helped by SOMEONE thinking we had infinite time to exit the elevator at Brighouse station! It won't be 20/20 vision or anything with the other surgery, but the doctor is okay with how things are going so far. I decided to take a business card for my home use: IN THE COSMETICS BAG BY THE COMPUTER FOR EASIER ACCESS! I'm sure they have a thousand of those things! While I was out anyway, I decided just to kill time at Oakridge. Thank goodness the snow was melting because of the rain since the temperature had warmed up a bit! I found that the best wifi signal was near the food court (where I had some Pho), and definitely not at Safeway or the library!

I got NEW Pringles Groovz in Applewood Smoked Cheddar flavor, small bottles of Vaseline x2 in Cocoa Radiant Cocoa Butter / Aloe Vera, Flaming Hot Cheetos, and Jalapeno Cheddar Cheetos at Safeway. Also read a bit and talked to people on Discord, as you do. I also went to Wireless Wave to find out why my Internet data was frozen - apparently, I wasn't allowed to have any, which explains some things, but at least I can still seemingly take advantage of Wifi and Shaw Open!

We talked about her mom, Sophie, not saying hi to David yet after a year (sit in their pew!), her brother helping out, the new caregiver from church, the new worship team and their new style of songs, Belinda's new snowblower for Toronto weather, my eye surgeries, and going to No Frills later only to find that the Becel avocado oil margarine was sold out. Ugh, I'll just get it some other time since I was not in the mood to walk anymore once I got into Richmond. Got home at 7:55 on a 401, and the sidewalks were just as clear as they'd been this morning as I tried "safely running" for the bus. Yes, of course I'm a good listener as Anita told me all those years ago, and Frances affirmed tonight. I told her to look up Edward Rutherfurd if she wanted to read more historical fiction, ha!

I went out in the freezing weather at 2:15, just managing to get the 401, no thanks to the perpetual construction zone around here! Went to London Drugs to get a replacement for the Vaseline MEN lotion, where the stereotypical cologne scent lingers for HOURS - PRODUCT WARNING! I noticed that Jergens moisturizers were on sale, so I bought a Soothing Aloe Moisturizer. Bonus: I could easily twist them open! Then after asking the employee who comments on the weight of my purchases where the Mi Goreng chips were located, I found them near the Asian noodles! I bought ten small bags since Reddit chat had turned me on to them recently. Got home on a 401 at 3 to Reddit chat drama... WOW!

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.

I did some minor Boxing Day shopping today, had two A&W Teen Burgers with a 2-for-1 coupon from Mom in July, and bought butter chicken poutine from New York Fries. TAKE THAT, MIKE! Purchases: on-sale Bath and Body Works body lotion (Vanilla Bean Noel / Twisted Peppermint), three on-sale 1.2 kg boxes of Waterbridge Connoisseur chocolate brandy beans, on-sale Ferrero Rocher Golden Gallery chocolates, an on-sale Reese NHL chocolate cup for Eric Ho tomorrow, on-sale Pot of Gold Excellence fine chocolates and truffles, on-sale Andes Mints Peppermint Crunch in a Candy Cane design, on-sale Dark Chocolate Peppermint Almond Roca, and on-sale Ganong Pepts. At least I didn't have to wait an hour for the bus as I had to in previous years - I got home at 5 on a 407! The old Mad Greek restaurant is now literally a Cool Chinese Restaurant, hahaha.


PRODUCT WARNING: NO MORE Ganong Pepts chocolate peppermints! The mints spill way too easily if they're in a 2x4 formation, with 80% of the box being taken up by a long rectangle which has NOTHING in it!

After COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:10 so we could go to Dr. Wise's office again at noon. I got home at 1:45 with a prescription for eyedrops and gels (Lotemax Gel (0.5%), Prolensa [0.07% sodium!], Moxifloxacin HCL 0.5%) after a LOT of waiting since Dr. Wise was running "a bit" behind: at least I won't be nearsighted after the surgery! The other eye should match, but later on! (and I'll need new reading glasses then)

I got home to find certain Facebook messages from the usual suspect involving Tommy; okay then, do what you gotta do, but I have complied with the emotionless request which had bad grammar! THE POST WAS FROM JULY 30, AND IT IS NOW NOVEMBER 29! COME ON! I CAN ALSO VENT IF NEED BE! Now I have thrown away the old GIBSON owl coffee mug, Irish Spring bar soap, Softsoap pomegranate and mango liquid soap, yellow LifeCandy shower pouf, Dial Coconut Milk body wash, and the Finesse Extra Body shampoo and conditioner.

I've replaced them with another yellow LifeCandy shower pouf and GIBSON owl coffee mug, the orange Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser rehydration shampoo and conditioner with Marula Oil, Softsoap Vanilla Brown Sugar liquid soap, and the Dial For Men Maximum Moisture body wash. I also had to replace Scotties Lotion Kleenex boxes, my GUM toothbrush, Arm and Hammer toothpaste, GOODY toothbrush cover, and a toilet paper roll anyway. The Canucks played the Knights at 7 tonight, and lost 4-3. Blah!

Barry picked me up at 11:50 after COFFEE TIME, and I bought on-sale Knorr Sidekicks x6 (Mexican Rice / Creamy Bacon Carbonara / Country Mushroom rice / Garlic Butter with Lemon / Homestyle Cheddar / Creamy Chicken Fusilli), Vedan tea noodles, Koka spicy black pepper noodles, on-sale Arm & Hammer 50-load laundry detergent, Earth's Own almond milk, on-sale Good Taste dumplings x5 (Cabbage and Chicken / Beef and Vegetable / Cabbage and Pork / Pork and Chive / Pork and Celery), bananas, Olympic Dairy yogurt, on-sale white cheddar Kraft Dinner, Old El Paso taco seasoning to put in the Kraft Dinner while cooking it, and Stouffer’s Saute Sensations Homestyule Roast Chicken.

Also bought on-sale Ben & Jerry's ice cream x2 (Peanut Butter Half-Baked / The Tonight Dough), gold / silver / bronze Sharpies, NEW green tea matcha Pocky, NEW Klondike Bars x2 (Reese / Oh Henry! Canada), Lipton Cup-A-Soup x4 (Spring Vegetable / Chicken Noodle Supreme / Cream of Chicken / Chicken Noodle), 300 Mead index cards, NEW on-sale Barilla Ready Pasta x3 (cut macaroni / rotini / penne), NEW Tao Kae Nai ramen noodles with bonus seaweed x2 (Creamy Tom Yum Kung / Chicken), NEW Miandoru Tasty Asia green curry shrimp noodles, and a 100 mL tube of Vaseline lotion for on the go. It's probably better than moisturizer for my lips, which I tried at the store! Then we went to both banks. Facebook also thinks I had suspicious activity on my account, so forced me to change my password AGAIN just now. Newsflash: ALL the status updates, LIKED pages, and comments were MINE! At least I remembered my banking access code properly so I could pay my Shaw and hydro bills here at the library!

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME, I left at 2:55 for my dentist appointment with Sean at 3:30. Turns out the extra half hour was to update my X-rays and digital paperless records! I overheard an older guy actually argue with Sean in the waiting room about how he didn't have time to floss or brush his teeth: he wanted to weasel his way out of more frequent appointments, and didn't want to listen to BC dental rules and guidelines. I got on the Canada Line after checking my Royal Bank card balance at Oakridge Mall, but the guy in a wheelchair posed a problem for me when he wouldn't get out at Lansdowne Station, so I walked from there to London Drugs. (the guy with the bike was bad enough at Brighouse AND Oakridge Station on my way to the appointment...)

I checked out London Drugs again since both Sean and the hygienist mentioned Vaseline for my dry lips. Luckily, it was on sale, as were the replacement thin Secret bamboo socks which I was going to buy after payday. (I noticed a hole in a pair yesterday) The sales would not extend until payday, so I bought a 50g tube of Vaseline original petroleum jelly / 600mL of Vaseline intensive care lotion in a yellow bottle (which contains micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly) / a pair of replacement thin Secret bamboo socks. When I got home at 5:45 on a 407, I prepared blog entries and novel reading for COMPUTERLESS DOOM this weekend. INTO THE WILDERNESS (Sara Donati), FALL OF GIANTS (Ken Follett), HAWAII (James Michener), and LONDON (Edward Rutherfurd) are my choices!

It's Father's Day today. I discovered (old?) mouse turds in the storage box, so had to throw it (and stray lids) out along with all its contents: THE ASSASSIN'S CLOAK, Kleenex boxes, mini-Kleenex, papers, and more! Went out to Shoppers Drug Mart on a 407 at 11:30 to get a shrimp tempura roll for International Sushi Day tomorrow, and on-sale Jack Link's sriracha beef jerky for the London Drugs price. Then I went to London Drugs itself and bought a replacement blue 68L Rubbermaid storage box for the old mouse turd-filled one, NEW Trophy Foods peanuts x3 (Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper / Lime and Chili / Jalapeno), Scotch bubble wrap, on-sale Bounty paper towels, mini-packs of Kleenex x3, and on-sale Scotties Kleenex boxes x12. I got the wrong size of Kleenex AGAIN, but I'm not going to bother returning it since I already opened it. Ugh!

Chinese Eric finally emailed me back about a limited time for a Canucks hockey hangout - PHEW! I left at 4:30 in the rainy weather for Harmony's family birthday party at So Hyang Restaurant at Fraser and 47th after COFFEE TIME. We had beef bulgogi, pork bone soup, Korean noodles, deep-fried dumplings, rice, tea, kimchi, potatoes, and various other sides. Ayler and Hiero told me about the trams, cable cars, bridges, and other things in San Francisco; apparently, they were in Richmond yesterday for dinner at a place on Westminster, too. Later, Ayler wanted to feel my belly to see if I had a baby inside me, and asked Harmony how old my "baby" was; Jon says that this was unprompted. Yeah sure, yaz ugfart! Mom wants to have a turkey dinner on Thursday night, so Eric had better get back to me soon... I got home at 7:15 on a 407. Hell, I got leftovers!


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: $20 cash, a hard Chinese peach candy, a hard Chinese pear candy, a hard Ana peach candy, a yellow rabbit lollipop, Yopi iced cola gummies x25, a very tiny plastic storage container, a Chinese herbal hard candy, natural herbal cough drops x9, a half-package of spearmint Certs which expired in September 2014...

After COFFEE TIME at 3, I left for Jon's at 4:25 (later than usual - still enough light outside!) to make it on time at 5. Even though I knew I'd be there in time for dinner, I still bought a BBQ pork bun at Kam Do Bakery. Once I knocked on the window, Randal let me in without knowing who I was, and Ayler said that Uncle Randal had beat me to the house. That's fine; I don't think either of us cares about that. We talked about our weeks, his dad, the flu (the kids thought it was the most hilarious thing ever that they gave it to me...), red rice, Greek spinach with olive oil, pomelo salad, Harmony not eating chicken feet, my Turtles chocolates, Ayler telling me a big fat lie ("Mommy doesn't eat chocolate!"), my eating Hiero's carrots, not getting off at Brighouse station (but what if I want to go there?), kicking a car in revenge for it running you over, toy trains, Ayler not having school today, Mom and Dad moving to Burnaby, selling liquor at grocery stores (and those restrictions!), Chinese New Year coinciding with Steph's birthday this year, San Francisco, and Langara having lots of lights to somewhat help me even if it was completely dark outside when I left five minutes after Randal. Got home at 8:05 on a 407, which is definitely the usual time. Helps to rest and relax afterwards, for sure!


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: two Oral-B toothbrushes, two Reach toothbrushes, one Colgate toothbrush, a toothbrush cap, four tubes of Crest Pro-Health toothpaste, a United Colors of Benetton vest, two Uncle Ben's Rice coupons, a Princess Cruises Lotus Spa lotion tube, a Thann Aromatic Wood aromatherapy body lotion, and a Coral Lite zippered handbag.

After COFFEE TIME, I left at 4:40 so I could meet baby Henry for the first time at Wo's Restaurant at 5:30. I had the Advent calendars for Steph and Lisa, plus the Festive Friends cookies for Fraser. As I thought, I was late, but I'd planned it that way. I said hi to everyone, and noticed Fraser's shirt: "My aunt is cooler than yours!" Baby Henry wanted to focus on the hockey game on TV, but held my finger and stuck out his tongue while making baby noises at me. While having pork, chicken, chicken corn soup, broccoli, carrots, other vegetables, tea, rice, yee mein, and more, Fraser let me check out his toy airplane and told me about the bus trip to the airport this morning and the plane ride later. He'd also danced at Grandma Sandy's birthday party last weekend, which sounds like fun! Everyone else talked about winter clothing, Jon having gout (?!), Mr. Weatherbee in the ARCHIE comics, Ayler and Hiero learning to swear from school, Christon / Eric M. / Eddie / Eunice / Auntie Catherine / Auntie Christine / Uncle Reuben / Uncle Percy being 100 / Uncle Eric / Auntie Eva / Auntie Evie / Auntie Eileen, plans for next week, Victoria, Melia, Melissa, milk, Shoppers Drug Mart (Fraser likes shopping!), and more. Fraser even gave me a hug and kiss when we were leaving! Mom and Dad dropped me off at 7:10, which is fine by me.


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: a Dignity funeral home mint, a stray Q-tip (?!), Necco Wafers, Nosh and Co.
