Today is Dictionary Day! :D

Canada Post didn't even make an effort to deliver my newest Bathroom Reader in my mailbox, instead sticking a "failure to deliver" notice inside without a phone call. Guess I'll have to make the trek over to Blundell Centre tomorrow before the hockey game... sigh. Of course I had to shower today, though.

I showered and did some laundry today, so at least I can feel more human and less like a desiccated corpse!


I got a free sample of Excel Soft Chew peppermint gum in the mail yesterday!




From Reddit on August 16, 2017: "All these RED FLAG questions are so negative!" DUH! I'm very surprised that Sikamixoticelixer thinks that RED FLAGS would be positive...




From Reddit on August 24, 2017: No, Bmoreisapunkrocktown, tampons are NOT heteronormative! They're simply one option to use while you're on your period. That's ALL there is to it!

After COFFEE TIME, Tryanna from Pathways picked me up at 12:30 today so we could do some food shopping, but I'm fairly sure I lost my voice at some point overnight. We talked about Croatia, her smoking, Pho, tripe, bubble tea, and more. I got bananas, two birthday cards for Jeremy (beer!) and Christon, on-sale Paldo spicy cheese noodles, Dove lemon shampoo, Dove lemon conditioner, Dove hydration conditioner to go with the GLISS shampoo, on-sale store brand Western Family echinacea, Vedan spicy mushroom and cuttlefish noodles, Nissin sesame oil noodles, on-sale Paldo garlic Namja Ramen, on-sale October Fifth Bakery lotus red bean mooncake.

Also got on-sale Chunky Soup (Beef / Vegetable Beef / Chicken Noodle Soup x2 / Clam Chowder), on-sale original Laksa La Mian noodles, NEW limited-edition Doritos Sonic Sour Cream chips, on-sale store brand Western Family white vinegar, Olivina margarine with olive oil, three cans of Fat Choy straw mushrooms, an on-sale Hungry Man microwaveable turkey dinner / a Swanson's turkey pot pie for Thanksgiving weekend, an on-sale Pepsi bottle for attempted toilet cleaning purposes, on-sale Earth's Own almond milk, and on-sale Lipton tomato garden vegetable soup. Tryanna wanted to know if we could have coffee afterwards since they apparently have a budget for that, but I wanted to get my frozen stuff home and focus on resting my voice instead. Maybe if my voice was 100% today! At least she said that she wanted to help me more often if Barry couldn't!

I went out at 3:10 (just managing to catch the 401) to London Drugs to buy a new Vileda PowerFibres toilet brush and holder, a new Vileda dust pan, new store brand multivitamins, Clover Leaf pink salmon x2, and Gilette bar mop towels x2. I also mailed something to Julie, and got home at 3:45 on another 401 bus. Laurie is in for the MEGA SUSHI dinner, too! MORE COFFEE!


Vileda dust pan!

"You Are Wise"




You are a steady, smart, and savvy person. You can be counted on to keep your head, even in times of crisis.
You spend a lot of time thinking, and you value knowledge. You are constantly learning.

You seek to understand first no matter what. From there, you can lend assistance and support the best you can.
You are constantly growing your perspective. You feel like there is always more to be gained from seeing the bigger picture.







From Julie: Jeff Bridges! Jeff Tunnels!

I got a baby intro photo card from Steph and Lisa in the mail for baby Henry - very nice! I'm not going to comment on the spelling of "shenanigans," though! Steph said that Shaun did comment on it, haha!


From Julie S. and Funnyjunk: I deal with my problems by painting over the squares on my Rubik's Cube!

"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!

I sent Jon a Facebook message this morning after COFFEE TIME to wonder what time I should drop by tomorrow, and 2:45 sounds good to me!

"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.




glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)
Jon sent me a Facebook message at 9:40 about possibly helping with the kids on Monday afternoon, and mentioned that he'd let Harmony arrange Wednesday with me. Sure, why not? That reminded me to call Barry AGAIN at 11:45 to see if I could change our appointment time since that's also on Wednesday. This time, I left a message! He called me back shortly after, saying that he'd been going to call me because he also wanted to change the appointment time since he'll be in Vancouver for longer than he thought. YAY FOR GOOD TIMING! Thursday afternoon at 12:30 works for me!


From Not Always Right: Kai Drawwater?! Draw Water?! Now I want fish and chips, too...




From Not Always Right: Katrin Schirmir?! The last name is rhymy, and the first name looks incomplete. It should really be Katrina! She also claims to be an introvert (but uses it in the "social anxiety" way), claims to be part of the LGBT spectrum (yet is married to a man), and always repeats people's jokes back to them when she isn't commenting 20 times on one story alone...




From Not Always Working: Kristen Parlee? Parlee as in "parley" spelled correctly, as in TALKING?!




From Not Always Working: Keera Ann Fox?!




From Not Always Working: Keesha Turner?! I bet she's black...

glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)



"You Are the Judicial Branch"




You have a well-developed sense of right and wrong, but you are always open to changing your mind about the details.
You have a very rational mind. You never judge until you learn all of the facts and context for something.

You are good at seeing issues in full. You can hold a lot of details in your head at once, and you're able to organize chaos.
You aren't an overly emotional person, and you can see when people are arguing from emotion. You can step back and assess without passion.

Steph called me at noon to catch up. She'd tried calling me last week to say that she'd received the card I'd mailed for baby Henry, but I'd been sleeping! She said that Cecilia and Angela Mok had visited her and baby Henry, and so did Sandy's family. Thank goodness they didn't go with Michael for the baby's middle name (after Lisa's dad Mike), but went with Mike's middle name instead. Fraser apparently loves the animal book I got him, wanting Lisa to read it to him multiple times a day EVERY DAY (much to her chagrin), and is now recognizing and naming a lot of those animals by himself. He also likes baby Henry, wanting to kiss him a lot, which is good! Steph says that Hiero is "very naughty" when it comes to Mom, and apparently, he hit her the other day. Go, Hiero!

Apparently, Mom wants Steph to intervene in Ryan and Morgan's cancelled wedding - that's not her business, and she probably wouldn't want to, anyway! Fraser was at daycare right then (which is more interesting than being at home with just Steph and the baby), and Henry was making funny noises when he was waking up from a nap. I said hi to him and told him that I was his aunt, which apparently got no reaction, but that's okay since he's a baby. I also told Steph that Ayler now knows the word "vagina," and that our parents were indeed horrified when he said that at lunch! I can imagine him asking me whether I have one - oh dear. Imagine if he busts that word out at kindergarten when he starts school! Steph says that she and Lisa are thinking of coming here in November around Remembrance Day weekend, and that Lisa just transplanted her job over when they moved - good stuff!


From Janina: I found the G-spot in a parking garage, guys!




From Julie S. and Snapchat: A chili and rice BOWEL?! Fresh LAME juice?! Fresh LAME soda?!

I went out at 1:10 to London Drugs so I could mail a card and stickers to Fraser EARLY for his second birthday, and bought a small Jersey Milk chocolate bar / Ragusa Noir dark chocolate bars x2 for me and Eric Ho / on-sale Lindt Fudge Swirl chocolate truffles. When I got home, the Internet STILL was spotty and not working, so I had to call up Shaw AGAIN to see what was going on with that. The girl recommended I go to the Richmond Centre Shaw store and pick up a free Wi-Fi router / modem instead of waiting for it to be mailed, so I did that at 3.

I also dropped by Shoppers Drug Mart to see what else they had for sale: I saved $12 on Stouffer's Sauté Sensations! Thai Chicken, Shrimp Alfredo, Chicken Alfredo, and Chicken Parmigiana... yay for working freezers! Then I got home and called Shaw again, getting an East Indian person in Winnipeg instead. He eventually set up an appointment on Friday between 12 and 2 for a technician to come out, but also put me on a priority line because I technically had no service. At 6:15, I went on a useless time-wasting trip to Brighouse Library because I couldn't remember any passwords! After I walked home, I played more FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF from when I continued it earlier in the afternoon.

Julie S. reminded me via Facebook chat to check my mail for the thing she sent me. So I did, and discovered a small box. I got a card with cherries on it, a Canucks-themed bracelet, and various lion / giraffe / elephant / seal / fox / bear / cat / Leonardo / Michaelangelo / Donatello / Raphael / Snow White / Cinderella / Disney stickers from Julie in the mail today in a Paul Newman's Organic Popcorn box - THANKS! :D

I also found a photo of the bracelet online by Googling "Canucks metal bracelet," too! WHEE!

I think it's amusing that I'm mentioning Teunis and Krista in the same post since they used to go out with each other and are now exes, haha. :D

After MORE COFFEE TIME, I went out at 6:15 to mail Lisa's Twisted Whiskers goldfish in martini birthday card to her at the London Drugs post office. Then I went to the Richmond Centre Dining Terrace food court (eating some food first - vegetable chow mein, mixed vegetables, pepper steak, and slightly spicy Kung Pao chicken from Kung Pao Wok) to meet up briefly with Teunis so to return a Christmas-themed envelope with Teunis's name on it, plus a Percy Jackson and Olympians: The Lightning Thief DVD box. At least, I intended it to be briefer than it was. He brought his wife and child (Rochelle and Heidi) from Burnaby, and we both got closure on what happened in 2011, which is nice. Discussed his not talking to Jasmine anymore (good!), understanding, being stressed out, no online following (which is totally fine), vegetables, his treating me to a mango oolong bubble tea with small pearls from Fair Bee Bubble Tea (I was too fast for him when it came to dinner food!), and my nephews.

We also talked about their Vietnamese food with sauces and shrimp salad rolls, Heidi wanting to give me her used plastic cutlery, his meeting Mike once briefly, our lives now, shaking hands, web design, Heidi's impatience / thinking it was Metrotown with the train for kids / liking all the lights, the Canucks, Vikings, my learning the importance of non-rushed alone time / non-emergencies, and a floor plan of the mall. I got home with leftovers at 8:20 on a 407, which is good because it was still light out. At least he says that it's good to see I'm doing much better, and I can say the same for him as well.


From Julie: A dragon refining a castle with his breath!




From Krista: Cloud water dragon with a green imp and trees!

glowing_dragon: (No Netspeak!)
I went out at 2:40 to get more on-sale President's Choice Blue Menu Six Bean Medley cans at Shoppers Drug Mart as long as they're still 99 cents! The pharmacist next door recognized me and waved at me, so we chatted briefly while waiting for the light to change. Yeah, Richmond smells like shit again today! I got six cans of beans, two on-sale Brookside dark chocolate bags (mango-mangosteen / pomegranate), eight 99-cent White Cheddar and Broccoli Sidekicks (all the available stock on the shelf like last time!), and an on-sale Speed Stick Irish Spring original deodorant before getting home at 3:25 on a 407.

From Janina and Whisper: It disgusts me every time I hear girls talk about how expensive they want their engagement rings to be. A man is offering his life to you, and you're worried about a hunk of carbon on a metal circle.

Ayler called me again at 12:50 to ask what time I'd be eating lunch and what time I'd be finished eating, so I told him that I'd be eating pasta at 1:30, but I'd have to make it first. Then Hiero said that he'd had a pink and white and red cupcake today: nice! Harmony said that the kids liked calling people to chat, even if they were eating lunch at the time. Cute and reasonable!

After I finally blocked Randal (who tried CALLING me?!), Janina let me know that she got the skull bandages / skull notebooks / Ghostly Kit-Kats / Scaries / ScAero / Coffin Crisp / letter stickers / Halloween cards / a birthday card which I'd mailed her and Marilynn last week. She appreciates my prayers and good thoughts, as well she should! Emailed Chinese Eric about things, not least the Thanksgiving Dinner! That made me feel a lot better, too. :D
glowing_dragon: (LJ Drama)
Went out to buy another bubble-wrap envelope for Corey, a 69-cent CANADA one-litre bottled water / some Jensen's Chips for me, Ghostly Kit-Kats x8 (me / Eric Ho / Corey / Janina / Marilynn / Chrystal / Harmony / Lisa), Scaries x3, ScAero x3, and Coffin Crisp x3 at London Drugs before I mailed skull bandages / skull notebooks / scary candy / letter stickers / Halloween cards / a birthday card to Janina and Marilynn. It was $21.82, but I'll eat the extra cost. When I got home, I emailed Corey to make sure he's coming home for Xmas from Taiwan, and organized everything into Ziploc bags. I didn't forget the extra skull notebook, Christmas card, birthday card, or glittery Vegas postcard for Corey!

Went out today after I called Barry to set up a food shopping appointment: my poor sleep schedule is going to suffer if it's on Friday at 10 AM, but I guess I'll deal. Eric also sent me an email about Friday's program and small groups on Wednesdays; I'll think about it. I did the usual banking after mailing my bus pass application, then I spent some time trying to redeem some Shoppers Optimum points only because I'd discovered that the zipper on my newest London Drugs bag BROKE! (I'd only had that thing since July 17, man!) I managed to find the ones at Shoppers all right, and selected a purple-and-green one with a gold SOLID zipper. Hopefully, that won't break on me anytime soon! That was $25, but I got it for free with the points redemption. I also got some Fire-Roasted Chipotle artisan Tostitos chips, and a more manageable size of on-sale Lindt dark chocolate bar. I'll give the original 300g one to Chrystal, haha.

Decided to go to London Drugs since their large Ziploc bags were cheaper than Shoppers; the extra-large ones were also on sale, so I got two units! While there, I saw the morbid Halloween candy which Janina wanted me to buy: Scaries, Scaero, and Coffin Crisp! I saw ghostly Kit-Kats as well, but I decided not to get them for now. Purchased those for me / Janina / Marilynn / Lisa / Harmony (should get some for Eric H. and Chrystal later), on-sale Pepperidge Farm Chessmen (shortbread?), Halloween cards and stickers, a bubble-wrap envelope for mailing purposes, and two maple syrup nougat chocolate bars. Got home and organized everything first before delving into my latest project again, of course. The skull stuff fits into the envelope, so that'll be going to California!
