TODAY IS PI DAY!


From Julie: Happy Pi Day 2019 with 3.14 candles, confetti, and a pie!




Happy Pi Day with oven mitts and a pie fresh out of the oven!




From Pete: What do you call a snake that's 3.14 metres long? A π-thon.




From the Daily Mail: There's a Back Passage in London, England near the Smithfield Market and the Barbican?!




From my Endlessly Engrossing Bathroom Reader #22: EXTRAORDINARY CHICKENS?!

I went out again at 5 on a 407 to Shoppers Drug Mart. Wanted to get a lot of soup for the snow: on-sale Campbell's Everyday Gourmet soup x4 (Fire-Roasted Sweet Pepper and Tomato / Harvest Mushroom with White Wine / Garden Market Vegetable / Golden Butternut Squash), on-sale Lipton Cup-A-Soup x4 (Chicken Noodle x2 / Chicken Noodle Supreme x2), and President's Choice canned soup x3. (World of Flavors Thai Chicken / World of Flavors Indian Chicken Mulligatawny / World of Flavors Mexican Chicken) Then I got home at 6:10 after taking pictures of the DRAGON ARTWORK at the hospital across the street.


Checked my mail, and got a belated Make-A-Wish Australia Christmas card and a bunch of Australian postcards from Deanna H. in the mail this week. (Elephant In The Room / DYNAMICS OF AIR / Hop Fest - Yarra Valley's New Beer and Cider Festival / Cook On The Pacific / Disney Christopher Robin x2 / MAKE BELIEVE: THE STORY OF THE MYER CHRISTMAS WINDOWS from the Melbourne Museum / "Be grateful that today is Saturday, as it means you still have tomorrow to monkey around" / "Being with you is like hearing my favorite song")


From Julie: "Snow Predicted" Oil painting on canvas... milk, bread, and toilet paper sounds about right for Vancouver this weekend! -8 is COLD!

Lots of soups here! )

After MORE COFFEE TIME, I left just before 4:30 to make it to Wo's: A family dinner for Dad's 69th birthday! Of course I was the first one there! (and I saw Mr. Creep on the bus AGAIN...) Harmony set a new record in convincing the Wo's owner to turn off the TV, which was tuned to the Cartoon Network: SEVEN MINUTES! We talked about strata meetings, moving on Thursday, Burnaby, the lards' car leaking oil, Uncle William, plans for this week, the farmer's market, snacks, dessert, finding my Fit-Overs (which I just found within two minutes of looking for them), Beckett sleeping, Ayler and Hiero asking about candy and the time, me being drunk / red-faced / snorty / giggly on the beer which Jon bought, and Quality Street chocolates. I got home at 8 on a 407, no thanks to just missing the previous 407 at Brighouse! Mom thought I needed to be told to look both ways before crossing the street at Marine Drive Station - I wasn't THAT drunk! Jon wants me to come over on Tuesday for dinner help - after Rachel, for sure.

Dinner: Steamed chicken, sweet and sour pork, green beans and ground beef, cod fish, tofu cakes, corn soup, lamb, Bring-Your-Own-Beer (Andina Guava Saison 6.5%), rice, and tea!

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: Instant oxtail soup mix x3 (expiry date: July 18, 2019) / a triple-zippered leopard print Sport Sport wallet / chicken noodle Lipton Cup-A-Soup which expired on June 13, 2014 / spring vegetable Lipton Cup-A-Soup which expired on May 30, 2013 / spring vegetable Lipton Cup-A-Soup which expired on February 9, 2012 / a nearly full bag of McCormicks cinnamon hearts / a bag of Nosh and Co. Munch Madness lightly salted potato chips which expires on March 10, 2019 / AN HONEST DAY'S WORK white mug / two brown flowery very thin neck wraps / a pair of black knee socks / Organics honey and ginger green tea x7 / Twinings Earl Grey bergamot tea / Bigelow Cozy Chamomile herbal tea / Lipton Spiced Chai black tea / dinner leftovers / $5 cash.

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.

I got the rest of my TamiFlu delivered to me at home today at 12:40... thank GOD that it's in a snap cap bottle and not child-resistant! Paul said he got my salmon jerky today (which he said was good), and also that my card was sweet. The Canucks played the Kings at 7 tonight, and won 6-2.


From OLD FAITHFUL Bathroom Reader #30: Moe Cotton was a Guam politician with signs reading "Pick Moe Cotton"?!




Timberly Whitfield is a TV personality?!

COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played the Islanders at 4 today, and lost 5-2.


In FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF, the party gets 666 gil for defeating three Water Buzz enemies near the Big Bridge and Tzepish's Castle.




Julie M. saw this commercial for Little Apple Market in Allentown, PA. COOMING SOON?!




In the same Little Apple Market commercial, Julie M. saw this: SENIORS CITIZENS?! Also, "we BAKED our bread daily"?! You mean they don't do it anymore? That's NOT a selling point, people!

After MORE COFFEE TIME, I left at 4:25 so I could have dinner with the parents, Jon, Harmony, Ayler, Hiero, Jesse, Trish, Caleb, Eric M., Jeremy, Kevin, and Christon at Wo's Restaurant at 5:15. We had pork, daikon lettuce, veggies, beef, rice, fish, green beans, ground beef, tofu, and more! Talked about letters made out of chopsticks, Seattle, natto, the Pike Place Market, Jon smuggling some Blackberry Jam beer and Four Winds beer into the restaurant, hot and sour soup, life catch-up, moving, the (vegan / vegetarian) chili meal for that Sunday Dinner on the 2nd at Jeremy's, and more. On the rainy way home (extended because of Eric and robot mode), Mom called about a "pomarillo," which Eric figured meant a pomelo. Well, I couldn't find it, so whatever - at least it's not mine! At least I got a ride from Eric to that December dinner if I remember to remind him. Got home at 7:25, which is very good.


Random stuff from Mom and Dad, stuffed in a Skechers bag: a Joytel Group Hotels toothbrush, a Reitman's green and grey striped shirt, blue Princess Cruises pants x2, a pale green Jones New York vest, a tan Tradition vest, a light green Van Heusen shirt, dark blue Eddie Bauer skorts, black and white pants with no washing instructions or brand, a blue-grey Reitman's shirt, a dark brown Ralph Lauren polo shirt, a green Carroll Reed shirt, a black Marallis Collection dress shirt, a black Fashion Gallery button-up fancy dress shirt, a brown Reitman's shirt where the neck is too small to put an adult head through, a flowery Tan Jay dress jacket, and a blue Dalia sweater with neckline buttons that are largely decorative.
glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
Jason's birthday is April 1. After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 5 to meet Vanessa and Jason at Joyce Station by 6:30, I brought the peanut butter / peppermint Whittakers chocolate bars, the carrot cake Hershey's Kisses, and the birthday cards! I just managed to get the 407, just missed a Canada Line train, and just missed a 41 Joyce bus! Oh, the humanity! Vanessa and her work friend Elizabeth were still waiting for me, while Jason was parked down the road a bit. When Vanessa gave me the Bath and Body Works White Citrus foaming hand soap, Bath and Body Works Peach Bellini foaming hand soap, and Bath and Body Works Fresh Market Apple foaming hand soap, I gave her all the chocolate and stuff before I forgot. She said that she might be able to get me a ride to Richmond with her friends Wayne and Shelina, which was fine by me. I also met her friends Elizabeth, Chad (who's a smoker), and Jen. We talked about work, the hour-long lineup to get into Anton's, Wayne and Shelina (who are FWB) being extremely late (WE DON'T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT A VIAGRA / CIALIS MOMENT, JASON!), beer, picture frames, newspaper routes, Shelina's clingy ten-year-old son, my aspirin, Jason's back pain, Elizabeth being a registered Shiatsu massage therapist, gay Patrick, going downtown, my spicy Fusilli New Orleans pasta with shrimp / scallops / chicken / Italian sausage, Jen living near Boundary, Shelina somehow spelling "Hastings" with an M, Shelina being Native and being from Victoria (but her parents now live on a reserve near Agassiz), emulators, MAME and arcade games, directions, tiramisu cake, and Easter weekend plans. It was a good time out, but now I'm ready to relax!


Fusilli New Orleans!
