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.

I went out at 2:05 to see Rachel at 2 at the Caring Place. THE BUS STOPS CHANGED AGAIN BECAUSE OF THE CONSTRUCTION! I had to walk to the next 414 stop near the London Drugs, and had just missed the 401 AND 407! UGH! When I got home at 4 on a 407, I took a shower.

Last night, I discovered a cut in my BRAND-NEW bag of Jalapeno Cheddar Cheetos! The Cheetos had slightly spilled in the plastic tub, so I had to throw them out - UGH! I was too tired or lazy to go out in the cold AGAIN to check my reusable bag, so I did that this morning - yup, there were more Cheetos in there, along with a grease stain on my notebook! Had to throw out the bag and the notebook, and put the scarf and Canucks gloves in the laundry hamper.

I left at 2 to go to The Caring Place to see Rachel on a 414. Then I went to London Drugs for a new replacement red Hilroy notebook / a big new reusable bag / variety hot chocolate pack (Turtles / Coffee Crisp / After Eight) / on-sale Lindt chocolate bars x2 for Harmony's birthday (Caramel and Sea Salt / Lime Zest) / an on-sale white chocolate Aero bar / an on-sale mint chocolate Aero bar for National Chocolate Mint Day today before going home at 4:05 on a 401, which I managed to get just in time before the SNOW started to stick!

2018 Year In Review!


THIS ENTRY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NON-ALIGNED TAGS.

[Meme fun: Take the first line from the first post of every month of the year. Repost it here as your year in review. (I'm discounting greetings and things like that :P) Yeah, it's been an interesting year!]

Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of the year. Post the first line of it in your journal as a paragraph, and that's your "Year In Review."

I got a baby girl card for Jason and Vanessa ("KEEP CALM AND CARRY BABY WIPES"), NEW Shasha organic ginger snaps for Vanessa (no sugar?!), 200g of on-sale Ferrero Rocher, 100 store brand bandages, a NEW Carnation variety pack of hot chocolate (TURTLES Canada / Coffee Crisp / After Eight), and NEW Lipton Chicken Noodle Supreme soup from London Drugs, which has just started charging for plastic bags. 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! Canada / Oh Henry 4:25 Pop-Up candy bar, barkTHINS snacking dark chocolate with pumpkin seeds for Thanksgiving dinner, NEW limited edition Doritos Late Night Fully-Loaded Nacho chips, and HALLS assorted mint cough drops. I went out at 12:20 on a 414 to do some shopping for on-sale Halloween candy and Advent calendars. COFFEE TIME while I'm still figuring out why Jimmy blocked me instead of just talking to me about what I did...... I should have posed it as a hypothetical a while ago!
glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
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!

Lucas and Boney drop by Paul and Linda's house in Chapter 4: A wide-screen, flat-panel thing. Is it a type of Happy Box?

glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME, I went out at 1:50 on a 401 to get two more on-sale 6x126 Scotties Kleenex boxes at London Drugs, since the sale expires tomorrow and I was going to be out anyway. While I was there and waiting in the wrong line because this dude decided to delay everyone by not having a coupon or card available OR payment at the ready, I decided to ask the cashier to open the recalcitrant multivitamin bottle from yesterday, just in case. (I'd brought it along to see if Rachel could open it) The clerk could not, but thankfully believed me that I'd bought it yesterday, so I WAS ABLE TO DO AN EXCHANGE WITHOUT THE RECEIPT! PHEW!

Afterwards, I thankfully managed to catch the 414 on Minoru to see Rachel at The Caring Place (talking a LOT about Sandy / banking / disability plans / boundaries), then I rushed home afterwards! I thought I discovered a REDRUM smell after eating a bowl of pasta with straw mushrooms, Prego pasta sauce, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. IT WAS LAUNDRY TIME AFTER THE FIRST PERIOD, JUST IN CASE! (pun intended, hahaha) I also sent Frances a quick "happy birthday" email for tomorrow while I remembered. The Canucks played the Wings at 4:30 today; the game went to overtime, and lost 3-2 in a SHOOTOUT! Now I feel the Monthly Drain Sleep Experience (MDSE) coming on... ZZZZZ...


I used the MOTHER 3 Debug Room (not with any great success...), and here is a double Bateau glitch, preventing Flint from joining Duster atop the cliff in Chapter 1. Flint can't go anywhere else because the original Bateau (the one not on the Wall Staples ladder) will say that Duster is waiting for him!




Flint has rescued Fuel from his burning shack in Chapter 1. They've made it to Isaac's house at the entrance to Sunshine Forest, and have refused to save their game with the Save Frog. "Oh, I see... You know, you're quite pitch black."

glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got on-sale Western Family hot chili con carne, on-sale Silk (dark chocolate) almond milk x2, NEW on-sale Gold Peak Tea x5 (Lemon / Peach / Unsweetened Iced Tea / Green Tea / Raspberry), NEW on-sale 壽桃 Sau Tao Abalone rice vermicelli (which thankfully works in the microwave!), and on-sale Sau Tao Mustard Green Duck rice vermicelli. Also purchased an on-sale 16-pack of Bovril beef bouillon sachets, on-sale Uncle Ben's Canada Rice x3 (Butter and Garlic / Mushroom / Vegetable Medley), Vedan Vietnam noodles x3 (Bah Kut Tea / Mushroom and Artificial Cuttlefish / Spicy Mushroom), on-sale Olympic Dairy yogurt x2 with great expiry dates into mid-November (Peach / Raspberry), on-sale Knorr Sidekicks x5 (Garlic Butter with Lemon / Tomato Alfredo / Creamy Bacon and Carbonara / Chicken / Sour Cream and Chives), an on-sale bag of Munchies snack mix, and on-sale Campbell's Chunky Soup Chicken Sausage and Gumbo.

Then I got NEW Puritan Corned Beef Hash, JOY dumplings x4 (Pork and Tri-Treasure / Lamb and Onion / Pork and Vegetable / Pork and Chive), on-sale Western Family limited-edition Honeycrisp Apple Cider (no law against just taking it from a wheeled moving cart for store use), on-sale store brand orange juice x2, NEW yellow-orange sago pudding (October 28), spicy pig ears (October 28), a can of Fat Choy Brand golden enoki mushrooms (for a colander test later), on-sale SunRype juice x4 (pineapple / mango / raspberry-orange / blackberry-pomegranate), and an on-sale CHRISTMAS backup of a Stouffer's Sauté Sensations meal in Homestyle Pot Roast flavor! After that, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online at home. The Canucks played Arizona at 7 tonight, and lost 4-1. TOO MANY TURNOVERS AND SHORT-HANDED OR EMPTY-NET GOALS!

Thanksgiving! "Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!" "Happy TURKEY EH right back atcha!" "Canadian Thanksgiving is the only prequel that doesn't depress me. Why do you guys eat your turkey a month early?" "Why do you guys eat your turkey a month LATE?" "Touché." "Quit copying! French is OUR second language."




Julie W. sent this to me via Grammarly: Turkeys gobble, Grandma. Turkeys, gobble Grandma. Comma placement matters.

Jeremy emailed me to say that he could make it to Felico's - YAY! Barry called me at 8:35 AM to confirm the time that he'd be picking me up, and 10:15 sounded fine to me. Then Dr. Wise's office called me at 9:05 AM to say that they had "a situation" come up and they'd have to reschedule either today or Monday at the latest. Ugh, fine - make me drink coffee for no reason! :P

The office called me again at 9:45 AM (that was fast!) to reschedule, so I brought up my ride situation, but October 19 at 11 AM should tentatively work. I then called Barry to see if it would since he's going to Japan; since he didn't have his appointment book with him at that moment, he called me back at 10:05 to say that yes, it would. Then I called the doctor's office back to confirm things. Phew, now I can hopefully relax and take Neo-Citran when I feel less awake from the coffee!


Edit at 12: I told Jimmy about finding out that "the situation" was a carjacking downtown, and he tried making me laugh by saying "Car-jacking off." NOT FUNNY IN THIS CONTEXT, BABE! Totally inappropriate, like his Goodwill thrift store "gaylord" slang for a full forklift of donations!

Today is Bad Poetry Day! Eric M. called me at 12:40 to see if I wanted a ride to Boston Pizza for Chinese Eric's birthday hangout: a 1 PM BC Lions game against the Toronto Argonauts! Sure, sounded good to me, especially since I'd been going to leave in five minutes anyway! Of course I brought Chinese Eric's birthday card and on-sale Ritter Sport Dark Chocolate with Peppermint and on-sale Ritter Sport Fine Extra Dark Chocolate, which I gave to him right away! I also figured out that my own birthday dinner would probably be at Kisamos Greek Taverna in Steveston on Sunday, September 23rd. When white Eric and I got there, he checked his texts to see that Chinese Eric was already there. The difference between us and my parents: We don't say anything about Chinese Eric waiting for us at a table already, with his back turned to the door!

We discussed CASTLEVANIA, BATMAN, MARIO movies, Wally Buono / Alzheimers vs. Parkinson's, Travis Lulay, some player named Jonathan, my new glasses, catching up on Facebook, the Canucks, pre-season news, new third jerseys for the Canes / Islanders / Flyers, my new computer, Chinese Eric's helping Jon to move a bit of stuff the other day since he actually took work off for his birthday for the first time in four years. Also discussed "interesting" stories of white Eric's work (that wouldn't be a good thing when it comes to fire alarms and stuff!), the Art Gallery, eating calamari / salt and pepper chicken wings / a large Meateor pizza for the price of a Medium (Chinese Eric took the leftover pizza slices home by default), white Eric paying for everything with his credit card (but I gave him $20 for my portion, which he was fine with), replays, touchdowns, and field goals. When Eric drove me home at 4:15 after the Lions lost, I asked if he could figure out the printer while he was here. Yes, the parking pass / parking permit system is annoying! He got things working, tested things out, and left at 4:50 after I thanked him. No chocolate needed this time! Maybe I'll see him again before my birthday dinner, but who knows? The hot water still isn't back on - THE COLD WATER IS SO FREEZING!

I left at 2 on a 407 for London Drugs. I got 400 Mead index cards / on-sale All-Bran cereal which expires on March 22, 2019 / on-sale Hungry Buddha cocoa coconut jerky / GIBSON owl mugs x2 with easy peelable stickers! When I got home at 2:35 on a 407, I found some water-based Wet Light lube from Mike on July 20, 2014 in a drawer! I threw that away after ascertaining that a possible expiry date on the bottom of the blue bottle was MAY 2017! EW!

Jon dropped off his and Harmony's "old" HP printer at my place at 8:45 this morning since he had to drop the lards off at the airport at 8:30, anyway. He looked at the high amount of dust underneath the computer desk, looked in my fridge, wondered what all those cans were on the floor, and definitely noticed the "museum of noodles" on the couch. His explanation of my needing to practice made sense to me when it came to plugging the square plug into the printer itself.

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: Another silver water mug, 20mL Crest Complete toothpaste with Scope x2 (which expires in May 2019 and can't be opened anyway...), and Carnaby cinnamon hearts which expired on December 17, 2014!

I got two new homemade soaps, a brief note thanking me for my online Twitch support, and a Ness from Earthbound perler from Cuya in the mail yesterday - NICE! I discovered SURPRISE REDRUM this morning - UGH! Good thing I already had a pad in from yesterday's crap! So then I had to go to London Drugs AGAIN to get some much-needed bulk pads, which I should have just done yesterday while I was there anyway... sigh.

Then I had to walk to the bank to get a NEW chip-enabled debit card since the magnetic strip didn't work, and then return the Winter Creek oysters at Price Smart since I forgot that I'd banned it because I couldn't open them even with the jar opener! No, I didn't care that they couldn't resell it! The customer service worker was named Gunya - WTF?! I simply got easier-to-open and less expensive on-sale Mac's Oysters as a replacement (no more less expensive Fanny Bay oysters!), while deciding "fuck this lineup at the express lane" and going to self-checkout instead.

While I was there, I went to the liquor store to get NEW limited-edition Innis and Gunn Mangoes on the Run mango IPA / NEW Hires Cream Soda and Vodka / NEW limited-edition Snapple Spiked RaspCherry Tea Vodka. (the sale on the Snapple ends today!) Got home at 11:05 on a 407 to unload and rest a bit before going out again. While I was not feeling too terrible, I went to Richmond Centre at 2:35 on a 401 for some new shorts since an old pair met with a poop accident.

H and M did not have what I was looking for, and neither did Sportscheck with their Underarmour shorts. I went into Champs, where I lucked into a 2 for 1 sale on shorts, so of course I took advantage of it, buying two pairs of CSG Black Advancer shorts for $38.08! Then I remembered to check out Shoppers for a frozen Pad Thai meal, which they had, and it was even on sale for $3! Finally got home at 4:30 on a 401, deciding not to wait for the 407 in the hot weather with the frozen meal. Then I emailed Chinese Eric to see if we could hang out for his birthday on August 15!

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME (and confirming that Steph got Lisa's and Henry's birthday cards which I'd mailed them), Mom and Dad picked me up for lunch at 11:30 at Dinesty Dumpling House to have hot and sour soup, white surfboard noodles with choy, and siu long bao. They gave me a lot of unsolicited advice about my life (apparently I don't need a ride to the eye consultation since it's not actual surgery AND just need not to look at screens in order to get rid of my cataract - yeah right!), are still under the impression that Steph is going to Beckett's baby banquet, eye doctors, surgery, technology, and said I could get green grapes on sale at Price Smart. I declined the temptation to go there, especially with my mom, so I got a ride home with Dad at 12:40.


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: A white floor lamp (which Dad at least helped me plug in), a forest green and white bedside lamp with pink roses / flowers, an old toaster, candy canes, a half-bag full of candy conversation hearts, a package of Nutella and Go! pretzels, a Mr. Munchy milk chocolate Easter bunny with rice crisps, a box of 12 Quaker Quick Oats instant oatmeal packets which expire in January 2019, a box of 12 Quaker Regular instant oatmeal packets which ALREADY expired in November 2017, eight double rolls of Purex Ultra 3-Ply toilet paper, a black Stormtech fall / winter jacket which will replace my white zip-up Stormtech fall jacket (it's MORE THAN FINE to throw things out which don't work for me...), a purple Tabi International coat, a handmade (?) purple yarn vest, a light brown Paraphrase petite flowery wool vest, a random white comb (I almost typed BOMB), and $10 cash.

Via Facebook messages, Andrew M. apologized for not calling me last night, and we worked out payment for the Windows 7 computer / hard drive / Windows 7 key in writing, which is definitely a good thing. At least I have $200 instead of $150 in that cash envelope, so things can get paid off a little bit faster! Then he called at 7:20 to discuss his not being a robo-call, computer cases on wheels, sound cards, diabetes, coming to Richmond / Memory Express from Coquitlam, having the kids on the weekend and every other one, and cash vs. e-transfers.

I didn't mind if he wanted to drop by, so that's what he did at 8:20. His reaction upon finding out that this computer has 2 GB of RAM via System Tools: "HOLY CRAAAAAAAAAAAP!" We discussed possibly doing that stuff with the computer next weekend, my being welcome to drop by his place while he fiddles with things, a written receipt on the bank envelope, my computer cases, Google Chrome, my Shaw cable modem, my hard drive being compatible with his setup, and more. He laughed when I dropped all the $20 bills out of the cash money envelope, but that was fine!
