Before COFFEE TIME, I called Chrystal to see what time we should meet tonight; 7:30 sounds good to me! I went out early at 5:30 to see if I could get that dragon hoodie at H and M after figuring out all the sidewalk and bus stop closures. They were all in a Medium size, but I figured that I'd make it work somehow. I didn't even care that I couldn't exchange it or get a refund since it was on clearance! $15 off - from $39.99 to $24.99! Then I went to the nearby London Drugs, then to the Broadway / Cambie London Drugs. Figured I'd spend my $75 tax refund while I was out and could do stuff, and I did! Now I have to wait for the April credit to go through, ha ha ha...

As I was reading an ARCHIE book, Chrystal came up to me - she was on time today! I told her that I had a birthday card for her, and not to worry about the rest of the stuff in my bulky reusable bag - that was all for me! We went to Pho Extreme Xe Lua to catch up: her parents going to Dubai pretty soon, Ethan and Mike being sick with the flu, my new Reddit friends, the whole Woob and Twitter screenshots saga, Benjamin being about the same age as Beckett, Beckett screaming as loud as the 80s music inside Como Taperia, and her knowing that I liked spicy stuff. After dinner, I went home instead of joining Brian, Paulo, and others at the American. I did stop by Shoppers Drug Mart when I got to Brighouse so I could get the aforementioned chips and dip. Got home at 9:10 on a 401, no thanks to MORE complicated sidewalk closures! They did make a temporary crosswalk near the intersection at my place, though.


From Sara and BrazilFlair on Tumblr: Here’s my first attempt at synonym rolls. Just like Grammar used to make!




Lots of dips! Lots of chocolates! FOOD TIME! )

I went out to London Drugs at 12:15 on a 414 (just missing the 401) to get Gillett bar mop towels x4 (I haven't bought them since January 2017?!), on-sale $2 Arm and Hammer All-in-One Complete Care Whitening Gel Toothpaste baking soda toothpaste with gel, on-sale Seventh Generation dish detergent (Free and Clear / Lemon), and on-sale Palmolive dish detergent (Green Apple and White Lily!) - I got home at 1:05 on a 401. The Canucks played the Hurricanes at 7:30 tonight, and lost 5-2.... UGH! I also showered tonight.


Final score for "That was definitely not a joke" Reddit comment: 2036 points!




Arm and Hammer All-in-One Complete Care Whitening Gel Toothpaste in Fresh Mint flavor!




More toothpaste and dish detergent here! )


Lucas, Kumatora, Duster, and Boney make it to the Highway rest area in Chapter 7 of MOTHER 3. They stop by the restrooms. This guy tells them, "Well, it turned out this wasn't a ramen shop."

From Julie: UNDERCOVER BOSS did an episode at the company Oriental Trading, and Sunday School starts on SETP. 11?! What?! CHECK YOUR SPELLING! BAD SPELLING!

After a flurry of emails last night and my COFFEE TIME this morning, Dad called me at 10:35 AM to say that he'd made an appointment for 2 tomorrow with Uncle Stanley's lady associate at Kingsway and Slocan. ("as you know, Uncle Stanley isn't feeling well..." Nope, I did not know that!) He and Mom will take me out to lunch beforehand, so they want to pick me up at 12. Fine, I guess! At least I don't have to bus all the way there! Not that I had to bus to Auntie Anita's Royal Bank location when Steph and I set up the plan originally in 2009! Thank goodness I have whiskey at home for later, hahaha.


From Reddit on September 21, 2018: Learning disabilities do exist. Discrimination against the disabled also does exist. I don't think an insistence on correct spelling is ableist, Frothulhu… also, you are "non-binary" according to your subreddit flair, so you need to PICK A GENDER AND STICK WITH IT! Much easier for everyone else!

"You Are Psychopathy"




At your darkest times, your heart turns cold. You can operate without concern for anybody but yourself.
You may not have a psychopath, but you have the charm and calculation of one. It just depends on whether you want to turn it on.

While psychopaths are dangerous, your cool demeanor can serve you and the world well... if you let it.
Your lack of anxiety means you can navigate emergencies and stressful situations better than most people. Not much gets under your skin.










"You Practice Self-Care Regularly"




You are a pro at self-care, and you make sure to take time for yourself every day. You run on full... not empty!
While some people may worry about putting themselves first too much, you don't give it a second thought. You know what you need.

By taking good care of yourself, you can take better care of others. You have plenty of resources to go around.
If only everyone practiced as much self-care as you do, the world would be a much happier place!










"You Are Tough"




You are deep and resilient. You can get through anything, and you always have the ability to dig deep.
Your good deeds go unnoticed, and you don't mind being part of a group effort. You're happy to work behind the scenes.

When it comes to fashion, you have your own unique style. You update it over time, but you rarely change your overall look.
You dress to work hard and be comfortable - nothing too fancy. However, you also add some fun subtle flair.










"You Are Roasted Vegetables"




You are a bit of a homebody, and there's no better time to be at home than the holidays. You love this part of the year.
You feel the most productive and centered when you're at home. No matter how small, your home is truly your castle.

You live a simple and uncomplicated life. You think the most important thing is to make yourself happy.
You see less as more because you make sure to make it more. Nothing is too small or inconsequential for you to enjoy.










"You Are House of Yes"




Your family tends to prefer a picture-perfect holiday, but you can only fake it for so long.
You've got serious history with these people, and you're not one to brush over the past. Even for Thanksgiving!

You are a bit of an oddball yourself, and you tend to have strong passions. Some would call them obsessions.
Once you get your mind set on something, you're not going to change it. You tend to be single focused.






SO FUCKING TRUE!

FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF Bestiary!


THIS ENTRY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NON-ALIGNED TAGS.


This is the complete bestiary for FINAL FANTASY 5 SPOOF, and all screenshots are from my own playthrough. I'd like to say that this GameFAQs bestiary document helped me a lot; thank you! (as did this one, for more precise directions in certain places) Also, this walkthrough helped me a lot, too! Actually, I was tired of suffering through emulator slowness and game glitches x8, so input a code for a 100% complete Bestiary. These maps will help, since the world map DOESN'T FUCKING WORK IN THIS GAME!

This is a good RPG Classics page for Pro Action Replay codes!

CHECK THE MAP WITH THE Y BUTTON, NOT THE R BUTTON!

Fire-Powered Ship puzzle directions.


Notes to self: Activate the All Characters Have All Abilities code, and then TAKE IT OFF, or else the game will get incredibly frustratingly SLOW. Also, take all codes off before going to the Big Bridge, or attempting to find the Phantom Village! VISHNU VEST EQUIPMENT! Speaking of equipment, EQUIP KRILE WHEN SHE JOINS THE PARTY AFTER GALUF'S DEATH! As far as codes go, the "have 99 of all items" code makes the game freeze and have sound issues!

After much frustration over three hours, I managed to defeat Omega by using the power of Mirage Vests (IMAGE STATUS) / Coral Rings (fire protection), and a pre-emptive strike! I used it to power up my blades with Thundaga Spellblade, then used Rapid-Fire on Faris... I think it was a fluke!

Also, to reset the breath timer in the sunken tower of Walse, climb up the fourth floor vine to get to that chest! I finally actually defeated Famed Mimic Gogo at the bottom of the sunken Tower of Walse by using the Dragoon / Dual-Wield x4 strategy! It was pretty tricky since I wasn't sure that all my characters would survive at least five Meteor attacks, but two of them did! Got garbled text as part of the bugged fight, too... "Dragged into another dimension! Odin: All right, that's far enough! Turning to stone... Can't escape! Countdown to Pestilence... 4 KO'd! Countdown to Eruption... 5 KO'd! Level halved! KO'd!":D

To get the Drakenvale Golem in the Bestiary, defeat the dragons first and THEN defend until he thanks you!

Stick "READ AHEAD" on a character other than Lenna! To prevent having to input all the codes over and over again, SAVE / remove all codes / then close and reopen the emulator! They should all still be there!

For the Moogle in the Forest of Moore to move after the trees have been set on fire by Tzepish, save the game in the cave and then reset. The creature should NOT be blocking the entrance.

Airship in World 3: It's just above Surgate Castle, east of the Pyramid.

DO NOT SET ANY "No Random Encounters" CODE! IT WILL GLITCH OUT THE GAME! (submarine / world map won't work, and there WILL be no random encounters)

TRY DEFEATING NEO SHINRYU FIRST BEFORE OMEGA MK. II - or else you can't get out of the room for some reason! (the exit door SHOULD be open, but is shut tight instead!)

Steph and Fraser called me at about 1:10 PM today, which was at least a fine surprise. Fraser said that he was eating apples and crackers, and could answer "yeah" when prompted to answer my various simple questions about whether he liked the zoo. I said that I would hopefully be having dinner with Chrystal at some point, would go to Jeremy's for that Jacob's Well fundraiser, mentioned that I'd seen a PEPPA THE PIG book at London Drugs (they have a whole set), said that Hiero needs to eat more protein (1.5 tiny mandarin oranges is not really a proper dinner...), said that Ayler now understands the concept of a square root! Steph said that Sandy still had her food truck breakfast business, mentioned that Fraser could definitely go in the pool with help and supervision later in the year (I can see the older kids not paying attention to him!), says that Fraser likes watching the older kids to observe what they do, and had to go when Fraser wondered why Lisa was in the washroom after getting home. At least Fraser seems to be settled in now at his new (smaller) daycare!


From Krista: A dragon in space with a sun flare!




From Dragons and Frenetic Funnies: "That was both disgusting and embarrassing. We breathe fire at our enemies... BREATHE!!!" The red dragon has farted fire at the knight instead, hahaha!
