It's World Book Day today! The Canucks played Edmonton at 6 tonight, and lost 3-2. No comeback like yesterday!


Fucking, Austria?! When the mayor of Fucking, Austria was asked if he would change the town's name, he replied, "Everyone here knows what it means in English, but for us, Fucking is Fucking - and it's going to stay Fucking."

When I went out this morning to test the snow at 10 AM (and discover that Internet data was frozen on my phone), Megan from the eye clinic called me to say that I had a date for my other eye surgery: Wednesday, May 8! I called Barry AGAIN for the third time this week, and he said he couldn't drive me tomorrow since he was at the hospital with somebody. Very valid! I did tell him about the new surgery date and the February 27 eye clinic appointment, so we'll see on that one! Then again, IT'S SNOWING AGAIN IN RICHMOND! I might have to call and cancel the appointment tomorrow morning...

IT'S APPRECIATE A DRAGON DAY! I showered and did laundry today after unpacking. Deb emailed me before the game to ask how it was being home, and say that both the kids were asking about me - cute! The Canucks played Edmonton at 7 tonight, and lost 3-2 in a shootout while also trading Michael Del Zotto to the Ducks during the game.

Guestbook Entry 2018!

December 27, 2018 (Thurs.)

Eric H. (lddude): "Here now for the POST-Christmas hangout with Leslie... it has been a while since I was here. (one year and eleven days) Haha. Hope I can come over more often and enjoy Leslie's company... Happy Holidays! :)"


After COFFEE TIME and SHOWER TIME, Chinese Eric called me at 4 to say he was on his way, so I of course had the keys and the parking pass / parking permit ready! He came over at 5:30 with Stanley Park Noble Pilsner beer from a work party (which he can't have because of his lupus, so he gave the bottle to me) and Safeway store brand Compliments barbecue / Extra Barbecue chips. We talked about the Bassili's Best shepherd's pie, which I actually convinced him to make earlier than 8 PM since it would take 50-60 minutes to cook in the oven! He also had FOUR bottles of water - WOW, SO THIRSTY! I also convinced him to leave the tray for the shepherd's pie while cooking it, even though he was worried about eating the plastic material afterwards. Needless to say, that did NOT happen! At least we found my Alcan tinfoil behind my toaster oven!

Discussed hockey news, Connor McDavid's jersey number corresponding to his birth year of 1997, Dragon Ball bubble tea, Loui Eriksson's six-year contract from Canada Day 2016 to Canada Day 2022, all his Halloween and Christmas candy in a big Ziploc bag, taking the chips (meh at best) home for Auntie and Erica to try, Steph / Lisa / Fraser / Henry, Jon / Harmony / Ayler / Hiero / Beckett, and Christmas stuff. Also talked about Gritty the Flyers mascot, my low-tech blue guestbook, MONSTERS INSIDE ME, the Clintons and Michelle Obama hitting town, water bottles vs. bottled water at work (bottled water is more inconspicuous when slipped into a suit pocket), and Desmond being in Australia according to Nathan. The Canucks played the Oilers at 6 tonight, and won 4-2. Eric left at 8:50 after doing the dishes and watching some GOOD highlights. At least I convinced him to do the dishes, but I should have soaked the dumpling pot before he came over!


5.1% Stanley Park Noble Pilsner beer, thanks to Chinese Eric! We brew our Noble Pilsner with two row Pilsen malt and a distinctive blend of noble hops. This European-style lager has a delicate Pilsner aroma and delivers a soft, crisp taste and refreshing finish. Enjoy!!

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!


A&W Teen Burger!




Butter chicken poutine from New York Fries!

Eric Ho FINALLY emailed me back (my original email being NOVEMBER 23!) at 2:40 to say that given his work schedule and the holidays, a hockey hangout is most likely going to be on either the 20th (Blues game at 7) or the 27th (the Oilers at 6), both Thursdays. Well, let's HOPE so! Then I remembered to call the H and M store at Richmond Centre to see if they finally had my preferred style of sweatpants in - THEY DID! I got the employee to put it on hold for me at the cash register, so I'll pick it up tomorrow sometime!

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!

Rachel emailed to cancel on me today as she's sick - totally understandable!


Windoge 8! Much improve. So amaze. Wow.




From Reddit: I thought the purpose of a shower was to get yourself clean, ThatCatVal... how did you not know this?! Also, how do you not know the difference between LED and LEAD?! This sounds very supercilious and holier-than-thou.




From NHL News Updates: Happy Hockey Christmas Eve! It's the night before the NHL season begins!

I left at 2 on a 414 to the Caring Place to see Rachel at 2. Then I got an eyeball ultrasound appointment this Thursday afternoon at 1:30 at St. Paul's, so I had to look up the transit there. I was home at 3:50 on a 407, which is pretty fast. The Canucks played the Oilers at 6 in the sixth and penultimate game of their 2018-2019 training camp, and lost 6-0 complete with a hat trick.


From Julie: Wisper Joerres?! Her parents didn't even spell it with an H, not that it would have been any better!

glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
The Canucks played Calgary at 6:30 in the fourth game of their 2018-2019 training camp, and lost 5-2. The empty-net goal and their hat trick did NOT help!


From Shelley and Good Living Guide: I finally got 8 hours of sleep! It took me 3 days, but whatever.




From Julie: Audrey Worm?!

glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
I showered and did laundry today. The Canucks played Edmonton at 7:30 in their FIRST game of their 2018-2019 training camp, and lost 4-2. Elias Pettersen seems pretty good, though!


From Julie: Montinese?!




From Cathy B. and Moody and Mouthy: Never pick a fight with a woman older than 40. They are full of rage and sick of everyone's shit. THIS IS SO ME, ESPECIALLY WITH JIMMY'S SHIT!

Barry A. Cook and Kyriakos Gouridaris tried adding me to Facebook - DENIED! Steph called me unexpectedly the other day (the 13th) to vent about Mom and her overly-complicated planning, especially trying to let JON pick the location for MY birthday AGAIN. His kids are not an excuse for everything! Planning with Lisa's side of the family is "we're inviting ourselves over for dinner... boom, done!" She definitely doesn't miss that OR Mom, but does miss me and seeing the boys. Apparently, Mom was trying to get her to come over for my birthday, but if she wouldn't fly over for Beckett's baby banquet last week... at least Lisa, Fraser, and Henry are doing well. I don't care if she can't make it for my birthday, especially if it's just her solo and everyone else isn't part of Mom's "whole family" image! That's offensive!

Then I called Auntie Catherine last night (the 14th), trying to change our Monday plans to Saturday plans like it originally was. Nope, she has car issues and the doctor's appointment is better for her. Well, I felt bad trying to do that, which is something rare for me. Oh well, at least I briefly talked to Chung on the phone, and Auntie Catherine can just meet me in front of Pepper Lunch!


From Hockey Memes: Brace yourselves... the NHL preseason is coming!

glowing_dragon: (LJ Drama)
I updated my Google Chrome to Version 69 - now it has square tabs?! I also zoomed the default Google Chrome font up from Medium to Large, and zoomed the page zoom on LiveJournal and Wordpress from 110% to 125% since the previous zoom seemed to do nothing on those sites - SO MUCH EASIER TO SEE! NO STRAIN!

I also wasted way too much paper trying to print out the 2018-2019 Canucks schedule in an acceptable format and size (and also folded in half properly), especially with the Chrome update. Note to self: NOTEPAD SETTINGS should be Tahoma, at least size 18, LANDSCAPE printing orientation. DOUBLESPACE everything, too! Also, write R for Road Trips and COFFEE after that for games before 6 in brown Sharpie or brown marker!

I reminded everyone via email about the Felico's Greek food birthday dinner plans. Eric said he would be there. Good thing I asked him about a ride yesterday! Deb replied to say that her niece is also having a birthday celebration on the 23rd, said she was also doing the kidney walk that day, and invited me to Alpha at church. Ha! Maybe, maybe not! I also called Chrystal at work at 11:15 to remind her about the Greek food dinner (she can make it!), then Kevin replied to thank me for the reminder. He has a conflict that night, but may drop by briefly to offer his congratulations in person. Sounds fine either way!


From Ultimoice's Moonside Discord server: Billy Idol is saying, "It's a nice day for a light sweater. It's a nice day for a cardigaaaan!!" So true right now... brr!

glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
The Canucks played the Oilers at 7 in their very last game of the 2017-2018 NHL season; also the Sedin twins' last NHL game, and Vancouver lost 3-2 in overtime. There was a very emotional sendoff, and the Sedins were named second and third stars. Then there was the Humboldt bus crash yesterday, which is very sad as well. Sigh...

After COFFEE TIME, I left at 3:25 on a 401 to meet Dad at King Edward Station. Once I got to Mom and Dad's, the kids were busy with some "wet tattoo" stickers on Easter eggs, but I got to read some Gruffalo books to Hiero (who sat in my lap) later on. Ayler held my hand and wanted me to weigh myself on the bathroom scale - I weighed less than I thought, anyway! He's 42.2 pounds, and seemed to like the scale being on E for whatever reason. We had turkey, yams, gravy, stuffing, pomelos, and Brussels sprouts fried in bacon oil for dinner. I didn't care if Mom and Dad had double-booked themselves for dinner, either. Talked about Auntie Grace and Uncle George going to Toronto because Dave and Tiffany are having another kid, Harmony and Jon going to Victoria tomorrow on the ferry with her family, Ayler pressing microwave buttons and putting plastic in his mouth, turning off the various lights, plugging the toilet, and stopping the car on the way to Oakridge Station because of too much noise.

I saw two people hugging each other at Brighouse Station. YOU CAN PICK A BETTER LOCATION THAN THE TOP OF THE STAIRS, COME ON NOW! When I got home at 7 on a 407 (just managing to get the bus!), I saw I had a Youtube comment saying that this person wishes I hadn't mentioned a turkey dinner because it's disrespectful to her as a vegetarian. I DON'T GIVE A SHIT, SO FUCK OFF! Even another vegetarian said that comment was a bit much! The Canucks played Edmonton at 7 tonight, and won 2-1.

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: a small ceramic pan, an apron, various Easter candy, and leftovers x2!

2017 Year In Review!

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 was going to go out today, but there's still too much snow around Richmond! I went out at 4:25 to do some shopping at London Drugs: lots of chips! I dreamed that a bunch of us were going around in mine carts to see Vernon and Joe Yu. Steph sent me an email saying that Fraser was playing with his toy phone at 7:30 their time; she asked who he wanted to call, and he said "A-ma"... CUTE! At 12:35, I called Chrystal to see when a good time would be for us to get together this month. 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!

I went out at 2:30 to catch the next 401 and hopefully check out the Steveston Salmon Festival / Richmond all-day street party at Steveston Village. 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. I went out to Richmond Centre at 11:30 to see if I could get relatively inexpensive new shoes from Payless. I tried opening an Arm and Hammer toothpaste tube today, and it COULD NOT BE OPENED, so I threw it out! I went shopping at 3:55 today after COFFEE TIME: I was planning to get a sandwich, discount Halloween chocolate, and some sensitive toothpaste. I went shopping at 4:15 in the rainy weather on a 401 today at London Drugs for a 4th birthday card for Hiero (cupcakes!), on-sale Arm and Hammer laundry detergent (a 50-load bottle!), 200 index cards, and some big Ziploc bags x2 for a total of 40.

GREEN TEA TIME! The Canucks played the Bruins at 4 today, and lost 6-3, no thanks to a BAD ten-minute (game?) misconduct in the first period which led to three Boston power play goals (two in 23 seconds) - BAD GUDBRANDSON!

Hester dropped by at 8:25 (after being VERY impatient when I didn't answer her knocking in two seconds) to inform me how lucky I was: I'm getting a new fridge / freezer tomorrow! She told her supervisors about it, and it took less than a week! I should have told her about it in May when I noticed something, but I didn't think it was great. Then I took a shower later on.


My ex-friend Marko Velimir Kobak, who's a Leafs fan!

Everyone else goes to the pub after doing some exploring and shopping. They go upstairs to find Faris asleep in a room. Bartz and Galuf go in separately, and then fall in love with Faris. who comes out and says: "What's with the hearts? Come on, guys, Lenna isn't THAT cute!"
