The Canucks played the Kings at 7 tonight, with Quinn Hughes making his NHL debut. The game went to overtime and a shootout, where Hughes slotted in as well. VANCOUVER WON 3-2! I showered today.


From my Endlessly Engrossing Bathroom Reader #22: CORRECT MISPRONUNCIATIONS OF SOME SOUTH CAROLINA NAMES?!




From Julie: Alethea? Is that Ale-Thea or A-Let-Hia?!

glowing_dragon: (French Toast)
The color of the French Toast icon is yellow, and so is the background of Mayor Pusher's house! QUIRKY!


Lucas and Boney go upstairs at Mayor Pusher's house in Chapter 4 of MOTHER 3. They meet this guy. "Well, if you'll excuse me. *hurry* *hurry* *haste* *haste* "




Lucas and Boney go see the train station in Chapter 4 of MOTHER 3 after getting the Carrier Pigeon from Wess, and before running on the tracks to have Mr. T rescue them and give them the Railway Map. "These flowers are well taken care of."




From my UNCLE JOHN'S ACTUAL AND FACTUAL Bathroom Reader #31: Sealy Fourdrinier?! How do you go from HENRY to SEALY?!

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!

Of course I used one of my pink $10 Mid-Autumn Festival gift certificates! When I got home at 1:10 on a 407 after having beef tripe noodles at the Specialty Chicken and Wonton House, I showered.

It's Talk Like A Pirate Day today! Eric Ho also replied to say he could make it to Felico's on Sunday - Gmail now suggests replies for me?!


Gmail's suggested replies...




From ONTD: Liam Payne of One Direction is going out with someone named CAIRO DWEK, and named his son BEAR?!

glowing_dragon: (Crazy-Eyed Bear)
After COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 8:30 AM for my 9:15 AM cataract consultation on Burrard with Dr. Wise. The eye exam was okay, but now I have to go in for an eye ultrasound on September 21! Thank goodness that and September payday are BEFORE Barry goes on holiday. I got him to drop me off at Oakridge Mall, so YAY FOR THAT!


Crystal Patriarche?!




From Vanessa and Stop The World, I Wanna Get Off: Fuk Yu?!

glowing_dragon: (LJ Drama)
I went out early (for me) at 11 on a 407 to London Drugs so I could get an on-sale tall Nescafé coffee canister (December 23, 2016), on-sale De Cecco pasta (farfalle and rigatoni), on-sale Munchies Snack Mix with my last 50¢ (50 cents) off coupon, a Terry's Chocolate Orange / an on-sale Cadbury dark milk chocolate bar / on-sale Ragusa Noir chocolate bar / an on-sale big Jersey Milk chocolate bar for Eric Ho, another on-sale Ragusa Noir bar for myself, on-sale Vancouver Canucks Upper Deck candy fan bags with lollipops / mints / hockey cards x3 (one for me and one for Eric Ho - the other one to be determined - possibly Jimmy's when he gets here in May 2018), on-sale Paterson's Scottish shortbread fingers, Dawn Ultra orange dish detergent, NEW Nongshim SOON Veggie noodles, and NEW on-sale Hershey's COOKIE + Vanilla Creme / COOKIE + Caramel milk chocolate bars. Then it was COFFEE TIME when I got home at 11:45 on another 407.

I found a huge (and somewhat damp) box right by my door. Whatever - at least I don't have to go to the "nearest" Canada Post outlet to pick it up... Oh hey, it's Christmas stuff from Julie! A Peanuts Christmas card, CHRISTMAS HOUSE erasers, Snugadoo Too Super Soft purple striped socks and a red toque, two CHRISTMAS HOUSE jingly necklaces, Hot Tamales Fierce cinnamon jellybeans (better not let the kids have any...), bite-size Tootsie Rolls in a bank, 12 CHRISTMAS HOUSE pencils, CHRISTMAS stickers, and a Christmas memo book with pen!


Pasta and more! )


From Reddit on October 31, 2017: NESTING PARTNER?! I know that LDRs are a thing, but just say that it's the person whom you live with! Also, SearedScallops seems to be involved in more than one relationship at a time. What?!




From Reddit on November 1, 2017: While I can say that ableism does exist because I am a disabled person myself, "creepy" is NOT an ableist term!

And another one because they can fit into the same screenshot when I collapse a bunch of comments...

From Reddit on November 1, 2017: Also, "heavy breathing" is NOT fatphobia! It's the implication that the person is sexually aroused, not that they can't go anywhere without having to catch their breath because they're morbidly obese! Wait - these comments both come from Listen_Up_Slapnuts! That explains something...

glowing_dragon: (LJ Drama)
It's 8:01 PM (20:01 in 24-hour time) on September 11! YAY FOR TIME QUIRKINESS AND COINCIDENCES! :D


From Reddit on June 3, 2016: No, Faith, we do not give our official abusive exes "one last great kiss with tongue" when we're splitting our items post-breakup. You also have a gambling problem ($10,000 in debt to eBay?!) and addiction issues! While those can be fixed / resolved, I hope you never contact your ex again.




From Reddit on July 6, 2017: No, Worried19, cuckolding is not sexist or racist. I'm not a fan of fetishes, but you have some really weird opinions about gender and other things as well, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Since I was up at 8 AM, it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT!

From Tumblr: "Toxic monogamy culture"? REALLY?! Jealousy is normal, and commitment DOES mean exclusivity! Otherwise, how can you say that you romantically love someone AND are committed to them?!




Error message from Facebook a couple of weeks ago: Bad Request: E. Whatever, Facebook.




These special snowflakes decided not to assume their BABY'S gender, and decided that it would be the first person in BC to get a health card without a gender marker. If I asked a parent whether their baby was a boy or girl, and got the answer "I don't know yet," I would side-eye that person really hard. Also, Searyl Atli Doty?!

Last night, I finally finished the tiny sample size bottle of Crown Royal 90% rye whiskey that I got on April 18! You bet I'm keeping this bottle, too! Tonight, I found 24/7 Youtube streams of AMERICAN DAD and FAMILY GUY, so of course I watched some of that!


There's a Willow Grove (Pennsylvania) landscaper named James Brown?! Bonus points: He refers to himself as James Brown, the Godfather of Soil.




There's a provost at the University of Pennsylvania named Vincent Price?! He's becoming the President of Duke University in July, too!




There's a Philadelphia-area venture capitalist named Winston Churchill?!

glowing_dragon: (No Netspeak!)
I got up at 5:45 AM - UGH! COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! Teunis emailed me back to wonder about the nearby mall's hours - maybe he means Richmond Centre, I don't know. He's also one of those weird people who refers to his wife as his partner, but I can deal with that. I found an old spiderweb by the bathroom, so I got two Kleenexes to scoop it up before flushing that down the toilet. Then I put my bath mat through the washing machine, which seemed to be fine afterwards: I didn't even have to dry the thing since it wasn't overly wet later! Then I protected myself with a scarf, rubber gloves, and plastic bag against a mousetrap with.... wood shavings and a very old tiny gingerbread man on it. Okay then. That's enough housecleaning for today!


From Not Always Right: Anisha Cooper?!




From my FAST-ACTING LONG-LASTING Bathroom Reader #18: Treat Williams?!




From Not Always Learning: Brandice Nelson?!




There's a town called Saint-Louis-du-Ha!-Ha! in Quebec...

From AMERICA'S DUMBEST CRIMINALS: A guy named Douglas Duncan robbed Dunkin' Donuts?! Bonus: His accomplice was named Howard Johnson!




From Janina: This gorilla is saying, "HUBERT! JASPER! I am not paying this man to take pictures of you two fooling around! Now sit still and behave!"




From Engrish.com and Library of Most Controversial Files: Sixi roasted husband!

glowing_dragon: (Poop)
From Vanessa and When summer starts, my life is instantly better: A baby onesie that says, "Ah, good sir. I do believe I've shat in my pantaloons." The onesie also features a mustache!




From Laid-Back Corner: 1975 Led Zeppelin vs. 2012 Nicki Minaj?! Led Zeppelin's THANK YOU wins over Nicki Minaj's song about a stupid hoe EVERY TIME!




From Julie: There's an Indycar driver named Will Power?!

I dreamed that Chrissy and I were meeting Chrystal at Awana, and the kids were making various things out of construction paper. Then Vania said she had an announcement to make: "At some point, kids, you stop searching for a man. You realize that sometimes the people closest to you are really the one for you! My cousin Christine and I are now going to be in a relationship!" Auntie Vivian didn't seem to have a problem with that! Then we all went to a buffet which was part of a bus tour, and the guide asked whether we wanted to go to Wal-Mart. When most people raised their hands, she smiled and said that she knew Walmart was especially beloved among the people who took said tour. My cousins Aaron and Lillian came to see Grandma, and a little girl came up to me. She instantly put an arm around my shoulders, and I asked who she was, thinking that maybe she was Aaron's daughter. Nope, she turned out to be Lillian's daughter, and Lillian was together with her long-term partner Lucy. The dream ended when I was selecting six different kinds of freshwater clams / mussels on ice from the buffet... one of them was pretty huge! (complete with lemon slices!)

Triggers: Myles and Brittney's wedding banquet on Saturday (the buffet had mussels), seeing Vania's and Chrissy's pictures on Facebook, and seeing Lillian when she was in town. What the heck is with my subconscious?!

At least I was responsible and paid my Shaw bill... *sigh*
