After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 2 to see Rachel at the Caring Place. Last session for April, oh boy! A bunch of us are going to wander around Main as well. Gotta get ready to meet Paulo at Starbucks!


From Reddit and r/TrueCrimeDiscussion: Alesha MacPhail?! Makes me want to pronounce it ALE-SHAH, not Alicia... BAD SPELLING OF ALICIA!

Yesterday, Holly invited me to Steveston Pizza at her place tonight. Nobody was going to have the $850 pizza! ("SEENAY: Medley of tiger prawns, lobster ratatouille, smoked steelhead, Russian Osetra caviar, snowed with Italian white truffles $850") After I showered and had COFFEE TIME, Brian kindly picked me up at the hospital at 7:10 even though the pizza place was way closer to his apartment. We chatted about the expensive pizza (a MOUND of seafood on the order before his?!) and the NHL Draft Pick Lottery Day before getting to Holly's, where I unsuccessfully completed a call to her. She wanted to throw her keys down to us again, but actually answered the door instead once she realized Brian had five pizza boxes.

I said hey to Darryl and Paulo, informing Paulo that the temporary crosswalk was now closed off. He put his head in his hands and said, "I hate it..." Trust me, I understand ANY ranting he has to do on the issue! We all talked about life, Vegas, walking a lot on the LONG Strip blocks, online people, chatrooms, drunkenness, dodgy stuff, seeing family members, work schedules, Holly's new job starting tomorrow, dead people, being a travel agent, working with the general public, and upcoming plans. As usual, I have none. I did almost forget my jacket, oops. Darryl called me by name when we said bye to him outside, which shouldn't really be a surprise. Brian dropped me and Paulo off at about 9:40, which is pretty good. I actually have time to blog without being rushed off to do other things!


Alpha Omega Nickelberry III?!




FIRE PIZZA at Steveston Pizza: Pepperoni, capicolli, roasted pimento peppers, and fresh jalapeños!

GREAT - I JUST GOT A BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH, ACCOMPANIED BY A HORRIBLE NOISE!


Holly mentioned that she was near me this morning for an interview at WorkSafe BC, so I noted the proximity. She asked if I wanted to do lunch, so after checking in with myself, I said yes. I finally left the house at 12 or so. Turns out she saw me at the 401 bus stop at Alderbridge, so we waited together and chatted about her interview, the questions, and how my morning was. Yup, Jimbo would have something to say about a certain person being invited to our chat when he gets back - we should have put it to a vote!

We finally made it to Edo Japan at the Richmond Centre food court, where I had a chicken chop chop bowl and she had some boring cucumber sushi. Talked about Brian, Jeremy, Darryl, Paulo taking a mental health break and needing to talk to someone, rage-quitting, Bath and Body Works, our birthdays, Chinese Eric's lupus, the chat, going to H and M later so I could convince her to get the cute and fun HOLY MOLY GUACAMOLE! thin sweater she'd seen earlier while killing time, encouragement of certain thoughts, a Froshberg Gelato ice cream (her treat - I got Nutella and White Chocolate and she got Pistachio), plus maybe going to the Steveston Canada Day festivities / Cherry Blossom Festival in the summer. When she found out that the next 401 would be in 16 minutes at Brighouse, she said that she was glad to wait for my bus with me, otherwise I'd be bored. No, I had my book and my thoughts! Turns out she did know Bryce Courtenay as a famous Australian writer from back home, but didn't know he'd been born in South Africa. I got home at 2, and was exhausted and drained. NO MORE GOING OUT FOR ME ANYTIME SOON!

From Julie: Some people - "Live, laugh, love." Me - "Pizza, tacos, bacon!"

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
Brian picked me up at about 9 last night from the hospital's main entrance, but I had to take a gigantic huge detour because the construction had blocked off the sidewalks right by my place AGAIN! (going through the parking lot and then find the sidewalk by the pharmacy and then cross THREE crosswalks to get to the hospital) He had joked that it would be like Little Iraq trying to get to my place, and this was about right. The chill get-together was for Paulo's 27th birthday, so of course I was going to come out and meet him. Things were fine until we tried finding Fremlin, but I eventually called Holly (who doesn't have a buzzer system or an elevator in her apartment building?!) when Brian eventually found it. She said that she was going to throw her keys down to us, probably because she was tired of going up and down the stairs for everyone else!

When Brian finally figured out the front door lock (the one in my building is recalcitrant as well), we went upstairs to Holly's suite. We met Paulo, and said hi to Holly and Darryl. Talked about bartending, gin and tonic, red wine, beers, smoking (always someone's choice), travel (Jordan and Egypt and Australia), the leftover pizza with pepperoni and sausage, online people in the other Discord server, Gastown, awful dates, hyphenated names, feminism, the 407, friends being in abusive relationships, weird names like Jesus Condom, the closed sidewalks around my place, (looking for) work, Long Island Iced Teas, (video) interviews, San Francisco, Montreal, fudge Oreos, and my Korean BBQ Kettle chips. Of course I let Holly keep them! Turns out that Paulo lives two minutes from me, which is always good just in case. I let Brian drop me off at Birchwood instead of Dogwood, but I was still with it enough to figure out where I was since things looked different. Got in at midnight, which is fine. Good times with FREEDOM!


From Dragons: Luck of the Irish dragon!

From Julie M. and Realm of the Witch: If you're going to make me out to be something I'm not, it'd be cool if you'd make me a dragon. Thanks.

Julie said that she got my stuff today, so of course I had to chase people down and go into that Eastern Conference chat to see if Jimmy got his stuff, sent when I was feeling fine about our friendship or whatever. He had, and merely thanked me.


DO NOT TELL ME WHAT TO DO! )

In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo go up to yet another Onett meteorite at the hilltop. They see the Bread Roll gift box, which now contains a Large Pizza instead. Then they talk to the nearby police officer, who had wanted to take the box in for questioning. "You can't just take the contents of the box like that! That's evidence!"

At 2:45, I went to the pharmacy next door to check on the status of my new birth control prescription since I only have a week's worth of Minoral. The new pharmacist said that I could pick it up tomorrow afternoon, which is good! Vanessa sent me a Facebook message at 4:45 to say that her doctor changed her appointments to 10:15 and 2:40 on Wednesday, so she'll just hang out at her parents' place instead. That's definitely a relief! With that in mind, I showered tonight instead of having to do it two days in a row later in the week.


Steph sent me the photo of me and my oversized Santa hat on baby Henry at Western Lake restaurant on Saturday!

From Krista: Green dragon fire!




In EARTHBOUND, Ness and Paula are done in Twoson, so the Runaway Five offer to give them a ride on their LOUD tour bus through the ghost-infested tunnel to the spooky town of Threed. "Hey, sidewalk! Get out of my way!"




In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo meet these aliens in Onett. "TACOS TACOS TACOS TACOS! Where are my walnuts?"




In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo are in the Onett drugstore. They decide to check out the Taco that they just bought. "A very tasty-looking taco. A little splash of lime juice would make this one perfect."

I left at 2:30 in warmer rainy weather for my appointment with Dr. Ruby, just managing to get the 403 from Brighouse. Yeah, I know the Minoral generic is strong, but it isn't helpful if blood breaks out anyway! After getting yet another new prescription, I went to Big Crazy for a $5 bag of pork and tri-treasure dumplings, then to London Drugs for an emergency birthday card / on-sale Brookside chocolates with pomegranate for Jon / a Bic whiteout bottle which I had to get another customer to unscrew / "buy one get one free" Flipz white fudge-covered pretzels. Then I went to the pharmacy next door on a 407, where I learned that I have to wait for the new pills, and also that the manager's name is Adam. That's fine - I got home at 3:55, which was somewhat surprising!


Flipz white fudge-covered pretzels!




In EARTHBOUND, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo go to the Fourside Museum so they can talk to this academic researcher. "... You know, there's a new singer named Venus at the Topolla Theater."

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


In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo decide to check out this jelly doughnut that they found in an Onett trash can. "A delicious-looking jelly doughnut, of the variety favored by police officers."




In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo decide to eat the jelly doughnut that they found in an Onett trash can. "This doughnut was fished out of a trash can. Do you really want to eat it?"




In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo get a Ninja Box in Onett. They decide to check it out: "It feels quite heavy, as though it were full of solid awesome."

In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo encounter the Ninja Starman on their way out of this Onett building. He wasn't there before! "Negative. Your presence here is undesirable. Prepare to be exterminated in a totally sweet fashion."

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. The 401 stopped at the lards' old townhouse, so I decided to check out the 7-11. I got two bags of NEW limited-edition Mojo Citron Doritos Dinamita sticks before walking to the Village. While there, I checked out Super Grocer: I got some NEW Maple Bacon Kettle chips. I explored the community centre, saw Cimona's / Timmy's Kitchen / Timothy's Frozen Yogurt, looked at a lot of tents, checked out a live band on a stage, and decided not to buy anything since I was planning to go to London Drugs. Thank goodness that the 407 was still at its "special events bus stop" after I saw the back of the bus while walking along Steveston Highway! At London Drugs, I bought Pik Nik Original potato sticks (which turned out to be bland) / Pik Nik Sea Salt and Vinegar shoestring potato sticks (SALTY!) / replacement thin Secret bamboo socks / on-sale large store brand Ziploc bags / 200 small store brand Ziploc bags before getting home at 5:20 on a 407. I now have a large Ziploc bag full of small Ziploc bags!

It was COFFEE TIME this morning at 8 AM since I had maybe six hours of sleep!


In MOTHER 2 DELUXE, Jeff Andonuts makes it to Dr. Andonuts' Lab south of Stonehenge. Look at this glitchy Sky Walker! You should see it when it's flying to the town of Threek... thank goodness it worked to fly in when I exited the lab and entered again for a better version of the machine! I see a bit of an Instant Revitalizing Device!

In MOTHER 2 DELUXE, Ness / Paula / Jeff finally make it to Fourside. They meet this garden-variety mole, who tells them that even PPK Spirit can be dodged if the target has enough Speed. Luck and Speed are much more important stats in this game than the original, that's definitely for sure!

At 12:35, I called Chrystal to see when a good time would be for us to get together this month. The move apparently did not go smoothly last week, as Emily's still organizing a bunch of stuff at both places. I didn't mind meeting at the end of the month, as it gives me more time to NOT feel rushed: Friday the 26th at 6:30 sounds good to me! Yeah, I suggested that she write it down somewhere after the phone call so she'd remember, haha. I did also tell her to say hi to everyone, and tell them that I hoped everything else would go well. Then I went out at 3 on a 401 to London Drugs so I could get 200 Mead index cards, a pair of replacement black Secret relaxed fit socks since ANOTHER pair had holes in them, a MACHINE-WASHABLE taupe Splash Softee bath mat to replace the one from 29 January 2015, NEW Uncle Lee's organic white tea, and NEW Uncle Lee's organic green tea. I got home at 3:45 on a 407, so that's good.


Ness and Paula go home to Onett in EARTHBOUND, and go to Tracy's pink room. Tracy says, "You also got a new girlfriend? Your adventure must have been pretty good!"

From Candy: If you can't win an argument, correct their grammar instead.




In MOTHER 2 DELUXE, Jeff and the Balloon Monkey meet Brick Road, who wants to become Dungeon Man. There's a Gruff Goat and an iron pencil nearby. You need a Pencil Eraser to get rid of the pencil.




In MOTHER 2 DELUXE, Jeff and the Balloon Monkey exit the sanctuary of the Rainy Circle Cave. There's a girl monkey outside! Balloon Monkey: "Kye uki kukyi... (Now she's my type...)"




In MOTHER 2 DELUXE, Jeff decides to check out the entrance to Stonehenge. For some weird reason, something that looks like a very large iron eraser is in the way.




Later on in MOTHER 2 DELUXE, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo / the Super Plush Teddy Bear make it to the Stonehenge entrance. Jeff uses the Eraser Eraser. For some reason, the iron eraser statue disappeared in an instant!
