It's World Book Day today!


From my ARE YOU SHITTING ME book: Boston Bramlage?! The rest of the family had more normal names: Ronald, Rebecca, Brandon, Beau, and Roxanne...




From Reddit and r/namenerds: A London lawyer is named Friday February Eleven Biddle?!

I called Dr. Wise's office at 11:15 because I'd run out of the Prolensa and Simbrinza eyedrops, and I'm starting to really feel a difference. I had to rest today because my eyes felt really weird like they did right after surgery. Luckily, I could pick them up this afternoon (being a Friday) before they closed at 4. I got there at 2:10 or so, and even got them to open ALL the ridiculously tiny eyedrops bottles x4 for me! PHEW!

On my way home, I just missed a Brighouse train from Yaletown-Roundhouse (where I FINALLY found the elevator to bypass the stairs), so I took a Waterfront train to stay on there so I could go to Broadway Station. I went to No Frills where I was confused by the self-checkout machine, which is nothing new. At least I got help! Bought three pounds of Parkay margarine (which I haven't bought since April 25, 2018?!) and President's Choice Kettle-Cooked Jalapeno chips. I stopped by the pharmacy next door after getting off a 401 at 3:40, and also refilled my birth control pills prescription. Everything is done - YAY!

Then Eric Ho FINALLY emailed me back to say that he's glad my eye surgery and recovery are going well, and we can get together around February 26 or a little later. Does he not know what an expiry date or deadline for the Boston Pizza Online offer is?! I want my free Bandera Pizza Bread, dammit! I'll just splurge and order delivery tonight since I somehow have more extra money in my bank account... I don't trust him to not come over before the offer expires. I eventually settled on a medium BBQ chicken pizza (which I haven't had since September 2016), a medium Meateor pizza for 50% off (which I haven't had since the last time I had pizza in August 2018 for Chinese Eric's birthday), and my free Bandera Pizza Bread with dips and cheese. There goes $57!

Here's a News 1130 poll from Ed Woo as of November 22, 2011. (old since it is 2019 now, I know) Should Canadians have the right to be married to more than one person at a time? 58% say YES, while 42% say NO. WHAT IN THE EVERLOVING HELL?!




From Julie M. and JUDGE JUDY: Buffie Deibler?!

I went to the pharmacy next door at 1:30 to refill my prescription, showered, and did laundry today. Then I went to H and M to see if I could get sweatpants. No luck at all, even when I dragged an associate across the store! At least now I have the phone number and (mow that I'm home) the proper tag numbers for my preferred style of sweatpants! 604-279-1811 AND 063 658 68! When I got home and organized stuff, I called the store - they don't have that one because it's popular / best-selling, but will have a shipment in very soon, and said I should call in the late afternoon or early evening. Okay, then!

I got on-sale Arm and Hammer 50-load laundry detergent and store brand garbage bags at Shoppers, and on-sale bulk pads x2 (saving $1 per package) at London Drugs (just missing the 407) before hauling the heavy stuff home at 2:50 on a 401, having to get off one stop earlier because of the road closures and construction! Gotta remind white Eric about that soon... I also found a random Bench / Body men's underwear in her dried laundry. o_O


From Dragons: Everything melts in your mouth when you're a dragon!




Salsa stops by Dona and Jonel's place while the Happy Box delivery is on in MOTHER 3. Dona says, "Do you know how to say MONKEY in English? ... Ahh! I just gave it away!"




I got this error message on Discord this morning. 50 new messages since 4 PM on DECEMBER 31, 1969?! Apparently, it's a common default date for programming. (not for dates, but date-time integers) AKA 0 would be Dec. 31, 1969 at X PM... 10000 would be like Jan. 1 at Y PM. January 1, 1970 00:00:00 UTC was the beginning of time... for computers that use C-based time systems that is. ... which also happens to be 1969 December 31 4:00:00 PM PST. (short version: Someone at Discord screwed up, and it used a time value of 0)

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: (No Netspeak!)
Jimmy FINALLY decided to unblock me and send me a message, saying that he'd fucked up royally and completely - NO SHIT! Later, I fielded an email from Mom about a dinner at Wo's, but she didn't include a date! I had to call Dad to find out that the dinner was on SUNDAY the 22nd at 5:15. Then I messaged Nathan because the email had referenced "his lovely wife" (um, er...), so he thanked me for my sensitivity. Yeah, I don't tell Mom about MY personal stuff, so why would I tell her about my FRIENDS' personal stuff? At least we appreciate each other, and he told Jon to tell her for him! I showered today.


La Royce Lobster-Gaines?!




From Julie: Duran Porrino?! Reminds me of durian, porridge, and Duran Duran!




From Julie: Kolleen?!




Seen on a local ad: Morning Li?!

When I got up today at 7:15 AM, I found that my computer wouldn't go off Hibernate Mode for some reason - I even did a hard reboot of the thing! Then I thought it was possibly the monitor going screwy AGAIN like it did in late April. I went back to bed to rest some more while thinking of the worst-case possibilities in my head (NEW MONITOR EXPENSE?!) and waiting for a decent time to leave a voicemail with White Eric. I did that at 8:30 AM (saying that I needed him to work his magic with my computer monitor again) after I noticed that the light on the monitor was still blue and blinking. He called me back at 9:05 and said that he could come over tonight after work, but I knew he wouldn't be able to make it before 6:45 (which is when I'd have had to leave to meet Chrystal), so tomorrow night is THE TIME OF HOPE! I also found my red chili pants from Sears!

I drafted my August fact statuses on index cards, had COFFEE TIME, and called FYI Doctors to get a final price on the new glasses, even if they had to call the Ministry to find out if I was covered or not. THE PRICE IS $150! Less than the $175 I thought, but still... I left in the hot weather at 2:30 for Richmond Centre, just barely managing to get the 401, and going to KFC in the food court since it's National Fried Chicken Day today. I let the cashier upsell me to two pieces of fried chicken (a thigh and drumstick) instead of one: $2.95 vs. $5.64? Then I went to the library on a crowded 410; I updated CANUCK NATION, Steph, Julie M., Jimmy, Andrew M., and HS's Discord / wondered why Debbie S. would add me on another Facebook account / tagged some statuses that needed it. I swear the Facebook status jail thing is based on IP address! Now I'm leaving to pee and then meet Chrystal for dinner. I hope I don't miss the C94! I also did NOT delete Mom and Dad's old library card number and PIN from my Important Stuff Entry, which is good - I wrote it down in my notebook, and will duplicate it later at home! Good thing they didn't change the PIN! I should have remembered it earlier!

I showered today.

I was NOT impressed with the JOY dumplings freezing into huge unmanageable blocky clumps, so I had to throw those clumps out. Unfortunately, Hester was there and told me that it wasn't allowed to throw it out in the dumpster. Whatever, I can do what I want. I had to walk it to the bus stop and throw it out there before walking back.


Dr. Pitt Derryberry?!




From Julie: Myron?! That's a boy, not a girl.

COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played the Islanders at 4 today, and lost 5-2.


In FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF, the party gets 666 gil for defeating three Water Buzz enemies near the Big Bridge and Tzepish's Castle.




Julie M. saw this commercial for Little Apple Market in Allentown, PA. COOMING SOON?!




In the same Little Apple Market commercial, Julie M. saw this: SENIORS CITIZENS?! Also, "we BAKED our bread daily"?! You mean they don't do it anymore? That's NOT a selling point, people!

Turns out that Tryanna from Pathways was calling me from a private number a lot yesterday, but I finally picked up this morning to see what the heck was up with all those repeated calls. Turns out that she had a cold and couldn't do food shopping today, so we settled on Friday at 1 instead. Auntie Catherine also emailed to wish me a happy belated birthday, and says that we should catch up in the second half of October after her Hong Kong trip with Uncle Y.C. Sure, why not? The Canucks had Pre-Season Game #3 against Calgary tonight at 6, and won 5-3. Time to get some sleep before the Shanghai game against the Kings!


From Reddit: Thongporn Buttasin is a real name?!

After I had COFFEE TIME, I called Kids Physio after Googling the phone number. They actually DID have my red Compass Card because someone found it (presumably in the bathroom), which is a relief! I opted to have them hold it until Ayler's next appointment on Wednesday. Barry picked me up at 12:30 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got on-sale Olympic organic yogurt x2 (peach / raspberry), JOY dumplings (pork and vegetable / lamb and onion / pork and chives), on-sale store brand bottled water x2 for $5, Nature Clean Oxygen Bleach (for $12?!) Body Zone purple / black fingernail clippers, $1 Coffin Crisp / $1 Ghostly Kit-Kats, a Cookies and Cream Kit-Kat, Sour Cream and Bacon Ruffles chips, a peanut butter Oh Henry chocolate bar, $1 store brand Western Family mixed beans x12 (last day of the sale!), on-sale store brand perogies x2 (potato and cheddar cheese / potato and cottage cheese), Koka spicy black pepper noodles, and a can of store brand mushroom pieces. Also purchased some Juzz Mee curry noodles (partly because I told Shiv on Discord this morning I would), Curry Mee white curry noodles, Penang white curry noodles, Silk almond milk x2, on-sale Six Fortune beef noodles, on-sale Sau Tao black pepper noodles, Vedan Bah Kut tea noodles, and pink Excel White gum x3.


From a friend of Ryan's: Just eat it! The Nike swoosh is a pizza slice, hahaha!

Today is National Watermelon Day! :D


From Not Always Friendly: Tonda Creel? She's not even black, so I'm not sure what her parents' excuse is here...




From Not Always Working: Priscilla Kida Ferrari?! I know my sister used to know someone around here called Jessica Ferrari..




From Not Always Right: Ben Household?!




From Not Always Right: Brittany Picker?! What if she DOESN'T want to pick things?




From Julie: Reveca?! That's not even the Jewish / Hebrew version of Rebecca, which would be Rebekah...

I was up at 7:30 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT!


From Tyler A. and the Chive: Janice Keihanaikukauakahihiuliheekahaunaele?!

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?!

I called Uncle Andrew's office at 11:50 AM to reschedule my appointment again because I don't want to miss the DRAGON QUEST block at RPG Limit Break tomorrow! They're also doing MOTHER! The new date is June 6 (a Tuesday) at 4, which should be doable. I took a shower later on, too.


From Krista: Purple nightmare dragon!




From Julie: Gori Julian? That's not a nickname for some long Eastern European name...




From Wesley: I made a huge mistake this morning! While making breakfast, I thought the Kikkoman soy sauce was the Mrs. Butterworth's Original pancake syrup!

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
I tried calling Chinese Eric because I thought he'd called me in the morning, but I guess not! Also heard COPYRIGHT on the radio for the first time in a LONG time, then learned that GOB is from Langley - I didn't know that for some reason! Then he called me while I was in the middle of making spicy beef noodles, which is always okay. *grin* I updated him on most of the stuff which I'd already said in the email, and got away with using the words "dumb fuck" to describe someone, haha. He agreed that I should block Randal after hearing what had happened. Like he and others have said: if the dumb fuck had been nicer, I'd have respected his wishes! I assumed Eric doesn't really care about the notifications; I asked, and he didn't say anything, so this is good. Talked about the advances in technology these days - texting at the dinner table for teens ("gotta update my Facebook status!") is normal, we guess. If you text and drive at the same time, you could cause an accident and kill yourself and others! He also gave me the new cellphone number: only eight digits off!

I figured the cooler weather would be better for his health - not as much heat! - but he still has to bring a jacket to guard against sudden chills. Makes sense to me! Of course, we still think and wish it to be summer, but it is getting colder! I told him that it was cold when we went to see the baby the other day, too. He asked about my weekend plans (his consist of going to visit his grandma), so I told him about the Christon / Jeremy birthday dinner. Yes, he remembered that I'd told him about it already (which is fine), and wanted me to wish them a happy birthday for him. OF COURSE! Seemed he and his mom had just gotten in from grocery shopping, and she noticed my call - Auntie is nice, for sure. Eric asked if I'd had lunch yet: almost! His dad needs to do some work, so has to do a different kind of shopping with him later in the afternoon; that's how it should be, as long as he's not too exhausted later. Told him about how most of the cold medicine stuff was on sale at the store, so of course he reminded me to stock up: already done yesterday, and not in the EXTREME COUPONING sort of way, either! (hahaha) Since his mom was calling him to lunch, I said I'd talk to him next week for sure! Yes, it was nice talking to each other, as usual. :D
