I called Chrystal at work at 12:30 - to my surprise, she was on reception duty! We made plans for her to treat me to a belated birthday dinner on Friday the 13th; we'll meet at 7-ish at the London Drugs near Broadway Station. Sounds good to me!





"You Are Not Charismatic"




You are not a born performer, and there's a good chance that you are more reserved than most people.
What you lack in charisma, you more than make up for in humility and honesty. You are content with who you are.

You are not big on seeking the spotlight. You usually prefer spending time alone to shining in a crowd.
The kind of socialization you crave tends to be one on one, deep, and authentic. You see beneath the surface.







A bunch of funny FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF Ability descriptions!

From Not Always Working: Kristeen Borrowman?! That's not how you spell CHRISTINE or KRISTINE...




From Not Always Learning: Krysteena Foster?! That's not how you spell CHRISTINA or KRISTINA...




From Not Always Right: Kiki Lee Cooper?!




From Not Always Working: Lany Chabot-Laroche?! Shouldn't that be Lanie?! Reminds me of a miscellany and Almond Roca... but hey, CALVIN AND HOBBES! :D

After (MORE) COFFEE TIME, I left at 11:40 AM on a 407 to make it to Jon and Harmony's at 12:15 or so. Apparently, nobody was home, but I heard Ayler's voice a couple of minutes later from the car. Jon made a comment about my San Francisco shirt - yeah, it's pretty noticeable, but I don't care. I entertained the kids while Jon went to Anna's Cake House to get various bakery items for lunch before his violin student Justin came over. They wanted me to read a Chinese vocabulary book and a RUN SALMON RUN book. I helped the kids eat lunch, and made Hiero eat some pork bun to get some protein. No, you're not eating a "meal" that is 98% cantaloupe and cherries! Ayler kept asking me what time Harmony would be home if she was in Kerrisdale or UBC since she got off work early; no idea! Harmony did get home later, when Jon was teaching and telling the boys to listen to me. At least I told them that fact about the 35.4-mile tunnel in Sweden, to which Ayler's only question was "how many hours does it take to get there?" Probably a long time! Harmony mentioned that Ayler had physio, so I could keep Hiero occupied with the toys there. Sure, why not? I sat on a chair there and it BROKE! The owner (Laura) came out to see whether I'd fallen, and the receptionist and other people there seemed concerned too. Apparently, it was a hardware fault which should never have been there. Maybe, maybe not!

We talked about roller coasters and "BUS!" (lots of 8 Fraser buses!) on the short walk to Robson Park from the physio clinic. While there, Ayler wanted to take some other little girls' grapes AND toy buckets! We got a bunch of Vietnamese sandwiches for dinner so we could have something besides blackberries. If Hiero had his way, he'd eat 90% blackberries for dinner - NO! Ayler asked how many hours it would be until I left, then wanted me to stay seven more hours at 7 PM. No, because you'd go to bed soon, and I want to definitely be home way before 1:30-2 AM when the trains and buses stop regular service! When Jon was teaching a piano student named Curtis, I helped to keep Hiero occupied with the "tunnels and arches." I actually got home at 8:05 on a 407, which is relatively efficient at least!


From Krista: A dragon breathing lightning!

Since I was up at 8:20 AM, it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! Later, Lucas thought that I was bullying Maddie because I've taken to using the word "sriracha" around her since her Discord screen name is "Maddie the Jirachi." Not my fault that they sound similar! They're both special snowflake teenagers! So then he banned me from his Discord server partly because he thinks that my bringing up the age difference is "pretentious" - hey, it's definitely not my fault that their 18-year-old brains haven't fully developed yet! Later, Alexandra FINALLY broke up with him for not telling her what was going on with him, and I let her know that he seemed controlling and narcissistic as well. I showered tonight.


From FreeThought Blogs on May 30, 2017: "How many intersections can you cram in one feminist? Trans, queer, leather girl, poly, sex-positive, survivor, political anarchist, and of course, atheist." THOSE ARE NOT INTERSECTIONS! I see no street signs or traffic lights in that description!




From Affinity Magazine on April 17, 2017: Misgendering transgender people is NOT violence or psychological abuse! Just ask the people who endure(d) REAL violence or psychological abuse!

After seeing KFC referenced on Not Always Right, I decided that I had to go out and get some for lunch at 2:10, just managing to get the C94. I got a six-piece combo for $10.50, and the price and quantity was better than what I was expecting! Before that, I went to Indigo Spirit / Chapters to browse, and got Strange History (Bathroom Readers' Institute). I even asked about getting a replacement Plum Rewards card (like I did last time I was there), and actually got one! HA! to the clerk last time who said they didn't have any more physical cards! No, I didn't get a bookmark, but I have plenty of spares here at home. I got home at 3:10 on a 407, and now I want to make a Facebook album devoted to the books I've read or owned. Getting all the book covers will take a while, but Goodreads will make the whole process slightly easier!


From Krista: Sea serpent dragon capsizing a ship!




From Janina: Hey, Laser Lips! Your mother was a snowblower!




From Julie S. and Snapchat: A foul festival with food?! Also, a steamed vegetable item on a menu includes SWEET PORN?!

I just got another blue screen of death, which took me twelve minutes to fully recover from!


From Julie: Meleeza?! Is that supposed to be MELISSA?!




Here's the sign for the interpretive centre in Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, Alberta!




My ex-friend Fiann apparently bought some False Elephant Snout in a can from Golden Brand...
