After COFFEE TIME, Tryanna from Pathways picked me up at 12:30 today so we could do some food shopping, but I'm fairly sure I lost my voice at some point overnight. We talked about Croatia, her smoking, Pho, tripe, bubble tea, and more. I got bananas, two birthday cards for Jeremy (beer!) and Christon, on-sale Paldo spicy cheese noodles, Dove lemon shampoo, Dove lemon conditioner, Dove hydration conditioner to go with the GLISS shampoo, on-sale store brand Western Family echinacea, Vedan spicy mushroom and cuttlefish noodles, Nissin sesame oil noodles, on-sale Paldo garlic Namja Ramen, on-sale October Fifth Bakery lotus red bean mooncake.

Also got on-sale Chunky Soup (Beef / Vegetable Beef / Chicken Noodle Soup x2 / Clam Chowder), on-sale original Laksa La Mian noodles, NEW limited-edition Doritos Sonic Sour Cream chips, on-sale store brand Western Family white vinegar, Olivina margarine with olive oil, three cans of Fat Choy straw mushrooms, an on-sale Hungry Man microwaveable turkey dinner / a Swanson's turkey pot pie for Thanksgiving weekend, an on-sale Pepsi bottle for attempted toilet cleaning purposes, on-sale Earth's Own almond milk, and on-sale Lipton tomato garden vegetable soup. Tryanna wanted to know if we could have coffee afterwards since they apparently have a budget for that, but I wanted to get my frozen stuff home and focus on resting my voice instead. Maybe if my voice was 100% today! At least she said that she wanted to help me more often if Barry couldn't!

Vanessa came over from UBC after work, so I had MORE COFFEE TIME while she was here, haha. She also took photos of my GOOD TASTE dumplings and my JOY dumplings for me! We talked about the Food Ranger guy on Youtube and his DEATH SPICY HOT POT CHALLENGE, her family, what she got me for my birthday, scary people like Rasputin and killer nurses, GWAR, snacks, borrowing my fridge, opening the Ramnune, Then we were off to Mega Sushi in Steveston for my birthday dinner with her, Christon, Eric M., and Laurie. Turns out Christon and Laurie were there first, but I did explain about the reservation time change. We talked about abscesses, health, brains, getting a ride from Eric for next week's dinner, Willingdon church, livestreaming church services, the Canucks, what I did for my birthday, Brad Best, healthcare in the US, paying for my meal, Eric's card and chocolates, and life. It was pretty fun, and Vanessa dropped me off at 8:50 before heading for home herself.

"Your Autumn Lipstick is Dusty Rose"




You are wise and quietly smart. You often know more than most people, but you tend to keep that to yourself.
You appreciate subtlety in everything. You think most people try too hard, and you always prefer nuance.

You are naturally stylish, and you've got that effortlessly chic thing down. You have an eye for beauty.
No one sees how much work goes into your look, and you like it that way. Your makeup enhances, but doesn't distract.










"You Are Chocolate Frosting"




You're the first to admit that you're a bit old-school, but you prefer the term "classic."
Unlike a lot of modern people, you don't believe in depriving yourself. A little indulgence is a good thing, especially if it's frosting!

You take good care of yourself, and you never forget to look after your loved ones. You are naturally thoughtful and generous.
You are the type of person who likes to work behind the scenes. You don't think of yourself as anything special, but people wouldn't want to live without you.

Eric Ho emailed me this morning to say that he wishes he could make it to the MEGA SUSHI dinner, but they've scheduled him to work a Monet art exhibit at the VAG (art gallery), so he proposed that we hang out here instead for the Canucks regular season opener on Saturday, October 7. Sounds fine to me! I also blocked a stupid idiot who thought that disrespecting my "DO NOT COMMENT" boundaries was FUNNY. Time for some Chicken Alfredo as revenge since that's his name!

After taking a nap today, I noticed that Tryanna from Pathways had called me again a couple of times, and I was able to get through to her after a couple of attempts on my end. She wanted to change tomorrow's appointment to Monday because of possible staffing issues: sure, why not? I can be flexible when ASKED about it and given a chance to decide what I want for myself! Then I realized that this would NOT give Vanessa a chance to take photos of any GOOD TASTE dumplings or JOY dumplings in a bag, so I had to go out at 4:20 on a 401 to Price Smart with my wheeled luggage bag after doing my banking anyway!

I bought Philly-Style Steak and Cheese Bistro Crustini (thanks to Jimmy C. bringing up Philly Cheesesteak foods in Facebook chat), GOOD TASTE dumplings x5 (Beef and Vegetable / Cabbage and Chicken / Cabbage and Pork / Pork and Chive / Pork and Celery), JOY dumplings x4 (Pork and Tri-Treasure / Lamb and Onion / Pork and Vegetable / Pork and Chive), on-sale Western Family Peanut Butter Cups and Chocolate ice cream, Country Beef Pot Roast Stouffers Sauté Sensations, Homestyle Roast Chicken Stouffers Sauté Sensations, and some Chicken Alfredo Stouffers Sauté Sensations because of some Facebook comment mentioning Alfredo earlier. All of that weighed about 11.3 kg, and cost about $93.35! When I got home at 5:20 on a 407 (just managing to get the bus), I changed my RSVP to say that I'd be bringing that peanut butter chocolate ice cream instead for a dessert item! Erik's also just reminded me that Thanksgiving is coming up, so I put a turkey item on my grocery list for Monday.

COFFEE TIME! Christon sent me an Evite to a potluck-style Sunday birthday dinner for him and Jeremy, which I automatically RSVPed to without checking the date. Now I have, and it's October 1 - no hockey conflicts! Maybe I'll just pick up a cake from Buy-Low for the Gwei-Loh right before dinner. The Canucks had Pre-Season Game #4 against the Kings today in SHANGHAI at 4:30 AM, and lost 5-2.

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!

I also mailed something to Julie, and got home at 3:45 on another 401 bus. Laurie is in for the MEGA SUSHI dinner, too! MORE COFFEE!

"You Are Wise"




You are a steady, smart, and savvy person. You can be counted on to keep your head, even in times of crisis.
You spend a lot of time thinking, and you value knowledge. You are constantly learning.

You seek to understand first no matter what. From there, you can lend assistance and support the best you can.
You are constantly growing your perspective. You feel like there is always more to be gained from seeing the bigger picture.

"You See the World as Somewhat Just"




You don't see the world in simple terms. What's just and unjust is complicated.
You believe that justice is sometimes served, both in and outside the courts. But there is plenty of injustice to go around.

You don't expect anyone to treat you fairly or unfairly. You do your best to protect yourself from life's uncertainty.
You consider any justice you receive to be a bonus, but it's certainly not the norm.

Vanessa said she could give me rides to and from the MEGA SUSHI dinner, so now I'm set!


From Not Always Learning: Shannon Willing?! But what if she's NOT willing to do something?! Hahaha! Also, DRAGON! :D




From Not Always Related: Shaye Eller?!




From Not Always Right: Shuu Tsukiyama?!




From Not Always Working: Silverayne Smith?! She thinks she's the high priestess of something, too...




From Not Always Working: Tanith Kamelot?! Isn't that supposed to be TANIS?!

"Your Wine is Cabernet"




You are a resilient and successful person. You have a lot of willpower, and you are more resistant to stress than most people.
You truly appreciate the finer things in life. You are always on a hunt for the best; second place is a disappointment.

You have a strong sense of self, but it's not off-putting. You are well-mannered and can engage anyone.
You could have been very successful taking the traditional route in life, but instead, you've chosen to forge your own path.

I went shopping at 1:10 on a 407, going to Price Smart to get some frozen Sara Lee strawberry cheesecake as my birthday cake / treat to myself, on-sale Zest Ocean Breeze body wash (I'm re-banning Lever 2000 body wash from my apartment), and a little bottle of mango Ramune on Lena's recommendation. Then I went to London Drugs to get 800 index cards (especially since the sale expired TODAY!), black Secret thin socks, and a purple Life Candy shower puff. I got home at 2:40 on another 407, which wasn't too bad!

I talked to Jimmy on FB messages for a good while this morning (which seems to be going well so far), and also Shiv on Discord, who says he's growing more fond of me by the day. Well, I still jokingly think he's a butthead, haha!


Fire beam dragon breath!




From CRIMINALLY LISTED: Kathy Netherland and Samantha Netherland?! Cool last name!




From Not Always Working: Cinthia Tram?! That's not how you spell CYNTHIA...

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.

glowing_dragon: (DarkEyedWolf... sex!)
I woke up at 5:30 AM today for some reason, but went back to sleep about three hours later. Vanessa says that she can come to my sushi gathering, too. Now I'm just talking to Shiv about a bunch of stuff - always good!


From my FAST-ACTING LONG-LASTING Bathroom Reader #18: Naomi Nicely has or had the Guinness World Record for the shortest marriage?!




From Reddit: A mermaid is playing her harp. Then a pirate says, "I don't like the thing you are doing. Can you do a different thing that I like?" Mermaid: "I will fucking increase the fucking thing!"

Vanessa sent me a Facebook message at 5:30 wanting to know what I was doing for dinner tonight. I had nothing planned, but I did wonder whether I had forgotten about something! She wanted to come out to Richmond (either IHOP of Denny's) with her friend Wayne, whom I'd met at her Anton's birthday dinner. Sure, why not? I needed a break, anyway! I took a shower, and they were here at 6:30 or so. We talked about Jason ruining her day by not bringing eggs for her pancakes today, her vanilla milkshake and calcium, my country fried steak / toast / strawberry jam / broccoli / mashed potatoes / sausage gravy, the Richmond World Festival, the military, her pregnancy / potential baby names and gender (not Gertrude / Kathleen), her parents' divorce, Wayne's friend Kevin wanting to marry a full-time Twitch streamer from England, Vanessa's friend cutting off a friendship with a bridezilla named Marilyn who slapped her and berated her in front of a whole crowd of people, our stupid brothers, her parents' divorce, and the changes around Richmond. I definitely needed the break, and got home at 7:50.

From Not Always Working: Mirissa Sorensen?! Her parents should have known that MARISSA is always spelled with an A!




From Not Always Right: Mooshki Mitchell?! Reminds me of a cow... MOO!




From Not Always Working: Naoma Howard?! Shouldn't that be NAOMI?!




From Not Always Working: Nicole Barbee?! This is notable only because it reminds me of Barbie dolls and the Aqua song BARBIE GIRL!




From Not Always Right: Phoenix Gray?! This special snowflake also apparently goes by "they"... really?! Just pick HE or SHE like normal people! He or she goes by "they" - I don't think so!

This morning, it was time to put my shorts away and put another blanket on the bed. Then Jon decided to act like an entitled person, thinking that I could just bus to Commercial Drive from Richmond on my birthday, and threatening me that the kids wouldn't be there if I insisted that the dinner be at 6. Like, do they bug and bully and manipulate Harmony's side of the family into starting dinners at that early hour?! I'm about to cancel this whole idea of a "family" birthday dinner!


Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris finally make it to Jachol in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF. They meet this old man: "Welcome to Jachol, the town with the name that sounds too much like JACK HOLE to be a coincidence."




Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris finally make it to the Jachol Cave in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF. They open this chest to get the Thunder Whip, then decide to check it again. "There's a note inside... The great thief, Lonely Wolf, was here!" This is what happens if you let Lonely Wolf out of the jail in Walse Castle!




SEATH Jackson?! If it's pronounced as SETH anyway, why have the extra letter?!

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

I got a baby intro photo card from Steph and Lisa in the mail for baby Henry - very nice! I'm not going to comment on the spelling of "shenanigans," though! Steph said that Shaun did comment on it, haha!


From Julie S. and Funnyjunk: I deal with my problems by painting over the squares on my Rubik's Cube!
