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?!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE! HAPPY 2019!




I had to transit to King Edward Station to meet Dad there, so I left at 3:50, but had to walk back home because I realized I didn't have my bus pass. Turns out it was in the bathroom by the toilet because it fell out of my pocket! I then got to the station at 4:40, where Dad was already, but whatever. When I got to Jon and Harmony's, it was quiet hours because the baby was sleeping, but we talked to Steph on WhatsApp anyway. Mike and Sandy had been partying past midnight, haha! Ayler was practicing his handwriting and letters, while Hiero was busy punching some snow angels from a special hole punch.

We had ham, vegetables, chocolate cookies, my Loaded Potato Skins Ruffles chips, beer, and potatoes for dinner - they even invited Jeremy, and it was good to see him! He, Jon, and I talked about Origami Joe W. picking fights on Facebook (Jon says he did it on Karen's status about Conservatives to the point where Nancy had to step in to tell him to calm down!), the Reddit post about the rat in the soup at Crab Park Chowdery, Christmas / New Year's (r/wtf and r/vancouver and r/frugaljerk), and Twelve Kings pub with Eric Ho. I got to read about trains to Hiero, talk to Ayler for a bit, then play with baby Beckett, who tried eating his sock / my finger / his indestructible baby book.

Baby Beckett turned over to pick a toy up, which earned him praise from me! I also held him briefly before Dad took him from me. At least they drove me home, but ALSO gave me literal garbage to take to my place! I'm VERY sure the snack wrapper would have survived 45 minutes more in the centre console... never mind the FOUR POUNDS of Rockets, Carnaby tub of Halloween candy (another pound), and random white bra they gave me!


Carnaby (Shoppers Drug Mart store brand) tub of Halloween candy: ONE POUND! Thanks, Mom...




Four pounds of Rockets?! What am I supposed to do with that, Mom?!




After Lucas, Kumatora, and Boney make it to Saturn Valley at the end of the Highway in Chapter 7 of MOTHER 3, they rescue Duster and the Mr. Saturns from the Pigmasks. This one says, "We are fulgrate."




Once Lucas, Kumatora, Duster, and Boney are going to go in the cave leading to the Saturn Valley volcano in MOTHER 3, that same Mr. Saturn opens the door of the house to correct himself. "We are fulgrate is mistake."

DOUBLE COFFEE TIME! I was ready with Eric's Christmas 2018 Almond Roca when he called this morning at 8:55, which I dumped into the backseat when he mentioned Christmas as a reminder. I took an extra 30 seconds to talk to the security guard, who says that he doesn't know how long they'll be posted in the apartment lobby - then I apologized to Eric about it, who didn't say anything much beyond stuff about how he knows the building doesn't have sprinklers. (it would automatically detect fire and BURNING to call 911!) We got to church on time, and I settled into a pew with Myles, Brittney, and Naomi... I definitely hugged Pastor Dan hello and said hi to Joe! Mom and Dad stayed for ONLY the baby dedication, OF COURSE! I said hi to Uncle Joe and Auntie Wing Yee, and waved to Peter, Holly, Evander, Everett, Jon, Harmony, Ayler, Hiero, and Beckett.

After service, I said hi to Lesley / Frances C. (her mom and a possible get-together) / Eva (Harrison's mom - he's now FIFTEEN?!) / Margaret K. / Ivan W. (eye surgery and Sunday Dinner) / Auntie Esther / Harmony (eye surgery support) / Pastor Dan (eye surgery and Sharon being out of town) / Auntie Catherine (hug) / Auntie Cathy (hug) / Emily Y. (Joey in town often and non-profit work for Big Brothers) / Deb (eye surgery support) / Pastor Fulton / Lawrence / Derek C. / Adam L. / Billy (I have the same eyes?!) and Stella (Steph's family) / Rosenda / Sophia / Natalie / Jeff / Anita / Uncle Wayne and Auntie Susan. It was good to see people and say hi... Eric didn't even HAVE hockey because of some international thing going on in that arena, so I got a ride home from him, avoiding lunch with my parents! Of course Mom had my stuff before she and Dad go on a cruise to Cuba and visit Steph's family.

I made sure that I talked to Jon and his crew, of course, patting Beckett's head as I said hi to him. Hiero was playing with a "paper plane," and I helped Ayler with a Nanaimo Bar at the snack table. Eric and I listened to a comedy podcast, then got stuck in traffic to the Arthur Laing Bridge, so we should just have braved the backed-up Knight Street Bridge instead! I finally got home at 12:35 when we'd left the church about an hour earlier... the Canucks played the St. Louis Blues at 12 today, and WON 6-1! I'm just glad that I have unfettered time to blog at my own pace now!


Random (Christmas!) stuff from Mom and Dad, inside a Lush Cosmetics bag: A Spirit "Size 14" thin blue and white pair of pants which Mom thought would "fit" me (ha ha ha... she forgets about the NG butt size!), two random pairs of grey knee socks, Project 7 Coconut-Lime gourmet gum, a pound of Carnaby (Shoppers Drug Mart store brand) Halloween candy and gumdrops in a tub with NO expiry date, a pack of three pairs of women's athletic socks, two pairs of T-Max Heat Holders casual socks (FINALLY, SOMETHING POTENTIALLY USEFUL!), a random pair of white "socks" which don't even fit over my feet, and a Disney Princess Lip Smackers tub in "Birthday Princess" flavor.


Edit: Harmony and Jon emailed me an invitation to an early Christmas Day dinner. Sounds good to me right now!


Happy Hockey Hanukkah!




Project 7 sugar-free Gourmet Gum varieties: Coconut-Lime, Wedding Cake, Rainbow Ice, First Kiss, Peppermint Vanilla, Grapefruit Melon, Front Porch Lemonade, and Birthday Cake! Eight of them, with 12 pieces per package!

I left at 2:30 on a 407 to the liquor store, where I got on-sale Mike's Hard Root Beer x6 and 1.14 litres of Fireball Whiskey. Then I went to Price Smart for orange / cherry / grape Popsicles, assorted New York Style / mango / blueberry / strawberry cheesecake, and a cherry strudel... and was STILL faster than a Chinese lady who complained about slow people on our way out of the store! HA! I got home at 3:30 on another 407.


Mike's Hard Root Beer!




Orange / cherry / grape Popsicles x12!




Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey!




Miracle Crimes did commit crimes, all right...

I've been on Discord for a year now - whee! :D

GREEN TEA TIME AND COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played the Leafs at 4 today; the game unfortunately went to overtime plus a shootout, and Vancouver lost the game 3-2.


From Translink: Sherif Tarek? I think your parents were going for Sheriff, but misspelled it...




Wait a minute. Sherif Tarek is supposedly married to a guy named Cheen Amr?! What?!




From Not Always Working: Cat Xochiquetzal Amanigh?! Maybe he dresses up in drag! Actually, I've learned that he's trans. Fair enough!




From Reddit, AndyTuba, and Buttersafe: This demon says, "You should not have come here, human. Why do you cross through my domain?" The guy says, "I was on my way to the kitchen for a snack, and I got lost." The demon asks, "You ended up in the twelfth plane of torment on your way to the kitchen?" The guy responds, "I am not a clever man."

This computer just restarted!


The Canucks have a prospect named Will Warm?! And his twin brother is Beck Warm?! What if they want to be COLD, like at the ice hockey rink?!




From The Washington Post: Melany Knott named her daughter KAISY Knott?! This actually reminds me of an Asian girl in Daniel Fellowship (1994-1999?) whose name was MELONEY.

"You Are Psychopathy"




At your darkest times, your heart turns cold. You can operate without concern for anybody but yourself.
You may not have a psychopath, but you have the charm and calculation of one. It just depends on whether you want to turn it on.

While psychopaths are dangerous, your cool demeanor can serve you and the world well... if you let it.
Your lack of anxiety means you can navigate emergencies and stressful situations better than most people. Not much gets under your skin.










"You Practice Self-Care Regularly"




You are a pro at self-care, and you make sure to take time for yourself every day. You run on full... not empty!
While some people may worry about putting themselves first too much, you don't give it a second thought. You know what you need.

By taking good care of yourself, you can take better care of others. You have plenty of resources to go around.
If only everyone practiced as much self-care as you do, the world would be a much happier place!










"You Are Tough"




You are deep and resilient. You can get through anything, and you always have the ability to dig deep.
Your good deeds go unnoticed, and you don't mind being part of a group effort. You're happy to work behind the scenes.

When it comes to fashion, you have your own unique style. You update it over time, but you rarely change your overall look.
You dress to work hard and be comfortable - nothing too fancy. However, you also add some fun subtle flair.










"You Are Roasted Vegetables"




You are a bit of a homebody, and there's no better time to be at home than the holidays. You love this part of the year.
You feel the most productive and centered when you're at home. No matter how small, your home is truly your castle.

You live a simple and uncomplicated life. You think the most important thing is to make yourself happy.
You see less as more because you make sure to make it more. Nothing is too small or inconsequential for you to enjoy.










"You Are House of Yes"




Your family tends to prefer a picture-perfect holiday, but you can only fake it for so long.
You've got serious history with these people, and you're not one to brush over the past. Even for Thanksgiving!

You are a bit of an oddball yourself, and you tend to have strong passions. Some would call them obsessions.
Once you get your mind set on something, you're not going to change it. You tend to be single focused.






SO FUCKING TRUE!

I showered and did laundry today.


From Krista: A dragon overlooking his terrain!




From Not Always Working: Sascha Gallardo?! Shouldn't that be either Sasha or Sacha?!




Vesna Vulovic was a Serbian survivor of a 33,000-foot fall after a plane exploded in 1972, and died on Christmas Eve 2016! Yup, she holds the Guinness World Record! I knew a woman named Vesna about 20 years ago, and rarely think of her now.




From Not Always Working: Jørgen Jørgensen?! I know Jørgen is a legitimate name, but it just makes me think of Jergens hand soap. :P
