After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 10:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got NEW on-sale Samyang curry terrorist noodles, Cottonelle toilet paper x2, on-sale Sidekicks x6 (Creamy Bacon Carbonara / Garlic Butter with Lemon / Creamy Chicken Fusilli / Three-Cheese / Homestyle Cheddar / Tomato Alfredo), Ferrero Rocher hazelnut Easter eggs and NEW Easter Egg Oreos for Eric Ho and me, NEW Dark Chocolate Oreo cookies, Crayola Original washable markers x2 (yay for felts!), on-sale Good Taste dumplings x5 (Cabbage and Pork / Pork and Celery / Cabbage and Chicken / Beef and Vegetable / Pork and Chive), and NEW Dawn Lavender Wisp dish detergent.

Also got bananas, Finesse Daily Renewal shampoo and conditioner, on-sale Western Family garbage bags (60 to a box!), Western Family Skyr yogurt x2 (plain and vanilla!), Nongshim Kamja Tang Myun rich potato noodles, NEW Palmolive Soft Touch dish detergent x2 (Almond Milk and Blueberry / Coconut Butter and Orchid), on-sale Uncle Ben's rice x3 (Tomato and Herb / Cilantro and Lime / Southwest Style) and NEW St. Ives Oatmeal and Shea Butter soothing body wash. Later, I paid my Shaw bill online at home. The Canucks played the Senators at 7 tonight, and won 7-4 after practically blowing a 5-0 lead in the third.


Mr. Saturn is a blobfish in real life!

After COFFEE TIME, I perforce met Mom and Dad at Wireless Wave at 4 to meet Walter W. and spend money. I did get some Loaded Potato Skins Ruffles chips at Shoppers for New Year's beforehand! Ended up getting a cellphone, paired Bluetooth headphones, and more stuff. Mom talked AT me, which is normal, but even invited Walter to dinner at Neptune. Maybe to set us up, who knows? Luckily, he said NO since he had family commitments. Thank goodness they drove me home at 7:10, saying that Henry is now allergic to eggs and Lisa is going to Saskatchewan Depot for training from mid-January to mid-May. I confirmed this with Steph later, of course. Mom HAD to use my washroom - fine, whatever. She wondered about the security guard - yeah, that's normal now.


Cruise / missionary trip stuff from Mom, Dad, and Auntie Elsie from church (who thinks the sweaters are "too girly" for her now that she's in her 70s) inside a Ketchikan, Alaska bag: Tabasco sauce packets x3, Bigelow Tea herbal Cozy Chamomile tea packets x3, Bigelow Cinnamon Apple herbal tea packets x1, Bigelow Mint Medley tea packets x2, Bigelow English Breakfast black tea packets x3, Bigelow Raspberry Royale black tea packets x2, Bigelow Darjeeling black tea packets x1, Bigelow Earl Grey tea packets x1 (all inside a Ziploc bag), a red Holland American MS Veendam baseball cap, a light green thin sweater, an orange Ralph Lauren Sport zippered sweater vest, a red Vollmar Made in Italy sweater with grey snowflakes, a white sweater with a gold lion and wide black stripes (not a good idea!), three new pairs of dark fall / winter socks, a thin red sweater with grey wide stripes (also not a good idea!), and a muted pink sweater with grey / black stripes.


Lucas, Kumatora, Duster, and Boney are on the MOTHER 3 Highway in Chapter 7 of MOTHER 3. This sign reads, "Caution! Chimera crossing!" Look! There's even a Reconstructed Lion nearby! Gotta love the alliteration!

Steph let me know that their Christmas card and stickers arrived in the mail today, so that's great! I left at 3:45 to make it to Jon's by 4:30. Knocking on the door since I heard noise from inside, I heard Hiero wonder if it was me. I said yes, Hiero laughed, and Ayler opened the door to me. Hiero said, "Goo-Mah! I KNOW YOU! HAHAHAHA!" Nice! Jon returned the Bible to me (and gave me a black Rampage wallet and some Doritos jalapeno and cheddar chips in a Safeway bag - which expire TOMORROW?! - from Mom), so I simply dropped it off at the Langara Canada Line station when I left their place after a dinner of leftover Chinese food from yesterday's dinner for baby Naomi (Myles' kid and their new cousin - born in early September), and leftover pie / cornbread from Saturday's dinner. Apparently, it was party central this past weekend! Ayler wanted to show me the proper way to draw a star because his teacher had taught him that one-line star, but I can never do those properly. He also wanted to take my Santa hat and wear it (and was successful), even though I said that baby Henry was the only one allowed to wear it, because I don't trust anyone else to just wear the hat without being impish! Ayler also wondered whether certain dates were valid in his perpetual calendar with a tree on it - some were, and some weren't. He knew his own birthday, too!

Hiero wanted me to stay longer, which involves sleeping in his crib. I don't think so! Ayler was also excited about being the special helper (which goes by alphabetical order) in kindergarten tomorrow, telling me that he has to be at school at 8:45 then, and the bell rings at 8:55 and at 12 and sometimes at 3. He also wondered when he'd graduate from his school - not for a while! He also recited the alphabet and said they were writing K tomorrow; when he said "KKK," I briefly wondered what they were teaching kids these days. Then there was a song called MITTENS AND GLOVES. The kids wanted to be very tall, as tall as the ceiling; of course I had to tell them that Robert Pershing Wadlow (the tallest man ever) was more than eight feet tall! Ayler said that he had a friend named Tess at kindergarten (who had a birthday party on Saturday), and someone named Livia, who was different than the Olivia from preschool. Hiero says he plays with garbage trucks at preschool - super!

When Hiero asked why I was cleaning up the puzzle pieces in the back room, I was honest and said that I wasn't in the mood to pick up 200 puzzle pieces again if they wanted to play with it once more. Apparently, Myles got them that solar system puzzle - good times. Ayler wanted to draw on his brother's crib - no, not a good idea! Then he wanted to draw on the floor, then said that it was Uncle Vincent's floor when I reminded him that he probably shouldn't do that. Ah yes, the landlord! At least I got them to draw on the one sheet of memo pad paper that I took into the room along with the toys. Lots of "barns" (I thought Hiero was saying "bombs") and other things were made with the scientific balls and rods! They kept asking why there were sometimes two to four chocolates in an Advent Calendar square, but received an explanation that sometimes it just slides around inside.

Jon's first student (before Randal) was that guy Jeff, whom I had met at least once. When Jon said that the kids might not remember him, I said that one of them had told me that the student was Jeff. Harmony came home after work and adjusted Hiero's buckles - yes, I know Jon technically can't do it since he's teaching, but I never could figure those things out in the first place. I got home at 7:35 on a 407 after having left the house at maybe 6:45 or so, using the open gate to get out and avoid that treacherous step. Woo! I also muted that Eastern Conference Facebook chat with Helen, Jimmy, Tommy, and a bunch of other people indefinitely yesterday, so that'll be good for my sanity as well.


Doritos jalapeno cheddar chips!




Fraser and his "sleeve tattoo" of the stickers I sent his way for Christmas:




After the FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF party defeats Doctor Hiryuu Plant and its Pansies in a boss battle at the top of Hiryuu Valley, Doctor Plant has joined your party!




The FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF party has to sneak into Bal Castle using the moat since the soldiers won't let them in. "Yoink! There was a sword built into the castle wall! Obtained Epee!"
