THREE DRAGO FANGS! By inputting the MOTHER 3 Code cheat 0200429F:AF, you can modify Duster's 16th item to be Flint's Drago Fang. I hacked it into his inventory, and tried "using" it. The game says, "This isn't the time to use that." Hahaha! I wondered if I could just give these three Drago Fangs to the Item Guy in Chapter 4 later on… so I hacked two Drago Fangs into Lucas’s inventory (Code cheat 02004233:AF), AND I COULD! NO MORE ENCUMBRANCES!

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME, I went out at 1:50 on a 401 to get two more on-sale 6x126 Scotties Kleenex boxes at London Drugs, since the sale expires tomorrow and I was going to be out anyway. While I was there and waiting in the wrong line because this dude decided to delay everyone by not having a coupon or card available OR payment at the ready, I decided to ask the cashier to open the recalcitrant multivitamin bottle from yesterday, just in case. (I'd brought it along to see if Rachel could open it) The clerk could not, but thankfully believed me that I'd bought it yesterday, so I WAS ABLE TO DO AN EXCHANGE WITHOUT THE RECEIPT! PHEW!

Afterwards, I thankfully managed to catch the 414 on Minoru to see Rachel at The Caring Place (talking a LOT about Sandy / banking / disability plans / boundaries), then I rushed home afterwards! I thought I discovered a REDRUM smell after eating a bowl of pasta with straw mushrooms, Prego pasta sauce, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. IT WAS LAUNDRY TIME AFTER THE FIRST PERIOD, JUST IN CASE! (pun intended, hahaha) I also sent Frances a quick "happy birthday" email for tomorrow while I remembered. The Canucks played the Wings at 4:30 today; the game went to overtime, and lost 3-2 in a SHOOTOUT! Now I feel the Monthly Drain Sleep Experience (MDSE) coming on... ZZZZZ...


I used the MOTHER 3 Debug Room (not with any great success...), and here is a double Bateau glitch, preventing Flint from joining Duster atop the cliff in Chapter 1. Flint can't go anywhere else because the original Bateau (the one not on the Wall Staples ladder) will say that Duster is waiting for him!




Flint has rescued Fuel from his burning shack in Chapter 1. They've made it to Isaac's house at the entrance to Sunshine Forest, and have refused to save their game with the Save Frog. "Oh, I see... You know, you're quite pitch black."

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME, I left at 11:15 to meet Mom and Dad for lunch at 11:30 at Dinesty Dumpling House on a 401. They were so damn late that I had to call them from the fucking restaurant to confirm that lunch was on! Then they tried subtly blaming it on me - no, I did not ask for the stuff they passed on to me! No, I did not need to be told what the vinegar and ginger was for - I know SLB routine! Plus, I definitely did not have control over where the waitress seated me! Talked about Uncle William, Hiero "punching" the baby because he was jealous, Ayler being protective of the baby and wanting to sandwich him with cushions (cute but dangerous!), hot and sour soup, my leftovers of rice / egg / bok choy / Chinese sausage, Mom buying herbs, and Dad helping to bring the heavy / bulky microwave and toaster oven inside with the newspaper route cart from the old days. I finally got home at 12:45, and was able to relax thereafter!

A sick Jon asked me this morning if I still wanted to make it to his place since his student had cancelled yet another Monday lesson (which I did), and then wanted to know if I could make it on Thursday from 3:30-4:30 since Harmony is working then instead of next Monday because she wants to spend time with Hiero on his actual birthday. Sure, I guess so! BYE WEEK, AHOY! After (MORE) COFFEE TIME, I left at 3:30 to make it to Jon's at 4-ish. The kids were eating and playing with puzzles, but seemed excited about school and new stickers. Ayler had drawn a purple house with lots and lots of floors, Hiero wanted to read a book with lots of flaps with me, Ayler asked a lot of questions about math and why Keith was sick ("he can't be sick in the summer!"), Ayler asked if he could have my fruity beer (NO!), and Ayler practiced his writing and told me that I should know better how to write because I'm an adult. I also passed that message on to Steph, haha.

Ayler asked whether people had gone to heaven if they were born in 1961 or 1948 (or 1914 or 1918) / whether people were still alive if they were born in 462 A.D. or 1018, Hiero loved his bulldozer, and we had gummy cars / curry stew / dumplings / sausage / (coconut) water for dinner. Randal had apparently cancelled too, maybe because of his dad. More playtime for me! Ayler wanted to take my hat off - I said no, which doesn't mean that he gets to say yes! We also talked about seeing his special Gr. 3 buddy Ethan on Thursdays depending on the class schedule, eating old marshmallows from a school craft (NO!), San Francisco in March, falling asleep on the bus, being tired, "Baby Baloo," Hillcrest, the pizza dinner on Sunday, seeing them again on Thursday, and my not staying later than 7 because I had to do some shopping before I got home.

Then I went to London Drugs for a Hilroy notebook since some paper towel got on the whiteout on the cover, a bubble mailer envelope, some hand sanitizer x2 (one of which will have to be returned because I can't figure out how to open it...), desperately-needed Softsoap hand soap refills x2 (juicy cucumber and crisp melon / vanilla brown sugar), and desperately-needed Silk almond milk. No thanks to the cashier commenting on EVERYTHING ("this is so heavy! why did you buy this?!"), I barely made it out the door in plenty of time to catch the 407 and get home at 8:30. Ugh!

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: a brown Tika sweater vest and a Ziploc bag full of Werther's Originals and other hard candies.

I discovered redrum symptoms today - UGH! Mom wanted to drop by this afternoon with the locking containers, toilet paper, and Kleenex that she'd forgotten, so I said she could do so just to get it out of the way. She dropped by about an hour earlier than I was expecting, at 12:35 or so. Meh, at least I got a nice jacket out of the deal?

These green tea biscuits say, "TEA IS A GATEWAY DRUG TO BISCUITS" and "KEEP CALM AND EAT BISCUITS." Hilarious! I ate all the bakery biscuits in one sitting, too.

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: Eight rolls of Royale toilet paper, Royale Kleenex boxes x2, a nice brown London Fog coat which needs to be dry-cleaned, 50 TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES fruit-flavored candy canes, 15 food storage containers in varying sizes (some very tiny, some locking, some plastic, some glass), an apron from Daiso, a pink Coldwater Creek shirt, and a thin Jake One "Think The Nature" shirt vest.

I also checked my mail and got a Christmas card with a dog on it from Jaymee L. (kirei_xo_ai), who also included a packet of Swiss Miss hot chocolate. I also got a Grinch Christmas card from Sam C. (acidquill), who included a small dragon charm / BATMAN stickers / dinosaur stickers x3 (perfect for Ayler and Hiero!) / STAR WARS stickers / FINDING NEMO stickers (perfect for Fraser!) / cute food stickers (ice cream cone / taco / sushi / hamburger / doughnut / pizza slice / French fries / cupcake with cherry on top / a Coke cup playing a guitar / a pretzel / a chocolate bar) / smiley face stickers / IRON MAN stickers / TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLE stickers / American dollar bill and American coin stickers / robot stickers / Martian stickers / GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOLUME 2 stickers / THE AVENGERS stickers.

Hester and the management came by for a suite inspection at 9:55 this morning, saying I needed to wash my kitchen sink and my bathroom sink, wash the bathtub, and move my mop and bucket from the balcony. Yeah, I don't think any of those are going to be done with a lot of competency or urgency! :P

After (MORE) COFFEE TIME at 1:10, I left at 2:40 to make it to Jon's by 3:30. I just missed the 49, so had to wait for the next one. Ayler and Hiero were supposed to be sleeping before snacktime and the SERVANTS dinner, but they had their eyes open the entire time I was in the room. Then they started fighting over the stuffed monkeys before I saw Hiero fall - but something cushioned it, thank goodness. They tried jumping on the bed, taking my necklace, putting the monkey "far away so no one could get it," and then I watched them as they ate pomelo / apple / pomegranate while Jon was teaching Pius. Hiero did not complain about the violin noise this week, at least!

I had an orange while smelling the caramelizing onions and discussing French onion soup / leap years / time / whether it was completely dark outside yet / not believing me when I said I was going to the bathroom / the weather next week / Jon giving me back my U2 JOSHUA TREE CD / school days and holidays / dropping me off at Langara Skytrain Station on the way to pick up Harmony before dinner. At least Jon gave me his arm to hold while going down that treacherous hard-to-see step! (I did try to go through the alleyway earlier, but their landlord had closed the back gate) After they dropped me off at 5:30 (and discussed Nathan), I mailed Corey's extra birthday card and Christmas card at London Drugs before going home at 6:20 on a 407. I had to wait for a while in line, otherwise I'd have been home at 6! Jon thanked me for coming by, which is good. I sent Nathan a FB message when I got home, as well as emailing Eric.

I left at 1:55 on a 407 to make it to Jon and Harmony's and the store prior to playing with Ayler and Hiero before Thanksgiving Dinner. Since I left so early, I went to Shoppers Drug Mart to see if they had sriracha sauce. They did, as well as on-sale Scaeros / Coffin Crisp / Ghostly Kit-Kats / Scaries, plus NEW Korean BBQ Kettle chips! After that, I walked over to IndigoSpirit to see if they had the newest Bathroom Reader: Uncle John's OLD FAITHFUL 30th Anniversary Bathroom Reader (Bathroom Readers' Institute). They didn't since they were only limited distribution in BC, but I did manage to have someone help me at a kiosk so I could just have the book shipped to me at home this week. It saves me another trip out to the mall even if it is nearby! That took a while, but I still managed to be at Jon's place by maybe about 3:15 or so! Ayler asked me what I'd do if they moved downtown - well, I would probably take the train and the bus out to wherever they would be living!

The boys fought with each other as usual (and Hiero fell off the couch's armrest!), but I might have distracted them with the promise of reading to them. Ayler asked if he could sit on my lap, which was fine until my legs started falling asleep. There was a kiddy book with Legos to describe Bible stories, Chinese characters books, a Taan Moon book, a body book, and other things. Randal came over for a piano lesson and stayed for dinner afterwards. Dinner was beef stew with tendons, carrots, and typical Pho garnishes like bean sprouts (and Vietnamese subs!), plus an apricot / grain salad with feta and ricotta cheeses... so non-traditional, but still good! Probably a good thing that I have a turkey backup here at home! Jeremy came over later, which livened the evening up and made it more silly. We talked about Jeremy's cold, baby Henry's banquet (Jon can't attend because of Stanley's wedding on November 19 - but he doesn't even know what he's doing for it?!), Fred becoming a cop in Toronto (and seeing "shades of grey" in morality), the Whip, 12 Kings, Jen being way more conservative / less liberal than she was when we met her, documentaries, Tom Petty, Youtube jams, C+C Music Factory, LL Cool J, Ace of Base, pissing off Auntie Wylene with Salt-N-Pepa and Green Day back in 1994, Bob Dylan / Keith Richards, Silverchair, Bush, and seeing how much the kids knew about fall. We told them that Canadian Thanksgiving was in October and the United States had theirs in November, wanted to know if the leaves would turn blue, and generally had fun with them.

Ayler wanted to tie knots with his Vietnamese noodles, while Hiero wanted to bite the very hard pomelo rind to see if he could eat it that way. That's not how those things work! I saw a kindergarten worksheet with a colorful turkey on it - Ayler had managed to write his own name on it in a reasonably legible fashion! Jeremy brought up the possibility of becoming pregnant when you're already pregnant, so I said that of course there was a name for that: SUPERFETATION! Then he said that it sounded like I got that from a Bathroom Reader: he's SO RIGHT! Of course I had to tell them that I ordered the newest one to ship to my place! At about 7, I left after watching Hiero play train tracks by himself, bidding Jeremy a good night and thanking Jon and Harmony for the dinner. Jon actually thanked me for hanging out early with the kids, surprisingly. Harmony said that it was still pretty stressful since they haven't found a new location to move to yet, and they only have three weeks left in this place!

Ayler and Hiero also surprised me by wanting hugs before I left, so of course I obliged. I would NOT do "falling hugs" as Ayler wanted, though. Why? BECAUSE THEY WOULD HURT! On my way home, I decided to stop by the Oakridge Safeway to see if they had a "fabled" chicken-bacon-ranch sandwich as Milan Penner (Jen now has the same last name as she does!) had told me about YEARS ago in CANUCKS NATION or whatever the group chat was called then. I'd forgotten about that till Jimmy said something about it in Facebook messenger recently since she wants to meet him at some point. The Safeway did have made-to-order sandwiches at the deli, which was good enough for me. The sandwich even had guacamole, and I was also able to pay for a second bottle of sriracha sauce right there at the deli counter instead of having to go to the cash register just for that. I got home at 8:20 on a 407, and talked to the Canucks fan chat and Discord for a bit. Now, bedtime!

"You Are a Maximizer"




When it comes to everything in life, you're always looking for the best. And you don't mind if it takes a while to find it.
You look at every option before making a decision. You don't like to be rushed, and you often regret your choices if you are.

You're the type of person who checks out every item on the menu. You don't want to miss out on any gems!
People may be annoyed with how long you take to make a decision, but they will agree that your taste is extraordinary.






Good, because the other result (Satisficer) is definitely not a real word!

"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.

"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.







From Julie: Jeff Bridges! Jeff Tunnels!

DOUBLE COFFEE TIME! The Canucks had Pre-Season Game #2 against the NEW Las Vegas Golden Knights at 2 today, and lost 9-4.


Silly London Drugs... fruit pastilles are NOT cough drops, which is what I searched for on the website back in June!




From George Takei: Haunted French pancakes give me the crepes.

I noticed that Joyce - whose birthday is today - had unfriended me from Facebook. Her loss! It was also COFFEE TIME by default since I got up at 7:20 AM. Mike B. had sent me a cool message to wish me a happy early birthday, so that definitely made me smile!





"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.







From Julie: Stephen Colbert! Stephen Warmbert!

After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 12:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart, where 80% of the store smelled like durian! I bought on-sale Western Family store brand Ultra paper towels in a six-pack, on-sale Cottonelle toilet paper, Fanny Bay raw oysters for $20 (June 2, 2017), noodles, SOMETHING NEW, ice cream, dumplings, Western Family store brand chili con carne (hot AND original styles!) plus Uncle Ben's Bistro Express basmati rice x2 to go with it, on-sale Finesse extra body shampoo / conditioner, Koka curry noodles x2, store brand large rubber gloves, on-sale Finesse moisturizing shampoo / conditioner, on-sale Juzz Mee noodles x2 (original AND curry), Paldo spicy cheese ramen, regular and curry Laksa wholegrain La Mian noodles, and on-sale Silk almond milk x2. Then we went to London Drugs: a Jersey Milk chocolate bar for the Randal memory dragon, on-sale SunRype apple juice, on-sale SunRype orange juice, and on-sale Colgate 360° toothbrushes x2.


Barry and I saw a GOLDEN TRUCK in the back parking lot of London Drugs! When I got home, I paid my Shaw bill online. Then I went back to London Drugs (twice in one day!) at 6:30 on a 401 so I could get some on-sale LATE JULY organic multigrain tortilla chips for the time coincidence and quirkiness! I love quirky coincidences! While I was there, I couldn't resist getting one last large SunRype apple juice for a total savings of $12 on four jugs because the sale ends tonight! I got home at 6:55 on a 407, so YAY FOR BUS EFFICIENCY! I also saw an old guy with an artificial leg!


From BackgroundGuy's Discord server: It's Wed Ness Day! Okay.




Fanny Bay Oysters logo!




Chips, chili, toothbrushes, mushrooms, and more! )

I showered tonight... ugh, greasy hair! :P Then I tried the Pillsbury poutine Pizza Pops, telling Cuya what I thought about them on Discord. They're slightly disappointing, so I won't be buying them again. Real poutine is way better, of course!


Unknown5 - Creepy / morbid / interesting historical things!


From Not Always Working: Matlatzinca Montoya?!




Alyssa Hatmaker?! I remember someone with this name on GreatestJournal (GJ) years and years ago now... she went by a slew of names, including sophonax_ / elimmire / sky_vine / dialaurel / savra / green_carnation / pageturner / xanthos / fishbowl_soul / seamoon!




From Not Always Learning: Aargle Zymurgy?!




From Not Always Right: Alethia Cyrus?! I remember when David Fellowship did something with the Richmond church group called Aleithia Fellowship on May 26, 2006... but that's not a name for a kid, come on.




From Not Always Right: Arhi Mith?!

glowing_dragon: (Bubble Tea)
I called Hester at 10:20 AM to see whether I could get laundry tokens (September 23, 2016) at that early hour, and I could. At least this time, she didn't bitch about how "not polite" I was on the phone (I'm not a morning person or very "fake polite" after getting up!), how I was taking "too long" to go up one floor or suggest that I take a set of stairs I never use because they're too far away on my floor yet convenient for her! Her husband Ni gave me the laundry tokens after taking care of an old man, and I counted them out first before going back to my own apartment.


From Sarah G. and Keri Beevis: Moist people aren't offended by the occasional typo.




From Reddit: Here's Jesus speaking to a crowd! So I was like, "I'm the son of God," and they were like, "No way." And I was like, "Yahweh."




I'm in a Med Reminders private chat on BGG's Discord channel server, and someone changed the icon to this on April 21. Alarm clock, pills, aspirins, capsules, and a check mark!

These are all the enemies I could find in FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS!

I know that this bestiary GameFAQs document helped me a lot; thank you! Also, this walkthrough by Djibriel helped a lot when I was stuck in the game. Here's an amazing codes document. This is an enemy formation document / walkthrough. Here's a game script! Found a good Dragon's Den walkthrough which didn't have atrocious English!

This is a good code document. YAY FOR MAGICITE!

F124-EDD8 gives you 99 of every item.

I used this Youtube playlist by LowBiasGaming as a walkthrough.
