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!


From Reddit: Thongporn Buttasin is a real name?!

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
Mom and Dad picked me up at 5:50 with a bunch of stuff, detailed below. We went to White Spot because I vetoed Dinesty. It's my birthday, so I get to choose, dammit! We talked about Steph, this upcoming winter, Jon needing to be a parent (I don't care!), Netflix, Auntie Grace, Dave He, Auntie May and Auntie Vivian and AWANA at church (like I'm going back?!), Phil / Uncle Peter / Auntie Ying, my curried red quinoa, Mom "ordering" coffee (she did NOT!), attempts to get me to ask Eric for a ride on Sundays (NO - I LIKE MY FREEDOM!), and pickles. I got home at 7:25, which was fine.

Engrish on the Rabbit and Bears notebook: Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels / Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes / Silver-white winters that melt into springs / Feel the warmth city, nothing to fear / To be true for you and me.


From Reddit: Happy birthday to you! Cats, guitars, balloons, and hearts!




From Pinterest: White Spot's curried red quinoa: Tandoori cauliflower, spinach, caramelized onions, grapes, and maple roasted carrots over red quinoa. Almonds, cilantro sour cream, and Naan bread!




Schwarzkopf Professional GLISS Hair Repair shampoo!

I sent Jon a Facebook message this morning after COFFEE TIME to wonder what time I should drop by tomorrow, and 2:45 sounds good to me!


Jimmy Hoffa's full name was James Riddle Hoffa?!




From Julie: King of Ink Land Body Art The Extreme Ink-Ite?!

glowing_dragon: (OMFG Yay!)
I saw a dead mouse, so called Barry to see if he could remove it - he said he'd try. I was surprised when there was a knock on the door at about 3:45, which happened to be a Shaw technician. He installed the Wi-Fi router / modem for me, and did a lot of stuff to some wires and cables outside as well, saying that it was still kind of weird. No shit, especially when my digital phone lines get kicked offline! I'm just glad to have Internet access again, so will be focusing on my many screenshots!


From Not Always Friendly: Teal Cyko?!




Marshawn Lynch?!




From I Love Vampires: Tahlequah Rae Pruitt?!




From I Love Vampires: Sequoyah L. Pruitt?! I guess her parents didn't know that a sequoia is a TREE only!




Speaking of tree names, my high school friend Brandi named her daughter Aspen at least 16 years ago...

I was up at 6:30 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! My glasses arm broke at approximately 7 AM this morning, so since I was going to go out to the nearby medical clinic anyway (removal for hearing!), I went to Factory Direct / Factory Optical. At least this time, I don't have Korey trying to manipulate me into seeing him instead (and into being "best friends" with Randal) like I did in early January 2008, although white Eric's concern about transit was good! The Canada Line took me to Factory Direct / Factory Optical way sooner than transit did back then, too!

My only problem was being unable to find my spare glasses in any drawer! Before I left, I called the medical clinic to see about their walk-in schedule. I got an appointment at 4:30, so I went out to the glasses place first. It was definitely more convenient to use the Canada Line to bus to Broadway and Ash: just get off at Olympic Village and walk not even half a block! The repair cost $25! I got home at 12:45 on a 407, at least. Then the clinic called me at 4:15 to check whether I was still coming in - of course! Dr. Schmaltz (?) was filling in and did my removal for hearing in an efficient manner, so I got home at 4:50. Not bad!


From Not Always Right: Kiliano Best?!




From Not Always Right: Jonathon Side?! Sorry, but that is an incorrect spelling of Jonathan!




From Not Always Right: Stina Wargo Kolling?! Couldn't her parents have gone with Christina instead?!




From Not Always Right: Storm McCreery Rye?! Makes me think of storm rye whiskey, if there's such a thing!




From Not Always Right: Muh Legy?!

I decided to call my worker Barry at 10:50 to finally let him know about last week's events: Hester actually believing me with proof about the freezer not working. I swear, the ice cream was pretty bleh! Then the apartment building manager Hester, her husband Ni, and the maintenance repair guy came around at 1:30 to check out my fridge and freezer. The official diagnosis is that I need a new fridge and freezer combo because my current one is from the 1980s, and the maintenance guy isn't going to repair THAT! Thank goodness that Hester heard that straight from the repair guy's mouth, as she will now let her office know about things, so I'll see what happens with this. She also told me not to buy anything that needed to be frozen until after I heard what her office had to say and got a new fridge and freezer: DUH?!


In SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE, Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad go into the Earth Cavern to defeat Wario and get the Ruby. "There is a stone plate on the floor... You sense something... Evil? ..."




Ruby: A large red stone.




Later, the SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party goes into the Giant's Cave to give the Ruby to this stone monster. "If you want pass, give me the RUBY... Crunch, crunch, crunch... Mmm, it tastes so sweet. Rubies are my favorite."




Rod: The ROD to remove the plate from the earth. (the SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party got this from the Sage's Cave)




The SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party gets the Oxyale from the formerly-Bottled Faerie once they let her go when they reach the town of Gaia. "The OXYALE furnishes fresh air." This lets the party breathe underwater in the Sunken Shrine dungeon in Onrac.




The SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party goes to the Sunken Shine dungeon, and gets the Slab. "Unknown symbols cover the SLAB."

After I had COFFEE TIME and called London Drugs customer service to find out when their current sale ends on Rubbermaid dish drainers (May 28), Barry picked me up at 12:45 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I bought on-sale Classico pasta sauce x2 (Four Cheese and Tomato / Pesto), noodles, a shower pouf, Teriyaki Rice / Noodles Sidekicks, preserved vegetables, on-sale Cheemo perogies x2 (Country Mushroom and Potato / Bacon / Romano Cheese), pork and tri-treasure / lamb and onion / pork and vegetable / pork and chives JOY dumplings at the Big Crazy price (which saves me a trip out there if it's the same price), on-sale store brand paper towels, and JML chicken and mushroom noodles. I also got on-sale Western Family French Vanilla ice cream, NEW Pillsbury poutine Pizza Pops in a special edition (I love the alliteration!), NEW Pillsbury cheese pizza bites, NEW Pillsbury pepperoni pizza bites, Juzz Mee curry noodles, a BC roll for $3.99 (better than the 22-piece $10.99 assorted rolls if the expiry date is still tomorrow, May 25), Vedan noodles x2 (Spicy Mushroom / Cuttlefish and Mushroom), and on-sale Ruffles chips x3. (Loaded Potato Skins / Sour Cream and Bacon / All-Dressed) I also saw preserved Cordia seeds while I was in the Chinese jars aisle, so made a note of that to tell Citrus so he can tell his sister.

While I was at the store, I helped a random white guy with some Nissin black garlic oil noodles, and told an old grandma that her shawl looked pretty. (it had Japanese women with fans on it!) She at least thanked me! When I got home at 2:10, Barry did agree to help me with changing the batteries on the phone in my bedroom, which is good. Afterwards, I paid my Shaw bill online today, then somehow unplugged my computer speakers while trying to figure some stuff out! My cashier recognized me, and so we chatted a bit - his name is Ray, and he has a white half-beard thing. I left again at 6:30 to London Drugs, where I got a new on-sale dish drainer (April 11, 2015) on Aisle 1 / on-sale purple GUM Comfort Slide flossers since today was the last day of their being on sale currently / an on-sale Slinky toy plus an on-sale Redbox pre-historic dinosaur toy set with trees (#24359) for Ayler's birthday.

I got a much more helpful computer associate this time (yesterday's associate had told me to go to the front for checkout and didn't seem interested in customer service), who sold me a black Microsoft Wired 600 keyboard for $20. Thank goodness it worked when I got home at 8:30 (just missing a 407 and having to wait for the next one), after a mini heart attack when it initially wouldn't work to put in my password at startup! This one is quieter and much lighter, too! Time to email Harmony to see when a good time would be to drop off the gifts, or see Ayler too, I guess. NOW MY MOUSE AND KEYBOARD ARE FREE OF MIKE AND HIS TAINT!


From the Staples Canada Facebook wall: a six-pack of Cross fountain pen ink cartridge refills and a five-pack of Parker Quink ink cartridge refills with fountain permanent ink are $999,999.99 each?!




Pasta sauce and toys and chips, oh my! )
