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.

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!

I woke up at 5:45 AM, so it was definitely COFFEE TIME! Then it was ECLIPSE MUSIC with Bonnie Tyler's TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART! I also watched a live eclipse video on Facebook.




From Facebook: Aleah Beckerle?!




After defeating all the paintings at Owzer's Mansion in Jidoor, the FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party (Edgar / Sabin / Celes / Relm) goes to visit the crazy old man. Aged Man: "Oh, hello again! Yep, you were tops!" Sabin: "That's why we..."

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 showered and did laundry today, a day earlier than I might have! However, I had to wipe a very watery bathroom floor with a mop and multiple (paper) towels, then had to do TWO loads of laundry on the THIRD floor, where one of the dryers was out of order! What stressful stramash! AIYA! I finally finished all the laundry just now at 7:30!

Jidoor fashion at its best! )

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."

I showered and did laundry today. The repairman came by at 1:40 to install a new stove fan switch, and confirmed that the stove pans were too icky to be cleaned normally. I guess I will have to replace them! I saw Hester by the elevator and after being invited into the outdoor storage room (which is indeed full of junk, including London Drugs shopping carts), she gave me one which is too small, then eventually took back a newer bigger one because my stove pan wasn't broken. The newer one was shinier on the inside AND outside, but she said it was rusty and kind of bent. She thanked me for understanding, and gave me a tip when I asked: that she'd bought them at the Richmond Public Market at a haircut shop (?!) on the second floor. Okay then, I guess I'm going there at some point since I don't exactly trust Easy-Off with that stove pan! (but I might buy it just in case) Not going today, though - that was way too much cheery social interaction for me as an introvert!


From Krista: Quetzalcoatl ancient Mayan dragon god!




From Janina: Hannibal Lecter says, "A census-taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti."




In FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS, Sabin / Shadow / Cyan / the Ghost fight Gilgamesh (for the second time) on the Phantom Train. Gilgamesh says, "You spoony monk!" after attacking them with his Excalipoor sword and a Gale Cut.
