I called Chrystal at work at 1:30, but she wanted to reschedule for next Friday (March 22), which was fine by me. Work is kicking her ass, and Monday to Thursdays aren't that great for her in terms of dinners these days. She thanked me for being flexible and was apologetic, so that was totally fine. I need a day of downtime after the weekend and mental stress!


From Z 95.3: Here's a Minion! Dear Music, I will never be able to thank you enough for always being there for me.

After COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 10:15 so we could finally go to Dr. Wise's office downtown for my eyeball ultrasound follow-up: MORE PAPERWORK AND APPOINTMENTS! We discussed my nephews, therapy, serial killers using white vans, Ted Bundy, the Green River Killer, Paul Bernardo, BTK, and more. When I got home at 12:25 (after Barry went into "robot mode" and blamed jet lag from Japan), I chilled for a bit. I'll have to go to Dr. Wise's office again for another follow-up appointment on November 29 because of my dense cataract needing to be measured by the UBC Eye Care Clinic on Willow Street. AIYA!

Then I called Barry about my successful Nov. 15 appointment rescheduling with the UBC Eye Care Centre when I called them about it at 1:40. It'll be at 9:15 AM on November 15 [which means he has to pick me up at 8:30 AM because of rush hour] instead of 3:30 PM on the same day. That works better with his scheduling because the Pathways office closes at 4. At least I had a lot of time to write out my plans on index cards and my Wordpress Drafts, plus message CANUCKS NATION about it without other people wanting my attention RIGHT NOW! If it weren't for that, things might be better in that way, but Jimmy IS a narcissist...

Later, I went to London Drugs on a 401 at 5:55 for replacement Garnier Fructis orange Marula Oil shampoo and conditioner / Ivory original body wash, and a purple replacement LifeCandy shower pouf. I also bought two red $2 Cannon / Grand Patrician MARTEX washcloths, on-sale Brookside Chocolate bars x2 for Jon's birthday in November (Roasted Almond and Sea Salt / Cranberry Almond with Blood Orange Flavor), Waterbridge Connoisseur Premium Liqueur chocolate brandy beans (Christmas stuff on sale at the stores already before Halloween...), bulk Always pads, original Dawn dish detergent, and Purell hand sanitizer x3 before getting home at 6:45 on a 407. My first actual shopping trip to London Drugs / this particular London Drugs store after certain things have happened! Woo!

After SHOWER TIME and COFFEE TIME, I left at 5 in the 30 degree C weather (30°C!) to catch the C94 for my rescheduled 5:30 appointment with Rachel at The Caring Place. At least I'm getting my hilarious humor back, as was demonstrated during said appointment! ("For my next trick, I'll strip down and dance on the balcony! You'll phone PSYCH and tell them you have an incoming patient, hahaha!") Later, I walked home through Minoru Park and immediately cooled down and started ROIMU when I got in at 6:50. (the first post-Jimmy ROIMU session!)

I heard that the annoying 16-year-old Luna FINALLY left the r/hockey Discord server: THANK GOODNESS! Nobody cares about the Capitals' personal Instagram posts! She said that she was basically told to kill herself. It turns out that someone was JOKING about euthanizing her, which is totally different!


From Julie: Stacey is fine, but Fancy is not a human name!

glowing_dragon: (OMFG Yay!)
I called Chrystal at work at 1:10 yesterday to remind her about last night, being honest about how July 12 (next Thursday) was actually just a consultation and not an actual surgery. "SHE BAMBOOZLED ME! NO!" Hahaha! While power-walking through the building and down the stairs, I saw Mr. Creep on his way up the stairs! UGH! I just managed to get to the C94 bus stop from Brighouse library before the shuttle bus got there! Then I had to wait ten minutes for the next Canada Line train at Brighouse, but managed to see Chrystal at the Broadway London Drugs. We went to Chipotle and talked about baby Beckett (my newest nephew!), my upcoming cataract consultation on Burrard, Emily's new baby Benjamin (Chrystal's newest nephew!), my therapy, my messy steak burrito in a bowl, my walking in on someone in the public washroom because SHE forgot to lock the door, my computer upgrade, her parents sharing a smartphone, my parents being millennial phone zombies in senior citizens' bodies, smartphones, the rain then, and more.

After that, she went to No Frills to meet her dad while I went back to London Drugs to look for gum tubs. I couldn't find them on my own, so had to ask the employees for help. The Dentyne gum was on $2.99 sale this week, so I grabbed a Dentyne Ice Avalanche 60-piece tub, hoping that THIS one wouldn't be soft. (I tested it later at the Canada Line station, and it thankfully was FINE! I lost the Excel gum lottery TWICE IN A ROW!) I also got an on-sale bag of Brookside blackberry and honey chocolates as a thank-you for Eric today if his fix worked. If it didn't, the chocolate was still in my preferred form of bites instead of tablets! Haha! I got home at 9:55 in the pouring rain because I had JUST missed the 401 / 407 buses at Brighouse, forcing me to wait an additional half an hour. After writing some notes to myself, I went to bed at 11.

I got up at 6 AM, decided to get some more rest, and got up for good at 10:45. Then I noticed that Eric had called at 10:25, so I called him back. He'd been out and wanted to see if he could fix my monitor, but he guessed he could go out again. In the 15 minutes available to me, I brushed my teeth / washed my face / took my multivitamin / took my Kraft Dinner White Cheddar macaroni and cheese plus Brookside chocolates out for Macaroni Day and Chocolate Day today / took Eric's Brookside Chocolates out / tidied up my computer desk area. Eric arrived at 11 with an extra BENQ monitor that used to be his dad Ron's, and was able to plug in my current monitor while cleaning it with Windex!

He looked up Electronics Return-It centres, and found that the Blundell one should be open on Saturdays, so took out my two old hard drives and old monitor, and accepted my chocolate as a thank-you while never guessing the CREEP that I saw at the library yesterday. Eric did say that he thought it was the circuits or something from the monitor itself. After a while, I went to Brighouse library on the C94 at 3:20 in order to hopefully get the Facebook status tagging backlog done using their IP address. IT WORKED BEFORE CLOSING TIME AT 5! I was in time for the 4:45 C94 on the way back to Brighouse Station, and was finally home at 5 on a 407.


Edit at 7:30! I finally got Mom on the phone to see if they had a floor lamp while I remembered BEFORE lunch on Monday. She said "of course," and at least clarified what I meant. Yes, one that is on the living room floor, NOT one for the bedroom! (which I wouldn't even call a floor lamp, but anyway...) At least now I can be picked up at 11:30 in the courtyard instead of having to leave 45 minutes early because of bus schedules! She said stuff about a used vacuum cleaner which still works for $10 at the thrift shop, a toaster, my pre-surgery consultation (which I told her FOUR TIMES that I had rescheduled for July 26 - their moving date), Auntie Wing Yee and Uncle Joe moving in with Holly / Peter / Evander / Everett in Steveston, Jon and Harmony maybe needing help on Thursday because the lards will get their Burnaby keys then, and eye care.

After COFFEE TIME, I left extra early (ugh) at 12:20 for my 1 PM rescheduled appointment with Rachel. I guess I have to take being half an hour early rather than ten minutes late, due to weird C94 scheduling. After that, I went to London Drugs and got Excel peppermint gum, and was very careful with my selection for a new wallet, eventually deciding on a $30 (and expensive!) "big" black Swiss Gear toiletry bag. At least it can fit 100 index cards, three maxipads, and a bunch of other stuff while still being wide enough for a bank envelope should I need one to compartmentalize some cash money! Speaking of cash money, I got two $5 bills in my change, which should be enough for the "extra" $10 for Andrew's final computer payment for next payday! I got home at 3:05 on a 407, and was mildly annoyed when I saw that Mom had tried calling me. I SAID I COULDN'T MAKE IT TO LUNCH! Jesus Christ!

What a stressful morning! Dad emailed me at 10 to say that I could have lunch with them because they had more stuff for me. I simply said I couldn't make it, because "I've eaten already" could mean "oh, it's just breakfast" in their little minds. Then I called Barry - who was at a goodbye party - to tell him about the cataract consultation date, who said that July 12 (a Tuesday) wouldn't work because he has another client who has a surgery that afternoon, which has been booked for months. He persuaded me to reschedule since I was able to get an appointment within a few days of the eye exam with the retina specialists. So I did, getting a new date a week later of July 19.

I called him back, stating that I had to leave the house soon as it was 11:30 or so. He gave me the dates of July 23 (a Monday) or July 26, another Tuesday. After calling Dr. Wise's office back, I finally got a consultation date of July 26 at 9:15 AM. No, 8:15 AM was way too early, and I apparently couldn't get a later time on that day. Of course, I apologized for trying to coordinate schedules with my ride, but the receptionist seemed fine with it, UNLIKE MIKE! Haha! At 11:45, I then had to poop. Thanks for the warning THIS time, body, but I didn't have much time, relatively speaking! Of course I pooped, but now I really do need to catch the C94!

The retina specialist's office called me at 3:30 to say that they'd scheduled a cataract surgery consultation appointment for me, on July 12 at 9:30 AM, which is a Thursday. Since I realized that would be the day before my planned dinner with Chrystal, I attempted to call her at work to reschedule, but I got voicemail. I just tried ten minutes later, and got her on the phone. Without any preamble, I told her why I was calling. We eventually rescheduled for July 6, which is good.

Adam L. is off Facebook again - MAKE UP YOUR DAMN MIND! I left on a 2:10 C94 to see Rachel (emotional work!) at 2:30 after COFFEE TIME. At least I managed to reschedule our afternoon appointment on the 26th because of my retina exam at the specialist that morning. I'll have to show up extra early on the 29th because of the C94 bus scheduling! After all that, I went to Shoppers Drug Mart for a dozen peanut butter cookies with a generous expiry date of June 28 for bakery items, and then to London Drugs for NEW Jack Link's Jalapeno beef jerky and a new Pharma Systems pillbox since my current one from the dollar store is losing pills and opening the compartments by itself. I got home at 4:25 - gotta celebrate National Peanut Butter Cookie Day and National Jerky Day, for sure!

Barry called me at 11:40 to see if I could reschedule the appointment on Wednesday the 21st to the next day (the 22nd - a Thursday) at 10:45 AM since he had to take someone to the doctor. I guess so...

I called Barry at 9:30, he called me back at 10 to say he hadn't listened to my message (SO WHAT'S THE POINT OF MY LEAVING ONE?!), and we were on our way at 11. At least I got my banking done and got a rescheduled food shopping appointment at 11 AM on Thursday the 1st!

Chrystal emailed me this morning to say that she'll actually be out of town for the next two weeks and would love to meet up with me after getting back on the 20th, so that still totally works for me even if she understandably can't do the 14th! Vanessa came by from Langley before her Richmond appointments so we could exchange stuff. I gave her a Christmas card / Eric Ho's Jersey Milk chocolate bar / Advent calendar so I could get some of her homemade chocolate peanut Eat More bars since she can't have too much sugar these days. She got here at 12:20, and we spent half an hour chatting because I got back in at 12:50. Talked about Jason, his mom, his cousin, amniotic fluid, karma, Jon and Harmony's current living situation, Ayler, the stigma around girls, Krista thinking that everyone is out to get her / ignoring the signs of abuse from her exes Andrew and Ryan (DON'T WAIT AROUND FOR THEM TO CHANGE EVEN IF THEY WANT TO!), autism, a Steveston mail truck not looking out for her, that Eastern Conference hockey chat, Jimmy and his "must not be fatter than me" dealbreaker, (water) weight, January plans, maternity leave, Richmond drivers, my periods, her NOT making any more Thanksgiving dinners for SOME PEOPLE, and it being cold today. Good to catch up at least!


From Reddit on June 25, 2016: "We've been dating for a long time - FOUR MONTHS!" Oh, 19-year-olds... Sarcasam_Is_King can't even spell "sarcasm" correctly!




From Reddit on March 18, 2016: When people use expressions like "you go, girl" to her, WandMirk probably shouldn't take it so personally. She says she's not a girl even if her body doesn't produce most hormones. It says something that I misread her username as WANDA MIRK. Special snowflake right there! Not because of her body, but because of how she reacts to a normal expression.

I called Uncle Andrew's office at 11:50 AM to reschedule my appointment again because I don't want to miss the DRAGON QUEST block at RPG Limit Break tomorrow! They're also doing MOTHER! The new date is June 6 (a Tuesday) at 4, which should be doable. I took a shower later on, too.


From Krista: Purple nightmare dragon!

Since I was up at 7 AM, it was COFFEE TIME! When Uncle Andrew's dentist office called me at 10:10 to remind me of my upcoming dentist appointment, I decided to reschedule it to May 17. Hopefully, that will give me enough time to get my flossing done! I called Chrystal at work today at 12:20 to wish her a happy early birthday since Easter weekend is coming up and she IS busy! She definitely appreciated that!
