I went out at 12:30 for shopping purposes at London Drugs, so I walked there. Purchased Tazo ginger tea, a Scrub Daddy sponge, and a Scrub Daddy scrubber. I also mailed some birthday stuff to Julie, but couldn't mail actual cash. Failing that, I had to get NEW Häagen-Dazs Extras ice cream x5! (Rocky Road / Cookies and Cream / Banana Peanut Butter Chip / Brownies and Cookie Dough / Strawberry Cheesecake) Got home at 1:55 on a 401, which is okay.

SHOPPING RUNDOWN!

H and M: DRAGON HOODIE on clearance ($15 off) from $39.99 to $24.99! :D

London Drugs near my house: Red MARTEX bath towel, medium blue MARTEX bath towel, NEW on-sale Strawberries and Cream Lindt chocolate truffles, NEW limited-edition on-sale Blueberries and Cream Lindt truffles, NEW on-sale Milk and White Spring Edition Lindt truffles, on-sale Colgate Optic White toothpaste, and Colgate KnockOut MaxFresh toothpaste in Mint Fusion.

Broadway London Drugs: Fart-O-Matic birthday card for Jon for 2020, brown MARTEX bath towel, on-sale Godiva dark chocolate Easter bunny, and an on-sale Kit Kats Senses Easter bunny.

Shoppers Drug Mart: On-sale Philadelphia chip dip (dill pickle!), and on-sale President's Choice bite-size round tortilla chips! Gotta have it for Chips and Dip Day today and tomorrow!


Before COFFEE TIME, I called Chrystal to see what time we should meet tonight; 7:30 sounds good to me! I went out early at 5:30 to see if I could get that dragon hoodie at H and M after figuring out all the sidewalk and bus stop closures. They were all in a Medium size, but I figured that I'd make it work somehow. I didn't even care that I couldn't exchange it or get a refund since it was on clearance! $15 off - from $39.99 to $24.99! Then I went to the nearby London Drugs, then to the Broadway / Cambie London Drugs. Figured I'd spend my $75 tax refund while I was out and could do stuff, and I did! Now I have to wait for the April credit to go through, ha ha ha...

As I was reading an ARCHIE book, Chrystal came up to me - she was on time today! I told her that I had a birthday card for her, and not to worry about the rest of the stuff in my bulky reusable bag - that was all for me! We went to Pho Extreme Xe Lua to catch up: her parents going to Dubai pretty soon, Ethan and Mike being sick with the flu, my new Reddit friends, the whole Woob and Twitter screenshots saga, Benjamin being about the same age as Beckett, Beckett screaming as loud as the 80s music inside Como Taperia, and her knowing that I liked spicy stuff. After dinner, I went home instead of joining Brian, Paulo, and others at the American. I did stop by Shoppers Drug Mart when I got to Brighouse so I could get the aforementioned chips and dip. Got home at 9:10 on a 401, no thanks to MORE complicated sidewalk closures! They did make a temporary crosswalk near the intersection at my place, though.

I went shopping at 12:35 today, having to walk to London Drugs because the endless construction and sewer upgrades have made the nearby bus stops non-operational. Had to rest twice in fifteen minutes! Bought letter stickers / Lysol wipes x80 / on-sale Cepacol throat drops / Carrot Cake Oreos / Salsitas chips, then decided to go to the Bay across the street and get a dark blue cotton towel. I finally got home at 2:45, and plan to take a shower later.

Went to London Drugs for a replacement toothbrush since I had to throw one in the garbage yesterday morning because I couldn't rinse it (NO WATER!), a yellow LifeCandy shower pouf, a big plain yellow envelope, and NEW Vaseline For Men lotion. Also mailed birthday / Valentine's cards and stickers to Fraser and Steph before getting home at 3:10 on a 407.

I discovered redrum last night - UGH! After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got on-sale Uncle Ben's rice x3 (Mushroom / Tomato and Herb / Jambalaya), Nissin black garlic oil noodles / BulJjamppong Korean beef seafood noodles / Paldo Volcano Chicken noodles / Nongshim Kamja Tang Myun rich potato noodles, NEW on-sale Charlotte's holiday butter cookies ($2 more for 430 grams vs. 340 grams for Royal Dansk), on-sale toys for Hiero's birthday presents where the original price even beats the Amazon price (EMOJI MOVIE Memory matching card game / Mega Bloks Smash Stunt Zeg truck), on-sale Cottonelle toilet paper x2, on-sale spearmint Dentyne gum, and Hainanese chicken which expires on the 23rd.

I also got NEW Oikos pineapple Greek yogurt, NEW Danone Oikos Lemon Meringue Creations Greek yogurt, JOY dumplings x6 (Lamb and Onion / Tri-Treasure / Pork and Chive / Pork and Vegetable), on-sale Liberté Skyr Icelandic-style yogurt x3 (plain / raspberry / vanilla bean - so I don't have to go all the way to Superstore for it right now!), soft Chips Ahoy cookies (original and peanut butter), on-sale Campbell's Chunky Soup (Chicken Sausage Gumbo and Creamy Chicken Noodle), and on-sale unsweetened Silk almond milk. We had to go back to Coast Capital (discussing Joy Division and the Clash and hockey fights) because my debit card came up with a "CAN'T PROCESS" error at the store! Ugh! At least I LUCKILY had the $180 cash to pay for my purchases, but STILL! This is a new card from late JULY, too! Bonus: The bank teller's name was HARSHDEEP!

After that, I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online at home. Then I got a Christmas photo card from Janet S. (ghost_light) and Christmas presents and stuff from Julie in a bubble-wrap envelope! A Christmas card with stickers, red and pink CHRISTMAS HOUSE penguin socks, a fun and fuzzy JOT ballpoint pen, Women Daredevils: Thrills, Chills, and Frills (Julie Cummins / Cheryl Harness), eight sticker sheets (Christmas glitter / wild animals / truck stickers which Ayler and Hiero would probably stick all over the floor if I gave it to them / five more assorted sheets), two fun and encouraging little notebooks ("You can do this!" / "Best day ever!"), and a penguin pouch of Cappuccino For You! Eric Ho also finally emailed me back, saying that with his current work schedule, the 27th is the only date that could work for a hockey hangout before the new year. Well, at least he'll keep me posted!

COFFEE TIME while I'm still figuring out why Jimmy blocked me instead of just talking to me about what I did... I should have posed it as a hypothetical a while ago!

Then again, he probably doesn't trust me anymore after what I did, which I can now regret and understand! The Canucks played the Stars at 1 today, and tried holding a 1-0 lead... NOPE, they lost 2-1! UGH! Afterwards, I went to London Drugs at 4:10 on a 401. I got new Cra-z-Art felts, on-sale Lever 2000 Original soap in a pack of four, and some replacement items: Garnier Fructis Pure Clean green shampoo and conditioner, NEW NIVEA Care and Diamond body wash (Diamond Shimmer Calla Lily scent), a yellow LifeCandy shower pouf, two GUM toothbrushes, Softsoap pomegranate and mango liquid hand soap, on-sale Arm and Hammer baking soda toothpaste, two dark blue GOODY toothbrush covers, and a GIBSON owl coffee mug.

While I was there, I mailed the Soo black pepper salmon jerky and a Christmas card to Kramer / Merlin / Poohbear / Kitsune in a bubble-wrap envelope... plus Christmas cards to Julie (moonshar), Sheryll (sheryll), Kitty (bornwitch / dutch_kitty), Deanna (endlessblush) [and a bonus birthday card], Corey (dwcorey) [and a bonus birthday card], Kelli (neonrose5), and Steph / Lisa / Fraser / Henry / Havarti. LONDON DRUGS NOW HAS A PUBLIC CUSTOMER RESTROOM AGAIN - YAY! Bonus: The woman cashier's name was LUCKY, and SHE didn't comment on all the "heavy" items! I got home at 5:25 on an early 407, which is fine, too.

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.

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 1:40 on a 401 (just missing a 407!) to do some shopping before seeing Rachel at The Caring Place. I got some takeout Boston Pizza Pasta Tuesday for National Pasta Month in October (Jambalaya Fettuccini!), then went to Price Smart while waiting on that. Bought some NEW on-sale limited edition Doritos Dinamita Chile Limón snacks, NEW on-sale limited edition Doritos Dinamita Nacho Picoso snacks, beef tripe with ginger and green onion for World Tripe Day tomorrow, NEW on-sale Cinnamon Bun Oreos, and NEW on-sale Birthday Cake Oreo Cookies!

When I finally got home at 3:55 on a 407, I discovered that the spicy sauce from the tripe container somehow got on my Oreo cookie packages... YUCK AND EW! I had to open the cookies and put them all in a huge Ziploc bag! Luckily, it didn't seem to get on the Doritos chips packages. (why didn't the cashier put the tripe in a separate bag...)

"Bob Bobberchuk" added me to Facebook - okay, then! I went to London Drugs again at 4 on a 407 (managing to just get the bus) to mail a note to Jimmy... only $1.26! Also bought on-sale Pacari organic chocolate bars x6: Raw 100% Cacao (orange), Passion Fruit (yellow), 60% Cacao Esmeraldas (pink), Andean Rose (red), Lemongrass (green), Raw 70% Cacao (yellow-green) - $3 each for a 50g bar! Oh well...

I also got NEW on-sale Dare Cookie Dough Whippets which expire on October 30, NEW Oreo Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pie cookies which expire on February 27, 2019 / NEW Oreo Cookies Pistachio Creme Thins cookies which expire on December 2 for National Cookie Month in October, an orange replacement $2 MARTEX washcloth, Palmolive Oxy Power Degreaser dish detergent, Hilroy Press-It-Seal-It envelopes (both white and security envelopes), NEW on-sale Tic Tac Gum x3 (Fresh Mint / Spearmint / Watermelon), and NEW London Naturals Wild Orange plant-based all-purpose cleaner. Got home at 5:05 on a 407, and had lots of peace and quiet. I needed it to edit past entries, grab food photos from Google, and upload them! The Canucks played the Bruins at 7 tonight; the game went to overtime, and the Canucks won 2-1 against the nasty Bruins! BO HORVAT!

After Barry dropped me off at Oakridge at 10:35 AM, I bought NEW Taki's Fuego Mexican snacks / NEW Taki's Xplosion Mexican snacks / NEW Taki's Angry Burger Mexican snacks / NEW Taki's Crunchy Fajitas Mexican snacks / NEW Peace Tea Peach Party iced tea / NEW Mini Rolos as a treat after my eye exam / NEW Take Home Size Maltesers at the Oakridge Safeway. I also had a NEW Korean Pulled Pork six-inch sandwich at the Subway in the food court since I was right there anyway and needed to eat. Then I returned the chocolate - TOO HOT AND IT WOULD MELT IN FIVE MINUTES!

Later at Oakridge Station, some guy practically threatened to sue me over incidental contact with my bulky reusable bag. This city, I swear. Just because you wanted to get by after maneuvering your bike into the elevator does NOT mean you get ALL THE SPACE EVER! I wasn't even in his way! That wasn't even the first person who had a problem with my reusable bag, as there was some lady on a crowded Canada Line train who said "You're excused" after I entered the train at 49th and got a seat.

When I got to Jon and Harmony's at 2:10, the door was open since it was still pretty hot, so I just got to invade the living space. The kids greeted me with "YOU BREAK IT - YOU FIX IT!" but calmed down and told me that they'd gone to Granville Island today. We heard about a Canada Line emergency - thank goodness that it didn't affect me, only Olympic Village to King Edward! (it did affect Jon coming home from teaching) The skating lesson went fine - I told Harmony that no, I didn't have to pay anything for the eye ultrasound or cataract surgery!

Hiero told me that he didn't like it when I farted - he just likes his own farts. Okay, then! We had pizza, more laksa, blueberries, and corn on the cob for dinner after I read some more Robert Munsch stories. I got to hold a content baby Beckett for a while (and show him a few books) when Jon was finishing up with his piano student Curtis, but the baby started crying almost as soon as Curtis left! (before, I told Curtis to "quick - play some music!" when Beckett started fussing at the start of the lesson) I went through the Translink route map with the kids when Harmony grew tired of it, and left at 7:30, just managing to get a 49 before getting home at 8:10 on a 401. I was NOT waiting 20 minutes in the muggy heat!

I called Barry at 8:35 AM to tell him about the mouse on the glue trap which I discovered last night. When he came by at 11:15, he said that it was STILL MOVING! We both heard it squeak, so I wanted him to just take it out of here as fast as possible. I left for Jon's at 2:40 today after DOUBLE COFFEE TIME (stopping by Kam Do Bakery for a BBQ pork bun) with the Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper chips, Ragusa Noir chocolate bar, heart-shaped Ferrero Rocher chocolates, Harmony's early birthday card, and the Alter Eco Burnt Caramel / Salt and Malt / Blackout / Brown Butter chocolate bars. (she thanked me for it later - Jon said his face would melt off with all those chips!) I had to wait a few minutes for them to get home from school, and Ayler immediately wanted to show me his "100 Days of School" pasta craft and something else. He's definitely learning to write and to draw flowers!

They played with toy trains, read Robert Munsch and other books, ate hummus / banana bread / seashell pasta (they could NOT have my white wine or spicy green sauce with white beans), discussed his field trip to the Orpheum to see a symphony and STAR WARS, and Ayler showed me his school break schedule to ask about the dates and what they meant. I think Ayler can read simple words on his own now, which is great! I also did some dishes while giving the kids some (diluted) orange juice and more banana bread. Later, Ayler tried to walk acrobat-style on top of the couch, and Hiero wanted to go jump on the mattress that they were giving away - NO! Ayler made a "Snot Construction Zone" out of his red Chinese gelatinous dessert of leen-goh, and Hiero said, "If you eat a people, you will go to jail for a long time [reasonable] and [my parents] will go too! [HUH?]" HAHAHAHA! Jon did put Hiero in a box, though! I got home at 8 on a 407, which is pretty par for the course!

COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played New Jersey at 4 today, but lost 3-2. Then I went out at 6:50 after the game ended. I got two 18-packs of assorted Christmas cards / 12 Vancouver postcards (Gastown, BC Place, and the RCMP!) / three assorted packs of Christmas stickers / a pack of 40 golden Christmas decorative stickers (Poinsettias! Holly! Wreaths! Snowmen! Santa! Winter!

Thank goodness that the 407 bus driver saw me running for the bus and waited a few extra seconds, and waited a bit for me to retrieve my bus pass from my pocket! I definitely thanked him for that, besides my customary "Thank you" when I get off the bus! I got home at 8:10, which is MUCH better than a while later!

FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF Bestiary!


THIS ENTRY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NON-ALIGNED TAGS.


This is the complete bestiary for FINAL FANTASY 5 SPOOF, and all screenshots are from my own playthrough. I'd like to say that this GameFAQs bestiary document helped me a lot; thank you! (as did this one, for more precise directions in certain places) Also, this walkthrough helped me a lot, too! Actually, I was tired of suffering through emulator slowness and game glitches x8, so input a code for a 100% complete Bestiary. These maps will help, since the world map DOESN'T FUCKING WORK IN THIS GAME!

This is a good RPG Classics page for Pro Action Replay codes!

CHECK THE MAP WITH THE Y BUTTON, NOT THE R BUTTON!

Fire-Powered Ship puzzle directions.


Notes to self: Activate the All Characters Have All Abilities code, and then TAKE IT OFF, or else the game will get incredibly frustratingly SLOW. Also, take all codes off before going to the Big Bridge, or attempting to find the Phantom Village! VISHNU VEST EQUIPMENT! Speaking of equipment, EQUIP KRILE WHEN SHE JOINS THE PARTY AFTER GALUF'S DEATH! As far as codes go, the "have 99 of all items" code makes the game freeze and have sound issues!

After much frustration over three hours, I managed to defeat Omega by using the power of Mirage Vests (IMAGE STATUS) / Coral Rings (fire protection), and a pre-emptive strike! I used it to power up my blades with Thundaga Spellblade, then used Rapid-Fire on Faris... I think it was a fluke!

Also, to reset the breath timer in the sunken tower of Walse, climb up the fourth floor vine to get to that chest! I finally actually defeated Famed Mimic Gogo at the bottom of the sunken Tower of Walse by using the Dragoon / Dual-Wield x4 strategy! It was pretty tricky since I wasn't sure that all my characters would survive at least five Meteor attacks, but two of them did! Got garbled text as part of the bugged fight, too... "Dragged into another dimension! Odin: All right, that's far enough! Turning to stone... Can't escape! Countdown to Pestilence... 4 KO'd! Countdown to Eruption... 5 KO'd! Level halved! KO'd!":D

To get the Drakenvale Golem in the Bestiary, defeat the dragons first and THEN defend until he thanks you!

Stick "READ AHEAD" on a character other than Lenna! To prevent having to input all the codes over and over again, SAVE / remove all codes / then close and reopen the emulator! They should all still be there!

For the Moogle in the Forest of Moore to move after the trees have been set on fire by Tzepish, save the game in the cave and then reset. The creature should NOT be blocking the entrance.

Airship in World 3: It's just above Surgate Castle, east of the Pyramid.

I thought Trump was after North Korea, but WHO KNOWS. Then I called Chrystal at 1:15 to let her know what was up, of course. She appreciated it - of course I'll call her later to confirm!


Crazy Kefka at the final battle of FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS! "Soon I will break free of this wretched HUMAN body, and drain the life of every living creature!"




The FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party responds, "The Dark Crystals have been destroyed! You can't expect to win against us!"




Kefka as the Dark Cloud says, "All but one... The Shadow Crystal!! It shall protect me and destroy YOU!"




Kefka is the Dark Cloud! )

Julie S. reminded me via Facebook chat to check my mail for the thing she sent me. So I did, and discovered a small box. I got a card with cherries on it, a Canucks-themed bracelet, and various lion / giraffe / elephant / seal / fox / bear / cat / Leonardo / Michaelangelo / Donatello / Raphael / Snow White / Cinderella / Disney stickers from Julie in the mail today in a Paul Newman's Organic Popcorn box - THANKS! :D

I also found a photo of the bracelet online by Googling "Canucks metal bracelet," too! WHEE!


Bracelet in Canucks colors!
