COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played the Stars at 4 today... the game went into overtime and a shootout after Vancouver gave up ANOTHER 2-0 lead. At least the Canucks WON 3-2 this time!

From FML: Today, I fell asleep in class. As a joke, my professor used an airhorn to wake me up. I got so freaked out that I punched the girl next to me in the face. She got knocked out. FML. (THIS is why Andrew M. should NOT use airhorns!)




From Julie: Kiss me, I'm Highrish! Nice green T-shirt for St. Patrick's Day or 420!

I went out to London Drugs at 12:15 on a 414 (just missing the 401) to get Gillett bar mop towels x4 (I haven't bought them since January 2017?!), on-sale $2 Arm and Hammer All-in-One Complete Care Whitening Gel Toothpaste baking soda toothpaste with gel, on-sale Seventh Generation dish detergent (Free and Clear / Lemon), and on-sale Palmolive dish detergent (Green Apple and White Lily!) - I got home at 1:05 on a 401. The Canucks played the Hurricanes at 7:30 tonight, and lost 5-2.... UGH! I also showered tonight.


Final score for "That was definitely not a joke" Reddit comment: 2036 points!

I had COFFEE TIME before going out to see Rachel at 2 on a 414 to the Caring Place, then I quickly went home. Earlier, I did use my second pink $10 Mid-Autumn Festival gift certificate at PriceSmart for on-sale assorted Quaker oatmeal x2, on-sale Febreze air fresheners x2 (Hawaiian Aloha and limited-edition Pumpkin Harvest), Bobo's Oat Bars x4 for Jon and Harmony (Chocolate Chip / Maple Pecan / Coconut / Lemon Poppyseed), and on-sale Vileda sponges x9. I also bought Crown Royal Black whiskey (on the recommendation of my Discord friend Dan) and Steamworks Beer pumpkin ale at the liquor store. The Canucks played Carolina today at 4, and lost 5-3. Then I showered... and THEN realized that I bought air freshener instead of fabric refresher dedorizer! Ugh, I wonder if I can exchange it...

I left at 2 on a 414 to the Caring Place to see Rachel at 2. Then I got an eyeball ultrasound appointment this Thursday afternoon at 1:30 at St. Paul's, so I had to look up the transit there. I was home at 3:50 on a 407, which is pretty fast. The Canucks played the Oilers at 6 in the sixth and penultimate game of their 2018-2019 training camp, and lost 6-0 complete with a hat trick.


From Julie: Wisper Joerres?! Her parents didn't even spell it with an H, not that it would have been any better!

Jeremy emailed me to say that he could make it to Felico's - YAY! Barry called me at 8:35 AM to confirm the time that he'd be picking me up, and 10:15 sounded fine to me. Then Dr. Wise's office called me at 9:05 AM to say that they had "a situation" come up and they'd have to reschedule either today or Monday at the latest. Ugh, fine - make me drink coffee for no reason! :P

The office called me again at 9:45 AM (that was fast!) to reschedule, so I brought up my ride situation, but October 19 at 11 AM should tentatively work. I then called Barry to see if it would since he's going to Japan; since he didn't have his appointment book with him at that moment, he called me back at 10:05 to say that yes, it would. Then I called the doctor's office back to confirm things. Phew, now I can hopefully relax and take Neo-Citran when I feel less awake from the coffee!


Edit at 12: I told Jimmy about finding out that "the situation" was a carjacking downtown, and he tried making me laugh by saying "Car-jacking off." NOT FUNNY IN THIS CONTEXT, BABE! Totally inappropriate, like his Goodwill thrift store "gaylord" slang for a full forklift of donations!


No, FrontLawnFire, we do not use "uterus-haver"! Are you a special snowflake?!

Vanessa and Jason's birth announcement for their daughter Cassidy arrived in the mail - WOO! I went to Brighouse Library to find out that I was STILL blocked from Facebook status tagging after three days! Then I killed time at London Drugs and bought on-sale mini York Peppermint Patties for $4, and someone in line said she thought she went to high school with me: BECKY ALPIN! She still lives nearby, around the Price Smart, and was with her sons Kieran and Owen. No, I don't have the memory to retain everyone's student numbers these days! I showered when I got home at 4:20 on a 407, which I only had to wait two minutes for in the heat - PHEW!


From Julie and CRIME WATCH DAILY: Bronze Beckley is Crystal's best friend?! I know that Golden and Sylver's mom is also named Moni (Money), but WOW!




From Julie: HAITH?! H A I T H?!




Mini York Peppermint Patties!




But I WAS searching for "York Peppermint," London Drugs website... FAIL!

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.

I was up at 7:15 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! Then I discovered that my bags of NEW Dutch Gourmet chips (Mozzarella and Jalapeno Cheddar) were expired when I bought them last week (June 12 and June 20), so I at least tried some of both flavors before throwing them out. Then I noticed that my dumplings and other things had melted ice all over them, and decided to write Hester a note before the long weekend (and left a message on Barry's voicemail) - when I got up to her suite, she was actually there, but figuring out laundry tokens for some dude. GOOD TIMING! She read the note, asked what "adjusting" meant (?!), and decided to go with me to my suite right then. While there, she saw the dumplings bag which I'd kept for proof, adjusted the numbers again on BOTH the fridge and freezer, told me not to touch them, said she'd probably be back tomorrow, and was surprised that there was a long weekend coming up at all. Right after she left, Barry called me back to see what was going on. He said to let him know what was up tomorrow, then.


In DRAGON WARRIOR II, the party goes to Midenhall Castle. The vizier tells them, "Thou art now as strong as an ox and twice as good-looking. That is very good." What the heck kind of "compliment" is this?!

I dreamed that Chrissy and I were meeting Chrystal at Awana, and the kids were making various things out of construction paper. Then Vania said she had an announcement to make: "At some point, kids, you stop searching for a man. You realize that sometimes the people closest to you are really the one for you! My cousin Christine and I are now going to be in a relationship!" Auntie Vivian didn't seem to have a problem with that! Then we all went to a buffet which was part of a bus tour, and the guide asked whether we wanted to go to Wal-Mart. When most people raised their hands, she smiled and said that she knew Walmart was especially beloved among the people who took said tour. My cousins Aaron and Lillian came to see Grandma, and a little girl came up to me. She instantly put an arm around my shoulders, and I asked who she was, thinking that maybe she was Aaron's daughter. Nope, she turned out to be Lillian's daughter, and Lillian was together with her long-term partner Lucy. The dream ended when I was selecting six different kinds of freshwater clams / mussels on ice from the buffet... one of them was pretty huge! (complete with lemon slices!)

Triggers: Myles and Brittney's wedding banquet on Saturday (the buffet had mussels), seeing Vania's and Chrissy's pictures on Facebook, and seeing Lillian when she was in town. What the heck is with my subconscious?!

At least I was responsible and paid my Shaw bill... *sigh*
