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.

From Pete and Hockey Memes: "What do the Flyers have in common with the Titanic? They're both at the bottom of the Atlantic." I could have sent this to my ex-friend Jimmy, but he’d get too hurt by it, which was something I did not want to do at the time.

The Canucks played Columbus at 7 tonight, and lost 5-0 for a dubious record of ten shutouts this season so far, which is the most in the NHL.

COFFEE TIME! Christon emailed us to propose a hockey hangout next Saturday (the 9th) at Jeremy's because Chinese Eric wants to have one. I SEE HOW IT IS! He can sacrifice a night from wedding planning for HIM, but not for my birthday?! HA! I'll have to walk to Brighouse station AGAIN for the second time in four days in a row! UGH! White Eric can't make it because of his own hockey stuff. The Canucks played Vegas at 1 today, and lost 3-0.

glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)
From Sara H. and Tumblr: Things that English speakers know about English word order, but don't know we know! I definitely sent this to Corey on Discord as soon as I saw it posted on my wall on Facebook!

BurntCopper posts a photo. "Adjectives in English absolutely have to be in this order: Opinion-size-age-shape-color-origin-material-purpose Noun. So you can have a lovely little old rectangular green French silver whittling knife. But if you mess with that word order in the slightest, you'll sound like a maniac. It's an odd thing that every English speaker uses that list, but almost none of us could write it out. And as size comes before color, green great dragons can't exist."

WindyCityTeacher: "Whoa! What?!"

Ice-Light-Red: "That is profound. I noticed this by accident when asked about adjectives by a Japanese student. She translated something from Japanese like BROWN BIG CAT, and I corrected her. When she asked me why, I bluescreened."

I called Barry at 8:50 to let him know about the dead mouse. When he called me back at 11 to say that he would be here in a couple of minutes, I checked the corner with the TV since I'd heard noise there as well last night. Yup, there was another dead mouse, this one in a glue trap. Good thing I checked, since Barry was here at 11:10 to remove them!

Steph said that Fraser loves the assorted emoji stickers. "Look, Mama, a poo!"


He loves all the assorted options!




"Look, a poo!"




Fraser and his mail bonanza of stickers! :D




From Reddit on Nov. 26, 2018: No, RupertOffy, liking someone's profile photo on Facebook is NOT even vaguely political, and there's no such thing as being used as a social weapon at school... if you mean "bullying," say so like normal people do!

glowing_dragon: (Vancouver Canucks hockey!)
The Canucks played Winnipeg at 7 tonight, and lost 1-0 thanks to a goal in the last 90 seconds of the game! UGH!


From Not Always Right: If someone wishes you various holiday greetings, and you are not of that persuasion, you say... "Thank you! You too!" because honestly, if you can't see past the words of the wish to its good intent, then it's not the holiday well-wisher who's broken, it's you. Be a good human. Wish someone well this holiday season. Use whatever expression you'd like.

I showered and did laundry today.


A Reddit idiot named TreKopperTe replied to me on Tuesday (October 23rd) with a correction for "resting bitch face": " *relaxed face." I DON'T CARE! NEVER tell me what to do when I'm describing myself or a commonly-known phenomenon! If you can't handle seeing the word "bitch," then maybe the Internet is not for you! Go back to family-friendly sites, please! A relaxed face is something else to me! (sleeping peacefully, for example)


From I Love Skulls: Tayler Holroyd?! Your parents opted for a BAD SPELLING of Taylor!




From Julie: Takeya?! That just reminds us of tequila...




From Julie: Michella is Takeya’s sister?!

After a flurry of emails last night and my COFFEE TIME this morning, Dad called me at 10:35 AM to say that he'd made an appointment for 2 tomorrow with Uncle Stanley's lady associate at Kingsway and Slocan. ("as you know, Uncle Stanley isn't feeling well..." Nope, I did not know that!) He and Mom will take me out to lunch beforehand, so they want to pick me up at 12. Fine, I guess! At least I don't have to bus all the way there! Not that I had to bus to Auntie Anita's Royal Bank location when Steph and I set up the plan originally in 2009! Thank goodness I have whiskey at home for later, hahaha.


From Reddit on September 21, 2018: Learning disabilities do exist. Discrimination against the disabled also does exist. I don't think an insistence on correct spelling is ableist, Frothulhu… also, you are "non-binary" according to your subreddit flair, so you need to PICK A GENDER AND STICK WITH IT! Much easier for everyone else!

COFFEE TIME! I left at 2 on a 414 to see Rachel at the Caring Place (talking a lot about Jimmy blocking me again last Wednesday / control / abuse / going away for no reason), then rushed home after that, just managing to get the 406, and getting home at 3:50 on a 407. The Canucks played the Penguins at 4 today, and won 3-2 in overtime. BROCK BOESER!


Amanda B. has a Facebook friend named KHYRSTEN Eve Mulé?! Bad spelling of KRISTEN or KRISTIN...

Son: "No, it's not. It's a penis. Who told you that?" Mom: "Well, I saw it in some of your brother's texts to his girlfriend, and when I asked, he said it was an alien. Wait, so 8=====D- {()} isn't an alien getting on a ship?" Son: "... No, Mom, it isn't."

I went out to the nearby medical clinic to get removal for hearing at 1:30 today, and still had to wait almost an hour, getting home at 2:25! At least now I can hear better!


Edit at 6:30 - I used up the last of my milk unwittingly, so I had to go out again at 5:35 on a 407 to London Drugs. I got Silk almond milk and on-sale Pepperidge Farms cookies x2. Strawberry thumbprint cookies and chessmen butter cookies! I got home again at 6 on another 407.

I went out at 3:40 on a 407 to get Knorr hot and sour soup mix x4, a new silver colander, and Samyang terrorist chicken bomb 2x Spicy noodles from Big Crazy. Then I went to Price Smart for Winter Creek raw oysters x2, red / black / blue Sharpies, 200 index cards, some Crayola felts, and on-sale Hainanese chicken, getting home at 5 on another 407. The Canucks played the Islanders at 7 tonight; the game went to overtime, and Vancouver won 4-3 on a goal by Leipsic!

Now I have to RETURN the Winter Creek oysters since I can't even open the jar with the jar opener! UGH!

From Not Always Working: Shela Philley?! That's not how you spell SHEILA!

Jessica Lai knows a woman named ZOWIE TAN?! I know David Bowie named his son Zowie, but that isn't an Asian name...




Good grammar is like personal hygiene - you can ignore it if you want, but don't be surprised when people draw their own conclusions.




From Janina: Lesbian... please, no dudes. "One day, I was sitting on my floor watching SESAME STREET. My fairy godfaggot flew into my room and said: "Listen here, you son of a bitch, you are going to be gay. Got it?" I nodded, and then she hit me on the head with her anti-dick stick. Poof... now I'm a lesbian!" This is what I say when people ask me why I'm gay.

Vanessa got her card already, which shouldn't surprise me even if I did mail it on Sunday. The Canucks played Colorado at 7 tonight; the game had to go to overtime, and Vancouver won 4-3! Yuri is also back on Discord, so YAY FOR THAT!


From Julie M. and Someecards: Being in a car does not make you become suddenly invisible. So stop picking your nose.




From SFX Off-Topic: Shelli Montague Tipping?! But what if she isn't into tipping?!




In FINAL FANTASY VI for the iOS, Sabin / Cyan / Gau make it to Nikeah after swimming through the Serpent Trench from Mobliz. They enter the town pub. This dancer tells Cyan about her boobs in an attempt to flirt with him: "Hey, do you like these? I call this one Humpty, and this one Dumpty!"

A sick Jon asked me this morning if I still wanted to make it to his place since his student had cancelled yet another Monday lesson (which I did), and then wanted to know if I could make it on Thursday from 3:30-4:30 since Harmony is working then instead of next Monday because she wants to spend time with Hiero on his actual birthday. Sure, I guess so! BYE WEEK, AHOY! After (MORE) COFFEE TIME, I left at 3:30 to make it to Jon's at 4-ish. The kids were eating and playing with puzzles, but seemed excited about school and new stickers. Ayler had drawn a purple house with lots and lots of floors, Hiero wanted to read a book with lots of flaps with me, Ayler asked a lot of questions about math and why Keith was sick ("he can't be sick in the summer!"), Ayler asked if he could have my fruity beer (NO!), and Ayler practiced his writing and told me that I should know better how to write because I'm an adult. I also passed that message on to Steph, haha.

Ayler asked whether people had gone to heaven if they were born in 1961 or 1948 (or 1914 or 1918) / whether people were still alive if they were born in 462 A.D. or 1018, Hiero loved his bulldozer, and we had gummy cars / curry stew / dumplings / sausage / (coconut) water for dinner. Randal had apparently cancelled too, maybe because of his dad. More playtime for me! Ayler wanted to take my hat off - I said no, which doesn't mean that he gets to say yes! We also talked about seeing his special Gr. 3 buddy Ethan on Thursdays depending on the class schedule, eating old marshmallows from a school craft (NO!), San Francisco in March, falling asleep on the bus, being tired, "Baby Baloo," Hillcrest, the pizza dinner on Sunday, seeing them again on Thursday, and my not staying later than 7 because I had to do some shopping before I got home.

Then I went to London Drugs for a Hilroy notebook since some paper towel got on the whiteout on the cover, a bubble mailer envelope, some hand sanitizer x2 (one of which will have to be returned because I can't figure out how to open it...), desperately-needed Softsoap hand soap refills x2 (juicy cucumber and crisp melon / vanilla brown sugar), and desperately-needed Silk almond milk. No thanks to the cashier commenting on EVERYTHING ("this is so heavy! why did you buy this?!"), I barely made it out the door in plenty of time to catch the 407 and get home at 8:30. Ugh!

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: a brown Tika sweater vest and a Ziploc bag full of Werther's Originals and other hard candies.


From Julie M. and Pinterest: Visual Anatomy Limited chocolates! They're anatomically correct!




From Krista and Pundora: Don't use a big word when a singularly unloquacious and diminutive linguistic expression will satisfactorily accomplish the contemporary necessity.

COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played Washington at 4 today, and lost 3-1, with a controversial goal which involved someone being crashed into the net. WHAT THE. I was also surprised that I am now a mod in Dave's Discord server. Not sure how I didn't notice that BRIGHT PINK / HOT PINK screen name color change before my discussion this afternoon with Erik about PMs and my roles. "Wait - I shouldn't be able to kick you..." "You're a moderator." "WHAAAAAT?!" No, Dave didn't tell me about it, but that's more than fine! I know why it happened now, though.


My ex-friend Matt's wife is named Holland Houdek?! Holland is a country (nick)name!




From Julie: Arnold Schwarzenegger! Arnyoung Schwarzenegger!




From OLD FAITHFUL Bathroom Reader #30: Dave Obey was a politician?!

I've been on Discord for a year now - whee! :D

GREEN TEA TIME AND COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played the Leafs at 4 today; the game unfortunately went to overtime plus a shootout, and Vancouver lost the game 3-2.


From Translink: Sherif Tarek? I think your parents were going for Sheriff, but misspelled it...




Wait a minute. Sherif Tarek is supposedly married to a guy named Cheen Amr?! What?!




From Not Always Working: Cat Xochiquetzal Amanigh?! Maybe he dresses up in drag! Actually, I've learned that he's trans. Fair enough!




From Reddit, AndyTuba, and Buttersafe: This demon says, "You should not have come here, human. Why do you cross through my domain?" The guy says, "I was on my way to the kitchen for a snack, and I got lost." The demon asks, "You ended up in the twelfth plane of torment on your way to the kitchen?" The guy responds, "I am not a clever man."

I decided to go out on the 407 to Yaohan, but that actually took fucking forever compared to going to the Canada Line and taking it to Aberdeen Station. Ugh, never again! I had some noodles with beef internal organs after buying Soo Spicy Szechuan beef jerky, Soo Keta wild Pacific salmon black pepper jerky, Szechaun Numbing Spicy noodles, and Spicy Squid noodles from Osaka Supermarket. Finally got home at 2:05, which is okay.

Harmony emailed the family about Hiero's birthday party later this month on the 21st at noon - at least I know where Pizzeria Barbarella IS, and it doesn't conflict with the hockey game later that evening or anything!


From Oddee: Reading this obituary, I don't want to know that Chan Holcombe's dad circumcised him with a pocketknife!




From Lancer on Youtube: Salsa the monkey is delivering Happy Boxes for Fassad in MOTHER 3. He goes to Mayor Pusher's house and meets Mayor Pusher and his wife Elmore. This is an oil painting titled "Mt. Oriander in Summer."

* card from Pathways

* Christon: "Happy Birthday, Leslie! I know this card makes fun of our age, but I have realized how long we have known each other, and despite all the different turns of events in our lives, we have been able to keep in touch through birthdays of friends and our own, so that has been pretty cool! Enjoy another year with good friends and food. I pray that this year be a good one for you! Cheers! Christon."

* Eric M.: "Happy 41st Birthday, Leslie. Hope you have a good year to come. The rides to and from church aren't as interesting without you on board ready to disembark at No. 4 Rd. and Alderbridge Way.
