This morning, it was time to put my shorts away and put another blanket on the bed. Then Jon decided to act like an entitled person, thinking that I could just bus to Commercial Drive from Richmond on my birthday, and threatening me that the kids wouldn't be there if I insisted that the dinner be at 6. Like, do they bug and bully and manipulate Harmony's side of the family into starting dinners at that early hour?! I'm about to cancel this whole idea of a "family" birthday dinner!


Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris finally make it to Jachol in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF. They meet this old man: "Welcome to Jachol, the town with the name that sounds too much like JACK HOLE to be a coincidence."




Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris finally make it to the Jachol Cave in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF. They open this chest to get the Thunder Whip, then decide to check it again. "There's a note inside... The great thief, Lonely Wolf, was here!" This is what happens if you let Lonely Wolf out of the jail in Walse Castle!




SEATH Jackson?! If it's pronounced as SETH anyway, why have the extra letter?!

After MORE COFFEE TIME, I left for Jon and Harmony's at 2. I stopped by the Kam Do Bakery to get a BBQ pork bun to eat on the train, then got to the house at 2:45 or so, right on time. I was delayed a couple of minutes by some neighbor lady with a dog who recognized me from Mom's Facebook photos. I didn't really mind talking to her, though. At least the door was open, probably because it was pretty hot outside! When Jon asked, I requested some water. The kids were eating some snacks when I got there: Hiero offered me his peach pit (no thanks!) and Ayler told me that they didn't have any more BBQ pork buns. That's fine, as I'd just eaten one! Then came the usual questions about how long ago and what time I'd eaten it, along with Ayler reciting all the Canada Line stations up to Olympic Village. He's getting smart!

While Jon's music student Justin was over, the kids were pretty loud, but made "gas stations" out of bristle blocks ("Gas gas gas!"), offered me grapes from their plate (sure!), made long trains, and put some tiny playing cards in numerical order. Apparently, they got them from the hospital ("not blood draws - a vaccine!") a couple weeks ago. At least they're not being taught how to gamble yet! Ayler also wanted me to stay for dinner, so I said I'd think about it. Hiero pointed out some holes in my socks - I swear I just bought them, but who knows? I'll just have to get some more later! Ayler asked me whether Jon would have two more music students; I had no idea! Hiero wanted me to read a book about 100 vehicles to him - sure, why not? It's better than fighting with your brother over toy trains and train tracks!

When Justin left, they "gave" him some train tracks, which he of course put back when they weren't looking. Easy to do! When the kids weren't there, I put back the noisy xylophone and the hammer to go with it, but Ayler was okay with catching the balls with his hand. Jon noticed and thanked me, then a woman came over for a piano lesson. Harmony got home and also invited me to stay for dinner, which was ratatouille / zucchini / corn on the cob. Harmony got home and also invited me to stay for dinner, which was ratatouille / zucchini / corn on the cob. She said that she was thinking about taking the kids to the Family Centre, the park, and then to physio on Wednesday, so my coming over around 12:30 would be good. No time for anything but mushroom soup, then!

Ayler said that we could eat the zucchini seeds, and I offered an apologetic "sorry" to Jon and that other student when Hiero squealed at seeing the corn on the cob. "Corn excitement over here!" Then Ayler said that I could stay for "the ice cream" - cute! Ayler thought that Randal would come over - who knows? He did, though. Hiero told me that Uncle Randal was there, so I asked how he knew. Apparently, he heard Randal's voice. Randal was indeed over for music lessons, and he said hi to me. To be polite, I offered him a frosty Hello back. Whatever, I don't care what the kids think. Then Ayler wondered if he'd eaten yet and whether he'd eat later. I said he might eat later if he hadn't already. Ayler asked why he was reading, so I said that he was probably doing it because he liked reading just like me. That's fine for me, but that's all I'm willing to concede.

Harmony brought out one Easter egg each for the kids (which she'd apparently forgotten about for some time), and Ayler asked why I wasn't having any. I had some chocolate at home already, I told him. Harmony said that I could go after dinner, which was fine by me. I actually had to put down my dinner bowl because Ayler requested a hug before I left, which is totally fine. Ayler also wanted me to stay overnight, so I asked him where I'd sleep. "Share Daddy's pillow!" was the answer I got. I told Harmony that she might want to explain why I could NOT sleep in the same bed as Jon, then left after saying bye to everyone except Randal. If the kids notice and say something, whatever. At 7:15, I was home on a 407, and fielded an email from ERIC HO saying that he'd even had to work on his birthday last week! Poor guy! He wants to catch a Lions game, but I looked at the schedule and the only near ones are in September! Not doable if he wants to hang out as August winds down!


From Julie S. and BFUK: I have 20 unread books at home, but I really, really need to buy this one. That's the story of a book lover!




From the r/hockey Discord server: Nick Bonino has an Italian background, so he's enjoying some homecooked spaghetti right out of the Stanley Cup!

Last night, Tommy was being pretty annoying with his continuous Facebook messages, so I gave him one-word answers till he apparently got the hint. Then he dragged me into a Facebook group chat with Helen and Jimmy at 10:15 PM to talk about Jen and defend her behavior. We weren't too impressed with his excuses and "staying neutral" for a manipulative and defensive and condescending "friend," to say the least! Then I was not happy when Tommy messaged me earlier today by saying that he'd allow me my space, but I could talk anytime I was willing to. What?! I later sent that screenshot to Helen and Jimmy in our own group chat. No, I am not rude for setting boundaries and telling him like it is. Jimmy apparently read everything at work today, at least.


Tommy is stupid!

The HALLOW'S END party (Sally, Clyde, and Craig) stay overnight at the Hotel Onett after defeating everything at the Giant Step sanctuary location. There's already some gibberish when the bellhop by the entrance tells them, "Bad news. We just increased our price to $2000 per person. Nah, I'm just kidding. Don't look so angry."




The HALLOW'S END party (Sally, Clyde, and Craig) go check out a purple-and-white house in Onett after defeating everything at the Giant Step sanctuary location. The world is falling apart already! "All that can be heard inside is the faint sound of static."

I went to London Drugs at 6 on a 401 to get some Silk almond milk because I'd finished my last carton, which expires on the 24th anyway. I decided to get some on-sale SunRype orange juice as well, and got home at 6:30 on a 407. Yay for bus efficiency!


3.78 litres of Sunrype pure apple juice!

NO!

Corey and I discussed Milo chocolate drinks (available here and in Malaysia, but not there?!), Tim Tams, hot chocolate, strawberry / chocolate NesQuik, and more hot drinks. He thinks that the Vancouver stoners offended Britney Spears - hahaha, I did hear about that, and think it amusing. Honestly, she can think what she wants, but man.

I got my first creep (Mark William Shaffran) in Wordscraper, who suggested highly inappropriate things regarding sex and drugs. I'm not a prude or sheltered or anything, but seriously! You don't tell me those things, especially in a GAME. Good thing the best revenge is WINNING, which I am doing by a handy margin in BOTH games he started. Thank goodness that I'll never play him again!

Poo nugget for Friday, Apr. 10: Where Beano Fails... - Chester Weimer received a patent in 1998 for airtight underwear that is lined with a charcoal filter. This garment supposedly lets you fart with impunity by absorbing the emitted noxious odors. Lest you decide to don this diaper and let loose in company, bear in mind that this device will do nothing to block out sounds. (I'm listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd's That Smell right now, so this is a quirky amusing coincidence!)
