glowing_dragon: (Bubble Tea)
After COFFEE TIME, Tryanna from Pathways picked me up at 12:30 today so we could do some food shopping, but I'm fairly sure I lost my voice at some point overnight. We talked about Croatia, her smoking, Pho, tripe, bubble tea, and more. I got bananas, two birthday cards for Jeremy (beer!) and Christon, on-sale Paldo spicy cheese noodles, Dove lemon shampoo, Dove lemon conditioner, Dove hydration conditioner to go with the GLISS shampoo, on-sale store brand Western Family echinacea, Vedan spicy mushroom and cuttlefish noodles, Nissin sesame oil noodles, on-sale Paldo garlic Namja Ramen, on-sale October Fifth Bakery lotus red bean mooncake.

Also got on-sale Chunky Soup (Beef / Vegetable Beef / Chicken Noodle Soup x2 / Clam Chowder), on-sale original Laksa La Mian noodles, NEW limited-edition Doritos Sonic Sour Cream chips, on-sale store brand Western Family white vinegar, Olivina margarine with olive oil, three cans of Fat Choy straw mushrooms, an on-sale Hungry Man microwaveable turkey dinner / a Swanson's turkey pot pie for Thanksgiving weekend, an on-sale Pepsi bottle for attempted toilet cleaning purposes, on-sale Earth's Own almond milk, and on-sale Lipton tomato garden vegetable soup. Tryanna wanted to know if we could have coffee afterwards since they apparently have a budget for that, but I wanted to get my frozen stuff home and focus on resting my voice instead. Maybe if my voice was 100% today! At least she said that she wanted to help me more often if Barry couldn't!

Mom and Dad picked me up at 5:50 with a bunch of stuff, detailed below. We went to White Spot because I vetoed Dinesty. It's my birthday, so I get to choose, dammit! We talked about Steph, this upcoming winter, Jon needing to be a parent (I don't care!), Netflix, Auntie Grace, Dave He, Auntie May and Auntie Vivian and AWANA at church (like I'm going back?!), Phil / Uncle Peter / Auntie Ying, my curried red quinoa, Mom "ordering" coffee (she did NOT!), attempts to get me to ask Eric for a ride on Sundays (NO - I LIKE MY FREEDOM!), and pickles. I got home at 7:25, which was fine.


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: one funeral home mint from Dignity Funeral Home, a birthday card, $10 in cash, a 15-pack of Royale double roll toilet paper, Strawberry Shine NIVEA lip balm, 20 GUM flossers, 7 Simple Cleansing facial wipes for mascara removal, a Life jasmine and cactus flower extract purifying face mask, Dove cucumber and green tea body wash, a mini-pack of President's Choice Kleenex, Burt's Bees nourishing lip balm with mango butter, and Schwarzkopf Professional GLISS Hair Repair shampoo.

Also: a Savvy Home facial tissue box (90!), a 132-count Royale tissue box, Got2b Rockin' It dry shampoo, two Playtex Sport Combo ultra-thin pads and two unscented tampons, one small Purell hand sanitizer bottle, a small Dove Cool Essentials antiperspirant, a GUM Ora-Clean toothbrush, Essence volumizing lash powder, a Schick Quattro for Women raspberry razor blade, and Yes To coconut cleansing wipes.

Plus: a Hotel Wing International Chinese toothbrush and toothpaste, a light blue bra with yellow dots (which is not even my size), two thin Rabbit and Bears Happy Day "The Moment" notebooks, an 8-pack of April Cornell note cards, a blue-grey vest from The Tog Shop, light purple socks, a pink pajama set with hearts on them, a yellow pajama set with hearts on them, and one very light blue child-sized Jockey pair of underwear. {31}


Engrish on the Rabbit and Bears notebook: Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels / Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes / Silver-white winters that melt into springs / Feel the warmth city, nothing to fear / To be true for you and me.


From Reddit: Happy birthday to you! Cats, guitars, balloons, and hearts!

I was up at 6 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT!

I dreamed that I somehow flushed the toilet dry, which resulted in a flooded bathroom (?!) right before I had to leave to meet my family somewhere in Bellingham. Not that meeting them would have happened anyway, although I watched a show on separating conjoined triplets to de-stress later! "Where's Daddy?" "He's before God." No! Tell your kids that Daddy is driving a tour bus into the States for a music convention, which is the truth!

I also forgot to pack my passport and was turned away at the beauty kiosk with bus stops right before the border. I also had to walk a bit before finding just the right shortcut to go into Richmond and home. Then I emailed / messaged her sister to let her know, but my mom would still be PISSED. Thank goodness it was just a dream!


My periods before birth control: Surprise, motherfucker!!! My periods on birth control: "Right on time yet again." "Thank you." with tea!




Celes, Sabin, Edgar, and Setzer come across the Dragon's Neck Colosseum in FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS. It's Ultros! "Look at me! I'm a receptionist! G'fa, ha, ha!"




Ultros gives the FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party some advice: "Now, you'd better watch what you bet, or that monster Chupon'll just come and take it from ya!"




Then the FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party comes across the last Imperial Trooper. "I'm an Imperial Trooper! Probably the last of 'em... I have some valuable information for you!"




The last Imperial Trooper gives the FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party a hint: "TALK TO THE EMPEROR TWICE. Use this when you've found the place where the Emperor hid a secret treasure."

After I had COFFEE TIME, I called Kids Physio after Googling the phone number. They actually DID have my red Compass Card because someone found it (presumably in the bathroom), which is a relief! I opted to have them hold it until Ayler's next appointment on Wednesday. Barry picked me up at 12:30 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got on-sale Olympic organic yogurt x2 (peach / raspberry), JOY dumplings (pork and vegetable / lamb and onion / pork and chives), on-sale store brand bottled water x2 for $5, Nature Clean Oxygen Bleach (for $12?!) Body Zone purple / black fingernail clippers, $1 Coffin Crisp / $1 Ghostly Kit-Kats, a Cookies and Cream Kit-Kat, Sour Cream and Bacon Ruffles chips, a peanut butter Oh Henry chocolate bar, $1 store brand Western Family mixed beans x12 (last day of the sale!), on-sale store brand perogies x2 (potato and cheddar cheese / potato and cottage cheese), Koka spicy black pepper noodles, and a can of store brand mushroom pieces. Also purchased some Juzz Mee curry noodles (partly because I told Shiv on Discord this morning I would), Curry Mee white curry noodles, Penang white curry noodles, Silk almond milk x2, on-sale Six Fortune beef noodles, on-sale Sau Tao black pepper noodles, Vedan Bah Kut tea noodles, and pink Excel White gum x3.


From a friend of Ryan's: Just eat it! The Nike swoosh is a pizza slice, hahaha!

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!

Eric Ho called me at 5:35 to say that he was heading down to Richmond, and alerted me to the fact that Nathan was back in town recently, so of course I checked out Nathan's Facebook page! It's true: Daniel is now a Doctor! Also, their mom Auntie Lillian is going to have a small park at Yukon and 17th named after her soon! He got here at 6:10, and I had the parking pass ready, of course! Then he said that he was in his neighborhood, and bumped into Mike. Eric actually deliberately waved him down to talk to him even though he doesn't like Mike much: apparently, Mike's gone on fewer cross-border trips, but I think that's because Hagen's had reduced their requirements for picking up packages from every two weeks to a month. Anyway, Eric had apparently told Mike that "Leslie and I have fun when we hang out and it's not so empty." I had to get him to translate this, which apparently meant that there wasn't a feeling of missing the other person! (and to see if he missed stuff like that, too) At least Mike apparently got the message since he went quiet afterwards, and Eric mentioned now that Mike wasn't his cup of tea, either - JUST LIKE BILLIE DID! Of course, I had seemed happy to him back in 2013 and 2014...

We also talked about his new glasses (the other pair broke), my good eye for noticing that, future hangouts, wanting to extend me the courtesy of a heads-up, the Creamsicle ice cream, LeBron James and his dynasty, Sidney Crosby compared to Alexander Ovechkin, his not liking Richmond drivers, Nick Bonino, EA Sports and playing past players vs. modern players, a future road trip, Michael Jordan, a zero-zero tie (0-0 tie) till very late in the game, and Shania Twain being on TV at the game in Nashville before he finally left at 8:05. Yes, we ate McDonalds fries / sour cream and onion Pringles chips / Efruti gummy candy / wasabi Pringles chips / Creamsicle ice cream / Kettle chips in Moscow Mule flavor / Lays sour cream and sriracha chips. Now I'm going to relax with video game music for the rest of the night because having someone talk at me for three hours is pretty draining!

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 6 to meet Chrystal at the Broadway Station London Drugs. She definitely appreciated her 35 index cards for her 35th birthday, the Rose and Robin solid chocolate 200g Easter bunny, the giant Dreamworks Trolls milk chocolate heart, the two Christmas Mix packs of Coconut / Red Apple / Very Cherry / Green Apple Jelly Belly jellybeans, the carrot cake Hershey's Kisses, the Ziploc bag full of Hershey's Eggies / Lindt milk chocolate Easter eggs / Lindt white chocolate Easter eggs / Lindt dark chocolate Easter eggs / Brookside Merlot Blackcurrant and Brookside Chardonnay Grape Peach chocolates, and her very belated birthday card! We eventually headed over a block to Menya Japanese Noodle House after I'd glanced at the MAD magazine for sale. (I can't believe I didn't LIKE the Facebook page until I got home tonight!) The place had wood stumps for chairs, which is interesting! I got their Shoyu ramen while we caught up on life - her uncle moving to a Richmond townhouse somewhere, Emily and Mike not having chairs or a table yet, my seeing Uncle Peter and Auntie Ying on the 402 bus yesterday, her nephew Ethan loving numbers, and walking around London Drugs later.

I was going to get WASABI Pringles with my Heluva Good Jalapeno Cheddar chip dip, but ended up getting the sour cream and onion Pringles instead since the green colors were very similar AND they were right next to each other on the fucking shelf! I only found that out after opening them up when I got home at 8:55 on a 407 to try one, and the online shopping options on the London Drugs website only take credit cards and selected Interac cards; the shipping options are equally ridiculous, since $7.95 or $35.95 for ground shipping or UPS Western Canada delivery is exorbitant!

Since I got up at 7:25 AM, it was COFFEE TIME! Later, I called Seafair Safeway customer service to see if I could return Oakridge Safeway items there instead. Since I could, I made plans to go there to return the Tostitos / Mrs. Renfro's salsa since I can't open it even with the jar opener! Before going out at 12:30, I called Chrystal at work to confirm things for tomorrow since I didn't want to waste a shower later, and we are on! At Seafair, they gave me grief about not specifying the brand and type of salsa since they didn't sell the Ghost Pepper there, so they'd have to throw it out. That's not my problem if I just want to return it - and no, I was not going back to the Oakridge Safeway!

When I got on the 402 back to Brighouse, I was surprised when someone called my name. It turned out that Uncle Peter and Auntie Ying were on that bus, having come from a massage and then doing some shopping later! So of course I talked to them all the way to Brighouse! I browsed Shoppers briefly, then bought Heluva Good dip (French Onion / Dill Pickle) which has a limited shelf life but is WAY EASIER to open, Welch's prune juice (which I could open WITHOUT the jar opener for now), NEW Tasty Bite Thai Lime rice, NEW Tasty Bite Thai Penang Ginger Curry sauce, and a dark blue GOODY toothbrush holder at London Drugs before getting home at 2:40 on a 407 in the rainy weather.


GOODY toothbrush holders!

After I had COFFEE TIME and called London Drugs customer service to find out when their current sale ends on Rubbermaid dish drainers (May 28), Barry picked me up at 12:45 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I bought on-sale Classico pasta sauce x2 (Four Cheese and Tomato / Pesto), noodles, a shower pouf, Teriyaki Rice / Noodles Sidekicks, preserved vegetables, on-sale Cheemo perogies x2 (Country Mushroom and Potato / Bacon / Romano Cheese), pork and tri-treasure / lamb and onion / pork and vegetable / pork and chives JOY dumplings at the Big Crazy price (which saves me a trip out there if it's the same price), on-sale store brand paper towels, and JML chicken and mushroom noodles. I also got on-sale Western Family French Vanilla ice cream, NEW Pillsbury poutine Pizza Pops in a special edition (I love the alliteration!), NEW Pillsbury cheese pizza bites, NEW Pillsbury pepperoni pizza bites, Juzz Mee curry noodles, a BC roll for $3.99 (better than the 22-piece $10.99 assorted rolls if the expiry date is still tomorrow, May 25), Vedan noodles x2 (Spicy Mushroom / Cuttlefish and Mushroom), and on-sale Ruffles chips x3. (Loaded Potato Skins / Sour Cream and Bacon / All-Dressed) I also saw preserved Cordia seeds while I was in the Chinese jars aisle, so made a note of that to tell Citrus so he can tell his sister.

While I was at the store, I helped a random white guy with some Nissin black garlic oil noodles, and told an old grandma that her shawl looked pretty. (it had Japanese women with fans on it!) She at least thanked me! When I got home at 2:10, Barry did agree to help me with changing the batteries on the phone in my bedroom, which is good. Afterwards, I paid my Shaw bill online today, then somehow unplugged my computer speakers while trying to figure some stuff out! My cashier recognized me, and so we chatted a bit - his name is Ray, and he has a white half-beard thing. I left again at 6:30 to London Drugs, where I got a new on-sale dish drainer (April 11, 2015) on Aisle 1 / on-sale purple GUM Comfort Slide flossers since today was the last day of their being on sale currently / an on-sale Slinky toy plus an on-sale Redbox pre-historic dinosaur toy set with trees (#24359) for Ayler's birthday.

I got a much more helpful computer associate this time (yesterday's associate had told me to go to the front for checkout and didn't seem interested in customer service), who sold me a black Microsoft Wired 600 keyboard for $20. Thank goodness it worked when I got home at 8:30 (just missing a 407 and having to wait for the next one), after a mini heart attack when it initially wouldn't work to put in my password at startup! This one is quieter and much lighter, too! Time to email Harmony to see when a good time would be to drop off the gifts, or see Ayler too, I guess. NOW MY MOUSE AND KEYBOARD ARE FREE OF MIKE AND HIS TAINT!
