The Canucks had Pre-Season Game #6 against the Kings today in BEIJING at 12:30 AM. Chris Tanev scored with two minutes left in the game; it went to overtime plus a shootout, and the Kings won 4-3. The crowd was really into it!


From BIG RIGS: OVER THE ROAD RACING for Windows: You're winner!




"Capcom! RESIDENT EVIL beef Raviolations in tomato and meat sauce! They're itchy! Tasty!" This made me think of Chrissy!




From GHOSTBUSTERS for the NES: Conglaturation! You have completed a great game, and prooved the justice of our culture. Now go rest our heroes!

I talked to Jimmy on FB messages for a good while this morning (which seems to be going well so far), and also Shiv on Discord, who says he's growing more fond of me by the day. Well, I still jokingly think he's a butthead, haha!


Fire beam dragon breath!




From CRIMINALLY LISTED: Kathy Netherland and Samantha Netherland?! Cool last name!




From Not Always Working: Cinthia Tram?! That's not how you spell CYNTHIA...

glowing_dragon: (Poop)
From Not Always Working: Mirissa Sorensen?! Her parents should have known that MARISSA is always spelled with an A!




From Not Always Right: Mooshki Mitchell?! Reminds me of a cow... MOO!




From Not Always Working: Naoma Howard?! Shouldn't that be NAOMI?!




From Not Always Working: Nicole Barbee?! This is notable only because it reminds me of Barbie dolls and the Aqua song BARBIE GIRL!




From Not Always Right: Phoenix Gray?! This special snowflake also apparently goes by "they"... really?! Just pick HE or SHE like normal people! He or she goes by "they" - I don't think so!

glowing_dragon: (French Toast)
From Not Always Working: Kristeen Borrowman?! That's not how you spell CHRISTINE or KRISTINE...




From Not Always Learning: Krysteena Foster?! That's not how you spell CHRISTINA or KRISTINA...




From Not Always Right: Kiki Lee Cooper?!




From Not Always Working: Lany Chabot-Laroche?! Shouldn't that be Lanie?! Reminds me of a miscellany and Almond Roca... but hey, CALVIN AND HOBBES! :D

glowing_dragon: (Default)
I got a baby intro photo card from Steph and Lisa in the mail for baby Henry - very nice! I'm not going to comment on the spelling of "shenanigans," though! Steph said that Shaun did comment on it, haha!


From Julie S. and Funnyjunk: I deal with my problems by painting over the squares on my Rubik's Cube!




Josh S. posted this: Instructions for waking a baby! Gentle kisses = YES! Airhorn = NO!




From George Takei: BEFORE! B-E-F-O-R-E! Not B4. We speak English, not bingo.

After some procrastination, I finally sent out an email and Facebook event invitations to my Level 41 Birthday Extravaganza on Sept. 24! I also got back to FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF after a six-week hiatus!


Here's a giant rubber ducky under Tower Bridge in London!




From The Devil's Panties: This Sandwich of Consent comic from August 4 reminds me of how SOME people act on the Internet. "Ew! I HATE hot dogs!" "Okay, cool. I wasn't going to share mine with you." "NO ONE should get a hot dog because I don't like them!" "But I LOVE hot dogs." THE SANDWICH OF CONSENT!




From Julie: Tierni Martins?! That is not a good way to spell TIERNEY!

glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)
From Not Always Working: Dianne Jessa Evah Richardson?! Who spells Eva with an H?!




From Not Always Right: Janis Papaloukas?! PAPA LUCAS!




From Not Always Working: Indiana Siobhan Inglorian?! I like the alliteration...

glowing_dragon: (French Toast)
After three years, I finally added Witwur Bob Robinson as a Facebook friend, and he added me back, so that's a good thing! But Willem unfriended me, which I guess is fine.


From Julie: NACOLE?! That should be spelled NICOLE! Geez, and I thought Nichole was bad enough... this just makes me think of nachos or Cole Porter or something




In FINAL FANTASY IV for Steam and the DS, the party (Cecil / Cid / Tellah / Yang) come across the Troia pub and go upstairs. They see this guy outside a hostess room. "How dare that greasy old greybeard try to take my Jenyfer!" In the GBA / Playstation versions, it was Jenny!




In the FINAL FANTASY IV fan translation for the SNES, the party (Cecil / Cid / Tellah / Yang) come across the Troia pub and go upstairs. They see this hostess girl inside one of the rooms, "Give me a guy with no chest hair next time." What?! HAHAHA!

glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)
Today is Humility Day! I sent Kevin an email earlier to wish him a happy birthday, OF COURSE!


From Not Always Right: Chelsea Gravil?! Reminds me of Gravol, hahaha!




Apparently, Chelsea Gravil is in a relationship with someone named Michaila Eshelman. That's not how you spell MICHAELA!




From Not Always Right: Alison Steiner?! Reminds me of Adelbert Steiner from FINAL FANTASY 9...




From Baby's Named A Bad Bad Thing: Andrewina McCubbin?! Does Andrew REALLY need a feminine form?!




From Not Always Right: Josh Dull?! I hope he doesn't live up to his last name...

glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)
I had a dream where Jimmy was driving me and Tommy in a van somewhere, and Jimmy kept saying that he would choose Tommy over me, even as he dropped him off at a house somewhere before going into Richmond (where we both lived for whatever reason) and hanging out with me at a crowded conference. Okay then, subconscious! I'm probably going to make a new Facebook music group called COME AS YOU ARE, too. Tommy would automatically be blacklisted because of my rule of not typing like a moron. Punctuation is important! Jimmy says he wouldn't choose him over me, so we'll see.





"Your Intellect Eclipses Your Isolation"




You are constantly seeking to know more about the world. Understanding is always your key to happiness.
You may not be a naturally social person, but you connect with others freely when shared interest, knowledge, and passions are involved.

You are curious about the world and new ideas. You are open to changing your mind, and are constantly collecting information.
You are not quick to judge someone, even if you think you disagree. You seek to learn more instead.






Not sure about the last two sentences, especially right now at my stage of life! I can be quite comfortable judging people, especially if they act defensive / manipulative / supercilious / toxic! Trust me, I had to deal with at least one of those people last week! No, thanks! I have no time for that!

From Not Always Working: Haaris Aytishaam Mahmood Qureshi?!




From Not Always Right: Anatacia Howell?! Shouldn't it be spelled Anastasia?




From Not Always Working: Atticus Couger?!




From Not Always Right: Brian Gnoyb?! I think that last name is cute since it reminds me of gnomes!

glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)
Jon sent me a Facebook message at 9:40 about possibly helping with the kids on Monday afternoon, and mentioned that he'd let Harmony arrange Wednesday with me. Sure, why not? That reminded me to call Barry AGAIN at 11:45 to see if I could change our appointment time since that's also on Wednesday. This time, I left a message! He called me back shortly after, saying that he'd been going to call me because he also wanted to change the appointment time since he'll be in Vancouver for longer than he thought. YAY FOR GOOD TIMING! Thursday afternoon at 12:30 works for me!


From Not Always Right: Kai Drawwater?! Draw Water?! Now I want fish and chips, too...




From Not Always Right: Katrin Schirmir?! The last name is rhymy, and the first name looks incomplete. It should really be Katrina! She also claims to be an introvert (but uses it in the "social anxiety" way), claims to be part of the LGBT spectrum (yet is married to a man), and always repeats people's jokes back to them when she isn't commenting 20 times on one story alone...




From Not Always Working: Kristen Parlee? Parlee as in "parley" spelled correctly, as in TALKING?!




From Not Always Working: Keera Ann Fox?!




From Not Always Working: Keesha Turner?! I bet she's black...

glowing_dragon: (LJ Drama)
THIS ENTRY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE NON-ALIGNED TAGS.


Today is Left-Handers Day! I had to deal with a lot of online drama this morning, which involved some rude and condescending Penguins fan named Jennifer who thought that she had an IQ of 169, and that my "attitude problem" could be solved by talking to her. I don't THINK so! Thank goodness Helen Y. understood, while Jimmy could definitely relate, and Tommy was okay with people leaving that Metropolis Division group chat on Facebook. Hopefully, Jimmy and I can forge more of a friendship! I think it's a good sign that he says he trusts me (gotta make sure that stays) and wants me to speak my mind / anything to him. I'll just take this friendship slowly, as per usual.


From Julie: Talton English?!




From Not Always Working: Khristy Monigold?! The only acceptable spellings for that name are Christy and Kristy. MAYBE Kristi or Cristy.




In FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS, the party finally makes it to the Ancient Castle dungeon. They find Queen Yunalesca's Diary in a room to the right of the throne! "A book, with a gem-encrusted cover... Queen Yunalesca's Diary."




In the GBA version of FINAL FANTASY VI, the diary is simply "The Queen's Diary." In the SNES version (not pictured), the diary is even more simple: "Queen's Diary." It says, "The Queen's Diary... I have fallen in love with Odin. It is a forbidden love, I know... But the flames of passion obey not rule or reason..."




This is from the SNES version: If Terra is in the FINAL FANTASY VI party at this point, she will have something to say after everyone reads the Queen's Diary. "Love between a human and an Esper..." Yes, that is her defining character trait!

glowing_dragon: (No Netspeak!)



"You Are the Crust"




You are a solid person, and you tend to be the foundation for any relationship or project.
While you are the rock for others, it doesn't mean that you are basic or boring. You have a lot of complexity to you.

You have a strong personality and can be a bit overwhelming one on one. You really shine in a group setting.
You know how to make things complete without even trying. You have both a bold and comforting presence.







From Julie: I stopped and waited at this sign for 20 minutes, and zero people did motocross tricks over a rainbow...

BAD SPELLING! It's not "an zero people"!

I was up at 6:30 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! My glasses arm broke at approximately 7 AM this morning, so since I was going to go out to the nearby medical clinic anyway (removal for hearing!), I went to Factory Direct / Factory Optical. At least this time, I don't have Korey trying to manipulate me into seeing him instead (and into being "best friends" with Randal) like I did in early January 2008, although white Eric's concern about transit was good! The Canada Line took me to Factory Direct / Factory Optical way sooner than transit did back then, too!

My only problem was being unable to find my spare glasses in any drawer! Before I left, I called the medical clinic to see about their walk-in schedule. I got an appointment at 4:30, so I went out to the glasses place first. It was definitely more convenient to use the Canada Line to bus to Broadway and Ash: just get off at Olympic Village and walk not even half a block! The repair cost $25! I got home at 12:45 on a 407, at least. Then the clinic called me at 4:15 to check whether I was still coming in - of course! Dr. Schmaltz (?) was filling in and did my removal for hearing in an efficient manner, so I got home at 4:50. Not bad!


From Not Always Right: Kiliano Best?!




From Not Always Right: Jonathon Side?! Sorry, but that is an incorrect spelling of Jonathan!




From Not Always Right: Stina Wargo Kolling?! Couldn't her parents have gone with Christina instead?!




From Not Always Right: Storm McCreery Rye?! Makes me think of storm rye whiskey, if there's such a thing!




From Not Always Right: Muh Legy?!

glowing_dragon: (French Toast)
Since I was up at 8 AM today, it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! I went out at 10:25 on a 407 and was finally able to make it to the Dollar Tree and Big Crazy today on a 403 from Brighouse before it got TOO hot outside! I got a can of Success mushroom pieces, Knorr mashed potatoes in chicken gravy, and Knorr mashed potatoes in beef gravy. (I had to check if I could microwave them first, of course!) I'm thankful to have the option again to purchase frozen food again: pork and tri-treasure x2 / lamb and onion / pork and chives JOY DUMPLINGS from Big Crazy! Inspired by CuyaDK, I also got some Samyang 2x Spicy Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen x4 at Big Crazy, plus Knorr hot and sour soup mix x3 since I was there anyway. I got home at 11:35 on a 407 from London Drugs, which is good. I think I'll wait on ice cream, since I don't care much for the prices or sizes for Häagen-Dazs at London Drugs right now. Of course, I might also change my mind on that, haha.





Samyang 2x Spicy Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen! Hochi! Chicken with a bomb!




Knorr mashed potatoes in chicken gravy!




Knorr mashed potatoes in beef gravy!




From Not Always Right: Desiray Poitras?! That should be spelled DESIREE!




From Not Always Right: Oshai Karen Brown?!




From Not Always Right: Rebecca Barker Sprang?! Like the past tense of "to spring up"?




From Not Always Right: Krystina Casimir?! I like the last name, although the first name would be better spelled as CHRISTINA.

After what happened earlier today, I think I really have to take a shower and do laundry!


From Not Always Right: Lindsi Skollingsberg?! That's not how you spell LINDSAY!

From Reddit: MICHEAL HALEY plays for the San Jose Sharks?! Why would you misspell your kid's name like that?! No, he's not the only one in the NHL, either...




From Reddit: MICHEAL FERLAND plays for the Calgary Flames?! Why would you misspell your kid's name like that?! No, he's not the only one in the NHL, either...




From Alexandra in my ex-friend Lucas's Discord: Johnny Depp says, "I don't know how to act my age. I've never been this old before."

From Janina: Every girl is crazy about a shark-dressed man at Super Bowl 2015.




From Engrish.com and Library of Most Controversial Files: This menu has stir-fried Wikipedia, stir-fried Wikipedia with pimientos, steamed eggs with Wikipedia...




When equipping Espers on the FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS characters, Ifrit gives Setzer "STRENGH +1" at level-up. What the heck is that, game?!




From Julie: Diasia sounds like a "posh" version of Daisy!

glowing_dragon: (Bert and Ernie)
Some flavor text in FINAL FANTASY VI: "You'd best be frozen!" as part of a Cold Dust attack.




From Not Always Working: Charles Srstka?! His last name has no vowels, JUST LIKE MINE! :D




From Not Always Right: Khasha Sky?! Reminds me of Kashi cereal...




From Not Always Right: Jacquelynne Bird?! That's a very interesting spelling of JACQUELINE... and the joke in the picture is Dayquil, Nyquil, and a Pokemon named Cyndaquil.




From Not Always Right: Ash Warden?!

glowing_dragon: (Crazy-Eyed Bear)
From Not Always Working: Sunny Green?!




From Not Always Right: Mirjan Bouma?!




From Not Always Right: Stephenie Labovitz?! Didn't her parents know how to spell STEPHANIE?!

From Not Always Right: Slava Fidel?!

I went out at 6:05 to get a Long John doughnut (for National Doughnut Day), raw Fanny Bay oysters (March 23, 2016), NEW Lays sour cream and sriracha chips, and NEW Breyers Creamsicle ice cream (because Reddit reminded me on May 29 [Monday] that it exists) from Price Smart, getting home at 6:55 on a 401.


Breyer's Creamsicle light ice cream and sherbet!




Lays sour cream and sriracha chips!




From Not Always Right: Praxus Maysalkiriiss?!




From Not Always Right: Shannan Griffith?! Her parents obviously didn't know how to spell SHANNON...




From Not Always Right: LaToya Warren?!




From Not Always Related: Liz Cember?! It should be Liz DEcember, hahaha!

glowing_dragon: (Bubble Tea)
I called Hester at 10:20 AM to see whether I could get laundry tokens (September 23, 2016) at that early hour, and I could. At least this time, she didn't bitch about how "not polite" I was on the phone (I'm not a morning person or very "fake polite" after getting up!), how I was taking "too long" to go up one floor or suggest that I take a set of stairs I never use because they're too far away on my floor yet convenient for her! Her husband Ni gave me the laundry tokens after taking care of an old man, and I counted them out first before going back to my own apartment.


From Sarah G. and Keri Beevis: Moist people aren't offended by the occasional typo.




From Reddit: Here's Jesus speaking to a crowd! So I was like, "I'm the son of God," and they were like, "No way." And I was like, "Yahweh."




I'm in a Med Reminders private chat on BGG's Discord channel server, and someone changed the icon to this on April 21. Alarm clock, pills, aspirins, capsules, and a check mark!

Eric M. called at 10:50 to say he'd be here ten minutes later to help me with my inadvertently unplugged speakers. He found some black wire with a green plug somewhere in back of my computer tower, which had been the problem. Then he plugged some things into the back of the computer tower, fixed the volume and microphone, and commented on my index cards and the dust. While he was there, I asked (knowing the answer) whether he was going to that Jacob's Well dinner at Jeremy's, then asked for a ride back. He wondered if I didn't also want a ride there: sure, as long as he wasn't doing anything beforehand! Then he cued up a numbers Youtube video, which Ayler would probably like if only he were allowed to watch Youtube. He left at 11:10 after I thanked him, which is fine. I'm glad to have sound / audio back!


I don't judge people based on race, creed, color, or gender. I judge people based on spelling, grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure.




From Janina: Great job on that thing you did!




From Engrish.com and Library of Most Controversial Files: Rape me okay, rob money are not.

I showered and did laundry tonight, especially since it's now warm enough to wear my MAN SHORTS around the apartment! WHEE! WOOHOO!

From Not Always Learning: Ashley Large?! What happens if she's SMALL? Might it be funnier if she was actually large? :D




From Not Always Learning: Benn Steer?! Nice last name... I'll steer the car! Also, Ben isn't supposed to be spelled with a double N!

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
Jason's birthday is April 1. After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 5 to meet Vanessa and Jason at Joyce Station by 6:30, I brought the peanut butter / peppermint Whittakers chocolate bars, the carrot cake Hershey's Kisses, and the birthday cards! I just managed to get the 407, just missed a Canada Line train, and just missed a 41 Joyce bus! Oh, the humanity! Vanessa and her work friend Elizabeth were still waiting for me, while Jason was parked down the road a bit. When Vanessa gave me the Bath and Body Works White Citrus foaming hand soap, Bath and Body Works Peach Bellini foaming hand soap, and Bath and Body Works Fresh Market Apple foaming hand soap, I gave her all the chocolate and stuff before I forgot. She said that she might be able to get me a ride to Richmond with her friends Wayne and Shelina, which was fine by me. I also met her friends Elizabeth, Chad (who's a smoker), and Jen. We talked about work, the hour-long lineup to get into Anton's, Wayne and Shelina (who are FWB) being extremely late (WE DON'T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT A VIAGRA / CIALIS MOMENT, JASON!), beer, picture frames, newspaper routes, Shelina's clingy ten-year-old son, my aspirin, Jason's back pain, Elizabeth being a registered Shiatsu massage therapist, gay Patrick, going downtown, my spicy Fusilli New Orleans pasta with shrimp / scallops / chicken / Italian sausage, Jen living near Boundary, Shelina somehow spelling "Hastings" with an M, Shelina being Native and being from Victoria (but her parents now live on a reserve near Agassiz), emulators, MAME and arcade games, directions, tiramisu cake, and Easter weekend plans. It was a good time out, but now I'm ready to relax!
