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.


Cambridge Corelle Splendor 12-piece set of cutlery!

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.

After COFFEE TIME, I had to get ready to leave by 11 for Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot at Lansdowne for a lunch with Mom and Dad. Fatty beef, lamb shoulder, Napa cabbage, white noodles, tofu, yams, vegetable and pork dumplings, deep-fried chicken wings, cod fillets, shrimp balls, beef balls, fish balls, tiger prawns, broth, an iced sour plum drink, and tea! Mom complained that they had seen bus stops around my place - yeah, but that doesn't mean they are in service right now! Dad "helped" with my phone's data and wifi settings. Yes, I know Harmony's family birthday is the 10th somewhere. I'll confirm things with Jon in a few days; no need to rush and be impatient about things! They dropped me off at London Drugs, so I walked home and got in at 12:45.

Random stuff from Mom and Dad: $10 cash, Maggi Masala Indian instant noodles x2 which have already expired as of February 3, Nosh and Co. Munch Madness cheddar and sour cream chips, GIM roasted seasoned seaweed x10, a Want Want gift pack (a box of strawberry Lovely Puffs / five small bags of orange QQ Gummies / a box of round chocolate sticks / a bag of milk candy), No Name chicken instant noodle packages x6, No Name chicken cup noodles, Paldo (팔도 (Paldo)) hot and spicy cup noodles, a package of Nissin chicken instant noodles x5, a packet of Wing's Foods hot chili sauce, President's Choice ginger-peach teabags x18, and organic Nighty Night Traditional Relaxation Teas teabags x4.

The Canucks played the Ducks at 7:30 tonight, and lost 1-0... Anaheim ended up winning their first home game in TWO MONTHS, with a rookie goalie and a new coach!

"Bob Bobberchuk" added me to Facebook - okay, then! I went to London Drugs again at 4 on a 407 (managing to just get the bus) to mail a note to Jimmy... only $1.26! Also bought on-sale Pacari organic chocolate bars x6: Raw 100% Cacao (orange), Passion Fruit (yellow), 60% Cacao Esmeraldas (pink), Andean Rose (red), Lemongrass (green), Raw 70% Cacao (yellow-green) - $3 each for a 50g bar!

Got home at 5:05 on a 407, and had lots of peace and quiet. I needed it to edit past entries, grab food photos from Google, and upload them! The Canucks played the Bruins at 7 tonight; the game went to overtime, and the Canucks won 2-1 against the nasty Bruins! BO HORVAT!

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...


Crown Royal Black whiskey!




Steamworks pumpkin ale! 6.5% ale! Pale Munich Caramalt malt, Magnum hops, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, Autumn Sunset color, 25 IBUs! Steam's alive! It's alive! Brewed with ghostly steam! Ghoulish steam has zero grave-ity! www.Steamworks.com

I left at 5:55 to get two 3-subject Hilroy notebooks in green and light blue (for home use and road use) from London Drugs, returning home at 6:40 on a late 407.

After COFFEE TIME, I left extra early (ugh) at 12:20 for my 1 PM rescheduled appointment with Rachel. I guess I have to take being half an hour early rather than ten minutes late, due to weird C94 scheduling. After that, I went to London Drugs and got Excel peppermint gum, and was very careful with my selection for a new wallet, eventually deciding on a $30 (and expensive!) "big" black Swiss Gear toiletry bag. At least it can fit 100 index cards, three maxipads, and a bunch of other stuff while still being wide enough for a bank envelope should I need one to compartmentalize some cash money! Speaking of cash money, I got two $5 bills in my change, which should be enough for the "extra" $10 for Andrew's final computer payment for next payday! I got home at 3:05 on a 407, and was mildly annoyed when I saw that Mom had tried calling me. I SAID I COULDN'T MAKE IT TO LUNCH! Jesus Christ!

glowing_dragon: (OMFG Yay!)
I did call Chrystal at work yesterday when I got home. We made plans for Friday the 13th, which doesn't bother me. Broadway London Drugs, it is!

Andrew called me at 9, so I was ready for him to bring over my NEWER COMPUTER WITH WINDOWS 7! :D

He came by at 9:45 and spent 20 minutes going over the specifics of the Nvidia computer case / power supply / various components, saying that Teunis is moving to Saskatchewan at the end of the month, telling me about his mom's huge quantities of chili in a Dutch oven, and saying that he was looking forward to a shower after a 14-hour workday. I bet! Thank goodness Chrome synced! Yes, I paid him his $40, and can probably make a $50 payment next time to pay everything off.

Green and pink brown moose socks, generic white socks, a turquoise Dressbarn light jacket, a very flowery dress with shoulder pads, purple "XXL" pants, a dark red airy jacket, a silver hot water bottle, a dark purple Picadilly Fashions jacket, a blue and brown Van Heusen dress shirt, a black button-up light jacket, and a grey Intimate Details housecoat from Big G.

After COFFEE TIME, I left for FYI Doctors at 2:10 in the rain. The 407 bus had to load a wheelchair, which didn't help! As for my appointments and tests, it took TWO HOURS for the testing and looking at the glasses! Summary of eye exam: "Try to look elsewhere while we put this bright light RIGHT in front of your face!" Later, I went to London Drugs to buy letter and number stickers for me and Fraser / on-sale Jack Link's Peppered Beef Jerky for Jerky Day / on-sale Bucha kombucha tea (Blood Orange and Guava Mango) before going home at 5:05 on another 407. Also, Josephine Uy - who looks worse and more bent over than the last time I saw her - recognized me at London Drugs.

At 12:45, I went to the FYI Doctors place near London Drugs to see if I could be covered for an eye exam under disability. Good news: I AM PARTIALLY COVERED, so I booked an appointment for Friday afternoon at 2:20! Then I went to London Drugs for NEW Häagen-Dazs White Chocolate with Raspberry Truffle ice cream, 200 Mead index cards, replacement Scotch scissors, two Hilroy notebooks (red and blue), NEW Tic Tac Piña Colada Mixers coconut and pineapple mints, and some extra-large store brand Ziploc bags. After getting off the 407, I went to the pharmacy next door to pick up my outstanding box for my prescription from last week, then got home at 1:35.

Chinese Eric emailed me, white Eric, Jeremy, Jon, Christon, and Randal this morning about a Stanley Cup Final hangout somewhere - Washington Capitals and Las Vegas Golden Knights! I scanned the email (which had possible scheduling), but didn't see where the hangout was going to be, so of course I emailed everyone to ask where it was. Chinese Eric actually was on the ball with his email and replied to say that it was going to be at Jeremy's place. ("it has been brought to my attention," indeed) Well, I'm not giving up my Mike's Hard Root Beer for this one, so I'll just buy snacks later on in the week. Easy!

I emailed Eric a reminder about the new(er) computer and the subsequent electronics recycling, and he emailed me back with detailed instructions on how to take a screenshot with Snipping Tool (so convenient!) of the System Tools, so he could compare with what was currently available. I definitely appreciated that, and he emailed me back with a Best Buy link! I do have just enough cash for that around here.

Then Christon emailed a bunch of us with an impromptu Sunday (but Monday) Dinner Evite at Jeremy's for May 21 with Thai or Vietnamese food... it's been a while, so it's time to do our semi-annual catchup, as I said in my RSVP! Lots of people time on that long weekend, so I'd better have lots of solitude after that till the Wednesday!
