Paulo let me know yesterday that he could come over tonight for noodles and ginger ale, which totally worked for me! Definitely no alcohol after last Friday for him, especially not with the stated effects on his body and liver! Today, he said he could come over around 8 unless that was too late - nope! He ended up taking a long nap and came over around 8:30 instead, but that was fine. Before I forgot, I asked him to take care of the wonky stove element wire. Thank goodness that he was able and willing to help! (and also to do his own dishes) I had cued up some relaxing FINAL FANTASY video game music, and we talked about that franchise / EARTHBOUND / MOTHER 3, MEGA MAN, DRAGON QUEST / DRAGON WARRIOR / instrumental music while cooking and eating noodles.

We talked about that smoke-filled ride from Chilliwack to Richmond in 2008 (starting off the summer of hell), Tinder bios, NO revenge porn, private things, Nissin black garlic oil noodles, the Samyang curry chicken terrorist noodles which ALMOST defeated him ("I'M DYING!" - I didn't care if he posted a photo of the bowl to Discord!), cigar / cigarette smoking, vaping, not judging Brian for his addiction or choice, Discord, Holly, Darryl being at a Metric concert, a Portland trip for Darryl and some others tomorrow, not interrupting stuff, Guu, Jeremy, and weird posts on my Facebook newsfeed. He definitely thanked me for having me over, the noodles, Ben and Jerry's peanut butter cookie dough ice cream as a chaser, Canada Dry ginger ale, two Pepto Bismol pills just in case he had an upset stomach later, and Gatorade bottle to take home at 11:30. We should do this again = all he has to do is let me know! At least he's more appreciative than SOME people...


G'Mario Charleston?!

Before COFFEE TIME, I called Chrystal to see what time we should meet tonight; 7:30 sounds good to me! I went out early at 5:30 to see if I could get that dragon hoodie at H and M after figuring out all the sidewalk and bus stop closures. They were all in a Medium size, but I figured that I'd make it work somehow. I didn't even care that I couldn't exchange it or get a refund since it was on clearance! $15 off - from $39.99 to $24.99! Then I went to the nearby London Drugs, then to the Broadway / Cambie London Drugs. Figured I'd spend my $75 tax refund while I was out and could do stuff, and I did! Now I have to wait for the April credit to go through, ha ha ha...

As I was reading an ARCHIE book, Chrystal came up to me - she was on time today! I told her that I had a birthday card for her, and not to worry about the rest of the stuff in my bulky reusable bag - that was all for me! We went to Pho Extreme Xe Lua to catch up: her parents going to Dubai pretty soon, Ethan and Mike being sick with the flu, my new Reddit friends, the whole Woob and Twitter screenshots saga, Benjamin being about the same age as Beckett, Beckett screaming as loud as the 80s music inside Como Taperia, and her knowing that I liked spicy stuff. After dinner, I went home instead of joining Brian, Paulo, and others at the American. I did stop by Shoppers Drug Mart when I got to Brighouse so I could get the aforementioned chips and dip. Got home at 9:10 on a 401, no thanks to MORE complicated sidewalk closures! They did make a temporary crosswalk near the intersection at my place, though.


From Sara and BrazilFlair on Tumblr: Here’s my first attempt at synonym rolls. Just like Grammar used to make!




Lots of dips! Lots of chocolates! FOOD TIME! )

It's World Book Day today!


From my ARE YOU SHITTING ME book: Boston Bramlage?! The rest of the family had more normal names: Ronald, Rebecca, Brandon, Beau, and Roxanne...




From Reddit and r/namenerds: A London lawyer is named Friday February Eleven Biddle?!

The Canucks played the Sabres at 7 tonight, and won 4-3 in a seesaw game! Thatcher Demko is the first Canucks goalie in history to start off 2-0!


From Julie: Stephanie and Josh are fine, but Keaira?!




From Julie: Samyah is pronounced like Sah-My-Ah?! Nope, we both think of "Sam-Yeah"!

When I got to Deb and Dylan's last night, I got settled in as Declan told me a lot of stuff about MOTHER GOOSE PRESCHOOL MINECRAFT / Eep the Mouse / spawns and mobs and Creepers. Elysse was watching FROZEN downstairs, so she told me about Anna and Elsa and Olaf. Typical kid talk, but I don't mind knowing about their stuff and interests! They were able to stay up till 10 PM just entertaining themselves for the most part, so that was good for them. Elysse described Hiero as her best friend, which is cute. Declan also knows Ayler, of course. At least the kids seemed to like me, so YAY!

Today started out with HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, iPads, a poppyseed bagel for breakfast, then after a while, Dylan kindly agreed to take me by my place while he and Elysse were out anyway so I could get some more pants. We also went to a random house to get an AirSoft table for Hiero's birthday party next week. Elysse was pretty patient, all things considered. I opted for the Walmart elevators every time, even if I had to meet Dylan and Elysse upstairs since the kid wanted the escalators. She and I looked at a lot of toys, even if she wanted to pull me to the escalators after she was done people-watching. Too bad that I'm still stronger than a little girl on the eve of her fifth birthday! I didn't pull her arm, though. We discussed how it was fine and okay to make mistakes, a bunch of toys, HATCHIMAL toys, and dolls.

We got home in time for more MINECRAFT, but it was naptime for me! I got up in time for Dylan's parents to show up and then leave a little later for the family dinner they had tonight. Deb kindly made me soup with veggies and noodles, plus some other noodle leftovers and gyoza... Dylan cut up some meat for me as well before they left. I had peace and quiet to do some naughty things before they got back at 9:30. (I also watched some YOU and EAT A CUP OF TEA on Netflix) Dylan's parents are staying overnight from Langley, which is good. Lots of styrofoam from Elysse's new ballerina doll, that's for sure!


Lucas, Kumatora, Duster, and Boney have come across a jar that is too hard to ignore underground in Chapter 7 of MOTHER 3. They choose not to read the letter inside. "The jar looks sad." Awww, the jar is from the Mr. Saturns in Saturn Valley! :(




Lucas, Kumatora, Duster, and Boney make it to the Highway rest area in Chapter 7 of MOTHER 3. "This seems like a fast car."

Barry picked me up at 11:30 for my follow-up appointment at the eye clinic today. Everything looks good according to Dr. Wise, who gave me two more bottles of eyedrops, which I got the pharmacy next door to open! I also have a one-week followup appointment on the 17th at 1:30 PM, which is definitely a convenient time for me to bus. No more eye shield except for at night or when I sleep! Then Rachel called me at 5 today for about ten minutes; she says I sound good and I managed very well. I HOPE SO, hahaha! I will get to Dylan and Deb's place safely tonight after the kids' Mandarin class and dinner - phew!


Post-surgery selfie from last night... I swear I forgot what I did when I emailed the Cuya NESS perler to myself on New Year's Eve or transferring files from the phone to the computer, so thank goodness for the eye clinic's Wi-Fi, haha!




Lucas, Kumatora, Duster, and Boney are no longer hallucinating on Tanetane Island in Chapter 7 of MOTHER 3. They see this sign with a skull on it. "Secrets ahead. No trespassing."




Lucas, Kumatora, Duster, and Boney go to the MOTHER 3 Highway in Chapter 7 of MOTHER 3. They stop by the rest area. A cow is in the female restroom! "Moo. (Someone's in heeere!)"

From Julie: Poop brown bag combo!




Julie saw this while out shopping at Walmart: Don't Step In It! (NO POOP!)

Sean Slaney from Ferris and Palmer found me on Facebook - probably from Lisa B. - and added me. We also briefly chatted on FB messenger, which is nice. No, I never went to Burnett for regular school, but probably for Chinese School 30 years ago! John Powell asked if I wanted to meet him and Eve after the game - I think I might be able to deal with snow showers, so I guess that would be fine! HOT CHOCOLATE AND COFFEE! Time to stash a scarf and mittens in my bag for the next four or five months!


The FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party is in Kefka's Tower, where they have to split up to conquer the dungeon together. They need to step on the circled green button to open up the path for other people, as shown. Bonus: They get a Ribbon from that treasure chest!




Have faith in thyself, for thou art a badass motherfucker.

"You Are the Judicial Branch"




You have a well-developed sense of right and wrong, but you are always open to changing your mind about the details.
You have a very rational mind. You never judge until you learn all of the facts and context for something.

You are good at seeing issues in full. You can hold a lot of details in your head at once, and you're able to organize chaos.
You aren't an overly emotional person, and you can see when people are arguing from emotion. You can step back and assess without passion.







From Ben and Tumblr: Mail and email ten years ago in 2001 vs. mail and email now in 2011, when this was created.




From Reddit: Grim Vermeiren is from Flanders or Belgium?!
