After I had COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 10:50 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got NEW on-sale Samyang curry terrorist noodles, Cottonelle toilet paper x2, on-sale Sidekicks x6 (Creamy Bacon Carbonara / Garlic Butter with Lemon / Creamy Chicken Fusilli / Three-Cheese / Homestyle Cheddar / Tomato Alfredo), Ferrero Rocher hazelnut Easter eggs and NEW Easter Egg Oreos for Eric Ho and me, NEW Dark Chocolate Oreo cookies, Crayola Original washable markers x2 (yay for felts!), on-sale Good Taste dumplings x5 (Cabbage and Pork / Pork and Celery / Cabbage and Chicken / Beef and Vegetable / Pork and Chive), and NEW Dawn Lavender Wisp dish detergent.

Later, I paid my Shaw bill online at home. The Canucks played the Senators at 7 tonight, and won 7-4 after practically blowing a 5-0 lead in the third.


Mr. Saturn is a blobfish in real life!




Yogurt, Oreo cookies, Nair, Always, and dish soap! )

I discovered that Jason Lam and Sarah Quelch had unfriended me - oh well, the Awana and Palmer days were long ago! The Canucks played the Kings at 7:30 tonight... the game went to overtime (thanks to Gaudette!) plus a shootout. BOESER GOT THE GOAL TO WIN 4-3! I also showered today.


From Kenny and Busted Locals: A young woman was pulled over for speeding. A Louisiana State Trooper walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book. She said, "I bet you are going to try to sell me a ticket to the Louisiana Trooper's Ball." He replied, "Louisiana State Troopers don't have balls." There was a moment of silence. He then closed his book, tipped his hat, got back in his patrol car, and left.

The EcoClean cleaners came today at 10 AM, as advertised, and I had to give them the parking pass and pick it up later when they left at 11:35. They spoke in Spanish most of the time (but did know English) and cleaned a whole lot of things and vacuumed, including my microwave AND sink! The three ladies even dusted my book and CD displays! Of course I gave them a $10 cash tip - NOT $5 as Mom was saying, since that seemed slightly low... even $10 seemed low for three people, but I'll know for next time if there is one! Yes, Hester's husband Ni saw them on the way in as he was trying to fix the recalcitrant front door lock, but I didn't care about that.


From Julie: They say POOPING is a call of nature. Does that mean FARTING is a missed call?

glowing_dragon: (Happy Birthday!)
IT IS MY BIRTHDAY. BOW DOWN TO THE FIRE DRAGON!


Since Auntie Catherine wanted to change our lunch at Pepper Lunch (which I have always wanted to try - Japanese Teppanyaki cuisine!) from Saturday the 15th to today at 11 because she has a doctor appointment in Richmond anyhow, I was semi-amenable to that prospect. I left at 10:45, but had to wait a while because she was at least 15 minutes late. I thought she'd be coming from Brighouse Station, but nope - she had driven instead! The manager seemed very friendly and personable, and helped me cook my raw rare Angus beef steak, green beans, bean sprouts, and carrots in the sizzling iron pan (which came with rice): I even got free miso soup and a free mango mochi for dessert since it was my birthday! Auntie Catherine and I talked about Frances and her baptism (ha ha ha), Auntie Emily / Ellen / Andrew / Brian, prayer for the meal (I guess...), hugs hello AND goodbye, Steph, and the Translink website being largely good for trip planning. (North Van to No. 2 and Francis? Sure, why not...)

I left at 4:20 for Oakridge Station (just managing to catch the 407) to meet Mom and Dad, who were really late. We went to Nando's on West 41st, and talked about garlic bread / spiciness level for the chicken / roasted peppers / Ayler wanting to puncture the napkins with his fork / Ayler almost stabbing me with his fork / cleaning / tips / Patsy Hui (Aaron and Denise Hui's mom) being related to Uncle Stanley and Auntie Vonnie / all the buses going by / real estate. I finally got home at 7:35 on a 407. PHEW!


Mom, to Jon: "How much money did you raise last night?" Jon and I heard, "How much money did you WASTE last night?" Mom also called a wristwatch a WRISTBAND, but it's kinda similar-ish...


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: A Colgate toothbrush, 95 mL of Colgate Cavity Protection toothpaste which expires in April 2020, a Joe Fresh wristwatch already set to the correct time, a broken Cadbury Fruit and Nut dark chocolate bar (not that it matters), nine Halloween puffy skull stickers, a religious Gratitude Journal with a tree on the cover, and a Michaels ruled journal with an L on it.

A Michaels spiral notebook with speech bubbles on it plus a bonus pen, a set of Paper Mate Ink Joy Candy Pop! ballpoint pens (orange / red / black / purple / green / light blue / pink / dark blue), and a birthday card ("YOU ARE... the [green] apple of my eye") with $20 in a red lucky envelope... all in a Vitamin World plastic bag protected by a Sunmore Ginseng paper bag with handles!

Vanessa and Jason's birth announcement for their daughter Cassidy arrived in the mail - WOO! I went to Brighouse Library to find out that I was STILL blocked from Facebook status tagging after three days! Then I killed time at London Drugs and bought on-sale mini York Peppermint Patties for $4, and someone in line said she thought she went to high school with me: BECKY ALPIN! She still lives nearby, around the Price Smart, and was with her sons Kieran and Owen. No, I don't have the memory to retain everyone's student numbers these days! I showered when I got home at 4:20 on a 407, which I only had to wait two minutes for in the heat - PHEW!


From Julie and CRIME WATCH DAILY: Bronze Beckley is Crystal's best friend?! I know that Golden and Sylver's mom is also named Moni (Money), but WOW!




From Julie: HAITH?! H A I T H?!




Mini York Peppermint Patties!




But I WAS searching for "York Peppermint," London Drugs website... FAIL!

As I was going to type a Facebook status this morning, my computer monitor blinked out! I called Eric after a few minutes, and he answered his phone, which I guess isn't that surprising as it was 8:40 AM. I briefly described the situation, and he said that he might be able to stop by tomorrow night. That was fine by me. I then found out that my laptop wouldn't connect to the Internet, and it also thought that it was New Year's Day 2005 - NO! After a while, I walked to Brighouse to get a computer so I could update Discord and CANUCK NATION.

Vanessa got her card already, which shouldn't surprise me even if I did mail it on Sunday. The Canucks played Colorado at 7 tonight; the game had to go to overtime, and Vancouver won 4-3! Yuri is also back on Discord, so YAY FOR THAT!

I left for baby Henry's 100 Day-ish celebration at Western Lake Restaurant at 4 today. I thought that was early, but considering that I had to wait a bit for the 33 bus to 29th Avenue across the street from King Edward Station, that was okay. Thank goodness that Victoria is a major street! When I got to the restaurant, most people were there already, but whatever. I got to sit at a table with Fraser, Lisa, Harmony, Ayler, Hiero, and Steph's trainer plus her family. Of course I said hi to Melia (I didn't know she worked in the Minoru area!), Angus, Dawn, Eni, Michelle, Daniel, Denise, Margaret, Eunice (who hugged me hello), Chelsea (who hugged me goodbye), her husband Nick, Auntie Christine, Uncle Reuben, Uncle Y.C., Auntie Catherine, Auntie May, Auntie Eva, Auntie Gloria, and Uncle Richard! I managed to put my oversized Santa hat on Henry before eating, haha.

We had a ten-course Chinese meal... SO FULL on fish, veggies (pea tips / carrots / broccoli), shrimp, lettuce wraps, duck meat soup (or whatever replaced shark fin soup), crispy duck, chicken, crab, rice, and tapioca dessert! Fraser was distracted by my bling-bling sweater, for which Lisa blessed me. He named all the colors correctly! Hiero said "no" to the question of whether I was a girl, so I guess I'm a boy by default. Could be worse! Harmony offered to drop me off at a Canada Line station later, so I accepted. She also told me to watch Ayler while she took Hiero to the washroom, but he was all preoccupied with counting the squares on a pillar anyway, so I didn't really need to. Of course I said bye to Steph, Lisa, Fraser, and Henry before leaving! Ayler said that SOMETHING was hurting after being buckled into his carseat... good to know, haha. Thanks to Harmony dropping me off half a block from Oakridge Mall with my leftovers, I got home at 8:05 on a 407 which I only had to wait a few minutes for at Brighouse. The Canucks played St. Louis at 7 tonight. I got home when it was the second period, and the game went to overtime, where Vancouver lost 4-3.

After COFFEE TIME, I left at 4:40 so I could meet baby Henry for the first time at Wo's Restaurant at 5:30. I had the Advent calendars for Steph and Lisa, plus the Festive Friends cookies for Fraser. As I thought, I was late, but I'd planned it that way. I said hi to everyone, and noticed Fraser's shirt: "My aunt is cooler than yours!" Baby Henry wanted to focus on the hockey game on TV, but held my finger and stuck out his tongue while making baby noises at me. While having pork, chicken, chicken corn soup, broccoli, carrots, other vegetables, tea, rice, yee mein, and more, Fraser let me check out his toy airplane and told me about the bus trip to the airport this morning and the plane ride later. He'd also danced at Grandma Sandy's birthday party last weekend, which sounds like fun! Everyone else talked about winter clothing, Jon having gout (?!), Mr. Weatherbee in the ARCHIE comics, Ayler and Hiero learning to swear from school, Christon / Eric M. / Eddie / Eunice / Auntie Catherine / Auntie Christine / Uncle Reuben / Uncle Percy being 100 / Uncle Eric / Auntie Eva / Auntie Evie / Auntie Eileen, plans for next week, Victoria, Melia, Melissa, milk, Shoppers Drug Mart (Fraser likes shopping!), and more. Fraser even gave me a hug and kiss when we were leaving! Mom and Dad dropped me off at 7:10, which is fine by me.


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: a Dignity funeral home mint, a stray Q-tip (?!), Necco Wafers, Nosh and Co.

Barry picked me up at 11:50 after COFFEE TIME, and we went banking before going to Price Smart. My Royal Bank debit card's chip could not be read, so I had to go into the branch to figure things out - good thing there was no lineup at all! Turns out I get a temporary debit card until I can get a new one in the mail. I bought on-sale Lindt gingerbread truffles for Lena, on-sale black cherry Strepsils cough drops, on-sale Tylenol cough and cold medicine, on-sale Total Cold Neo Citran, on-sale Lysol Bathroom Bleach toilet cleaner x2, on-sale store brand Mountain Rain laundry detergent, on-sale 2000 Flushes (stick it where the sun don't shine, apartment management!), on-sale Campbell's Soup x8 (trying to stock up slowly for winter on mushroom soup x2 / clam chowder / chicken noodle soup / Lemon Chicken Orzo / Spicy Vegetable Turkey / Fiesta Vegetable / Curried Cauliflower Lentil...), on-sale Dawn dish detergent (Fuji Cherry!), and grape Gatorade x6. Also bought on-sale store brand liquid honey (one kilogram!), on-sale store brand lemon juice (almost one litre!), Good Taste Dumplings x3 (Pork and Vegetable / Beef and Vegetable / Cabbage and Chicken), Kettle Brand chips x2 (Himalayan Salt and Chili Lime), Cream of Chicken Lipton soup, on-sale OXO beef bouillon, bottled water, on-sale Always Mi Goreng noodles x3 (Thai Tom Yam / Kari Curry / Sambal Udang), and more Scotties Kleenex x6.

I showered and did laundry today. The repairman came by at 1:40 to install a new stove fan switch, and confirmed that the stove pans were too icky to be cleaned normally. I guess I will have to replace them! I saw Hester by the elevator and after being invited into the outdoor storage room (which is indeed full of junk, including London Drugs shopping carts), she gave me one which is too small, then eventually took back a newer bigger one because my stove pan wasn't broken. The newer one was shinier on the inside AND outside, but she said it was rusty and kind of bent. She thanked me for understanding, and gave me a tip when I asked: that she'd bought them at the Richmond Public Market at a haircut shop (?!) on the second floor. Okay then, I guess I'm going there at some point since I don't exactly trust Easy-Off with that stove pan! (but I might buy it just in case) Not going today, though - that was way too much cheery social interaction for me as an introvert!
