From Grammarly: How To Write Good, by Frank L. Visco!

Caveat emptor. Carpe diem. O si villi, si ergo, fortibus is in ero. Et tu, brute.

My several years in the word game have learnt me several rules:

1. Avoid alliteration. Always.
2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
3. Avoid clichés like the plague. (They're old hat.)
4. Employ the vernacular.
5. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
6. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
7. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
8. Contractions aren't necessary.
9. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
10. One should never generalize.
11. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."
12. Comparisons are as bad as clichés.
13. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.
14. Profanity sucks.
15. Be more or less specific.
16. Understatement is always best.
17. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
18. One-word sentences? Eliminate.
19. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
20. The passive voice is to be avoided.
21. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
22. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
23. Who needs rhetorical questions?

Brian picked me up at about 9 last night from the hospital's main entrance, but I had to take a gigantic huge detour because the construction had blocked off the sidewalks right by my place AGAIN! (going through the parking lot and then find the sidewalk by the pharmacy and then cross THREE crosswalks to get to the hospital) He had joked that it would be like Little Iraq trying to get to my place, and this was about right. The chill get-together was for Paulo's 27th birthday, so of course I was going to come out and meet him. Things were fine until we tried finding Fremlin, but I eventually called Holly (who doesn't have a buzzer system or an elevator in her apartment building?!) when Brian eventually found it. She said that she was going to throw her keys down to us, probably because she was tired of going up and down the stairs for everyone else!

When Brian finally figured out the front door lock (the one in my building is recalcitrant as well), we went upstairs to Holly's suite. We met Paulo, and said hi to Holly and Darryl. Talked about bartending, gin and tonic, red wine, beers, smoking (always someone's choice), travel (Jordan and Egypt and Australia), the leftover pizza with pepperoni and sausage, online people in the other Discord server, Gastown, awful dates, hyphenated names, feminism, the 407, friends being in abusive relationships, weird names like Jesus Condom, the closed sidewalks around my place, (looking for) work, Long Island Iced Teas, (video) interviews, San Francisco, Montreal, fudge Oreos, and my Korean BBQ Kettle chips. Of course I let Holly keep them! Turns out that Paulo lives two minutes from me, which is always good just in case. I let Brian drop me off at Birchwood instead of Dogwood, but I was still with it enough to figure out where I was since things looked different. Got in at midnight, which is fine. Good times with FREEDOM!

IT'S APPRECIATE A DRAGON DAY! I showered and did laundry today after unpacking. Deb emailed me before the game to ask how it was being home, and say that both the kids were asking about me - cute!

Lucas, Kumatora, Duster, and Boney are reunited in Chapter 5 of MOTHER 3. On their way to defeat Lord Passion at Osohe Castle, they drop in on Wess at the nursing home Old Man's Paradise so he can see his son for the first time in three years. "Duster? No, Lucky or whatever is fine. You have legs, right? I see you're the same... The same as ever."

After COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 11:10 so we could go to Dr. Wise's office again at noon. I got home at 1:45 with a prescription for eyedrops and gels (Lotemax Gel (0.5%), Prolensa [0.07% sodium!], Moxifloxacin HCL 0.5%) after a LOT of waiting since Dr. Wise was running "a bit" behind: at least I won't be nearsighted after the surgery! The other eye should match, but later on! (and I'll need new reading glasses then)

I got home to find certain Facebook messages from the usual suspect involving Tommy; okay then, do what you gotta do, but I have complied with the emotionless request which had bad grammar! THE POST WAS FROM JULY 30, AND IT IS NOW NOVEMBER 29! COME ON! I CAN ALSO VENT IF NEED BE! Now I have thrown away the old GIBSON owl coffee mug, Irish Spring bar soap, Softsoap pomegranate and mango liquid soap, yellow LifeCandy shower pouf, Dial Coconut Milk body wash, and the Finesse Extra Body shampoo and conditioner.

I've replaced them with another yellow LifeCandy shower pouf and GIBSON owl coffee mug, the orange Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser rehydration shampoo and conditioner with Marula Oil, Softsoap Vanilla Brown Sugar liquid soap, and the Dial For Men Maximum Moisture body wash. I also had to replace Scotties Lotion Kleenex boxes, my GUM toothbrush, Arm and Hammer toothpaste, GOODY toothbrush cover, and a toilet paper roll anyway. The Canucks played the Knights at 7 tonight, and lost 4-3. Blah!

I left at 6:10 on a 401 (just managing to get the bus) to meet Frances C. at Pho Lan at 6:30 for a belated birthday treat; I got off at Brighouse and took a 406 so I wouldn't have to walk for a couple of long blocks. However, the scooter guy definitely posed a problem for me, so I had to get off at the other end of Richmond Centre and walk in the rain to the restaurant. We talked about her baptism, Sophie, the Vancouver library's Inspiration Pass, her brothers and their autism, Ellen's daughter, my nephews (she's seen Ayler and Hiero around church), my meal (#8 - rare steak, flank, tendon, and tripe), and her being distantly related to Billy and Stella because Eunice and Eddie are married.

She and I also discussed Eunice being her cousin (but she doesn't talk to her / Pauline / Winnie much), Ellen, her offering me a ride home (of course I took the ride!), Sophia and her daughters, her mom's dementia, Frances Marr, her seeing David Marr around church, my area of Richmond being really convenient, and her nursing career. Thanks to her giving me a ride home, I was home at 7:45 instead of even later!

I'd just missed the bus, so I walked there instead - it was easier than waiting 20 minutes, I guess. The clerk was surprised that they'd just started charging now since everyone else had been doing it years before, AND London Drugs is about being green. Oh well, good thing I carry around reusable bags with me anyway, most of the time. Plus, Jimmy actually started a FB conversation yesterday, which was also a surprise, but at least it was good to actually catch up with him now that I'm not (as?) mad at him anymore!
