There was an unexpected water shutoff today! Of course Amacon posted a notice at the front door to let people know... come on! Not everyone leaves their apartment once a day! UGH! I briefly called Chrystal at work at 4 to wish her a happy belated birthday since she'd been off last week. She thanked me and said she appreciated it. The water was FINALLY back on at 5:45, NOT 1 PM as stated in the notice! Geez.

COFFEE TIME! Christon emailed us to propose a hockey hangout next Saturday (the 9th) at Jeremy's because Chinese Eric wants to have one. I SEE HOW IT IS! He can sacrifice a night from wedding planning for HIM, but not for my birthday?! HA! I'll have to walk to Brighouse station AGAIN for the second time in four days in a row! UGH!

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.

Barry picked me up at 1 and we went banking and to Price Smart. I got bananas, Earth's Own oat milk to try with my oatmeal, NEW limited-edition on-sale Olympic Dairy apple cinnamon yogurt, on-sale Olympic Dairy French Vanilla yogurt, lots of GOOD TASTE and JOY dumplings x5, Frank's Red Hot Sauce (Extra Hot cayenne pepper sauce), on-sale Colgate Total Advanced Health Whitening toothpaste, on-sale Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair lotion with a blue pump (not bad to open - but also sticky?!), NEW Western Family prune nectar (way easier to open than the Welch's bottles!), Vedan spicy mushroom cuttlefish noodles, Gatorade blueberry-pomegranate bottles x6, on-sale canned pink salmon, Stouffer's Sauté Sensations microwaveable meals for the night before the May 8 eye surgery (Homestyle Roast Chicken / Country Beef Pot Roast), spicy Takis Fuego snacks, and on-sale Western Family mushrooms x2.

I went out at 2:05 on a 414 to meet Rachel at the Caring Place, getting home at 3:50 on a 407. Dr. Wise's office (Megan) called me at 4:15 to try scheduling a last-minute appointment for tomorrow at noon to REPEAT an eye test that I thought the Willow UBC Eye Care Clinic already did back on November 15! Dr. Wise then said that she wanted to make sure I got the best lens possible, and she needed the info before going into the OR, so couldn't do it while I was asleep during the operation. Okay, I guess... Megan did say it was a hassle, which is right, because I said it was an inconvenience, then felt bad about it. I'd been planning to relax, but whatever! I have to be positive and believe that people will help me if I'm lost - which is bound to happen downtown!


From Erik and Sticks And Hat Tricks: Two parents watching youth hockey! "Which one is your boy?" "Why?" "I wanted to tell him how terrible he is." "You can't say that - he's only a kid.

I went out at 9:30 on a 401 to meet Mom and Dad at Main and 15th at TXL Insurance, Uncle William Ng's company. (10:30 AM?!) After we had lunch at Kwong Chow and finally took care of the insurance, I did some shopping at the Broadway London Drugs. Bought 400 Mead index cards, store brand all-purpose cleaner, a three-inch Avery binder for my important documents (a definite upgrade!), a red $2 MARTEX washcloth, a GUM toothbrush, and two dark blue $2 GOODY toothbrush covers. Got home at 1:40 to a Purolator notice (ugh), a phone call from Dr. Wise's office, and some other mail, so I had to deal with all of that.

I got a BUDDY THE ELF Christmas card / Tazo Tea x3 (passion herbal tea, vanilla caramel chai, and green ginger tea) / magnetic Fool Moon treasures crow bookmark from Angie H. (auralily) and a Ringo the dog Christmas card from Kitty (bornwitch / dutch_kitty) in the mail. Then after calling Dr. Wise's office back, I GOT MY SURGERY TIME! 11:45 at Mount St. Joseph's isn't TERRIBLE! After letting Barry know about the surgery date and then fielding an inconvenient phone call from Mom (I was going to go out before it got dark!), I trekked near YVR on Jericho Road to get to the Purolator via YVR Airport Canada Line, placing myself nearer the airport than I'd intended today, as I told Corey when I got back.

After COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 8:30 AM so we could go to the UBC Eye Care Centre on Willow at 9:15 AM for an eye measurement scan because of my dense cataract. RED LIGHTS IN FRONT OF MY EYES! SMELLING SKIN! The technician asked where my parents were and why they weren't with me... I CAN TAKE CARE OF THINGS MYSELF, AND MY RIDE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!

Barry and I talked about the rush-hour traffic, the Royal Bank kiosk machine that I noticed yesterday inside Shoppers, changing the payday shopping appointment plans to THURSDAY instead of Wednesday at 9:30 AM (gets me out of going to Dinesty with the parents!), his ongoing Wednesday appointments at 11, the RDSP stuff, and music. I got home at 10:10, and he helped me move the bedframe support back inside from where the cleaners left it outside where I'd bump into it. OUCH! I still can't close my bedroom door fully, though.

While I remembered, I emailed Eric about the construction zone and consequent road closures as a reminder for Sunday's ride to Jeremy's. He replied to say that he has a cold, so might not be okay for Sunday - UGH! The Canucks played the Wild at 5 today, and lost 6-2!

I went to the pharmacy next door at 1:30 to refill my prescription, showered, and did laundry today. Then I went to H and M to see if I could get sweatpants. No luck at all, even when I dragged an associate across the store! At least now I have the phone number and (mow that I'm home) the proper tag numbers for my preferred style of sweatpants! 604-279-1811 AND 063 658 68! When I got home and organized stuff, I called the store - they don't have that one because it's popular / best-selling, but will have a shipment in very soon, and said I should call in the late afternoon or early evening. Okay, then!

I got on-sale Arm and Hammer 50-load laundry detergent and store brand garbage bags at Shoppers, and on-sale bulk pads x2 (saving $1 per package) at London Drugs (just missing the 407) before hauling the heavy stuff home at 2:50 on a 401, having to get off one stop earlier because of the road closures and construction! Gotta remind white Eric about that soon... I also found a random Bench / Body men's underwear in her dried laundry. o_O

Jeremy emailed me to say that he could make it to Felico's - YAY! Barry called me at 8:35 AM to confirm the time that he'd be picking me up, and 10:15 sounded fine to me. Then Dr. Wise's office called me at 9:05 AM to say that they had "a situation" come up and they'd have to reschedule either today or Monday at the latest. Ugh, fine - make me drink coffee for no reason! :P

The office called me again at 9:45 AM (that was fast!) to reschedule, so I brought up my ride situation, but October 19 at 11 AM should tentatively work. I then called Barry to see if it would since he's going to Japan; since he didn't have his appointment book with him at that moment, he called me back at 10:05 to say that yes, it would. Then I called the doctor's office back to confirm things. Phew, now I can hopefully relax and take Neo-Citran when I feel less awake from the coffee!


Edit at 12: I told Jimmy about finding out that "the situation" was a carjacking downtown, and he tried making me laugh by saying "Car-jacking off." NOT FUNNY IN THIS CONTEXT, BABE! Totally inappropriate, like his Goodwill thrift store "gaylord" slang for a full forklift of donations!

After COFFEE TIME, Vanessa and baby Cassidy (with her cool pink sunglasses) picked me up for my BIRTHDAY LUNCH at Pho 37 in Ironwood and Steveston. She apologized for yesterday, but it was still fine by me. We talked about her friends, Tamara, chocolate, sugar, weird people, our parents and siblings(-in-law), "adventurous" pork blood / pork hock / Vietnamese ham / beef / basil / bean sprouts in spicy soup, spring rolls, shrimp salad rolls, padding, buying various things at London Drugs (I opted for on-sale Cool Blue Gatorade x6 - but couldn't find the expiry date of March 16, 2019 on the bottle till just now), blenders, She dropped me off early for my appointment with Rachel at The Caring Place. Rachel actually saw me early, which was surprising, but I also got to be home at 3:25 on a 407, so things worked out that way. I think other things (with Jimmy) are pretty final, but I could be wrong. Still, I want the control...

I had to get up at 8 AM and have COFFEE TIME in preparation for my eye exam at 10 AM, but the directions given to me by FYI Doctors were pretty vague. As long as I was up that early, I called Andrew to get a status update, the summary of which was that he could get my machine back to me by either late tonight or early tomorrow, depending on how Microsoft treated him on the phone. At least the machine accepted my Windows 7 key!

Then I found Dr. Kirker's office IN the Vancity bank building: the directions given by FYI Doctors were very vague. After another eye exam, I was referred to Dr. Weiss for cataract surgery - YIKES! Since I needed a treat, I paid $20.65 cash for 1000 Mead index cards and Big Turk mini Turkish Delights in a bag at London Drugs. While I was there, I mailed off birthday cards and more stickers for Fraser to Lisa and Henry. After I get home from Brighouse Library, I will definitely have enough time to call Chrystal to make dinner plans for next week or so. My eyes are finally getting back to normal now, too!

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME, I left at 2:55 for my dentist appointment with Sean at 3:30. Turns out the extra half hour was to update my X-rays and digital paperless records! I overheard an older guy actually argue with Sean in the waiting room about how he didn't have time to floss or brush his teeth: he wanted to weasel his way out of more frequent appointments, and didn't want to listen to BC dental rules and guidelines. I got on the Canada Line after checking my Royal Bank card balance at Oakridge Mall, but the guy in a wheelchair posed a problem for me when he wouldn't get out at Lansdowne Station, so I walked from there to London Drugs. (the guy with the bike was bad enough at Brighouse AND Oakridge Station on my way to the appointment...)

I checked out London Drugs again since both Sean and the hygienist mentioned Vaseline for my dry lips. Luckily, it was on sale, as were the replacement thin Secret bamboo socks which I was going to buy after payday. (I noticed a hole in a pair yesterday) The sales would not extend until payday, so I bought a 50g tube of Vaseline original petroleum jelly / 600mL of Vaseline intensive care lotion in a yellow bottle (which contains micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly) / a pair of replacement thin Secret bamboo socks. When I got home at 5:45 on a 407, I prepared blog entries and novel reading for COMPUTERLESS DOOM this weekend. INTO THE WILDERNESS (Sara Donati), FALL OF GIANTS (Ken Follett), HAWAII (James Michener), and LONDON (Edward Rutherfurd) are my choices!

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.
