Everyone is well here... kids are all busy with part-time jobs now that school / university has finished for the year. I have one more week of work, then have time off until January 2. Yay!

After COFFEE TIME, Eric M. picked me up at 5 so we could go to Golden Spring Restaurant (near the old VCEFC church site) for Beckett's baby banquet. Unfortunately, I forgot his birthday Lindt Excellence dark chocolate bars (Madagascar / Pink Peppercorn) and birthday card on the way out the door, despite leaving a note for myself. I guess I'll have to give it to him at the Felico's dinner like he wanted. UGH! At least he can give me a ride to that one! We talked about his first hockey practice today, his first game on Wednesday, there being a good reason why Steph / Lisa / Fraser / Henry weren't here this weekend, Highway 99, Steveston, and more.

We had seafood soup, sweet and sour pork, chicken, fish, yee mein, red bean soup, jellyfish, Chinese cold cuts, seafood soup, tea, and more for dinner - I got to take leftovers home, too! Dad thought he had to remind me to say hi to Mom, Uncle Richard, Auntie Gloria, Pastor Fulton, Auntie Teresa, Auntie May, Uncle Anthony, Uncle Andre and his wife Anna, Uncle Joe, Auntie Wing Yee, Auntie Vivian (who said that she missed me and wondered where I'd been "hiding"), Uncle Eric, Auntie Brenda, and their other friends. No, I just wanted to get settled first! I did say hi to Holly, Peter, Evander, and Everett when they got there, of course.

When Auntie Catherine got there, we caught up a little later - she remembered my birthday in September as "a special time," and wanted us to get together. She said that Frances is getting baptized next week - ha ha ha, good luck with that! (from what Ellen tells me...) I'm probably not going to go for THAT service, but did personally tell Jon that I would be willing to go to Beckett's baby baptism service if VCEFC ever got around to organizing one. Auntie Catherine also would be willing to meet me in RICHMOND (!) on Saturday the 15th, and maybe invite a friend my age. Okay, then! As long as it's not about religion AGAIN...

I taught Ayler about Talk Like A Pirate Day since he was wearing a pirate T-shirt. He asked what people did for that, and how he could celebrate; he eventually figured that he could wear his shirt and say "Arr, matey!" like I suggested. Good ideas! He did ask about my skin scars, but I told him that it was my choice to make boundaries about my body, just like him. Later, he refused to ask my reasonable question about how Grade 1 was so far; then he didn't want me to see the time on Eric's watch, so he covered it up. Okay, then. I did say hi to Hiero, but Harmony was wearing Beckett all evening, probably to prevent people from taking photos.

Nathan, Jeremy, Randal, Caleb, Rebecca, Jon, Harmony, Eric, and I talked about Batman / Quentin Tarantino / Twitch streams / my new glasses and upcoming eye surgery / my Felico's celebration (Jeremy and Nathan say they'll confirm later) / Danielle travelling these days / FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL / learning to ride bikes from Ron and Veronica / CRAZY RICH ASIANS / JOY LUCK CLUB / Kendrick Lamar / some guy named Danny Miller / addiction issues / rappers / the weird Asian shows on the TV, which Harmony did NOT feel the need to ask the staff to turn off / counting the courses. We saw Alan and Tracy with their kid Noah, so waved at them on their way out of the restaurant. I wished Myles a happy early birthday while saying hi to him, Brittney, and Naomi. Then Eric had to wait a few more minutes while I said bye to everyone that I knew... oh well.

Eric dropped me off at 8:40, which is still pretty good. Time to relax now! Oh wait, Mom wants Jon to choose the location of my birthday dinner AGAIN - yeah, I'm not putting up with that this year. Let ME pick the damn restaurant, although at least the Oakridge area on a Monday afternoon is better than Commercial Drive with Sunday bus schedules! Not saying I'll never go to Commercial Drive, but NOT at the behest of another person ON MY ACTUAL BIRTHDAY! No, I'm not feeling guilty about that. She tried calling me twice, but I was NOT in the mood for yet more social interaction. That's the true introvert nature!


Random stuff from Mom and Dad: $20 cash (making up for yesterday's pizza plus a little more), an old one-litre Proctor-Silex water boiler (half the size of my current one), a pair of white socks, a pair of pink-and-white candy toe socks, and 200 sheets of Hilroy lined paper.


Chinese jellyfish with chili!

Cards Received, 2017!


Special 2017 (1)

* Julie M.: "Here is the bracelet that I finally was able to send! I hope you like it. Go Canucks!! :)"


Birthday 2017 (5)

* card from parents

* Steph, Lisa, Fraser, Henry, and Havarti: "Sarne! Happy 41st birthday from your loving sister, sister-in-law, and FAVORITE nephews! (Haha! We know it even if you don't say it!) Love from Hamilton. See you in November! Steph, Lisa, Fraser, Henry, and Havarti."

* card from Pathways

* Christon: "Happy Birthday, Leslie! I know this card makes fun of our age, but I have realized how long we have known each other, and despite all the different turns of events in our lives, we have been able to keep in touch through birthdays of friends and our own, so that has been pretty cool! Enjoy another year with good friends and food. I pray that this year be a good one for you! Cheers! Christon."

* Eric M.: "Happy 41st Birthday, Leslie. Hope you have a good year to come. The rides to and from church aren't as interesting without you on board ready to disembark at No. 4 Rd. and Alderbridge Way. Just don't let a fart out in a crowded elevator... or a US Navy Aircraft Carrier. Trump will consider it an act of war. Eric."


Christmas 2017 (12)

* Karla: "Merry Christmas, Leslie! I hope you have a great one, and that 2018 treats you and yours well. Love, Karla."

* Katherine K.: "Hi, Leslie! My holiday cards are a bit different this year. I'm turning an old damaged Tarot deck into one-of-a-kind personalized cards, complete with a tanka poem. Enclosed is also some of my favorite Swedish tea. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Wishing you a lovely holiday. TWO OF SWORDS: Impasse Unpleasant truth. Peace is being maintained for now. At what cost? What are you holding back? What do you need to admit?" (cactus_rs)

* Katherine K.: "Here's some of the most Swedish possible candy! Except black licorice, but UGH!" (cactus_rs)

* Deanna H.: "Dear Leslie: Wishing you the most wonderful Christmas and a peaceful new year. Love, Deanna." (endlessblush) (endlessblush)

* Mandy B.: "Leslie, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Happy Holidays!" (dazzamre)

* a Christmas photo card from Steph, Lisa, Fraser, Henry, and Havarti

* Sheryll: "Leslie, it's a blessing to know you're a friend! Have a Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year! Love, Sheryll." (sheryll)

* a Christmas photo card from Jon, Harmony, Ayler, and Hiero - DUCKFACE FOR SANTA?!

* Jaymee L.: "Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year! May your holidays be filled with love, laughter, inner peace, joy, and yummy food!" (kirei_xo_ai)

* Sam C.: "Wishing you a very happy Christmas and a healthy and safe New Year in 2018! Hope the stickers are okay. I went through my stash and tried to grab a little of everything that wasn't girly, haha." (acidquill)

* Bella B.: "Dear Leslie, Wishing you and your family all the best this holiday season and in 2018. It turned out that most stickers I have on hand are girly, so I hope you and your nephews like the enclosed neutral ones. Regards, Bella." (med_cat) [colorful smiley faces, snowflake / polar bear / luge / snowboarding cat]

* Christy C.: "Hi, Leslie - wishing you the best of everything this holiday season!" (snoopdawg)

* Kitty B.: "Dear Leslie, Thank you for your friendship. Time does fly and the Internet changes, but we are still here. I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas, and I hope all your wishes for 2018 will come true. Love, Kitty and Ringo." (bornwitch)

It's 8:01 PM (20:01 in 24-hour time) on September 11! YAY FOR TIME QUIRKINESS AND COINCIDENCES! :D


From Reddit on June 3, 2016: No, Faith, we do not give our official abusive exes "one last great kiss with tongue" when we're splitting our items post-breakup. You also have a gambling problem ($10,000 in debt to eBay?!) and addiction issues! While those can be fixed / resolved, I hope you never contact your ex again.




From Reddit on July 6, 2017: No, Worried19, cuckolding is not sexist or racist. I'm not a fan of fetishes, but you have some really weird opinions about gender and other things as well, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

This morning, it was time to put my shorts away and put another blanket on the bed. Then Jon decided to act like an entitled person, thinking that I could just bus to Commercial Drive from Richmond on my birthday, and threatening me that the kids wouldn't be there if I insisted that the dinner be at 6. Like, do they bug and bully and manipulate Harmony's side of the family into starting dinners at that early hour?! I'm about to cancel this whole idea of a "family" birthday dinner!


Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris finally make it to Jachol in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF. They meet this old man: "Welcome to Jachol, the town with the name that sounds too much like JACK HOLE to be a coincidence."




Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris finally make it to the Jachol Cave in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF. They open this chest to get the Thunder Whip, then decide to check it again. "There's a note inside... The great thief, Lonely Wolf, was here!" This is what happens if you let Lonely Wolf out of the jail in Walse Castle!




SEATH Jackson?! If it's pronounced as SETH anyway, why have the extra letter?!
