Eric Ho emailed me this morning to say that he wishes he could make it to the MEGA SUSHI dinner, but they've scheduled him to work a Monet art exhibit at the VAG (art gallery), so he proposed that we hang out here instead for the Canucks regular season opener on Saturday, October 7. Sounds fine to me! I also blocked a stupid idiot who thought that disrespecting my "DO NOT COMMENT" boundaries was FUNNY. Time for some Chicken Alfredo as revenge since that's his name!

After taking a nap today, I noticed that Tryanna from Pathways had called me again a couple of times, and I was able to get through to her after a couple of attempts on my end. She wanted to change tomorrow's appointment to Monday because of possible staffing issues: sure, why not? I can be flexible when ASKED about it and given a chance to decide what I want for myself! Then I realized that this would NOT give Vanessa a chance to take photos of any GOOD TASTE dumplings or JOY dumplings in a bag, so I had to go out at 4:20 on a 401 to Price Smart with my wheeled luggage bag after doing my banking anyway!

I bought Philly-Style Steak and Cheese Bistro Crustini (thanks to Jimmy C. bringing up Philly Cheesesteak foods in Facebook chat), GOOD TASTE dumplings x5 (Beef and Vegetable / Cabbage and Chicken / Cabbage and Pork / Pork and Chive / Pork and Celery), JOY dumplings x4 (Pork and Tri-Treasure / Lamb and Onion / Pork and Vegetable / Pork and Chive), on-sale Western Family Peanut Butter Cups and Chocolate ice cream, Country Beef Pot Roast Stouffers Sauté Sensations, Homestyle Roast Chicken Stouffers Sauté Sensations, and some Chicken Alfredo Stouffers Sauté Sensations because of some Facebook comment mentioning Alfredo earlier. All of that weighed about 11.3 kg, and cost about $93.35! When I got home at 5:20 on a 407 (just managing to get the bus), I changed my RSVP to say that I'd be bringing that peanut butter chocolate ice cream instead for a dessert item! Erik's also just reminded me that Thanksgiving is coming up, so I put a turkey item on my grocery list for Monday.


SECRET LOVE TRICKS?!

COFFEE TIME! Christon sent me an Evite to a potluck-style Sunday birthday dinner for him and Jeremy, which I automatically RSVPed to without checking the date. Now I have, and it's October 1 - no hockey conflicts! Maybe I'll just pick up a cake from Buy-Low for the Gwei-Loh right before dinner. The Canucks had Pre-Season Game #4 against the Kings today in SHANGHAI at 4:30 AM, and lost 5-2.


After Walse Tower (AKA Bill and Ben's Playhouse) sinks in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF, Syldra comes in to save the day for Bartz / Lenna / Galuf / Faris! Only her name is Beano in the spoof, and he seemingly comes from another planet... "No, Bartz! Beano wasn't trying to eat us! He... saved us!"




Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris make it back to Castle Walse in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF. This castle guard says, "During the king's battle with HeavyP, a man was violently expelled from the creature's ass."




Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris make it back to Castle Walse in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF. This castle guard says, "He was apparently in there for about 50 years, living as a sort of human tapeworm."




Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris make it back to Castle Walse in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF, where the king has killed himself after the events in Bill and Ben's Playhouse.

Of course she can chill here before dinner! MORE DUMPLING PHOTOS!

I noticed that Joyce - whose birthday is today - had unfriended me from Facebook. Her loss! It was also COFFEE TIME by default since I got up at 7:20 AM. Mike B. had sent me a cool message to wish me a happy early birthday, so that definitely made me smile!





"You See the World as Somewhat Just"




You don't see the world in simple terms. What's just and unjust is complicated.
You believe that justice is sometimes served, both in and outside the courts. But there is plenty of injustice to go around.

You don't expect anyone to treat you fairly or unfairly. You do your best to protect yourself from life's uncertainty.
You consider any justice you receive to be a bonus, but it's certainly not the norm.







From Julie: Stephen Colbert! Stephen Warmbert!

glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)



"Your Wine is Cabernet"




You are a resilient and successful person. You have a lot of willpower, and you are more resistant to stress than most people.
You truly appreciate the finer things in life. You are always on a hunt for the best; second place is a disappointment.

You have a strong sense of self, but it's not off-putting. You are well-mannered and can engage anyone.
You could have been very successful taking the traditional route in life, but instead, you've chosen to forge your own path.

"You Enhance Lives"




You're the type of person who likes to work quietly behind the scenes. Very few people notice all that you do.
You love to help, but you aren't looking for credit. You know that you do a lot simply being there for others.

You are steady, dependable, and loyal. You aren't just a rock, though - you also have a good spark that lights up the world.
You bring lightness and depth, optimism, and realism to others' lives. You are often what is missing.










"You Are Birdie"




You are as wise as they come. You have a good deal of life experience, and you've definitely learned from it.
You may be down to earth, but you have a wild past that few know about. And you're happy to keep it that way.

You have a lot of foresight, but you don't go around making predictions. You just let things unfold.
You are steady and encouraging. You are always rooting your friends on from the sidelines.

I was up at 6 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT!

I dreamed that I somehow flushed the toilet dry, which resulted in a flooded bathroom (?!) right before I had to leave to meet my family somewhere in Bellingham. Not that meeting them would have happened anyway, although I watched a show on separating conjoined triplets to de-stress later! "Where's Daddy?" "He's before God." No! Tell your kids that Daddy is driving a tour bus into the States for a music convention, which is the truth!

I also forgot to pack my passport and was turned away at the beauty kiosk with bus stops right before the border. I also had to walk a bit before finding just the right shortcut to go into Richmond and home. Then I emailed / messaged her sister to let her know, but my mom would still be PISSED. Thank goodness it was just a dream!

"You Are William"




You are a smart and contemplative person. You have always been ahead of your time.
You are very curious about the world and enjoy the role of observer. When it comes to many subjects, you definitely know your stuff.

You are dedicated and persistent. You may not be the most aggressive person, but you are assertive in your own way.
You find most other people fascinating. You are not one to intervene much in others' lives, but you will stand up for what is right.










"You Are Waffle Fries"




You are a bit of a rebel and even a lone wolf. You are extremely resistant to peer pressure.
You aren't one to follow the crowd, and you may even run in the opposite direction. You like the solitude of the road less traveled.

You can be a bit of a cynic at times, but you are never too pessimistic. You have a hearty appetite for all of life's experiences, including food.
You like your waffles a little different, and won't just stop at waffle fries. Falafel waffle, anyone?

It's WORLD MUSHROOM DAY today! :D

I paid my Shaw and hydro bills online after I showered and made some mushroom soup. No time for my pasta specialty if I had to make it to Jon and Harmony's at 12:30 or so on two cups of coffee! I got there at about 12:45 or so, declined lunch, and ate a piece of interesting mango chocolate for dessert instead. I played with the boys and their toy trains and arches, while answering "no" to the question of whether I lived on the Golden Gate Bridge! Eventually, we got going to the Family Centre drop-in with Harmony soon after she got home. I'm sure she would love some quiet time to herself, but that wasn't really an option. We talked about the summer and fall, my eventual birthday dinner, the hot weather, my shorts, chalk drawings, whether I'd stay for dinner, putting stickers on kites, chalk drawings at home being better than a hot playground, physio, and ratatouille / tabouli / spaghetti / THE ANTS GO MARCHING. Youtube videos, Ayler being able to serve himself after I finally got him some dinner because Hiero was having a meltdown, cantaloupe, bathroom time, beans, and emotions being okay.

Once I left at 6, I went to Oakridge Station before figuring out that I didn't have my bus pass, so went straight back to the house. It wasn't there, but it could be at the Physio Centre bathroom. Jon gave me some change for a one-time Compass Card, and Harmony called around for me. I finally got home at 7:40 on a 401, slow jabronies on the train notwithstanding. Get your kids and crap together BEFORE the train pulls into the station, people!

I had a dream where Jimmy was driving me and Tommy in a van somewhere, and Jimmy kept saying that he would choose Tommy over me, even as he dropped him off at a house somewhere before going into Richmond (where we both lived for whatever reason) and hanging out with me at a crowded conference. Okay then, subconscious! I'm probably going to make a new Facebook music group called COME AS YOU ARE, too. Tommy would automatically be blacklisted because of my rule of not typing like a moron. Punctuation is important! Jimmy says he wouldn't choose him over me, so we'll see.





"Your Intellect Eclipses Your Isolation"




You are constantly seeking to know more about the world. Understanding is always your key to happiness.
You may not be a naturally social person, but you connect with others freely when shared interest, knowledge, and passions are involved.

You are curious about the world and new ideas. You are open to changing your mind, and are constantly collecting information.
You are not quick to judge someone, even if you think you disagree. You seek to learn more instead.






Not sure about the last two sentences, especially right now at my stage of life! I can be quite comfortable judging people, especially if they act defensive / manipulative / supercilious / toxic! Trust me, I had to deal with at least one of those people last week! No, thanks! I have no time for that!

"You Are a Heath Blizzard"




You are a unique person who does your own thing in life. You are always inspired and thinking up new plans.
You can be a bit of a geek, and you wouldn't have it any other way. You like delving deep into a subject.

You tend to have some unusual preferences, but it's only because you take in so much of the world. You sample as much as you can.
You crave the comfort of the things and people you like best. However, you are always open to trying something new for a change.




glowing_dragon: (OMFG Yay!)
Since I got up at 8 AM, it was COFFEE TIME! I later showered and did laundry.





"You Should Wear Brown Sunglasses"




You are very down to earth, and your fashion choices are very classic. You don't mind paying more for quality pieces.
You are smart and savvy. You wear sunglasses not only to complete your look, but also to protect your eyes.

You always know how to dress for the occasion. Fashion for you is more like camouflage - you want people to focus on your other qualities.
You pick clothes that are comfortable and a perfect fit. You may look dressed up, but you're as comfy as can be!

Today is Left-Handers Day! I had to deal with a lot of online drama this morning, which involved some rude and condescending Penguins fan named Jennifer who thought that she had an IQ of 169, and that my "attitude problem" could be solved by talking to her. I don't THINK so! Thank goodness Helen Y. understood, while Jimmy could definitely relate, and Tommy was okay with people leaving that Metropolis Division group chat on Facebook. Hopefully, Jimmy and I can forge more of a friendship! I think it's a good sign that he says he trusts me (gotta make sure that stays) and wants me to speak my mind / anything to him. I'll just take this friendship slowly, as per usual.

In the GBA version of FINAL FANTASY VI, the diary is simply "The Queen's Diary." In the SNES version (not pictured), the diary is even more simple: "Queen's Diary." It says, "The Queen's Diary... I have fallen in love with Odin. It is a forbidden love, I know... But the flames of passion obey not rule or reason..."




This is from the SNES version: If Terra is in the FINAL FANTASY VI party at this point, she will have something to say after everyone reads the Queen's Diary. "Love between a human and an Esper..." Yes, that is her defining character trait!

It was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT at 7:30 AM this morning. After finding mouse droppings in the kitchen and looking things up online, I went to London Drugs at 10:20 on a 407. Unfortunately, there was an older lady at the bus stop who thought that I wanted to be the recipient of endless talking about when the next bus would get there. I gave her the eminently unhelpful answer of "no" when asked for the time, and an equally unhelpful answer of "five minutes ago" when asked if and when I left my house, hahaha. I also don't flip off drivers THAT often, but WHY WOULD YOU DRIVE INTO A PEDESTRIAN'S PATH WHEN THEY'RE TRYING TO CROSS AT AN UNMARKED CROSSWALK?!

No, he was not allowed to put it in the kitchen garbage can! I had readied a London Drugs plastic bag (and rubber gloves if needed) for that purpose earlier! Ni said again that the pest control would come by next month, so I called him on that. Apparently, he'd forgotten that it was now August. Still, I shouldn't have to live with that for weeks!

Shadow never appears on the Blackjack in FINAL FANTASY 6, yet he has a line in the game's content, anyway. Here he is with Setzer, Sabin, Edgar, and Gau. "... Why am I here...? For the money, I guess."

Boco the Chocobo: "Yeah, you best be getting your fat ass off me, biatch!" Lenna to Bartz: "I supoose you'll want me to repay you with sexual favors..."

Lenna: "It's been fun, but I've really gotta go. There's probably a long line of hooligans at my corner..." Boco: "Damn it, Bartz... I hate you." Boco: "Man, honestly... Bartz is gay or something." Bartz: "Ahhh... Piss water!"

I was up at 8 AM today, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT!


In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo decide to check out this jelly doughnut that they found in an Onett trash can. "A delicious-looking jelly doughnut, of the variety favored by police officers."




In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo decide to eat the jelly doughnut that they found in an Onett trash can. "This doughnut was fished out of a trash can. Do you really want to eat it?"




In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo get a Ninja Box in Onett. They decide to check it out: "It feels quite heavy, as though it were full of solid awesome."




In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness tries to use the Ninja Box in Onett. "Ness could not use the Broken cannon very well." Hey, the Ninja Box is NOT a Broken Cannon!




In EARTHBOUND TENTH ANNIVERSARY HACK, Ness / Paula / Jeff / Poo encounter the Ninja Starman on their way out of this Onett building. He wasn't there before! "Negative. Your presence here is undesirable. Prepare to be exterminated in a totally sweet fashion."

I went out at 2:45 and got two cans of NEW Comfort Creek Foods chicken and dumplings from the Dollar Tree. Then I got another pack of Samyang 2x Spicy Hot Chicken Ramen Flavor noodles from Big Crazy. Since they had a 10-cent surcharge on debit purchases, I got some Want Want snowy crackers. (which are plain and bland, so I'll give them to Chrystal) Apparently, I forgot my purple wallet there! Good thing that a lady came up behind me in the parking lot and let me know... that saved me some time and energy! Then I went to London Drugs to get a NEW Vileda cotton and microfibre mop and a NEW Vileda Quick Wring bucket - the wringer is connected to the bucket!

That's much easier than trying to get the wringer to stay on the grey bucket from people, so I threw out the old mop and bucket (along with the slightly wet toilet paper packs from yesterday) when I got home at 4. Later, I went to London Drugs again at 5:55 to get the rest of my bulky purchases: Cottonelle toilet paper x2 and on-sale SpongeTowels Ultra-Strong paper towels! I added two on-sale MAMA spicy shrimp noodles and on-sale NEW Bar Harbor fish chowder cans x2 to that as long as I was using my Royal Bank debit card. I got home at 6:35 on a 407, and I'd better not have any more emergencies in the next ten days!

I showered and did laundry today, a day earlier than I might have! However, I had to wipe a very watery bathroom floor with a mop and multiple (paper) towels, then had to do TWO loads of laundry on the THIRD floor, where one of the dryers was out of order! What stressful stramash! AIYA! I finally finished all the laundry just now at 7:30!


The FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party (Gau, Sabin, Celes, and Strago) goes to visit the crazy old man. Aged Man: "Oh, hello again! Yep, you were tops!" Sabin: "That's why we..."

Hester dropped by at 8:25 (after being VERY impatient when I didn't answer her knocking in two seconds) to inform me how lucky I was: I'm getting a new fridge / freezer tomorrow! She told her supervisors about it, and it took less than a week! I should have told her about it in May when I noticed something, but I didn't think it was great. Then I took a shower later on.


My ex-friend Marko Velimir Kobak, who's a Leafs fan!




Nail Railovich Yakupov?! I think the patronymic is cool enough, though.
