I thought Chrome was being very slow last night because pages took FIVE MINUTES to load fully, which a browser restart (when I was done with editing tags in an entry) did not help. So I had to restart the computer itself, which was the actual issue. Of course, I was going to bed right before, too… ugh! This meant I had to stay up till about 2 AM when everything finally worked correctly, then I was up at about 7:10 AM. What the heck?! It was definitely time for coffee!

I had a dream that Julie S. and I had a sleepover at her place. Her friend Michael H. had called me earlier for some reason, but that was fine. Julie and I had fun showing each other weird things on the Internet, and just making food and eating a lot. From their car, my mom noticed me trying to find an acceptable part of a public grassy field to pee in – don’t ask me why Julie didn’t let me pee in her house! My sister and Lisa showed up with their dog Havarti, while my dad insisted that I call Michael back. Apparently, Dad thought he was some type of recruiter. Nope, and we explained that he could be somewhat annoying at times, too!

When my parents got back from a trip, they wondered how I could not know that I had two additional younger siblings named Carrie and Joey, neither of whom was really evident in our family photo display. My actual younger brother and his family were not even present in this dream, never mind the additional two younger siblings! Then Lisa seemed more understanding of a timezone difference, saying that Julie had been up at 6 her time because her parents had called at 9. The dream ended when Dad said that I had to put away all their dishes (what were they doing at Julie’s house?!) because he’d wash the old ones that were on the table. Yes, my dream parents never wash any dishes before going away on a trip! Ew!

The Canucks had their pre-season 2016-2017 opener against the Sharks tonight at 7:30 – the Sharks tied the game at 2 with about twenty seconds left in the GAME, and Virtanen had a shoulder injury.

After Varik stays at the Twoson hotel, the news guy is there to greet him the next morning with the newspaper headlines. “Girl’s parents found disemboweled at home, murderer unknown.”

Here’s a guy in the Twoson hotel with a bat on his head instead of a mushroom!

A girl in Dr. Andonuts’ Magicant to Varik: “Finish using the bathroom already!”

A Flying Man in Dr. Andonuts’ Magicant to Varik: “Mmmmm! Yogurt’s good.”

A Flying Man in Dr. Andonuts’ Magicant to Varik: “Another good thing is… broccoli. Maybe.”

Hey, Tomas Jefferson is inside the Flying Man house in Dr. Andonuts’ Magicant! “DID SOMEBODY SAY TACOS!?”

Man in Dr. Andonuts’ Magicant to Varik: “I’m… I’m doomed like this forever, doomed to always be opening the yogurt lid.”

A little girl in Dr. Andonuts’ Magicant to Varik: “Put on some clothes!”

The COLINBOUND party finally gets Keri back, and checks out Mr. Stack’s golden room. “This is Mr. Stack’s life-sized bear cat statue. It appears to be made out of wood.”

Girl: “Lo Wang, thank you for last night. I had fun.”

Lo Wang checks out the purple ice cave: These gravestones seem to have pieces missing here and there. How very strange…

I called Hester at 2:15 to get laundry tokens (March 23, 2016), after having to find the phone number myself inside or outside the building because I had somehow failed to note it down while switching notebooks a while ago. She wasn’t available to do that (yet was answering her phone?!), so said she’d call me back later. Yes, I had to be extra-polite to her, but that’s fine. Then she finally called me back at 5:05 (asking me if I was at home – um, DUH?!), so I went up there after turning off my phone, and she asked (as usual) why I hadn’t taken the “shorter” way up. I’m not going to drop EVERYTHING just to go upstairs right that minute, and besides, I really don’t think it saves me THAT much walking!

The Sedin twins’ art skills give their hockey skills a run for their money!

Christon sent us an Evite for his and Jeremy’s birthday celebration next weekend on Saturday, October 1 – sure, why not? It doesn’t have any conflict with Canucks training camp!

From Julie: 15-minute CUSTOMTR parking only, in front of Foot Solutions?!

Colin, Keri, and Xeria stay overnight in the Grand Beach Resort. The next day’s news headline: “Studies show ice cream consumption triples during summer.”

From CFOX: Pumpkin Spice Cheerios?!
