Ten Reasons Why English Is Weird!

1. The bandage was wound around the wound.
2. The farm was used to produce produce.
3. The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
4. We must polish the Polish furniture.
5. He could lead if he would get the lead out.
6. The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
7. Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.
8. A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.
9. When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.
10. I did not object to the object.


I went to London Drugs at 2:50 to get replacement sturdy pub glasses x4 to use for my laundry detergent (February 22) / Purell hand sanitizer x4 (aloe, Ocean Kiss, original, Spring Breeze) / cherry Coke, and got home at 3:30. Good thing I didn’t cut my fingernails after Jon mentioned it last week because I had to get the silver foil off the hand sanitizer bottles!

I’ve found the key to happiness. Stay away from assholes!

Giant 13-pound sushi roll from Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!


I got a bunch of emails last night about how salad could kill you – thanks, Dylan! Pastor Dan also wants to start small group up again in September, but Jason and Vicky will be out of town. I also finished tagging myself in all my video game enemies picture albums on Facebook at 1 AM, so YAY for that! Then I got an email today from Mom, spelling Dad’s “Blaardine” nickname as “Bradin.” WTF?

Before I went out today at 1:20 to do my banking, I was responsible and paid my hydro and Shaw bills. I also went to Shoppers Drug Mart to get some Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips (8 February 2012), NEW store-brand Thai Chicken soup, NEW store brand Mexican chicken soup, and on-sale White Cheddar and Broccoli Sidekicks x2 for only a dollar each. Then I got home at 2:05 to shower and do some much-needed laundry!


You are not going to get to know me if you spell “each other” as one word in your very first Reddit message (then insist you’re educated and have done research), lack reading comprehension (“a long-term relationship” does NOT mean a FWB situation), or are only 25 years old since we’d have nothing in common. “GOKU GAIN,” indeed…

I decided that it was time to use one of my Panago Pizza coupons tonight: two medium pizzas for $20 plus tax and delivery fee equals less than $25, not including tip! Steak mushroom melt: cheesy cheddar sauce, steak, bacon, sautéed mushrooms, mozzarella, and cheddar. Buffalo chicken: Hot buffalo sauce, grilled chicken, sautéed mushrooms, red onions, red peppers, mozzarella, and cheddar.


I replied to Mandy’s email about baby Fraser tonight, and did a bunch of Facebook photo album tagging work and editing.

The 2014 Youth Trout Rodeo winners include… Bear Hertwig?! Didn’t Alicia Silverstone name her son Blu Bear?!


I got up today to another Reddit message saying that SOMEBODY had (temporarily) banned me from TrollXChromosomes [March 17, 2014] for a week. Hey, sometimes being judgmental IS needed, especially when it comes to certain people’s morals when they have sex with married men! Yes, I’m talking about PineappleFields4Evr. So, whatever!

Cop at Onett police station, to Ness: ” “Don’t Enter” means just that — “DO NOT ENTER!” … You got that?”


I left at 2:45 to get a pack of 100 index cards from London Drugs before I got to Jon and Harmony’s early. When Harmony got home, Jon left for his SERVANTS event. We talked about Holly, Everett being one year old now, Peter working part-time, her parents moving, Myles, Brittney’s dad recently dying, the September plans since Ayler will be in an Oakridge preschool (Tuesdays or Saturdays!), whether I’d seen Chrystal lately (nope), Emily and Sam’s wedding banquet being at Westwood Plateau in Coquitlam (the same place where Myles and Brittney had theirs), their biking at the seawall earlier, Music Together class, my always having a bed at my parents’ place, and visiting baby Fraser in the future. When Hiero came out of his room, he held my hand while pointing at the animals on my BORN TO BE WILD T-shirt. Ayler came out of his room and immediately sat on my lap, wanting me to hold him; he touched my chin a lot, which I later learned was his testing to see if I had a beard. We walked to the Mount Pleasant Library shortly afterwards to return books and play with huge blocks for 15 minutes until closing time at 6, and Harmony wondered whether I’d be okay. Sure, no problem! Then we stopped by the grocery store to buy plums and mandarin oranges, where Harmony discovered that they’d overcharged her! Later, Ayler wanted to look at the PRESS THIS book.

At 6:30, it was time for a dinner of eggs / congee / yellow gazpacho / blueberries / cheese / raisins / bran cereal / coconut water / milk / tortilla chips / water / juice. The boys liked being silly and dancing around, so I did that for them! Hiero was not a fan of the sour blueberries or the tortilla chips; he even offered me a chip which he’d just put in his mouth. No, thanks! Jon called to see how things were going, then called even later to say that he’d be home after 9 because he had to drive someone home who had a washing machine. The boys and I played with an Etch-A-Sketch, musical toys, monkeys, and a blue toy with a key and yellow buttons as Ayler said “Daddy / Mommy / work / come / nuts / milk.” I left soon after Jon got home; apparently, Ayler’s name for me is “Aut,” which works. Good thing I didn’t have to wait very long for the 3 bus, and I just managed to get the 99 UBC B-Line! I got home at 10:05, which was fine.

The FINAL FANTASY IV party finally makes it into Troia Castle’s moat. Cecil, Tellah, Yang, and Cid talk to the frogs in the water. “Yes, my name is Jeremiah. How did you know?” This is a reference to the JEREMIAH WAS A BULLFROG song!


Jon wanted to change plans for about an hour earlier today – sure, why not? I’m chill when it comes to that kind of thing! Then I started out my day with a WIN at Solitaire at 8 AM: YAY for a score of 3521!

Ja Colbi?! About a year ago, I had a Facebook friend request from someone named “Ja Herbs.” This just ups the ante and makes me think of Colby cheese. Also, it should be “Jacob.” Reminds me of Jachol in FINAL FANTASY V, too.

Jon wanted to know if I could help Harmony with the kids tomorrow (Saturday) from 5:30 to 8, as he’s at a SERVANTS event – hey, that’s better for my sleep schedule, haha!

You Should Have Croissants

You are well-grounded and down to earth. You know what you like, and you’re happy to pursue it.
You are consistent, but you are far from boring. You have a depth and understanding of the world that others admire.

You are the kind of person who likes to make the ordinary extraordinary. You believe that every day should be special.
You refuse to be part of any drudgery or grind. Life is too short to feel like one day is wasted.



OCDL Note: I now have 606 categories, as I’ve just added “liked posts” and deleted “Jaymi.”

You Are Connected

You live a very mindful life, and you pay close attention to the world around you. You are aware.
Even when you are alone, you are engaging your senses fully. You never feel too isolated.

You value your time with others, and in general, you may be more social than not. It’s how you stay a part of the world.
However, being connected also means enjoying some rest and relaxation. You recharge in a way that enhances your relationship with others.

From Mikki and Word Porn: I wonder what people who write “u” and “ur” do with all their extra time.
