Joni Mitchell and same names

March 31, 2003

When you hear the name “Joni Mitchell,” you think of the Canadian folk artist.. right? Well.. apparently, there is a country singer with the name Jonie Mitchell.. spelled with an “e” at the end, sure.. but it still sounds the same if we were speaking the name! Having the same first and last name (or […]

My distinctive feature is chewing gum?! / Disbelieving April Fools stuff

March 31, 2003

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEAH.. hope you have a rocking one, wherever you are! 🙂 I remember when you and Shira came over once and asked if Jon was home.. you needed him to help you with math. That was a cool random memory.. I just saw my brother on MSN and asked him what kind of […]

Well, here they are.. the funniest quotes of the week: HILARIOUS QUOTES OF THE WEEK (3) “aren’t decaplets.. twins born with no heads? no surprise you’d run riot with me mentioning twins [really octuplets and upwards] in a post, though..” — Spoz, trying to figure out names for the highest of higher-order multiples.. and jokingly […]

Religious studies essays / Primetime

March 30, 2003

Well, at least I seemed to have gotten a lot of sleep (almost nine hours.. woohoo!). My brother had to do a religious studies essay on the computer, so I went to bed after I watched Primetime! Among other things.. the show featured a worm-eating competition, the woman with the world’s longest fingernails (261 inches […]

No Awana because of SARS

March 29, 2003

Well, there was no Awana today (nor will there be next week) because of SARS. It’s just a precaution.. no air circulation in the church, and with a good percentage of the 500 church people being children and seniors (with their weaker immune systems), we certainly don’t want to take any chances! (there’s one isolated […]

MSN name suggestions from Spoz

March 29, 2003

Last night was certainly fun.. hung out at the church till 11:40 PM. (way later than usual) Ate a lot of popcorn chicken, the chips with salsa, a spring roll, and various other foodstuffs. Had a great time with my friends as well. I’m feeling sleepy now, as I didn’t sleep well last night at […]

Creative slumps

March 28, 2003

Damn creative slump.. not feeling any more creative now than I was yesterday. I’ve started a little thread about it over at the Unaboard.. predictably, it has gotten no replies so far. Oh well.. there better be input in the thread when I get back tonight. If not.. never mind. And yes.. I *was* going […]

Finding a new MSN name

March 28, 2003

Been trying to find a new MSN name. Somehow, “don’t YOU be calling me a pinhead :P” wasn’t really doing it for me anymore.. especially as it was an inside-jokey reference with limited currency. I could go with the Richmond Crew jokes, but names based on themes of booty / bombing (NOT the kind you’re […]

Doozies of excuses from the #15 Bathroom Reader

March 27, 2003

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DONALD.. hope you have a good one! 🙂 I remember when you were four or five years old, and would always call me “turkey”.. I really hope you and your family found a church home that was closer to Pitt Meadows than Vancouver was. Here are some stories of people who came up […]

March 26, 2003

Reposted in LJ / GJ under the title “Strange Laws.” Ah, thank goodness I have so many books about weird stuff. I’ve been staring at this browser window for over an hour while reading some of my weird books, and wondering what to post.. I think I found something. Here are some loony laws that […]
