Dream: Phil, his grandma, Eric, Jon, and plans / SillyBuddies

August 31, 2005

I had a dream last night in which I had to go around town with my family before a conference. We had our old Mazda MPV van, and we had to wait for my brother at a Chinese restaurant with red and gold dragons as decorations. Mom got impatient (as would happen in real life […]

Danel and spyware, posting at orgasm, word verification

August 30, 2005

I should put Chris’ friend Danel’s recommendations here for posterity: “Have you checked for spyware? .-. That’s normally what makes computers really slow. XoftSpy Ad-Aware Spyware Doctor 3.2 Seriously, if you don’t download all of those and actually use them, it’s your own fault for your computer fucking up for good, and that’s what you […]

Postcard from Charlotte / Residential Caretaker / Quirky Purchases

August 30, 2005

It seems that we finally have a new residential caretaker named Hester… I don’t know about you, but that name always makes me think of Hester Prynne from The Scarlet Letter. (another book I have to read, sometime…) Apparently, all our concerns should also be documented in writing if we call her for anything so […]

Australian accents, dinner, beef jerky, and toilets

August 30, 2005

A few things I forgot to add on my last post: * I have good memories of Joe Downer.. he was from Australia, and we all thought he was cool since he had the cutest Australian accent! (even the Gr. 8 kids thought so, haha) * My church friends Josanna, Lavone, Bonnae, and Dorothy Eang […]

Drinking / future kids / memories of people triggered by old photo albums and such

August 30, 2005

Before dinner, my brother and I made a beer run to the liquor store: SO MUCH CHOICE, AIYA! The dinner with Dave was pleasant… except for when my brother and sister took pictures of my red face. Hey, I only had some beer (LA FIN DU MONDE and some Amber Ale) and some Willow Creek […]

Billions of emails (well, not really…)

August 29, 2005

Just checked my email to find four from Lesley, and one from Auntie Rebecca: they’re ALL about church-related events. At least I’m in the loop with that, haha. Joey, Andrew Tung (clubber into leader!), Lawrence (those two are Anita’s brothers.. it’s a sibling dynasty!), Jason Wong, Amos Wong (those two were my brother’s former violin […]

Unbanned, Birth Order Predictor / More Quizzes

August 29, 2005

Apparently, I’ve been unbanned from RQ… no idea what I did in the first place to get banned, unless someone had a trigger-happy finger on the mouse. Oh well, I should just leave there ANYWAY… but whatever. I’ll figure it out later, haha. You Are Likely an Only Child At your darkest moments, you feel […]

Banned from RQ3

August 28, 2005

Hmm. Apparently, I’ve JUST been banned from RQ3 for some reason or other. It’s happened in the last five minutes, I know that much. Oh well, there’s always RQ2? haha (plus the RQ that I moderate elsewhere 😉 ) I was kinda planning on leaving that community, anyhow… I think the most likely culprit was […]

Keys in car / rambunctious kids / money and things everywhere!

August 28, 2005

Eric locked his keys in the car this morning, as he has a habit of doing… Dad to the rescue! We finally got going at 9:45, and got to church at 10:10… just in time for the little kids to be dismissed / the Scripture reading / the sermon. My sister was definitely looking at […]

Dream: Lucas and Hannah’s dad as Charlie Brown’s dad?

August 28, 2005

I had a dream last night that I’d like to quickly share with you all before I go to church with my beloved friend Eric. 😀 My church was holding a performance of some PEANUTS stories, and Uncle William (Lucas and Hannah N.’s dad and Uncle Stanley’s brother, who left our church after the whole […]
