Word Facts for Mar. 26-April 1, 2011

March 31, 2011

Word origin for the weekend of Mar. 26-27, 2011: power corrupts – An oft-repeated observation is “Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The author of the sentiment, the British politician and historian Lord Acton, actually wrote “Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely” in 1887. Not all power, then, is bad, though Acton added: […]

Burnaby dogs, SCA, strangeness, Caribbean rice, plus Specialty Chicken and Wonton House

March 31, 2011

Vanessa picked me up at 11, and we were off to Burnaby for her haircut – we discussed her car leaking water, the craziness at her job, her cousins wondering why she asked about stuff they posted on Facebook, cover songs, Chinese buns, the warmer weather (yet we saw someone in a PARKA!), Steph, Teunis, […]

Rebecca Black joke, Teunis leaving, Vanessa hangout, leather or lace

March 31, 2011

Before Teunis left last night, we discussed the modern MUPPET SHOW / Sandra Bullock / Tony Bennett / Cindy Crawford / hutspot / curry powder / hot chocolate / Tess / Greek names / cinnamon / anticipation and stress / Cat / sickness / Alice Cooper on the old MUPPET SHOW (which is funnier and […]

Digital TV remotes, crab and butter, snails, meat, junk, and nutrition

March 30, 2011

When Teunis finally got up after I ate the spanokopita (spinach pie), I asked him about the Digital TV equipment, which he set up and read the warnings / instruction manuals for. He said it was Shaw’s solution to the analog TV not being supported much longer – makes sense, and his TV from Rhiannon’s […]

Traceable Shaw package, City Fresh, Safeway, and DETACHABLE PENIS

March 30, 2011

Went out in the rainy weather to go to Safeway – picked up a lot of medicine, spanokopita, cheap mango pop (42 cents?!), and other stuff there. Then we went to City Fresh for soy milk, shrimp crackers, spicy rice crackers, soy sauce, cheap imitation crab, and more; the last stop was Save-On for Doritos […]

Aphex Twin, Marilynn and Janina in a dream, nightmares, AIR, and flirting

March 29, 2011

We discussed the names Loki and Chaos, red licorice, fried chicken, Aphex Twin, WINDOW LICKER, COME TO DADDY (pretty much a “WTF?!” video), Spoz, Veronica H., and more prior to my going to bed. I had a dream in which Marilynn was adopted by Janina as a very young kid from a white house (not […]

April is NOT tomorrow! / Durian / Prank Call Accomplishment

March 29, 2011

Teunis had to get up because the Hundred Mile House folks buzzed him on Skype, so that pissed ME off. Eventually, they were forgiven since they amused me because they asked whether his birthday / April was tomorrow… CHECK YOUR CALENDARS, hahaha! We also discussed servers, motherboards, UPS battery backups, power outages, the DRAGON AGE […]

Thor, Loki, omelettes, appealing prank calls, and urban transportation

March 28, 2011

Before I went to bed, we discussed Thor and Loki walking into bars / Loki as a shapeshifter / his religion / the appeal of the prank calls to me (hey, Corey sent them!) / some of them being one step away from psychopaths / Rick Mercer on THIS HOUR HAS 22 MINUTES / omelettes […]

DON’T say "boobies" in front of the pastor, man!

March 27, 2011

When Eric picked me up this morning, he said “Good morning” – no such thing in MY world, man! I started ranting about skating and Eric’s grammar when he said there was a “fair amount” of people there yesterday – YOU DON’T DO THAT! I then started in on my “enemies” and suchlike; I’m sure […]
