4-3 loss to the Jets / The City Life Test

January 31, 2014

Tonight’s game against Winnipeg was special in a way, as it was the first time that the Canucks had played there since 1996. Unfortunately, the Canucks lost 4-3, which is bad. Your Ideal City Life is Leisurely You would love taking part in all the city has to offer, you wouldn’t want to be part […]

Chinese New Year! / Bad moods impacting trips, Lotus Pho, and Super Bowl snacks

January 31, 2014

新年快乐! GUUNG HEY FAT CHOY! HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR 2014! It’s the year of the Wooden Horse! It’s the Year of the Wooden Horse, or 4712 in the Chinese calendar! The usual suspect called me yesterday afternoon, so I immediately greeted him with “If you really think that I would dress up as a whore […]

Cough syrup expiry / Juice expiry OVER A YEAR AGO! / NO WHORE! / Season look / Chun Li

January 30, 2014

I discovered that my cough syrup expired a few days before my birthday last year (on September 13), and also that my SunRype FruitPlus Legume blueberry juice from Shoppers Drug Mart expired over a year ago, on 1/21/2013. I guess I should throw them both out! This is why GARBAGE CANS IN THE BATHROOM are […]

Eric Ho and the 5-2 loss to Chicago, and nuts / What Dosha Is Your Mind?

January 29, 2014

Chinese Eric called me this afternoon to see what I was doing later. Since my plans just were to stay home and take in the Vancouver-Chicago game, I didn’t mind if he came over to watch it! When he got here at 7:15, we immediately went to Subway to get on-sale subs: chicken! We discussed […]

Hitler and OK Cupid girls, alcohol, slippery slopes, Portland, and STREET FIGHTER

January 29, 2014

On Monday night, the usual suspect said that he could bring over my London Drugs bag and the Superstore poutine chips if we were still doing something, so I figured I might as well give him the gross sauerkraut noodles and the lobster chips. Turns out he finished the lobster chips, in part because I […]

Cute “whatever” response! / Winter coat style

January 28, 2014

Since Michael is still sleeping on the couch, I might as well do laundry and read. I don’t want to disturb him too much! Wouldn’t be surprised if he thought my “it’s 1:30!” utterance was a dream, though. Cute! He did respond “whatever,” which is cool. I had to kiss him briefly, of course. You […]

Chinese New Year ecard, ANOTHER opposition hat trick, foreign desserts

January 27, 2014

Elizabeth sent me a Chinese New Year horse ecard from 123Greetings, which is nice! Karla’s friend Midge M. added me on Facebook, which is fine. She thought we were friends already, but that’s not true. I do recognize the name from Scrabulous, though! Replied to Mandy’s emails, too – baby is cute, but family pettiness […]

Safety with the usual suspect, birth announcement, 5-4 overtime win, baby!

January 26, 2014

At least talking to the usual suspect last night calmed me down a little. Today, I checked my Trash folder to find that Jon had emailed people like Mom (not me?!) an official birth announcement for baby Hiero. Apparently, his name is pronounced “high-row” and Henri Nouwen was an inspiration for his middle name. At […]

Messages and pictures of baby / What’s Your Jazz Name?

January 25, 2014

I left the ugfart a message this afternoon to say that Mike and I had both seen the picture of the baby (true), that we’d both thought the same thing independently about the name Hiero (“it almost sounds Japanese!”), and that we’d hopefully see the baby in the future. That’s my duty as an aunt, […]

Poutine chips? THWARTED! / Sonic Friends tagging picture!

January 24, 2014

The usual suspect called from Superstore at 6 to say that he’d seen poutine chips, but someone had grabbed those two bags while he was calling! Oh dear! Since he planned to work afterwards, I simply thanked him and said I’d talk to him later. Here’s a Sonic Friends tagging picture!
