Pork hock, Schweppes ginger ale, bamboo shoots, strawberry cupcakes

July 31, 2015

I called Barry at 12:30, concerned that he’d forgotten our noon appointment – he’d thought it was at 1! He picked me up at 12:45 instead, and we were off to Price Smart. I got two cans of bamboo shoots, cans of Schweppes ginger ale to kill a memory dragon (Mike had bought some for […]

What DIRTY DANCING Song Are You?

July 31, 2015

What DIRTY DANCING Song Are You? You Are “Hungry Eyes” You are a deeply passionate person, and as hard as you try, you simply can’t ignore your heart. Your emotions overtake you. You wear your intensity on your sleeve, and you don’t consider that to be a bad thing. Your passion is who you are. […]

The 301 bus / Steph and Lisa’s new place / Blue and white dragon bowl!

July 31, 2015

I thought I left in plenty of time to catch the 301 Newton Express bus at Brighouse, but I saw two 430 Metrotown buses go by at that bus bay. By the time I finally got to the Tim Horton’s parking lot, it was past 5:25! Steph said the last 301 bus had gone by […]

Music class, Ayler saying “Daddy” / “HI” / “aunt,” Leap Frog, tofu scramble

July 30, 2015

At least I got out of the house this morning in plenty of time to catch the bus to Brighouse; there was no way that I’d catch the Canada Line train just pulling into the station. I killed a few minutes at Shoppers Drug Mart (which had just opened at 8 AM), buying on-sale Coffee […]

Getting up at 6 AM! / What Canadian City Are You?

July 30, 2015

I got up at 6 AM today, which theoretically should give me time to sort of catch up on Facebook and Reddit before I have to leave shortly after 8 AM. However, I did have to restart the computer since it was being slow, so maybe not. You Are Calgary You are a very down […]

Loony Canadian laws about Sasquatches, clotheslines, and more!

July 29, 2015

This list of loony laws is from Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader Weird Canada (Bathroom Readers’ Institute) You may not drag a dead horse down Yonge Street (one of the more infamous streets in Toronto) on a Sunday. You may not eat ice cream on Bank Street (the major shopping street in downtown Ottawa) on a […]

Mike Oleksa is a scamming liar! / Roller Derby position / Jumbo scallops!

July 29, 2015

Steph emailed me at 8 AM to say that I could come over whenever tomorrow, so that’s good. Upon checking the CRIMINAL MISCHIEF hockey group, I discovered that Mike Oleksa is a fraudulent liar who made up stories about a dead girlfriend and serving in the military! HA HA HA – BUSTED BY A REVERSE […]

My literary name / Unverse, coments, Ruffini the dog, and “you inventory”

July 28, 2015

Last night, I heard that the Seattle true crime writer Ann Rule has died! I set up a food shopping appointment with Barry for Friday at noon earlier today. Then I went to London Drugs at 5:45 to get an extra red washcloth and extra red handtowel before I forgot. I also got two regular […]

The word RAPE should not be censored for sensitive people! / How I forgive / Veggie stew

July 27, 2015

Some idiot on Reddit by the name of FuchsiaLady censored the word “rape” as “r@pe” last night, and I told her that we were all adults in this audience. Yes, rape can be traumatic, but if you’re triggered by merely seeing the word “rape,” I don’t know what to say. Censoring words for an adult […]

Excelsior renaming itself to Sanbo / Harissa vegetable stew

July 26, 2015

When I saw on Reddit (r/vancouver) that Excelsior Restaurant across the street from Richmond Centre (where I treated Mike to lunch on September 25, 2013), I obviously had to go eat there at 12:35 to kill that memory dragon! I had beef and enoki mushrooms instead of squid and fish, but it was still spicy […]
