Kwong Chow, fish heads, plans for tomorrow, Magnet with System Restore Disk

July 28, 2019

After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME and SHOWER TIME, I went out at 4:10 on a 407 for Dad’s belated 70th birthday dinner at Kwong Chow. I got a text from Jon saying that dinner was at 5:30 and they were at Granville Island (I’d already said I would be at Save-On), so I bought more (on-sale […]

Frances! / Alprentice Von Slatten?! / Cardi B named her daughter Kulture?!

June 7, 2019

After COFFEE TIME and getting some free NRG Detox Iaso tea samples from Shane in today’s mail (yay for bubble-wrap envelopes!), I went out at 2 on a 414 to see Rachel at the Caring Place. We called Shaw and I managed to get my bill lowered by about $50 per month for two years […]

Gau’s crazy father and the sidequest for manners and clothing from Jidoor!

July 16, 2017

I showered and did laundry today, a day earlier than I might have! However, I had to wipe a very watery bathroom floor with a mop and multiple (paper) towels, then had to do TWO loads of laundry on the THIRD floor, where one of the dryers was out of order! What stressful stramash! AIYA! […]

Chuao potato chip chocolate bar, God’s protection from rocks, throwing a brick

November 8, 2016

ANOTHER RENT INCREASE FORM?! I had to leave a message with Barry to tell him about this, of course. Then I spent ten minutes looking for some Koka Singapore Fried noodles which don’t actually exist in my apartment. I’m losing it! 😛 Barry called me back at 2 with good timing; we set up an […]

Delta BBQ! / LATENESS! / Ghost pepper and bourbon chicken wings!

July 17, 2016

I went out to Delta at 3:35, stopping to buy some Godiva mint chocolate chip truffle candies from Shoppers. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize I was already late till it was about 4:15 or so! Poor Lisa was waiting at the Tim Horton’s for about an hour! I definitely apologized, said it was my fault for […]

Cats in egg cartons, Dick Cherry, Sam Sung being an Apple employee, Harry Marble

April 5, 2016

Jon sent me a Facebook message to see whether I’d be there later today – yup! Someone complained on the Canada Safeway Facebook wall about the expiry dates on their veggies and dip, so I asked them whether they’d paid attention to them when they bought the food. (two people LIKED this comment!) They came […]

Cleaning hair with body wash?! / Toilet paper, REJECTED snowmen, toilets

December 2, 2015

I almost washed my hair with Irish Spring body wash last night, haha – I’m losing it! Then I tried eating my beef soup with a fork instead of a spoon just now – WTF?! Also, I discovered redrum when I got up this morning – time for Advil, all right! Vanessa told me a […]

Leaving milk out on table overnight! / Mints! / Fire and ice dragons!

July 4, 2015

I somehow left the nearly-full carton of almond milk on the kitchen counter overnight, so I had to throw it out when I discovered that at 1:30 PM. This apartment is already too warm or too hot as it is, and I don’t want to consume milk which has been left out for over 12 […]

Deodorant on toothbrush, Zatarain’s jambalaya rice, my colonial name

June 29, 2015

I almost put my deodorant onto my toothbrush this morning – Mikki aptly described it as a “Chinese blonde moment,” haha! At lunch, I decided to try the Zatarain’s jambalaya rice, which I haven’t had since April 2013. I should just microwave it for less than 16 minutes, I think. Your Colonial Name Is: Hester […]

The perfect person, flyers, dates, and two years since adding Mike / laundry tokens

March 22, 2015

I got this gem of wisdom from Reddit: “Even if you meet the perfect person, that just means they’re perfect for you at that particular place and time, based upon the 95% of them that you know about. There’s no guarantee that things won’t go to shit in the future.” That describes my relationship with […]
