Welcome to Dracoburgh! / Better go to sleep! / You’re in my world now, Granny!

February 11, 2017

COFFEE TIME! The Canucks played Boston at 10 today due to some “lovely” East Coast scheduling, and lost 4-3 despite a good effort. Alex Burrows did score with 0.6 seconds left in the second! In WARRIOR DRAGON, the sign says, “Welcome to Dracoburgh.” In WARRIOR DRAGON, you get this dialogue from the Dracoburgh innkeeper after […]

Don’t fuck with Canada, America! / Penny, Inspector Gadget, and a Super Mushroom

December 6, 2016

Last night, I found Grandma’s warm lined purple wintry coat. I had trouble with the top button, perhaps because there wasn’t a buttonhole for that one, just a ribbon thing. Today, I found my spare bottle of Advil in my Certified Data messenger bag, and of course it expired in August 2015 – whoops! Then […]

December 5, 2016

DAMN YOU, KILLER SNOW! From Reddit: Well, we’re screwed on Thursday with a temperature forecast of -77 degrees!

Y-O-U-R means YOUR!” From Julie S. and The Grammar Police: The word “grammer” is Googled 1,220,000 times every month. Somebody […]

Koka noodles, finally! / DUMPLINGS! / A flayed human skull antipasto platter!

October 26, 2016

Got up at 7 AM today for whatever reason, despite going to bed at 12:45! I paid my Shaw bill and hydro bill online today before Barry picked me up for food shopping at about 1:30. We went to both banks, then to Price Smart. I bought pink Excel gum x2, tomato / spicy sesame […]

Dream of Steph crying because of parental punishment! / Fear is temporary!

July 11, 2016

I dreamed that my parents, Grandma, and I left my sister Steph at a friend’s house in the West End, and were going to go elsewhere shopping for the afternoon since it was icy and snowy outside. Then we got a phone call saying that Steph and her friend had run away, but they were […]

LORD OF THE RINGS and HARRY POTTER, astronaut Neil Young, sheep’s clothing

June 17, 2016

From January H.: LORD OF THE RINGS did not rip off HARRY POTTER! From Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader: Neil Young is not Neil Armstrong, NBC News! The LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD wolf is the wolf in sheep’s clothing?!

More new bowls! / Old 1980s picture! / The forest has gone to shambles!

December 21, 2015

Paid my hydro bill, and called to determine bowl availability at the Broadway London Drugs before I went out at 2:35, just managing to get the 401. I got two big replacement on-sale microwaveable Corelle bowls and one medium replacement on-sale microwaveable Corelle bowl at the Broadway London Drugs for full post-Mike replacement purposes after […]

Misuse of LITERALLY makes me figuratively insane! / Crayon fun! / Fraser!

September 27, 2015

This afternoon, I left at 5:35 and got to Boston Pizza at about 6. Steph, Lisa, and baby Fraser showed up soon afterwards – we got potato bites, and talked about Harmony being rude and late, Ayler pinching me last Tuesday (I did say “NO PINCHING!” since his parents aren’t big on reprimands), iced tea, […]

Grandma, Wesley, Josh, and a church library (dream) / Are You a People Pleaser?

August 19, 2015

I had a dream where Grandma tried getting me to appreciate Wesley’s humor while we were attempting to restock the church library, which consisted of one white bookshelf of paperbacks in the old church balcony. Josh A. was also talking to me on Gmail chat about our friendship while Dad was trying to get me […]
