Nacho tombstone?! / PACHELBEL’S CANON, blankets, online school, onomatopoeia

March 31, 2020

Ayler called me at 3 to talk about Beckett going around with a blanket on his head (the same one that Hiero pulled off – and then Hiero was upset for five minutes), playing a six-page version of PACHELBEL’S CANON which took seven minutes to complete, knowing a couple of six-syllable words (“onomatopoeia” and “responsibility”), […]

The Butt Brothers?! / Birthday gifts, new rules, Hudson, talking a lot, schedule

March 28, 2020

Ayler called me at 9:40 AM to read me their schedule for the day: free play, mealtimes, piano, spelling, reading, and bedtime at 8 or so! He also says that his new rule should be that he can stay up 15 minutes later every year on his birthday. I said that sounds like a good […]

Mathias Jakshitz and Theressa Jakshitz?! / Oatmeal, pork, Auntie, puzzles!

March 24, 2020

Ayler and Hiero surprisingly called me at 10:20 AM, which is how I discovered that my phone was still on from last night, but that was a good thing in this case! This time, I was prepared with the light on AND my reading glasses very nearby! They wanted to call since we only talked […]

Ima Hogg tombstone?! / Nerfnow Comics: A treasure chest of toilet paper!

March 23, 2020

\Ayler called me briefly at 6, but I had to scramble to get my reading glasses in order to read the Caller ID, so I missed it. When I called them back immediately afterwards, the phone was busy! I checked my text messages instead, in hopes of getting ones from yesterday. There was one from […]

Chalupa tombstone?! / Canucks 50th / Honey Garlic Noodles! / Michelle dead now?!

March 17, 2020

It’s St. Patrick’s Day 2020 today! I went out at 1:50 to get 1.14 litres of regular Bailey’s from the liquor store, 3 pounds of Parkay margarine / Cinnamint, Fresh Mint, and Spearmint Mentos gum x3 / 300 Mead index cards / NEW limited-edition Olympic Dairy raspberry-cranberry yogurt from Price Smart, and six more on-sale […]

Romanovs! / Knorr Cheesy Spinach Dip! / Paulo’s birthday Cascade Room and Colony

March 14, 2020

The Romanovs: The Real History of the Russian Dynasty, Part 1 The Romanovs: The Real History of the Russian Dynasty, Part 2 I left at 4:30 to meet Paulo and Darryl at the Cascade Room (2616 Main Street, near Main and Broadway-ish, more like Main and 10th) for Paulo’s belated birthday hangout at 6. I […]

Huge bucket of coffee, Stonehenge changing clocks, Paul Assman and Edith Assman

March 8, 2020

It’s Daylight Savings Time 2020 (ugh) AND International Women’s Day today! The Canucks played the Blue Jackets tonight at 7, and lost 2-1. From Julie M. and Fun Pics and Stuff: Coffee sizes – tall cup, grande cup, and a huge bucket for the day after Daylight Saving Time starts! From my ex-friend Fiann: Man, […]

Bird-In-Hand, Pennsylvania?! / Marvyn Benoit?! BAD SPELLING OF MARVIN!

March 7, 2020

It’s World Book Day today! The SFX Off-Topic group will NOT get a reminder this year for everybody to change their clocks for Daylight Saving Time. International members get too stroppy because “not everyone is in the United States [I could say the same to YOU since I’m in Canada!]” and “we changed our clocks […]

Pure Nail Bar / Biggerstaff?! / Coronavirus T-shirt / Lent / Today and tomorrow!

March 4, 2020

After COFFEE TIME / SHOWER TIME / CLEANING FRIDGE TIME (yucky sticky prune juice!), I went out at 1:30 on a 401 to finally redeem that Pure Nail Bar gift card from Christmas 2019 for a pedicure before going to help with the kids. I thought I’d be on time, but NO… the 3 bus […]

Schwing tombstone?! PARTY ON! / Superfriends isn’t toxic! / DIDIBUG! / LICKING!

March 3, 2020

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 2:40 on a 401 which JUST waited for me to help with the kids. Six minutes according to the new Translink website is not enough time to be comfortable – ten is way better! I got to the house at 4, managing to have a text conversation with […]
