Gildan socks and English being weird! (horror to horrific, terror to terrific)

January 3, 2020

After COFFEE TIME, Barry picked me up at 9:40 AM for my 10:15 AM eye clinic appointment. As usual, I waited a while to be seen, and got out at 11:25. They had a black chick doing the eye exams, who admitted she was new AND didn’t read my file, AND “had” to dilate my […]

Go big or go home! / 20% off FUCKING SALE! / Death and cremation options

December 18, 2019

I had to go banking by myself today with my Asian old lady shopping cart at 11:20 on a 401 (JUST managed to get it), then went to Staples for 60 Z-Grip Pens (July 10, 2019), and wasted time at Price Smart. Stopped at London Drugs for a new Santa hat / on-sale Smokehouse Blue […]

Balls! Understanding! Piano! Magic tricks! / Getting older at Christmas!

December 3, 2019

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 3:15 (first refilling my yearly prescription at the pharmacy next door) on a 401 (JUST IN TIME) to help with the kids. I had to leave room for a suitcase and also remember to get to the house after 4:35 because of a water shutoff till 4. Lovely! […]

Thanksgiving 2019 dinner! / Lost bus pass again?! / Beckett and waving! / Books!

October 13, 2019

Today is No Bra Day! After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 3:10 on a 407 to go to the family Thanksgiving Dinner. Killed time at Shoppers Drug Mart by buying on-sale M and Ms in Hazelnut Spread flavor, on-sale Life store brand honey lemon cough drops (the pharmacy students didn’t understand the word “lozenge”…), […]

Los Cuervos Taqueria! / Bison skirt steak! / Ceviche tostada! / Sorry I’m late!

September 8, 2019

Discovered that the front door lock is stuck and recalcitrant again before Eric M. gave me a ride at 6:50 to Los Cuervos Taqueria around Kingsway and Fraser, so I wondered how long it would take me to get in later on. I had Jeremy’s 101 THINGS TO DO WITH BEER cookbook and birthday card, […]

Mustafa Tuna is a professor?! / Slater Koekkoek?! / Sneezing on my period!

July 20, 2019

Mom sent us an email where she referred to Beckett as “Blackett” – WTF? Apparently, Uncle Timothy (Calla and Acer’s dad) is dead now too, if the mention of a memorial service is any indication! All the rest of it, I don’t care about. Mustafa Tuna?! Slater Koekkoek?! His last name is pronounced CUCKOO?! From […]

Matisse Yiu goes by “they” on Facebook when SHE is a SHE?! No need to do THAT!

June 13, 2019

From a Fearsome Vancouver Canucks group member request: Matisse Yiu?! Like Henry Matisse, the painter and artist?! SHE also goes by “they” on Facebook, like a good little special snowflake!

Brownie or cookie, middle class, Muslim name, hipster or yuppie, love language

May 19, 2019

Are You a Brownie or a Cookie? You Are A Cookie! You are an independent and versatile person. You can roll with life’s changes quite well. You are resilient and optimistic. You see the glass of milk as half full, even if you’ve been burned before. You are big on boundaries – what’s yours is […]

Jaceon?! / Mikia?! / Dakota guy?! / Jaysin?! / Jaydin?! / Janiene?!

April 23, 2019

I showered today after going to the pharmacy next door at 2 to refill my birth control prescription and buy $2 hand sanitzer x5. Good thing, too – there’s going to be ANOTHER WATER SHUTOFF tomorrow from 8 AM to 5 PM! UGH! From Julie: Jaceon?! Is that another bad spelling of Jason?! From Julie: […]

420 and Easter eggs, throwing people out the window, Zombie Jesus, beer not gas

April 20, 2019

I’m sorry your celebration of 420 has gotten in the way of remembering where you hid the Easter eggs. From Just For Laughs: You can’t always control who walks into your life, but you can control which window you throw them out of. ZOMBIE JESUS: He died for your sins, but now he’s come back […]
