DOUBLE COFFEE TIME! The Canucks had Pre-Season Game #5 against Edmonton tonight at 6, and lost 5-3.

From Not Always Right: Draci A. Marcantel?! Shouldn’t that be DARCI? It also reminds me of DRACO, hahaha!

From Not Always Right: Samii Birdsall?! Shouldn’t that be SAMI as in DAYS OF OUR LIVES?

From Not Always Right: Heather Peacock?! I like the last name and the DRAGON!

From Not Always Right: Dhani Rose Caldwell?! Reminds me of DHARMA AND GREG or Dasani water!

“Your Autumn Lipstick is Dusty Rose”


You are wise and quietly smart. You often know more than most people, but you tend to keep that to yourself.
You appreciate subtlety in everything. You think most people try too hard, and you always prefer nuance.

You are naturally stylish, and you’ve got that effortlessly chic thing down. You have an eye for beauty.
No one sees how much work goes into your look, and you like it that way. Your makeup enhances, but doesn’t distract.


“You Are Chocolate Frosting”


You’re the first to admit that you’re a bit old-school, but you prefer the term “classic.”
Unlike a lot of modern people, you don’t believe in depriving yourself. A little indulgence is a good thing, especially if it’s frosting!

You take good care of yourself, and you never forget to look after your loved ones. You are naturally thoughtful and generous.
You are the type of person who likes to work behind the scenes. You don’t think of yourself as anything special, but people wouldn’t want to live without you.

From Julie: James Caan! James Can’t!

Eric Ho emailed me this morning to say that he wishes he could make it to the MEGA SUSHI dinner, but they’ve scheduled him to work a Monet art exhibit at the VAG (art gallery), so he proposed that we hang out here instead for the Canucks regular season opener on Saturday, October 7. Sounds fine to me! I also blocked a stupid idiot who thought that disrespecting my “DO NOT COMMENT” boundaries was FUNNY. Time for some Chicken Alfredo as revenge since that’s his name!

The SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE party (Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad) finally makes it to Onrac. This woman tells them. “You have legs!”

In SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE, Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad go to the Flying Fortress. They obtain the Adamantite: “The legendary metal.”

In SUPER MARIO FANTASY ADVENTURE, Mario / Luigi / Yoshi / Toad finally make it to the final dungeon, the Chaos Temple 2000 years in the past. They use the Whistle from Princess Toadette. “The tune plays, revealing a stairway.”

From Julie: Thor! Hipsthor!

After taking a nap today, I noticed that Tryanna from Pathways had called me again a couple of times, and I was able to get through to her after a couple of attempts on my end. She wanted to change tomorrow’s appointment to Monday because of possible staffing issues: sure, why not? I can be flexible when ASKED about it and given a chance to decide what I want for myself! Then I realized that this would NOT give Vanessa a chance to take photos of any GOOD TASTE dumplings or JOY dumplings in a bag, so I had to go out at 4:20 on a 401 to Price Smart with my wheeled luggage bag after doing my banking anyway!

I bought Philly-Style Steak and Cheese Bistro Crustini (thanks to Jimmy C. bringing up Philly Cheesesteak foods in Facebook chat), GOOD TASTE dumplings x5 (Beef and Vegetable / Cabbage and Chicken / Cabbage and Pork / Pork and Chive / Pork and Celery), JOY dumplings x4 (Pork and Tri-Treasure / Lamb and Onion / Pork and Vegetable / Pork and Chive), on-sale Western Family Peanut Butter Cups and Chocolate ice cream, Country Beef Pot Roast Stouffers Sauté Sensations, Homestyle Roast Chicken Stouffers Sauté Sensations, and some Chicken Alfredo Stouffers Sauté Sensations because of some Facebook comment mentioning Alfredo earlier. All of that weighed about 11.3 kg, and cost about $93.35! When I got home at 5:20 on a 407 (just managing to get the bus), I changed my RSVP to say that I’d be bringing that peanut butter chocolate ice cream instead for a dessert item! Erik’s also just reminded me that Thanksgiving is coming up, so I put a turkey item on my grocery list for Monday.

SECRET LOVE TRICKS?!

Philly-Style Steak and Cheese Bistro Crustini: Layers of tender steak, peppers, onions, and cheese in a flaky crust!

Western Family Peanut Butter Cups and Chocolate ice cream: A decadent combination of chocolate ice cream with swirled peanut butter ribbons and loaded with chocolate peanut butter cups. Peanut butter and chocolate heaven.

Homestyle Roast Chicken Stouffers Sauté Sensations: Homestyle roast chicken with hearty vegetables in a rich gravy!

Country Beef Pot Roast Stouffers Sauté Sensations: Country beef pot roast with chunky vegetables in a rich gravy!

COFFEE TIME! Christon sent me an Evite to a potluck-style Sunday birthday dinner for him and Jeremy, which I automatically RSVPed to without checking the date. Now I have, and it’s October 1 – no hockey conflicts! Maybe I’ll just pick up a cake from Buy-Low for the Gwei-Loh right before dinner. The Canucks had Pre-Season Game #4 against the Kings today in SHANGHAI at 4:30 AM, and lost 5-2.

After Walse Tower (AKA Bill and Ben’s Playhouse) sinks in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF, Syldra comes in to save the day for Bartz / Lenna / Galuf / Faris! Only her name is Beano in the spoof, and he seemingly comes from another planet… “No, Bartz! Beano wasn’t trying to eat us! He… saved us!”

Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris make it back to Castle Walse in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF. This castle guard says, “During the king’s battle with HeavyP, a man was violently expelled from the creature’s ass.”

Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris make it back to Castle Walse in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF. This castle guard says, “He was apparently in there for about 50 years, living as a sort of human tapeworm.”

Bartz, Lenna, Galuf, and Faris make it back to Castle Walse in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF, where the king has killed himself after the events in Bill and Ben’s Playhouse. The party comes across this soldier in bed. “I’ve been living in a monster’s intestines for 50 years. Go figure. I can finally eat real food again.”

Turns out that Tryanna from Pathways was calling me from a private number a lot yesterday, but I finally picked up this morning to see what the heck was up with all those repeated calls. Turns out that she had a cold and couldn’t do food shopping today, so we settled on Friday at 1 instead. Auntie Catherine also emailed to wish me a happy belated birthday, and says that we should catch up in the second half of October after her Hong Kong trip with Uncle Y.C. Sure, why not? The Canucks had Pre-Season Game #3 against Calgary tonight at 6, and won 5-3. Time to get some sleep before the Shanghai game against the Kings!

From Reddit: Thongporn Buttasin is a real name?!

I went out at 3:10 (just managing to catch the 401) to London Drugs to buy a new Vileda PowerFibres toilet brush and holder, a new Vileda dust pan, new store brand multivitamins, Clover Leaf pink salmon x2, and Gilette bar mop towels x2. I also mailed something to Julie, and got home at 3:45 on another 401 bus. Laurie is in for the MEGA SUSHI dinner, too! MORE COFFEE!

Vileda dust pan!

“You Are Wise”


You are a steady, smart, and savvy person. You can be counted on to keep your head, even in times of crisis.
You spend a lot of time thinking, and you value knowledge. You are constantly learning.

You seek to understand first no matter what. From there, you can lend assistance and support the best you can.
You are constantly growing your perspective. You feel like there is always more to be gained from seeing the bigger picture.

I called Mega Sushi for a reservation for Sunday at 7 (but they won’t guarantee the table if I’m ten minutes late – which is why I’m not bothering to change the time of the FB event since people will be late anyway!), then called Chrystal at work to confirm Sunday’s dinner.

I’m a lady, but “fuck that shit” is still a perfectly acceptable substitute for the word NO.

From This Is True: A felon named Fellony Hudson was charged in July with new felonies in Vancouver, Washington!

From Facebook on September 19, 2017: What the heck is a bericht or a dinsdag?! I think I jokingly blame Kitty for this one, as everything else is in English!

From Pete and Check This Out: A blue whale can make a fart bubble big enough to fit a horse in it. There. That’s a thing you know now.
