ESC and other abbreviations / Quiz Heaven stuff

Oh, and I've just received a message from one of you people out there reading this thing.. apparently, Sarah Moore thinks the ESC stands for some sort of environmental organization. No, definitely not. With that in mind, here's a handy-dandy list of abbreviations / acronyms / whatever you call those things.. print it out to stick on your fridge. ;)

VCEFC = Vancouver Chinese Evangelical Free Church
ESC = English Speaking Congregation
CSC = Chinese Speaking Congregation
CRU = Campus Crusade for Christ
AWANA - Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (taken from 2 Timothy 2:15.. go look it up yourself :P)

More to come as people ask me about them.

What kind of animal are you?


Playful and lively, you make bonds easily and are very very loyal. Not the cleverest of creatures, but the most friendly. Your enemies are the cat and bird.

Burrning Sean, again!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CRISTY! Hope you have a good one, wherever you are! :)

Had a hilarious time yesterday when we went out to eat.. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Let's just say it involved burning a certain friend of ours.. actually, Sean brought it on himself. :) ("I want a hot mama who can bear me thirty children in ten years.. I don't care if having triplets every year for ten years in a row is impossible.. my sperm is very powerful and can exhaust the system of her ovaries.. I wasn't talking about ovaries, I was talking about POETRY.." indeed...)

Today, I am definitely looking forward to going to Awana and seeing all the kids.. that'll be truly a good thing! Tomorrow, we have another church meeting.. but you can bet that the ESC will be hanging out in the balcony. (even though 50 people up there really is unsafe according to the building codes in effect now.. why do you think we're building a new church? :P) Though when it's 12:50 PM like it is now, I should eat or something before leaving.

Thread closings, haha

Okay, so my thread has been closed. I haven't looked at it since I put it up, and I'm not sure I'll look at it now. It was meant to be a light-hearted and funny one.. guess SOME people don't see it. It's a good thing no one really reads or comments on this, otherwise I'd be getting flamed big-time.. ;)

And not that anybody reads this for updates on the SDMB being down, but it's down again as of ten minutes ago. Time to check out other sites! (like I haven't been doing so anyhow :P)

On that note, I should add that I finally got my replacement bus pass in the mail today.. woohoo! :)

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FAIRYCHATMOM.. hope you have a good one! :)

Emails and people not showing up

Is anyone reading this? If so, everyone raise your hands and tell me just how much you all HATE people who don't bother to show up when they say they will.. had that experience AGAIN today.. sheeeeeeeeeeesh! At least LET ME KNOW if you're not going to show up! man, oh man..

The person I was supposed to meet called me up just now and it turns out we were at the same pizza place, but we missed each other.. weeeeeeeeeeeird. Then again, perhaps not so weird, considering we have no idea on what the other looks like. Next week, perhaps. If he's going to pick me up at the apartment, then we definitely won't miss each other. (and for those of you with overactive imaginations, this person is my new social worker.. NOT some dude I'm looking to establish a relationship with :P)

On another note, I got myself another book chock-full of trivia questions and answers at Chapters.. I can hear you now: "MORE of that stuff?!?" You betcha.. I live for the weird facts and stuff.. :P (never mind that they never tend to stay in my brain for very long.. that's why I have books with the facts inside, so I can look them up later on when I want to)

Just got an email from some dude entitled "sheesh!".. one part of me really doesn't want to know what that's about, and it's cringing inside / wondering what I did to deserve such approbation (certainly some things, I know.. but recently? oh goodness) .. and the other part of me says that I at least have to open it and see what's up.. now is the moment of truth, I guess...

Turns out the "sheesh!" wasn't directed at me, but at certain other people on the SDMB.. thank goodness for that! here's the email, with certain identifying information left out: (for those of you who want to know, email me)

I was just reading your thread that ponders the age old question, "What if Cecil was banned?" Waitaminute... you may be the first person to have ever posted a thought like this and that would make you a visionary.

BTW - I really like the thread and am working on a reply, but I am also thinking what the heck is some people's problem?

[Certain people] seem to have a dislike of you for some reason, but I wouldn't get too worked up over it. That just wastes valuable energy that you should save for thinking up some seriously strange yet refreshing questions.

I know quite well who he's talking about, but won't give them the satisfaction of being mentioned directly here. I'm not going to let it get to me at all.. there's nothing I can do about it, and I won't compromise or back down just so that they will like me. Of course, I care what people think of me, but there's only so far you can go until you start messing up your own ideals. Those people haven't really ever liked me.. I met one of them some time ago, and she seemed nice enough at the time, but you never know.. not worth the time or energy to get seriously bugged over, in my opinion.

Actually, the name on the email sounds kind of similar to that of some other dude I used to know in Gr. 11.. wonder whatever happened to Keith Holmgren.. did the dude achieve musical fame on Broadway and such like he was hoping to? Who knows.. but I haven't thought of the dude in years, and seeing the (different) name on the email has brought back memories of music concerts and goings-on in the music portable. (no, not THOSE kinds of goings-on.. he was gay :P)

Back to the grind, then... P also called me "m'lady" and bid me adieu, as his mattress was calling him. That's so sweet, and made me grin like I haven't in a week or so! :D

Could Cecil get banned from the SDMB?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ROY! It was really fun having you around when my brother would invite you and the guys over to jam and make music.. definitely was cool. Have a suitably rocking one! :)

ah yes.. my fingers and toes aren't quite so cold anymore! :) I turned up the thermostat here a few degrees, and it's amazing that now I'm just that tiny bit warmer! now, to sleep.. and to have weird dreams of my sister having babies, an Outlander influence, someone getting banned on the SDMB (hmm.. I wonder what it would be like if Cecil got banned?), and other things.. (okay, maybe not, but that was what my dreams were about last night!) and no.. the Doper getting banned was NOT Cecil Adams.. wonder how a thread on that would go?

Keith Hallgren and pens

a friend of mine (Feynn / Keith Hallgren) just told me that he might be in Vancouver at the end of the month to do some pen business.. does anyone know of any pen / antique shops in Vancouver? I certainly don't, really.. unless you count that big red flea market somewhere that I've seen.. maybe I'll look it up later when I'm more awake..

he also told me that the inventor of the karaoke machine never bothered to patent it.. hmm.. since it's easily a $10 billion-per-year business these days, you think the guy's kicking himself every day now?

we also had a bit of a general discussion about hockey.. that really reminds me that I should really read the sports section after too long NOT reading it.. but not now.. now is bedtime :)

Snoopy is cool.. love ya, John!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BILLY! Hope you have an awesome one; I've definitely enjoyed and loved our friendship! :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TRUDY! I've often wondered what's happened to you.. but I trust that God is keeping you safe wherever you happen to be.. have a great one! :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BAILIE! I've enjoyed getting to know you, and I hope you have a great one! :)

I just messaged someone else to talk.. and he says: "Swear to God, I was just thinking how I hadn't heard from you in a while." For some reason, that tripped my "humor wires," and I had a good laugh at that. So, John.. if you're reading this, you've made my day! :)

Sarah Moore's weirdness / Quiz Heaven stuff

Sarah Moore just told me that she wants to tell people that I'm from Nigeria.. for the record, I am NOT from Nigeria! I'm from Vancouver.. then again, this person is insane.. she likes vegemite.. that alone makes anyone at least half-insane in my books.. :P and no, she's not from Australia either.. so I really have NO idea why she likes the stuff..

Diversions while being in the zone

had a rather long meeting yesterday.. got home at 5:15 PM with a lot of stuff yet to do (updating journal, prepping 37 birthday cards with stickers / greetings / whatever, email, etc.) .. hence why no updates yesterday afternoon / evening / night.. (this is for all you eager freaks who are positively slavering for updates.. :P) but the meeting did go well, which was a good thing..

oh yes.. I should add that DF means David Fellowship..

and just for my sister (since she was complaining last night when I talked to her on MSN that she couldn't find her name anywhere on this site): STEPHANIE.. there, are you happy now? :P

don't you hate it when, just as you try to concentrate on doing something (in my case, updating journal and fielding all sorts of DF-related emails in between the other emails I get), the phone rings or something else happens to break your concentration? (I'm not necessarily talking about IM conversations here, though those can get a bit irritating at times.. use those for breaks / diversion, it's what I do :P) stinking phone calls.. I got four of 'em in a half hour or 45 minutes.. not even really about important stuff, either.. sheeeeeeesh..

yes, I *could* turn off Call Waiting and such.. don't think I'll do that for some time, though.. ah well.. luckily, nobody seems to be bugging me now.. (just watch.. I've let myself in for it now.. soon my mother will call to blather on about nothing, people will distract me with mindless IM conversations.. aiya!)

Church weirdness / Quiz Heaven stuff

I'm just a little tired from being at church longer than I expected. My clueless brother got 2 messages on his cell phone from me, one saying that I needed a ride home, and the other one saying that I didn't. (sent right after the first one) He gets my first message, and after we'd made plans.. gets the second one and then apparently decides that I don't need a ride after all. Sheeeeeeeesh..... at least I did get a ride home, and I got to spend some more time with the older kids of the church. (and I *did* finally learn how to tell Adam and Andrew apart, hehehe)

I need to sleep.. I have a meeting tomorrow. But what will I end up doing? Being on this computer at my brother's for another hour.. and it's 12:25 AM already. Yikes. Better kick myself off then.... see ya!

You are weird!
