First successful craniopagus separation on Primetime

Just watched Primetime, and the medical story was on the first successful craniopagus separation; it was done on Lithuanian twins who were joined at the head. (their brains were intertwined two inches deep.. not merely touching each other, as the doctors had first thought) Quite the risky delicate operation to get them separated.. amazingly, they suffered no brain damage.. though their skulls had to be reconstructed in Dallas after their bodies rejected the artificial skulls done for them in Moscow. They're happy and healthy at sixteen now, which is great! These stories are pretty darned good.. and no, definitely NOT because they're about twins. :P

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESTER! It's been good getting to know you on the UB.. we've only talked once on AIM, but I hope we can talk more! Have a good one! :)

Net reconnecting itself

When I got up today, I found that the Net had reconnected itself.. and yes, I am positively sure I'd DISconnected it yesterday when I went to sleep! Thought I'd changed the settings some time ago to NOT do that.. very annoying if left on overnight. Missed out on potential good conversation, too.. so if you were wondering where I was all night, I was sleeping and the Net decided to reconnect itself completely unbeknownst to me. That is all.

Oh, and my favorite kid better like the Juicy Fruit gum I bought for him this week! (since he only apparently likes Juicy Fruit now, and not my usual Excel gum) And no, I don't believe him when he says his Chinese middle name is "Boobie".. oh, definitely not!

Nobody online, jabronies!

Why is there nobody online now? I'm still awake and slightly buzzing off having been out with a whole bunch of my friends just now at Red Robin's, and whatever caffeine is contained in a grape Crush and two glasses of root beer. I don't think I could go to sleep right now almost immediately after I get home, in any event. Oh well.. at least I had a good time out! (and of course, given my luck.. people will start to come online when I'm about ready to pack it in.. woohoo) Probably going to bed earlier is a good thing, too. It's the old question of staying up even later or actually going to bed at a halfway decent hour.. guess which wins most of the time? :P

Just fielded email from Ice Wolf: "BTW, read your last blog entry.. what's a jabronie?" A jabronie (for those of you not familiar with the term) is a word used in the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment, formerly the WWF, until the folks at the World Wildlife Fund got too tired of the confusion) I think it was used mainly at first by this one dude calling himself "The Rock," to mean anyone who he perceived as a loser. If I'm wrong, I'm sure you can ask my brother for further details!

Don't tell freezing, irritated people to shut up! / Damn you, killer snow!

Just heard that the low tonight is -5 C / 23 F.. and there might be flurries in the Lower Mainland tomorrow. It was already cold enough yesterday night at 9:30 standing around outside the restaurant. Like I said to my brother, I can only hope we DON'T stand around outside post-11 PM tonight trying to figure out where we're going. Hopefully, we'll already have it all figured out by then (and inside the church, too). I don't really mind a whole bunch of standing around and making plans (my sister absolutely HATES it.. but I generally have no sympathy for her around this area.. live with it, I say), but if it's absolutely freezing and such.. just GO with something already! It matters not to me if it's hanging at someone's house, or going out to eat at BP.. just decide so I don't have to freeze in the cold! (and don't tell me to shut up.. you don't tell freezing, irritated people that!)

I also hope the flurries will remain just that.. or else my mobility is going to be even more impaired than usual. Though I suppose I'm lucky that we haven't had any snow at all so far this winter.. and it's just about spring, too. At least nobody has had to commiserate with me about the snow, or put up with the pissing and moaning I do every year. ("DAMN YOU, KILLER SNOW!!!".. that was quite amusing last winter) But still.. I bloody well hope the flurries keep themselves to a bare minimum down here.. it can snow all it likes up at Whistler / Blackcomb. Just not down here, please God..

Some more of my pet peeves!

Reposted in LJ / GJ on March 10, 2006.


1. Drawing on myself with a pen when I write stuff down! Crap.. I *hate* it when I do this because you'd think I was old enough now to NOT do this. But no, I still do.. it definitely doesn't make me look smooth and graceful, either!

2. Leaving my pens uncapped for longer than a very short time when I'm not using them. The ink will progressively dry out, dammit! why can't people understand that? Then again, I inadvertently do this myself, and HATE it when I do...

3. Rain on my grocery bags. Yes, I know.. it's just RAIN on plastic bags that'll DRY, but for some reason it reminds me of frozen fish and that kind of thing in my mother's shopping purchases from the Chinese markets and such. Not the greatest to have to encounter whilst helping her put groceries away... ick!

4. When people refer to me as a cripple! Don't know that this is such a weird one, but I certainly am NOT a cripple, let me assure you. The next jabronie that tries that trick will get a dagger-like stare that I wish could KILL! I *can* hear what you say, you know! It's too bad I can't do any fancy moves and leave them as gibbering puddles of goo on the ground, because that would be SO massively cool. ;)

5. My mother calling me when it's too late to call anyone else to block that voice outta my head! Like last Friday, she called me at 12:15 AM! Silly me, I didn't have the Call Block on since I figured no one would call me... WRONG! She has some pretty weak excuses for that too.. live and learn to use the Call Block, no matter what time it is when I get home from being out! :D

6. Leaving the Net on all night. Yes, I just did this AGAIN.. sure, it's inadvertent.. but can't I at least make sure I disconnect before going to bed, no matter how tired I am or what time it is? Ack.. if you're not physically at the computer to waste your Internet hours, what good is it? ;)

7. Typos!!! Yes, I know they happen to everyone, but I hate 'em regardless. Somehow, they don't present me at my best for some reason. That's why I'll edit things forevermore if they can be edited, to get rid of them!

8. Any kind of mark or fairly major crease on the lined paper I buy. I used to white out the marks, but not anymore for some reason. They bug me because them the paper isn't as perfect as it could be. I know not all sheets of paper are perfect, but they still bug me!

9. My dodgy-looking handwriting. Those of you who have seen my handwriting know what I'm talking about.. it's definitely not perfect, and looks messy / weird to boot. I just don't like it, so the computer medium works out great for me. But I still keep an offline journal in binders.. go figure.. :P

10. Bad spelling and grammar, especially from people who should know better and who have no excuses like ESL / dyslexia. No explanation needed for this one. :D

Blur singles and bombing

The new Blur single for North America is called Crazy Beat.. I heard the song today, and it sounds suitably rocking. However, I hear that the Australian / European single is called Don't Bomb if You're the Bomb.. the title amuses me in some REALLY wacked-out type of ways, as it reminds me of SO many Richmond Crew jokes.. I'll probably laugh every time someone mentions the song. (and for those of you uninitiated in the world of the Richmond Crew and how it was a few years ago.. believe me, you're WAY better off not asking! :P)

Phone musings and listening to music on repeat

Let's see.. what to say here? I'm not quite sure. Had a few ideas, but my brain did me the inconvenience of forgetting them all once I set foot in my brother's house. Thanks a lot, brain. :P

Although we're having another family dinner in a couple hours at some golf country club-type place.. that ought to be interesting. Now, for a whole bunch of listening to the Newsboys' Million Pieces (Kissin' Your Cares Goodbye).. my brother wonders why I don't change the music and instead listen to the same thing over and over on repeat. Eh.. I don't hear the songs enough. ;)

Oh, and here's another thing. My mother wondered what happened to my phone the last few days.. *70 does indeed work, for which I'm happy! She thought I'd been kidnapped or worse if my phone had a busy signal all the time (or that I'd cancelled Call Waiting).. hahahaha, no.. definitely not the case! :P

I just remembered: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, UNCLE RICHARD.. you've definitely been a good person in my life! Have a good one! :)

Online Life Has Not Been Good This Week!

This has NOT been a good week as far as things related to this computer and online life have been concerned:

1. that idiot who wanted me to call Maryland for her (um.. heck, no! not without a good reason, which she obviously didn't have.. and even then, probably not!)
2. my computer freezing when I wanted to open MS Excel documents out of the documents menu, instead of MS Excel out of the programs menu (I cleared out a bunch of crap on the machine -- something I should have done a LONG time ago -- and everything was copacetic again; it worked as it should, in other words)
3. that moron who got all worked up over my mild proprietary reaction to his multiple birthdays (hey, those threads are MY baby.. and NO one messes around with those things and gets away with it!)
4. that Pit thread started by the moron (though I'm obviously in the right on this one.. and no, I'm NOT being smug :P)
5. and now.. it turns out that I have at least 35 pieces of unsolicited email from crop up in my inbox, all within the space of seemingly a minute! At least I can unsubscribe from it all in one place.. hopefully it works. I am NOT amused.. if this is connected to the moron and that fiasco, I swear I will KILL.. never mind that I don't know where he lives (lucky for him) or anything else.. blunt-force trauma objects, anyone? ;) (accursed unsolicited email / spam..)

Hopefully, nothing else happens.. and things will get better! To those who have helped me try to gain some modicum of sanity, thanks a lot! (Yazmine, Spoz, G, Corey, dantheman, Clayton, Greg, Steve Wright, Buck, erl, Nick, Patrick, lel, Cerowyn, Ice Wolf, TLD, Kody, Ben [whatami], Cartooniverse, supporters of me in the Pit thread, people I'll talk to in future about this, anyone I may have missed, etc...) Love you all.. :) (and no, the list isn't in any particular order..)

Adopting Kody

I really should adopt Kody.. when he heard I was from Vancouver, he wanted me to adopt him straight away, as he loves this city and can't wait to be back here ASAP. (hahaha) I'm not sure if I responded to that one or not, so if he's reading this.. how about I adopt you right now? :D (and even if he's not, I'll do so anyhow.. coz I'm just nice like that)

Birthday Thread Pitting?! / Emails with no subject line

Well, what do you know.. Mr. "But-I-Was-Only-Making-A-Joooooooooke...." Whiner has seen fit to start a Pit thread on me in response to my failing to appreciate his "humor." I heard about this a few hours ago from Patrick, and only had time to go check it out now. Other people who have IMed me in those few hours have said that the thread is turning into a "reverse pile-on" (in that he didn't get much support for his position), and that it isn't much of a Pit thread as those things go. (the worst have been extremely vitriolic with lots of swearing and expletives) Upon reading it (I'm sure as heck not going to POST in it), it seems that people are taking him to task for not apologizing to me and saying that I overreacted (when he's the one who did so).. and also for not recognizing that his idea of a joke fell very flat. (plus other things which I'm sure you can see in the thread if you choose to read it.. not much swearing in it if you don't like that kind of thing)

In other news, I got an apparent email from my dad (of all the people) with no subject line. Normally, I'd delete emails with no subject line.. but since my dad's name was listed as the sender, I didn't. Turned out to be my mother asking what was wrong with my phone because she tried to call me, but got a busy signal. I'm very glad to have this evidence that disabling Call Waiting for the duration of a phone call (or in this case, going on the Net on a dialup connection for a lengthy period of time) works.. MWAHAHAHAHA.. In the email, she said to call her. Nah.. if you already emailed, just put the info you were going to call me about IN the email! (and next time, title the thing.. that way, I don't have to call you just to tell you that, and be bothered by the call) Next time, I'll delete the email with no subject.. I don't trust those things at all anymore. Put a subject in your emails, people! (I've been known to put joke subject lines in my emails in the past when I couldn't think of one that reflected the true contents of the email, but even that's better than NO subject at all!)

Vancouver #3 in quality of life! (and #1 in alien abductions...)

Okay, I know she doesn't read this blog.. but I have to say it anyhow: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LILLIAN!!! (my cousin, who I see only a few times a year, even though we live in the same city.. in fact, every time I see her, it's related to our grandma somehow)

And this just in.. Vancouver is #3 in world cities rated as to quality of life. That's very good news.. although coupled with the news I read a few months ago that we were #1 in alien abductions (if there are such things; personally, I don't think they are), I don't know if those two things can co-exist happily. ;)

Life Savers Christmas Storybooks in March?! / Identical Twin Sisters Reunited

I was just at London Drugs, and I noticed that they were still selling those Life Savers Christmas Storybooks.. it's now March (I know, I can't believe it either), and they STILL have some of those things hanging around store shelves? We've had Valentine's Day, and by all appearances, Easter is just around the corner.. and they have Christmas stuff into March? Granted, it wasn't a big display of candy (I'd be worried if it were), but that was certainly.. interesting.

Just saw this very interesting story about two women who found out through a fluke that they were each other's identical twin sisters. One of them was at a party, and someone else at the party couldn't stop staring / gawking at her: "Oh my God.. you look SOOOO much like my friend Adriana!" The two were both from Mexico, had been adopted, and shared the same birthday. Definitely not mere coincidence. They had their first contact electronically a while ago; one was raised on the Lower West Side, and the other in Manhattan. Very interesting stuff.

March SDMB Birthdays Thread

The March SDMB birthdays thread is really bugging me. Yes, I know I started it.. but look at the post where I lay out all the evidence to show that a certain poster had multiple birthdays. Then look at his post in response to me, and the subsequent hijack that's scattered over the thread. Can you believe the nerve of some people? (and I thought I wouldn't be as irritated over things as I was yesterday.. )

Anyone who knows me really well (which is hopefully most of you reading this) will recognize that birthdays are very important to me, and further know that I have a good sense of humor. I do NOT appreciate jokes like this at ALL, even if only over a message board. It may have been his definition of a harmless joke, but there are no real words to describe how I feel about the dude. I trust that people aren't trying to make a fool of me in the birthday threads.. but this person takes the cake. Telling me to lighten up / grow a sense of humor already indeed.. cheh! As if the fact it was meant to be a joke automatically should make me change my opinion and be "on side" with him.. I hardly think so. I was right, and he was most definitely in the wrong. His "sense of humor" needs a LOT of fine-tuning, methinks. Ah well, at least I don't know this person in real life.. or else I'd be sorely tempted to do a number on him. ;)

Like I was supposed to ignore his response to my evidence? Upon learning it was "just a harmless joke," was I just supposed to say: "HAHAHAHAHA, airdisc.. that was a REALLY funny joke, and I'm really glad you perpetrated it for five months" to him? Blast it, I just don't think so! In my not-so-humble opinion, he should at least have made an effort to apologize; whether he meant it or not. (hey, I can't tell.. 'tis only text on a message board, after all) But since he didn't, and continued with his disparaging comments, he obviously doesn't know how important this is to me and possibly to others too. These birthday threads are MY baby (after dreamer gave me the responsibility for them.. one I gladly took), dammit.. and you don't mess around with them, or try to play me for an utter fool, either! I have a good memory for these things, and I guarantee you that you WILL be found out. No, I won't act nice toward you, either.. SO many things I could say, but I won't. Aiya... I don't think I'll let this stop me from posting the threads up! Hahahahahaha.. you might bring me down for a while, but I'll not be out forever! :P

Oh, and the Canucks beat the Boston Bruins 6-4 tonight.. take that, Vernon. :P (true it's only the 7th time in 51 tries at the Fleet Center that they've done so.. but Marc Crawford must be happy)

Edit: just heard that the idiot got an official moderator warning.. woohoo! I'm definitely happy now! :)

now, to bed.. tomorrow, I will go shopping and spend more money I temporarily have :P

SPIN magazine and lists

Apparently, Spin magazine's April issue is totally devoted to lists.. I'll have to get that one, even though I don't generally buy a lot of magazines. Hey, it has 115 lists related to music / musicians.. what more could I ask for? (I know one of you will chime in here with "wot about ER and twins?".. but I don't expect that in a music magazine :P) I remember reading The Book of Lists and further editions of it many times when I was younger.. always something there for everyone. (random bits of historical trivia and such.. learned something new every time I read it) I think I'll read the magazine through first before letting my brother borrow it.. odds are, I won't see it again for a LONG time if I give it to him once I get it. (heck, he had certain CDs of mine for over a year and a half before finally giving them back to me.. and he still has some he borrowed about two years ago)

More irritable than usual... DAMN IT!

I'd just like to say that I'm more irritable than usual, so irritate me at your peril. Someone is currently finding that out for himself, in fact. Why am I so irritated? Mainly it's because I had to stay behind at church till 3:30 (meaning I got home at 4-ish).. should have taken the bus home, but (as is typical of her) my mom didn't spring the news on us that we had to stay behind till lunchtime. (and of course, this just happened to be the week where I didn't bring anything else to do, because I had NO idea this was going to happen) Not to mention the little digs at my self-esteem and all that stuff that my parents have managed to get in during the last 24+ hours that I had to stand them (not that I don't like / love my parents, but sometimes enough is enough).. I'm damn tired of that. (the thing is that they probably won't recognize it as a problem if I try to tell them how much it bugs me.. sigh..)

And my semi-usual rides back to Richmond have now decided to attend a Richmond church for the next couple months, at least.. but I don't blame them. It is much closer, and there may be other reasons as well. (I got verification of that fact from their daughter, who's a friend of mine.. certainly don't believe my mother 100%, although maybe I should if it's something like that)

Let's hope this coming week will be better all around.. because this Sunday has NOT been a good start to the week at all! No sirree, Bob..

Edit: Now I've just noticed that I managed to technically miss a day posting in this thing.. for the record, I'd like to note that I actually started writing this entry at 11:45 PM whilst trying to keep up an IM session and checking mail. (finished with technically two minutes left to spare) Then I managed to press the publish button instead of the submit button.. and I wondered why my post wasn't showing up! That wasted the two minutes I had left, and more besides. I blame it on not getting home early enough (on barely adequate sleep, though I did take a little nap later) to get a start on my usual stuff that needed doing. (If my siblings are reading this, I'm not blaming Mum directly.. just sorta indirectly :P However, if they aren't.. then I'm sure blaming her directly!)

I'd just like to take this opportunity to wish these people a happy birthday, belated (since I somehow managed to technically miss posting yesterday) or not:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SILVIA.. I enjoyed your friendship a few years ago, and wonder what's happened to you. Have a good one, wherever you are! :)
