Bitterness isn't conducive to healing / Quizzes

Dave reminded me that bitterness isn't conducive to healing..
I needed that.. he'll be gone for two weeks in Los Angeles..
taking a personal vacation for some time off is good..
Eric M. told me that he'd pray for our service tomorrow..
said hi, and shared a challenging message he needed to hear..
it was about loving the things of this world more than God..
a message that we all need a reminder about sometimes..
no idea what will happen tomorrow or in the weeks to come..
Rachel wanted to know what was up with my MSN name..
"did we lose the game against Anaheim already?!"
at the time, no.. but I see the final score was 2-1, Ducks..
told her what was going on with the church situation, as well..
so yes, I had a lot of discussion with those people..
I should really call Minli sometime and tell her, too..

I said hi to Eric H. and asked if he got my email..
he did indeed get it, and we discussed hockey..
told him a bit about this past Sunday, but not a whole lot..
doesn't need to know the whole rigmarole, I feel..
he's heard about it, and agrees that it's very upsetting..
might also be going to Missions Fest.. that'll be a good time..
at least I can talk to him when I see him.. very good thing!

the little kids are telling their own version of last week..
Julie said that Michelle told her the pastor got fired..
which is true in a way.. he's not coming back, for sure..
Hannah said she wrote it down in her diary to remember..
when I told Dianne, she thought that was kind of weird..
Dianne also thinks there are like a million kids.. not really!
(although I don't deny that it sounds like that sometimes)
I managed to score a half-franc coin.. it's not a dime!
reminds me of the time I snagged a Sackie last year..
I'd have to say that a Sackie is not a loonie, people..
unexpected coins are indeed the best treasures, haha..
ah well, guess we'll get through everything together!

I know how you feel. I just don't care.

which IT'S HAPPY BUNNY are you?

I wasn't going to take the site's Compatibility Test, because I don't have any intense relationships. Then I thought it would be interesting to compare results with my sister and a few other people. I'll see what happens if they take it.. should be neat.

Got results for my sister already. According to this: we're 72% similar, and 64% complimentary. Guess that's kind of a good thing.

The first Friday Five to grace this journal..


1. What does it say in the signature line of your emails?

My email gives me three options. I tend to change them up from time to time, but they currently are:

Option 1: "I am the Richmond Crew dragon hamsterette. Beware of my fiery breath, for it will incinerate you if I feel unfavorably disposed toward anything!"

Option 2: "Congratulations! You have received this email because you are most likely a friend of mine in good standing. If you feel that you've received this message in error, please contact me by phone so I can sort it all out."

Option 3: "This email has been brought to you by the letter L."

2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook? What was it? If you haven't graduated yet, what would you like your quote to be?

We didn't have a quote per se, but we did have a blurb. Mine was:

"Best known for: writing things that nobody understands! Thanks to all who have helped me. Yes, I am sorry that Bill Baarschers is mad at me. (thanks for this suggestion goes to someone who will remain nameless) JH, LB, DD, JS, JT, AP, etc. - Jesse Keetley is not my boyfriend! Rob Stajduhar - How are you? Like always, right? Tara and Tanya Close - how about we go fit Stewart Goumans in a garbage can one of these days, eh? Reisa Neal - Invite me to your wedding. 'Toot toot!' That's your fire engine! Ian Cullis - I am not going to miss the bus! Hi Jesse, Kevin Cromie, etc. Good luck, and may you follow your dreams! *** "

(as far as I can remember, "the person who shall remain nameless" was none other than Ken Moorhouse)

3. If you had vanity plates on your car, what would they read? If you already have them, what do they say?

If I drove and had a car, they would probably say FLAMI.

(yup, taking my Internet ID to the perils of the road and real life.. I'm so daring, hahaha)

4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say?

I've received three. I keep wanting to say that they're picture frames, but I know that's not right. Suffice to say that they're meant to be placed on a picture stand.. and if you get THAT, I'll give YOU a gift. :D

Gift 1: "Great is the Lord, and greatly is He to be praised. -- Psalm 145:3" (a gift from the people at PJ's when I was in the hospital for that operation in Gr. 9)

(it had a scene of birds flying over mountains, as well)

Gift 2: "Heavenly Father, Creator of the world, thank You for the quiet beauty of a single flower...

"for the soft caress of a fragrant breeze... for the heart's delight in a brightly painted butterfly.

"Thank You, Heavenly Father, for all the happy blessings You gave Your children when You created gardens. AMEN." (a high school grad gift from Auntie Bessy)

(this one had purple flowers and a yellow butterfly on it, as well)

Gift 3: " "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD. "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -- Jeremiah 29:11" (from Fidela for birthday #25)

(this one had pressed dried flowers, and several hand-drawn flowers too)

5. What would you like your epitaph to be?

Such a morbid question.. :P Um, I don't know. The only thing I can think of right now is: "Loved her friends and everyone else with the simple sweet grace given her by the Lord."

Emotional discussions

as I suspected, last night was very emotional..
we discussed / shared our feelings and thoughts..
I talked to Nathan, Fidela, Phil's mom, and Jackie..
lots of boxes for Pastor Glen's office, email change, etc.
got an email from Eric wanting to know what was up..
told him all the information that I had.. he thanked me..
wanted some more info.. I'll get on that when I'm home..
had a dentist appointment today, too..
need to floss more, brush better, get rid of cavity..
but maybe after I have some soup at White Spot..
yesterday, I thought Jon's apple looked like a sandwich..
a McDonald's hamburger on a sign looked like a bowl of soup..
yup, my brain's really working most of the time.. not! ;)

Aslan's comparisons are STUPID! / Quizzes

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JENNIFER.. I hope you have a really special one today! :) It was good knowing you at Kwantlen.

Aslan has really managed to annoy me and others..
he compared my "irritating" use of "yer" to Ebola..
my casual English is NOT as irritating as the deadly virus!
I don't care if he doesn't like it.. it's wrong on a lot of levels..
told me that he didn't like seeing it on his Internet..
there's a LOT of things from him that I don't like seeing..
but do *I* make a huge deal out of it? no, not really..
John says I should just not bother with the dweeb anymore..
someone says I should point out any mistake he makes..
extremely ripe possibilities there for both options..
needless to say, I don't think Ebola irritates him..
for my own sanity, I shall not talk to him for some time..
not MY fault his brain is totally non-functioning! ;)

hmm.. seems my Yahoo Messenger's had all it can take..
every time I start it now, it says I have 254 new messages..
I know the true number is probably way higher than that..
when I check it later, I'm sure I'll break the old record of 228...
never again, I swear.. that is, unless Graffiti defenestrates..
here's hoping like hell that doesn't happen at all..
and at least my toilet is fixed now.. so things are looking up!

I just took the Sesame Street Character Test, and this is what it had to say about me:

You are ELMO. You are cute, and everyone loves you. You are a best friend that no one takes the chance of losing. You don't like to hurt other people's feelings, but if you do, it's not intentional. Life is a breeze. You are witty and calm most of the time. Just keep clear of backstabbers, and you are worry free.

I also took the What Kind of Cat are You? test, and this is what it had to say about me:

The evidence is in, and you are undeniably the personality type of a:


You take good care of yourself and might be considered a bit vain, but that's okay, because you have good cause. You may pull back a bit at parties, but once you have found someone to talk to, you feel quite at home. Your friends would describe you as a very sweet person, with a gentle demeanor. You are affectionate and loyal to family and friends.

In high school, you were either the Homecoming Queen or King.

The Color Test

Being a sensible person, you prefer to research any situation before taking action. You don't trust anyone's opinion but your own. You handle your money carefully and accumulate it in small, but secure, increments.

Preferring a more casual appearance, you are more comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt than in a suit. You don't like overdressing for any occasion, although you never look scruffy.

Variety is the spice of life! You are comfortable in any crowd or situation, and always come away with new friends.

You are a very practical person. It's more important to you that the things you own are useful, rather than nice to look at.

A good listener. You are comfortable allowing others to take the spotlight and share their adventures. You are protective about your friendship and ensure the best for your friends.

You are very strong-willed, even bordering on stubborn. You like to take care of yourself before helping others, although you will never let people down.

Congratulations, you sweetheart. You enjoy wild popularity because of your sweetness and your caring nature. Selfless and sensitive, you care deeply about others and you worry sometimes about what others think about you. But people everywhere love you, so that's okay.

Congratulations! You're a fuzzy navel!!

Bouncing emails / Quizzes

turns out I spoke too soon about nothing bouncing..
came back to find that at least a few emails DID..
(I know I mistyped Dianne's address by accident..
but what's up with Kal, Maxine, Jenny, Jocelyn, and Henrik?)
and then my toilet decided not to flush at all..
damn inconvenient when you have to do "100-98" ;)
especially when the results are evident.. unreliable things..
oh well, what to do about it anyhow? no idea, dude..
let's hope things get better tomorrow tout de suite!

brought to you by Quizilla

Just took a quiz that asks you how much you talk to yourself. Like I really needed a quiz to tell me that.. nice to have the confirmation, though. ;)

Congratulations, you hit a Blue Streak! (... In other words, you sometimes talk a "blue streak" to yourself, when chances allow)

Does having this "quirk" mean you're abnormal? Does it mean you're an oddball? Does it mean you're going mad?

Actually, we (at Quiz Stop) think it means you have plenty to talk about, but not always someone around to whom you can speak.

Perhaps you're just bursting with emotion, imagination, or the need to communicate. (As a child, you probably talked to an imaginary playmate.)

Under the right circumstances, talking to yourself can be a delightful way to release mental "steam" and to confide in a friend (namely, yourself). As long as you allow room for other friends to join in!

Think about it.

Talk it over with yourself.
