Survey from my sister

My sister's survey.. she headlined it FART SURVEY, but it's not about farts!

1. What time did you get up?: Today? Around 12:40, but that was because I stayed up till 3 AM talking to Corey and doing random things on the interweb. Normally, I get up around 11 or earlier though. :P

3. Gold or Silver?: Silver!

4. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

5. What is your favorite TV show?: Not sure if I have a fave right now... random stuff is always good. ;)

7. Who would you hate to be stuck in a room with?: Certain people who make my life a living hell.

15. Favorite sandwich?: Cheddar, sausage, pickle, and jam? Man, my sister's really weird! :P As for myself, I'll eat almost anything.. comes from growing up in a Chinese household. ;) But I do like ham and cheese. (so pedestrian!)

16. Favorite Flower?: Hahaha, I like my sister's answer! I'd say roses, too. (I don't think for myself :P)

17. If you could go anywhere in the world on a vacation, where would it be?: Someplace in Europe.. with culture, romance, and adventure!

18. What color is your bathroom?: Beige.

19. Favorite brand of clothing?: I'm not brand-conscious at all. :P

20. Where would you retire to?: I like Spoz's answer he gave once.. on a trippy little Jamaican island with plenty of people and stuff to do!

21. Favorite day of the week?: Fridays and Saturdays.

22. What did you do for your last birthday?: Met Yazmine at City Square mall, met a few of my friends at Cactus Club, and then went to Dragon Ball for bubble tea later on. Fun times! :D

23. Where were you born?: Vancouver General Hospital.

24. Favorite sport to watch?: Hockey, I guess. Maybe some baseball, too.

27. What fabric detergent do you use?: Don't have any.

28. Coke or Pepsi?: Pepsi.. I like my sister's answer. ("Pepsi.. the Mormon empire is rich enough. Not that Pepsi, Inc. isn't.") Although I still remember Kevin Cromie and his "four bottles of Coke a day" habit... :D

29. Are you a morning person or a night owl?: Probably night owl.. I hate getting up and being extremely cheerful in the mornings. :P

30. Do you have any pets?: "Animals shouldn't be domesticated. They should be eaten! Mmmm." was my sister's answer. No, I don't have any since both my siblings are really allergic to fur and dander.. besides, most apartments here won't let you have pets. There go my dreams of being a 200-pet owner. :P

Apparent phone calls and Listology

apparently, Candy tried to call me last night to talk..
I didn't get her private messages about it till just now..
of course, I had my Call Block defense on as per usual..
getting phone calls post-midnight is not my favorite thing!
she suggested Sunday.. not good because of grad banquet..
I'll only be home on Monday, Thursday, and Friday nights..
grad banquet, farewell BBQ, and the meeting with Yazmine..
hopefully, we shall get a chance to talk sometime soon!

I'd tease her or something about being up at 3 AM her time..
but I was up til 3 AM my time talking to Corey about food..
well, that and prank calls / websites / his being alive..
so I really have no room to talk about that kind of thing ;)
Brenda says there's a BBQ on Monday, Aug. 2 at Memorial Park in lieu of an actual program on Friday..
let's see if I can actually get there, first of all..
starts at 11, so that would be the perfect excuse for me!

here's a link to relieve some boredom: Listology site ;)
lists of books, movies, TV shows, and music.. just my thing!
Spoz would probably say it was the perfect one for me ;)
I was telling Jon about it last week, and he thought I said "astrology".. no, of course not!
(we don't really believe in that stuff at all, thank you ever so much for asking!)
if I could get more into the site than just one page before contending with illegal operations, that'd be cool.. ;)
as it is, the site looks like a list repository.. yay!

Parisienne fart lever denial and watergun play

Eric denies that there's a farting mechanism in the car..
it may be true that I have all the controls he does..
(save the ones for driving and related things that he has)
but I *know* there is one.. hey, I gotta love him lots! ;)

the guys were playing with a watergun downstairs.. fun!
Alan had shorts with a secret message on them that's visible only when wet, so that got some water..
Sean didn't mind if his pants were wet, but definitely did when it came to his underwear being wet.. go figure..
Sabrina and Sheena were playing a Jenga-like game..
Citrus said Danielle's at home since her parents are over..

Jen was back with an entire album full of Kenya pictures..
rhinos, Masai warriors, cheetahs, flamingos, giraffes..
all the pictures looked so good.. sunset at 7 especially..
I told her that Jon would be so dark after Creation Fest..
she'll bring the album on Sunday.. hope Jon's there, haha!
Daniel and Nathan worked out that they're directly related to Tracy now, since she is Michelle's cousin..
got home early, but that's perfectly all right with me!

Eric wants me to pay him $500 for a ride to church! / Quizzes

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CONNIE.. I hope you have a really good one today! :) It's been great knowing you at church.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JENNY.. I hope you have a good one today! :) I have been encouraged by knowing you.

Random Thoughts of the Day

just called Eric, and he can give me a ride for $500..
I think that price is a little high, but it's all good..
I'll never see an overall average of $10 in Tri-Peaks..
haven't seen Corey online in days.. I miss the dude!
should take a shower and then wear my Rialto cologne..
the Corona Extra hat is a must-have accessory, haha..
Spoz thinks I'm a trainspotter, so very awesome!
now I wish someone would talk to me on the phone again..
methinks I'm feeling certain emotions once more.. help!
Michael knows my brain's weird.. Romanovs and criminals..
Eric is one person on my shortlist for laughter wires!

You are half a pint of bitter. I am thirsty... maybe we should get together sometime.

Five random thoughts, and the Friday Five on favorite music

1. Empty Road lyrics.. for some reason, it just speaks to me today.

2. I had a highly disturbing dream involving people I'm close to.. no details here or anywhere else, because my subconscious is majorly screwed up! :P

3. Must wear Rialto cologne and Corona hat today when I go out.. it's so stinking hot!

4. Speaking of going out, I must call Eric sometime this afternoon.. it'll be fun with him and everyone else around! ;)

5. I'm a trainspotter, and proud of it! (yes, I wish I could talk to Spoz again.. hahahaha!)

Friday Five... I'm warning you now of multiple pop-ups when you view the lyrics sites! (don't say I didn't, hahaha!)

1. Who was your favorite band / musician when you were younger?: Can't decide between Our Lady Peace and the Matthew Good Band.. of course, now Matt's gone solo. :D

2. Why?: I thought both Raine Maida and Matt Good were cute, plus the songs seemed to speak to me.

3. Are they still your favorite / one of your favorites?:

Haven't heard anything of OLP in a few years, but then that may be because I don't keep up with most music news for some reason. I don't listen to them as much anymore, no.

As for Matthew Good, he's a local artist, so I hear a bunch more about him. Yes, he's still one of my favorites.. just look at my music! :D

4. What is your favorite song of theirs?: OLP's Clumsy, and MGB's Indestructible.

5. Are there any specific lyrics you hold dear?: OLP's Automatic Flowers, and MGB's Apparitions.

TATTOO / How country I am, my Spanish name, name meaning, and more!

Man, this song speaks to me... (1/30/08)

Artist: Jordan Sparks
Song: Tattoo

Oh, oh, oh
No matter what you say about love
I keep coming back for more
Keep my hand in the fire
Sooner or later, I'll get what I'm asking for

No matter what you say about life
I learn every time I bleed
That truth is a stranger
Soul is in danger, I gotta let my spirit be free

To admit that I'm wrong
And then change my mind
Sorry, but I have to move on
And leave you behind

I can't waste time, so give it a moment
I realize, nothing's broken
No need to worry 'bout everything I've done
Live every second like it was my last one
Don't look back at a new direction
I loved you once, needed protection
You're still a part of everything I do
You're on my heart just like a tattoo

(Just like a tattoo, I'll always have you
I'll always have you, I'll always have you)

I'm sick of playing all of these games
It's not about taking sides
When I looked in the mirror, didn't deliver
It hurt enough to think that I could

Stop, admit that I'm wrong
And then change my mind
Sorry, but I gotta be strong
And leave you behind

(Just like a tattoo, I'll always have you
I'll always have you)

If I live every moment
Won't change any moment
Still a part of me and you
I will never regret you
Still, the memory of you
Marks everything I do

[Chorus x2]
Just like a tattoo
I'll always have you

I know... it's from AMERICAN IDOL (yuck), but still. :P

Look at expiry dates when grocery shopping!

just went grocery shopping: look at expiry dates!
bought some Renee's Gourmet curry dip, but found out that it expires tomorrow.. none of that for me..
that also cancelled out the Tostito's chips I bought..
did a good job in some other cases, like the flaxseed and Notthingham loaves of bread I saw..
I swear, food should come with clearly labelled expiry dates like the ones on bread and milk..
if it did, I'm telling you that would solve my problems!
no, I touch nothing that expires within a day.. and that is something that goes for stuff I already have!

bought some Campbell's Soup that looked good.. tomato with cheese and portobello mushroom ravioli..
would have bought some Primo's beef barley, but ran into the Chunky Soup problem.. that of pop-up tops..
also got some maple walnut ice cream.. haven't had it for a long time, so why not if it was on sale?

in other news, it's going to get up to 32° today..
I think I'll stay in today and call Eric and Yazmine..
if I told Spoz this, he'd say I was a wimp heat-wise..
yeah, I know it gets up to 44° in Adelaide..
at that temp, I'd be staying by some air-con all the time!

Grace Tang and her "special" boyfriend

Just went out for some steak at Boston Pizza.. yes, it's the same as Boston's for you American people. :P It was a good experience as usual.. just chilling at the restaurant, eating something as a treat to myself, listening to the music, and reading the events in the newspaper. :D

While waiting for the bus afterwards, I saw my old high school friend Grace Tang. She was one of the "special kids," but I never held that against her or any of the other ones. (I was viewed as kinda close to that myself, actually.. don't know if I was or am actually that, though) At high school, I think we got along okay.. it wasn't like she was one of those other people always out to get me or anything like that! We've seen each other occasionally over the years since, most often at bus stops, and always said hi.

I said hi to her at the bus stop, and noticed that she was with another "special" dude. Asked her what she was doing these days, and she said "Nothing." Her boyfriend said something about "no, not doing anything" to me, and I left it at that. (uh, you two were engaging in PDA at the bus stop... :P) For some reason, that encounter made me feel really old. (as well as wishing certain things would happen, but they won't.. so never mind that! :P) It got me to thinking: Yikes! I graduated ten years ago, and should be doing something more with this life.. but can't think of anything right now to be doing, as bad as that sounds. :P Maybe in the future...

I don't remember feeling particularly old at Daniel and Michelle's wedding a few weeks ago, nor do I think I will at Vernon and Sarah's next week. (Michelle and Sarah are both younger than me, but Vernon and Daniel are both a year older than I am) But if I go to Kenneth and Daisy's in late September, then yes.. I think I'll feel like an oldster. Kenneth is four years younger than me, and Daisy is a year younger than that. I've known them forever from church, and it seems quirky to have both the bride and groom younger than you at a wedding.. but I'm still happy for them! Of course, this is only the start of that kind of thing... although I don't think anyone else in my brother's age group at church will get married anytime soon. (then again, you never know...)

Now I'm listening to Duran Duran's Greatest Hits on CD.. it's not like I can get really nostalgic for that era, right? Still, though.. it fits my present mood. I remember having my friend Jennifer Fung's sisters Maggie and Angie drive us home from Chinese School, with the 80's music (including Duran Duran) blasting out of the car radio. Man, those were the days... I wonder whatever happened to those people, actually! (time to do a Google search, perhaps?) So yes, I'm feeling nostalgic and old.. definitely a quirky combo, if I do say so myself. :D

Maybe I need to hang around some little kids to feel younger, even if I *am* kinda young at heart anyhow! This weekend, maybe... Ian, Janis, Alina, and others! :)

Andre found this site! / Quizzes

I'm certainly relieved now, as I saw a short entry earlier from Michael.. I think I'll yell at him later :P
I think I'll sleep much better tonight.. good prospect..
also, Andre was looking up "hamsterette" on the Net..
he found this site and made a comment on it.. neat!
definitely wish I could talk to Spoz more often here..
but MSN doesn't work, and I almost never get on ICQ..
too bad Corey's not on now, either.. maybe tomorrow..
craving steak, so perhaps I'll go to BP for some..
expensive treats, I know.. but it's part of what I do..
I'll remember to buy Canada stickers for Nathan..
says I'm so very kind.. of course I am to my friends! ;)

You're pretty darn normal. Where did I meet you again????

Concern about Michael / Quizzes

didn't get much sleep last night, as I was concerned about Michael.. I heard he'd gone missing..
no details here, but I seriously hope things are okay..
right now, I'm playing Tri-Peaks.. hope I don't delete it if I get too frustrated with the game!
I've done that before, and downloaded other versions off the Net.. but now the links are all kaput..

had to get this one from BigDaiv, so none of that now..
let's just say that when I get frustrated with it, I'd feel the same way about it as Spoz does about winter ;)
nothing much else to report from here.. very boring day..
although Alan can read this if he wants.. I don't care!

"You just tried to kill me with raw meat bacteria!"

joked to Eric H. that he was trying to kill me with raw meat bacteria last night at dinner..
we're good friends, so of course he wouldn't do that..
raw chopsticks and spicy lamb shoulder.. not good!
Eric M. playfully / affectionately hit me with the stuffed chicken doll at Nathan's.. thanks, dude!
Jon didn't think he had food poisoning from the nasi goreng or the fermented soybeans at Banana Leaf..
good thing, as I remember when he threw up in an empty box at the bookstore in Lansdowne Mall..
(actually, Steph told me about it.. kinda funny, but not)

just got up from an almost five-hour nap.. mmm, sleep..
reminds me of Vivian saying Norman was gross for taking one of those in a long-ago conversation..
I guess when you need sleep, it can't be all bad..
dreamed of grocery shopping, of all things.. nice work!
now, should he call me again? not if he has bills to pay out the wazoo.. yes, I'm a cheap Asian ;)
guess I'll figure that out sometime later.. my own thoughts should be kept to myself, I've learned..
ah well, it was a great time with friends this weekend..
I'll have to make Friday plans with Eric M. since Jon's at Creation Fest.. that won't be so bad at all ;)
Richmond Crew jokes, Corona hat, singing songs.. fun times!

what kind of cookie are you?


You are a spicy individual and people appreciate your artistic flair. You have discriminating taste: when it comes to making friends, you're very choosy. (Or is that chewsy?)

Nathan's Gollum songs are horrible!

we talked about a lot of things at the restaurant.. very good!
it was great seeing Eric H. again, and we made plans to hang out..
a farewell party for Jon is indeed a must.. he'll have lots ;)
discussed Asian service, movies, work, plans, food, the bill, etc.
now we're back at Nathan's eating ice cream cake and talking..
Eric M. can't eat the cake, so he's playing guitar instead..
Nathan is singing songs Gollum-style.. horrible! ;)
the TV show we're watching is on polygamy / plural marriage..
kinda interesting, but you don't want to get into that stuff!

All churched-out

talked to Maxine, Lauren, Jeff, Dave, Nate, and others today..
bantered with Dawn, Alan, Jon, Eric M., and everyone else..
Chrystal thinks I have a good memory, as well.. "churched-out!"
restaurant holidays we don't know about, video games, etc.
we're going to eat soon, and hang with Eric H. finally.. yay!

Random Links and Cruft

Corey told me about Random Links.. he says I can click on that all day..
instead of talking his or anyone's ear off on the phone?!
I don't know that it will happen, but we shall see..
here's a link to the organic microbrewed green tea root beer stuff..
Jeremy's blog is really funny.. "cruft" is a made-up word..
Dave's blog also has a new look to it.. must read it soon!

Jon says I'm not really invited to the Afghan Horseman..
man, I tell you that I have one NICE brother.. NOT!
also says Sean should have more cultural sensitivity..
too right, even if he's not heard of Afghani food before..
been having a good time talking to people, though..
and it's all that matters for now.. humor rocks! :)
sleepy bo bo calls for me.. phew, it's warm..
