What happened tonight with Erik..

1. Since one of the Awana secretary's kids (William) and a secretary-in-training (Jessica) were bored during Handbook Time, I decided to let them write "Merry Christmas" on the cards I'd be sending out. To those who will be getting cards from me, that's the explanation for the other handwriting on them.. I had to give William and Jessica *something* to do! :)

2. I decided not to go to the Awana dinner after all.. maybe I should have, but didn't really feel like it.

3. One of the Awana kids gave me a nickname of sorts. This was the conversation:

Better than MISTER or PIECE OF POO, which he has called me in the past!

Me: Hi, Johnson!
Johnson: You're wild!
Me: Why?
Johnson: Because you're old!
Me: Really?
Johnson: Yeah, you're a chicken!
Me: ....
Johnson: You don't have to walk!
Me: Uh, thanks, Johnson.. I'll remember that.

4. I've just received some shocking news about a friend, but am calming down now. I'm talking about it with him, which helps. :)

Linkage to other thoughts.

Number / angst flavor quizzes

You Are the Helper


You always put on a happy face and try to help those around you.

You're incredibly empathetic and care about everyone you know.

Able to see the good in others, you're thoughtful, warm, and sincere.

You connect with people who are charming and charismatic.

What number are you?

My angst tastes like...
black licorice
Black Licorice

Find your angst's flavor

Unique and difficult to place, your angst finds its source in something you keep hidden. You have something serious and possibly traumatic, but you try to hide it from everyone and just tell them to ignore you when you seem troubled, that everything is really OK. You might think that you have good reasons for not telling people, and some of them may in fact be true, but most likely a lifetime of keeping your secrets has led to a resolution fortified by rationalization that nobody else can shake simply because you never give them a chance. Ask yourself if it would really be that horrible to open up to others; nobody says you have to do it all at once, even. But you should at least try getting out of your shell a little. It is not healthy to internalize everything and conceal it. Anyway, if people really care for you, and they probably do, then they'll be loving and supportive regardless of any reason to the contrary. Hmm.. I guess I still have work to do on opening up to some people. But it's so hard to trust 'em these days....

I represent the deadly sin of ENVY.. who knew?!

Which deadly sin do you represent? (Angel Sanctuary Pics)

brought to you by Quizilla

Hmm... this explains a bit about me. Possibly more than you wanted to know, but that's the luck of the draw! ;)


Dubious two-year anniversary

As I was just telling Dave, today is the two-year anniversary of the time that I almost got run over or killed at #3 Rd. / Westminster Highway. I definitely remember the date very well.. it was kinda dark outside that evening, but I decided to buy some ice cream and stuff at Save-On Foods since I had people coming over here later that night for prayer meeting. On my way back from the store, some idiot in a white car could not wait a few seconds for me to cross the road on my OWN right-of-way! (and yes, I *did* look before crossing the road like usual, thanks very much :P)

I was crossing the crosswalk on my green light, when suddenly a car turned and stopped right in front of me! True, it was dark and rainy out, and they may not have seen me even though I was in the middle of the crosswalk at the time, but still! That was very shocking. Told my friend Yazmine about it all later on, and she said that someone was protecting me. I'd damn well hope so! When I told my brother about it after that, I told him not to tell our mother.. she would freak out. I so definitely didn't want that at all.

When Maxine, Anita, Tim, Mark, and Joe came over later, I definitely told them about it.. turns out that Anita also almost got hit by a car that day as she was driving! Believe me, we all said our prayers and thank-yous that night in spades!

Everything But The Girl: Missing / Quizzes

I was reminded of this song by something that someone said earlier to me tonight... ah, the memories!

Song: Missing
Artist: Everything But The Girl

2-I step off the train
I'm walking down your street again
And past your door, but you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
Now you've disappeared somewhere, like outer space
You've found some better place

1-And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

Could you be dead?
You always were two steps ahead, of everyone
We'd walk behind while you would run
I look up at your house
And I can almost hear you shout down to me
where I always used to be
(repeat 1)

Back on the train, I ask why did I come again?
Can I confess, I've been hanging round your old address?
And the years have proved
to offer, nothing since you've moved
You're long gone, but I can't move on
(rpt 1, 2, 1...)

Random laughter / Quizzes

No, it's not my "random cackling," as Eric M. likes to call it. :P

My computer's making random laughing noises at me, and it sounds like the Trillian laughing noise whenever someone puts LOL or :'D or X'D into the message field. But nobody has!

I know it's not the Jokeworld Biz thing again, though... kinda scary, but then kinda not. Weird quirkiness, I guess....

I was also going to go out and get David's birthday card, and mail Darren's. But it's going to get dark soon, and I just missed a bus.. maybe I'll do it tomorrow.

Black notebooks, Kiss-O-Poly, and more free books

Just got back from doing some shopping and having lunch at Boston Pizza. (we're not going to get into how Corey thinks I'm obsessed with certain secondary sex characteristics here!)

Bought a fuzzy black notebook and a few bookmarks for Michael.. I do think he'll like them. I don't mind spending the money on him, as he's been a very good friend to me. He'll send me a dragon along with a Christmas card, and we think that's a fair trade. :D

Saw a Kiss-O-Poly game, which made me think of Steve.. reminds me, I still haven't gotten around to his stories. Whoops, I'll read them later on.. I'm sure they're good. :D

Got another free book in the mail yesterday (The Road To Reality), from a Christian website that I was checking out a couple of weeks ago. With all these books that I'm accumulating, I don't think I'll have time to read them! *laugh* But books are SO definitely very good company / escape! Why do you think I have so many? ;)

Trillian Pro and viruses

Tonight has not been a good night, computer-wise. Corey messaged me with some more non-viewable icons, which he insisted I should be able to see. I couldn't see them, so he sent me a copy of Trillian Pro. He also sent me a link to download WinRAR, which is better than WinZip. Trillian Pro had a lot of viruses, even though he runs updated anti-virus software all the time on his computer and hadn't noticed a problem. Of course I believe him. :) Running my own virus scans and doing what he told me to do ultimately didn't work.. so to make a long story short, I'm starting anew with the regular version of Trillian. It doesn't really matter that I can't see his icons... ;)

Green Village

Didn't really talk to many people today, even if a bunch of us went to Green Village for lunch, where the waiter suggested half our meal for us. Eric never told me that he had a meeting afterwards, but things managed to work out relatively well. Erin said her grandma's doing much better, but of course will be in the hospital for a long time to come. Nathan said that he dipped his beef jerky in chocolate milk.. that is definitely something my brother would do! Dylan told Jen that he was the only Republican at his work, and explained his reasoning.. Jen, Danielle, and I agreed that it was good to hear it from his perspective. Most of Canada is Democrat, but that's definitely not the case at Trinity! (it IS a Christian liberal arts university, after all...)

Went home and took a nap to refresh myself.. now, Corey's giving me a running commentary on his workout routine. Good times, for sure! (definitely since we've talked to each other for a LONG time.. at least I know he'll be there for me :P)
