Screwed-up sleep cycle, many quizzes

I think I've screwed up my sleep cycle. Going to bed at 5 AM and waking up at 2:30 PM might not be so bad if I didn't have a potentially busy day tomorrow starting at either 6 or 8:30 AM. But I had to check / update everything when I got home before I forgot. *thud*

Your Love Style is Agape

You are willing to sacrifice your world for your sweetie.
Except it doesn't really feel like sacrifice to you.
For you, nothing feels better than giving to the one you love.

You Scored 65% Correct

You are a solid child of the 80s.

Child's Unicorn
You are the guardian of Children's playtimes. You
are playful and fun-loving. You make sure that
the little ones stay safe while they play, and
play with them too. You are bouncy and bubbly,
and enjoy life immensely. You are a Child's Unicorn.

Kinda sounds right....

You are Fibers!

Fun and crazy at times. You are a warm fuzzy kind
of person. You run around getting things done,
but still find time for fun! You have so many
diverse interests that it is often hard to pin
you down to any one thing. People love your
friendly attitude and carefree ways. You often
brighten other people's days. But Fibers Beware!
Sometimes people don't take you seriously
because of your happy-go-lucky ways. Sometimes
you find yourself feeling left out of decision
making that could directly affect you.
Even though you like to be happy and cheerful,
make sure others know that you can also be
serious and in tune with reality.

Dream: Ty, Jeremy, public suicide, drawing on walls, cake with alcohol

Let's see what I remember from last night's dreams:

* someone's rather public suicide on a crowded beach, then a flashback of the events leading up to it, including a young Auntie Brenda (Erin's mom) getting paranoid

* my brother telling me that his friend Jeremy got fired from a job because he ate an entire slice of white cake that contained a lot of alcohol

* meeting Ty and Jeremy later on to talk about things, and play with toys

* my sister playing video games while we were in the basement at a dinner party

* everyone drawing with black marker on the white walls, and coloring the pictures in

* my mom getting mad when she discovered what we'd done, but eventually figuring that it was no use trying to cover it up as we'd all just do it again

Seeing things through a newcomer's eyes...

This late update courtesy of multiple random computer restarts... grr!

The Good Friday service was pretty good, and solemn. I said hi to a bunch of people (Kevin, Daniel, Anita, Vanessa C., Danielle, Maxine, and Megan), and talked to a bunch more about updates / life / finishing school / food / bathroom trips. Sophia asked me whether I could make it to our pal Winnie's baby shower. I can't go because of Awana. But when Maxine and Sophia have theirs in the summer, I'm sure I can if I am invited! The teens are doing a 30-Hour Famine; the ones I talked to (Quan, Margaret K., Hien, Tina) were hungry, as I expected. Silvester asked me about the sunrise / regular / baptism services on Sunday, and I got reacquainted with a newcomer. Jason Kay forgot my name, but that's all right... there are plenty of people around to introduce him to, even if not all of them come every week! As I was telling Nathan later, seeing things like our in-jokes / established quirks / Fellowship doings from the perspective of a newcomer is certainly interesting! It's not BAD in any way, of course! One example: Nathan brought up his unrelated twin sister Vanessa L., and Jason thought he actually HAD a sister! (no, they're just really close and have the same birthday!)

I talked to Jen, Dawn, Vivian, Karen, Cindy, Dianne, Andrea, and Randal about my siblings and Dave's getting back soon / Jon's scholarship and blog / my new University of Toronto hoodie... Steph got that for me, NOT Jon! Nathan's pants ripped before service started, so he spent all night covering that up. Christon (who got a short haircut) was originally sitting on one side of the aisle, but decided to switch seats to the other side since he was singing and running a slide show. Andrea's boyfriend Chuck goes back to Toronto early tomorrow morning, incidentally. It's a good thing that his home is here... I think their relationship would be harder if he actually lived over there! Some of the guys were later looking at stuff on the church pastoral office laptop... I'm not sure if they were fixing it, or just surfing the Web.

I told Phil, Jackie, Nathan, Andy (whom I haven't seen in a long time... I still have his birthday card around here somewhere), Melia, and others about my new books... I should really bring them sometime for my pals to look over! Phil's grandma (who's been in a wheelchair for the past few years) still remembers me, which is a good thing. I have concern and care for / about her, like I would be about almost anyone else. While he was trying to get a hold of Eddie by cell phone, Phil told me about this really honest interesting book which covered our faith from a bunch of non-Christian perspectives. Wish I could remember the title, but I'm sure I can borrow it from him sometime... unless it's a university book, that is! We also talked about movies, but neither of us has really seen any in some time. Tracy and I rediscovered that the pews in the back row of the sanctuary are very unstable, as they move every time someone leans on them! Citrus later complained when Nathan slapped him in the chest, and noted that my brother's chest chops weren't as bad. Then Nathan said that we should fear his wrath... somehow, we were not convinced! (despite his demonic voice)

Nathan, Eric, Jason, and I went to Red Robin's at Metrotown to eat. We decided to carpool since it was easier; we spent the ride there talking about buying guitars, and explaining things about the Fellowship and church to Jason. He wants to get to know more people his age, so the guys explained how much their Fellowship camp was. I had to tell Jason that I was not a leader of their group at all, but was in the older group. At Red Robin's, Nathan amused us with his random thoughts... yup, we definitely remember the old times eating out with 20 people past 11 PM! Eric and I also refused to sing for Nathan's entertainment (although Eric did put on a French accent and said that he was mixed Irish / German / French / English), Nathan said that the salty optional seasoning (which Eric jokingly tried spraying on my head.. I told Jason that it was okay since we'd known each other for YEARS!) gave him heart palpitations, and I mentioned my ginger ice cream. We talked about TV shows, and made Eric blush by mentioning that our waitress had given him a look. (according to Nathan, she looked like the actress who plays the weird daughter of the devil and a devout Christian woman off some TV show he tried to like recently) We also tried figuring out (with Eric's math major help) whether Nathan had hung out more or less with us last summer, so he could attempt to plan more hanging out this summer when my brother gets back. (we remember that he was really busy last August because of his internship, counselling, and stuff!)

Jason asked if Nathan had a girlfriend, and figured that she would be eating with us if he did! Nathan said she probably would be, unless he wanted to balance spending time with her / time with the guys. (to which Jason protested that I was a girl, hahaha) Then he asked the three of us if having a relationship was high-maintenance: none of us had any real experience ourselves! But we did manage to tell him that it kinda depended on the person you were going out with. Eric, Nathan, and I discussed Sean as a kid teasing parents... he was a handful, all right. Then again, my brother always burns people in fun (like Margaret L. and Becky) when they don't know him well... not sure who's better! Nathan then asked us if Turkish Delight could cause food poisoning if it was a couple years old, since he'd been having stomach problems over the last couple of days or so. Eric and I figured that food poisoning wouldn't be SLOW since it would hit you all at once, so that might not be the cause. We also had to calculate exactly how much to tip the waitress, especially since we decreased it for the slow service... good thing she didn't forget about my four $10 bills since I need to pay four kids their pledge money for the famine! Nathan drove Eric and me back to the church, and dropped Jason off at Safeway since he had to buy some stuff... Eric and I did note the rainy weather, and thought of Jason's late-night trip home by bus.

On the way back home, Eric was concerned and thought I was insane because of my random laughter, and noted that he'd forgotten his water bottle when he saw mine. He also vehemently denied the existence of the Parisienne's fart lever (which is otherwise known as the automatic lock), noted the higher gas prices, commented on my MSN name this week and gave me a great suggestion for a new one (which I instantly took as soon as I got home), and thought that I'd actually talked to "Mystery Memphis." Nope, I've not talked to him for more than a week! (that does not mean I haven't forgiven him or anything, though!) We discussed old Richmond Crew in-jokes ("Soren," "Sarne," "booty," "Wong Kee," "A-1," etc.), noted the early spring carnival at Lansdowne Mall, and got gas at 92.9¢ a litre instead of the 99.3¢ it was selling at everywhere else. I'll give him a call tomorrow (technically later today) to see if he is really going to Sunrise Service... neither of us are sure that we can get quite enough sleep / wake up in time for it! (since it starts at 6:30 AM and all)

Orange trees, cigar trees, my middle name, breakup, Bo Kong, Friday plans, quizzes

Corey thinks I may be part orange tree and never knew it, just because I had a dream last night where I had oranges / orange streaks on my head. ("I was going to suggest that you had an orange tree in your family at some point, but maybe your family tree is an orange tree!") Hahaha, he is amusing! Now I'm telling him about my middle name and cigar trees... good times! :D (although he jokingly thinks potato salad grows on cigar trees, and that bird poop grows on trees in general... hahaha!)

In other news, I finally got to tell Erik of what happened a couple weeks ago. I'd been meaning to tell him ever since it happened, but hadn't really seen him online. Finally, I told him about Stephen in a PM. Theoretically, it should really get easier with each telling, but it didn't... maybe this is because I consider him a special friend? *shrug* He was the last person that I had in mind to tell... everyone else already knows.

Just made lunch plans with my mom for 12:45 tomorrow, too. We're going to try the Bo Kong vegetarian restaurant. Too bad Josh and I don't keep in touch, otherwise I could tell him how it is. (a few months back, he wanted to know how it was if I ever tried it) Good thing that Save-On Foods is nearby, as I do need to shop for more stuff than I got yesterday. (milk, yogurt, things like that) It helps that they have a car, dry ice, and coupons. All important things for a grocery run. :D

Eric says he'll pick me up at 6:30 tomorrow night. Good Friday service starts a half hour earlier than usual, so I can count on leaving at 6:35 or 6:40. It'll be a pretty solemn service, as in past years. I remember nailing our sins to the cross, too... Citrus had to help me with it last year! Guess I'll see what happens!

I can't do the Classic Female Literary Character Test... there are misspellings in the picture results. :P

You Are 5% Redneck

You ain't no redneck - you're all Yankee!

You scored as Beast.

Codename: The Beast
Full Name: Henry P. McCoy
Mutant Powers: Increased agility, strength and stamina.

Henry "Hank" McCoy is a founding member of the X-Men. Of all his original teammates, Hank had the best childhood and loving parents, so his temper and way of living was one of the happiest at the mansion. Beast's mutation at first was hardly noticeable, but while away from the team, Hank made a terrible mistake: testing a new substance that he was using to study the x-factor. Beast tried the substance on himself. This caused a further mutation on his body, covering him with gray fur that later became blue, fangs and great nails. He had then indeed become a "beast."

One of the only students at the mansion who took up an education beyond that of the Xavier school, Beast's studies were in the biogenetic area of his field. Possessing a quick wit, a wry sense of humour, and scholarly wisdom, he also has a penchant for quoting the classics and poetry. Despite his beastly exterior, he is possessed of incredible genius, making him one of the most intelligent minds in the world.

Banning / 20 Best Excuses for Calling in Sick / Comment Extravaganza / NetHack Monster

I should ban myself from the computer so I can get more reading done. However, that's not very likely to happen.

Mark as spam

I just left an anonymous comment on someone's journal about rebound syndrome / fighting, and they tracked it back to me using IP addresses. So then I got replies from her and her "boyfriend" saying that they thanked me for my concern, that there was no need to fight since they'd met in person, and that they were surprised I still kept tabs on them. I only came across her journal (his is friends-only) because of the magical power of my LJ friendsfriends pages, not because I really cared. :P

After reading the comments, I deleted them / banned the both of them from commenting in my journal / marked both their comments as spam. Hahaha. Although I must say it gave me a bit of a surprise to see their replies in my inbox. I'm laughing now, haha! :D

P.S. That all goes back to this.

* found out Lush is by the Bay... good to know!

* got much-needed iced tea and fruit juice from Shopper's

Got home and found out Mike will be off till April 4. Guess I'll have to figure out stuff with my parents then... yikes! Ah well, it better be okay!

Dreaming and Weirdness Quotient

Last night, I dreamed that Christina A. had a bunch of violent conflict with another person. Then John A. fell in love with her, and they eventually lived happily ever after. In that same dream, I also went to Shoppers Drug Mart with my Optimum card to look at their soaps and skincare products. Very weird!

I do plan to go out today and get money from the bank, though. Paying back Julie, Elaine, Stanley, and Margaret their pledge money for the 30-Hour Famine is certainly a big motivator! I shall probably eat out somewhere, too... not sure where, yet. The day's early, and it IS sunny out.

Link: The Which Chemical Element Am I Test written by effataigus on Ok Cupid

Friends! They've been there for you for years. You know them like the palm of your hand. You are clearly attracted to a friend. You like someone you can feel comfortable with, someone who will listen and always be there. You have a lot of common interests. Though you have your disagreements and bicker like an old married couple, you love how they are always around when you are having trouble with the other love interests in your life or school is getting you down. Somehow in the end, it always comes back to them no matter who you're dating...

You like them because of their:

Career: They're not sure what they want to do. It's either something that involves helping other people, or something creative.
Clothes: They probably dress similar to how YOU dress.
Physical features: You've seen them grow from goofy and clumsy to drop dead gorgeous.
Traits: Funny, creative, trustworthy, loyal.

Relationship: The main problem is "getting to the point of relationship." Like a frustrating soap opera, your relationship will be full of annoying twists and turns that will prevent you from dating. Once you do actually "date," things could go either way. Some people are afraid of risking their friendship if they date. That's a risk anyone's going to have to take in this situation. However, in the end, it could be worth it.

The good: You're friends, to start with. Someone once said "best friends make the best wives / husbands." The good thing about being attracted to friends is that you know them well. You already know what to expect of them, and you have someone who has always been there for you. You know and tolerate their flaws, which is definitely a good thing in any relationship. Your parents know each other, your friends know you both, and you won't find any surprises if you date. If you both feel the same way and have the real patience, things could be looking up. :) Many great couples start off as buddies.

The bad: One problem with liking friends or dating friends, is the fact that you are friends is always going to be there no matter what happens. Even when you are dating, your boyfriend / girlfriend might treat you like a friend sometimes, instead of a girlfriend or boyfriend. Sometimes friends have to watch their love interest as they date other people, refer to you as a "brother" or "sister" (ouch), and deny their feelings because they might be afraid that love could ruin your friendship. Sometimes the feelings aren't mutual, and that can be devastating. Just remember: Patience is key here. If it's meant to happen, it will happen.

You: You have some similarities to your friend. You have somewhat of a creative edge, and you are very caring and hopeful. Sometimes you can be kind of dreamy or spacey, but you are also smart when you apply yourself. You can be kind of dramatic at times, but what would anyone expect? Your life is a living soap opera! You prefer: Friends. Could like: Angels, Goofs. Stay away from: Parents.

True story for Andre: My mom ate cat once!

Yes, it's true. My mom ate cat once when she was a kid in Hong Kong. Her mom decided that since some relatives and important people she wanted to impress were coming over, the family cat would make a nice ingredient in the soup. Mind you, my mom was quite attached to this cat. Ten years is a long time to a kid, especially when it's all of your life up to that point. She came home from school one day and noticed the cat was missing. Her mother wouldn't tell her where it had gone. Fast forward to dinnertime, with all these important people sitting around the table. Someone asked what was in the delicious soup. When Grandma told them that the main ingredient was the cat, everyone nodded wisely: old cats were the best for soups. On the other hand, little Kitty (my mother, NOT the cat! :P) was quite horrified! Just imagine if you were inadvertently eating a beloved family pet, and you'll get an idea of how she felt. She burst out screaming. That in itself was NOT the thing to do, especially at dinner with important people around. She then ran to her room crying, and wouldn't come out for the rest of the night.

There's also the time that my brother's friend Ty ate dog, but that was because he was on a missions trip to China then. It wasn't raw, despite their "raw dog" jokes later. Apparently, it tasted very tender. That story is much more mundane than the cat one!

Dreams of Eric, Christon, and 3 AM choir practices at conferences

I had a dream last night which mainly involved people from my church. The setting was a conference building / hotel place. I helped teach the little kids; we were trying to help some of them cope with their parents' deaths by writing stuff on the board, telling them stories, answering their questions, etc.

Little Justin, Ryan, and Bianca (among others) came up to the teachers (including me and Auntie Janice, who is Justin and Bianca's mom in real life) for hugs and reassurance. I could picture Uncle Frank (Janice's husband) in my mind, knowing that he was one of the people who died. (he's very much alive in real life!) The only one of the kids who's had a parent die in real life was Ryan, whose dad Gary died of liver cancer almost a year ago.

After that was over, everyone convened in a huge room for a short talk. When that was finished, we had free time. I went around with my friends and the kids; Eric, Christon, Clement (Christon's brother, who doesn't go to church), and a few more of the guys went down a long flight of stairs to play video games. I joined them for a while; later, Eric wanted me to tell his mom Veronica (who doesn't actually go to church either) something. So I set off in search of her, and found her in the bathrooms. When I relayed the good message, she freaked out because she thought something was wrong with Eric's kidneys. I had to reassure her that it wasn't the case before I went back downstairs.

Later on, most of the church people were in that big conference room again. Michael told me that there was to be a 3 AM choir practice, and that I should really tell anybody I still saw around: especially the guys who were still playing video games. So I went down the long flight of stairs again, and told them.

That's all I remember of the dream... although for some reason, I woke up with O Come, O Come Emmanuel in my head. Luckily, thinking of Rancid's Salvation cured that. Yes, I know I spend lots of time with all the church kids... and that I used to have love for Eric, and do now for Christon. As for the kids' parents dying, I have NO clue what that's supposed to mean... I *hope* none of them die! I haven't seen Michael since the church anniversary dinner a few weekends ago, either. Even when the church choir was active, we NEVER had 3 AM practices! I remember one time when we practiced all morning and afternoon, but that still wasn't 3 AM. No, I haven't been thinking of the last big Summer Conference in 2000 either... what a weird dream!

I just heard from my friend Erik... he's moved now, but won't be online for a while. Good thing he let me know, since I've been thinking about him lately! I should also send a birthday ecard / wishes to Sarah Rowlett today since she's turned 17.

Hanging out with Yazmine for the first time this year / Various quizzes

Finally had a chance to meet up with Yazmine, which was awesome! We went to the dollar stores (where someone from church with my mother's name recognized me), Book Warehouse for a couple of hours (we just read a bunch of books there), and to Red Robin's for dinner. I'm proud that I didn't spend any more money on books today; I stuck to cards, mailing envelopes, food, and other such necessities for the most part. Yazmine says she'll stay home while her brother's wedding is going on; she's definitely not on good terms with her brother Czardos! (that all stems from her cancer and all the arguments they had years ago) Managed to stuff all the extra things into the envelopes for certain people when I got home, and I'll surprise a certain other person too.

The Goddess of Roses and Love. You are a hopeless
romantic. Always optimistic and loving, you
have many friends and you are exceptionally
trustworthy. You are a innocent beauty.

Which gorgeous goddess are you? For girls! (breathtaking pics!)
brought to you by Quizilla

You Are 35% Normal

(Occasionally Normal)

You sure do march to your own beat...
But you're so weird, people wonder if it's a beat at all.
You think on a totally different wavelength,
And it's often a chore to get people to understand you.

HAHAHAHA... this is what I keep trying to tell people! ;)

Your word is: Brooding. You are a true thinker and
often try to figure out the meaning of life,
why we are all here, etc. You may not be so
social, and often think twice before acting, but
those thoughts you have in your mind never stop
flowing in. Sometimes you can be so
deep in concentration, you forget about other things that
you have to do. Don't change... this world needs deep people.

What dark word represents you? (anime pics and 7 outcomes)
