Red Robin's, carols, desserts, and bubble tea / Questions 2251-2300 of 5000

Highlights from tonight:

* Went to Red Robin's with Jon, Andrea, Chuck, Chung, Elaine, and some other dude for dinner. It was okay: I discovered that Elaine doesn't like black olives, and LOVES her niece and nephew (Olivia and Ian) a LOT. It's weird to think of her brother David playing with kids, but he apparently does it well. Jon and I had to finish Andrea's massive chicken salad for her, heh. I thought that someone should write a book attempting to describe what it was like to parent Jesus Christ from Mary and Joseph's perspectives... how DO you figure that out?!

* Had an okay time at the choir service, and thought about certain online friends of mine. I talked to Katherine briefly to say I was sorry to hear of her husband's death... he was 20 years older than she! My brother brought out Bring The Torch, Jeanette, Isabella: nice French tune! I also got a Christmas card from Vania, and gave Jason a birthday card... Andrea, Chuck, Christon, Randal, and Karen Lew also got Christmas cards. Jon told Chuck that I was known as the "(birthday) card person"... probably he's right, and it's better than "this is my sister: she reads a lot, and chews a lot of gum!" (as he memorably introduced me once to someone a couple of years ago)

* After that was over with, we all had desserts in the balcony: I played with little Joshua for a bit while talking to his parents (Tim and Maxine), then went upstairs to watch the rest of the hockey game along with everyone else. (Nathan and Steph were at the game tonight) We lost 6-5 to Calgary in a shootout, and half the people upstairs were kinda being anti-social and staring at the TV screens. There was a lot of dessert, though.. I talked to a bunch of people about their Christmas plans, the people coming into town, and the massive amounts of food / turkey we'd be eating!

* Megan, Sam, Ivan, Jon, and I met Nathan at Dragon Ball: yes, we went there twice in a week. :P The lady there asked Jon whether he'd been away again, and said it was nice to see him. (on the way there, we'd joked about her LIKING him... but she's probably twice his age, heh) They are open from 5-midnight on Christmas Day, but I think we'll be too full to even entertain the idea of going there... at least I got a stamp card (and a pudding bubble tea) from there again! (my old one went bye-bye a few years ago when someone working there told me that it was invalid or something... aiyoh!) We saw Sean there, and talked to him about New York City.. he's been sleeping ever since he got back on Monday, and is going to three Christmas services on Sunday even though he's not going to like it. Jon called Eunice and was surprised that she answered her cell AND that she was free for SLB tomorrow... he thinks that Eric H. is in as well. Re-introduced Megan to bubble tea, and then learned that her buddy bailed on her for Christmas dinner. :(

* On the way home, we listened to The Beat (urban music radio station) before deciding that "Breaking The Waves" on CBC was where it was at. (the campus radio station goes in and out too often for our taste, heh) They have some weird music on at this time of night: Ivan described it as "someone farting," haha. We joked around about a bunch of stuff: we'll figure out Sunday Richmond rides tomorrow, and Mom may be out of luck if she only wants to take one car to church since she won't want to get up early for an 8:15 breakfast at the church. (it's not my optimum cup of tea either, but I'm used to being sleep-deprived / cranky on Sundays :P)

Postcards galore, Terrence, and holiday quizzes

I received three Christmas cards from Sheryl (sheryll), Ana (glamourcorpse), and Charlotte (charshark) today! Sheryl included two postcards of San Antonio, while Charlotte included a bunch of postcards from her shipment of 500 that she apparently got off eBay for some ridiculously cheap price... thanks so much! :D

* Virgin and Child with Angels: Folding Ivory triptych, with traces of polychromy... from the Metropolitan Museum of Art
* the Seine and Notre Dame from Paris, France
* the Legend of the Dogwood (having to do with the Crucifixion)
* the Big Hole River and the Pinter Peaks in the distance on Highway 43 between Wise River and Wisdom, Montana
* New York City
* an "artsy" one by Anne Taintor involving those word fridge magnets: "my garden kicks ass"
* wolves
* Seattle University fountain and Christmas tree at dusk
* yellow brittlebush and saguaro cactus by Canyon Lake on the Apache Trail in Arizona (should ask Corey if he's ever been there in his travels to visit his ex, heh)

My cousin Wilson sent me a Christmas ecard, which was nice of him. I kinda forgot about the ecard option this year, but I'll certainly send him one in return! Haha, it's a game thing... grab the ornaments and hang them on the tree before the cat gets them! :D

Steph also emailed me about Terrence: she won't be in town for much of the Poo Help Doctor's appearance, since he gets here sometime in Monday evening and leaves at 4 AM on NYE. At least he's very independent and social... Jon and I won't have to worry much about him, and can bring him out to whatever we do if we wish! (it should be fairly obvious why she calls him that, haha)

Your New Year's Resolutions

1) Get a pet pony

2) Eat more escargot

3) Travel to Japan

4) Study Japanese pop culture

5) Get in shape with ballet

Your Sexy Christmas Look Is

Syriana, Friday Five on words, Questions 2201-2250 of 5000, and quizzes

HAHAHAHAHA. Why is JACK FM playing Blackstreet's No Diggity?!

After my last post, Eric came over and fiddled around with my mom's scanner for a bit while Nathan napped on my brother's bed (from the alcohol) and Jon called Tally to make Regent plans for tomorrow. (we joked about getting married, and white people making Nathan lose interest right away) My mom was going to see Syriana (but not Harry Potter 4) with us, since she could check out George Clooney.. however, she decided not to as she was up till 4 AM yesterday due to drinking some strong espresso. Vivian and Steph went to some other party, anyhow. Jon IMDB'ed Fruit Chan while making some changes to his songs for tomorrow's carol / dessert program. Eric tried to figure out what was wrong with Jon's network connection, but eventually we all had to get going to Silvercity. (the movie coupons from Ivan and Karen proved useful to me, heh)

The movie was okay, but trying to figure out the first half kept Jon awake, and gave me a headache! (which I took Advil for when I got home at 1:20) The setting kept jumping from place to place (Spain, Virginia, the Persian Gulf, etc.), there wasn't that much in the way of character development, and there were too many characters and stories. It was about corruption in the oil industry ("it keeps us safe and warm!"), and one character tried doing the right thing... but it wasn't enough. There was also some torture scene involving fingernail-pulling... blood and explosions, ick. Next time, I hope we watch a movie that is actually artsy and doesn't try to do too much... but then, we went in with no real expectations.

On the way home, we listened to / discussed the Dead Milkmen, Crazy Frog, and Arrogant Worms.. those were great, and gave me ideas on what to download to fill up blank space on the CD burning project. No, I won't inflict Crazy Frog on my brother.. but POPCORN sounds cool, haha. I also heard that Bon's is closed on Christmas Day (because it's not a Chinese place), so Erin and Steph will be cooking breakfast at church... should be interesting, except that I hate getting up at a certain time / being TOO social. Anti-social time / downtime rocks the house. ;)

2228. How did we start using the phrase "Just be yourself" in the first place? Who coined it, and why did they choose those words? Too lazy to do a Google search for you. :P

Are naked child images in paintings more acceptable than photographs of naked children? Sorta...

Why or why not? It's not actually the real thing.

Light Bearer

Class: Cherub
Alliance: Light

You are blessed with a heart of gold. You are a
kind, sweet, gentle person who believes very
strongly in doing the right thing. You tend to
be very emotional and very sensitive to other
people's feelings. You are so gentle that you
would not be suited to an active role in the
fight, but more of a passive one. You would be
a Light Bearer. As a Light Bearer, you would be
a source of inspiration to others. A reminder
of what they were fighting for.

The Temptress

You are the one who comes into people's dreams at
night to drive them mad with desire. You are
sultry, sexy, and passionate. Others find you
hypnotic. You have the sort of smoldering eyes
and bedroom glances that are the stuff of legend.

What's so scary about you: Like sweet poison, you
are addictive and deadly.

Your gemstone: Garnet
Your moon: Rose Moon (July)

You are Bahamut!
You scored 10 good or evil, 5 spirituality, 9 power, and 10 intelligence!

Do you hear that? Something on the horizon stirs a cyclone from thin air, clouds boil and darken, the air grows chill as an unmistakeable sound pierces the air. The clouds part and a stream of pure white light streaks the sky, obliterating anything it touches, sparking countless explosions and drawing both gasps of terror and screams of agony in chorus. Granted, Bahamut has been known to play both sides, but he's usually on the side of good. He's extremely old, very wise, and lacking none of the power he wielded long ago. Basically he's a demi-god, but for our purposes, he's the embodiment of all the best traits - intelligence, spirit, strength, and good. Appearing in practically every single Final Fantasy in some form or other, Bahamut is synonymous with not only power, but strength of will / wisdom / strength of character. I must applaud you, test taker, for you are in a class all your own. If you really measure up to Bahamut's impressive list of attributes, you're all right in my book. Your polar opposite is the Goblin. You're likely to get along with anyone aligned with Good.

SOOPER Chocolate
You scored 44 for muffiny goodness!

You are a chocolate chocolate chip truffle muffin with a ribbon of nauseatingly rich fudge baked in caramel! With frosting and sprinkles! Oooh, sprinkles. A cherry on top as well! A candle and sparkler! What does this mean? You are probably filled with happy energy and have the power to make everyone around you scream with unnatural euphoria for hours on end. This is not a good thing. You have an 87% chance of dying due to autoerotic asphyxiation.

A prodigy from his very first appearance, Schroeder idolises Beethoven and spends most of his free time at the keyboard of his piano. He plays backstop for Charlie Brown's baseball team, but his heart belongs to classical music. The best way to get rid of annoying distractions is to yank the piano out from under them.

Reluctant User
You scored 1 public-transit-ness!

You're reluctant to use public transportation. Maybe you have a few prejudices about the people who ride it, or maybe you just live in an area that has very crappy public transportation. Public transportation is not all bad, though: perhaps you would open your mind by visiting a city with good public transportation and getting an experienced user to show you how to use it, and maybe you'd do yourself some good to move into an area that has better public transportation, if you currently live in an area without it.

Three different kinds of beer, turkey, and plans

I had a good time with Jon, Steph, Vivian, and Nathan: we joked a lot about Surrey, spiritual gifts of changing gay people's orientation (like Louis, haha), Steph singing in the shower, beer, and SLB. Apparently, the SLB meal is going to be Saturday at 1... before the dinner with Vernon, his mom, and Sarah. Jon says I'm better off busing to Red Robin's tomorrow, which I thought would be the case. We all tried three different kinds of beer: Terrible is a bad name for a beer, haha! Steph decided to go through all the pictures on the computer screensaver, which was very interesting... past trips and stuff are cool, heh. Jon says he wants to keep up his Boxing Day tradition of going to A&B Sound, so maybe he'll do that after he picks up Melissa from the airport. As for New Year's Eve, we're not sure what we're doing yet: Chinese Eric wants to do something, and I hear white Eric wants to make a night out of seeing a PPV hockey game at his house. The guys wanted to see a movie after dinner, but we haven't gone yet. There are a lot of games on Addicting Games, so we played a few of those before we lost patience, heh.

Dinners, lunches, Christmas stuff, quizzes

American boy wears kilt to school dance. Headmaster tells him to go home and change, or else he's not allowed to be there. Boy says: "No, this is my heritage." Headmaster says: "You look like a clown." Everyone gets really upset and starts a petition because it's discriminating against his heritage.

Read the article...


Sign the petition (I was #8998... almost at 9000!)

I wasn't expecting to get a postcard from Tallinn, Estonia in today's mail.. Kadri (bad_habit) sent it to me, and it's definitely cool. (with pink snow?) Then I got this snowy white card from Amy (exclamation_pnt)... let's just say I agree with her ideas for that bumper sticker. ;)

I got an email back from Andrea: Chuck's birthday isn't till Apr. 15, but hey! At least I have it in my BootyBase now, haha. Steph forwarded us an email... I always knew her workplace was generous with its employees, but Heron's at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel for Company Christmas Party #3?! (aiya, look at those prices!)

Speaking of email, I just got one from my brother: there's a dinner tonight with Nathan, Vivian S., and Erin's aunt Eva. Funny, since I just called him and there was nobody home. I'll see if I can make it... and see if I can download a bunch of weird stuff while I'm out, haha.

You Are Cherry Kiss Lip Gloss

You're a total girly girl who every guy is sweet on.
You take pleasure in the simple things in life, from cute T-shirts to stuffed animals.

Any guy needs to match your romantic idealism to win your heart, which is why few have.
No wonder Cherry is your signature flavor. It's delicious, sugary, and fun - like you!

You Were Mostly Nice This Year!

Sure, you had your naughty moments... but guess what?
Santa was probably sleeping when you were living it up.
As far as he's concerned, you've been on your best behavior.
So cross your fingers, and you might score good presents.

Your Christmas Stocking Will Be Filled With Coal

You haven't been *that* naughty this year
Santa is just screwing with you

Poop into the toilet! / Weird Turkish movies / Questions 2151-2200 of 5000

Haha, I haven't heard Mr. Big's To Be With You in FOREVER... yay for JACK FM! :D

I was in the bathroom just now... and I was thinking....

Toilet paper costs $7 at least around here for a pack of 24... and it all ultimately just goes to wipe your butt and go down the toilet... man, that's a lot of expense for stuff like that... but I suppose I'd rather have that than the old system of leaves / Sears catalogs / whatever was lying around....

Hahaha. This sounds like something Richard would write... hahaha... and no, this has nothing to do with the Chapters Dump...

Corey's just been telling me about some hilariously stupid Turkish movie, haha. I'm glad I'm sticking with him instead of certain other people, heh.

[20:57:41] mrptptpt: woo hoo! I'm downloading Turkish Star Wars!
[20:58:06] mrptptpt: a 1982 remake of Star Wars.... from Turkey. it's supposed to be AWFUL
[20:58:48] AlenaBrolxFlami: .........
[20:59:11] mrptptpt: wow
[20:59:16] mrptptpt: it's going FAST
[20:59:25] mrptptpt: I'll have it in like half an hour if this speed keeps up
[20:59:28] mrptptpt: a 700 meg file
[20:59:41] mrptptpt: between 250 and 300 k/sec
[20:59:43] AlenaBrolxFlami: that reminds me, I ought to download some stuff.. fill up that CD, haha
[20:59:55] mrptptpt: well, camel poo
[21:00:05] mrptptpt: as soon as I said that, it dropped to like 150
[21:00:09] mrptptpt: but now it's back over 200...
[21:00:20] mrptptpt: anyway, that's still fast :P I wish all torrents worked like that
[21:00:37] AlenaBrolxFlami: ha. yeah. funny how that works....
[21:00:41] mrptptpt: lots of them don't want to go over 10k, and I have to leave them running for a couple days
*irrelevant conversation deleted*
[22:25:28] mrptptpt: and Turkish Star Wars is freaking terrible... but hilarious
[22:26:10] mrptptpt: the first 10 minutes was nothing but random shots from the real Star Wars... this movie is fullscreen.. and they didn't crop the Star Wars footage.. so it's just all squished to fit the frame :P
[22:26:32] mrptptpt: oh, and the Death Star is Earth...
[22:26:34] mrptptpt: apparently
[22:27:07] mrptptpt: after winning the space battle, the two Turkish heroes they put on top of Star Wars footage woke up on a planet, buried underneath rocks
[22:27:12] mrptptpt: for some reason
[22:27:22] AlenaBrolxFlami: uh, that is kinda messed up..
[22:27:24] mrptptpt: then like 5 minutes later, they started wondering why they were on a planet
[22:27:51] AlenaBrolxFlami: hahaha
[22:27:58] mrptptpt: they just had a bunch of fights with "skeletons" and some robots strangled a kid.... who was all bloody and dead, but was alive and not bloody in the next scene...
[22:28:06] mrptptpt: this movie makes no freaking sense at all
[22:28:27] mrptptpt: now somehow they're underground with a bunch of people explaining things, which doesn't make any sense either
[22:29:04] mrptptpt: oh, and they spent a bunch of time showing Egyptian pyramids from a documentary for some reason
[22:29:06] AlenaBrolxFlami: I think they have continuity problems.
[22:29:12] mrptptpt: now they're back to random shots from Star Wars
[22:29:24] mrptptpt: and the bad guys aren't wearing masks anymore... and are human apparently
[22:29:33] mrptptpt: but they were supposed to be aliens with no brains according to the start
[22:29:35] AlenaBrolxFlami: you're right.
[22:29:59] mrptptpt: see... when the Star Wars ships attack the Death Star (which is Earth, you see), Earth forms a BRAIN SHIELD.
[22:30:13] mrptptpt: and the aliens don't have brains, so they can't get through that
[22:30:50] mrptptpt: now they're sneaking around in some tunnels after some blonde girl stared and smiled at the hero for a long time... she appeared out of nowhere somewhere during the skeleton fights
[22:31:02] mrptptpt: she doesn't seem to do anything... they just cut to her face a lot
[22:31:14] mrptptpt: now mummies are attacking out of nowhere!
[22:39:28] AlenaBrolxFlami: erm... yay for mummies!
[22:40:38] mrptptpt: the mummies killed a bunch of little kids
[22:40:51] AlenaBrolxFlami: oh, for goodness sakes..
[22:41:55] mrptptpt: the heroes were like 5 miles away exploring tunnels or something for like 5 minutes straight.. then the mummies attack and the heroes just turn around (several minutes), and suddenly they're back at the mummy attack.. then instead of saving the little kids, they run away through a secret passage or something
[22:42:09] mrptptpt: then a werewolf comes out of nowhere and kills everyone else :P
[22:46:14] AlenaBrolxFlami: ..... you didn't think this would be a GOOD movie, did you? :P
[22:55:34] mrptptpt: this is REALLY bad... and makes no sense :P it's bad in a fun way at least.. lots of scenes of these two idiots karate chopping random monsters :P they karate chop people's arms and legs off!
[22:56:19] mrptptpt: now they just unbearably tortured the heroes by dumping some sand on them...
[22:56:27] mrptptpt: then they just sat up and smiled at each other
[22:56:38] mrptptpt: "they survived the torture!!!!!"
[22:57:29] AlenaBrolxFlami: that's the worst they could think of? sand?!
[22:58:16] mrptptpt: well, now that they've proven how tough they are by surviving a little sand, they've been sentenced to fight one of the monsters they just killed 347 of in the prior scene
[22:58:32] AlenaBrolxFlami: ... um...
[22:58:52] mrptptpt: and instead of fighting, the hero is jumping on trampolines to jump over the monster a bunch.. (trampolines off screen of course, he's supposed to be jumping high himself :P)
[22:59:03] mrptptpt: oh wait, he just kicked the monster in the head like three times...
[22:59:11] mrptptpt: actually he did it once, then they played it a few more times :P
[23:01:39] mrptptpt: okay.. now one of the heroes is at a Muslim temple that "broke off from Earth" and landed on this planet.... now it's talking about how cool Islam is, and how their books have the answers to beating all the bad guys or something
[23:02:00] AlenaBrolxFlami: ..... hahahaha
[23:03:30] mrptptpt: and the Islam priest dude just explained that the blonde chick that randomly showed up as a main character towards the start of this mess hasn't done anything but smile and bat her eyelashes because the priest dude "hid the brain and the sword"
[23:03:44] mrptptpt: oh.... NO WONDER :P now it all makes sense
[23:06:50] mrptptpt: now Jesus saved everyone. before, they were saying Mohammed was the cool one
[23:07:16] mrptptpt: after fighting some random monsters and bad guys, they found the super duper temple o' whatever
[23:07:42] mrptptpt: and there's guys with gold trashbags over their heads guarding a paper maché sword or something...
[23:08:44] mrptptpt: oh.. that was THE sword... there's a brain with it :P
[23:08:52] mrptptpt: so now they found the sword and the brain!
[23:09:47] AlenaBrolxFlami: hehe, yay!
[23:10:20] mrptptpt: the sword isn't paper maché... it's just a big piece of wood they didn't even bother to paint :P
[23:13:29] AlenaBrolxFlami: low-budget much? :P
[23:26:30] mrptptpt: um... they just BLEW UP THE WORLD, but nothing happened to indicate this in the rest of the movie.. they're still fighting and stuff.. even after they showed the world blow up
[23:26:55] mrptptpt: uh.. now they're still yelling "destroy the earth"
[23:26:58] AlenaBrolxFlami: WHAT?!
[23:27:03] mrptptpt: I guess the entire thing blowing up doesn't count :P
[23:27:15] mrptptpt: they keep showing random explosions from Star Wars
[23:27:20] AlenaBrolxFlami: ..... I guess not...
[23:27:23] mrptptpt: so I guess that was just supposed to indicate damage :P
[23:27:28] mrptptpt: WHAT THE HELL...
[23:27:44] mrptptpt: the hero just pulled a mummy's head off and threw it at another mummy...
[23:27:48] mrptptpt: the head then exploded :P
[23:27:53] AlenaBrolxFlami: .... what?!
[23:28:09] mrptptpt: now he's kicking holes through a monster with a red fursuit
[23:28:41] mrptptpt: and he just karate chopped a robot, and it exploded! :P
[23:29:43] mrptptpt: now they're back to replaying him jump kicking the monster he was jumping over a long time ago
[23:31:41] AlenaBrolxFlami: .... nice....
[23:32:45] mrptptpt: hahahahaha.. the hero just chopped the bad guy in half with his hand.. with a karate chop :P
[23:33:39] mrptptpt: like... vertically.. from the middle of his head down :P they keep showing shots of the "halves" of the bad guy by showing him laying down looking dead, and blocking half the screen with solid black so you can only see half of him
[23:33:48] mrptptpt: then the black effect flickers on and off :P
[23:34:42] AlenaBrolxFlami: ..... hahahaha.. nice.. :P
[23:34:45] mrptptpt: and "goodbye earthling" and the end
[23:35:02] AlenaBrolxFlami: oh man... weird stuff..
[23:35:04] mrptptpt: except then he talks about how great Earth is, and there can't be an Earth without humans or something...
[23:35:11] mrptptpt: they showed the bad guys blow Earth up!
[23:35:18] mrptptpt: so I don't know where he's going back to :P
[23:36:39] mrptptpt: on the IMDB board for this thing, someone from Turkey says that pretty much all Turkish movies are like this,and that people watch them seriously there... he said he was visiting relatives there, and couldn't stop laughing at the nonsense on their TV, but nobody else could see what was so funny
[23:37:14] AlenaBrolxFlami: haha, I bet that had to be funny..
[23:38:01] mrptptpt: well, I guess he wasn't FROM Turkey.. he has relatives there :P
[23:41:24] AlenaBrolxFlami: eh.. I know what you mean.
[23:42:08] mrptptpt: so I guess Turkish filmmakers have $5 to spend per movie, and don't know how to write anything that even remotely makes sense
[23:42:42] AlenaBrolxFlami: haha, I guess so..
[23:44:38] mrptptpt: apparently there are other movies like this out there... Turkish Star Trek, Turkish Superman....
[23:46:23] AlenaBrolxFlami: all with the same amount of nonsense, I'd bet..
[23:46:36] mrptptpt: probably :P

2006 bus pass, Christmas card, talking to Eric, Seven Deadly Sins

Today, I got my 2006 bus pass in the mail FINALLY. I was thinking about it over the past few days, since I'd mailed my application six weeks ago... thank goodness I didn't accidentally space on it! I also got a Christmas card for Pajita Uy (someone who lived here before)... it's amazing I still get mail for the previous residents even though I've lived here for more than five years! (I hope that doesn't happen to my mail when I move!)

I'm going to have to change my address at so many places when I do move:

* Safeway / Save-On-Foods / Shoppers Drug Mart (the card programs)
* the dentist (which reminds me, I really ought to pay the money I owe them... in the new year, perhaps?)
* the Vancouver / Richmond library systems
* the Ministry
* Telus / Hydro (for bills, yo!)
* plus more I haven't thought of, I'm sure!

Eric got on MSN earlier to say that he wasn't going to Fellowship on Friday, so I'd have to find another way to get there. Thank goodness I already have dinner plans with Andrea and Chuck, so it all works out. (I just emailed Andrea to confirm, and to ask when Chuck's birthday was... I have a feeling it's around this time of year, but it's not in my massive database!) Since Jon and I were talking about inviting him to be the fourth person to see the US-Switzerland hockey game with us on the 30th, I asked what he was doing then. He made a reference to murloc fin soup: I originally thought it was a Homestar Runner reference, but he told me that it was a World of Warcraft reference. "Murloc fin soup: restores 552 health over 24 seconds. Must remain seated while eating. If you spend at least 10 seconds eating, you will become well-fed, and gain 6 stamina and spirit for 15 minutes." That reminds me of the conversation we had in November 2004, when he was "officially bonked by a hat" as he'd graduated from university: darnashin blue, herbed owl eggs, and tough jerky being food from the same game... he said I was a "consumer of industrial-strength denial," haha. We also talked about Melissa, Steph skiing, and my being an OCDL. :D

It now occurs to me that I was supposed to hang out with Shannon today. Oh well, it doesn't matter since I've been thinking about our friendship... I've decided it's over for the most part. I don't need to go into reasons here, but her ditziness and repetitiveness has a lot to do with it... plus the fact that it takes FOREVER to make plans with her! (as opposed to the short time it takes with everyone else) I did try telling her this, but her numbers are unavailable / out of service. (yes, I did dial the right numbers!) At least now I have time to watch the hockey game and mess around with burning CDs while bugging Corey about these stupid Internet Explorer pop-ups that come up when I'm using FIREFOX!

Zany worship practice / Time with Jon and Jeremy at Steam Works / Que stions 2101-2150 of 5000

Before I left earlier, I found some amusement in the fact that Spoz had somehow stumbled upon my GJ and replied to it. His comment: "yeah, hi.. Spoz ere.. from the uber ridiculously famous SPOZ'S RANT (here - just in case it isn't already plastered a trillion times over on this site.. hahahaha)

Y'know that moment in one of them wacky stalker / serial killer movies when someone comes to bust open the door to the crazy shack, shines their torch around the predator's "abode" only to find a zillion and one surveillance photos of themselves going about their normal day to day activities.. but in crazy closeup?

(also used - the creepy "dark room / film developing" scene for similar effect)

yeah.. dunno why I'm reminded of that when I stumbled upon this blog..

heh.. go figure :)"

My reply: "Hahahaha. How in the heck did you manage to stumble on this site then? I'm thinking a certain mutual acquaintance of ours helped in that regard.... that, or those blog tracker linkie-poo site thingers. ;) But yeah... I'm not like that! haha. Not even three trillion times, hehe. You'll get yours later, haha. :P" I'll talk to him about it later, heh.

Jon, Ivan, and Isabel (who lives in Coquitlam, but spent the day in Richmond... getting lost on the bus is a good way to know a city!) picked me up at about 6:15 tonight: I'd wanted to go for beer with Jon and Jeremy later, so tagging along to worship practice was better than busing out. We talked about random things in the car, as well as Christmas plans. The funeral for Katherine's husband wins the title of "shortest funeral ever" since it was only 20 minutes long, according to my brother. (eulogy, five-minute-long sermon, and some singing.. definitely not a two-hour-affair as Nathan's mom's funeral was!) He had Alzheimer's for a few years, took a bad fall, and passed away since his immune system couldn't take much anymore... he'd been very fit for a 65-year-old, apparently. I told Jon that Steph had forwarded me Melissa's email about scalping tickets, and she seems okay with the idea of staying at my place too. Once we got to church, I went to the Pho place (fifth time in four weeks, and the second time in three days) and had some dinner. Chris ordered something to take out, and Steph had ordered stuff for Isabel and Ivan already, so everyone involved was good for dinner.

After dinner, I went back to the church: my sister was surprised to see me there, and teased me about "getting drunk on a Tuesday night." My brother thought that I'd be doing my Christmas cards at the Pho restaurant: uh, no... if nothing else, the Christmas stuff they practiced full-blast was enough to put me in the mood for writing a few cards to some close friends. Apparently, they're trying key changes / swing / Liberace (joke?) out on Christmas Day. Breakfast that morning will be at Bon's at 8:15-ish... we're going to be SO fat and full by the end of the day! (Bon's grease at breakfast, possibly Green Village for lunch with Justin's grandma, and Auntie Grace [Dave's mom] cooking a LOT for dinner....) What I thought was a New Year's Eve thing with Justin's grandma is actually on New Year's Day... and Jon told me about some Friday night dinner at the Broadway / Oak Red Robin's at 5:30 with Andrea, Chuck, and others. It'll be good seeing Chuck again... long-distance relationships can be hard, but at least he and Andrea have some phone contact every day!

Later, Jon and I Skytrained to Steam Works for beer with Jeremy, who was wearing $500 worth of Gore-Tex. (at least it's useful, and he likes his pants and jacket with lots of pockets!) It was kinda supposed to be Jen's farewell thing, but Jon hadn't talked to Jen in person since Sunday morning. We split this HUGE plate of nachos which we managed to finish, plus some buffalo chicken pizza. Everyone had a Christmas Ale, and the guys had an oatmeal stout each... and then Jon had a small cream ale on top of that! I certainly didn't need another beer after my 9% ale... usually, I get red on my second pint! (and it wasn't even a pint of ale, heh) As Jeremy said, I would have been WAY too happy on the bus, and reading the same line over and over again! Good thing we took the bus / biked home, heh. It was good seeing Jeremy again even though we just saw him yesterday, as we managed to talk about a lot of stuff. We probably won't have the SLB night before Christmas, heh. Jon's friends come into town on Christmas / Boxing Day / the 27th, so they'll be busy doing stuff.

Upon arriving in Richmond, Jon and I discovered that we'd missed the bus by five minutes... we certainly didn't want to wait an hour for the last one! He called Steph, who was watching a movie and didn't want to pick us up. Instead, we walked to my place: my brother fired up the Internet and looked at the Hardball Times, Aaron Gleeman's blog, and a page with the 186-184 triple overtime basketball game between the Detroit Pistons and the Denver Nuggets before leaving at 1:15 AM. I hope he didn't miss the bus... I'll call him tomorrow and ask, heh.

Elaine replied to my email about hanging out: Friday night after service is good for me, heh. Maybe people WILL go out afterwards, so we might do that with them... if not, no biggie. If she's driving me back to my place, even better. :D

Got these questions from this QuestionClub LJ post by Arthurbulla. I'm going to post the survey in 50-question batches, like the original. No worries there! Five thousand questions and answers wouldn't fit as an entry, anyhow. :P

You're the Rock Star Type! Mainly we think of Grace
Slick from Jefferson Airplane. You're hardcore,
rude, crude, and perhaps a druggie. Try to
remember that denial is the first sign. Other
rockers and pukers are Anita Pallenberg,
Marianne Faithfull, and Nico from the Velvet Underground.

Which 60's Type are you? (For girls!)
