As soon as I got into Eric's Honda tonight, he started in on jokingly blaming me for Anaheim then leading the Canucks 2-0.. there is no way that I delivered certain packages to GM Place or the Turin Olympic Games today, thanks! I was AT HOME all day, and don't have any connections besides! We just listened to the game while mock-arguing and his impressions of Arnold Schwarzenegger. After it was 3-0 on a goal that came one second before a Vancouver penalty expired, we turned off the radio and discussed the week for us. (he CAN eat spicy curry chips, but probably won't... that does it: I have to buy some more for him to try!) When we turned the radio back on shortly before we got to the church, it was 3-1 at the start of the first intermission, and Alex Auld had been pulled in favor of Maxim Ouellet.
Steph gave me some pictures from the holidays of her, me, Jon, Vivian S., Melissa, her friend Matt, Terrence, and his friend Kenny. Those were some good times at Milestones! I confirmed with Sam that he's picking me up tomorrow, which is good. Karen had this huge Christmas gift bag with her: Eric commented that Christmas was two months ago, and Karen said that it was for me. I thanked her, and gave it to Eric to hold for me tonight once she said it was glass. We also heard that Billy and Stella had had a baby boy earlier today... no name yet, though!
After Bible Study, I asked her why she'd given that to me: it was kinda in return for the platter I'd given her as a wedding gift. It's the one that she brings to all the gatherings... like I said to her at the time, she could now put food on the thing and share it with others! Besides, she still feels really badly about the time when they all sucked. For some reason, she keeps missing my RSVPs to her Bible Study group email... Randal knows I did! Speaking of Randal, he said that he'd wear his blue fisherman's hat for me, and he did... it DOES kinda look like mine, and it's useful when it's cold outside for sure! (man, it felt like the ARCTIC outside tonight!)
I went downstairs to read a bit about the Green River Killer case, then Christon spotted me and asked how my week was. Putting away my book, I answered him: the whole moving extension thing is confusing and leaves one wondering! He said he'd pray for me, which I appreciated. His week's been frustrating because of a project, but at least it's Reading Break and he doesn't have to worry too much about it for now. Then again, he has no clean shirts because of the project... oh well, not much you can do! I asked him if he'd tried the new spicy curry chips: he hadn't, but he will since I told him that they taste better than the Mesquite BBQ chips! (they do!)
Margaret, Steph, and Karen Grace were bugging each other about pool parties and such. When the other two mentioned that Steph could pop out of her own birthday cake, I told them about the stripper who'd been found dead inside a cake once! They felt bad for laughing at it, but it IS funny! "HAPPY BIRTHDAY... psst! That's your cue! HAPPY BIRTHDAY.... anybody alive in there?!" Hahaha! I talked to Danielle, who says that she's coming with Erin on Sunday for Steph's dinner party: that's good then! Janette thanked me for the sweet and funny birthday card I'd given her: she was certainly surprised when her brother Jason gave it to her last week! Melia tried getting us to go out to eat, but we declined the Metrotown Red Robin's in favor of going home.
Eric, Steph, and I listened to Sportstalk on the way home to figure out what the score was: when we heard that the Ducks wouldn't relinquish the lead, we all moaned. But then we heard that the backup goalie didn't allow another goal all night: that was a pleasant surprise! Steph told me that Grandma comes home tomorrow morning at 10:30... I swear Mom tells me all the wrong information on purpose! "She's coming home on Sunday," indeed! Eric helped me carry in the glass platter when we got to my place, and asked whether my sister was a car thief since she was alone in his car with the keys. Haha, I don't think she'd STEAL the car! Shortly afterwards, I discovered that I left my Bible AND my notebook at church: I don't know why I just didn't put them back in my knapsack after Bible Study! Grrr... oh well, maybe I'll find them in the Lost and Found tomorrow or something!
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. :PThe only complete copy... you'll have to go around erasing answers.
300 to go.
4701. What is your reaction to beggars and homeless people on the streets? Ummmm... I don't know, I halfway feel sorry for them and halfway think they should stop being lazy and get a job.
Are they lazy? Yes, I'm sure, but they could have other problems too.
Why? Mental / drug problems, lack of resources...
