My thoughts while prepping 90 birthday cards with stickers and stuff... / Quizzes

I'm prepping the birthday cards I got last week at the dollar store, plus some cards I already have for people whose birthdays are either already past or coming up really soon. They (will) have at least five stickers each, plus at least an introductory greeting of "Hey, *insert name here*! How's it going?" (a few years ago, my siblings joked that I should trademark that.. I don't think so! :P) My friends call me the Birthday Queen, haha. (Keith came up with it, and Jason said I have amazing prowess, haha!) Here are some of the thoughts running through my head:

* "Should I set aside a card for Teunis, especially since I'm meeting him at Chapters on Tuesday at 2? I know I got a card for Palmer (palmer_kun) when I met him last year, AND a Bathroom Reader... so yeah, why not? The thing with Palmer went really bad, but eh. These things do happen!"

* "Should I include Eunice's birthday card and Bathroom Reader in my knapsack for tomorrow? She might be at church even if hairdressing school stresses her out, seeing as it's Easter! Hey, if she IS there, I can give her Eddie's stuff too! I tried calling her, but she wasn't answering the house phone OR her cell phone... oh well."

* "... hey! Teunis and Eunice rhyme! Sorta... heh."

* "Will it be believable to Joe if I tell him that my birthday card for him this year has been residing at home / in my knapsack for three weeks? I don't know why I haven't included him on my birthday list in previous years, especially since I've known of his birthday for a long time and see him a LOT at church? Maybe, maybe not... oh well, on the list he goes!"

* "Shoot... I knew I should have prepared Tracy's birthday card LAST week instead of now! Alan's probably in Ohio or something NOW! Ah well, maybe I can give it to him when he gets back... hahaha."

* "Heh... I promised Corey the most insane card out of the batch I got since he was wondering what planet I lived on if it wasn't Earth. All I did was ask whether I lived in his world because he assumed I had lots of print credits at his school's print lab. He'll get the card, too! It has a diapered baby on the front with a 'Happy Birthday'... on the inside, it says: 'I just made you a little present.' That'll teach him, haha. At least it's not a devil like this year's card was: lots of money to fulfill his every greedy desire, indeed! That's the one I'm giving David this year, heh heh... not that I want to corrupt a kid's mind or anything!"

* "Is it okay to put virtually the same thing in the Easter Baptism cards I have for Chris, Danny, and Benedict? I swear, I have like NO originality! Oh well, I think it'll be fine. Awana and Easter Baptisms apply to them ALL, and I don't know what else to put..."

Sleep, toothpaste, French, spending, and quizzes

Thank goodness there's no Awana today because of Easter weekend, because I got up at 3:50 PM! Let's just say that if I got up at that time any other Saturday, Sam would really be wondering where I'd got to!

As I was changing my toothpaste because the lid of the old tube fell into the sink (eww), I noticed the French side said Renforce l'émail. Yes, of course I still sorta know a fair bit of French thanks to school, but you can guess what the first thing I thought of was, heh. (it's really "Reinforces enamel")

I've also figured out where the holes in my spending have been in the last couple of months. Let's just say that it's a good thing those aren't monthly expenses and leave it at that, mmkay? :P (yes, I am working on it... no worries...)

You scored as New School Punk. New School punk happened when image became more important than substance to punk fans. Sporting a multi-colored mohawk and safety pins became synonymous with being "punk rock" although Old School Punk was, in actuality, backlash against the social and political issues of the late 70's and early 80's. New School Punk had all of the anger, but none of the justification.

30-Hour Famine, skunks, Good Friday, food, hockey memories, 1994 Stanley Cup run and riot

After Steph and Ivan picked me up, we went to pick YoYo up. She asked what we'd done today: Ivan had gone to the morning Chinese Good Friday service (which he said was effective), while my sister and I had just slept a lot. (Steph didn't wake up till Mom called, surprised that she was still in bed!) I told them the story of how my friend Jason had gone running and had a skunk spray his car... EW GROSS! We bemoaned the Canucks' fate this season, although they didn't deserve to get into the playoffs anyhow. Steph and I tried not to mention food around the other two, but failed... then again, YoYo had been to Richmond Centre today with a friend AND in the food court! (she'll get her friend back next week during HER 30-Hour Famine, ha ha)

The Good Friday service itself was nice... I played with baby Megan, and finally got Rosenda's birthday, hee hee. (Aug. 6) Talked to some of the teens going through the 30-Hour Famine, and of course they were hungry! Vivian's sister is leaving for France on Thursday, and she's excited about that! She's finished her exams, but of course there's the parental desires around cleaning the house to field. Ah well, not much to do about that! Olivia wanted Margaret to run in her flip-flops since it looked funny... I think those teens will have a very interesting time tonight! Singing, drumming, piano playing, being madcap and hyper: anything to distract them from food!

Eric said he'd give me a ride home, but had to do some stuff first. Our of respect for the teens, he ate some Subway and I ate some fruit snacks in the back of the sanctuary. We were going to leave, but Phil was blocking us. When we came back to look for Phil, Cordia bugged Eric about bringing food inside even though she wasn't doing the 30-Hour-Famine! Eric said that it was okay since Darren had already smelled it! On the way home, we listened to Sportstalk reminiscing about NHL hockey in Vancouver. It's their last week ever doing Vancouver Canucks hockey on NW, since it's now moved to MOJO AM 730. Man, that Game 6 in Vancouver in 1994 was HUGE since it gave us a chance to win the Stanley Cup in Madison Square Garden against the Rangers! But we didn't, which sparked a riot. Eric bugged me about criminal activities involving my butt (you don't want to know!), and said that he could give me and my sister a ride home on Sunday. That sounds good since she has YoYo's baptism to attend in Richmond, and I don't want to be stuck at church till 5 with the other baptisms going on!

Right now, Corey's bugging me about being drunk since I sent him a typo-filled message about barrels of monkeys. I swear, my fingers are cooperating less lately... GRR. Speaking of food, it's time to eat some spicy chicken noodles and then do some overdue community management. :D

YoYo and Ivan, getting banned from two communities, quizzes

My sister got on MSN to say that I had to be ready by 6:55. She's also picking up Ivan and some girl named YoYo... I think Emily was handing out her baptism invitations last week, so that's why that name sounds familiar. She said that Eric was already at church, for my information. Fine with me... at least I'm reasonably awake, and have finished the project which has consumed my time for the past month. :D

Apparently, I've been banned from commenting in Quiz Galaxy AND Quiz Universe on LJ... what the heck is up with that?! I have other ways of getting around it, but I dunno... I left a couple of inquiring comments as my alterego, and then deleted them off my friends list. Might as well just do that... what's the point of having them on there if you can't comment, right?

Belinda's shower, Matt and the CD, Self-Esteem, and other things

I checked my email to find that Helen K. had recruited Lesley to email the Fellowship with a message for the girls. Apparently, Belinda's getting married to Clive (who I met over Christmas) in early May. Her friends in Toronto are putting together a scrapbook for her bridal shower, and she thinks Belinda will be really surprised to see pages from Vancouver in there. That may be, but I'm not sure I have anything to contribute to such a page... no photo, no real messages or advice! Besides, the shower is the 29th... that doesn't really leave much time for people to do stuff. Ah well, I do wish her luck... maybe a 6x6 page of memories and such, but that might not be a good idea. :P

Then Matt emailed me to see if I got his letter. Of course I did... check your mail, dude. :P Honestly, if a birthday card (Farrah!) can get to a certain area of California within a few days, a CD can make it to another area of California in that time frame! Aiyoh. :P

As of now, I have had 15 hours of sleep in the last 24... and feel like sleeping again! Yay me. :P

You Have Low Self-Esteem 72% of the Time

You tend to blame yourself when things go wrong, regardless of whether it's your fault or not.
You're anxious to please others and rely too much on their opinions. Learn to please yourself first, and your confidence will soar.

This quiz reminds me of the Offspring song. :D

You scored 57 Equality, 57 Liberty, and 78 Stability!

You feel that all three principles are important. You take some interest in politics and definitely have opinions. However, those opinions may be formed on a case-by-case basis because you lack an overriding commitment to any of the principles. You may sometimes get confused by complex political issues because you can be persuaded by different arguments. Moderates like yourself are important in mediating between others in a parliamentary democracy. If you get involved in politics, then you may well be working alongside Conservatives or Liberals or Socialists, depending on your inclinations and circumstances.

You are obviously a well-spoken, intelligent individual. You only missed from 20 to 11 words. You're definitely a cut above the majority.

Business Minded
Awwww, you did it. You deserve a cookie! 54!

You are the perfectionist, the organizer, the dictator. If there's an answer, you will find it. Even if it is not the right answer, you will enforce it and nobody will question you. A great mind, but not always great for the home life... where you excel in one thing, you tend to suffer in another.
