Math camp T-shirts, ice cream, quizzes

Sam picked me up at 3:40, and we were on our way. We discussed the "squid testicles" story that he was privileged enough to hear from Steph last night, as well as their Bible Study ending really late since they started at 9:30. When we got to church, I talked to Margaret, who said that she would be joining Awana next year to help out: that sounds good! I gave Amos a birthday card, and talked to his brother Jason some more while we did stuff with felts and pencil crayons. Chris brought math club T-shirts for Mike and Joey: "Talk nerdy to me" and "Two's company, ? is a crowd" are interesting slogans! Sam said that he had a family dinner thing, and apologized: luckily, Auntie Rebecca was still around, so she kindly drove me home. We had a nice chat about Pho, her kids Tim and Genevieve, Shanghai Wind and my friends' escapades there, Jon (no, he doesn't have a girlfriend that I know of!), how I got around to church and such (Sam / Eric / parents), Steph and her job, Eric and how he got to know our family / go to our church, graduation, and Fellowship. I should actually call Eric in a couple of hours to remind him to pick me up tomorrow. ;)

Before that, I went to the 7-11 near the church and bought Fossil Fuel and Half-Baked under the mistaken impression that I could bring it on Tuesday night to the townhouse. They had Tortoise Soup there, but I'm not sure I like too many nuts in my ice cream. :P After leaving, I realized that I wouldn't be hauling that around all afternoon / evening on the bus since it would melt. At least I've established that 7-11 does carry Ben and Jerry's, so I can buy more on Tuesday night just before I get there for dinner with Steph and Vivian S. Yeah, I know... I spend way too much money on stuff like ice cream and books (that's what it was last year), but at least it's not hard drugs or anything like that! :P

In which a CD is utterly destroyed by torture...

I caught up on blogs: Phil has crazy picture booth photos with him and his girlfriend, and crazy Sonic drive-in pictures. Gotta love the insanity you can get up to in photo booths... ah, good times. :D Jon had a post about graduation and memories: stuffing yourself silly at breakfast is NOT a good thing especially if you can't handle it anymore, haha. (sounds like me, actually) There was some girl sitting next to him at grad who also did her undergrad degree at UBC, lived in the same suburb (Richmond), and also went to the same incentive high school (Grades 8-10) as our younger sister! Very appropriate, considering the number of Vancouverites he's met in Toronto over the past 22 months...

Spoz had posts about CD reviews (Go! Team, Datarock, and The Knife), plus a post about CD #666 and destroying it... it's so funny that I have to reproduce it here.


hiya peeps! a few weeks ago or so.. some of you dribbling baboons may've remembered me mentioning that.. after many years of hunting and gathering throughout the many record stores in this deadend a*seclown city, I'd finally amassed 665 CDs in my music collection.. leaving me one CD shy of 666 CDs.. the music collection of the beast (and you may've also remembered that crazy Satan animation that accompanied that particular blog post.. yeah.. y'know the one? the one that caused all manner of violent seizures and a flood of angry complaints to arrive in my email inbox? yeah.. those were the days, huh? good times.. goooood times :)

anyhoo.. the question came up as to what I should do for such a momentous occasion, since it's not every day your CD collection may possibly spawn the coming of the musical antichrist.. how should I pay homage? or better yet.. pay homage in such a way as to prevent an impending apocalypse and death to all my CD kind?

most of the suggestions given to me were along the lines of the obvious and cliche.. ie: I should go out and buy a suitably Satanic deathmetal CD.. something maybe along the lines of SLAYER, CANNIBAL CORPSE, MEGADETH, NAPALM DEATH (yeah, you can tell I really don't know me death metal, huh?) or maybe even a CD from those lunatic LORD OF THE RINGS rejects who won this year's EUROVISION contest, LORDI.. coz that sh*t would be really f*cked up..

but instead of that, I had a much sillier idea to find me a sacrifical CD to destroy on this day, the devil's day.. Tuesday the 6th of June, 2006 (6/6/06)

so, last Friday I hit JB's.. went looking thru the TOP 40 singles shelf and picked up one of the most obnoxious pieces of commercialist filth that $5 could buy..

yup, here we have a CD single featuring the infamous IZZY from NEIGHBOURS (yet ANOTHER freaking soapie star who thinks she can sing) performing with an utterly a*se-raping fascimile of a pop-punk electroclash act, the ROGUE TRADERS.. here to present us with their horrendous single WATCHING YOU.. arguably the WORST song ever to rape a signature 80's riff (this time stolen from THE KNACKS' MY SHARONA) since, well.. the last song to sample an 80's riff to try and sound cool (ie: pretty much EVERY top 40 d*ckhead anthem in the charts of late.. including that retarded song out from the UK recently ripping off BLUE MONDAY by NEW ORDER.. ack!)

and sure, I could've aimed for something by ASHLEE SIMPSON or the PUSSYCAT DOLLS instead.. but, wot the hey, I like to buy local :)

(oh, and you'd best familiarise yourself with those top 3 photos.. coz, we're about to inflict a whole WORLD of PAIN on this single.. oooooh, yes... OH YES, WE WILL :)

so, to start today's proceedings.. let's go for the KITCHEN KNIFE..

and sure.. this may only be ceremonial in its capability for carnage on something as inanimate as a CD single.. but DAMN, is it still fun to have at it anywaze ;)


damn.. I could've taken an eye out with one of these pieces..

just so the damage isn't being unevenly distributed here, I flip it over to the other side and kill it some more.. KILL! KILL! KILL!! AAAAUAUUAUAAAAGGGHH!!

the knife's done all it could've and I'm proud of its handiwork, but it's time to kick things up a notch..

so, time to bring the next instrument into play.. the HAMMER! :)


oooo.. look at da pretty chunks :)

hmmmm.. the hammer's not terribly accurate, now is it? (wot with me trying to bash the CD in one hand and take photos with the other) so lets try hitting it when it's standing upright, shall we?

uh oh.. do ya think it'll still play? ;)

obviously, we haven't nearly done enough here.. so it's time to bring in the next instrument of destruction.. THE MALLET!


damn.. I really thought that would've done more..

so, time then for the NEXT instrument..

presenting, the MORTAR and PESTLE!

(if only I could fit all the bits in the bowl?)

now THIS is wot I call a DJ "MASHUP" :)

do ya think this would make a nice mulch for the garden?

meanwhile, I've noticed the cover art has somehow slipped thru all my methods to destroy it.. so, I take it inside and let the kitchen stove play havoc on it..

*cough* damn, this makes for some messy cooking..

and thus, this here most damned CD hath been brought to foul and smelly ruination!

makes you kinda feel proud now, doesn't it? :)

oh and just because you're sacrificing your most unholy 666th CD sacrifice on the devil's day 6/6/06 doesn't mean you shouldn't act responsible for your acts of violence..


thus ending wot might just be the BEST $5 I ever spent and cleansing my CD collection from evil spirits in the process.. aaaaaaaah :)

and who knows? perhaps I've stumbled upon a genius method to turn the tide on flagging CD sale profits worldwide.. coz hey, who WOULDN'T wanna destroy one of these f*cked up TOP 40 CDs? all this fun for only $5? f*ck.. they'd be lining up for miles for this (mental note: must patent this plan before anyone else does.. this sh*t would make me a freakin' millionaire.. OOOOOOYEAAAH!!)

comments? thoughts? CD requests? ;)

HAHAHAHAHA! Oddly enough, I had a dream last night about a bunch of people being possessed by midget birds flying at us... no, I haven't watched Charmed or The Birds lately (or at all), so I don't know what's up with that! I was also trying to organize my Christmas / special occasion cards in the dream: the room had a white slat closet. Very odd...

Rides, Resonate, eating chips in the washroom

Note: LJ Puddin's blogquiz, by Puddinchan.

Tracie sent me some X-rated riddles, which I won't reproduce here. :P

I talked to Steph and Eric about used cars, and people who wanted their cars to be all tricked out with fridges and such. What's the point?! According to my sister, I'd already asked her on Sunday about whether she'd tried Ben and Jerry's... I don't remember that! We also talked about Sunday plans... 9:05 it is since he has to lead worship, and I hope he doesn't forget. (I'll call him tomorrow night after Awana to remind him, heh) Steph shared both parental hilarity stories ("tentacles" / "sleeveless") with Eric, who got a laugh out of them. On the way into church, we saw Vivian and Karen, and talked to them for a while.

Eric gave my bowl back to me during worship, and I talked to Benny for a minute afterwards... I'd like to talk to him more, but there's always time later! Sam can pick me up tomorrow, which is fine with me... I gave Alan his late birthday card (only because I haven't seen him around) during the announcements: he thanked me and said it was cute. (there was a drinking reference on there, haha: "I'd like to wish you a happy birthday, and I'm not just saying it because I've had a few!") I gave Andrea a birthday card for her brother Sherman: she thinks I'm so sweet, when she knows this is what I do... it's nice to be appreciated, though! My Bible Study talked about Paul's stance on marriage, which is actually quite interesting. Afterwards, Vivian asked me about how Bible Study / Fellowship usually are, and noted that we'd forgotten to talk about the Bible Study outing at the end of the month: there's always email for that, haha.

We ended pretty early, so I was fighting urges to go to the 7-11 and buy stuff... I talked to Jeremy for a while, learning that he's going sailing tomorrow. Lesley was surprised to learn that he'd biked up the Grouse Grind... haha, I heard about that from Jon! I saw a group of girls from the Chinese Congregation fellowship eating Lays sour cream and onion chips in the washroom: as Vivian said, that was quite strange! On my trip upstairs to see what was going on with the Chinese kiddies, there was one person whom I didn't know that waved at me... okay, then! Eric T.'s dad and brother came downstairs to clean stuff up and do janitorial work: later, Nai Chiu and Ada asked if we'd seen them. Since we hadn't, they got Joe's keys to do something. Eric M. said that I was a good decoy since I said that I had seen "Eric's dad"... he is not the only definitive Eric, despite what he jokingly thinks!

Dylan wanted us to go to Oscar's with him, Lesley, some other girl, Connie, Chung, and Terry: Vivian eventually elected to go, but Eric and I had to wait for Steph. We found it kinda weird that Dylan said that we could go and just leave Steph there: uh, no... we like to CONFIRM with people first! Dylan hates Mapquest and Richmond, since he was driving on this one stretch of road right near where I live for like an hour trying to find a chapel where he has to be tomorrow for Scripture reading at a wedding. What can we say... Mapquest is on crack! Joe and Daniel said they'd drive her to Oscar's or anywhere, but it wasnt't that simple since she had the car keys! (usually Eric drives, but not tonight!) We ended up waiting for Steph till almost 11, so we went home afterwards after talking to Fidela / Janette / Vania / Danielle / Christon. (we also had to listen to Citrus, Benny, and Anthony discuss paintball... oh joy! :P)

Joe and Daniel discussed their vision for the post-grad group with us, which has undergone another name change: RESONATE sounds better than FREEFALLING, heh. It's good to get certain people out for it because they're not getting what they need out of the pre-existing groups... people do "go missing and end up lost," after all. Maybe if everyone comes out for the worship (even in David Fellowship), it'll be good. We'll see, since they're starting in August!

On the way home, I told my sister to make sure Vivian S. was there on Tuesday, since I'd probably be game for dinner that night. She pressed for something more definite since Mom made pasta, or she could get stuff from Yaohan, so I guess it's definite now. I could go over there earlier, but then I have plans with Nina at 4 in Burnaby... who knows about the buses? It'll remain to be seen whether I can take that much company / social time. Although I'm sure I can do it if I need to, I'm not sure whether I'll hold up. At least I'll get dinner and a ride home afterwards... note to self: go to 7-11 near townhouse and see if they have Ben and Jerry's so I can introduce the girls to it. If not, some other kind might do, haha. (not that I told her I'm bringing ice cream, but we'll see)

Dreams of backflips in McDonalds, freedom, quizzes

I had a weird dream that involved me and a group of my friends doing backflips through a fairly crowded two-storey McDonalds restaurant. o_O There was some setup to that, which involved us all being in a tiny room while being lectured by someone about going into other rooms and destroying property. After the backflips, we went and knocked on someone's door... we were told that she was watching test patterns on TV, but we could come in if we liked. Very strange...

All right, time to take a shower and then leave. When our parents are away, it gives us more freedom. ;)

Edit: Never mind, I just missed the bus... I hate when that happens! I've convinced my sister to pick me up instead. I have food here unlike what she thinks: Santa Fe wheatberry salad, here I come! :D

I got another white diamond in Bookworm just now by using two blue tiles on the word "jut," and I used the white diamond on the word "wig."
