Rage, rewriting, and quizzes on snobbery and life experience

Okay, I've had a chance to catch up on whatever's been written in blogs for the past week. Dawn says she's usually a reasonable person and nobody's ever really seen her truly angry (except for her roomie and family!)... that said, she really shouldn't have to wait TWO FREAKIN' HOURS for a non-existent taxi around here! She knows that job hunting can be stressful, but that's not a reason to just snap at any second just because she hasn't been out for one night. Hopefully, she used her rage to get someone at Blacktop and Checker Taxis FIRED!

Dave doesn't like the agony of sitting through group rewriting and having his precious paper / paragraphs dissected, even though he knows it'll be better in the long run. He also feels like a hamster on a wheel, so wanted his ice cream that he'd been saving till his project's over... might as well enjoy it now! Vivian has a "10 to 1" survey that I've probably done before, a few sentences about gossip / drama / recycling blog material elsewhere (as unreasonable as her anger might seem about that), and a cute PEARLS BEFORE SWINE comic. Spoz has his normal weekender chronicles: homicidal finger puppets, indeed. He also has a bit about Adelaide: churches, serial killers, decrimalized pot, deranged football (soccer) fans, medieval shopping hours, vampires, and such. Lots of lovely photos, too... including Kempy "subtly" showing off his tattoo.

Jon just called to get me and Eric to buy four limes on Dallas' behalf... sure thing! He's still at the PNE and has to bus to Phil's, and Eric's cell isn't on. According to his parents, he just left... boy, Jon was surprised to hear "5:50" from me as the time Eric would pick me up. Maybe he has other things to do before then, since it was 5:06 when he called me and I still picked up the phone! All right, enough time spent farting about on here... time to take a shower before I leave!

You've Experienced 44% of Life

You have a good deal of life experience, about as much as someone in their late 20s.
You've seen and done enough to be quite wise, but you still have a lot of life to look forward to.

You Are A Little Snobby

And being a little snobby every once in a while is totally allowed.
Because if no one was ever snobby, no one would ever try to dress up or look pretty.
And while you do enjoy the finest things in life (that you can afford), you tire of superficiality.
You know there's more to life than what's just on the surface.

Dream: Drugs in statues and smoking it up on the balcony?

I had a weird dream that involved me and a bunch of my friends at a church banquet in a restaurant. While there, some of us got a mysterious call from one of our other associates to meet him at a graveyard ASAP. So we all hightailed it out of the restaurant to our huge van. We all got settled in, even eating food off our blue and white china plates from the restaurant! As we drove, we looked at maps and tried to remember where the closest graveyard was: someone mentioned Knight / 49th, so we headed there. Then Eric mentioned that there was a hill near Nathan's house which led to a little cemetery, so we changed direction and headed toward Broadway / Commercial. (24-hour Shoppers Drug Mart / Skytrain station / Red Robins [on Broadway / Oak in real life])

We got lost in a maze of residential side streets, and were trying to find an exit when we realized that we should probably have this on film. Fidela and Citrus offered to whip out their digicams with extensions and film some of it, so we let them out of the car. It was comedy which followed, as two of the four exits we COULD use were being blocked: one by wooden planks, and the other (which wasn't blocked when we saw the first exit) by a cable company featuring police / construction workers in rather bright orange and yellow uniforms. Somehow, Eric let ME navigate: for some reason, I was much better at this than I am in real life, so I got everyone out of there quickly after I let Fidela and Citrus back into the van.

After that, we heard about a statue in an apartment building with drugs in it that our associate wanted us to procure. We met our associate at this richly-appointed building, which I thought I'd been to before. It had gold railings and red velvet couches, and just looked very nice with the marble flooring! So we took the elevator up a few floors, and then took the long way around to an apartment. On the way there, we saw various shops with colorful bracelets / necklaces / coats / clothing for sale. Once we were at this apartment, our associate pounded on the door to no avail. He cursed, wrote a note, and stuck it on the door: "IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE OUT AT THE TIME THAT MY ASSOCIATES AND I SHOW UP TO SEE THIS STATUE, THERE WILL BE DIRE CONSEQUENCES!"

Then we were free to go: I saw a washed-out version of Auntie Helen (Bryant's mom) getting ready to smoke a bowl with one of my other friends on the apartment's balcony. I checked out the colorful accessories in the shops: Eunice's mom was the owner of one of them. Those necklaces looked pretty, even if the display was in a hybrid of English and French! Then I went back to the balcony, interested in what they were doing. I took a "menu" of what was available as far as pot / hookah flavors went. The dream ended when I was perusing the menu: it was beige, and had light black capital letters as its font. It even had a picture of a chef bearing things on a tray under a round silver cover! If this is what happens to me on (red) Nyquil, I'm not sure I want it anymore! o_O

Encyclopedia Dramatica and furries / Ben & Jerry's Fresh Georgia Peach Ice Cream

Note: LJ Battle Royale Weapons Assignment blogquiz, by Luke.

Thank goodness for autosaves! :D

I said it a couple of entries ago, and I'll say it again with more emphasis: CosmicJohn is seriously annoying, and needs to DIE NOW. In response to my spelling / grammar corrections (or anything!) in an LJ News post, he's posted pictures of gruesome murder scenes and furries engaged in graphic sex, among other such trash. (see Page 2 onwards... I ain't linking that stuff here!) Uh yeah, I don't need to look at that! (I remember a time when I inadvertently linked to Goatse in a news post, but that was when I wanted to know what was behind a link that Corey had sent me... I'm not as immature as that other dude is!)

I got at least 26 of those comments tonight, so I did the smart thing and deleted them without responding... that's what they want, after all. I'm sure as heck not going to respond to the insults and screenshots, especially if they feature some screenshots of an article on me in Encyclopedia Dramatica! Apparently, Corey has removed it and edited the profiles of both people that made / edited said article. Of course, he figures they'll change it back as soon as they notice... I agree! (yup, they reverted it a mere eight minutes later...)

In other news, I called Jon and Eric earlier tonight. The first time, Jon said to call back later since they had too much stuff going on at the moment: insisting that people from my group WERE there tonight, figuring out who was going to Dragon Ball, thinking that I needed to wash my hair / get a new landline phone for my bedroom, talking to people in general, trying to NOT let me get stranded tomorrow, etc.

So then I called them back about half an hour later, when they were finally at Dragon Ball. Jon said that he'd seen Karen Choo during worship, but he had no idea what she'd done afterwards. He'll be stranded without a car tomorrow, so he said I could count on Eric. Eric insisted that Randal was a part of my group and was there tonight (he's helping with one of the other groups now, which is why!), and also that I didn't show up even when he called me earlier. (NO MEANS NO, dude...) At any rate, he said that he'd pick me up around 5:50 in the afternoon to go to Phil's for Korean food... I'll turn my phone on after I get up, for sure!

Ben & Jerry's Fresh Georgia Peach Ice Cream

Recipe By:
Serving Size: 1 Preparation Time: 0:00
Categories: Desserts, Fruits, Copycat

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

2 cups ripe peaches -- finely chopped
1 1/4 cups Sugar
1/2 Juice of lemon
2 large Eggs
2 cups Heavy or whipping cream
1 cup Milk

This is the best way to capture the elusive flavor of summertime. Ben and Jerry prefer small peaches because they have more flavor and less water than the larger ones. Combine the peaches, 1/2 cup of the sugar, and the lemon juice in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, stirring the mixture every 30 minutes. Remove the peaches from the refrigerator and drain the juice into another bowl. Return the peaches to the refrigerator. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl for 1-2 minutes until light and fluffy. Whisk in the remaining 3/4 cup sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend. Add the peach juice and blend. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following manufacturer's instructions. After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done) add the peaches, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready. Makes 1 generous quart.

Trillian, more cruising, Grandma, sticky candy and fillings, Crash Test Dummies

I didn't know I wasn't on Trillian for much of the day till I just noticed it a while ago. Ah well, it helped with staying home.. no messages, yay! Just talked to my mom, who wants to take me on some cruise to San Diego in late September: apparently, it's to celebrate my milestone birthday. (according to my sister, I won't admit that I enjoyed the Alaskan cruise last year... whatever!) I don't know about that, but maybe if she gets the days off and the sale prices (we're Asian!)... she also wants me to move in with my sister if she gets her own house, to help her with the mortgage. Uh, I only have a limited amount of money every month, so I dunno. Not sure I'd want to give up living on my own, either... ah, independence!

Then she said she talked to my grandma earlier today, who may be coming home earlier than expected. (apparently, she wants to live downstairs in late September or whenever the eye specialist clears her for a return home here) Mom referred to Big G as "86 and a half"... I thought you stopped referring to people that way when they're around 10?

Corey and I are having a discussion about how his Screaming Yellow Zonkers / Fiddle Faddle turned out yesterday:

[20:03:25] Flami: All hail sparkly socks!: so, how did the candy-making go last night?
[21:25:22] Corey: uh, it tastes pretty good, but it's sticky as hell, it just sticks to your teeth really hard when you chew it at all :P so you can eat it if you kind of mash it up in your mouth and then spend a long time with your tongue trying to get it off your teeth :P

my mom claims that making candy isn't easy here due to the altitude
[21:27:48] Flami: right... the mile-high altitude there might have something to do with it
[21:28:10] Corey: that, or I didn't have it at the "hard ball stage" when I thought it did :P probably a little of both
[21:28:35] Corey: it tastes fine.. it'll just pull your fillings out if you eat it :P maybe it'll pull your TEETH out :P
[21:33:01] Flami: I'll take your word for it :P
[21:33:16] Flami: I have a matching filling that I don't want to get yanked out :P
[21:43:44] Corey: if you ever do, try pliers
[21:47:36] Flami: haha... this reminds me of the Crash Test Dummies song
[21:52:02] Corey: doesn't sound familiar to me

Heh, I loved this song... the video was interesting, too. I remember having a discussion about it with snooooopy years ago. :D

Artist: Crash Test Dummies
Album: A Worm's Life
Title: He Liked To Feel It

There was a boy
Who liked to wiggle his tooth loose so he could show it
And then we'd watch
While he would tie it to a doorknob, wind up, and then slam it

And that was how he liked to have his teeth pulled out
He told us how he liked to feel it when it came out

But he grew tired
Of using doorknobs, and so he thought up a brand-new trick
He said he'd tie
His tooth to his dog's tail, find a stick, wind up, and then throw it

And that was how he liked to have his teeth pulled out
He told us how he liked to feel it when it came out

He called his dog
But just as he was set to go, his dad arrived there
He yelled at him
Then got some pliers, held him, wound up, and yanked it out right there

That wasn't how he liked to have his teeth pulled out
He wouldn't tell us how it felt when it came out

Bowling expense, taking Hugh Grant prisoner and stopping the Matrix, quirky names, future living

I've just been reminded of another reason why I shouldn't go to the bowling night next week: it costs at least $15, which I don't see as a good investment if I'm not going to be good at the game! Thank you, Dylan and the Evite!

I had a nap, and had a weird dream that my sister was taking Hugh Grant's mind, and stopped the Matrix from happening at the very last second by fiddling with dials on a newspaper box. Apparently, we all went to a dark red movie theatre and imprisoned Hugh Grant in a clear box to take with us somewhere... very odd. o_O

I think I wouldn't mind having the name Pristina. Met a little girl with that name years ago, and it always struck me as quirky. Then again, I also met little girls named Fresnona in Awana (her dad was named Fresno... ah, Asian people!) and Fedora in the toddler Sunday School... I dunno if Elena would fit my last name, however! Those names remind me of Winnie, Jenny, and Connie's German-Chinese cousin Felina... and of this girl named Faustine Derrose that I used to know in elementary school. Cool names! (I also remember this kid named Jed in the toddler Sunday School, this girl named Dara from the same place many years ago, and Phil's Trinity friend Alpha!)

If You Were Born in 2893...

Your Name Would Be: Umoro Iara

And You Would Be: A Demi-God

Yay, my life's ambition realized! :D
Too bad I have to wait YEARS for it, though... =/

Not running out of stickers, more birthday card coincidences

I'm surprised that I managed to not run out of stickers while preparing the birthday cards I got yesterday with (part of) 20 sticker sheets! They're not all full-size stickers, but at least the mini-stickers have their uses! Speaking of old favorites being bought again, I noticed that the birthday card I have for Margaret K. this year is the same one as what I have for Vivian S. next year: it's muted yellow, two light shades of green, and features script / balloons / flowers / a slice of cake in gold. The blurb reads: "Happy Birthday! Your birthday is so many things... but most of all, it's something wonderful because it's meant for you! Have a wonderful day!"

I also managed to not hang out with my mom (I used a rather incontrovertible excuse), and got a grocery shopping appointment for Tuesday at 1 PM... am I good, or what? Hey, I just noticed that the cards I bought for Chung this year and Sabrina in 2008 are the same! They feature a kitchen with typical accessories (pie, oven mitts, flowers, utensils, logs), and the inside reads: "May good old-fashioned warmth and joy combine with sweet delight to make each moment of your day turn out exactly right! Happy Birthday!" Turns out the cards I bought for Hien this year and Darren M. next year are the same, too: the blue card features a picture of martinis, birthday cake, and forks. It says "A birthday toast and best wishes, too... [on inside] ...for an incredible, wonderful, get-to-know-you! Happy Birthday!"

The "you're only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely!" card (featuring an animal eating birthday cake) is the same for Sabrina in 2007 and Margaret K. in the same year. There are a bunch of other ones that are the same, yay! (like the balloons one for Esther and a spare one with the same design, plus the purple and green blocks one for Jason and Christon) Heh, I love these coincidences.. and I'll stop going on about them (for) now!

Waking up too early (again), beer / age / drunk dogs / light / devil with trident

I don't know why I'm up this early, particularly since I attempted to get some sleep at 2:30 while Corey was making Fiddle Faddle and Screaming Yellow Zonkers from the 300 recipes. He wanted me to suggest something simple that he could make in the middle of the night from what he had on hand. So I suggested KFC mashed potatoes: he wasn't too impressed, and said he was making candy instead. Fine by me!

While I'm here, I might as well say that I love how varied the cards are at the places where I get them. There are old favorites, which I recognize and buy at least once a year... I have this thing where every card I buy has to be different, unless there are no other alternatives in the card display. Nathan's card last year was one featuring three dogs (that looked DRUNK on SLB) with party streamers and noisemakers ("AWESOME"): that design will go to Sheena.

Teunis' yellow card last year featured some dude with a black mask by a birthday cake: "DO NOT LOOK INTO THE LIGHT! Didn't want to risk blinding you with your birthday cake! Happy Birthday!" That design will go to Rich even though he's only a year older than I am, haha. Corey's orange-and-green card last year featured the devil with a silver trident and a lot of money: "I shall fill this card with heaps of cash to feed your every greedy desire! [on inside] On second thought, you're far too sweet to succumb to temptation! Just have a really happy birthday!" Heh... that design will go to Nina!

Oh, and I also got "beer and age" cards for Jon and Jeremy: I think I'll alternate the years on this one, heh. This one features great drawings of a boy / man throughout life, and features musings about beer: "Age 7: What's a beer? Age 17: I wish someone would buy me a beer. Age 27: I love beer! Age 37: I prefer wine over beer! Age 67: These crazy kids and their beer. Age 97: What's a beer? Your birthday's here, so have a - well, you know... Enjoy!" Then on the back, there's a drawing of a grave: THAT features the dead guy thinking "I could go for a beer..." Hahaha, that card is perfect for those two! :D (even though I feel as if I've spent too much money already, as per usual when I go out... eepers!)

At least I can play Bookworm while I wait for a suitable time to call certain people...

No Bible Study means I'm not going, people! / Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Cake

I called Jon (and Eric by extension since they were together) for a while earlier tonight. We discussed TMI, jokes about said TMI, plans for tomorrow, production, Eric's birthday card and gift, paying him back instead of Dallas since Jon paid on my behalf, paying Nathan back, people needing to bring Korean side dishes (fried mackerel / kimchi / sprouts / other stuff) to Phil's on Saturday / where the Korean supermarkets were around here, transportation issues, and Eric trying to alert another driver to the fact that his lights were off. Apparently, Eric wants to pick me up at 7:05 tomorrow... that would be fine with me except that I checked my email right after I got off the phone, and I then discovered that there was NO Bible Study for our small group due to low attendance confirmation.

Of course, I had to call them right back and let them know that I wasn't going / didn't need a ride. After asking me who was in the group and saying that Eric had seen members of my group around at previous times when there was no Bible Study for ours, Jon characterized Ivan / Karen / Vivian / Kevin / Billy / me as "so lame!" and suggested that I join another group in order to learn more about God, and shake things up. ("you can give them the full extent of your cackle!") Then he suggested that I go to the Daniel barbecue at Nathan's, using my bus pass to get there... "you can hang out with people, and I'd love to use your bus pass since mine expires in about 18 minutes AND your name is unisex!" Dude, I'm not a social butterfly 24/7 like you are... and I DO use my bus pass for things too! Then they guessed that there was some online LJ teleconference thingy tomorrow, and THAT was why I wasn't going... uh, not to my knowledge. If I don't HAVE to go, I won't! He told me that Eric insisted on showing up at 7:05 tomorrow anyway, and that there was a strong likelihood that Dragon Ball would be included tomorrow post-Fellowship. Well, I guess he'll see that I won't be there! :P

Now Corey and I are discussing things like sex, spiderwebs, those 300 recipes in that torrent, and cleaning up. (not necessarily all related to each other!) If there's a surface that I regularly put my face on, I'd also rather not know that a dead spider was there! o_O

Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Cake

Traditional white birthday cakes are pretty boring by themselves. Scoop a little ice cream onto the plate and I'll perk up a bit. But, hey baby, bring a Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake to the party and I'll be the first one in line with a plastic fork. This 4500-unit ice cream chain stacks several varieties of pre-made ice cream cakes in its freezer, but I've discovered the most popular version, over and over again, is the one made from white cake with pralines and cream ice cream on top. So that's got to be the version we clone here. But don't think you're locked into this formula - you can use any flavor of cake and ice cream you fancy for your homemade masterpiece.

Just be sure the ice cream you choose comes in a box. It should be rectangular shape so that the ice cream layer stacks up right. Then you'll want to find a really sharp serrated knife to cut the ice cream in half while it's in the box. And check this out: That white stuff that coats the cake is actually softened ice cream spread on a thin layer like frosting, and then re-frozen. After it sets up, you can decorate the cake any way you like with pre-made frosting in whatever color suits your festive occasion. Voilà! You've just made an ice cream cake at home that looks and tastes like those in the stores that cost around 35 bucks each.

1 box white cake mix
1 1/4 cups water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 egg whites

1/2-gallon box pralines and cream ice cream
4 cups (2 pints) vanilla ice cream
1 12-ounce container white frosting

colored frosting
A sharp bread knife makes box slicing easy
Ice cream on top of the cake, and all the trimmings

1. Make your cake following the directions on the box. If you are making the white cake you will likely blend the cake mix with water, oil, and 3 eggs. Pour the batter into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. This will make a thin cake for our bottom layer. When cake is done, let it cool to room temperature.

2. When the cake has cooled, carefully remove it from the pan and place it on a wax paper-covered cookie sheet, or a platter or tray that will fit into your freezer.

3. Use a sharp serrated knife (a bread knife works great) to slice the ice cream lengthwise through the middle, box and all, so that you have two 2-inch thick sheets of ice cream. Peel the cardboard off the ice cream and lay the halves next to each other on the cake. Slice the edges of the cake all the way around so that the cake is the same size as the ice cream on top. Work quickly so that the ice cream doesn't melt. When the cake has been trimmed, place it into the freezer for an hour or two.

4. When you are ready to frost the cake, take the two pints (4 cups) of vanilla ice cream out of the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes to soften. Stir the ice cream so that it is smooth, like frosting. Use a frosting knife or spatula to coat your cake with about 2 cups of ice cream. Cover the entire surface thoroughly so that you cannot see any of the cake or ice cream underneath. Pop the cake into the freezer for an hour or so to set up.

5. When the cake has set, fill a pastry bag (with a fancy tip) with white frosting to decorate all around the top edge of the cake. Also decorate around the bottom of the cake. Use colored frosting and different tips to add inspired artistic flair and writing on the cake, as needed. Cover the cake with plastic wrap and keep it in your freezer until party time.

6. When you are ready to serve the cake, leave it out for 10 minutes before slicing. Cut the cake with a sharp knife that has been held under hot water. Makes 1 large cake (16 -20 servings).

You may wish to use another flavor cake mix such as chocolate or devil's food for this dessert - even low-fat cake mix works. It's up to you. Just follow the directions on the box for making the cake in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. You can also use any flavor of ice cream. Just be sure to get it in a box.

TMI, limit exceeded (again!), ice cream, birthday cards

Let me just say one thing first: I HATE TMI EXPERIENCES!

Oh, and I hoped that the LIMIT EXCEEDED thing would never happen to me again after the debacle of more than three years ago, but it did tonight. (I bet the Interac system was down AGAIN, not allowing me to use my Interac card!) The difference this time was that I had enough cash on me to cover my London Drugs purchases of two "beer and age" birthday cards (for Jon and Jeremy), two birthday cards for baby Benjamin (one-year-old and two-year-old), Nestlé Toll House cookie dough ice cream (apparently LOADED TO THE MAX!), three Stouffer's microwaveable meals (yay for coupons!), and Häagen-Dazs strawberry cheesecake ice cream. (good thing I didn't buy Häagen-Dazs rocky road ice cream / Stover truffles / a Whitman's sampler, among other things!) Plus, I don't have to jet right away for a dinner... I can relax and de-stress at my own pace. :D

While I was out, I also bought a bunch of letter / scrapbook stickers and 50 birthday cards from the dollar store. (all covered till February 2008!) Then I spent time in the food court prepping those 50 birthday cards with greetings and letter stickers. I discovered that my copy of the hockey Bathroom Reader was really gross on the bottom, so I have to get a new one. (seriously, it was all yellow and icky... I don't know how that happened!) Then I had the steak and shrimp in Brazilian lime sauce special from Milestones... apparently, they don't have the Kobe beef meatloaf or the white chocolate cheesecake anymore. (I didn't see those items on the menu, at least) At some point in the future, I plan to ask Anthony when his birthday is... maybe on Sunday. Maybe he has Ben's Montreal address, too... I *did* buy him cards for the next two years, heh.

Pets Gone Wild! / Purple references, elements, insecurity, sunglasses, and shoes

On the Pets Gone Wild test, I got: Hey, Dr. Doolittle! You got 8/9 correct. Yep, you're smart. Are you putting that big brain to good use? I think it was a combination of lucky AND educated guesses!

Hey, purple is one of my favorite colors! The taro BBT in this icon counts as purple. I wish I were a purple dragon, too... with a band called Purple Monkey Dishwasher! That "purple" quiz reminds me of The Color Purple, which I read a long time ago... pretty interesting stuff! (plus Purple Haze, of course)


My mom says she never went by my place or called me earlier... well, I'd certainly hope not! She offered to take me out somewhere and then have dinner at her place... I think I'm better off going out by myself, which I shall do presently. :D (maybe Milestones, definitely cards at the dollar store, maybe letter stickers there too... who knows? heh) I really don't think my pink shorts should be making a SKREEEEEEEEEEEEK sound when I pull the waistband... time to throw 'em away! o_O

Your Element Is Air

You dislike conflict, and you've been able to rise above the angst of the world.
And when things don't go your way, you know they'll blow over quickly.

Easygoing, you tend to find joy from the simple things in life.
You roll with the punches, and as a result, your life is light and cheerful.

You find it easy to adapt to most situations, and you're an open person.
With you, what you see is what you get... and people love that!

You Are Lavender

You are a sweet person with a very soft personality.
People become easily entranced with you. They seem to glow around you.
You have a quiet energy that can keep you active late into the night.
Even if you aren't the life of the party, you definitely keep the party going.

You Should Wear Wraparound Sunglasses

Ultra-cool with tons of attitude.

You Should Wear Animal Print Shoes

You have a brash personality, and you aren't afraid to wear something outrageous.

You Are Mostly Secure

In general, you feel confident and together.
But the wrong thing can happen, and all of a sudden, you're not feeling so secure.
Luckily, your insecurities don't last long... at least, not usually.

Another Sunday dinner, this time on Saturday

Hey, Jon emailed us again about another dinner... this time, it's on Saturday. Much more my speed, haha. :D

Gotta keep this short and sweet: Sunday dinner, part 3, will be held at Phil's house! Thanks, Phil! It's relatively Skytrain accessible, and I think Phil can provide directions for those coming. Oh yeah, the important thing is that the dinner will be ON SATURDAY, not Sunday! Show up at around 6:30ish?

Dallas has a burning desire to make Korean food (pork bone soup? bulgogi? dog?) so bring along lots of milk for the hot stuff.

In addition, we'd like other people to participate in making the food, whether it be buying ingredients or prepping them. We think that's one way of getting people more involved and also in building the community which we're hoping to develop here.

So if you're interested in that, email me, Dallas, or Jeremy. [Phil's address info in "Boonaby" deleted... what can I say, we Richmondites like to call it that!]

Hope to see you there,

Dreams of Corey and blue seafood menus with Jane, and sharing a conference room with Rich

I had a dream which involved sharing a room with Rich at a church Summer Conference. Never mind that this won't happen in real life (like the infamous often-broken Rule #6, haha)... this is a dream, and dreams never obey the rules of reality! We didn't do anything untoward, but left each other alone to do our own thing. There was a blue laminated menu featuring seafood / sushi, such as what you'd see in many Japanese sushi places. Corey appeared in the dream to tell me that he designed the menu: it was obvious, since he made a few references to his Taiwanese friend Jane (as "Jane Hane")!

I decided to read about people having stillbirths and miscarriages, and they were suddenly pretty real to me. Not that they appeared in the dream with us, but reading about it in the magazine just personified the bad times these women (sometimes without partners) were going through! While I was lying down on the floor reading, Clement and some of the other guys decided to show up to the room and play with a red-and-yellow toy fire engine which looked like one of the toddler Sunday School toys! I was amused, and left Rich and the guys to do their own thing.

There was a tour of the conference facilities going on at the time, which involved my mom / Ivan Choo / several other "important" people on the Conference planning committee. They were following the head of the conference venue (not connected to the conference) while she showed them various important "points of interest." The group of people passed our room, and we decided to stand out and make some noise to let them know we saw the group. That worked out well, as they were surprised for a bit before they kept on going.

Then I decided to go to the washrooms (which looked like the public showers at South Arm), where some girl kept on bugging me even though I was obviously busy with other matters! I made the mistake of saying stuff to her, because she recognized my voice and kept on with her incessant inanities. Eventually, I had to call Rich on my cell phone so he could get her out of there! The dream ended when we were all back in the room just talking, and I woke up soon afterwards. About five minutes after I woke up and was just lying in bed, I heard knocking at the window... that better not have been my parents invading my privacy again! They've been known to do that before... heck, there was this time in 2003 that I left the apartment in order to run some errands / eat out, and they were circling the apartment complex with their car! o_O (I was VERY displeased about that, let me tell you!)

Frustration and alliteration, swirls, Baskin-Robbins B.R. Blast

I had too much freakin' Firefox frustration tonight, but I'm glad it's over! (stupid tag management pages and such)... at least it provides me with lovely alliteration for you lot. :P (I'm also thinking I'd love stuff swirled into my ice cream... that would be DELICIOUS!)

Baskin-Robbins B.R. Blast

Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins' idea to franchise their ice cream stores for rapid growth was so inspired that the company's former milk shake machine salesman, Ray Kroc, adopted the technique to successfully expand his new chain of McDonald's hamburger outlets. Ice cream is this chain's staple. So this coffee drink, unlike the Frappuccino made famous by Starbucks, requires adding ice cream for a creamy texture and rich taste. If you've got a blender, you can clone either of the two varieties of this refreshing coffee beverage. For chocoholics bent on everything mocha, just add some chocolate syrup to the mix.

1 cup double-strength coffee (see Tidbits)
1 cup milk
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 heaping cup vanilla ice cream
2 cups crushed ice or ice cubes

whipped cream

1. Combine the strong coffee, milk, and sugar in a blender and mix on medium speed for 15 seconds to dissolve the sugar.
2. Add the ice cream and the ice, then blend on high speed until smooth and creamy.
3. Pour the drink into two 16-ounce glasses. If desired, add whipped cream to the top of each drink followed by a sprinkle of cinnamon. Makes 2 large drinks.

For this version, add 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup to the recipe above, and prepare as described.

Make double-strength coffee in your coffee maker by adding half the water suggested by the manufacturer. Allow coffee to chill in the refrigerator before using it in this recipe.

Tag work, birthday planning advice, Comic Sans, GJ RQ

Did a lot of work tonight involving tags, and I'm glad that's over! Asked Corey and Eric H. about what I should do for my birthday: heh, I should just say I have plans already and refuse to elaborate on them, haha. Movies after dinner sound fine by me: Beerfest does sound interesting in a cultural kind of way... I don't endorse that lifestyle at all, but it might be something to see. No bowling, as I suck royally at it, and don't need to be reminded of that fact on my birthday of all days! Corey wants me to go to a nudie bar... I'm not so sure about that suggestion! His reaction to THAT was "I don't see why not... you're pretty much saying, "Hey look, I am old and I'm not allowed to have fun anymore!" right there. Maybe you can go make a cup of tea and sit still for several hours, and talk about how to cook and clean. That would be a blast, :P" Heh, that's not what I mean, and he'd better know it! :P

Ban Comic Sans... I've seen this site around before. Not that I necessarily agree with it, but I'm just putting it here so I know where it is later should I decide to go back to it. (heh)

I've also decided to go back to GJ RQ1. Yeah, there's a lot of drama there... but I could use the boost in a certain number. ;)

Various random observations / memories about kids, Wikipedia, and multiple births

I remember kids in elementary school named Aura, Mitchell, and Sebastian. Wonder what they're doing now, heh. (I also remember a counsellor I had named Peggy, and a kid at the pool named Larisa)

After reading Facts About Multiples some more this afternoon, I've come to the conclusion that I'd definitely NOT like to have septuplets / octuplets / nonuplets / decaplets / undecaplets / duodecaplets / tridecaplets / quadecaplets / quindecaplets! (that's 7 to 15 babies / fetuses at a time!)

I've been busy creating new memories sections over the past couple of days... now Facts About Multiples and Wikipedia have been added to my ever-burgeoning list of journal memories! Certain other sections (like Weird Stuff / Corey / Other Convos / Rants / Dreams / Books / Music) have been fleshed out as well... I love my journal upkeep, as well as having the time to do it in the first place! :D

Dreams of swearing in church because of my white stepdad / Birthday planning / Quizzes

I created a new Wikipedia memory section.

I had another weird dream which involved my mom being married to a big white guy. My stepdad was apparently supposed to drive me to four different places for a continuing education class that lasted a few weeks: so much stress! It was rainy, and my mom and grandma wanted to go for lunch at a restaurant near Richmond Centre. While there, Grandma ordered some chicken / pork / sushi to take away for Stepdad. Then I waited by the bus stop for him, but he didn't show up! So then I went to church and asked if anyone there had seen him. When Jon and Jeremy heard about it, they offered to let me choose among five tunes (one being AC/DC's TNT) for them to play on guitar! That didn't really help, but the blue background and the bold purple text of the song selections did improve my mood. (two of my favorite colors!) Sheena and Chalaine hadn't seen Stepdad either, so then I let out a rather vehement exclamation of "S***!" (yes, inside the church!) since he was supposed to drive me to a class I was already LATE for! After the four of them had scolded me in love and understanding, the dream just ended. o_O

Hey, I got an email from Auntie Rebecca... I wonder what she wants. Hmm, there's another church dinner which happens to be ON MY BIRTHDAY! (a Sunday, when all I wanna do after church is sleep / chill with certain select people...) No offense, but I can PROBABLY find better things to do. Church dinners are fine (last year's volunteer appreciation dinner featured weird karaoke and stuff), but not on my birthday! That reminds me, my mom is making noises about how my next birthday will be a milestone (oh, shut up! :P)... apparently, she wants to plan something with my sister (to host here or somewhere other than the townhouse?) because I haven't made plans yet. Uh yeah, I never make plans for my birthday this early... give it a week or two! Eric was right last year, though... 30 IS making me feel much older than 29 ever really did...

But if I want to escape their insane planning (Mom + Steph = BAD FREAKS!), then I'll have to plan stuff even earlier than I'd like. Better come up with some ideas and ask the brain trust (Jon / Jeremy / Jen / Nathan / etc.) this weekend... I know that if I let THEM do stuff for me, it would defeat the point of it being MY birthday where *I* control everything! (okay, so I'm a bit TOO much of a control freak, blaaahahaha!) They won't invite some of the people that I want to be there ("You're inviting WHO from the Internet / church?! You should invite Jeremy for certain reasons!" "I love Randal since he's my favorite David person, but I dunno..."), but eh. Yeah, of course I'd invite Jeremy... but not for the reasons my mom's thinking of! Not everyone can make it out to these things, I know! (which reminds me, I need to make sure that my brother includes Jasmine on that "Sunday dinner" list.. I *know* he has a list for that because I don't think he can remember 25+ email addresses off the top of his head!)

You Are 50% Impulsive

You're quite impulsive, but you never are reckless.
You qualify as a very spontaneous person, but you still know how to honor your commitments.
And while responsibility doesn't come easy to you, having fun does!

What People Think of Your Mouth

People see you both as reserved and sweet.
You tend to be very sensitive and detail-oriented.
The smallest things can please or annoy you. You tend to be internally moody.
Perceptive and intuitive, you understand people quickly - though you usually won't tell them.

Man carrying his own twin / Oldest person dies / Weed and Metal skins / Bake and Baste Chicken

I've always been interested in the bizarre, and this story is right up my alley: Indian man had fetus in fetu... a fetus getting trapped inside its twin. What can I say, I love reading about bizarre medical conditions. :D

Here's the story in case they delete or remove it:
Aug. 23, 2006 - Sanju Bhagat's stomach was once so swollen he looked nine months pregnant and could barely breathe.

For More Information on Fetus in Fetu... no wonder this reminds me of teratomas and parasitic twins!

Living in the city of Nagpur, India, Bhagat said he'd felt self-conscious his whole life about his big belly. But one night in June 1999, his problem erupted into something much larger than cosmetic worry.

An ambulance rushed the 36-year-old farmer to the hospital. Doctors thought he might have a giant tumor, so they decided to operate and remove the source of the bulge in his belly.

"Basically, the tumor was so big that it was pressing on his diaphragm and that's why he was very breathless," said Dr. Ajay Mehta of Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai. "Because of the sheer size of the tumor, it makes it difficult [to operate]. We anticipated a lot of problems."

Mehta said that he can usually spot a tumor just after he begins an operation. But while operating on Bhagat, Mehta saw something he had never encountered. As he cut deeper into Bhagat's stomach, gallons of fluid spilled out - and then something extraordinary happened.

"To my surprise and horror, I could shake hands with somebody inside," he said. "It was a bit shocking for me."

Removing the Mutated Body

One doctor recalled that day in the operating room.

"He just put his hand inside and he said there are a lot of bones inside," she said. "First, one limb came out, then another limb came out. Then some part of genitalia, then some part of hair, some limbs, jaws, limbs, hair."

Inside Bhagat's stomach was a strange, half-formed creature that had feet and hands that were very developed. Its fingernails were quite long.

"We were horrified. We were confused and amazed," Mehta said.

A Mutated Body Within a Body

At first glance, it may look as if Bhagat had given birth. Actually, Mehta had removed the mutated body of Bhagat's twin brother from his stomach. Bhagat, they discovered, had one of the world's most bizarre medical conditions - fetus in fetu. It is an extremely rare abnormality that occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside its twin. The trapped fetus can survive as a parasite even past birth by forming an umbilical cordlike structure that leeches its twin's blood supply until it grows so large that it starts to harm the host, at which point doctors usually intervene.

According to Mehta, there are fewer than 90 cases of fetus in fetu recorded in medical literature. Fetus in fetu happens very early in a twin pregnancy, when one fetus wraps around and envelops the other. The dominant fetus grows, while the fetus that would have been its twin lives on throughout the pregnancy, feeding off its host twin like a kind of parasite. Usually, both twins die before birth from the strain of sharing a placenta.

Sometimes, however, as in Bhagat's case, the host twin survives and is delivered. What makes his case so unusual is that no one suspected Bhagat had a twin inside him for 36 years.

Bhagat said he was very much relieved after his operation. He was not interested in knowing what Mehta did to him or seeing what he had removed from his abdomen.

"He didn't want to see it because it was looking very ghastly," Mehta said.

Avoiding the Gory Details

There was no placenta inside Bhagat - the enveloped parasitic twin had connected directly to Bhagat's blood supply. Right after the surgery, Bhagat's pain and inability to breathe disappeared, and he recovered immediately.

The case may have been a medical miracle to doctors, but to Bhagat, his condition had been a source of shame and misery. All his life, people in the village where he lived had mercilessly teased him and told him he looked pregnant. Ironically, they were right in a way.

Today Bhagat is in good health and leads a normal life, but he still gets teased occasionally.

"They still ridicule him. What they say is, you went for an operation and you had the baby," Mehta said.

World's oldest person dies...

QUITO, Ecuador (AP) -- Maria Esther de Capovilla, believed to be the world's oldest person, has died at 116, her granddaughter said.

Catherine Capovilla, 46, a property manager and real estate agent in Miami, said Capovilla died Sunday at 3 AM local time in a hospital in the coastal city of Guayaquil. She died two days after coming down with pneumonia. Her funeral was planned for Monday.

Born on September 14, 1889 -- the same year as Charlie Chaplin and Adolf Hitler -- Capovilla was married in 1917 and widowed in 1949.

Robert Young, senior consultant for Gerontology for Guinness World Records, said Elizabeth Bolden of Memphis, Tennessee, now appears to be the oldest person alive.

"Guinness World Records will have to make an official announcement from London," he said. "For all practical purposes, the next oldest person is going to be presumed to be Elizabeth Bolden. She is 116, but she was born 11 months after Capovilla."

Capovilla was confirmed as the oldest living person on December 9, 2005, after her family sent details of her birth and marriage certificates to the British-based publisher. Emiliano Mercado Del Toro, of Puerto Rico, retains the title as oldest man at 114.

Three of Capovilla's five children -- Irma, Hilda, and son Anibal -- are still alive, along with 12 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren, Catherine Capovilla told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.

In her youth, Capovilla liked to embroider / paint / play piano / dance the waltz at parties, the family said.

She always ate three meals a day, and never smoked or drank hard liquor. "Only a small cup of wine with lunch and nothing more," Irma told AP last December.

For the past 20 years, Capovilla had lived with elder daughter, Hilda, and son-in-law, Martin.

Here are a couple of skins that Candy (metal) or Scarecrow (weed) would like. :D

Seaweed absorbing air, finally doing laundry past 10 PM

Note to self: Your seaweed packets (and biscuits?) absorb air even if they're inside Ziploc bags. That's why the seaweed pieces stick to each other inside each individual packet, and why they're impossible to peel apart after (say) two and a half weeks.

Hey, this is the first time I've done laundry past 10 PM here! Don't get me wrong: the old apartment management basically ROCKED, but they had these hours on the laundry room doors! While 8:30 AM to 10 PM might sound quite reasonable, what if you're a night person / out all hours? Believe me, they did enforce these hours by way of locking the door with their own key at 10 every night. Now I have a key on my keychain that's obsolete (because you can now use the front door key to get into the laundry room), but I can't take it off. (I remember that Carson had to help me and Chrystal with mine a couple years back... little kids' fingers ARE good for that kind of thing!)

The new management may be dodgy, but at least you can (presumably) do your laundry at all hours now. I tested it once by getting my laundry out of the dryer after one of the SLB nights (past 11), and it worked! Tonight, I had this pile of towels and clothing that needed to be washed, so I decided to chuck it in both sets of washers / dryers after I took a shower. The only bad part about it is that one of the washer / dryer sets requires 10 quarters to operate. I didn't have that many, so I had to raid my coin collection. Goodbye, Harmony 2000 (2) / June 1999 (2) / 2006 (1) / Achievement 2000 (2) / Saskatchewan 1905-2005 (1), Health 2000 (2). =/

PM on Audioscrobbler, GWAR / DBX / Slave Pit Singles, kids on YouTube

I just made a new memory section for videos.

Operation Foodfite post referenced below

Latest "news" from Planet Hamster / the Hydro Flame Planet:

Gee, how nice. Corey sent me a private message on Audioscrobbler ( ... it's really SLOW!) just now. There was the time on July 9 when he'd sent me something on there where both the subject and the body was "poopapoo!" so then I bugged him about it:

[00:41:50] AlenaBrolxFlami: POO?! I'M GOING TO KILL YOU!
[00:42:56] mrptptpt: now what?
[00:57:47] AlenaBrolxFlami: YOU! I just looked at my shiny new page and found I had 1 new message, so I looked... it was from YOU!
[01:11:24] mrptptpt: poopapoo? :P I can't send you messages? :P
[01:19:51] AlenaBrolxFlami: yes, that... I wasn't expecting that.... then I got it just earlier tonight! of course you can send me messages, but that was kinda odd

He told me this GWAR stuff earlier, and I feel a need to record it here:

[17:27:34] Corey: new DBX stuff?
[17:27:48] Corey: Slave Pit Singles?
[17:27:52] Corey: new GWAR album?
[17:28:24] Corey: no new X-Cops though, unless you count the 1 or so new X-Cops song DBX does in this new one
[17:28:36] Corey: new cover anyway :P old song
[17:28:50] Corey: is that what?!?!
[17:30:36] Flami: All hail sparkly socks!: and I was SOOOOOOOOOOO kidding myself, I know this... and now I can go and be an adult, heh
[17:31:20] Corey: of course, I already knew you were an old fart, that's nothing new
[17:34:22] Corey: oh, new SLAVES GOING SINGLE GWAR album too :P which is very slowly downloading after I begged someone to reseed it on a torrent. the only track I don't actually have elsewhere is almost done, though

so... in GWAR news, I'm currently downloading the only album I don't have, I just ordered the DBX live DVD, I have the full Slave Pit Singles collection, plus (low quality) artwork for each of the seven tapes
[17:34:54] Corey: new GWAR CD with a bonus DVD came out today.. will pick that up mainly for the DVD tomorrow...

This current private message is just titled "Zombie Attack!" and says "grab the shotgun, Ma... it's corpse killin' time," which I assume are DBX / GWAR / Slave Pit Singles lyrics. So I sent him one to prove that I missed him too, haha. Here's the conversation about THAT:

[19:39:29] Flami: by the way, are you trying to send me nudie pics? :P
[19:42:04] Corey: uh, I don't think I am
[19:45:27] Flami: well, if that PM contains 'em... I'm torn between killing you and bugging you :P
[19:45:34] Corey: PM?
[19:45:44] Corey: and I thought you said you were an adult now!
[19:45:54] Flami: yes. the thing you sent me on Audioscrobbler /
[19:46:00] Flami: yeah... private message
[19:46:04] Flami: I am an adult now
[19:46:05] Corey: audioscrobbledybobbledy
[19:46:15] Flami: maybe not in the Pursuit of Happiness way, but whatever...
[19:46:18] Corey: yes, that is chock full of nudie pictures and decaying corpses
[19:46:28] Flami: oh goodness..
[19:46:31] Corey: well, it talks about decaying corpses I guess, but that's in the subject line
[19:47:25] Corey: so if you're a big tough adult, you can't be afraid of those things
[19:47:49] Corey: that message, however, is just like a line of nonsense, or something... mainly to get you to yell at me for sending nonsense
[19:50:22] Flami: I assume that refers to GWAR / DBX / Slave Pit Singles lyrics
[19:52:01] Corey: uh no, I just made it up and it doesn't mean much of anything! :P
[19:52:59] Corey: and Slave Pit Singles isn't a band :P it's a set of 7 tapes that GWAR made themselves, and are basically impossible to get legit copies of anymore :P
[19:54:50] Corey: there's some GWAR stuff that wasn't put on the albums, some demos, some tracks of drunken rambling and fooling around.... MC Rhythymless, Kozonom, most of the background music of all their movies... some cheesy cover songs (meant to be cheesy) in a project called Wolfgang AM...
[19:55:14] Corey: you have some of the songs off that... probably stuff like Poopie Britches, Drop Drawers, Don's Bong Is Gone, etc...
[19:56:04] Flami: oh, okay
[19:56:59] Corey: KIDS NEXT DOOR video on Youtube of those kids' songs I was telling you about! :P kick ass
[19:58:51] Corey: haven't been able to find that ever before :P just the mp3s, like I mentioned
[19:59:55] Corey: except now it won't load....
[20:01:59] Flami: yes, it does
[20:02:34] Corey: well, it won't load for me :P I have it downloading from KeepVid though... going fairly slow
[20:03:00] Corey: it WAS working, then I tried to make it fullscreen, and now it's just sitting there doing freakin' nothing
[20:03:06] Flami: oh, okay
[20:18:57] Corey: so, I guess that cartoon officially rocks
[20:19:29] Flami: how so?
[20:19:39] Corey: uh, it has GWAR music, doesn't it?
[20:19:52] Flami: ah

White diamonds / Dreams of mushrooms, Lori, and Leon

Hey, I got a white diamond in Bookworm by using three yellow / gold tiles when I made the word "roan" last night! Then I used the white diamond on the word "fit"... had to do it before I scrambled the letters. ;) (hmm... my mom emailed me: I *know* she's back, but I think I'll wait on my souvenir till Sunday... I need the sanity break, and it won't be pleasant if I find out that she called me yesterday before 11:30 AM! :P)

Well, that nap seemed to do the trick. I had an interesting dream, too. Apparently, I was a character in a video game where the objective was to eat a lot of mushrooms. I did that successfully the first time, but went for a second. That was when the mud and bracken of the game environment began to change from brown to white and green, and I became unable to keep the mushrooms in my mouth long enough to be eaten. They kept hopping out... o_O

Then the scene switched to the church basement, where a bunch of the younger kids were having Fellowship. I left my knapsack on a chair and watched: by the time I got back, William or Eric (Louisa's brother) had put a rat in the bottom compartment. Chris and I yelled at him to take it out or face consequences, so he did. Then we all went on a huge tour bus and were whisked to an idyllic summer haven, where "Canadians canoeing and enjoying time in the sun" was the focus of a TV news article. (we were all getting interviewed... it was great!) We went to a restaurant with black tables and chairs: the food was excellent!

After that, we were all sleeping in a longhouse when my elementary school friend Leon was the recipient of some very unwelcome advances from a girl I knew in high school. Lori Graham looked like she did in Grade 8, with dirty brown hair and this intense look. Leon clearly didn't like her stealing kisses from him, particularly since his girlfriend was sleeping right next to him! (he stroked her leg protectively, too) Then she tried talking to me, saying that she was interviewing me to ask whether the restaurant's change of management affected my enjoyment of the trip. I wasn't having any of that, and she left eventually.

Next thing we knew, we heard that she'd died (killed herself?) on a local racetrack... we all shared gummi worms and other candy in celebration of that news, heh. I woke up when I was recording my experiences in a yellow duo-tang and complaining about the tabs not allowing me to insert papers wherever I felt like it: I had to take out everything, insert the papers at a certain place, and then put everything in again! (common complaint in Grade 7 for me, I know...) I think I knew that I couldn't take the duo-tang to the real waking world with me, and that disappointed me. Oh well... this is the next best thing that I can do! :D

I think I need to take a shower and do laundry now before anything else important, like eating. :P
