Edited validation meme

I last did this two years and two days ago, so thought it should be resurrected. :P

Mark with an X the things you would do.

Would you:

( ) Go out with me?
( ) Give me your number?
( ) Let me kiss you?
( ) Watch a movie with me? Even a really sappy one?
( ) Let me take you out to dinner?
( ) Drive me somewhere? Anywhere?
( ) Be my boyfriend or girlfriend? (doesn't matter, even though I'm perfectly straight.. this is just a meme, after all :P)
( ) Have a fling with me?
( ) Listen to me if I called you crying even if you were out with friends?
( ) Buy me a drink or a meal if I didn't have money?
( ) Take me home for the night?
( ) Let me sleep in your bed?
( ) Sing car karaoke with me?
( ) Sit in the doctor's office with me because I didn't want to go alone?
( ) Pick me up at 3:00 AM because the transit system here sucks?
( ) Sing me to sleep?
( ) Watch TV with me when I couldn't sleep?
( ) Tell me when I need to stop talking?
( ) Give me a hug even when I say I don't need one?
( ) Repost this for me to answer your questions?

Diamonds / Let's entertain the blind people while dodging questions about my non-existent love life!

Gee, the autosave thing works whenever I type in something complaining about it. I wonder if I've got a sentient LJ update field on my hands... o_O

Ah, the Awana break is good even though I sorta miss the kids... it's no three-week break like the one we get at Christmas / New Year's, but it's cool. I wonder whether I'll survive getting up at 6 AM two days in a row next weekend... where was my head / brain when I agreed to take that bus tour with my mom?! Ah well, I tell myself it's only temporary and the trip will (hopefully) be worth it if I don't feel like committing matricide at the end! (only half-kidding, heh) Being awakened from my happy slumber isn't something I necessarily deal well with, either...

I've had two white diamonds in two separate Bookworm games today! I got White Diamond #1 on Level 8 when I used three yellow / gold tiles to make the word ROUT. (the only normal one was the U, I believe) o_O Unfortunately, I couldn't make any words out of the white W before the whole tile field had to be scrambled, so I quit that game. (hey, I have my standards before Level 12, and even afterwards! :P) Then I got White Diamond #2 when I used two blue diamonds in the making of the word HUG. (the only normal tile was the H) I managed to use that white diamond for the R in the word RIM before I had to scramble the tiles, but I quit that game too because it wasn't going well.

Here's a link to my brother's Flickr photos... they don't seem to be updated, as the latest ones are from when the guys did the Grouse Grind three times in one day for Darfur back in August.

I decided to do some blog catch-up... must do so on Friday next week! Vivian's been sick, and mentioned some highlights of the week: small group outing at Earl's, Starbucks, mocha, and more. Dawn had a bunch of pictures and thanks to people... I guess she wanted those items for her birthday, and the girls came through, heh. Speaking of birthdays, Vivian will have her birthday wish list up soon... I'd have done the same, but those things never seem to work out for me. Besides, who reads this stuff anyhow?! *crickets* Yeah, thought so. Heh. Jen's excited about her sister Caroline's wedding, since she's going to get two weeks off work AND it'll be a non-traditional wedding. Things between her and someone else are going okay, so that's good... that just means Jon gets to tease her more, or so he thinks! (he was asking her last night about spending time with Dave in Toronto: she thinks she will, heh)

Steph had a progress report on the state of her rebuilding epithelium after those cells were scraped off... yummy! I wonder how long it took her to write that post, since I imagine being at the computer isn't the best thing for her right now. (even if her eyesight IS better than it was before when she wasn't wearing glasses!) Try not rubbing your eyes for three weeks... that would tend to make you aware of your eyeballs, for sure! She loved the testimonials at the Coal Harbour eye place, the increased tests they did, the free consultation, and the caring atmosphere. Then again, the laser apparently sounds like you're being abducted by aliens, and the burning really makes you think about your poor cornea! (I also decided to call earlier to entertain her since she's blind... note to self: NEVER tell her about a certain person asking questions in a courtship / dating talk, or else she and Mom will get the WRONG IDEA! She says that Ray, Vivian S., and Dallas are coming tomorrow to Thanksgiving dinner: sweet!)

Spoz had stuff to say about the Crown and Anchor hotel, plus the normal weekender commentary / photos. Public transport could be a tangent entry, for sure... but he's there to document the music scene, haha. Seems he had an interesting time, what with lots of drinks and vinyl albums.

Dave says that on the TTC, there's a shirtless man with a Santa Claus hat who does pushups and saying "Yes yes yes yes yes!!!!" This dude's been banned from all TTC vehicles, Yonge / Dundas Square, Nathan Philips Square, and the area from College to King and Yonge to Spadina. He also got to see a live taping of the Royal Canadian Air Farce recently; he went to his first one -- a taping of Jeopardy in Culver City, CA -- three years ago, but missed the legendary Ken Jennings by mere weeks. Then again, he still wonders what could have happened had he actually witnessed Jeopardy history being made in person. But he witnessed another historical television moment of sorts: he saw the first ever taping of a Canadian sketch show in high-definition. Yay for milestones, haha. (and I don't necessarily mean the restaurant!)

Now I might go tag various RANDOM_MUSINGS posts... I'm the mod, and I have THE POWER!!! :D

Dreams of rebelling against dentist appointments / Names, Halloween, pride, red carpet look

I dreamed that my mom made dentist appointments for me and my siblings. However, I was being Little Miss Rebellion and deliberately missed the appointment she made for me because I thought that she shouldn't make plans for me or interfere with my style. I spent the time going up and down stairs in this maze of passages trying to find a particular place because I wanted to go there later. Finally, I made my way to the dentist office and met up with my family there. My brother and sister were like "THERE you are!" while my mom was kinda miffed that she had to pay a lot of money because I missed the appointment. After I'd yelled at her in the dentist office, I woke up. Very interesting... o_O

The return of the chocolate fondue fountain means we can dip broccoli into it!

Eric picked me up a little later than 7:05, the time he claimed that he'd be at my place. Oh well, I'm used to it. He reminded me that he wanted a sane car ride (even though he didn't have a bad week or anything), so I did my best to oblige him. We listened to the Lions-Stampeders football game, reminded ourselves that Jon was at Resonate and Steph was blind, remarked that we were both ready for the marriage / dating / courtship talk tonight, discussed the hockey game (won over Columbus 3-2 in OT: Daniel Sedin had two goals!), and wondered at the Burger King commercials set in romantic restaurants that involved the line "You shouldn't be hungry after you've finished eating." I liked the one where the woman tells her date that she's really a man (LIE!), and he goes into a gagging fit... she's like "So you're NOT going to finish it! I'll have it then!" (there's a version with a guy telling his girlfriend / wife that he's having an affair... she has a hissy fit, and he figures that she isn't going to eat the rest of her dinner: score!) Eric thinks I can relate to that one more... uh, sure... o_O He thinks Randal is pretty quirky: yeah, probably. Can't say I've especially noticed that, heh.

Once we got to church late, we waited for our group to finish praying before we entered the basement. The group laughed at some of Pastor Edward's illustrations in his talk, and certain analogies: love as a fluffy thing?! Hahahaha! Andrea, Karen C., and a couple others had made us homemade pearl milk bubble tea / fruit / pizza / Swedish meatballs / veggies / chips and salsa, along with the return of the chocolate fondue machine! I talked to Jeremy briefly: he's going to his parents' tomorrow for the weekend, which should be good. Gave Sheena her sister Chalaine's birthday card... at least I know it'll get to her! Connie asked if we'd done anything after Dragon Ball on Sunday.. nope, we were all tired from Nathan's dinner! (she left at around 11:30, which is the latest she's stayed there)

After the talk which ended at 10:50 (way later than usual... Resonate was finished before we were - not surprising!), we congregated around the food to talk some more. Andrea and Randal did get my emails, and seemed to appreciate them... I tried talking to Randal about that in the church kitchen, but he steered the discussion to my blog in general. (Jon figures future generations will look at my blog and exclaim: "Wow, this girl took a lot of surveys!" Yeah, shush!) Meh, not a huge deal... but I'll get him on Sunday, haha. I talked to Chung and Karen S. for a little while, as well. Some of the Resonate crew (Jon, Sarah, Daniel, Isabel, Karen L., etc.) came downstairs (at the same time as the cleanup crew) to gawk at the food and the chocolate fondue machine. (that thing is really cool when it's going in a fountain!)

Stanley decided to dip a meatball in the chocolate fountain, but only after he saw Jon dip a baby carrot into it. People wanted Jon to try the broccoli, but he wanted to work his way up first. Isabel, Karen S., and Sarah thought it was kinda gross... but Eric and I know about the time he had his salad swimming in Pepsi, and the numerous other weird food combos! Jon got Connie to take a few digicam shots of his broccoli dipped in chocolate: the action shot was pretty good, haha. Then we moved on to biscotti / meatballs / wafers / cherry tomatoes... Stanley was telling us about some classroom hijinks where a teacher was playfighting with another student, heh. Jon asked us about the crux of the talk, so I gave him my notes: he got a laugh out of the seven signs of defective dating, haha. (I remember we all had different answers as to whether true friendship could exist between a man and woman, heh)

Dylan wanted to borrow Jon's laptop so he could look up stuff about Vivian's laptop, so Jon contented himself with bugging Vania and Sheena. He told me that Steph could just go along with him to the Sunday dinners, even if she wanted to actually be invited: he keeps forgetting to add Christon and Ricky to the list, while I keep forgetting to give him Jasmine's address. Oh well, all in due time! Vania wondered if I liked anyone... no, and neither does she. I don't think anyone in the Fellowship is dating except Chung and Karen, either. We bonded over maternal nagging... matchmaking in my case, and cleaning her room / the house in hers! Lesley said that she wasn't feeling well on Sunday, which is bad: she missed a good time, though!

Later, Eric looked up the football score: the Lions had beat Calgary 39-13, which is probably a good thing. I don't know much about football, but I could tell that he was happy over that. Vivian also tried to look things up on her Xanga for Dylan to see: for some reason, she couldn't find a picture of Hammy (stuffed animal pig) with her laptop! That's why I like Blogger: you can search for things by keyword, and it's come in very handy for me!

While Dylan and Jon were discussing worship team scheduling (rotation of seven instead of six?!) / prayer meeting tomorrow by the back door (we couldn't leave by the stairs to go to the FRONT door since Stanley had just cleaned the floor there), Eric T.'s mom wanted us out of the way. So we all just went home: Jon was busy writing an essay on his laptop in the car, and called Sam to confirm that he was sleeping over at Joey's. Eric said I was doing a good job of being sane, but I shouldn't go nuts over a touchdown or a full moon. Whatever you say, dude! Then again, he wouldn't be too impressed if Jon called him at 7 AM to wake him up tomorrow.. he threatened to drive us as far as we could get to the Dinsmore Bridge (which is currently closed because someone misjudged its height), heh. Petro Canada also had false advertising in their gas prices: the sign said 96.9¢ a litre, but the tank had 99.9¢ a litre like everyone else. I also apparently missed an opportunity to slam his car door shut when they dropped me off, whoops! (but then they were joking about keg parties at my place, sigh...)

Blame Teunis for these quizzes... he planted the idea in my brain! :P

Chevys Garlic Mashed Potatoes / What my name means / my boyfriend type / my drug of choice

Chevys Garlic Mashed Potatoes

This easy-to-clone dish comes with many of the tasty entrees at the restaurant chain or can be ordered up, pronto, on the side. It's a nice clone to have around since it goes well with so many dishes, Mexican or otherwise. Just give yourself the time to bake and cool the potatoes.

4 medium / large russet potatoes
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic (3-4 cloves)
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup cream
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Bake the potatoes by first rubbing them lightly with oil, and then baking them in the preheated oven for 1 hour until they are tender. Cool.
3. Mash potatoes and remove about half of the skin. You want to leave the rest in.
4. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, then add garlic and sauté for 5 minutes.
5. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and cook for 5-10 minutes while stirring often, until garlic mashed potatoes are very hot. Serves 4.

The sign I shouldn't date, ice cream flavors

Hmm. Restarting doesn't seem to cure anything! Dammit... I could swear it worked fine yesterday! I love my autosave... don't take it away!

Edit: It appears to work normally now... maybe if I wait for the time issue to resolve itself, things will be cool from here on in. Oh wait, now it appears to work RANDOMLY?! What the heck?!

Never Date an Aries

Impatient, restless, and selfish - it's a lot of work to make an Aries happy.
And if you drop the ball, your Aries will be gone faster than you can say "I'm sorry"!

Instead, try dating: Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, or Pisces.

LJ boxes, my efficiency, OK Cupid messages, and dreams of mansions

What the heck... LJ refuses to convert my time to normal anymore, and it also doesn't autosave drafts now. Very annoying! Plus, the text field box stretches the screen... I demand it be fixed NOW! (haha, as if complaining here is going to do any good!) Maybe it'll be fixed if I restart... so I'll try that later.

Andrea emailed me (copying Randal) to ask how the laser eye surgery went, so I just copied and pasted the stuff I wrote after I called Steph. I am efficient, and that'll be two fewer people on the weekend that I have to tell about how it went! Well, let's hope so... knowing me, I'll probably talk to one or the other (or both!) of them anyhow.

I got an... interesting... message on OK Cupid about shirts and pulling them around. Uh, sure.. o_O

I had an interesting dream which started out at a bus stop. A bunch of my friends (including Jeremy) were waiting forever on a blacktop road for a bus. Once we checked the bus schedule which was across the street (nearly getting run over by another bus in the process), we discovered that the next bus would come in a while. After getting on that bus, we went to a mansion, where our task was to keep an eye on a particular person. The dude tried to escape a few times, but we kept him contained till he had to face judgement. :D Weird stuff...

Mooncake, pirates, ninjas, monks, and Chevys Fresh Salsa

Eric H. discussed the Mid-Autumn Festival with me on MSN earlier tonight. All I know is that this year, it coincides with Thanksgiving. (last year, it coincided with my birthday time... Henrik remembered!) He assumes he'll have a family dinner tomorrow, and likes the mooncake without any yolks. I can take or leave mooncake, although I do kinda want it at this time of year... go figure! Maybe I'll buy some tomorrow, but it does tend to be expensive, so maybe not!

You are a Ninja!

You move stealthily and stay in the shadows, biding your time before striking and eliminating your prey. As a ninja, you are equipped with a wide variety of weapons, but the most important weapon you have is your brain. Thinking ahead and anticipating problems is the mark of a good ninja, as well as the ability to remain unseen and unheard when you wish.

Pirate Quiz by LJ Quiz

Chevys Fresh Salsa

Whip out the food processor and fire up the grill because you'll need these essential tools to clone one of the best restaurant salsas in the business. The key to recreating the flavor of the real deal is to fire-roast the tomatoes and the jalapenos, and to add a little mesquite-flavored liquid smoke. The restaurant chain uses a mesquite grill, so these steps are crucial to getting the same smoky flavor as the addictive restaurant version. Chevys uses chipotle peppers, or smoked red jalapeno peppers. But unless you grow your own jalapenos, it may be difficult to find the riper red variety in your local supermarket. For this recipe, the green jalapeno peppers will work fine.

6 medium tomatoes
10 jalapenos (red is best)
1/4 of a medium Spanish onion
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoon mesquite-flavored liquid smoke

1. Preheat your barbecue grill to high temperature.
2. Remove any stems from the tomatoes, then rub some oil over each tomato. You can leave the stems on the jalapenos.
3. Place the tomatoes on the grill when it's hot. After about 10 minutes, place all of the jalapenos onto the grill. In about 10 minutes, you can turn the tomatoes and the peppers. When almost the entire surface of the peppers has charred black, you can remove them from the grill. The tomatoes will turn partially black, but when the skin begins to come off, they are done. Put the peppers and tomatoes on a plate and let them cool.
4. When the tomatoes and peppers have cooled, remove most of the skin from the tomatoes and place them into a food processor. Pinch the stem end from each of the peppers and place them into the food processor as well. Toss out the liquid that remains on the plate.
5. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and puree on high speed for 5-10 seconds, or until the mixture has a smooth consistency.
6. Place the salsa into a covered container and chill for several hours or overnight while the flavors develop. Makes approximately 2 cups.

Lice in salmon, laser eye surgery haze, hockey wins, and white diamonds

I just talked to my sister to see how she was after her laser eye surgery on Tuesday. She says that the Thanksgiving dinner is on Sunday night, and that Vivian / a Regent person / Dallas and I are invited... I'll go for that. TURKEY and chemicals, anyone? Also, she tells me that wild salmon are contracting lice from farmed salmon when they go upriver to spawn, so the trip my mom are taking to Adams River should be an important one. Lice is thinning out the numbers of the salmon in the runs, too... yikes! This lice isn't like human lice, since fish lice is deadly! At least I'll get some reading done and not be as exhausted as I would be on the one-day trip... Steph hopes for bonding time between me and Mom, but she probably shouldn't expect much of that, har har.

Apparently, it's going to be really annoying if Steph goes out anywhere for the next week or so since she has to wear oversized sunglasses (people might think she's a prima donna!) AND put like 80 million eyedrops into her eyes every hour. Best for her to stay home and rest, since things are hazy and blurry anyhow. It's kinda better than before with her glasses, but the cells will take two weeks to rebuild: the manual tells her to be patient and NOT rub her eyes for ANY reason! Man, that's gotta be something to keep close track of. If you're like us, you rub your eyes a zillion times during the day without really knowing it!

Steph's not sure how she'll keep up with the hockey pool, since her eyes feel really strange whenever she's on the computer for more than a couple of minutes. She says Rachel, Vivian, Karen Grace, and Margaret have been by to see her: Vivian lives closest, so that makes it easier to do that kind of thing. At first, I thought Steph would be falling down the stairs like in this icon, but she says no... good thing, too! But now I know what to tell people if they ask me how Steph is, haha. Although she's kinda miffed that Jon isn't inviting her to the Sunday dinners or including her on the lists for them (he included Teunis on it!)... she was invited to the first one, but not to any of the others. She says she shouldn't have to ask, so I dunno... he just tells her that he's going out to the Sunday dinners, heh. (she made a joke about the people invited being older, but Karen's a year younger than she is... I told her about what we did at Dragon Ball and such, too!)

We won 3-1 against the Red Wings tonight! Roberto Luongo made 27 saves, and we'll see how the season goes since they have 14 new people on the team.... ah, hockey is back! :D (1-0 on the season so far...)

I also got another white diamond in Bookworm tonight: I made the word OXY by using two blue sapphire tiles (X and Y), and then used the white diamond on the word BIO because I didn't want it to get lost in a tile scramble I was planning! Yay for that! :D

Dreams of shooting people slowly / White diamonds and weird words, weight

I got another white diamond in Bookworm by using three yellow / gold tiles on the word "sin," then I used the white diamond some time later on the word "kae." It's surprising what this game considers as words... "voe," "pul," "pule," "kea," "jow," "zek," and numerous other combinations of letters. Guess you learn something new every day! (maybe people should try for that, even if you can't comprehend it or it doesn't stay in your brain for long enough, har har)

I'm not taking the Blogthing about whether I need to lose weight. ("Do you need to lose weight?" indeed...) There are some things which shouldn't be posted, and that is one of them! Besides, I know when I need to do so... and the time is now. Heh. That's all I'm saying on THAT one! :P

I had an interesting dream in which one of the aunties (Emily and Michelle C.'s mom, not J-Mak's mom) told me and my friends not to do anything that she didn't expressly condone. Of course, we all laughed at that. We invited Michelle and some others to go around with us, and they did. Everyone had fun scaring random people on the street, but eventually it was time to go home. We were at the family house some time later, ostensibly getting ready for church in the morning. Fidela discovered a cool video game which involved shooting at fancily-dressed people on an estate with several large ornate houses. My siblings and I were all paying attention to that, despite my dad's impatience: the blood spilling out of the people was BLUE, and the bullets appeared to go by VERY SLOWLY before finally hitting a target.

There was also a hockey game on one TV, and a basketball game on the other one, so we had more than enough entertainment to distract us from getting ready for church. I'd just decided to put all my church stuff in a plastic bag when the doorbell rang. I answered it to find Eric at the door... since he needed a ride, I let him in. The rain appeared to have diminished, which was good. We played all these games and bet on extremely informal pools until my dad showed up downstairs to roar at everyone about how slow we were. After we'd annoyed him even further, I woke up. Interesting stuff my subconscious comes up with... o_O

Sunny is NOT a unisex name! / Chef Paul Prudhomme's Poultry Magic

I've just been thinking about names tonight. Yesterday, someone told me that Kyle / Michael / Ryan are unisex names these days. I did see a birth announcement for a Christopher Emily Elizabeth years ago, and I suppose it isn't as utterly STUPID as Urhines Kendall Icy Eight Special K!, but still! Sometimes, parents just annoy me with the names they choose for their kids! Then again, there is this kid in Awana this year named Sunny. Just looking at the name last week, I assumed the kid was a girl. Then I got a chance to interact with the kid very briefly... turns out that the kid is a boy.

What the heck... I used to know a sibling combo named Ruby and Sonny at church, and that's how you spell it for a dude! (but I did know a guy named Sunny Dhillon back in junior high, too... so this isn't exactly new) Please stop trying to confuse us traditionalists, parents! (or at least don't spell "Christina" as "Khrystyna"...)

Am doing a bad job of concealing / internalizing certain emotions. Must do better, even though that's not healthy. Sigh...

Chef Paul Prudhomme's Poultry Magic

Louisiana chef Paul Prudhomme, America's number one Dom DeLuise lookalike, hit it big in supermarkets with his magical brand of Cajun spice blends. Chef Paul developed his seasonings after years of making little batches and passing them out to customers in the restaurants where he worked. Now his Magic Seasoning Blends come in several varieties and are produced in a whopping 30,000-square-foot plant by 38 employees. Fortunately, it'll take only one of you in a small kitchen to make a clone of one of the most popular versions of the blend. Use it when you barbecue, roast, grill, or sauté your favorite chicken / turkey / duck / Cornish game hens.

1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
dash cumin

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Store in a covered container. Sprinkle on any poultry to taste. Makes 4 teaspoons.

White diamonds / Janet Jackson chicken / No leet charter numbers for Awana around here!

I got another white diamond in Bookworm last night! Constructed the word "lei" with blue sapphire tiles on the E and I because there was no way that flaming tiles were going to consume the B on what would become the word "blue." :D

Nina Hagen's Making Monsters For My Friends and Ministry's Every Day is Halloween might be appropriate songs for the Halloween season, haha. Now I wish I had some chicken lasagna, and I'm not sure why!

At the Sunday dinner, Jon made a joke about the Reject Chicken's breast being a Janet Jackson chicken. Jeremy followed that up with a remark about a wardrobe malfunction, haha. I asked Jon whether he remembers my yelling "POISON!" at him and Steph in a growly voice when they were kids, as Steph insists I did. He didn't, but told Jeremy that "Snakes on a Shirt!" just didn't have the same ring as "Snakes on a Plane!" (yes, I was wearing the "POISON!" snake / dragon shirt in part because it was Jeremy's birthday... I'm weird, haha :P)

Then on Saturday, Amos was filling out an Awana membership card. He asked me what our charter number was, and whether it was 1337. I put a friendly arm around him and joked that he was spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME on the Internet to come up with that one, haha. The number is really another three-digit numeral, of course.

Browser crashes, dinner dates, intuition, icons, Happy Bunny

The number of times my browser has crashed in the last few hours has been absolutely disgusting! :(

You Should Ask Him Out for Pizza

Casual and laid-back, you definitely don't want your guy to think of this as a real date.
Keep it friendly and light, and he'll be even more interested in opening up to you.
Whether it's an nice pizza restaurant or delivery at your place, pair this date with a movie to keep it low key.
A romantic dinner is in your future, but only if you take things slow.

You Are 44% Intuitive

Your intuition is often right, and you use it more than you may realize.
Your gut feelings are usually a good guide, but you need more to go on when making a decision.
You'll often check to see if the facts back up your feelings.
And when your intuition is wrong, you work to improve it for the future.
