I wish for many things...

Okay, so I did talk to someone just now. It was an interesting conversation about stuff, and NOT POINTLESS even if we were both falling asleep all over the place. Let's just say that breakups are NOT a thing to joke about - and if you're going to do it, just be clear about it. No, this doesn't mean we're breaking up anytime soon... I hope. I've thought of a few things too... and I trust he means what he said last night about various topics!

Note to self: Consult Jeremy about birthday doings next weekend. It's coming up! He better not forget to reply again to emails, haha - but it's all good!

Let's have creamy kimchi bubble tea while we wash the dog in Pho broth!

Got to the usual intersection way earlier than I thought... thank goodness I brought my one library book! Eric apologized for being late since he'd received a meeting notification one minute after the meeting started in the last hour - thank goodness he didn't joke that THIS was my fault, because he blamed almost everything else on me! (traffic, stupid cars, his car not starting in the sailing club parking lot, the bright sunlight reflections, etc.) I got mine back by playfully hitting him a few times, which he's used to. We discussed K, dancing, Surrey, possible arguments, etc. Hahaha, gotta love Diven!

We finally located everyone after phone calls to Jeremy and Andrea, and talking about Dallas being everywhere in the past year / other stuff. It was an interesting barbecue, what with our mocking Jen since we mentioned needing smoke ("you can smoke a cigarette and then we'll have some!"), and then thinking we needed her cigarette lighter for the grill just a few minutes later. Jeremy mentioned that he'd used his pipe lighter for a similar small grill, but Eric luckily found one more suited to the job of lighting flames. "If I were master of the flames, they wouldn't be going like THIS! *gestures to fire springing up from charcoal* I think they're master of ME!" We had chips, burgers, blackberries, veggie skewers, mini-watermelon slices, etc. Jer had brought some blueberry beverage, which made us wonder about the market for such things - could blueberry iced green tea REALLY be the best new blueberry beverage of 2005?! I told them that I was mutilating my hamburger bun while trying to eat a tall burger, and Eric heard "mutilated BUM"... I don't *think* I sustained any splinters there from sitting on the bench! He is CRAZY! (which is also not my fault...)

Jen and I wanted to try Jeremy's homebrewed Scottish ale - apparently, so many things went wrong when brewing that batch that he was surprised when we said it tasted good! (came from the keg!) We were worried about the "redneck police ATV patrols" since we were technically breaking the law by consuming alcohol at the beach, but they weren't at the park - besides, other people had beer AND red wine! ("they MUST be Greek, haha!") They came roaring around when it started to get dark, but just looked like they were having a good time since they didn't actually stop anyone from drinking! Just in case, Jeremy stashed the two empty beer bottles in his bag. At some point, Jeremy decided to "infuse" the ale with the blueberry drink - that actually tasted good with the right amount, and he figured he needed to tell Derek (the new brewmaster at Dix) about it, haha. We heard a constantly barking dog, and we figured that meant the owners were just as annoying - Jen wanted to shoot it, and not just because it wasn't a wiener dog like hers! Jeremy told us about a dog that he and his family had had - it had barked about three times a year, which we found funny.

Chuck asked me how my week was, and I gave him no opportunity for teasing - maybe I should have, haha. Discussed Erin, Derek, and Darren for a bit - there's Ireland in the future! Jeremy somehow broke off the lid that went with the squeezable ketchup, which reminded him of a story involving the old ketchup bottles that you had to hit on the bottom. Seems his dad was at a restaurant and wanted ketchup - the only problem was that the last person to use the bottle had just replaced the lid on the bottle without bothering to screw it on. So he gets all dramatic with the bottle, shaking it behind him - ketchup got ALL OVER this couple sitting behind him! Jer's not sure whether his dad gave them money for their clothes, but it would suck if they'd been wearing new / fancy items! This reminded Andrea of a story about her siracha (Thai peppers and such) jar - she and her mom had been having a disagreement one day, and Andrea just said: "Fine, I think I'll just EAT now and talk to you later!" The jar's lid was old, so they didn't bother screwing it on properly most of the time - one litre of the stuff went FLYING all over the place (window / ceiling / floor), and her mom was NOT impressed!

Chuck tried sitting in Andrea's folding chair, but it was too big for him - Eric did the same, and his legs were too long for the thing! It was just right for Jen and Andrea, though... Jeremy and I just stayed on the bench and watched this with amusement. We asked Eric where he'd gotten the huge burgers - Alistair's mom had made them and put them in the freezer, but hadn't had time to give him the recipe, so had given him some instead. He'd been told to brush olive oil on them before grilling, so that was a bit of artistry. The mosquitoes were starting to bug us just after Jen, Andrea, and I went to the washrooms - we talked about Korey and sappy Facebook messages. Andrea had teasingly asked who his friend was in his previous picture, so he replied to say that I was the only one that I loved. So then Andrea had replied that I was a great person, and he'd agreed. Must have more girl get-togethers so we can talk about relationships and such, haha.

We decided to make arrangements with Jon (doing work at Nathan's and hopefully NOT falling asleep!) since he thought we were going to Jen's later, but that had been backup in case it rained. Jeremy put him on speaker phone (he could hear the "mayhem" caused by a screaming child nearby) while we offered various suggestions. No Calhoun's since it was noisy (can't carry on a conversation!) and not really a coffee place, no Artigiano's since it was closed, no Dragon Ball since everyone goes there... we finally settled on Bean Bros. Café. Andrea and Chuck played football for a while in the near-dark: for some reason, their affection made me want the same thing! Oh well, I'll see what happens with that later! At the coffee place, three of us ordered weaker matcha lattes than Blenz makes - we discussed Viva Java (Andrea almost worked for Arnie), Starbucks (rhymes with "sucks"), Tim Horton's, news / ad / media coverage (24 has LOTS of ads and no real international stuff), La Casa Gelato flavors making "good" bubble tea stuff (creamy kimchi, anyone? Jon would go out of business really fast if he tried that - "why doesn't anyone like what I do?!"), ginger snaps, Chuck's work at St. Paul's ("obstetrics usually happy" is NOT "psychiatric..." / things going really wrong when you deliver babies / accident rates at New Westminster's Columbian), the printing press and typos, Ty and Bible misprints, and famous Bible errors. Jon and Jeremy had a beer snob discussion related to storing stuff in dark places (it gets moved!), but Jen got really bored with it. She didn't have a topic to discuss, so silence isn't great when in a group of seven people! Jon said that he'd come over more often if she washed her dog in Pho / beef broth! Jen and Andrea were NOT impressed, and discussed dog diets and care - no one else understood it. (Eric would, but he was busy reading the paper - INTROVERTS UNITE!)

Jeremy was comparing hydro bills for power consumption purposes, and figured that Darryl had a LOT of computers. He's trying to make his condo more energy-efficient... maybe solar panels like the ones for his uncle's pool? Haha. (let's capture wasps in jars too, while we're at it) We'd been discussing the civic strike earlier, and Andrea noted that some people were really mean when they saw people dumping stuff in garbage cans since that was disrupting their "statement" to the city. Someone was taped in the act of littering his orange peels on the ground in a quest to make a statement - we have no idea what that would be! Discussed private / city pickup, apartments, libraries, Karen and Vivian being technically able to throw their garbage across the street since they live on Boundary, people cutting locks on big garbage bins and cramming their stuff inside to overflowing, strikers wanting to get back to work, etc. After a while of reading newspapers and such, I took out my ENDINGS book and read that for a bit. Jeremy asked what I was reading, so I showed him a section on the first electric chair execution - THAT had been so bungled! He'd heard about it... I'd let him borrow the book, but it was from the Richmond library! (the Vancouver libraries being closed is a bad thing about this strike because you can't use the free Internet access and sit down for an hour a day to work, according to Jon) Maybe I'll buy him the FINAL EXITS book next week, too... he'll be amused, at the very least! (Cordia LOVED it when I gave it to her!)

On the way home, Jon was mentioning his "anniversary" to Harmony - methinks someone doesn't know the definition of an ANNIVERSARY! Apparently, she would have said yes if he'd asked her out last June - he was a little late on that one, as usual. He was joking that he didn't know who she was or what she might do to him, haha. (same with me and K, heh) He told her that grapes and candy do NOT constitute a meal, since candy is definitely not one of the four food groups! We talked about potato chips not being a real source of vegetables, her sleep issues, cougar noises, jokes about cougar action (not sure I'll talk to mine tonight since he seems BUSY), and other such stuff. Of course, Eric and Jon both had to make cougar noises at me well before they dropped me off. I'll get them at some point, just not before Esther's baptism on Sunday! (I've only seen her maybe once every two months, always post-Resonate... of course I'm not going to the baptism since I don't know her!)

Legless corpse with its eyes wired open!

I assume the plans for my "second-favorite intersection" (as Eric likes to call it) are still a go. It'll be cool to be out with good people, even if Chuck WILL tease me! Had a good phone conversation last night, which was cool.

Today's Legless Yet Truly Morbid Fact!

On December 15, 1927, Marion Parker, the 12-year-old daughter of Perry Parker, a prominent banker in Los Angeles, was abducted from her school. A man had appeared at the principal's office and said that her father had been injured in a terrible accident. Letters demanding money were sent to her father for several days. All the communications, which often taunted the parents, were signed with names such as "Fate," "Death," and "The Fox." Negotiations with the suspect continued until a price was agreed upon and a meeting was set. Mr. Parker placed the ransom money, $1500 in cash, in a black bag and drove off to meet "The Fox." At the rendezvous, Mr. Parker handed over the money to a young man who was waiting for him in a parked car. When Mr. Parker paid the ransom, he could see his daughter Marion sitting in the passenger seat next to the suspect. As soon as the money was exchanged, the suspect drove off with the victim still in the car. At the end of the street, Marion's corpse was dumped onto the pavement. She was dead. Her legs had been chopped off and her eyes had been wired open to appear as if she was still alive. Her internal organs had been cut out and pieces of her body were later found strewn all over the Los Angeles area.

A massive manhunt for her killer began that involved over 20,000 police officers and American Legion volunteers. Huge cash rewards were offered to anyone who could provide information that led to the identification and capture of "The Fox." Suspicion quickly settled upon a former employee of Mr. Parker named William Edward Hickman. Only a week after the kidnapping murder, two officers who recognized him from the wanted posters found Hickman in Echo, Oregon. He was conveyed back to Los Angeles where he promptly confessed to another murder he committed during a drug store hold-up. Eventually, Hickman confessed to a dozen armed robberies. "This is going to get interesting before it's over," he told investigators. "Marion and I were good friends," he said, "and we really had a good time when we were together and I really liked her. I'm sorry that she was killed." Hickman never said why he had killed the girl and cut off her legs. Though his attorneys attempted to plead insanity for Hickman, the jury wouldn't buy it. He was convicted of murder and hanged at San Quentin prison in 1928.

Culled from: Crime Library
Generously suggested by: Riley


The Marian Parker murder shocked the nation and inspired a number of folk songs, including the following ditty:

'Way out in California, a family bright and gay
Were preparing for their Christmas not very far away
They had a little daughter, a sweet and pretty child
And everyone who knew her loved Marian Parker's smile

She left her home one morning for her school not far away
And no one dreamed that danger was lurking near that day
But then a murderous villain, a fiend with heart of stone
Took little Marian Parker away from friends and home

The world was horror-stricken, the people held their breath
Until they found poor Marian, her body cold in death
They hunted for the coward, young Hickman was their man
They brought him back to justice, his final trial to stand

The jury found him guilty, of course they could not fail
He must be executed soon in San Quentin jail
And while he waits his sentence, let's hope he learns to pray
To make his black soul ready for the great judgement day

There is a great commandment that says, "Thou shalt not kill"
And those who do not heed it, their cup of sorrow fill

Getting married to sisters IS Biblical, and so is passing off your wife as your sister!

It was good times tonight with my sibs, Erin, Derek, and Darren... they didn't like Jon's double IPA Amnesiac, but I was used to the bitter taste and liked it better than the Great White Beer. (so tame in comparison!) We talked about the good smoked salmon, young fathers like Kenneth and Fabian's brother ("Hey Fabian, how's Colin?" "He has a child now..." "... WHAT?!"), Phil or Melia putting their 98-year-old grandma on Facebook as the oldest person to ever use that site (she adds people, and even leaves messages on people's walls!), Randal and Korey being on Facebook, and this cool PNE exhibit that involved this dude constructing houses out of 20 pounds of playing cards a day. SO INTERESTING, and he even has a Guinness Book of World Records award for it too! When we talked about couples, Erin expressed astonishment at this one couple who got married after not even dating for a full year, and Jon said that the guy definitely knew what he wanted! Eddie and Eunice have been going out for five or six years (with a year's break in between), and Citrus and Danielle can't get married yet because of various reasons.

Jon got a call from Harmony, and Steph thought that we'd lost him for the evening - that turned out to be untrue. He told Darren about her insomnia, and joked that they'd take Darren out clubbing at a gay bar (Celebrities?) for an unofficial Fellowship program on the weekend. Somehow, this led to a series of jokes about how Darren had to finish a Guinness before he goes to Ireland / telling his mother that he wanted three kids by the time he turned 20 next year (he JUST turned 19 this past weekend, so he can have triplets!) / how he'd go into all these Irish pubs. Not sure his mom was too impressed, but the six of us were having a good time - four of us were crammed on the couch, someone was on the piano bench, and someone else was on the chair near the TV. Imagining family holiday get-togethers at the townhouse is making me giggle - good thing Harmony's skinny so she could still easily fit by me, K, and Jon! Hahaha. I don't think she was too impressed by Jon's line of "Hey, I could marry Holly [her sister, who's engaged to Peter] since it's Biblical because Rachel was supposed to be Jacob's first wife before Leah! I could also pass one of you off as my sister, but I remember strange things happened to the Egyptian king when that came about!"

Darren said that he'd seen Joe's new apartment, and that it compared to Daniel and Michelle's - theirs is quite good for a married couple! He'd seen Chris off on Tuesday night, which is good - it'll be some time before these friends are reunited again! We talked about what we watched on TV: Teen Choice Awards, Teen Tournament on JEOPARDY (Mother Teresa NOT being Mohammed / My Chemical Romance / Panic! At The Disco / Jack London / DON QUIXOTE), baseball (Jays-Angels / 30-3 game), football (Michael Vick and dogfighting - I remember when Eric told me it had been all over the news, and then I couldn't stop hearing about it), hockey (Brett Hull looks so old), basketball (US wasted the Virgin Islands 123-59 in a FIBA game), FRIENDS, Elton John on MuchMoreMusic (Jon protected Darren from the cheesiness by changing the channel), MuchMusic, THE SURREAL LIFE etc. Everyone marveled at how I finished a 250-page novel just today, and discussed HARRY POTTER deaths. Hey, I read quickly, and it's not like they MINDED my reading since I was still able to take part in the conversation! We're such good friends that it's not exactly RUDE, haha. (reminds me of how we three and Nathan were reading the paper at Chianti's that time) I made Jon sign a bunch of birthday cards, so we talked about the two Anitas (Tung is away, and Wong = Chow) / Andrew / Adam / Citrus and his golden birthday (24 on the 24th - we'll look forward to Erin's in five years when she'll be 31 on the 31st!) / not much you could do about a golden birthday being early in the month / Jeremy / Christon / David's son Ian and his brother Gabriel.

The discussion turned to the Cloverdale corn maze on Saturday (whether Calla could go?), and Steph brought up the corn maze outing a few years ago when Sean was totally hitting on Adela throughout the maze AND dinner afterwards. That reminded me of a couple of Sean stories: Brian coming over to our table at the Cactus Club one night looking totally disgusted, to inform us that Sean said "this Caesar salad's so good... it's giving me an orgasm!" No wonder his table had cleared the instant he said that! Then there was the one where he was at Congee Noodle House with Adela, her friend, me, Jon, and someone else - possibly Nathan. When the girls went to the washroom, he started in on telling us how "I want a hot mama who can bear me 30 children in 10 years!" So we looked at him and asked whether he realized what that meant (triplets every year for 10 consecutive years?!), and got this response: "My sperm is very powerful and could exhaust the system of her ovaries!" Then the girls came back from the washroom, so of course we had to tell them what Sean had been talking about. Sean tried to backpedal: "I wasn't talking about ovaries... I was talking about POETRY!" Yeah right! Everyone found the stories very funny, and Jon vaguely remembered the latter - only Sean would say such things!

When we ate watermelon, it was obvious that Erin and her brothers are amateurs compared to us eating machines! Steph predicted she'd be peeing a lot (as long as it's not puking it up :P), and Erin mentioned that she'd been embarrassed at all-you-can-eat sushi recently when she had to go to the bathroom three times during the course of the evening due to a lot of green tea. Talked about Winnie expecting again, and my unisex name - it's good for both a boy and a girl, but I sometimes wish for a more pretty moniker. *sigh* Jon made Mom spit out her tea all over the table when he casually mentioned that Leslie Nielsen was her "favorite" actor, haha. He'd also seen Winnie's sister Jenny at work recently, which is cool.

Just before the visitors left, they laughed over my mom's desktop - Steph changed it at Darren's request to the Kandoo frog wiping his butt with toilet paper! Mom wondered how THAT got on her computer, and I had to tell her that I put it on there one day when I was bored. It has a lot of amusement potential, and was something to see after a lot of pictures as a screensaver - including one of Harmony since Erin's parents have never met her. Now I'm home after discussing relationships with people, and Chinese Eric's asked if I know Cantonese. Probably not that much compared to him, but I can get by if we want subterfuge! (haha) He thinks K is a cool guy, and wants to hang out with him more - maybe the next time he's in town, since K's expressed a desire for such! Told him that Fay is definitely invited to my birthday dinner, barring schedule tie-ups... she'd better be at her boyfriend's good friend's dinner, haha. Not that we'll make her feel guilty if she isn't, of course. Ah, the beer's left my system now - too bad! Hahaha, maybe I should get some Amnesiac Ale - the bitter taste isn't THAT horrible! (Guinness next? Hahaha... only had it once!)

Leopards and cougars, consideration, grammar, feather dusters

HAHAHA. My sister just sent the entire family an email showing the difference between a leopard and a cougar. A leopard has a distinctive pattern, while a cougar doesn't have a pattern at all. These aren't the images she used in the email, but they should be close enough:

This is a Leopard - please note the printed pattern:

This is a Cougar - please note no pattern:

Mom, upon seeing that email: "OH! Are you SURE she's not mixing them up?!" (go Google Image Search those animals if you don't believe us...) Then, "Oh! The cougar looks so angry!" Um, it didn't look angry to me! Let's not get into the twenty tries it took her to pronounce "leopard" so it didn't quite sound like "leper"... o_O

On an unrelated note, I got my chips AND some Quaker's peanut butter cookies, which I haven't had in a long time. Good thing that Jeremy's easy to please with Lay's Sour Cream and Onion... although Jen isn't FUSSY as my mom says, she'll have to settle for Sea Salt and Vinegar kettle chips. (Dylan said something about All Dressed, but he's not going to be there, so I never even considered that flavor!) I like people who are easygoing, since it makes things much more pleasant. As for my mom's unintentional abuse of the English language, I just try understanding that she's not too fluent in it. Still, it can get interesting. But I really draw the line when she proceeds to tell me how much a certain thing cost (WHEN I AM ABOUT TO EAT IT) AS SHE GIVES IT TO ME. No, I refuse to feel guilty about eating X amount worth of stuff - and I hate when people do that to me. I have NEVER done that to my friends! "By the way, this thing I'm giving you cost $10!" (with an undertone of "so you should be grateful because I'm treating you, and don't complain about anything else, either!") doesn't sit right with me. I don't like it when people do that to me, so I don't do that to others.

Yes, I definitely care about grammar and spelling - and no, I'm not changing that for anybody! If you don't like it, you can lump it. Take it or leave it, as they say... because it is important to me, and those who really seek knowledge of this hamsterette should respect that. Eric only occasionally teases me about being a "vindictive grammar Nazi," so I can live with that! I also like people who strive to be as clear and correct as possible, although of course I can understand mistakes being made! Some people think I'm pedantic / anal / uptight about it, but I think I'm none of those. I'm just me. :D (this doesn't mean I love my grammar-challenged friends any less, of course!)

No, the above rant about grammar and spelling wasn't directed to anyone in particular. It's just something that I've been thinking about, and had to get off my chest. :D

ACK! Bad memory moment - I was in the townhouse laundry room to get some mango juice and some blueberry juice (which my mom thought was blackberry juice - just like she thought the dishes were groceries when she was telling me that the "dishes" took a long time to put away), and saw the DREADED gy-mo-so on top of some juice boxes! I hope it's used for its intended purpose now because all three of us are old enough to NOT have that thing used on us anymore! HOLD ME! (heh)

Dream: Polaris water and my Awana friends dying?! / Plans and fixing

I have NO idea why I dreamed about taking a few bottles of Polaris water from a storage room, then trying to cope with the news of my Awana friends dying. Melia, Angus (who's not even in Awana), Winnie, and a few more people had been involved in a bad car accident. Why my subconscious likes to come up with things like this, I'll never know. o_O

Plans are proceeding apace with various people, which makes me happy. Gotta take chip suggestions into consideration, so let's hope that Super Grocer has black pepper Kettle chips as per Jen's request! (sour cream and onion is EASY, and I'd do that for Jeremy anytime!) I get to see Erin, Derek, and Darren later on tonight - should be good times! Maybe Auntie Brenda will do the dishes again, haha. Last time was full of laughs: guitar "lessons," Extreme's More Than Words, a game show about games, baseball highlights, crazy discussion about wedding planning / banquets / Korey. (I should have linked Andrew to K's picture when he was trying to recall the dude, but there wasn't any time...)

Hester's husband has come by and determined that my toilet issues need to be fixed by a plumber (no duh?), and figured that my fridge / freezer may need to be looked at by another professional guy, who's actually arrived and fixed the problem by putting a new power supply thingy into the fridge since the old one was actually fried. I had to make small talk with Hester, which kinda makes me uncomfortable - apparently, she thought it was hot in here and requested I open the window / patio door! Haha, I'm used to it! Now I can tell it's working, THANK GOODNESS! Tomorrow, I may have some Soupworks and do some laundry before I leave... then again, maybe not!

30-3 in baseball?! / MAX white diamond

HOLY CRUD. The Texas Rangers WASTED the Baltimore Orioles 30-3! Baseball history was made earlier, with the greatest number of runs in 110 years - definitely an American League record! (not quite on par with Barry Bonds breaking Hank Aaron's record of 755 home runs recently, but still pretty great!)

Had a white diamond in Bookworm earlier tonight, thanks to using blue sapphires on the H and N of the word HIN. Then I used the X white diamond on the word MAX. Pity I lost that game soon thereafter...

Someone says I'm beautiful and gorgeous to him. Why the heck am I having a hard time believing that?! Sure, he SHOULD say that since we are going out and all, but he just might mean it. Guess I should believe it, heh. Oh well, at least he didn't seem mad that I called kinda unexpectedly....

I've just been reminded of how much I love R.E.M.'s Losing My Religion, and Billy Joel in general. YAY FOR THAT KIND OF MUSIC! :D

Dream: Humiliation via knives in apples, oh my!

Note: LJ Dying During the French Revolution / Naruto LJ / LJ Doing Stuff in 2008 blogquizzes. (by Chelsea, Noriko, and Gav)

Mom called me at 9 AM, but I was still far too sleepy (from an interesting phone call?) to even consider going to the PNE. It was all right, since I had a weird dream that I can now write down. I also got a chance to talk to Andrew soon after I finally woke up - always a good thing! He was playing Texas Hold 'Em poker, and wondered whether I had received a pink Awana signup form... nope, although I was going to take care of that a couple weekends ago, and should do so this weekend. If I know Auntie Rebecca, it'll have a BIG ticky box for YES and no other options for next year, hahaha. I mentioned my boyfriend and reminded Andrew that he'd met him, but he didn't recall even with my hints. Oh well, they'll get to meet each other (again) eventually! And no, I did NOT introduce Andrew's twin ADAM to him accidentally in the church basement that day! Weird dream highlights:

* Calla blogging on her computer, which featured a "Navies" lavender background with kitten drawings on the desktop

* Calla, a few others, and me dissecting corpses (we remarked that we were lucky that we saved two intimate parts from a male corpse, and someone was afraid that she looked like another male's girlfriend - STALKER FROM THE UNDEAD!)

* my mom giving us paper from my dad, which we complained about because some of it was 1.5-line spaced and some was 1.0-line spaced (also, the origami paper was too brightly colored blue / orange / green / yellow... Mom said that was TOO BAD!)

* my being in a classroom with a bunch of other people, and the teacher (named Daniel) totally humiliating me while praising Dylan very highly (he threw knives from apples into the wall, and into apples to stick our papers to the fruit - and wrote notes to me and Dylan which were read out loud... I was being totally trashed, while Dylan was the best student EVER)

* Cindy comforting me (partly by calling the teacher a bastard) when I rushed from the room to cover my emotions, taking Steph's room key for the washrooms, and then seeing Karen Chan drooling over a fruit presentation in a large hall (watermelon, honeydew, melon, etc.)

* getting to choose great food selection (among ice sculptures as decoration) like strawberry-banana graham cracker cake, cheesecakes, strawberries, bananas, pumpkin pie, cream pie, exotic meat, ice cream, cakes, etc.

* having to take care of a black family who crashed their car through the front door of our building (at least three of them died near 6 AM, two of them named Margaret and Holly... and the guy Nathaniel - who almost looked like K - was ALMOST dead, but we managed to save him)

* talking to hellsings_home via MSN while looking up weird things on Wikipedia, and discovering that she knew Corey through ICQ and such as well ("I just copy-pasted your response from the Wikipedia entry - which was the big picture - to a stranger!" Then I saw the response from Corey: "awww... Corey's away, babe! Haha.")

Dunno where all that came from, unless it was the brief mentions of Cindy and Corey (meeting people through random ICQ chat can be FUN! ... or it was, in those days of late 2001 or so) in a phone conversation this EARLY morning with someone who likes strawberry-banana bubble tea!

Dream: Bikes on bus in winter / SUPER MARIO near casino

Hey, I had a dream featuring K in which he DIDN'T get killed! How about that?! Haha. Dream highlights:

* getting together with a bunch of people and playing games with Auntie Rebecca and Auntie Gloria

* seeing an orange-and-white schedule where two people were supposed to take care of kids in a blue trailer from 7:35 AM to 10 PM, in individual timeslots

* going on a message board and posting in three different WHEEL OF FORTUNE threads, one involving Christmas carols

* playing SUPER MARIO near a casino which had a "heavily filtered" entrance with an amp protecting the front door

* World 1-1 had huge bricks and enemies, the enlarging mushroom coming from a brick was a Sparky head, I had 11 men from someone's game, the fire plant got me right after I got bigger, I could go over the main world action and end World 1-3 in a SUPER MARIO 3 level-ending screen, the entire game had SUPER MARIO 2 music, and Steph warned me against ending the game at 1-3 since I was very close to the boss (but I did anyhow because of the confusing other controllers plugged into the adapter!)

* searching for a specific car shell in the snowy winter - it was buried in a snowbank in a driveway, and there were blue / red / yellow car exteriors (we eventually found it, which was good because that resulted in us being able to buy a car)

* waiting for a re-routed bus at a bus stop near JVC with Korey, Eric, and a bunch of other people with bikes; when the bus came, the other people all budged onto the bus with their bikes (I held Korey's hand and tried to reassure him that it would be okay since he'd get a seat with his bike and cane... eventually, he did)

* on the bus, this East Indian girl in a sari mentioned that she knew me - I was very confused, especially when one of her companions (an older East Indian man with glasses) held my hands in both of his and declared that his name was Benjamin Barscht and that he loved me (!!!)

* I thankfully saw Eric's yellow jacket and compelled him to come over with the power of my eyes - he quickly saw my predicament and advised me to yell something about my boyfriend, so I did over the cacophony of the bus

* he then pulled me away from Benjamin, and sat me down on a front-facing seat near the front bus door while he crouched on the floor near the yellow strip so he could pull it when our stop came up

* I wondered where Korey had gone with his bike and cane, and Eric thought that he wasn't on the bus at all; then again, we had seen him go on... but it was crowded!

* we got off the bus and finally encountered Korey with his stuff, to our great relief (I had to hug him and caress his face to make sure he was really there)

There's been a change from killing K to affection for him in my subconscious, at least for now. It could be because of last night, but the affection part hasn't changed since we met / decided to start dating! Not sure why it's changed NOW! I bet the Sparky head / Auntie Rebecca part comes from discussing Awana's start date with Andrew briefly on MSN last night. He remembers that my birthday's in September, yay! ("yours is on Monday and mine is on a Thursday of the third week - NOTE TO SELF!") As for SUPER MARIO, it could stem from discussing tests and Internet issues with Eric last night - weirdness abounds!

Glow about me / Butt songs / Huge horror movie list

I know Chuck likes teasing me because it's so easy; he thinks that I have this glow about me whenever I talk about a certain someone, which I guess is as it should be! Eric also tried spelling "propane" as "pro pain" on Friday, then confused "wok" with "walk" - not like the Chinatown tour which deliberately makes a pun out of those homonyms! Now I've finally found my "missing" toothpaste tube - I have NO idea how that thing ended up on the floor since I usually place it on the counter when I'm done with it! WEIRD! o_O [actually, I blame Korey!]

Last night reminded me of a few things, too. Spinal Tap's Big Bottom and Queen's Fat-Bottomed Girls are the songs my brother uses to tease me about my butt - Eric says he's heard a few things about it over the years, which I know. I also remember what Chinese Eric said about tricking Fay into watching horror movies with him because she'd cling to him: "I'll just tell her that it's a romantic movie, haha!" Do that, and she'll probably KILL you! Someone else thinks that horror movies would appeal to my morbid mind - despite watching BRAINDEAD, I'm not so sure about that! (I'll just read my library book about endings now since I want morbid!) Speaking of horror movies, I was reminded of Corey's huge 12/06/2005 list of his own!

Linnea Quigley's Horror Workout is a really weird workout video that consists mostly of clips of her nude scenes from horror movies she's been in, and really odd scenes like her working out by her pool as zombies gather... to work out with her. So you have people dressed as zombies trying to do jumping jacks and stuff while still trying to move like zombies.

Guts of a Virgin.. he doesn't know, since he hasn't watched through any of them really. They're Japanese, and look pretty crazy.

Short Night of the Glass Dolls... that is a Giallo... which is a type of movie where the killer usually isn't seen on camera until the end, and you just see black gloves killing everyone throughout the movie.. then they reveal the killer at the end.

Edit at 1:56 - the radio's now playing the Queen song mentioned above. OH MY! o_O

Despite Gmail ads, I am NOT a cougar mascot! / Korey pics

As soon as I got to church this morning, Chuck started in on teasing me about Korey. Meh, you're not even CLOSE with what you hypothesize... even if you call me a ROOKIE because we call each other almost every day! Went over to see Hannah and Priscilla, who told me that they hadn't won Bible Quiz yesterday - NO! I saw Jackie, so gave her a birthday card for Wednesday: she hugged me, and said I was SO GOOD with birthdays! Hey, I like remembering my friends' birthdays, and everyone knows it! In fact, Eric sent me an email at 4 on behalf of my friends in the fellowship committee saying that I must know Jeremy's birthday - since it wasn't listed in the directory, I was definitely glad to help!

At Auntie Esther's sentimental request, Darren played violin on Chris' last Sunday here before he goes to Carleton on Tuesday night... we'll miss him for sure! (and Darren when he goes to Ireland!) Made sure to talk to Chris later on, too - he better keep in touch while studying journalism, OR ELSE! At least Steph has his email address! Perhaps Stanley or Jeremy will take over drumming duties, heh. Shared various bits of amusement with Nathan and Jeremy: a repeating Flash video for 40 Days of Community, Stanley thinking that Jeremy could surely turn water into wine (Jer says it's not possible - something to do with ethanol?), Darren not being able to finish a Guinness last night according to Joey (Jon finished it for him), Joey reading a bit too far verse-wise in the Scripture reading, the "benediction as seminary student speech" joke, etc.

After service, I talked to Sheena / Chalaine / Randal / Karen Chan / Phil / Grace / David / Ian / various kids / Tim / Maxine / Joshua / Keenan / Kevin / Jen / Jeremy / Tony / Billy / Benjamin / Peter / Daniel / Eric. Waved bye to David and his son Ian, and talked to Randal about what he did yesterday: dinner with his parents, reading, other stuff he can't remember. Jen says that her blog's been empty for a while, but that's okay - I really should check others' blogs, yikes! Benjamin and Joshua were so cute running around, and Joshua initially refused his own birthday card - silly boy! When he said "no" and tried to bat it away, I told him to give it to Mommy (Maxine) then since Daddy (Tim) was busy registering for the walkathon. His little brother Keenan looked so cute in his baby carrier, so I joined Sheena and Chalaine in cooing over him. We joked that he could stay under the red cover for a week - he even had a blue octopus to look at for entertainment! (the rest of the cage had a BIT of cover provided by blue tarps, but it wasn't much) He squeezed my finger and seemed to respond to what we were saying to him - he had cute pants, all right! Talked to Billy about Stella expecting another kid around December 29: Benjamin will probably be jealous! Peter gave Benjamin a Skagway (Alaska) train whistle from Lesley; he tried blowing in it to produce noise, but only came close once. Lung power will take time to develop, I think! (he's not even two yet)

Jeremy says he'll try making olive oil-jasmine soap next week, and will cook a lot tonight so he has leftovers as a break from pork fluff on rice. I know what he means when he says it's good for one night, but not all the time! Gave Kevin his birthday card, and talked about friends for a bit. Tony asked if people were back from Mexico yet (he probably wanted to see my sister), so I said they'd been back for two weeks. He hasn't been around since he's been working a lot, so it's understandable that he doesn't know! Eventually, we all went off to Sunday School - a tired Maxine told Joshua to thank me for the birthday card, and also to give me a hug. He's so cute, and Maxine's tired since her kids are keeping her up at night!

Went to the toddler Sunday School, where everyone was back - three of them (Wilson / Rachel / Sean) will graduate pretty soon, leaving Amanda by herself! (although I think toddler Amos will join her, being two now) Sean was most amused by the drawing on their homework: bricks of the Jericho wall tumbling down after people marched around it! "BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! HAHAHAHA!" We had green frog candies for snack again, and I had to eat Sean's after he tasted it and decided it wasn't for him. (I know autistic people sometimes have texture issues...) At least this time, I didn't have to get my fingers all sticky after prying it out of his hand! I asked Rachel if she remembered my friend from last week; when she said she did, I then asked if she liked him wearing her bead necklace. She said yes, and added that it was funny. That would have made an interesting picture, haha. (like him trying on my glasses at Eric's later!) After that, I heard Sean's big brother Ian singing a nonsense song about his cheese crackers - he showed me the crackers, and told me that Sean was four now. Cute kids, for sure!

Talked to Jeff, Anita, and Joey for a while afterwards. Jeff mentioned that he'd seen my boyfriend last week, Anita offered me a cupcake, and we talked about Michelle still being sick from Mexico - Jeff joked that he should send her a message asking if this were a nine-month virus that would last a lifetime! (it would be funny if this pregnancy joke actually turned out to be TRUE, haha!) Anita and I reminisced about our Daniel camps (TENTING AND OUTHOUSES, JOEY - NO LODGES WITH WASHROOMS!) and said that Joe and Jason had been bad boys then: capsizing canoes, dunking Stella near a wall, etc. Those were definitely good times! Joey talked to Anita about a "psycho" kid named Jordan who seems overly clingy and emotional. ("You can't get an Awana dollar since you haven't done five sections!" "Give me the dollar and I'll do them later!" "It doesn't work that way." "Fine, I won't do them then!" *kid cries and clings to Anita, while she thinks GET OFF ME!*) Summertime Awana must be a barrel of laughs with these kids around, haha. Anita said that she could feel her stomach moving as the baby kicked, and mentioned that Emily L. thought it looked unsettling: it probably does! Oh well, at least it's alive in there and will come out around November 27!

Dodged Samantha, Ryan, Ethan, Rosanna, and Alina on the way upstairs - I went outside, where Steph was surprised to see me since she thought I'd gone to Pho already. (I'd seen Mom while talking to Jeff / Anita / Joey, and she said we were going to Pho - if she expected me to follow after her, she was mistaken!) Nope, I was just talking to good friends for a while! Tony and Jon joined us a bit later - #24 for me and sister, #9 for Jon, and Karen's carrot soup / rice / meat thing for Tony... then we introduced him to our unique (?) way of showing sibling affection: FISTS AND DEATH THREATS! I remembered that Stanley wanted to do a version of DINE AND DASH on Friday, but Eric and I dissuaded him from it - we have an interesting comical relationship with this restaurant, and they KNOW we come from the church just two doors down! Good thing they didn't have the durian shake he wanted! Steph mentioned that Grandma had seen me and Eric at the Pho place on Friday night, and Jon said that she'd interrupted their committee meeting just afterwards because she wanted to give him some food that she didn't like! Ah, what can you do about old ladies? She probably thought it was a big group of friends just hanging out downstairs in the basement, so there wasn't anything wrong with interrupting them! Crazy Big G! Jon also fielded a call from Christon: guitar group is canceled tomorrow, despite Erin's wish that it wouldn't be! Of course, Darren can also learn on his own if he's motivated enough!

Talked about Tony overworking himself at Wal-Mart, even with the two weeks notice: guess he's a self-imposed sucker for punishment if the manager can persuade him to work overtime AND if he doesn't allow himself to eat in eight straight hours of action! (for example, he just had a bowl of noodles for the entire day yesterday!) He cares about the people in his job, unfortunately! My siblings and I all gave him various suggestions: water, a granola bar, bananas (even if Wal-Mart doesn't sell produce), forcing himself to take at least a five-minute break to eat SOMETHING, etc. Next weekend will be epic for him: he goes to work at Wal-Mart in New West at 4 on Saturday, somehow has to teleport himself to Crystal Mall in Burnaby by 10:30 for his overnight security job, go to church in uniform (DON'T STAY AT THE BACK DOOR!) and not fall asleep during service, then go to Wal-Mart afterwards and not collapse there. We figure he can die on Monday instead, haha.

At least with September coming up, he'll have school and Awana - he's done Awana before, with 150 to 200 kids! Crazy club numbers... he'll know me, Melia, Joey, and I'm not sure who else. I recalled Andrew's MSN message asking about Awana's start date: Steph thinks she overheard Auntie Rebecca saying it started the week after the walkathon (Sept. 15), which is probably a good thing since it conflicted with that event last year! I don't think I went to the first Awana meeting last year because Sam's family was going to the walkathon and would be out all day. Gotta get something into gear in the next three weeks! RICHMOND PEOPLE, WHERE ARE YOU?! Haha. (I could bus like I did a few years back, too... we'll see!)

After lunch, Jon went off to beer / the PNE while my sister and I went to Uncle Sam's mom's house (really Auntie Kathy's place) and feigned polite interest in her health issues and this HUGE 2-kilogram container of whey protein. The Winnie the Pooh doll with a diaper on it was amusing, though! We also entertained ourselves by doing some more sibling affection acts, and hitting each other (playfighting!) with the blue / Tigger massagers. Steph said that she was one of the offering counters today, and saw two cheques for rather sizable amounts: hey, if you can do that from the right place, go right ahead! Mom wanted to get beef jerky after spending an hour sitting around discussing health / whey protein / lack of appetite, but Steph wanted to get to the South Arm gym, which closes at 5 on Sundays.

It was 3:30 when I got home to a bunch of Farrah email mixed in with everything else! Eric had sent me two "Cougar and Cougee" pictures from last week's "lunch of doom" - in my reply to him, I had to comment on Gmail's targeted ads. One of them was for a cougar mascot costume, so I wrote: "Before you get any ideas in your head, I AM NOT A COUGAR MASCOT!!! It's bad enough that my mom wanted to buy some leopard thing for me from the dollar store recently!" (she ended up not buying it because she was confused about the difference between cougars and leopards - same family, but not the same thing!)

P.S. Like Diven's, my toilet has issues. Stupid water refills and tanks... not an emergency, but I let people KNOW! AIYOH!

Picture time!

A cute picture of Korey and me at the church grad banquet last week:

These other two are from the "lunch of doom" last week:
