Raymond got OWNED by a trap door in my dream - YES!!!!

Amy McLaren added me as a friend on Facebook - I have NO idea who that is, so I'll ignore it. She's a friend of David L.'s, but I'm wary about that kind of thing after his friend Chris R.! TMI Note: I hope this redrum STOPS soon, since it's been a week already!

Had a dream where all I can remember is being asked to look after a bunch of kids in a large beige room. I put out a bunch of toys for them, and they played with those for a while. Then Jon came in with a bunch of yellow and brown blocks, plus some other toys which were related to the BC Lions and CFL football somehow. The kids didn't really want to play with them, but I noticed Raymond coming into the room to talk to my dad, then going out again. I whispered to Eric that he should somehow create a diversion to get Raymond to come in again, right by the windows where an invisible trapdoor waited to plunge him down a few floors. Eric's diversion worked, and we all cheered! Not really sure why I had that one, hahaha!

Facebook quiz taken from Veronica:

Leslie took the What painting are you? quiz and the result is Magritte's Son of Man. You are a technical and inquisitive person. You live to challenge people's ideas of reality. You're very witty, with a dry, even sardonic sense of humor. You consider yourself a realist.

Bible quizzes, spelling tests, not forgiving easily, and DIARRHEA!

This thing JUST restarted! Edit: And again barely ten minutes later!

Leslie just took the "What Bible verse fits you best" quiz and the result is Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men... Proverbs 2:12. Your choice to seek God in all your ways has developed you into a wise person.

Leslie just took the "New Testament Knowledge Test" quiz and the result is New Testament Scholar. You have read, studied, and remembered the New Testament extensively. It appears to have been your passion for some time.

Leslie just took the "How well do you know your Bible?" quiz and the result is Jesus would be proud!!! You know quite a lot about The Bible. Congratulations!!! But, you need to remember that The Word of God is inexhaustible, and so you can never know all that you need to know, or all that you should know. Continue to study The Bible. In it, you will find solutions to all of life's problems, wisdom, knowledge, and strength. You will discover true love: love that was so great that God laid down His life for you. Jesus loves you, and He has a plan for your life. To find out that plan, continue to hear from Him as He speaks to you through His Word. "The Holy Scriptures are able to make thee wise unto Salvation, through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God." - 2 Timothy 3:15-16.

Leslie just took the "What Hymn are you?" quiz and the result is My Jesus, my Savior. You consider yourself to be an up-to-date Christian who enjoys worship in a contemporary style. You wouldn't dream of referring to the "H" word, preferring instead to enthuse about "praise items."

Facebook quizzes taken from Evelyn and Kaili:

Leslie took the SPELLING TIME!!! quiz and got the result: A+.

Leslie took the Hard spelling test quiz and got the result: Super. (Again, only three questions. The words were harder, but COME ON!)

Leslie took the Capital Cities Test quiz and got the result: B (Capitals Master).

Leslie took the How Easily Do You Forgive? quiz and got the result: You Know How to Hold A Grudge. You don't forgive people once crossed. Once it happens, you move on. You have no time to deal with rude and selfish people.

Leslie just took the "Which Bible Character and you are most alike?" quiz and the result is St. Peter, the great apostle.

Leslie just took the "What kind of princess are you?" quiz and the result is Snotty Princess. You are very beautiful. You love yourself, your money, and your prized possessions. You have many friends, but you're not sure they like you for who you are. You tell people what to do, and you don't treat people how you want to be treated.

Leslie just took the "What flower are you? (Girls Only)" quiz and the result is Dull, Like Grass... You're boring. Lots of people think you're dull, but they won't tell you that. You usually hang out with the Weed type. (I do NOT!)

Poo nugget for this weekend: Number Three - Synonyms: Butt Piss, Liquid Poo, The Runs, Oil Spill, Hershey Squirts, Montezuma's Revenge, Chocolate Thunder, Operation Marination, Operation Evacuation, Releasing The Hounds, The Nile, Poo Stew, Gravy Poo, Rectum Rapids, It's Raining Poo, Deuce Juice, Turd Tea.

Stupid delays and accidents! / Scavenging at Granville Island

What a day I had to lead me into the first one of the eighth month! Not surprised that this thing restarted while I was out! Eric says Kieran wants to keep his computer, so maybe I'll see about another avenue I may have... but at least it seems cooler temperature-wise tonight!

I went to take the bus in PLENTY of time to meet Eric this afternoon - however, there was a very annoying accident just FIVE MINUTES from the stop where I normally wait for him! Can't these accidents happen somewhere ELSE?! Man, I was NOT in a good mood, and thought it was a total waste of my time to even come out if these things keep happening to me! (I ultimately got through about 200 pages of my library book, but that wasn't the point...) The bus driver tried to lighten the mood by joking about the heat and things like that on the mike to the entire bus, but I just wanted him to SHUT THE HELL UP! (I might have appreciated it more had I not been delayed and HOT!) I rode the 410 all the way to the 22nd St. Skytrain Station, since the bus detoured along Westminster Highway - I knew I should have disembarked when the bus stopped by the Dairy Queen FOR the accident! (especially when the bus got to the Highway 91 offramp, and into New Westminster)

I instantly thought I should call Eric to inform him of what happened, so in I went to the station. Since I only had a $20 bill on me to cover my later dinner, I had to ask for a quarter from a lady who sighed, rolled her eyes, and said "Oh, geez!" But she gave it to me, which was the goal... I wasn't impressed with her reaction, OF COURSE. Prayed that Eric would at least pick up the darn phone even if it said "PAY PHONE" on the Caller ID before I started swearing into the phone. He did, so I let out a stream of verbiage to tell him what happened, and ask what I should do. He asked where I was, so I told him - his advice was to take the Skytrain to Broadway / Commercial, and to get a Subway order there. I almost got on the Eastbound train instead of the Westbound (which would have made my predicament more pronounced), but I luckily read the signs before any train came into view.

Got to the destination FINALLY, and had to ask the A&W guy where the nearest Subway was. From previous trips to this location, I knew there was one around, but wasn't quite sure where it was. (I don't go all the way to Broadway / Commercial when I want Subway!) He said it was near the Starbucks across the street, and I at least knew where THAT was located. Found Eric inside and beginning an order of the usual (he thought he'd beat me there...), so went in front of a lady to be with him. Didn't note her reaction, but hey... we were finally together! (and I don't mean that in an obsessive way... it was just an EXTREME RELIEF!) I'm not one for excessive hugging, particularly in the middle of a small Subway, so I decided to get 9-Grain Honey Oat bread and turkey / ham... that stuff is GOOD! Was surprised when Eric paid for mine, calling it "compensation for ending up on the wrong end of town" - fair enough, and I did thank him!

After pausing to eat SOME of the sandwiches (and wishing I'd bought some liquid refreshment at the A&W), we were off to Granville Island. Had trouble finding parking (as usual!), but Eric had fun joking that I was evil or something. When we DID find parking, our group had disappeared from in front of the Keg, so Eric called Vanessa. She came up to us, and said we owed her money for our respective grad banquet tickets. I told her that I didn't have it (a special Ziploc bag full of coins), so Eric reminded me that I'd offered him a $20 bill earlier for the dinner (left the food in the car) - I had, and said that she was missing out on exact change in coins! Of course, I gave her the $20 anyhow, and received a ticket in return.

Eric said we should split up (but you're MINE!!!! - in a good way!), and I didn't mind going with Jeremy / Richie / Shally / Grace / Vivian! (I later found out that he had been preventing me from going with Raymond's group before I noticed he was there. Despite Eric's joking about certain things, he does look after me!) We did do a lot of walking to find things on Danielle and Vanessa's list of forty, but Shally and Jeremy both asked if I was doing okay. Jeremy had been on his feet all day (at the warehouse?), so was pretty tired by the time we decided to meet everyone at Nathan's. Sea Villages, three bridges (we "cheated" by using three written "BRIDGES" - we were DESPERATE!), dragons, Performance Works, steel A, "concrete thinking," a yellow crane, psychic reading, cabs and drivers, foreign license plates, and more...

We had to watch out for bird poop at the kiddy water park, and I thought that I should NOT have worn my new shoes (which are scuffed now) on this outing! Let's just say that we saw parts of the Island that we'd never seen before! When members of my group greeted others in the Fellowship going around the Island, I thought we shouldn't talk to them since they were our COMPETITION! Yes, I even thought this about my brother and sister-in-law when I saw them briefly! I was seriously overdue for a drink when we decided to meet at Nathan's. Still had enough lungpower to yell at people and have myself heard from twenty feet away, though! On the way to Richie's car, I said hi to Melia - she asked how I was, so I said I was thirsty. To my surprise, she offered me 3/4 of the water bottle in her bag - SWEET! Of course, I thanked her too - that gave me enough rest from the parched feeling to talk to Richie on the way to Nate's. (discussed his job, Jon moving out, leases, moving, and more)

Got to Nathan's, and discovered a sign on the door: "KNOCK VERY QUIETLY! SSSH! KIDDIES ARE SLEEPING!" Ah yes, the Speidels were at the house, which fact I forgot a couple hours later when Jon wanted to use the upstairs washroom and found it occupied, and suggested he use the downstairs one. Whoops. Said hi to Jon, who thought I'd come with Eric (I didn't know where he was), and hadn't seen me - well, I hadn't talked to him when I did see him for thirty seconds! Since I was still thirsty, I sat down and had like nine straight mini-cups of Coke and Superstore passion fruit pop. Talked to Alan, Tracy, Cindy, Citrus, Dylan, Christon, Jon, Harmony, Deb, Jose, Johnny, Vivian, Richie, Grace, Calla, Stanford, Shally, Nathan, and others: Eric's eventual bee sting, ambulances, stone, working in the heat, lemonade, chips for dinner (I finished my Subway when Eric brought it in), cherries, the Olympics, TMI about the heat and other things, the fireworks / corn maze / paintball tomorrow, movies, wedding planning, Erin / Ben, Grouse Grind on Sunday, BRUNO compared with BORAT, UP, going into shock, family dinners, music books, sightreading, going to the beach, massages, Phil thinking Aeropostale / Abercrombie was retarded on teens already (and then his WIFE came out of the store being HAPPY she bought a shirt from there!), and other things.

I had to correct Alan when he came up with a weird version of "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?" Everyone at the table was looking at me very intently when I gave them this nugget of wisdom, and Grace said I'd done a good job. For sure, since (as I told her later about Alan saying that Eric didn't need an ambulance) you should probably never take him seriously most times! Danielle and Vanessa finished judging photos about an hour into our hangout time, so we looked at that plus a slideshow! After a while, people started leaving, or trying to do chin-ups on the bar outside Daniel's old room. We kept asking if Eric was okay to drive since his leg had been injured, but he said he'd be fine... I was especially concerned since he had to drive me home as well as himself. On the way home, we talked about grad banquet, rides, faraway places, shooting people in paintball, Citrus going DOWN, and other things.

SWITCHED restaurant, Disney princess or heroine, July 2009 BBT Tally

Called Eric, who said that I should go to the Fellowship scavenger hunt, so I'll meet him at 6. *sigh* At least it's not as stinking hot as the last couple of days, but I'll still repeat my clothing choices, this time consciously. Guess we'll have Subway for dinner on our way to Granville Island! Haven't been there in a while, so it should be interesting from that angle only.

Switched Restaurant [TF, TG, BE] by boykillboy
You walk in and are asked your name
Welcome to Switched, what would you like?
And do you want to supersize that?
Okay, what would you like to drink?
Any sauce with that?
You walk over to your table and start to eat,When you begin to feel your skin itching wildly
Suddenly, your hairturns long and curly
And turnsBlack with blond streaks
Unknowing, you start on your drink,And find your form turned to that of a petite woman
As if all of this wasn't weird enough,You gain a lot of weight and begin to grow big ears and a trunk, as you're now an elephant girl.
You sigh out, "This couldn't get any worse!"Bad thing to say, as suddenly you find yourself completely naked
Realising what you heard about Switched was true,
(if you carried on)You go to the counter to ask why you've changed, but find you have severe cravings for more! Same again, please!

Facebook quiz taken from Leslie:

Leslie completed the quiz "Which Disney Princess / Heroine are you most like?" with the result Belle. You are most like Belle! You are the type of girl who is always willing to give someone a chance. You look deeper into a person then most do, and often end up finding that something special in people no one else can find. Your bravery and compassion are a wonderful mix not found in many people, and because of it, you are loved by virtually everyone. Some people may make fun of you for being friends with less popular people, but in the end, you will have a happy ending surrounded with people who love you. Be careful not to let others bring you down for being different... it is what makes you special.

I'm 98% naughty, and have unique brains?! Okay!

This thing restarted again, so close to midnight! Yuck!

Facebook quizzes taken from Jane, Candy, and Laura:

Leslie just took the "What kind of guy do YOU attract?" quiz and the result is The cute class clown. He knows how to make you laugh out loud... and loves it! He makes you feel comfortable to be yourself around him, and that makes him a really great guy to fall for. :)

Leslie just took the "Your personality in one word" quiz and the result is Shy. Don't be afraid to speak your mind, most times... people want to hear it!

Leslie just took the "What's unique about you?" quiz and the result is Brains. You have a great intelligence. You are very clever, but modest. You use your brains to get you where you want to be. You will always succeed in life.

Leslie just took the "How depressed are you deep inside?" quiz and the result is Stressed. You are slightly depressed, but your depression is caused by stress you either have from work or a person you truly hate.

Leslie just took the "Which Quote Is The Quote For You?" quiz and the result is You do what you want.. You don't care what other people are saying about you. You are an independent person, and don't let what others say about you get to you. You live your life the way you want to, and know that everything happens for a reason.

Leslie took the What's your Sixth Sense? quiz and got the result: Clairsentience. Clairsentience is the ability to "feel" things. It's that "something's there, but I can't see it" ability. A lot of people have this ability but do not know that they possess it A tickling sensation on the hand or face during meditation. A pressure on the top of the head when talking or connecting with a Spirit. Hairs on the back of the neck standing on end when a spirit is near. A sensation in the left side of the face when talking with a spirit. A floral smell... A movement as a flick of white, purple, or blue light. Seeing shadows in the periphery of your field of vision.

Leslie took the How Naughty Are You? quiz and got the result: Extremely Naughty. (98% Naughty?! HAHAHAHAHA!)

Nevada shoes and chili petite pants

I can't be the first person to go out in this heatwave without an undershirt OR a bra! Went shopping again today to see if I could get some chili / blue petite pants (I like the material / leg length!) that I saw yesterday. That way, I don't have to ask my mom to shorten them! I got those at Sears because the warehouse clearance sale was still going on. Might I add that I *hate* how designers assume that EVERYONE has long legs - nope, not me! Noticed that the escalator was blocked off, and there were signs apologizing for the so-called inconvenience of taking the escalator... HAHAHA! Definitely not an annoyance to ME! *winks and grins*

Also got an inexpensive new pair of shoes since I noticed (on multiple trips to the fitting rooms) that my yellow ones from the thrift store last year were falling apart. You don't want to go around on shoes which don't provide you the foot support that you need, after all. Tried to find some which were relatively inexpensive, fit well, and were NOT pink / lilac / kiddy shoes - I found some which were blue and white, so I'm satisfied. However, I did go upstairs for absolutely no reason since the shoe department was downstairs - saw two small sisters playing with kiddy plush toys, and looked at the towels and pillowcases. Spent some time in Fairweather, too.

Since I'd heard that it was National Cheesecake Day today, I went to White Spot to see if they had any in strawberry or blueberry. I bypassed waiting for a table (and there were thirty others!) by opting to sit at the counter instead. Some guy was just finishing up a PROVINCE, but I decided to wait till he was done to snatch it. Sure, I could have asked for it, but I really don't like doing that for some reason. "Causing trouble" conditioning, begone! Read all about the CRITICAL MASS people - so annoying! No more clothes shopping for me right now, that's for sure!

ZELDA characters and Caesar salad

Raekwon, Rebel, Romaine, and Ruger

Computer restarted AGAIN, not even an hour later! HOW UNPLEASANT!

This is from What Not to Name Your Baby by Joe Borgenicht.


Racer: One who takes part in a race. While the "winner" will definitely be a "Racer," most "Racers" will be "losers."

Raekwon (WRECK-one) - You will never want to lend this child your car.

Raider: A well-dressed villain whose designs on the ancient treasure will surely be foiled by our fedora-wearing hero.

Ralph: To vomit. "Are you going to Ralph?"

Rameses: An Egyptian pharaoh with an absolute sense of self-importance. Also, a fine brand of condoms, often ribbed.

Ramon: Delicious, inexpensive Chinese noodles that are easily prepared by adding boiling water. Popular with those pursuing a college education.

Randall / Randy: The kid who couldn't take his hand off his privates. Likely to become the unpopular guy at the bar. Perpetually horny.

Rebel: Non-conforming and fond of the color grey. Given to loud vocal expression.

Red: A godless communist who hates everything you stand for as an American.

Regent: Someone who governs in someone else's stead. Also, a morning talk show host; the one who's only slightly less annoying than his ex-cohost.

Rémy: This kid is likely to end up wearing an old raincoat and living on a park bench thanks to his inordinate fondness for inebriating spirits.

Reuben: A greasy sandwich made of corned beef, sauerkraut, and Swiss cheese. Serve warm.

Rex: A great name for a Labrador or golden retriever.

Rhett: A dashing Charlestonian who offers Scarlett O'Hara fifty dollars in gold for the pleasure of a dance.

Ricardo: A wealthy island owner who toyed with the lives of others and dabbled in the supernatural. Especially enjoyed entertaining small people. See also God.

Richard / Dick: Should never be used if your surname is Long, Harden, Wipe, Wad, or Less.

River: A talented young actor with a taste for the illicit, destined to flame out at an early age. Name should be avoided if you live in Arizona.

Robert / Bob: Fat aunts will suggest he be a UK policeman every Halloween. Also, the butt of jokes about the armless, legless man who attempts to water-ski.

Rodney / Rod: Another pitifully phallic name reminiscent of the Washington Monument. Jokes will be merciless.

Romaine: A type of oddly-shaped lettuce popular with washed-up sitcom actors.

Romer: An explorer who wanders aimlessly.

"I drank 40 litres of chocolate milk a week, and 9 litres of orange juice a day!"

Since this thing decided to restart while I was in the shower, I'll bring you another installment of crazy David Shaler messages. This one is from May 2007.

Do I look great, or what? What a difference a few months make. I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. My collagen is defective. It's connective tissue disease, and I'm intolerant to carbohydrates and sugars because of it. I've learned a lot. Also... there is another part to my health that I need to talk about because I *NEED* some opinions; but, at the same time, these symptoms, not associated with Ehlers-Danlos, are weird, in a sci-fi sort of way. Can I tell you with the understanding that I'm not full of it, and that I really am telling the truth?

There's no cure. My collagen is drying up, so I'm becoming hypermobile, and I can stretch my skin like an elastic band. Ehlers-Danlos is the official name for being double-jointed, except most people aren't aware that it's an illness, not a talent. Dave French was showing off his double-jointedness on the first day of grade 8. He doesn't know he has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

I had a nose job in 1996. It healed in a week. Bruising and swelling gone. A year and a half later, I had maxillofacial surgery (jaw & TMJ). I was supposed to stay in bed for 3 months, and then it would take another 6 months to fully heal. I was back in school on the second day, eating hamburgers and pizza. A week later, I saw my surgeon for a follow-up, and there was no evidence I had surgery. My jaw was solid, and there was no bruising and swelling. A few years ago, I grabbed the wrong end of a heat gun and sustained second degree burns to my right hand. That was fully healed by the morning. I didn't think a lot of these incidences until a couple of months ago; I burned my finger with a lighter. It wasn't a bad burn; but, it definitely shouldn't have faded within a few hours. I know people can be considered fast healers; but, this is a little much.

I also have a very strong memory; so strong, I am able to recall details from every single day of my life. EVERYTHING! To some extent, even thoughts and emotions. Even the weather.

There's something weird going on with my hearing. For example, I can leave my cell phone on my bed upstairs and hear it vibrate while I'm downstairs with the TV blaring. It was rough during high school. I'll let you in on a little secret, I wasn't the most popular of all people. People were always talking about me or making some sort of joke about me. I always wished people didn't have to be so loud about; it made me feel bad and I really did not need to hear it. However, they really weren't being loud and I actually wasn't within hearing range. It has taken many years of hearing things no one else hears to figure out I'm hearing far away sounds. I did a little experiment where I would have someone call me with their cell. I'd put mine on the carpet and it would start vibrating; I'd hear it, they wouldn't. But, it's also random. Sometimes, I'll go to my phone and there'll be messages waiting and I didn't hear anything, while other times, I hear it constantly vibrating halfway across the house.

My body operates on a 48 hour sleep/wake cycle. I need 3 hours of sleep every 2 days. I'm not tired, nor is that lack of sleep having any affect on my health or cognitive abilities.

I also see images of the future in my daydreams. I don't know, however, that they are images of the future until they play out in real life; but, I'm starting to get a grip on how to differentiate.

As well, I am always texting, emailing, or initiating conversations with what the other person is thinking in their head. Or, I'll just suddenly contact someone at the same time they're thinking about me. It's something people point out to me because it's not just random; it's all the time.

I can also conjure up great amounts of strength. Nothing superhuman; but, I'm not even just a little stronger than what you would think my muscle mass would allow. Even as a 7 year old, I was able to rearrange my bedroom furniture.

Finally... I'm aging at a much slower rate than all of you. It's not a matter of aging well; looking young for my age. Except for a few little spurts here and there, puberty literally didn't kick into full swing until I was 26 years old. I'm 31 years old, and I don't even look 25. At 20, I looked 14. You remember? I didn't just look young back in McNair; I *WAS* young, physically and emotionally.

I'm not crazy. This all adds up to something more than just a few random coincidences. This is something that is happening to me as it becomes more and more intense with each passing year, usually increasing in severity from September to November.

Actually... double-jointed = hypermobility = Ehlers-Danlos. My symptoms were so severe because I am intolerant to sugar and I drank 40 litres of chocolate milk a week, and then when I thought I became lactose intolerant, I was drinking 9 litres of orange juice a day. Had I not done that to myself, I never would have known there was anything serious wrong. Dave French may be suffering from all sorts of problems like joint pain, insomnia, social anxiety; however, none of his problems may be serious enough for him to even think anything is wrong. When you are born a certain way, it can be very difficult to see that something is wrong. It took me nearly 30 years to clue in.

It's too hot for miso soup... but I got shorts and jeans on sale!

I went to the mall to escape the heat, but I forgot that the mall kinda makes you want to spend money... eep! Got some sushi from the place in the food court, along with a little bowl of miso soup which came free. I couldn't believe that I'd said "yes" when the lady asked if I wanted any, since it was very hot outside. Still, I drank the soup because I didn't want to waste it! Then I went to Coles to look through some of the kiddy books, and hit Old Navy just to see what they had since I've been looking at shorts off and on. Can't believe they're advertising a "Back to School" sale ALREADY! I heard Michael Jackson's BILLIE JEAN, which took me back to my brother's wedding night. They had colorful panties, let's just say!

After that, I had a pineapple bubble tea from Tazza... oh, so refreshing! Went into Coast Mountain Sports to look around, too. Since the Bay's panties proved too expensive for me before ($10 for ONE pair?!), I was pleased to discover that Sears STILL had their 3-pack for $13. However, Sears apparently didn't have much air con... actually, I would have been happier had the entire mall felt like an icebox! I looked around the store and found some jeans which fit and which were $10 off - I'd found three pairs of shorts for the same price, even if I was blind in trying to find the fitting room! Their bras were very colorful, too! I decided to get out of there before I was tempted to spend any more money, even if what I bought was on sale!

Got home to discover a missed phone call from Andrea, so I called her back. She had been wanting to get together with me in Richmond since her car broke down and she had to go there to fix it anyhow. But it turns out that she was STRANDED without a car since it wasn't a "quick fix" kind of thing! She's not sure when she'll get together with me because she heard some news about Chuck's mom and uterus cancer (cancer for the second time?!) - of course she has to go to Toronto next week to be there! We'll see what happens, though! Now, back to work on the project!

Leslie's just got their Serial Killer Name from Name Generators. I just got my Serial Killer Name. It's Leslie "Woodchipper" Gillet. (Reminds me of FARGO and the Helle Crafts murder case!)

Facebook quizzes taken from Steve B., Steve L., and Dana:

Leslie took the Which Gilligan's Island Character are you? quiz and the result is Mrs. Howell. Sweet and innocent, with a sophisticated charm, you light up the world with your very presence!

Leslie completed the quiz "What horror movie psycho are you?" with the result Jason. You are Jason, the psychotic serial killer that walks around wearing a hockey mask, and cutting up unsuspecting teenagers just looking for a good time. Your favorite day of the year is Friday the 13th, and your only hobby is playing with your chainsaw.

Leslie took the How Well Do You Spell? quiz and got the result: Spelling Bee Champion. You really know how to spell. Homonyms are no challenge for you, nor are words that seem to go against the routine spelling rules of the English language. You're the go-to person if your friend wants to know how to spell a word, and have a vocabulary larger than the average person. (Only three questions?! Make these things more challenging, at least!)

Sabrina following me around in a dream / Kissing like a woman

All I remember of my dream is that Sabrina L. was following me and my family around when we were trying to find an interesting restaurant. When we found the place, Carol J. was there to show us a list having to do with farting. Harmony loved the list, haha. Dunno why I had that one! I want to work more on the project, but I also need air con. That's it... I'm outta here! (and why can't Richmond Centre have a BIG bookstore and shops like Metrotown does?!)

You Kiss Like a Woman

For you, kissing is a very personal act. It's all about making a connection.

You are somewhat picky about kissing, and a bad kiss can ruin the moment for you.

You prefer to take it slow with kissing. You find that attraction is strongest when it builds slowly.

Kissing is best when you already feel close to your partner. Kissing gets better with time.

BRUNO and squatting for hemorrhoids

Krista and Vanessa picked me up a bit after 7, and we were off to see BRUNO at Silvercity. Talked about interesting things on the way there, and the movie was kinda what I expected it might be. Definitely not something to take your parents to, in any event! The "German" was bastardized into something not really recognizable, and the whole thing was just AWFUL in a good way! Got some laughs out of it, but the montage was pretty crazy. We went to Tapioca Express (just a few doors down from Richmond Sushi) for some bubble tea later - I got mango, and Krista got jasmine. I also got some meat sauce noodles (which weren't bad for $4), since I needed some calories from not being hungry enough to eat much all day... it's the sapping heat! Forgot what Vanessa purchased, but it did have tiny pearls! Discussed more interesting girly things, as well as things relating to snakes / books / blurry Fort St. John theaters / devious plans / Victoria. Yes, we were in the mood for water!

Got home to tell Corey that I'd seen the movie:

[23:03:43] Corey: so are you scarred for life? :P
[23:04:10] Flami: learning about martyrs: funny you should say that...
[23:04:50] Corey: so what was the most horrifying part? :P
[23:07:53] Flami: the part where he was visiting the psychic with the crystal ball!
[23:09:26] Corey: that part was already done in the show and was a LOT better... it showed the reaction of the psychic guy a lot more and wasn't so graphic... that's the funny part, the weird look the psychic guy gives and what he says after.. they didn't show much of that in the movie
[23:23:22] Corey: I would have thought the midget buttsex montage, or the review meeting for his show would be the worst for you :P
[23:32:00] Flami: I didn't even realize it was a buttsex montage till it almost ended... and the focus group scene was TERRIBLE!
[23:38:16] Corey: what? they were using slingshots and machines to buttsex each other for several minutes
[23:38:25] Corey: it was pretty clear :P
[23:44:18] Flami: oh, it was pretty terrible... I didn't want to realize that yes, it was buttsex :P
[23:46:30] Corey: well what else would it be?
[23:51:35] Flami: : I was like, "This can't be what I think it is... wait... HAHAHA... oh crap... HAHAHA... it is?!"
[23:59:05] Corey: well, go download the TV series :P it's better. the Bruno stuff there is 100% buttsex-free
[00:00:26] Corey: there are a few where he just shows that fashion people are idiots... he goes around asking people after a show what they thought the inspiration for the nautical theme in the show was.. they all say: "OHHH YEAH, THE NAUTICAL THEME REPRESENTED BLAH BLAH BLAH," and had some big elaborate speech about what that might mean
[00:00:56] Corey: then he finds the lady that ran the show.. "what show did YOU watch? There was no nautical theme!"
[00:01:21] Corey: so he's going around asking people that just watches a show to explain things that didn't exist in it, and they all have an answer :P
[00:03:12] Corey: there's another where he's talking to a guy about his show... he asks him about how calm the show was... "oh yeah, it was so calm, blah blah blah" ... then how wild it was... "oh yeah, it's so wild, blah blah" ... he just keeps asking him opposites, and the guy explains why he took the direction of the show that way..... despite being asked things that obviously contradict each other, he comes up with reasons for why he made his show that way....
[00:03:25] Corey: the last question was "do you believe in consistency?" "no"

Poo nugget for Wednesday, July 29: Dr. Stool Says - Score One For The Squatters - In 1987, Dr. Berko Sikirov published a study showing that hemorrhoid sufferers experienced regression of their hemorrhoids when they went from using sitting toilets to squatting.

Sure, let's see BRUNO... I want AIR CON, dammit!

Vanessa just buzzed me on Facebook chat when I wasn't at the computer. So then I called her instead: sure, I'm up to see Brüno with her and Krista! Maybe we'll have bubble tea afterwards, too. Discussed church, bras, the heat, the hot sun, and more.

[18:07:50] Flami: learning about martyrs: someone just invited me to see BRUNO... should I?
[18:08:49] Corey: I watched it the other night, go for it.. it's not nearly as explicit as I thought it would be. all buttsex is censored and there's not a lot of it, really :P
[18:09:29] Corey: his Bruno segments from his TV show are better, though... this one feels way too staged... the whole point of the character is to get reactions out of other people, not to be funny by himself :P
[18:09:43] Corey: it has some funny stuff
[18:10:28] Flami: well, I would hope it's censored...
[18:15:21] Corey: oh yeah? why's that?
[18:15:35] Corey: movies usually aren't!
[18:16:00] Corey: he mostly does that to add a big censor bar to himself that makes him look like he has a lot more to cover up than there is :P
[18:16:15] Corey: anyway, go see it, it was a lot more tame than I expected it to be
[18:26:34] Flami: because it's BUTTSEX, duh!
[18:26:48] Corey: it's like Borat, but instead of harassing people as Borat, he does it as a really gay guy
[18:27:41] Corey: there aren't any extended buttsex scenes or whatever :P there's a big montage at the start, of inventive ways to have sex with his midget lover or whatever, but they're mostly clothed and there's censor bars on things... it's not that bad
[18:29:38] Flami: .... WHAT?!!! *calls Krista and Vanessa to cancel*
[18:29:57] Flami: as long as it's funnily done and sorta tasteful-ish...
[18:31:36] Corey: well, if the movie offends you, you don't get the joke :P you're not supposed to like his character or the stuff he does... the point is how the other people react to it... the character is a prank on anyone that would be offended by such a thing
[18:35:58] Flami: ah, okay. got it
[18:40:31] Corey: there's a bit from the TV series where he's on the beach and finds an RV full of some college's wrestling team, so he interviews them for his show (Funkyzeit mit Brüno!) ... and they wrestle with him, and he gets them to show off their muscles for him... and at one point, he convinces them to show their asses, and these guys do it for some reason.... he keeps making them yell and get crazy for the camera
[18:41:04] Corey: anyway... at the end, he says: "wow, you guys have been great! Do you have any final message for Austria's gay community?"
[18:41:23] Corey: "WHAT!??!?!"

"yeah, this is a gay show, you've been great!!"
[18:42:56] Corey: the movie is about Bruno going to America to try to get really famous
[18:45:19] Corey: so he interviews people and does various publicity stunts to try to get famous
[18:45:53] Flami: hahahahaha
[19:00:12] Corey: I don't think Borat or Bruno are amazing movies... but the characters (Borat mostly) have a ton of awesome stuff in the TV shows... check out Da Ali G Show for that. there's two separate shows, one season in the UK with a live audience (no Bruno, and Borat stuff is all pre-recorded, not live), and then he had two seasons of a US version of the show, which introduced Bruno.
[19:00:13] *** Auto-response sent to Corey: I am currently idle.
[19:02:07] Corey: it's all a lot more low-key and focused on interacting with real people and getting funny reactions out of them :P plus all the Ali G stuff, which is kind of the same.. Ali G is a gangsta rapper that thinks he's from Jamaica, and always talks about girls and smoking pot. he gets interviews with all kinds of scientists and government people, and acts like a complete moron
[19:03:03] Corey: sometimes they play along, sometimes they just can't deal with him being such a moron and get mad... either way, it's usually funny :P the Borat segments in both series are my favorite parts...
[19:04:16] Corey: there's one where he goes to an anti-fur rally in the UK, while wearing a badge that has something to do with hunting bears... this old lady is talking to him, then looks closer at his jacket and gets really pissed off... "THIS SAYS YOU KILL BEARS!!" "WHAT? YOU KILL BEARS!?!? YOU'RE EVIL!!"
[19:05:01] Corey: "no no, we love animals in Kazakhstan!" "then why do you kill them?!?!?" "eh.... for fun!"
[19:06:16] Corey: and with another lady, he talks about how they have a show about animals in Kazakhstan where they treat the animals so nice... then he goes on to explain that the show is about dressing the animals up in silly costumes, and heating the floor underneath them to make them jump up and down :P the lady wasn't too impressed
[19:07:22] Flami: going now, if I can find my keys

Dream: Washing a sink full of dishes, and Justin guilt trips

Steph sent us an interesting email, hehe - YAY! The computer just restarted - BOO! All I remember of my dream last night is Justin C. asking my mom how much money he owed her; it was around $1000 with the phone bill. Then I asked her the same thing, to which Justin commented: "Besides everything she went through to raise you?!" I wasn't impressed, but had to go wash a sink full of dishes left there by a bunch of lazy people. WHAT THE HECK?! I just got my phone bill today in the mail (after the dream), so paid that along with the Shaw bill. When I went outside to throw things in the garbage bin, I found that the heat outside is barely better than the temperature INSIDE! Makes me wish I had air con...

Got a phone call where the Caller ID showed the number only, and not the place / name that the call originated from. 1-402-982-0823, anyone? Google shows that it was from Omaha, Nebraska... WTF?!

You tend to have highly emotional fears. You worry that your whole world will fall apart.

Your life is fairly unstable right now. Your fears feel very vivid and very real.

Don't tag me in unflattering photos! / Fire in the Hole!

Quite apart from the LOCATION project, I've done a lot of LJ upkeep tonight like editing entries and tags, along with LJ notes - yay for little asterisks! (also cleared most of my LJ Inbox, which I should have done a LONG TIME AGO!) Tried some of the frozen cherries, which were good. I was just about to do something with the grapes when Candy called me unexpectedly, and that took about an hour and five minutes. Talked about her crab tattoo (with a little star on it), pentagrams, her Catholic mom, her four brothers / three sisters (some of whom have died), my seeming pre-occupied (editing?!), vacation, the dog Laxx and the cats Diana and Isis (I felt silly saying hi to the cats via speaker phone!), removing photo tags, cherries / peeling grapes, my coming there to Toronto one day, GROOVY FOOD, her coming here even if it's expensive, getting my birthday card five days after her birthday (she thanked me for it again.

Also discussed the quirky poo facts, our being relatively close and understanding each other, A Book of Pagan Prayer (Ceisiwr Serith - how DO you pronounce that?!), pagan prayers ("Lord of Death" and the "Goddess"?!), stupid people who should not exist, her husband George, NOT drinking a cream beverage like Bailey's after having beer all night like she did on her birthday (SO DRUNK!), and more. She has an idiot friend who's tagged a self-conscious person in a less-than-flattering photo, and hates Candy's personal tattoo. That is terrible! Apparently, I calmed her down since she was going to write something nasty on Christine's Facebook wall, haha.

Cartons with 24 copies of OUTLANDER, Sean in dreams, Claudia and avatars, painting the world

I have filled out a form to hopefully receive a free (?) carton with 24 copies of OUTLANDER for giveaway, and maybe a free copy of AN ECHO IN THE BONE... would be cool if I got it! All I remember about my dream last night is that little Sean was following me around a big parking lot, reading everything out loud. Cute!

Finally joined Claudia's (astrotre) community, ALL_AVATARS, too... since it's so inactive, I was easily able to view all the posts. She'd asked me in May 2004 if I'd join, but I declined on the grounds that the 486 liked to go boom and not be totally reliable when it came to lots of pictures. (I remember the devilish superimposition at Our Place all too well...) As time went by, I of course forgot about that request. I only came across it again because of the LOCATION project - YAY! Wonder if I can find her on Facebook... she was certainly very cool. :D

You Paint the World with Calming Colors

You are a true friend. You are very dependable.

Pearl Castle's posted hours do NOT make sense! / Balloon rupture and drugs

Steph called me at midnight to get me to look up Pearl Castle's hours since she and her friend Chantal wanted some bubble tea. The hours as posted on a site I found via Google did not make any sense. "11:30 PM to 12 AM" is certainly not going to bring you any business! Told her that a Pearl Castle would be opening up in the mall soon, which didn't help them right then, of course. Oh well, maybe next time she's in town - I believe she leaves tomorrow.

Facebook quiz taken from Amanda:

Leslie completed the quiz "What RENT character are you?" with the result Mark. You are Mark Cohen. You are an observer and prefer to stay out of dramatic situations, although you feel alone sometimes. You are practical and supportive. You love to be with your friends, and if you are filming it, it's even better for you. You want to save every moment of life, because you never know when everything will disappear. Your values are important to you, and you wouldn't go against them, even to make a living. You don't care where you are, as long as you are having a good time with your friends. (Thought so from reading the capsule descriptions at the beginning of the quiz!)

Poo nugget for Monday, July 27: Catch 'Em With Their Pants Down - While bowel obstruction from swallowing drug-filled condoms can occur, the most feared complication of "body packing" is balloon rupture. Balloon rupture results in a rapid release of lethal doses of cocaine or heroin into the GI tract. This catastrophic complication has been known to result in shock and, in severe cases, death. Once smugglers are apprehended, these packets can easily be detected with an abdominal X-ray. Treatment is with laxatives (and close bathroom supervision) to expedite the natural passage of these illicit goods.

Let's see if cigarette smoke repels mosquitoes!

Nate and Jen picked me up at about 5:45. which was reasonably on time. Discussed library books, reading, FAST FOOD NATION, and other things on the way to Eric's. Since Nathan had parking issues at Eric's, I decided to joke that he had performance anxiety. Hey, it's Nathan... I can do that! Of course he took it well, haha - Jon let us in, and we almost immediately went to the backyard since it was crowded in the kitchen. True to my game plan, I pretended that two people did not exist. (as I thought, they were doing the very same thing) Harmony and I were getting bitten alive by mosquitoes, so we finally decided to avail ourselves of Eric's OFF lotion - he also had Deep Woods Spray, which I remember from going to Camp Sasamat as a kid.

Alistair was kindly grilling the salmon steaks / cooking burgers for us, and we all thanked him before he left for a previous engagement. Discussed the Chief, the Grind, and other similar hikes... also talked about the fireworks last night, courtesy of Christon. "They said to stay away from trees and tall skinny objects - well, we were under a tree, and my friend was tall and skinny! Nice way to try avoiding lightning! I also left as soon as the fireworks ended, and didn't have to wait for a bus back at all!" Jon wants to hang around a restaurant on Wednesday till the crowd thins out - we'll see! We also educated Nathan on what "TMI" meant, which grew out of a story about Roberto Luongo taking a long time in the bathroom before a playoff game a couple years back. There was also a story about Jeremy's kimchi exploding in the back of Nathan's car once, after a Grouse Grind - Jer didn't remember it happening, though!

Jon poured me some Prague beer from a cooler when I was done with a Coke can that Harmony offered me, then asked how long I'd stayed at the townhouse on Wednesday night - not too long, maybe till 8:15 or 8:30. After that, we pretty much filled ourselves up on chips and skewers (when those were ready) while listening to some honeymoon stories and discussing interesting topics. Someone wondered if Eric had any citronella candles since those would definitely repel the mosquitoes from eating us / our food, and Jen suggested that she should light up a cigarette. Jeremy thought that the smoke wouldn't be strong enough to simulate a fire, and that she wanted to smoke cigars instead for that effect. (Nathan made a weird salad dressing - which he lost to an accidental spill thanks to Eric - and a normal one, but made another weird one. The salad had sunflower seeds, too!)

I told Jon to take my onion slices from my skewers, which he gladly did since "they're the best part, man!" Also tried some really hoppy (bitter) Imperial IPA, and some raspberry ale - the ale was a very deceiving 7% alcohol. Later, Jon commented that I was really red: yeah, this comes up every Sunday Dinner! The salmon and burgers were pretty good! Later, Jen DID smoke a cigarette - I noticed that Raymond made her move, so that was a bit rude. (I'm all for asserting yourself, but just because it was him...) However, that meant Jeremy could test whether cigarette smoke was effective in the short term for repelling mosquitoes. Last time we were at Eric's, we all got chased inside because of the bugs in the grass not being visible till too late! Jeremy told us a funny story about Ray, and then Jon joked that he and Jeremy both needed a nicotine fix. "Sure, I'll smoke a fag with you, Jen!" The experiment proved to be successful, which was good for their purposes.

I eventually went inside because of the bugs (and because I couldn't stand being in the same yard as certain people), and flopped on the couch for a bit. Jen came in and scared Heidi (the cat) - whoops! Eric joked that I was passed out - not a bit of it! Eventually, we all came in to do dishes / watch an episode of CORONATION STREET (for Nathan!) which involved illicit sex, courtroom perjury testimony involving an affair, a surprise party, and a "mugging" which involved payment for punching Steve in the nose. Then we all crowded into Eric's room (Nathan and I took the bed - Eric eventually did, too) to view Jon and Harmony's honeymoon photos - lots of stories, some trouble, first-class / second-class, food, falling asleep at paid concerts, coffee, cake, candy, beer, chandeliers, public squares, gardens, museums, artwork, and more! It got pretty warm in there after a while, but it was past the point where the screened window would have helped.

After that, I thought Raymond was motioning me out before he exited, but we all were desperate for some cool air. I'm not going to ask him about that! Since it was 10:30 by the time we were done looking at photos, we didn't go to the Night Market because people had had long days / had to work tomorrow. (Dylan had actually called Christon to ask where we were - he had a family dinner at Deb's to attend) For instance, Christon didn't work on his Powerpoint after the worship practice yesterday because he had to go to the fireworks. So he started it at 6 or 7 AM today instead! Nate said he was working till August to fill up his entertainment fund, but someone turned it into a joke about revenue or expense - we don't want to know! I finished my coffee before leaving, and collected my unfinished Szechaun chips (I didn't mind if Randal had some, as long as he didn't ask me directly) and a 2L bottle of Brisk iced tea that Eric said I should take. Yes, of course I drink the stuff!

He also had clipped my chips shut, so I'll return the red mini clip to him when I finish them! (I got a Safeway bag to carry them home in) We all convinced Eric to keep some extra money since we all paid $6 each, even if his parents wouldn't take any. Nathan drove me home, and was very surprised by the pothole thing leading into the complex parking lot! He's never encountered it before, he says. (discussed London pictures when he gets there, Billie wanting to live there, blog invites, Erin's reception, any birthday party of mine, and more on the way home) Good times!
