I'm With Ug, but white chocolate flakes are pretty good while we take herbs!

Jon and Harmony picked me and Grandma up before 7, and Harmony dropped off some wedding gifts which they couldn't use, while Jon said that he had to borrow my copy of U2's The Joshua Tree - of course I had my keys! Luckily, he had also brought screwdrivers so he could unlock the bathroom door! After some discussion on where to go (Master Hong's? Steveston? Top Shanghai?), we settled on Chen's. I wasn't craving anything, and as long as we had SLB, it was all good. Had fried rice, beef rolls, green beans with meat, SLB, fish soup, and other stuff while discussing a detox / fasting, not being allowed to drink water while doing said detox, stains, Steph's new work schedule (she's watching baseball at the Nat rather than being in Maple Ridge), the incredible amount of cilantro in the fish soup (apparently Myles wouldn't like it), being an ug / fat, "I'm With Stupid" changed to "I'm With Ug" with corresponding directional arrows, and other things.

Jon spotted Lee and Lily outside, so we waved to them and Hannah. Harmony knew who they were as soon as I said Lily was baby Gavin's mom, yay! We joked with Grandma about eating pizza, drinking beer, and doing other things - hahaha! I told Jon that since he wanted to tickle Harmony, he could make it a feature attraction during his housewarming party. "I'll sit on her every hour on the hour, so that will definitely provide you incentive to come see our place!" Weren't sure if Grandma wanted to go to Timothy's, so it was back to the townhouse after a brief stop at my place to pick up the CD. (rats and mice are NOT my friends, haha) I called Eric to see what time he would stop by tomorrow, and told him that Grandma wanted to take him out for lunch. He took exception when I called him "White Kid" in Chinese, haha. I can do 9:05 or so, but it'll be 9 AM just for Grandma. ;)

We ate some Real Dairy vanilla ice cream with white chocolate flakes, which I found in the big freezer in the laundry room. Discussed eating raw dog, regular dog, cat, and other things in China - yup, Grandma knows and has eaten it! Also talked about CDs, herbs, oregano, sage, thyme, mint, spices, stealing the newspaper, ruining Mom's calendar by writing on it a lot, and the pile of CDs that Jon had. It was pretty good to spend time with them, especially since I won't see them tomorrow! Sometime this week should be good if Steph wants to treat the BIG out for a meal with everyone else!

Leslie's just got their Unusual Baby Name from Name Generators. I just got my Unusual Baby Name. It's Malaysia Ng.

Blocking Colin / Boost nutritional shakes vs, Vitasoy

Today, I finally unfriended / blocked Colin. We didn't interact much anyway, and he would always try to "be funny" with words, when I didn't get his humor. Besides, his bad English was getting to me! Yes, I know that not everyone's strong suit is English, but still.

Grandma just offered me a Boost nutritional shake. Uh, no thanks... I'll take the Vitasoy drink box instead! However, I did take the banana she offered me. Now I have the Cranberries' Salvation in my head... whee! She also asked me multiple times whether today was Saturday, and if it meant that tomorrow is Sunday. Yes, definitely. I should go set Dad's alarm for once before I forget, since Grandma has been known to forget things you tell her within hours. (Case in point: I told Jon that she'd forgotten about our plans for today already, and he said that it had been just four hours ago that we made them! I KNOW!)

Jon called to say they'd be here at about 6:15, since 6 is too unrealistic. Sounds fine to me! Told him about the bathroom door needing to be fixed / unlocked as a heads-up, of course, Yay for written notes so *I* don't forget stuff! I'm just remembering what I did last year at this time: MEME_DAY! WOOHOO! Hahahaha.

Edit at 1816: Harmony called to say that they were running a little late. That's fine, although Grandma's been ready ever since 5! (oh my) At least I figured out Dad's alarm... I hope!

Downstairs bathroom being locked, eating right after waking, and stove being on - AIYA!

Grandma blamed ME because the downstairs bathroom door is locked, calling it "her" bathroom, and saying that SHE didn't do it because she wasn't downstairs last night. Um, yeah... I didn't even USE that bathroom when I got home, so it MUST be your fault! (she does this all the time, according to Mom) Maybe Jon can fix it when he and Harmony get here tonight! Also, she's telling me that I need to drink milk or eat food right after I get up. I think I know my own body best, and I know that I prefer eating food a while after I get up (if possible), and the same goes for drinking almost anything except water. *sigh*

She also left the stove on after cooking some noodles for lunch... good thing I caught it, because I was wondering why the pot's contents looked so crusted! Also, she thinks that I needed TWO bowls of noodles since I didn't eat breakfast... I barely finished those, man. Says she'll buy Eric lunch tomorrow since he's taking us to / from church, and that we need to wait for her to finish service. I didn't know how to explain that we have Sunday School after our service anyway, so it's not really a WAIT! Oh well!

Facebook quiz taken from Julie and Michael:

Leslie just took the "What is your Happy Bunny saying?" quiz and the result is I Love Everybody Except You Assholes. Wow. People sure have ticked you off!

Leslie took the Who is meant to be your true love? quiz and the result is The New Kid. They may be new, but they have an attraction to you. Your sweet and kind personality draws them to you every day. Time to make a difference for them. (Meh, I tried that twice - or is that three times? - already. NOT WORKING!)

Cruise ships, Elvis' death anniversary, and Fleetwood Mac theme songs

Hey, my mom emailed us from the cruise ship! "Hi, Kids! We got stucked in the gangway getting to Dublin! So I am using this time to use up my $100.00 credit. *says stuff about the Princess cruise experience, and upset* The ship is too big with more than 3000 passengers, service is just OK. I went to my first workout last night, and I hope it will carry on till the end of the cruise. *asks questions about how we're doing* " She rendered "on board" as "on broad," hahaha.

Poo nugget for this weekend: The King on His Throne - August 16 marks the death of Elvis Presley in 1977. It is often reported that Elvis Presley died on or near the toilet. The ultimate cause of death is not known, but most believe that a combination of gastrointestinal disease and a heart condition led to Elvis' demise. What is known is that our beloved "King" spent his last moments on the throne.

Facebook quiz taken from Chrissy:

Leslie took the How Jersey Are You? quiz and the result is Oooh! We got us a true Jersian ova' heere. You, my friend, are from Jersey. If you got any problems, you let me know. (I would never talk like that! I just guessed!)

Yay for Chinese Eric's birthday! / Tolerance, hobbits, and BLEACH underwear

Wished Eric H. a happy birthday when I saw him on MSN earlier: heatwaves, Jon and Harmony, marriage being a long road between two people, dating in Hong Kong, shopping, dining out, love / understanding / trust / tolerance, and other things. Hopefully, he'll be wiser with this coming year! We both feel the same general way about dating: filling your time with someone is fine as far as it goes, but there's no real MEANING to it! Dating to KNOW the person and then seeing how far we can DEVELOP is a practical way to go about it, for us. Even if he had time to date, he's practically "married" to his job!

So you love hobbits, eh? by nikegurl637
Favorite Hobbit?
Your DateHe gives you a tour of 'your house.'
Sex?Meaningful, and he whispers mushy love stuff in your ear.
And after?He takes your number, wanting to see you again later.

Beef Jerky Underpants... do we really wanna know?!

Sam and Jeremy picked me and Grandma up for grad banquet at about 5:30, then we went to get Karmie. Discussed the imminent axing of the 98 B-Line, the Canada Line, Josiah volunteering for a fruit company which gives the extra fruit from your trees to the Food Bank, the Screamers at Danny's Market (never had them myself), specific employees for pizza crust AND Screamers, Sam going to Manitoba soon, and other things. Got to the church in time to see the catering van in the parkade - excellent! Talked to Phil, Michelle, Auntie Cynthia, Emily, Isabel, Darren, Alan, Tracy, Daniel, Auntie Catherine, baby Mattias, and others. Temporarily lost track of where Grandma was, but I wasn't about to ask a perfidious blackguard where she was! Then I saw her sitting in the seats beside the stairs - good, because Phil was telling us to go inside the fellowship hall!

Steph and I decided to sit her down away from the speakers because we were concerned she'd say it was too loud. Turns out she thought we sat her there because it was closest to the food! I could have had my food first instead of having it last, but switched tables once it was apparent that she could talk to a few people in Chinese. Eric termed it "abandoning her," but she'd be fine! I was very careful where I sat, and decided to sit as far away from certain people as possible: I didn't mind sitting by Lesley, Harmony, Jon (when he got there), or white Jeremy (ditto)! After getting dessert, I stopped to talk to Mattias, who looked as if he wanted some - not now, but maybe when you're older!

The catered food was SO GOOD: orzo pasta which looked like rice (NOT OUZO), strawberries with salad, chicken in sauce, penne with vegetables, coffee, fruit slices, pastries as dessert, bread pudding with whipped cream, and more. Talked to Auntie Elaine, Uncle William, Winnie, Nathan, Eric, Andrew, Christon, Margaret, Elaine, Hannah, Stanley, and others: "spreading your legs," Kelowna, brewing, bloopers, outtakes, Youtube, weddings, Sunday Dinners, Nathan's "manly" Pink Energy drink, lack of sleep, pregnancy, trips, and more.

The roasts were VERY FUNNY (Sarah: "These baby pictures are all of my sister... wait, that's only this one because the others are of my brother!"), and Nathan's was EPIC! Rubber chickens, Steve Irwin impersonations, images of Jon and Harmony on plants in Eric's yard, Christon impersonating my dad, HOLY MO-FO, beef jerky underwear, going crazy in Nathan's basement, etc. SO EXCELLENT! Chris apparently got carried away in editing Sam's roast, so that fifteen-minute epic featured random shots of Lucas, J-Mak, Joey, Julie, Sarah, Ivan, the parkade, Chung, Karen, Mattias, baby Allison, Anita, Jeff, and other people. Grace roasted some people I didn't know, while Melia had to do a speech for someone she'd never met... oh dear. Steph left early since she noticed that Grandma was getting tired - Jon, Harmony, and I made plans for dinner tomorrow so at least Grandma doesn't have to cook! Sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mike at the end, too!

After Pastor John gave a message, we were free to mingle. Mattias loved my blue shiny shirt and (later) Calla's buttons on her jacket. Talked to Phil about Montreal and Dave, waved bye to Danielle and others, and played with Megan. Saw Joshua and Keenan, too! Megan loved the air vents in the fellowship hall - she was very entertained! I ignored a certain person while asking Eric for a ride home, although I'd have LOVED to gloat in his face about his proposals being rejected! For some reason, I was drawn to a conversation in which Nathan was outlining a use for beef jerky underpants: S&M, anyone? Cufflinks, handcuffs, and all that stuff... oh my. Calla told Harmony just to throw them out when she and Jon got home, haha. Talked about a possible Sunday Dinner at Jeremy's to say bye to Nathan and happy birthday to Eric, Jon and Harmony's housewarming on the 29th (an eight-hour affair?!), "Grandma duty" conflicting with the Fellowship small-group outing, school / exams, relationship, psycho-babble, "child / parent / adult," and more.

Stanley decided to kick us out, so we continued our discussions outside. On the way home, Eric thought I said a certain word - NO! He also didn't remember about the townhouse, so we inadvertently spent more time together. Discussed video games, sleep, sharp pains in his head (um...), #4 / Alderbridge, Sunday, reminder phone calls, fees for rides to church, mice in flour (I have bought none after THAT incident!), keys, and more. Good times! Got home and found a good email from my sister - YAY!

Erin's address, the computer not being a microwave, White Spot, and being 100% evil

Helped Dawn with Erin's parents' address just now. Good thing my mom has several Word documents with her friends' addresses on the computer, so I was able to use one of those. Not that I would normally go into personal files (like I was telling Billie recently), but it had to be attempted for HELP reasons! Mom also got her new cellphone from UPS, so there's absolutely no need to check any website! :P

Grandma also called the computer a TV, and then she called it a microwave. Oh dear! Jon called to invite us out to lunch or dinner with him and Harmony tomorrow. We have no preference, but we'll confirm tonight at the grad banquet. Had to tell him about some hilarity and health moments, haha. Threw away the burned rice cooker, too.

Alerted Jasmine to the fact that my parents get back on our scheduled day to get together at White Spot. Luckily, the day after is still free for her - works out for me from a money standpoint, too. I definitely don't mind if she invites Teunis - the Oakridge White Spot it is, haha! (that being the only one in Vancouver which I know how to get to reliably) Will need to look at Translink sometime since the 98 B-Line is getting axed in favor of the Canada Line.

Facebook quizzes taken from Kaili and Ellen:

Leslie took the quiz "Do you know proper English?" and got the result: 7/7 (100%) - Yea! You get an A+! You know how to speak proper English! You paid attention in school and studied hard. You know the importance of a good education and speaking properly to communicate more effectively.

Leslie took the How evil are you? quiz and got the result: 100% Evil. You are completely evil, there's no question about that. People should be afraid of you, very afraid. There isn't anything good inside of you at all. What's wrong with you? (YES! MUHAHAHAHAHA!)

Leslie has taken the quiz What does your day of birth say about you? and she was born on a Friday.

Dream: Chrissy, Cyprus, and cannibal dictators!

I vaguely remember having a dream in which Chrissy was going to Cyprus with her Uncle Georges and some other relatives. They were determined to have a good time, but the guy in charge on the island turned into a dictator. Not only that, but he was also a CANNIBAL! Rumors abounded that he had left someone's face on a plate before going off to conscript an army. Nobody wanted to be in this army, so they all left as soon as they could, and pled asylum at their destinations. For tourists such as Chrissy and her family, they wanted to get back to the States right away, especially since they had little kids with them! Luckily, they were able to do so, and vowed never again to be on Cyprian shores! What the heck?!

Got up today and took a shower. Grandma at least remembered that she didn't have to make dinner tonight, but wondered why I took a shower / wore my blue shiny shirt which Jeremy thought was $100 - was I going out? I told you yesterday! Then she wondered why Steph didn't come home from work and drive us to church, because we wouldn't have to get White Kid or anyone else to do that. Not enough time for that! Told her that she'd see Jon and Harmony tonight, so maybe she'll like that, heh. What I don't necessarily like is the AWFUL music on AM 1320 (it's SO TERRIBLE!), but at least Grandma gets to listen to her portable radio... :|

Just noticed that my mom has Lipton cream of mushroom Cup-A-Soup. I should get some of that later, haha.

Facebook quizzes taken from Kaili and Gretchen:

Leslie took the quiz "Which Sweeney Todd Character Are You?" and got the result: Aldolpho Pirelli! You are Pirelli. You aren't who people think you are. You can be manipulative, always putting on a show... whether for a crowd, or to try and intimidate. Your ultimate downfall will be when someone isn't impressed by your show, and decides to 'intimidate' right back.

Leslie took the The official OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE quiz: Which character are you? quiz and the result is Loretta. You do have emotional issues, but since you’re smarter than everyone else, this will be no obstacle to world domination.

Settling scores / Grandma and her weird bedtime orders / Lavatories

I settled a score earlier tonight, and it was sweet vindication. Grandma came downstairs at 10 to ask why I wasn't sleeping yet, because my sister was in bed already. Well, Steph has to get up at 4 AM to be at work at 5 AM! I luckily have no such limitations on my time, otherwise I wouldn't be able to look after Grandma! Then I tried telling her that we'd go out in the late afternoon tomorrow, and got this response: "How are we going to eat if we go to church? I didn't give them any money for food! Oh, YOU did it for me." (I don't expect a word of thanks from her)

"But who's going to drive us, and at what time? White Kid? [Eric] Oh, Mr. Yung's son. But where does he live? In Richmond? Okay, I didn't know where... you should still sleep, though!" HAHAHAHA! It belatedly occurred to me that she might have thought I meant Phil as in Uncle Peter's son, rather than Sam as in Uncle Joel's son. Oh well, it's okay!

Poo nugget for Friday, August 14: Doo You Know? - Lavatories - "Lavatory" is the formal term for "toilet facilities." The word derives from the Latin lavatorium, which originally referred to "washing basins"... from the Latin lavare, "to wash." Eventually, it came to refer to the room that contained washing basins. Because these rooms often contained a toilet as well, the term eventually morphed into its current definition.

Last time I checked, Halloween was NOT New Year's!

Hmm... Alicia just sent me a Facebook event invitation for a New Year's party. I was so very confused, then thought that she was getting things done four months early. Then when I looked at the invitation, it specified HALLOWEEN as the date for the event. What the heck?! HAHAHAHA! Someone needs to check their calendar, says my sister - SO AGREED!

Grandma used the cooker for brown rice when we know Mom didn't want her to use it! When I found that out, Steph was out running, so I just cringed and hoped the rice turned out okay. Luckily, it did... but we hope she doesn't try using it again! She told us that Mom just didn't want US using it when we didn't know how to... uh, right. *rolleyes* And another thing: we'll eat watermelon at our leisure, and not fifteen minutes after dinner!

After a number of emails between me / Sam / Eric / Ivan / Pastor John (acting on Karmie's behalf), I called Sam to see if he could give me and Grandma a ride tomorrow to grad banquet. He said he could at around 5:30 or a bit before, and remembered where the townhouse is... EXCELLENT! Then I called Eric to let him know, and he has just updated the email exchange to say that it might be easier for Sam to pick up Karmie on the way down the highway, so maybe he'll see that later.

Your Dream Guy is Edward

You are a true romantic, and for you, love is a very emotional and passionate thing.

You want to be wooed, charmed, and even seduced. You have old-fashioned ideas about romance.

You don't mind being with a protective guy like Edward, as long as he has your best interests at heart.

You like being taken care of completely, even if things get a little intense at times.

Cute chopsticks with fish, HAIDRAGON, and WEST WING / BONES characters

Note: LJ Friends in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Memegen, by lunsa.

I happened to find really cute chopsticks with fish on them - nice dark blue background, and they were QUALITY made by HAIDRAGON! Had to rub my grandma's back again with Bengay, but there's nothing much we can do for her pain! Steph popped in, and then went out again to do grocery shopping.

Facebook quizzes taken from Silvester:

Leslie took the Where Should You Be Living? quiz and the result is San Francisco. You have a hippy side to you, and you should be living in San Francisco! You are a very open, accepting person who wants to be around other cultured but laid-back people just like you. You also enjoy a temperate climate where it never gets too hot. Come to San Francisco!

Leslie took the Which West Wing Character are you? quiz and the result is President Bartlet. Troubled, but brilliant. The weight of America's, and the world's, troubles are heaped heavily on your shoulders and you think about it deeply. You, your health, your family, and your faith are all tested by the presidency, but you still truly believe you can help people. You rely heavily on your staff, who are your closest and most trusted friends.

Leslie took the quiz "Which Bones Character Are You?" and got the result: Dr. Camille Saroyan! You are a natural-born leader. Sometimes you are underestimated, but 99.9% of the time, you come through with flying colors. You are a little insecure, and because of this, you don't like to take others' suggestions. You like to prove that you can get things done your way. You are fiercely loyal.

People smoking in dreams / My true color is GOLD?!

I had a dream in which David, Rich, Rosenda, Helen, and a whole bunch of my other church friends were smoking. Yes, they were even doing it around the kids like Ian, Gabriel, Sean, Amanda, and others! We were trying to get away from a pesky goblin named WTF (appropriate!) - he found us in a large room where we were playing with toys. The goblin then ripped my new chili pants, so they were RUINED! My dad didn't make things easier since he yelled at us a lot, and made us feel very depressed. We conquered in the end, and made them PAY! :D

Eric sent me an email, so I think I'll utilize technology in contacting Ivan and Sam for tomorrow. Should be okay... if they check Facebook! AIYA!

You Are Charming and Energetic

You are a cheerful, funny person. You are in love with the whole world.

You are spontaneous and enthusiastic. You're up for anything, especially adventure!

You are outrageous and sometimes even shocking. You can't help it... you're just being yourself.

You are curious about everything and have many interests. If something interests you, you investigate it.

Facebook quiz taken from Gretchen:

Leslie took The real "true colors" quiz and got the result: Gold.


Time for Family



Lack of control

At work, you provide stability and can maintain organization. Your ability to handle details and to work hard make you the backbone of many organizations. You believe that work comes before play, even if you must work overtime to complete the job.

In love, you are serious and tend to have traditional, conservative views of both love and marriage. You want a mate who can work along with you, building a secure, predictable life together. You demonstrate love and affection through the practical things you do for your loved ones.

In childhood, you wanted to follow the rules and regulations of the school. You understood and respected authority, and were comfortable with academic routine. You were the easiest of all types of children to adapt to the educational system.

Cholera diarrhea has the consistency of rice water!

Steph and I had a bunch of cherries earlier - good stuff! Reminds me that I forgot to offer frozen ones to Billie when she was over just a couple days ago, but they're still good for another few months in my freezer!

Facebook quizzes taken from Heather and Natalie:

Leslie took the quiz "How annoying are you" and got the result: Pleasant / Easygoing! You are thoughtful and considerate, and other people think you are a pleasure to have around. You actually realize it is not all about you.

Leslie took the quiz "Which Captain Planet Planeteer Are You?" and got the result: Kwame, the Planeteer of Earth! Kwame comes from Ghana, Africa, and was chosen to be a Planeteer for his sustainability efforts on the savannah. Kwame is the leader of the Planeteers, and always initiated the Captain Planet calling by saying, "Let our powers combine." This translates to your personality, giving you strong convictions and a constant perspective on the "big picture" - making you the perfect leader in groups. People tend to listen to you. However, you tend to have limited grace under extreme pressure, and can be impatient with others. Your earth ring allows you to create earthquakes, landforms, and craters.

Poo nugget for Thursday, August 13: Number Three - Why Is It Coming Out In Liquid Form? - Diarrhea has two main causes: GI tract infection and maldigestion. Inadvertent consumption of bacteria / viruses / toxins from undercooked meat or week-old potato salad causes the small bowel to secrete large volumes of fluid into the GI tract. This deluge of fluid, coupled with brisk intestinal transit (picture the torrent of Class 5 rapids) results in the delivery of large amounts of liquid to the rectum. Cholera infection is the most severe example of this. The diarrhea produced by cholera is classically referred to as having the consistency of "rice water," and leads rapidly to life-threatening dehydration. (POO OF THE MONTH!)

Yay for distraction via screensaver pictures!

Noticed that Michelle L. unfriended me on Facebook, while Emily T. has friended me again. Edmond hasn't actually friended me, but yet his name still appears on the drop-down menu when I begin to type something in - WEIRD! Why do I have 339 connections, yet "only" 324 friends?! Hmm... *shifty eyes*

Grandma complained of more back pain, but there's nothing we can do! I did kinda rub her back at her request, and she called me "good." Then I distracted her: SCREENSAVER TIME! Lots of pictures: Melissa, Holly's wedding (I assume), Adams River, salmon, Jon's wedding, Nathan, Lesley, Christon, Regent, Regina, Toronto, Europe, Terrence, Jon, Harmony, Jeremy, Uncle Joe, Auntie Wing, Uncle Albert, Norman, Auntie Betty, Uncle Allan, Auntie Susan, Steph, me, Karen Grace, Steph's friends, various graduations, cruises, and more. Yay!

Burning rice, quiet frost, and introverted trailer trash

I apologized to Steph for messing up the rice - assumptions lead to burning. Vegetables, meat, and watermelon are all very well and good, though! At least we can try the new microwaveable rice things we bought today at City Fresh... no worries!

Facebook quizzes taken from Kaitlin, Steve L., Karla, and Melissa:

Leslie just took the "How do guys look at you?" quiz and the result is The Quiet Girl. You are the type of girl that is quiet, but you keep the guys interested and guessing. You never throw yourself out there, and guys like that. You don't like being chased, but it so happens that guys always chase you. Just because you're quiet doesn't mean that you're a good girl, but guys don't have to know that, right?

Leslie completed the quiz "What Viking God / Goddess are you?" with the result Skaadi. You are the Norse goddess of winter, the hunt, and frost giants. You are cold and unfeeling. (Am not!)

Leslie completed the quiz "What is your trailer trash name?" with the result Trixie. You are trailer trash in training. You are well on your way to becoming true trailer trash. Your momma may be the trailer park queen. Just follow in her footsteps, and before long, you may outrank her. Remember the following trailer trash rules: always wear clothes that are two sizes too small; chainsmoke; strut, don't walk; always have your nails done. Going out with curlers in your hair is acceptable, and learning to make casseroles out of Hamburger Helper is a must.

Leslie took the quiz "What's Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type?" and got the result: ISFJ (Introversion, Sensing, Feeling, Judgment)! You are quiet, friendly, responsible, and conscientious. You are committed and steady in meeting your obligations. You are thorough, painstaking, and accurate. You are loyal, considerate, notice and remember specifics about people who are important to you, and concerned with how others feel. You strive to create an orderly and harmonious environment at work and at home. Famous people with your same ISFJ personality include: Former US First Lady Barbara Bush, figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi, Mother Theresa, General Robert E. Lee, and actor Michael Caine.

You Need Acceptance

You aren't truly happy in life unless you are able to accept yourself, flaws and all.

You also need to be accepted by other people. You like feeling you belong and that you're not being judged.

You are a welcoming and open-minded person. It's not hard for you to accept others for who they are.

You believe that everyone is happiest when we live without judgement or prejudice. And you're doing your part to make that happen.

WANG DERM, showing informercials during lunch, and moving to avoid sun

I was annoyed by my dad's pre-set alarm at 7:25 AM, so I turned it off. After I got up a few hours later, Grandma started complaining of back pain. Mom did warn me and Steph that this might happen since Big G likes seeing the doctor for some reason. I determined that Mom's Internet Explorer was being annoying because the browser window disappeared after barely a second. Decided to go out with Grandma and Steph anyway because I wanted to be a good granddaughter. Grandma was so impatient to get going that we arrived at Auntie Ruby's office in plenty of time for the appointment, never mind that she thought it would take half an hour to drive there! (it didn't, trust me!)

After she saw the doctor (and Auntie Stella affirmed me and Steph in being good granddaughters), we were off to do something about Grandma's bloodwork. While we were at the labs, my sister saw a planter with a hilarious sign taped to it: "DO NOT THROW GARBAGE HERE!" She had to take a picture of it, of course. Later, we were off to lunch. Grandma thought that we wanted to go to Neptune (again?!), but we never said anything about it - she should know by now that we don't care where we go to eat! Since we thought that she wanted to go there, we humored her... let's try keeping her happy instead of cranky!

Spotted a Chinese store called FOOT SPOT on the way there: Chinese people are very strange, which was just confirmed even more by what the restaurant chose to show on their TV. Endless infomercials for a hair-removal product (while you're trying to eat), anyone?! As we were eating our duck, fish balls, noodles, gai lan, and beef brisket, they decided to show something normal. It looked like a talk show, and then switched to some show which was purportedly set inside a hotel, but it looked more like a hospital to me, what with people in white uniforms going into a room where some old guy was lying on a bed!

Talked about Erin, Chris, Darren, Derek, Alan / Polly / Tsui Woo, Andrea / Chuck, Mom getting tipsy at Megan's wedding and asking Daniel whether he was expecting, emergency bridesmaid duty at Angela's wedding, and worship practice tonight for Erin's wedding. Also discussed Ultimate, Grandma switching seats in the car to avoid the sun (it's not a tanning bed!), Melissa being like me in that she hates Netspeak, White Spot spelling "occasion" wrong on an advertisement, and other things. Then we went to buy stuff at City Fresh Market - Steph and I got a laugh out of the "advertising of specials" outside the market, which advertised WANG DERM! (and had to take a picture of that, as well) We bought $16 worth of chicken to keep Grandma appeased, as well as Pocky and other things. Grandma somehow got the idea that we like ground beef, so she had to buy it - aiya!

Then we went to fill Grandma's prescription at Safeway. Steph found a deal on sports drinks, while Grandma thought we wanted her to buy us some chips or body wash. Nope, since we just ate lunch and were just browsing! Bought salad and other things, as well. At home, Steph ended the Internet Explorer process in the Task Manager, which stopped the browser problem. She found several funny pictures while I read the news. Tried to Google "wang derm" for Chantal (on the phone), but couldn't find anything. Probably a good thing, since Steph wasn't sure if she wanted to Google it in the first place!

Poo nugget for Wednesday, August 12: Diarrhea Song - Dating back to the 1960s, this childhood folk song was popularized in the 1989 movie Parenthood. While the lyrics can vary, it usually goes a little something like this: "When you're sliding into first / And your pants begin to burst / That's diarrhea, diarrhea."

My grandma doesn't like Hawaiian shirts or belly tattoos on the news!

While we were eating dinner, my grandma turned on the TV. I don't know why, since she can't understand English. She recognized Barack Obama, told me that Tony Parsons and my dad look alike (not really - it's just the glasses), said that the TV weatherman shouldn't wear Hawaiian T-shirts because "he's too old... see his white hair?!", and opined that belly tattoos should NEVER be shown on TV news because they're too disgusting. Hahahaha! Later, she actually made a good try at pronouncing "Harmony" and "Michael Jackson" in English - YAY! "He took too many drugs, and he had children! The news is all about him!" Then she said that Octo-Mom had her babies to get more money... and then said that she ate more than I did at dinner. Sure, whatever you say!

Facebook quizzes taken from Veronica and Kelly:

Leslie completed the quiz "What Character from a John Hughes Movie are you?" with the result Andie Walsh / Claire Standish / Samantha Baker (Pretty In Pink / The Breakfast Club / Sixteen Candles). You are Molly Ringwald from *Insert John Hughes film* ... here:_________________ (eye roll). Misunderstood and full of angst, you are intelligent, talented, and will probably go on to do great things... once you're out of the hell of high school (eye roll). The clothes you design are butt-ugly, but fashionable for the 80s. There's more to you than your reputation. Your family really doesn't understand you. Don't worry, you'll improve (eye roll). You're also a really cute redhead who everyone is obsessed with. Seriously (eye roll), all you want is to graduate this hell of a high school, design the perfect ugly pink dress for the prom, eat some sushi, and screw the baddest boy in school, go to prom, and have someone remember your goddamn birthday. And why the hell is there a really wretched Asian stereotype living in your house named after a duck's dick (eye roll)?

Leslie took the How naughty are you? quiz and the result is 60% Naughty. You know when to control yourself, and you know right from wrong. BUT you have a different side, and when this side comes out, you won't be afraid to try anything!!

"We are good friends! Every Day Happy!"

Shortly after the last post, I figured I should get going. Told Billie not to forget her umbrella, and we left soon after I grabbed the right keys and my water bottle. She said she'd get a snack after we hugged goodbye, so then she could have change to take the bus with. Waited for the bus, then took my medication as soon as I was seated. When I got to the townhouse, I greeted Grandma, who wanted to know why I'd brought a water bottle; never mind! Mom had left a cheesy pink journal with yellow happy faces and Engrish on it: "Hello! We are good friends! Every Day Happy! Have a good time!" She also left me some Lance Freshness peanut butter crackers - yum!

Steph alerted me to the presence of a note on the table: yeah, we figure a new cellphone will get here when it gets here. No need to panic or check the UPS website! Harmony had evidently done some cleaning in Jon's room here, which is good. Grandma wanted to know whether Steph was eating here - not before her Ultimate game! We read the newspaper and ate a couple of carrot muffins before she left - we can do takeout tomorrow! She wants me to call Eric tonight about grad banquet since she doesn't want to worry about it on Friday - sure, sure. Then again, we both know that Mom wants us to call Auntie Kwai (since she keeps in touch with Auntie Leslie and Uncle Michael) in case anything happens to Grandma. We don't think anything will, although the room did smell like Bengay for some time! (for Big G's back pain)

Flamethrowers, nukes, and grenades are NOT a minister's territory!

sam roberts, don't walk away eileen, here, figuring things out, grenadine, bombs, trust, slow, yesterday, enrico, ultimate, chop chop, mishearings, maria, biscuits, ministers, foreign, forgetting, affairs, believing, busing, minutes, insistence, short posts, running errands, grocery shopping, flamethrower, drivers, stupid, traffic, buses, nuts, townhouse, rides, sleeping over, writing, dropping people off at airport, steph, phone calls, parents, billie, visitors, eric m., hearing, games, morbid, jokes, grandma, breakfast, lunch, jon, harmony, reading,

Earlier, Steph called again to see if I needed a ride to the townhouse. Billie was still here (reading and writing), so no. Of course, she should probably think about leaving soon just in case - the buses are NUTS, man! Steph said "dropping the parents off at the airport," which I misheard as "I chopped them at the airport," hahaha. She said that she isn't morbid like ME, so I said that she should ask Eric about what I told him yesterday about flamethrowers, nukes, and grenades for stupid drivers and slow traffic! I'm sure he wouldn't trust me to be his Minister of Foreign Affairs, hahaha... even if he didn't believe me when I said I was joking!

I assumed that Jon and Harmony had gone home after lunch: yup, they had to run errands and go grocery shopping! We'll figure things out later! She let me know that she has a couple of Ultimate games at 5 or so, and I said that she should tell Grandma at some point before then. Of course, I remember the time when Steph told her about needing to leave 45 minutes before the actual bus got near the townhouse, and Grandma STILL insisted that nobody said anything when I reminded her about it (and told her to stop eating Maria biscuits for breakfast) with fifteen minutes left to go! *sigh*

No Neptune, but a pancake slab will do to eat!

Steph called to invite me to lunch at Neptune with her, Jon, Harmony, Grandma, and the parents. Can't do it since Billie is still here - our breakfast consists of pancakes made from Dallas' Aunt Jemima mix. Actually, it was one big pancake slab, but it works! (also decided to have pudding, digestive biscuits, and raspberry lemonade) Showed her the wedding photos, and talked about commercials / the Cult / weird survey questions / aggressive finches and pigeons.

Facebook quizzes taken from Veronica and Gretchen:

Leslie just took the "What military rank are you?" quiz and the result is Major. You serve as primary Staff Officer for brigade and task force command regarding personnel, logistical, and operational missions. The men beneath you love you and will do anything for you. Your soldiers obey you not because they have to, but because they want to.

Leslie just took the "What do others see in your eyes?" quiz and the result is Timid eyes. Your eyes constantly say something about you, and often express the emotion of timidity. Often the eyes of shy people, they can express strong emotion and evoke pity or other feelings from other people, and are often subtly beautiful.

Bacon ice cream, Rainbow Brite, and black poo

Ten Bizarre Ice Cream Flavors: green tea, garlic, cheese, Viagra, licorice, bacon, sauerkraut, avocado, chili, wasabi!

Leslie's just got their Rainbow Brite Name from Name Generators. I just got my Rainbow Brite Name. It's Romeo.

Poo nugget for Tuesday, August 11: Black Poo - Stool sometimes diverges from its usual brown color, and emerges as a dark black shade. This can be caused by foods that are high in iron (or iron pills), bismuth compounds (like Pepto-Bismol), or blood from higher up in the digestive tract.

Your proposals got REJECTED! Victory over stupid people!

I thought I'd miss the bus AND the connecting bus to get to the meeting place, but luck was with me as the 410 actually STAYED at the stop instead of rushing off. Also saw some moron walking right in the middle of a lane (with oncoming traffic) on #3 Rd. - DO YOU HAVE A DEATH WISH, LADY?! Eric got to the intersection just as I was stepping off the bus, so we had a suitably random and crazy ride to Superstore. He wondered why I was wearing capris in the rain, so I told him that it was all about the color CHILI, and that it was part of my new style. Of course he went into "crazy accent mode" - hahaha! Ah, I love the random car rides - discussed it being my fault that there was bad traffic, drugs, medicine, nosepads, periods, and more. We got to Superstore, where I tried convincing him that we could eat at the Subway tables. Turns out we should have done that because we had to wait for a while in front of the church with Eric T., Vivian, Dylan, Kevin, and Johnny! Eric T. said that Auntie Rebecca had the keys, since there was a CSC worship team practice scheduled for tonight.

Dylan tried to hold part of the meeting outside, but that didn't work - Eric and I just ate our sandwiches, while he said that he should have listened to me in the first place! So then we figured we'd go to either Starbucks or Tim Horton's - and as soon as we piled into Dylan's car, Auntie Rebecca arrived! Too late, so we went to the 24-hour Tim Horton's near the Cactus Club / Boston Pizza that we used to go to all the time after Fellowship. I found it quite hilarious, and something to tell Jon whenever I see him next! We saw a few police officers there, plus a crying kid.

After Dylan bought something to eat and drink to justify our presence there, we discussed Cindy / Wesley / Sam / Joey / Phil / programs / other things. While looking through the minutes from the last meeting, I was VERY PLEASED to discover that a certain perfidious blackguard's fundraising proposals (tutoring and a car wash) got REJECTED! (I described this to Eric later as "a victory over the stupid people") Later, Eric got peppermint herbal tea (no caffeine!) - yes, he can get his tea fix! The guys discussed baseball, interviews, Calla, and Deb's uncle getting kidnapped in the Philippines. (Dylan's new family was apparently very casual about it, yikes!)

On the way home, I told Eric that I was very pleased with the good committee meeting. After discussing that for a while, we got gas before going home. Discussed Riverview, England / Ireland / Scotland (my parents aren't scouting it for Nathan!), Pho, Mui's / Louis Garden, jeans, Happy May Child Care, being random, caring, Fidelis Tea House, Western Lake Seafood Restaurant, Dairy Queen, #4 / Alderbridge, Nancy Wonton House, Green Village / Tsui Woo, Alan and Polly, childless couples, Big G not taking the bus, some guy rummaging around in the apartment dumpster, my comfort level upon seeing that, and more.

At home, Billie and I discussed drama (tagging) / boys / stupidity. Then Corey said that my box of digestive cookies had gotten there already, so I must have whipped the post office into shape after last time with the stuff that got there, but didn't really. That's pretty quick, since I just mailed them out very recently! Got a good-sounding email from Krista, and now Billie and I are just chilling (after she signed my guestbook) and having Celestial Seasonings tea. Yay! (called Mom, who said she's having lunch with Jon and Harmony tomorrow - we'll see about that!)

Keychains, just forgetting things, stupid people, LOLcats, and killing your boss

This thing just restarted, and I have to go out soon! (explained later) UGH!

I thought I'd miss the bus since I saw it pull out of the stop right when I was rushing to get it, but the driver saw me and was nice enough to stop to let me in! Figured that I should change the computer clock (which I've just done) when I got home - met Billie in front of Richmond Sushi, so YAY for killing memory dragons! We didn't have to wait for a table (unlike the last time I was there), and we had a good time talking about stupid people / final exams / dumb doctors / girls / boys / Shaina, who wants Billie to just forget a slur made on NYE (and she never apologized) / stupid people who don't know what "obsession" is / people who think you can just cancel plans you made MONTHS ago in favor of family time / Persian culture / sex / other things. Had good miso soup, fish soup, various rolls (California / Alaska / spicy chicken / spicy tuna / etc.), mango pudding, and more.

From there, it was off to the mall. I had to get new nosepads for my glasses from Iris, and a butterfly keychain for my keys from the dollar store. Billie got a bunch of stuff from the anime store, and we kinda browsed Coles and HMV for a while. Got a laugh out of certain books: the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, I Can Has Cheezburger?: A LOLcat Colleckshun (Professor Happycat and I Can Has Cheezburger), F My Life (Maxime Valette / Guillaume Passaglia / Didier Guedj / Missbean), Grandma's Dead: Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals (Amanda McCall and Ben Schwartz), Stuff White People Like: A Definitive Guide to the Unique Taste of Millions (Christian Lander), 101 Ways to Kill Your Boss (Graham Roumieu), and more.

Went home since it was actually raining quite hard (talked to Billie's mom Tara for a minute), and tried calling Eric to make plans for tonight to no avail. Discussed Bathroom Readers, water bottles from the fridge, perverted people, pasta, rice, digestive biscuits, incessant messages, meeting more of my family, weird phone calls (1-303-280-8689 from Colorado?!), condoms in pockets, the Virgin Islands scam, stories, college, the LOLcat Bible, and more. I discovered that my mom had tried to call me, but I was out... so she sent me an email instead. Mom had spelled "Flime" as "flame," and said that Big G had back pain, so she was going to Auntie Ruby's for a doctor's appointment. Maybe she doesn't want my parents to go on holiday, but you can't just cancel a cruise with one day's notice!

Anyway, she wanted me to come keep her company, but I have other plans... I can't really skip Committee Meeting and leave Billie stranded here! So I called Jon to tell him that - I wasn't really expecting Harmony to answer the phone, oops. Luckily, I was able to tell her what was happening, so I'll see them all tomorrow at some point! Now Billie's here, and we're just reading and such. Eric's just called, and wanted to know if I wanted a ride to the meeting - well, unless you want me to skip it, a ride would be very much appreciated! This means I have to go out again soon - yes, I did warn Billie of the meeting, and she didn't seem to mind! I'll meet him at the usual intersection at 6, since we need time to stop and grab dinner before the meeting starts at 7 - whee for Subway or something like it! ;)

Misreadings of the Day

1. I misread "Shojo BOAT" as "Shojo BORAT" - HAHAHA!
2. Billie misread "Jillian" as "Jihad." Oops. I told her about the "cabbage rolls" as "garbage rolls" mixup, and how my brother wasn't impressed - she got some laughs out of it, anyway!

And this machine restarted AGAIN, just when I have to think about going out and meeting Billie. She just called to say she's there already, so I said I'd be there in 45 minutes, unless Translink is on crack! Jeremy discovered that a few years ago, when the site told him to take five buses (one through New Westminster) to the townhouse from Main / Broadway!

Leg brace fetish and Emily Bronte

This thing just restarted, right when I was going to start an update. Oh well. I got up earlier today than I thought I would, but that's okay. Billie called a few minutes after I awoke to advise me that she finished her final, so would be heading over to Richmond Sushi. At least she brought stuff to do in case I wasn't there yet! It's rainy today, and about twelve degrees out - SO MUCH CHANGE FROM THE HEATWAVE, AIYA!

Facebook quizzes taken from Julie:

Leslie completed the quiz "What unusual fetish are you?" with the result Abasiophilia. Your love of people in leg braces makes you yearn for the days when polio was still widespread. It's kinda like they're a robot, in a tiny, tiny way. (What the heck?!)

Leslie completed the quiz "Which Famous or Infamous Woman In History Are You?" with the result Emily Bronte. You are the writer Emily Bronte. You seem to keep to yourself most of the time, and only have a few close friends. Though you are beautiful, you don't find yourself attractive. Other people in your life (whether they are your friends or your family) always come before you, and you work hard to please others. You are very educated and intelligent, and school was always extremely important to you. You care mostly for writing, reading, and other arts; people tend to think of you as a loner, and don't take the time to get to know you very well. You have a dark, lonely side to you; though you put on a happy face, you are often very sad.

You Are the University of Colorado at Boulder

You're the type of person who likes to study hard and party hard.

You're smart and a free thinker. You enjoy many types of activities.

You are likely to succeed in school. You can study hard when you need to.

However, you also know that school isn't everything. You're all about achieving life balance.

Drinking pee, Translink, dogs, and Jerry Seinfeld

Pranknet again.. they get a lady to drink pee :P

[00:23:52] Corey: well, it's a two-parter... the hotel guest is told their room is full of hepatitis C, and they need to give a urine sample to the front desk.. and to not cause any weird looks from guests in the lobby, he's supposed to say it's apple cider
[00:24:17] Corey: the front desk is then informed that someone from the apple cider company is coming down for a free sample of apple cider just for her!!
[00:27:57] Corey: and there's a news report about it
[00:29:41] Flami: learning about martyrs: EWWWWWW
[00:36:47] Corey: yes, slightly ew :P
[00:48:29] Flami: pee almost never looks like apple cider!
[00:57:35] Corey: close enough

Called Billie earlier, since I got impatient by 9:45 because I didn't see her on Facebook or MSN. We are definitely still on for tomorrow at Richmond Sushi, and I alerted her to the Bridgeport bus apparently only coming once an hour. I'll be there around 11:40 or so, if Translink isn't on crack. Discussed medicine, sleeping over, my meeting, and other things too.

Philosophy, HARRY POTTER wands, sexy cartoon females, weakness

Adam wanted me to vote for him so he can get a free Blackberry Curve - sure, no problem if he wants to be in the top 75! We discussed his being FB friends with his brother again... hey, at least they don't hate each other! No need to escape to different areas of the house, which is admittedly more doable if the place is a huge mansion with separate wings in the dwelling!

Funny repost, courtesy of Mark... HAHAHAHAHA!

Harry Potter and his Wang... err, Wand

Purely in the interests of science, I have replaced the word "wand" with "wang" in the first Harry Potter Book
Let's see the results...

"Why aren't you supposed to do magic?" asked Harry.
"Oh, well -- I was at Hogwarts meself but I -- er -- got expelled, ter tell yeh the truth. In me third year. They snapped me wang in half an' everything

A magic wang... this was what Harry had been really looking forward to.

"Yes, yes. I thought I'd be seeing you soon. Harry Potter." It wasn't a question. "You have your mother's eyes. It seems only yesterday she was in here herself, buying her first wang. Ten and a quarter inches long, swishy, made of willow. Nice wang for charm work."
"Your father, on the other hand, favored a mahogany wang. Eleven inches. "

Harry took the wang. He felt a sudden warmth in his fingers. He raised the wang above his head, brought it swishing down through the dusty air and a stream of red and gold sparks shot from the end like a firework, throwing dancing spots of light on to the walls

"Oh, move over," Hermione snarled. She grabbed Harry's wang, tapped the lock, and whispered, 'Alohomora!"

The troll couldn't feel Harry hanging there, but even a troll will notice if you stick a long bit of wood up its nose, and Harry's wang had still been in his hand when he'd jumped - it had gone straight up one of the troll's nostrils.

He bent down and pulled his wang out of the troll's nose. It was covered in what looked like lumpy gray glue.

He ran onto the field as you fell, waved his wang, and you sort of slowed down before you hit the ground. Then he whirled his wang at the dementors. Shot silver stuff at them.

I have found, definitive proof
that J.K Rowling is a dirty DIRTY woman, making a fool of us all
"Yes," Harry said, gripping his wang very tightly, and moving into the middle of the deserted classroom. He tried to keep his mind on flying, but something else kept intruding.... Any second now, he might hear his mother again... but he shouldn't think that, or he would hear her again, and he didn't want to... or did he?
Something silver-white, something enormous, erupted from the end of his wang

Then, with a sigh, he raised his wang and prodded the silvery substance with its tip.

'Get - off - me!' Harry gasped. For a few seconds, they struggled, Harry pulling at his uncle's sausage-like fingers with his left hand, his right maintaining a firm grip on his raised wang.


Facebook quizzes taken from Kaitlin, Jennifer J., Chrissy, Julie S., and Jane:

Leslie completed the quiz "What is your philosophy?" with the result Existentialism. "Be that self which one truly is." - Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) Existentialism is the broad philosophical movement postulating that individual human beings create the meaning and essence of their lives as persons. Walter Kaufmann described Existentialism as "The refusal to belong to any school of thought, the repudiation of the adequacy of any body of beliefs whatever, and especially of systems, and a marked dissatisfaction with traditional philosophy as superficial, academic, and remote from life." Human beings are to make their own choices in life and find their own meaning, with or without God. Existential philosophers range from the religious (Kierkegaard) to the anti-religious (Nietzsche).

Leslie completed the quiz "What is Your Harry Potter Wand?" with the result Fir and Unicorn Hair. You have a good and pure heart and love to take care of others and make them happy. You have the gift of healing and will make a natural parent. You may not have a great number of friends, but the ones you have are true and loyal. You have an open mind and a huge heart. You'll most likely be a member of Gryffindor or Ravenclaw. Your will excel in Charms, Potions, and Herbology class. After leaving Hogwarts, you may seek a career as a Healer at St. Mungo's, a writer for the Quibbler, or you might choose to stay at home with your children.

Leslie completed the quiz "What sexy cartoon female are you?" with the result Jessica Rabbit. You are the sultry, sexy songstress Jessica Rabbit. Your flaming red hair and curvaceous body has all eyes on you! You are slightly misunderstood, but you're not a bad girl... you're just drawn that way. You are more than just a beautiful face and an entertainer! You're in love with humor, and any man that can make you laugh will win your love.

Leslie completed the quiz "What's your biggest weakness?" with the result Fear. You are a loyal and faithful person, but your fear keeps you from doing things you really want or need to do. Sometimes you wish you could be a different person... maybe it would be easier! But instead, you need to embrace who you are, and trust that everything around you won't crumble. You think about death often and sometimes it makes you live harder, but other times, it makes you depressed. You've thought about suicide, but you fear that too. You pretend to be happy when you really aren't, and you try to be something for everyone in order to feel loved. But underneath it all, you just want to be loved for who you are. You sometimes fear yourself and who you are, and you don't want to waste a second of your life, but you don't know where to go or where to turn. You have a big heart and you don't want to waste it, but you sometimes wonder what love really is.

Leslie took the Which Ghost Is In Your Basement Or Bedroom? quiz and got the result: Troxert. A groom who is so broken-hearted! He committed suicide because of his loved one, Zeane, his bride (supposedly) who died by car crash. This broken-hearted Troxert is waiting. Until now... he dares to visit houses. But he chose yours. Troxert is waiting for you in the dining area.

Leslie took the What are you ADDICTED to? quiz and got the result: food.

SIMPLETON is a reasonable insult these days!

Parents picked me up this morning, even if I was a little late going out to meet them because I had to wish Richie a happy birthday via FB wall post. Also, I had thought of some other stuff I should pack for my stay at the townhouse, so did it right then instead of waiting - I might forget, otherwise. My mom finally gave me the keys to the place, which is good if I go out and leave Grandma home (not too likely to happen) - at least it won't be like May 2008, because that was BAD! ("Go out now! You can bus home after I call a cab just for you! No, I won't cab you home!" *rolleyes*) Watched Grandma tie two fringes to one another on a blanket, over and over. Just because I said it was pretty doesn't mean I want one of my own, hahaha. Mom's was nice, all blue and cute with teddy bears!

She says that Auntie Vonnie and Uncle Stanley now have a granddaughter named Abigail; apparently, she found this out through Facebook. I don't think she HAS Facebook, although she was asking me how people know she doesn't have it, and how easy it would be to accept an invite / use it in general. I'd tell her that it's too hard for her, but people like Ivan's dad Uncle Arthur (who just confirmed me as a friend on there) use it. HMM!

Got to service, and wished Richie a happy birthday in person while we let Emily in a pew first so she could sit by Sam. He remembered that I was the birthday person - you bet! Unfortunately, the two perfidious blackguards (who are definitely too close to one another) were in front of me - BAD SEATING! Remembered that Jon was at his in-laws' church, teaching Sunday School. (told that to Jen later) Had to listen to a bunch of feedback that made us CRINGE, but I was amused with Nathan's Powerpoint, which said "we lift up our my hands" in one particular song! I just hope he ate something before coming to church, haha! Pastor Edward brought up eating a black thing to get his voice back after speaking a LOT during the day for four services, which was later revealed to be DRIED COCKROACHES - EWWWW! "Don't believe everything you hear!" Thanks to the sermon, I also rediscovered "simpleton" as a reasonable insult - it's not used widely these days, heh.

I saw Connie taking care of her niece Megan and nephew Connor, so that distracted me for a bit. Also noticed Edwin, his girlfriend Jane, and his mom in church - I had to at least officially notice Auntie Susan and hug her, so I did that almost as soon as service was over. She wanted me to help get Pastor Edward's attention before he / they left, so I did that in what must be the fastest personal exit from the sanctuary EVER for me! After that, I greeted Tony and listened to Andrew say that camp was boring / covered the same topics repeatedly, so he didn't go with the rest of the Timothy people this weekend. I talked to Andrew in the fellowship hall about his quick McDonalds job interview. His friend is a manager there, so put his resumé at the top of the heap - hey, he can come in tomorrow! I mused that Noah had somehow grown a bit taller in the three weeks or so that I haven't seen him! Noticed Lesley hug Cindy and Julie, but I don't know why... it's not like they never see each other! *sigh*

While I was getting some red grapes, Jeremy asked me how the rodent problem was: they actually seem to have gone away, but one never knows! Asked Pastor John about the UK - he was there for about two weeks! Said hi to Karen and Lincoln; talked to Jen about a Christian producer guy she'd met - Jon does know about it, and I'm happy for her and Jason, even if it's still new. Said hi to Mark, and brought up his HARRY POTTER WAND note, which I need to repost - Citrus said that they had to arrest someone who was masturbating in his own backyard, and give him a court date! That's gotta be embarrassing, and "my own personal property" doesn't cover it because apparently it's still indecent exposure! (and I used "cover it" intentionally!)

Exited the fellowship hall, and said hi to a sleepy baby Mattias - he just stared at me, even as I jangled my keys in front of his face. Then I said hi to baby Allison, who was transfixed watching Mike do a weird dance routine. She was licking all the salt off a goldfish cracker, haha. Maybe she's too used to the baby crackers, which just melt! Later, she gave us a real smile instead of a funny face... she's so cute! When I refilled my water bottle from the cooler while talking to Sheena, I said hi to Joshua and Keenan, who apparently didn't want any water! Joshua tried to block my access to my green lid, which I'd put on the bench so I wouldn't have to hold it... nice try, but I'm bigger than you and can REACH OVER YOUR HEAD! Said hi to Sanne before going upstairs - they go back to the Netherlands (Holland) on Wednesday!

Discovered Amanda, Margaret, her cousin Alan, Arthur, David (with a shaved head - I almost didn't recognize him!), and Evelyn in Toddler Sunday School. Margaret was busily making a BIG tower out of Duplo; it bent and broke several times! I noticed that Arthur had Thomas the Train socks, hahahaha! (he liked those, and talked to me about TV and alphabet letters) Told Auntie Fonda that I had a Ripley's book for her to borrow, and she said she'd give it back next week - meh, that's okay! Rachel's grandma gave me a fig - so refreshing! Alan refused to speak much English, even though Auntie Fonda thought I could help him because he's a new immigrant. Well, they'll expect you to understand / speak it in school, kid!

Forgot to give Arthur's toy car back to him after class, so it's now in a Ziploc bag with a note to myself as to what / whose it is. Actually, one of my nose pads for my glasses is also in a (different) Ziploc bag with a note as to what it is, since I noticed it fly off while I was playing Duplo with the kids! Hopefully, I can get it fixed tomorrow at the glasses place in the mall - Iris, or the newer place which I forget the name of. Went downstairs, and asked Grandma if she wanted some water, which she misunderstood as "Did you go to the bathroom yet?" Hahaha! Told Ivan that I'd seen his dad on Facebook, so Ivan had better be really careful what he puts on there - his dad added him first, yikes!

I also had to remind her of Jon's whereabouts when she thought he'd join us for lunch; it's a good thing she seems to recognize Harmony's name when I said it! (as opposed to "his wife") Then she thought that I'd go with her to some seniors' picnic, or that she'd need a ride to church for the next couple of Sundays. Luckily, Auntie Annie (Jason M.'s mom) was there to provide translation help! Of course Grandma knows who White Kid (Eric) is, thank goodness! She'll probably forget, but at least it's in her mind NOW! (also told her about grad banquet as "we're congratulating Jon here at the church on Friday night for dinner!") Talked to Auntie Cissy about getting Sam and Jeremy (Gr. 10?!) ready for school, as well - Sam's lucky to have his dad go with him to get him settled!

Eventually, we went to Tsui Woo for lunch with Alan and Polly. (Mom thought Isabel wouldn't know Winnie... of course she knows Auntie Monica's daughter!) They discussed the cruise, and Edwin's mom. Uncle Eric thought Alan looked like Jon from the back, haha. Saw Derek and said hi, of course. I did understand most of what they talked about in Chinese, which is fine. Then Dad almost forgot to take me home after Mom bought Chinese medicine which you can burn on your hands (don't ask), and some preserved vegetables which were sold as "sliced mustard tuber." Good thing they took me home, since I need to clean / do laundry / take medicine! I had the tablets with me, but still!
