You Are Mashed Potatoes
You like the simple things in life. You think complexity is a lot of fuss and often overrated.
You take the slow and steady approach whenever possible. You never like to be in too much of a rush.
You are conventional and orthodox. You are the most normal person you know.
You like and prefer solitude. You are your own best friend.

Google Chrome problems and gratefulness
You Are Very Grateful
You are thankful for every little and every big thing in your life. You give thanks as often as you can.
You know that anyone can focus on what's wrong in the world; you prefer to focus on what's right.
You see life as a gift, as bad as things may get. Gratitude is a way of life for you.
You want every one of your days to mean something. You don't waste your energy on things that don't matter.

Kenny, trolls, Trevor, Janina and surprises, dream of pizza hair products, and spheres
Had a dream where I was shopping with Cindy; we discovered pizza-scented hair products, so we had to try those! I was also asked out via email by a band producer that I'd been getting to know: "Let's go out - $340 per band - good deal!" Then I was going to say yes, but then I woke up - not like that would happen, anyway!
You Are Quirky
You don't think you are weird, but others do. You have your own definition of normal.
You have a strong personality. You are who you are, and you're darn proud of it.
You act spontaneously, without planning. You don't like to commit to any one thing.
You are a calm and steady person. You may be whimsical, but you're also well-grounded.

Chicken strips, green tea ice cream, and bleach / NO MORE DRY CRANBERRY JUICE!
Beefcake the Mighty left GWAR?! / Casey Anthony / Fried chicken and pizza
James buzzed me on YM last night, so YAY for that! We talked about my noodles, manners, pork chops, Rush being on the radio RIGHT when he said hi, his stepdad's craftiness, and cutlery. Also talked about tortillas, slurping being acceptable in both our cultures, personal stuff, pizza, Youtube videos, black men and fried chicken, Church's Fried Chicken / KFC / Popeye's, bidding me goodnight, and more. It definitely wasn't weird talking about food, although now he makes me want fried chicken. Guess I'll be going out today to get that and a few other things!
Your Summer Vacation Should Be the Beach
You are laid-back and always ready to go with the flow. Plans change, so why even make them?
You are a ton of fun, and you love to bond with others. You make instant friends with people.
You are very charming. People simply enjoy being around you.
A casual beach vacation is perfect for you. You're always down for a little more rest and relaxation.

Poutine and spelling / Alena, Cristo, Brey, Siobhan, and chicken pot pie (dream) / Dorks
You Are a Bit of a Dork
You aren't a total dork, and in fact, your dorkiness may be invisible to the outside world.
You have a few dorky habits, and you're okay with that. You're happy being you.
You are probably a bit of an introvert and an intellectual. You don't go along with what the crowd is doing.
Sometimes you feel like you don't belong in any one group, but you're pretty content to hang by yourself.
Chinese Eric, improving health, Flime haircut, plus Randal being too inclusive
Later, Randal sent us an email implying that Harmony might get lonely with all the guys around - that's never been a problem for me personally since I've always gotten along better with guys! (AND I DO FUCKING EXIST!) He also copied Deb, Connie, Tracy, Vivian, Shally, and Vania onto the email, and referred to them as "sisters" - THEY'RE NOT USUALLY A PART OF THE NATE GATHERINGS... AND THEY'RE FRIENDS, NOT SISTERS! Nathan might need a few more female voices for the research, but that's for HIM to decide, not a perfidious blackguard! PLUS, there is only limited space at Jer's! WTF. At least Deb says she and Dylan already have plans - HA!

Vanquishing DNS lookup errors! / The Circle Doodle Test
You Are Amazing
You know what the good things in life are all about. You keep things simple and focus on what's important.
As long as you have people to love and a roof over your head, you're good. You don't need much to be happy.
You are content with your life as it is. You don't fall into the trap of thinking stuff will make you happy.
You try to live well and with meaning. You are very deliberate.

WHY THE HELL IS KOREY BACK IN TOWN?!
Teunis: 1061 (840 in Blogger)
Visitors: 1131 (1073 in Blogger)
Johan Hedberg: 855
(the last time I did this)
Silly Eric called me at 9:25 to see whether I was going to church today, hahaha - it was a nice day, and YAY CHILDREN! We discussed my "need" for a ride to Richmond later (Dylan? Deb? Jeremy Y.? Ivan?) - WHY THE HELL IS KOREY BACK IN TOWN EVEN IF HE'S MOVING FOUR HOURS NORTH OF POWELL RIVER?! (Diven later said he didn't want to disturb me, but I insisted upon knowing the truth as to why he recommended I stay inside for two days...) Also talked about my "return from being a hermit," marijuana, his not being on crack, going the long way, what I'd done yesterday, Christon's email about the fireworks and my feeling too old for them (what if Mr. Creep comes?! NOOOOOOO!), Spanish, and whether I was "drunk and crazy." Conversed about my grandma's opinion on snow, how late we were, it being better that I didn't know Korey's new location because of my mutterings about firebombs directed at slow traffic / murder, crazy shit going down, and more.
When we got into service (narrowly dodging Mr. Creep), Pastor Tom was telling us something about psychological disorders and narcissism. I wrote to Eric on my bulletin that I knew someone who suffered from that, and it sure wasn't Mr. Creep! (Eric had written on his bulletin to ask whether we were too close to Mr. Creep, heh) While I was writing my tag prompts on my bulletin, Eric wondered whether those were the ramblings of a crazy person! Then I learned that there would be no Adult Sunday School in August - wonder what we'll do then, haha. Eric told me that there was some good news even if I felt like I should have stayed home today, too: Korey's Greyhound bus was late, so he'd be staying for Sunday School! Then he wondered whether I was okay as I started laughing when Pastor Tom told us about killing and salt, hahaha - OF COURSE I AM!
After service, I said hi to Harmony... we both said hi to Grandma, who wanted to eat lunch with us. Too bad Jon and Harmony are tired from last night! I looked for Dylan and Deb, but they were nowhere to be found. Eric pointed out Natalie, but her brother Ivan had a full car, and Jeremy Y. had a meeting later - I went upstairs to see whether I could find Ian and Sean, saying hi to Benjamin and Stella on the way. I found them, so I waved hi to Sean (the autistic one didn't seem like he wanted to talk), while Ian said that they'd go home to Richmond after lunch. Since his parents John and Ada were downstairs, I returned to see them almost right away. They also had a full car because they didn't take the van to church today - crap!
Went into the fellowship hall to dodge Mr. Creep, nod hi to Gino, say hi to Dianne / Reigan / Jinny / Darren C., tell Eric of my findings, talk to Amanda about the fireworks, give the chocolate Easter eggs to Emily and Nina (who's thanked me via FB wall post already), and say hi to Mattias enjoying some watermelon! Calla and Stanford jokingly tried to steal his baby brother Marcus (who cried when we touched him) - even the grandmother (Auntie Catherine) gave tacit approval by moving out of Stanford's way! Apparently, Karen I. had a mother's instinct since she turned around when Stanford was a few feet from the door! Chung Yan was even FACING him, but he didn't do anything while Stanford moved toward the entrance! We wondered whether Marcus looked more like Chung or Karen, but figured that it would be better if he looked like Mommy, hahaha. Harmony, Jeremy, and I discussed Mark's whereabouts ("he's in Abbotsford seeing some girl") / texting / coffee to get rid of faded dye (as per Jeremy's grandparents) / blue dye fading to purple / the rainy weather (at least it DID clear up later!) / my demonstration of the NG LUNGPOWER by yelling "WHAT?!" when Jon asked what my reaction to his reasons why I wasn't at church was / tell Harmony about the fighting and "life and death."
When I went upstairs to the Toddler Sunday School, I saw Mattias (who cried when I took a Minnie Mouse phone away from him, but showed me lots of toy food with a smile) / Anastasia / Ada (who complained that hand sanitizer hurt) / David (who showed me his Batman toys) / Evelyn / Ramen (who showed me a drawing of Mickey Mouse) / Shira / Arthur / two new kids named Emma and Denise. Poured them water, looked after them with Auntie Bessy when Jessie had to leave early, looked out the window when Mattias noticed (Handydart) buses and trucks, admired their puzzle skills, and gave some stickers out. I saw Sean and Conor, who said that Anastasia was their cousin - I didn't know that! Got downstairs to find Eric waiting for me - on our way out, I told Nathan W. that I'd heard he'd had seaweed yesterday, and he did say he liked it! Eric and I discussed my being "drunk," my REALLY going to the closed liquor store / bars when Sunday School was in session, my staying inside ANYWAY for the next two days, Carmen, Geoffrey, Vivian, confronting Randal, decency, walkthroughs, FINAL FANTASY 7, "torture," feeling the need to do something, and other things. It's nice to have uninterrupted blogging time back once again. :D
Banner and abuse nightmare, vocab compliments, periodic elements, and July 2011 BBT Tally
Why the fuck did I have a nightmare that involved Steve B., Candy B., free coffee, flying low over buildings with a lot of banners hung between them and construction, and my sister counselling a kid who was being secretly abused by his dad?! WHAT THE HELL, SUBCONSCIOUS?! Now I'm just having the muffin for breakfast while catching up! Two people on ONTD (whitegirlthin and nicolesnitchie) complimented me on my lexicon when I used the word "perforce" in reference to using Mom's desktop instead of the wireless connection at the townhouse, hahaha. Jon (who's playing piano) and Harmony called just now to wake me up - yeah, I'm awake, people! Harmony called me an ug, so I said that she's also an ug since she's MARRIED to one! CRAZY!
