Vanilla ice cream, stickers, and how others see me

Subena and Yvonne deleted their Facebook profiles, but that was to be expected! Called Steph to see when she and Lisa would be free... I'll call her back on Monday. Went to London Drugs within twenty minutes of waking up at 10:30 to get Nestlé vanilla ice cream and DIEGO / Tonka / SESAME STREET / happy face / dinosaur / truck / sailing stickers to be used in prepping my Millbrook dollar store cards. Got home and spent the next couple hours in greeting card prep before I caught up and was immersed in DRAGON WARRIOR for the day!

People Think You Are Giving

You'll do almost anything for a friend, but you won't be friends with just anyone.

You believe that love should be luxurious. You do your best to always keep the romance alive.

You are completely loyal and totally devoted to your friends. You stay true no matter what.

For you, the ideal relationship is comforting and stable. You hate uncertainty.

Electricity out, wasting food, being rushed, Hot Wings, and Peppercorn Ranch

The electricity gave me some annoyance today, too - it went out for a bit after I microwaved something! MY INTERNET! Barry picked me up at 12:50, right when I was about to eat lunch (WASTE OF FOOD AND BEING RUSHED - I HATE BOTH!) and process the demise of the HST! YOU DON'T DO THAT! There wasn't any Chinese sausage, and the excuse they gave for THAT was "renovations." Right... this is what I bought:

* on-sale Snyder's of Hanover pretzel pieces in Hot Buffalo Wings flavor x2
* vanilla Greek Yogurt, strawberry Olympic Greek yogurt, on-sale bananas, turkey pot pies x4, raspberry-cranberry juice, frozen veggies, Paldo pomegranate aloe drink, Paldo yogurt drink, tapioca pudding, on-sale toilet paper, vanilla soy milk, chocolate soy milk
* on-sale Chunky Soup x4 (Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, Chicken Vegetable, Chicken with Rice, Chicken à la King)
* on-sale Old Dutch Chips x4 (Peppercorn Ranch, BBQ, Sweet and Sour, Mexican Chili)
* on-sale Smart Ones microwaveable meals x5 (Salisbury Steak, Ravioli Florentine, Shrimp Marinara, Chicken Parmesan, Homestyle Beef Pot Roast - 5 for $10 instead of 5 for $20.95!)
* store brand Sidekicks x6 (Creamy Chicken, Fettuccine Alfredo, Creamy Garlic Rafaello, Butter and Herb, Parmesan, Sour Cream and Chives)

The clerk asked whether I wanted bags today - NO, I'M GOING TO CARRY EVERYTHING OUT USING NOTHING BUT MY HANDS! *sarcasm* At least Barry didn't make me carry a really heavy item like 30 bottles of water like he did last month! Nice summer weather, though... won't have much time to game before FFAF, but at least I won't have to be bored out of my tree tonight like I was LAST WEEK! And now I finally get to eat! :D

Finishing EARTHBOUND / Justin Bieber joke / Punk Rock

I FINISHED EARTHBOUND AT 8:15 LAST NIGHT - WOOYEAH!!!!!!!!! Things We've Learned From Playing RPGs and EARTHBOUND Oddities are funny! Now, on to DRAGON WARRIOR games! Jessica G. says she keeps posting links to me, but I don't see them AT ALL - WTF?

Here's a good Justin Bieber joke from Adam:

Reporter: Hi Justin, how do you feel about being a young pop star?

Justin: Well, I think the Gods of Music gave me a gift, and sent me to earth to be a success and make people happy...

(Meanwhile, in the Hall of the Music Gods...)

Beethoven: I sent nobody... and you guys?

Vivaldi: Me neither.

Bach: WTF is he talkin' about?

Mozart: Well, I guess he thought he was a prodigy like me. HAHAHAHA!

You Are Totally Punk Rock

You might not fit the stereotype of a hardcore punk completely, but your heart is totally punk.

You're big on doing things yourself and working outside the system. You don't buy into the 9-5 grind.

You are not a fan of authority, and you can be downright defiant at times.

You like to cause a little chaos and a little noise every so often. You are a true rebel.

Facebook feed renamed BITCH?! / Lighthouse Test

The Internet / my router decided not to cooperate from about midnight till 2 AM. UGH! My Facebook news feed was re-titled "bitch" for some reason! Janina, Julie S., Mike B., and Kaitlin thought it was funny, or wanted one themselves. Julie S. said she bought me something funny at the beach - NICE!

Apparently, it's happened to others as well.

You Are Self-Sufficient

You have no patience with inefficiency. You hate to wait for anything.

You are bored by routine. You need some whimsy in your life to stay happy.

You tend to take control of situations easily, and in return, you get everyone's respect.

You don't have any room for fluff in your life. You abhor superficiality of all kinds.

Toothpaste has EXPIRY DATES?! / Trends

Went out to do some banking, have root beer / potato rounds / a beef fajita burrito from Taco Time for lunch, nab the last copy of PLUNGING INTO HISTORY AGAIN from Indigo Spirit, get on-sale Crest toothpaste [white Scope and green Extreme Herbal Mint] and on-sale Golden Oreo Cakesters from Shoppers Drug Mart, buy toilet paper / paper towels / on-sale Colgate blue toothpaste / on-sale Excel White gum x2 / noodles / a new "You know you're turning 30 if..." birthday card for Jeremy / on-sale Dove lemon shampoo and conditioner from London Drugs, and purchase 45 non-religious but funny birthday cards from the dollar store. I also spent 75 minutes in the food court preparing the birthday cards, and getting rid of the cellophane wrap on them. Got home to find a phone call and a message from Eric, who's passing on the SERVANTS party tonight (and says that I've been away since the future - WOW!); that's perfect, since redrum has started and I just want to stay home anyhow! I've also been responsible and paid my Shaw bill, heh. Then again, I also just noticed that the toothpaste has an expiry date on it - OH MY!

You Are a Trend Ignorer

You believe that there is more than one way to look at things. You're constantly changing your perspective.

You are a study in contradictions and strong contrasts. You are unexpectedly deep.

You do whatever you feel like and pay no attention to what's popular. In fact, trendy things tend to drive you crazy.

You are immune to advertising and marketing. You aren't easily influenced.

Pest control came over at 1:35 to distribute four mousetraps and give me advice on steel wool - at least they said that I could call the management about stuffing steel wool into any holes that I may see! Not sure that they actually WILL, even if Hester's husband said he could; I obviously distrust AMACON on some things, har har! Also briefly talked to Teunis on MSN about updating a component called Microsoft Silverlight and taking screenshots... yay for the Snipping Tool! I found the hidden Mr. Saturn in Happy Happy Village, and did the "fresh egg into chicken = $98 profit trick" sixteen times over. :D

After a LONG time of levelling up (92, 89, 87, 85), I FINALLY GOT THE RARE SWORD OF KINGS!!!!!!!!! HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!!!!!!!!!! DOING A LOT OF YELLING AND SCREAMING! I thought I wouldn't since I was fighting a Starman and a Starman Super, and the drop on this rare item (the only weapon for Crown Prince Poo) is 1/128, lessened by fighting two or more enemies at one time. :D

This is all the money I got after fighting endless Starmen (Supers) at the Stonehenge Base in EARTHBOUND:

Sword of Kings in Jeff's inventory, soon to be given to Poo:

Personal Skype outlets / Baseball park snacks

Kenny, Chris, Adam, Tyler, Tocara / Kaitlin, Steven, David, Kyle, and I talked on Skype about Adam's four-year-old, Kenny's active baby nephew Adrian, game stuff, spicy food, Malaysian stuff, "fish tacos," "trolling" jokes, blogging, NG lungpower, robots, LEAGUE OF LEGENDS, freaking out my cousins with mini-peppers and spices, pronunciation of "General Tso's chicken," "loud Asians," tanks, rusty / moldy dildoes ("What the hell did I just come back to?!"), Hien, getting drunk, Katarina, inside jokes, and more. Good times, although I definitely wouldn't say certain things in real life! But Skype is okay, as it gives me an outlet! Found out that William's deleted his profile again; oh well.

You Are a Hot Dog

You are fun-loving and quick to tell a story or joke. You always know how to have a good time.

You never quite feel settled. You have the spirit of an adventurer.

You are imaginative and very visual. You can play out whole movies in your head.

There's so much in this world that interests you. You like to dabble in a little of everything.

I asked Billie whether she'll be free on the 14th, and it looks like she will be after work - sweet! Ryan buzzed me on Facebook chat about spelling mistakes; poor guy! Later, I found a sticky substance (no idea what) in my Roots knapsack / on my PLUNGES INTO HISTORY AGAIN Bathroom Reader; EWWWWWWW! I'll have to buy the book again, though maybe not the knapsack! I had to throw out almost the entire contents (plus the knapsack itself), since I'm too lazy to wash it or whatever! (saved pens / whiteout / hand sanitizer / a calculator / hand cream) Good thing it's raining today, since I got more sleep than yesterday's gong show!

Kenny just called me on Skype briefly about LEAGUE OF LEGENDS and other things, haha. Called Hester since she'd called me - seems she's always calling from a really metallic place! She says that someone will be by to do something about mousetraps tomorrow afternoon at 1 or 1:30; we'll see how THAT goes since I'm cynical about it! Then I called Barry to finally set up an appointment... Friday at 1:30 sounds the best for my sleep schedule, since he originally wanted Thursday at 10:30! With the way things have been going lately, that wouldn't have worked out! Must bank and get stuff from the dollar store first - perhaps on Wednesday before the party.

You Are as Laid Back as They Come

You are a risk-taker. You love to roll the dice on everything.

You are surprisingly easygoing. You like to keep everything as low-pressure as possible.

You like to be in the middle of the action, although you don't purposely seek attention.

You are an easygoing person who feels very comfortable about others.

Your talking about tracts is off-topic AND creates delays!

For some reason, Eric called me at 9 AM - WTF? Unfortunately, it was "go time" for church and a meeting which ended up being stupidly long, partially thanks to Jen derailing the conversation to talk about tracts at the Skeena Terrace BBQ. NONE HERE, PLEASE! On the way to church, we talked about his picking up a computer case from NCIX / pedophiles / Mr. Creep / Jen being too religious for me / how I should get up at 10 AM every day and go to bed at 2 AM / not going to Jeremy's tonight out of obligation / Wednesday's welfare block party / real life / online friends / making paper into diamonds / games / the Cheat / a tandoori restaurant in Steveston where he and his parents went for dinner last night / being addicted to stuff / being obsessed with stuff / my seeming confused when he called me this morning since I should have had Friday for reference. At church after saying hi to Jon / Harmony / Geoffrey (and discussing Richmond buses), I noticed Mr. Creep in his usual spot, so I sat in my usual spot where Nathan W. and Phil were. Noticed that Chung and Karen (with baby Marcus) were back from Hong Kong, but wondered where Jeremy was since he usually sits by me! Since Christon had mentioned a blackout he was undergoing because of a huge furniture sale at the warehouse, I thought he was THERE! I succeeded in not laughing when Randal talked about what an "exhilarating" experience it would be to get rear-ended in the alley on Broadway in the back of our church, hahaha! Phil later said that he or Grace would try to come out to the birthday thing, but I'm not worried since I know they have baby Micah to take care of now!

After talking to Auntie Ying and Auntie Kathy about Chrystal and other things, I was surprised to see the usual contingent sitting at the BACK instead! I tapped Jeremy on the shoulder to wonder what was up with all this shuffling; he said that Mr. Creep had sat at the front with them last week (which is why I'd had to MOVE), so he was just returning the favor. OH MY GOD, I THOUGHT YOU WEREN'T THERE!!!! Hopefully, things return to normal next week or whenever I show up next! Told him about the Reddit poop link, and said I should email him about it; I just did, in fact! I said hi to Julie C., Auntie Cathy and Uncle Hansel, Shally, baby Micah (who smiled at me TWICE!), a sleepy baby Marcus, his mom Karen I. (little Mattias had been jet-lagged too), Joe T. and Helen C. (who'd been in London during the riots), Lily, Gavin, Hung (chilling in Abbotsford / Wednesday party), Paul, Jonathan C. (his Croatia mission trip pictures are awesome!), Daniel (here for the first AWANA week), Victor, and others before going upstairs to Toddler Sunday School. I saw Dad, and wondered why they'd called me the other day - turned out that I unwittingly avoided lunch with them in favor of gaming! Then Mr. Creep passed behind me and may have brushed my shirt - SHOWER AND LAUNDRY WHEN I GOT HOME! As I saw Stanford and Calla, Kevin asked me whether I was teaching right now since the Committee was going for lunch. I gave him a non-committal answer while saying hi to Frances and baby Isaac, heh.

Saw Ada, Ashley, Ramen, Shira, Arthur (who remembers me), Esther, Jessie, and Rachel's grandma in the room. Told Ramen to give a book to his sister Shira when he was done with it - when he wouldn't, I gently took it from him instead! I also discussed the puzzles that Ashley, Esther, and Ada were working on, and was silly with Arthur. My time with the kids was all too short because Eric came upstairs and offered to get me some lemongrass chicken instead - since I like control, I opted to leave right then. Of course, I offered my excuses to Jessie for next week too - YAY FOR BREAKS! We ended up going to Pho, where Deb joined us after picking Jen up from the Nanaimo Skytrain station. I told her about the birthday party, and it turned out that I did email her about it, hahaha.

Discussed French cooking, barbecues, appreciation, Google, protein from the bean drink that Kevin ordered for lunch, leftovers, Motorola, geeky things, Phil's sermon on forgiveness, technology, defining ourselves, kids, change, and more prior to the meeting. Talked about Martin, Phyllis, Jose, Shally, life stages and transitions, the Skeena Terrace BBQ, Dylan ranting about 200 bottles of bottled water for the walkathon, tans, Cuba, politics, Castro, Vivian's laser eye surgery, Grace, Harmony, Raymond, Randal, Jeremy, the CORE group, Alan, Tracy, planning, Church's Chicken, Eric and Kevin staying on the Committee while Dylan was stepping down, a new small-group format, and more. Afterwards, Dylan agreed with me that Eric had control over the flow of the discussion as chair - it was 4:15 when we left church, man! Eric says he was trying to respect her, but *I* certainly wouldn't have let the off-topic discussion go on for ten minutes! Unfortunately, the next meeting is the Sunday after my birthday - I'll have to come up with something for that! (recovery from the day before? haha)

I let the guys be geeky and talk about development work for the Android while I got a bit of sleep on the way to Aberdeen Mall. Traffic was bad around there as it usually is, and I said that transit was easier! Eric picked up the computer case, and Dylan was going to go to Coffee 2000. However, they only had Hong Kong-style coffee! When Eric dropped me off, Dylan said he'd walk home from my place since he needed the exercise before a family dinner in Surrey - haha, fair enough! I promptly threw away my 15 religious greeting cards AND the blue Aldo bag (it was getting too worn), took a shower, and did laundry when I got home in between talking to Vanessa on FB chat about stuff like feeling dirty because of Mr. Creep! I have to wait till Wednesday to replace those items, though. Dianne emailed me to say that my birthday celebration seems very intriguing, but she's moved to the land of cows, so she'll be there in spirit unless I decide to move to Calgary! Hahaha, I don't know about that!

Update on the POOP thread - the guy who hasn't pooped in the month of August.

James, battles, too-sunny weather, whether I'm wild or domesticated

James unexpectedly buzzed me on YM last night while I was battling a bunch of enemies, haha. We discussed mice, spelling, alone time, the AMACON management here, EARTHBOUND, personal stuff, and the game site. It was brief, but it was also good! Then I got to bed and woke up at 8:40 AM because it was so sunny out - bleh!

You Are Wild

You are very impulsive. You don't think before you act, and you act often.

If it feels good, you're likely to do it. You think most people have too many hangups.

You are secretly a rebel. You need space and freedom to do things your own way.

Many people have tried to tame you, but so far, no one has succeeded. You can't be broken.
