Here is a copy of my "strongly worded email" which I will explain in further detail tomorrow
I heard that **** carries the Olympic Mascot vinyl set, so today I decided to come by your store, because according to your site VANOC did not allow online purchasing. It was my first visit and I thought it went well….except…
I opened the set when I got home and I was shocked to find that instead of all 4 mascots, my set included 2 mukmuks (one of which did not have a red olympic mitten) and my Quatchi’s BROWN nose was NOT BROWN. IT WAS UNPAINTED.
This meant I did not receive a MIGA, who happens to be my favourite character. I bought the SET which was supposed to include all four characters and MIGA IS ONE OF THOSE FOUR CHARACTERS.
It took me an hour and a half to get to your store, not to mention the time it took to get home. Needless to to say that I am disappointed with my first and possibly last visit to an otherwise pleasant store. I do acknowledge that this is not entirely ****s fault, but rather the company who created these figures. Prior to this experience, I told many of my friends to visit your store as they were interested in the mascots as well.
I was able to overlook one error, Quatchi’s unpainted nose, but two errors in one set is preposterous. Thus far I have refrained from posting my awful experience at your store online. I am simply asking for the Miga that I PAID FOR, which is the absolute least you can do.
there’s 1 person that always touches my back. it’s not “creepy” touch… it sounds kind of weird, but it’s sort of an “affectionate” gesture. I think it would be okay, provided that I haven’t seen the pesron in a long time. I SEE THIS PERSON DAILY.
I don’t want to tell the person to stop ‘cause I will sound like a big douche. I have to get around it somehow… maybe never turn my back to him.
I generally am not used to physical contact. I used to hug people a lot, now I only do if I haven’t seen in a while.
cancelled data. It feels like a little part of me has died. I don’t have internet 24/7 and that kind of kills me. It is for the better, I have to admit. I need to rid myself of this minor internet addiction.
So… I can’t get wi-fi to work properly. I configured a lot of settings, made a thread and googled a bunch of things. It worked for google’s homepage cause it was pre-loaded. Then I typed stuff in to google and that worked… kept clicking links and it worked. At least I have google, so I can just search up whatever I’m looking for. I can’t type something into the address bar though FFFUUUUUU manual labour.
Ubertwitter doesn’t work GRRR and email won’t apparently because it uses “push” which you need data for. bloody hell.. bb sans internet is really lame after all.
I got a free read case-mate case from the guy at rogers. woohoo!! it’s $20 according to the site (:
I was supposed to see them last Sat @ livecity, as that was the only reason I wanted to go… but I didn’t. Went Robson instead. Mom and I had a huge fight over where we should park; me determined to park at PC, mom saying we can’t get in.. though we COULD HAVE. We parked somewhere else for $18…..
lolo omg me and my mom got a fight over a parking issue too. we had to pay $15 to park at safeway. and i was like hell naw theres so many other places you can park for free and only walk a short distance. she yelled @ me and said she didnt want to risk getting ticketed. soooo, i left and she realized she didnt have enough change cause i forgot i took her money. lol. and then she was like SCREW THIS and parked at pho tam. in the end our car didnt get towed and we saved $15. so technically thx to me, everything went good in the end. lol.
oh ya i know. parking is a sensitive subject… LOL PC would have been $6 only. I believe that parking should be free everywhere. It’s ridiculous how much money people milk in because of PARKING…
I bought the “I tame wild things” shirt by junk food without trying it on. I CAN’T FIT IT BECAUSE I AM TOO FAT! Yes it’s my stomach… nearly one year of minimal physical activity. It’s kind of sad, really. In my defense, it was kind of a tight shirt, so I gave it to my sister *sigh*
I want the ARITZIA YETI loose long sleeve now. @ Robson I saw 3 people wearing it! OMG I MUST HAVE IT (maybe try it on this time lol). I’m waiting until March before I buy. Mom likes it too so it’s all good.
me: mom I’m going to buy this her: ok sis: HEY HOW COME SHE’S ALLOWED TO BUY W/E SHE WANTS BUT NOT ME?????
For my sis, it’s always me vs. her. According to her, it’s never fair. It is though, she just doesn’t see it. Fortunately, I don’t want to buy everything @A like my sis.
warning: spam of posts to come due to my lack of homework tonight & long list of drafts lol
Mom and I picked out Atlantis luggage at the bay on sale!! We bought 3 pieces and rolled it out of the mall like retards.
The next day we come back to buy 1 more piece, so “each person has their own large suitcase” according to my mom. There amidst deciding on which size to get(it was between 2 differently sized 28”), we met this middle aged caucasian woman. She said she was looking for 1 more piece so she has a matching set with his husband. While talking to her, she mentioned the weight of the luggage empty.
Previously, this had totally escaped our minds! We did not remember weight restrictions on airplanes and then we realized ours were kind of on the heavy side. We are so thankful to have met her, cause we promptly returned our luggage the next day! It will be a while until we look at that stuff again.. hehe
I was supposed to see them last Sat @ livecity, as that was the only reason I wanted to go… but I didn’t. Went Robson instead. Mom and I had a huge fight over where we should park; me determined to park at PC, mom saying we can’t get in.. though we COULD HAVE. We parked somewhere else for $18.. whereas PC would have been $6.
I looked for olympic shizzazz a couple days before but I got SMACK. Everything was basically sold, or sent to the bay downtown for the tourists. People line up from what.. 6 am to get olympic gear. It’s insane. I kind of wanted to buy a boys CANADA jacket off someone, but I’m afraid it might fit to large so I didn’t… kind of still contemplating though. I like the red ones better anyway..
Rapper on ROBSON: when I say Canada you say YO, canada.. YO… Canada.. YO.. when I say Canada you say GOLDDDDD!!
Ate hotdogs. Everywhere else was too crowded anyway. $6 A HOTDOG?!? THIS IS UNWANTED MEAT I TELL YOU!! Damn olympics causing prices downtown to influx like crazy! Then had starbucks cause it was kinda cold.
Watched this dude do a “crazy daredevil stunt show” from the beginning..For the record it wasn’t that crazy. I was just afraid he will fall and break his head because it is a LIVE show and on TV they would never show anybody dying if anything went wrong lol. that is why I find much comfort in watching Criss Angel (who to think of it isn’t on anymore..?) Like last time w/ ALE he guilted us into giving him money with the following speech:
"I don’t get paid to do this. I do this because I love it.. if you enjoyed the show I would appreciate it if you give a small donation to keep this show going! $2, 5, 10, 20… $100 heck I’d go home with ya!"
Went home after 2 hours of Olympic festivities. It was kind of lame. Yaletown was too far and mom didn’t know the way so I said F it cuz my feet hurt lol. (8 hours of work beforehand!!)
wifi on phone doesn’t work… all the time. it works then it doesn’t FFFUUUUUUUUU i can’t figure it out
i forgot my graphing calc @ school so I have to resort to online ones, which to my pleasant surprise actually work
calc is confusing me… CONTINUITY GGGGRRRRRRRRRRRROMG
himym is on in 25 mins
socials quiz tomorrow = memorize 5 sheets
just overall madattheworld
today this indian baby kept on touching my legs. it caused me to say “excuse me your baby is touching me”. it was actually a toddler but w/e. speaking punjabi to me.. and tryna look at my phone. it obviously did not notice my crazy stare, but was intrigued by it instead.
For our leadership class, our task, which we have one month to complete, is to do some kind of random act of kindness in the community. It does not have to involve money, but as the unpassionate person that I am, money makes the world go round and people will appreciate strictly that.
Upon hearing our assignment, I got all giddy and excited. I read that someone paid for this guy’s McD meal at a drive thru because when you get your food you can see the other person’s bill if you ask. I thought it was brilliant and that if that ever happened to me, heck that would make my entire month. It’s inattendu and I would not ever forget it.
But BM had to contribute an example of something similar, involving TIM HORTONS, to the class and that stripped me the originality of my idea. I wasn’t happy until I realized I could do what I’ve been meaning to do for a while. Buy a meal for a homeless person (my vision took place on Robson to be exact lol). I have to look up some ideas!!!!
You may be dealing with something that has you feeling cynical about humanity and the state of the world. Throughout time, each generation has looked back at the past as more idyllic and fulfilling than the chaotic world of today. If you are now longing for a simpler time, you don’t have to wait for society to change; you can change yourself. Make your own life simpler. Take more time to savor each day. Most of all, remember that these are the good old days. In the future, you’ll look back on today as a better time. So start thinking of it that way now.
importance of this: though I think horoscopes are just useless mumbo jumbo, because I have realized that, as the wise, yet fictional Sheldon Cooper has stated:
Horoscopes are nothing more than a mass cultural delusion that the sun’s apparent position relative to arbitrarily defined constellations at the time of your birth somehow affects your personality.
it’s true. anyway sometimes I read it for fun, just to see if it actually matches what I’m thinking/is going on in my life and 15 mins prior to reading this, I was reading L’actualite and saw a picture from the 40s or 50s of men dressed in suits. They looked happy for the most part and I thought to myself “those were simpler times”.. feeling overwhelmingly nostalgic and melancholic.
*mind fuck* lol
The reason why these horoscopes actually fool people, is simply because they state very general advice that anybody at any given time could use. For instance, “take a break off of work” or “talk to someone you lost contact with”. EVERYONE has someone of said relation, and everyone thinks they need a break from work. You see? IT’S A SCAM
I asked my mom if Ky Duyen, co-host of Paris by Night is bac and she said, Bac ‘54. I’ve heard this reference before but I never really understood what it meant.
The government offered people from North Vietnam $$$ to move to South Vietnam… I think this was pre-war. My grandpa wanted to only get the $$ but not move. He wasn’t allowed so he just went home.. LOL.
mom: if we moved to s. vietnam back then we would have been so much more happier! (in the nam they were more modernized, rich, etc.) me: do you think you would’ve still immigrated here? then you wouldn’t have married dad lol. mom: I don’t know. You can’t tell. then I would have married some other guy!! (lol)
EVERYTIME I ask her “what if” she never gives me a real answer. It’s always “I don’t know”.
In summary, they are bac people have moved to the south in 1954, thus still having somewhat of a bac accent.
When Cook Tr. is last block I have a spare. I love this arrangement. On Fridays, I can leave earlier for my french class and not be late. Other days, I can go home early.
I didn’t take a spare during this year, even though it was strongly recommended to me. After hearing mme. C’s speech on spares, I realized that it would only be an opportune chance to waste time and not get anything done.
It’s not like I need credits. Heck, I have enough to graduate this year, given that I take Eng. 12. I might take one for next year, if it is a requirement to take leadership 12 again. I have to check with Mrs. B.
This friday I will leave the school at 1:30, go to VOLTAGE on main and buy me some mascot vinyl toys for $35 :D. It’s not far from my classes so I’m happy. wee!!
mascot toques with ears. $18-25 I like quatchi… but miga is nice too. I haven’t seen sumi
red olympic mittens (FUUUUU WHY DIDN’T i buy these in the first place. Sears just HAD TO BE CLOSER)
today went to temple AGAIN. hella crowded. ppl everywhere. saw vanna n mary again. and guy ‘x’.
after went to china tow’. more azn people. bought banh baos and random food. walked to downtown. so many people the streets were closed. fucking olympic crazed people. went shopping. eg. urban outfitters, adidas, aritizia. didnt find anything i liked there. though i did go to true value vintage. saw this cute red beret and vintage glasses i liked. wanted but didnt get. cause i always have this fear that they used to belong to some old lady that died and probably had no will or something so ppl went in and donated her stuff or w/e.
went to a candy store. i finally found this candy i’ve been looking everywhere for for 10 years. no idea what it’s called. but i found itt. doesnt taste as good as i remembered but it brings back memories. lol. i bought a lot of candy buttt i ate it all already so yeah.
downtown is crazzay. its really fun too. so many performers. after when went back to surrey central so dalena and camille. she was working at tna so i called her to come hang when i was downtown but she came after i left. boo.
probably gonna go around this week again. i didnt go ZIPLINING YET!! jenny!! lets go0o.
- on friday I made the principal toast. yes you read that right. then he said “thank you sweetheart!”
- calc teach. said he was walking us dog wearing a CANADA jacket and someone asked him if he was in the olympics. he’s almost 65 I think. “look at my hair, I’m old!”
- while serving @ caf (first day!), lrsn was getting food and said to me,
him: I’m getting impatient, *name*. I want to find out who the mother is! me: same here. what happened last episode? I missed it. him: *someone I forget* tries to pull the naked man.
At this point I was > o_O. how often do conversations between teachers and students involve the word naked hahahaha. I am such a child.
- last week at work, GW said “nice phone” while I was going back inside and I felt around my pocket to find it. “OH SHIT I FORGOT MY PHONE THANKS”. At this point we both were lol-ing. oh yeah he has the same phone but in white.
- bought my where the wild things are tshirt!! this time I got it sent there so I don’t have to look for it and waste time.
Back in my VX forum whoring days, I heard of “RS”. I went to their front page several times, but I never thought of joining because of 2 reasons. The first being the poorly designed front page(the text glows…HAHA I need not say more) and second it’s an “automotive” site.
I joined mid-2009 because I wanted to make a thread.. about CARS. I was looking for different sedans that have 4WD lol.
I have noticed two different things about me. I love reading.. but it’s hard for me to get into a book. Now, I read RS at night before I sleep. I need my daily dose in order to get a good night’s sleep! Yes, I read this forum site instead of books. It’s kind of sad.
Next, I’ve been saving car pictures and putting them as my phone background! I never ever thought I would do this, but ever since I’ve paid some sort of attention I have come to admire cars more than I did before. Plus with high-res photos, it really compliments my blackberry! It’s kind of profound, really.
Nonetheless I’m embracing these changes. Some of the trolls on there definitely keep me entertained and coming back. Now, I lurk mostly instead of post. In my VX days I had 10,000+ posts (most of which were useless as u can probably assume..) Once I was even called “queen of vx” by PL ROFLMAO!! AND I have had my fair share of flaming and e-beef(lol ONCE!!!!!!!!!!). After VX was MV, a shopping site LOL. Yes I am a member of both car and shoping sites… who would’ve thought.
Finally, forums are pretty damn great. I’ve learned a lot about life and current events!
