My dad didn’t have to stay overnight in Kamloops, he got home just after 8:30 last night. He cashed in my two dollars that I won when he was out and he got me a BLACKJACK and a CAPTAIN CASH. I won $2 on the CAPTAIN CASH. When I first sat down in the living room to do the scratches before winning the $2, Izzy jumped up on the big coffee table and sat down near me. My mom then said she’s just who we need when we’re doing the scratches, black cats bring bad luck. She may be a black cat, but again you now know that I did manage to win $2. Speaking about Izzy, not long before supper yesterday she zoomed across the kitchen floor and then she skidded.

I got your reply that you sent me this afternoon titled “shortest ever” and my mom plans to head out when you’re here tomorrow afternoon and start on my dad’s birthday shopping; the movie “I Am Legend” just came out on DVD, Alan Jackson has a new CD out, and my mom might also look for another sudoku book for him. I might pay her for one of those things if she finds any of them tomorrow and that will be my birthday present to my dad from me. I have an old Best Buy gift card sitting around that only has a couple dollars left on it and I also have the $25 one for Future Shop that I told you I got last Christmas, my mom said that she could take those with her and just use one of them if she finds something that could be from me. And I previously told you that I had originally thought about maybe putting the Future Shop one towards a new stereo for myself. I think you already know that the stereo I have right now upstairs in my bedroom is almost 15 years old. Anyway, my mom’s thinking that she might go up to the Best Buy in Whalley by Central City Mall, Future Shop’s there too and Future Shop is actually inside the mall on the top floor where Sears use to be. Shoppers Drug Mart is below Future Shop and she said that she could look where their magazines are to see if they have any sudoku books and there’s also the Black Bond Books store upstairs just outside Future Shop. And I said this in the message I sent you on Saturday Dec.15,2007 after I went out cat shopping with my mom earlier that same day, I said to her today that if she’s browsing around the mall tomorrow she could keep her I open and see if she finds where the Tim Hortons location is:

> ...We also saw signs up around Surrey Place today that a new Tim Horton’s had just opened in that mall, but we
> just don’t know where in the mall that would be. Must have been in a part of the mall we didn’t go to today...

I plan to have a pack of graham wafer Thinsations “Thin Crisps” for my afternoon snack tomorrow BTW.

It turned out that your favorite muppet from “Sesame Street” was Cookie Monster, the same one who I sent you a video of. And I see which site you found that image you sent me last Monday (the 24th), maybe I could give him bunny ears in that shot just like I had already come up with these ideas:

• From the message I sent you on Wednesday Mar.5,2008

> ...Maybe we could search for an image of the "Sesame Street” cast (one that has Kermit in it) and then I could add
> Miss Piggy@01C88F78.89898E00" width="15" border="0">.

• Thursday Mar.13,2008:
> I guess there’s room in the above image to paste a dog to the right of Jasmine. Or you remember one time when I
> looked at one of my dog books with you and we saw one weird looking dog that I had never saw before and that
> I thought looked like a monkey and not like a dog, well maybe Aladdin’s pet who I cut from the above image is a
> monkey dog...

You said that when you saw the Cookie Monster YouTube video, you didn’t pay attention to what Cookie’s favorite curse word is or which muppet Cookie would like to see on a new dollar bill:

> ...I think you’ll like the video we did find including my thought that you’ll probably get a kick out of what he
> thinks about sardine ice cream
, quote “maybe you could send that over to Oscar.” And after you learn what
> Cookie’s favorite curse word is, Cookie will then tell you which muppet he would like to see on a new
> dollar bill...Hint, I told you he’s my favorite muppet from the “Sesame Street” cast
> Elizabeth: “What is your favorite curse word?”> Cookie: “Boy me can get into trouble on this one.”
> Cookie: “Well uh me have favorite dirty word.”
> Cookie: “Yah this filthy word.”
> Cookie: “You ready?”
> Cookie: “Ready for this one?”

And just before I said that, I wrote in the same message:

> • One time a few months ago when my dad was on the laptop looking up ideas for songs to use as background

Incase the video I sent you the link to is not the right one, maybe something we could do when you’re here tomorrow afternoon is go on YouTube and see if we could find it ourselves. We could have fun watching different videos. And maybe another afternoon when you’re here we could have Mac over and all three of us could sit at the computer watching YouTube videos.

One of Sherlock Hemlock’s most famous segments on “Sesame Street” is "X Marks the Spot," here’s a YouTube video of him singing it. The imagery of X-ray machines and bottles of poison used during that segment frightened many young viewers. Now correct me if I’m wrong, but was it him who’s most well-known catchphrase was ”it's all elementary, my dear Watson?”

I said this in the message I sent you last Saturday (the 22nd):

> We also talked about a lot of different movies when you were here last Monday (on the 17th), but I’ll save what I have
> to tell you about those for another message. This message is now eight pages long plus I should probably wait to

You read to me in the newspaper that “Horton Hears a Who!” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” just came out in theatres. I’ll remind you first though about what I said in the message I sent you on Sunday Feb.24,2008:

> ...I haven’t watched movies with my mom since before the altercation a few days into the beginning of 2005. There
> were many times since that altercation when I had planned to watch a movie with my mom but either there would
> be another altercation or something else that would stop me...

I’ve seen “The Wizard of Oz” a few times and I thought that it was really good, but of course it’s been a few years since the last time I saw it. One thing I remember seeing in this movie is when Dorothy's house lands in Munchkin Land and then the Good Witch of the North advises her to follow the yellow brick road, I saw a red brick road starting there too before Dorothy follows the yellow brick one. I always wondered where that red brick road leads to.

• I think I remember telling you when you read to me about this in the paper that day that I already know that the movie “Horton Hears a Who!” will be based on the Dr. Seuss book of the same name. And Jim Carrey who you told me will be doing one of the voices in that movie also played “the Grinch.” I also remember you told me that “Horton Hears a Who!” will be a computer-animated film like “Ice Age” or “Toy Story” for example. I own “Ice Age” on DVD but haven’t seen the sequel yet. For the last ten years computer animation was the only kind of animation that I’m interested in. I have gotten attached to not wanting to watch animated feature films such as “The Lion King” or Aladdin since the time when my dad couldn’t accept me for who I am being one to watch cartoons while at High School age. Also back when I went to school, my dad wanted all the friends that I would have to be normal kids and didn’t like me to have other special needs kids in the house.

• When you read to me about “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” I remember you reading that Karen Allen who played in “Raiders of the Lost Ark” is returning to the big screen with Harrison Ford. She shares both the same first and last name with my aunt. I own the fullscreen DVD franchise which includes “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “the Temple of Doom,” and “the Last Crusade.” And also I heard sometime within the last year about plans to remake those three. I’m also into the Indiana Jones video games series most recently completing “Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine” six years ago. I got “Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb” for my 21st birthday four years ago, but haven’t played it yet nor have I even opened it. I previously told you that I haven’t played any games on the computer for a few years until I played that Catz game with you a few weeks before Christmas. I also completed “Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis“ back when I lived in Whalley and I still have the game upstairs right now, it will probably run on the ol' Pentium 133 MHZ in my bedroom. Before “The Fate of Atlantis” came “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” which I also played the graphic version of when I lived in Whalley, but didn’t get to the end of this one. This game is based on the third and final installment in the movie franchise BTW. I own not one, but two legally boughten copies of the graphic version both on 3.5 inch floppy discs. Both my copies only support the internal speaker on newer soundcards including my P133’s soundcard and neither copy has voices. I had always wondered if a newer version of the game had come out on CD-ROM since then where voices were added and where the sound was upgraded and made compatible with newer soundcards. The version that I own of “The Fate of Atlantis” is on CD-ROM, has voices, and is compatible with newer soundcards. And I also own “Indiana Jones and His Desktop Adventures.”

While we’re on the topic about movies, I’ll tell you that I’ve seen all three movies in the Back to the Future trilogy and I now own the fullscreen Complete Trilogy on DVD. And you asked me when you were here two days ago (on Monday the 24th) if I’ve seen “The Karate Kid,” I’ve seen all three movies in that series; The Karate Kid (1984), The Karate Kid, Part II (1986), and The Karate Kid, Part III (1989).

When Serena was here last month on Monday Feb.25,2008 and I took her upstairs and showed her my bedroom, she saw my “Puss in Boots’s” poster on the wall from the movie “Shrek 2.” I also saw Antonio Banderas, who played the voice of Puss in Boots’s character in “Shrek 2,” in the Spy Kids trilogy. And I saw Julie Andrews, who also did one of the voices in “Shrek 2,” in “The Princess Diaries.” I only saw the first one in that series and haven’t yet seen the second one. Anyway, when Serena was here that day she told me that she has “Shrek 2” on DVD (a legal copy). I then told her that I copied that movie and then she agreed with me and said, “That’s the way to do it.” It’s so expensive to buy most movies on DVDs, somewhere around $25 while it’s much cheaper ($5) to rent the DVD movie and then copy it.

Another thing Serena told me when she was here that same day was that she likes the older DOS games too. I then told her that I’m probably the only person in the world who still has a Windows 3.1 operating system. You know that I prefer those games to the newer/current ones because they have larger graphics that are easier for me to see.

That’s it for movies, now I’ll list which songs I remember you singing when you were here on Monday two days ago:

• Do You Know The Way To San Jose - Dionne Warwick
• Downtown - Petula Clark
• Woolly Bully - Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs

• I also remember you whistled that same day yet again “Yummy, Yummy, Yummy...I Got Bugs In My Tummy.” And incase you were waiting to see if I knew that this one is a spoof of The Ohio Express’s biggest hit “Yummy, Yummy, Yummy:”

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy.
I Got Love In My Tummy,

• And you didn’t sound like Pumbaa this time when you sang "A wimoweh, a-wimoweh a-wimoweh, a wimoweh...”

And here are the other excerpts from the message I sent you last Saturday (the 22nd) that I asked you if you read and then you said that you either missed, forgot about, or skipped over these:

> P.S. This is the best I could find for images of Easter cats, and I’m disappointed that I couldn’t find any Easter
> cat smilies (again AKA emoticons).
> In addition to the following images, check out this image on Flickr photo sharing website...

> My mom’s pretty sure there was a guy named Brian who worked at “Show-time Lighting” when David worked there
> in the late 1990s though she’s not 100% sure. This was back when they were in the same Surrey complex
> where David had his two locations and before David first started his own business. They since moved to
> Burnaby after David stopped working for them...

My dad flushed that big male molly that was in my 38 gallon just after he got home today at around 5PM, he had finally passed. That was the only big male that I had left, before I buy anymore males I’ll wait and see first whether any of the males that he brought down from upstairs grow a sail fin once they are big enough to do so. I also no longer have any big females right now, again I plan to wait and see if any of the small females that my dad brought down live to grow big enough to breed.


P.S. You told me when we last saw each other two days ago that you checked all the links that were at the end of the message I sent you last Tuesday (the 18th),
