I've heard a lot of people say they like background noise, but I prefer quiet, everyone's different I suppose, when I moved out my parents couldn't believe I didn't want a TV in my room - there is space for one - when I visit them they have the TV & radio on, too much for me. There's a place for a radio too, but I prefer quiet.

Cacoethes 25-09-2017 07:52 PM

Im the opposite. Quiet freaks me out!
Apart from when I'm trying to sleep, then all tv and radio etc HAS to be turned off!

Cpt_Stunning 25-09-2017 08:00 PM

There has to be a fine balance, I remember when I turned 18 & started going to nightclubs, they used to blast the music out so loud, I couldn't even hear myself think, let alone hear what the person next to me was saying, tbh only really went to them only because my friends wanted to go after the pub closed, I've never minded pubs, because we could play pool, relax.

Hi people! How is everyone doing?

Cpt_Stunning 25-09-2017 08:06 PM

I'm OK, just watching a movie on YouTube, how are you?

Cacoethes 25-09-2017 08:07 PM

I don't really like clubs any more.
Pubs are waaay better imo!
Im getting old I think :p

Hi eska!
How are you?

Sketchy 25-09-2017 08:08 PM

Hi all.

I'm back and could use a distraction.

What you been up to Eska?

Sketchy 25-09-2017 08:09 PM

I like pubs. I like my local pub and I go there often with my sister because we live four doors away.

Eska 25-09-2017 08:11 PM

Hi Cpt!

Beckie I agree, pubs are the way forward! Although I do like a good dance now and then. It's been ages since I was out though!

Hi Lorraine, where have you been?

I've been settling back into living here. It's going ok. I've been climbing/bouldering a couple of times and had some meals with my friends and stuff so all pretty positive in that respect.

Cpt_Stunning 25-09-2017 08:11 PM

There was a nightclub that I did like, but it closed down years ago, fallen into a state of disrepair they should knock it down.

Sketchy 25-09-2017 08:14 PM

I'm not the best but trying to distract.

That sounds really positive Eska. The climbing sounds fun.

That's a shame cpt. I haven't been to a club in ages. I prefer the pub.

Cacoethes 25-09-2017 08:15 PM

That sounds good eska.
Glad you're settling in well :)

There are bascially no clubs near me!
Well, my college town has clubs because its a uni town but the last bus goes at like 7:30pm so I can't really go out clubbing or anything!

Sorry you're not feeling great Lorraine

Sketchy 25-09-2017 08:18 PM

Thanks Beckie.

There are plenty of clubs in the centre of Glasgow and the public transport is good, so I could go if I wanted to. But I don't anymore. I used to a lot in my twenties, but I can't face it now.

Cpt_Stunning 25-09-2017 08:21 PM

I mostly only go to a pub nowadays to have a carvery, I'll have a pint of cider, but mostly for the carvery's that they do, I do like to have a steak & chips too in a pub, but I mostly eat at home. It's so much cheaper, I'll have a spag bol from Morrison's that I got for a quid, ready meal.

Sketchy 25-09-2017 08:22 PM

It's nice to have a pub meal. I like eating at my local pub. They do good pizza.

Sketchy 25-09-2017 08:24 PM

Cpt you keep putting me in the mood for spag bol. I make it with soya mince though. Yum.

Cacoethes 25-09-2017 08:24 PM

I haven't had a pub meal in ages!
Do love a pub lunch!

Cpt_Stunning 25-09-2017 08:25 PM

I was in the Navy Reserves for 8 years, & spent a while in Edinburgh in 2003, went out into town with the regular navy guys, they let us into the pubs, but not the nightclubs, scared there may be trouble I suppose, we were all English & navy.

Sketchy 25-09-2017 08:27 PM

That's a shame you didn't get to go to the clubs. I can't imagine there being any bother. I've only been to pubs in Edinburgh. There are some nice ones.

Cpt_Stunning 25-09-2017 08:29 PM

I really enjoyed Edinburgh, I went to Glasgow in 2004, stayed outside, a place called Faslane, only briefly for training.
