Are you meaning that literally Zombie?!

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 07:53 PM

You know how I feel about spicy food!!

Hello everyone!

zombiehunter 11-05-2018 07:55 PM

I think it would be awesome to make coco eat my uber spicy home made chilli and see what happens :-D

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 07:56 PM

Oh good lord no!

MunchBox 11-05-2018 07:58 PM

I've got a disc but you still have to install it. Sucks arse becuse my bro plays online so it can take forever but today it seems to download at a good pace.

Hey zombie and Beckie.

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 08:03 PM

That sounds like a bit of a hassle when you could just use a disc and play straight away in the good old days.

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 08:04 PM

Everything takes forever to download now.
That was the good thing about the old consoles like the N64, no loading time or downloads!!
*is old*

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 08:06 PM

Computers used to take forever to start up though. I'm not sure if I would have the patience for that any more!

Serendipity. 11-05-2018 08:06 PM

And dial up internet!

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 08:08 PM

I am lucky in that I didn't ever experience dial up because it took us ages to actually get the internet so it was broadband by then.

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 08:08 PM

I get annoyed if I have to wait more than a few seconds to load!!
Back in the day, we'd wait forever to load a page!
And only if no one was on the phone at the same time!
And that horrible dial up tone man

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 08:10 PM

Did anyone ever use mobile wap? I was constantly on it when we didn't have the internet.

MunchBox 11-05-2018 08:26 PM

Hey Hannah =)

Yeah, I'm such a noob I thought I could avoid downloading it by buying the disc. Oh how I was wrong.

chinahorse 11-05-2018 08:30 PM

I can't stand slow technology!! We are so spoilt now! I remember the Internet beginning to be a thing and that was slooooowwwww.

chinahorse 11-05-2018 08:38 PM

There's a really irritating old scouse woman talking stupidly loudly in the quiet carriage and it's doing my head in.

MunchBox 11-05-2018 08:43 PM

According to Google saying "shut up yer biff" will put her in her place

chinahorse 11-05-2018 08:49 PM

Hahaha.

As much as I want to I also don't want to get thrown off the train 100 miles from home.

Aubergine 11-05-2018 09:28 PM

Heya.

Pomegranate 11-05-2018 09:32 PM

Hey Aubergine :-)

chinahorse 11-05-2018 09:33 PM

Hallo you two. How're you both?

Aubergine 11-05-2018 09:35 PM

Hey Emma and Lillie. How're you doing?


I'm tired. Things are a bit stressful with the family. Plod on though. Plod on.

chinahorse 11-05-2018 09:46 PM

Oh love. Is there anything we can do to help? Can you try and relax and rest?

I wasn't great to start with then a friend/overly intense ex boss just sent me a guilt trip sort of message (well that how I read it) and now I just :-(

Aubergine 11-05-2018 09:49 PM

Thanks Lillie. <3 It's OK. I have a restful weekend planned. :)


Oh Lillie. :( That's not fair of him. What was he trying to guilt you about? You have nothing to feel guilty for!

chinahorse 11-05-2018 09:57 PM

That's good. I hope it helps you recharge and destress.

It's a, why aren't you talking to me more what have I done sort of message.

Aubergine 11-05-2018 10:04 PM

How rude! It's OK not to reply. You don't have to talk to anyone you don't want to.

chinahorse 11-05-2018 10:57 PM

I'm trying to believe that! Part of me is saying that only I get to choose who I talk to and the other part is saying this confirms negative thoughts etc.

But anyway I'm home and in bed :) after my epic journey. Sort of epic but not really lol.

What're you up to?

Aubergine 11-05-2018 11:02 PM

Hooray for bed! :) Well done for making it home. Does sounds like a long journey! Think you'll sleep tonight?


I'm off up the Newcastle at the end of June, but I only have to change once at a station I know really well, so it's all good. :)


I'm sat on m bed watching White Collar on Netflix. Need to get IN bed, but cat is sound asleep on me and I feel mean moving him!

not_so_insig 11-05-2018 11:07 PM

You can't move cats. It's the law!

chinahorse 11-05-2018 11:11 PM

It's good you're changing at a station you know. It can be stressful otherwise!

Erm move him gently? If he's sound asleep he may not notice?

zombiehunter 11-05-2018 11:23 PM

I can move cats, fireworks help :-D

not_so_insig 11-05-2018 11:59 PM

Naughty zombie

Aubergine 12-05-2018 05:59 AM

He moved eventually without the need for fireworks! :P


Why am I awake?!

Buttons. 12-05-2018 09:12 AM

^ I often feel like that!

Morning all :)

Cacoethes 12-05-2018 09:13 AM

Morning guys

chinahorse 12-05-2018 09:23 AM

Morning everyone :)

What are we all up to today?

Cacoethes 12-05-2018 09:29 AM

Hi Lillie!

I'm off to see the fam today

How about you?

Buttons. 12-05-2018 09:30 AM

Me and the dog are just chilling out watching TV-getting over a bug so think I'll keep things simple :) What are you up to Lillie?

Buttons. 12-05-2018 09:30 AM

Oooh farm that sounds fun Beckie!

Cacoethes 12-05-2018 09:35 AM

Fam not farm!

Sounds like a good way to spend a day Buttons!

chinahorse 12-05-2018 09:35 AM

Ah good good beckie. Will youget a nice home cooked meal?

Oh sorry you've been ill buttons but that sounds like a nice way to spend the day.

Im meeting a friend for tea- the drink. And I need to do boring things like food shipping and house work as I've been away all week. But for now I'm chilling in the front room.

Cacoethes 12-05-2018 11:01 AM

Probably not today
We're going to a rowing regatta thing.
My little sister does rowing.
I'm not sure what it entails.
I'll probably be quite out of place because she goes to a private school and the parents will be all posh!
It's a concern of my mum's too!!

I love how you have to specify that its the drink!
Having to do stuff sucks.
Make sure you make time for you though!

chinahorse 12-05-2018 11:06 AM

Ah it'll be fun beckie! And if all else fails you can mock the posh people :-P hopefully it'll stay dry for you.

Ah see tea is a meal to me in an unspecified context like that. Sadly the friend has food poisoning so has had to postpone. :(

Cacoethes 12-05-2018 11:13 AM

I enjoy mocking posh people :p
My mum legit spent about 300 on a new outfit for the first rowing event to fit in!!

I always think of tea as the drink.
Dinner is the evening meal!
That's a shame :(

chinahorse 12-05-2018 11:33 AM

Lol as long as she doesn't decide to wear a fancy hat :-P

I kind of use dinner and tea interchangeably.
Yeah I feel at a bit of a loss and very :-( now. Struggling to find the get up and go to well get going :-P

Cacoethes 12-05-2018 01:05 PM

She's not a hat person luckily!

Have you got anything else planned for today?

chinahorse 12-05-2018 01:15 PM

Good good lol.

I've cleaned the bathroom and had a face mask- body lotion sort of pamper. Gunna go to tesco in a bit. Then I may force myself to dig out some crochet and watch a dvd.

Cacoethes 12-05-2018 01:18 PM

Are you crocheting anything in particular?

chinahorse 12-05-2018 01:24 PM

Nope. I haven't done it since I was in the cassel so I'll be rusty. I've just been told to do more stuff I enjoy :/

Cacoethes 12-05-2018 01:29 PM

It's worth a go!

chinahorse 12-05-2018 01:39 PM

Maybe. I lack the motivation.

Looking at getting a credit card so I can go to my cousins wedding. I have literally no idea where to start.
