Usually there's a trolley out with hot water and tea/coffee etc. But there's a patient who keeps messing with it so at the moment we just have to ask to have drinks made for us which the staff hate because they make us feel like a nuisance for asking.
It's annoying.

tamobhuuta 20-03-2020 12:12 PM

That is very annoying!

Morning everyone x

EyelinerAndCigarettes 20-03-2020 12:30 PM

How is everyone today?
I've been out for a wander while it was quiet and I'm baking cakes now :)

nonperson 20-03-2020 12:33 PM

Hey guys.

I survived the special opening hours in Asda this morning. Loads of morons outside though complaining that they weren't being let in.

EyelinerAndCigarettes 20-03-2020 12:34 PM

Glad you survived np. Sorry about the idiots!

nonperson 20-03-2020 12:53 PM

Pretty sure people were wondering why was there though as I'm not elderly and don't look vulnerable. Oh well.

There are always idiots, should be used to it by now. =P

Cacoethes 20-03-2020 02:08 PM

Afternoon guys

Cake baking sounds good eyeliner!

There will always be morons.
At least the special opening hours were being enforced

It was fish and chips for lunch today

tamobhuuta 20-03-2020 02:20 PM

I've got a cupcake kit, I might see if my sister will help me with it.

chinahorse 20-03-2020 02:31 PM

Sounds like a good plan tamo.

Old people were giving me funny looks in town when I went for my prescription. I ended up carrying it round like a trophy so theyd stop judging me.

Cacoethes 20-03-2020 02:48 PM

Old people can be so judgy!

chinahorse 20-03-2020 03:19 PM

Yep and they are often the most rude as well. See it a lot at work. The people who are the most polite and respectful and understanding if we run late etc are people under 30 generally.

nonperson 20-03-2020 03:20 PM

They didn't ask why I was entering the shop though so it was relying on people being honest. I guess that most people were being honest though based on the huge queue outside.

Mmm cupcakes and cake baking sounds good.

Old people aren't the only ones who need medication, they should know that. =/

nonperson 20-03-2020 03:21 PM

Also fish and chips...!! Like proper takeaway chippy, Beckie? Or the home cooked version?

tamobhuuta 20-03-2020 03:30 PM

Sometimes I miss proper fish and chip shop fish.

nonperson 20-03-2020 03:32 PM

Is there an alternative?

Trouble is it's all deep fried in the same contaminated oil. =/

Apart from Mars bars - they get their own oil!

Cacoethes 20-03-2020 03:58 PM

It was breaded fish instead of battered but it wasn't too bad!

chinahorse 20-03-2020 04:30 PM

I miss proper chippy chips. Having spent so long living in Plymouth by the sea now I live in land the chips are just not good enough.

nonperson 20-03-2020 04:48 PM

Yep, the best chips are always by the sea! Have you got a coastal town nearby? Maybe they'd deliver. =P

chinahorse 20-03-2020 04:58 PM

Lol no. I live in a landlocked county.

nonperson 20-03-2020 05:00 PM

Ohh, shame. Me too actually. =(

Cacoethes 20-03-2020 05:17 PM

Always loved the fish and chips on the Norfolk coast.
Was born in Norfolk and family still there so we visit often

nonperson 20-03-2020 05:20 PM

Can't vouch for the fish and chips but I haven't found anywhere that does better cinnamon doughnuts than Southend seafront. =P

Cacoethes 20-03-2020 05:39 PM

Mmmm cinnamon doughnuts

nonperson 20-03-2020 05:41 PM

Or cinnamon churros, mmmmm.

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 05:49 PM

Hey guys, how're you?

Don't like cinnamon much-

and I don't know what churros are ^^"

Cacoethes 20-03-2020 05:54 PM

Oooo I love a churro

Hey rose

nonperson 20-03-2020 05:55 PM

Cinnamon is amazing.

Might make cinnamon toast for breakfast tomorrow.

Churros are pretty much just long skinny doughnuts.

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:00 PM

Nope :P

*confused blink and exclaims to no one in particular* google, here I come!

Cacoethes 20-03-2020 06:00 PM

It is indeed

Cinnamon toast sounds delicious

It's dinner now.
Wonder what it is

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:01 PM

How are you?

Oooh I just had lunch-

nonperson 20-03-2020 06:09 PM

Surprise dinner, hope it's nice.

I have leftover spaghetti bolognese... I've lost my touch when making good bolognese though.

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:10 PM

I love spaghetti and bolognese!

Probably not, hows being stuck inside going np?

nonperson 20-03-2020 06:11 PM

Eh, it's ok so far. Trying to get into a routine but I'm feeling a bit glum about it all today.

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:13 PM

hope it gets easier <3

Do you guys know Anna Blue?

nonperson 20-03-2020 06:16 PM

Just gotta wait for the state of the world to improve...


Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:18 PM



how do you upload an image you found?
I found one on facebook because Anna and I wanted to make a thread in the fun and distractions section but I don't know how to upload an image ^^"

Cacoethes 20-03-2020 06:25 PM

It was tikka masala and some other options. And cheesecake for dessert.
I love cheesecake.

I can't wait until all this virus malarkey is over and done with

No idea rose!
I used to be able to do it but my phone has gone weird so I can't now

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:27 PM

Cheesecake :D

Neither can I

Aw, well-
caption this!https://www.facebook.com/AnnaBlueMus...type=3&theater

I want to hear what you guys say! ^^

nonperson 20-03-2020 06:27 PM

I miss the days of being able to put any image you found on google into a forum post.

So... I dunno, save it and upload it to imgbb or similar and then link it from there?

Or attach it directly to your post.

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:28 PM

that used to be a thing?!

I tried it isn't working :((

nonperson 20-03-2020 06:36 PM


Hm, I can't seem to Go Advanced without it freezing the page. *shrug*

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:36 PM

it works for me though-

nonperson 20-03-2020 06:43 PM

Tried again.

There we go. Saved the pic from Facebook and then attached it.

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:48 PM

oh, thank you!

zombiehunter 20-03-2020 06:50 PM

DOOM eternal is ****ing awesome

that is all

nonperson 20-03-2020 06:51 PM

I knew that already...!

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:53 PM

I guess DOOM is an abbreviation for something?

I don't know-

nonperson 20-03-2020 06:55 PM

I don't know either. All I know is it's a game.

Shirayuki 20-03-2020 06:57 PM

Oh ok

What bands do you know?

nonperson 20-03-2020 06:57 PM

I know Skindred at the moment.
