It's the wind that's cold. I might have to put gloves on soon, my hands are frozen.

tamobhuuta 29-08-2020 11:03 AM

I slept for 13 hours!

nonperson 29-08-2020 11:06 AM


Cacoethes 29-08-2020 11:30 AM

My room is quite cold.
I had to go and ask for an extra blanket at 4am!

nonperson 29-08-2020 12:49 PM

Makes a change from the other place being boiling hot all the time. =P

Cacoethes 29-08-2020 12:55 PM

That is true!
I'd rather be cold than boiling hot

nonperson 29-08-2020 12:58 PM

Yup it's much easier to fix. Artificial central heating on too high is worse than natural summer heat, I think!

Cacoethes 29-08-2020 01:14 PM

That is very true!

Are you up to anything exciting?

nonperson 29-08-2020 01:45 PM

Nope. Was at work this morning and didn't sleep well last night so I'm having a lazy afternoon watching Doctor Who.

Have you got things to keep yourself entertained?

tamobhuuta 29-08-2020 02:03 PM

Which Doctor is it?

nonperson 29-08-2020 02:19 PM

David Tennant with Martha Jones.

Cacoethes 29-08-2020 03:14 PM

David Tennant is the best doctor

I have my ipad and ipod and phone.
And a book.
I just don't really feel like doing anything. Can't even concentrate on music!

nonperson 29-08-2020 03:31 PM

At the moment it's the episode with the Family of Blood and chameleon arch that turns him human in 1913. Really good two-parter. Will have to wait until next Saturday for the second part though!

At least you have some options, I suppose. I can't concentrate on much at the moment either. I'm mostly just trying to stay awake. =/

tamobhuuta 29-08-2020 04:02 PM

My concentration isn't great either, but i have managed to do a little bit of all my activities.

Cacoethes 29-08-2020 04:34 PM

That's a good episode np

Been asking to go to the shop all day but they are short staffed (when are they not?!)
So looks like it isn't going to happen

That's good tamo

nonperson 29-08-2020 05:10 PM

That's rubbish, Beckie. Maybe tomorrow instead. =/

Well done for doing some of your things, Tamo.

Cacoethes 29-08-2020 05:25 PM

They said I'll probably have a better chance tomorrow
I'll believe that when I see it!
Need to do some washing and shower tomorrow as well.

nonperson 29-08-2020 05:44 PM

I hope it does happen.

Fun tasks to do tomorrow then. =/

Cacoethes 29-08-2020 05:53 PM


Yep all the fun stuff!
I'm nearly out of clean clothes though. So I need to do it.
Just hope there isn't a massive queue for the washing machine!

What are you up to?

nonperson 29-08-2020 06:44 PM

Get in there early maybe?

Sunday is usually my laundry day but I did most of it yesterday due to needing clean work clothes for this weekend.

Nothing much. Watching Taskmaster, looking up shampoo bars and feeling a bit headachey/sick. =(

Cacoethes 29-08-2020 07:18 PM

I'll try to

Which series of taskmaster are you watching?
There's a new one out this autumn!
Though no one can beat Jo Brand and David Baddiels team tasks! :p

Ugh sorry to hear that.
Have you eaten?

nonperson 29-08-2020 08:16 PM

I think the first one? With Romesh and Frank Skinner and that annoying high pitched guy that I can't remember the name of...

I did not know there's a new series coming out! Exciting! =D And yes I agree, they made a fantastic team. XD

Haven't eaten yet but I've just done epic washing up and had some water and somehow that has helped. Will put some dinner on in a sec.

Cacoethes 29-08-2020 08:19 PM

I love Romesh. TREE WIZARD! I don't know if you've got to that episode yet :p

Yes there is!
The lineup was announced and everything. I can't remember who it is though.

Well done!
Glad its helped :)

nonperson 29-08-2020 08:27 PM

Ah yes I have seen that episode before! Completely random.

Google says: Daisy May Cooper, Johnny Vegas, Katherine Parkinson, Mawaan Rizwan and Richard Herring

I only know Johnny Vegas from that list. =/

not_so_insig 29-08-2020 08:28 PM

Katherine Parkinson was in the IT crowd and Doc Martin.

nonperson 29-08-2020 08:42 PM

Neither of which I have ever seen.

not_so_insig 29-08-2020 08:47 PM

I have only seen Doc Martin but I have seen clips of the IT crowd.

Cacoethes 29-08-2020 09:01 PM

I love the IT crowd.
Johnny Vegas should be fun to watch

nonperson 29-08-2020 09:15 PM

I think I recognise most of the others even if I haven't watched them in anything.

I reckon Johnny Vegas could be surprisingly good at the tasks, he won't overthink things!

Cacoethes 29-08-2020 09:23 PM

That's true. He probably won't overthink things!
I'm looking forward to it anyway.
It's usually hilarious whoever is in it!

nonperson 29-08-2020 09:45 PM

Yep! It's moved to Channel 4 though which is weird.

tamobhuuta 30-08-2020 10:17 AM

Morning all :)

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 10:38 AM

That is weird np.

Morning tamo
How are you?

Someone has broken both hot water flasks so it's going to be incredibly difficult to get a hot drink for the foreseeable future. A staff member has just made me a coffee in the kitchen but they are going to get sick of me asking eventually!

tamobhuuta 30-08-2020 11:00 AM

Tchuh, that's a pain. Fingers crossed it gets fixed soon.

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 12:32 PM

They can't fix it apparently.
They have to order a new one. And with it being a bank holiday I can't see that happening anytime soon!

In better news, I have been to the shop!

nonperson 30-08-2020 12:52 PM

Oh that's rubbish. Was it done on purpose? o.O Are you not allowed to use a kettle?

w00t for the shop though! Did you buy coke zero? =P

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 01:17 PM

Yes it was done on purpose.
One of the girls had a tantrum.
We can't have a kettle because of the cord

Yes I bought 2 big bottles of coke zero. Should last a day :p

nonperson 30-08-2020 01:41 PM

Hm, stupid tantruming person ruining things for everyone else. Really not cool.
And oh yeah, didn't think about the cord.

I hope you're joking about it lasting a day!

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 01:48 PM

she could have broken anything else, I don't care, but not the friggin hot water flasks!!!
Something at least fixable!!!


nonperson 30-08-2020 02:06 PM

The big 2 litre bottles...???

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 02:20 PM

No the shop only had 1.75 unfortunately :(

nonperson 30-08-2020 02:27 PM

They're still giant. =P

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 02:32 PM

I drink a LOT of coke zero :p

nonperson 30-08-2020 02:33 PM

Would you go all fizzy and frothy if someone shook you?

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 02:41 PM

Most likely! Haha!

nonperson 30-08-2020 02:43 PM

What if you ate Mentos first? o.o;;

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 02:56 PM

I'm going to have to try that out now!
Eat mentos, drink a ton of coke zero and jump up and down on a trampoline!!!

not_so_insig 30-08-2020 03:06 PM

That amount of lemonade would only last me one day too.

nonperson 30-08-2020 03:14 PM

As much as I'm laughing right now you know that won't be a good idea, Beckie!

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 03:23 PM

Well, maybe not.
Would be funny though :p
