Afternoon all.

What's everyone up to?

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 01:13 PM

I'm watching the sonic the hedgehog film.
Fresh air break soon!

How about you?

nonperson 04-04-2021 01:18 PM

Sonic irritates me =P

How long do you get fresh air for? The sun is nice and warm today.

I'm watching Friends right now but might put a film on, or might fall asleep.

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 01:21 PM


About 15 minutes. Or whenever the other girl finishes smoking. She usually smokes 2 or 3 in a row so it takes a while

Friends is good.
What film do you think you'll watch?

nonperson 04-04-2021 01:26 PM

It's not such fresh air then, yuck. Are you allowed out just once a day? =/

I dunno, I watched Divergent yesterday which I forgot I'd already seen so maybe I'll watch the second one.

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 02:00 PM

Not really. I try to stand as far away as possible!
No it's 5 times a day. But i only tend to go out for 3.

I like the divergent series

nonperson 04-04-2021 02:11 PM

Ooh 5 times is pretty good but I imagine a bit boring just standing there.

I've put Lord of the Rings on but it's a bit heavy for my current liking. Hmm...

I like a bit of dystopia. Might read the books one day.

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 02:15 PM

It is a bit. Some staff let me walk around the car park
Or i chat to the staff and the other girl

I love lord of the rings! You do have to be in the mood for it though

Me too
I haven't read the books but i think I should!

nonperson 04-04-2021 02:34 PM

Thought I wasn't in the mood for LotR but now I'm getting into it =P

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 02:42 PM

Yay! Are you watching the first one?

not_so_insig 04-04-2021 03:03 PM

Hello all.

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 03:36 PM

Hi dawn

not_so_insig 04-04-2021 03:38 PM

Hello Beckie how is it going in IP land?

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 03:46 PM

It's calm today which i am grateful for!
Everyone seems to have settled down

How are you?

not_so_insig 04-04-2021 03:49 PM

That's good.

I am better than yesterday. I was bad mentally yesterday and Friday.

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 03:56 PM

Sorry to hear that
I'm glad you're feeling better though

not_so_insig 04-04-2021 03:57 PM

Thanks xxx

Did you get any easter eggs?

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 04:34 PM

No I didn't!
Usually the ward would do something like that but they haven't this time sadly.

not_so_insig 04-04-2021 04:37 PM

Aww that sucks Beckie.

What are you watching?

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 05:04 PM

I'm just charging the ipad atm.
I got a power bank today with a short lead so i can charge stuff in my room now!

not_so_insig 04-04-2021 05:22 PM

That's great you can charge stuff now.

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 05:35 PM

Yep! It's so much more convenient than asking staff to do it and them then not doing it so my items aren't charged when I go to get them!

nonperson 04-04-2021 08:09 PM

Erf, I fell asleep watching LotR. Yes it was the first one, Beckie.

tamobhuuta 04-04-2021 08:18 PM

Hi everyone. I had a good day, watching TV distracts me. And my parents got me chocolate :)

Sorry you didn't get anything Cacoethes, that's very sad.

I love LotR, I'm reading it at the moment.

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 08:35 PM

Hi tamo
Glad you've had a good day

I haven't read the books. I think I'd enjoy them but concentration is an issue

tamobhuuta 04-04-2021 08:36 PM

I usually read a couple of pages at a time.

nonperson 04-04-2021 08:37 PM

They're quite hard going, really detailed books. The Hobbit is much simpler and shorter, that might be a good one to start with?

tamobhuuta 04-04-2021 08:39 PM

I find the poems and songs hard to follow.

nonperson 04-04-2021 08:42 PM

Yeah they can be hard too. Ever tried the Silmarillion?

tamobhuuta 04-04-2021 08:47 PM

No, but it's on my list, my dad likes it.

nonperson 04-04-2021 09:01 PM

I only made it a little way through before getting lost and confused! It was good though.

Cacoethes 04-04-2021 09:23 PM

I could try the hobbit first!

One of my life goals is to go to hobbiton in New Zealand.
One day...

nonperson 04-04-2021 09:32 PM

I didn't know Hobbiton was real! =O

not_so_insig 04-04-2021 09:39 PM

I watched the first lotr i was disappointed with the ending so gave up with them.

nonperson 04-04-2021 10:27 PM

You kinda need to watch them as a trilogy...

Cacoethes 05-04-2021 10:01 AM

Yes hobbiton is real!
Well, it's actually the film set.

Morning guys

tamobhuuta 05-04-2021 10:26 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 05-04-2021 10:27 AM

Hi. I'm ok thanks
How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-04-2021 11:10 AM

I'm ok but already feeling more anxious.

Cacoethes 05-04-2021 11:15 AM

Why are you anxious?

Cacoethes 05-04-2021 11:51 AM

Nothing to declare is on Now TV
This makes me happy

nonperson 05-04-2021 01:05 PM

Is that a customs type show?

not_so_insig 05-04-2021 01:07 PM

Keeping Up Appearances is on nowtv too Beckie. I highly recommend it.

Cacoethes 05-04-2021 01:11 PM

Yes it is np
Australian customs

I've watched that before dawn. Ages ago but it's not really my thing

not_so_insig 05-04-2021 01:14 PM

Fair enough Beckie (almost put Buckle).

Cacoethes 05-04-2021 01:22 PM


How are you dawn and np?

not_so_insig 05-04-2021 01:27 PM

I am almost back to my normal self. Going for a walk later.

nonperson 05-04-2021 01:46 PM

I'm tired... Looking for a kids birthday present while the laundry is on.

How're you, Beckie?

Cacoethes 05-04-2021 01:54 PM

That's good to hear Dawn :)

Fun times np!

I'm ok. Mostly!
Watching the green mile now. Haven't watched it in ages

nonperson 05-04-2021 01:58 PM

Love that film. Can't get through it without bawling though!
