Oh cool beckie. LOTR is so long!!

Apart from one who I had to tell off who knows better. Who also doesn't know that I know she was bullshiting because I have more scar tissue than she ever will.

I have all of one morning and some of one afternoon in. And tbf I'm only out on Wednesday to get my hair done.

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 08:36 PM

It is very long!!

Getting your hair done should be nice!

Aubergine 04-02-2018 08:41 PM

Oh getting your hair done sounds good! What are you having done to it?

nonperson 04-02-2018 08:41 PM

Also watching The Hobbit.

I dunno which I prefer... LOTR or the Hobbit. With LOTR they missed out lots of bits because the books are so long... but with the Hobbit they added a whole lot of weird stuff in to make one shortish book into three films!

Aubergine 04-02-2018 09:01 PM

I found the Hobbit films good, but not as good as LOTR.

not_so_insig 04-02-2018 09:08 PM

Hello everybody.

Aubergine 04-02-2018 09:13 PM

Hey Dawn!

nonperson 04-02-2018 09:15 PM

There's some slightly odd looking CGI in the Hobbit too. Think I just wanted it to be amazing because I love the book so much and was actually a bit disappointed in the films.

Aubergine 04-02-2018 09:16 PM

I've never read it. Shame you were a bit disappointed. Always annoying when that happens! There was a film based on the book called Room that I never went to see because I didn't want it to ruin the book.

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 09:20 PM

Films are very rarely as good as the books!!

chinahorse 04-02-2018 09:24 PM

True dat beckie.

Has anyone been watching call the midwife?

I feel so poorly I've gone to bed super early. I require sympathy :-P

Aubergine 04-02-2018 09:24 PM

Very true, Beckie! You are correct! Up to much?

Aubergine 04-02-2018 09:25 PM

I don't watch it, Lillie. Any good?

Glad you've gone to bed if you're not feeling well. An early night will probably do you good. :)

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 09:29 PM

I do like call the midwife but I'm not up to date with it!

Sorry you're not feeling well Lillie!
Hoepfully an early night will help

chinahorse 04-02-2018 09:31 PM

Ah I was asking to see if it's worth catching up with. I liked the previous series but haven't watched any of this one.

Thank you people. It better help as I'm 9-6.30 tomorrow.

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 09:35 PM

Ugh that's a long day!

Aubergine 04-02-2018 09:41 PM

That is a long day. My days are 9 - 6 and I thought that was a hardship!

chinahorse 04-02-2018 09:41 PM

Yeah means I'm out from half 8 till 7 (at the earliest). Ah well. Such is life until I get a better job.

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 09:45 PM

How tiring.

I've got college tomorrow but don't want to go!

chinahorse 04-02-2018 09:49 PM


Cacoethes 04-02-2018 09:51 PM

Definitely swap!!

Aubergine 04-02-2018 09:55 PM

Come work with me, Lillie! Don't know whether it's a better job or not, but the staff seem better than yours from what you've said. No one ever gets told off!

I'll go to college for you, Beckie. You have to go speak to my manager and find out if I'm sane enough to carry on working thought...

Cacoethes 04-02-2018 10:05 PM

Hmmm. That doesn't sound like something I would be particularly good at aubergine!! :p

Im off to bed now.
Sleep well guys!

Aubergine 04-02-2018 10:08 PM

Haha! Night night, Beckie. I hope you sleep well! Have a good day at college tomorrow. Only a short day to get through. :)

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 10:32 PM

Hey all! Have fun at college tomorrow Beckie. Work sounds long tomorrow Lillie.
What times your mum taking you tomorrow Aubergine?

Hi Dawn, non person, zombiehunter and anyone I’ve missed!

Aubergine 04-02-2018 10:39 PM

Hey Emma. How was work? How has your evening been?

Mum is picking me up at 12ish. Not sure I can sit with it for that long though, so might go first thing instead. Will see how I feel in the morning.

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 10:46 PM

See how you feel in the morning. Are they expecting you at any particular time?

Work was long but not too bad. Glad it’s over. Not had dinner yet. Starving but not long been home (I went to a friends’ after). Think I’ll be up quite a while.

Aubergine 04-02-2018 10:52 PM

I'm glad it wasn't too bad. It was a long time to be at work. What's for dinner? Could you put something on now? I hope you had a nice time at your friends house.

No, no time. She just said there are two of them all day, so to pop in whenever.

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 11:17 PM

Prob going to have cheese burger again with salad. I’m rubbish at deciding food at the moment. My friend just phoned so going to put it on during the next csi break!

What you upto?

Aubergine 04-02-2018 11:24 PM

That sounds nice. Burgers are lovely. How long until the next break? Was it nice to talk to your friend?

I'm sat on my bed messaging a friend.

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 11:26 PM

Is it helping to talk to your friend?

Next break is in about five minutes. It was nice to talk to my friend :-). She’s texting me again in a bit to help with meds.

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 11:26 PM

Also, how do you hide where you are online? You’re like a ninja...there but never there on the ‘watching’ section :-p

Aubergine 04-02-2018 11:52 PM

Yeah, my friend is great. :)

I'm not just LIKE a ninja... ;)

You got food now?

Pomegranate 04-02-2018 11:56 PM

I’m glad :-)

OMG! You’re a ninja?? :-p

Yeah, eating now. Aware how late it is lol

Aubergine 05-02-2018 12:04 AM

Eating late is better than not at all! Is it nice?

Yup, ninja at your service. ;)

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 12:05 AM

Was fairly nice thanks :-)

Gotta love a ninja! What you upto?

Aubergine 05-02-2018 12:09 AM

A vegetable shaped ninja, of course. :)

I'm in bed with the light off. Got some Einaudi playing. :) You?

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 12:53 AM

Eaten and taken meds and clonazepam. Playing win the demon cat and watching csi. My dad is texting me and winding me up but ignoring him.

Aubergine 05-02-2018 12:57 AM

Well done. Good idea to ignore your Dad if he's winding you up. My Dad is a strange fish too. He brought me up on his own from when I was 4 until I was 10. It's a wonder I turned out so well adjusted, really... :P

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 01:00 AM

Thanks. I got 4 A’s and a B in A levels and he’s going on about how I’m a failure for not getting a*s. We didn’t even have them in a levels in my day. He’s just looking for a reaction. Now he’s saying they bribed the media to tell me that so I didn’t feel bad. I wonder how I’m so well adjusted too ��

Aubergine 05-02-2018 01:06 AM

Oh Emma. That is not nice. You got amazing results and I don't know what he's on about with the media. Couldn't get A* at a A Level in my day either. It's good that you know he's just looking for a reaction and it's really positive that you're not giving him one.

See, my Dad doesn't say stuff like that. He often tells me that worrying about me makes him unwell and that I make him feel sick though. He sometimes accuses me of lying when I haven't at all. He went through phases where he couldn't be responsible for me when I was a kid, so I would go and live with my Nan for a while. I love him, but he's nutty as a fruitcake.

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 01:14 AM

I genuinely think my dad is too. Although a lot of his is down to alcohol misuse but he had a hard childhood so I suppose it’s understandable. I’m sorry your dad isn’t great sometimes either. Thanks for listening to me rant.

Ooooohhhhh....it’s gone midnight :-p

Aubergine 05-02-2018 01:22 AM

A hard childhood is no excuse for being mean, even if there is alcohol involved. It explains it, but it doesn't mean it's OK. Keep ignoring him until you feel like you're ready to respond. Rant as much as you like. :)

Thanks. It's funny, my Dad and Nan raised me because my Mum walked out, but now I'm closer to my Mum. Mum had me when she was 16 so I can see why she left. It's a lot of responsibility to raise a child and when you're that young you don't want it. That and my Dad was awful to her. I used to be so cross, but have completely forgiven her. She is such a rock now. A superhero really, dealing with me so much!

Aubergine 05-02-2018 01:22 AM

It has gone midnight. I'm off. I hope you get some sleep. :)

Pomegranate 05-02-2018 01:35 AM

Thanks Aubergine. Nice chatting. Sleep well :-) keep us updated tomorrow!

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 08:06 AM

Morning guys!

Aubergine 05-02-2018 09:08 AM


Cacoethes 05-02-2018 12:07 PM

It is 0 :plain:

How are you?

Aubergine 05-02-2018 12:51 PM

It's cold here, too. Really bright and sunny! though. My favourite weather. <3

How's college?

Cacoethes 05-02-2018 12:57 PM

Its rather bright here too!
Apparently a 49% chance of snow though :ermm:

I'm in one of my most hated classes, independent study!
But leaving 15 mins early so i will be leaving in 17 mins!!
(Don't you just love my countdowns) :tongue2:
