Glad you're ok. Did you have many rowdy messages in the work chat?

I've been awake since 4am and am stressing about whether I need to get Geordi to the vet today or not... so not great.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 01:14 PM

Yes. Many.
Including many pictures of colleagues passed out on the floor/on tables! Including big boss!

Oh no :(
I hope Geordi is ok

nonperson 01-01-2022 01:41 PM

Nice... O.o I don't get why people find that sort of thing funny or to be proud about...

I've just booked a video consultation with the free vet thing I get with his insurance. Absolutely shitting myself, never done a video consult before. My vets are closed today and I dunno if it's an emergency so I don't want to ring them and get in the way of a real emergency.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 01:46 PM

They are all young uns. They will learn!
Well, I think big boss is actually older than me...and he has 3 young children and a wife who live above the pub!
Must have been difficult for them to sleep last night!

Poor Geordi..
I hope it's nothing serious

nonperson 01-01-2022 01:55 PM

I bet they're used to the noise.

Nah I don't think it's anything serious, he's had this same bum gland infection before but I don't want to leave it until tomorrow and have it burst again!

5 mins until the call.......

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 02:00 PM


Bless him.
Can't be nice

nonperson 01-01-2022 02:10 PM

Well that was an experience. I never thought I'd ever have to be showing my cat's bum hole to a person on video call...

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 02:15 PM

Well that's....interesting!

nonperson 01-01-2022 02:24 PM

I know right! We didn't manage it because I couldn't get him to stay still once handed or enough light to his back end. Gonna have to go to the normal vet when they open tomorrow I think.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 02:30 PM

Hopefully he'll be ok until then.
I'm sure if he's had it before and been ok then he'll be fine

tamobhuuta 01-01-2022 02:33 PM

Hi people :)

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 02:38 PM

Hey tamo
How are you?

one_step_closer 01-01-2022 02:39 PM

Afternoon everyone. I really hope you have a great new year.

I hope Geordi is ok NP. I freaked out when one of Crookshanks's anal glands burst and because I didn't know what it was I took him to the emergency vet. Everything always happens when my normal vet is closed.

Sounds like your colleagues had fun Beckie! I prefer your night in, though I know you didn't have a choice.

Hi Tamo, how are you?

tamobhuuta 01-01-2022 02:40 PM

I'm ok thanks. I went to Confession which was a relief. What are you up to?

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 02:49 PM

Looks like they definitely had fun!
Yeah my night was ok.
Could have done with some company though!
It's mainly today that I'm gutted about missing.
The pub is closing early so staff can have a little party.

Glad you're ok tamo!

I'm watching hotel transylvania 3!

tamobhuuta 01-01-2022 04:45 PM

Is it good?

nonperson 01-01-2022 04:54 PM

Are they going to want to party after last night's antics?!

I liked Hotel Transylvania 1. Did not know there was a 2 and 3!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 05:07 PM

Yes it was quite good!

Haha! They're always up for a party!

How did you not know?!

one_step_closer 01-01-2022 05:41 PM

From what I maybe remember I've only watched the first Hotel Transylvania and didn't like it much.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 05:50 PM

Fair enough!

I'm watching ice age collision course now
Not actually seen this one!

nonperson 01-01-2022 06:38 PM

Don't think I have either.

I'm watching Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 06:42 PM

Oooh I forgot that was on!
It's on after this. I'm on +1

tamobhuuta 01-01-2022 06:44 PM

I'm watching Waterloo Road. Been having a binge.

nonperson 01-01-2022 06:44 PM

Cool. Not long until it starts then.

nonperson 01-01-2022 06:44 PM

Ninja Tamo. TV binges are good!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 06:48 PM

I used to love Waterloo road!

Nope! The news is on first so I'm going to go for a quick shower and get into some nice fresh PJs!

nonperson 01-01-2022 07:00 PM

Ohh boo for the news! But a good opportunity to get clean.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 07:07 PM

I am clean!
It's about time as well. Haven't showered in about a week!
There just doesn't seem like much point as I can't leave the house!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 07:11 PM

Oooh there's a special episode of taskmaster on tonight!

nonperson 01-01-2022 07:25 PM

It's nice to be clean for your own personal pride though isn't it?

I like being clean. Definitely could not go for a week without showering....

Does it have new contestants on it?

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 07:28 PM

Yes that is true!
I do feel a lot better for it

Yes it does!
Adrian Chiles, Claudia Winkleman, Johnnie Peacock and others I can't remember

nonperson 01-01-2022 07:31 PM

Interesting mix!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 07:34 PM

I will definitely be watching!
I'm going to miss all the good new year telly

nonperson 01-01-2022 07:40 PM

I got really confused then - was about to say "Why, where are you going to be? It'll be on catch-up..." and then realised what you actually meant.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 07:43 PM

Haha! :tongue2:

I decided to open a WKD.
I've finished the raspberry lemonade ones so I'm having a berry one

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:06 PM

I didn't know WKD was still a thing. Or that it came in flavours other than... blue, lol.

I've got a couple of bottles of cider than need using up tonight.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 08:09 PM

I didn't either!
But brother and his fiancÚ got me a box of them for Christmas!

Just normal cider or flavoured?
I recently had a rekorderlig mango and raspberry at work. That was yummy!

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:13 PM

I'm saddened to have just read that Bacardi Breezers were discontinued in 2015!

Normal cider - Katy. Can't drink those flavoured ones any more. I think it was a Rekorderlig watermelon one I had recently for a change and it was nice but just tooooo sickly sweet.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 08:18 PM

That's disappointing
I spent many a cold winter's night, in parks, with my friends drinking bacardi breezers!

Yes they are incredibly sweet tbh!

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:23 PM

I missed out on doing that... =/

Smirnoff Ice too. Apparently they're still around!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 08:30 PM

It wasn't all that great tbh!
Just the nostalgia value really!

I did love a smirnoff ice too!

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:35 PM

I know. I guess I just didn't do a lot of the things growing up that people find nostalgic now =/

It was all about the alcopops back then. Even my dad used to drink them!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 08:40 PM

It's not for everyone!

I don't think my step dad would touch them (he's an alcohol snob) but the rest of the family like them!

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:52 PM

No, but kind of a rite of passage.

Alcoholic snob sounds like an oxymoron.

There's too much stuff on tv that I want to watch tonight. Wonder Woman is on now and then Resident Evil AND Venom at 9pm.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 08:53 PM

He pretty much only drinks obscure beers and ales.

So annoying when that happens!
I like resident evil but it freaks me the **** out!

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:58 PM

Oh totally. I haven't seen it in years but still claim it to be one of favourite films even though it used to give me nightmares for days. I made my mum watch the laser slicing scene once. Think I genuinely traumatised her!

Venom is funny, I might go for that instead. And I've joined Wonder Woman party way through so can probably drop that at 9 but I couldn't turn down a bit of Gal Gadot in the meantime.

So used to just watching things on demand nowadays that scheduling tv seems way too hard.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 09:01 PM

It is pretty traumatising!

I haven't actually watched venom yet!
I do need to!
I liked wonder woman. A lot of people moan about it but I enjoyed it!

I know! We are spoilt!

nonperson 01-01-2022 09:07 PM

I don't think I've seen Venom all the way through but what I have seen I have liked!

And yeah I liked Wonder Woman too but probably because I don't know anything about the comic book character so it was just a good film to me.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 09:12 PM

I will probably like it!
I love marvel!

I don't know a lot about the comic either
It was a good film
I like captain marvel too
A lot of people had an issue with that too!

nonperson 01-01-2022 09:36 PM

I really liked Captain Marvel but that was not because of her character but definitely because of Fury and the flerken =D
