Yep same! And recently also, watching the piggies! They've been popcorning and playing! They had the zoomies a minute ago!

Enjoy strictly!

not_so_insig 19-11-2022 09:02 PM

I cant watch something without fiddling on my phone. Unless I am drinking something.

nonperson 19-11-2022 09:04 PM

What is popcorning?!

I wish I could dance... I don't know how people can move their bodies like that.

Dawn, I'm worse when I'm drinking! Can't pay attention to anything XD

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 09:07 PM

Popcorning is when they're happy they'll do little jumps! Like a popcorn kernel popping! A jump for joy. Honestly it is THE most adorable thing!

I can dance fairly well! Once i know what I'm doing!

That reminds me, i have a mango and raspberry rekorderlig in the fridge! Yum!

nonperson 19-11-2022 09:17 PM

Oh! Yes I remember my piggies doing that =D Didn't know it had a name! Is that a specific word for guinea pigs?

I don't think that I can't dance... It's probably a confidence thing that goes back many many years, even from gymnastics days, ugh. I'd love to do a jive! Or an American Smooth, lol.

I'm all out of cider. Sad times. Can't drink Rekorderlig anymore, it's far too sweet!

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 09:21 PM

Yes it is!
I didn't know until i joined the fb guinea pig groups!

My nanny takes great delight in telling us all how amazing she was at jiving when she was young! Literally any time anything related to dancing comes up, she'll go on about it XD

it is very sweet tbf!

nonperson 19-11-2022 09:24 PM

Ah the jive was definitely the dance of our grandparents. It was the dance of the wartime era! And even better because it wasn't choreographed.

So sweet!

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 09:28 PM

Shame that we don't really have that kind of dancing anymore!

I've recently got into pink gin and lemonade. But rekorderlig is 4 for 3 atm and a bottle of pink gin is like 13

nonperson 19-11-2022 09:51 PM

Ciders are always on offer! Gin is so popular lately. I've not tried it but I've never got on well with spirits so... I'm in no rush to try. What makes it pink?

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 10:01 PM

I've never tried normal gin. Only flavoured ones.
It's pink because it's raspberry flavoured!
At work we have parma violet, seville orange, grapefruit, rhubarb and ginger....pretty sure there are more! And the pinkster and gordons pink. Which are both raspberry. I can't taste the difference between them though!

nonperson 19-11-2022 10:05 PM

Do they actually taste of raspberry? Or do they still have that spirit burn?

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 10:10 PM

I wouldn't say they taste of raspberry but they do taste sweet! You can definitely taste the alcohol but it's not horrific! Not like vodka

nonperson 19-11-2022 10:13 PM

Hm. Yeah it's that vodka taste I can't stand.

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 10:20 PM

Yeah. I overdid it on the vodka in my younger days so the smell makes me gag now!
I can have it when it's heavily disguised in cocktails but not like vodka and a mixer.
I spent one Christmas day alone and just drank a bottle of straight vodka. That was not a good day XD

nonperson 19-11-2022 10:48 PM

Yeah I haven't had good experiences with it either. Or any spirits really!

No I imagine that was an awful day! =|

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 09:47 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 20-11-2022 11:13 AM


Cacoethes 20-11-2022 11:13 AM

How are you?

tamobhuuta 20-11-2022 11:25 AM

Hey guys. How are you?

nonperson 20-11-2022 12:06 PM

Hey. I'm tired and don't know what to do with myself today.

How're you both?

tamobhuuta 20-11-2022 01:31 PM

I'm doing ok. My mum and sister came to see me which was lovely. I might shower later. Is there anything you need to do?

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 02:13 PM

I'm ok thanks!

Maybe have a resting day today if you're tired np?

That's nice tamo :)

I had double pilates, got a hot chocolate and went to asda! Now back home and put some washing on. Got some chinese chicken drumsticks from the hot counter in asda! Yummy!
Need to shower and change bedsheets too. And spot clean the cage.
Other than that, I'm chilling!

one_step_closer 20-11-2022 02:36 PM

Hi everyone, I hope your day is going well.

Did you find something to do, NP? If you're tired it's ok to rest for a bit.

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit, Tamo.

You're just chilling in between lots of stuff, Beckie! You sound busy as usual.

I changed my bedding too, always do it on Sundays. I washed my hair and hoovered a bit of cardboard mess Crookshanks made from a scratcher that is basically just cardboard and he scratches it and it goes everywhere. I've got a busy 3 days ahead so don't know if I'll get all my usual stuff done. I have to be up early 3 days in a row so I hope I can do it.

not_so_insig 20-11-2022 02:43 PM

Good luck with the getting up early Lindsay.

I have stomach ache :-(

one_step_closer 20-11-2022 02:47 PM

Thanks, Dawn.

Oh no, has it just come on or has it been painful for a while? Do you have anything you can take to settle it? I hope it passes soon.

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 02:56 PM

Fairly busy!
I like to be busy. Think I'd go insane being in the house ALL day! Though tbh it probably wouldn't be so bad now I have the piggies!

Well done for doing stuff!
The cardboard sounds annoying!
I just have hay everywhere XD

Good luck with getting up early!

one_step_closer 20-11-2022 02:58 PM


Animals always make a mess somehow!

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 03:12 PM

They do!
I have a house inspection on Thursday. I'll do a big clean out the day before. Well, maybe on the Tuesday. At work on Wednesday and I doubt I'll want to do a big clean after work!

nonperson 20-11-2022 03:30 PM

Mmmm Chinese chicken drumsticks.

I've showered too and am part way through doing some washing. Geordi's being very clingy so we're just going to watch Doctor Who for the rest of the day.

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 03:31 PM

They were very tasty!

Good plan!

one_step_closer 20-11-2022 05:54 PM

Take it easy, NP.

Have you finished your tasks yet, Beckie?

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 06:00 PM

All i need to do now is put washing away and shower!
But the washing hasn't finished yet
Shouldn't be too much longer!

Have you got anything left to do?

one_step_closer 20-11-2022 06:15 PM

I'm supposed to clean Crookshanks bowls and mats but I have no energy and feel low so I'll have to leave it till tomorrow. Nothing is unclean though. Just about to feed Crookshanks and settle into my evening routine.

What will you be doing when you've finished everything?

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 06:27 PM

That's fair enough! I'm sure he'll survive!

I'll probably just watch doctor who!
Need to eat too but not hungry yet

Cacoethes 21-11-2022 09:10 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 21-11-2022 10:21 AM

Morning Beckie.
How are you?

I'm tired and grumpy. It's bloody cold and there is snow and i refuse to accept the reality of this!!

Cacoethes 21-11-2022 10:24 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Work today though. Booo!

Snow?! Oof!

Zurg 21-11-2022 11:11 AM

I want to go back to bed!!! Winter is best spent hibernating!!!
But my wee Findus is having one of his naughty days…. This is going to be a loooong day :(

Cacoethes 21-11-2022 11:18 AM

Is he ever NOT having a naughty day??

My toes are rather cold!

Cacoethes 21-11-2022 01:58 PM

At work. Forgot that we're showing the England game....

Zurg 21-11-2022 02:46 PM

My internet and tv went for a good few hours :(
Life is so boring when only the real world is there to entertain you!!!

I wish they'd just skip showing any of the damn games!!! This whole ordeal in Qatar is a ****ing disgrace!!!! >:(

tamobhuuta 21-11-2022 02:50 PM


one_step_closer 21-11-2022 05:59 PM

Hi everyone. I was away all day with a friend from the gym group I go to. We just went in some shops but the travelling took a while. It was a nice day.

Snow! It's just really freezing here. I wore my winter jacket and 'brain cosy' hat.

I hope work went ok, Beckie.

Hey Tamo, how has your day been so far?

Cacoethes 21-11-2022 07:24 PM

I remember having a powercut and the phone signal went too! So I was just sat here like.....i do not know how to entertain myself anymore!

Sounds lovely lindsay! Glad you had a good day!

Work was actually fine! Because my pub is outside of the main town centre, i think most people probably went to spoons or some of the other couple of pubs in town. So it wasn't massively busy. And basically no one was in the restaurant all day!
Sadly though, by the time I left work, it was pissing it down and still is! So i got soaked through walking home!
Got changed and sorted the boys out. Will do dinner soon!

tamobhuuta 21-11-2022 07:43 PM

I slept in as a way of fighting the voices' commands to leave. The rest of the day has been quiet too.

nonperson 21-11-2022 07:49 PM

I know that feeling of not knowing how to entertain myself. It happens every time I have a power cut as I don't have phone signal at home so have to rely on WiFi for everything! That's where a kindle comes in handy.

Today's weather has been grim. Have you dried out yet, Beckie?

I'm also glad you had a nice day, Lindsay.

Cacoethes 21-11-2022 07:59 PM

I got changed when I got home so am all dry now!
And I've put my shoes and hoodie on the radiator!
I stepped in many very deep puddles thanks to it being dark and the lighting in this town is crap lol!

Cacoethes 22-11-2022 08:33 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 22-11-2022 11:07 AM

Morning Beckie.
How are you?

Cacoethes 22-11-2022 11:13 AM

I'm ok thanks!
