Hello all. Merry Christmas eve to everyone.

tamobhuuta 24-12-2022 05:47 PM

You too insig. What are you up to?

nonperson 24-12-2022 05:51 PM

Aw that's a shame, Tamo. Everyone likes different things I guess. I'm not sure what I'd think of it if I first watched it as an adult!

I'm watching Santa Claus the Movie =) because I am broken after spending hours cleaning the car. Dropped one of my earbuds straight into the bucket of water too...

Pi.R^2 24-12-2022 06:55 PM

Omd np, I’ve a good mind to come down there and take you to a car wash in my car to help you face the scary unknown; it’ll save you hours of your life!! I’m amused to say that that wouldn’t even be the weirdest activity I’ve done for a first meeting with an RYLer :P

Tamo, if memory serves i didn’t think much of Madame Doubtfire either =/

Sympathy Beckie. Can’t believe you don’t get bonus money on Christmas Eve. I’ll start a change.org petition

not_so_insig 24-12-2022 07:09 PM

I just had a chippy tea. Was yummy.

tamobhuuta 24-12-2022 07:27 PM

Oooo a chippy tea! Was it just chips or fish or similar too?

Pi.R^2 24-12-2022 07:41 PM

ZURG. I HAVE URGENT SRS BSNS WITH YOU. Can I shout about what country you're from here or shall I send a PM?

Also hi everyone since I last posted. Dawn, I second tamo's question but hope it was a battered sausage.

Cacoethes 24-12-2022 07:59 PM

Apparently it is extra pay on xmas eve...but only after 7pm. Ffs.
It was the busiest shift of my life! Could barely move in the bar! Also kept running out of glasses. Standard.

nonperson 24-12-2022 08:20 PM

Lol, Jenna. Car wash trip sounds like a good day out! My friend offered to take me to a car wash once but I think she's forgotten, or maybe didn't realise my utter lack of humaning ability.

Also battered sausage FTW!

And maybe not working after 7pm is actually a good thing, Beckie. It'll only get even busier?

Cacoethes 24-12-2022 08:27 PM

I walk past a car wash on the way to work and it was packed! I did think of you np!

I don't think it would be possible for it to get busier! There was literally no room! People were even sitting outside! But there were some people causing issues (vaping inside, being unnecessarily loud!) So glad i don't have to deal with that!

Pi.R^2 24-12-2022 08:27 PM

Well, that's one of the activities for our first ever hang-out sorted!

Still sad that they didn't have the vegan battered sausage at the ALDI I went to. Going to try another one at some point as I simply must have it.

Bless you Beckie, well done for surviving such a tricky shift! Relaxation time now?

Cacoethes 24-12-2022 08:46 PM

That is sad!

Yes relaxation time!
Watching the grinch currently.
I wish I had a dog called max so i could shout 'MAX, FETCH ME MY SEDATIVE!'
Sadly, i must fetch my own sedative.

not_so_insig 24-12-2022 09:18 PM

Sadly I didnt have an battered sausage but a battered cod and chips. But normally I go for sausage and chips from the chippy. Fancied a change.

Zurg 24-12-2022 11:07 PM

Jenna, it's perfectly fine to say i'm danish. Even though we're a very tiny country, i can still remain anonymous XD

I'm home. Tired. Slight headache. Eaten much more meat than my body is comfortable with (and my feelings about animal welfare!!!)

Now it is 11 pm and mr. Asshat next door is having a party. No, not a Christmas party. A party with rave like music and very silly shenanigans. As he did yesterday evening as well…. Every day, when i first hear lifesigns from his flat, i sigh and just accept that the assasins failed once again >:(

Car wash's are a legit death trap, NP!!!! As a kid, our car once Got stuck inside one. It just kept on washing amd washing. I was so scared we were going to starve to death or something like that, trapped in a car wash!!!! Such trauma!!!

Pi.R^2 24-12-2022 11:36 PM

For christ's sake, stop scare-mongering! I'm never going to get np to overcome her car wash fear now!!! Car washes are a perfectly safe way to avoid having to spend hours scrubbing a car.

Did you have an enjoyable day? Gosh, your neighbour sounds challenging. Good luck to the assassin tomorrow I guess *shrug emoji*

So my question, which I accept I may have overhyped- please can you fully explain the literal translation of your word for 92? The internet says it's significantly wilder than the french "4 twenties plus 12".

Cacoethes 25-12-2022 06:56 AM

Morning everyone!
Merry Christmas etc etc.

Pi.R^2 25-12-2022 09:54 AM

Merry Christmas to you too Beckie! I hope your day goes better than you’re fearing- you deserve to have a great day :)

Cacoethes 25-12-2022 10:02 AM

Thanks so much! :)

What have you got planned for today?

Pi.R^2 25-12-2022 10:09 AM

Off to the parents’ house soonish (via my friend’s house as I’m looking after her snake while she’s away!) for standard family Christmas. Minus my sister and also minus christmas dinner as my mum draws the line at out dietary requirements and so they’re having Christmas dinner later in the week when my sister comes :P

Cacoethes 25-12-2022 10:21 AM

Oooh a snake!
Love snakes. So adorable!

Are you going to do your own Christmas dinner when you get home?

I'm hoping by the time i get there, the food prep will have been done. Usually end up peeling potatoes or brussels and i hate it.

one_step_closer 25-12-2022 12:50 PM

Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you have as good a day as you can. I'm full of dread and upset already.

Cacoethes 25-12-2022 12:57 PM

Merry Christmas!
Thank you. It's ok so far. At the fams. Had a bucks fizz and baileys iced coffee! We're about to head off to the local pub.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling great lindsay. I hope the day is better than expected

not_so_insig 25-12-2022 05:42 PM

Sorry you're not so great Lindsay.

I had a fire tv stick. Between downloading and setting up the various apps it took me an hour and a half. I also did my new diary that also took over an hour. Now watching Keeping Up Appearances.

Cacoethes 25-12-2022 07:43 PM

I got a fire stick years ago and it's still awesome!

tamobhuuta 25-12-2022 08:02 PM

Merry Christmas everyone.

Pi.R^2 25-12-2022 08:35 PM

Merry christmas all! Tamo, how’s it going at home?

Beckie yes, we’ll go grab all the reduced vegan/GF christmas food in the shops tomorrow and have a feast!

not_so_insig 25-12-2022 08:43 PM

My mum bought a cheesecake this year. Turns out it is a vegan cheesecake. My dad didn't like it. I havent tried it yet as I stuck to trifle.

Cacoethes 25-12-2022 08:54 PM

Oooh that's a good plan jenna!

We have caterpillar cake (for brother's birthday) and a Christmas pudding which mum is making a massive deal of because it's from Harvey Nichols :eyeroll:
But I'm too full!
Also had slow cooker baileys hot chocolate which was INCREDIBLE!

not_so_insig 25-12-2022 09:08 PM

I had a baileys latte before too.

tamobhuuta 25-12-2022 09:55 PM

I had 4 hours at home but it went so quickly! I had my two favourite breakfasts, opened presents from Father Christmas, had hot chocolate, opened the rest of the presents, falafelled a bit including cutting my toenails (!) And then it was time to come back to the ward.

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 10:16 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 12:05 PM

Morning Beckie how are you? Did Jasmine have a good time yesterday with you?

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 12:06 PM

I'm ok thanks!
Yes we had a nice time :)

How was your day?

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 12:08 PM

It was good thanks. Any plans for today?

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 12:44 PM

Just had a late breakfast. No solid plans!
I think mum is going to drive me home around 2. She doesn't want to be driving in the dark!

It is absolutely boiling! Their house is an 'eco house' which means it just retains heat. One side of the house is all floor to ceiling windows!
It was 26C upstairs this morning and mum said that was cold! Genuinely feels like a summers day.

You got any plans today?

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 12:52 PM

I have just washed and dried my hair. I have my aunt and uncle coming later. A bit anxious about them coming though.

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 01:14 PM

Hope it will be ok
I was anxious about Christmas but it turned out ok

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 02:05 PM

Thanks xxx

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 03:28 PM

I am home!
Have enjoyed Christmas but it's nice to be alone again!

tamobhuuta 26-12-2022 03:33 PM

I'm home for a few hours. The house is so cold compared to the ward! I'm wearing 4 layers and I'm under the super floofy blanket my brother gave me for Christmas.

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 04:08 PM

Welcome home both of you!

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 04:38 PM

Thanks dawn!

I've just been to asda. Town is obviously empty as the only thing open is asda! And the phone shop. Random!

How is it going with your aunt and uncle? Or is that later?

I got a new blanket for Christmas too! A sherpa fleece one.

one_step_closer 26-12-2022 04:48 PM

Hey, I hope Christmas is going well for you all. Reporting that we have a white Boxing Day here.

tamobhuuta 26-12-2022 04:51 PM

Yay for snow! Apparently some places had snow yesterday.

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 04:57 PM

So very nearly a white Christmas!

There was a random patch of slush on the train station bridge! It's not left over from the other week because it wasn't there the other day! Very odd.

tamobhuuta 26-12-2022 07:20 PM

Hmmm odd!

Cacoethes 26-12-2022 07:35 PM

It was rather!

not_so_insig 26-12-2022 11:18 PM

No snow here. It's been dry and not too cold.

Cacoethes 27-12-2022 09:51 AM

Morning everyone!

Pi.R^2 27-12-2022 10:26 AM

Morning! How are you today Beckie?
