Sounds good!

nonperson 23-12-2020 10:08 AM

Good morning. How's everyone?

The rain is making me grumpy. =(

Cacoethes 23-12-2020 12:21 PM

I am grumpy because my glasses are broken. The arm has come off one side.
I have no idea how. They were absolutely fine when I put them down to go to sleep as normal. Then this morning they were broken!

not_so_insig 23-12-2020 12:48 PM

I have had 2 amazon parcels today. They came in 2 separate deliveries within 20 minutes of each other. You would think that they would come in 1 van.

nonperson 23-12-2020 01:21 PM

That's mysterious and annoying, Beckie. Have you tried oculus reparo?

Amazon doesn't make sense, Dawn.

Cacoethes 23-12-2020 01:49 PM

I've had that before Dawn!
Very odd

I tried occulus reparo np but it didn't work
So a.member of staff went to specsavers for me and they are now fixed!

nonperson 23-12-2020 02:22 PM

So oculus reparo did work, of sorts. It sounds like magic for staff to be nice and helpful. ;)

Cacoethes 23-12-2020 02:24 PM

Haha! Yes I suppose it did work!

There is a dance party at 4:30 today *shudders*

nonperson 23-12-2020 02:29 PM

Oh dear lord, Beckie. I'm horrified on your behalf.

Cacoethes 23-12-2020 02:43 PM

Thank you. No one understands why I don't want to participate!
They keep trying to get me to go in for the buffet and Christmas karaoke. Which sounds just.....so awful.

not_so_insig 23-12-2020 02:51 PM

Doesn't sound like fun Beckie. I would hate it too.

Cacoethes 23-12-2020 03:08 PM

It doesn't sound like fun at all

One of the staff tried to emotionally blackmail me into going and said that it would 'make her day'
I'm still not going

nonperson 23-12-2020 04:14 PM

I hate it when people expect you to find things fun.

Karaoke sounds even worse.

Maybe grab some buffet food after everyone's got bored of it all?

Cacoethes 23-12-2020 04:23 PM

Karaoke is awful

It'll be dinner soon anyway and I had lunch so I'm not hungry

Cacoethes 23-12-2020 04:26 PM

Yesss the TV remote is broken!
No more smooth radio!

nonperson 23-12-2020 05:07 PM

*high five!*

I'm assuming it's stuck off and not on something else equally annoying.

Cacoethes 23-12-2020 05:17 PM

Yes it's stuck off luckily!

nonperson 23-12-2020 07:15 PM

It's a true Christmas miracle XD

Cacoethes 23-12-2020 07:27 PM

It is indeed!

not_so_insig 23-12-2020 07:36 PM

Let's hope that there isn't a spare remote.

Cacoethes 23-12-2020 09:00 PM

There isn’t thankfully!
And it will probably take them forever to get a replacement :)

tamobhuuta 24-12-2020 09:28 AM

Good morning everyone. I'm debating whether to get out of bed.

tamobhuuta 24-12-2020 10:28 AM

I am up! Had a mince pie for breakfast :)

one_step_closer 24-12-2020 11:33 AM

Morning Tamo, did you enjoy your mince pie? I'm not a fan.

not_so_insig 24-12-2020 11:46 AM

Morning all. I am watching my favourite Christmas film (Santa Claus the movie) which has Daisy from Keeping Up Appearances in. I got a Christmas card from the USA today.

tamobhuuta 24-12-2020 11:51 AM

A good start to the day then.

I did enjoy the mince pie, it was homemade too.

not_so_insig 24-12-2020 11:59 AM

I had advent chocolate for breakfast followed by gingerbread yoghurt.

not_so_insig 24-12-2020 12:03 PM

Oh no the person who sent my card who is one of my oldest online buddies has coronavirus :-(

Cacoethes 24-12-2020 12:04 PM

Afternoon guys

tamobhuuta 24-12-2020 12:05 PM

:( that sucks I hope they recover soon.

not_so_insig 24-12-2020 12:23 PM

Thanks tamobhuuta.

nonperson 24-12-2020 01:56 PM

I highly approve of mince pies for breakfast.

Also Santa Claus the Movie is my favourite Christmas film too. =D

Cacoethes 24-12-2020 02:09 PM

Muppets Christmas carol is the best Christmas film. Fact.
And I'm not usually a huge fan of the muppets

nonperson 24-12-2020 02:25 PM

Ohhh I forgot about that one! It is very good.

Cacoethes 24-12-2020 02:39 PM

It is indeed!

How is everyone doing this afternoon?

nonperson 24-12-2020 02:50 PM

I like Gonzo and Rizzo whether they're Christmassy or not. =)

I'm starting to feel a bit sad and emotional... x.x

How're you doing?

Cacoethes 24-12-2020 02:59 PM

Yeah they are funny
I loved muppets treasure Island as well!

Oh no :(
How come?

I'm ok. Allowed in my room thankfully. I was about ready to.smash the speaker playing Christmas music so they let me in

not_so_insig 24-12-2020 03:13 PM

Another of my online friends has coronavirus :-(

Cacoethes 24-12-2020 03:15 PM

Oh no Dawn

nonperson 24-12-2020 03:33 PM

I'm sorry, Dawn. Hope they'll be ok.

That's good you're allowed in your room, Beckie. How long will you get a break away from the music? =/

I dunno, just thinking about Christmas and stuff. It's heightening the alone feeling.

Cacoethes 24-12-2020 03:50 PM

I've been kicked out again :plain:
The lounge is quiet now though.
I think everyone is going to be watching a film at 4 in the other room

Christmas is awful this year. Are you going to be seeing anyone?

nonperson 24-12-2020 04:03 PM

Oh that was brief. =( Are you going to watch the film too or stay in the quiet?

Christmas is awful... I'm entirely on my own. It's not worth the risk to visit my parents like we were planning.

Cacoethes 24-12-2020 04:08 PM

Nope I'm going to stay in the quiet.
It's probably going to be crap Christmas films anyway

Oh no that's awful np :(

nonperson 24-12-2020 04:16 PM

Good decision then!

It's ok. Just feels weird and really surreal at the moment. We never do a big Christmas anyway, but still...

What plans have they got for you tomorrow? =/

Cacoethes 24-12-2020 04:22 PM

Same here really. It's mainly present opening (for Jasmine mostly!) And a Christmas dinner. The rest is just chilling.

No idea. Hopefully they'll just leave me alone.

nonperson 24-12-2020 04:26 PM

I hope so.

Maybe you should tell them you're a Jehovah's Witness or something. They shouldn't really force Christmas on everyone, especially in a confined space. =(

Cacoethes 24-12-2020 04:35 PM

That's a good idea. I'll tell them that!
They probably won't believe me though

nonperson 24-12-2020 05:58 PM

No, they probably won't. =(

I've just changed my bedding and flipped the mattress. About to watch the Snowman.

My neighbours left a little present for my cat on the doorstep. =)

Cacoethes 24-12-2020 06:10 PM

Well done!

Aww that’s cute

nonperson 24-12-2020 06:12 PM

It's cheered me up. It was addressed to my cat from their cat too which is even cuter.
