My family pay for mine now!
They originally used my Netflix but I was always broke so the payments couldn't go out. So it's my account still but they pay

not_so_insig 26-01-2022 06:57 PM

I have Netflix. Only recently so I havent watched anything on it.

nonperson 26-01-2022 07:16 PM

Ah bummer. I don't have Netflix.

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 07:18 PM

Whaaat?! How can you not have Netflix?!
EVERYONE has Netflix!!!

nonperson 26-01-2022 07:21 PM

Not me!

I have NowTV and Disney+ and Amazon which is more than enough.

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 07:32 PM

I had to drop nowtv. I wasn't really watching it and they always took payment at the most inconvenient times!

Me and the junior doctor were discussing star wars when he was taking my blood (i was wearing my star wars t shirt in ward round yesterday)
Now I need to watch them all again!

nonperson 26-01-2022 07:51 PM

Hmm, a Star Wars filmathon does sound appealing!

I still haven't watched the Mandalorian... Shameful. There's the new Boba Fett series too, no idea what that's like.

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 07:53 PM

I'm too into snowpiercer at the moment to deviate from it right now though lol

I haven't watched it either! I also feel shame!
The doctor recommended it!
Yes there is, people on my geek fb group have been talking about it!
And the new film coming out! Kenobi.

nonperson 26-01-2022 08:00 PM

Did not know about a new film! =O

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 08:07 PM

Actually I've just googled it and I think it's actually a series. Rather disappointing! It should still be good though! And it will obvs be on disney +

nonperson 26-01-2022 08:35 PM

Obvs. Yeah I'm sure it will still be good! There's just so much coming out. I can't keep up with it all...

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 08:53 PM

I know! I have so much to catch up with!

nonperson 26-01-2022 08:57 PM

It shouldn't be so hard to watch something new =|

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 09:04 PM

I know!!!
Why is it so difficult?!

Cacoethes 27-01-2022 10:42 AM

Morning everyone!

They woke me up at 7:15am to do my blood sugars :plain:
I was in a deep sleep too and was like 'where am I?!' I literally asked her that! Lol

tamobhuuta 27-01-2022 11:30 AM

Lol oh dear. Did you get back to sleep?

Cacoethes 27-01-2022 11:37 AM

I’m not actually sure!
When I was woken up I didn’t even know where I was at first!
Must have been in a deep sleep.
I think I got another half an hour of snoozing until they started literally shouting about breakfast :eyeroll:

How are you tamo?
(Tamo autocorrected to taco lol)

tamobhuuta 27-01-2022 12:37 PM

I am ok. Took zopiclone and got good sleep. I'm planning to have a shower. Is there anything to do on the ward?

Cacoethes 27-01-2022 12:48 PM


Not really.
I overheard some people being invited to a psychology group but no one asked me so idk!
I did spot the OT assistant who I know from several wards who usually talks to me. But so far all she's done is smile while walking past. Usually she's dead set on trying to get me to go to groups!

one_step_closer 27-01-2022 05:48 PM

Welcome to the evening. How are you all?

Cacoethes 27-01-2022 06:10 PM

I'm ok thanks. May be discharged on Monday! Or at least they may start the CTO paperwork on Monday. This doctor can't do it apparently :eyeroll:
So got to wait for consultant. Stupid weekends. They should work 7 days a week for my convenience :tongue2:

How are you lindsay?

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 01:49 AM

Morning everyone :tongue2:

tamobhuuta 28-01-2022 10:46 AM

Proper morning now! How are you?

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 11:25 AM


I have some stuff going on
Just been made to write on the whiteboard lol
No idea why the nurse came all the way to my room and asked me to do it!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 28-01-2022 11:28 AM

What did you write? I am ok, trying hard not to be anxious, so having a cup of tea with my parents and sister.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 11:41 AM

Just the nurses names and the patients they are allocated to today.
And I also wrote 'have a nice day' with a smiley face :)

Tea is a good plan! I might go and get a coffee!

tamobhuuta 28-01-2022 11:51 AM

That's cool. Are there any activities available today?

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 12:02 PM

They had pamper group this morning. Which i really hate so avoided that one!
Don't know about any other groups!

shadow-light 28-01-2022 12:12 PM


Cacoethes 28-01-2022 12:22 PM

Yo Hazel!
How are you?

shadow-light 28-01-2022 12:29 PM

not too bad though I appear to have managed to catch covid despite almost never leaving the house nor seeing people :ermm: own faut so whatever

how are you?

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 12:33 PM

Yes I saw! Poor you!

Mood wise I'm great! Other stuff going down though!
I've decided to watch the rocky horror picture show

shadow-light 28-01-2022 12:37 PM

ah, finally a film/tv thing we do not agree on :laugh: no idea why but i'm not a fan of rocky horror

nonperson 28-01-2022 12:39 PM

I love Rocky Horror! Haven't watched it in forever. Did you hear Meatloaf died? =(

Hot patootie. =P

tamobhuuta 28-01-2022 12:43 PM

Hi shadow, Hi np :)

shadow-light 28-01-2022 12:43 PM

ye, of covid apparently. The radio must have played every single song he was even slightly connected to that day

nonperson 28-01-2022 12:49 PM

Hey Tamo. =)

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 12:53 PM

Fair enough Hazel!

I haven't watched it in ages either np!

yeah very sad about meatloaf. What a ledge

nonperson 28-01-2022 12:59 PM

I did not just play the Time Warp scene on youtube and dance along.

shadow-light 28-01-2022 01:06 PM

everyone always goes on about what a great film it is, but I don't now, I think I lost focus like 5 mins in as I was just confused the whole time when I tried to watch it

maybe I should give it another go at some point

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 01:10 PM

Yes np!!!
I'm totally going to add it to my playlist lol

It's not for everyone Hazel! If you lost focus early on then it probably wouldn't make much sense though!

tamobhuuta 28-01-2022 02:02 PM

I've never watched it but love dancing to the song!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 02:11 PM

It is a very good song!

nonperson 28-01-2022 02:13 PM

I don't think it's really meant to make a lot of sense!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 02:19 PM

Well yeah. Not really!
Such a great movie though!
I will now have time warp stuck in my head for the rest of the day! Definitely worse things to be stuck with!

nonperson 28-01-2022 02:53 PM

Agreed. And Hot Patootie, those are the two songs that always get stuck in my head. Time Warp is a good driving song too. =P

I was walking down the street, just a'having a think, when a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 02:57 PM

Yes that one too! And sweet transvestite!

I'm watching snowpiercer the movie now.
I didn't know it was a movie until I watched the series!

nonperson 28-01-2022 03:02 PM

Oooh. I bet that's on something I can watch as well.

I'm in the middle of a work zoom thing. Everyone's taken a 10 minute break and I'm pretty sure I'm the only who has spent that time doing the time warp.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 03:04 PM

Amazon prime!

Haha!! Time well spent!

nonperson 28-01-2022 03:13 PM

Awesome, might check out the film then.

Luckily I'm not actually AT work otherwise it would be rather embarrassing.
