Hello everyone!

I have bought all the presents. Just waiting on a couple to arrive!

shadow-light 17-12-2021 07:53 PM

how are people doing today? AAnyone got any weekend plans?

I am in a properly bad mood so looking for something to disract my brainbefore it spirals but music/TV are not helping becauase zero concentration levels :laugh: really wish my treadmil wasn't dead as that usually gets rid of the restlessness

also... seriously how the hell is it the end of 2021 already?

Cacoethes 17-12-2021 08:08 PM

I'm going to see Jasmine tomorrow :)

Sorry to hear you're in a bad mood
I wish I had something helpful to suggest!

I know!

nonperson 17-12-2021 08:15 PM

My grand total is three presents and that's all I need to buy, thankfully.

What about silly stuff on YouTube, Hazel? TV/cartoon theme tunes from childhood sometimes cheer me up.

No weekend plans here other than a food shop and the Strictly final.

How was work, Beckie?

Cacoethes 17-12-2021 08:23 PM

Work was ok thanks!
Very busy!
It is a Friday after all!

How was your day?

shadow-light 17-12-2021 08:23 PM

we went food shopping today, to say it's the last weekend before christmas it was suprisingly quiet

might have a look on youtube, or might go see if any of my games of steam appeal. Had the worlds shortest cry and feel slightly better :laugh:

nonperson 17-12-2021 08:45 PM

I have also had a little cry! It does help.

Glad work was ok, Beckie. I bet it's ramping up towards Christmas now?

My day was surprisingly ok. I was doing something different with different people in a slightly different place - planting a load of trees - and it was a lot more enjoyable that I thought it would be.

Cacoethes 17-12-2021 09:24 PM

Crying can be cathartic!

It really is!
We had well over 100 people booked into the restaurant for lunch today, and the bar was full! Double that amount of people were booked in for tonight! Plus the walk ins obviously.

That's good to hear!

not_so_insig 17-12-2021 10:08 PM

My weekend plans involve watching horses on the telly.

not_so_insig 18-12-2021 09:44 AM

Morning all! I am awake because my parcel from Lorraine arrived today. At 8.15 am! Unfortunately I was asleep at the time so the knocking woke me up. I have a cat next to me.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 09:47 AM

I hate early parcels!
Though I'm usually awake when they come anyway!

I've had a shower this morning

nonperson 18-12-2021 11:17 AM

Morning all.

Early parcels do suck. I've got Hermes delivering between 2 and 4 this afternoon.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 11:41 AM

Oh no not hermes!
They put my parcel ON TOP of my bins last time.
Not even behind them!
In full view of the road!
Most of the time they don't even knock.
My old hermes courier was much better

tamobhuuta 18-12-2021 11:42 AM

My mum works with a company called Hermes and they're always getting phone calls from people angry about non-deliveries.

not_so_insig 18-12-2021 12:03 PM

Lots of horsey action on the telly tonight and for the next 3 days. Can't wait!

I fell back asleep but the postman woke me up.

nonperson 18-12-2021 12:04 PM

You'd think they would have chosen a different name, lol

Hermes are usually ok for me.

not_so_insig 18-12-2021 12:22 PM

Hermes are ok for me too.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 12:22 PM

Lol tamo!
That must get annoying!

My parcel was 60 toilet rolls so it would be something people would steal as well
Thank goodness we're not still in the great toilet paper crisis!

tamobhuuta 18-12-2021 01:36 PM

I had a shower, go me!

one_step_closer 18-12-2021 03:17 PM

So many people getting parcels. I don't think I'm waiting on any.

Well done Tamo. :-)

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 03:48 PM

Well done tamo!

I'm waiting on 2 tomorrow!
Then 2 more at some point next week

nonperson 18-12-2021 06:44 PM

Evening all.

What should I put on my shopping list? And when should I go? =/


Cacoethes 18-12-2021 07:36 PM

What sorts of things have you already got?
Go now! I always find it's best if you don't think about it and just go!

I'm back home!

nonperson 18-12-2021 07:42 PM

Did you have a nice day?

I've decided on chilli con carne, that'll feed me easily for a few days... and the usual weekly basics for lunch and snacks and stuff. I'm gonna go in a sec... >.< and then I can watch Strictly when I get back. *deep breath*

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 07:54 PM

Yes thanks :)
We played super smash bros on the switch and then watched Christmas chronicles 2
We're going to go and see Clifford the big red dog in the cinema on Thursday! Then go to McDonald's

You can do it!
May the force be with you!

nonperson 18-12-2021 08:13 PM

Ooh that's sounds like a nice plan.

It's weirdly empty in the car park!

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 08:26 PM

Yep! Should be good!

It was pretty empty in asda too
Just a lot of very slow people stopping in front of me :plain:

shadow-light 18-12-2021 08:37 PM

Oh I HATE it when people just stop in front of you! Honestly humans need break lights

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 08:45 PM

They really do!!!
SO annoying!

shadow-light 18-12-2021 08:59 PM

Indicators too

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 09:02 PM

Especially in London!

nonperson 18-12-2021 09:23 PM

I'm probably one of those people who get in the way and change direction without warning =/

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 09:31 PM

Oh no!
I liked you as well :tongue2:

nonperson 18-12-2021 09:47 PM

Well it's unlikely I'll ever get in your way so you can continue to like me!

(Please? XD)

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 09:52 PM

That's true.
I shall continue to like you :tongue2:

nonperson 18-12-2021 09:54 PM

Thank goodness.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:06 PM

I could never dislike you np!

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:10 PM

Aw. :blush: I'm all embarrassed now.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:13 PM

I just think we get on rather well!

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:16 PM

We do. Similar interests I suppose and often bored and looking for silly conversation in this thread =P

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:19 PM


My future sister in law has just announced the engagement on Facebook! I'm so excited! My brother is the first of us to get married. Or indeed have a long term partner!

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:21 PM

Do they have a date yet for the wedding?

I only have one sister and she's already married so that's all over and done with, lol.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:29 PM

I don't think so.
But she loves weddings so it will be well planned!

There's 5 of us! One brother has a girlfriend who is completely out of his league (she is a legit model. Just got a new contract in new york)
Other brother has never been bothered with relationships and my sister is only 17 but has a boyfriend. She'll probably get married to someone when she's older. She has her life properly sorted out!
And then there's me. Asexual and aromantic. Lol!

Jasmine asked me if I had a boyfriend and I said no. She asked why and I said 'boys are icky'
And she said 'legit'

shadow-light 18-12-2021 10:32 PM

I have 2 half brothers, but I can't see the older of the two ever getting married and I'm not really in contact with the other. So I'm safe from sibling weddings :tongue2:

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:33 PM

Everyone's different! And boys are absolutely legit icky.

I totally read that as aromatic btw.

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:35 PM

Hey Hazel. That's lucky! One sibling wedding was enough for me. =P

I'll probably be the spinster cat lady sibling who never gets married.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:36 PM

Lol Hazel!
I actually love weddings!

They totally are np

Haha! I always read it as aromatic first :p

I would be a crazy cat/dog lady if I were allowed pets

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:38 PM

I forgot I've actually been to three weddings =o The ex's brother's (really boring), my uncle's (seagull stole my battered sausage in Brighton and my smart shoes fell apart while I was wearing them) and my sister's in Las Vegas!

Here's a question: if you really were aromatic what spice would you smell like?

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:43 PM

I remember you posting about the Vegas one! I was very jealous!

I've been to one wedding!
My cousin. Well, my step dad's cousin but we've always grown up with calling them our cousins because they're closer to my age. And they're a lot of fun!
The wedding was insane. 4 string quartet, 3 course meal, posh church and hotel, hog roast later on, photo booth, photographers, videographers and a DJ!
It was great fun

I'm not actually very familiar with spices!
So I don't know!
What about you?

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:47 PM

Yeah Vegas was a life event/massive holiday not just a wedding. =)

Whoa that sounds immense.

I'd be cinnamon. Cinnamon bagel, cinnamon apple crumble, cinnamon doughtnuts...!
