I've not noticed any good TV until today to be honest!

Temple of Doom is very good though.

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 08:11 PM

There's been a few good films on here and there

It is indeed!

Are you watching anything good?

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 08:25 PM

Noooo Betty White has died! :'(

not_so_insig 31-12-2021 08:26 PM

I watched totp new year special before but fast forwarded 2 songs because they were crap. Music these days is a bit samey with the exception of Ed Sheeran.

nonperson 31-12-2021 08:30 PM

I'm just watching the end of Mrs Doubtfire. About to put pizza in the oven.

I think that's a bit of a sweeping statement there, Dawn. Music is subjective! I could easily call Ed Sheeran samey.

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 08:36 PM

Ed Sheeran is definitely samey

nonperson 31-12-2021 08:40 PM

But annoyingly likeable!

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 08:50 PM

Yeah he seems like a decent enough guy

nonperson 31-12-2021 09:18 PM

I meant the music but yep, that too.

His eyes freak me out a bit.

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 09:20 PM

I'm not a fan of his music
Especially because 'Bad Habits' was on repeat on the work playlist for days on end and I just couldn't deal with him anymore after that!

nonperson 31-12-2021 09:58 PM

Yup that'll ruin any good song.

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 10:03 PM


The last leg is on now
I always end up watching it on new years eve!
Except last year because I was in hospital and new year sucked

I anticipate getting lots of drunk messages/photos in the work group chat tonight!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 01:32 AM

Happy New Year everyone!!!!

nonperson 01-01-2022 01:37 AM

Happy New Year.

I fell asleep and missed all the TV and fireworks...

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 01:39 AM

Oh no!

I'm going to sleep now.
But I'm sure I will be continuously woken up into the early hours with drunk texts and pics from the work group chat

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 09:55 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 01-01-2022 10:12 AM


How're you?

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 10:23 AM

I'm ok thanks!


nonperson 01-01-2022 01:01 PM

Glad you're ok. Did you have many rowdy messages in the work chat?

I've been awake since 4am and am stressing about whether I need to get Geordi to the vet today or not... so not great.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 01:14 PM

Yes. Many.
Including many pictures of colleagues passed out on the floor/on tables! Including big boss!

Oh no :(
I hope Geordi is ok

nonperson 01-01-2022 01:41 PM

Nice... O.o I don't get why people find that sort of thing funny or to be proud about...

I've just booked a video consultation with the free vet thing I get with his insurance. Absolutely shitting myself, never done a video consult before. My vets are closed today and I dunno if it's an emergency so I don't want to ring them and get in the way of a real emergency.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 01:46 PM

They are all young uns. They will learn!
Well, I think big boss is actually older than me...and he has 3 young children and a wife who live above the pub!
Must have been difficult for them to sleep last night!

Poor Geordi..
I hope it's nothing serious

nonperson 01-01-2022 01:55 PM

I bet they're used to the noise.

Nah I don't think it's anything serious, he's had this same bum gland infection before but I don't want to leave it until tomorrow and have it burst again!

5 mins until the call.......

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 02:00 PM


Bless him.
Can't be nice

nonperson 01-01-2022 02:10 PM

Well that was an experience. I never thought I'd ever have to be showing my cat's bum hole to a person on video call...

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 02:15 PM

Well that's....interesting!

nonperson 01-01-2022 02:24 PM

I know right! We didn't manage it because I couldn't get him to stay still once handed or enough light to his back end. Gonna have to go to the normal vet when they open tomorrow I think.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 02:30 PM

Hopefully he'll be ok until then.
I'm sure if he's had it before and been ok then he'll be fine

tamobhuuta 01-01-2022 02:33 PM

Hi people :)

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 02:38 PM

Hey tamo
How are you?

one_step_closer 01-01-2022 02:39 PM

Afternoon everyone. I really hope you have a great new year.

I hope Geordi is ok NP. I freaked out when one of Crookshanks's anal glands burst and because I didn't know what it was I took him to the emergency vet. Everything always happens when my normal vet is closed.

Sounds like your colleagues had fun Beckie! I prefer your night in, though I know you didn't have a choice.

Hi Tamo, how are you?

tamobhuuta 01-01-2022 02:40 PM

I'm ok thanks. I went to Confession which was a relief. What are you up to?

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 02:49 PM

Looks like they definitely had fun!
Yeah my night was ok.
Could have done with some company though!
It's mainly today that I'm gutted about missing.
The pub is closing early so staff can have a little party.

Glad you're ok tamo!

I'm watching hotel transylvania 3!

tamobhuuta 01-01-2022 04:45 PM

Is it good?

nonperson 01-01-2022 04:54 PM

Are they going to want to party after last night's antics?!

I liked Hotel Transylvania 1. Did not know there was a 2 and 3!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 05:07 PM

Yes it was quite good!

Haha! They're always up for a party!

How did you not know?!

one_step_closer 01-01-2022 05:41 PM

From what I maybe remember I've only watched the first Hotel Transylvania and didn't like it much.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 05:50 PM

Fair enough!

I'm watching ice age collision course now
Not actually seen this one!

nonperson 01-01-2022 06:38 PM

Don't think I have either.

I'm watching Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 06:42 PM

Oooh I forgot that was on!
It's on after this. I'm on +1

tamobhuuta 01-01-2022 06:44 PM

I'm watching Waterloo Road. Been having a binge.

nonperson 01-01-2022 06:44 PM

Cool. Not long until it starts then.

nonperson 01-01-2022 06:44 PM

Ninja Tamo. TV binges are good!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 06:48 PM

I used to love Waterloo road!

Nope! The news is on first so I'm going to go for a quick shower and get into some nice fresh PJs!

nonperson 01-01-2022 07:00 PM

Ohh boo for the news! But a good opportunity to get clean.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 07:07 PM

I am clean!
It's about time as well. Haven't showered in about a week!
There just doesn't seem like much point as I can't leave the house!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 07:11 PM

Oooh there's a special episode of taskmaster on tonight!

nonperson 01-01-2022 07:25 PM

It's nice to be clean for your own personal pride though isn't it?

I like being clean. Definitely could not go for a week without showering....

Does it have new contestants on it?

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 07:28 PM

Yes that is true!
I do feel a lot better for it

Yes it does!
Adrian Chiles, Claudia Winkleman, Johnnie Peacock and others I can't remember

nonperson 01-01-2022 07:31 PM

Interesting mix!
