It's good so far!
And different enough to the series that I don't know what's going to happen!

Haha! Yeah
Me and a couple of staff were dancing to the wizards of waverly place theme song earlier!

one_step_closer 28-01-2022 03:54 PM

Have I entered a dance party or something?! I don't do dancing.

I signed up for an exercise program which might actually involve dancing though. Need to find some time to squeeze it in when my blinds are closed so no one sees me but that feels like too late to be exercising.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 04:07 PM

Haha! Well you should lindsay!
Stick the time warp on!

That sounds cool!

one_step_closer 28-01-2022 04:14 PM

Most of the workouts last for an hour I think. Will maybe have to build up to that.

Are you still watching the snowpiercer film?

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 04:19 PM

I used to do a lot of dance workouts.
They're great fun!

Yep! Only about 20 mins left
It's not actually like the series at all!

one_step_closer 28-01-2022 04:25 PM

It's kind of weird to have a series and a film is it not?

I'm glad it's not the same as the series so you aren't predicting what is going to happen.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 04:44 PM

Little bit! The film came out years before the series though. The last season of it only came out this month. The film is 2013 I think.

It was actually pretty much completely different!

nonperson 28-01-2022 05:32 PM

There are a few things I can think of that were films first before they were series - Buffy and Stargate. Probably loads more though.

I'm watching Harry Potter and doing Pottermore quizzes.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 05:43 PM

Yes I'm sure there were quite a few but couldn't think of any examples!

Great way to spend the evening! (Is ir evening or afternoon? Feels too late to be afternoon and too early to be evening, probably because it's dark!)

I'm watching iron man now!

nonperson 28-01-2022 05:48 PM

I think after 5 is considered evening? I'm not sure!

Iron Man is a good choice. =)

I'm basically swotting up for an online HP quiz me and my sister are doing tonight.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 05:52 PM

Sounds about right!
So nearly evening!

Oooh fun!

one_step_closer 28-01-2022 06:06 PM

That's what I thought about the evening. Happy Evening everyone!

I'm also Harry Pottering although not right now, I'm working through the books again because they're easy to read before bed.

Have you done an online HP quiz before NP? I hope you win!

I've never watched Iron Man. I don't watch films in general really. I take it you've watched it before Beckie?

nonperson 28-01-2022 06:26 PM

Happy Evening, Lindsay!

The HP books are good. So much more detail than the films, and yes, definitely easy reading, ideal for before bed.

We've done a few Harry Potter quizzes before. Some have been really good and challenging and others have been awful where the host clearly doesn't know anything about HP. We never win but we don't do badly. =P

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 06:26 PM

Harry potter 4 lyf!!!

I have seen it before but not for quite a while!

New tattoo idea? XD

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 06:34 PM

Don't tempt me XD

nonperson 28-01-2022 06:35 PM

Please don't. =|

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 06:38 PM

Ahahahhahaa!!! XD

one_step_closer 28-01-2022 06:46 PM

Oh no!

People keep thinking I'm a big fan of Harry Potter but I only actually like the books. I keep getting Harry Potter gifts.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 06:52 PM

I think if you say you like Harry potter everyone will automatically think you're a potterhead!

nonperson 28-01-2022 07:18 PM

That's very true.

Tbh there aren't many people that say they kinda like it but aren't that bothered. Or maybe those people are just too scared to speak up, lol

HP gifts are good though!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 07:25 PM

That's true!

Yes they are!
I'm looking for a random hp gift to get bestie!

nonperson 28-01-2022 10:31 PM

Scarf. Chocolate frog. House penant. Tie. Socks. Bertie Botts.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 10:47 PM

Pretty sure he's got all those!

nonperson 28-01-2022 11:03 PM

Uhm, prefect badge? Butterbeer? Pumpkin juice? 3D puzzle?

nonperson 28-01-2022 11:04 PM

You do need to have multiple chocolate frogs to collect the cards though.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 11:12 PM

I shall have a look!

Looks like the wait is going to be a while.
No one has been called in in about an hour!
So I have plenty of time to look for hp stuff!
A prefect badge is a cool idea!

nonperson 28-01-2022 11:25 PM

Ugh that sucks. Maybe there will be another rush of people going in soon. How long have you been waiting already?

I'm looking on the studio tour online shop at the moment. Might treat myself.

Or maybe a head boy pin? =P

The quiz was good! I think we did quite well. There were some really tricky questions though and we don't find out until tomorrow how well we did!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 11:27 PM

Maybe about 2 hours now?

Haha! It is always tempting!

Oooh yes he would LOVE a head boy pin!

Good! Always nice to be challenged!

nonperson 28-01-2022 11:36 PM

Fingers crossed you get seen soon.

I'm determined to buy the vintage Hufflepuff scarf the next time I go to the studio tour (hopefully halloween this year) because I've wanted one for ages and it looks more genuine than the actual Newt Scamander scarf. But I'm really craving a chocolate frog.

It is good to be challenged. I'm trying so hard not to google the answers though because I'm not very patient! Things like... which words have been entered into the official dictionary and what other creature can expecto patronum be used for and what film is this song from and which book has the least number of words and if you were scoring each house name in scrabble which one would have the highest score! Annoying!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 11:46 PM

Just had a latte from the machine.
Wasn't actually that bad! Lol
But G, one of the support workers would absolutely freak out if she knew I'd had coffee this late XD

ooooh do it!
Chocolate frogs are very good!

Those are pretty tough questions!

nonperson 29-01-2022 12:01 AM

Well you might need to be awake for a few hours yet so I don't think it's unreasonable to be having coffee.

Really tough questions, but at least it wasn't questions about minor characters and tiny tiny details. Can never remember those sorts of things.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:05 AM

Oh I'll be awake anyway!

Yeah that's true
I need to read the books again!

nonperson 29-01-2022 12:08 AM

It's amazing how many bits I've forgotten from the books because I've probably seen the films more now.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:12 AM

Me too!
I haven't read the books in many years!
Mum's reading jasmine the books now. Jasmine isn't much of a reader but she is enjoying the story! And is desperate to go to the studios!

nonperson 29-01-2022 12:31 AM

That must be really exciting to share that interest with her. =)

I always remember my mum reading books to me and my sister, like Charlotte's Web. It was nice. And the same at primary school when the teacher used to read to the class. That's when I got hooked on the Hobbit. I can't wait for my friend's kids to be old enough to read the HP books but they're a fair few years off though...

I'm really headachey and need to be up on time tomorrow so am gonna get to bed. Hope you're not at the hospital too long tonight. <3

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:42 AM

It is!

Aww that's so nice!
How old are your friends kids?

Hope you feel better tomorrow!
Good night! <3

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 04:50 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 29-01-2022 09:56 AM


They're 2 and a half and very nearly 5 years old. Few years to go maybe.

Came 13th place on the HP quiz. =)

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 11:10 AM

Ah yes. Few years to go!

Out of how many people?

tamobhuuta 29-01-2022 11:19 AM

Morning :)

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 11:28 AM

Hey tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 29-01-2022 12:21 PM

I'm ok thanks, how about you?

one_step_closer 29-01-2022 12:25 PM

Morning everyone, I hope your days go ok.

Is it just Scotland that has really high winds from last night carrying on today?

tamobhuuta 29-01-2022 12:28 PM

Hi osc, how are you?

It's breezy here, not really windy.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:33 PM

I'm not great!
I apparently have covid again (though I'm pretty sure I don't) so I'm confined to my room!
Which is annoying because I want coffee. I have asked like 3 people so far.
I also need to do laundry which I apparently can do but I don't know when.
Idk with these people!

Morning lindsay!
There was no wind when I was out last night/this morning

one_step_closer 29-01-2022 12:39 PM

The wind blew a bin onto the fence that I line them up at and broke it. Someones cans are blowing all over my garden and my neighbours garden and I beat they'll blame it on me but I don't drink from cans.

Sorry you've got covid again Beckie. How long do you need to say in your room? I hope you don't get horrible symptoms and people step up to get what you need e.g coffee etc.

I don't know how I am really. Low. Hopeless.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:42 PM

Oh no!
Hate it when bin disasters happen!

Thank you!
I'm not actually sure how long I need to stay in here! Until I get a negative test I suppose.
So far I have felt totally fine! Still better than ever!
I've asked 3 people for coffee so far and the 4th one has just gone to get me one. I feel like such a bother!
I have to have my vitals done 4 times a day :eyeroll:

I'm sorry to hear that lindsay
Anything I can do?

one_step_closer 29-01-2022 12:47 PM

You're not a bother you're obeying the rules and the staff need to be looking after you just as much as the other patients. Maybe you can have a coffee ever time they do your vitals to make it two trips squashed into one!

I don't think anyone can do anything but thanks for asking.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:52 PM

That's a good idea!
I have just got a coffee :)

Ok. If there's anything then let me know!
