Oh no, stress is not good. Do you have safe ways to relax?

It would have to be the original pickled onion Monster Munch although the other flavours are yum too. I want the spicy ones now!

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 03:13 PM

Not really!
Just holding on to the last bit of sanity I have rn XD
Trying to anyway!

Would definitely have to be the original ones!
They're my favourite anyway!

nonperson 01-05-2022 03:14 PM

Yuck. Don't send Zurg pickled onion monster munch. That's not very kind!

Crumpets and pot noodle and Twiglets, Bourbons, custard creams, tunnocks tea cakes, pork scratchings, Penguins (I think Zurg would enjoy the jokes) aaaaand... Jaffa cakes!

nonperson 01-05-2022 03:15 PM

Ooh and scampi fries.

nonperson 01-05-2022 03:15 PM

If it has to be something pickled onion flavour it should be Space Raiders.

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 03:26 PM

Ahh i love space raiders!

I'm hungry after all those suggestions np!

nonperson 01-05-2022 04:54 PM

I don't like them either but feel they're more iconic. =P


Ooh, what about millions? Are they a British thing or just something that everyone filled their school blazer pockets with at my school?

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 04:57 PM

Those are great suggestions NP. My stomach has also rumbled in agreement.

Why would you fill your pockets with millions? You'd get a handful of whatever fluff etc that was also in your pockets when you go to eat them.

I don't know if they're a British thing.

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 04:59 PM

I totally forgot about millions.
They were awesome!
Not sure i ever put them in my blazer pockets though!

nonperson 01-05-2022 05:00 PM

I dunno - we were stupid kids? =P I think it was that someone used to buy a massive bag of them from the tuck shop and hand them out.

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 05:03 PM

So, I could get some of these things and others depending on if there's anything specific Kat wants to try then post them and if you have a bit of money to spare you could pay pal it to me once I find out the total cost? I'm happy to cover the cost myself if people don't have much.

Unless someone else wants to do the shopping and sending?

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 05:09 PM

Makes sense np!

More than happy to paypal you lindsay!

not_so_insig 01-05-2022 05:14 PM

I am happy to PayPal you Lindsay too.

nonperson 01-05-2022 05:15 PM

I will definitely paypal you, Lindsay. Are you ok with doing the shopping and sending?

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 05:58 PM

Yeah, once we create a final list I don't mind doing the shopping and sending.

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 06:03 PM

Ahh this will be so nice!

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 06:04 PM

We may have to cut down some of NPs excited things like a pot noodle depending on what size of box I have.

nonperson 01-05-2022 06:08 PM

Maybe supernoodles instead if they're smaller?

There's always going to be too much stuff to send. =P

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 06:11 PM

Hopefully Kat will let us know if there's anything specific she wants to try and we can add some things to that. Doesn't everywhere have quick cook noodles like pot noodles or supernoodles?

nonperson 01-05-2022 06:17 PM


nonperson 01-05-2022 08:31 PM

With a taste of your lips I'm on a ride...


*pulls out hair*

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 08:32 PM


I had that in my head yesterday when i watched pitch perfect 3

nonperson 01-05-2022 08:33 PM


I've just set the tv to remind me when Pitch Perfect starts on ITV2 tonight =o

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 08:46 PM

I saw that was on!

I'm waiting for the new episodes of the goldbergs. And hopefully I'll be awake long enough to see the new episodes of young sheldon too! I did last week

nonperson 01-05-2022 08:52 PM

It's just started. =)

I like the Goldbergs but have never watched it in order. I watched a couple of new episodes of Young Sheldon the other day too but think I might have missed the last series?

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 08:56 PM


I haven't watched the Goldbergs in order but i think I've seen every episode!
Don't know about young Sheldon. I haven't watched that many episodes!

nonperson 01-05-2022 09:06 PM

I just watch odd episodes of the Goldbergs but was following Young Sheldon in order. It's good! I like all the hints and links to the future Big Bang episodes. =P

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 09:09 PM

Yes me too!
It is very good!

nonperson 01-05-2022 09:22 PM

Did you know the actress who plays Sheldon's mum in Young Sheldon is the real life daughter of the actress who plays his mum in Big Bang Theory?

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 09:34 PM

No way!
That's awesome!

nonperson 01-05-2022 09:38 PM

I thought so too! And think it every time I see either of them. They are quite similar.

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 09:45 PM

They are!

I don't think I'll be able to stay up for young sheldon!
Will catch up tomorrow!

nonperson 01-05-2022 09:47 PM

Aw, something to look forward to tomorrow then.

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 09:51 PM

There's **** all on TV during the day anyway!

nonperson 01-05-2022 09:53 PM

Exactly. Doubt it will be different even though it's a bank holiday tomorrow.

Below Deck Mediterranean is starting again tomorrow though!

not_so_insig 01-05-2022 10:27 PM

I like watching classic Coronation Street which is on during the day. It's up to the year 2000 but I have been watching Coronation Street since 2001 so there will come a time when I remember the episodes.

nonperson 01-05-2022 11:06 PM

Luckily I usually only have to deal with daytime tv on weekends, bank holidays or when I'm on leave.

But there's always streaming as a backup!

tamobhuuta 02-05-2022 10:01 AM

Morning x

Cacoethes 02-05-2022 10:06 AM

I had a lie in this morning!
Slept until nearly 9!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 02-05-2022 11:07 AM

I got up early! It's my dad's birthday tomorrow so we're celebrating it today as well because of the bank holiday. How are you?

Cacoethes 02-05-2022 11:44 AM

Are you doing anything nice?

I'm ok thanks.
My neighbour is here cleaning!

one_step_closer 02-05-2022 03:53 PM

Afternoon. I got up at 1pm :-( I had an awful sleep and saw through to the day starting though. I just want to sort myself out. Messed up all my plans.

Did you enjoy your lie in Beckie? Is your neighbour away yet?

I hope you have a nice celebration with your Dad Tamo.

Cacoethes 02-05-2022 03:56 PM

Oh no lindsay :(
Nights like that are never fun

I did thanks!
And yes she's finished.
My house is now sparkly clean!

one_step_closer 02-05-2022 04:09 PM

I think I can see it sparkling from here. You better put some sunglasses on!

What have you been up to?

Cacoethes 02-05-2022 04:13 PM

Haha! I should! :p

Absolutely nothing.
Really should get out of the house at some point.
I am.going to a dance fitness class tomorrow evening though! Glow beatz. Used to go years ago. It's a lot of fun!

one_step_closer 02-05-2022 04:19 PM

That does sound like fun. I like the look of the one where you have drumsticks and do drumming movements and other movements with them.

Cacoethes 02-05-2022 04:26 PM

Yeah they look good too!
In glow beatz we have glow sticks!

one_step_closer 02-05-2022 06:06 PM

Does that mean the lights are down a bit? Exercise in semi darkness?

Cacoethes 02-05-2022 06:11 PM

Yep! No main lights, just disco lights!
But obviously it's light enough for you to see the instructor!

one_step_closer 02-05-2022 06:17 PM

Sounds good. There's nothing like that in my local leisure centres. Although if it involves dance moves I'd be rubbish.
