I have been asleep all day....

one_step_closer 09-12-2018 04:23 PM

Welcome To The World Of The Awake! (RYL stole my caps).

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 04:28 PM

Haha! Thanks!

zombiehunter 09-12-2018 04:42 PM

home alone is on at 4:50

chinahorse 09-12-2018 04:43 PM

I've never seen that zombie!

one_step_closer 09-12-2018 04:45 PM

OMG Home Alone is the best! (It's the Christmas one right, not one of the others?)

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 04:49 PM

Not a huge fan of it myself!

zombiehunter 09-12-2018 04:49 PM

yes it's the PROPER one

one_step_closer 09-12-2018 04:52 PM

Looks like I might not get a lot done tonight.

one_step_closer 09-12-2018 06:31 PM

I didn't last long with Home Alone, I'm not good at deviating from my evening routine or watching films.

What's everyone up to?

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 06:33 PM

I have just done some wrapping!

one_step_closer 09-12-2018 06:35 PM

Did you get it all finished or will you have more to do another day?

nonperson 09-12-2018 06:43 PM

How can you be doing wrapping already?!

I haven't even bought any presents yet... >.<

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 06:48 PM

I got it all done but have more presents to buy!

Christmas is drawing nearer np!!

nonperson 09-12-2018 07:00 PM

I know. I have two weeks to get presents sorted. x.x

not_so_insig 09-12-2018 07:03 PM

I bought a cat themed Christmas bauble today.

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 07:04 PM

It'll creep up fast!

Sounds cool dawn!

nonperson 09-12-2018 07:08 PM

I find buying presents so difficult. =(

Cat bauble sounds great. =)

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 07:22 PM

It can be difficult!
I only have one brother to buy something for now but he's being annoying and doesn't know what he wants.
And got a present on the way for another brother who had some odd requests this year: a stein, a framed picture of an octopus in a top hat or an inflatable dinosaur. He is 25.

nonperson 09-12-2018 07:32 PM

They are very odd requests..!

I haven't got any requests to go on so just having to use my own judgement and it's so hard.

Hate this time of year... =( Sorry, I'm such a Scrooge.

chinahorse 09-12-2018 07:34 PM

It is hard to choose for men especially.

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 07:35 PM

He is rather odd in general
He once pulled up in his friend's car, ran into my house, grabbed a spoon, yelled 'no time to explain!', jumped back in his friends car and drove off....
Never found out what that was about

I never used to like this time of year but since having Jasmine its been different because I love how excited she gets about it all.

You're right Lillie, men are very hard to buy for!

nonperson 09-12-2018 07:37 PM

Haha, amazing! Maybe it was an icecream emergency?

I find shopping for my friend's daughter the easiest to do!

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 07:38 PM


Kids are easy to buy for.
They tend to be quite easily pleased!

nonperson 09-12-2018 08:05 PM

I enjoy kids toys much more than I should. =P So I just buy stuff I'd like to play with!

Last year was Mexican maracas that I couldn't seem to turn off... so they kept going "Ariba!" and playing little tunes while wrapped up, hehe.

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 08:08 PM

Bet the parent loved that! :p

nonperson 09-12-2018 08:12 PM

Yep =) And they had to drive all the way down to Cornwall before opening the presents too... I think it might have gone off a few times in the car on the way. >.>

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 08:13 PM

That would drive me bonkers!!

nonperson 09-12-2018 08:20 PM

That's the benefit of gifting things to other people's children. =P

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 08:22 PM

True!! :p

nonperson 09-12-2018 08:44 PM

Mmm, pizza.

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 08:45 PM

Oo you have pizza?

nonperson 09-12-2018 08:46 PM

I did. Not any more. >.>

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 08:48 PM

What was on it?

nonperson 09-12-2018 08:50 PM

Pepperoni. And it was extra healthy because I added salad to it.

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 08:52 PM

And yes, adding salad to things immediately makes it healthy

nonperson 09-12-2018 08:56 PM

It had this magical effect of counteracting the huge dollop of mayonnaise too. =)

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 08:58 PM

I love mayo
I can't buy it because otherwise I'd have it with everything!

nonperson 09-12-2018 09:00 PM

That's my problem too... except I have no willpower to not buy it. =/

Cacoethes 09-12-2018 09:13 PM

Oh dear!
I just don't go down that aisle at all

chinahorse 10-12-2018 07:31 AM

Morning guys :)

Cat owners out there what's a good flea and wormer? A delightfull topic for a morning :-P

not_so_insig 10-12-2018 10:42 AM

I use frontline and drontal. Both can be bought online without the need for a prescription which means that it is cheaper than the vets.

Cacoethes 10-12-2018 01:35 PM

Hello everyone!

not_so_insig 10-12-2018 03:59 PM

Afternoon all

one_step_closer 10-12-2018 04:12 PM


Lillie, don't use Bob Martin stuff whatever you do. Is a kitty with you yet?

How are you all?

Cacoethes 10-12-2018 04:14 PM

Hey guys

How are you?

not_so_insig 10-12-2018 04:15 PM

I am ok thanks. I am hopefully having gingerbread latte tomorrow and I have my Christmas meal with my friend on Thursday.

Cacoethes 10-12-2018 04:18 PM

I love gingerbread lattes.

I've been to the nurse today to get my 24 hour blood pressure thing set up.
Also posted something I've wanted to post for like a week and been to asda.

not_so_insig 10-12-2018 04:22 PM

Well done for posting the parcel. I have something to post for Lorraine but I have to find a large envelope first.

Cacoethes 10-12-2018 04:23 PM


Have you heard from Lorraine recently?
I miss her!
