Cacoethes 04-07-2021 07:17 PM

Good luck!
You can do it!

tamobhuuta 04-07-2021 08:42 PM

Well done Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 08:47 PM

Thanks tamo!

How's your day been?

tamobhuuta 04-07-2021 09:10 PM

It was fun. L and I watched Raya and the last dragon.

Cacoethes 04-07-2021 09:13 PM

I've been meaning to watch that. Is it good?

nonperson 04-07-2021 10:01 PM

Ooh that's on my watchlist too!

I'm mostly done with cleaning. Still need to hoover the stairs and clean a patch of floor behind the cat tower but that's it really. There are still cobwebs all over the ceilings though, I hope the electricians won't be tall...

nonperson 05-07-2021 10:07 AM

Morning all.

The electrician turned up three hours early...!

Good luck with the job interview today, Beckie!

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 10:37 AM

Morning np!
Well done for doing all that cleaning!

Three hours early?!

Thank you! I'm nervous!

nonperson 05-07-2021 10:50 AM

We’ll he actually turned up at 8am and then people spent an hour trying to get hold of me. I’d booked a half day leave from 11:45 because he said 12! So my half day is now until 1pm and I have to go back to work after. Weird day!

Good news is that my work phone actually has mobile signal at home so I’m not cut off from the world after all.

When’s the interview? You’ll be fine. It’s just a friendly chat =)

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 11:02 AM

That is strange!

Yay that's good!

He said any time after 2 so I'm going to leave the house at 2. It's only a 10 minute walk.
Thanks :)

Elmer 05-07-2021 11:19 AM

Good luck Beckie :)

I hope it’s not too awkward with the electrician np.

I’m watching Grey’s Anatomy (big surprise) and waiting for the pharmacy to text me that my prescription is ready.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 11:21 AM

Thank you :)

How far into it are you Lio?

tamobhuuta 05-07-2021 11:25 AM

Cacoethes and np, it is really good :)

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 11:28 AM

Hey tamo
I may have to watch it soon then!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-07-2021 11:32 AM

Quite dozy due to 2 PRNs yesterday. Good luck for your interview.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 11:34 AM

Can you rest today?

Thank you :)

Elmer 05-07-2021 11:37 AM

I’m on season 11, I’m going to be very sad when I have to wait a week between episodes!

I hope the PRNs helped tamobhuuta.

My cat says hi. He is stretched out between me and the laptop because he knows that’s the way to get my attention.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 11:41 AM

I know the pain!
I binged all of handmaid's tale and now I have to wait a week between episodes! And with Loki as well!

Awww cute!

tamobhuuta 05-07-2021 12:13 PM

I will be sad when Desperate Wives runs out.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 12:18 PM

How many seasons of that is there?

nonperson 05-07-2021 12:21 PM

I need to watch Loki!

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 12:22 PM

Yes you do!
It's sooo good!

tamobhuuta 05-07-2021 12:29 PM

BTW Cacoethes I would advise you to turn up at 2pm, it shows you're keen.

tamobhuuta 05-07-2021 12:30 PM

There are 8 series of DH.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 12:32 PM

That's a good idea actually tamo!

What series are you on?

not_so_insig 05-07-2021 12:46 PM

Morning all.

nonperson 05-07-2021 12:54 PM

That's a really good idea Tamo.

Morning Dawn.

Electrician man is all done and I'm back on WiFi again *clings to the internet like a sad lonely fool* XD

not_so_insig 05-07-2021 12:59 PM

That's good nonperson. I dont get a good signal where I am only 1 bar and I cant change network so I get annoyed when my WiFi is down.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 12:59 PM

Morning Dawn

Yay np!
I don't know what I'd do without the Internet

not_so_insig 05-07-2021 01:29 PM

Well we wouldn't be here if the Internet hadn't been invented.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 01:50 PM


nonperson 05-07-2021 01:58 PM

Yeah I think I'd be a very different person if I hadn't grown up with the internet...

Why can't you change, Dawn?

In theory I suppose I could change back to Vodafone now that there's a mast here. I went with Three because they did both calls and texts via wifi calling and super cheap and good for roaming when I went to America but in a powercut it means I'm completely cut off! Hmm. Something to ponder now that I know the Vodafone mast works.

nonperson 05-07-2021 02:02 PM

And godfrickindammit I can't believe I need to be back at work in half an hour! Stupid electrician coming early has really messed up my day. Not really, just taking a half days leave in the middle of the day is really strange.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 02:02 PM

I'm on Vodafone!
Might be worth changing

That's so annoying np!
That would throw me off too!

nonperson 05-07-2021 02:13 PM

I used to be on Vodafone but the Sure Signal device thingy to get signal in the house was so awful I changed.

Better go.

Will send you good vibes for 2pm ;-)

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 02:16 PM

Have fun!

Thank you!

one_step_closer 05-07-2021 02:33 PM

Good luck Beckie, go and show them how amazing you are!

Wifi is a need. It should be in Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs but bluntly there, not hidden inside a general thing.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 02:35 PM

Thanks lindsay!

I completely agree!

not_so_insig 05-07-2021 02:47 PM

I cant change because only one network works in my parents house due to it being rural. So basically I need to be contactable in their house especially over Christmas. I cant just go outside as it makes no difference.

one_step_closer 05-07-2021 02:49 PM

I've been with Talk Talk for as long as I remember, they keep tricking me to stay with them.

one_step_closer 05-07-2021 02:50 PM

I was tricked into changing my energy supplier too and when I did I lost my warm home discount because it was attached to my previous supplier.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 02:54 PM

That's rubbish!
These companies can be so sneaky

one_step_closer 05-07-2021 02:57 PM

You can't go anywhere without bumping into them. The last people came to my house which I wasn't expecting.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 03:29 PM

That seems a bit odd!

I've had my interview!
It was very speedy. He said he has a few more people to see and he'll let me know tomorrow or Wednesday.
Hopefully the other people don't have pub experience so I'm in with a chance!

tamobhuuta 05-07-2021 03:45 PM

That's great :)

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 03:48 PM

Fingers crossed!

How's your day going tamo?

tamobhuuta 05-07-2021 03:58 PM

It's ok thanks, nice and quiet.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 04:03 PM

That's good :)

one_step_closer 05-07-2021 04:43 PM

I'll have my brain fingers crossed for you Beckie.

Cacoethes 05-07-2021 05:01 PM

Thank you lindsay!
