I do manage to mostly focus on Handmaid's tale. It's the only thing I've watched recently that makes me freak out when it's left on a cliffhanger! I'm usually not bothered!

I watched rise and am now watching the 2001 tim Burton planet of the apes. Which is widely hated but we had it on video as kids I think so it's a nostalgia thing. Like how star wars fans all hate phantom menace but me and the siblings like it because it was the only one we had on video!

Sorry to hear you're not well dawn.
Hope you feel better soon!
Everyone is getting ill right now!

Oh same, I just have it in the background - sometimes just nonsense.

Did you find the Handmaid's tale to be good? Sort of trying to find a better way to say it (good = liked when good can mean = thought provoking)

I'm sorry some of you aren't feeling well - I hope you will recover soon - I know it all too well.

Also have you watched the stupid video on the stupid app when you scan the new stupid stamps???

Because I use 2 x 1st class stamps for Postcrossing when sending overseas. If I were to use 2nd class stamps then I would have to use more than 2 stamps meaning that due to their size it would take up even more room on the card and therefore less room for a message. I only have standard sized postcards.

Morning all. Looks like I beat Beckie

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 09:23 AM


Zurg 05-12-2022 10:14 AM

Morning :)

How is everyone?

I'm broke, my back aches and i am out of coffee. Waiting to wake up from this terrible nightmare….

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 10:24 AM

No coffee???
I am also out of coffee.

not_so_insig 05-12-2022 11:10 AM

It's freezing here. It's only 4 degrees here atm. Hope you're feeling warm.

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 11:11 AM

6 here.
Just about to go and get my nails done!

not_so_insig 05-12-2022 11:30 AM

Oooh nice Beckie. I am hopefully going out too.

tamobhuuta 05-12-2022 11:41 AM

Hi guys.
Sorry about your start to the day Zurg.
I hope you enjoy getting your nails done Cacoethes.
Where are you off to insig?
I've got my colouring stuff out but I'm not sure I actually want to do colouring. But I need to do something while my PRN kicks in.

Zurg 05-12-2022 12:18 PM

It's cold here too. Around 2 or 3 degrees i think…. I'm freezing even inside and with the heating on.

Hope your nails Will turn out all fabulous, Beckie!!!

Do you like listening to music, Tamo?? Maybe that would feel a bit easier and more relaxing than colouring??

What are you up to today, Dawn??

one_step_closer 05-12-2022 12:19 PM

Morning everyone.

I'm sorry things aren't great for you right now, Kat. *sends love*

Are you going to get coffee when you're out, Beckie? Do you have an idea of what you want your nails to be like? I demand photos!

Are you feeling better today, Dawn?

I hope the PRN kicks in soon, Tamo. Keep doing the safe things.

one_step_closer 05-12-2022 12:19 PM

Ninja Kat!

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 01:27 PM

My nails are indeed fabulous!
Very Christmassy!

House inspection has been cancelled as their car has broken down. So they now don't have time to come until the new year! Which is fine!

I need to go to asda to get coffee but cba because it's cold and raining XD

tamobhuuta 05-12-2022 01:58 PM

Yes, I listened to music instead! I had a good visit with my dad and sister but she did get very stressed and upset. Maybe today wasn't a good day for her to come. Once she calmed down though she was friendly and chatty.

Lunch time now.

not_so_insig 05-12-2022 02:46 PM

I am feeling slightly better thanks. Managed to do a bus journey and a taxi ride back without being ill.

one_step_closer 05-12-2022 03:13 PM

I thought you might have got coffee when you were already out getting your nails done, Beckie.

I'm glad you had a nice visit although your sister was upset to begin with, Tamo. What did you have for lunch?

That's good, Dawn. Were you out for anything specific?

tamobhuuta 05-12-2022 03:35 PM

I had a very chocolatey cereal bar. How are you?

not_so_insig 05-12-2022 03:44 PM

Yes I was out for something specific. Dont want to say what as I have to tell my parents first and I dont want it going on Facebook just yet.

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 03:59 PM

My nail lady has her studio in a cabin in her back garden! So it's just on a residential road. No coffee shops nearby unfortunately!

Have been to the vets and the boys are in perfect health! Always good to hear!

not_so_insig 05-12-2022 04:11 PM

Aww that's good news Beckie.

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 04:18 PM

Yep! I'm very proud of my boys :)

Zurg 05-12-2022 04:54 PM

Time for lots of treats and cuddles to Merry and Pippin!!!!

I'm glad you had a nice visit, Tamo <3
Sometimes it can be difficult for people who are visiting. But it's nice to have their company to look forward to!!

Yay for getting out and about without getting sick, Dawn :D

I have coffee now, Lindsay!!! The crisis has been handled!!! For now….
I am hungry and want to cook dinner. But i am also tired and sitting in my very comfy couch. Such a dilemma….

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 05:16 PM

Oh yes they got lots of treats!
The vet asked me if they sneeze a lot and suddenly my brain went completely blank and couldn't remember! It did come back to me eventually but I must have looked like an idiot XD

Yay for coffee!

one_step_closer 05-12-2022 05:48 PM

I'll let you away with having a cereal bar for lunch since it was very chocolatey, Tamo!

You're obviously looking after your fluffies really well, Beckie. I'm glad the vet visit went well.

I'm glad you now have coffee, Kat. That sounds like you're willingly being held hostage by your couch. You must get up and make something tasty to eat.

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 05:52 PM

I hope so!

Are you feeling any better lindsay?

one_step_closer 05-12-2022 06:07 PM

I am feeling a lot better thanks. Still not fully well, just trying to rest this week and then get on with my usual routine next week.

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 06:09 PM

Good plan!
Always good to rest if you can!

one_step_closer 05-12-2022 06:11 PM

I just want to be fully better to go to the chemist because someone who works there has a grandson who has leukaemia so I don't want to pass anything on to her.

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 06:13 PM

Fair enough!

Someone on the work group chat has asked someone to bring in milk, so now I'm just getting notifications of people posting milk related gifs...

one_step_closer 05-12-2022 06:15 PM

Your workies sound like a fun bunch!

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 06:27 PM

No one has actually agreed to bring in milk...it's just gifs..
They are a fun lot!
It is slightly annoying waking up to a million pics/gifs when they have a night out though! Lol!
But I'd rather that than work with fun sponges!

nonperson 05-12-2022 07:01 PM

I absolutely need to implement the term "fun sponge" at my work.

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 07:14 PM

It is one of my favourite phrases!

Whhhyy do I only get food cravings at home?? And never when I'm actually in a shop where I can get the thing!!
So irritating!

Zurg 05-12-2022 07:26 PM

I had hoped that getting some coffee might make me all mellow and nice-ish. But it didn't. I've been in a pissed off mood for several weeks. I can't contain it safely anymore so i am starting to be annoying to people who are rude. I've blasted Rammstein on full volume for my upstairs neighbour twice today. She's been an inconsiderate knobhead the past year, playing her tv and music on full volume every bloody day for a minimum of 9 hours a day. I tried being nice and slipped her a note about half Way through the year. But you know, some people might not read too Well if they don't hear too Well…..

I hate people!!! This is why i want my own island. Just me and my zoo. Surrounded by shark infested waters.

Zurg pms- it's like ordinary pms, but it never stops!!!! >:(

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 07:30 PM

Tbf, i think rude people deserve it!
That does sound super annoying and I'd do the same if I had noisy neighbours!

Zurg 05-12-2022 09:30 PM

I am a master of passive aggressive.
And i throw a good punch too in case that is required. But fortunately it isn't very often. If i punch someone i'll be sectioned faster than i can say ‘harh!! Take THAT you scallywag!!!'

…. Maybe some day, a situation Will appear that Will make it worth it, anyway ;)

Cacoethes 05-12-2022 10:03 PM

I used to get into fights loads!
But I calmed down lots when I had jasmine. Like when you get aggressive mares to have foals to chill them out. It worked! XD
though i did get into a fight last time i was in hospital. Lol

Cacoethes 06-12-2022 07:20 AM


tamobhuuta 06-12-2022 12:09 PM

Morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 06-12-2022 12:14 PM

I'm ok.
Just pulling into Norwich.
Dad's funeral today

one_step_closer 06-12-2022 01:06 PM

Aww I just missed the morning, afternoon everyone.

I hope the funeral goes well, Beckie and you're accepting of anything you might feel or not feel. Take care of yourself. We're here to chat afterwards (or on other boards) if you need to get things off your chest.

How are you, Tamo?

Cacoethes 06-12-2022 01:21 PM

Thank you!
At nanny's now. Brothers and sis in law just arrived so we're gonna head off soon!

one_step_closer 06-12-2022 01:23 PM

Are you doing something afterwards?

tamobhuuta 06-12-2022 01:28 PM

Cacoethes- what osc said.

How are you osc?

one_step_closer 06-12-2022 01:31 PM

I'm ok-ish.

How is your day going Tamo?

tamobhuuta 06-12-2022 01:33 PM

It's ok. My dad came to see me which was nice and now I'm waiting for ward rounds. Are you doing anything today?

one_step_closer 06-12-2022 01:37 PM

I hope your ward round goes well. I'm glad you had a nice visit.

I just washed my hair and have nothing else to do except reply to a pen pal letter but I'll see how I feel.

one_step_closer 06-12-2022 01:38 PM

We're the only two members on RYL right now, Tamo. What sort of mischief should we get up to? :laugh:
