To be honest sometimes we're all awake at similar times during the night but just don't come online. We could definitely repopulate the internet at 3am!

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 03:18 PM

I always come online if I'm up during the night!
Basically all my waking hours I'm either here or at work
What a thrilling life I lead

shadow-light 26-10-2021 03:20 PM

i try not to come online if awake in the middle of the night. apparenlty it's "bad sleep hygeine" :eyeroll:

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 03:31 PM

It is definitely bad sleep hygiene!

shadow-light 26-10-2021 03:35 PM

pff who needs hygeinic sleep

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 03:42 PM

My sleep hygiene is really bad
Olanzapine ensures I have sleep regardless!

shadow-light 26-10-2021 04:15 PM

i seriously suck at sleeping... fairly sure my brains "natural" sleep time is from about 5am till about 11am, which obviously doesn't work with like life... not that I have all that much going on in my life right now, but still feels "wrong" somehow so I end up laying in bed (often playing on my phone or listening to a podcast0) from about 11pm until I finally feel tired at about 4ish then turn phone off

then try to still get up at a "resonable" time :laugh: I am getting better at refusing morning appointments though so that's making it a bit easier

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 04:25 PM

That's another sleep hygiene no no!
You shouldn't get into bed unless you are actually going to sleep apparently! Or use your bedroom for anything other than sleep.

shadow-light 26-10-2021 04:32 PM

ye... but i tried all the sleep hygeine stuff for years and found little benefit so gave up on it :P

shadow-light 26-10-2021 04:33 PM

also my house is FREEZING at night so like hell I am sitting downstairs until 4 am :laugh:

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 04:41 PM

Yeah me too.
Pills are the only thing that work!

Fair enough!

nonperson 26-10-2021 05:47 PM

Evening all.

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 05:54 PM

Hey np
How be you?

nonperson 26-10-2021 06:13 PM

Cold. =(


Cacoethes 26-10-2021 06:17 PM

Are you at home?
I just had the heating on for an hour to warm the house up.

I'm ok.
Just watching QI

nonperson 26-10-2021 06:20 PM

Yeah I've been home for a while. I just need to go get changed and maybe putting the heating on for a bit would be a good idea.

I'm watching Big Bang Theory.

Old or new QI?

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 06:26 PM

I hope you warm up swiftly!

Love a bit of big bang theory

New one
Well, i think it's still old but it's Sandi, not Stephen

nonperson 26-10-2021 06:41 PM

I had a warm cat on my lap but he left!

That's how I classify QI too. Sandi is new, Stephen is old.

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 06:43 PM

Oh no!

I like Sandi.
But I like Stephen more!

shadow-light 26-10-2021 07:51 PM

am i the only one who actually looks at the letter to work out the QI series? :laugh:

I also think I prefered Stephen, but Sandi is still good

Cacoethes 26-10-2021 07:56 PM

I do that too!

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 08:31 AM

Morning everyone

nonperson 27-10-2021 10:06 AM

Morning. How's everyone?

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 10:17 AM

I'm ok thanks
How are you?

tamobhuuta 27-10-2021 10:39 AM

Hi np and Cacoethes. I am ok, I slept really well AND my magazine arrived in the post. How are you?

nonperson 27-10-2021 11:37 AM

Helloooo. =P

I'm ok too. Seem to have avoided doing a talk to 10 people today which is good.

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 11:55 AM

Oh that sounds awful np!
Glad you got out of it!

I've picked up my medication and been to the post office to post some student finance stuff.
Also put my medication into boxes.
Now just need to wait for washing to finish and put it away and shower

nonperson 27-10-2021 12:09 PM

Well, I will have to do it at some point...

Ooh busy busy.

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 12:32 PM

What's the talk about?

I did plan on doing absolutely nothing today but alas, life gets in the way!

nonperson 27-10-2021 01:16 PM

How to read plant labels and how to fill in paperwork correctly. Really exciting...

Ugh life =P

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 01:20 PM

Sounds thrilling!

I know. Life always gets in the way of my plans!

nonperson 27-10-2021 01:22 PM

Basically it's a talk about how to not piss me off. =P

Plans get in the way of my life, lol.

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 01:29 PM

I think I need to do one of those at work :p
Maybe a talk on how I am not the only one working so stop telling me to do things while I'm already doing other things, you get off your phone and do the things!

True :p

one_step_closer 27-10-2021 01:42 PM

Hi everyone.

What magazine did you get Tamo? I love getting nice post.

Sounds good that you got out of doing you talk today NP but does that mean you'll just have to do it on some other day?

Have you got time for doing nothing later on Beckie?

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 01:48 PM

Hey lindsay!

Yeah all I need to do now is put my washing away and shower
But will do those things later so I'm doing nothing now!

one_step_closer 27-10-2021 01:51 PM

What does doing nothing look like to you?

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 01:58 PM

It's pretty much just having the TV on in the background while I do random internetting/playing phone games and not having to go out!
Which I guess technically isn't nothing
But it's less than what I normally do!

one_step_closer 27-10-2021 05:07 PM

Sounds good. When I was growing up and my brother said he was doing nothing I always said to him you can't be doing nothing, you're breathing etc!

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 05:30 PM

That is true!

I have now done all my things for today
Have you been up to much today lindsay?

nonperson 27-10-2021 06:04 PM

Talk got rearranged to 7:30 tomorrow morning. This is bad for so many reasons... >.<

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 06:33 PM

That's too early to be doing ANYTHING!!!

nonperson 27-10-2021 06:36 PM

That's when I start work and when I am at my least talkative or patient with people. *whine* D=

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 06:53 PM

Oh nooo D:

nonperson 27-10-2021 07:14 PM

Oh well... Maybe lack of patience will mean I won't get worked up about it...

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 07:16 PM

Hopefully it will be fine!

nonperson 27-10-2021 07:59 PM

Yeah, I just hope I don't get all nervous and weird... and now I'm thinking about how many people will be staring at me at once........ =|

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 08:01 PM

I do not envy you at all!
Flashbacks to having to do presentations in school! Eugh

nonperson 27-10-2021 08:10 PM

Yeah, I remember that too. And again at college... and again at another college except I got out of that one by having a breakdown.

This is only 9 people, I think. And I know them all and I know what I'm talking about so... it should be ok...

nonperson 27-10-2021 08:12 PM

Oh and I've just remembered another one where I went AWOL and refused to even enter the room when they found me again... I have not got a good track record with speaking to groups of people.

Cacoethes 27-10-2021 08:16 PM

I had one at college but ended up IP. But still had to do it when I got out! Luckily only to the tutor though and not the class!

Eeep! Not good!
I'm sure you'll be ok though. Like you said, it's people you know and you know what you're talking about!
