Argh work is sooo busy!!!
I'm glad I get a break today.
I've ordered a cheeseburger with sweet potato fries.

nonperson 15-10-2021 06:02 PM

Mmm, excellent lunch, Beckie. Sweet potato fries are just the best.

What time are you working until?

And hello everyone and *hugs* for Lindsay <3

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 07:48 PM

It was very yummy!
Was working until 6.
Thankfully I'm home now.
What a mental day!

How was work np?

How is everyone?

nonperson 15-10-2021 07:51 PM

Was it busier than usual?

Work was ok, I didn't really push myself too much but looked busy at least heh.

I'm now at my friend's house dog sitting for the evening and feel all awkward. =|

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 08:01 PM

Oh yes!
Very much like a Sunday! *dies*

Why do you feel awkward?

nonperson 15-10-2021 08:14 PM

Ugh, that's no good. Wonder why it was so busy today o.o

And I dunno, I'm used to being here!

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 08:19 PM

Maybe everyone got off work early?!

I kind of get the uncomfortableness of being somewhere else.
Even if it's somewhere you're used to!

nonperson 15-10-2021 08:27 PM

Maybe! The lucky bastards.

It's weird... and the dog is asleep on her bed and being boring.

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 08:29 PM

Tell me about it!

Poke her a bit :p

nonperson 15-10-2021 08:31 PM

Noo, she'll have my hand off!

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 08:37 PM

So would I if you woke me up tbh :p

Oh I booked me and the bestie's xmas lunch for December! Didn't have to pay a deposit luckily!

nonperson 15-10-2021 08:39 PM

Ooh nice. Perks of the job?

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 08:45 PM

Also found out today that the cocktails that are 2 for 1 (pink gin martini and espresso martini) are free for staff!
If only they knew that on the bar last week when I bought a million of them XD

I also have a new pet hate
People who say/write 'expresso' instead of 'espresso'

nonperson 15-10-2021 08:48 PM

I'm not sure free cocktails would have been a good idea last weekend XD

Oh yeah I've heard people say that before.

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 08:56 PM

Probably not XD
One of the guys on the bar, just turned 18 bless him, tried to spell out 'Beckie' in coffee beans on top of the espresso martinis last weekend for my birthday!
It totally failed but was very sweet.

It really gets on my nerves for some reason!

nonperson 15-10-2021 08:59 PM

He should have done one letter for each drink maybe? =P

Oh it's totally irritating when people pronounce words wrong. Pacific/specific is one.

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 09:01 PM

Yeah. Bless him

Oohh that's another one!

nonperson 15-10-2021 09:03 PM

Don't hear that one so much any more. There seemed to be an epidemic of it a few years ago.

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 09:09 PM

I know.
I once had an English teacher who used to say 'pacifically' instead of specifically.
Which was concerning

nonperson 15-10-2021 09:11 PM

That's beyond worrying...!

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 09:18 PM

It was really annoying but you can hardly go and correct an English teacher on their grammar!

nonperson 15-10-2021 09:30 PM

I dunno, I think anyone would be entitled to correct her in that situation.

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 09:32 PM

Yeah true
But socially anxious 15 year old me would struggle with that lol

nonperson 15-10-2021 09:32 PM

Oh yeah same. I wouldn't have said a word either.

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 09:36 PM

I still don't like correcting people!
I always start doubting myself and thinking I'm the one who has got it wrong!

nonperson 15-10-2021 09:43 PM

Eh you're not the only one. It's easy to put doubt in my mind too.

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 09:49 PM

We are a pair!

nonperson 15-10-2021 09:52 PM

Totally. I need like a direct link to Google in my brain so I can fact check as I speak!

Cacoethes 15-10-2021 09:55 PM

That would be so good!

Right. I'm off to bed I think.
Shattered! Its been a long day.
I don't have to set an alarm for tomorrow :-D

Night night! Sleep well!

nonperson 15-10-2021 09:59 PM


nonperson 16-10-2021 09:13 AM

Morning everyone!

Cacoethes 16-10-2021 09:50 AM

You beat me to it np! :tongue2:

nonperson 16-10-2021 10:02 AM

I know ;-)

How're you?

Cacoethes 16-10-2021 10:07 AM

How very dare you :p

I'm ok thanks!
Some very strange dreams.
I was a dog leading other dogs to run away to France via ferry. There was more to it but that was the main bit.

How are you?

nonperson 16-10-2021 10:31 AM

Were you a dog too? O.o

I had weird dreams as well but can't remember them now at all... I could when I woke up.

I'm alright. Been to see my friend's dog and have decided to do the dreaded food shop while I'm out. And I'm really hungry so might get something tasty and evil for breakfast.

What're you up to today?

Cacoethes 16-10-2021 10:38 AM

I was!

I only really remember them for a short time after waking up. But i can sometimes remember the main bits.

Sounds good apart from the food shop!
Definitely get something tasty!

I also need to do a food shop.
Which for me is basically just a coke zero shop lol
Need to sort out the airing cupboard too. But I think I'll do that tomorrow.
Everything just gets dumped in there

nonperson 16-10-2021 11:55 AM

It was getting so busy out in the world when I was leaving. Glad to be home.

My shop was mostly a rice cake shop...

I'm a little surprised that an airing cupboard gets messy, surely it's just sheets and stuff?!

Cacoethes 16-10-2021 11:58 AM

I've gone off rice cakes for some reason

It is just sheets and stuff
But my neighbour keeps randomly giving me a ton of towels and sheets that I really don't need and I just kind of push them in there
I think there's other stuff in the back too. But I'm not sure lol
I probably realistically only need like 3 towels because it's just me. And I do washing frequently.
But I have approximately a million towels that I never use. Because I have favourite towels

nonperson 16-10-2021 12:09 PM

You need to try the pesto ones by Kallo, that'll get you back on rice cakes.

That's annoying - kinda helpful but not really if you've already got loads. I could do with new towels though

Cacoethes 16-10-2021 12:16 PM

Oooh they sound good!

She means well
But I just don't need so many towels and sheets! Sheets that don't even fit!
She's done the same with glasses, plates and bowls too

tamobhuuta 16-10-2021 12:23 PM

Morning guys.

It's grey and miserable here so I'm glad I have no errands.

nonperson 16-10-2021 12:25 PM

That sounds like quite a quirky habit of hers, Beckie XD

Morning Tamo! What will you be doing with your day?

It was pouring with rain earlier here but the sun's out now so maybe the weather will improve later in your area.

Cacoethes 16-10-2021 12:26 PM

Morning tamo!

It is an annoying habit!
I live alone! I don't need a shelf full of glasses!

It's the same here np

nonperson 16-10-2021 12:32 PM

I'm kind of amused thinking that she probably thinks she's being really helpful but your house is just filling up with her unwanted junk. XD

Also, off topic and not that you asked but I didn't have to call the council to sort out paying council tax.

tamobhuuta 16-10-2021 12:34 PM

I've got a friend who's very kind but leaves random things on my doorstep.

nonperson 16-10-2021 12:41 PM

Useful random things?

Cacoethes 16-10-2021 12:42 PM

Pretty much!
I'm going to get rid of it all on a local free page on fb.

I was actually going to ask!
It's all very confusing!
Hopefully they'll just take it out automatically then!

tamobhuuta 16-10-2021 12:44 PM

Nope. If I can I try to give it back. Some of it I have to throw away because there just isn't space!

nonperson 16-10-2021 12:52 PM

Well you still have to set it up and make sure you're getting your single person discount and there are other discounts that might apply? I'm not entirely sure about that but I remember having to check they'd applied the single person one to mine.

And you only pay 10 months of the year but that can be changed if you want to pay 12 months to reduce the monthly cost but I think you would have to ring them in that case.

Cacoethes 16-10-2021 12:54 PM

Ah ok.
I'll check the letter again to make sure they applied the single person discount!
It's hard being a grown up
