Oh god I misspelled tyres.
What is wrong with me lately?!

Oof yeah, definitely want to get that fixed!
Do you know how long it will take?

Cough is still bad unfortunately!
No I'm not.
I gave up with all that.

Hey tamo!

nonperson 30-12-2021 12:07 PM

I was actually beginning to think I was the one spelling tyre wrong!

Not sure how long it will take. The tyres themselves should.be quick but I booked in for a wheel alignment too which apparently takes half an hour. I might go for a walk or something. I also really need a wee!

Oh boo, that's a shame. Just trying to think of things you can do with your time.

There's a man next to me coughing without a mask on..........!

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 12:24 PM

Argh now I don't know! D:

Hopefully it won't take too long!
Do they have a toilet there?

At the moment I've just been watching crap on TV.
I can't wait to go back to work!

Oh noooo! That's not good!

nonperson 30-12-2021 01:06 PM

Well all the posters on the wall here say tyre so I'm going with that =P

They've done the tyres and are just doing the alignment. I went on a walking mission to Dunelm to find a toilet, lol. Dunno if they have one here, it would probably be gross anyway.

I'm not missing work at the moment, weirdly.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 01:17 PM

I would imagine they know what they're talking about!

Yeah it probably would be gross tbh.
I love Dunelm!

When do you go back?

nonperson 30-12-2021 01:33 PM

I haven't been to Dunelm for years. I had a quick look at the bedding while I was there.

Not until the 10th! I booked the first week of January off as extra annual leave.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 02:00 PM

I usually go when i visit my nanny
We have a good look around and then go for a scone and a coffee in the café
The bedding is lovely in there!

Oh wow!
I hope you're enjoying your time off!
You deserve it, you work so hard!

one_step_closer 30-12-2021 03:27 PM

I hope you can fill your time off with nice things NP as well as things that have to be done. Beckie's right that you do work so hard. My brother finds it hard to relax when he's off work even just for the weekend, I hope you're not like that.

Sending healing wishes to Beckie. Are you managing to occupy yourself?

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 03:40 PM

Thanks lindsay :)
I've just been watching TV and random internetting.
I should probably do something productive
But cba

How are you?

nonperson 30-12-2021 03:41 PM

I can't seem to find any bedding anywhere that I like at the moment =(

Hey Lindsay, what're you up to today?

I don't know what nice things to fill my time with but managing to do little odd jobs around the house that I've put off for ages is quite pleasing. I normally don't have the energy for even the small things when I just have a weekend off. I guess I am like your brother a bit, it's hard to switch off, especially when I live pretty much on site and drive past work all the time and even when I'm off for a few days I'm usually getting phone calls or emails from people!

My family are coming over for a light trail in the new year though so that will be nice.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 03:51 PM

Well done for doing stuff np!

That sounds nice!

I've just realised it's 15°C!
I did wonder why I didn't need the heating on today!

nonperson 30-12-2021 03:57 PM

I bought some new glue today so can do the cat flap and I've got another Amazon delivery coming today with things that will allow me to unblock my disgusting drains. All the fun stuff =P

I also did not realise it was so warm out and left the house wearing a long sleeve thermal, t-shirt, jumper and fleece! I nearly died from heat exhaustion after my power walk to Dunelm!

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 04:06 PM

Haha! Thrilling! :p

Oof! I bet!
Hope you've cooled down a bit now!

nonperson 30-12-2021 04:31 PM

I'm too cold now but don't want to mooove.

Also I just met the nicest ever Amazon delivery lady!

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 04:35 PM

Oh no!
I need to get up to turn the light on and close the curtains.
But I don't want to move either

Awww nice!

I want marshmallows.

nonperson 30-12-2021 04:56 PM

I might get up for food and a jumper in a minute.

Do you have any? I'm a bit indifferent to marshmallows, maybe it's the texture? They have fire pits at the light trail though and you can buy marshmallows to toast so I kinda want to do that!

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 04:59 PM

Good plan.
I just got up to put the light on.
And to get mini cheddars.

No I don't :(
I can see why someone wouldn't like them tbh.
You should do it!
And toasted marshmallows taste totally different to raw marshmallows!

nonperson 30-12-2021 05:16 PM

Mmm mini cheddars.

They're probably going to cost like a fiver a marshmallow or.something but I feel it's too good an opportunity to miss.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 05:25 PM

I love mini cheddars!

Not often you get the chance to properly toast a marshmallow!

I've just ordered dominoes.
Was.going to do it tomorrow but it'll probably be impossible to get takeaway on new.years eve!

not_so_insig 30-12-2021 06:10 PM

Oooh what kind of pizza Beckie? Hope you enjoyed it.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 06:14 PM

I'm still waiting for it!
It's taking a while, they.must be busy!

How are you Dawn?

nonperson 30-12-2021 07:25 PM

Mmmmm Dominos. Maybe I will treat myself to one for my birthday.

I'm not surprised if they're busy. Everywhere seemed massively busy when I was out earlier.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 07:27 PM

Yes do it!

He did apologise for the wait!

Unfortunately I have just discovered I have no sense of taste or smell!
So getting domino's was a bit of a waste :'(
I can't taste my dr pepper zero either!

nonperson 30-12-2021 07:35 PM

Welcome to half of my world!

Some would argue that not being able to taste a Hawaiian pizza or Dr Pepper isn't a bad thing. =P

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 07:41 PM


nonperson 30-12-2021 07:45 PM

But not untrue =P

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 07:47 PM

I think we'll have to agree to disagree on this :p

nonperson 30-12-2021 07:53 PM

To be honest I'm not opposed to pineapple on a pizza. But you, and probably most people by now, know my standpoint on Dr Pepper/Coke/Pepsi...

*twiddles thumbs*

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 07:54 PM

Although I literally cannot imagine not drinking coke/pepsi/dr pepper, we all have different tastes!

nonperson 30-12-2021 08:45 PM

Totally opposite in this case.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 08:52 PM

Weirdo :tongue2:

A Knight's Tale is on
One of my favourite films!
Heath Ledger <3

nonperson 30-12-2021 09:04 PM

*points to avatar* =P


I think I missed the whole Heath Ledger obsession thing. I've not seen that film either.

I just have music on, don't think I can concentrate on tv tonight.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 09:06 PM


I just think he did a fantastic job as the Joker!

I can't concentrate on TV anymore. Music is a good shout!
I mainly just have the TV on in the background while I play on my phone lol

nonperson 30-12-2021 09:25 PM

I'm sure I must have watched him as the Joker...

Same. I put stuff on tv and then end up doing other things at the same time and not paying attention. There's so much new stuff I want to watch but can't because I end up "watching" the episode but having no idea what happened at the end of it. =(

Music is good. It's just making me want to be in the middle of a festival crowd though.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 09:29 PM

He's the best joker

some things I really try to focus on but.my brain is like NOPE!

Ah festivals. I miss those.
I'm going to a gig in May with my friend though!
Definitely looking forward to that!

nonperson 30-12-2021 09:32 PM

I miss live music so much! D=

It's like the only time I don't care about being around billion people at once. I'd have to go on my own nowadays though, waah.

Who're you seeing?

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 09:37 PM

Yeah same!
I went on my own last time.
It was fine!

I'm seeing poets of the Fall!
My favourite band!
They're from Finland

nonperson 30-12-2021 09:42 PM

It probably would be fine but argh, I dunno.

Hm, I don't know them.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 09:45 PM

They have a largeish following around Europe.
But they aren't huge
Which is good because it means affordable gigs!

nonperson 30-12-2021 09:54 PM

True true.

Gimme a song of theirs to listen to =P

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 10:01 PM

Carnival of rust is the first one I was shown!

nonperson 30-12-2021 10:09 PM

Listening now. I don't dislike it!

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 10:15 PM

Well that's good!

nonperson 30-12-2021 10:23 PM

But... it hasn't gripped me =P Maybe I'll listen to some other songs later.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 10:28 PM

Fair enough!
Yes do!
I'm never sure about new music tbh
I'm very set in my.ways but I made an exception for them!

nonperson 30-12-2021 10:36 PM

I'm quite obsessive in my music. Like if one song grabs me then I'll listen to that same band constantly for ages.

I'm currently scrolling through "new music" on Amazon but it's a mix of old and new.

Marylin Manson - Tainted Love!

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 10:42 PM

Yep me too!

I've mostly been listening to the same music I've been listening to for the last 15 years.
Though must say I've got quite into olivia rodrigo recently! Jasmine's influence!

Love that song!

nonperson 30-12-2021 10:47 PM

Who doesn't love that song =P

I've no idea who Olivia Rodrigo is...

Amazon music is good in that it likes to make a playlist of all my favs at the end of the year so at the moment I'm mostly listening to 2020 and 2021's most played songs. But if I take the time to listen to new stuff I do enjoy finding a new band to obsess over. That hasn't happened in a while though =|

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 11:00 PM

She was in high school musical the series then started a music career.
Jasmine is absolutely OBSESSED with her!
It's fun.to wind her up by pronouncing the name wrong. We tend.to call her olivier Rodriguez. Drives jasmine mental XD

I use amazon music too.
I like the 'my soundtrack' playlist.
I've discovered so many cool songs/bands that I'd never heard of through that!

nonperson 30-12-2021 11:11 PM

Ooh there's nothing worse than getting the name of someone's favourite singer wrong!

Yeah I use that too =P And the "liked songs" playlist.

Although the app likes to majorly ****ing spaz out sometimes and likes to delete my playlists and buffer downloaded songs... and then, probably once a year, likes to make me have to clear all the songs I've downloaded before it lets me open the app. =/
