Ah, see I'm not a morning person so I'd be too relaxed (i.e. asleep!) if I didn't have a shower to get me going.

I recently surveyed my colleagues about morning vs evening showering (and one rogue colleague who always has a bath!) and it was great fun seeing their reactions to someone of the opposite inclination :P

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 04:44 PM

I guess I'm a bit of a morning person.
Usually once I'm awake I'm fully awake and ready for the day!

Not a fan of baths!
I do have one but as an epileptic, i shouldn't really use it!
I'll have to ask people at work tomorrow about their showering habits!

I demand a poll.

Pi.R^2 26-07-2022 06:45 PM

I considered a poll when I initially found out my friend showered in the evening instead of the morning and I wanted data to show that he was a massive weirdo, but I was inclined to not create a whole thread focussing on something that people here can find quite challenging? I decided it was more OK to mention it here as showering time came up in conversation!

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 07:05 PM

Do love a good poll

I have just showered
Now watching a shark documentary that is presented by Chris Hemsworth. Win!

nonperson 26-07-2022 07:49 PM

I'm a morning showerer too! It's definitely part of my waking up routine. I feel gross if I leave the house without it. Plus my hair doesn't comply with pre bed time washing.

Ah Chris Hemsworth. Is he just doing the voiceover?

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 07:53 PM

No he actually presents it! In Australia. With shark experts and goes out on boats and dives and stuff.
It was really good.

I'm watching hitchhikers guide to the galaxy now. For the first time!

Zurg 26-07-2022 08:00 PM

I misread that sentence, Beckie. I thought it Said '….with shark experts and goats on boats…'
Ohhh, the burn of disappointment!!! I want shark experts with goats on boats!!! Dammit!!! My life depends on this!!!:-(

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 08:00 PM

That would have been pretty damn awesome tbh!
We should write to Chris Hemsworth with the suggestion

Ah fair enough.

Zurg 26-07-2022 08:57 PM

Yep!! You can't claim to be a serious shark show without any goats on boats!!! It's Scientific nonsense if you leave out the goats!!!

……aaaaand, i shall just see myself out now!!! *tips hat*

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 08:59 PM

I was just thinking about the jurassic park scene where the t rex eats the goat!
Sharks eating goats??

I'm loving marvin the paranoid android. Alan Rickman is the perfect voice for him!

Zurg 26-07-2022 09:04 PM

Omg!!!! Goat genocide!!!! Dinosaurs go home!!! Booo!! Down with the tyran(osaurus)!!! Slay the oppressors!!! Viva la revoluciĆ³n!!!

Let the age of goats begin!!!!

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 09:07 PM

Sounds like someone has had a bit too much sugar today!

I saw this post from LFV without any context and actually assumed this was Beckie's RV. No reason.

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 09:24 PM

That made me literally lol XD
I don't know whether to be offended or not

Unbreakable. 26-07-2022 09:25 PM

Maybe a little

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 09:28 PM

I do have to admit, it is just the sort of thing i would say when in a certain.....mindset?

*dives in*

I have a tattoo of Marvin on my arm. He's my favourite.

*dives out*

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 09:34 PM

That's awesome!
It was a brilliant film

Elmer 26-07-2022 09:35 PM

You should read the books, they're wonderful.

(I also have Don't Panic Mostly Harmless tattooed on my wrist)

Unbreakable. 26-07-2022 09:35 PM

I was very concerned for a moment before it turned into utter confusion when I noticed my mistake haha

Glad you're not in that head space right now.

Up to anything nice this evening?

Unbreakable. 26-07-2022 09:36 PM

I type so slow a whole conversation happened before I hit send

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 09:39 PM

I would love to read the books
Hopefully my concentration will return at some point!

Yeah, I'm like the very picture of mental stability rn :ermm:

Just watching Goldbergs then will go to bed.
How about you?

nonperson 26-07-2022 09:53 PM

I have a knitted Marvin that my sister made for me =)

Unbreakable. 26-07-2022 09:57 PM

There's different levels of being mentally unstable though.

Watching Teen Wolf for now.
I'm bored because now that I have energy I don't know what to do with it. I don't want to stay inside all the time but going out makes me anxious lol

I also need to sort my ASDA shop bc I'm almost out of energy drinks

Marvin as in Marvin the Martian???

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 10:00 PM

Aww cute np!

That is very true Lana

Ah that is a predicament! I wish i knew what to suggest!

Marvin the paranoid android! From hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy.

Unbreakable. 26-07-2022 10:08 PM

That sounds cool, even when I don't remember what he looks like.
It's been a while since I watched it, but I really liked it.

That's alright, not looking for suggestions. Just some sympathy and maybe someone who can relate haha
I know what to do to feel better in theory, just terrible at doing it haha

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 10:11 PM

I can definitely relate!
That's basically life.

I want to go to bed but i now have a distant relative sending me photos of other distant relatives

Unbreakable. 26-07-2022 10:16 PM

How does that keep you from going to bed??
It's not late yet though.

I need to get a grip and sort my ASDA as I want it to get in tomorrow when I work from home

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 10:18 PM

Because I'm way too socially awkward to end the conversation and don't want to be rude by ignoring her after I've already replied a few times!
I think she's stopped now...

Doooo it!
Think of the energy drinks!

Unbreakable. 26-07-2022 10:35 PM

That makes sense.
These things can be hard to figure out. I never know how to start or end a conversation. So stressful.

I'm on it!
Just takes me ages because I browse for ages as I never know what to buy for food.

Cacoethes 26-07-2022 10:40 PM

Same

I do that too when i get a delivery!
And then change it multiple times because I've changed my mind or thought of something else
So i never actually remember what I've ordered in the end!

Unbreakable. 26-07-2022 10:55 PM

It's literally a whole evening's activity, isn't it??

Unbreakable. 26-07-2022 11:12 PM

Did you come here specifically to distract me from organizing my shopping in two places or ...

Cacoethes 27-07-2022 08:31 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 27-07-2022 11:26 AM

Morning, how are you?

Pi.R^2 27-07-2022 01:47 PM

Morning! How are you all? Lana did you get your shopping done??

Unbreakable. 27-07-2022 02:09 PM

Yes.
I ordered around 0:36 or so and it'll come in around five this afternoon!

not_so_insig 27-07-2022 02:27 PM

Afternoon all. I didnt sleep too well last night and then the parcel man woke me up.

Cacoethes 27-07-2022 03:05 PM

Well done for doing your order lana!

I'm on my break.
Fajitas are on the specials menu so i had them and they were delicious!

not_so_insig 27-07-2022 05:10 PM

Thanks to an American Facebook friend I have discovered that you can get tea in an aerosol can. It's a British thing too.

https://nomoreteabags.com/

Cacoethes 27-07-2022 05:36 PM

Yeah its been a thing for a while

Unbreakable. 27-07-2022 05:50 PM

Well, if you order a parcel I guess there's always the risk of the delivery person ringing at some point haha

Fajitas sounds good!!!

Cacoethes 27-07-2022 06:07 PM

Fajitas were VERY good!
I also had an eton mess sundae after work because why the **** not?!

Unbreakable. 27-07-2022 06:28 PM

Oh, very exciting!!!

My ASDA just got delivered so now I might eat sth other than pasta for dinner haha

nonperson 27-07-2022 06:38 PM

Evening all.

Cacoethes 27-07-2022 06:45 PM

I hope you have something yummy lana!

Hey np!
How are you?

nonperson 27-07-2022 06:49 PM

Hey. I'm tired as usual, had a draining day. And I'm a bit cold. Dunno what to do with myself this evening.

How're you?
