Thanks Lindsay for your kind words xxx.

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 03:55 PM

Good point dawn!

one_step_closer 29-10-2022 05:52 PM

Sending love Beckie, if wanted.

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 05:59 PM

Thanks lindsay <3

Has your asda delivery arrived?

Pi.R^2 29-10-2022 06:00 PM

*Hugs* Beckie! What a weird day for you =S

one_step_closer 29-10-2022 06:01 PM

Yeah it arrived at about 3.45pm. Did we match delivery times?

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 06:07 PM

Thank you Jenna!
Very weird day!

My delivery came at 3:57. So it was very close lindsay!

one_step_closer 29-10-2022 06:08 PM

We'll call that close enough to be spooky!

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 06:26 PM

Absolutely!
Very close considering the 2 hour window!

Pi.R^2 29-10-2022 08:43 PM

Haha, delivery twins!
What’s everyone up to this evening?

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 08:45 PM

I'm just chilling. Listening to music.

How about you?

nonperson 29-10-2022 08:58 PM

Hi all. I've finished work for the day and done my food shop and now it's time for Strictly!

Whatcha listening to, Beckie?

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 09:08 PM

Well done np!

I was listening to just some random playlist!
Particularly enjoying 'victorias secret' by jax. It's quite funny.
Now I'm watching gogglebox on Netflix!

nonperson 29-10-2022 09:17 PM

Random playlists are good sometimes, especially if you don't know what to listen to or want to find something new. Might look up that song some time.

Ah, good ol' Gogglebox. Do they have all the series on there?!

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 09:33 PM

Indeed! I love amazon music. Just so easy to tell my alexa to pick a random playlist! She does well.

Yes i think so!
It's just something easy and light hearted to watch

nonperson 29-10-2022 09:36 PM

I always used Amazon music too but the app became so glitchy that I ditched and swapped to Spotify. Still need to transfer all my music and playlists over...

Gogglebox isn't something I've ever managed to get into but when I have watched it I have sort of enjoyed it!

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 09:43 PM

I've not experienced any issues with amazon music so far!

I just needed something that i don't have to concentrate on!

Zurg 29-10-2022 09:47 PM

I just watched my first episode of What We Do In The Shadows. Mwuahahahaa!!! Awkward vampires with terrible sense of humour and terrible taste in both clothes and servants XD This bodes Well.
I finished Only Murders in the Building a few days ago. That was bloody hilarious!!!

Contemplating going to sleep soon. Hosted a birthday party this afternoon. My mind felt like i had endured at least 7 different exams after. Like, my head just goes all empty and tired when a 2-year old and a 4-year old keeps ending their sentences with “whyyyyy????!!?!”

nonperson 29-10-2022 09:49 PM

I used to love it but it kept crashing and deleting my play queue and downloads getting stuck or telling me it was trying to download songs when there werent any songs in the download queue so I eventually got too pissed off with it. But I've been converted to Spotify by the "enhance playlist" feature which adds recommended songs to the playlist that you can switch on and off really easily.

Yup, totally understandable. That's why I like Strictly, I think.

nonperson 29-10-2022 09:50 PM

Was it a kids birthday party, Zurg?

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 09:58 PM

I've been meaning to watch that zurg!

I get you with the child thing.
There were 2 little girls in my taekwando class once and they spent more time asking 'why......?' Than actually doing taekwando!
It is draining!

Ah that sounds super annoying np!
Hopefully they've sorted the glitches because i don't know if i could cope with changing to spotify!
It was only last year that i retired my ipod and started listening to music on my phone!

nonperson 29-10-2022 10:10 PM

I like answering why questions to my friends kids because I just go into so much detail that they go... "Ok..." and wander off =P

I wasn't sure I'd cope swapping to Spotify either, Beckie! Change is bad! But actually, I got used to it. But I did like Amazon music so if it still works for you then stick with it!

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 10:22 PM

Haha!
Top way of dealing with kids!

I think i would genuinely cry if i lost my playlists though!

nonperson 29-10-2022 10:27 PM

Yeah, I haven't lost them, just haven't transferred any of them over but actually the fresh start has been good in a way. But I'm so faddy with my music that it's not like I need old playlists. Just need to set some time aside to work through it all. Apparently there are free apps that will do it for you but I don't trust that so... =/

nonperson 29-10-2022 10:36 PM

Oh also was it you who has talked about Snowpiercer, Beckie?

The film was on Now tv the other day.

Cacoethes 29-10-2022 10:42 PM

Ah ok! Fair enough!

Yep!
I watched the series first, which is based on the film. But both are actually very different from each other!
Can't wait for the new season

nonperson 29-10-2022 11:07 PM

I haven't checked to see if the series is available on Now. The film was good, I think. Kind of strange... Not sure about the ending.

Cacoethes 30-10-2022 09:36 AM

It is quite strange!
The series has an almost completely different plot tbh.

Morning everyone!

Pi.R^2 30-10-2022 10:14 AM

Morning gang! Any news?

Cacoethes 30-10-2022 10:23 AM

Morning jenna!

Nothing going on here.
Apart from rugrats in Paris was meant to be on over an hour ago but what is actually on is hollyoaks. Which is disappointing. Tv guide doesn't know what it's doing today!

tamobhuuta 30-10-2022 11:04 AM

Don't forget, clocks have changed! It's actually just after 10am

Cacoethes 30-10-2022 11:09 AM

Ah yeah forgot about that
Maybe that's why the tv was all messed up!

Pi.R^2 30-10-2022 12:07 PM

Lol Beckie, did you not notice the time on your phone?!

Cacoethes 30-10-2022 12:10 PM

The times were correct! All matched up with the phone and tv and everything! Idk.

tamobhuuta 30-10-2022 12:38 PM

How odd.

Mum brought me a muffin and a latte :) I also decided to have PRN instead of straightaway fighting to escape. I'm waiting for it to kick in.

Pi.R^2 30-10-2022 12:52 PM

That is weird, maybe Rugrats in Paris was genuinely delayed by an earlier thing!

Well done tamo, that's a great shout to try PRN instead. I do hope it kicks in soon.

Cacoethes 30-10-2022 01:21 PM

Sounds good tamo!
Well done for having prn.
Take it from an experienced escape artist, it's never worth it!

Yeah very weird.

Asda had my favourite cheese salad in stock so i am pleased

one_step_closer 30-10-2022 01:37 PM

Hi everyone. I'm feeling so weird with the clock changes. I hope I can settle into it soon. Crookshanks is annoying me trying to tell me it's his lunch time.

I've never seen Rugrats In Paris. I loved the TV program.

I'm glad you made that decision, Tamo. I'm proud of you.

Yay for cheese salad!

Cacoethes 30-10-2022 01:41 PM

Rugrats was awesome.
They show both the movies on tv quite a bit!

one_step_closer 30-10-2022 01:47 PM

I remember playing a Rugrats game on my ps1. It had mini golf on it and that was fun.

Pi.R^2 30-10-2022 02:52 PM

What even is a cheese salad? Like is it lettuce and stuff and then random cheese?

one_step_closer 30-10-2022 03:25 PM

Not random cheese, usually grated cheddar but posh cheese in some. Just like you might have a tuna salad or a ham salad you can have a cheese salad.

one_step_closer 30-10-2022 03:28 PM

Imaginary cheese salad could just be lots of different cheeses in one bowl. Were you thinking that? Like potato salad?

tamobhuuta 30-10-2022 04:17 PM

I sort of eat cheese salad. I pick out the cheese and leave the leaves. EXCEPT tomato and mozzarella, that is nom.

Cacoethes 30-10-2022 05:05 PM

I had that same game lindsay!
So good!

The cheese salad had grated cheddar, lettuce, cucumber, shredded carrot and pasta. With some sort of dressing.

one_step_closer 30-10-2022 05:45 PM

Iceberg lettuce or yucky leaves?

Pi.R^2 30-10-2022 05:53 PM

All leaves are yucky :P
I wasn't imagine just lots of different cheeses but that would be excellent!
I remember at the first ever uni thread meet we went to Pizza Hut and they had unlimited free salad. I got a big bowl of doritos and nothing else; that's my kind of salad.

one_step_closer 30-10-2022 06:05 PM

I'd definitely choose Doritos over salad. Salad is so boring. They never had Doritos when I went to Pizza Hut a million years ago. So unfair!

Cacoethes 30-10-2022 06:11 PM

I think it was iceberg lettuce!

I do love a salad! Has to have a dressing though! Can't be dealing with a dry salad!

one_step_closer 30-10-2022 06:20 PM

Have you ever tried Ranch salad from Asda? It just has lots of really thinly cut veg and croutons and ranch dressing and maybe some kind of cheese? I really like that. It's in a bag though so probably meant to be a side.

Edit: Google says it's a coleslaw mix but it's nothing like coleslaw.
