How could someone dislike the sauce?!
Walk sounds good! It's such a nice day!

Hi Lorraine! I'm sure you'll enjoy it once you're there :)

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 05:07 PM

Hope the walk helps Bambi :)

I hope you enjoy the writing group Lorraine :)

I have never tried a fillet o fish!

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 05:12 PM

Filet o fish are very nice!!
I do prefer something really meaty these days though like a big mac or bacon double cheeseburger. Mmmm!!

What are you up to Hannah?

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 05:19 PM

I had a cheeseburger but I feel bad because I keep telling myself I'm going to give up meat! :P I might try a fillet o fish next time!

I am bored tbh! I'm doing some colouring. What are you up to?

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 05:28 PM

But meat is so tasty!

I am also bored! Been on the wii fit now watching Greys anatomy and waiting for slimming world at 7:30.

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 05:34 PM

I know but I keep thinking about the poor animals! But it is so good! I would miss it so much!

Hope slimming world goes well! You should come visit me. Then we can be bored together. Or not be bored! :P

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 05:38 PM

Meat is still gonna be sold whether you eat meat or not!
I was veggie for 9 years. I wouldn't be able to do it now! Mmmm bacon!!!
And the crispy duck and pancakes from the Chinese.
And burgers. And nandos.
I am so hungry!

Thanks!
I totally would if I had any money at all! :p

not_so_insig 28-03-2017 05:41 PM

I have a frijj strawberry milkshake.

I haven't been to macdonalds for years. I am not a big fan tbh. I remember taking my late nana there when I was younger and she was shocked that there was no cutlery!

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 05:46 PM

I love the frijj milkshakes.

I haven't been in ages either. There's one near college but I'm trying to eat healthily so no McDonald's for me!
Even though I do like the monopoly thing they do!

not_so_insig 28-03-2017 05:49 PM

I love burgers though. Nearly had one on Sunday but went for mussels and chips. They were proper chips I can't stand frozen chips. They are tasteless.

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 05:51 PM

Yum, enjoy your milkshake Dawn!

The monopoly thing is on at the moment, I have a free sundae to claim! :D

Also Beckie, that is terrible logic! I might as well be like oh well, people are still gonna be murdered whatever I do so I might as well go on a killing spree :P (Disclaimer: not planning to!)

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 05:59 PM

It's not the same! Cos if you said 'I might as well go on a killing spree' then MORE people would die as you were adding to the killing l.
Where if you stopped eating meat, they will still kill the same amount of animals for meat products. They're not gonna be like 'oh, one more person is vegetarian, let's kill one less cow!'

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 06:01 PM

Okay fine then it's like not recycling and doing your bit for the planet! Like, one person doesn't make a difference but lots of one persons does so you still need to do your bit! Not that I'm saying everyone should be veggie (considering I'm not even one!) but the argument that it doesn't make any difference is a cop out :P

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 06:13 PM

I can see what you mean. But like for every 1000 vegetarians do you think they're gonna kill any less cows?


Just to point out I have absolutely nothing against vegetarians and whatever reasons they have for being vegetarian!! :p

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 06:18 PM

Yeah, I think 1000 veggies could save quite a few cows!

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 06:20 PM

So the companies would stop killing them if x number of people were vegetarians?

not_so_insig 28-03-2017 06:28 PM

If they stopped killing animals then there would be no cats (they can't become vegetarian unlike dogs), no leather goods and many of our farm animals would become extinct. A big radical change would have to occur in the food industry not only the obvious meat products but things which contain meat deteratives such as gelatine.

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 06:34 PM

Dogs can't be vegetarians either!
But yeah, meat is used for a lot of stuff!

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 06:38 PM

Dogs can be veggie I think!

And yeah - less people eating meat = more waste at current meat production rates = less profit = reduction of animals bred and killed in order to maximise profit. I don't think I said that everyone should be veggie and we shouldn't have cats (I eat meat!!) just that I feel bad about my personal responsibility for the deaths of unnecessary animals (as humans can be very healthy vegetarians!) and that saying it doesn't make a difference isn't the best argument!

Shall we change the subject? :P

I'm colouring in a pretty picture of giraffes right now.

not_so_insig 28-03-2017 06:49 PM

Dogs can be veggie.

No you didn't say that everyone should be veggie I was pointing out that it was unfeasible for everyone to become one. I do think that people should eat the best quality meat that they can afford however. Cheap meat and mass commercialisation means that often the animal suffers whilst alive. If people are going to eat meat then the animal should have the best life possible whilst alive.

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 06:54 PM

We shall agree to disagree then Hannah!! :p

What else should we talk about?
The weather is rather nice today!
I have slimming world in 30 mins and it feels.weird because it's light outside!

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 06:58 PM

I am enjoying it getting lighter! It is practically summer now!!

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 07:02 PM

We're definitely getting there!!
It's supposed to be warm this week! Yay!

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 07:07 PM

I want to go on holiday somewhere hot! I'm so bored of UK weather!

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 07:09 PM

Me too!! I REALLY want to go to Thailand!

not_so_insig 28-03-2017 07:19 PM

I have just been to the postbox in a short sleeved top and I am not cold. Then again I have my central heating on. I am debating whether to turn it off.

Cacoethes 28-03-2017 07:45 PM

I've just been out in a hoodie and I was hot!
My hands have been getting really warm lately. Apparently it happens that you get better circulation when you quit smoking so that's probably why!

Sketchy 28-03-2017 09:30 PM

Hi everyone.

I made it out and glad I did. Nice to be back home though.

not_so_insig 28-03-2017 10:16 PM

Well done for getting out Lorraine I know that you struggle with that sometimes.

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 10:18 PM

Well done Lorraine :)

Shall we arrange an RYL trip to Thailand Beckie? :P

Shy_Bambi 28-03-2017 10:39 PM

Hello everybody. I hope everyone is doing well. That sounds like an adorable picture, Serendipity! I love giraffes

Sketchy 28-03-2017 10:47 PM

Thanks guys.

Serendipity. 28-03-2017 10:47 PM

It was cute :) I'm on rabbits now! How are you bambi?

Sketchy 28-03-2017 10:51 PM

I like rabbits.

Shy_Bambi 28-03-2017 10:51 PM

I'm okay. Just watching tv waiting to feel sleepy enough to go to sleep. How are you? :)
Hello Sketchy! :)

Sketchy 28-03-2017 10:52 PM

Hello bambi. :)

Shy_Bambi 28-03-2017 10:52 PM

I used to have a bunny that I thought was a girl for 2 years until I took her to a vet and found out she was a he. Random fact lol

Sketchy 28-03-2017 10:55 PM

What was your bunny named?

Shy_Bambi 28-03-2017 10:59 PM

Her/his name was Luna :3

Sketchy 28-03-2017 11:02 PM

Aww sweet. I've never had a pet. The closest was when my sister had a gold fish. It lived for 6 years and was called Jerry.

Shy_Bambi 28-03-2017 11:03 PM

Aww I love fish. Why don't you get a pet? A kitten would be lovely.

Sketchy 28-03-2017 11:07 PM

I live in a one bedroom flat that I think would be too small for a cat. If I ever move somewhere bigger then I'd love to get one.

Shy_Bambi 28-03-2017 11:11 PM

Oh okay. Well, a hamster or something would be okay. Even a guinea pig!

Sketchy 28-03-2017 11:13 PM

I'm going to log off and get some sleep. Good night Bambi. Good night Hannah.

Shy_Bambi 28-03-2017 11:14 PM

Okay, goodnighty Sketchy!

Serendipity. 29-03-2017 12:08 AM

Lol Bambi!

Sleep well Lorraine!

My flatmate has two cats, I love them. I would love a pet of my own. One day!

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 08:07 AM

Pets are amazing, I really hope you get one one day, Serendipity!

[Luna] 29-03-2017 08:19 AM

Morning guys <3

Shy_Bambi 29-03-2017 08:37 AM

Good morning Luna :)

Buttons. 29-03-2017 08:39 AM
