Pi.R^2 15-01-2023 01:40 PM

Oh lol! Totally misunderstood there :P

Pi.R^2 15-01-2023 01:45 PM

And yes, weird! As a veggie, do you find the concept of exotic meat like crocodile more unsettling than 'normal' meat? For some reason I do, but there's no valid logic to it I don't think!

Cacoethes 15-01-2023 02:28 PM

I've eaten a whale burger in Norway.

tamobhuuta 15-01-2023 02:58 PM

All meat seems weird to me. Seeing a peice of meat on the table looks gross.

Cacoethes 15-01-2023 03:11 PM

Each to their own!

one_step_closer 15-01-2023 03:15 PM

I've never tried exotic meat knowingly.

one_step_closer 15-01-2023 03:16 PM

Oh and for people not making resolutions, think about doing the positives jar. It really is good to look back on at the end of the year.

Cacoethes 15-01-2023 03:20 PM

Do you remember the tesco horse meat scandal?
That was a wild time!

I attempted the positives jar one year but I kept forgetting about it

one_step_closer 15-01-2023 03:33 PM

I think I remember that but didn't pay much attention to it. Were they really using horse meat?

Cacoethes 15-01-2023 04:30 PM

Yep! I think it was the ready meals that were found to contain it!

one_step_closer 15-01-2023 05:44 PM

Lovely.

How is your day going?

Zurg 15-01-2023 07:21 PM

Humans are weird. They'll eat almost anything just to see if they find it tasty or not….

I don't eat meat very often. I do like the taste of it but i really disapprove of how we treat farm animals and Wild animals. I find there is a conflict of ethics inside my mind quite often because as humans, when we are fully grown, we don't actually need to consume meat for any reason. As the species that basically control most aspects of this planet i also find it rather disgraceful that we can view other life forms with little to no respect at all :(

Cacoethes 15-01-2023 07:28 PM

Not bad. At work.

I get that.
I don't eat meat that much. Only really when i go out to eat

It is frickin absurd. Makes sharknado look oscar worthy!

I am both intrigued and terrified in equal parts...

I mean actual alligators could bite off the long legs of your Dobok so they didn't drag on the floor, get wet and make you slip... But yes I did mean the outdoor gear although I have no idea if I spelled the over your leg gators correctly.

I am very much appreciating everyone's fun uses of Alligator's.

Good morning thread! I haven't actually slept yet I stayed up until 2am binge watching the US season of The Traitors and then couldn't sleep.

Zurg 16-01-2023 09:42 AM

Woah Long Road, that is pretty hardcore!!! I hope you're in bed and asleep now. And that a hot coffee awaits you when you wake up :)

Morning all. How is everyone??

Cacoethes 16-01-2023 10:32 AM

Honestly it's the most insane movie I've ever watched.

Good morning both!
I am oddly tired!
I usually wake up between 7-8am. But i woke up to use the bathroom at 8 and went back to bed! Until 9! Very unlike me! I could definitely have slept more also. But I have work today.

one_step_closer 16-01-2023 12:40 PM

Morning peoples.

I hope you can catch up with sleep long road! I take it The Traitors is good?!

How are you, Kat?

Is it good that you got a bit more sleep, Beckie? I hope work goes well.

not_so_insig 16-01-2023 02:09 PM

Afternoon all. I have tesco and amazon coming today. Both due at roughly the same time. I hope that they both don't come at the same time. 2 substitutions and 3 items unavailable at tesco :angry: . I think that I will end up rejecting at least 1 of the items.

one_step_closer 16-01-2023 02:37 PM

Some substitutions are ridiculous and nothing like what you wanted. I hope yours are ok. It's a shame you've got 3 unavailable things. I find Asda is better for actually giving you what you want.

not_so_insig 16-01-2023 02:41 PM

Yes it was actually sensible this time. Unlike the time I asked for breadcrumbs and got noodles. I wanted meatball sauce and they substituted it for bolognese sauce. I don't see me using bolognese sauce.

one_step_closer 16-01-2023 02:42 PM

What's the difference between the sauces?

not_so_insig 16-01-2023 03:24 PM

Meatball sauce is thicker.

tamobhuuta 16-01-2023 03:31 PM

I had a slow start too - slower than yours Cacoethes! I got up at 10 for meds then slept until my dad arrived at 11. When he left I had another lie down in the women's lounge because there were workmen in my room.

I fell asleep about 7amish and woke up about 2pm. Coffee sounds like a good idea...

Not the best idea to get out of routine when you have chronic fatigue but once it happens sleep is better than just trying to power though and ending up having dissociative seizures.

Was fun though and the positive of being on prolonged disability leave is I have nowhere that I have to be today.

I am now even more intrigued... Don't have Netflix right now though where did you watch it?

I enjoyed it very muchly. I am not sure if it's good good but it's very compelling and there are cliffhangers each episode that make binging it happen very easily.

It's like one of those hidden identity game like mafia or werewolf but in a Scottish castle over 10 days with physical challenges thrown in. Each night the traitors 'murder' someone out of the game and the faithfuls find out at breakfast. And then each evening after the challenge they vote to banish someone they think is a traitor. And when they get to the end if there are any traitors left they win all the money but if they are all faithful they share the pot.

Ninja Post!

My start was both the earliest (still up at 5) and the latest (2pm) do I win a prize? :hehe:

Workmen being in your room sucks, are they gone now?

not_so_insig 16-01-2023 04:42 PM

I have had tesco and put nearly everything away. I am freezing as it's a cold day. Time for a coffee.

one_step_closer 16-01-2023 04:44 PM

I've never seen a jar of meatball sauce. Does it say meatball sauce on it?

Are you still tired, Tamo? That's a lot of up and down sleeping!

There must be some prize for that long road. Maybe it's even a world record! Btw what would you like us to call you?

It's very cold, Dawn. Snow here. I hope you enjoy your coffee and get all your shopping put away.

Cacoethes 16-01-2023 05:02 PM

I think it was on amazon? I use a fire stick so it suggests things.

Work is soooo slow today! Was fairly busy for a monday at lunch but now dead again. Boring!

not_so_insig 16-01-2023 05:20 PM

Yes meatball sauce says meatballs on it. I decided to accept it in the end. Now waiting for amazon.

tamobhuuta 16-01-2023 05:27 PM

I had something to eat which improved things. But I'm still sooo tempted to go back to bed! Luckily, yes, the workmen have gone.

not_so_insig 16-01-2023 05:37 PM

Amazon have been. I gave in and put my heating on.

one_step_closer 16-01-2023 06:09 PM

When do you finish, Beckie?

It'll be bedtime before you know it, Tamo!

Get yourself all toasty, Dawn. :-D

Cacoethes 16-01-2023 06:16 PM

I have finished!
Just under an hour early. It is so dead!
I'm oddly tired!
It was snowing earlier apparently. And it's freezing outside.

one_step_closer 16-01-2023 06:25 PM

Get nice and cosy inside if you can although that might make you more tired. Have you got anything you need to do?

not_so_insig 16-01-2023 06:38 PM

I have a coffee now. I am considering going to the city centre tomorrow unless it's icy.

Zurg 16-01-2023 07:25 PM

I detest having to go downtown, Dawn so if it's the same for you i really sympathise. If it's not, then i hope you have fun :)

I made a veggie Chow mein for dinner. Very yummy!!! I kind of wanted to eat a lot more of it but then i wouldn't have enough for several days AND i'd end up feeling incredibly rubbish as that always happens when i eat too much in one go…

I went to a grocery store i don't use very often and much to my pleasant surprise i discovered they carry alcohol free wine :D
I rarely ever have it because most shops don't sell it so i never bother to look for it. And it's not something i fancy drinking very often.

One of my uncles died late this afternoon. He has been sick for a while so it was expected and i am rather thankful it happened so fast because he was definetely not okay and in a lot of pain. But it makes me sad as Well.

Cacoethes 16-01-2023 07:35 PM

Just got home. Put the heating on before i left work so it's already nice and warm.
All i need to do is shower now. I wasn't going to but looked in the mirror at work and my hair is a state!

Oooh alcohol free wine!
We have 0% alcohol prosecco, gin, vodka and beer at work but not wine!

Sorry for your loss zurg.
*hugs if wanted*

Feel free to call me Jen :)

Veggie Chow Mein sounds delicious Zurg! What veggies did you put on it?

Sorry for your loss it always hurts when someone we care about dies even if it might be the better thing for them.

tamobhuuta 16-01-2023 08:35 PM

Sorry for your loss Zurg.

not_so_insig 16-01-2023 08:35 PM

Sorry to disappoint you but most alcohol free wine tastes disgusting. Better off with alcohol free beer or prosecco as they taste nice.

Sorry for your loss zurg.

Elmer 16-01-2023 08:52 PM

Just wanted to stick my head in and say sorry for your loss Zurg. I hope you are doing OK.

It sounds to me like Zurg already knows she likes it?

It's funny, sometimes people's tastes are different to other people's, it's a baffling phenomenon.

long road 16-01-2023 08:55 PM

I like alcohol free mulled wine. We had some at Christmas

tamobhuuta 16-01-2023 09:09 PM

Alcohol free wine just tastes like grape juice to me. But I like grape juice and having it in a wine bottle makes me feel fancy.

long road 16-01-2023 09:13 PM

On the topic of grape juice I quite like schloer which is basically fizzy grape juice.

Feelin fancy is fun *raises top hat*

Cacoethes 16-01-2023 09:15 PM

I've been serving a lot of alcohol free G&Ts lately.
Only thing is, it comes through as 'tanquery af' on tickets and on the till. So I automatically say 'tanquery as f*ck' when i have to make one....
Guess people are doing 'dry January'
Though I did have to make a pornstar martini today. Unusual for a monday lunchtime! But hey, why not?!

They always got us shloer for special occasions in my adolescent unit! Lol

Pi.R^2 16-01-2023 09:36 PM

My mum (who doesn’t drink a lot and also doesn’t really say the word ‘porn’ out loud) is obsessed with pornstar martinis at the moment!

Elmer 16-01-2023 09:39 PM

omg omg omg your mum just keeps getting more legendary

I'm trying to imagine her asking for a pornstar martini at a bar

long road 16-01-2023 09:39 PM

Not sure about the dry January thing it's good in principle (although not so much for bar staff revenue wise) but I think some people treat it as a free pass to drink as much us they want th other 11 months the year rather than just sticking to moderation the whole time.

What goes in a pornstar martini? I know a regular martini but I have never had a pornstar one

My mum got me schloer for Christmas Dinner this year as I don't want to risk drinking alcohol when my legs randomly give out when I am sober these days.

Do you ever say it out loud to a customer by accident? I almost certainly would
