Cacoethes 01-01-2022 07:34 PM

Indeed!
I will definitely be watching!
I'm going to miss all the good new year telly

nonperson 01-01-2022 07:40 PM

I got really confused then - was about to say "Why, where are you going to be? It'll be on catch-up..." and then realised what you actually meant.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 07:43 PM

Haha! :tongue2:

I decided to open a WKD.
I've finished the raspberry lemonade ones so I'm having a berry one

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:06 PM

I didn't know WKD was still a thing. Or that it came in flavours other than... blue, lol.

I've got a couple of bottles of cider than need using up tonight.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 08:09 PM

I didn't either!
But brother and his fiancÚ got me a box of them for Christmas!

Just normal cider or flavoured?
I recently had a rekorderlig mango and raspberry at work. That was yummy!

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:13 PM

I'm saddened to have just read that Bacardi Breezers were discontinued in 2015!

Normal cider - Katy. Can't drink those flavoured ones any more. I think it was a Rekorderlig watermelon one I had recently for a change and it was nice but just tooooo sickly sweet.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 08:18 PM

Whaaat?!
That's disappointing
I spent many a cold winter's night, in parks, with my friends drinking bacardi breezers!

Yes they are incredibly sweet tbh!

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:23 PM

I missed out on doing that... =/

Smirnoff Ice too. Apparently they're still around!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 08:30 PM

It wasn't all that great tbh!
Just the nostalgia value really!

I did love a smirnoff ice too!

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:35 PM

I know. I guess I just didn't do a lot of the things growing up that people find nostalgic now =/

It was all about the alcopops back then. Even my dad used to drink them!

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 08:40 PM

It's not for everyone!

Indeed!
I don't think my step dad would touch them (he's an alcohol snob) but the rest of the family like them!

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:52 PM

No, but kind of a rite of passage.

Alcoholic snob sounds like an oxymoron.

There's too much stuff on tv that I want to watch tonight. Wonder Woman is on now and then Resident Evil AND Venom at 9pm.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 08:53 PM

He pretty much only drinks obscure beers and ales.

So annoying when that happens!
I like resident evil but it freaks me the **** out!

nonperson 01-01-2022 08:58 PM

Oh totally. I haven't seen it in years but still claim it to be one of favourite films even though it used to give me nightmares for days. I made my mum watch the laser slicing scene once. Think I genuinely traumatised her!

Venom is funny, I might go for that instead. And I've joined Wonder Woman party way through so can probably drop that at 9 but I couldn't turn down a bit of Gal Gadot in the meantime.

So used to just watching things on demand nowadays that scheduling tv seems way too hard.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 09:01 PM

It is pretty traumatising!

I haven't actually watched venom yet!
I do need to!
I liked wonder woman. A lot of people moan about it but I enjoyed it!

I know! We are spoilt!

nonperson 01-01-2022 09:07 PM

I don't think I've seen Venom all the way through but what I have seen I have liked!

And yeah I liked Wonder Woman too but probably because I don't know anything about the comic book character so it was just a good film to me.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 09:12 PM

I will probably like it!
I love marvel!

I don't know a lot about the comic either
It was a good film
I like captain marvel too
A lot of people had an issue with that too!

nonperson 01-01-2022 09:36 PM

I really liked Captain Marvel but that was not because of her character but definitely because of Fury and the flerken =D

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 09:43 PM

Omg yes! That was amazing!

nonperson 01-01-2022 09:45 PM

Made me look at cats in an entirely different way though.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 10:01 PM

Cats do not exist
They are all flerkens

Taskmaster is on!
They aren't socially distanced!!!
And the audience is back!

nonperson 01-01-2022 10:04 PM

Not all of them, but it's impossible to tell....

Oh god that must be so weird to see o.o

I've just put Venom on.

Cacoethes 01-01-2022 10:09 PM

I want a flerken

It is!

Enjoy!
I'll have to watch it tomorrow because I do want to watch it!

not_so_insig 02-01-2022 08:06 AM

Morning all! Looks like I beat Beckie lol.

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 09:59 AM

Haha! You did!

nonperson 02-01-2022 10:58 AM

Morning all.

I fell asleep before watching much of Venom last night! And I need to ring the vets in a few minutes. Fun fun.

How's everyone?

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 10:59 AM

Hey np!

Fun times!
Hope it goes ok!

I'm ok. Just bored!

tamobhuuta 02-01-2022 11:13 AM

Hi everyone :)
I've got my Secular Carmelite meeting this afternoon, I'm really looking forward to it.

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 11:14 AM

Hey tamo

I have no idea what that is but I hope you enjoy it!

tamobhuuta 02-01-2022 11:19 AM

You make promises like monks and nuns but you live in the normal world. You get together to talk, read and pray.

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 11:21 AM

Ohhh ok!

Well, not my thing but I'm glad you're looking forward to it :)

tamobhuuta 02-01-2022 11:22 AM

It's pretty unusual, even if you are Catholic.

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 11:31 AM

I went to a Catholic primary school for a few years.
Never heard of it though!

tamobhuuta 02-01-2022 11:44 AM

I didn't go to a Catholic school until 6th form. By that point they were the only school willing to take me!

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 11:55 AM

I loved the Catholic school!
We learned Italian as part of the curriculum there.
I still remember some of it thanks to a memorable teacher!

tamobhuuta 02-01-2022 12:00 PM

That's really cool. Our L works in a Catholic primary school. It's hard work!

Edit: all schools are hard, not just Catholic ones.

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 12:16 PM

Yes I bet!
I wouldn't want to work in a school!
I worked in a pre school when I was a teenager and that was hard enough!

tamobhuuta 02-01-2022 12:33 PM

One year after my exams I helped out with the years one and two. I quite enjoyed it.

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 12:42 PM

There were definitely enjoyable moments!
But it was hard!
I don't even like children now though!
Apart from jasmine obviously!

tamobhuuta 02-01-2022 01:07 PM

Obviously :)

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 01:12 PM

I am losing the will to live!
I want to go out!
2 more days of isolation!

tamobhuuta 02-01-2022 02:15 PM

You can do it! *cheer leads*

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 02:17 PM

Thanks tamo!!! :-D

I want to go on an adventure!
I wish I could drive!

tamobhuuta 02-01-2022 02:47 PM

Probably best to wait until you're not isolating! Where would you go?

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 02:54 PM

Yeah true!

I don't know!
I could go anywhere!
I want to go abroad but I could test positive for up to 90 days yet so that's not gonna happen anytime soon!
I'm only 40 mins from London by train!
I'm not the biggest fan of London tbh but there is lots to do there!
Or go somewhere I've never been before! I like doing that!

not_so_insig 02-01-2022 03:42 PM

How about the seaside other than Brighton?

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 03:47 PM

That's a good idea!
As long as it's not Eastbourne or Norfolk!
Love Norfolk but I'm from there and I want to go somewhere different!

one_step_closer 02-01-2022 04:04 PM

Do you have a garden you can go in to get some time out? If that's even allowed.

Making a list of all the things you would like to do this year, not just when you're covid free, could be a positive. But if you can do a lot of them don't go wild and go through them all in a big rush.

not_so_insig 02-01-2022 04:15 PM

That's a really good idea Lindsay

Cacoethes 02-01-2022 04:20 PM

No I have no garden!
Well, I do have a strip of grass that belongs to my house! Enough grass to need mowing and have a picnic etc.
But it's pouring down with rain right now!

Going wild is fun though :tongue2:
But I do see your point!
I still need to make sure I'm still going to harry potter studios with jasmine and my friend! But my friend isn't really talking to me right now
