Nice I had eggs with baked beans

nonperson 12-02-2021 06:53 PM

Hi Oliness. =)

Baked beans are always a good shout.

I need to think of some easy meals for next week...

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 07:02 PM

Sounds good np!

Hi oliness!
What kind of eggs? Fried? Scrambled?

Can't help you there I'm afraid np!
I pretty much only eat soup and pasta and pesto!

oliness 12-02-2021 07:06 PM

Hi no and Cacoethes. It was scrambled eggs! Cheesy pasta is a good meal :-D

nonperson 12-02-2021 07:25 PM

Yuck to scrambled egg! =P

Both pasta and cheese are on the shopping list already!

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 07:32 PM

Scrambled eggs are yummy!

Pasta and cheese are essential!

I just had a mahoosive spider in the bathroom. I had to squish it with a shoe

nonperson 12-02-2021 07:50 PM

Eek... but poor thing. I grab them with a special spider grabber device and throw them outside.

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 07:53 PM

I know. It was HUGE though and I couldn't deal with it!
It was a quick death

nonperson 12-02-2021 07:57 PM


Cacoethes 12-02-2021 08:00 PM

I'm still really freaked out by it!
What if its friends come out for revenge?! D:

nonperson 12-02-2021 08:25 PM

It is so unsettling finding one.

Erm... keep that shoe to hand just in case.

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 08:27 PM

It really is!

I think I will

nonperson 13-02-2021 07:55 AM

Morning everyone. How are you all?

Hope the spider army left you alone last night, Beckie.

Hard to believe but the cat's gone to the next level of "gifting"... Came downstairs earlier to find a dead shrew plonked next to my kettle. Maybe he thinks I won't see them on the floor. =/

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 08:58 AM

Morning np!

Yes the spider army left me alone thankfully!

Oh dear :/
Cute that he got you a gift though!

My phone is being delivered today!

nonperson 13-02-2021 10:13 AM

At least he doesn't ever eat the shrews, he always brings them in whole and mostly undamaged for me. I'd rather he left them on the floor though, it was a bit of a shock first thing!

Excitement! That will keep you busy then.

I really should look at a new phone, the cracked screen on this one is driving me crazy.

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 10:21 AM

That's a positive then!
I can imagine it was a shock!


Ugh a cracked screen would drive me crazy too!

oliness 13-02-2021 11:04 AM

Np there's a nothing like a new phone to give you a mood boost ��

one_step_closer 13-02-2021 11:23 AM

Eww, I'm glad my cats don't bring me presents!

I hope you enjoy your new phone Beckie.

tamobhuuta 13-02-2021 11:30 AM

I hate having a new phone, i always need help setting it up.

nonperson 13-02-2021 12:34 PM

Yep, it's a major downside of having an outside cat, Lindsay!

I like doing the set up of new phones, fiddling around with settings and customising it all. Plus there are apps now that transfer everything over for you so it's all really easy.

I'm going to wait until I get my new work mobile though which will be an iPhone so if I use that and my own android one for a while I'll be able to decide whether I really want to switch back to Apple or not. I started with an iPhone and have never really gelled with Android. Although I do like that Google syncs everything together with Chrome on my laptop.

Can you use Chrome on iPhones? o.O

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 12:35 PM

It definitely does give you a mood boost!


Its been really easy to set up!

Ninja post np!
I'm not sure! I've never had an iPhone

nonperson 13-02-2021 12:50 PM

Google says yes! I may be switching back to Apple then.

What new snazzy high tech things does the new phone do then, Beckie?

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 12:59 PM


I haven't quite worked that out yet! Still playing with it!
The camera is sooo much better though!

nonperson 13-02-2021 01:36 PM

Phone cameras are so good nowadays. I realise that makes me sound so old.

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 01:37 PM

They are though!

nonperson 13-02-2021 01:43 PM

I remember when the camera was separate and clipped on to the phone.

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 01:59 PM

I don't remember that!

The only thing is that this phone only came with a charger cable and no plug bit.
So I have to wait until tomorrow to get one!
It's not a usb like everything else is nowadays

nonperson 13-02-2021 02:07 PM

It may have been specific to the phone I had and probably didn't catch on.

That's weird. o.O

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 02:15 PM

Probably not!

It's to reduce the impact on the environment apparently. Which makes no sense if everyone is going to buy one anyway!

nonperson 13-02-2021 02:20 PM

Ah, I had heard about some changes to what's supplied with phones now. I think they assume everyone already has the stuff so that's why they don't send out even more.

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 02:27 PM

Yeah. There's been 3 phones out since I got my last one so maybe the new plug type came out with the last few

nonperson 13-02-2021 02:38 PM

That probably explains it. Things seem to change quickly in the phone world!

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 02:42 PM

They do!
There's always new things being added!

nonperson 13-02-2021 02:56 PM

Or in this case, taken away. =P

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 03:05 PM


Another thing that's been taken away is the headphone socket but I don't use my phone for music so that's fine. I have an ipod for that!

one_step_closer 13-02-2021 03:05 PM

Remember when apple removed the bit where normal headphones connect and everyone was outraged?

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 03:05 PM

Ninja post lindsay!
See above!

one_step_closer 13-02-2021 03:05 PM

Ninja Beckie echo!

one_step_closer 13-02-2021 03:06 PM

And another Ninja! :laugh:

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 03:06 PM

Stop ninja-ing me! :p

one_step_closer 13-02-2021 03:07 PM

But you can still get an extra bit to add to allow you to play music through your phone, saves carrying both your phone and iPod.

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 03:12 PM

I like carrying my ipod. I have quite a big bag so it doesn't take up too much space!
And I find listening to music on the phone takes up too much battery

one_step_closer 13-02-2021 03:14 PM

Are they still making new iPods? I haven't heard about iPods for a long time.

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 03:18 PM

Google tells me the latest version came out in 2019.
So it doesn't seem so!
I guess everyone uses their phone these days
I'm just old fashioned :p

The Worst Witch 13-02-2021 03:45 PM

Apple has integrated everything into one, you can’t get a separate music account for an ipod anymore without paying for the arcade, apple tv and icloud all for a whopping 15 a month! Which is a pain in the arse if you used to use apple music for 5 a month because of being a student

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 03:48 PM

Oh that is a pain!

one_step_closer 13-02-2021 05:26 PM

Apple are greedy. But I do like the phones. I still have a 7.

What's for dinner this evening people?

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 05:30 PM

I'm just going to have some cake for dinner
How about you?

nonperson 13-02-2021 06:13 PM

How's the battery on yours, Lindsay?

Cake is good but not a very wholesome dinner.

I might buy curry as I'm at Asda. Sitting in the car until it gets a bit quieter...

Cacoethes 13-02-2021 06:19 PM

I know.
I just cba to do anything else!

Curry sounds good!
Good luck with your asda trip
