I enjoy your appearances in the thread Jenna!

I shouldn't have asked about Criminal Minds, now I might have to watch something new! I'm sticking to Greys Anatomy for now I think.

Enjoy your food and your evening then, Dawn.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 06:48 PM

I'm in love with Reid! JJ is cool too though
Yes i have seen season 15!
Got so emotional at the last episode

I could never get into greys anatomy

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 06:50 PM

Can I report Dawn and Jenna for ninja moves when I was typing?

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 06:50 PM

Oh and maybe Beckie now too, although I might let her off.

I'm going to watch Casualty on iplayer this evening then try to find something else to watch then see if I can concentrate on reading before bed.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 07:06 PM

I was almost certain there was a ninja emoji on ryl but apparently there isn't.

not_so_insig 03-07-2022 07:06 PM

There's no Casualty on next Saturday Lindsay btw. Football on instead.

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 07:07 PM

A ninja emoji is an important one to have.

Damn football.

not_so_insig 03-07-2022 07:10 PM

Between football, f1, Wimbledon and racing there is nothing decent on next weekend unless you like sport.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 07:10 PM

You'd think so lindsay!

nonperson 03-07-2022 07:25 PM

I fell asleep and missed pages of talking! =(

Remember the days of having only four TV channels?

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 07:27 PM

I remember when channel 5 launched.

Good sleep?

nonperson 03-07-2022 07:35 PM

So do I.

Not really, it was more about escapism than tiredness.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 07:39 PM

How did we ever survive with only a few channels AND no mobile phones?!?

nonperson 03-07-2022 07:47 PM

There's so much technology and knowledge at people's fingertips nowadays that it's kinda scary. Good, but weird to think we had nothing like this growing up.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 08:00 PM


I often tell Jasmine about things we didn't have when i was a kid.
I also played her the old dial up noise to her and she just looked at me and was like...wtf was that?!

Zurg 03-07-2022 08:24 PM

I was going to watch a drama Series tonight but SOMEONE has decided that shooting people in a mall in copenhagen was much more important and now my channels are overtaken by armed police people and semi hysteric news reporters having a crisis.
First of all, i do NOT like random people who carry guns and shoots at other people!!!
Second of all, i ****ing hate when the tv tries to sell us something as a terrorist attack because a lot of very stupid people are gonna be all racist afterwards!!!
Third, **** this world!!! I'm off to Hogwarts!!,

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 08:26 PM

Omg that's awful! And terrifying!
Yes the terrorist attack thing annoys me too.
I will join you at hogwarts i think

Zurg 03-07-2022 08:34 PM

I am crazy but seriously, this world is Way TOO crazy for me sometimes!!!!
We'll have our second childhoods at Hogwarts then :D

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 08:35 PM

Can relate

I'm training some kid who was born in 2001 wtf and she didn't know how to use a normal landline phone.

Argh, oh gosh Zurg, that's horrible :(

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 09:07 PM

It wasn't that emoji that i was thinking of jenna! I was certain there was a smaller one!
But a lot of weird things have been happening today so i have probably completely made that up!

That's mental! Who doesn't know how to use a landline?!

Pi.R^2 03-07-2022 09:27 PM

I assume it wasn't this one either but still, it's fun: :ninjabanana:

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 09:29 PM

It was not but i am very much enjoying it!

Cacoethes 04-07-2022 08:14 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 04-07-2022 12:17 PM

Good morning :)

How are you?

one_step_closer 04-07-2022 03:01 PM

Afternoon everyone, how are your days going?

not_so_insig 04-07-2022 03:18 PM

I am annoyed. I had planned to go to the city but I woke up too late as one of the places I wanted to go shuts at 3. Between bus times and the time it takes to walk there (my local city is like a donut) it would have been shut by the time I got there. I cant go tomorrow as one of the places shuts on a Tuesday plus I have tesco and my cpn.

one_step_closer 04-07-2022 03:26 PM

That's annoying, Dawn. Will you be able to fit it in on another day this week?

not_so_insig 04-07-2022 03:49 PM

No i doubt it. I might have an parcel coming on Wednesday via courier and I have my hearing voices group on Thursday. My hearing voices group finishes just before 3 and once again between buses means I won't have time to go before since the place i want to go to is only open between 12 and 3. My hearing voices group starts at just before 1 but it can take as long as twenty minutes to actually get in the building (you have to be buzzed in and the staff are very slow at doing so).

tamobhuuta 04-07-2022 05:08 PM

How frustrating.

I had a bath but my mum says I mustn't again because I've had a seizure.

not_so_insig 04-07-2022 05:13 PM

Oh dear tamobhuuta hope you're ok?

one_step_closer 04-07-2022 06:17 PM

Do baths trigger seizures for you Tamo? I hope you're doing ok.

Better luck next week then, Dawn.

Cacoethes 04-07-2022 07:12 PM

Baths are not good for people with seizures because if you happen to have a seizure in the bath, you will drown.

Hello everyone!

not_so_insig 04-07-2022 08:30 PM

Thanks for explaining Beckie.

I managed to cook my tea and do my dishes so I feel as though I have achieved something today.

Cacoethes 04-07-2022 08:37 PM

Well done Dawn :)

Jasmine is at her first ever concert! One of my brother's has taken her. Olivia rodrigo who she is OBSESSED with!
I got the tickets for her birthday which is next week.
Can't believe i have a nearly 10 year old! *is old*

tamobhuuta 04-07-2022 08:52 PM

Sorry, I meant I have had a seizure, a while ago, but if you have had even one you're not meant to risk it. I'm ok, I didn't have a seizure in the bath :)

Cacoethes 05-07-2022 07:19 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 05-07-2022 10:51 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 05-07-2022 11:00 AM

Hey tamo
I'm ok thanks.
Just waiting for tattoo/piercing place to open!
Got a full day tattoo and piercing check!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-07-2022 11:08 AM

I hope everything is OK. I'm ok. I'm hoping my dad will make a pot of tea in a minute.

Cacoethes 05-07-2022 11:10 AM


That would be nice!

tamobhuuta 05-07-2022 12:08 PM

We had tea and I've had breakfast. Next I'm going to do the dishes.

one_step_closer 05-07-2022 12:54 PM

Just popping in to say hi and hope everyones having a good day. I need to leave for the gym group although no one has phoned to do the covid questions so I'll need to phone them and see if the group is on.

not_so_insig 05-07-2022 01:42 PM

I hope you can get through to someone Lindsay.

I have a busy day today. Tesco, my cpn and my parents are visiting today. Thankfully not all at once. I think I am going to be peopled out!

one_step_closer 05-07-2022 02:08 PM

I got through to someone who knew who was taking the group and said sorry they didn't call, they're really short staffed. They said they'd pass on that I was coming to the group. I didn't make it though. It's hard being outside and especially waiting on a bus. I was really anxious and had lots going on inside my head and scary things in this world and the other word so I had to come home. I'm a failure. I phoned the office to say I actually couldn't come. I hope the person who was taking the group doesn't phone me. I'm being battered from all sides and inside and outside.

I hope everything goes well for you Dawn and you can have some time away from people when everything is done.

tamobhuuta 05-07-2022 02:19 PM

Sorry you had such a hard time osc. Take care of yourself this afternoon.

I hope your day goes well insig.

one_step_closer 05-07-2022 02:32 PM

Thanks Tamo.

How are you getting on?

not_so_insig 05-07-2022 03:19 PM

Thankfully tesco came early in the hour so I have put everything away now. I got Lorraine's Christmas present too today. I know it's early but I was scared that by the time December came around they wouldn't have the ideal gift in stock. I got a bee themed coffee cup and a honeycomb shaped memo board. She likes bees and insects so I know that she will like it.

Thanks tamobhuuta and Lindsay. I have about an hour before my cpn comes (that's if she's not late) so I can relax.
