I started listening to it on audio book many years ago and got so confused and had to keep rewinding chapters that I finally gave up!

My original description was "bored and confused to death" but I thought that was in appropriate ;-) if not wholy inaccurate!

shadow-light 16-04-2021 09:10 AM

ye some books are better in audio than others, Silmarillion is not one of the good ones for that format

nonperson 16-04-2021 09:34 AM

I think my mum has a paper copy of it. I should ask to borrow it and try again.

Another thing audiobooks are good for is the pronunciation of some of the names though.

How're you this morning, Hazel? (Is it ok to use your name on the forums?)

shadow-light 16-04-2021 09:46 AM

oh, yes they are great for pronunciation :P to be honest I don't do much fiction. Most of my audiobooks are science or psychology based so the pronunciation aspect is great



Ye I'm ok with name being used. I'm not too bad today, got awful reflux, but otherwise ok. How are you?

nonperson 16-04-2021 10:01 AM

Glad you're ok despite the reflux. =/

I'm alright... feel a bit rough but I've got until 3pm to build up to being a functioning human being.

Any plans for today?

shadow-light 16-04-2021 10:22 AM

got a job centre phonecall at 11, currently all my energy is going on not freaking out over that :laugh: then got to go food shopping this afternoon. So nothing interesting



What you got happening at 3 (if it's ok to ask)?

nonperson 16-04-2021 10:41 AM

Eep, good luck with the phone call. Food shopping is interesting depending on what you buy. =P

Of course it's ok to ask - work is happening at 3... =(

tamobhuuta 16-04-2021 10:52 AM

Hi np and shadow. My news is that I drooled a lot in my sleep. Attractive I know.

I'm currently reading one paperback and one ebook.

Cacoethes 16-04-2021 11:03 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 16-04-2021 11:04 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 16-04-2021 11:26 AM

I'm ok thanks.
Good news about my blood tests. Sodium is back up so i can have my drinks back!
Though of course the doctor hasn't handed that over so the staff don't know and now the doctor is in a meeting :eyeroll:

tamobhuuta 16-04-2021 11:28 AM

I hope the doctor passes that over.
Any plans?

shadow-light 16-04-2021 11:37 AM

Job centre meant to call at 11... it's now 11.37 and no call... I honestly think they are trying to anxiety me to death

shadow-light 16-04-2021 11:38 AM

Yay for sodium levels going back up

Cacoethes 16-04-2021 11:42 AM

No plans. Just to get dressed but unfortunately my clothes are all in the room that the doctors are having the meeting in. Argh!

That's awful Hazel! I'm not surprised you're anxious!

shadow-light 16-04-2021 12:02 PM

They called... 52 mins late, then got angry that I was crying making me cry more... they have rearranged appointment for monday...

Honestly this is more stressful than having a job... which I currently can't do because it stresses me too much :sigh:

.

Well that's awkward of them to take your clothing hostage with their meeting! At least you might get drinks back post meeting

Cacoethes 16-04-2021 12:46 PM

That sounds horrific. I'm sorry you had to go through that

I have now got dressed and have my drinks back!

shadow-light 16-04-2021 12:49 PM

yay for clothing and drinks!



out of context that sounds iteresting...

Cacoethes 16-04-2021 12:58 PM

Haha! It does indeed

tamobhuuta 16-04-2021 01:31 PM

I'm glad you have your stuff back Cacoethes.

Sorry you had a stressful call shadow.

Cacoethes 16-04-2021 01:43 PM

Thanks tamo

Beatrice Callan 16-04-2021 02:11 PM

Today, cooking helped me to my mind, surprisingly. I was in the kitchen, listening to music and somehow imperceptibly cooked meat, pie, made grilled vegetables for breakfast. You can also get distracted by everyday things.

tamobhuuta 16-04-2021 02:13 PM

Well done Beatrice :) any plans for the rest of the day?

Cacoethes 16-04-2021 02:15 PM

That's great Beatrice :)

nonperson 17-04-2021 09:56 AM

Quiet here yesterday afternoon...

How's everyone this morning?

tamobhuuta 17-04-2021 10:23 AM

Hi np, how are you? Any plans for today?

nonperson 17-04-2021 10:35 AM

Hey Tamo. I'm all full of anxiety today, ugh. The only plan for today is work later.

How about you?

tamobhuuta 17-04-2021 10:40 AM

Urgh, work.

I really need a shower. It's a bad sign when you can't remember the last time you showered.

shadow-light 17-04-2021 10:54 AM

Morning all.

nonperson 17-04-2021 10:58 AM

Yes that's not so good, Tamo! Hope you can manage to get it done. I should also go get clean and make myself presentable.

Morning Hazel. How are you?

shadow-light 17-04-2021 11:03 AM

I'm going to go with meh, defently meh today

How are you?

nonperson 17-04-2021 11:08 AM

Anything that will help the mehness?

I'll go with meh too heh.

Cacoethes 17-04-2021 12:05 PM

Afternoon everyone
I've only just woken up

nonperson 17-04-2021 01:01 PM

Afternoon. Was it a good sleep?

tamobhuuta 17-04-2021 01:13 PM

I showered, I even washed my hair!

nonperson 17-04-2021 01:37 PM

Woo, on a roll today Tamo. Well done. =)

tamobhuuta 17-04-2021 01:55 PM

How's your day going?

not_so_insig 17-04-2021 05:16 PM

Quiet in here today! Did anyone watch the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral?

nonperson 17-04-2021 05:44 PM

My day is being covered by the news, lol.

I haven't watched it yet. Ironically I'll have to see it on catch up later this evening.

tamobhuuta 18-04-2021 10:12 AM

No, I didn't watch it, how was it?

I slept really well, I've been awake 25 minutes!

nonperson 18-04-2021 10:29 AM

Morning. Glad you slept well, tamo.

It was very simple (compared to usual royal events), with so many personal touches from the Duke himself. Thought the Landrover was genius. Cried so hard when his carriage ponies appeared and took their place alongside the military. =|

Cacoethes 18-04-2021 10:41 AM

Morning guys

I didn't watch the funeral.
I'm not really bothered with the royal family

nonperson 18-04-2021 10:52 AM

Many people aren't! I never used to pay any attention but can't help but be interested in it all now seeing as they're linked so closely with my work.

How're you, Beckie?

tamobhuuta 18-04-2021 10:55 AM

What's your weather like? We've got beautiful sunshine.

nonperson 18-04-2021 10:59 AM

It is glorious sunshine here too!

Cacoethes 18-04-2021 11:01 AM

That makes sense np

I'm blah. Just been forced into the shower by a nurse as apparently i really need to shower. Rude!

It's sunny here too!

nonperson 18-04-2021 11:08 AM

Sorry you're blah. =(

That is very rude. Do you feel better for being clean though?

tamobhuuta 18-04-2021 11:08 AM

I'm glad you are clean Cacoethes!

Cacoethes 18-04-2021 11:09 AM

Thanks.
She did have a point. And yes i do feel better being clean!

Do you have any plans today?

Ninja post tamo!
Thank you :)

nonperson 18-04-2021 11:15 AM

My only plan is work again later. Last weird evening shift though then things will go back to normal. Got a feeling it's going to be a busy one today though.

Will you get outside for a fresh air/sunshine break?
