I need to get a hair mask.
They're supposed to be really good for your hair!

tamobhuuta 03-01-2022 02:13 PM

My hair gets pretty dry, I'm hoping the cut and mask will help.

Cacoethes 03-01-2022 02:17 PM

It should help

My hair isn't in the best condition because of all the bleach and dye over the years!

one_step_closer 03-01-2022 03:54 PM

I hope you're loving your hair cut Tamo.

I think I need to get a trim to tidy up the split ends but the hairdresser shows me how much they'd have to take off and it's not much so I usually tell them to take some more off and I got to having hair halfway down my back to it being at my shoulders. I've never dyed my hair, don't know what I'm going to do when I get grey hair!

Cacoethes 03-01-2022 03:55 PM

Embrace the grey hair lindsay!

one_step_closer 03-01-2022 03:57 PM

I'm not very good with change but at the same time I wouldn't want to dye it. Why does grey hair have to be a thing?! What do you think you'll do when you get grey hair?

Cacoethes 03-01-2022 04:05 PM

I probably wouldn't even notice if I got grey hair because I dye it bright colours every few months!

not_so_insig 03-01-2022 04:23 PM

I have the occasional grey hair but tbh I just pull it out.

Cacoethes 03-01-2022 04:49 PM

Fair enough

one_step_closer 03-01-2022 06:01 PM

But there might be an invasion of grey hair at some point.

You could embrace the gray and show your wisdom :P

one_step_closer 03-01-2022 06:05 PM

Maybe I will be wise by the time I get grey hair.

How are you Shira?

Cacoethes 03-01-2022 06:14 PM

I think so!

Shirayuki 03-01-2022 06:44 PM

You already are very wise! :D

I'm alright, you?

nonperson 03-01-2022 11:53 PM

Embrace the grey. Mine is probably about 50/50 grey and dark brown now and there should be absolutely no pressure to dye it. So many hairdressers have asked me if I wanted to, like it is expected. I get really annoyed that people think they have to dye it or that going grey, especially when young, is bad! I can't remember if I posted the pics I took of mine on here or not?

YellowCalx 04-01-2022 12:24 AM

I have a rather dramatic grey streak in my fringe which I only found recently. I'm wearing it as a mark of distinction.

nonperson 04-01-2022 12:40 AM

You should! =)

Also hi Shira! (Thought I posted that before, clearly didn't)

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 09:03 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 04-01-2022 12:19 PM

You're first again Cacoethes! How are you?

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 12:29 PM

I am! Lol
I'm not great.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 04-01-2022 12:35 PM

Sorry to hear that :( is there anything that would help?

I am ok, just catching up with RYL with a cup of coffee.

Can I PM you about your R/V?

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 12:38 PM

I just need the church to respond to my email.
I'm hoping they can help

Nice :)

Yes you can

tamobhuuta 04-01-2022 02:41 PM

How's the covid treating you?

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 02:48 PM

I'm completely fine now thanks
I did a lateral flow test today and the line is so faint you can barely see it

tamobhuuta 04-01-2022 02:57 PM

That's good :) when are you going back to work?

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 03:03 PM

I'm really looking forward to being around people again!

one_step_closer 04-01-2022 03:38 PM

Afternoon everyone. How are your days going?

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 03:40 PM

Hey lindsay

How are you?

one_step_closer 04-01-2022 03:42 PM

Hi Beckie. Do you think you'll be ok at work? I'm glad you're better now.

I'm a jumbled mix of negative emotions.

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 03:46 PM

I hope so

Sorry to hear that lindsay
Have you been up to much today?

one_step_closer 04-01-2022 03:50 PM

Good luck.

I've not done much, my to do list isn't that long for today. I was supposed to hoover but convinced myself that hoovering isn't needed right now. I finished a book so I hope I can get into another one. Really needing to reply to pen pals but it's hard to focus on.

Have you done anything nice since it sounds like you need some comfort/positivity in your life right now?

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 04:02 PM


Hoovering is effort.
Was it a good book?
I can imagine replying to pen pals is very difficult to focus on
I hope you manage to get some writing done

I have done nothing except watch CSI new york.
I need to shower at some point.

one_step_closer 04-01-2022 04:21 PM

The book was by one of my favourite authors but it wasn't as good as some of her other ones.

TV and or/reading can be good for ignoring other things. Is it CSI repeats you're watching. I hope you can find the motivation to shower and feel nice and clean and relaxed afterwards.

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 04:23 PM

That's a shame

That's true..
It is repeats. But I hadn't seen most of them.
Thanks. I have to shower really because of work tomorrow and my hair is really gross

one_step_closer 04-01-2022 04:25 PM

Does yucky hair not really annoy you? I hate the feeling so that means I wash my hair every second day. I don't have a shower though which is bad.

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 04:34 PM

But the last few weeks I just don't care about anything

I hate washing my hair without having a shower
I do it sometimes though
I just find it less effort to have a shower for some reason

tamobhuuta 04-01-2022 05:04 PM

Hi osc :)

one_step_closer 04-01-2022 05:51 PM

It probably is less effort.

Hi Tamo, how are you?

tamobhuuta 04-01-2022 07:06 PM

I'm ok. I've done everything on my coping list but I'm not feeling great. But I am ok really :)

Are you up to much this evening?

Cacoethes 04-01-2022 09:49 PM

I've just watched the most recent 2 episodes of casualty with my friend (not physically together, just at the same time and text about it)
And OMG i am so stressed out!!!

shadow-light 05-01-2022 09:44 AM

How are people doing?

I'm not usually online this early but recently my ability yo sleep has vanished so through would see if any morning types were about

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 09:51 AM

I'm about!

shadow-light 05-01-2022 10:09 AM

Yay not only one here

How's the covid? You still in isolation times or you out now? Thinking mathematically you gain freedom around nowish or tomorrowish

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 10:22 AM

Yep today I am free!

shadow-light 05-01-2022 10:31 AM


That's good. Speaking as someone who's been not far off trapped inside for 2 months now, it sucks.

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 10:42 AM

It really does suck!

Do you have any plans for the day?

shadow-light 05-01-2022 10:46 AM

Not really... got a zoom meeting at 6pm, but other than that nothing. OK, to be fair there's MOUNTAINS of housework, but I don't see any of it getting done

You up to much?

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 10:51 AM

I know that feeling!

I've got work from 12-6

I'm really upset because my new daith piercing fell out and i can't get it back in!
Going to have to go to the piercing place tomorrow and hope it hasn't closed up!

shadow-light 05-01-2022 10:52 AM

I have no idea what a daith is :laugh:

Cacoethes 05-01-2022 10:54 AM

Haha! Neither do I tbh. That's why I can't get it back in, because I can't remember the bit of the ear it goes in XD
All I know is It's an inside bit. So you can't really see it in the mirror.
