one_step_closer 12-02-2019 08:42 PM

OMG. Can't we just eat food?!

I don't think i've ever had an actual food fight in real life.

zombiehunter 12-02-2019 08:43 PM

I haven't either but the thread was going that way

one_step_closer 12-02-2019 08:45 PM

A real food fight would just be a waste.

Cacoethes 12-02-2019 08:47 PM

We used to have food fights in the adolescent units!
Mainly with jelly

zombiehunter 12-02-2019 08:49 PM

a juevenile delinquent and a legend :-p

Cacoethes 12-02-2019 08:52 PM

Why thank you! :tongue2:

not_so_insig 12-02-2019 11:29 PM

I have had ostrich steak and kangaroo steak before.

Buttons. 13-02-2019 02:13 AM

That's interesting Dawn, how did it taste?

not_so_insig 13-02-2019 03:24 AM

Both were remarkably similar to regular steak.

chinahorse 13-02-2019 03:48 AM

I hate being awake now knowing I have to be up at 6.10am. Darn withdrawal.

Anyone else up?

one_step_closer 13-02-2019 01:04 PM

Poor Lillie. *sends hugs if ok*

How are you all today?

Cacoethes 13-02-2019 02:11 PM

Hope you're all ok

one_step_closer 13-02-2019 04:22 PM

How's your day going Beckie?

Cacoethes 13-02-2019 04:27 PM

Good thanks!
Got to head back now though

Eska 13-02-2019 04:29 PM

Aw no Beckie! At least you know everything is moving in the right direction.

How are you, Lindsay?

Cacoethes 13-02-2019 04:51 PM

That is true!

How are you guys?

Buttons. 13-02-2019 04:53 PM

Glad you've had a good time Beckie. How are you Eska, Lins?

Eska 13-02-2019 05:26 PM

I'm ok. Still getting my head around an appointment I had on Monday! But otherwise good.

not_so_insig 13-02-2019 06:10 PM

I took my cat to the vet before. She had her booster.

nonperson 13-02-2019 06:18 PM

I'm also off to the vets very soon for my cat to have his booster. Exciting stuff.

Buttons. 13-02-2019 06:23 PM

Glad you're managing to explore and process the meeting Eska.

Good luck with the cat boosters!

nonperson 13-02-2019 06:27 PM

When I went last year they discovered he had a hernia that needed operating on so I'm hoping they won't spot anything this time.

Buttons. 13-02-2019 06:29 PM

Sorry you had that experience, I hope nothing shows up today <3

not_so_insig 13-02-2019 06:32 PM

My cat has a cyst according to the vet before. It's harmless and not bothering her but at her grand old age I am glad it's not cancer.

Buttons. 13-02-2019 06:57 PM

That's good that it's not cancerous or anything Dawn.

one_step_closer 13-02-2019 06:59 PM

Cat love.

Cacoethes 13-02-2019 07:00 PM

Hope your cat is ok np!

not_so_insig 13-02-2019 07:00 PM

Thanks Buttons.

one_step_closer 13-02-2019 07:06 PM

I am being pestered to get the cats their dinner at the moment.

Buttons. 13-02-2019 07:14 PM

I feel you Lins. I'm getting pestered by my dog because people don't normally come to my house at this time but a support worker has just come round to put the bin out as I forgot to ask the regular staff in the day. She is over the moon excited by this, and the support worker though lovely is not a dog person. Awkward.

one_step_closer 13-02-2019 07:15 PM

How can anyone resist an excited dog?

Some of the support workers who have been to my house have been terrified of cats which is a shame to see. I really should have put the cats out of the room but didn't think of that at the time!

Buttons. 13-02-2019 07:18 PM

People who aren't dog people I presume? :P

Yeah maybe putting the cats in another room would have been a good idea-however the solutions to problems to come to us after they would have been useful :P

one_step_closer 13-02-2019 07:22 PM

But really how could anyone not be a dog person? Not being a spider person or a bug person is understandable, but cute hyper doggies?

Buttons. 13-02-2019 07:29 PM

I know right? They once sent me someone had a full blown phobia of dogs, and first she wouldn't go in the house then when I had dog by the collar she dashed upstairs and locked herself the staff room, I was just there like okay....this is happening. Thing is with a genuine phobia they should mention it to their employers so they aren't sent out on jobs where people have a dog/cat/whatever the issue is.

Tbf to this support worker she did laugh when Molly leapt over something as she left and said her energy was cute so not all bad.

nonperson 13-02-2019 07:42 PM

Vet trip was all good. =)

one_step_closer 13-02-2019 07:52 PM

Yeah I do wonder why people seem to be sent to houses with cats/dogs etc if they are really afraid.

I'm glad the vet went ok NP. What are you doing with the rest of your evening?

nonperson 13-02-2019 07:57 PM

Probably just watching TV or sleeping on the sofa. =/

one_step_closer 13-02-2019 07:58 PM

Or a bit of both?

Is there anything in particular on TV?

nonperson 13-02-2019 08:02 PM

Well I have a choice of Star Trek or Marvel's Agents of Shield and if I stay awake long enough there's a programme following the Red Arrows that I've been watching.

Buttons. 13-02-2019 08:02 PM

Glad vet went okay NP. I think Lins' suggestion of mixed TV and sofa sleep sounds good.

I'm watching TV and being generally lazy :P

nonperson 13-02-2019 08:05 PM

Laziness is always good. I've been on my feet nearly all day and deserve some laziness now, I think.

one_step_closer 13-02-2019 08:07 PM

I think laziness should be prescribed in some cases.

Embrace laziness everyone.

What are you watching on TV Buttons?

Buttons. 13-02-2019 08:08 PM

I can't say I've been on my feet all day but I've done a fair amount of wheeling, does that count as deserving laziness? :P

Buttons. 13-02-2019 08:08 PM

Catching up with The Dumping Ground because I am Just That Cool
