The Chamber of Secrets. It's what came on next on the NowTV Harry Potter channel. =D

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 12:57 PM

Tbh that's my least favourite harry potter but I still really like it!

nonperson 29-12-2019 01:05 PM

It's my least favourite book, but the film is worth watching for Gilderoy Lockhart!

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 01:13 PM

Yes Lockhart is funny!

I've just semi-impulsively booked a surprise city break for February.
They gave me 50 off if I booked before the 31st so how could I not?? :p

nonperson 29-12-2019 01:31 PM

Nice discount. You don't find out where until you get to the airport?

I'm also attempting to organise my February holiday.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 01:36 PM

Yep! So much fun
Just hope it's Gatwick airport as the train from here goes straight there!
It's going to be either stansted or gatwick

Where are you off to?

nonperson 29-12-2019 01:46 PM

Wow, even the airport is a surprise then!

Las Vegas/California for my sister's wedding.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 01:51 PM

Yep! You can choose from a selection of airports but I'm lucky enough that all the London ones are a reasonable journey from me. And I live a 5 minute walk away from the train station so it's all good!

Ooo that's exciting!

one_step_closer 29-12-2019 02:00 PM

Can I fit in both of your suitcases?

nonperson 29-12-2019 02:04 PM

Ah, good location to be then, Beckie. I'm right next to Heathrow so it's just a short taxi ride for me.

You can, Lindsay! I'm really freaking out about it all and could do with some moral support in my suitcase. =P

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 02:08 PM

Of course you can lindsay!

Yep I'm in a good location
Being next to heathrow sounds handy

nonperson 29-12-2019 02:13 PM

Handy if you like travelling. I've never been there yet! I like watching the planes though.

one_step_closer 29-12-2019 02:13 PM

I'll practice my soothing words and will become a talking suitcase!

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 02:21 PM

I'd never be at home if I had the money go travel all the time so being next to an airport would be ideal for me!

Just imagining a talking suitcase at an airport now

one_step_closer 29-12-2019 02:24 PM

What would a suitcase say if it could actually talk? (With its zip mouth).

nonperson 29-12-2019 02:25 PM

Hah yeah, instant detainment.

nonperson 29-12-2019 02:26 PM

It would talk about all its travel experiences! And how roughly it's treated by the airport staff.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 02:33 PM

It would probably say 'stop dragging me around!!!'

one_step_closer 29-12-2019 03:01 PM

Poor suitcase.

What's everyone getting up to this afternoon?

nonperson 29-12-2019 03:05 PM

Lots of sitting... Need to go back to work quickly later though.

What're you up to?

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 03:08 PM

I'm just watching Scrubs

What about you lindsay?

one_step_closer 29-12-2019 03:20 PM

Will you be ok to go back to work NP?

I've never seen Scrubs.

I'm wasting my money buying dvds online because I have a cat on my lap but will need to get up soon.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 03:32 PM

How have you never seen scrubs?!

Can't move a cat that's sat on you.
It's the law.
Which dvds have you bought?

nonperson 29-12-2019 03:38 PM

Yeah, I'll be ok. Will just take it slow... Only have to lock up and leave so I won't be there long.

I've seen bits of Scrubs... and also have a cat on my lap.

Prisoner of Azkaban time now. =D

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 04:28 PM

Must be nice to have cats on laps!
Even if it does mean you can't move

Prisoner of azkaban is a good one

I'm watching Indiana Jones now. Its on BBC one

one_step_closer 29-12-2019 04:33 PM

I haven't seen most TV stuff that other people watch!

I bought Jeepers Creepers 3, Carrie 2, and Flatliners (the most recent version).

I have never seen Indiana Jones either. When I worked in Blockbuster one of the staff told me to watch one but I didn't get very far into it.

nonperson 29-12-2019 04:38 PM

I also don't think I've seen most things that other people watch either. Everyone watches different things and there's so much choice out there.

Indiana Jones is amazing! I think I was watching the Temple of Doom yesterday on BBC?

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 04:45 PM

We used to watch Jeepers Creepers all the time in one of the adolescent units I was in! Not seen the third one though.
And I love flatliners.

Indiana jones and the last crusade is on now.
It's nearly finished though

one_step_closer 29-12-2019 04:48 PM

Why do I imagine a hamster when I think of Indiana Jones?

nonperson 29-12-2019 04:50 PM

Is it because of the giant stone ball that chases him down that tunnel?

Kinda like a hamster ball, maybe?

Buttons. 29-12-2019 04:56 PM

That is an odd association Lins!

Had great time finding the park with the dog today though getting there is a bit of an arse wheelchair wise. Was well worth it when got there though she enjoyed herself so much and it made me happy to watch her.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 04:56 PM

Not a clue lindsay!

Monsters university is on now

Ninja Buttons!
Glad the dog enjoyed herself!

one_step_closer 29-12-2019 05:43 PM

I think I've seen a t-shirt with an Indiana Jones mouse on it.

I'm glad your dog had a happy, Buttons. :-)

I don't know how you can stand to have the TV on so much Beckie.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 05:45 PM

I don't really watch the TV that much but I need to have the background noise or my head goes mental!

one_step_closer 29-12-2019 05:46 PM

Constant background noise and my head goes mental! We are all different. :-)

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 05:49 PM

Different things work for different people!

tamobhuuta 29-12-2019 06:32 PM

I like sound on in the background, sometimes TV, music or an audiobook.

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 06:53 PM

I've never actually listened to an audiobook. I don't think I'd be able to concentrate on one.
And radio makes me paranoid for some reason

Shirayuki 29-12-2019 08:33 PM

hi guys, whats up?

Cacoethes 29-12-2019 08:46 PM

How are you?

Indigo. 29-12-2019 09:46 PM

Hi all!

I don't like Indiana Jones, never did. But I hope you've enjoyed it Beckie(and NP). I haven't seen most TV most people have seen though!

Yay for new dvds Lindsay.

Glad you found the park Buttons, sounds like you had a good time.

hi shirayuki :)

not_so_insig 29-12-2019 09:47 PM

Hello all. I have been to the seaside. I went to boots and bought quite a few of next year's Christmas presents. Then went to a pub on the way home for a drink. I had a pint of local lager (same lager as I bought for Lorraine).

not_so_insig 29-12-2019 09:48 PM

Also my stomach ache is better than this morning.

chinahorse 29-12-2019 09:53 PM

Glad your belly is better Dawn.

The shop only had posh filtered milk. Cost me an arm and a leg.

tamobhuuta 29-12-2019 10:00 PM

I'm glad your stomach feels better insig x

Buttons. 29-12-2019 10:21 PM

Sounds like a good day Dawn and glad your stomach is better.

I’ve never seen Indiana Jones.

Did have a good time at park All thanks :)

Ouch for expensive milk Lillie.

I’ve done loads of sorting out this afternoon/evening and now rewarding myself with Peter Kay doc and chocolate cake <3

chinahorse 29-12-2019 10:48 PM

Sounds like a perfect way to reward yourself buttons.

nonperson 30-12-2019 09:13 AM

Oh my goodness.

I'm going to make a group New Years resolution for you all - watch Indiana Jones!

tamobhuuta 30-12-2019 09:43 AM

No thanks, I watched one years ago, it was dull.

chinahorse 30-12-2019 10:14 AM

Morning all :)
