Ah boo to Easter activities.

You could just test daily and not self isolate, Dawn?

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 12:41 PM

Yep boo to easter activities!!!
But one good thing about easter is that there are good films on tv!

nonperson 17-04-2022 12:49 PM

I haven't checked the tv schedule. What's on?

I think Dune is on Now tv... now. I need to watch that.

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 12:58 PM

I'm watching madagascar 3 at the moment!

Oooh i haven't seen that but it's meant to be good!

one_step_closer 17-04-2022 01:49 PM

Afternoon everyone. I hope you can find things to occupy yourself with, Beckie.

Enjoy your egg Tamo. Does anyone else have an egg?

Covid needs to bugger off.

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 01:53 PM

Hey lindsay!
I thought of something to do upstairs but i can't for the life of me remember what!!!
I'm sure i was going to sort something out or something? idk!

I have no egg :(

one_step_closer 17-04-2022 01:58 PM

Oh dear, hopefully it'll come back to you!

Aww, you can't have no egg, that's sad. I bought myself one and then my brother sent me one. I'm trying to eat less snacks and eat healthier so that's not really good.

Did you finish watching Madagascar 3?

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 02:10 PM

I hope so!
That was nice of your brother!
For me it was either top up gas or get an egg!
Probably should have just got an egg because the gas card didn't work!

It's still on!
Can't really focus so I'm only really half watching it!

Zurg 17-04-2022 02:20 PM

Happy Easter everyone :-)

How many Madagascar movies did they even make?? I am unsure what number is the newest…..

I have no egg but i have snoeffels. I'm absolutely sorted!!!!!

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 02:26 PM

Happy Easter zurg!

I believe there are only 3!

I don't know what they are but enjoy!

nonperson 17-04-2022 03:43 PM

I want to know how to pronounce that because I'm sure "snowfulls" is not right.

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 04:02 PM

I tried to google but even google doesn't know what they are!!!
Zurg, come back and educate us!

Zurg 17-04-2022 04:29 PM

It is a kind of cake :D
Rumour has it that it is made the same Way as the troeffel, which is a very similar cake. Basically, a troeffel is a round cake made out of all sorts of old cakes that are just mashed together to form a new cake!!! Sounds disgusting but it's quite a marvellous invention. They are seriously tasty!!!! Sometimes a bit of rum essence is added for dramatic effect ;-)

I had a very tiny visitor some weeks ago and she devoured almost my entire stash of snoeffels in one day. I was both horrified and quite amazed!!!

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 04:31 PM

Oohh that sounds interesting!!!

Zurg 17-04-2022 04:39 PM

The snoeffel!!! :woot:

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 04:40 PM

They look so good!

one_step_closer 17-04-2022 04:49 PM

They look good, enjoy. :-D

Wha's everyone up to for the rest of the day/evening/night.

I hope you have a better sleep Beckie.

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 04:55 PM

I am about to eat some tomato soup! And watching the Goldbergs.

How about you?

Thank you :-D

one_step_closer 17-04-2022 05:00 PM

Bread with your soup?

I'm going to feed Crookshanks and clean all his bowls and mats then try and read then watch TV.

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 05:07 PM

Yes there was bread! But i realised i am out of butter so just plain bread which isn't AS good but still good!

Sound's like a good plan lindsay!
No worries!

one_step_closer 17-04-2022 05:12 PM

It's mostly my normal routine but sometimes it doesn't go to plan.

Do you use actual butter? I use light olive spread which is supposed to be better for you. Plus it's spreadable unlike the butters that pretend to be spreadable.

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 05:16 PM

I know the feeling!

Nah i use like flora light or something!
Can't be dealing with a solid block of butter!

nonperson 17-04-2022 07:20 PM

Mmm butter.

I've run out of energy and am watching Mrs Doubtfire instead of making a curry and cleaning the kitchen.

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 07:24 PM

I started to watch mrs doubtfire but I've watched it recently so I'm watching dr who instead!
Well, half watching! Can't focus! Lol
Jurassic park: fallen kingdom.is on too. I like that also!

nonperson 17-04-2022 07:44 PM

I'm not really watching, it's on in the background while I browse the web.

Which Doctor Who?

I don't think I've seen that Jurassic Park one.

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 07:46 PM

That's basically what i do all day lol!

The latest one!

I like all the jurassic park films! Though it is a bit ridiculous!

nonperson 17-04-2022 08:27 PM

I love the Jurassic park music. I started learning it on piano.

Is there an Easter special? Or new series? I'm pretty sure I'm not up to date with Doctor Who at the moment.

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 08:32 PM

That's awesome!

New series maybe?
Idk. I don't keep up with it! Especially as i haven't had terrestrial tv for 3 months so i don't know what's current!
But it was definitely a brand new episode!

Zurg 17-04-2022 08:43 PM

I'd sooo move to the uk for the sole purpose of being able to watch doctor who >_>

Cacoethes 17-04-2022 08:48 PM

Can you not get it where you are?! 0_o

Zurg 18-04-2022 07:53 AM

Nah Beckie, for some reason no one thinks the danish people should be allowed to watch doctor who. And the various streaming platforms don't have the new shows. So i am still stuck with Peter Capaldi while everyone has moved on to Jodie Whittaker years ago. Not that Peter isn't great but it'd be nice to catch up with the new doctor and her shenanigans….

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 08:57 AM

Oh no! That's so sad! :(

nonperson 18-04-2022 09:20 AM

You're not missing much with the new ones, Zurg. They're ok but it's had its heyday. I'd rather watch the earlier series.

Morning all.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 09:36 AM

Yes the earlier series' were better tbh!

Morning np!
How are you?

nonperson 18-04-2022 09:55 AM

I'm... kinda anxious and dunno what to do with myself. Got a friend I haven't seen for years turning up some time today but I don't know when. So I need to shower and do some washing up and maybe go on the exercise bike for a bit to work out the anxiety or something.

Argh! :crazy:

How're you? Did you sleep better last night?

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 09:59 AM

I hope you have a nice time!
I understand being anxious though!

I'm good thanks!
I slept much better :)
Woke up quite a few times but was able to get back to sleep luckily!

Zurg 18-04-2022 10:14 AM

Yay for a friend visiting!! Though it's always a bit anxiety inducing when it's someone you haven't seen for a while…. But i'm sure you'll both have a great time NP :-)

Better sleep sounds really good Beckie. I hope it'll last!!!

I've had a shower. And now i am pondering what to do with this day and i can already feel my mood slipping because i have no chores…. I am not good at just sitting around and being bored. But i'm also tired and don't really want to do anything…. I can't win!!!

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 10:27 AM

Thank you zurg!

Well done for showering!
Hmm that is a predicament!
I totally get that feeling.

tamobhuuta 18-04-2022 11:06 AM

Hello guys :) I just woke up

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 11:10 AM

Hey tamo!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 18-04-2022 11:53 AM

I'm ok, took zopiclone and then got to sleep.
My big sister is coming round.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 11:55 AM

I hope you have a nice time :)

I am suddenly desperate to get my tongue pierced again lol

tamobhuuta 18-04-2022 12:00 PM

Again? I don't have any piercings.

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 12:11 PM

I've had it done twice.
But i kept accidentally swallowing the ball/bars!
I'm addicted to piercings!

one_step_closer 18-04-2022 01:17 PM

I hope you have a nice time with your friend NP and you can find a way to relax.

I'm glad you slept better Beckie. Swallowing piercings doesn't sound like a nice experience!

I know what you mean about needing to be doing things Kat. Can you start doing something really small and see if you feel less tired? Do you have hobbies?

I hope you enjoy your time with your big sister Tamo.

not_so_insig 18-04-2022 01:26 PM

Hello all. My postcard to Russia arrived today. I wasn't expecting it to arrive considering what's happening. But it took it's usual time.

one_step_closer 18-04-2022 01:32 PM

That's good Dawn. Have you received any postcards recently?

Cacoethes 18-04-2022 01:36 PM

Thanks lindsay!
It's not nice! Lol

How are you?

not_so_insig 18-04-2022 02:06 PM

I received two postcards on Saturday. One from Czech Republic and one from Finland Lindsay.
