They aren't even that long!
Like people have natural nails the length i have the gel extensions at!

Sorry to hear that lindsay.
Can you think of anything nice you can do for yourself?

one_step_closer 29-04-2022 04:57 PM

Oh yeah I saw on Fb.

I can't think of anything nice to do for myself.

What will you be doing with your evening?

Cacoethes 29-04-2022 05:10 PM

It doesn't have to be something big. Maybe like making a hot chocolate for example? Doesn't have to be that, that's just something that i do!

Crisis will be coming soon then I'll have a shower. Put my washing away and change my bed sheets.
That's about it!

one_step_closer 29-04-2022 05:21 PM

I can't even think of a tiny thing. It doesn't matter.

That's a lot to be getting on with. I hope you have a nice evening and sleep well.

Cacoethes 29-04-2022 05:44 PM

Thank you :)
Sleep has been hard lately.
Need to get up early tomorrow!
Mum.and step dad are.going to a wedding so i need to get there before 10:30
And it takes about 2 hours altogether to get there. Assuming buses are on time!

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 06:37 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 30-04-2022 07:33 AM

Morning Beckie :-)

Are you on the road by now????

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 07:37 AM


Yep on the bus! Bright and early!

not_so_insig 30-04-2022 10:03 AM

Morning all.

tamobhuuta 30-04-2022 11:11 AM

Hi people :)

Zurg 30-04-2022 01:34 PM

Hi Dawn and Tamo :-)

What have you been up to today??

one_step_closer 30-04-2022 01:42 PM

Hi everyone, how are you all today?

not_so_insig 30-04-2022 02:02 PM

Hello everyone. I have been catching up on telly.

one_step_closer 30-04-2022 02:03 PM

What have you been watching, Dawn?

not_so_insig 30-04-2022 02:45 PM

Classic Coronation Street, a programme about a lighthouses, the Yorkshire Vet Lindsay.

Zurg 30-04-2022 03:47 PM

I love shows about vets. Or rather, i love the animals in the shows about vets ;-)

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 03:58 PM

Hey everyone.
My brother gave me a lift ALL the way home!
So I'm back early!

one_step_closer 30-04-2022 04:31 PM

Did you enjoy your day Beckie?

Animals are great :-D do you have any pets Kat?

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 04:40 PM

I did thanks!

Animals are great

one_step_closer 30-04-2022 04:47 PM

Do you have a favourite animal Beckie? I read a book about animal heroes once and they were so brave.

Zurg 30-04-2022 05:09 PM

Yay Beckie!!! A lift is always nice :D

I do have pets, Lindsay. 2 zebra finches, 1 canary, a giant african landsnail and an auarium with tiny fish, shrimps and snails. I am currently planning to get a bunny. It might be a while still, i need to get an awful lot of different stuff in preparation. I just want a fluffy pal <3

one_step_closer 30-04-2022 05:22 PM

Wow, you could open to the public to see all your animals. A bunny would be great too.

On a different note, we were talking about sending you some UK snacks. Well I'd be up for it anyway. If this sounds good to you would you be ok with giving one of us your address?

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 05:29 PM

Horses are my favourite animal! Always has been!

Your pets sound cool zurg!

I'd be up for that too! YOU NEED GINGER BISCUITS!!!

Zurg 30-04-2022 07:22 PM


Sure, i'd be okay with giving you my address. I doubt any of you would suddenly show up unannounced but even if you do, i'll ask you in for coffee :-)

When i lived in supported housing, the other people i lived with had a standing joke that i could earn a bit of extra cash by charging people for coming in and visiting my zoo, lol. My flat there was a student flat and it was very small but i filled it with pets of all kinds. I had canaries, bugdies, Guinea pigs, mice and a hamster while i lived there. I might be a wee bit obsessed with animals….!!!! Most of my friends Think that it's cool. Except for the giant african landsnail. Only a few people Think that is cool. But i Think she's lovely!!! I have named her snailzilla and i make sure to pet her every day so she is aware that i love her!!!

Cacoethes 30-04-2022 07:50 PM

I may or may not show up unannounced :tongue2:

I think the giant snails are kinda cute in their own way!
When we were kids we used to race snails lol
Kept us busy for hours! XD

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 08:24 AM


I was hoping to sleep in today. I even took a zopiclone as well as my usual sedating meds in the hope it would keep me in bed longer but nope, up at 8 yet again!

tamobhuuta 01-05-2022 10:45 AM

Was your sleep restful?

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 10:47 AM

Not particularly! Lol

How are you?

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 01:44 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Kat, is there anything you know of that you'd like to try that we could send you apart from ginger biscuits of course?

Sorry you didn't get to sleep as long as you wanted to Beckie. What have you been filling your time with today?

How are you Tamo?

not_so_insig 01-05-2022 01:45 PM

How about Monster Munch? Or Welsh cakes?

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 01:56 PM

I've pretty much been doing nothing!
Lots of stress going on lol!

Monster munch is a good one

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 02:00 PM

Oh no, stress is not good. Do you have safe ways to relax?

It would have to be the original pickled onion Monster Munch although the other flavours are yum too. I want the spicy ones now!

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 02:13 PM

Not really!
Just holding on to the last bit of sanity I have rn XD
Trying to anyway!

Would definitely have to be the original ones!
They're my favourite anyway!

nonperson 01-05-2022 02:14 PM

Yuck. Don't send Zurg pickled onion monster munch. That's not very kind!

Crumpets and pot noodle and Twiglets, Bourbons, custard creams, tunnocks tea cakes, pork scratchings, Penguins (I think Zurg would enjoy the jokes) aaaaand... Jaffa cakes!

nonperson 01-05-2022 02:15 PM

Ooh and scampi fries.

nonperson 01-05-2022 02:15 PM

If it has to be something pickled onion flavour it should be Space Raiders.

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 02:26 PM

Ahh i love space raiders!

I'm hungry after all those suggestions np!

nonperson 01-05-2022 03:54 PM

I don't like them either but feel they're more iconic. =P


Ooh, what about millions? Are they a British thing or just something that everyone filled their school blazer pockets with at my school?

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 03:57 PM

Those are great suggestions NP. My stomach has also rumbled in agreement.

Why would you fill your pockets with millions? You'd get a handful of whatever fluff etc that was also in your pockets when you go to eat them.

I don't know if they're a British thing.

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 03:59 PM

I totally forgot about millions.
They were awesome!
Not sure i ever put them in my blazer pockets though!

nonperson 01-05-2022 04:00 PM

I dunno - we were stupid kids? =P I think it was that someone used to buy a massive bag of them from the tuck shop and hand them out.

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 04:03 PM

So, I could get some of these things and others depending on if there's anything specific Kat wants to try then post them and if you have a bit of money to spare you could pay pal it to me once I find out the total cost? I'm happy to cover the cost myself if people don't have much.

Unless someone else wants to do the shopping and sending?

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 04:09 PM

Makes sense np!

More than happy to paypal you lindsay!

not_so_insig 01-05-2022 04:14 PM

I am happy to PayPal you Lindsay too.

nonperson 01-05-2022 04:15 PM

I will definitely paypal you, Lindsay. Are you ok with doing the shopping and sending?

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 04:58 PM

Yeah, once we create a final list I don't mind doing the shopping and sending.

Cacoethes 01-05-2022 05:03 PM

Ahh this will be so nice!

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 05:04 PM

We may have to cut down some of NPs excited things like a pot noodle depending on what size of box I have.

nonperson 01-05-2022 05:08 PM

Maybe supernoodles instead if they're smaller?

There's always going to be too much stuff to send. =P

one_step_closer 01-05-2022 05:11 PM

Hopefully Kat will let us know if there's anything specific she wants to try and we can add some things to that. Doesn't everywhere have quick cook noodles like pot noodles or supernoodles?
