You up to much today?

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 10:34 AM

Just doing some washing and shower later


tamobhuuta 03-07-2022 10:59 AM

Not really. Hopefully I'll be able to do some reading.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 11:06 AM

That would be good

tamobhuuta 03-07-2022 11:32 AM

I love reading :)

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 11:40 AM

I'm currently reading one of the books that lindsay sent me. Very slowly but I'm getting there!

tamobhuuta 03-07-2022 01:24 PM

Cool, what's it called?

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 01:35 PM

Afternoon everyone. I currently have a cat trying to push my laptop out of the way.

tamobhuuta 03-07-2022 01:37 PM

Cute or annoying or both?!

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 01:40 PM

It's called the fire witness

Haha! He wants all your attention lindsay!

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 01:55 PM

He's always annoying at first and then gives up and settles on my lap. Sometimes he pushes his head on my bum or scratches on the seat where my bum is because he wants my seat. Sometimes when I get up and move over he'll just come back to sit with me!

I enjoyed The Fire Witness, I hope you do.

What are you reading, Tamo?

I've just finished one book and will start another one today. I have rules about the order I read my books in.

nonperson 03-07-2022 01:57 PM

Afternoon all.

I have a couple of books on the go at the moment too. One to read before bed and another that I'm reading on and off in the day.

Beckie, or anyone else for that matter, I can't remember if you like Shinedown or not? If so there's a new album out =)

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 02:06 PM

I'm listening in bits to the new Grey Daze album which has vocals from Chester Bennington on it. I don't know if they inserted them or they've chosen older songs that he was already a part of.

What are you reading NP?

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 02:08 PM

Found my answer “The Phoenix” is a remix album by Grey Daze composed of Chester Bennington's vocals from the 90's over newly recorded instrumentals.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 02:14 PM

I do like shinedown!
Will have to listen to it!

That sounds good lindsay

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 02:25 PM

I don't think I've heard much of Shinedown but I have heard some and liked it. Do you have some favourite songs?

nonperson 03-07-2022 02:36 PM

I'll have to check out that Grey Daze album.

I'm reading Childhood's End by Arthur C Clarke and Legacy by James Kerr.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 03:21 PM

'Devil' and 'monsters' are my favourites i think!

My brain has decided it doesn't want to focus on words anymore. Was good while it lasted!
I have such a short attention span. It's annoying

nonperson 03-07-2022 03:53 PM

Those are good songs.

I have too many favourites - Black Cadillac, Cut The Chord, State of my Head, Enemies, Cry For Help and on and on and on.

There's no rule about having to focus on one thing for a specific amount of time.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 04:22 PM

Oooh state of my head is another favourite of mine

I just find it irritating when i want to do something and my brain doesn't

not_so_insig 03-07-2022 04:42 PM

Afternoon all. I have been for a walk and unpacked my parcel which came this morning. I have also washed and dried my hair plus done some laundry. So semi productive day so far but not as productive as yesterday. Still gotta put the cardboard in the paper bag.

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 05:14 PM

I'm sorry your attention span is being annoying, Beckie. Maybe you can get back to reading tomorrow at some point. Have you found something else to do?

Sounds like I need to be listening to Shinedown. I don't really listen to music much I should do it more.

Well done with getting all that done, Dawn. You don't need to compare today to yesterday, you've done really well.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 05:17 PM

I'll try again tomorrow unless I'm too tired from work!
I'm currently working my way through criminal minds for the millionth time lol

I only really listen to music on the bus but sometimes i play it on the alexa when I'm bored of tv.

not_so_insig 03-07-2022 05:17 PM

Thanks Lindsay.

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 05:25 PM

Music is too important not to listen to it much. I'm going to try and listen to it when I'm walking to get my prescription/going to Tesco but that makes me kind of anxious.

What is criminal minds about?

Will you be doing something nice once you've put the cardboard in the paper bag, Dawn?

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 05:31 PM

Good plan!

It's about a behavioural analysis unit of the fbi who find serial killers by looking at their behaviour and stuff. Lots of cool twists. It's fictional. Well, the behavioural analysis unit of the fbi is a real thing but apparently it's nothing like the tv show!

not_so_insig 03-07-2022 05:39 PM

Other than cooking my meal I have no plans for today. I will probably have halloumi for my tea.

criminal minds. <3 <3 I'm in love with JJ. Have you seen season 15?

Pi.R^2 03-07-2022 05:44 PM

Also like, hi. No idea of the moral stance of the thread on the way I barge in randomly sometimes.

not_so_insig 03-07-2022 05:46 PM

*considers reporting Jenna for being rude*

Pi.R^2 03-07-2022 05:48 PM

Go on ahead, there are several members who have their own sections of the post report bin just for all the troll reports they make; many of which are about me :crying: :crying:
Although due to your signature request, you'd miss out on the sarcastic PM in response :P

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 05:48 PM

I enjoy your appearances in the thread Jenna!

I shouldn't have asked about Criminal Minds, now I might have to watch something new! I'm sticking to Greys Anatomy for now I think.

Enjoy your food and your evening then, Dawn.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 05:48 PM

I'm in love with Reid! JJ is cool too though
Yes i have seen season 15!
Got so emotional at the last episode

I could never get into greys anatomy

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 05:50 PM

Can I report Dawn and Jenna for ninja moves when I was typing?

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 05:50 PM

Oh and maybe Beckie now too, although I might let her off.

Le woe.

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 06:04 PM

I'm going to watch Casualty on iplayer this evening then try to find something else to watch then see if I can concentrate on reading before bed.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 06:06 PM

I was almost certain there was a ninja emoji on ryl but apparently there isn't.

not_so_insig 03-07-2022 06:06 PM

There's no Casualty on next Saturday Lindsay btw. Football on instead.

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 06:07 PM

A ninja emoji is an important one to have.

Damn football.

not_so_insig 03-07-2022 06:10 PM

Between football, f1, Wimbledon and racing there is nothing decent on next weekend unless you like sport.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 06:10 PM

You'd think so lindsay!

nonperson 03-07-2022 06:25 PM

I fell asleep and missed pages of talking! =(

Remember the days of having only four TV channels?

one_step_closer 03-07-2022 06:27 PM

I remember when channel 5 launched.

Good sleep?

nonperson 03-07-2022 06:35 PM

So do I.

Not really, it was more about escapism than tiredness.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 06:39 PM

How did we ever survive with only a few channels AND no mobile phones?!?

nonperson 03-07-2022 06:47 PM

There's so much technology and knowledge at people's fingertips nowadays that it's kinda scary. Good, but weird to think we had nothing like this growing up.

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 07:00 PM


I often tell Jasmine about things we didn't have when i was a kid.
I also played her the old dial up noise to her and she just looked at me and was like...wtf was that?!

Zurg 03-07-2022 07:24 PM

I was going to watch a drama Series tonight but SOMEONE has decided that shooting people in a mall in copenhagen was much more important and now my channels are overtaken by armed police people and semi hysteric news reporters having a crisis.
First of all, i do NOT like random people who carry guns and shoots at other people!!!
Second of all, i ****ing hate when the tv tries to sell us something as a terrorist attack because a lot of very stupid people are gonna be all racist afterwards!!!
Third, **** this world!!! I'm off to Hogwarts!!,

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 07:26 PM

Omg that's awful! And terrifying!
Yes the terrorist attack thing annoys me too.
I will join you at hogwarts i think
