A book about periods??

We do need another thread.
Something controversial

nonperson 30-04-2023 07:42 PM

It's hard to think of a controversial topic on the spot.

Pizza toppings have been covered.

Cacoethes 30-04-2023 07:44 PM

It is indeed.
Could do what do you call each meal?
Or bread rolls?
Or what time does evening start?
Bread rolls might be good because there are SO many different names for them

nonperson 30-04-2023 07:52 PM

All of the above XD

It depends on what kind of roll, doesn't it?

Cacoethes 30-04-2023 08:01 PM

Like a roll you'd use for a burger!

tamobhuuta 30-04-2023 08:06 PM

I've been watching the Life of Brian. Romanes eunt domus!

nonperson 30-04-2023 08:11 PM

Burger bun.

nonperson 30-04-2023 08:12 PM

Brian is a very naughty boy.

Cacoethes 30-04-2023 08:21 PM


nonperson 30-04-2023 08:27 PM

Welease Woger!

Cacoethes 30-04-2023 08:29 PM

Blessed are the cheesemakers!

Cacoethes 30-04-2023 08:43 PM

You are all individuals!
I'm not!

Yes! It’s really good! All about period stigma around the world and problems caused by both stigma and lack of access to menstrual products and clean water to wash. Lots of really positive stories about people fighting the stigma.

Also I’ve only seen Life Of Brian once a long time ago so cannot contribute to the fun!

Ahimsa 30-04-2023 09:09 PM

Quiz time!

By numbers of squares on the board, which is the largest Cleudo room in area?

Ahimsa 30-04-2023 09:13 PM

For our new friends on the thread, I read a pub quiz on Tuesdays and Sundays, so usually pop some questions in here too ��

nonperson 30-04-2023 09:14 PM

Ooooh yay quiz!

I can't remember any of the Cluedo rooms other than the library. Or the hallway...

nonperson 30-04-2023 09:16 PM

Shame on you.

Cacoethes 30-04-2023 09:21 PM

That actually sounds quite interesting jenna!

Do not have brainpower for quiz. I rarely do at this time of night!

Ahimsa 30-04-2023 09:29 PM

It’s the ballroom!


Waloons mainly inhabit which country?

long road 30-04-2023 10:09 PM

OMG you lot have been busy today, five pages since I posted around lunchtime!!!

I didn't really leave bed until 7pm. But then I did manage to cook dinner and sort shopping order. Now I am chilling watching 2nd episode of people trying to drive across peru in tiny motorbikes

Ahimsa 30-04-2023 10:16 PM

The answer is Belgium!

Hey LR ��

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 09:21 AM

Morning everyone!

Pi.R^2 01-05-2023 09:21 AM

Morning! How's it going? Hope you got some relatively good sleep :)

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 09:49 AM

Actually had a really good sleep!
I think i was tired out from Saturday and bad sleep

How are you?

Ahimsa 01-05-2023 09:50 AM

Morning Pi and Beckie, how are you both?

I slept AWFULLY so I'm going back to sleeps.

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 09:58 AM

Oh no!
Hope you get some good daytime sleeps!

tamobhuuta 01-05-2023 09:59 AM

Morning. I woke up twice in the night needing the loo! But I went straight back to sleep. And I've had my hairwash.

Pi.R^2 01-05-2023 10:00 AM

Oh I'm glad you slept well Beckie! Bad news that you didn't Beth, hope sleep take 2 goes better! Also I'm called Jenna btw :)

tamobhuuta 01-05-2023 10:10 AM

Hi Pi. How are you?

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 10:27 AM

I am now off to the costa machine!
I showered this morning because i planned to go out. But remembered no buses in my town on bank holidays and sundays :plain:

tamobhuuta 01-05-2023 10:34 AM

What are you getting from the Costa machine? Will you get an outing?

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 10:46 AM

Sadly the costa machine is being cleaned.
They said it will be ready in about 40 mins so I'll try and get there after lunch.
Hopefully they'll have someone to take me!
I got a coke zero though

tamobhuuta 01-05-2023 10:51 AM

That's a shame, fingers crossed.

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 10:57 AM


Do you have much planned for today?

tamobhuuta 01-05-2023 11:12 AM

Sorting out my meds boxes for the week. Exciting stuff.

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 11:24 AM

Hated sorting meds boxes!

Ugh, housework!
It's a bit grey here but not cold

Pi.R^2 01-05-2023 11:26 AM

I hope your sunshine continues too zippit, that sounds like a good afternoon plan :)

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 11:30 AM

Do you have any plans jenna?

Pi.R^2 01-05-2023 11:46 AM

I'm about to go and bake wheaten bread, the food of my people!

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 11:47 AM

Oooh lovely!

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 11:56 AM

I don't mind it really.
Just more fun things i could be doing!

nonperson 01-05-2023 12:20 PM

I googled it and now I understand! But my first thought was "Who, vegans?" XD

Pi.R^2 01-05-2023 12:29 PM

Haha np! From my shorts-shaped country :P

Zippit, I believe in England it is called 'soda bread' but that's the wrong name and the stuff that comes in packets in English is no good.

I made such a song a dance about how we make it better in 'my country' to the man who runs the zero-waste shop we go to that I'm making a bonus mini loaf to bring to him :P

nonperson 01-05-2023 12:35 PM

Ahh I forgot about the shorts-shapedness!

Is soda bread what everyone was making during covid?

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 12:38 PM

It was sourdough during lockdown!

nonperson 01-05-2023 12:44 PM

Oh of course it was.

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 12:46 PM

And banana bread!

The Worst Witch 01-05-2023 12:49 PM

Afternoon everyone

This bamk holiday has confused me, I thought it was the Coronation today bit thats next weekend and we get another day off!

Wheaten bread sounds yummy. I love soda/wheaten bread, and I’m sure your shop owner friend will appreciate the loaf Jenna :)

What’s everyone else up to today? Its also housework day for me, but the flat os reasonably tidy anyway so shouldn’t take me long.

one_step_closer 01-05-2023 12:54 PM

Wow I have just read sooooo much here! Chatterboxes.

I hope everyone is having a good day.

It was grey here when I was trying to take a photo of a tree and then when I came back in the sun came out. So I went out again. Phone cameras are really rubbish when it comes to detailed photos. Or maybe it's just my phone.

nonperson 01-05-2023 12:55 PM

If anyone doesn't have enough housework to keep themselves busy today then please come and do mine.
