Cacoethes 09-05-2023 05:05 PM

Yes she will. Someone from my group will always take me home, but i don't mind walking there.

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 05:06 PM

Sounds like you have a nice group of people there.

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 05:08 PM

I do!

The rain has un-calmed down again
And thunder

tamobhuuta 09-05-2023 05:11 PM

I'm glad you've got a lift in this weather!

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 05:20 PM

Sounds like the kind of evening to stay inside and watch the storm. Storms are cool just not things like hurricanes etc in other countries.

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 05:22 PM

I don't know if I can hear a little rain or clapping from the football pitch behind my house. Sometimes the football peoples shouts also sound like cats.

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 05:27 PM

Nah I've been looking forward to glow beatz for weeks!
Definitely going!

Hm. Weird!

I have managed to clean the hair dye stain from my bathroom! I asked in a cleaning tips group on fb. Nail polish remover was one of many suggestions! But was the only thing i actually have. Took it straight off! Who knew?!
Thank god for the Internet! XD

not_so_insig 09-05-2023 05:32 PM

Oooh my order from Truffle Shuffle has been despatched!

Zurg 09-05-2023 05:34 PM

^ikr!!! Before having internet we had to ask people either face-to-face or use the dreadful phone that wasn't even capable of showing who made the call!!! Ghastly times!!!!

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 05:37 PM

The dark times...
Even my neighbour couldn't get it off! And she's a cleaner!

Zurg 09-05-2023 05:40 PM

It was the age of never ending anxiety!!!

Now i get anxious from googling symptoms when i feel ill and Dr. Google tells me i have the plague.
We can't win!!! :(

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 05:42 PM

I always take dr google with a pinch of salt!
I mostly just find the suggestions funny
I've had a headache for 2 days, it'll probably tell me I've got a brain tumour or something

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 05:49 PM

Hm. It's just coming up with all different kinds of headache. Most likely a migraine.
Seemingly, google has become less dramatic than it was!

nonperson 09-05-2023 05:54 PM

Evening chatteroos.

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 05:57 PM

Evening np!
How be you?

tamobhuuta 09-05-2023 05:57 PM

Hi np

We've got storm here finally.

nonperson 09-05-2023 06:02 PM

I be meh.

How're you both?

Also I've had pretty much no rain today. Heard some thunder rumbling in the distance earlier but nothing dramatic. Blue sky at the moment but I think that is due to change later.

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 06:02 PM

My friend can't take me anymore because her daughter is unwell.
Just really hope the rain stays at this level until i have to walk there! :ermm:

nonperson 09-05-2023 06:13 PM

How long is the walk?

You know there is very magical device known as an umbrella that helps with situations such as this.

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 06:23 PM

Only about 10 mins.
Trust me, an umbrella would not have helped in the rain we had a minute ago!

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 06:38 PM

I hope you get there/are there at least mostly dry, Beckie! I really wish you'd just put on a coat/jacket!

What did you get from TruffleShuffle, Dawn? I have a couple of things on my wishlist but waiting to see if they lower the price. Missed out on one thing though which is now sold out.

Google is now a sensible adult.

Did you have thunder and lightning, Tamo, or just lots of rain? Sun still shining here.

Hi, NP, sorry you're meh. Anything we can do?

nonperson 09-05-2023 06:40 PM

Oh, nothing protects from the ol' sideways rain!

Thanks Lindsay, it's ok. Unless someone has invented a personality transplant then there is nothing anyone can do.

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 06:42 PM

I would hate for you to have a personality transplant, you are an amazing human. I would like you to have the strength and support if needed to feel the way you want to feel and get to where you want to be though.

nonperson 09-05-2023 06:45 PM

Well miracles are known to happen sometimes! Thank you though, that is appreciated.

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 06:47 PM

It's too warm for a coat!
And i don't own a waterproof jacket.

Yep, the dreaded sideways rain!

I love your personality exactly as it is np!

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 06:51 PM

What's the difference between a coat and a jacket? Even if it's not waterproof it would still protect you better than wearing just a hoody.

nonperson 09-05-2023 06:54 PM

Pff, stop being so nice to me guys.

Coat is like for winter and jacket is more lightweight?

I can go fully waterproof if I want to at work - wellies, waterproof trousers and a fairly decent waterproof jacket but my goodness is that a sweaty combo especially in summer!

tamobhuuta 09-05-2023 06:55 PM

I agree, your personality is lovely as is np.

I hope you don't get too wet Cacoethes.

We had horrendous rain and hail and thunder for about 5 minutes, then that was it!

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 06:55 PM

You deserve niceness and beyond!

I just call everything a jacket I think.

Someone needs to invent something for those hot but wet days.

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 06:56 PM

Sounds like the sky was having a quick tantrum, Tamo!

nonperson 09-05-2023 06:56 PM

Alright, stop now please (but thank you all <3)

The rain is finally here! Cat is not impressed.

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 06:58 PM

Is this the first time it has rained today, NP? Poor kitty.

not_so_insig 09-05-2023 06:59 PM

Lindsay I got a Keeping Up Appearances tshirt. Wanted it for ages but they didn't have my size :angry: . But the other day they sent me an email saying that it was finally available in my size so got it before it sold out.

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 07:01 PM

Have you got any other Keeping Up Appearances clothing? I'm glad you managed to get the t-shirt.

nonperson 09-05-2023 07:03 PM

Lindsay, nah it rained at about 5pm, plus a few very small showers throughout the day but I could be outside in a tshirt in them without getting soaked so not sure they even count as showers. But now it's proper rain.

not_so_insig 09-05-2023 07:03 PM

That will be my 5th tshirt. I also have a mug with Hyacinth on it.

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 07:11 PM

It's still raining, but it's tolerable rain now!
Just hope it's still ok on the walk home :ermm:
I am way too early, as usual XD

nonperson 09-05-2023 07:14 PM

It won't matter on the way home though?

Consider it a much needed shower after a workout.

long road 09-05-2023 07:23 PM

Still no broadband. But much better in this day and age now I have data. Back around 2010/2011 I lost the internet for a week because someone stole the cooper cable linking my village onto the network, they open one manhole cut the cable and then opened the manhole 400m down the hill cut that and pulled it through, and that meant no internet access at all.

Finally stopped raining though! Going to make pizza for tea. And I might even put pineapple on it... Shhh... Don't tell Jenna. :Lips are Sealed:

nonperson 09-05-2023 07:26 PM

I've heard of people stealing copper cables before! At least you do have data!

I'm scuppered when I have a powercut or when my broadband is down as I don't get phone signal in my house.

I say put extra pineapple on the pizza in Jenna's name! She will be thrilled.

Cacoethes 09-05-2023 07:30 PM

True np!

They used to do that when i lived in st albans!
Happened as soon as they replaced it again and again!
Apparently very valuable for scrap

Love the jenna trolling :p

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 07:31 PM

You're a true fan, Dawn!

I hope you enjoy your class, Beckie and don't overdo it. I also hope you can get home and not be soaked.

People going in manholes to steal copper cables?! I've never heard of them getting the cables that way. Madness!

I saw a picture on Fb of a pizza with sliced kiwi fruit on it and it says something like pineapple on pizza lovers and haters we need to join forces because we have a new enemy!

long road 09-05-2023 07:33 PM

I may just have to add extra pineapple in Jenna's honour NP what a brilliant idea.

Luckily I live in a city these days rather than a village so phone signal is a lot better too. You only get signal on some parts of the house where I grew up. Do you have a landline? I know some places have been making people get rid of them for broadband calling.

Pi.R^2 09-05-2023 07:33 PM

No!!! I’m too late and now I’m not allowed to offer my feedback on np’s personality???? SULK SULK

nonperson 09-05-2023 07:34 PM

Trolling the mods comes with the job. If she can't handle it then... well... maybe we need new leadership.

I'm trying so hard not to be prejudiced about kiwi on pizza...!!

nonperson 09-05-2023 07:35 PM


nonperson 09-05-2023 07:35 PM

Oh that was rather loud and aggressive, I apologise =|

long road 09-05-2023 07:37 PM

Someone stole the lead off the church roof as well one time. I am glad they only sole our internet cable once Beckie multiple times would have been madness as it was the only connection into the village!

I knew someone who put strawberry on pizza when we had to make one for food tech. I wasn't a fan but it was edible and as a teenager I didn't turn down free food. I don't think I have ever had warm kiwi that feels wrong.

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 07:37 PM

Don't take it back, NP! Stand up proud of your vocalisation that is actually not vocal.

one_step_closer 09-05-2023 07:38 PM

I'd rather just have a sweet pizza with Nutella and bits of mars bars etc.
