I wouldn't want to!

What're you up today later today? Work?

chinahorse 23-03-2018 04:23 AM

I am clean! That seems to be the only discernable difference. Didn't help or hinder which is a net result of the waste of time lol. Ah well. Gunna put the tele on for a bit.

chinahorse 23-03-2018 05:28 AM

The world is boring at this time. And argos have stolen my money. How blinking rude!

chinahorse 23-03-2018 05:38 AM

Well blinking rude is probably the nicest thing I'll say to then at 7am.

I'm watching a re-run of an Australian traffic cop show that was probably new some time in my early teens and it's not even the first time I've seen it.

Also wish I had a slave. Because I'd totally make them go find me tesco low in life baked beans and microwave them to like warm and deliver their tasty beany ases to me.

Morning :

Aubergine 23-03-2018 11:19 AM

How's it going?

chinahorse 23-03-2018 11:24 AM

About as well as my attempt a smile!
Not sure what that's about but hey ho.

How're you?

nonperson 23-03-2018 11:25 AM

Morning folks.

Feel like nothing's changed since 3am here... o.o

chinahorse 23-03-2018 11:30 AM

Ha! Apparently we are all paid up members of the sleep is for the weak club.

nonperson 23-03-2018 11:32 AM

I've been awake since 8:30. =/

chinahorse 23-03-2018 11:35 AM

:/ if it's any help that's about when I went to sleep?

Nap time today at any point?

Trying to psyche myself up to calling argos.

nonperson 23-03-2018 11:38 AM

Yeah I know I shouldn't complain really. Just feel like I've had no sleep at all!

Don't really like day time naps, always feel weird afterwards rather than better.

What happened with Argos?

chinahorse 23-03-2018 11:48 AM

That feeling really does suck though! And fair enough, maybe just some quiet time chilling with your new book or somat instead then :)

They took my money but gave me no order number or anything to collect the items from. The lady was nice but all that can be done is to cancel it. Which is fair but like I now don't have the 5 items I want/need.

And south west water just rang me to tell me I'm pretty much paying enough each month. Erm ok? The lady sounded sheepish lol

nonperson 23-03-2018 11:51 AM

Can you just re-order?

That's a weird thing to call you about! Maybe she knew it was a pointless call too and that's why she sounded odd. =)

chinahorse 23-03-2018 11:51 AM

Mrs water lady asked for MRS my surname and I was like sorry my mums out :-P

chinahorse 23-03-2018 11:54 AM

I can but I don't want to muddy the waters till the money has been refunded as it's over 60 quid. I should just be less lazy and go and get the things from argos myself I just don't like it in there fr long periods. And they never have enough of those machines for a shop that is essentially battleships.

nonperson 23-03-2018 12:00 PM

When I lived at home I used to get confused for my mum on the phone because we supposedly sound exactly the same! Her friends used to call and just start talking and talking and talking and I had to butt in somehow and say I'm not her!

Ah that is rubbish then. You get things quicker though if you go to the shops.

chinahorse 23-03-2018 12:06 PM

Haha that sounds like it could have gotten awkward!!

True. I just can't drive and would rather get things in one go but meh I'll get a taxi. Life goes on.

nonperson 23-03-2018 12:09 PM

Hope it's nothing big and bulky to get. Can imagine trying to stuff flat pack furniture in a taxi. =)

chinahorse 23-03-2018 12:13 PM

I moved house in a taxI once.
It's more awkward things like a dirty washing bin and a bathroom storage unit and a v shaped pillow.

Aubergine 23-03-2018 12:15 PM

Had to cancel going to visit a friend because my tummy is still not playing. :( Can't work out if I'm hot or cold. Silly body. It is a troll.

Getting anything nice from Argos, Lillie?

nonperson 23-03-2018 12:17 PM

Ah that's not so bad then. =)

nonperson 23-03-2018 12:18 PM

Aw, poor Aubergine. Better to get rested up than force yourself to do too much!

not_so_insig 23-03-2018 12:22 PM

Morning all

chinahorse 23-03-2018 12:24 PM

Oh no :( fluids and rest the aubergine.

not_so_insig 23-03-2018 12:27 PM

I am being driven mad by a neighbour's constantly barking dog. I have a tenancy inspection in a fortnight's time. Last time they asked me if I had any issues with my neighbours so I am going to mention it.

chinahorse 23-03-2018 12:31 PM

Have you spoken to the neighbours about their dog? If they are out all day they may genuinely not know it's making a racket.

Aubergine 23-03-2018 12:32 PM

I've just had a wash, changed my bed and got into clean pyjamas. Got back in bed, but feel a bit better for feeling fresh. Drinking plenty. :)

Hey Dawn. :) Barking dog sounds frustrating. Might be worth having a quiet word.

not_so_insig 23-03-2018 12:35 PM

They have gone out so I will have to wait until they come back.

chinahorse 23-03-2018 12:36 PM

Thas good aubergine. Feeling fresh can help loads.

Aubergine 23-03-2018 12:37 PM

Sounds like a good plan, Dawn. :) I hope they're not too long. :)

nonperson 23-03-2018 12:38 PM

Barking dogs are irritating. My neighbour's dog does it but he's kept outside so I usually just shout "That's enough!" out the window and he stops. =) He does it when people knock on my door as well.

nonperson 23-03-2018 12:57 PM

Ugh, minty fresh mouth... =|

chinahorse 23-03-2018 01:01 PM


Ive done enough adulting today. Can someone else call e.on for me and get my wages and food and post stuff?

nonperson 23-03-2018 01:05 PM

Yus, toothpaste. Ick.

I can't do my own adulting let alone someone else's... =/

chinahorse 23-03-2018 01:08 PM

You can get none minty pastes if that'd. Make life easier?

I've already called one place and taken a surprise adulting though

nonperson 23-03-2018 01:17 PM

Minty is only bothering me today because I'm sitting here thinking about it.

Do you need to get it all done today?

chinahorse 23-03-2018 01:43 PM

Well get up and stop thinking about it!

Sadly yeah. Because I'm back at work tuesday and it all needs doing. But I'm now on hold to e.on after the first call to e.on services was to morrison utility. And trying to explain that my first name is double barreled not my surname. Apparently my parents decided that as well as spelling things differently they had to make things extra hard too.

chinahorse 23-03-2018 01:45 PM

Think fionas got bored and gone for a cuppa.

nonperson 23-03-2018 01:50 PM


I really should get up... and maybe shower.

chinahorse 23-03-2018 01:53 PM

Irish lass at e.o.
She came back and is now calling me back when she gets a manager as she gets why its a problem cos of credit checks and that but e.on has no way to fix their own problem.

Managed not to loose my temper so far though which is good.

Aubergine 23-03-2018 02:16 PM

Adulting like a pro, Lillie! :)

chinahorse 23-03-2018 02:16 PM

haha thanks, I need the loo though but am on hold :/

Aubergine 23-03-2018 02:20 PM

Oh, that sucks! Hopefully someone will take you off of hold soon so you can finish the call and go to the loo!

not_so_insig 23-03-2018 02:34 PM

Hope you managed to get to the loo Lillie!

Aubergine 23-03-2018 02:42 PM

Up to much, Dawn?

not_so_insig 23-03-2018 02:46 PM

Nope Aubergine. Just mainly doing washing of clothes whereas my mum is cleaning my flat for me.

Aubergine 23-03-2018 02:51 PM

Oh that's kind of your Mum. :) Got much clothes washing to do?

not_so_insig 23-03-2018 02:53 PM

Not too much but it takes time.
