I had a shower, go me!

one_step_closer 18-12-2021 03:17 PM

So many people getting parcels. I don't think I'm waiting on any.

Well done Tamo. :-)

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 03:48 PM

Well done tamo!

I'm waiting on 2 tomorrow!
Then 2 more at some point next week

nonperson 18-12-2021 06:44 PM

Evening all.

What should I put on my shopping list? And when should I go? =/


Cacoethes 18-12-2021 07:36 PM

What sorts of things have you already got?
Go now! I always find it's best if you don't think about it and just go!

I'm back home!

nonperson 18-12-2021 07:42 PM

Did you have a nice day?

I've decided on chilli con carne, that'll feed me easily for a few days... and the usual weekly basics for lunch and snacks and stuff. I'm gonna go in a sec... >.< and then I can watch Strictly when I get back. *deep breath*

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 07:54 PM

Yes thanks :)
We played super smash bros on the switch and then watched Christmas chronicles 2
We're going to go and see Clifford the big red dog in the cinema on Thursday! Then go to McDonald's

You can do it!
May the force be with you!

nonperson 18-12-2021 08:13 PM

Ooh that's sounds like a nice plan.

It's weirdly empty in the car park!

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 08:26 PM

Yep! Should be good!

It was pretty empty in asda too
Just a lot of very slow people stopping in front of me :plain:

shadow-light 18-12-2021 08:37 PM

Oh I HATE it when people just stop in front of you! Honestly humans need break lights

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 08:45 PM

They really do!!!
SO annoying!

shadow-light 18-12-2021 08:59 PM

Indicators too

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 09:02 PM

Especially in London!

nonperson 18-12-2021 09:23 PM

I'm probably one of those people who get in the way and change direction without warning =/

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 09:31 PM

Oh no!
I liked you as well :tongue2:

nonperson 18-12-2021 09:47 PM

Well it's unlikely I'll ever get in your way so you can continue to like me!

(Please? XD)

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 09:52 PM

That's true.
I shall continue to like you :tongue2:

nonperson 18-12-2021 09:54 PM

Thank goodness.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:06 PM

I could never dislike you np!

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:10 PM

Aw. :blush: I'm all embarrassed now.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:13 PM

I just think we get on rather well!

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:16 PM

We do. Similar interests I suppose and often bored and looking for silly conversation in this thread =P

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:19 PM


My future sister in law has just announced the engagement on Facebook! I'm so excited! My brother is the first of us to get married. Or indeed have a long term partner!

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:21 PM

Do they have a date yet for the wedding?

I only have one sister and she's already married so that's all over and done with, lol.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:29 PM

I don't think so.
But she loves weddings so it will be well planned!

There's 5 of us! One brother has a girlfriend who is completely out of his league (she is a legit model. Just got a new contract in new york)
Other brother has never been bothered with relationships and my sister is only 17 but has a boyfriend. She'll probably get married to someone when she's older. She has her life properly sorted out!
And then there's me. Asexual and aromantic. Lol!

Jasmine asked me if I had a boyfriend and I said no. She asked why and I said 'boys are icky'
And she said 'legit'

shadow-light 18-12-2021 10:32 PM

I have 2 half brothers, but I can't see the older of the two ever getting married and I'm not really in contact with the other. So I'm safe from sibling weddings :tongue2:

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:33 PM

Everyone's different! And boys are absolutely legit icky.

I totally read that as aromatic btw.

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:35 PM

Hey Hazel. That's lucky! One sibling wedding was enough for me. =P

I'll probably be the spinster cat lady sibling who never gets married.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:36 PM

Lol Hazel!
I actually love weddings!

They totally are np

Haha! I always read it as aromatic first :p

I would be a crazy cat/dog lady if I were allowed pets

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:38 PM

I forgot I've actually been to three weddings =o The ex's brother's (really boring), my uncle's (seagull stole my battered sausage in Brighton and my smart shoes fell apart while I was wearing them) and my sister's in Las Vegas!

Here's a question: if you really were aromatic what spice would you smell like?

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:43 PM

I remember you posting about the Vegas one! I was very jealous!

I've been to one wedding!
My cousin. Well, my step dad's cousin but we've always grown up with calling them our cousins because they're closer to my age. And they're a lot of fun!
The wedding was insane. 4 string quartet, 3 course meal, posh church and hotel, hog roast later on, photo booth, photographers, videographers and a DJ!
It was great fun

I'm not actually very familiar with spices!
So I don't know!
What about you?

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:47 PM

Yeah Vegas was a life event/massive holiday not just a wedding. =)

Whoa that sounds immense.

I'd be cinnamon. Cinnamon bagel, cinnamon apple crumble, cinnamon doughtnuts...!

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:49 PM

Yes definitely!

It was!

I was thinking cinnamon! Cinnamon rolls. Mmmm

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:50 PM

Cinnamon swirls!

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 10:53 PM

Ooooh yes!

I may have to go to the bakery on Monday...

nonperson 18-12-2021 10:58 PM

Cinnamon is a very festive flavour too.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 11:01 PM

It is indeed!

nonperson 18-12-2021 11:04 PM

My other option was cumin or turmeric because I like curries.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 11:07 PM

Turmeric is apparently good for a lot of things!
Like health wise

nonperson 18-12-2021 11:28 PM

It is. I've recently learned that it can be made into "golden milk" - milk, turmeric, cinnamon, honey/maple syrup and black pepper.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 11:30 PM

That sounds really nice! Apart from the pepper!
I do not like pepper

nonperson 18-12-2021 11:36 PM

Yeah I think the pepper is often missed out of that recipe.

Cacoethes 18-12-2021 11:48 PM

Pepper is not nice!

The work group chat is still blowing up with drunk people

nonperson 18-12-2021 11:56 PM

I like pepper, but I think that might be a symptom of having no sense of smell, as in, pepper tastes milder to me.

Staff are drunk??

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 12:01 AM

Ah yeah. That would do it!
I don't like the tiniest bit of spice!
So I just can't deal

Yep! Not while working obviously! Lol
A group of them have gone out and they're posting loads of pictures and rambling drunk messages.
And one of the supervisors passed out

nonperson 19-12-2021 12:06 AM

Wow, sounds like carnage. o.o

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 12:13 AM

That's what you get when the majority of the staff are all young and fun!

nonperson 19-12-2021 12:31 AM

They might be young but they really don't know how to do fun properly.

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 12:35 AM

Most of them are pretty fun to work with!

nonperson 19-12-2021 12:52 AM

I meant out on the town type of fun ;-)
