Cacoethes 19-12-2021 12:54 AM

Yeah true!
Though I don't know how to do fun properly these days!
I'm so old

nonperson 19-12-2021 01:02 AM

Fun is whatever makes you happy.

You young'ns thinking you're old.... *eye roll* =P

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 01:08 AM

Wise words!

30 feels ancient!

I think I'm going to try and get some sleep!
Probably won't but it's worth a go!
Good night!

nonperson 19-12-2021 01:21 AM

I wish I was 30 again... =|

G'night! I should probably go to bed too. Midnight is way past bed time for us old folks.

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 09:25 AM

Morning everyone!
A have two parcels coming today!
Being delivered between 12:03-13:03 apparently!

nonperson 19-12-2021 11:02 AM


I love those random 3 minute past the hour time slots.

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 11:06 AM

Only dpd seem to do it!
So random!
Should have an amazon delivery coming today too!
Nothing exciting, only 6 bottles of hand soap.

How are you?

nonperson 19-12-2021 11:30 AM

Really random. They must have some strange reason for it.

My next parcels are arriving on Tuesday. An equally exciting new shower curtain rail and caddy.

I'm... ok. Tired, had a weird sleep. How're you?

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 11:37 AM


Is it a fancy shower curtain?
In my old place I had a butterfly one.
But here there is no shower curtain.

Do you have much to do today?

I'm ok! Random dreams! Probably induced by my recent watching of many terrible shark films

tamobhuuta 19-12-2021 11:37 AM

Hi everyone :)

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 11:39 AM

Hey tamo!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 19-12-2021 11:44 AM

I'm anxious because I'm going to see Wicked.

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 11:47 AM

I hope you enjoy it!
I've always wanted to see that!

nonperson 19-12-2021 12:13 PM

Hey Tamo. I also hope you enjoy it. I've heard very good things about that show! =)

It's not a fancy shower curtain - a sorta bright pink/blue/purple paisley mandala sort of pattern but I've finally decided to fix the curtain rail after years of having a temporary solution so have bought a new extendable one that will have to go across my entire bathroom beyond the bath (!) but I won't have to drill anything. I hope it stays up. =/ And I'm replacing the "non-rust" shower caddy which is rusted to crap. Bit of a bathroom overhaul. Maybe I'll even repaint the walls over Christmas... *gasp* but that might be asking too much, lol.

And there ends the life story of my bathroom.

Just got the usual laundry and attempt at cleaning the kitchen to do today. And wrap presents and write cards.

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 12:19 PM

That sounds nice!
Well done for getting stuff done!
I recently had my bathroom repainted. But the landlord did that of their own accord. I had nothing to do with it!

I'm also doing laundry.
I should clean too but EFFORT!

nonperson 19-12-2021 12:29 PM

I have to paint things myself but it was done badly (I did the first layer, ex finished it but didn't finish it very well...) and it pisses me off every time I go in there.

Everything is effort. *wail*

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 12:42 PM

I'll probably have to do the living room myself because I've made a little bit of mess on the walls. Like sellotape marks and coke splashes!
I've never painted anything before!

It issss D:

nonperson 19-12-2021 12:51 PM

It's quite easy. Look up some youtube videos? I like it once I get going but like most things I build it up to be a massively impossible task so never get round to doing it. I really want to paint my bedroom because I still have tester patches on the walls and it looks *****.

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 01:02 PM

Good idea!
Yeah I get that
What colour do you want to do your bedroom?

shadow-light 19-12-2021 01:04 PM

I probably shouldn't laugh... but only you could get coke snains on walls

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 01:11 PM

It's from when I open the bottles and they spray slightly!

nonperson 19-12-2021 01:16 PM

I don't know why I glossed over the mention of coke stains on the walls. Probably because it's not surprising, haha.

I think a fresh sort of green for my bedroom.

shadow-light 19-12-2021 01:18 PM

I've never gotten my head round those tester patches, they really just don't help me at all :laugh: but then again I am **** at visualising anything

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 01:27 PM


That sounds nice np!

Ah yeah I can see why they wouldn't help Hazel!

nonperson 19-12-2021 04:16 PM

The tester patches clearly didn't help me at all as I have four different coloured patches duplicated on three of the walls in my room...! And I'm not going to use any of those colours.

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 04:44 PM

Yeah that.doesnt sound too helpful!

nonperson 19-12-2021 05:18 PM

To be honest they're all shades of "man cave grey"... but I swapped rooms so want a cheerful colour.

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 05:28 PM

I'd want a cheerful colour too!
I wish I was allowed to paint my bedroom a different colour!

nonperson 19-12-2021 06:53 PM

I'm not actually entire sure if I'm allowed to any more. The housing contract was reissued and updated fairly recently and I was told it said we can't paint... but I need to do something because those test patches can't stay!

shadow-light 19-12-2021 06:59 PM

this is one of the few advatages of this house... there may be no heating, the roof may leak, and none of the doors shut fully... but as long as the rent is paid the landlord literally doesn't care what is done to the house

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 07:00 PM

Could you send an email to confirm?

I'm watching 5 headed shark attack

I think I'd rather have heating and not be able to paint Hazel!

nonperson 19-12-2021 07:08 PM

I'd rather have heating too tbh.

I should just read the new contract myself, lol. Or if anyone says anything, I'll just say it was painted before the contract was reissued.

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 07:16 PM

Good plan!

nonperson 19-12-2021 07:20 PM

Of course it may never get painted...

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 07:28 PM

Could you just hire someone to do it?
Much less effort

nonperson 19-12-2021 07:51 PM

I could... but that involves talking to people and having people in my house and adulting beyond my capability!

Cacoethes 19-12-2021 07:58 PM

That is very true
I don't like having people in my house either

nonperson 20-12-2021 09:13 AM


Apparently I have got something coming from DPD today too. No idea what it is... O.o but the timeslot thing made me remember this thread - between 10:05 and 11:05.

not_so_insig 20-12-2021 09:13 AM

Morning all! I am up early because I have a coronavirus booster jab this morning. Currently have 2 purring cats next to me and drinking monster energy.

not_so_insig 20-12-2021 09:14 AM

Hello nonperson!

nonperson 20-12-2021 09:16 AM

Hi Dawn! You nearly beat me to the first post of the day!

Hope your jab goes ok. I've got mine tomorrow.

not_so_insig 20-12-2021 09:18 AM

As long as I dont faint or collapse I will be ok. I am scared of needles despite being on a depot.

Cacoethes 20-12-2021 10:17 AM

I wasn't first post!!! :O

Morning guys

Mystery parcel np!
How exciting!

Good luck with your booster dawn!

not_so_insig 20-12-2021 10:28 AM

Thanks Beckie!

Cacoethes 20-12-2021 11:14 AM

On way to see spiderman!!!

tamobhuuta 20-12-2021 12:19 PM

I hope you have a good time Cacoethes.

We arrived at the theatre to find the show had been cancelled. So we went to the pub.

not_so_insig 20-12-2021 12:51 PM

Pub doesn't sound that bad tamobhuuta.

I have been for my jab now. Queue wasn't too bad. I had to sit down afterwards for 15 minutes.

tamobhuuta 20-12-2021 12:56 PM

It was very disappointing, we had taken the train to London.

I didn't have to wait because I had a companion who could drive me and watch for severe reactions.

Cacoethes 20-12-2021 04:06 PM

Spiderman was soooo good!

nonperson 20-12-2021 04:16 PM

I thought they got rid of the 15 minute wait time afterwards to speed things up?

That sucks about the show, Tamo! They should have let you know it was cancelled beforehand really.

I've not seen the first (Tom Holland) Spiderman film yet! So far behind.
