Maybe I'll wait a while to see if I get inspiration when I get hungrier.


OMG they just showed tortious doing the dirty on the 6 o clock news!!

Cacoethes 10-01-2018 06:53 PM

Good plan.

Omg! No doubt there'll be some complaints about that!

Aubergine 10-01-2018 06:55 PM

Hey. :)

Cacoethes 10-01-2018 07:00 PM

Hi Aubergine!
How are you?

chinahorse 10-01-2018 07:16 PM

My gran will be horrified :-P


Hallo :)

Aubergine 10-01-2018 07:27 PM

My new laptop has broken. I will not connect to the internet. I've contacted my stepsister who works in computing and am hoping she can assist! How are you guys?

Cacoethes 10-01-2018 07:30 PM

That sucks!
Especially as its new!

Hopefully your stepsister can help

I'm ok.
Taken meds super early because another early morning tomorrow!
Last one until monday though

chinahorse 10-01-2018 07:40 PM

Oh no that's rubbish about your computer :/ hope it's an easy fix!

Where are you off to tomorrow beckie?

I have a ridiculously bad headache. :(

Cacoethes 10-01-2018 07:42 PM

DBS panel hearing thing at a university

Headaches are awful.
Have you got any pain killers?

chinahorse 10-01-2018 07:47 PM

Fingers crossed it goes well for you.

I'm on a daily cocktail for my fibro so they should be working better than they are. May have to take some of my stronger stuff.

Sketchy 10-01-2018 07:49 PM

Hi all.

That’s a shame about your computer Aubergine.

I hope your headache goes away soon Lillie.

Sketchy 10-01-2018 07:49 PM

Hope it goes well Beckie.

Cacoethes 10-01-2018 07:53 PM

Thanks both :)

Hope it gets better soon Lillie

Aubergine 10-01-2018 08:17 PM

I'm sorry about your headache, Lillie. They're not nice at all.


I really hope it goes well, Beckie. You deserve a good result.


How's it going, Lorraine?


My Stepsister helped me to fix it. :) She really is a computer genius! So glad it's fixed because my module website opens tomorrow and I want to look at some of the pre-module exercises. :)

chinahorse 10-01-2018 08:46 PM

It's not better but it's not worse. I am lightheaded on standing though which points to dehydration so I've chugged squash.

What're you studying aubergine? Looking at module programs is exciting! And yay for the computer being fixed!

Buttons. 10-01-2018 08:47 PM

Hope you feel better soon Lillie.

Sincerely hope it goes well Beckie I'm sure it will.

Aubergine your stepsister sounds like a handie person to have around!

Aubergine 10-01-2018 09:00 PM

Squash is nice! Hope it helps. :)


My stepsister is a handy person to have around! She lives waaaay up north, but came down for Christmas and helped me choose the laptop. :) Now she's helped me to fix it! She is super.

Buttons. 10-01-2018 09:14 PM

Likewise hope the squash helps.

You do realise I'm now tempted to kidnap your stepsister for all my computer woes :P

Aubergine 10-01-2018 09:27 PM

Haha! Go for it, just make sure that she's still able to take phone calls from me. :P

Buttons. 10-01-2018 10:11 PM

*casually stealing Aubergine's stepsister*

Aubergine 10-01-2018 10:23 PM

Haha! :D


I really want chocolate. Would it be wrong to make mug cake?

nonperson 10-01-2018 11:09 PM

It's never wrong to make a mug cake.

I have a mug cake recipe book!

Aubergine 10-01-2018 11:17 PM

A recipe book full of mug cakes?!

nonperson 10-01-2018 11:20 PM

Yes. A mug cake for all occasions.

My favourite is the simple chocolate one with either a gloopy peanut butter or Nutella filling.

nonperson 10-01-2018 11:22 PM

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mug-Cakes-s.../dp/0857832670

Aubergine 10-01-2018 11:24 PM

Black forest gateau mug cake?! :O Nutella in a mug cake sounds glorious. I have only ever had normal chocolate ones.

nonperson 10-01-2018 11:32 PM

You just drop a blob on top before you microwave and it sinks down.

I've not tried the black forest gateau one. Blueberry muffin is nice. And chocolate brownie.

Aubergine 10-01-2018 11:58 PM

Yum! Lots of delicious mug cakes! They're great for a sweet fix when you've got nothing in!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 01:49 AM

I had no idea mug cakes even existed!!!

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 06:40 AM

Mug cakes sound amazing!
I've heard of them but didn't know you could do so many!

Im awake at stupid o clock again.
At least tomorrow I will get a lie in!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 08:32 AM

Don't worry too much about it I'm usually up at stupid o'clock as well.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 08:43 AM

Hi ho hi ho it's off to work I go. Unless anyone wants to go for me? :)

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 08:54 AM

At least there is a starbucks here
Although I have finished my coffee and still have 40 mins to wait.
Damn my fear of being late!!

No thanks Aubergine! :p
Hope you have a good day

Buttons. 11-01-2018 09:03 AM

Ha ha if it's a wheelchair friendly job I might consider it :P

I'm same with worrying about being late, I'm almost always half an hour early. Handy having a Starbucks to pass the time. I also tend to keep books on my phone.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 09:06 AM

Books on the phone is a good idea!
I've just been looking at memes
Which is what I spend most of the day doing anyway tbh :p

Buttons. 11-01-2018 09:08 AM

Ha ha I have tons of books on my phone and you can just download the one you want at a given moment plus it doesn't take up much storage.

Memes are also awesome though :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 09:17 AM

I used to read books on my phone.
I don't really have much time these days though.
And I can't read on the bus because it makes me feel sick.
I
Panel interview thing is soon.
I'm sitting outside the room and there are like 6 people in there. I thought it would only be one or two!!
It's all very formal :ermm:

not_so_insig 11-01-2018 12:15 PM

Hi there!

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 12:32 PM

Im finally cleaning the house
Sooo much mess

chinahorse 11-01-2018 12:38 PM

Just think of how lovely it will be when it's all clean and tidy!

Eska 11-01-2018 01:09 PM

Hi everyone

chinahorse 11-01-2018 01:24 PM

Hi lovely :) how're you?

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 01:30 PM

I feel much better now it's clean.
Lit a scented candle too.

How are you guys?

Eska 11-01-2018 02:08 PM

I'm good, I just had lunch with my friend and now I'm heading home to nap and do some drawing and have a shower.

How are you, Lillie?

Beckie having a clean place is such a good feeling! I hope you enjoy it :)

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 02:14 PM

Sounds like a nice day eska :)

Thanks! Im watching Friends now.
Haven't watched it for years!

chinahorse 11-01-2018 02:28 PM

Yay for a nice clean house beckie :D

Eska that sounds like a lovely day. Where did you guys eat?

I'm rubbish and trying to motivate myself to go and get milk.

not_so_insig 11-01-2018 02:29 PM

I have been for my weekly walk around the park at the bottom of the road. My fingers are cold now.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 02:31 PM

Sorry you're feeling rubbish Lillie
I find it's best to get things like that over and done with, then you can chill!

chinahorse 11-01-2018 02:52 PM

That's actually the least scary thing I have to do. My old and lord is being a bully so I need to call shelter and try and get some legal advice. And it'd be nice if my cpn called me back.

Can't chill till after 5 anyway as theirs building works nearby.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 02:56 PM

That all sounds awful
I wish I had some helpful advice
