Shirayuki 07-12-2019 12:59 PM

a go gurt packet:
did you know that half the DNA in our body is an EXACT match to the DNA in a banana?

nonperson 07-12-2019 01:03 PM

Erf... waiting awkwardly in the opticians for someone to help me with glasses. =(

Cacoethes 07-12-2019 01:14 PM

That's a fun fact about the DNA!
Love facts like that

Hope you manage to get some assistance np!

We are nearly in Norwich so I'll see you all later!

Shirayuki 07-12-2019 01:22 PM

see ya!
:( hope help comes soon np!

Shirayuki 07-12-2019 01:35 PM

hows it going np?

Shirayuki 07-12-2019 02:01 PM

what do the new glasses look like?

nonperson 07-12-2019 02:21 PM

Didn't buy any in the end. Despite a very patient lady helping me I got too anxious and ran away. Will just stick with the other ones I hate wearing for now.

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 02:30 PM

Can you do me a favour and stop doing lots of short one sentence posts at once shirayuki? It's just that I find it hard to follow when I have to scroll through lots of posts as I am on a phone. Either combine them into one big post or wait until someone posts before replying again. I would be super grateful if you could do that as I am getting stressed out trying to keep up because I might miss someone's important post.

Shirayuki 07-12-2019 02:33 PM

:( that sucks, better luck next time, np?
sorry not so ing i'll try
its what i wanted to do but i wasn't sure how to edit now i know and i'll try
sorry again!
it just won't let me see new posts unless i either reload or post another

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 02:42 PM

It's ok dont worry too much shriyaki. I am sure that it wasnt intentional. I sense that you are very young so probably didn't realise. I don't know if you're aware but this is a mh site so a lot of us have concentration problems and get confused easily.

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 02:58 PM

I just saw a video on Fb where some ladies sing a Christmas song about trying not to be a C*** and now it's stuck in my head.

Aww NP, I know that feeling. Can you try one of those online things where you upload a photo and virtually try the glasses and/or order some to try at home and send the ones you don't want back?

How are you Dawn?

I am 100% banana.

Shirayuki 07-12-2019 03:02 PM

yeah, i'm 13...
the only reason i joined was because i know its a MH site and it provides help for me and i don't have to put up an act and if i need a distraction to keep me from doing "things"...
i get confused pretty easily too
sorry again

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 03:03 PM

I am ok thanks Lindsay. The kitties were very interested to see what was in my beauty advent calendar. I got a bath fizzer today yesterday was a nail brush.

Shirayuki 07-12-2019 03:03 PM

:)
100% banana?
the video description you gave is confuzzling
er whats a bath fizzer??

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 03:06 PM

They were singing about people who don't like Christmas and telling them not to be a *swear word* the worst swear word out there.

I'm glad you're ok Dawn. That sounds like a cool calendar, did you say you have one for the cats too?

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 03:07 PM

A bath fizzer is something that you put in the bath water and it let's out a stream of air bubbles while it melts.

Yes Lindsay I have one for the cats.

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 03:09 PM

Do you remember that story from last year where a little girl was eating cat treats because she thought it was a human advent calendar?

I got my first Christmas card today.

Shirayuki 07-12-2019 03:13 PM

cool! from who?
oh here in the US those are called Bath bombs if thats what your trying to describe
how many kitties do you have?
oh, that makes some sense, thanks
to be honest I just heard of that story for the first time right now
gotta go, my younger sisters calling
see ya ^^

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 03:17 PM

I had had 2 cards already. One is from my friend who I am supposed to be meeting on the 18th unless her husband is really bad that day (he suffers from dementia) so I texted her and said that I haven't forgotten her just that I had planned to give her card when I saw her. Plus I need more stamps but I am going to the post office on either Monday or Tues next week as I have 6 things to post so will pick up some then.

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 03:24 PM

The card is from one of my pen pals.

I hope your friend is able to meet up with you Dawn. Is your local post office busy at this time of the year?

chinahorse 07-12-2019 03:24 PM

Hope your post office is less busy than mine was this morning. Had to queue for 10 minutes. Then posted the item but forget to get a stamp. Doh.

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 03:24 PM

Ninja Lillie, we were thinking the same thing!

I hope the stamp was for something else not for the thing you posted?

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 03:29 PM

I always go to the main town one as I dont like the one in the next village. Plus it's only open part time and I get confused about the opening times. It's not too bad the main one except they always get you to use the self service checkouts which confuse the heck outta me. Like I dont know if it's a small parcel or just a large letter so I expect you to tell me.

chinahorse 07-12-2019 03:29 PM

Lol no, for a separate card that I knew I was going to but hadn't yet got.
It's for my gran cos she is surgically attached to her hot water bottle. And will find this secretly hilarious after telling me off for it being rude.

Ok well ryl is **** and wont let me attach a pic but it's a card, two cartoon old ladies watching a hot water bottle walk down the street with the caption 'bethes good in bed'

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 03:33 PM

I wouldn't like to have to use self service at a post office either. I've never even heard of that but I know you can buy postage online and print it out.

What have you got her Lillie, you have to tell now!

Edit: inner lol!

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 03:35 PM

Also what I find annoying is the fact that they always ask you what's in it. I understand for overseas parcel since you have to fill out a form and also they have to check that it's not prohibited in that country. But inland ones? I dont fancy saying "two bottles of lager and a glass" to the attendant.

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 03:36 PM

They could maybe just ask if you've checked the list of things you're not allowed to send, although that would take more time than them just asking you what's in it.

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 03:40 PM

Ps the bottles of lager and glass are for Lorraine. It's local lager so she wouldn't have tasted it. She keeps on giving me presents so I thought that I would return the favour.

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 03:41 PM

How is Lorraine doing?

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 04:04 PM

She's generally ok though she has a cold atm. I discovered yesterday that my brother has had the flu jab this year. It's only my mum in the family that hasn't had it.

chinahorse 07-12-2019 04:27 PM

Why is it so cold?!

And why do the people access the road have what appears to be a mini big top in their front room?

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 04:48 PM

Perhaps it's a pet bed Lillie? Or a kiddie toy?

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 04:48 PM

Do they have children?

Edit: So many ninjas these days!

chinahorse 07-12-2019 04:58 PM

Not a clue. Looks substantial though.

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 05:15 PM

Hope you find out Lillie.

chinahorse 07-12-2019 05:31 PM

Chances of ever finding out are 0. But I'm not bothered by it. Was just a wondering.

nonperson 07-12-2019 06:25 PM

Evening everyone.

Cacoethes 07-12-2019 06:31 PM

Hey guys
We are on a (very delayed) train home after a successful day out shopping
Also I had a cocktail with dinner

nonperson 07-12-2019 06:58 PM

Very fancy. =)

Cacoethes 07-12-2019 07:06 PM

It was prosecco, pink gin and strawberry syrup I think!
With an edible flower in it. But I didn't eat the flower because it felt weird

nonperson 07-12-2019 07:09 PM

Did it have a silly name? Eating flowers is a bit weird.

Cacoethes 07-12-2019 07:24 PM

'Pink blush' I think so not overly weird
Yeah that's what I thought

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 07:45 PM

You should have eaten the flower then because you are weird. :tongue2:

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 07:56 PM

I once ate an edible flower. It didn't really taste or anything.

one_step_closer 07-12-2019 07:58 PM

Sounds kind of pointless then. Other than making things look pretty of course.

Cacoethes 07-12-2019 08:43 PM

I cannot deny that I am weird!

Cacoethes 07-12-2019 09:29 PM

I am home
It has been a successful day!

not_so_insig 07-12-2019 09:44 PM

That's good Beckie. Did you buy anything at the Christmas market?
