That's quite impressive, Dawn!

I used to get ID'd all the time in my late 20s... Life hasn't done my face any good in my 30s apparently, lol. =P

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 09:24 PM

Could have been the mask!

I don't buy things that require ID tbh so who knows! I may have to buy some alcohol or something to try it out with the mask
I'll be 29 next week though so probably not

nonperson 02-10-2020 09:31 PM

It probably was that, although I'd bought alcohol before with a mask on and didn't get ID'd. I even found a self service till where I could clear the check ID thing that flashed up myself!

Well I'm 36 and got ID'd for alcohol with a mask on so you might get ID'd! It's a nice confidence boost, haha.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 09:35 PM

I really want to try it but don't know what to buy!
I don't even drink!

nonperson 02-10-2020 09:37 PM

Buy me some cider. =P

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 09:56 PM

Will do! :p

nonperson 02-10-2020 10:02 PM


I mean like, it's a totally worthwhile experiment. =P

not_so_insig 02-10-2020 10:04 PM

Buy an nice bottle of wine Beckie. Or wkd.

Cacoethes 02-10-2020 10:08 PM

It totally is np! :p

I do like wkd. Not too keen on wine. Not enough to buy a whole bottle anyway.
It's a friend's birthday coming up actually and he really like jack daniels so I could get him a bottle of that.

I'm off to bed now chaps!
Nighty night. Sleep well!

nonperson 02-10-2020 10:11 PM

Wine is gross. I haven't had wkd in ages. Do they even sell Bacardi breezers any more? Buying the JD would be a good chance to try it out. =P

Sleep well. =)

Cacoethes 03-10-2020 10:36 AM

I don't even know if bacardi breezers are still a thing.
My 16 year old sister drinks smirnoff ice. Among othet things :eyeroll:

Morning everyone.
It's a horrible day! But I'm off to see Jasmine in a bit

one_step_closer 03-10-2020 11:58 AM

Morning, I hope seeing Jasmine makes you feel better.

Cacoethes 03-10-2020 12:22 PM

Unfortunately I had a seizure at the bus stop so I can't go over.
But mum said they will come over here which is nice

chinahorse 03-10-2020 01:24 PM

Oh that sucks beckie. Glad they are coming to see you instead :)

Tipping it down here. So Im going to catch the bus to town later which takes as long as the walk lol. But better than getting soaked! Doing coursework, laundry and cleaning the house today.

Cacoethes 03-10-2020 01:34 PM

Yeah it will be nice :)

It's tipping it down here too Lillie!
Getting the bus sounds like a good plan!
Hope you get on ok with your tasks today

chinahorse 03-10-2020 01:38 PM

Thanks, no choice. Have to get them done.

Cacoethes 03-10-2020 01:39 PM

Yeah some things just have to be done.
I'll probably have to do laundry tomorrow

chinahorse 03-10-2020 02:02 PM


I tend to have to do all the big jobs at the weekend or whatever days I have off, get home to late to want to do much after work.

My lunch is taking ages to cook and Im hungry.

Cacoethes 03-10-2020 02:14 PM

Yeah it's hard to do stuff after work. Not that I'd know now but I used to.

What are you having for lunch?

chinahorse 03-10-2020 02:24 PM

Chips and fake nuggets.

Cacoethes 03-10-2020 02:44 PM


chinahorse 03-10-2020 03:28 PM

It filled a hole!

What time are your mum and jasmine coming over?

Cacoethes 03-10-2020 05:45 PM

They've just left.
We had a nice time.
Mum and my sister went out for a coffee and me and Jasmine watched Camp Rock 2 and had some lunch and a chat

not_so_insig 03-10-2020 06:11 PM

Glad you had an nice time Beckie.

I didnt wake up until nearly 3 pm oops. Not that I have much to do anyway since due to lockdown my parents can't see me and I can't see them. Fed my kitties and had an coffee but apart from texting people I haven't done much.

Cacoethes 03-10-2020 06:23 PM

Thanks Dawn

You must have needed the sleep!

not_so_insig 03-10-2020 07:34 PM

Yes I must have.

It's nasty weather outside here but fortunately I can watch TV.

Cacoethes 03-10-2020 07:55 PM

Not nice weather here either.
Its been raining all day.
I had my seizure in the rain so I was soaked!

Cacoethes 03-10-2020 08:58 PM

There's a hole in one of my hot water bottles.
I found this out the hard way

not_so_insig 03-10-2020 11:42 PM

Hope you didnt get scalded Beckie!

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 11:19 AM

I did get scalded!

I jump scared myself awake earlier.
I can't remember what I was dreaming about but there was a jump scare and I was startled awake!
Not nice

chinahorse 04-10-2020 12:44 PM

Ouch beckie! And not nice to be startled awake either.

I need some motivation to keep going with this coursework. Got loads to do and also have to hoover still.

Already done a bedding change and put that on to wash and emptied the bins and put the washing up away. However all I can think about is food. May have to go put the oven on.

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 12:52 PM

*hands out motivation*
You can do this Lillie. You are more than capable and you're doing so well!

It's about lunchtime anyway so putting the oven on sounds like a good plan

chinahorse 04-10-2020 01:07 PM

Thanks. Its easy just laborious. And I could have had it done at a leisurely pace and still finished it if work had told me they weren't going to bother with watching me and to just write it.

Put a pizza in the oven and bedding in the dryer and got a mocha. Ive done 3 bits of coursework today so far.

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 01:09 PM

That's so bad of your work to do that.

Well done! That's awesome!

chinahorse 04-10-2020 01:15 PM

My work is horrendous in every way. I wish that was the worst thing they have not done or done but its the tip of a rotten iceberg lettuce with them.

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 01:32 PM

Ugh, you have to put up with so much.
I really admire you Lillie

chinahorse 04-10-2020 01:43 PM

Ack no, I throw tantrums often enough and moan a lot.

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 01:48 PM

Who doesn't!

yoyogirl 04-10-2020 01:54 PM

You can do it China Horse, keep on going

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 03:12 PM

4 days, 2 hours and 17 minutes until my holiday destination gets revealed!

not_so_insig 04-10-2020 03:19 PM

Ooh exciting Beckie! Sorry to hear you scalded yourself hope you arent too badly hurt.

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 03:35 PM

I'm super excited!
And the weather forecast for it looks good too. Around 23

Thanks. I'm ok. No lasting damage!

How are you today?

not_so_insig 04-10-2020 03:56 PM

I am bored. Naff all on the telly. Too wet to go to the park. Usually I spend my weekends with my parents but because of local lockdown I can't because the rules are even stricter than last time.

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 04:01 PM

There really is nothing on the telly.
Lockdowns suck.
I can imagine it won't be long until we're back in lockdown too.
Hopefully not until I'm back from holiday!

not_so_insig 04-10-2020 04:09 PM

Apart from cooking my tea and possibly washing my hair I have nothing to do. Even Lorraine was surprised how strict the lockdown rules are.

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 04:15 PM

I really need to wash my hair but I'm not doing it in the freezing cold water.
So I'm going to the pool tomorrow to have a swim and a hot shower!

How is Lorraine these days?

not_so_insig 04-10-2020 04:23 PM

She's mostly ok. She sends me lots of photos of Molly. Tbf I send her lots of photos of my cats.

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 04:30 PM

I'm glad she's mostly ok.
I do think about her still

not_so_insig 04-10-2020 04:32 PM

She said that she thinks about you too Beckie and Buttons. Speaking of Buttons we havent seen her for a while.

Cacoethes 04-10-2020 04:39 PM

That's true.
I hope she's doing ok
