I wanted Chinese last night but when I got there it was ****ing closed :-(

Cacoethes 21-02-2018 09:07 PM

That sucks zombie
Happened to me a while ago.
Was so pissed!

zombiehunter 21-02-2018 09:08 PM

well the chippy next door was open so I got a king rib supper :-D

chinahorse 21-02-2018 09:14 PM

Hallo! Enjoy your dinner zombie.

zombiehunter 21-02-2018 09:15 PM

thanks horsey :-D

Cacoethes 21-02-2018 09:15 PM

That's not too bad then zombie!

Hey Lillie!

chinahorse 21-02-2018 09:27 PM

I burnt my pizza :(

Cacoethes 21-02-2018 09:29 PM

Oh no Lillie! :(
Is it still edible?

Aubergine 21-02-2018 09:37 PM

My brain. I've got my headset on, but my I switched off after about 30 minutes. It's interesting, but I can't watch a film, so why I thought I could sit through a 90 minute tutorial I don't know. :wow:

chinahorse 21-02-2018 09:41 PM

It was yeah. I just eat very pale food usually.

Oh aubergine. That's quite long to concentrate anyway, old you do it in stages?

Cacoethes 21-02-2018 09:43 PM

That is a long time to concentrate!
My classes at college are 90 mins and it's sooo difficult!

At least it was edible then Lillie.
Im the same with most of my food really!

Pomegranate 21-02-2018 09:45 PM

90 minutes sounds unreasonable lol. But then I guess uni lectures can be upto three hours. They’re awful lol.

Cacoethes 21-02-2018 09:46 PM

3 hours?!
Jeez!

Aubergine 21-02-2018 09:47 PM

I'll probably listen to it again when a recording of it is posted up. It's quite an important one, because we're going through the first assignment.


How're you doing?

Pomegranate 21-02-2018 09:49 PM

Most are only an hour or two but Anatomy and physiology was often three hours. I HATED it! You can get note takers and stuff at uni though which helps.

Aubergine 21-02-2018 09:51 PM

Three hours?! Not a chance! :P

Cacoethes 21-02-2018 09:52 PM

I find 90 mins bad enough!!

Pomegranate 21-02-2018 09:53 PM

Me too. Comfortable concentration span is about 20 minutes lok

chinahorse 21-02-2018 09:55 PM

Yeah, long lectures or tutorials were just pointless. No kne pays attention to all of it. Waste of our money!

Cacoethes 21-02-2018 09:56 PM

Same Emma!

Yeah I dont know anyone who would be able to concentrate for that long!

Aubergine 21-02-2018 10:00 PM

Thankfully tutor will be posting the slides on the tutor group forum and I can listen/watch again. Could do with a note taker!

Cacoethes 21-02-2018 10:02 PM

That's good Aubergine :)

Im going to bed.
I feel so so awful!
Terrified of being sick so nausea is really awful for me!!

Night night all and sleep well :)

Pomegranate 21-02-2018 10:02 PM

Can you not get a note taker Aubergine?

Pomegranate 21-02-2018 10:02 PM

Night Beckie. I really think you should get medical advice btw though!

Aubergine 21-02-2018 10:04 PM

I don't know. I've half applied for DSA, but need to send the paper bit with the letter my CC wrote off. Just... Don't want to! :P


I agree with Emma, Beckie. I hope you sleep well though. <3

Aubergine 21-02-2018 11:54 PM

I just asked my sister if she thinks Mum will go mad if I tell her I'm getting a cat... She does not know yet!

Pomegranate 22-02-2018 12:13 AM

Why would your mum go mad?

Aubergine 22-02-2018 12:31 AM

I don't really know. I just had a feeling. Turner out that my feeling was completely wrong and she said that she thinks I'll make a brilliant cat Mum and that it'll be lovely to have someone to come home to after work etc. I am looking forward to coming in my flat and having someone there. Another presence, you know? Couldn't live with another human, but with a cat, no prblem!



How're you doing, Emma?

Pomegranate 22-02-2018 12:43 AM

Awwww I’m glad she was so supportive. I think it’s a great idea! Not too bad bad thanks. My CC stayed for 20 mins and chatted about some stuff and then had kitten cuddles for a couple of hours. How are you?

Aubergine 22-02-2018 12:59 AM

Mum did also say that cats don't like messy flats or washing up mountains, so I guess the little one is going to be motivation for keeping the place presentable. Effort. :P


Oh I'm glad that you were able to talk to her for a while. Did it help? Kitten cuddles sound nice. What kind of cuddles does your cat like:

Pomegranate 22-02-2018 01:01 AM

He doesn’t like being grabbed for hugs. You kind of need to let him come to you and then he curls up for snuggles :-)

Pomegranate 22-02-2018 01:01 AM

He has helped me keep my flat a bit tidier though :-)

Aubergine 22-02-2018 01:04 AM

Ah he sounds lush. Do you have any pictures? Hooray for helping keeo your flat more tidy. Kitten motivation! Im hoping for some too.

Pomegranate 22-02-2018 01:06 AM

Wont let me upload from my phone. Boo. Hes a black and white gent. Kitty snuggles are def the best motivator!

Oh he's very handsome! Not a position I would choose to sleep in, but he looks so chilled out. :) What lovely kiten snuggles. :)


Does your kitty have a kitty witching hour? Where he goes a bit wild? My friends have warned me of this phenomina!

Pomegranate 22-02-2018 01:28 AM

More like a witching 2 hours! Between 1-3 he’s pretty crazy!

Aubergine 22-02-2018 01:40 AM

Hehe, super wild cat! My friend's cat is called Herbie. He's such a little cutie. Like a baby though. You pick him up and he's all purring and lovely, and when you try and put him down gently he hangs on to you so have to keep hugging him!

Pomegranate 22-02-2018 01:45 AM

Awwww that sounds so cute! Leo aka mr Meowy only wants hugs on his terms!

Aubergine 22-02-2018 02:02 AM

Nothing wrong with wanting hugs on his terms! Sounds a bit like a human. :P A very handsome human. Mr Meowy is an excellend nickname for a cat! Is yours quite vocal? I hope my will like to sit next to me on the sofa when she gets used to me. :)

Pomegranate 22-02-2018 02:04 AM

He’s an indoor cat and gets quite vocal during his mad two hours or if he’s not been out for a few days (he comes places with me). He does sit next to me though and curl up on my lap. I’m sure Alice will too!

chinahorse 22-02-2018 08:54 AM

Good morning people :) I don't wanna get out of bed and get ready for work.

Emma he is adorable <3

Aubergine 22-02-2018 09:17 AM

Morning Lillie! :) What time is work? Hope it's not too bad for you. How're you feeling today?


I've got an appointment at the GP for 9:10am. Only took my phone 113 redials to get through to them (they were engaged lots!) :wow:

Aubergine 22-02-2018 09:19 AM

You take your cat out? That's so cool. I've been looking at the backpacks you can get for cats. They seem quite expensive, but it would be cool for us to go on adventures!

Eska 22-02-2018 10:33 AM

Morning both :)

Lillie boo for work! I hope it goes ok and is quiet for you. It's pretty cold here so maybe it'll be the same for you.

Aubergine 133 redials is ridiculous! I hope your appointment went ok.

Aubergine 22-02-2018 10:52 AM

Hey Eska! How're you?


Appointment went... Meh. She was nice, but said there was not really anything they could do and it might be like this for 12 months. :plain:

Eska 22-02-2018 01:46 PM

I'm good thank you! Attempting to pack for going away/sort out travel insurance/generally organise myself.

Oh that sounds frustrating :/

Pomegranate 22-02-2018 01:56 PM

Oooh is that for your Germany trip? Or did I just imagine that?


That’s frustrating Aubergine. Did she suggest anything to help?

Cacoethes 22-02-2018 02:57 PM

Hello people

Pomegranate 22-02-2018 03:17 PM

Hello Beckie! How are you? What you upto?
