The day has felt slow for me... Started well and then just sitting around and doing odd jobs between waves of heat exhaustion.

Cacoethes 26-07-2018 10:18 PM

It really should be cooler by now
But it is not

chinahorse 26-07-2018 11:23 PM

Agreed. And I have it cooler. But it is like 98 degrees in my work place. So hot and airless.

Cacoethes 26-07-2018 11:29 PM

Ugh. Sounds awful

I was just dozing off and then my dad called for literally no reason!

chinahorse 26-07-2018 11:35 PM

Not as awful as the dead tooth pot I discovered was a thing today. It is legit the smell of death itself.

How irritating!

Cacoethes 26-07-2018 11:36 PM

Dead tooth pot sounds gross! :s

nonperson 26-07-2018 11:42 PM

My fan broke again! *cry* Knew it was too good to be true that it had miraculously fixed itself.

Dead tooth pot...! How often does it get emptied?

Cacoethes 26-07-2018 11:58 PM

Oh no np!
Now is not the time for broken fans!!

I can't get back to sleep. I am too hot and also distracted by my skull

nonperson 27-07-2018 12:01 AM

I have another small one but I took it back upstairs because I thought the big one was working again! Grr.

Oh dear, maybe cold shower or something before bed? That's good for cooling down.

nonperson 27-07-2018 12:02 AM

I think dead tooth pot is what all the pulled teeth get put in at the dentist! As grim as it sounds.

That really sucks! Mines not perfect but *touch wood* still functioning.

Jinxie I am also cautiously interested as to what a dead tooth pot is!

nonperson 27-07-2018 12:07 AM

I'm hoping I'm wrong though...

chinahorse 27-07-2018 12:11 AM

NP you are correct. And I think I may have been doing my A levels when this bad boy was last emptied.

Oh no NP :( amazon prime yourself a new one?

nonperson 27-07-2018 12:14 AM

I'll just move the small one back down.

And omg, that really is gross! Why on Earth do they get kept?!

Saying that, I kept my two wisdom teeth when they were taken out... they're probably in a drawer somewhere getting stinky...

chinahorse 27-07-2018 12:16 AM

Lets hope you threw them out NP!

And its because they have to be disposed of in a special way I expect. Bit like we have sharps bins and clinical waste and normal waste and recycling.

Buttons. 27-07-2018 12:18 AM

Why keep teeth?

Then again I have a relative who kept her gorstones (sp?) so lots of weirdos out there :P

Buttons. 27-07-2018 12:19 AM

In case they come back and bite you? :P

nonperson 27-07-2018 12:22 AM

I thought it was cool to keep my teeth! One's got an awesome hole in it.

They'll still be at home somewhere with my parents, haha. =P

Buttons. 27-07-2018 12:23 AM

^ You lovable weirdo :P

nonperson 27-07-2018 12:30 AM

That's me! =D

I also have a sheep's skull on my bookcase which I dug out of the ground at work years ago... and a random bone that the dog found when we were out walking!

Buttons. 27-07-2018 12:36 AM

0.o leaving you and your dog to it I think!

nonperson 27-07-2018 12:39 AM

Yup, definitely a weirdo. =P

nonperson 27-07-2018 12:58 AM

G'night all.

Buttons. 27-07-2018 08:26 AM

Morning all :)

nonperson 27-07-2018 10:14 AM


Cacoethes 27-07-2018 11:04 AM


nonperson 27-07-2018 11:22 AM

Waiting for the rain that's been forecast.

Cacoethes 27-07-2018 11:27 AM

Me too!
I was promised thunderstorms and still nothing but blue skies and sun!!

Buttons. 27-07-2018 11:34 AM

^ oh how heart breaking :P

nonperson 27-07-2018 11:36 AM

I think it's coming in this evening here.

one_step_closer 27-07-2018 12:16 PM

Morning. It's back to being hot here too.

Cacoethes 27-07-2018 12:38 PM

It is heart breaking Buttons!!!

Second train is delayed. The train before my train hasn't left yet and is not going anywhere anytime soon!!
Things were going so well!

Aubergine 27-07-2018 02:05 PM

Finally saw a doctor. 30 minutes escorted leave around the hospital grounds. The hospital I work in. Stupid. /rant


Cacoethes 27-07-2018 03:32 PM

How frustrating aubergine.
Sorry they're being so ****

I made it eventually!
They changed the platform so it didn't end up too delayed.
Me and my nanny have been moaning about the heat non stop since I got here :p

Buttons. 27-07-2018 03:46 PM

Want me to come run over some toes in my chair!

I'll join the chair running over club :P

Beckie, I don't care.

Eska 27-07-2018 03:52 PM

Hi people.

It isn’t that warm at all here!

Aubergine 27-07-2018 03:55 PM

Yes! Run them over!

Glad you got to your nanny's, beckie.

Hi Eska.

Eska 27-07-2018 04:07 PM

Hi Aubergine! I’m sorry you didn’t get any proper leave, that sucks.

Aubergine 27-07-2018 04:40 PM

How are you?

one_step_closer 27-07-2018 04:46 PM

I'm glad you've arrived Beckie, hope you can find a way to cool down.

Sorry you weren't pleased with your review Aubergine, I'm glad you at least got to see the doctor though. I don't have a chair to run over anyone with but I'll find some method of torture so I can join in.

How are you doing Buttons and Eska?

I'm getting annoyed waiting in for a redelivery. I need to go and get my prescription so if it's not here by 4.30pm I'm just going to have to miss it. I shouldn't even have bought it, it's another cat tree which they don't need I just got it because Wish were selling them for just the 2 delivery cost.

nonperson 27-07-2018 04:55 PM

I just heard thunder.

one_step_closer 27-07-2018 04:59 PM

Does that mean rain is definitely on the way?

nonperson 27-07-2018 05:11 PM

Well it rained for about 5 minutes. More thunder and lightning... but it's passed over now. Went out to watch it in the back porch.

Cacoethes 27-07-2018 05:16 PM

It's still blue skies here.
But it is raining in a place less than an hour drive from here so I remain hopeful!!

nonperson 27-07-2018 05:22 PM

My clouds were heading north if that's any indication of where might get it next.

Cacoethes 27-07-2018 05:29 PM

I think I'm more north than you.
My geography isn't fantastic!
I'm in Norfolk

nonperson 27-07-2018 05:34 PM

That is north of London-ish, yes. Sending the clouds up to you then.

Cacoethes 27-07-2018 05:43 PM

Thanks np!!
Still sunny but I remain hopeful!

I'd like to join in with the running over but I am not in a chair.
I can offer some foot stamping?

Cacoethes 27-07-2018 06:28 PM

I shall do that then!!!
And I'll wear some heavy boots :p
