The nice side of me automatically said "Yes of course you can share my cheese!" and then my selfish cheese-loving side butted in and said no. =P

I still have internet, looks like it'll be gone from tomorrow then.
I finally applied for an animal care course today, one more step to becoming a vet!

How is everyone's evening?

nonperson 17-08-2018 09:05 PM

Hi Masika. That's exciting applying for the course. =) I have no idea how people can be vets - I'd be a blubbering mess if I was one.

My evening's ok. Abandoned the idea of going to the shop in favour of laziness and tv.

Deborrah 17-08-2018 09:09 PM

I had to help a vet put a dog down before and I took the opportunity to test myself if I could be a vet. But you could see that the dog understood that he had to go, and he wanted to go, so there was peace on all sides. I think it helped him more than watching him suffer.

Sometimes it's better to be lazy!

nonperson 17-08-2018 09:12 PM

Just reading that makes me tearful, even understanding that it was peaceful. I seriously admire people who can do what you did there.

Laziness is always good compared to going shopping.

Deborrah 17-08-2018 09:19 PM

What is funny, though, is that I was fine during that procedure, and I love watching surgeries on animals and I'm fine. But as soon as I watch an animal movie, like Homeward Bound, I break down in tears as soon as I see an animal on screen.

I don't like shopping, laziness for me :P

chinahorse 17-08-2018 09:26 PM

That made me sad too NP.

Sorry I'm being flake rn btw.

nonperson 17-08-2018 09:26 PM

That's strange! I've never seen Homeward Bound and based on that I probably shouldn't! I can't watch animal rescue programmes or anything like that. Far too sensitive.

Shopping is just the worst thing ever... I will have to go tomorrow evening instead though. =(

nonperson 17-08-2018 09:26 PM

Hi Lillie. =)

No need to apologise.

Deborrah 17-08-2018 09:50 PM

Homeward Bound is sad but it has a happy ending :)

I hate shopping, unless I have money, aha.

chinahorse 17-08-2018 10:16 PM

I've not seen that film either.

chinahorse 18-08-2018 09:33 AM

Morning guys :)

Deborrah 18-08-2018 11:05 AM

Morning everyone.
I still have internet which is weird. It was supposed to be cut off yesterday. Maybe it's because it's the weekend.

How is everyone?

chinahorse 18-08-2018 11:10 AM

Don't moan! Thats a good thing right.

I'm considering a nap. Have finished cleaning the house and done 1 load of laundry and am sleepy now.

How're you?

Deborrah 18-08-2018 11:28 AM

Definitely a good thing!
A nap sounds good.

I'm okay. Going to meet my dad today.

Serendipity. 18-08-2018 12:47 PM

A nap sounds nice. I am also considering a nap!

Hope you're all having a good day!

chinahorse 18-08-2018 01:20 PM

What're you guys gunna do masika?

Hope you're enjoying your nap more than me. I decided to shower and do laundry beforehand so am now waiting for that to finish so I can nap.

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 04:08 PM

Hey guys!
I'm back home :)

Buttons. 18-08-2018 04:40 PM

^ Oh no :(

Cannot believe people haven't seen Homeward Bound!!!!!! *falls over*

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 04:48 PM

I've seen homeward bound.
Don't see why all the hype!

nonperson 18-08-2018 04:52 PM

I'm not sure I have any intention of ever watching it.

nonperson 18-08-2018 04:52 PM

And welcome home, Beckie. =P

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 04:54 PM

Thanks np!!
I still need to unpack and sort my meds out but that can wait!!

nonperson 18-08-2018 04:59 PM

Have some quiet time first.

Buttons. 18-08-2018 05:11 PM

YOU DISGUST ME. It is one of the best films of ALL TIME. Think of Shadow for a start!

It's worth watching I swear.

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 05:13 PM

Yep! Definitely needed.
Over a week with no alone time at all!
Had to share a room with step sis
Peopleing is hard!

not_so_insig 18-08-2018 05:27 PM

I am going to a gig tonight so am not going to be around. My dad keeps on trying to put me off as I am going alone. However saying that Mike will be there.

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 05:44 PM

I've been to gigs alone. Still lots of fun!!

not_so_insig 18-08-2018 05:50 PM

Yeah I will be ok I think. I just wish my dad wouldn't keep on trying to put me off. It is in the town where it's relatively safe if it was in my nearest city then I would be more scared. I did say that he could buy a ticket but he declined.

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 05:52 PM

I'm sure you'll be fine!

not_so_insig 18-08-2018 06:00 PM

Yeah not sure if it's my kind of music but I got a free ticket so only have to pay for drinks. I am actually looking forward to it.

chinahorse 18-08-2018 06:05 PM

Hes probably just concerned about your safety Dawn. Saying that I hope you have a good time!

Ah welcome home Beckie! Peopleing is exhausting I agree.

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 06:21 PM

Thanks Lillie!
Im meeting illusive brother for lunch tomorrow but apart from that, I have no peopling to do for a while!
Need to recharge!

How are you?

chinahorse 18-08-2018 06:48 PM

That sounds nice and low key though. Where you guys going?

I'm rather meh tbh. Need to go to the shop for milk and squash and plasters but cba. And the idiots changed the coco pops recipe and they are rubbish now.

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 06:59 PM

Just to the local spoons!
He very kindly offered to come here rather than me get the train so at least I won't have to go far, even if the only reason he'll want tp come here is because they apparently do pizza in my local spoons :p

If you get it over with then you can chill.
Can understand its difficult when you're feeling meh though. *sends motivation*

I actually had coco pops this morning for the first time in a very long time and I thought they didn't taste as nice as they used to!

chinahorse 18-08-2018 07:09 PM

haha well whatever the reason at least you don't have to travel!

I really don't want to go out :( I am very very *insert word*

They're less chocolatey aren't they? Like they now taste like the own brands.

And theres nothing on the tele.

nonperson 18-08-2018 07:10 PM

What have they done to coco pops?! Have they taken all the sugar out so they just taste of cocoa powder? =/

nonperson 18-08-2018 07:10 PM

I also have to go out and really don't want to. x.x

I've actually left the house three times already today and that's far too much.

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 07:17 PM

Yep, I am well and truly sick of traveling now!!!

I'm not sure what they've done to them but they taste much less chocolatey

nonperson 18-08-2018 07:23 PM

Used to love Coco Pops. =(

chinahorse 18-08-2018 07:39 PM

Me too NP.

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 07:43 PM

Me too

Serendipity. 18-08-2018 08:51 PM

This is heartbreaking news about coco pops :'(

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 08:56 PM

It really is!
I was so disappointed

chinahorse 18-08-2018 09:14 PM

Me too. Especially as they aren't exactly cheap.

New sheets and clean jarmies time :)

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 09:21 PM

Ooo new sheets and clean PJs are the best!!

nonperson 18-08-2018 10:28 PM

Chocolate covered pretzels are better! Omnom.

Cacoethes 18-08-2018 10:33 PM

I'm scared of pretzels

nonperson 18-08-2018 10:37 PM

What's scary about them?
