Aubergine 26-10-2018 12:15 AM

What do you do for lunch, Person?

What're you planning to do at uni, Lucy?

I can understand the fear of leaking! I have a heated underblanket. I have so many warm things!

Aubergine 26-10-2018 12:16 AM

6:30 start?! Nope. Just... Nope. I just about manage 9am!

nonperson 26-10-2018 12:20 AM

That was onlyl in the summer when it was ridiculouslt hot!!

Kbda got used to it. It was light out so wasn't that bad,

Normal 7:30 start all winter now.

chinahorse 26-10-2018 07:27 AM

Morning all. A heated throw is top of my Christmas list! I'd be too hot with a heared under blanket- do you find you can feel the wires aubergine?

Not sure I could manage a 7.30 start either np! I get up at 6.20, on a bus at 7.30 and start 8.30 (more like 8.15) and that is hard enough!!

It's a miserable day out :( so I hope you all have nice plans to cheer you up.

nonperson 26-10-2018 07:44 AM

I get up at a similar time to you, Lillie. But I have an 8 minute commute.

For some reason it’s drizzling here...

Indigo. 26-10-2018 10:08 AM

Morning all!

I used to have a stuffed toy that you could microwave as an alternative to hot water bottle! No danger of leakage!

How is everyone today?

It's nice outside but I think a bit cold.

I used to do English Lit in uni before I had to quit. I'm planning to go back to do that, perhaps a joint degree with Classics!

Eska 26-10-2018 10:08 AM

It was drizzly here this morning too.

An 8 minute commute sounds good! Though I am not sure I would like living that close to work. I'm not far away at the moment but door to door is 45 minutes or so - walk then ten minutes on the train then walk.

nonperson 26-10-2018 10:30 AM

Drizzle turned into proper rain, yay. =) But not for long.

Yeah I’m only like 3 miles away from work.

Indigo. 26-10-2018 10:39 AM

I really struggle to get to places due to executive dysfunction, so I'm hoping I can get a place close to the university, and a job close to home.

It's been uncharacteristically warm in the Land of Vampyres. I had to take of my hoodie and coat when I got off the plane. I kind of miss Welsh weather, it's what I'm used to I guess.

not_so_insig 26-10-2018 11:50 AM

It's been a good and bad post day. Good because I have recieved a card from post crossing but bad because I have recieved my pip assessment date. My cpn is off this week so I can't phone her to check that the date is ok.

Indigo. 26-10-2018 01:31 PM

Hi there Dawn. Is the PIP assessment soon? I hope you can find out soon if it's all good with your CPN.

Buttons. 26-10-2018 01:37 PM

Hope you find out soon if the date is okay Dawn.

I just bought a load of stuff for my dog and last nigth played Friends themed monopoly for the first time (was awesome!!)

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 02:18 PM

Friends monopoly sounds epic!

Just been for my swim.
It wasnt too busy at all

Eska 26-10-2018 02:34 PM

Sounds like fun Buttons :)

Beckie I'm glad the pool wasn't too busy. Did you have a good swim?

Work is quiet today!

Indigo. 26-10-2018 02:51 PM

Friends monopoly does sound like great fun! I love monopoly anyway, but this sounds cooler! Hope you let dog enjoys the stuff you got Buttons.

Glad it wasn't busy Beckie.

Also glad work is quiet Eska!

one_step_closer 26-10-2018 03:11 PM

Monopoly is boring. *runs away*

Buttons. 26-10-2018 03:36 PM

Friends monopoly was epic *shuns Lins*

Glad you had a good swim Beckie.

I'm just watching an old Spiderman film because I'm cool like that.

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 03:43 PM

I did have a good swim thanks :)

I quite like monopoly!
Unless we're playing with my lawyer step dad who tries to apply contract law to everything :eyeroll:

Indigo. 26-10-2018 03:46 PM

Monopoly with lawyers doesn't sound particularly fun!

I am a fan of Spiderman movies. And comics. I haven't seen the new one though.

Buttons. 26-10-2018 03:46 PM

I'm glad :)

Ha ha your stepdad sounds like definitely the wrong person to play Monopoly with.

Buttons. 26-10-2018 03:47 PM

I haven't seen all the Spiderman films only two of the early ones I think.

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 03:51 PM

Yeah he's awful! :p

I think I've only seen the earlier ones.
Spiderman is probably my least favourite in the marvel universe

Buttons. 26-10-2018 03:58 PM

I think Spiderman is okay but obv prefer X-men etc.

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 04:04 PM


Indigo. 26-10-2018 04:06 PM

In spite of being obsessed with the X-Men I haven't actually seen any of the films! I think I'm afraid I won't like them and will be as upset as I was with Vanessa's portrayal in Deadpool.
(She was supposed to be a mutant, as seen in my avatar!)

Which Marvel characters/films do you prefer then, Beckie?

Buttons. 26-10-2018 04:16 PM

I would say the X-men films are worth watching but you do have to let go of the fact there are some character differences etc.

Never seen/read Deadpool, worth doing so I assume?

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 04:23 PM

My favourites are Thor, Iron Man and deadpool. And the X men!

I enjoyed the deadpool films

Eska 26-10-2018 04:32 PM

I've never seen or read any Marvel anything

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 04:47 PM

You should! They are good

Indigo. 26-10-2018 04:51 PM

I'll watch them eventually. I'll just have to brace myself!

The Deadpool films aren't too bad. Really enjoyed the first one. I think the second one is objectively quite good, but it comes with a

trigger warning. The comics are great but I haven't read nearly enough of them!

Eska 26-10-2018 05:05 PM

Maybe I will one day... My attention span for films is rubbish, though, and I find comics and graphic novels really difficult to read.

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 05:12 PM

I haven't read many of the comics tbh
Would like to though!

nonperson 26-10-2018 05:39 PM

Evening all.

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 05:46 PM

Hey np
How are you?

nonperson 26-10-2018 05:54 PM

I'm alright. Cold... my heating doesn't seem to want to turn on. But I have Daim Dairy Milk <3

How're you?

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 05:56 PM

Oh no!
This is not the right time of year for heating not to come on :/
Mmmm chocolate!

I am also a bit chilly but still refusing to put heat on!

nonperson 26-10-2018 06:05 PM

I thought I might treat myself to some heat tonight!

But I guess if it won't come on the decision is made for me! =P

It's done this before... I can't remember how I fixed it.

chinahorse 26-10-2018 06:11 PM

Hallo :-)

nonperson 26-10-2018 06:15 PM

Hi Lillie. That's a big smiley face. =D

chinahorse 26-10-2018 06:17 PM

And you've given me a big one to match also!

nonperson 26-10-2018 06:20 PM

Yep but not as yellow, haha.

chinahorse 26-10-2018 06:21 PM

Lol I didn't do that I did the symbols not knowing ryl would do that!

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 06:22 PM

Hi Lillie!

I have really bad pins and needles in my leg
Its so annoying!

nonperson 26-10-2018 06:30 PM

I have microwaved Bagpuss for warmth.

Pins and needles is awful. Are you sitting strangely?

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 06:37 PM

I have a hot water bottle

Yeah I was sitting weirdly
Its gone now!

nonperson 26-10-2018 06:40 PM

Problem solved. =P

Speaking of solved problems, my heating is working! But I had to put it on manual rather than the auto setting.

So now I have heating, a warm Bagpuss, hot chocolate and a real non-microwaveable cat for warmth!

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 06:45 PM

You sound lovely and cosy!!

chinahorse 26-10-2018 06:47 PM

I am jealous. I'm still not home and I'm starting to loose feeling in my fingers. Well they are very very sore and cold.

nonperson 26-10-2018 06:53 PM

I've been in the cold and rain all day so deserve some cosiness.

Oh no, Lillie! Have you got long to go before you're home??

Cacoethes 26-10-2018 06:54 PM

Oh no Lillie
Hope you get home soon
