I am watching the horsey action this afternoon and trying to avoid the football. Casualty is on dead late tonight because of the football so fingers crossed that it doesn't go into extra time. Unfortunately most of my family are Liverpool football fans so I cant avoid it. I only live a 90 min drive from Liverpool and there's direct trains to Liverpool from my town.

nonperson 21-12-2019 01:20 PM

My sister lives in Liverpool. No direct trains from here though! But there is a very long road.

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 01:25 PM

Just been to asda.
It's chaos in there!!
And why do people feel the need to take the ENTIRE family shopping??

nonperson 21-12-2019 01:27 PM

Special pre-Christmas outing maybe?

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 01:41 PM

It's ridiculous!!!

But I have sushi so all is fine now

not_so_insig 21-12-2019 02:07 PM

That's good Beckie (about the sushi not the chaos).

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 02:35 PM

The goonies is on :)

not_so_insig 21-12-2019 02:49 PM

Olympia is on :-)

chinahorse 21-12-2019 03:09 PM

Its dressage though. Boring.

not_so_insig 21-12-2019 03:15 PM

Yes but there's show jumping to come. I dont find dressage boring though.

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 03:24 PM

I used to do dressage
Came 2nd in a local championship once!
Got my picture in a horsey magazine

chinahorse 21-12-2019 03:29 PM

Entire town is in panic. Spoons is shut until further notice. It's almost like there aren't 4 other pubs in the town centre.

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 03:35 PM

Oh no!!!
Our spoons shut until further notice the other day
Then rentokill vans were spotted outside :/

chinahorse 21-12-2019 03:42 PM

Wpuldnt be surprised if ours was the same pest problem. Says health and safety issues.

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 03:52 PM

Hmmm, suspicious

nonperson 21-12-2019 04:46 PM

Oooo eeeeee ooooooh I look just like Buddy Holly... =)

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 04:54 PM

Not heard that song in ages!!!

Eska 21-12-2019 04:58 PM

Afternoon everyone :)

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 04:59 PM

Hey eska
How are you?

I'm watching muppets Christmas carol.
My favourite christmas film!

nonperson 21-12-2019 04:59 PM

Me neither, Beckie. =)

My mozzerella balls burst in the oven. >.>

Hi Eska! How are you?

Eska 21-12-2019 05:03 PM

I'm good! Just heading up to some friends for a Christmas dinner together. Mostly happy because I survived the first week of my new job and seemed to mostly make a good impression? Fingers crossed that continues!

Also in the office gift exchange thing (kind of like a secret santa but we didn't have a nominated person) I got socks with LLAMAS on. I'm wearing them now :D

In the end I managed to find something for 2 for fhe remainder of the 5 budget for my friends too - it's a mug that says "I live for Fridays". I figure that as the other half of the gift is coasters that makes sense!

Are you enjoying the film? I've never seen the Muppets' Christmas Carol.

Eska 21-12-2019 05:03 PM

On no MP! Do they taste good anyway?

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 05:08 PM

Oh no np! That's not what you want!

Well done for surviving eska!
I'm glad the presents have all worked out
Llama socks sound amazing

I am enjoying the film!
You should watch it

nonperson 21-12-2019 05:09 PM

Ooh Christmas dinner. I'm sure you made a great impression. Have you got a break over Christmas?

I like the Muppets Christmas Carol too. I'm watching E.T. now though because after seeing the Sky adverts with E.T. returning to see old Elliott I realised I have not watched it in forever.

And yes, they still tasted amazing. =P

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 05:14 PM

I haven't seen E.T in forever either!
I wasn't the biggest fan of it tbh


nonperson 21-12-2019 05:28 PM

Nah I was never a big fan either, it used to creep me out a bit. Maybe I'll change my mind about it as an adult.

one_step_closer 21-12-2019 05:30 PM

When ET is dying. :crying: :crying: :crying:

Eska 21-12-2019 05:30 PM

Np I'm glad they're good!

I'm not taking any extra days off over Christmas, but I get Christmas Day, Boxing Day and NYD off anyway as well as weekends so compared to my years working retail it's luxurious!

Llama socks are most definitely amazing. They say Falala llama on.

nonperson 21-12-2019 05:34 PM

Oh Lindsay! I forgot about that bit... I will probaby be in tears later then... =(

It's nice to have some time off at least, Eska.

not_so_insig 21-12-2019 05:35 PM

I didn't like ET as a kid. I am unlikely to watch it as an adult because of my mh problems. I know that it will trigger it off so I try and avoid triggers.

nonperson 21-12-2019 05:36 PM

I won't give a running commentary of what's happening then.

not_so_insig 21-12-2019 05:38 PM

I have seen it before so dont worry nonperson. I can cope with reading about it just watching it is a different matter.

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 05:39 PM

Glad you get some nice time off eska!

nonperson 21-12-2019 07:12 PM

There were tears. ='(

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 07:19 PM


nonperson 21-12-2019 07:22 PM

Only at the end when he leaves. *sniffle* =(

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 07:24 PM

Ah bless you!

I've just finished watching shrek.
Don't know what's on now

nonperson 21-12-2019 07:32 PM

Shrek always has to be watched at Christmas.

I also don't know what to watch now. Got Friends on for the moment.

And should find something for dinner because I'm hungry. I'm thinking.... jacket potato.

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 07:33 PM

It does!

Jacket potato sounds good!

I had mac and cheese bites and popcorn chicken. Healthy.... :/

nonperson 21-12-2019 07:37 PM

Just as healthy as my mozzerella balls snack/late lunch. >.>

I'll have tuna mayo and cheese on my jacket potato... also healthy!

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 07:46 PM

We're totally winning at this healthy eating thing :p

Tuna mayo and cheese is the best topping

nonperson 21-12-2019 07:48 PM

*high five* I'm blaming the time of year.

It is the best topping. Baked beans are nice sometimes but too carby.

Cacoethes 21-12-2019 08:00 PM

Yes, it's definitely the time of year!

Beans are good too but tuna mayo wins

chinahorse 22-12-2019 12:56 AM

Yeah salad isnt really appealing when it's cold out.

nonperson 22-12-2019 10:21 AM

Or ever. >.>

Morning everyone.

chinahorse 22-12-2019 10:31 AM

Hmm I like it on a hot summers day when its crisp and cool and refreshing and has a side of hummus and things.


nonperson 22-12-2019 11:05 AM

Yeah, definitely more of a summer thing... with quiche. I only really like lettuce and tomato though, with croutons but I don't think they count as salad, heh.

one_step_closer 22-12-2019 11:06 AM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

I actually bought salad stuff today to have for dinner. Because I've been eating too many biscuits.

Eska 22-12-2019 11:09 AM

Morning everyone

one_step_closer 22-12-2019 11:10 AM

Hi Eska, how is your weekend going?

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 11:21 AM.
