Not really.
I overheard some people being invited to a psychology group but no one asked me so idk!
I did spot the OT assistant who I know from several wards who usually talks to me. But so far all she's done is smile while walking past. Usually she's dead set on trying to get me to go to groups!

one_step_closer 27-01-2022 05:48 PM

Welcome to the evening. How are you all?

Cacoethes 27-01-2022 06:10 PM

I'm ok thanks. May be discharged on Monday! Or at least they may start the CTO paperwork on Monday. This doctor can't do it apparently :eyeroll:
So got to wait for consultant. Stupid weekends. They should work 7 days a week for my convenience :tongue2:

How are you lindsay?

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 01:49 AM

Morning everyone :tongue2:

tamobhuuta 28-01-2022 10:46 AM

Proper morning now! How are you?

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 11:25 AM


I have some stuff going on
Just been made to write on the whiteboard lol
No idea why the nurse came all the way to my room and asked me to do it!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 28-01-2022 11:28 AM

What did you write? I am ok, trying hard not to be anxious, so having a cup of tea with my parents and sister.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 11:41 AM

Just the nurses names and the patients they are allocated to today.
And I also wrote 'have a nice day' with a smiley face :)

Tea is a good plan! I might go and get a coffee!

tamobhuuta 28-01-2022 11:51 AM

That's cool. Are there any activities available today?

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 12:02 PM

They had pamper group this morning. Which i really hate so avoided that one!
Don't know about any other groups!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 12:22 PM

Yo Hazel!
How are you?

shadow-light 28-01-2022 12:29 PM

not too bad though I appear to have managed to catch covid despite almost never leaving the house nor seeing people :ermm: own faut so whatever

how are you?

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 12:33 PM

Yes I saw! Poor you!

Mood wise I'm great! Other stuff going down though!
I've decided to watch the rocky horror picture show

shadow-light 28-01-2022 12:37 PM

ah, finally a film/tv thing we do not agree on :laugh: no idea why but i'm not a fan of rocky horror

nonperson 28-01-2022 12:39 PM

I love Rocky Horror! Haven't watched it in forever. Did you hear Meatloaf died? =(

Hot patootie. =P

tamobhuuta 28-01-2022 12:43 PM

Hi shadow, Hi np :)

shadow-light 28-01-2022 12:43 PM

ye, of covid apparently. The radio must have played every single song he was even slightly connected to that day

nonperson 28-01-2022 12:49 PM

Hey Tamo. =)

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 12:53 PM

Fair enough Hazel!

I haven't watched it in ages either np!

yeah very sad about meatloaf. What a ledge

nonperson 28-01-2022 12:59 PM

I did not just play the Time Warp scene on youtube and dance along.

shadow-light 28-01-2022 01:06 PM

everyone always goes on about what a great film it is, but I don't now, I think I lost focus like 5 mins in as I was just confused the whole time when I tried to watch it

maybe I should give it another go at some point

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 01:10 PM

Yes np!!!
I'm totally going to add it to my playlist lol

It's not for everyone Hazel! If you lost focus early on then it probably wouldn't make much sense though!

tamobhuuta 28-01-2022 02:02 PM

I've never watched it but love dancing to the song!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 02:11 PM

It is a very good song!

nonperson 28-01-2022 02:13 PM

I don't think it's really meant to make a lot of sense!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 02:19 PM

Well yeah. Not really!
Such a great movie though!
I will now have time warp stuck in my head for the rest of the day! Definitely worse things to be stuck with!

nonperson 28-01-2022 02:53 PM

Agreed. And Hot Patootie, those are the two songs that always get stuck in my head. Time Warp is a good driving song too. =P

I was walking down the street, just a'having a think, when a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 02:57 PM

Yes that one too! And sweet transvestite!

I'm watching snowpiercer the movie now.
I didn't know it was a movie until I watched the series!

nonperson 28-01-2022 03:02 PM

Oooh. I bet that's on something I can watch as well.

I'm in the middle of a work zoom thing. Everyone's taken a 10 minute break and I'm pretty sure I'm the only who has spent that time doing the time warp.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 03:04 PM

Amazon prime!

Haha!! Time well spent!

nonperson 28-01-2022 03:13 PM

Awesome, might check out the film then.

Luckily I'm not actually AT work otherwise it would be rather embarrassing.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 03:47 PM

It's good so far!
And different enough to the series that I don't know what's going to happen!

Haha! Yeah
Me and a couple of staff were dancing to the wizards of waverly place theme song earlier!

one_step_closer 28-01-2022 03:54 PM

Have I entered a dance party or something?! I don't do dancing.

I signed up for an exercise program which might actually involve dancing though. Need to find some time to squeeze it in when my blinds are closed so no one sees me but that feels like too late to be exercising.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 04:07 PM

Haha! Well you should lindsay!
Stick the time warp on!

That sounds cool!

one_step_closer 28-01-2022 04:14 PM

Most of the workouts last for an hour I think. Will maybe have to build up to that.

Are you still watching the snowpiercer film?

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 04:19 PM

I used to do a lot of dance workouts.
They're great fun!

Yep! Only about 20 mins left
It's not actually like the series at all!

one_step_closer 28-01-2022 04:25 PM

It's kind of weird to have a series and a film is it not?

I'm glad it's not the same as the series so you aren't predicting what is going to happen.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 04:44 PM

Little bit! The film came out years before the series though. The last season of it only came out this month. The film is 2013 I think.

It was actually pretty much completely different!

nonperson 28-01-2022 05:32 PM

There are a few things I can think of that were films first before they were series - Buffy and Stargate. Probably loads more though.

I'm watching Harry Potter and doing Pottermore quizzes.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 05:43 PM

Yes I'm sure there were quite a few but couldn't think of any examples!

Great way to spend the evening! (Is ir evening or afternoon? Feels too late to be afternoon and too early to be evening, probably because it's dark!)

I'm watching iron man now!

nonperson 28-01-2022 05:48 PM

I think after 5 is considered evening? I'm not sure!

Iron Man is a good choice. =)

I'm basically swotting up for an online HP quiz me and my sister are doing tonight.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 05:52 PM

Sounds about right!
So nearly evening!

Oooh fun!

one_step_closer 28-01-2022 06:06 PM

That's what I thought about the evening. Happy Evening everyone!

I'm also Harry Pottering although not right now, I'm working through the books again because they're easy to read before bed.

Have you done an online HP quiz before NP? I hope you win!

I've never watched Iron Man. I don't watch films in general really. I take it you've watched it before Beckie?

nonperson 28-01-2022 06:26 PM

Happy Evening, Lindsay!

The HP books are good. So much more detail than the films, and yes, definitely easy reading, ideal for before bed.

We've done a few Harry Potter quizzes before. Some have been really good and challenging and others have been awful where the host clearly doesn't know anything about HP. We never win but we don't do badly. =P

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 06:26 PM

Harry potter 4 lyf!!!

I have seen it before but not for quite a while!

nonperson 28-01-2022 06:27 PM

New tattoo idea? XD

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 06:34 PM

Don't tempt me XD

nonperson 28-01-2022 06:35 PM

Please don't. =|

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 06:38 PM

Ahahahhahaa!!! XD
