Oh no!

People keep thinking I'm a big fan of Harry Potter but I only actually like the books. I keep getting Harry Potter gifts.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 06:52 PM

I think if you say you like Harry potter everyone will automatically think you're a potterhead!

nonperson 28-01-2022 07:18 PM

That's very true.

Tbh there aren't many people that say they kinda like it but aren't that bothered. Or maybe those people are just too scared to speak up, lol

HP gifts are good though!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 07:25 PM

That's true!

Yes they are!
I'm looking for a random hp gift to get bestie!

nonperson 28-01-2022 10:31 PM

Scarf. Chocolate frog. House penant. Tie. Socks. Bertie Botts.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 10:47 PM

Pretty sure he's got all those!

nonperson 28-01-2022 11:03 PM

Uhm, prefect badge? Butterbeer? Pumpkin juice? 3D puzzle?

nonperson 28-01-2022 11:04 PM

You do need to have multiple chocolate frogs to collect the cards though.

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 11:12 PM

I shall have a look!

Looks like the wait is going to be a while.
No one has been called in in about an hour!
So I have plenty of time to look for hp stuff!
A prefect badge is a cool idea!

nonperson 28-01-2022 11:25 PM

Ugh that sucks. Maybe there will be another rush of people going in soon. How long have you been waiting already?

I'm looking on the studio tour online shop at the moment. Might treat myself.

Or maybe a head boy pin? =P

The quiz was good! I think we did quite well. There were some really tricky questions though and we don't find out until tomorrow how well we did!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 11:27 PM

Maybe about 2 hours now?

Haha! It is always tempting!

Oooh yes he would LOVE a head boy pin!

Good! Always nice to be challenged!

nonperson 28-01-2022 11:36 PM

Fingers crossed you get seen soon.

I'm determined to buy the vintage Hufflepuff scarf the next time I go to the studio tour (hopefully halloween this year) because I've wanted one for ages and it looks more genuine than the actual Newt Scamander scarf. But I'm really craving a chocolate frog.

It is good to be challenged. I'm trying so hard not to google the answers though because I'm not very patient! Things like... which words have been entered into the official dictionary and what other creature can expecto patronum be used for and what film is this song from and which book has the least number of words and if you were scoring each house name in scrabble which one would have the highest score! Annoying!

Cacoethes 28-01-2022 11:46 PM

Just had a latte from the machine.
Wasn't actually that bad! Lol
But G, one of the support workers would absolutely freak out if she knew I'd had coffee this late XD

ooooh do it!
Chocolate frogs are very good!

Those are pretty tough questions!

nonperson 29-01-2022 12:01 AM

Well you might need to be awake for a few hours yet so I don't think it's unreasonable to be having coffee.

Really tough questions, but at least it wasn't questions about minor characters and tiny tiny details. Can never remember those sorts of things.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:05 AM

Oh I'll be awake anyway!

Yeah that's true
I need to read the books again!

nonperson 29-01-2022 12:08 AM

It's amazing how many bits I've forgotten from the books because I've probably seen the films more now.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:12 AM

Me too!
I haven't read the books in many years!
Mum's reading jasmine the books now. Jasmine isn't much of a reader but she is enjoying the story! And is desperate to go to the studios!

nonperson 29-01-2022 12:31 AM

That must be really exciting to share that interest with her. =)

I always remember my mum reading books to me and my sister, like Charlotte's Web. It was nice. And the same at primary school when the teacher used to read to the class. That's when I got hooked on the Hobbit. I can't wait for my friend's kids to be old enough to read the HP books but they're a fair few years off though...

I'm really headachey and need to be up on time tomorrow so am gonna get to bed. Hope you're not at the hospital too long tonight. <3

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:42 AM

It is!

Aww that's so nice!
How old are your friends kids?

Hope you feel better tomorrow!
Good night! <3

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 04:50 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 29-01-2022 09:56 AM


They're 2 and a half and very nearly 5 years old. Few years to go maybe.

Came 13th place on the HP quiz. =)

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 11:10 AM

Ah yes. Few years to go!

Out of how many people?

tamobhuuta 29-01-2022 11:19 AM

Morning :)

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 11:28 AM

Hey tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 29-01-2022 12:21 PM

I'm ok thanks, how about you?

one_step_closer 29-01-2022 12:25 PM

Morning everyone, I hope your days go ok.

Is it just Scotland that has really high winds from last night carrying on today?

tamobhuuta 29-01-2022 12:28 PM

Hi osc, how are you?

It's breezy here, not really windy.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:33 PM

I'm not great!
I apparently have covid again (though I'm pretty sure I don't) so I'm confined to my room!
Which is annoying because I want coffee. I have asked like 3 people so far.
I also need to do laundry which I apparently can do but I don't know when.
Idk with these people!

Morning lindsay!
There was no wind when I was out last night/this morning

one_step_closer 29-01-2022 12:39 PM

The wind blew a bin onto the fence that I line them up at and broke it. Someones cans are blowing all over my garden and my neighbours garden and I beat they'll blame it on me but I don't drink from cans.

Sorry you've got covid again Beckie. How long do you need to say in your room? I hope you don't get horrible symptoms and people step up to get what you need e.g coffee etc.

I don't know how I am really. Low. Hopeless.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:42 PM

Oh no!
Hate it when bin disasters happen!

Thank you!
I'm not actually sure how long I need to stay in here! Until I get a negative test I suppose.
So far I have felt totally fine! Still better than ever!
I've asked 3 people for coffee so far and the 4th one has just gone to get me one. I feel like such a bother!
I have to have my vitals done 4 times a day :eyeroll:

I'm sorry to hear that lindsay
Anything I can do?

one_step_closer 29-01-2022 12:47 PM

You're not a bother you're obeying the rules and the staff need to be looking after you just as much as the other patients. Maybe you can have a coffee ever time they do your vitals to make it two trips squashed into one!

I don't think anyone can do anything but thanks for asking.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:52 PM

That's a good idea!
I have just got a coffee :)

Ok. If there's anything then let me know!

Just dropping in with some Northern solidarity! It's still windy here and wreaking havoc. I just had to have a little reassuring pep talk with one of my bins who had fallen over and was feeling very sorry for himself.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 01:53 PM

Awww bless!

not_so_insig 29-01-2022 02:41 PM

It's really windy here. Fortunately apart from a few channels that I dont watch it isn't effecting my dish too badly so I can watch TV. Not that there's anything good on.

Does everyone know that bbc 3 returns as a regular channel on Tuesday instead of being an online only channel?

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 02:49 PM

Yeah I heard about that Dawn.
They had some good stuff on bbc3

not_so_insig 29-01-2022 02:57 PM

Just in case people need to retune their freeview boxes i thought that I would mention it. I didnt know until I woke up and put bbc 1 Wales sd on my freesat box and wondered why I had bbc Scotland. So it's moved to a different channel number which I cant remember atm.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 02:58 PM

My tv has been warning me of the retuning date for ages.
I'll probably have to do it when i get back

tamobhuuta 29-01-2022 03:14 PM

Sorry you've got covid Cacoethes :(

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 03:17 PM

I've needed my powerbank for 2 hours. They haven't done any checks in that time so haven't been able to ask.

one_step_closer 29-01-2022 04:42 PM

You're too cute Jenna! Two of my bins have slightly fallen and are lying on a broken fence bit but they're in a position where nothing is coming out of them so I'm not picking them up until the wind is gone for sure.

The bad weather affects all of my Freeview channels I think, but I have an indoor aerial which probably isn't up to the job. I usually watch things on catch up players anyway.

That's annoying Beckie. You'll need to ask them when they do come how you're supposed to let them know what you need.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 04:47 PM

They said to press the call button but I hate doing that! Because it's so loud and they'll just come running down here thinking something is wrong!
I could call the ward phone. But I don't like to bother them!

Out of 82 people and it was joint 13th place so worked out as actually the 6th highest score.

How unlucky that you have covid again!

Wind report for here is breezy but not too bad.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 05:25 PM

That's amazing! Well done!

I know!
I think the test was wrong but not much I can do about it!

nonperson 29-01-2022 05:34 PM

When do you get retested? At least the isolation time has been reduced to 5 days now.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 05:50 PM

I don't know!
Neither do the staff
Yes that's true!

The Internet is being ****.
It keeps interrupting my movies!
Just finished the iron man trilogy, started on batman. But why oh why does amazon only have 2 of the dark knight triology?!

one_step_closer 29-01-2022 06:18 PM

Hospital wifi sucks.

Well done NP!

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 06:24 PM

It does!
It's actually been ok for a while *touch wood*

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 06:24 PM

Spoke too soon *facepalm*

nonperson 29-01-2022 08:34 PM

Maybe a lot of people were all using it at once?
