Meh *shrug*


Cacoethes 04-02-2022 08:04 PM


Been up to much?

nonperson 04-02-2022 08:14 PM

*big hugs for you if wanted*

Just work, as usual!

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 08:17 PM

Thank you :)

Fun times!
Weekend off now?

nonperson 04-02-2022 08:20 PM

Yep, weekend off. I'm not scheduled for any weekends until March some time, I think.

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 08:31 PM

That's good.
Any plans?

nonperson 04-02-2022 08:33 PM

The rota goddess was kind.

Nah, no plans. My friend is busy (her turn to work) and she has her sister over so I probably won't be seeing them. I -might- venture to a real shop to find a new work backpack because after 9 years the zip on mine has finally broken enough to be intolerable. And online is no help because I dunno what size I need!

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 08:51 PM


Ah ok.
A real shop?! Are those even still a thing?!

nonperson 04-02-2022 08:55 PM

They are! Although I can count on one hand the number of real shops I've been to since covid, not counting the supermarket, so some of them are definitely still real!

If I'd have gotten my act together I could have gone last week on Friday when I was off work but I might just have to suck it up and go on a weekend day. *wail*

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 09:10 PM

Any particular shop you are thinking of?

nonperson 04-02-2022 09:16 PM

Well... there's a Millets and Mountain Warehouse and a Sports Direct in one town nearby so I'd probably go there. They have sales on at the moment too. And there's stress-free parking and a Morrisons too.

Or I might just hole up at home and ignore the problem until another time.

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 09:24 PM

That doesn't sound too bad!

You shouldn't do that!

nonperson 04-02-2022 09:31 PM

It'll be busy though and... shops and people. =|

No, I shouldn't leave it, but I could!

The bag situation is not desperate yet, in my opinion, it possibly is in others' opinions. I'll probably go as far as using a carrier bag instead before I actually get a new backpack. XD

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 09:38 PM

I know it sucks!
But it will be a good thing to get over and done with!


nonperson 04-02-2022 09:41 PM

Oh I definitely should get it over and done with.

It's already held together with safety pins. Working zips and useable pockets would be nice I suppose.

Are you watching anything on the ipad tonight?

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 09:45 PM

It'll be so worth it!

I'm not sure.
I'm listening to music at the moment but I was trying to think of what i could watch.

nonperson 04-02-2022 09:55 PM

I'm listening to Radio X's Indie Night. Some good tunes. I'm not sure if it's what I'm in the mood for though.

More Marvel? Something new? Something old but comforting? Star Wars?

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 10:04 PM

So much choice!
I'll have a browse

nonperson 04-02-2022 10:12 PM

I often give up trying to choose something to watch because there is too much choice! And long for the days of only 5 channels to choose from, haha!

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 10:22 PM

I know! It's so hard now!

nonperson 04-02-2022 10:29 PM

This modern streaming world is not made for those who find it hard to make decisions or don't know what they're in the mood to watch.

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 10:48 PM

It really isn't!

I might just watch harry potter again.
Ultimate comfort film!

nonperson 04-02-2022 10:53 PM


Good choice. I approve. =P

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 10:55 PM

Thought you might :p

nonperson 04-02-2022 11:09 PM


You have to include The Fantastic Beasts films too.

Which reminds me that as I binged all the HP ones last weekend I should continue with Fantastic Beasts too this weekend.

Might not have time to do real world shopping after all. Shame. >.>

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 11:14 PM

Oh I do!

Yes you definitely should!

Haha! Yes, such a shame :p

nonperson 04-02-2022 11:24 PM

Well that's my weekend planned then. Screw real life necessities. I -need- to watch films instead.

Gotta get priorities right, right? =D

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 11:24 PM

I feel like this is partially my fault :p

nonperson 04-02-2022 11:24 PM

Also, when is the third Fantastic Beasts film out?!

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 11:30 PM

8th April! Not too long to go!

nonperson 04-02-2022 11:57 PM

Oooooh! Who did they recast as Grindelwald?

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 11:59 PM

Mads Mikkelsen
I'm going to miss Johnny depp

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 09:18 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 10:59 AM

Good morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 11:06 AM

Hoping to get some washing done today. And put my watch on charge. But they are short staffed.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 11:12 AM

I am ok but I had nightmares :( I was running away from monsters and then I was on an ED unit. I was so scared it was hard to get back to sleep.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 11:21 AM

That sounds awful
Hope you're feeling ok now

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 11:43 AM

Yes thank you. Have you managed to get a member of staff yet?

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 11:49 AM

I've just had 3 of them hassling me about various things.
I think someone else has come in so they aren't short staffed anymore

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 11:52 AM

That's good. Though I know it sucks being harassed.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 12:00 PM

They've taken my washing!
But can't find the charger for my watch.
I ALWAYS end up losing chargers in here.
Even though they are clearly labelled!
I've lost a plug as well. Which i already had to buy while here because they lost my phone charger.

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 12:41 PM

How difficult is it to not lose chargers!

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 12:55 PM

I know!
They are kept in a locked room, and each of us have our own labelled box to keep our chargers in!!!

one_step_closer 05-02-2022 01:14 PM

Do people borrow your charger? The staff and patients always end up borrowing mine but luckily it's found it's way back to me. We're allowed to keep our chargers on my ward.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 01:40 PM

They probably do. I wouldn't mind if they actually asked.
Really?! That's unusal!
I have my powerbank because the lead is really short. But my watch i need to charge in the room and the powerbank itself needs charging in the room.

not_so_insig 05-02-2022 02:58 PM

In my local psych unit you are allowed to charge stuff in your room. They only provide one socket however. In the previous unit there was multiple sockets.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 03:15 PM

There are a couple of sockets in my room.

one_step_closer 05-02-2022 04:37 PM

My ward has two sockets per bed but one is for the bed. It can be taken out to charge something if you don't need to move the bed up or something at that time.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 04:43 PM

You have moving beds?!
Ours are fixed to the floor!

one_step_closer 05-02-2022 06:19 PM

They're like medical beds with wheels and buttons to raise or lower the bed etc.
