You'd fast forward through the entire program then, Dawn. Music is playing in the background with some clips but they're mostly talking about the music of 1999 and Y2K.

Started with The Offspring though so that was good. =)

It's not a proper TOTP show, but sometimes they show really old repeats on some random channels!

"She's in to superstition, black cats and voodoo dolls..." =P

Cacoethes 28-05-2022 08:26 PM

Loved that song! A
For the longest time I thought that instead of voodoo doll they says 'blue dogs'

nonperson 28-05-2022 08:27 PM

Black cats and blue dogs.... XD

Kinda makes sense.

Cacoethes 28-05-2022 08:31 PM

That was my reasoning!!!
I was also rather young when I heard it first
When did it come out?

Cacoethes 28-05-2022 08:32 PM

Googled. I was 9 lol

nonperson 28-05-2022 08:38 PM

1999. =P

I was 15.

Cacoethes 28-05-2022 08:39 PM

In that case, I was 8!

not_so_insig 28-05-2022 08:56 PM

I can beat you as I was 18!

nonperson 28-05-2022 09:09 PM

Didn't know it was an age competition.

not_so_insig 28-05-2022 11:16 PM

Sorry I didn't mean it to be.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 06:57 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 29-05-2022 08:28 AM

Morning Beckie.

How are you?

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 08:31 AM


I'm ok thanks!

Zurg 29-05-2022 08:37 AM

I'm knackered!!! I travelled by train yesterday to visit my friend and her husband. And pet their dog :D maybe mostly to pet their dog….!!!!

I had a very vivid Dream early this morning that resulted in me throwing myself out of bed. I landed on the floor and took the Fall with my left elbow. I do not recommend!!!
Apparently this is now a thing that happens every now and then…. Being asleep and then somehow ending up on the floor.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 08:48 AM

Oooh doggo!!
Did you have a good time?

Oh dear! That sounds painful!
I always fall out of the beds in hospital because I'm not used to single beds!

Zurg 29-05-2022 09:26 AM

I did, yes :-)
Dogs always make everything a bit better!!!

In hindsight i should perhaps not have bought taller furniture legs for my bed… Though being able to store things underneath it is quite handy….
And in hospital, the beds are always Way too small!!!

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 09:32 AM

Yes they do!

Ah yeah!
Storing things under the bed is always good though!
I have an ottoman bed so everything gets shoved under there lol!
Hospital beds are very small!

tamobhuuta 29-05-2022 11:38 AM

Hi everyone x

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 11:44 AM

Hey tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 29-05-2022 01:33 PM

I'm ok, having lunch :) what are you up to?

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 01:40 PM

Nice :)

I'm just watching t.v.
Bored out of my mind!!!

one_step_closer 29-05-2022 01:49 PM

Afternoon everyone.

That sounds very sore Kat. I hope it wasn't a scary dream at least.

What was for lunch Tamo?

Being bored is annoying, is there anything good on TV Beckie? Do you have any tasks to do like yesterday? Any Amazon deliveries today? :laugh:

I got up at nearly 12. I'm trying not to be too hard on myself because I've been up at 9am all week and 9.30am yesterday. I'm just so worried I won't be able to keep getting up at 9am once the phone calls stop.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 02:03 PM

Nothing to do today!
I'm trying to think of things to sort out but there's nothing left! Everything has been sorted out!!!
I've been for a walk but that made me dizzy so wasn't that fun!
As a matter of fact I did have an amazon delivery today XD
It wasn't meant to come until Thursday! Just a little pin thing to get the sim cards out of phones.

It's Sunday Lindsay! Sundays are a lie in day.
You've been doing really well!
Focus on the good stuff, not what may or may not happen in the future!

one_step_closer 29-05-2022 02:07 PM

You're totally on top of things, that's good if it didn't lead to boredom. When's your delivery coming? I have cat food coming (not so exciting) being delivered by Evri from any time now to 3.30pm. I'm wondering if Hermes changed anything on top of the name change.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 02:27 PM

My delivery came a few hours ago!
Which is very early for this area! Usually it's much later. They must not have much to deliver today!

I find evri to be pretty much exactly the same as Hermes!
Maybe worse. Because after 8 years of living here I've never had a delivery be delayed for 2 days until evri took over!
The drivers in the area are generally pretty good

one_step_closer 29-05-2022 04:46 PM

You'd probably expect there not to be so many deliveries on a Sunday.

One time I was in hospital and someone sent me a book via Amazon but it didn't arrive although it said it had. They somehow then sent out 2 of the same book which arrived along with the original book and the packaging looked like it had be stamped on and dragged through mud.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 04:49 PM

Yes probably!

That's not very good!
I haven't had any issues with them so far!

one_step_closer 29-05-2022 04:51 PM

That's good. Royal Mail also delivered a t-shirt to someone else but that someone else didn't bring it to my house even though it had my address on it. I had to ask for another one to be sent. Delivery companies are mostly good though.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 04:56 PM

I've definitely had more good experiences than bad!
Things are bound to go wrong once in a while. No one is perfect!

one_step_closer 29-05-2022 05:00 PM

I've sometimes thought I could be a postie but I'm not good at remembering where streets are and I wouldn't want to be walking about in horrible weather!

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 05:06 PM

I'd be terrible at it!
I've lived here for 8 years and I still don't know what the numbers around me are! But tbf the numbers really dont make sense on my road!

chinahorse 29-05-2022 07:09 PM

Hey guys. It's been a long time.

not_so_insig 29-05-2022 07:14 PM

Hello Lillie! Welcome back.

chinahorse 29-05-2022 07:18 PM

Hey, hope your evening is going OK?

I hate Sunday evenings. Feels like I just sit and wait for work tomorrow.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 07:18 PM

How are you?

Ninja post
I'm not a fan of Sunday evening's either

chinahorse 29-05-2022 07:22 PM

Hey love. How's things?

Even the cat has given up on me and has gone to sit in my bedroom.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 07:24 PM

Pretty good thanks!
Missed you!

Aw bless him. How is the little cutie?

chinahorse 29-05-2022 07:28 PM

Aw bless ya, hard to imagine anyone could miss little old me! Saw a patient with purple hair the other day and made me think of you.

He's good. Noisy. Demanding little cat.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 07:32 PM

You were very much missed!
Awww! I need to get it dyed again soon!

Haha! Aren't they all!

chinahorse 29-05-2022 07:45 PM

Got an appointment for my hair to be coloured again soon. Going to a friend's wedding start of next month and it's not looking it's best currently!

Pets in general are very demanding in a good way.

nonperson 29-05-2022 07:52 PM

Lilliieeeeeeeeeeeeee =D

That's a lot of eeeeee's, sorry.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 07:55 PM

What colour?

That is true!

Hey np!

We're all excited to have you back Lillie!

chinahorse 29-05-2022 08:23 PM

Hahaha hi np! :-)

Just getting my roots highlighted and lowlights blonde to blend into the lengths more. Its doesn't look like more ghan normal blonde winter growth but I ain't happy.

Cacoethes 29-05-2022 08:32 PM

That sounds nice!
You'll have to post pics!

Cacoethes 30-05-2022 07:47 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 30-05-2022 09:28 AM

Morning Beckie how are you?

Cacoethes 30-05-2022 09:32 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Not that thrilled about going to work today though
Voices aren't great!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 30-05-2022 10:53 AM

one_step_closer 30-05-2022 11:42 AM
