Zurg, that was so amusing to read! What trollish pets you have :P

Cacoethes 23-08-2022 07:52 AM

Hey Jenna!
How are you?

Pi.R^2 23-08-2022 07:54 AM

I'm OK thanks. Need to go and wash up and pack as I'm catching a train in an hour =S
How are you?

Cacoethes 23-08-2022 08:10 AM

Fun times!
Going anywhere nice?

I'm meh.
Feel sick for some reason and my laptop is being stupid but i think I've fixed it!

Pi.R^2 23-08-2022 09:04 AM

Edinburgh Fringe! Just got micromanaged out of the house by K :plain: Wasn’t allowed to go downstairs and pack my rucksack until I’d stood around while they quizzed me on all the things I had to bring in case I’d forgotten anything, which I hadn’t!

Sympathy for your queasiness! Glad you’ve fixed your laptop. If memory serves you have an appointment so good luck :)

Cacoethes 23-08-2022 10:08 AM

Awesome! Hope you have a wonderful time!
I love Edinburgh
Glad you haven't forgotten anything!

Yes i do
Thank you!

Morning all. I slept very well compared to the night before. I have a busy day with yodel, amazon, my cpn and my parents visiting today. Apart from my parents I hope all 3 dont appear at the same time.

I have discovered that the book I appear in twice is for sale on ebay. There are also 20 references to relatives in the book.

Cacoethes 23-08-2022 10:39 AM

Asda wasn't busy at all. Neither was the pharmacy
Clearly 9:30am is the time to be in town!

tamobhuuta 23-08-2022 11:14 AM

Hi guys :)

How come you are in a book insig???

Cacoethes 23-08-2022 11:18 AM

Hey tamo
How are you?

not_so_insig 23-08-2022 12:08 PM

Tamobhuuta for the millennium some people in the village where I grew up decided to publish a book about the history of the village. They included several school pupil class photos and there are 2 which I am pictured in. I am the only one to appear twice in my family.

tamobhuuta 23-08-2022 01:33 PM

That's really cool!

I am ok but feeling a bit down for no reason.

Cacoethes 23-08-2022 02:45 PM

Hope you feel better soon tamo

one_step_closer 23-08-2022 03:54 PM

Hi everyone, had the gym group today which takes up a big chunk of my time and then have to squeeze things in afterwards. Just popping in to say hi and I might have time to come back later.

Cacoethes 23-08-2022 03:55 PM

Well done for going to the gym group lindsay

one_step_closer 23-08-2022 04:25 PM

Thanks, it was actually better than usual. We were doing different things.

How are you getting on?

Cacoethes 23-08-2022 05:41 PM

That's good :)

I'm ok. Just been to pilates

Zurg 23-08-2022 06:48 PM

My goodness, you guys have more spunk than me!!! I really, really detest gyms!!! They are boring, the excercises are repetetive, it's too bloody hot inside them and the majority of people being there Seem to spend more time cat walking than doing anything. And then they charge you!!! And it's not even cheap!!!! And i hate them!!!

So i spent my day being taken to the pet store for some refills. And i accidentally walked out with a million things for bun bun…. Who is presently trying to eat my rug…. Totally unimpressed with her toys. Only interested in destruction, it seems…

nonperson 23-08-2022 07:23 PM

I hope by "accidentally walked out" you mean that you did actually pay for them? =P

I've given up buying toys for Geordi, he's not interested. But then sometimes he'll pick something up randomly for a bit. She might warm to them in time.

Zurg 23-08-2022 08:36 PM

Well, i went in with a list of 3 items and i ended up leaving with a lot more than that. I suspects it's the same mechanisms when you have a snackcident…!!

Cacoethes 23-08-2022 08:49 PM

Oh i can't STAND gyms either zurg!
All my exercise is strictly no gym!
My mum's dogs have a ton of toys.
They just want sticks from the garden...
And when someone walks into the house, the giant schnauzer picks up a trophy shoe and just trots around the house with it for a bit, before dropping it somewhere random.
Animals are weird

nonperson 23-08-2022 08:59 PM

Yep, I had a few snackcidents at the shop just now.

Cacoethes 24-08-2022 07:03 AM

Morning everyone

nonperson 24-08-2022 09:50 AM

Morning all. Hope you have nice days today <3

tamobhuuta 24-08-2022 09:53 AM

Good morning. How are you both?

nonperson 24-08-2022 09:57 AM

Hey tamo. I'm meh. Unmotivated to do any work so I'm hiding in between a load of plant pots heh.

How're you?

Zurg 24-08-2022 10:05 AM

Sneaky strategy, NP. I approve!!!

I have just put a load of laundry on. And in our laundry basement room, a teeny, tiny mouse is running around XD which i suspect a lot of people won't appreciate in the same manner i do…
(But it's cute!!!)

nonperson 24-08-2022 10:17 AM

Mice are very cute =)

Pi.R^2 24-08-2022 10:42 AM

Morning all! Sorry you're not feeling great np :(
Yikes Zurg! Weirdly I love animals and even had a pet mouse once but I have an irrational phobia of mice being where they're not supposed to be =S

tamobhuuta 24-08-2022 10:45 AM

I am undecided about mice. Cute or vermin?

I am ok, I think better than yesterday :)

one_step_closer 24-08-2022 11:32 AM

Hi everyone.

I hope you can feel better than meh, NP. I'm sorry you feel that way.

Kat, you could add the mouse to your Zoo.

How are you Jenna?

I'm glad you're feeling better than yesterday, Tamo. I hope it continues. What will you be doing today?

I've got the walking group at 1pm.

tamobhuuta 24-08-2022 11:56 AM

I'm hoping L will go shoe shopping with me. How are you feeling about your walking group?

nonperson 24-08-2022 12:24 PM

Zurg could maybe feed the mouse to her zoo >=P

Thanks Lindsay.

What sorta shoes are you looking for, tamo?

Zurg 24-08-2022 12:38 PM

NP!!!! o_o

I cannot possibly feed a mouse to anyone!!! They are too tiny and cute!!!
I've had 3 as pets, many moons ago. They were unbelievably adorable albeit a bit stinky….

nonperson 24-08-2022 12:39 PM


I had rats. They were awesome.

Zurg 24-08-2022 12:56 PM

Rats are sooo smart and cute!!! I wanted one as a kid but when i asked my mum she made a shriek of astronomic dimensions and it wasn't a shriek of approval and happiness ;-)

nonperson 24-08-2022 01:23 PM

A lot of people have that reaction.

Yes! My mouse was a smelly little thing and I never knew whether that was common.

I had pet rats in the house for a few years too. Clever little things.

not_so_insig 24-08-2022 02:52 PM

I would like a pet rat but I don't think that they don't get on too well with cats.

nonperson 24-08-2022 03:16 PM

We had cats and rats together. Wasn't a problem. Just keep them separate!

tamobhuuta 24-08-2022 03:19 PM

I found some nice ballet pumps and strappy sandals but I have ordered the pumps because they didn't have my size.

one_step_closer 24-08-2022 04:44 PM

I'm glad you managed to get some shoes you like, Tamo. How long till the delivery of the pumps? That's something to look forward to.

The walking group was good. Last one next week which is sad.

I have no opinion on mice or rats, haven't really seen any IRL I don't think.

tamobhuuta 24-08-2022 05:06 PM

About a week.

Is there another group you can join?

not_so_insig 24-08-2022 05:20 PM

Is the walking group stopping a permanent or temporary thing?

Cacoethes 24-08-2022 05:41 PM

Hey everyone

Zurg 24-08-2022 07:32 PM

Evening Beckie.

Lindsay, you should make a walking group. And then you get to decide on all the rules :D

Yay for new shoes, Tamo!!! The worst thing shopping for, is always shoes!! It's a nightmare!!!

For some odd reason, a grasshopper has decided to join my zoo. I would catch it and put it outside but it's on my ceiling and i cba to get my ladder…

Cacoethes 24-08-2022 08:55 PM

I'm just impressed that you have a ladder!

nonperson 24-08-2022 08:59 PM

A chair usually suffices indoors.

Cacoethes 24-08-2022 09:19 PM

I agree

Cacoethes 25-08-2022 06:29 AM

Morning everyone
We have rain!
Proper rain!
