I wouldn't do it personally!
I hate queueing! These people will stand there for literal days! And they aren't allowed chairs or sleeping bags or anything. I read somewhere that they can't leave the queue either? But idk if that's true. It doesn't sound true.

tamobhuuta 15-09-2022 11:46 AM

I heard that you can get an arm band so you can duck out to go to the loo or whatever and reclaim your position.

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 11:51 AM

Yeah I've just read that too. You can temporarily leave the queue.
Sounds awful tbh!

tamobhuuta 15-09-2022 12:05 PM


Cacoethes 15-09-2022 12:27 PM

Each to their own i guess!
I've queued for quite a while for concerts and that's not everyone's cup of tea!

tamobhuuta 15-09-2022 12:50 PM

I once queued for a roller-coaster. I can't remember how long for but it wasn't worth it.

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 12:51 PM

That's something i wouldn't do. Those queues are insane! And not worth it for me

tamobhuuta 15-09-2022 01:19 PM

It was a school thing. You go thinking you'll have a great time with your mates then spend all day queuing.

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 01:43 PM

I went to thorpe park with school in year 7.
I did have a good time. I don't remember having to queue for ages at all. Don't know why! Maybe we went at a particularly quiet time?

tamobhuuta 15-09-2022 03:23 PM

I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 04:13 PM


I've just started watching a series on prime called upload. It's really good!

one_step_closer 15-09-2022 04:19 PM

Hi everyone.

Queues are annoying.

What's Upload about, Beckie?

How are you doing, Tamo?

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 04:26 PM

It's about when people die, they can pay to have their consciousness uploaded into like an afterlife server thing.

Have you been up to much today lindsay?

Zurg 15-09-2022 04:37 PM

Omg!!! How much does it cost, Beckie??? I want to hang around on the internet and annoy people forever!!!!

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 04:44 PM

I don't know, but i think it costs a great deal!
I certainly wouldn't be able to afford it!

The Worst Witch 15-09-2022 04:55 PM

That freaks me out. When I’m dead, I want to be dead, not sticking around forever! Same reason the afterlife freaks me the **** out

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 04:58 PM

I don't think i believe in the afterlife.
But i wouldn't want to hang around forever either!

The Worst Witch 15-09-2022 05:07 PM

I don’t really believe in it either

Zurg 15-09-2022 05:13 PM

But a lot of rich people are bastards!! It's not fair that eternal virtual life is only affordable to them!!!! Grrrr!!! >:(

tamobhuuta 15-09-2022 05:18 PM

I'm ok thanks osc. I'm going to try starting a new book. Actually, it's not new, I got partway through years ago then stopped. I'm going to find out why I stopped. If I can't focus I'm going to watch TV or stuff on Facebook.

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 05:23 PM

Yes it is very unfair!
That's the world we live in unfortunately!

Ahhh it's later than i thought!
Gonna have to eat dinner super fast!

Cacoethes 16-09-2022 05:40 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 16-09-2022 10:16 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 16-09-2022 10:22 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Randomly got up at 4:30am so it feels like it should be much later than 10:30!!!
I'm on the bus to an LGBTQ+ coffee morning at geek retreat.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 16-09-2022 10:59 AM

That sounds fun.

I've got a stomach ache from worrying about seeing my CPN this afternoon.

Cacoethes 16-09-2022 11:03 AM

I hope so!

I hope it goes ok and your cpn is helpful

tamobhuuta 16-09-2022 11:32 AM

Thanks. I should probably not go in pyjamas...

one_step_closer 16-09-2022 01:39 PM

Afternoon everyone.

I hope your appointment goes well (in proper clothes), Tamo. I'm thinking of you. Let us know how you get on if that's ok.

4.30am is a horrible hour to be awake. Unless you slept really well? How was the coffee morning, Beckie?

Cacoethes 16-09-2022 02:58 PM

I did not really sleep that well!
So it was a bit annoying
Thank god i have wifi though because otherwise i would have had to watch teleshopping for hours!!!

The coffee morning was good thanks!

How are you lindsay?

one_step_closer 16-09-2022 05:00 PM

That is annoying, I hope you sleep better tonight. My brother used to choose to watch teleshopping. I'm glad you enjoyed the coffee morning. Are there other things on at geek retreat that you might go to?

I went for my prescription and then went to Tesco. Somehow had no housework on my to do list for today. I'm waiting on a delivery of loppers so I can cut back the bushes in my garden. Can't really be bothered though and I'll have to make some time for it which will mess with my to do list.

What are you up to now?

tamobhuuta 16-09-2022 05:12 PM

I saw my CPN. News in Serious.
Well done on activities osc.
Glad you enjoyed the coffee morning Cacoethes.

one_step_closer 16-09-2022 05:14 PM

What are you doing this evening, Tamo?

Cacoethes 16-09-2022 05:23 PM

Yeah there are quite a few things on at Geek Retreat! I want to get into D&D.

Well done on doing your things lindsay!

tamobhuuta 16-09-2022 06:41 PM

Distracting with TV and family

Cacoethes 17-09-2022 08:32 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 17-09-2022 10:23 AM

Good morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 17-09-2022 10:25 AM

I'm ok thanks.
Just read that the wait in the queue to see the queen is at least 25 hours!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 17-09-2022 10:29 AM

The official page says 16 hrs, probably optimistic!

I've got to sort myself out before the Crisis Team come this afternoon.
What are you up to?

Cacoethes 17-09-2022 10:32 AM

That was the update from about 1am so 16 hours might now be the current time.

Hope it goes ok..

Not a lot. Just watching a series. Waiting for an amazon delivery. Which is coming this morning, very unusual for this area.

tamobhuuta 17-09-2022 10:50 AM

2 fun things. What's the series? What's the parcel?

Cacoethes 17-09-2022 10:57 AM

I'm watching The Imperfects on netflix. It's quite good.
The parcel has a new 1 litre water bottle and a white vest top (need a white one to go under my dobok when i get it)
So nothing massively exciting.

one_step_closer 17-09-2022 02:49 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Did you get your parcel, Beckie? Still sounds like a sort of fun one.

I got some loppers to cut back my bushes yesterday and the food/garden bin has been emptied so I have no excuse not to get on with it. Is there a silence for the Queen tomorrow and/or Monday? I don't want to be out in the garden with people thinking I'm disrespectful.

I hope you're doing ok, Tamo.

tamobhuuta 17-09-2022 02:50 PM

It's good it's for something you enjoy. What's the Imperfects about? Last night I watched Making the Cut and some of the clothes they came up with were really cool but others... sucked.

Cacoethes 17-09-2022 03:44 PM

Yep got my parcel!

According to google, there will be a minute silence tomorrow at 8pn and a 2 minute silence at 11:55am on Monday.

The imperfects is about 3 people who were given experimental treatments and then got superhuman side effects, they had to track down the dr that did the experiment to get him to cure them. Of course, it wasn't that simple!
There were only 10 episodes. Apparently it only came out a couple of weeks ago so they don't even know if it will be renewed for season 2.

I've never seen making the cut. Is that people making clothes from scratch or something?

tamobhuuta 17-09-2022 03:56 PM

Yeah. Most of then are already designers but very small and want to go big. They come from all over the world and the competition is in LA.

Cacoethes 17-09-2022 04:59 PM

Ah ok!
There are lots of variations of that kind of show at the moment. Like the cooking shows and hair styling and make up and clothes tv show things!

tamobhuuta 17-09-2022 05:40 PM

Yeah there are. I like Great British Bake Off too.

Cacoethes 17-09-2022 05:48 PM

I'm not a fan.
I do like the funny GBBO memes though!
Always a lot of them when the show is on

tamobhuuta 18-09-2022 08:15 AM

Good morning peoples.

Cacoethes 18-09-2022 08:23 AM

Morning tamo

How are you?
