I'd first like an explanation of how you can 'accidentally' steal a bag for life. (Just getting you prepared for your interrogation.)

What did you just say in Spanish? Are you enjoying learning it?

nonperson 23-10-2022 02:53 PM

Hey all.

I have also washed my hair and am letting it dry. And working myself up to changing my bedding.

No one's messaged me so I guess they're busy seeing other people, or each other, without me. I would have liked to see one of them - it's one of the students from last year but equally it'd just be talking about her relationship dramas and my friend's general dramas so I guess I'm not missing much.

Yo tambien estoy cansada.

maii 23-10-2022 03:36 PM

Seems like its going to be a rough day - was a rough night for me. Good to see you all seem upbeat.

Feel sick; honestly.

nonperson 23-10-2022 03:45 PM

So upbeat...

Sorry you feel sick. Take it easy today if you can, maii.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 03:52 PM

Well, I'm so used to taking my own bags that i automatically hit 'i brought my own bag' on the screen. Thought damn, ok, well there's an option at the end to select number of bags so I'll just do that, but again, went on autopilot and pressed 'no bags'.
Think I'll have to go on the run!

I said 'i am very tired'
I'm not actually tired but 'yo esta muy cansada' was literally the first thing that popped into my head when i woke up!
It is fun to learn!
'Yo necesito ayuda!' (I need help)
Always useful XD

That sucks np :(
And a dick move from your friends

Sorry to hear that maii
Hope you feel better soon!

I'm like 99% sure i brought a banana in from the kitchen to have as a snack but i can't find the ****er anywhere!!!

nonperson 23-10-2022 03:54 PM

Has anyone seen this 15 minutes of fame thing from the BBC?


You can enter to go on different shows! I'm really tempted to enter the Doctor Who one to be an alien =S

nonperson 23-10-2022 03:56 PM

I might be wrong about my friends but... I strongly reckon that's what's happened.

Did you eat the banana already?

I spent ages searching the house earlier for a hoodie I wanted to put in the wash and couldn't find it anywhere... but turns out I'd already put it in the washing basket.

not_so_insig 23-10-2022 04:11 PM

I am bored so spent a **** ton in amazon. They're all coming tomorrow but I have the boiler people coming to do their annual check so probably will come at the same time. Unfortunately it's an all afternoon appointment so I can't leave the flat tomorrow even if amazon were coming.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 04:13 PM

Oh my god this is so freaky because LITERALLY 10 minutes ago I decided i was going to be a famous actress and you just posted that link!!! It's fate!
Definitely entering!

I'm pretty sure i didn't eat it because i couldn't find the skin either! I found it, it was mostly under the sofa???
I don't remember dropping it!

Haha! I've definitely done that more times than i care to admit!

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 04:16 PM

Ok ive applied for doctor who, casualty and eastenders×
Fingers crossed!

nonperson 23-10-2022 04:55 PM

15 seconds on TV might be your leap into famous actressness! Especially if it's the EastEnders one. You.might not get noticed much on Casualty.

I should apply for the Gardener's World one too. But I want to be an alien more!

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 04:57 PM


Yes you should! You could end up being the next alan Titchmarsh!

I put something on the local free site and one of my old care coordinators has replied saying yes to it XD
Someone else is already coming to pick it up tomorrow though

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 05:08 PM

That's a shame you didn't get to see anyone, NP. Well done with washing your hair. You can get your bedding changed! I'd love for you to be the next Alan Titchmarsh, I'd watch your show!

I would hate to be in the background in any show. There's a documentary about Glasgow Central Station and that's where I 'rarely' meet my brother and when I'm watching it I'm always hoping I won't see myself!

Take care of yourself Maii.

I think I'll let you off with the bag situation, Beckie. Your explanation was good enough. That would be hugely awkward if you sold to your old cc, do all your treatment people live in the same area as you?

I hope the boiler check goes well and you get all your parcels, Dawn.

nonperson 23-10-2022 05:15 PM

I'd be an absolutely terrible TV presenter! I've accidentally been in the background on a TV show before though, I think it's finally been taken off iPlayer by now. That was so embarrassing because I thought I'd done a really good job of avoiding the cameras. But I'd be ok with being an alien on Doctor Who because no one would know it was me! Apparently you have to submit some sort of video of yourself if you get selected... =/

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 05:17 PM

Out of all the shows I'd end up being on it's most likely going to be 24 hours in A&E or 24 hours in police custody XD
Which is actually filmed in Bedfordshire sooooo......:ermm:

I think it's only her that lives in town. I actually saw her in town the other day! Bumped into her and her daughter a couple of times in asda too. And she's very active on the local selling pages!

I think i remember you mentioning that np!
A video?? Lol

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 05:17 PM

It would be so funny and cool if Beckie was selected. Did you apply for Doctor Who then, NP?

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 05:18 PM

Lol Beckie. I don't want to see you on either of those shows!

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 05:18 PM

I will make sure to mention you all in my speech at the oscars!

Well, the police custody one is filmed in luton and i avoid luton at all costs (there have been like 3 stabbings this week or something)

one_step_closer 23-10-2022 05:19 PM

Aiming high then, Beckie? :laugh:

Oh dear. Definitely stay away from Luton then.

not_so_insig 23-10-2022 05:27 PM

I was in the background of Bargain Hunt. I have been on John Cravens Newsround and my signature (which was the Care Bear in my avatar) was briefly featured in the ryl documentary.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 05:28 PM

Always! ;p

Yes i tend to! I only go there when I'm sectioned. Because the psych wards are there. And then the A&E there when I've been taken there from the psych ward.
That's why it was so ****ing weird going for that scan last week! Because i was there of my own free will!

nonperson 23-10-2022 05:31 PM

Did you not read the terms and conditions, Beckie? =P it mentions a video but not a lot of detail other than that.

Lindsay, I did apply for Doctor Who and Gardener's World so I can meet Monty Don. Might change my mind if I get selected and have to submit this video thingy though. But that's ages away =)

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 05:38 PM

Of course not! I'm far too important to bother with terms and conditions XD

Its started pouring with rain again! Yaaaay!

Argh! Why do i never have any money???
I need to buy clothes!
And pay my council tax......but CLOTHES!!!

nonperson 23-10-2022 05:56 PM

Who needs clothes.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 06:03 PM

I'm trying NOT to get arrested XD
And tbh, literally like 90% of my clothes are way too big now! Like both my jogging bottoms are legit unwearable because they won't stay up!!!

Major thunderstorm going on! So cosy in here with my hot water bottle and fluffy blanket hearing the rain and thunder and seeing the lightning!

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 06:04 PM

Oh and new season of handmaid's tale starts tonight!

nonperson 23-10-2022 06:08 PM

They don't have drawstrings around the waist?

I had the thunder and rain about an hour ago. It was nice. Big rumbly thunder and some flashes of lightning.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 06:17 PM

They didn't really do much!

Apparently it's like a 200 mile storm or something?
Idk. I'm pretty sure i read that somewhere! I may have made that up XD

I made food but now I'm not hungry :(

not_so_insig 23-10-2022 06:23 PM

I haven't got any thunder or rain.

nonperson 23-10-2022 06:29 PM

Eat the food anyway.

I dunno what to do for dinner...

not_so_insig 23-10-2022 06:47 PM

Chilli is my suggestion.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 06:52 PM

I did eat the food!
I am very full now!

nonperson 23-10-2022 07:03 PM

I have all the stuff for chilli but it's too late to be making it now/ too much effort. I've just got to choose something ovenable from the freezer but bleh, also effort.

Well done, Beckie.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 08:01 PM

What did you have?


Oh my god it's so hard to type stuff!
I can't focus on anything!

not_so_insig 23-10-2022 08:21 PM

Egg and chips then nonperson?

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 08:36 PM

Both my arms are tingling! It's so weird!

nonperson 23-10-2022 08:48 PM

No eggs.

I had a random selection of wedges, veggie burger, edamame beans and some pepperoni slices.

Maybe you need to do some quiet calming things, Beckie, that don't involve too much concentration.

maii 23-10-2022 08:57 PM

Thank you, NP. I've managed to get out of sweat pants, but I feel pretty skanky so a bath might help. Thank you for your concern.

maii 23-10-2022 08:59 PM

Really should eat, though I'm not at all hungry.

maii 23-10-2022 09:00 PM

Cacoethes ... I hope your tingling and tingling subside.

Cacoethes 23-10-2022 09:05 PM

Decent dinner np!
Do like a random dinner sometimes

New handmaid's tale is on! Hopefully i can concentrate!

maii 23-10-2022 11:38 PM

I can relate to handmaid's tale, sad to say it. I grew up in Hinduism household and girls were to be 'seen but not heard'. I learned to keep secrets and it sort of stuck. Most of my family has defected away from the faith as they become more aware of the conditioning that was occurring.

Still a great watch and I hope you find it enlightening; at the very least.

maii 23-10-2022 11:39 PM

I feel like a lifeless zombie :(

Cacoethes 24-10-2022 12:05 AM

A lot of people are likening the handmaid's tale to what's going on in the US right now! Can see that. Very scary!

maii 24-10-2022 12:38 AM

ABSOLUTELY SO! Very VERY scary as we're going backwards. Women's rights have eroded away and lgbtq rights are also on the chopping block. Trans people are being murdered more now. We never thought that could happen in 2022 but it has.

Please let us know how you feel after watching it. I would recommend watching in parts is it become triggering.

Tonight I'm watching Shark movie marathon on the TV.

Cacoethes 24-10-2022 12:45 AM

Very scary!
We have a lot of problems over here in the UK but nothing like over there!

It was good!
I don't get triggered about these things. Or most things actually! One of my favourite genres is dystopian fiction.

I love shark movies! Especially really terrible ones! I've watched films that make sharknado look oscar worthy!

Cacoethes 24-10-2022 08:48 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 24-10-2022 11:31 AM

Morning everyone. I am sitting here bored and having got dressed because I am waiting for the boiler man to come and check my boiler. Also amazon too.

one_step_closer 24-10-2022 12:57 PM

Afternoon. How are you all?

Day inside for you then, Dawn?

not_so_insig 24-10-2022 01:23 PM

Yes plus it sounds rather rough weather wise outside. Definitely a day for sitting inside.
