True dat!!!

Do you get a new colour belt then, if you pass?? Or something equally cool that makes you proud??? :D

Cacoethes 03-11-2022 09:51 PM

Yep new belt!
Yellow! Which means I'll be joining the main school! Eek!

not_so_insig 03-11-2022 11:05 PM

I have been cleaning my flat Lindsay. I usually clean it on a Thursday.

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 09:04 AM

Morning everyone!

one_step_closer 04-11-2022 11:26 AM

Morning Beckie. How are you?

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 11:39 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Just been to asda.
I picked up my washing up liquid to scan it and it squirted everywhere! All over the till, over my shopping and over me! I am now going to smell of lemon for the rest of the day XD

How are you?

not_so_insig 04-11-2022 02:33 PM

Afternoon all. Did you get another bottle Beckie or have you got an half full bottle of washing up liquid?

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 03:50 PM

I kept the bottle! It was actually a very small amount that came out! Like you wouldn't even notice that it wasn't full if you looked at it! But a small amount that seemed to get everywhere!
I no longer smell of lemon though! Lol!

Been to the retail park! Got a jumper from H&M (used the gift card that Jenna got me for my birthday! Thanks Jenna!) A top from matalan and a few bits from M&S.

How are you dawn?

one_step_closer 04-11-2022 05:45 PM

Were you trying to start a washing up liquid fight, Beckie? Sounds like you've done some good shopping today. Definitely the time for a cosy jumper.

How has your day been, Dawn?

I was at a meeting thing about how MH services are working and what we'd like from them. But not about the CMHT. About the ones down from that like where my support worker comes from. Someone was a bit anxious and upset so I gave her my fidget cube to use so I had to settle with stroking my bunny keyring.

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 05:54 PM

It did look like it!
I have!
It's a purple Nirvana jumper!

Well done for getting through it lindsay!

one_step_closer 04-11-2022 06:01 PM

Sounds nice, I didn't know they sold stuff like that in H&M although I never go in there anyway. I ordered a t-shirt online that says something like 'this human belongs to Crookshanks' and there will be a picture of Crookshanks on it. Best t-shirt ever! I'm hoping it fits because I think it was unisex and I can never get sizes right anyway.

Thank you. I think I need a bravery sticker or something.

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 06:18 PM

Bands like nirvana and ramones are often on fashion clothing now! They're 'trendy'.
Most people that wear them don't even know they are bands tbh, let alone any of the songs! Lol
But I love nirvana.

That t shirt sounds awesome!

You definitely need a bravery sticker!

I've eaten too many jelly beans and now my teeth feel weird XD

one_step_closer 04-11-2022 07:04 PM

Mmm, jelly beans. Brush your teeth?

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 07:08 PM

I can't brush my teeth at this time of day!
It's fine
Although i have another problem. It is dinner time and I'm not hungry! And I need to shower but I can't shower until I've had dinner! And it's already 6pm!

one_step_closer 04-11-2022 07:09 PM

That sounds like you have very strict rules! Have you got something light you can eat?

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 07:15 PM

It seems that I do!
It's not even intentional, it's just....how things are! Lol
I am a creature of habit!
I bought a butternut squash risotto from m&s which is quite light!
Also garlic doughballs.

one_step_closer 04-11-2022 07:17 PM

Do you fancy eating any of those things?

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 07:27 PM

I do!
Just cooked the doughballs (1 min in the microwave!) Omg they are SO good!

Zurg 04-11-2022 07:49 PM

Yay Lindsay!!! You are a champ for going!!!! And a hero for helping someone else that was anxious <3

I went to a grocery store and the pet shop earlier today. Then i cleaned out Findus' litter tray and hoovered the flat. Apparently that was enough to make me Fall asleep late afternoon and not wake up until Way past my normal dinner time. Awkward!!!
But now i've had chips for dinner :D

Beckie, i am one of those strange people that really is a bit pissed about fashion brands almost exploiting old bands and put them on fashionable (and often awful!!) t-shirts and the like. When i was a teenager i paid a million quids for each cool band t-shirt and people thought i was weird.
…. I was weird. Ok, i AM still weird but it's the principles!!!!! You gotta have principles!! Otherwise the world Will be consumed by total anarchy!!!!

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 07:57 PM

Well done for doing the things zurg!
And yay for chips!

I've had my butternut sqaush risotto now. Omg it was so delicious! Can see why people shop at M&S! Bit posh for regular shopping though!

I used to get annoyed about it but just roll my eyes now!
I'm sure the bands are getting well paid for them! I would hope so anyway!

nonperson 04-11-2022 08:01 PM

I'm partial to picking up random M&S food from time to time. It's a nice treat =)

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 08:04 PM

It was half price! There's no way I'd spend over 4 on it. Very lucky!
I may have to venture to the retail park more often! Just for a treat. M&S and costa!

How are you np?

nonperson 04-11-2022 08:50 PM

Yup, I always look for the reduced stuff too. Makes it even tastier =P

I'm... tired. Glad it's Friday.

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 09:14 PM

It does indeed!

Any plans for the weekend?

I'm picking out guinea pig stuff for when I have money!

Zurg 04-11-2022 09:54 PM

Goddammit Findus!!!! He has killed my ancient laptop :(
Chewed the power cable. Probably weeks ago. That laptop and battery were ancient enough to require constant power. It's going to be impossible to revive that ****. AAARHHHAGGAHAH!!!!

And my stupid neighbour is having a party with stupid music.
I could seriously kick someone in the balls right now!!! >:(

Cacoethes 04-11-2022 09:57 PM

Oh nooooo!!!
Was there anything important on the laptop?

Hopefully they'll stop soon!

nonperson 05-11-2022 03:23 AM

Can't you just get a new cable, Zurg? Won't the laptop turn on again once it's got power?

Cacoethes 05-11-2022 07:30 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 05-11-2022 10:20 AM

Morning all.

Zurg 05-11-2022 11:15 AM

Morning NP and Beckie :)

NP, batteries tend to die after a while without a power connection. The cells inside the battery stop working and they can't be restored. I'll most likely need a new battery as Well as a new power cable. But the laptop is 9 years old so i'm a bit unsure if i can even save it at this point….

Are you guys up to anything today???

nonperson 05-11-2022 11:26 AM

Morning Zurg.

Hm, well the battery in my old laptop died but I took that out and just ran it directly from the power cable with no issues. And I have another 14 year old laptop that still turns on in that way! The battery itself should be irrelevant if you can still plug the laptop directly into some power?

I need to shower and clean the kitchen and do an early food shop... then hope it stops raining so I can sneak over the road for a small fireworks display this evening.

You up to much today?

Cacoethes 05-11-2022 12:16 PM

Hey guys!

I had pilates and taekwando this morning :-D
But Jasmine has cancelled on me. Oh the busy social life of a 10 year old!
Not sure what to do for the rest of the day! Probably asda. Lol! And do some washing.

nonperson 05-11-2022 12:38 PM

Was it your grading today?

Cacoethes 05-11-2022 12:49 PM

Nope that's on Thursday!
I wish it had been today. I'm so excited!

Was just practice today

one_step_closer 05-11-2022 01:27 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope you all have a good day.

I hope you get to go to the fireworks display NP.

How dare Jasmine cancel your meet up! Sounds like you've got things you can do anyway.

I thought I had loads of housework to do but I just sped through everything.

Cacoethes 05-11-2022 01:46 PM

Hey lindsay!

I know! But tbf, when I was 10 I'd much rather hang out with my friends instead of my mum! She's just growing up!

Well done! Do you have anything fun planned for the rest of the day?

nonperson 05-11-2022 01:49 PM

Someone come and do my housework D=

Cacoethes 05-11-2022 01:57 PM


I've been to asda. Bought far too much. Again! Lots of deals on stuff I usually buy! So I'm stocked up for a bit!
And also picked up some morrocan style salmon in the reduced section!

tamobhuuta 05-11-2022 02:21 PM

My mum and big sis came to see me, and I had a shower. I am sad because it's the weekend so there's no doctors on the telly.

Cacoethes 05-11-2022 02:36 PM

Did you have a nice visit?
Ah that's a shame!

I'm watching doctor who.
It's the episode where the daleks and cybermen trash talk each other. Love it!

tamobhuuta 05-11-2022 02:52 PM

Which doctor?

Cacoethes 05-11-2022 02:57 PM

David Tennant! My favourite!

nonperson 05-11-2022 03:56 PM

That's a good series. But Rose... ='(

Cacoethes 05-11-2022 04:33 PM

I knooow! Very sad :(

It's the 'judoon platoon on the moon' episode now! Apparently they only named them the judoon so they could make david tennant say that line! Because he really struggled with the oo sounds Because of him being Scottish! Lol

nonperson 05-11-2022 04:48 PM

Haha. That is a good line to say!

I need to watch the very latest Doctor Who series. I haven't been keeping up.

Cacoethes 05-11-2022 05:03 PM

I've only seen a couple of the latest ones!
I did watch the most recent one though.

What makes me laugh is how the daleks are always 'absolutely definitely 100% extinct this time' multiple times a series!
Spoiler alert. They're not and probably never will be!

not_so_insig 05-11-2022 05:06 PM

Hello all.

nonperson 05-11-2022 05:07 PM

They're too bad to kill off forever!

Daleks vs cybermen was an epic battle. One of their best appearances.

Cacoethes 05-11-2022 05:13 PM

I love the daleks!
Apparently my auntie was TERRIFIED of them as a child!

Yes it was!
And the daleks got so sassy!
'This is not war, this is pest control!'

nonperson 05-11-2022 05:18 PM

My parents used to chase me and my sister around the house yelling EXTERMINATE! We were terrified too.

The trash talking was so good XD
