Hey everyone, I am waiting around for my neuro physio appointment in 20 minutes.

It's lovely and sunny outside and I hope I have energy to go out there later. Haven't been out yet as I didn't want to tire myself about before physio.

I like wordsearches.

How are things going for you OSC?

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 12:58 PM

It has not improved. Lol

I hope your appointment goes ok jen

long road 18-04-2023 01:05 PM

Oh no. Headphones on and ignore the ward?

I hope so too, lasts weeks was exhausting but helpful.

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 01:07 PM

That's the plan!

Hopefully this one will be helpful also!

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 01:11 PM

My wordsearch was car themed. I'm getting to the end of my book of wordsearches. I also tried some reading but not really feeling it today. So now I'm watching the news, waiting for doctors :)

not_so_insig 18-04-2023 01:52 PM

I fell back asleep. Although I don't feel 100% I feel much better. Not sure if it's hay-fever as the pollen count is high here today and I am sneezing more than usual.

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 02:21 PM

Could be hay-fever, I've been sneezy recently.

one_step_closer 18-04-2023 02:39 PM

I hope your appointment goes well, Jen and you are able to get outside for a bit.

What are you listening to, Beckie?

You'll be needing to get a new word search book, Tamo. Enjoy Doctors, I don't know why I'm saying that because you always enjoy it!

I've also been quite sneezy and it feels like allergy sneezes. I hate hay fever.

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 02:44 PM

How's your day going osc?

one_step_closer 18-04-2023 02:46 PM

Messed everything up but, hey! Washed my hair and went to Tesco then have basically just been being lazy. Hard to focus on much.

How are you getting on, Tamo?

not_so_insig 18-04-2023 03:15 PM

Cpn turned up an hour early. Good job I was in and not in the shower. Am waiting for amazon now then I have a rest before my parents come.

not_so_insig 18-04-2023 03:35 PM

Beckie did you get your jeans from evri in the end?

not_so_insig 18-04-2023 04:20 PM

Amazon have been. I had my id ready as it was an age restricted item but he didn't ask for it. Just my year of birth. I must look old :laugh:

one_step_closer 18-04-2023 04:24 PM

Maybe they wouldn't have been able to calculate your age if they asked for your full DOB, Dawn! I know I'm rubbish at it.

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 04:26 PM

Last time I ordered an age restricted product I didn't get IDed.

Well done for getting some stuff done osc.

one_step_closer 18-04-2023 05:03 PM


I used to get ID'd a lot. I look quite a bit younger than I am. It was worse in supermarkets when we had to wear a mask and I was wearing a hat too so they couldn't really see my face.

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 05:26 PM

A few years back I got mistaken for an under 16 at the Harry Potter tour!

long road 18-04-2023 06:02 PM

Afternoon/Evening everyone!

I just woke up from a 2 and a half hour nap. Needed it after my physio session and then eating a late lunch.

Does being under 16 get your discount Tamo? If so I would have been tempted to go along with it!

Ahimsa 18-04-2023 06:06 PM

Hey guys,

Hope you're having an okay day?

I'm just home from work.

not_so_insig 18-04-2023 06:06 PM

I also got ided a lot Lindsay. Someone once asked me on the bus why I wasn't in school but I was 29 at the time so far too old. I have been told I don't look my age which doesn't help sometimes.

long road 18-04-2023 06:37 PM

Hey Beth,

My day has been exhausting but maybe helpful.

Hooray for another day of work over! Have you got your second job tonight or do you get a night with the kitty cats?

Hope you let yourself rest and don't over do the chores.

Sometimes I find that delivery drivers are on such a time crunch they just test you to see if date of birth matches the account when there are age restricted products.

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 06:46 PM

I did get my jeans thank you dawn!
I think it's a different courier on weekdays. He seems a bit more on the ball. Good old denis.

I ordered vapes on ebay once and did the take a photo to estimate age once. I was highly offended when it accepted my photo with no problems!

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 06:53 PM

Photo to estimate age, what is this???

Also hello. I have returned from The Workplace.

long road 18-04-2023 06:54 PM

You are free for the evening Jenna. How exciting!

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 06:55 PM

Yes! I was shocked too!
You can either enter in id info or something, which i couldn't do because psych ward. So you can take a selfie and it estimates your age!

Hellooo! I hope the youths were good to you today.

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 06:59 PM

Pfft, don't like all this modern technology.

Speaking of, do we all know about this alert thing happening on Sunday???????

It just meant they wouldn't body scan me for weapons.

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 07:05 PM

I'm a bit nervous about the alert but I'm assured there's nothing to worry about.

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 07:10 PM

I agree that you don't need to worry, but you can turn them off if that would make you feel better?

I am considering turning off my phone before 3pm as it should only transmit to phones actively connected to towers. Sudden loud noises freak me out and trigger seizures and even though I know it's at 3pm the noise could still be too much.

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 07:12 PM

Yeah I'm not looking forward to it.
Because I'll most likely have headphones on loud and completely forget about the alert and probably destroy my eardrums.

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 07:12 PM

Yeah, from what I read, phones turned off won't get it. I do have an mpg link for how to just turn off emergency alerts though if anyone wants it :)

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 07:13 PM

Out-ninja'd. I was replying to Jen :plain:

Well that's boring. We want free things! I mean not being body scanned is probably preferable though.

Mpeg could be handy Jenna, I think I have turned it off on my phone but.not sure. Although I am in two minds about turning off all notifications in case at some point it is something I need to know. Fir now when I know it's just a test I am definitely avoiding it!

Pi.R^2 18-04-2023 07:43 PM

TW: mention of domestic abuse

long road 18-04-2023 08:08 PM

Thanks Jenna.

I just had some Crunchie Rocks, they are amazing they are like cornflake cakes had a baby with smashed up crunchies and got coated in extra chocolate.

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 08:09 PM

Oooh they sound good!

long road 18-04-2023 08:11 PM

They are very good. And controversially I think they may be an improvement on an actual Crunchie. I like crunchies but that much honeycomb in one piece can be a bit too sweet sometimes.

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 08:19 PM

I get what you mean
I miss a cornflake cake tbh.
So simple yet so delicious

long road 18-04-2023 08:34 PM

So fun to make as a kid as well. Just stirring and dolloping and 'accidentally' getting covered in chocolate you could lick off afterwards

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 08:36 PM

Good times indeed!
Someone remind me to make them when I'm released back into society

long road 18-04-2023 08:37 PM

*takes notes*

I shall try and remember!

tamobhuuta 18-04-2023 08:38 PM

Crunchie cornflake cakes sound yummy at every stage of manufacture.

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 08:42 PM

Thank you Jen!

I love crunchies anyway.
I haven't had a chocolate bar in forever.
Whenever I'm in the shops i don't fancy any of them, but you can bet that later on when I'm home, i will want one XD

long road 18-04-2023 08:45 PM

The Crunchie Rocks arent even something I invented cadburys make and sell them. But I concur that Al the ingredients are delicious.

Has anyone else tried the Crunchie ice creams on a stick? They are tasty, its honey comb flavour ice-cream , covered in chocolate and with bits of popping candy. The popping candy weirdly but awesomely gives you the texture of honeycomb bubbles in your mouth.

I hear you on not fancying them in the shop and getting home and wanting them. I don't buy chocolate super often but I really enjoy it when I do. Especially if I manage to split it over a couple of days and spread out the deliciousness.

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 08:48 PM

Ohhh i think I've heard of them actually!

Yes i have. A while ago!
I've been wanting ben and jerrys. Even though it's massively expensive XD

long road 18-04-2023 08:52 PM

To be fair its not quite ice cream on a stick weather yet!

I got Ben and Jerry's Phish food for my birthday because it was on special offer so was closer to an acceptable price for ice-cream! I am not a big fan of cookie dough though and the brownie in there ice-cream sometimes I like and sometimes I don't.

Cacoethes 18-04-2023 08:58 PM

I wouldn't know. Haven't been outside in about a week XD

Mmm phish food.
I like the half baked one. Haven't had b&js in years!

long road 18-04-2023 09:07 PM

Well apart from today being sunny it's been pretty wet and grey in my part of the world. And even with the sun there was a fair breeze. I haven't made it outside since Thursday just because FND. I hope they let you see the sky at some point soon.

I am a big fan of the marshmallow in phish food. Does half baked have marshmallow?

Ahimsa 18-04-2023 09:12 PM

Does anyone fancy some quiz questions? Sunday and Tuesday are my quiz nights
