In the big display glasshouse, they always fly in and can't figure out how to get out again. This one's got a small wound on its head though, probably from flying into the glass, and it actually flew down to me for water when I was watering in there yesterday so it must be desperate but it still won't let me catch it. I left out a tray of water and food before I left... Can't do much more than that. =/

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 01:23 PM

Aw hope it feels better soon

How do you catch them on the times they "let you"?


nonperson 25-04-2020 01:29 PM

Usually when they've dazed themselves a bit, I can sneak up behind and grab them. Then take them outside.

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 01:30 PM

Ah the cat equivalent, you just don't plan on eating them XD

Hope not-

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 01:35 PM

I just conducted an entire piece in the kitchen using a wooden spoon...
Ah well, I got the count right XD

one_step_closer 25-04-2020 01:41 PM

Let's make a utensils band!

nonperson 25-04-2020 01:41 PM

Yes exactly like a cat!

Haha, fun. =)

nonperson 25-04-2020 01:41 PM

I always play the egg slicer like a harp. >.>

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 01:42 PM

You won't eat them will you? O.o

Why not? :)
Which one would you like to play?

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 01:46 PM


Who'd like to be the conductor?

nonperson 25-04-2020 02:11 PM

I don't think we need one. =P

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 02:11 PM

Probably not

What're you up to?

nonperson 25-04-2020 02:12 PM

Having lunch/second breakfast/snacks... and watching a brand new version of Thundercats.


Shirayuki 25-04-2020 02:14 PM

Weeeell you're forgetting these:
Breakfast - 7 a.m.
Second Breakfast - 9 a.m.
Elevenses - 11 a.m.
Luncheon - 1 p.m.
Afternoon Tea - 3 p.m.
Dinner - 6 p.m.
Supper - 9 p.m.

What's Thundercats about?

Trying to do the kitchen but I really don't want to

The live forum view won't let me see any of your posts :/

nonperson 25-04-2020 02:22 PM

Oh weird. Sometimes the live forum view gets stuck for me. It'll fix eventually.

I missed the first three meals though so sort of combining them all into one.

It's a cartoon about a group of alien lions and tigers with a magic sword. This new version is particularly silly and different to the original (and first remake) but it's serving as a distraction.

I should be doing the kitchen too.

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 02:22 PM

It worked!

Seems fun!

I don't want toooooo

But fine :P

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 02:24 PM

Hey, I'll do the dishes if you can broom :P

nonperson 25-04-2020 03:39 PM

I've done most of the dishes now, but given up as there's too much sun coming through the window.

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 03:44 PM

Me too lol

Just got about....

45 more?

Yeah that sounds about right :(

nonperson 25-04-2020 03:46 PM

45 dishes?! How many did you have to start with?

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 03:50 PM

Around 105 :((((

We've got 6 people in the house and my siblings use one thing once 'lightly' then get another

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 03:51 PM

Mums doing two HUGE dishes right now because I wouldn't be able to do those two on my own

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 03:55 PM

Aaand your posts are all gone now :/

nonperson 25-04-2020 04:00 PM

Maybe there should be a "wash after use" rule if there are that many to do. o.O

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 04:02 PM

There really should!

But then they make an even bigger mess and I have to clean it all up, and that's harder than the beginning

I like Gary Barlow's voice, and him on piano is amazing ^^"

nonperson 25-04-2020 04:15 PM

Yeah he's a good musician. He's much cooler now than he was originally, lol.

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 04:16 PM


I've only got two dishes left and TONS of spoons and knives and all that fun stuff, you?

nonperson 25-04-2020 04:18 PM

I've given up for now. Leaving everything to dry and I've got a dish soaking and recycling to clean.

Should probably be doing some other cleaning or hoovering now but meh... Need to shower too. =/

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 04:21 PM

Have fun!

I need to shower too ._.

nonperson 25-04-2020 04:23 PM

Didn't say I was actually going to be doing any of that, heh. More likely to just lay on the sofa.

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 04:24 PM

If you plan on doing it :)

The live forum views letting me see your posts again! *gasps and covers mouth* don't jinx it!!

nonperson 25-04-2020 04:26 PM

The plan is always there, the actual doing it, not so much.

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 04:27 PM

I feel you XD

Same goes for early morning studying and me XD

one_step_closer 25-04-2020 04:28 PM

I've hoovered today and cleaned the kitchen and bathroom. Need to fill the bird feeders when my neighbours go in for the night.

I'm bored.

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 04:29 PM

Good job!

I was earlier but mum shoved me towards the dishes and said "knock yourself out" so here I am :)

one_step_closer 25-04-2020 04:32 PM

Washing dishes isn't too bad but I wouldn't want to do it for a whole family!

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 04:32 PM

Yeah, it's quite fun when there's not so many

How are you?

one_step_closer 25-04-2020 04:33 PM

Tired and lacking in focus.

How are you apart from drowning in dishes?

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 04:35 PM

Maybe you can take a nap for a bit?

I'm not sure

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 04:43 PM

I've only got a bit of spoons left now


Cacoethes 25-04-2020 05:31 PM

Hi everyone
I only got up at like midday
Currently watching pocahontas!
Just watched mulan.
And a nurse got me coke zero

one_step_closer 25-04-2020 05:38 PM

Pepsi Max Cherry, Beckie!!!

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 05:49 PM

Disney is awesome ^^

Not a fan of cherry much

Cacoethes 25-04-2020 05:57 PM

Coke zero is far superior!

nonperson 25-04-2020 06:20 PM

Cherries and berries squash is the way to go.

Cacoethes 25-04-2020 06:29 PM

I do enjoy fruit squash!
But coke zero is my favourite

nonperson 25-04-2020 07:20 PM

I've never liked Coke or Pepsi.

Shirayuki 25-04-2020 07:22 PM

Don't mind Pepsi but my favorites Canada Dry

Can't have much caffeine though because it makes me hyped ^^"
