Excited about new Taskmaster!

nonperson 18-03-2021 07:47 PM

Yeah I'm home. Should get changed and some dinner...

It's on at 9pm so way too late for me to focus on properly on a weekday. I'll probably watch it at the weekend.

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 07:49 PM

Me too Luna!

What are you having np?

nonperson 18-03-2021 07:53 PM

Not sure whether to have cornish pasty or microwave curry...

Curry is quicker so probably that!

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 08:34 PM

What kind of curry?

nonperson 18-03-2021 08:42 PM

Errrr... you know I can't remember without going to the fridge to check. Some sort of saag masala, maybe?

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 08:45 PM

I have no idea what that is
Is it spicy?

I'm going into hospital tonight. ETA for transport is 10:15pm. So looks like I'll be up to watch taskmaster

nonperson 18-03-2021 08:51 PM

Saag is spinach, masala is tomatoey. I think there's chicken in it too. And not spicy!

That's late =o Taskmaster might be a good distraction if you're nervous while waiting.

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 08:55 PM

Sounds nice!

It is!
Yes it will be. It's on channel 4 right?

nonperson 18-03-2021 09:05 PM

It's in the microwave now. =)

And yep, channel 4!

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 09:13 PM

Yay!

Good good! I shall be watching that then

nonperson 18-03-2021 09:28 PM

Curry was good. Bit spicier than I was expecting but within my spice tolerance. =P

It's only half an hour away and I'm still awake so I dunno whether to watch it or not, hmmm.

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 09:40 PM

That's good :)

Doooo it! Then we can talk about it!

nonperson 18-03-2021 09:50 PM

Now I've had food I'm all warm and sleepy though.

But I want to watch it... It might wake me up a bit.

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 09:52 PM

It's a tough decision.

I want you to watch it but you don't want to wake yourself up too much which wouldn't be good!

nonperson 18-03-2021 09:56 PM

I don't think there's any chance of waking up too much!

I'll give it a go =P

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 09:57 PM

That's good then!

Yay!
It's nearly time!!

nonperson 18-03-2021 10:09 PM

Loved the song!

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 10:14 PM

Me too!
I need that on my ipod!

nonperson 18-03-2021 10:20 PM

I think Mike Wozniak is my favourite so far.

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 10:25 PM

Same. I really like him!

Catch the rat!

nonperson 18-03-2021 10:33 PM

Do you know him from before Taskmaster?

I like his bumbling.

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 10:42 PM

No I have never heard of him before!
I like his style though

nonperson 18-03-2021 10:51 PM

I haven't either.

I recognise Charlotte Ritchie though but I'm not sure why.

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 11:03 PM

I don't recognise any of them!

Transport came before the end :(

nonperson 18-03-2021 11:08 PM

Noooo. The last task was total carnage XD You'll have to catch up on All 4.

Cacoethes 18-03-2021 11:38 PM

I definitely will!

[Luna] 19-03-2021 08:35 AM

Morning thread dwellers, how is everyone? What's everyone up to today?

Cacoethes 19-03-2021 10:33 AM

Morning Luna

I've just been rudely awakened for my meds
I'm not up to anything
How about you?

[Luna] 19-03-2021 10:44 AM

Ah the joys of hospital. How are you getting on?

Cacoethes 19-03-2021 10:49 AM

Yep!
It's ok I suppose.
Though no one remembers me which is rude (not the hospital from a few months ago)
Just waiting for the tea trolley to be brought out

[Luna] 19-03-2021 10:53 AM

Haha rude! How can they not remember you?

I’m currently watching Dr Phil, the man is such a prat and yet I can’t stop watching!

shadow-light 19-03-2021 10:58 AM

how's peopel this morning?


I'm fighting with a WCA questionaire... the answer box spaces are TINY so I cannot work out how to get all the info down :laugh:

Cacoethes 19-03-2021 11:13 AM

Tbf I was only here for 17 days, was very depressed so stayed in bed the whole time and it was a while ago! But still!

I've never watched an episode of Dr Phil but it looks entertaining!

Hi Hazel
How are you?
The questionnaire sounds frustrating!

[Luna] 19-03-2021 11:13 AM

Hi Hazel, sounds frustrating!

I'm okay, have just been making some wax melts and I'm going to have a bath and start getting things together for an appointment later today.

Cacoethes 19-03-2021 11:22 AM

Your wax melts always look so delicious Luna!

Hope the appointment goes well

nonperson 19-03-2021 11:30 AM

What are wax melts? I keep hearing about these things but have no idea what they are.

I'm at work, boo...

Sun's out though so that's a plus.

shadow-light 19-03-2021 11:30 AM

i've also never seen Dr Phil, not 100% sure what/who it is :laugh:




I'm semi-ok, better today than the last few days anyway

dont think you're meant to eat them :P

Cacoethes 19-03-2021 11:33 AM

As far as I can tell they are little wax molds that you burn in a special thing and they smell really nice.
Luna makes some amazing ones and can probably provide a better explanation than that!

Boo to work!
But that's good that it's sunny

Glad you're feeling a bit better Hazel

No you're definitely not meant to eat them! But they look tasty :p

tamobhuuta 19-03-2021 11:35 AM

Morning all. I slept well, only woke up a few times. Today I feel like doing inside exercise.

I'm sure you'd all like to know this: today is St Joseph so you don't have to do your Lenten or Friday promise. I will be eating chocolate guilt free.

one_step_closer 19-03-2021 11:52 AM

Morning everyone. Busy in here. I hope you all have a good day.

tamobhuuta 19-03-2021 11:53 AM

Hi osc, how are you?

.

Wax melts are scented shapes of wax that you melt slowly with an oil burner and they are like a stronger version of a scented candle.

Dr Phil is an amaerican TV 'Psychiatrist'. I put quotations because I'm not really sure what his actual credentials are lol

Cacoethes 19-03-2021 01:28 PM

He does look rather entertaining

[Luna] 19-03-2021 01:31 PM

It is entertaining and rather mind boggling.

Cacoethes 19-03-2021 01:36 PM

Grrr I'm having to use my phone as a wifi hotspot because the hospital Internet is so ****

[Luna] 19-03-2021 01:52 PM

Argh, that's really annoying. Hospital wifi is the worst.
