I'd rather go somewhere hot but I suppose if there's enough alcohol I'll be ok. :P

My passport is good til 2019 so I'm good!

Beckie, people are the worst!! I have a friend asking like every day if I've taken my meds, Ritzi tattling to my cpn and psych about how I'm doing x, y and z and then and then. Yeah. Rude!

Serendipity. 12-04-2017 06:18 PM

I'm Scottish tooo! Scotland is a good place!

People are just concerned and being good friends you know!

Sketchy 12-04-2017 06:18 PM

We always have enough alcohol up here. I should update my passport though. Would be nice to go somewhere warm. Scotland certainly isn't warm.

Sketchy 12-04-2017 06:19 PM

Yay Hannah , we can be tour guides!

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 06:19 PM

I'm liking these plans!!!

Voldemort 12-04-2017 06:20 PM

Take me to a pub with a nice smoking area and I'll be fine!

People are annoying. *Scowl*

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 06:21 PM

I'm eating a mini twister lolly and a huge piece just broke off in my mouth and it was SO COLD!!!! D:

Sketchy 12-04-2017 06:23 PM

Ooh twister lolly. Yum!

Don't worry Amy. I can show you many pubs with smoking areas. Alright, you may get soaked from the rain, but you'll be able to smoke and drink. :)

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 06:24 PM

I've been 4 weeks smoke free today!
I do miss it though!!!

Sketchy 12-04-2017 06:26 PM

That's awesome Beckie. You are doing really well. I said hi to zombiehunter for you. We had a few cheeky pints in town.

Serendipity. 12-04-2017 06:28 PM

Well done Beckie! :D

Did you have a nice time Lorraine? I haven't spoken to zombiehunter for aaaages! How is he?

Sketchy 12-04-2017 06:29 PM

He was good. We had fun.

Voldemort 12-04-2017 06:31 PM

Well done, Beckie! I will quit eventually. :P

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 06:34 PM

Thanks guys!!

Glad you had fun Lorraine!

Sketchy 12-04-2017 06:36 PM

Right, I'm off to the shop. I want to buy some fizzy drinks. Catch you guys later.

Voldemort 12-04-2017 06:38 PM

Bye! Yum. Fizzy drinks. I have a Vanilla Coke right now.

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 06:43 PM

See you in a bit Lorraine!

Vanilla coke is just wrong!!! I have coke zero. Because the packs are randomly a pound cheaper than diet coke in asda atm.

Voldemort 12-04-2017 06:47 PM

Nuuuuh. Vanilla Coke is amazing!! Coke Zero is foul. Mank mank mank. I'd rather pay the extra and get Diet Coke!

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 06:50 PM

I thought that too until I was forced to buy zero and now I really like it!!!

Any flavoured coke is just wrong. Vanilla, cherry and whatever else they've come up with now!!!

Voldemort 12-04-2017 06:51 PM

Whaaaat?? I love cherry Coke!! And Dr Pepper! Get in mah belly!

Wonderland. 12-04-2017 06:52 PM

Cherry is the best!

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 06:54 PM

Dr Pepper is fine. That's MEANT to be cherry flavour!
Coke is meant to be coke flavour!!!

I'm off to have a shower! Be good!!

not_so_insig 12-04-2017 06:57 PM

I love cherry coke but it has to be proper coke. Hate cheap coke.

My friend came before with a easter egg. She's never been in my flat before so I showed her around. She said that I had a nice flat and that she liked my bears.

Voldemort 12-04-2017 07:05 PM

I'm never good. Bahahahaha.

Ahh, that's good, Dawn!

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 07:16 PM

I can't stand cheap coke either. Cheap lemonade is fine though!

True dat amy :p

I am showered. Although I slipped over when shaving my legs so ouch!!
But at least I have smooth shiny legs now!!

Voldemort 12-04-2017 07:21 PM

Some cheap Coke is ok but I much prefer the real stuff!

Ouch, Beckie! Smooth legs rock though!

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 07:26 PM

I thought I'd better shave. I've got a long journey tomorrow and if I collapse or something then I wouldn't want any examinations in hospital with hairy legs or pits :p
(This is basically my reason for shaving like 98% of the time because it's not unusual for me to end up in hospital randomly!!!)

Sketchy 12-04-2017 07:27 PM

I'm back from the shop. I got Diet Coke and diet irn bru. I quite like cherry coke, but it can be a bit sickly.

Voldemort 12-04-2017 07:30 PM

Oh dear, Beckie!! When I was in hospital I didn't shave for like 2 months. That was a mammoth task!

Ooh irn bru! Yum!

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 07:33 PM

I haven't had irn bru in years!! I do love it!

Yep when I haven't been allowed to shave for months on end it is a bit of a task to sort it out afterwards!!
Does feel good though!

Sketchy 12-04-2017 07:35 PM

There's nothing better than that feeling when you've just shaved your legs.

Voldemort 12-04-2017 07:35 PM

Oh yeah it really does! They're really odd in my hospital. Sometimes they'll let me shave and other times they don't. I usually don't bother asking and just wait until I have leave and a shower at home!

not_so_insig 12-04-2017 07:36 PM

I suffer from excessive hair and I felt like a freak when I was IP. I couldn't wait to get home so I can shave. Next time I go IP I am going to take a load of veet as I have to use it everyday as razors are banned. I tried facial hair removal cream but it was useless.

Sketchy 12-04-2017 07:37 PM

I remember in hospital I missed shaving.

Voldemort 12-04-2017 07:37 PM

Veet never worked for me! I have a vivid memory of being up and using it under my arms. Oh my god. The burn!!! It was so, SO painful!

not_so_insig 12-04-2017 07:40 PM

It's bad enough bring in hospital without feeling like everyone is staring at you because you have a beard.

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 07:40 PM

I was eventually allowed to shave under supervision but only in like the last month I was there!
It was such a hassle getting a staff member that was free though so I just waited until I had home leave!

I can't use any other method of hair removal. Oh the pain!!!

Wonderland. 12-04-2017 07:40 PM

When I was in rehab some of us had a contest over who was the hairiest :tongue2: I didn't win. Woes.

We weren't allowed razors. And weren't allowed veet either after someone decided to do something completely lame with it! We were however allowed ladyshavers which just didn't make any sense to me!

not_so_insig 12-04-2017 07:41 PM

Veet works for me but it has to be the sensitive stuff.

Voldemort 12-04-2017 07:42 PM

Razors are at the nurses discretion on my ward. It was so annoying sometimes because there'd be two of us at the nurses office looking to shave and they'd say yes to the other woman and be like, no, to me. Rude!

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 07:42 PM

I tried an epilator once. That hurt!!

Voldemort 12-04-2017 07:43 PM

Epilators look evil! Waxing doesn't sound too great either!

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 07:44 PM

My mum waxed my armpits for me once when I was a teenager. It was sooo painful! And there was blood!!!

Wonderland. 12-04-2017 07:44 PM

Hahaha, awful isn't it!

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 07:46 PM


Voldemort 12-04-2017 07:46 PM

Oh god. Sounds traumatising!

Cacoethes 12-04-2017 07:48 PM

It was!! I was actually in tears! Never. Again!

Sketchy 12-04-2017 07:48 PM

That does sound painful. I'll stick with just shaving.

Voldemort 12-04-2017 07:48 PM

I think I'd be able to try a leg wax but never, ever my armpits!

Wonderland. 12-04-2017 07:50 PM

Leg wax is fine at least for me.
