That makes sense NP. I think when you’re in the middle of it it can seem more exciting sometimes, and road closures etc are not really a big deal, you’re right. They had to close some of the roads on Sunday for the Queen coming down Scotland, but we missed the traffic thankfully.

Also, the plan for the Queen to travel down from Balmoral was called operation unicorn, which I thought was quite cool!

Cacoethes 13-09-2022 10:00 PM

Operation unicorn is indeed a very cool name

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 08:04 AM

Morning everyone

nonperson 14-09-2022 08:04 AM

I don't know if exciting is the right word.

Operation Unicorn is a very good name. A unicorn being Scotland's national animal, right? They like to give all the plans appropriate names. The Duke's death was Forth Bridge, as the Duke of Edinburgh, and the Queen's is London Bridge. And apparently code for when she actually died was "London Bridge is down" which is actually kind of chilling.


Morning all. How's everyone? What was all the drama on your work chat Beckie?

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 08:08 AM


I heard about the 'london bridge has fallen' thing too.
It is quite chilling. It sounds like some sort of code from a disaster movie :ermm:
But i have been watching far too many disaster movie lately so that may be why

The drama was a few people asking if one of the managers had signed them out (because the time sheet was lost) and then someone posted a load of laughing gifs.
And because the people that asked about the time sheet are the 'older' group, they took offence and started ripping into her. Big boss had to step in, messages got deleted.
Not top level drama, but entertaining nonetheless.

nonperson 14-09-2022 08:12 AM

Oh it's always entertaining when the bosses have to step in and restore order! And always more entertaining when it happens on a group chat. Like, "delete the messages, this never happened!"

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 08:32 AM


It did keep me entertained for a bit!
No doubt the older ones will be bitching about it to each other at work today!
Big boss did try to be diplomatic but said it was 'banter'. But the 'older-younger' people divide is very obvious!
I'm kind of in the middle of the older and younger. Which is good because I'm not affected by the divide and get on with both groups!
But this just means i hear a lot of the bitching from both sides about the other!

nonperson 14-09-2022 09:46 AM

It's not nice being stuck in the middle like that sometimes.

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 10:02 AM

I try not to get involved too much.
Some of the time i can see why the older ones get annoyed because a couple of the younger ones just kind of turn up and do nothing. Which is frustrating.
But i guess you're always going to get that in any workplace, regardless of age!
It's fine. We all mostly get on!

tamobhuuta 14-09-2022 10:17 AM

Morning guys

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 10:19 AM

Morning tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 14-09-2022 10:25 AM

I'm ok. I've got laundry to put away later and I'm hoping I'll have concentration to read because I didn't yesterday. What are you up to?

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 10:36 AM

I'm not doing much really!

Suddenly got the urge to apply for CalTech. Which is ridiculous because although i like science, i am not particularly good at it! I also can't afford food, let alone a ticket to california XD
My brain is weird

tamobhuuta 14-09-2022 11:04 AM

Weird just about describes it :p

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 11:09 AM

Haha! :p

I would like to be good at science. But i can't deal with the maths part!

not_so_insig 14-09-2022 11:13 AM

Morning all.

tamobhuuta 14-09-2022 11:16 AM

Science is boring.

Hi insig, how are you?

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 11:27 AM

Nooo science is the opposite of boring!
But each to their own i guess!

tamobhuuta 14-09-2022 11:39 AM

Maybe I think it's boring because I only did GCSE and all GCSEs are boring.

not_so_insig 14-09-2022 11:41 AM

I feel a bit ill but I have been since Sunday tamobhuuta. But am getting better each day. Thanks for asking though.

The Worst Witch 14-09-2022 11:45 AM

Scotland’s national animal is a unicorn, yes. I found it really nice that the journey would only normally take 2 hours but it took 5 because they were going so slowly for people to pay their respects. When we were driving home from Dundee they were already sitting waiting at about 11.30, and she wasn’t due to pass through until 2.

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 11:48 AM

People are apparently already queuing up in London for whatever it is that's happening (not the funeral, i know that's happening!) But there's something on that isn't the funeral

tamobhuuta 14-09-2022 11:55 AM

I think she's lieing in state.

tamobhuuta 14-09-2022 11:55 AM


Cacoethes 14-09-2022 11:59 AM

Yes that's it!
And i think it's lying?
But now I'm doubting myself!

not_so_insig 14-09-2022 12:14 PM

I think it's lying too.

Iamcatbug 14-09-2022 12:57 PM

Yeah it’s lying in state, from 5pm today.

I went to my local cathedral today to leave some condolence and look at the flowers. It feels surreal.

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 01:55 PM

That's nice Cat

It certainly is quite the event

tamobhuuta 14-09-2022 03:33 PM

I kept an eye on the coffin making its way to the resting place. I would have been so nervous taking part in that!

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 03:34 PM

Yes me too!

one_step_closer 14-09-2022 05:01 PM

Evening everyone. So much going on right now.

Hey NP

How are you doing?

nonperson 14-09-2022 08:19 PM

I'm pooped. But went to a place called Minions this afternoon so that's amusing. How're you?

Zurg 14-09-2022 08:25 PM

Woah???!!? A place called Minions??? Oh boy, did you see any???!! :D
I really want some of my favourite animated films to be real!!

The Worst Witch 14-09-2022 08:26 PM

Not too bad thanks. Ooo, Minions! I also want to go :P

nonperson 14-09-2022 08:29 PM

No I didn't see any real minions. Just lots very cool rocks. It was a beautiful place.

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 09:14 PM

That sounds awesome np!
Sounds like you enjoyed yourself :)

nonperson 14-09-2022 09:16 PM

It was awesome and I really did enjoy it. I feel like I climbed Everest or something heh.

Cacoethes 14-09-2022 09:29 PM

Sounds like a successful day!

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 07:02 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 15-09-2022 10:37 AM

Morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 10:52 AM

I'm ok thanks.

tamobhuuta 15-09-2022 11:02 AM

On edge because I'm waiting to hear from CMHT. But basically OK. Are you up to much?

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 11:04 AM

Not really. Went to the pharmacy, asda and library this morning. And put meds in dosset box.
Don't really have much else to do until taekwando tonight.

tamobhuuta 15-09-2022 11:09 AM

A busy morning then. What would you like to do now?

Cacoethes 15-09-2022 11:26 AM

Kind of!
I'm watching the capture on iplayer.

I've just read that the queue to see the queen is 3.5 miles long!!! That's some dedication right there from those people!

tamobhuuta 15-09-2022 11:30 AM

I heard that too, I think they're mad!
