I've never watched Mrs Doubtfire, am I missing out?

nonperson 23-12-2022 08:40 PM


Argh, I can't seem to post it without making it a link not an image. That bit was just on anyway =P

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 08:45 PM

Yes you are tamo!

Ah that's annoying!
I do the mrs doubtfire 'heellooo" basically every time i go into work. Lol.

tamobhuuta 23-12-2022 08:52 PM

Is it available on netflix or similar?

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 08:59 PM

Just googled and apparently it's on disney+

Ugghh it always annoys me when they say 'what part of England are you from' when mrs doubtfires accent is clearly meant to be Scottish!

tamobhuuta 23-12-2022 09:04 PM

Thanks Cacoethes :) that's tomorrow's film sorted!

Silly Americans.

nonperson 23-12-2022 09:05 PM

I was thinking that too! When Mrs Sellner is in the apartment and Mrs Doubtfire's own brother keeps saying she's English! Gah!

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 09:07 PM

You'll have to let us know what you think tamo!

Like it would have taken maybe 2 seconds of research! But i guess google wasn't really a thing back then.

Yaaay that gif never gets old!

nonperson 23-12-2022 09:09 PM

This is how I'm going to enter this thread from now on:

Or maybe everywhere IRL for that matter.

Zurg 23-12-2022 09:16 PM

But then you Will have to carry a broom everywhere, NP….

nonperson 23-12-2022 09:16 PM

I would keep posting GIFs but don't want to spoil the film for you, Tamo =P

nonperson 23-12-2022 09:17 PM

Small price to pay, Zurg.

not_so_insig 23-12-2022 09:18 PM

Americans think that Wales is part of England so I imagine that they think the same about Scotland.

nonperson 23-12-2022 09:19 PM

The point is they think the whole of the UK is "England".

not_so_insig 23-12-2022 09:21 PM

I once had a letter from America which said England on it despite me writing United Kingdom in my address. I live in Wales. It was a miracle that it arrived.

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 09:26 PM

You should DEFINITELY enter everywhere like that np!

One of the Americans on one of the tours in Amsterdam said she got death threats from a man from Wales when they asked if he was 'a Brit'.
Slight overreaction imo!

nonperson 23-12-2022 09:29 PM

See, it's ok that way round - the American got it right in that case! Silly oversensitive Welsh person.

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 09:37 PM

That's what I thought!
I have vivid memories of my step dad's uncle (Welsh) telling us stories about the English 'coming to steal all the apples off our trees'
Lol. I know it's pretty well known that everyone hates the English. Historically, we do kinda suck tbh

not_so_insig 23-12-2022 09:37 PM

Speaking as a Welsh person we are not all like that.

nonperson 23-12-2022 09:42 PM

And the English are not all apple stealing thieving bastards.

Just stereotypes innit.

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 09:43 PM

I know.
None of my Welsh family are like that. My uncle used to say it in a jokey way.
He also used to make us 'red kite soup'. Which i now know was chicken, not an actual red kite XD
Oh and the very dangerous Gower Gorilla!

Pi.R^2 23-12-2022 10:54 PM

At least the damn Welsh and Scottish are allowed to have referenda if you want to rage quit the UK. I'm Northern Irish and we don't know how to behave so we're not allowed :P

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 10:58 PM

I wish I could rage quit the UK tbh.
I want my own country! Or just to move to Amsterdam.

I'm watching Christmas episodes of Outnumbered on W!

Pi.R^2 23-12-2022 11:03 PM

Outnumbered!!! Heart eye emojis

Pi.R^2 23-12-2022 11:03 PM

Did you know me and Lana once went to the house where Outnumbered is filmed?

tamobhuuta 23-12-2022 11:06 PM

That's really cool!

Pi.R^2 23-12-2022 11:14 PM

ikr! How are you this evening tamo?

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 11:17 PM

Did you??
I love outnumbered

Pippin has fallen asleep with his head in the food bowl...feels.

Pi.R^2 23-12-2022 11:29 PM

Aww, Pippin!

And yes, it's not like... advertised as a place you can go to visit, we just stalked the web and maps to find where it was filmed and then brought my Outnumbered DVDs and rocked up to the residential street and found the house and sneakily posed outside it, holding up the DVDs! Outnumbered is such an awesome feelgood show.

Cacoethes 23-12-2022 11:37 PM

Fair enough!
I admire the determination!
That house reminds me a lot of our old family house in North london. Very similar!
It is an awesome show! I love karen. She's hilarious

Cacoethes 24-12-2022 09:27 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 24-12-2022 10:32 AM

Morning Cacoethes. How are you?

Zurg 24-12-2022 10:40 AM

Morning Beckie and Tamo :)
And merry Christmas!!!
How are you both??

Cacoethes 24-12-2022 10:41 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Work today. Just spot cleaned the boys also. I know I'll be too tired to do it after work!

How are you?

Ninja post zurg!
Morning! And merry Christmas eve!

Zurg 24-12-2022 10:46 AM

I have a kitchen sink full of dirty dishes i need to do :( then feed the beasts, wrap the last present that i have purposefully ignored until now (i am terrible at wrapping so i deffo don't enjoy that!!) and get the stuff together and waddle out to find a bus.
Then do the whole Christmas celebration thingy and come back tonight.

I hope work Will be okay Beckie. Does it get busy on xmas eve???

nonperson 24-12-2022 10:53 AM

What do you do tomorrow if you do all your celebrating today, Zurg?

I'm psyching myself up to go clean the car... =/

Cacoethes 24-12-2022 10:56 AM

Oh nooo. That's a lot!
I'm terrible at wrapping too.
Last year, my sister in law asked jasmine if she had wrapped a present. It was actually me....:ermm:

It was standing room only in the bar last xmas eve! And will probably be full in the restaurant also. *skull emoji*

Good luck with the car cleaning np!

nonperson 24-12-2022 11:04 AM

I actually quite like wrapping and am quite good at it :blush:

How long is your shift today, Beckie?

Thanks. I'm mostly doing it as I'll be too ashamed to turn up at home tomorrow with a car that is meant to be white but is more brown and green...

Cacoethes 24-12-2022 11:14 AM

Mine was even worse this year with my impaired thumb!

Only 6 hours. Not too bad!

Fair enough!
My step dad's car currently looks grey. It's meant to be white.

nonperson 24-12-2022 11:35 AM

Thumbs are very important for wrapping! You need every finger you can get =P

Does the pub close early on Christmas Eve?

I'm awful at keeping mine clean at the best of times (hence the green) and then all the snow and salt and general winter grub has made it worse. I'll need to jet wash it first before even starting on the proper washing. Gah!

Zurg 24-12-2022 11:41 AM

Ooh NP, do you have any handy tips for those of us who are less blessed in the present wrapping skills??? :D

In Denmark you celebrate Christmas on Christmas eve. The following day, a lot of people usually visit the relatives that they didn't spend xmas eve with. Basically you just visit people and sit on your arse and eat, lol.
We've never done anything on the 25th. Which is fine with me!!! I might go back to my mum's place to have dinner with her and my brother.

Boo to a full bar and restaurant on xmas eve!!!! I hope the customers Will be merry and respectful, Beckie!!!

Car washing doesn't Sound very fun although there is a huge element of satisfaction in cleaning something very dirty so you can witness the amazing progress :D

Cacoethes 24-12-2022 11:47 AM

Nope we don't close early on Christmas eve.

Ugh, sounds grim np!
Will be nice when it's done though!

Thanks! I haven't had any problems with customers yet. So hopefully it will be ok!
Well, apart from the ones who complain about prices. Which i have literally no control over....

Pi.R^2 24-12-2022 12:51 PM

Zurg, that's interesting that the main celebrations are on Christmas Eve! Happy Christmas to you! Hope you have a nice day :)

np, can't you just go to a car wash... (I feel like I will be judged for this suggestion :P)

Beckie, hope your day at work goes OK! Do you get extra pay on Christmas Eve?

tamobhuuta 24-12-2022 01:35 PM

Merry Christmas Zurg.

I've seen my mum and big sister, had a shower, next activity is watching Mrs Doubtfire.

nonperson 24-12-2022 01:40 PM

Yay, Tamo =D

Jenna - no judgement at all. It would be a better idea but as I have never used a car wash before it is a Big Scary Unknown so I'll just keep doing it myself for now.

Cacoethes 24-12-2022 03:31 PM

No extra pay on Xmas eve sadly!
It is busy. Very busy!

one_step_closer 24-12-2022 03:44 PM

Merry Christmas, Kat.

I hope you enjoy Mrs Doubtfire, Tamo. It is really good.

I hope work isn't too bad, Beckie.

one_step_closer 24-12-2022 05:31 PM

It's battering down with rain here.

tamobhuuta 24-12-2022 05:40 PM

Christmas rain!
I watched Mrs Doubtfire, I didn't really like it. It was slightly amusing in parts but it didn't make me laugh.
