Cacoethes 30-12-2022 10:05 PM

I'm not a huge fan of fireworks either tbh.
I'm hoping the boys will be ok. They're pretty chill.
I have ordered another of the favourite hide though!
Only one goes in the current one at a time and don't really use the others.

Thank you!
If it's not fabulous, I'll just drink until it is XD

Cacoethes 31-12-2022 09:46 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 31-12-2022 10:16 AM

Morning Beckie :)
How are you??

I feel exceptionally tired for someone who is expected to stay awake until midnight XD

Cacoethes 31-12-2022 10:24 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Excited about tonight!

Do you have time for a nap today?

tamobhuuta 31-12-2022 10:49 AM

Hello Cacoethes and Zurg. I'm tired too. I thought Morning Prayer would perk me up but it hasn't.

Cacoethes 31-12-2022 10:53 AM

Hopefully you'll wake up a bit as the day goes on!

Have you got any visits planned for today?

Zurg 31-12-2022 11:08 AM

I hope the party Will be awesome!!!

Hope the day Will improve for you Tamo. Coffee is always nice no matter if it works its magic or not :)

Sadly, no time for napping today. My mum Will be here in an hour to Pick me and Findus up. We are having our new years' eve at her place. Quite remarkable how much stuff you need to bring along for a bunny ;)
It feels like i am about to travel abroad with a baby….!!! XD

Cacoethes 31-12-2022 11:12 AM

I hope you have a nice time!

Haha! They are babies really ;)
I've just had cuddles with my boys after spot cleaning the cage!

tamobhuuta 31-12-2022 02:15 PM

I had a nice time with my mum. She brought me coffee which woke me up, I'm dressed now! She might bring me chips from the chippie later.

In other news I saw a tonne of ants in my room so a couple of the nurses helped me kill them and I've thrown out all my open foods.

one_step_closer 31-12-2022 03:44 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope you have a nice time, Kat. And Findus too. I hope you don't feel mega tired though.

I hope you enjoy yourself tonight, Beckie.

Sounds like a nice visit, Tamo. But ants! I hope they're all away.

I will not be staying up for the bells. I'll do my usual going to bed but will probably still be awake at midnight and I'll hear the fireworks. I hope you all have a good NYE and 2023 is a good year for you.

Cacoethes 31-12-2022 04:20 PM

That's good tamo!

One of the wards i was on had a HUGE ant problem! I couldn't even sleep in my room until they'd put powder down! And still got the odd few coming in after that.

Just waiting for bus home. Been in town with Jasmine. We went to wagamamas! Haven't been in about 6 years!

tamobhuuta 31-12-2022 04:26 PM

I've been to wagamamas! Once! It was ages ago, I don't even remember if I liked it! How was it?

Cacoethes 31-12-2022 04:27 PM

Really good thanks!
I got duck gyoza (dumplings) because i wasn't that hungry. Jasmine had chicken ramen! Looked amazing!

tamobhuuta 31-12-2022 04:28 PM

Sounds tastey.

Cacoethes 31-12-2022 04:35 PM

It was! :-D
Wagamamas is 'in' again now lol
The kids at work always talk about it
Funny how things go in and out of fashion
Remember when nandos was the best thing? Cheeky nandos anyone?! :p

tamobhuuta 31-12-2022 04:37 PM

I remember! But I never went. Not a good place for vegetarians, was it?

Cacoethes 31-12-2022 04:51 PM

I think they have more veggie options now, since being veggie/vegan is far more common these days!
But i haven't been in a while

one_step_closer 31-12-2022 05:51 PM

I've never been to Wagamamas and I've only been to Nandos once.

tamobhuuta 31-12-2022 05:53 PM

Did you enjoy Nando's?

one_step_closer 31-12-2022 05:54 PM

I can't remember, it was such a long time ago. I think my support worker at the time took me there when that was definitely not what we were supposed to be doing!

not_so_insig 31-12-2022 05:59 PM

I am the same as Lindsay regarding Nandos and Wagamama. I dont even know where my nearest Wagamama is. Probably Liverpool.

one_step_closer 31-12-2022 06:00 PM

Do you have a favourite place to go for a meal, Dawn?

not_so_insig 31-12-2022 06:04 PM

I like going to chiquitos. But only go once a year due to the fact there isn't one in my city.

one_step_closer 31-12-2022 06:06 PM

I've never heard of that place. Do you have any big brand type restaurants where you live?

Pi.R^2 31-12-2022 07:27 PM

woah woah I missed Wagamamas chat! *goes to catch up*

Pi.R^2 31-12-2022 07:34 PM

I love wagamamas, I'm glad the youth of today have good taste. We discussed this once before and I ended up researching what other countries have them!

Also tamo, nando's has had a vegetarian option for as long as I remember. Don't know about vegan *goes to research* Ooh, they have a vegan one now!

I have heard of chiquitos but never been, I assume it's Mexican and I don't really like mexican cuisine. Lindsay, I looked up how far your nearest Chiquitos was and only realised afterwards that that's probably a bit stalky, apologies!

not_so_insig 31-12-2022 07:38 PM

We have an Nandos, a Pizza hut and a Pizza Express in my city. We don't have a lot of restaurants mainly pubs.

Cacoethes 31-12-2022 10:27 PM

I don't think I'm gona make it til 12am lol

Cacoethes 01-01-2023 01:32 AM

Yoooo happy new year and shiz

Pi.R^2 01-01-2023 01:43 AM

Looks like you made it to midnight! Happy New Year!
Also your signature has gone o_O. What an unsettling start to 2023!

Cacoethes 01-01-2023 01:53 AM

Just aboit!
Im ****ed!
Idk bout sig

Cacoethes 01-01-2023 05:03 AM

Like i don't remember a lot
But i remember clarifying yhat I'm NOT a lesbian many many times
I think ar this point i may just be gay

Cacoethes 01-01-2023 10:30 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 01-01-2023 11:51 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 01-01-2023 12:12 PM

I'm ok thanks!
How are you?
Happy new year!

Pi.R^2 01-01-2023 12:54 PM

Morning! How are you this morning tamo?
Beckie, are you even slightly worse for wear this morning?

Zurg 01-01-2023 01:22 PM

Happy new year peeps!!!

I'm back home with a very tired bunny. So tired that he, in fact, couldn't find the strength to go from beneath the couch to his litter box and as such has just pooped where he is laying XD
Being cute is hard work!!!

I hope you all had a nice evening :)

Cacoethes 01-01-2023 01:28 PM

Nah I'm fine!
Not getting hangovers is my superpower :-D

Ahh findus!
There's a group on fb called 'bunnies are ars*holes' and i always think of you when i see a naughty bun post!

I had a good night!
Another night out tonight too! *skull emoji*

not_so_insig 01-01-2023 03:15 PM

Hello all.

one_step_closer 01-01-2023 03:43 PM

Afternoon everyone. I'm feeling very not new yearish just sad so I'm not saying anything about it on FB if I can but since you are all special to me I'll say Happy New Year and I hope this one is a good one for you.

Jenna, stalk me all you like! I probably wouldn't even notice if you stalked me in person!

I'm glad you enjoyed your night, Beckie. Aren't you too old to be going out again tonight though? :laugh:

Aww, poor Findus. How are you, Kat?

Hi Dawn and Tamo, how are you both?

Cacoethes 01-01-2023 03:49 PM

Sorry to hear that lindsay
I really hope this year will be more positive for you!

Yep I am FAR too old to be going out again
Especially as I have work tomorrow XD

one_step_closer 01-01-2023 03:50 PM

How on earth are you going to survive?! I hope you have a good time.

tamobhuuta 01-01-2023 03:51 PM

I was awake at 11pm but I think I was asleep by midnight because I didn't hear any fireworks.

I'm impressed by your lack of hangover Cacoethes. Last time I drank too much I slept it off.

My pulse this morning was 120! We took it again later and it was more normal. Also in my news, I've had a shower.

one_step_closer 01-01-2023 03:54 PM

I think I might have been asleep at midnight too or no one set of fireworks, one or the other.

I hope your pulse stays at a sensible rate. Were you extra anxious or something? How are you feeling after your shower?

Cacoethes 01-01-2023 04:05 PM

I will be surviving on caffeine and adrenaline XD

My pulse has been resting at 125 for most of today.
Bit random!

I didn't hear any fireworks! I think we were shouting along to auld lang syne, bugsy malone and dancing in the moonlight so loudly that we drowned out the fireworks XD

not_so_insig 01-01-2023 04:18 PM

I am ok thanks Lindsay. Better than yesterday mh wise. I didnt drink enough to warrant a hangover. I rarely get hangovers on current meds which is good :-)

tamobhuuta 01-01-2023 04:19 PM

I had just had a coffee, it might have been because of that. I'm quite tired after my shower.

Cacoethes 01-01-2023 04:35 PM

Yeah coffee can do that!

Zurg 01-01-2023 04:52 PM

I'm prepping dinner atm. I'm hungry and tired. I want to eat before i accidentally Fall asleep.
I didn't even party last night but being too old to not party'ing is now a thing, apparently….

Lindsay, i recommend a hot cocoa for the blues. It never solves any problems but it tastes good and makes them Seem less aggressive for a while. Xx

Cacoethes 01-01-2023 04:53 PM

What are you having?

Hot cocoa is awesome tbh
