He is in power armour and is genetically modified super soldier so kind of cheating!

Cacoethes 21-07-2023 09:03 PM

That does sound like he'd have a definite advantage!

long road 21-07-2023 09:46 PM

He would probably have to be in a class with only other genetically engineered people and not be alowe dto fight in power armour!

The villain is waking up an army of alien robots soldiers, which is very bad. Hopefully if we defeat him they might deactivate.

Cacoethes 21-07-2023 10:06 PM

Well, tournaments are already separated by weight, so having a separate class for those who are genetically engineered only seems fair!

Good luck!

long road 21-07-2023 10:13 PM

Good sportsmanship and a level playing field is important!

Thank you I think we may need it!

Lol, classic assumption.

Good luck in your roleplay Jen!

I must sleep now, for I think I forgot my medication last night so chilling with the brain zaps rn.

long road 21-07-2023 10:30 PM

Brain zaps bad. Hope remembering your meds tonight sees them off. Rest well!

Cacoethes 22-07-2023 06:23 AM

Morning guys!

Pi.R^2 22-07-2023 08:40 AM

Morning! How are you?

long road 22-07-2023 08:52 AM


Do you still have brain zaps Jenna or have they gone away?

Cacoethes 22-07-2023 09:03 AM

Morning guys!

I'm ok thanks jenna!
Though the weather is pretty grim

How are you both?

tamobhuuta 22-07-2023 10:09 AM

Morning guys.

Pi, what's brain zaps?

not_so_insig 22-07-2023 10:51 AM

Morning all.

tamobhuuta 22-07-2023 11:04 AM

Hi insig, how are you?

Cacoethes 22-07-2023 11:27 AM

Hey guys

Tamo, it basically feels like your brain is getting a small electric shock
Common withdrawal effect of some medications
I had it with venlafaxine.
And also as a regular side effect with keppra. That sucked.

one_step_closer 22-07-2023 11:32 AM

Morning everyone. Wishing you all a good day.

Brain zaps are horrible but the thing I hated most about coming off Venlafaxine was the nightmares.

It was drizzling enough for me to have to wear a rain jacket and put my hood up when I was out but it's stopped now and is a tiny bit sunny. I might get out and cut back some more bushes/trees at some point. On that note I miss NP.

What are you all getting up to today?

When I was out I saw my neighbours that I don't know too well in their car and the guy raised his hand and I waved but then a car passed and he was probably just thanking them for letting him past. So embarrassing! Have to avoid them now and never come across them in their car again!

tamobhuuta 22-07-2023 11:41 AM

Lol awks osc!

I've never had brain zaps, they sound horrible.

The weather's not great here but luckily I don't need to go out. And my t-shirts have arrived :)

one_step_closer 22-07-2023 11:43 AM

Are you wearing one of your new t-shirts, Tamo?

People who are on UC, do you get it once or twice a month? My UC journal is asking me to choose but I don't know how to make the decision.

tamobhuuta 22-07-2023 12:22 PM

No, I'm wearing an old one.

I'm not on UC but I get one benefit monthly and the other twice a month. Not by choice but it's ok for me. Sorry, not much help!

Cacoethes 22-07-2023 12:23 PM

Weather is dreadful here.
I'm hiding in Costa, waiting for jas to be dropped off!

I get mine monthly Lindsay.
Can be hard to budget but I'm awful with money.
It is helpful in that i can pay my rent then and there, rather than having to save from 2 separate UC payments.

Pi.R^2 22-07-2023 12:45 PM

Lots of rain here too and I’m about to be outside!

Lol osc, that neighbour waving thing is exactly the kind of thing I’d pretend to be dead over, even though realistically the other person almost certainly won’t have noticed and/or cared!!!

Pi.R^2 22-07-2023 12:46 PM

Hope you have a nice time with Jas Beckie!

not_so_insig 22-07-2023 01:47 PM

It depends on how good you are at budgeting Lindsay. If you suck then I would go for fortnightly payments. If you are generally good then I would go for monthly. You can also request that your rent gets paid directly to your landlord if that helps.

one_step_closer 22-07-2023 02:21 PM

I think I used to get my ESA twice a month so opted for that. They are paying some of my rent direct to my landlord.

I did some more tree/bush chopping and it didn't rain on me.

I hope you and Jas have a nice day, Beckie.

Hope you don't get soaked, Jenna.

Cacoethes 22-07-2023 03:35 PM

It is pouring down.
I'm waiting for bus home now.
The potentially homeless drunks have yet again taken over this side of the bus station.
They are being incredibly loud. And smoking :plain:

We had a nice time despite the rain!

one_step_closer 22-07-2023 05:42 PM

I would hate that, Beckie.

Did you get home dry enough?

long road 22-07-2023 07:40 PM

Stuck in bed again today. Feeling a bit fed up.
Last night was fun but I didn't stop quite early enough and got overtired so had a seizure when I got to bed that lasted a long time.

I am less chill with this being how things are today

tamobhuuta 22-07-2023 07:48 PM

Sorry things are tough LR.

long road 22-07-2023 08:08 PM

Thanks Tamo. Hope things are ok with you

tamobhuuta 22-07-2023 08:36 PM

Not great but I'll be OK.

Cacoethes 22-07-2023 10:30 PM

Hey guys!
This is late so hopefully everyone is in bed!
So hope you all sleep well!

not_so_insig 22-07-2023 10:41 PM

I am awake

long road 23-07-2023 03:53 AM

I wish I was asleep

Cacoethes 23-07-2023 06:39 AM

Oh no!
Hope you guys got to sleep eventually!

I wore my oodie all night because i was freezing!
I've never done that! Even in winter! Always get too hot and take it off in the middle of the night. But was especially cold for some reason!

tamobhuuta 23-07-2023 10:16 AM

I hope everyone got some sleep.

Hi Cacoethes, how are you? Are you warm now?

not_so_insig 23-07-2023 10:59 AM

Morning all. It was a cold night last night. I was freezing during Casualty.

tamobhuuta 23-07-2023 11:04 AM

Ooo Casualty! (Sorry you were cold)

not_so_insig 23-07-2023 11:14 AM

What does your signature mean tamobhuuta?

tamobhuuta 23-07-2023 11:19 AM

Nothing! It's a catch phrase from the goon show (a 50s radio comedy)

Cacoethes 23-07-2023 11:32 AM

Morning guys!

I was warm, because i cleaned out the piggos and cleaned the house, but I'm cold again now XD
Going to the mill with L and her son later
Then put washing away and shower later.

What's everyone else up to?

one_step_closer 23-07-2023 11:33 AM

Hi everyone, I hope you all have a good day.

I hope you eventually managed some good sleep, Jen.

I think I was hot last night.

What is everyone getting up to today?

I changed my bedding and washed my hair then wanted to go to Tesco so had to blow dry my hair a bit but I couldn't be bothered waiting for it all to be dry so I just went out. I knew my hair would be more of a mess when I got home because of this and it was and I made up a cool song called I Predict A Riot (Of My Hair). Hoovered. My friend who lives in another village says it's pouring there but it's not raining here just windy.

one_step_closer 23-07-2023 11:34 AM

Ninja, Beckie. I hope you have a nice day. Have you met L's son before? I also forgot to ask you what L's parrot is called which is rude of me.

Cacoethes 23-07-2023 11:42 AM

You've been productive lindsay!
Well done!

I've met him briefly, when she picked me up from a&e and he was in the back of the car. Very sweet. He's autistic and non verbal, so doesn't really communicate, but he is very expressive.
The parrots name is Ozzy!

one_step_closer 23-07-2023 11:44 AM

Thank you.

Ozzy is such a cool name for a parrot. I hope you all have fun today.

not_so_insig 23-07-2023 12:11 PM

Is it the same mill as I got a postcard from Beckie? If it's in your home town then it's the same one.

Cacoethes 23-07-2023 12:19 PM

Thanks lindsay!

Yep, that's the one Dawn!
I think it's the only mill in the area tbh.
At least the only famous one!
It has a cafe/restaurant, beautiful gardens and the river runs through it.
And a big field and enclosed woods for kids to play in
And a cool gift shop selling local stuff

not_so_insig 23-07-2023 12:46 PM

Sounds good Beckie.

Cacoethes 23-07-2023 01:03 PM

Thanks :)

Have you got anything plannedd for today dawn?

not_so_insig 23-07-2023 01:18 PM

No i am having a relaxing day. Only have to wash my hair at some point.

long road 23-07-2023 01:38 PM


I did sleep eventually. Not very restful sleep though. Had some bizarre nightmares.

Trying to take it easy again today but my free trial on the family history website runs out tomorrow so want to try and get some more use out of it. And today was meant to be a date day with partner. We were going to watch a movie and snuggle, but will have to wait and see as I have no energy right now.
