Magnesium? I didn't know that! I just gotta find out what has that in it and a lot of my problems would be solved xD

I'm properly fed up with all the sport on recently. Why can't the BBC just make a special channel for that stuff so we don't have to suffer, there's nothing good on tv. I'm watching avatar on DVD, that's wasting a bit of time.

not_so_insig 05-08-2017 07:08 PM

Yeah like there's absolutely nothing on because of ****ing athletics. I mean it's on every single day next week. I don't mind sport it's when they don't put on your usual programmes I object to. Why can't they put it on the red button?

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 07:10 PM

I should probably get some multi vitamins again!

Sooo much sports crap!!
Im just watching films

not_so_insig 05-08-2017 07:14 PM

I am finishing binge watching Neighbours. I am going to be watching A Street Cat Called Bob later. I fancy watching The Railway Children but I don't have the dvd with me. My mum fancies Seabiscuit but my copy is a Region 1 dvd which isn't compatible with their dvd player.

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 07:15 PM

I know!! I don't pay the tv licence for sports, I pay it for good programs I wanna watch. You're right dawn, it should be on the red button!

Multivitamins sounds good, I didn't think of that!

I'm watching films too. Looks like I'll be doing that all next week, aside from EastEnders of course :P

not_so_insig 05-08-2017 07:18 PM

Ooo my Facebook has come up with memories today. According to my phone I have memories with Mike.

Buttons. 05-08-2017 07:20 PM

Films seem to be saving us all from this athletics induced hell.

Eska 05-08-2017 07:23 PM

Hello everyone :)

It's even on next week. I guess that I will have to find another dvd that both my mum and I want to watch. I don't think my mum wants to watch The Railway Children.

Hi Eska

Never really been big on cookie dough. Maybe try and think what's in it that your body might be craving.

Brilliant. I love writing poetry to combine with art.

Sketchy 05-08-2017 07:28 PM

I'm back home now. Deciding what to watch instead of casualty. Thank goodness for Netflix.

Eska 05-08-2017 07:28 PM

I... actually quite like watching athletics? *hides*

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 07:29 PM

I'm fairly new to Facebook so I've never had the memories thing, but I wouldn't have many memories for it to tell me anyway tbh lol

Hello eska!

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 07:34 PM

Hi eska! Haven't seen you around for a bit!

Sketchy 05-08-2017 07:36 PM

Don't worry Eska, we'll forgive you. :)

I tried Netflix but I have a usage limit so I would be wary of going over it. I have amazon prime but never use the video part as I can never find anything I like on it. I tend to prefer dvds as I prefer having something physical in my hands. That's why I have a record player.

Sketchy 05-08-2017 07:39 PM

I like dvds too Dawn. By the way, I added to my happy box. I just need to put together one for my sister. I'm doing the drawings for her to colour this evening.

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 07:51 PM

Oh that's a really good idea Lorraine!! Colouring is fun and calming

Sketchy 05-08-2017 07:52 PM

I designed a colouring book over a year ago for my sister. This time I'm making her postcards to colour in. She loves doing that.

Buttons. 05-08-2017 07:56 PM

Writing and art combined sounds great Lorraine. Also glad you are adding to your happy box :) But as for forgiving athletics-lovers. Speak for yourself ;P

See I would prefer DVDs if I didn't seem to have a talent for scratching them.

I love the railway children. Along with Secret Garden, Little Women, Anne of Green Gables and A little princess to a degree (though that film can piss me off with it's inaccuracy to the book).

Buttons. 05-08-2017 07:57 PM

Your sister sounds v lucky Lorraine!

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 07:57 PM

I used to love the railway children and secret garden as a kid. Had them on video!

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 08:01 PM

I've never seen either of those things.

Buttons. 05-08-2017 08:07 PM

^ You're missing out!

I miss videos!!

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 08:09 PM

Ah the good old vhs. The moments when the tape got twisted. The times I spent waiting for it to rewind. The pause screen, the mess it was. Good times.

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 08:11 PM

Ah yes. Those were the days!!

Sketchy 05-08-2017 08:12 PM

That takes me back. It was a simpler time.

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 08:13 PM

It was indeed!

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 08:18 PM

Back when we had tapes instead of mp3 files. Sitting by the radio waiting for the song I wanted to come on so I could record it. I was one heck of a pirate back then xD

Sketchy 05-08-2017 08:23 PM

Kids today don't know how lucky they are!

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 08:24 PM

Omg i forgot all about the tape recording thing! XD

Kids these days don't know how good they have it. With their YouTube and their iTunes!!

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 08:26 PM

Yeah, youngsters with their mobile phones. Back in my day the phone was connected to the wall. Ain't no internet on it or camera either
Speaking of cameras, back in my day I had to wait like a week to get my pictures back from Bonus Print to see if I got good pictures or not!

Buttons. 05-08-2017 08:26 PM

We are all old :(

I remember the tape thing too! One redeeming part of videos was if you stopped it it stayed where it was though so you could start at the correct point instead of having to scene skip like on DVD. I liked how everyone in the family had their own video tapes as well. Mine was mostly x-men :P

Buttons. 05-08-2017 08:26 PM

Remember dial up internet? That awful noise!

Buttons. 05-08-2017 08:28 PM

And the miracle that was the walkman <3 transformed long car journeys!

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 08:29 PM

My god we're all so old!

I loved my walkman!
I remember when i had a cd one. You had to stay perfectly still so it wouldn't skip!

Sketchy 05-08-2017 08:29 PM

We sound like a bunch of grannies.

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 08:34 PM

We actually do!! XD

Lol I remember that!!! car went over a bump and you were like NOOOOOOOO

We should rename this the golden oldies thread :P

Shy_Bambi 05-08-2017 08:38 PM

Oh my goodness I loved my walkman. It was one where you didn't have to take the tape out to turn it around. It had a radio on it too!

And I had a portable cd player too, the skipping was unbelievable lol!!

Good times!! Good, simple times.

Oh and the old gameboy. Back then it didn't have a light on it, so you couldn't play it at night!

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 08:46 PM

The struggle of playing the gameboy on long car journeys when it was dark!!
Mum wouldn't let us get those book light things they made for gameboys!

I googled a few films today to see who the actors were.
In the old days, i would just be sitting here going 'omg i know i know them from somewhere!!!' And it would drive me insane!

Sketchy 05-08-2017 08:56 PM

It is nice to have google at our fingertips.

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 09:05 PM

It really is!

Settles many family arguments too! Lol!

Sketchy 05-08-2017 09:06 PM

Haha that's true. And it means you get to say 'see I told you!'

Buttons. 05-08-2017 09:07 PM

Ha ha google is win. Do you remember Ask jeeves? Fail.

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 09:11 PM

Exactly Lorraine!

Omg ask jeeves!! XD

Sketchy 05-08-2017 09:11 PM

Yeh I remember that.

Sob! Casualty should be on just now! I'm still deciding what to watch. I've added a few things to my watch list so I need to choose something. Maybe pride and prejudice.

Cacoethes 05-08-2017 09:15 PM

*mourns for casualty*

Im gonna go to bed I think.
And the ridiculous tiredness continues!
Night night all
