I am outta ideas.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 01:41 PM

Lol thanks for the ideas anyway! I think my glasses are too loose so that may be why. Need to get the arms tightened up I think!

nonperson 02-08-2020 01:44 PM


Picnic was nice. I was forced to run around with a football by a 3 year old though, until she had a tantrum about something else >.>

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 02:04 PM

Glad the picnic was nice np!
Haha! That's 3 year olds for you!

nonperson 02-08-2020 02:09 PM

Yup. =)

Then she was like "why are you taking off your jumper?" and I was like "because you made me run around!"

It was kinda sad though because, although she understands social distancing really well, the 16 month old doesn't and he kept wanting to show me things and give me things and I had to keep backing away and try and make a game of it, instead of making him think I was ignoring him. =(

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 02:11 PM


Awww bless. I hope he wasn't too upset by it

nonperson 02-08-2020 02:21 PM

He was alright, but a bit confused. I just had to keep throwing a ball and a stick for him like he was a dog!

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 02:23 PM

Haha! I'm sure he enjoyed it!

Eeep brain shock!
That was weird!

nonperson 02-08-2020 02:34 PM

Eep. o.o

Everything ok?

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 02:40 PM

Yeah I'm fine!
Just been a bit speedy and not sleeping much for the last few days and I think it's getting to my brain!

nonperson 02-08-2020 02:48 PM

Ah good. Lack of sleep does catch up eventually.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 02:50 PM

It does indeed!
I'm limiting my caffeine intake but it doesn't seem to be helping much!

nonperson 02-08-2020 02:54 PM

What about your general water intake? That seems to affect everything if you don't drink enough.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 03:00 PM

I don't drink water lol
It makes me feel sick and it tastes weird!
So it's either coffee, tea, caffeine free diet coke or squash!

nonperson 02-08-2020 03:07 PM

Squash counts as water. =P

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 03:17 PM

Yay!!! :-D
In that case I do drink water :p

nonperson 02-08-2020 03:21 PM

Haha! But do you drink ENOUGH water? That's what I'm getting at, considering it's bloody boiling lately and you're not feeling 100%.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 03:27 PM

Probably not!
But I do drink enough coke :p

not_so_insig 02-08-2020 03:42 PM

I drink lots of lemonade as I don't like water either.

nonperson 02-08-2020 03:47 PM

More than enough coke, I think, Beckie. ;-)

I drink water at home and squash at work.

Fizzy drinks are too fizzy for me.

I weirdly like the taste of water... it's all pure and clean and light and nothing.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 03:49 PM

Definitely more than enough!! :tongue2:

Water just tastes like your mouth

nonperson 02-08-2020 03:50 PM

It's not so much the taste, it's more the feeling of it. I can't describe it. =/

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 03:51 PM

I can kind of get what you mean!
Kind of!

not_so_insig 02-08-2020 03:51 PM

Water tastes too plain for my liking.

nonperson 02-08-2020 03:55 PM

I like plain.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:06 PM

I can cope with flavoured water!
And sparkling water!
Maybe I'm just weird

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:07 PM

Sparkling water tastes weird! But I like it.

We're all weird. =)

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:12 PM

That is very true! :tongue2:

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:21 PM

Is anyone watching the return of the Nasa/SpaceX astronauts later?

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:21 PM

Nope! What time is it on?

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:37 PM

Nasa TV on Youtube is on all the time. I think touchdown is about 7:30pm this evening.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:38 PM

I can't get YouTube on the TV at the moment because my fire stick has broken :(
But I could watch it on my phone!

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:40 PM

That's annoying. I think it's only live on youtube unfortunately.

Should be exciting to watch though.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:48 PM

That's a shame

I accidentally crashed the spacecraft upon landing when doing the space simulator at space camp!
I messed up the sequence for the landing thing
In my defence, there were a hell of a lot of buttons!!!

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:50 PM

Good job you're not in control now then, hmm? =P

There was a SpaceX docking simulator online when they launched. I don't think I ended up anywhere near the space station when I tried it! And then I lost patience.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:53 PM

It's a very good job!
this simulator was the one that real astronauts use
! It was very exciting!

Haha! Fair enough!

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:55 PM

I think this one had the same controls that the astronauts use too. Very disappointed that I failed. =/

I'm still so jealous of your space camp!

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:00 PM

Here you go:


Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:02 PM

We also did the next day where the teams switched over and I was in ground control. I didn't mess that one up :p

Yay thank you!

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:09 PM

Ground control sounds fun. =P

I just failed! Got much closer than I did before though.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:12 PM

It was! Got the headset and everything! Not as fun as crashing a spacecraft though :tongue2:

I failed. Got so close a few times but then it all got out of control!

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:14 PM

Hah, yeah crashing is more fun. =P

I think I did the same. Was doing alright and then decided to make some minor corrections which turned into major mistakes.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:20 PM

It is! :tongue2:

I just ended up spinning around! Lol!

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:27 PM

Who said the ISS had to be the destination, hmm? XD

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:27 PM

Surely random space is just as good!!!

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:30 PM

Yep, I thought the whole mission statement was based on exploring the unknown. =)

Or maybe I'm thinking of Star Trek...

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:35 PM

Star trek, real life, who even knows anymore.
This is 2020, anything could happen!!!

nonperson 02-08-2020 06:49 PM

You are not wrong there.

I wish there was more Star Trek stuff happening instead of Armageddon stuff. =/

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 07:02 PM

I never got into star trek but you are right! Anything better than this sh*t going on right now!

nonperson 02-08-2020 07:08 PM

Yup. =/

I mean there's a lot of death and disaster and near misses in Star Trek but at least it's exciting and diverse and unpredictable and a bigger picture than most people can imagine.
