hey Eska! ^^ how are you?

Eska 23-01-2020 07:34 PM

Hi np and Shira! I feel a bit off and low this evening. Generally things are good though.

nonperson 23-01-2020 07:35 PM

That's a shame about the lowness. Hopefully it won't last long. =/

Have you settled in ok at your new job now?

Shirayuki 23-01-2020 07:41 PM

how are you np?

hopefully the lowness goes away soon Eska

nonperson 23-01-2020 07:42 PM

I'm hungry so am cooking pasta.

Shirayuki 23-01-2020 07:42 PM

with what?

other than pesto ^^

Eska 23-01-2020 07:46 PM

Thanks.

I think so? I now have an allocated desk which is good. And the people I work with are fairly lovely and it's super interesting and I'm starting to get a feel for what needs doing (challenging because it's a role that didn't exist before, we're pretty much setting up stuff from scratch).

Shirayuki 23-01-2020 07:47 PM

oh cool! what do you do Eska?

Eska 23-01-2020 07:51 PM

Ninja posts both of you (apparently I'm very slow this evening)

Eska 23-01-2020 07:52 PM

I'm an administrator in a hospital.

nonperson 23-01-2020 07:54 PM

Sounds like it's going well, Eska. =)

Shira - no pesto this time... just lots of cheese!

Shirayuki 23-01-2020 07:56 PM

i love cheese!

nonperson 23-01-2020 08:09 PM

Cheese is almost as essential as air.

chinahorse 23-01-2020 08:11 PM

Cheese is amazing

Cacoethes 23-01-2020 08:12 PM

Cheese is life

nonperson 23-01-2020 08:17 PM

Shirayuki 23-01-2020 08:27 PM

tamobhuuta 23-01-2020 08:28 PM

We had home made pizza. I had pesto, basil, goats cheese and olives. All kinds of yum.

nonperson 23-01-2020 08:29 PM

All kinds of yum until you said olives! =P

Cacoethes 23-01-2020 08:32 PM

Shirayuki 23-01-2020 08:33 PM

one_step_closer 23-01-2020 08:34 PM

It's a no to olives from me.

Shirayuki 23-01-2020 08:35 PM

osc! how are you?

chinahorse 23-01-2020 08:38 PM

olives are grim

nonperson 23-01-2020 08:39 PM

*high fives all the olive haters*

I've not had goats cheese either but I think I'd probably eat it!

chinahorse 23-01-2020 08:40 PM

Goats cheese isnt much better than olives

nonperson 23-01-2020 08:40 PM

Oh.......

one_step_closer 23-01-2020 08:41 PM

The Lidl bakery does a nice goats cheese and pesto focaccia.

Cacoethes 23-01-2020 08:42 PM

I'm sad at all the olive hate :(

Shirayuki 23-01-2020 08:43 PM

whats *struggles with saying but then gives up* focaccia?

Eska 23-01-2020 08:45 PM

It's a kind of soft Italian bread, often with toppings. It's tasty.

Shirayuki 23-01-2020 08:45 PM

oh, how would you pronounce it though?

one_step_closer 23-01-2020 08:46 PM

Fo-catch-a?

Eska 23-01-2020 08:48 PM

Something between that and fok-catch-ee-a, I think, is roughly what I say.

one_step_closer 23-01-2020 08:49 PM

Someone told me the i/e bit isn't pronounced.

However you say it it's tasty!

Shirayuki 23-01-2020 08:50 PM

thanks XD that works ^^

nonperson 23-01-2020 08:52 PM

Beckie, it just means more olives for you!

I'm not sure how I pronounce focaccia now... It's not a word I say out loud often, if ever. o.O

Eska 23-01-2020 08:52 PM

I just looked it up and in IPA it's foˈkattʃa, so yes, the "ee" sound is not pronounced!

nonperson 23-01-2020 08:54 PM

I googled too and looked at Forvo and the Cambridge dictionary and they both agree the ee isn't pronounced.

How educational. =P

one_step_closer 23-01-2020 08:58 PM

That looks like a maths equation not a word Eska!

tamobhuuta 23-01-2020 09:00 PM

You're all wrong about olives. Haters.

Eska 23-01-2020 09:02 PM

It's what you get when people realise that English's idea of phonetic spelling is totally illogical impossible nonsense and decide there needs to be a better system of symbols :P

nonperson 23-01-2020 09:04 PM

I'm quite happy to be wrong about olives. =P

You should all be glad that you don't have botanical latin plant names to try to pronounce on a daily basis!!

Eska 23-01-2020 09:09 PM

I see you botanical latin plant names and raise you haematological malignancy terminology!
