We just need a teeny tiny southern-ish meet

Cacoethes 27-11-2021 01:07 PM

Yes we do!

nonperson 27-11-2021 01:36 PM

Has everyone met everyone irl? o.o

Elmer 27-11-2021 01:39 PM

I’ve met a fair few RYLers, mostly a verrry long time ago

Elmer 27-11-2021 01:40 PM

Before meets died a death

not_so_insig 27-11-2021 01:47 PM

I went on one meet but I think all the rylers that I have met have left now. Was a bit awkward where I was living at the time with only 1 bus a day.

nonperson 27-11-2021 01:52 PM

Better for the buses to be awkward than the people.

I met some RYLers in Edinburgh once but that was the only time I went.

This thread has been very zoomy so I can't reply to everything that's been going on!

We had very strong winds last night and some grey concrete type thing is on the ground but I don't know where it's come from. I can't see any change on my house but I'm not an expert. I should ask my neighbour if I catch her outside because she knows everything. I don't want to get in touch with the council if it's not something important.

nonperson 27-11-2021 02:02 PM

We've only been talking about the weather, Lindsay =P

Could it have blown in from somewhere else?

not_so_insig 27-11-2021 02:17 PM

All this wind reminds me of the scene from Mary Poppins. I say when it's windy that I might do a Mary Poppins act when out and about.

not_so_insig 27-11-2021 02:24 PM

Someone in my local Facebook group has lost their greenhouse. They said that Dorothy took it.

tamobhuuta 27-11-2021 02:36 PM


I just had lunch. It involved Skips. Nom.

one_step_closer 27-11-2021 02:44 PM

I have no idea if it's my concrete or if it belongs to someone else.

Haha, Dawn! But that's not great losing a greenhouse.

I love Skips Tamo! Might need to get some at some point. I had a tuna mayo sandwich which I bought from a general shop and there was a very thin tuna filling so I didn't enjoy it much.

not_so_insig 27-11-2021 03:14 PM

Oh dear that's not good Lindsay. I had a bacon and sausage sandwich yesterday. There wasn't much bacon. My male cat has the bacon so he was disappoint.

nonperson 27-11-2021 03:36 PM

Mmmmm Skips.

one_step_closer 27-11-2021 04:56 PM

Did skips ever change their flavour for a while? Or was that Quavers? I remember Quavers doing salt and vinegar and prawn cocktail.

nonperson 27-11-2021 05:04 PM

Hm, prawn cocktail Quavers is ringing a bell. Can't remember if I ever tried them.

Elmer 27-11-2021 06:09 PM

Prawn cocktail and salt and vinegar quavers are very much a thing, they were re-released recently and are vegan!

nonperson 27-11-2021 06:21 PM

But are they tasty?

shadow-light 27-11-2021 06:57 PM

when I come in here I often only read the last post, then sometimes work back

got to admit "but are they tasty" feels liek an odd comment to join on :laugh:

shadow-light 27-11-2021 06:59 PM

oh I remember meets! I've been to 3, though one of them doesn't fully count and only 2 of us turned up and we didn't actually see each other :laugh: we both stood outside newcastle train station for like half an hour then both went home :laugh:

But are they?!

shadow-light 27-11-2021 07:18 PM

no idea... I can't stand the texture of quavers or skips

nonperson 27-11-2021 07:25 PM

Understandable. I think they're an acquired texture.

tamobhuuta 27-11-2021 08:02 PM

I love how Skips fizz and melt.

Cacoethes 27-11-2021 08:59 PM


not_so_insig 27-11-2021 09:09 PM

Hi Beckie have you had a good day?

Cacoethes 27-11-2021 09:18 PM

Yes thanks!

nonperson 27-11-2021 10:01 PM

Helloooo >.>

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 10:39 AM

Morning everyone!

It is -1C!!!

tamobhuuta 28-11-2021 11:57 AM

It's 2 here.

How are you?

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 12:05 PM

Its gone up to 2 now

I'm ok thanks
Very cold!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 28-11-2021 12:24 PM

I am also chilly. Got my dressing gown on and wrapped in a blanket. My only plan is the Italian Mass which I'm hoping will still not be busy.

Do you have any plans?

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 12:32 PM

Sounds cosy!
I am also wrapped in a blanket.
And my heating has been on all morning!

Fingers crossed it's not too busy!

I'm just doing some washing and catching up with taskmaster

tamobhuuta 28-11-2021 12:36 PM

Mostly when I do washing I forget it and leave it in the machine.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 12:47 PM

Luckily I never forget it!
I get it out when it beeps and put it by the stairs for next time I go up

tamobhuuta 28-11-2021 02:50 PM

That's very organised. First I have to remember to take it upstairs, then I have to actually put it away.

My sister has come round :)

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 02:55 PM

I just have to do it right there and then or I never will!

Aww that's nice!

Elmer 28-11-2021 05:26 PM

Laundry is such a big thing, for such a little thing. And takes three weeks to dry at this time of year.

In case anyone was interested, I am, in fact, stranded in the Midlands.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 05:37 PM

Very true
Luckily I have a washer dryer so I don't have to wait for it to dry!

Oh nooo!
Do you know when you'll be able to get home?
Is it because of the weather?

Elmer 28-11-2021 05:42 PM

Ahh, very lucky.

The weather yeah, a sudden, not insignificant amount of snow has happened. Home tomorrow morning hopefully.

nonperson 28-11-2021 05:42 PM

Noo for being stranded! I'm assuming you have somewhere to stay?

With the wind chill it was -4 this morning when I went out. I'm now wearing a thermal top, t-shirt, jumper, hoodie and beanie and have the heating on.

Also I've said this many times before but my tumble drier is honestly the best thing I have ever bought. Absolute game changer.

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 05:46 PM

Fingers crossed for you Lio!

I am also wrapped up and have the heating on!

Yes absolutely! I love mine too

I am watching 'Raiders of the lost shark'
It is the worst shark film I have ever seen
I love it!

nonperson 28-11-2021 05:56 PM

Is it literally Indiana Jones v sharks?

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 06:03 PM

It's not related to raiders of the lost ark AT ALL!
It's completely random and I could do a better job acting than these people!
Someone just screamed 'FLYING SHHAAAARRRK'
Now a flying shark has just taken down an aeroplane.

nonperson 28-11-2021 07:10 PM

Ah I thought there might be some similarity at least based on the title.

Totally believable :eyeroll:

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 07:14 PM

It was absolutely awful.
Makes sharknado look Oscar worthy!
Just my type of film!

nonperson 28-11-2021 07:24 PM


And not mine at all!

Have you seen there's a new Hawkeye series on Disney+ ?

Cacoethes 28-11-2021 07:30 PM


Yes I did hear about that!
Need to watch it!

Oh and I also caught up with the end of this series of taskmaster. The list for the next series is out already! It's Ardal O'Hanlon, Bridget Christie, Chris Ramsey, Judi Love and Sophie Duker

nonperson 28-11-2021 07:36 PM

I have not watched any of the last series... =(

But yay, Ardal O'Hanlon will be good! Don't know any of the others.
