I'm watching criminal minds!
Going to shower after this episode and got clubbercise tonight :)

I love animal crossing Rebecca! Haven't played it in years!

[Luna] 04-05-2017 04:27 PM

What's animal crossing?

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 04:54 PM

You play as an animal and you live in this animal community and do activities and stuff.
It's more fun than it sounds :p
I haven't played it in so long!

Sounds good Lorraine!

I ate a whole box of bakewell tarts.

You actually play as a human xD but your neighbours are animals. It's a life simulator, it has Christmas and Easter and celebrates your birthday. Pretty much has all the holidays in it. It's a awesome laid back game. You buy a house and can make it bigger. Gradually the neighbours leave your town, but you can ask them to stay if you really like them, and new animals move in to take their place. You can talk to them and do tasks for them. Send them letters, give them gifts that you buy in the shops, you can do your hair, change all your clothes. There's over 600 items in the game so you'll never get bored. I love it.

[Luna] 04-05-2017 05:21 PM

Sounds really fun actually!

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 05:29 PM

God that shows how long it's been since I've played it! XD
Was convinced you played as an animal! Maybe I was thinking about someth else?

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 05:31 PM

It's kind of therapeutic for me. Might be a good way for you to unwind :)

I'm not sure what game you can be thinking of Beckie! Lol

Sketchy 04-05-2017 05:33 PM

Been to the shop and now back home.

I've never played that game. I should get my Nintendo 3ds out and play some games. I have a Zelda game I haven't started yet.

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 05:33 PM

I've probably remembered several games and kind of mashed them together. I do that sometimes! Lol!

I've only got a ds lite. I'd love a 3ds to play the more recent Pokemon games. And I love Zelda too!

[Luna] 04-05-2017 05:36 PM

Sounds like me with films Beckie. I end up making up one whole new film made from bits and pieces of other films lol.

I need to go have a bath and pack a bag fr tomorrow. Someone give me some energy and motivation? I'm watching a Dr Phil episode where a girl believes she's pregnant with jesus.

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 05:39 PM

I do that too Luna! Lol!

Go go go! Have you got any nice bath stuff to use?
I've never seen Dr Phil. Sounds um... interesting!

[Luna] 04-05-2017 05:41 PM

I have a bath bomb I can use. I'll finish watching this then I'll go.
I've only ever seen bits of Dr phil but this one sounded so intriguing I had to give it a watch/

not_so_insig 04-05-2017 05:42 PM

I have a 3ds but I haven't played it for ages. I have theme park and Paddington unopened. The only time that I tend to play is when I am IP. I have about 20 ds games on my amazon wishlist though.

[Luna] 04-05-2017 05:44 PM

I think I used to have one but have no idea where it is. I think I gave it to my brother? Bit gutted now as Animal crossing sounds like a good distraction!

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 05:52 PM

You can get animal crossing on quite a few consoles I think.
I know you can get it for the Wii

[Luna] 04-05-2017 05:57 PM

Oh that's cool, I'll look into it.
What you up to Beckie?

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 06:06 PM

Watching criminal minds still.
Going to make dinner after this episode :)

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 07:25 PM

Oh gosh I am a Zelda nerd. love love LOVE Zelda! Twilight Princess is my favourite game, games down.

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 07:28 PM

I think the old school ocarina of time is my favourite!
I have a legend of Zelda tattoo. It's the song of healing from majoras mask. :)

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 07:32 PM

Oh wow that's amazing. My favourite tune is The song of storms from Ocarina. I'd love to get a Zelda tattoo. Either the Hylian crest or the tribal wolf from Twilight Princess.
I've never completed Majora, it's so stressful! I like to turn into Zora though and just swim around. That's fun!

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 07:35 PM

Those would be awesome tattoos!
I've seen quite a few people with triforce tattoos!
Tattoos are great because you can seek out your fellow nerds!
There are two guys at my local coffee shop who have tattoos of elvish writing from Lord of the rings and I went in there and was like 'omg is that elvish?!'

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 07:39 PM

That's awesome! Could you read it lol

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 07:46 PM

Unfortunately not!
I wish I could!

Off to clubbercise now guys. See ya later!

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 08:00 PM

Have fun!!!

[Luna] 04-05-2017 08:39 PM

Hope you have fun Beckie, let us know how it goes!

What are you up to Rebecca?

Sketchy 04-05-2017 08:57 PM

It's soooooooo warm. I have nice cold cans of gin and tonic. Think I might open one.
What's everyone is to this evening? I'm catching up on washings. Exciting stuff.

[Luna] 04-05-2017 08:59 PM

That sounds like a lovely idea (the gin and tonic).

I need to sort out my hair and get my stuff ready for tomorrow.

Sketchy 04-05-2017 09:00 PM

Hope you get your stuff sorted so you can then relax.

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 09:07 PM

Clubbercise was great as usual!
2 new routines added. She likes to keep us on our toes!

Gin and tonic sounds nice Lorraine!

How's it going Luna?

Sketchy 04-05-2017 09:08 PM

Glad you enjoyed clubbercise.

I've just poured my gin. Refreshing!

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 09:22 PM

I'm watching a program about stress. Love things like that, learning what happens to the body when things like that happen.

I'm also drinking some baileys. Love that stuff.

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 09:27 PM

I don't think I've ever actually tried gin!

Baileys is nice. I usually only have it at Christmas.

I don't really drink. I've had some wine and some Malibu in my kitchen since I moved in like 3 years ago and not touched!
I'll have a glass of wine on a meal out though. Or prosecco. I really like prosecco!

Sketchy 04-05-2017 09:28 PM

I like baileys. I like prosecco too. I sometimes have that as a treat with my sister.

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 09:29 PM

Oh dont get me wrong, I don;t drink Baileys a lot xD I just really like it.

I've never eaten out before. But I've tried wine at christmas, I hated it!

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 09:31 PM

Bailey's is delicious! And for some reason it seems to taste better with ice.

Yeah wine isn't for everyone!
How come you've never eaten out before?

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 09:34 PM

Ohhh I've never tried baileys with Ice! Sounds good I may try that later.

Oh, I don't have any friends, like, the only time I talk to people is on here. And I don't want to go out on my own because going out scares me. I'm a real live sad case tbh xD

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 09:38 PM

Going out can be scary. Especially when you have epilepsy. When I used to have lots of seizures, I was terrified of leaving the house.
I so just want to come and give you a hug!!

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 09:41 PM

Awww thank you! :D I can't remember the last time I got a hug!

Yeah living with epilespy is scary. Its the auras that really freak me out. You see things and hear things and you forget where you are. Not a good thing when youre out of your comfort zone!

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 09:51 PM

*big hugs!*

Auras are horrible! Epilepsy is just horrible. Everything about it sucks!
I'm really lucky to have found a med combo that has worked, but the fear still hasn't left me. I think the fear of seizures will always be there.

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 09:53 PM

I'm still working on finding a med combo that works for me. A lot of them have horrible side effects like weight gain, but I guess its worth it to get the seizures under control.

I'm really glad you have yours under control!!

Sketchy 04-05-2017 09:54 PM

*leaves hugs for both of you*

That must be really difficult for you both.

Cacoethes 04-05-2017 09:56 PM

Yeah the side effects can be awful.
I gained a lot of weight but I am losing it slowly with slimming world. It's a small price to pay for stability though!

Thanks :)
And thanks Lorraine x

I'm off to bed now.
Night night all and sleep well!

Sketchy 04-05-2017 09:57 PM

Good night Beckie. Sleep well.

Shy_Bambi 04-05-2017 09:57 PM

Thank you Lorraine!!

Good nighty Beckie, sleep well!

Voldemort 04-05-2017 10:27 PM

Epilepsy is awful. *Nods*

Voldemort 04-05-2017 11:43 PM

Jesus lads. I just googled the Queen to see how old she is and she's 91!

[Luna] 05-05-2017 07:30 AM

Morning guys, how are you all this morning?

Buttons. 05-05-2017 08:02 AM

I'm good, watching Big Bang Theory with a large mug of tea. Had productive day yesterday as well, went disabled swimming for first time and mostly enjoyed it, had lunch with my support worker and went to this magnetic jewellery event thing my old teacher from college invited me to :)

How are you doing lovely?

Cacoethes 05-05-2017 09:06 AM

Morning guys :)
