Hammock is fun. It's pretty comfy, made it comfier, by adding a pillow but I got out because it's lunchtime.

It has a little stand that you put together

one_step_closer 29-06-2023 02:13 PM

I was totally imagining you tying it to trees. :laugh:

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 02:32 PM

Love a hammock!
Home and showered.
Now nothing to do until taekwondo later!

one_step_closer 29-06-2023 03:14 PM

What can you occupy yourself with, Beckie? Don't wear yourself out before Taekwondo though. Maybe you can chill out in Jen's hammock.

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 03:16 PM

Just watching old episodes of taskmaster atm!
I've had a very sudden headache come on which is very annoying.
Would love to chill in the hammock tbh!

one_step_closer 29-06-2023 03:18 PM

Headache is not good, have you taken some painkillers? I hope it eases soon. What sort of tasks are they doing on Taskmaster?

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 03:26 PM

Not yet. I don't like to take painkillers unless i absolutely have to.
If it gets worse i will.
At the moment, lolly is painting wall with cake.
I can't remember what the actual task is.
Honestly today my cognitive abilities are more awful than usual!

one_step_closer 29-06-2023 04:02 PM

Maybe your brain needs a nice break. Well, allow yourself painkillers if needed. What a waste of cake.

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 04:11 PM

I think it does!
I haven't really been doing anything overly mentally taxing!
I will be at taekwondo probably.
Yeah i will. Seems to be subsiding by itself.

It is a waste of cake.
The task was to destroy a cake in the best way possible lol
Noel fielding put it in a washing machine.

tamobhuuta 29-06-2023 04:20 PM

I'm ok. Went to Mass because it's the feast of Peter and Paul today but we went to a nice quiet church and sat near the exit, just in case!

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 04:30 PM

Sounds good tamo!

long road 29-06-2023 04:52 PM

I went back outside for a bit and spent some of the time listening to music in the hammock. Was super chill vibes.

Hope your head feels better soon Beckie.

Poor washing machine full of liquidised cake

one_step_closer 29-06-2023 05:17 PM

The question that my brain immediately wanted answered is, did he put detergent in the washing machine?

Well done, Tamo. How are you today?

That does sound very chill, Jen. I'm going to ask you a question I'm always asking because things are so different weather wise here, was it nice enough weather to be out in?

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 05:26 PM

Sounds lush jen!

Head is mostly ok now thanks!

I don't believe he put detergent in the machine!

Here it's sunny and 21
I don't think it's classed as hot enough to wear a black t shirt to taekwondo unfortunately.

one_step_closer 29-06-2023 05:40 PM

I'm glad your headache is getting better.

Will you melt in your proper taekwondo clothes?

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 05:55 PM

Probably! But it has to be exceptionally hot for them to allow t shirts!

I don't remember that one but it made me think of the task where Alex was made to sit on a cake with his bare bum.

Better than yesterday thanks :) how are you?

long road 29-06-2023 06:28 PM

It was sunny in fact too hot to be out in direct sunlight so west the hammock up under the gazebo. But every now and then there was a nice refreshing breeze!

one_step_closer 29-06-2023 06:37 PM

Do you think cake went inside his bum... *cringe*

I'm glad you're doing better, Tamo and I hope you have a good day tomorrow too.

I'm unexplainable right now.

That sounds perfect, Jen.

nonperson 29-06-2023 06:56 PM

He said the cake did indeed go inside. It was so cringe to watch but hilarious at the same time.

I'm sorry you're unexplainable at the moment =/

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 07:17 PM

Eugh! The horror!
With the washing machine one, they said cake was coming up through the sink for days XD

nonperson 29-06-2023 07:22 PM

I bet it was! Dunno how I missed that one.

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 07:39 PM

It was season 4. So quite a while ago!

nonperson 29-06-2023 08:04 PM

I watched the Noel Fielding ones though! Or thought I did... =P

one_step_closer 29-06-2023 08:08 PM

Why are they being so cruel to cakes?!

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 08:08 PM

Maybe you weren't concentrating properly?? I do that all the time. Then I'll zone back in and be like 'what? What just happened??'

The cake is a lie
(No one is going to get this reference and I'm just gonna look insane) XD

one_step_closer 29-06-2023 08:10 PM

That phrase reminds me of something but the details are not coming forward!

nonperson 29-06-2023 08:13 PM

It probably was that, I do it all the time with so many TV shows. Or maybe all my other Taskmaster cake memories have been surpassed by Alex sitting on that one.

Google has told me what that is referring to.

long road 29-06-2023 08:46 PM

*Opens portal* I think you will find I am a nerd Beckie!

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 08:46 PM

Quite possibly!

Ah np! You cheated! :tongue2:

I have just rediscovered the song by combichrist - what the f*ck is wrong with you people
That was on repeat pretty much all through year - 8 to 6th form XD

Woohoo jen!

long road 29-06-2023 09:02 PM

I am now listening to The Cake Song (Still Alive)

It took me a while to translate that what the **** is wrong with you people was the title of the song not a comment on people who listened to combi christ XD

Cacoethes 29-06-2023 09:27 PM

Ahahaha! Yeah, i wasn't very clear there XD

long road 29-06-2023 10:10 PM

To be fair I have also never heard of combi christ so had no context.

Generally my music taste is rock/ alternative / indie / folk with smattering of pop and metal but generally the more mainstream stuff from pop and metal.

Cacoethes 30-06-2023 06:18 AM

Combichrist are metal. Though not overly screamy.

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 30-06-2023 09:57 AM

Good morning Cacoethes, how are you?

nonperson 30-06-2023 10:17 AM

I'm cold!!!

tamobhuuta 30-06-2023 10:19 AM

Oh no np! It's cooler here today too. Can you wrap up warm?

Cacoethes 30-06-2023 11:21 AM

It is a bit cooler today!
I was wearing shorts because i had to go to circuits, but also a hoodie XD
It's back to jeans weather i think

long road 30-06-2023 11:55 AM

I prefer the less screamy metal. Screams hurt my sensitive little ears!

Morning! (Just)

I am rather achy this morning. Had a bit of a rough night FND wise last night so only woke up 45 minutes ago.

I haven't been outside here yet but it does look quite grey. I do enjoy the snuggly feeling of a hoodie though so kind of hope its cooler here today too.

tamobhuuta 30-06-2023 12:05 PM

Sorry you had a tough night LR.

I'm wearing an oodie.

long road 30-06-2023 12:45 PM

My flat has very thick concrete walls which means it takes a while to cool down after it has heated up. Great in winter as you need to have the heating on a bit less, not so great in summer when you are trying to cool the place down. Opening the window helps but only a bit.

I have a cup of my fancy Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee, which is delicious and helping me wake up.

tamobhuuta 30-06-2023 12:53 PM


nonperson 30-06-2023 01:02 PM

Totally read that as Ethiopian giraffe coffee o.O

Cacoethes 30-06-2023 01:10 PM

That's exactly how i read it np XD

Just been to asda and aldi.
I was ok just wearing a light jacket.

nonperson 30-06-2023 01:15 PM

Oh good, I'm glad it wasn't just me! Poor giraffes...

I wish I hadn't worn shorts to work today.

nonperson 30-06-2023 01:17 PM

Maybe I should rephrase that slightly... I wish I had worn trousers INSTEAD of shorts today. I obviously don't want to wear no shorts or no trousers. O.o

one_step_closer 30-06-2023 01:20 PM

Hey everyone.

It's raining here and I am quite cold. No rain with anyone else?

Sorry you had a difficult night, Jen. I hope you can still do some nice things today and have a better night tonight. Where did you get your fancy coffee from and where did you first taste it?

Lol, NP. I hope you would at least wear underwear!

not_so_insig 30-06-2023 01:26 PM

It's raining here Lindsay.

nonperson 30-06-2023 01:29 PM

It's trying to drizzle a little bit here.

I would hope so too but if I'm not wearing shorts in the first place then I may also not be in the right headspace to remember underwear. Who knows!
