I used to love hacking up mountains and stuff abroad

Oh the hacking up mountain part was fab. Getting stranded in a storm without horse at the top of a mountain in a foreign country for hours-not so much :P

Yeah I like the odd bit of rain.

17 guests apparently viewing the thread. Speak one of you! :P

Another invention needs to be that we can each individually choose what weather we have at specific times. I'm guessing that is something that can't be invented though!

What even is hacking? I'm imagining you on a horse with a laptop trying to hack into peoples computers. :laugh:

Hello guest spies.

nonperson 11-07-2018 07:37 PM

Hello guesties. I bet they're all bots or something...

Horse laptop hacking sounds like the kind of horse riding I might want to try. =P

one_step_closer 11-07-2018 07:38 PM

It might be quite hard to ride a moving horse and use a laptop at the same time though.

Buttons. 11-07-2018 07:38 PM

Where there's a will there's a way Lins-I myself am just waiting patiently to be transformed into my long term idol Storm from X-men.

Hacking is riding a horse at a fairly slow rate along trails/roads/up mountains etc. I just had an image of a horse trying to hack someone online with it's hooves-thankyou Lins :)

one_step_closer 11-07-2018 07:39 PM

Poor horse having to walk up a mountain.

Buttons. 11-07-2018 07:39 PM

I miss horse riding loads...

Not with a special modified saddle!

Buttons. 11-07-2018 07:40 PM

Poor horse gets many treats, a roof over it's head and mental stimulation and exercise. I'm sure they're just fine :P

Buttons. 11-07-2018 07:41 PM

I sense a new invention brewing...

one_step_closer 11-07-2018 07:42 PM

I'm now imagining a horse with a laptop type thing attached to it that American police have in their cars.

Buttons. 11-07-2018 07:45 PM

Good luck with that-will the saddle adjust when the horse spooks and decides to hare it off in the opposite direction? :P

nonperson 11-07-2018 07:45 PM

Something else to add to Beckie's list of things to invent. =)

one_step_closer 11-07-2018 07:48 PM

The saddle will detach like one of those car seat blaster things and it will have a parachute on it and GPS locate where the horse is and land you back on it.

one_step_closer 11-07-2018 07:50 PM

Too genius for me to actually invent though!

Cacoethes 11-07-2018 07:56 PM

That is indeed a genuis idea!

Back from slimming world and had a loss :)
Now pizza!!

one_step_closer 11-07-2018 07:57 PM

Well done Beckie! :-)

Hope you enjoy your pizza, what toppings are you having today?

Cacoethes 11-07-2018 08:03 PM

Im having a veggie feast one today!

one_step_closer 11-07-2018 08:04 PM

Yum. What kind of base?

I'm heading offline to read a bit more of the very boring book the library has chosen for the crime fiction reading group. I'm about a third of the way through and I want it to end!

Buttons. 11-07-2018 08:07 PM

Lins I reckon combined with Beckie you can both figure it out.

Beckie that's awesome! And jeal of the pizza! Although I did have a fairly decent meat pie earlier.

Good luck with the book Lins.

Cacoethes 11-07-2018 08:15 PM

A thin base one!

Good luck with the book!

Thanks Buttons!
Was convinced I'd put a bit on because of a few treats but I was lucky!!

Buttons. 11-07-2018 08:20 PM

Just tell me the pizza doesn't have peppers or I will explode with jealousy!

Cacoethes 11-07-2018 08:29 PM

It did have peppers!!

Buttons. 11-07-2018 08:30 PM


Cacoethes 11-07-2018 08:32 PM

It was very yummy!! :tongue2:

Buttons. 11-07-2018 08:37 PM

I want pizza with peppers *plays only child wailing card*

Cacoethes 11-07-2018 08:37 PM

Get one then!!!

I'm one of 5 kids, we didn't get to wail about stuff :p

Buttons. 11-07-2018 08:41 PM

I have binged enough today thankyou don't tempt me! And in reality if I'd acted like a typical only child wailing my dad would have been the first person to scream in my face, plus I spent a lot of time with child minder and her brood so learnt to wait my turn. Doesn't mean I won't play the only child card now if it works my way though :P

Cacoethes 11-07-2018 08:44 PM

Get one tomorrow!!

The only child card will never work with me!!! :p

I wanted to be an only child for years!!
But now I'm glad I have siblings.
Makes things more interesting.
And having 3 brothers has toughened me up a bit
Although the long car journeys would have been nicer without constant farting...

Buttons. 11-07-2018 08:46 PM

Tomorrow it is on-pizza ftw. Might even get a meat feast one with peppers. Yes I am a rebel.

Ha ha I can imagine farting car journeys not so fun. Glad you have them around you now (and hopefully farting less :P)

Cacoethes 11-07-2018 08:49 PM

Sounds yummy!!

Nope not fun!
Especially with one brother who named his farts
Boys are gross
Sadly one of them still farts shamelessly!!
They are good to have about now we're older though
They are very supportive so I'm lucky!
And one is the best Uncle to Jasmine!

Buttons. 11-07-2018 08:58 PM

I caved, ordered small meat feast with peppers, with a bottle of pop to make up the price. When I end up being rolled out of my house I'll blame you! :P

Boys are gross. But sounds like you hit the jackpot on brothers :)

Cacoethes 11-07-2018 09:05 PM

Hey don't be blaming me for your lack of self control!! :tongue2:

Yeah, they're pretty awesome!

Buttons. 11-07-2018 09:42 PM

You tempted me!!!

Ha ha I grew up with 3 younger male cousins (know not same as siblings!) spent a lot of time at my grandparents while our respective parents worked. I know how lovely and lovable and awesome they can be...but also how annoying and gross and boyish :P

Cacoethes 11-07-2018 09:48 PM

Yep thats boys for you!!
I have 2 male cousins as well.
You can imagine how pleased I was when my sister was born!! :tongue2:

Buttons. 12-07-2018 06:05 AM

(Early) morning all :)

chinahorse 12-07-2018 07:37 AM

Morning lovely. How're you?

Buttons. 12-07-2018 07:55 AM

Dog is limping. No idea what she's been doing while I was asleep. Waiting for support worker to get here (luckily she was coming early anyway today) and for vets to open. I've checked the pads of her paws nothing there, she doesn't seem in pain when I touch the leg but I'm worried and feel guilty for having slept. Other than that okay.

How are you?

Cacoethes 12-07-2018 12:08 PM

Morning guys

Don't feel guilty Buttons, dogs can and will get themselves into all kinds of scrapes.
I hope she's ok, it's a good sign that she doesnt seem in pain

Buttons. 12-07-2018 03:30 PM

It was nothing, she'd just scraped her paw a bit, no walks for five days (which she will not thank me for :P) and painkiller liquid thing for those five days (which you squirt into her food and for some reason she loves, so it all balances out :P)

Have finally got my hair dematted at the hairdressers and the shaven part reshaven, and I'm getting the colour put on it next Wednesday so it'll be all lovely and bright for the HP convention thing.

Did also have a group of lads who found it funny to try and throw coins to jam in the wheels of my wheelchair on the way through town to get a taxi home, but jackasses are just part of life.

Everything looking okay :)

Cacoethes 12-07-2018 03:54 PM

Glad she's ok!
Hair sounds good!

Wtf is wrong with people?!?!
I honestly cannot comprehend how people could think it was funny to do stuff like that.

Buttons. 12-07-2018 03:59 PM

Thanks and me too :)

Yeah I don't get it either. One did look slightly guilty when I span round and said 'thanks for that' his mates laughed more and I added 'yeah picking on disabled people, really funny'. They can only have been 14/15. If nothing else my mum would have murdered me if I had behaved like that, even if I didn't have the morals to be like 'yeah that's probably not on'. But like I said, the world is full of jackasses you just got to pick yourself up and move on. At least I didn't get beaten up this time! And they lost money :P

one_step_closer 12-07-2018 04:11 PM

:( Maybe you could have asked them to throw 20 notes next time.

Buttons. 12-07-2018 04:13 PM

^ Sounds like a very good plan!

How are you Lins?

one_step_closer 12-07-2018 04:19 PM

It could be like that Noel's House Party thing where people stand in a booth with money in notes raining down on them and shove it in their pants and stuff. You could adapt your wheelchair to have extra pockets and hiding places.

I'm *shrugs* the usual I guess. I went to the gym group and took part in the circuits thing they were doing this week though rather than feeling extra stupid not doing it.

What will you be doing with the rest of your day?

Buttons. 12-07-2018 04:23 PM

So need to adapt my wheelchair for that, and perfect a forlorn expression :P

I am after rushing vets, Tesco for basics and hair dressers and waiting for someone to help me get back in my house chilling out in front of the TV, and bar cig times not moving a muscle more than necessary.

What are you up to?

one_step_closer 12-07-2018 04:27 PM

I hope you have a lovely chilled out evening/night. You've been very busy today! Anything planned TV wise or just see what's on?

I need to have a shower but no other proper plans so will just do internet stuff and TV and reading probably.
