Morning guys

I had dreams about serial killers. I've probably been watching too much criminal minds....

Harry Potter dreams sound way better!

nonperson 09-01-2021 12:25 PM

Eek, try watching Harry Potter before you go to bed, Beckie?

Hey Lindsay. Yeah nothing much to do today except a food shop later.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2021 12:29 PM

I hadn't even watched/listened to HP yesterday!

Cacoethes 09-01-2021 12:33 PM

Good idea np!

Oh no not the dreaded food shop! D:

nonperson 09-01-2021 12:38 PM

Yeah it came around quick this week didn't it. >.<

Need to make sure I go when it's super quiet this evening.

Cacoethes 09-01-2021 12:49 PM

It did!

Yes good plan

one_step_closer 09-01-2021 04:58 PM

I hope your shop goes fine NP.

What's everyone else doing this evening?

Cacoethes 09-01-2021 08:59 PM

Hi Lindsay

I’m not up to much. Just watched the live action mulan for the first time. It was ok but nowhere near as good as the animated version!

What are you up to?

nonperson 09-01-2021 10:45 PM

Shopping done! And quite successfully and not too stressfully.

I am wondering why Cadbury Darkmilk buttons still say "New!" on the packet though.

Cacoethes 09-01-2021 11:23 PM

Yay well done! :-D

Hmmm. Interesting!

nonperson 09-01-2021 11:36 PM

Marketing ploy, I reckon.

You're up late!

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 06:12 AM


So were you!

It is 6:12am and I am awake for some reason

nonperson 10-01-2021 07:43 AM

You're up early! Haha.

Yeah I was still winding down after shopping. And now I'm awake again because my brain doesn't believe in weekends. Been on/off awake since 5am ish.

And the cat is whining for breakfast.

Hope you've managed to get back to sleep.

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 07:59 AM

I think it was about 5:30am for me!

Aren't cats always whining for food? :p

Nope I didn't. I have accepted that I am awake now and will have to deal with it!

nonperson 10-01-2021 08:26 AM

Oh that's rubbish. =(

Not all cats! Geordi's just more whiny about it in the winter (boredom eating, I think) and it's only some mornings where he literally sits next to my head and whines at me.

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 08:31 AM

It is a bit!

Come to think of it, when we had cats they weren't whiny.
They were outdoor cats though. They had little nests in the barn that they used to sleep in

nonperson 10-01-2021 08:49 AM

Aw, barn nests sound cosy! Not quite the same but in the summer I often find soil nests in the garden where cats have been sunbathing, haha.

Geordi's an outdoor cat but really doesn't like the cold and wet so he's rarely out at the moment. And being Siamese he's very vocal anyway, so his whining is quite loud and just that sort of tone that really irritates me. XD

I keep wanting to record him because his voice is so different to normal cats. A lady on the phone once thought he was a screaming toddler in the background.

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 09:09 AM

They made them out of horse rugs and hay
Actually looked quite cosy!
Awww haha!

Bless him!

I’m trying to imagine what that sounds like!

nonperson 10-01-2021 09:15 AM

Not normal is what it sounds like!

I can't stop sneezing this morning, argh. >.<

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 09:48 AM


Oh no! Do you have a cold coming do you think?

one_step_closer 10-01-2021 10:33 AM

Morning everyone. I was going to go for my usual morning Tesco/walk but it's too icy. I hate ice.

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 10:50 AM

Morning lindsay
Yeah ice is awful
Do you think it will thaw out later?

tamobhuuta 10-01-2021 11:54 AM

Hi people :) ice sucks but we've had a beautiful frost.

I think I might have a PJ day but I've not decided

nonperson 10-01-2021 12:42 PM

Nah, don't think it's a cold. I'm just sneezy.

Ice is horrible, I'm sorry it's stopping you from going out, Lindsay. =(

The cobwebs are all frozen outside here, it's pretty. =)

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 12:49 PM

I get like that too np

That does sound pretty!

nonperson 10-01-2021 12:54 PM

It's probably cat hair or dust... =/

What's on your watchlist today?

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 01:05 PM

I was watching criminal minds BUT it seems half of season 14 and the whole of season 15 is missing off prime. And I've finished it. So now I don't know what to do!

nonperson 10-01-2021 01:08 PM

Oh that's a bummer. And a bit weird - why half the season? o.O

I'm watching Being Human on Prime.

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 01:17 PM

It is very odd. And extremely annoying!

What's that about?

nonperson 10-01-2021 01:24 PM

Comedy drama about a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost! It's a really old series now - 2008. Still good though.

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 01:25 PM

Sounds interesting!

I'm watching the young ones now.

nonperson 10-01-2021 01:26 PM

Now that is old. =P

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 01:33 PM

From before I was even born!

nonperson 10-01-2021 01:38 PM

It started before I was born too! But finished 5 months after. >.>

tamobhuuta 10-01-2021 01:45 PM

What's that about Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 01:50 PM

Haha np!

It’s a comedy tamo. About 4 ridiculous broke students in the 80’s.
I didn’t realise quite how offensive it was though lol!

nonperson 10-01-2021 01:53 PM

It is very offensive! I've never been able to watch it. =/

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 02:13 PM

I first watched it when I was a young teenager so I am just realising how offensive!

tamobhuuta 10-01-2021 03:51 PM

Doesn't sound like something I would enjoy...

Yesterday I started watching a discovery of witches, I wasn't sure I was going to like it but it is really good.

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 04:00 PM

Probably not!
It's a bit of a cult thing I think

What's that about?

tamobhuuta 10-01-2021 05:39 PM

Witches and vampires. In Elizabethan and modern times.

one_step_closer 10-01-2021 05:41 PM

Is that on normal TV Tamo?

Cacoethes 10-01-2021 06:24 PM

Sounds interesting!

tamobhuuta 10-01-2021 07:04 PM

It's on Sky.

tamobhuuta 11-01-2021 09:57 AM

Morning all. How was your night?

one_step_closer 11-01-2021 10:06 AM

Morning Tamo, how are you?

My night was uncomfortable, my eczema has flared up in patches all over my body.

tamobhuuta 11-01-2021 10:14 AM

:( that's not good. Is there anything that helps?

I am good, but didn't sleep very well. And I think I missed a call from my GP. On the other hand I am on the sofa with a hot water bottle :)

Cacoethes 11-01-2021 12:42 PM

Afternoon guys

Sorry to hear that lindsay
I've never had eczema so I'm not sure what it's like but do you have any creams to put on it?

That's annoying tamo!
You sound comfy though which is good! :)

one_step_closer 11-01-2021 01:04 PM

I have a steroid cream and emollient but I think I need a stronger steroid cream. I use my creams when I can but I have to do my hands when I'm going to bed because if Crookshanks smells the cream on my hands he licks it off.

Are you watching anything on the sofa Tamo? Will you be able to phone your GP to see if it was them who called?

How are you doing Beckie?

Cacoethes 11-01-2021 01:16 PM

Oh no! Naughty crookshanks!

I'm ok thanks. Just put some washing on.
That's about as exciting as my day is getting!
