I have an amazon delivery coming tomorrow.

Cacoethes 08-02-2021 04:45 PM

What have you got coming?

Managed to get a tesco delivery slot for tomorrow! Score!
It's one of the flexi ones so between 6-10pm

nonperson 08-02-2021 05:24 PM

That was lucky. I thought you had to book them ages in advance still =o

I kept hearing Alexa adverts on the radio this afternoon, made me chuckle thinking of you chatting along to your Alexa. Can you change her voice like with satnavs?

I had an Amazon delivery too... of the wrong sized batteries >.<

not_so_insig 08-02-2021 05:42 PM

My delivery is rather boring as it's baby wipes.

Cacoethes 08-02-2021 05:50 PM

Me too np!!

I'm nof sure if you can change the voice.
A darth vader alexa would be pretty cool! :p

Oh no! Not the wrong size batteries! D:

Ah that is a bit boring Dawn. But practical!

nonperson 08-02-2021 06:32 PM

Hah, yes Darth Vader would be amazing. XD

Yeah turns out I ordered the wrong size by mistake. Annoying!

Cacoethes 08-02-2021 06:47 PM

There are star wars quotes you can say to alexa and she'll reply with references.
I said 'alexa, execute order 66' and she said 'yes my lord, hold on, I'm not a clone trooper!'
I'm having fun :p

Very annoying!

nonperson 08-02-2021 07:03 PM

Omg she is way cooler than I imagined :shocked:

Cacoethes 08-02-2021 07:10 PM

She has a few tricks up her (imaginary) sleeve :p

nonperson 08-02-2021 07:16 PM

It's making me think of the Big Bang Theory episode when Raj goes to meet the real Siri =)

not_so_insig 08-02-2021 07:17 PM

Have you asked alexa to marry you yet Beckie?

Cacoethes 08-02-2021 07:22 PM

I remember that episode np. It's funny!

Just did! Haha!

nonperson 08-02-2021 07:33 PM

I hope she said yes.

Cacoethes 08-02-2021 07:46 PM

Unfortunately she said 'I don't want to be tied down'
Rejected by a machine :'(

not_so_insig 08-02-2021 07:50 PM

Lol Beckie.

Cacoethes 08-02-2021 07:53 PM

We were getting on so well too! :p

one_step_closer 09-02-2021 09:27 AM

Morning everyone, how are you all? Alexa sounds like a good friend!

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 09:38 AM

Morning lindsay
I'm ok thanks!
How are you?

Lol! She is!

not_so_insig 09-02-2021 02:28 PM

Quiet in here today!

I am still waiting for my amazon order.

one_step_closer 09-02-2021 03:04 PM

I got boring post today. But I got a toffee filled yum yum from Lidl. :-)

When is your order due Dawn?

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 03:05 PM

It has been quiet in here today!

Mmmm that sounds delicious lindsay!

not_so_insig 09-02-2021 03:20 PM

It's due between 4 and 6 pm Lindsay. But originally it was 3.15 pm to 5.15 pm. I have never had an amazon delivery so late.

Oooh today's escape to the country is in North Wales. I am very familiar with the places shown.

one_step_closer 09-02-2021 04:01 PM

I've had deliveries from Amazon come after 7pm which is annoying and messes up my wind down routine.

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 04:03 PM

I've had one estimated at 5:30-8:30 before.
It came around 7

not_so_insig 09-02-2021 04:08 PM

I am hoping that I don't need the wipes before they come as I have none hence why I ordered it from amazon.

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 04:17 PM

Fingers crossed Dawn!

I hope my tesco delivery doesn't come too late
I have zopiclone to take tonight so I'll probably be tired!

not_so_insig 09-02-2021 04:21 PM

Now it's even later the tracking. Ffs.

I hope your tesco order comes sooner rather than later Beckie.

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 04:22 PM

Ugh that's so annoying

Thanks Dawn

tamobhuuta 09-02-2021 04:46 PM

Hi everyone. I would love a toffee yum yum.

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 04:57 PM

Hey tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 09-02-2021 05:01 PM

Not great! I have been spasming badly all day, it has stopped me speaking, holding things etc. How about you?

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 05:18 PM

Sorry to hear that tamo
Hope it gets better soon!

I'm ok thanks

tamobhuuta 09-02-2021 05:26 PM

Do you have to do anything this evening?

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 05:30 PM

Nope! Just waiting for my tesco delivery

not_so_insig 09-02-2021 05:42 PM

My amazon delivery has arrived.

not_so_insig 09-02-2021 05:46 PM

Ooh I have discovered that aero chocolate is prime eligible. This is very bad.

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 05:50 PM

That's good!
Oh no!

nonperson 09-02-2021 05:55 PM

Beckieee, when you've bought fudge online where did you get it from??

And hello all. =)

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 06:03 PM

Ochil fudge pantry!

Hey np!
How are you?

nonperson 09-02-2021 06:05 PM

Oooh. Would you recommend? I'm trying to buy some for my friend and it's hard to tell whether fudge tastes good just by the pictures (although it has made me dribble on the cat as he's on my lap...)

I'm alright. Quite tired this evening. =/

How're you?

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 06:07 PM

I would definitely recommend!
I nearly ordered some today actually!

Early night then?

I'm ok thanks

nonperson 09-02-2021 06:10 PM

I'll check them out. =)

Yeah, I didn't sleep too well last night so I'm going to put something in the oven for dinner in a bit and then will probably fall asleep soon after that once warm and fed!

Glad you're ok. How's Alexa? =P

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 06:12 PM

Sounds good!

I just asked alexa how she was and she replied 'I'm feeling a bit bewildered, for some reason people keep asking me if my refrigerator is running'
Which is a bit random!

not_so_insig 09-02-2021 06:14 PM

That's definitely random!

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 06:14 PM

Alexa is so funny

nonperson 09-02-2021 06:15 PM

I'm failing to think of a reason why people would ever ask that question... o.o

not_so_insig 09-02-2021 06:16 PM

What did people have for their tea/dinner? I had chicken fajitas.

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 06:16 PM

There is that old prank call thing.
'Is your refrigerator running?'
'Well you'd better go and catch it!'

Ninja post Dawn!
I haven't had dinner yet.
I'm not really hungry
I'm getting the stuff for fajitas in my tesco order!

nonperson 09-02-2021 06:21 PM

Don't know that I've ever heard of that prank call. o.O

I'm just having unhealthy fish and chips and sweetcorn from the freezer.

Cacoethes 09-02-2021 06:24 PM

It's a classic!

Sounds good np!
