Would you go all fizzy and frothy if someone shook you?

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 03:41 PM

Most likely! Haha!

nonperson 30-08-2020 03:43 PM

What if you ate Mentos first? o.o;;

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 03:56 PM

I'm going to have to try that out now!
Eat mentos, drink a ton of coke zero and jump up and down on a trampoline!!!

not_so_insig 30-08-2020 04:06 PM

That amount of lemonade would only last me one day too.

nonperson 30-08-2020 04:14 PM

As much as I'm laughing right now you know that won't be a good idea, Beckie!

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 04:23 PM

Well, maybe not.
Would be funny though :p

nonperson 30-08-2020 04:31 PM

Not wrong there! XD

I'm about to watch Black Panther for the first time.

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 04:43 PM

Black Panther is so good!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

nonperson 30-08-2020 05:14 PM

Enjoying it so far. So sad about Chadwick Boseman though.

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 05:21 PM

I know. I was gutted when I found out :(

nonperson 30-08-2020 05:29 PM

Makes me regret not watching this sooner.

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 05:36 PM

I can imagine anyone watching it now will feel a tinge of sadness.
I know I will when I inevitably watch it again!

Got to go and charge phone now grrrr
Hopefully my ipad has charged enough to use so I can just swap over.
I don't know how I survived all those years in adolescent and secure units where you weren't allowed your phone!

nonperson 30-08-2020 06:29 PM

I think we all wonder in general how we managed to survive without phones in the past. =/

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 07:02 PM

It's crazy to think of a world without phones now!
And what did we do before Google?!
How did people do education without it?!
Or settle arguments with people about stuff

nonperson 30-08-2020 07:29 PM

I remember doing education with Ask Jeeves!

Google is useful for settling arguments and navigating to places.

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 07:57 PM

Ah I remember Ask Jeeves!
Me and my brothers found the name highly amusing

google maps is very helpful.
I'd probably still be lost in the back streets of Venice if not for Google maps!

nonperson 30-08-2020 08:00 PM

I don't know how my family navigated Florida without smartphones back when we went in the late 90s. It was so easy this year, especially with wi-fi being everywhere and roaming contracts. Technology is good. =)

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 08:06 PM

technology is indeed good!
Though I do worry about the inevitable rise of the machines like in terminator or irobot.

nonperson 30-08-2020 09:48 PM

Yeah, me too. Try not to think about it. =/

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 09:56 PM

I try!

Finally showered and in clean PJs. Nice feeling!
Now I'm not sure what to do with myself.
Need to finish this word search

nonperson 30-08-2020 10:01 PM

Got many words left to find?

Cacoethes 30-08-2020 11:15 PM

7 words left.
I am convinced they left them out on purpose just to mess with people!
I can't find them anywhere!

tamobhuuta 31-08-2020 10:08 AM

I had to get my mum to help me finish my wordsearch yesterday.

Morning :)

Cacoethes 31-08-2020 10:51 AM

Morning tamo

I am grumpy after being woken for breakfast (I don't even eat breakfast!) And then again for meds.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 31-08-2020 11:55 AM

Life is so much easier when you get to choose your med times.

I am ok, making a cake for my sister's birthday.

Cacoethes 31-08-2020 12:00 PM

It is.
At least they have a replacement hot water flask. Though there's only one and it's small.

That sounds nice.
When is your sister's birthday?

nonperson 31-08-2020 02:30 PM

Mmmm cake.

not_so_insig 31-08-2020 04:11 PM

Hope it's a chocolate cake.

Cacoethes 31-08-2020 05:17 PM

I managed to get to the shops again today!

nonperson 31-08-2020 05:38 PM

All stocked up on more coke zero, I hope?

Cacoethes 31-08-2020 05:41 PM

I am indeed!
Apparently they will be doing a shop run every day now so I won't have to ration it this time! :P

nonperson 31-08-2020 06:33 PM

Ah that's good!

Did you have any left before you restocked? =P

Cacoethes 31-08-2020 06:41 PM

Nope it was all gone!
Don't judge me!
I have a problem :p

nonperson 31-08-2020 06:50 PM

Not judging you in the slightest! =)

I have the same problem with crisps at the moment.

Cacoethes 31-08-2020 06:58 PM

Ah crisps are very addictive!

nonperson 31-08-2020 07:27 PM

But very satisfying.

not_so_insig 31-08-2020 07:38 PM

I dont judge you Beckie as I am the same with lemonade.

tamobhuuta 31-08-2020 09:33 PM

Victoria sponge for her birthday today. She had some to humour me but didn't want to make a big deal about it. I think she can't enjoy anything.

Cacoethes 31-08-2020 10:46 PM

I'm glad I'm not the only one dawn!

That's a shame tamo.
Did you enjoy it?

tamobhuuta 01-09-2020 11:43 AM

Yeah I liked it


Cacoethes 01-09-2020 12:09 PM

First of September today!
Where has the year gone?!

not_so_insig 01-09-2020 01:07 PM

Afternoon all. My postcard to Germany has arrived. Only waiting for one to arrive and that's it.

nonperson 01-09-2020 02:22 PM


I've only been up about an hour. It looks like a nice day out. How's everyone?

tamobhuuta 01-09-2020 03:02 PM

I had so much trouble getting ready this morning, i had to keep going back to bed.

nonperson 01-09-2020 03:29 PM

That doesn't matter Tamo, as long as you got ready eventually. Did you have somewhere to be?

not_so_insig 01-09-2020 04:42 PM

Sadly I had an amazon order so I couldn't stay in bed. I have tassimo pods now as last time I had an tesco order they had none. Plus toothpaste as it was double the price in tesco as amazon for exactly the same one.

nonperson 01-09-2020 04:51 PM

I've got Amazon parcels arriving too. They still deliver even if I'm in bed. =P

not_so_insig 01-09-2020 05:11 PM

Hope you have something nice in your amazon order.

I have ordered some stuff from pets at home but it hasn't been sent yet.

nonperson 01-09-2020 06:05 PM

An odd selection of new bird feeders, duck food, beeswax wraps and new shampoo. =)
