The best flavour

I love bacon but I never buy it because I won't get through a whole packet before I have to chuck it

not_so_insig 11-02-2021 04:05 PM

You can freeze it Beckie

Cacoethes 11-02-2021 04:08 PM

I won't cook things from frozen unless it's meant to be frozen and has instructions on how to cook from frozen

nonperson 11-02-2021 05:27 PM

It's easy to get through a pack of bacon before it goes off... o.O

Cacoethes 11-02-2021 05:28 PM

I suppose I could if I tried!

nonperson 11-02-2021 05:37 PM

Pack of 6 thick cut rashers does two bacon sarnies. =)

Cacoethes 11-02-2021 06:09 PM

I could probably manage that!

I've just had a very enjoyable shower. I'm not sure what was enjoyable about it. I just really felt good being under the water. Random.

nonperson 11-02-2021 07:10 PM

I like that feeling of being under water in a shower too. Can't explain it.

I've just been for a covid test and am currently covid negative. Woo hoo. =)

Cacoethes 11-02-2021 07:35 PM

Yaaaay! That is good news! :-D

nonperson 11-02-2021 07:42 PM

I don't have symptoms or anything but they're doing tests in my town for people who can't work from home so it is reassuring that I'm not spreading it around work without knowing. I think we can get tested twice a week o.o

Cacoethes 11-02-2021 08:09 PM

Yeah the staff in hospital got tested twice a week.
Patients tested once a week.
I hate covid tests. They are horrible!

tamobhuuta 11-02-2021 08:15 PM

Our L has to do the test because she works in a school, it looks very uncomfortable.

Cacoethes 11-02-2021 08:17 PM

It is incredibly uncomfortable

nonperson 11-02-2021 08:26 PM

I didn't find it uncomfortable at all really.

Cacoethes 11-02-2021 08:50 PM

Did you do it yourself or did another person do it for you?

nonperson 11-02-2021 08:58 PM

Did it myself. That probably made a difference.

Cacoethes 11-02-2021 09:02 PM

Yeah. When nurses do it they proper shove it down your throat and basically poke your brain when they put it up the nose

nonperson 11-02-2021 09:07 PM

That's exactly what I was hoping wouldn't happen. The guy kept telling me to stick it further up my nose though. Tonsil swabbing was weird, I found it hard to tell whether I was poking enough.

Cacoethes 11-02-2021 09:13 PM

It is hard to tell when you're doing it yourself.
That's why I always preferred the nurses doing it. Just in case I did it wrong!
I'm sure you did it well though!

nonperson 11-02-2021 09:24 PM

Well I did it well enough to get a result so it must have been ok.

I've just ordered loads of fudge. =)

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 09:32 AM

Yay fudge!

Morning everyone

nonperson 12-02-2021 10:14 AM


I couldn't buy fudge as a gift without buying some for myself too.

How's everyone?

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 10:18 AM

I may have to order some fudge now! You've made me want it :p

I'm ok thanks.
How are you?

nonperson 12-02-2021 10:26 AM

I did buy it from that place you use actually, if that helps at all with the fudge cravings. =P

I'm ok, bit tired and lacking in motivation and trying not to be annoyed with people.

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 10:37 AM

I hope you like it! You'll have to let me know what you think!
I think I'm going to have to order some!

Are you at work today np?
I always found people at work annoying

nonperson 12-02-2021 11:15 AM

I'm sure I will like it! Some of the flavours looked amazing. =D

Yeah I'm at work. And all weekend and next week too, which sucks. Although the at weekend I'll only be a couple of hours each day.

I have a low tolerance for annoying people I think (or my standards are far too high) but we do seem to have a particularly special selection of irritating people here.

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 11:28 AM

Yeah they have a good selection of flavours!
Which ones did you get?

Ugh that does suck :(

I do too.

one_step_closer 12-02-2021 11:42 AM

Hi everyone.

I am confused about fudge, I think I got some here and was expecting it to be squishy but it was hard like tablet. Then I got some dairy fudge and it was squishy.

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 11:46 AM

Hi lindsay

Which do you prefer?
I like tablet

nonperson 12-02-2021 11:46 AM

I think it depends on the fudge! Some is smooth and creamy and others are quite like... crunchy I think is the description. Like granular but chewy? Not hard though.

I bought some Scottish tablet because I'd heard people talking about it and wanted to try! The other flavours were.... Cherry Bakewell, death by chocolate, heather honey and white chocolate. For me. And some more traditional flavours in the other gift box. =P

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 11:51 AM

Sounds good!
I always get tablet and Heather honey in my order!

nonperson 12-02-2021 12:20 PM

Heather honey sounded very yummy and Scottish to me!

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 12:23 PM

It is very yummy!
And yes it does sound rather Scottish!

nonperson 12-02-2021 12:52 PM

I don't think I can wait for this judge now...

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 01:00 PM


I've just had a rather tasty blueberry muffin

nonperson 12-02-2021 01:26 PM


I've had some leftover pasta bake for lunch.

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 01:49 PM

Mmm pasta bake!

one_step_closer 12-02-2021 02:07 PM

Where is this place with amazing fudge?

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 02:19 PM

Ochil fudge pantry!
It's in Scotland

nonperson 12-02-2021 03:34 PM

Fudge has been dispatched! Just the thought of it is giving me a sugar rush. XD

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 03:47 PM

Ooo yay!
I'm excited for you!

nonperson 12-02-2021 04:21 PM

Haha, me too =D

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 04:26 PM


I've just upgraded my phone. Will be getting a new one on Monday! Excitement!

one_step_closer 12-02-2021 05:40 PM

This thread is a ball of excitement today!

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 05:41 PM

It is!
Love it!
Also, I have fajitas which is also exciting!

one_step_closer 12-02-2021 05:42 PM


What phone are you getting?

nonperson 12-02-2021 05:44 PM

Ooh new phone!

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 05:45 PM

A galaxy s21!

I'm sooo looking forward to getting it!

nonperson 12-02-2021 05:48 PM

Is it similar to what you have now?

Cacoethes 12-02-2021 05:57 PM

Yeah I have a galaxy S9 now so it will be similar. Except new and shiny!
